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.

Dolphins have a language that helps them solve problems together (New Scientist)

Unlike most dolphin vocalisations, the so-called “burst pulses” the dolphins made are audible to humans as a squawking sound. We already knew that dolphins use burst pulses during social interaction and echolocation. But according to Leigh Torres, a marine ecologist at Oregon State University, these new findings suggest that burst pulses may have another sophisticated purpose.

Barley trials could pave way for ‘all-Oregon’ beer (East Oregonian)

New research from Oregon State University could help farmers fill that demand, giving them the tools and data to grow barley that meets quality guidelines for brewers and tap into the craft beer industry.

Auschwitz “Mengele’s twins’ survivor speaks during OSU’s observance of Holocaust (Register-Guard)

If you want to hear a first-hand account from a Nazi death camp and meet a Holocaust survivor in person, your last chance may be at Oregon State University in early May.

A simple way to track your everyday exposure to chemicals (Chemical & Engineering News)

For one week, 92 preschool-aged children in Oregon sported colorful silicone wristbands provided by researchers from Oregon State University. The children’s parents then returned the bands, which the researchers analyzed to determine whether the youngsters had been exposed to flame retardants. The scientists were surprised to find that the kids were exposed to many polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), chemicals that are no longer produced in the U.S., as well as to organophosphate flame retardants, which are widely used as substitutes for PBDEs.

 The ups and downs of city-OSU relations (Gazette-Times)

It’s been a head-spinning couple of weeks for relations between the city of Corvallis and Oregon State University. Deals signed, dazed confusion in the Planning Commission, an infusion of OSU cash to assist with livability issues and, of course, another land-use decision that involves parking.

Council to discuss OSU project, sidewalk ramp (Gazette-Times)

Councilors are scheduled to: Act on a request from Oregon State University to build a new agricultural maintenance building on Campus Way west of 35th Street. The issue was discussed at the March 7 council meeting, but councilors and the university were at odds over parking concerns.

Oregon State Extension hires Utah State professor as associate director (Capital Press)

A Utah State associate professor with expertise in textiles and apparel design has been named associate director of Oregon State University Extension Service. Lindsey Shirley will begin work at OSU on June 1. She’ll also serve as associate provost.

Democracy in science (Register-Guard Editorial)

Other Oregon studies include a Portland State University project examining non-native marine species and a project at Oregon State University looking at the impact of an invasive insect species on ash forests. Another OSU project is seeking funding for a study of how ocean conditions affect rockfish.

Use coffee grounds in the garden (Farm and Dairy)

Oregon State University Extension recommends layering coffee grounds with leaves (dry material) and grass clippings (green material). Layer ⅓ leaves, ⅓ fresh grass clippings and ⅓ coffee grounds.

Save a plant: Pull weeds when they sprout, say OSU garden experts (Oregonian)

Unsightly and seemingly uncontrollable, weeds have a way of taking over the garden in the time it takes to put the hoe away. Keeping weeds under control takes time and patience, but the effort is worth it, said Chip Bubl, horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension Service. Plants – especially vegetables – have a hard time thriving in the company of unwelcome neighbors that compete for water, light and nutrients. Some also harbor pests or diseases.

Corvallis Half Marathon (Gazette-Times)

The fastest runners did the race, which starts and ends on campus at Oregon State University, in less than an hour and a half. The slowest took more than fours hours. Craig Leon, of Eugene, was the men’s winner of the race, repeating on his 2012 win in the race, with a time of 1:08:25.
