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 everybody’s suddenly talking about gut bacteria (Forbes)

And new research suggests that an off-kilter gut’s impact reverberates beyond weight. Animal studies have shown that by manipulating the microbiome, researchers also altered immune, metabolic and behavioral states, says Thomas Sharpton, an assistant professor of microbiology and statistics in the Oregon State University Colleges of Science and Agricultural Sciences.

Crippled Atlantic currents triggered ice age climate change (Science)

“It is very convincing evidence,” adds Andreas Schmittner, a climate scientist at Oregon State University, Corvallis. “We did not know that the circulation changed during these shorter intervals.”

OSU names marine science leader from southern California to head college (LIFE@OSU)

A marine science leader from southern California, who serves as vice chair of the board of trustees for the national Consortium for Ocean Leadership in Washington, D.C., and president of the board of directors of the Southern California Marine Institute, has been named dean of the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University.

Scientist accidentally discovers the world’s newest shade of blue and it’s gorgeous (Cosmopolitan)

“Serendipitously,” in 2009, Oregon State University chemist Mas Subramanian created the gorgeous blue pigment you see above, the university reports. Now, the “near-perfect” pigment has been perfected and will be sold as commercial coatings and plastics, and later this year, as paint for household use. (see also Today, Teen Vogue, IFLScience)

Marine bacteria share carbon assimilation duties (The Scientist)

Marine systems fix about 50 gigatons of carbon each year, of which about half is processed by heterotrophic microbial communities. But relatively little is known about the role of individual taxa in the assimilation and metabolism of carbon compounds. So Samuel Bryson, a graduate student in Ryan Mueller’s lab at Oregon State University, set out to test a method that could improve taxon-specific measurements of carbon uptake and usage.

Corvallis campus water tested for lead, copper (LIFE@OSU)

Oregon State University has tested water from nearly 40 Corvallis campus buildings for lead and copper levels following news that lead had been found in some Portland-area schools.

Peavey Arboretum closes two trails following fire (Democrat-Herald)

Officials at Oregon State University have closed the northern half of the McDonald Forest following a fire Saturday on the Powder House Trail west of Peavy Arboretum. Stephen Fitzgerald, director of research forests at OSU, said the 3.1 acre fire that started around 7 p.m. Saturday night was likely not caused by lightning or any other natural means.

Local breweries become attractive to big investors? (Asheville Citizen-Times)

“They’ve clearly identified a strategy of acquiring independent breweries, because their own attempts at trying to enter the craft market themselves have failed,” said Patrick Emerson, a professor of economics at Oregon State University who writes a blog called Beeronomics. “I think what they’ve realized is craft beer is a lot about being a local product, a regional product, having a back story — it’s more of an artisanal product than an industrial product, and they just can’t enter into that market nationally.”

The strawberry defined Oregon, but is it going away? (Willamette Week)

“That byproduct becomes the competition for Oregon,” says Bernadine Strik, a berry expert at Oregon State University. “What makes it difficult is that California’s volume of processed fruit is over half a billion pounds. That’s an incredible volume of fruit—more than 40 times what Oregon produces.”

New technology could improve the use of small-scale hydropower in developing nations (Science Blog)

Engineers at Oregon State University have created a new computer modeling package that people anywhere in the world could use to assess the potential of a stream for small-scale, “run of river” hydropower, an option to produce electricity that’s of special importance in the developing world. (see also Water Power MagazineTech Xplore)

Roller-coasting birds soar for months and may snooze while aloft (New Scientist)

But climate change will shift atmospheric currents in the tropics, which could endanger the frigatebird’s migratory strategy, says Rob Suryan of Oregon State University. “That’s a concern for a wide variety of seabirds.”

OSU Rocketry Club taking off after intercollegiate engineering victory (Democrat-Herald)

Two weeks ago, the OSU American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics club took home the top prize in the 10th annual ESRA Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition in Green River, Utah – the biggest college rocket competition in the world. In 2014, they beat out 40-plus teams to win first place in the basic category at the IREC. Nancy Squires, OSU AIAA senior instructor, said the club’s recent success is a major feat for a club that just three years ago didn’t exist.

