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 students discuss campus racism (Gazette-Times)

The audience of at least 500 was respectfully quiet as students of color spoke about their personal experiences with racism at Oregon State University, some in tears as they talked. Online it was a different story: accompanying the university’s live video feed of the event at Gill Coliseum on Monday night was a steady stream of vile, racist messages aimed at the speakers and minorities in general, posted by anonymous commenters. (see also Daily Barometer. For photos of the event: http://bit.ly/1PMbukT)

Safe spaces play important role in community-based HIV prevention, study finds (Medical Xpress)

The creation and sustainment of “safe spaces” may play a critical role in community-based HIV prevention efforts by providing social support and reducing environmental barriers for vulnerable populations, a new study from an Oregon State University researcher has found. (see also News-Medical)

RoboBees can fly and swim. What’s next? Laser vision (Smithsonian)

Michael Olsen, an associate professor of geomatics at Oregon State University, works with lidar to study topography and terrain mapping, using mainly ground-based scanners to look at coastal erosion, safety of bridges and earthquake engineering.

Lawmakers feel new influence to raise minimum wage (Statesman Journal)

According to testimony submitted Monday by Oregon State University economics professor Bruce Weber, more than 40 percent of income in Oregon goes to the top 10 percent of earners. That percentage has increased sharply since the ’90s. In contrast, wages for middle and low income earners have stayed flat or declined.

Are there critters and germs in my library books? (Wall Street Journal)

Alicia Leytem, pesticide specialist at the National Pesticide Information Center at Oregon State University, and Michael Z. David, an assistant professor of medicine, specializing in infectious disease, at the University of Chicago, explain what other unwanted guests might hitchhike home from your local reading room on “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

Bugs help researchers study stream health in ag land (Capital Press)

Researchers with the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality and Oregon State University say analyzing insect populations is often the best way to assess water quality, and the data can create opportunities for agricultural land owners.

Breast implants could be used to study pollution in the human body (Grist)

“These breast implants — there are tens of thousands — are being disposed of as waste,” study author Kim Anderson, a chemist at Oregon State University, told the Bend Bulletin. “They could be a resource to understand the contaminants and chemical load in women. They could be a huge resource for understanding the actual levels in our body.”

How drug companies get away with drastically raising prescription drug prices (CBS Denver)

Dan Hartung researches MS drug prices at Oregon State University and says the top nine therapies have “increased substantially” over the past 20 years. He says currently, there are no MS drugs in the United States with a list price below $50,000 a year.

Local malt: The next step for craft American whiskey (The Whiskey Wash)

Mecca Grade grows and malts a specific variety of barley called Full Pint, which was developed at Oregon State University for another flagship Oregon industry: craft brewing.
