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.

Market on Oregon State campus now accepts SNAP (KVAL)

Oregon State University has become one of the few college campuses in the nation to participate in the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.

Move over, kale: Dulse is the superfood of the future (Fast Company)

Wild dulse, which is sold as a specialty item at places like Whole Foods, grows primarily on the shores of Ireland and the north Atlantic coast and is notoriously difficult to harvest: It’s plucked by hand and can deteriorate quickly. But the dulse that Paley sprinkles atop his tuna poke doesn’t come from the ocean—it’s farmed in 6,000-liter tanks at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center. Marine biologist Chris Langdon began cultivating this strain of dulse as a food for abalone in the mid-1990s, but it wasn’t until his colleague Chuck Toombs, from the OSU College of Business, toured the lab in 2014 that Langdon considered serving it to humans.

 Origins of the Black Death (World Archaeology Magazine)

Meanwhile, separate research, led by Oregon State University, which examined ancient bacteria attached to a flea that had become trapped in amber millions of years ago, believe it may be the oldest evidence of a very distant precursor of Y. pestis. George Poinar Jr, who studied the bacteria, told CWA, ‘If the fossil bacteria are related to Y. pestis, the discovery would show that it was around for millions of years, has travelled around much of the world, and predates the human race’.

OSU schedules events to honor King (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr., celebration will be held Jan. 11-22 with the theme “Injustice Anywhere is a Threat to Justice Everywhere.” (see also LIFE@OSU)

The Al Gore of Polynesia (Narrative.ly)

“We’re really in a race against the clock to figure out what we can do to preserve some of these important habitats,” says Rebecca Vega-Thurber, director of the Global Coral Microbiome Project, who studies corals on Moorea’s reefs.

Blending farmer’s harvest with retail, multifamily developments (Urbandland)

Events like concerts or farmers markets benefit the stores around them with extra traffic. The boost to sales for the stops next door to a farmers market can range from 30 percent to 90 percent of the sales at the farmers market itself, according to a study by Larry Lev and Gary Stephenson at Oregon State University. The bonus is likely to be higher if the farmers market is open at the same time as the retail stores around it, instead of early in the morning before they open, and if the farmers market is in a densely developed location, so that the nearest retail shops are an easy walk from the market.

Ag in the Classroom brings its story to show (Capital Press)

Oregon Ag in the Classroom is part of a national program aimed at educating students about agriculture. The nonprofit organization, which is housed at Oregon State University, works with teachers to bring agriculture into everyday curriculum.

OSU Extension Service supporters renew push for Lane County property tax levy (Register-Guard)

But after Lane County commissioners eliminated the county government’s roughly $483,000 in annual payments to the service in 2008, staffing has dwindled to 10.5 full time positions today. A roughly $1.4 million annual budget for the Lane County chapter before the cuts now stands at $839,000. The money comes mainly from OSU and from fees the service charges to residents who use its programs and classes.

OSU Herbarium is growing (Gazette-Times)

The Oregon State University Herbarium, already the largest collection of plant specimens in the state, is expanding.

Just three questions: Study finds a better way to counsel pharmacy patients (Gazette-Times)

Boyce, the director of pharmacy services at Oregon State University’s Student Health Center, has believed that by asking the questions, a pharmacist ends up with a better sense of what patients know — and, maybe more important, what they don’t know. The pharmacist can fill in those gaps. The result should be patients who are better informed about their prescriptions.

Some exercise DVDs do more harm than good (Psych Central)

A study of 10 popular commercial exercise DVDs showed that the fitness videos may be perpetuating and reinforcing hyper-sexualized and unrealistic body images, said Brad Cardinal, Ph.D., a kinesiology professor in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University. (see also BustleIrish Health, Newser)

OSU bans hoverboards in dorms, cafeterias, considering campus restrictions (Gazette-Times)
