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 Hurricane Matthew is unlikely to cloud the national economy (Wall Street Journal)

A 2015 study by Oregon State University’s Jianhong Mu and Yong Chen finds that large natural disasters have significant long-run impact, diminishing real per capita income between $112 and $267. “We probably need to reform the existing disaster relief programs in order to mitigate the long-run impacts,” the authors said.

The Big Quake (Al Jazeera)

Impact studies are under way at Oregon State University, where civil engineer Daniel Cox utilises a wave laboratory to gauge the effect of different sized tsunamis.

Indigenous People’s Day proclamation to be signed (Daily Barometer)

History is being made at Oregon State University with the Indigenous Peoples’ Day proclamation, striving to correct the injustice of ignorance celebrated in American culture by replacing the traditional Christopher Columbus Day. The proclamation will be on Monday, Oct. 10 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Native American Longhouse.

Poll: Most Oregonians oppose hunting wolves, favor nonlethal conflict prevention (ENewsPF)

“It’s very encouraging — and far from surprising — that the survey indicates a broad majority of Oregonians believe we can, and should, find ways to coexist with wolves,” said Dr. Michael Paul Nelson, a professor at Oregon State University whose research focuses on ecosystems and society. “And it should be instructive to policymakers that these results demonstrate that people across the state — even in rural areas most affected by wolves — want our public policies on wolves to reflect the facts, not unsubstantiated rhetoric and opinions.”

Alexandria Brasili is an aquaculture teacher with a goal (Portland Press Herald)

Brasili just finished a master’s in science education, online through Oregon State University. “I got it because in my undergraduate career I hadn’t taken any education courses, and I felt like my academic background was lacking.” She’d always planned on being a scientist, probably on the marine side. “I always loved the ocean.” But as she went deeper into research, she realized something.

Conifer needles will drop: That’s Ok (Oregonian)

Such botanical behavior is natural, said Paul Ries, urban forestry specialist for the Oregon State University Extension Service. Evergreen conifers shed needles just as deciduous trees lose leaves; it just happens over a longer period of time.

Historian will present stories of African-American railroad porters (LIFE@OSU)

Filmmaker and historian Michael “Chappie” Grice will share the stories of Oregon’s African American railroad porters on Oct. 12 at Oregon State University’s Valley Library.

OSU researchers are scooping up whale what? (Awesome Ocean)

For the past two summers, the Oregon State University team has been pooper scooping in the Pacific Ocean. Believe it or not, a whale’s #2 can be as long as 40 feet and weigh up to 30 tons. We sure hope they feel better after that… Just saying. (see also Oregon Coast Beach Connection)

125 years of sound (Gazette-Times)

Before he guest conducted the Oregon State University Wind Ensemble in a variation of Robert Schumann’s “Happy Farmer,” the ensemble’s former director Dave Becker talked about how he chose the piece. It connected to the university’s agricultural history — and his parents’ history of meeting while they were university students and his dad was studying agriculture.

Pendleton poses challenge for growing grapes (Statesman Journal)

Clive Kaiser, extension horticulturist with Oregon State University in Milton-Freewater, said he can only think of two vineyards attempted in Pendleton over the last decade, including Duff’s. The other was located near Blue Mountain Community College, and ran into issues with a type of weed killer that drifted over from a neighboring wheat field.

The reception will be held on Monday, Oct. 10, from 5 – 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union Lounge.

Corvallis Science Pub: From rhetoric about putting “America First” to arguments about the founding of NATO, global concerns are playing a prominent role in this year’s presidential elections. At the Corvallis Science Pub on Oct. 10, Christopher McKnight Nichols will put these issues into a historical context. The concept of a grand strategy — an ambitious organizing principle for the exercise of global power — provides one way to understand how such issues affect our political discourse, says Nichols, an OSU historian and member of the Council on Foreign Relations. The Science Pub is free and open to the public. It begins at 6 p.m. at the Old World Deli.

 Kristin Berger & Scot Siegel: Poets will read from their new poetry books Oct. 10, 7 p.m., Grass Roots Books & Music. Kristin Berger’s “How Light Reaches Us” is a finely woven, image-rich exploration of self and landscape that gets to the very core of what poetry is about: language borrowed from the land, yet language of a voice so true that there could be none other.  In “Constellation of Extinct Stars,” Scot Siegel’s poems have an ambidextrous quality, ready to pivot deftly from history to imagined history, from biography to prophecy Sponsored by the Spring Creek Project.

NEW! Faculty Senate President-Elect Vacancy: The 2016 Faculty Senate President-Elect has resigned after accepting appointment as an associate vice provost. The Faculty Senate Bylaws indicate that those in Executive Levels 1, 2 and 3 (dean and above) are represented by the Faculty Senate, but are not eligible to represent faculty. Because the individual in the 2016 position becomes the Faculty Senate President in January 2017, there will be an early Fall election for this position and the individual elected will begin immediately after the results are determined. The President-Elect candidate slate will be presented for approval during the Oct. 13 Faculty Senate meeting, and nominations will be accepted from the floor of those individuals who have previous experience as a Faculty Senator (the Faculty Senate Office can assist in determining eligibility). Faculty may nominate themselves or others through Oct. 12 by contacting Vickie Nunnemaker at vickie.nunnemaker@oregonstate.edu. Nominators must obtain, in advance, the nominee’s willingness to serve if elected. Candidates should be aware that, given the short President-Elect term, several of the past presidents have offered to assume some of the committee responsibilities during 2017.
