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.

 Old growth buffers global warming (Gazette-Times)

Old-growth forests in the Pacific Northwest do a much better job of mitigating the effects of climate change than less complex forests, even mature tree plantations with full canopy cover, a new study from Oregon State University and U.S. Forest Service scientists concludes. (see also Science 2.0Headlines & Global News)

Engineered timber could be a boon to the Oregon wood products industry (Register-Guard)

UO building design instructors have joined OSU forest product researchers to test wood products, including cross-laminated timber, to see how they perform in buildings. The panels are tested to see how they hold up in fires and earthquakes, as well as how they absorb sound.

Study of deep turbulence reveals ocean currents insights (Environmental Monitor)

One study published in Geophysical Research Letters and authored by researchers at Stanford University and Oregon State University details one effort that has shed a little more light on one ocean current, the meridional overturning circulation, a global conveyor belt of water that carries cool waters that sink in the polar regions toward the tropical regions where they mix with warmer waters and rise to the surface.

How dwindling fish stocks got a reprieve (New York Times)

What brought this change? According to Jane Lubchenco, the former head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (N.O.A.A.), the first piece of the puzzle was a new law “with teeth and timetables.”

Few follow healthy habits (Columbus Dispatch)

The results were ‘‘shocking,’’ said Ellen Smit, an associate professor at Oregon State University College of Public Health and Human Sciences and the senior author of the report. ‘‘I think it’s a wake-up call.’’

Blossoms, bees and bubbles highlight annual Hoo Haa (Gazette-Times)

The Hoo Haa, which is now in its 13th year — or 14th, no one is certain — is an Organic Growers Club communal gardening celebration aimed at getting people back to their agricultural roots by planting 10,000 onions at the club’s 2-acre farm east of Corvallis. While the music, fun and games kept many entertained throughout the evening, it was the act of getting down and dirty that inspired dozens of club members and volunteers, who spent nearly all of their time at this year’s Hoo Haa in the garden.

Norovirus outbreak at OSU dorm declared over (KGW)

A norovirus outbreak that sickened dozens of residents in a dorm at Oregon State University has been declared over.

Financial collapse of big donor to University of Oregon highlights risks of relying on private sector connections (Register-Guard)

Heat, rain make for wild weather week (Democrat-Herald)

Downpours Thursday night resulted in a new record of 1.04 inches of rain for the day, said Kathie Dello, deputy director of the Oregon Climate Service at Oregon State University.

Kids blossom and learn in gardens (Oregonian)

“One of the keys to getting kids interested in gardening is to get them engaged,” said Joy Jones, Oregon State University Extension Service master gardener coordinator in Tillamook County. “Let them explore what catches their attention, especially small children.”

Former NCAA wrestling champion Roger Weigel dies (Oregonian)

Former Oregon State national champion Roger Weigel of Oregon City died Thursday in Portland, the university announced Friday.

Corvallis’ Team Bernie (Gazette-Times)

“It is unusual for volunteers who aren’t formally connected to a campaign to open their own office, but it isn’t unprecedented,” said Bill Lunch, a professor emeritus of political science at Oregon State University. Lunch pointed at the primary campaign of Democrat Eugene McCarthy in 1968 as an example of another campaign with similar grass-roots organization.

Vitamin E intake vital during the first 1000 days of life (Doctor Tipster)
