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.

OSU President in Bend: ‘We need each of you’ (Bend Bulletin)

Looking to build support for a four-year campus in Bend, Oregon State University President Edward Ray called on the community to work together in his State of the University address in Bend on Thursday. (see also KTVZ, My Central Oregon)

A volcano may be erupting off the Oregon coast, scientists say (Oregonian)

To Bill Chadwick, an Oregon State University geologist, the eruption at Axial Seamount was not a surprise. He had predicted it would happen this year. He predicted the previous eruption, in 2011, too. (see also io9, OPBStatesman Journal)

OSU students to aid relief effort in Nepal (KPTV)

Two Oregon State University students are on their way to Nepal on a documentary film trip that has changed course. Christian Nishioka and Cole Miller were originally supposed to travel to Nepal with a group of medical experts from the nonprofit organization Cardio Start documenting heart surgeries in third world countries.

Robot takes next steps toward disaster response (CNN)

Oregon State University researchers have developed a robot that reproduces the dynamics and physics of human walking and running. (see also KVALKHBS Arkansas, WCTI Jacksonville)

Antarctic reveals 68,000 years of of history, hints at ocean’s role in temperature change (International Business Times)

A leading theory is that the oceans play a major role in transporting climate change from one hemisphere to the other. “The 200-year lag that we observe certainly hints at an oceanic mechanism,” Christo Buizert, a postdoctoral research at Oregon State University and lead author on the study, said in a statement. “If the climatic changes were propagated by the atmosphere, the Antarctic response would have occurred in a matter of years or decades, not two centuries. The ocean is large and sluggish, thus the 200-year time lag is a pretty clear fingerprint of the ocean’s involvement.”

Neurological EHV detected in Marion County horse (The Horse)

The horse, which has been treated at Oregon State University’s (OSU) College of Veterinary Medicine’s Large Animal Hospital, began showing acute neurologic signs on April 28 and was immediately referred to OSU. The positive EHV-1 diagnosis was made April 29. All horses at the index property in Marion County have been quarantined. The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) reports there is no indication at this time that the virus has spread to other horses beyond those being quarantined. (see also KTVZ)

The economic impact of wolves (Ag Info)

Imagine lose $40,000 a year in your business, due to something beyond your control to change. How long could you remain in business?John Williams, Oregon State University Extension Specialist in Wallowa County, has been a part of an ongoing study that says that the losses for a 100 cow-calf pair beef operation equals about $40,000 a year. That would represent the loss of the unseen consequences and costs of running cattle in wolf areas — not the depredation costs.Williams continues with more details
