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.

Role of chaos in deep ocean turned upside down (Nature)

In 1966, Munk suggested that turbulence drove this process, and calculated how much of it the oceans would need to power their great conveyor belts of water1. Over the years, his calculation went from controversial heresy to established wisdom. At first, expedition after expedition probing the upper reaches of the seas failed to find the intense mixing that he predicted, which was thought to be more-or-less uniform at different depths. “The community called this the ‘missing mixing’ problem,” says turbulence researcher William Smyth of Oregon State University in Corvallis.

Proper cow nutrition means healthier calves (Western Producer)

Cows need zinc, cobalt, manganese and copper during the third trimester of pregnancy. “We are flushing nutrients into the fetus to make sure they are receiving all they need for development,” said Reinaldo Cooke of Oregon State University.

OSU Bend campus continues to take shape (Bend Bulletin)

Oregon State University-Cascades has continued to make progress on the development of its new 10-acre campus on Bend’s west side.

4 medications that don’t work if you’re overweight or obese (Everyday Health)

For drugs to work effectively, they need to reach the proper concentration at various sites in the body, says David Bearden, PharmD, chair of the department of pharmacy practice and associate professor of pharmacotherapy at the College of Pharmacy at Oregon State University in Corvallis.

Students shouldn’t have to choose between books and food (Chronicle of Higher Education)

Commentary by Clare Cady, former OSU HRSC director.

OSU to share $10 million grant for sustainability research (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University will continue work to expand computer science research on projects that impact sustainability with an infusion of grant money from the National Science Foundation.

With Newport facility in site, wave energy prepares for $1 million win in Salem (Portland Business Journal)

A Ways and Means subcommittee on Thursday approved an $800,000 appropriation to Oregon State University and its Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, which for several years has been working on plans for a site offshore from Newport, with preliminary backing from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Hemp crop gets attention in county (Argus Observer)

Oregon State University is working to address that hurdle and has approved a hemp seed certification process, establishing a seed certification standard, said Jay Noller, a professor at OSU and head of the Department of Crop and Soil Science.

River recharge efforts under a disadvantage in state law (Arizona Daily Star)

Michael Campana, an Oregon State University hydrology professor, said he suspects that a properly designed, located, built and maintained artificial recharge project would function better than recharge in a stream channel, particularly one that carried a high sediment load during a flood.

How drones help us study the climate, forecast weather (Chemical & Engineering News)

Ben Franklin is famously rumored to have studied weather phenomenon by tying objects to kites, and Chad W. Higgins briefly considered this strategy to collect the data he wanted—data that could improve weather forecasts. But then Higgins, an environmental engineer at Oregon State University, realized a quadcopter would offer his team more control. And it sounded like more fun to fly.

Well contamination by Pennsylvania military bases has neighbors on edge (Burlington County Times)

The military began using the firefighting foams in the late 1960s because the compounds mix easily with water to produce a solution that blankets and smothers oil fires and vapors. The foams quickly became an essential tool for the military, according to Jennifer Field, a professor of environmental and molecular toxicology at Oregon State University who has been studying these compounds for decades.

Night Market (Gazette-Times)

By contrast the Night Market in Oregon State University’s Memorial Union on Sunday had about a dozen stalls. But with cheery lights draped over tents, the scent of hot food in the air, and more than 300 attendees playing games, eating and watching performances, the OSU Taiwanese Students Association’s event perhaps captured a bit of the atmosphere of the Taiwanese tradition.

Equal parts beauty and bounty in edible landscape (Register-Guard)

“Turf is sort of the lowest common denominator in ground covers,” says Weston Miller, a horticulturist with the Oregon State University Extension Service in Portland. “It takes more work, specialized timing and tools. The advantage with edibles is that they provide more (wildlife) habitat and they also look good.”

Think Too Much: Hey pollsters, give me a call (Gazette-Times)

There’s a reason why I was interested in staying on the line: In more than 30 years of reporting on various polls, I can’t recall another time when I was contacted by a legitimate pollster asking about national issues. The call got me interested enough in the state of polling that I tracked down a political scientist at Oregon State University, Christopher Stout, an assistant professor who has done research on the topic.