Mid-valley commuting often a tale mixed with housing (Gazette-Times)

“I had heard for a decade that more than 10,000 commuted to Corvallis daily,” said Mike Beilstein, councilor for Ward 5 north of the Oregon State University campus and chairman of the city’s housing task force. “When we saw real numbers I was surprised that it was actually 18,000. The city started the housing actions based on the idea that (this) was a unique problem for Corvallis.

Religious liberty is not just for Christians (Huffington Post)

A piece by OSU’s Susan Shaw.

Portland architects designing a new science center at OSU (Portland Business Journal)

A Portland architecture firm with some high-profile projects to its name, including the renovation of the downtown Hotel deLuxe and several projects on the Nike headquarters campus, has now conjured up the design for a new science center on the Oregon State University-Cascades campus in Bend.

BLM, OSU to study wild horse spaying methods in Hines (KTVZ)

The Bureau of Land Management Burns District released its decision Monday to initiate research, in cooperation with Oregon State University, to develop and evaluate safe and humane methods to spay wild horse mares as a method for managing the growth of wild horse herds on public lands. (see also Bend Bulletin)

Earthquake simulation in Longview helps scientists understand ‘The Big One’ (The Daily News)

Researchers from University of Texas at Austin and Oregon State University are studying how the soil will respond to a massive earthquake such as the one expected along the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The undersea fault zone stretches from Northern Vancouver Island to Cape Mendocino, Calif., and has a long history of producing massive earthquakes every several hundred years or so. The last was a 9.0 quake in January 1700.

Oregon juniper loan program off to slow start, but backers remain hopeful (Capital Press)

An Oregon State University study showed that cutting juniper quickly restores watersheds and improves streamflows, which in turn improves grazing conditions for cattle and habitat for species such as Greater sage grouse. Politicians, agency experts and environmentalists believe a vibrant juniper logging and milling industry could revitalize the economy in parts of rural Oregon, as well.

When Hollywood does AI, it’s fun but far-fetched (CNET)

“Creating AI will require vast financial and engineering resources. Think Google, and not two guys in a garage.”
— Thomas Dietterich, professor of computer science, Oregon State University

Oregon slaughterhouses face challenges (Capital Press)

As the owners of such companies retire or die, finding replacements is difficult — both because their skills are rare and because fewer people are willing to do such work, said Lauren Gwin, an Oregon State University professor and director of the Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network.

The rodeo and the birth of Benny the Beaver (Newberg Graphic)

OSU first referred to itself as the “Beavers” in 1910. However, it was not until Newberg’s own Ken Austin, co-founder of A-dec Inc., appeared in a homemade beaver costume at what was then known as Oregon State College in 1952 that the school finally had a student mascot named “Benny Beaver.”

Another run at dog agility (Gazette-Times)

Lyons said Tenaya, who is now 13, will have to retire from agility events eventually, but neither were ready for that. “It wasn’t an option she or I were willing to choose,” said Lyons, a wildlife biologist at Oregon State University.

Enduring Vigil (Terra)

At 8:46 p.m. on a Saturday night last December, Tully Rohrer received an SOS from a machine. It came as text messages on his cell phone and indicated that one of the ocean-monitoring buoys he had helped to deploy off the Oregon and Washington coast a few months earlier had come loose from its mooring.

NW ag, forestry, fisheries pack big punch (Capital Press)

The study, commissioned by Northwest Farm Credit Services and performed by extension economists at Oregon State University and the University of Idaho, found agriculture, forestry and fisheries account for 10.6 percent of all jobs in the five-state region and 12.2 percent of all sales in 2015.

Oregon researchers take on potato nematodes (Fresh Plaza)

Potato breeders at Oregon State University are working to identify the gene that makes certain potatoes resistant to nematodes, which could then be used to create new varieties. Columbia root-knot nematodes might be too small to see with the naked eye, but they can cause noticeable damage to potatoes if left unchecked and they are lurking in farms across the Columbia Basin.

