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.

‘Go Baby Go’ gives safe toy cars to special needs kids (KGW)

A program called “Go Baby Go” is giving kids with disabilities a chance to move like they never have before. “We’re taking toy cars and modifying them,” explained OSU Assistant Professor Sam Logan.

Runaway drug prices (NY Times)

Drugs used to treat multiple sclerosis are of particular concern. A recent study by researchers in Oregon (OSU) found that first-generation drugs that came on the market in the 1990s ranged in price from $8,000 to $11,000 a year. Prices for those drugs rose even though new drugs entered the market, theoretically providing competition. One drug that first cost $8,700 now costs $62,400 a year.

The power of building winners over trying to win (Forbes)

Sam Greenblatt epitomizes this. He is the second assistant coach for men’s crew at Oregon State University now and coached at the Atlanta Junior Rowing Association previously. He describes himself as a “teacher with a whistle,” “lucky to be doing what I’m doing.”

Geologist outlines earthquake ‘time bombs’ in upcoming book (Phys Org)

An emeritus Oregon State University geologist, who was one of the first scientists to point to the possibility of a major earthquake in the Pacific Northwest, outlines some of the world’s seismic “time bombs” in a forthcoming book.

Oregon scientists lead underwater research (KUOW)

Scientists from Oregon State University recently installed four large buoys off the coast which will soon begin measuring oxygen levels, acidity, and other biological and chemical data which will help us learn more about the health of the ocean. Each bouy is tethered to the ocean floor, weighs over 10,000 pounds, and is loaded with scientific instruments which will be gathering data 24 hours a day for at least 5 months (see also Jefferson Public Radio)

Signs of underwater volcanic eruption south of BC coast (Weather Channel)

Geologists Bill Chadwick of Oregon State University and Scott Nooner of the University of North Carolina Wilmington predicted the eruption in a blog post in 2014. (see also UK Progressive)

Vigil honors Nepal (Register-Guard)

Yasha Bajracharya huddled with family members while trying to sleep in a cramped apartment just below their home. On April 25, six days before the Oregon State University student was set to return home from a one-month trip to Kathmandu to visit family, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck about 110 miles northwest of the Nepalese capital.

Regional incubator wins national award (Gazette-Times)

Oregon RAIN was recognized in the economic development category for its success in promoting startup companies in the south Willamette Valley and mid-coast region.

The Drone Singer strikes back for Star Wars Day (Network World)

I should have known that Victor Villegas — the Oregon State University Extension Service tech guy I profiled recently — would be launching one of his drone-inspired ditties for May 4, Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be With You).

As worldwide extinction speeds up, large plant-eaters could be the first to go (Oregonian)

Oregon State University professor William Ripple led a team of scientists from around the world on a new study that adds an exclamation point to recent reports that human activity will drive one in 13 of the world’s species to extinction.

Single-payer activists outline possible 2016 ballot measure (The Lund Report)

But as Professor Chunhuei Chi of Oregon State University pointed out to The Lund Report, the United States already spends more tax money on healthcare than many industrialized countries without a universal healthcare system. In addition to Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran’s Affairs and the Indian Health Service, state, federal and local governments spend an enormous amount of money on public employee health costs. The government also loses revenue from tax expenditures given to businesses that provide healthcare for their employees.

Animals featured in OSU celebration of ag day (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University senior Lakin McCarthy was on her way to class Tuesday afternoon when she saw something a little unusual in the Memorial Union Quad: sheep. “I was walking and I was like ‘oh my god — animals!’” she said. “I just had to pet the sheep because I’ve been working with wool all week.”

Fueled for success (Herald & News)

Mills Elementary is all about healthy foods and being active. The Oregon State University Klamath Basin Research and Extension Center has been working to teach children where their food comes from, ways to try healthy foods and how to be active.

Snail genetic variation associated with resistance to schistosomiasis (JAMA)

Schistosomes are transmitted by snail vectors that naturally vary in resistance to this parasite even within species. A team led by Oregon State University investigators artificially selected snails for resistance and found that a dominant allele in 1 particular genomic region conveys an 8-fold decrease in the risk of schistosomiasis infection.

Equine herpes virus intensifies, diversifies in Oregon horses (Equus)

The neurotropic case and one of the “typical” EHV cases have been admitted to the Lois Bates Acheson Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine in Corvallis. The university shared a bulletin with us on Tuesday night about the cases in Oregon. According to the university statement, the initial case of EHV-1 is being treated in isolation at OSU, and only had the more common “wild” strain of the virus. That horse did show neurologic symptoms, although animals with that strain of EHV-1 more often have a disease that causes respiratory infection or abortion in pregnant mares. (see also KTVZ)
