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.

Q&A: Could seismic activity elsewhere prompt a Northwest quake? (OPB)

“Well, not very likely. It’s not impossible; we can never rule things out completely, but globally those earthquakes would be considered small relative to the size of a megaearthquake that subduction zones can produce. And so earthquakes of that size acting over such big distances are pretty unlikely to influence Cascadia.” ~ OSU’s Chris Goldfinger.

Is America ready for a tsunami? Scientists reveal plans to deal with killer waves across the Pacific Northwest (Daily Mail)

‘Cascadia can make an earthquake almost 30 times more energetic than the San Andreas to start with,’ Chris Goldfinger, a professor of geophysics at Oregon State University told CNN. ‘Then it generates a tsunami at the same time, which the side-by-side motion of the San Andreas can’t do’.

Carbon stored in Pacific Northwest forests reflects timber harvest history (Wood Business)

The amount of carbon stored in tree trunks, branches, leaves and other biomass — what scientists call “aboveground live carbon” — is determined more by timber harvesting than by any other environmental factor in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, according to a report published by researchers at Oregon State University.

Could early retirement kill you? (AOL News)

So it turns out that although early retirement may be the dream for thousands of us, it could actually be bad for your health. Oregon State University studied participants for 18 years, and found that among healthy retirees ‘a one-year older retirement age had an 11% lower risk of all-cause mortality’.

Earth’s weird and wonderful animal models (Phys Org)

An artificial spider web, engineered by Ross Hatton of Oregon State University. With NSF funding, Hatton has teamed up with a spider biologist to probe the physics of spider webs.

Oregon school funding still a challenge, 25 years after Measure 5 (KLCC)

Retired Oregon State University political science professor Bill Lunch is one of Oregon’s leading scholars on Measure 5. Lunch spent countless hours in Salem tracking the property tax debate. Lunch said two things changed in 1990 that helped the anti-tax crusade: the proponents softened their anti-government rhetoric, and strong economic growth in the Portland area was pushing up property values and taxes.

2016’s states with the highest and lowest tax rates (Wallet Hub)

OSU’s Jared A. Moore comments on the potential impact of state and local taxes within the bigger picture.

Distinguished Professor Jim Oldfield passes away at 94 (LIFE@OSU)

James Edmund Oldfield, a former Distinguished Professor at Oregon State University, died April 3, 2016. He was 94.

Hey about those silicone bracelets (Popular Science Australia)

The bracelets are made of silicone, which can trap toxic pollutants that the wearer encounters. Researchers from Oregon State University recently tested the bracelets on 92 preschool children and were surprised by the number of harmful toxins the kids encountered in a week. The researcherspublished a study in the May issue of the journal Environmental Research, as Chemical and Engineering News reports this week.

Exploring Oregon’s ocean at Listening to the Land (North Coast Citizen)

Kirsten Grorud-Colvert is on the faculty of Oregon State University, where she has studied marine systems and ocean organisms from the Florida Keys to the near-shore ocean off Oregon. She uses data from many different marine species and habitats to look at what happens when you protect an area in the ocean and what we can learn from these areas in order to design even better protection.

Bell tower will ring out with new music (LIFE@OSU)

Oregon State University’s campus Bell Tower is now ringing out with a new song selection to replace its current hourly chiming of the hours and Westminster chime. The Bell Tower was built in 2001 following a donation from the wife and family of late alum H. Dean Papé, and expanded in 2015 from nine to 14 bells by a second donation from the Papé family.

Blueberry farmer warns some surfactants may sunburn plants in unseasonably hot weather (Capital Press)

However, a berry crops extension agent at Oregon State University’s North Willamette Research and Extension Center said it’s too early to know if the damage will affect pollination. Associate Professor Wei Qian Yang said the damage was largely to flower petals. In some cases, only one-third to one-half of the petals were damaged, and flowers might be OK.
