Today in the News Media

Today in the News Media is a synopsis of some of the most prominent coverage of OSU people and programs. Inclusion of any item constitutes neither an endorsement nor a critique, but rather is intended only to make the OSU community aware of significant items in the media.

A gray whale migrated nearly 14,000 miles, setting record (Washington Post)

The feat was recorded in a study published today in the journal “Biology Letters” by Oregon State University biologist Bruce Mate, chair of the school’s Marine Mammal Institute. Mate and his colleagues spent years tracking the migration of Western North Pacific gray whales, a critically endangered species living off the coast of Russia. What they found surprised them, in more ways than one. (see also Discovery News, National Geographic, Radio New Zealand)

University students push subcommittee for $755 million (Statesman Journal)

Ariah Suek, a student at Oregon State University and a member of the Oregon Student Association, spoke to a reality that many students at state school face: “There have been many times that I’ve worked three or four jobs a term,” Suek said. “It leaves an individual exhausted, and often school suffers.”

Vitamin E deficiency linked with neurological damage (New Hope 360)

Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered how vitamin E deficiency may cause neurological damage by interrupting a supply line of specific nutrients and robbing the brain of the “building blocks” it needs to maintain neuronal health. (see also Red OrbitScience Daily, ALN)

When the permafrost goes, so does half the world’s buried carbon (Truth Dig)

And in the same issue of Nature Climate Change, a team led by researchers from Oregon State University have confirmed that any kind of warming or plant growth is likely to get the soil microbes working as hard as they can—partly because the plants use chemistry to free the soil carbon so the bacteria can start to turn it back into carbon dioxide.

Autism: new studies investigate diagnosis time and identify epigenetic signatures (Medical News Today)

Looking at autism diagnosis among young children, researchers from Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Oregon Health & Science University and Oregon State University in Corvallis assessed data from the 2011 Survey of Pathways to Diagnosis and Services. The study included 1,420 children with ASD and 2,098 children with nonspecific intellectual disability/developmental delay (ID/DD).

Scientists using drones to map out the ocean’s trash (EcoRazzi)

“There are special lenses that you can put on the drone’s camera, and you will get images that will show the plastics very well, separate from the background,” said Ari Friedlaender of the Marine Mammal Institute of Oregon State University. “Any data we can get from there will be informative. The first thing to do will be to count and quantify the debris. We will be able to tell what it is, and how much there is. And this information, in turn, might give us some indication of where it’s coming from. And then, once you know what you’ve got to deal with, you can come up with ways to mitigate and remove it and start cleaning up.”

Injury prevention programs not widely used in high schools, study shows (Medical Express)

Injury prevention programs can help reduce ankle, knee and other lower extremity injuries in sports, but the programs are not being widely used in high schools, a new study from Oregon State University has found.

Key committee approves canola extension (Capital Press)

A six-year moratorium on canola production in the Willamette Valley was approved by lawmakers in 2013, but 500 acres of the crop were allowed to be cultivated as part of a three-year study by Oregon State University. Under HB 3382, the crop would continue to be grown on 500 acres annually for the rest of the moratorium.

Boat remains, thought to be Japanese tsunami debris, deliver Asian fish to the Oregon coast (Oregonian)

“They’ve been in there for years,” said John Chapman, a marine invasion ecologist and adjunct professor at Oregon State University. “It’s amazing to think they survived.”

Dozens of Asian carp leap out of water, stunning rowing team (Weather Channel)

Now, they’re on the verge of reaching the Great Lakes, which could have major impacts on the local ecosystem. These bottom-feeders have a voracious appetite and can quickly eat up all of an important plant or small creature that has been a vital part of the local ecosystem for hundreds of years, according to Oregon State University’s Sea Grant.

A mile deep, ocean fish facing health impacts from human pollution (Environmental Research Web)

The findings have been published in Marine Environmental Research, by scientists from Oregon State University; the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science in the United Kingdom; and other agencies. It was supported by the European Union.