More than edibles, artichokes can be ornamentals (Daily Journal)

“To grow artichokes from seed, start them indoors in late February or March under grow lights for about eight weeks, and then plant them outside after the last frost,” said Jim Myers, a plant breeder and researcher at Oregon State University. “In May or June, it’s best to purchase starts from your local nursery or mail-order catalog.”

Ancient insects camouflaged themselves in dirt and dead bugs (Mother Nature Network)

“These ancient fossils are quite remarkable,” George Poinar, an entomologist at Oregon State University, who was not part of this study, told the Christian Science Monitor.

Grass seed farmers hopeful that June weather didn’t undermine quality (Register-Guard)

“It’s very early in the season, but it doesn’t appear the rain caused many problems,” said Oregon State University seed specialist Clare Sullivan. “There were patches of hail that appear to have affected some fields. Rain wise, I haven’t heard anyone complaining about that.”

Final night for Bombs Away cafe owners (Gazette-Times)

Ironically, both Palmers work at Oregon State University as professors of nuclear science and engineering. Both are Oregon natives and both received one of their degrees from OSU. And the corporate entity they created for the Bombs Away is called Manhattan Project Inc. (that also was the name of the government-led effort in the U.S. to develop the bomb).

It’s blackberry season (Oregonian)

The dark purple blackberry is for Oregon, by Oregon. Created at Oregon State University, it bears the name of its birthplace — Marion County — and is so delicate, the harvest lasts only about three weeks toward the end of June. That makes it hard for anyone outside of the Pacific Northwest to get their hands on the sweet fruit.

8 fragrant flowers to delight your senses in the summertime (Statesman Journal)

Some flowers fragrant at night only open their blossoms after the sun starts to go down. Many of these evolved to be white in order to attract night-flying moths that feed on their nectar, explained Heather Stoven, a horticulturist with Oregon State University’s Extension Service. Others — no matter the color — release or increase their scent after hours seemingly just for human enjoyment.

Searching for genes to make potatoes resistant to nematodes (Potato Pro)

Potato breeders at Oregon State University are working to identify the gene that makes certain potatoes resistant to nematodes, which could then be used to create new varieties. Columbia root-knot nematodes might be too small to see with the naked eye, but they can cause noticeable damage to potatoes if left unchecked and they are lurking in farms across the Columbia Basin.

Water in the cool morning, say OSU experts (Oregonian)

Here are tips from gardening experts at Oregon State University Extension Service as well as reminders of key jobs you should tackle in July.

Pairing PGRs in pears helps control vigor (Growing Produce)

Vigor – it’s something pear growers constantly struggle with. Bending and tying branches, planting higher-density orchards, altering canopy architecture – all these things can help growers calm the vigor, but as Todd Einhorn, Associate Professor of Horticulture at Oregon State University says, these horticultural practices are only part of the remedy.

Traffic and Maintenance

29th Street: Construction on NW 29th Street will mean periodic street closures between Tyler and Grant Avenues starting on June 20. The project, which will replace aging sanitary sewer lines and mains, is already underway, but closures will be required from about 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily as the project proceeds this month. Up to two blocks will be closed at any given time for roughly three weeks per section as the project move north on 29th Street. Corvallis Transit System (CTS) will alter bus routes around the construction site.

Washington Way: The city will be reconstructing the railroad crossing at 35th Street and Washington Way this summer.  During the reconstruction of the railroad at-grade crossing, road and rail work are to take place, which will result in sidewalk and roadway closures of 35th Street July 25- Aug. 26. Additional information on closure details and duration will be shared as information is received from the city.  For questions or additional information, contact Nathan Patterson.

UPDATED! Hwy 20 Eddyville project update: Travelers between Newport and Corvallis should expect some brief delays to let trucks on and off of the highway at both ends of the project on U.S. 20. Ten-hour nighttime complete closures are planned to occur from Sunday, July 17 through the end of October, five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday. These are necessary because the drilling, blasting, and earthwork operations are above and alongside the highway and the contractor needs enough room and time to do this safely. These are currently scheduled to occur from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., but that time may be adjusted, depending on construction safety needs. The current plan is for the road to be completely open on Friday and Saturday nights.
