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.

Some things built to last. Others aren’t. Why? (Portland Tribune)

Not here, says Christopher Higgins, a professor of structural engineering at Oregon State University. When it comes to durability, Higgins says, we have met the enemy and he is us. “We aren’t good decision makers when it comes to long-term costs and risks,” Higgins says. “We buy on first costs.”

OSU’s new online tool helps Oregonians assess quake risks (KTVZ)

The Cascadia Lifelines Program, operated by Oregon State University and its lifeline infrastructure partners, has created a new online tool for Oregonians to use to better identify the risks they face from a major earthquake anticipated on the Cascadia subduction zone. (see also KGW, KXTV)

Committee, firm chosen to begin new search for new OSU provost and executive vice president (LIFE@OSU)

A committee has been selected to undertake a national search for the new provost and executive vice president at Oregon State University. Sabah Randhawa, the current provost, will leave OSU this summer to assume the presidency of Western Washington University in August. Ron Adams, interim vice president of administration, has been appointed as the interim provost and executive vice president until the position is filled on a permanent basis.

Urchin sunscreen and other ways animals beat the burn (Smithsonian)

“Genes responsible for the production of gadusol are present in most fish, amphibians, reptiles and birds,” says study coauthor Taifo Mahmud, of Oregon State University. “However, mammals, including humans, do not have the genes or lost the genes during evolution.”

Saving reefs one polyp at a time (The Scientist)

“There are all these fascinating, basic biology questions that we don’t know the answer to,” says Virginia Weis, a marine physiologist at Oregon State University. How do corals respond mechanistically to bacterial infections, for example? What exactly happens during coral bleaching? “They’re hard questions to study, because we haven’t had the cell biology and imaging capabilities.”

Corvallis now bluer than Eugene (KLCC)

But in the nineties, with the Oregon Citizens’ Alliance pushing anti-gay rights measures, Lunch says that started to change.  Then, Lunch adds, people at science-oriented Oregon State University rebelled against what they saw as an anti-science Republican party. Now 55-percent of Corvallis voters are registered Democrats with just 19% of them Republicans, and the same amount of non-affiliated.

Sheffield University students go nuclear with US internships (The Engineer)

Four engineering students from the University of Sheffield are travelling to the US to take up internships at NuScale Power’s nuclear test facilities. Based in Corvallis, Oregon, the undergrads will learn about NuScale’s experimental work on small modular reactors (SMR), seen by some as a cheaper and more flexible alternative to mammoth nuclear developments such as Hinkley Point. The fully-funded internships will run from June to September, and are being run in conjunction with Oregon State University (OSU).

Bend Science Station planning move to OSU-Cascades (Bend Bulletin)

The Bend Science Station has taken the first steps toward relocating to the OSU-Cascades campus, with an application to build a new building at the university site in southwest Bend.

A nudge toward preparedness (Daily Astorian)

Coming full circle, Patrick Corcoran, coastal natural hazards specialist with Oregon State University, pointed out how difficult it is to physically prepare for Cascadia until one has psychologically prepared for it. Humans, he said, are not hardwired to brace for events of such low frequency and high magnitude.

Oregon State University this fall plans to open a separate dorm for students recovering from drug and alcohol addiction (Register-Guard)

Oregon State University will open an on-campus dorm this fall specifically designed for students recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. The university said it believes the new housing and support center is the first of its kind in Oregon, at either a private or public institution. (see also KGW, Bend Bulletin, Northwest Cable News)

Fight bugs in the garden (Statesman Journal)

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.
