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.

How to do a better job of searching for diversity (Chronicle of Higher Education)

“There is a small pool, but we are building a community that will attract people to be a part of it,” says Scott A. Ashford, dean of the College of Engineering at Oregon State University. “And if we develop that, then the small pool doesn’t concern me, because we’ll be the place people want to be.” (subscription only: See also this list: http://bit.ly/2cVKt0r)

Why the EPA doesn’t regulate ocean acidification (The Atlantic)

“Carbon doesn’t care where it came from. Any carbon that comes from runoff, versus carbon that comes from someone burning oil 50 years ago—it will still acidify the water in the same way,” says Francis Chan, a professor of biology at Oregon State University. “The more carbon molecules you can take out of the game, the better you’re likely to be.”

OSU-Cascades celebrates Tykeson Hall opening (KBND)

Oregon State University celebrates the grand opening of Tykeson Hall in Bend, on Tuesday. OSU President Ed Ray tells KBND News the university’s move away from the Central Oregon Community College campus is the beginning of a new era for the region. “This has been a 30-year effort. There are people who have just made incredible sacrifices and efforts to be able to provide four-year and advanced higher education opportunities there. And, here’s the physical evidence. We’re past the talking stage; it’s happening.” (see also OregonianKTVZLIFE@OSU, Register-Guard)

This Harvard professor explains why we were born to resist working out (Washington Post)

Bradley Cardinal, a professor at Oregon State University with an expertise in psychosocial and sociocultural aspects of health and physical activity, isn’t entirely convinced that humans’ reluctance to move is all biological, although he said he is intrigued by Lieberman’s theory. (see also The National Post)

Walking the tenure tightrope (Chemical & Engineering News)

Research was also the clear priority in tenure for May Nyman, who joined Oregon State University in 2012 after 14 years at Sandia National Laboratories. “I always want to publish quality papers, get funding, and do exciting work no matter where I am. I wasn’t really considering the tenure process,” she says.

USDA: Oregon only state with recent rise in hunger (KTVZ)

A study by Oregon State University found renters are six times more likely to be food insecure than homeowners, and African-American families in Oregon are more likely to be renters. According to Newell-Ching, that is part of the reason 44 percent of those families struggled at some point in 2015 to afford food.

The Central Oregon prize (Register-Guard)

Fifteen years later, the Board of Higher Education no longer exists and the state’s university system no longer has a chancellor — but OSU has opened its Cascades Campus, expects an enrollment of 1,100 there this fall and forecasts a student body of 3,000 to 5,000 within a decade.

Strategies to maintain focus while writing your dissertation (Inside Higher Ed)

With the majority of my data collection completed, I elected to take a dissertation writing course in the OSU writing program with Dr. Vicki Tolar Burton. Initially, I thought this would be a good strategy for setting aside chunks of time to devote to writing my dissertation. The course did provide a protected block of time to write, but it did even more for me, my writing, and my productivity: it taught me strategies to maintain focus.

First woman to earn OSU civil engineering degree dies at 88 (Oregonian)

Jean Richardson, the first woman to earn a civil engineering degree from Oregon State University and a designer of an important Portland water treatment plant, died in April, her family reported in obituaries published this weekend.

That outcome came as a surprise to the researchers from the University of Washington, Seattle’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center and Oregon State University. In a study published this week by the journal PeerJ, they reported that bivalves and gastropods – clams and snails – were particularly widespread.

Why not a college degree in sports? (New York Times Opinion)

Attending classes and playing sports have not always been considered separate activities. Universities have a long history of awarding college credit for physical education. In the 1920s, almost all universities required P.E. classes toward degrees; by 2013, less than 40 percent did. (link cites OSU study)

Is “kill Islam” free speech? (Gazette-Times)

If someone writes “Islam kills, kill Islam” on an Oregon State University sidewalk, what should be done? Is such a statement protected speech? How should the university react?

7 ways people quit their jobs (Harvard Business Review)

A piece by Anthony C. Klotz,  assistant professor of management at Oregon State University’s College of Business.

The 16 most innovative people in higher education (Washington Monthly)

As an American Council on Education fellow at Arizona State University in 2013–14, Bridget Burns traveled to more than fifty campuses around the country asking two questions: How are you innovating to improve student success? And what are nearby schools doing? “No one ever answered that second question with any level of specificity,” OSU alum Burns says.

Latest sepsis research for health care providers (Healio)

Oregon State University engineers have developed a small processor — approximately the size of a coffee mug — that uses microchannel technology to remove circulating bacteria and endotoxins from blood. The approach may offer an alternative to antibiotics, which are not always effective against sepsis.

Will our future high rises be made of wood? (OPB)

Last week, Lever received design approval for an 11-story high-rise in the Pearl district called Framework. The firm is in the final stages of proving CLT’s ability to withstand fire and support a building of such size with help from a $1.5 million Department of Agriculture grant and researchers at the University of Oregon, Portland State University and Oregon State University.

Farewell to Balz Frei (Paperblog)

A starchy sixth sense could explain why humans love carbs (Smithsonian)

Researchers previously believed that the flavors associated with these foods came from the sweet-sensing parts of our tongues, as complex carbohydrates are basically long chains of sugar molecules that start to break down as soon as they hit our saliva, Hamzelou writes. But for Juyun Lim, a food scientist at Oregon State University, this didn’t track.

Disabled dog meets with vet, gets surgery date (Statesman Journal)

Tigger was the center of attention among humans Friday at Oregon State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. But he didn’t seem to notice. The 55-pound bull-terrier mix just wanted to make sure he got in his kisses and belly rubs, and that none of the other dogs got by him without at least one sniff and a thump or two or three of his tail.

Terrace at Reser Stadium gives OSU fans a taste of home (Gazette-Times)

Ways developed to control unintentional spread of engineered tree species (Mirage)

In their work published this week in Nature Biotechnology, lead author Amy Klocko, postdoctoral researcher in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University (OSU), and her colleagues used a technique known as RNA interference to suppress a gene, called LEAFY, that is known to play a central role in the development of flowers in poplars and many other plants.

Native plants are deer deterrents (Oregonian)

“Deer are looking for the highest quality food and our yards often offer the best smorgasbord,” said Dana Sanchez, a wildlife specialist for Oregon State University Extension Service. “When taking loving care of our plants – watering well and and fertilizing – we’re producing a really superior plant compared to what’s in the natural environment. They are more tender and have more nutrition and water content.”
