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.

‘Why not take the opportunity?’ Thousands will celebrate graduation at colleges across Oregon (Oregonian)

Oregon State University awarded the most degrees, with an estimated 7,102 undergraduates, graduate and doctoral degrees presented collectively at its Corvallis and Bend campuses. (see also Gazette-TimesKEZI, LIFE@OSU)

OSU grads reflect on memorable moments (Gazette-Times)

Members of Oregon State University’s Class of 2016 did plenty of both on Saturday as they prepared to collect their diplomas at the university’s 147th commencement ceremony. The most memorable moment of Ameer Almuaybid’s career as a student at OSU was a nerve-wracking experience. “It was my first day of teaching as a teaching assistant,” said Almuaybid, 29.

Study uses citizens to monitor climate data (Portland Tribune)

A study led by the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute at Oregon State University is deploying tens of thousands of “citizen scientists” to help researchers improve predictions about regional climate. (see also Eurasia Review)

Would you ask for accommodations at work? (Huffington Post)

The Americans with Disabilities Act protects the rights of workers to ask for accommodations at work to help them manage more easily. But research out of Oregon State University has found that older workers are less likely to ask for help, because they worry they’ll be perceived as old instead, and that their disability is a result of their age.

Study: Native Oregon oysters uniquely suited to survive in acidified waters (Oregonian)

Oregon’s only native species of oyster, once deemed “functionally extinct” due to overharvesting, may hold the key to the future of the state’s shellfish industry, researchers from Oregon State University said in a new study. (see also KUOW, Phys.org)

The roar of the deep (Dive Magazine)

You might, think, therefore, that it would be a relatively quiet place, and certainly that is what marine scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) at Oregon State University expected to find. ‘Yet there really is almost constant noise from both natural and man-made sources,’ explains Robert Dziak, a NOAA research oceanographer and chief scientist on a project to drop a titanium-encased hydrophone into the trench, which he describes as akin to ‘sending a deep-space probe to the outer solar system’.

OSU selects noted oceanographer to head Marine Studies Initiative (LIFE@OSU)

Jack Barth, an Oregon State University oceanographer known for his teaching, research, and public engagement related to marine low-oxygen zones, and his leadership in the national Ocean Observatories Initiative, has been named executive director of the Marine Studies Initiative at OSU.

Oregon State’s Steve Strauss on benefits, challenges to genetically engineered trees, forest biology (Genetic Literacy Project)

Dr. Steve Strauss is a Distinguished Professor of Forestry at Oregon State University. He has been at the forefront of forest biology and genetic engineering of trees, contributing greatly to the understanding of fundamental tree biology, as well as the development of techniques and tools to perform genetic engineering in tree species. We discuss the many opportunities in tree breeding, as well as the limitations and other challenges.

From dumpster diver to move-out recycling champ (Gazette-Times)

A reformed dumpster diver has now turned her attention to other means to limit waste around Oregon State University. Christine Dashiell, a Japanese translator who also volunteers in reuse and recycling efforts, was profiled in a June 2014 Gazette-Times story that focused on her retrieval of items from dumpsters.

What’s the best mulch? OSU horticulturist explains pros and cons (Oregonian)

“It really does reduce your work load,” said Linda Brewer, a senior research assistant in Oregon State University’s department of horticulture. “Once applied it cuts down on weeding and watering.”

Soft hay market means unsold bales linger across Northwest (Argus Observer)

Rumors about a poor hay market have been confirmed by local and state agriculture officials who say there are a variety of reasons for the problem. “This is a lot of hay that wants to be sold,” said Bill Buhrig, Oregon State University extension agent.

Interfaith voices: A little learning can tear down walls (Gazette-Times)

As part of my commitment to fostering more peace in the world, I teach a course in world religions at Oregon State University. Studying the major classical religious traditions of the world — Indigenous traditions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Chinese traditions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam — we emphasize the incredible diversity within each tradition, and focus on the highest values each encompasses (even though all of them have shortcomings).

Dig again to correct poor tree planting, don’t add fertilizer (Oregonian)
