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.

Southern right whale study quantifies impact of whaling in New Zealand’s waters (ABC Australia)

But, while southern right whale populations are still just a fraction of their original size, they are recovering, said study co-author Dr C. Scott Baker, the director of the Marine Mammal Institute at Oregon State University. (see also Guardian, eScience News)

Recordings in Deep Sea poses a larger noise pollution problem (International Business Times Australia)

The deep sea exploration, which was conducted by researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOOA), together with academics from Oregon State University, measured the amount of noise pollution in the Pacific Ocean using a hydrophone — a powerful underwater microphone.

One fish, two fish, test fish, control fish (US EPA)

With so many chemicals in the world today and even more under development, scientists need a rapid, economical, and accurate way to screen for chemicals that may be harmful to humans and wildlife.  The use of zebrafish in high-throughput testing is increasingly important to chemical research initiatives at EPA.  In fact, zebrafish studies by Dr. Noyes (in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Tanguay at Oregon State University) recently received national acclaim for their contribution toward flame retardant research.

Thoreau’s fern (Gazette-Times)

Meyers is the taxonomic director of the Oregon Flora Project, which is in the process of publishing an updated scientific description of every plant that grows in Oregon. The project’s office is right across the hall from the OSU Herbarium, which houses roughly half a million pressed plant specimens in thick manila folders filed away in rows of steel storage cabinets. Meyers was doing research in the herbarium about 10 years ago when he made the scholarly discovery of a lifetime: a fern collected by Henry David Thoreau, the 19th century philosopher-naturalist who wrote “Walden.”

US millennials feel more working class than any other generation (Guardian)

The graduate student and teaching assistant, who lives in Corvallis, Oregon, says he is “less interested in having a successful stock market than I am in having government policies that help the wealth of this nation, that help the citizens of the nation.” “The numbers that show up in the Wall Street Journal don’t concern me. What concerns me is whether or not I’m going to be able to afford to go to the hospital if I need to.”

In our view: Fishing for solutions (The Columbian editorial)

All of which brings into sharp relief a new study from Oregon State University and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, with the findings adding a new variable to discussions about how to improve salmon survival rates and preserve one of the Northwest’s cultural landmarks. The study identified crucial differences between wild salmon and hatchery salmon, and co-author Michael Blouin, a professor of biology at Oregon State, told the Corvallis Gazette-Times: “I think it lays to rest the question of whether wild fish and hatchery fish can be genetically different. It’s very clear that they’re adapting in ways that make them unfit in the wild and that are detectable at the genetic level.”

Have a date with your shrub before getting out the clippers (Herald & News)

You’ve got clippers in hand, a shrub in mind and a gleam in your eye. It’s pruning time. But do you have a plan? Before you clip a stem, know your shrub, said Neil Bell, horticulturist for Oregon State University’s Extension Service.
