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’s Strand Hall returns to its former glory (Capital Press)

Strand Hall, the home of the Oregon State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences for the past century, reopens Tuesday in Corvallis after a $25 million restoration project.

5 schools where you can turn your taste for beer into a career (USA Today)

Oregon State University too has a history in educating brewers; their Fermentation Science program is by far the most popular of their three options of study within their Food Sciences major — with 65% of students opting to study craft brewing. In an interview with USA TODAY College Tom Shellhammer, Nor’Wester Professor of Fermentation Science at OSU, says the recent industry growth has led to many students asking themselves how they can be a part of the movement.

Robots learn to walk (Nanowerk)

Humanoid robots are intended to become more and more like people. But walking on two legs – one of the characteristic features of the human being – continues to pose particular problems to these machines. Dr. Daniel Renjewski of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), together with his colleagues at Oregon State University, has developed a robot whose gait comes closer than ever before to that of humans. The results of their study could also be used to develop better prostheses.

Bacon innovation is down, but certainly not out (Washington Post)

The good news, of course, is that the adoption of just about any new food product as a symbol of creativity might lead to another great wave of American innovation. That’s because — you guessed it — bacon innovators can make any product better, even seaweed. This summer, in case you missed it, Oregon State researchers patented a new strain of red algae — dulse — that tastes like bacon when cooked and comes with twice the nutritional content of kale. Bacon innovators may be down, but certainly not out.

High-tech timber: Universities, timber industry craft new product (KMTR)

Cross-laminated timber is touted as a high-tech, sustainable product developed by the Oregon State University College of Forestry, put to work by the University of Oregon’s architecture school – and manufactured by D.R. Johnson Lumber in Riddle.

As Pacific Northwest prepares for the ‘Big One,’ coastal towns grapple with how to save lives (Newser)

Chris Goldfinger, author of a study that concluded there is a 37 percent chance of the Cascadia Subduction Zone rupturing in the next 50 years, said he wishes decision-makers “would consider buying an airplane ticket to Japan and take a walk around the tsunami zone.” “You have to go there … to really capture what destructive power means,” said Goldfinger, a professor of geology and geophysics at Oregon State University.

Ocean’s hidden green plankton revealed by fixing a glitch in the model (New Scientist)

Taking these changes into account, Behrenfeld’s team has now found that in 40 per cent of the ocean, more than 85 per cent of drops in chlorophyll levels are caused by acclimatisation to different light conditions rather than a reduction in phytoplankton.

Poison in Small Doses (Terra)

Since 2002, Molly Kile and her partners — students and physicians at the Dhaka Community Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health — have turned Bangladesh into a laboratory for arsenic toxicology. With the help of people in rural communities, what they are learning could do more than address a crisis in South Asia. A 2007 study estimated that about 137 million people worldwide are exposed to water that exceeds the World Health Organization’s arsenic limit of 10 parts per billion. Kile is an assistant professor in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences.

Move over wheat, demand rises for ancient alternative (KPLU)

Research agronomist Rich Roseberg of the OSU Klamath Basin Research and Extension Center estimated that farmers and ranchers planted about 7,000 acres of teff in Washington state and 4,000 acres in Oregon each year since 2010. He based his estimate on seed sales and communications with county extension agents.

OSU-Cascades could expand campus to pumice mine (OPB)

Oregon State University-Cascades held a public meeting Monday about the potential of building on a former pumice mine in west Bend. (see also Bend Bulletin)

Distributor an organic pioneer (Capital Press)

Such cooperation was key to the success of small organic farms, which could not economically deliver fruits and vegetables to grocery stores on an individual basis, said Larry Lev, an Oregon State University agricultural economist who studies local food systems.

Feds grant nearly $200,000 in C. Oregon food programs (KTVZ)

These grant projects will improve the purchasing of local food by restaurants, universities and other businesses, and expand consumer choice and access to fresh and healthy food. Working with Oregon State University and the local OSU Extension office, this grant will also improve farmer assistance programs to help grow their
operations.
