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.

Early literacy important for ELLs (Language Magazine)

“This study shows that building literacy skills, in English or the child’s native language, prior to kindergarten can be helpful,” said Karen Thompson, an assistant professor of cultural and linguistic diversity in OSU’s College of Education and lead author of the study.

Homecoming surprise: Carnival lures students into fun (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University freshmen Bruno Maraccini and Makenzie Swiger had a little surprise coming out of their class Thursday afternoon: a carnival filling the Memorial Union Quad. The carnival, which featured mechanical bull riding, inflatable slides and play structures, old-fashioned games like ring toss and free shaved ice, among other things, was part of the university’s celebration of homecoming. Although some students participating in the activities said they’d been emailed about the event earlier this week, many, like Maraccini and Swiger, said they were not aware of the carnival in advance.

Strand Agricultural Hall re-opens after seismic, accessibility remodel (LIFE@OSU)

The event will be Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 3 p.m., beginning at the West Portico Entrance that faces the Memorial Union Quad. The celebration, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by tours.

This massive wave machine is for science, not fun (Wired)

The project isn’t about making really big waves for the sake of making really big waves, though, says Dan Cox, a coastal engineering professor at Oregon State University, which houses the largest research wave machine in North America. The purpose of wave machines is pretty simple: to see how human-made structures—breakwaters, seawalls, giant concrete blocks—stand up to crashing waves and giant storms before millions of people trust them to protect them from the elements.

Gene therapy with Leptin induces weight loss (Medical Research) 

“Leptin, a hormone produced by fat cells plays an essential role in weight regulation. Delivery of leptin directly into the hypothalamus by gene therapy normalizes body weight. We investigated the efficacy of using hypothalamic leptin gene therapy as an alternative method for reducing weight in skeletally-mature female rats and determined the impact of leptin-induced weight loss on bone. Our findings show that hypothalamic leptin gene therapy reduced body weight with minimal effects on bone mass or microarchitecture.” Urszula T. Iwaniec, associate professor, School of Biological and Population Health Sciences, OSU. (see also Science 2.0, The Statesman, The Independent)

Vitamin D, hops ingredient: New tool to fight obesity? (KTVZ)

To explore and identify the specific mechanisms by which these compounds have beneficial effects, researchers in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University have received a new five-year, $2.64 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.

Language of the Sublime (Terra)

After 35 years as a Distinguished Professor of art history at Oregon State University — 13 of them at OSU-Cascades — Henry Sayre has taken on the emeritus mantel. But for him, retirement from the classroom doesn’t mean a chaise lounge by the seashore. He’s already well into his next project, a provocative book about the racial overtones and economic undertones of Manet’s masterpiece, Olympia, which has him scouring the archives of the Bibliotheque nationale de France for source materials.

Methodology could lead to more sustainable manufacturing systems (Irish Manufacturing)

Engineers at Oregon State University have developed a new “sustainable development methodology” to help address a social and regulatory demand for manufacturing processes that more effectively consider their economic, environmental and social impacts. (see also Factory Equipment)
