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.

What it looks like when a university truly fixes how it handles sexual assault (Huffington Post)

But Tracy said OSU’s president, Ed Ray, was different.  “Ed Ray really stepped up to the plate — not just said something, but actually did take it seriously,” Tracy told The Huffington Post. “I’m very confident in this point that he really does care and gets it.” After Tracy came forward, Oregon State issued a public apology for how it had responded to her report more than a decade earlier. And then the school hired her to be a consultant on how it should handle sexual assault. Rather than freezing out the whistleblower, OSU regularly brings Tracy in to speak to classes, sports teams and members of Greek life about sexual violence. In February, she spoke at an OSU conference on healthy masculinity.

Is algae the key to beating cancer? (Daily Mail)

Scientists have discovered a new compound in algae that has potent anti-cancer abilities. A team of Oregon State University experts found that the compound is capable of fighting two of the most aggressive forms of the disease – brain tumors and triple negative breast cancer. The compound, called coibamide A, cuts off cancer cells’ ability to communicate with blood vessels and other cells – which triggers the diseased cell’s death.

Helping calves before they’re born (Successful Farming)

Reinaldo Cooke, a beef specialist at Oregon State University, did a recent study on the topic. The issue actually started in humans, he says, where it’s well known that babies thrive better when their moms are in a positive nutritional state during pregnancy.

Walk while you work: Do treadmill desks help? (GotScience)

John Schuna, assistant professor of exercise and sports science in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at OSU, recently set out to measure the effectiveness of such desks in changing worker behavior. “There’s been a societal shift to more sedentary work and we are not making it up in our leisure time,” Schuna says.
