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.

Wooden buildings as strong as steel (Newsweek)

This project, Albina Yard, is using CLT made from Oregon Douglas fir. At the DR Johnson plant three hours to the south—the first in the country to make structural-grade panels—the timber is planed down to a thickness of 1.375 inches, laid flat and set end to end in a single layer. Another layer is glued on top perpendicularly, then another layer glued perpendicular to that and so on—generally three layers of boards for walls and five for floors, according to Lech Muszynski, a wood science professor at Oregon State University—until it is sent into a massive custom-built press for a couple of hours while the glue sets.

OSU in PDX (Gazette-Times)

OSU’s president still delivers a State of the University address each fall to the Faculty Senate, a tradition that dates back many years on the Corvallis campus. But Ray’s annual winter trek up I-5 to give a Portland version of the speech has turned into a major production with the ability to grab at least a share of the spotlight on the state’s biggest stage.

Don’t count on the minimum wage boost to make childcare more affordable (Oregonian Editorial)

First, there are those costs that already determine a certain level of child-care pricing. Staffing, driven by regulations on caregiver-to-child ratios, accounts for about 80 percent of a center’s expenses, said Bobbie Weber, a faculty research associate with Oregon State University, who has researched child-care issues for more than two decades.

Oregon researchers tout potential of new manufactured wood in building industry (Register-Guard)

Oregon State University has been notified that it will receive a $447,000 grant from the federal Economic Development Administration for the testing of cross-laminated timber, or CLT.

Schools fight back against freshman 15 (Marketplace)

But most universities today would consider that an outdated notion. Over the last few decades, many have cut back on physical education requirements. According to a 2013 study (by OSU), only 39 percent of colleges, an all-time low, have exercise requirements.

Fire blight’s risk factors (Good Fruit Grower)

Dr. Ken Johnson, plant pathologist at Oregon State University, reminded growers at the Washington State Tree Fruit Association Annual Meeting about risk factors for fire blight, including the vigor of the tree (a vigorous tree can spread the disease more quickly) and among some of the newer cultivars, such as Jazz and Cripps Pink.

Tuition may increase across Oregon (News10)

Southern Oregon University is considering a 2.7% increase for undergraduate students. This would be about a $4 increase per credit. That is not the only school considering raising tuition, so is the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and other schools.

Ancient flowers probably poisonous (Earth Sky)

Researcher George Poinar, Jr. is a courtesy professor in the College of Science at Oregon State University, and one of the world’s experts on plant and animal life forms preserved in amber.

OSU names 2016 Distinguished Professors (Gazette-Times)

A climatologist and a computer scientist have received Oregon State University highest academic honor, the title of distinguished professor.

OSU lecture examines Supreme Court vacancy (Gazette-Times)

How best to fill the Supreme Court opening created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia will be the subject of a lecture at Oregon State University this afternoon. Jeffrey Segal, a distinguished professor at the State University of New York, will give a free, public talk at 4 p.m. today in the Horizon Room of OSU’s Memorial Union, 2501 S.W. Jefferson Way.

Artichoke growing tips (Oregonian)

Although most artichokes thrive in the cool, moist climate of coastal California, western Oregon is usually mild enough to grow these edible thistles as perennials if cut back and mulched in the winter, according to Jim Myers, plant breeder and researcher at Oregon State University.

In-Group Bias, Opportunism, and the First Amendment: Do Justices Defend the Speech They Hate? The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has once again highlighted the long-term importance of a Supreme Courts nominee’s ideology.   Jeff Segal, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Political Science, will report on an observational study that suggests that Supreme Court justices are biased regarding free speech claims from their own ideological grouping.  Monday, Feb. 22 at 4 p.m. in the Memorial Union, Horizon Room.
