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.

A titanic task: Blue whale bones salvaged for display at OSU site in Newport (Democrat-Herald)

When a whale is found on an Oregon beach, the first call goes out to Oregon State University’s stranding network. The stranding network’s first call goes to Bruce Mate, director of OSU’s Marine Mammal Institute in Newport.

Blue whale survey begins off Taranaki coast (Voxy)

An international research team, working in collaboration with the Department of Conservation (DOC), has begun work on an extended survey to learn more about blue whales feeding in the South Taranaki Bight off the Taranaki coast. The research covers an area of the Tasman Sea between Cape Egmont and Farewell Spit and is led by Oregon State University marine mammal expert Dr Leigh Torres.

Sneaker wave near Coos Bay caught on video: “It would have taken anybody in its path” (Oregonian)

“When you get into the beach, especially when you get into complicated areas like the rocks, you can get feedback – the previous wave changes the condition for the next wave,” Oregon State University oceanographer Robert Holman told The Oregonian in 2011. “If you had a previous wave that washed down at just the right time, that would reinforce the next wave. That can produce things that truly are dangerous and not expected.”

OSU study doesn’t find harm in water births (Statesman Journal)

There is no evidence that water births, where a baby is intentionally born under water in a tub or pool, poses any increased harm to the child, Oregon State University researchers have found.

Supporters working to keep German class afloat (Yakima Herald)

Oregon State University, meanwhile, has seen German majors increase from a handful to 140 in the past few years.

West Palm Beach doc, daughter expose drug price hikes up to 1,700 % (Palm Beach Post)

Middlemen can play a role, but “substantial industry consolidation” among manufacturers of certain drugs has led to cases of “monopolistic pricing,” said Daniel Hartung, an associate professor in Oregon State University’s College of Pharmacy.

Should you press pause on your DVD workout? (Elle Canada)

But not everyone is as inspiring as our moms’ fave fitness tapes, according to new research from Oregon State University. In fact, some of the bogus fitness claims – i.e. “you’ll look just like me – and hyper-sexualized imagery on this generation of exercise DVDs can be “psychologically harmful.”

OSU launches humanitarian engineering program (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University has a launched a humanitarian engineering program that will encourage students to make an impact — both locally and globally.

Applications flow in for ‘free’ community college (Bend Bulletin)

Another unknown: whether Oregon Promise grants could go to dually admitted students, those who take classes at community colleges and four-year schools. At Oregon State University-Cascades in Bend, which started enrolling freshmen in the fall, all undergraduates are dually admitted at COCC.

Snow storm season: Three things not to do with snow (Latinos Health)

However, Oregon State University’s professor of environmental and toxic ecology Staci Simonich warns that some snow may contain long-lost pesticides. Snow may also contain a mixture of soil when it falls to the ground, and especially when it has been plowed, so the snow will definitely be dirtier than you think.

OSU trustees to discuss housing, presidential compensation (Gazette-Times)

The Oregon State University Board of Trustees and its three standing committees will hold two days of meetings next week in the Horizon Room of the Memorial Union, 2501 S.W. Jefferson Way.

Oregon Coast scientists worry about some gray whale populations (Oregon Coast Beach Connection)

Scientists from Oregon State University in Corvallis and its Newport facility the Hatfield Marine Science Center say one segment of the gray whale population in the Pacific Ocean is not doing well.

Seeds of dreams (Register-Guard)

Cynthia Waters, an OSU Extension Service-Lane County Master Gardener, recommends planting marigolds around vegetable beds as a form of pest control. The flowers can be golden yellow, red or orange and require little care once planted, although they are not cold tolerant. Marigolds’ strong smell seems to discourage flying pests such as whiteflies, which attack tomatoes and peppers, and carrot flies.

Don’t buy seed-starting mix, make your own for less money (Oregonian)

Home gardeners can start vegetable and flower seedlings indoors from four to 12 weeks before the last average spring frost in their area, which means it’s time to get started. Making homemade planting medium can be more economical than buying a sterile mix at the store, said Brooke Edmunds, a horticulturist with Oregon State University’s Extension Service.
