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.

Cranes, curlews and cows — the delicate debate over Oregon’s federal lands (PBS News Hour)

DUSTIN JOHNSON, Oregon State University Extension Service: We’re really only two years really into the sampling which is being done. We’re just now beginning to understand some of these changes that we’re seeing when we do certain things.

Increasing native seed supply for restoration efforts in the western United States (International Network for Seed-Based Restoration)

One effective method for increasing seed availability is through the establishment of agronomic-style seed propagation and increase programs that produce native plant seed for restoration. Oregon State University’s Malheur Experimental Station (OSU MES) in Onatrio, Oregon is leading this effort.

OSU to use athletes in program aimed at reducing high-risk drinking (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University plans to enlist the assistance of student-athletes in a new campaign to address high-risk drinking by students. Called OSU Choices, the three-year project will use a $30,000 grant from the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The goal is to reduce the number of students who engage in high-risk drinking, defined as five or more alcoholic drinks at one sitting.

Pac-12 announces official support for e-Sports, the first conference to do so (Oregonian)

Oregon State University, for example, has an active gaming club that occasionally hosts a Civil War LAN. At the University of Oregon, a “League of Legends” team also meets from time to time and a Pokémon league has seen an ebb and flow of participation since 2014.

Changes at Oregon State Extension center (Good Fruit Growers)

Dr. Peter Shearer has resigned as entomologist at Oregon State University’s Mid-Columbia Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Hood River, Oregon.

Oregon State head coach Larry Liebowitz announces retirement (Swim Swam)

We reported earlier today of news that Oregon State’s women’s swim program was looking for a new head coach, but the status of head coach Larry Liebowitz was unclear until now. It was recently announced that he will retire after 13 years of work for OSU.

SWD – How to stop a proliferate press (Good Fruit Growers)

Since 2008, USDA has funded $47.7 million in competitive research grants and Extension programming to combat spotted wing drosophila, many through the Specialty Crop Research Initiative (SCRI), under USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). That effort includes a five-year, $5.4 million project at Oregon State University headed by Dr. Vaughn Walton, which kick-started the efforts in 2010.

Do insect infestations make fire less severe? (Environmental Research Web)

“In western North America, widespread insect outbreaks and wildfires have sparked concerns that insects increase wildfire activity, but recent studies suggest that insects have little influence on fire likelihood and severity,” Garrett Meigs of the University of Vermont and Oregon State University told environmentalresearchweb. “In contrast, we found that insects generally reduce wildfire severity over a 25 year period across a large region.”

Riding through a healthier forest (Bend Bulletin)

After receiving so many posts from angry mountain bikers on their Bendtrails.org website, Robert Rekward and Joe Myers asked a local expert to weigh in. Bend’s Nicole Strong, an assistant professor at Oregon State University’s Forestry and Natural Resources Extension, is also an avid mountain biker. She notes that the tree removal and thinning project will actually accelerate a more sustainable forest by growing healthy old trees, improving wildlife habitat and reducing the risk of high-severity wildfire.

Spirited brewery on the rise (Register-Guard)

From the start, to make the monastery’s first beer, Grassel tested what developed into Black Habit, an Americanized Belgian-style beer, at Oregon State University. When the recipe was ready, Grassel relied on Seven Brides Brewing in Silverton to help him produce large batches of it for special events, such as the annual Mount Angel Oktoberfest.

Starfish baby boom surprises biologists (National Geographic)

Bruce Menge, an Oregon State University marine ecologist who has studied sea stars along the coast for the past 30 years, found an unprecedented surge of babies, mostly ochre sea stars, at nine study sites in Oregon. In most of the areas, that meant around 300 times as many babies as in previous years.

Minimize risk with integrated pest management (Herald & News)

Blood thirsty as that may sound, most gardeners don’t appreciate planting a garden only to have it turn into a mottled, notched or spotted mess. Sure, a certain amount of nibbling is to be expected and tolerated by gardeners who use integrated pest management, said Heather Stoven, a horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension Service. But dead plants are not.
