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.

Racist messages on OSU chat appear to have been organized effort (Gazette-Times)

Just minutes before the event started, an anonymous user posted a link to the chat on a site called 4chan.org, and called upon users of the site to message it. More than 500 anonymous comments followed on 4chan over the next few hours. Users, who appeared to be watching the video, mocked the speakers with racist and sexist slurs, and made threats aimed at specific speakers in the forum.

The world’s most sustainable high-rise construction material is…wood? (Portland Mercury)

Given this, Thomas Maness, dean of the College of Forestry at Oregon State University, says CLT’s a natural choice for green Portland. “[Concrete is] really energy intensive because you’ve got to pull the rocks out of the ground, haul them, grind them, heat them,” he says. “When you’re building with CLT, you’re basically building with the carbon dioxide the tree has pulled from the atmosphere as it grows.”

Corvallis company striving to produce first formaldehyde-free, bio-based adhesive for manufacturing particleboard and other wood products (Register-Guard)

The Corvallis company, EcoPro Polymers, is developing an adhesive that contains no urea-formaldehyde, a chemical that releases formaldehyde — known to cause cancer in humans. The company has received support from Oregon State University and Oregon BEST, a nonprofit focused on clean technology innovation.

Does being a Christian make any difference at all? (Huffington Post)

OSU’s Susan Shaw ponders what being a Christian means, and how those who identify as Christian treat others.

Betting a billion dollars against a bubble (All About Beer)

When the news broke, I pinged Oregon State University professor Patrick Emerson (and my Beervana podcast co-host) about the news. He agreed that Constellation is looking to the future. “This sum is eye popping, but I think you hit the nail on the head. They need an entry into craft beer and they are making a big bet that this brand can be built up. My reading of this move by Constellation is that this is a play to build Ballast Point into a major national brand.”

Wood’s heyday has arrived (Portland Tribune)

Farther south, a collaboration among Oregon State University’s colleges of forestry and engineering, and the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture and Allied Arts, has attracted state and federal funds. The National Center for Advanced Wood Products Manufacturing and Design will offer education and research on the design, engineering and construction of multistory buildings using wood products.

Storage advance may boost solar thermal energy potential (Engineer Live)

Engineers at Oregon State University have identified a new approach for the storage of concentrated solar thermal energy, to reduce its cost and make it more practical for wider use.

Tammy Bray (State of Reform)

It’s hard not to get caught up in Dean Tammy Bray’s enthusiasm for public health initiatives. At our Portland conference, we sat down with the Dean of the College of Public Health and Human Services at OSU to talk about what she is watching as the state continues its path of reform.

Sodaville still trucking in water (Democrat-Herald)

Hard rains have hit the mid-valley recently, but not enough yet to ease drought conditions, said Kathie Dello, deputy director of the Oregon Climate Service at Oregon State University.
