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.

Fishing for the first Americans (Nature)

Loren Davis, an archaeologist at Oregon State University in Corvallis, is searching for the ancient seafarers in an unusual spot — at a site in Idaho called Cooper’s Ferry, which is on a bank of the Salmon River, hundreds of kilometres away from the coast. At the dig site in August, Davis examines a piece of rock brought to him by one of his field crew. He turns it over to see whether it was shaped by human hands, perhaps by early toolmakers who littered the ground with flakes of rock as they worked.

 ‘Monster’ wildfire season grips west coast residents with fear of future devastation (Guardian)

Professor Roger Hammer of Oregon State University in Corvallis studies the increased danger posed by fires as a result of people living in wilderness settings and how to mitigate those risks. He says that the cost of firefighting has perhaps doubled since more of us in the American west have moved into areas where, in another age, no one would have thought to build a house – ridge-tops, forests and canyons.

What lies beneath (Big Picture Science)

OSU’s Chris Goldfinger talks about the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

Oregon State graduates give big for humanitarian engineering, melding science and social impact (Oregonian)

Two Oregon State University alumni hope to help change that. Gretchen and Richard Evans recently gave $1.5 million to OSU’s humanitarian engineering program, a field in which engineering is used to improve the lives of people in poor and marginalized communities.

OSU study highlights confusion over end-of-life antibiotic use (Portland Business Journal)

A survey of Oregon hospice programs found 31 percent had policies for initiating use of antibiotics and only 17 percent had a policy for when to discontinue their use, according to a study from Oregon State University.

The village that will be swept away (The Atlantic)

“In almost every disaster event in America, from Hurricane Sandy to tornadoes in Oklahoma, the rally cry of ‘we will rebuild’ and FEMA’s support of rebuilding in place exemplifies the hazard-centric idea that disasters are one-off aberrations of normal conditions and that increased warning infrastructure, response plans, and technological interventions can prevent the next disaster,” writes Elizabeth Marino, an (OSU-Cascades) anthropologist who has studied Shismaref and has a book coming out about the town’s efforts to move. “Rebuilding in the same way, in the same place leaves no space for reconsidering our relationship with the environment.”

The acidifying oceans (Register-Guard editorial)

An Oregon State University study published this week in the Journal of Shellfish Research says that more than 75 percent of oyster growers surveyed said they were either “extremely” or “very” concerned about ocean acidification — a percentage far greater than the general public. Many reported economic losses, particularly in “hot spots” such as off the coast of Oregon. Some shellfish farmers have moved their operations, while others have been forced to alter the way they operate because of changes to the oceans.

Ted Cruz says it’s always been that babies born to US citizens abroad are citizens from birth (Politifact)

To our inquiries, experts on U.S. citizenship advised by email that an act passed into law by the very first Congress in March 1790 said children born abroad to citizens could be U.S. citizens — a form of “derivative citizenship.”Christopher McKnight Nichols, an Oregon State University historian, said by email: “Since the Naturalization Law of 1790, it is clear that Congress attempted to establish a citizenship right for children born of citizens abroad.”

David Sarasohn: Climate change turning Portland into Phoenix (Oregonian Opinion)

Oregon State University marine studies professor Jane Lubchenco didn’t catch all of Oregon’s summer; in her capacity as U.S. science envoy for the oceans, she spent a lot of time on the other side of the world. But in her years as director of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (2009-2013), she saw “the most extreme four years’ weather,” with 70 Atlantic hurricanes, 770 major tornadoes, six major floods and “unprecedented” blizzards, and “the patterns are only continuing.”

David Hill turns 50 (Oregon Wine Press)

These questions may soon be resolved by Laurent Leduc, a plant geneticist at Oregon State University, working under a grant from the Erath Foundation. He has samples of many known Pinot Noir clones planted in Oregon and plans to use genetic markers to differentiate among them. He also has samples of unknown material, including some from Coury’s first Pinot Noir planting. Leduc’s hope is to compare the unknown vines to the clones he can identify.

The science of a strong start (Huffington Post)

A piece co-written by Megan M. McClelland, PhD, Katherine E. Smith Healthy Children and Families Professor, Hallie E. Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families, Oregon State University.

Orcilia Zuñiga Forbes, Oregon State University trustee, dies at 77 (Oregonian)

Local teachers learn to make the outdoors their classroom (Houston Chronicle)

Mitchell told the group that this had been verified by more in-depth investigations, all of which concluded that the mussels at the site are not reproducing. Oregon State University researchers have determined that some of the mussels at the site are about 55 years old. Their lifespan is around 60 to 70 years.

State report tracks economic, demographic change in rural Oregon (Capital Press)

Climate change may cost fisherman more time, money finding brook trout (AccuWeather)

“Increases in air and river water temperatures predicted by climate change will result in fewer streams that are cold enough to support brook trout,” DeWeber, now a postdoctoral research scholar at Oregon State University, said.

KCC, OSU to sign off on public safety center Thursday (Herald & News)

Game-day challenge (Gazette-Times)

The 40,000 or so people who show up for Oregon State University home football games produce mountains of trash and recyclable material, more than 10 tons per contest, say university officials.

Corvallis native wins Miss Rodeo Oregon title previously held by her sister (Gazette-Times)

Katie Schrock, who played basketball for Oregon State University, said seeing her sister traveling to rodeo events throughout the state and country inspired her to pursue the crown for herself after she stopped playing college basketball in March 2013.

Sheriff: 57-mile stolen motorcycle chase ends with suspect swimming in river (Fox 12)

In Brownsville, investigators said the motorcyclist stopped on a bridge crossing the Calapooia River, got off and jumped in the water. Lewallen was arrested about 100 yards downstream from the bridge. During the lengthy chase, deputies learned the motorcycle was reported as stolen from the Oregon State University campus.

Metro’s youth ranger program focuses on science and nature (Gresham Outlook)

Whit Bouton believes to be interested in something — whatever it may be — you have to really know about it. When he met with Metro regional government leaders to discuss a youth program partnership with Oregon State University extension, his belief was a driving force in what became the Blue Lake Young Rangers Program.

OSU session highlights tools sized for Oregon’s small farms (Capital Press)

A Sept. 22 workshop at Oregon State University in Corvallis highlights tools specifically developed or revised for small-scale farms.

Nationwide teacher shortage not affecting Central Oregon (Bend Bulletin)

OSU-Cascades reports a growing number of applicants for its teacher program. Of the 38 teachers it graduated in June, nearly all are employed, mostly in Central Oregon, said Carolyn Platt, a senior instructor and program lead.

Data visualizations: 11 ways to bring analytics to life (Information Week)

“People want graphics that can do cognitive heavy lifting for them and help them explore their ideas. They want to dig into the data in a way that lets them test their own hypotheses and think about their own data biases when they encounter a dataset,” said Daniel Faltesek, an assistant professor of social media at Oregon State University, in an interview. “They don’t want people to tell them what to think about the dataset. They want to play with it and understand it themselves.”
