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.

The new Intel: How Nvidia went from powering video games to revolutionizing artificial intelligence (Forbes)

Huang also fell in love with computers in high school and ended up studying computer science and chip design at Oregon State University. There he met his future wife, Lori. After graduation, they moved to Silicon Valley, where Huang started his first job designing processing chips at Intel rival AMD.

Oregon public college enrollment diversifies, with Latino and multiracial student population doubling in seven years (Register-Guard)

The analysis also found that the schools’ black student population remains low. Only Oregon State University and Western Oregon University had black student populations above 3 percent. That’s a bit higher, however, than the percentage of black high school seniors last school year.

Rising ‘Tide': Kathleen Dean Moore’s new novel grapples with environmental issues (Gazette-Times)

The literary form is different — Corvallis writer Kathleen Dean Moore has swapped the essay for a new novel, “Piano Tide” — but the story at its heart is familiar. “The novel came to me, I didn’t go after it, it came to me,” Moore said in a recent interview with The E, and the new book crystallized during a series of summers in an Alaskan tidewater town.

Tool to avert blue whale collisions could aid other sea mammals (Costa Rica Star)

Now researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries, Oregon State University and the University of Maryland have combined that trove of tracking data with satellite observations of ocean conditions to develop the first system for predicting locations of blue whales off the U.S. west coast. The system, called WhaleWatch, produces monthly maps of blue whale “hotspots” to alert ships to sites of increased risk of encountering the whales. (see also Science Daily)

Editorial: OSU-Cascades brings dividends (Bend Bulletin)

The new OSU-Cascades campus has brought a dose of parking dysfunction, but that’s minor compared with the continuing dividends the campus will bring to Central Oregon. Consider, for instance, what it is doing for the emergency room at St. Charles in Bend.

OSU players give hope to local families (Register-Guard)

Oregon State University quarterback Marcus McMaryion looked unflappable in the Civil War on Saturday, helping the Beavers to a win over the rival Oregon Ducks. But put him in a Target store? Not so much. “We’ve got to find the power tools section. I think it’s this way,” McMaryion said as he and linebacker Adam Soesman wandered through the aisles of the Albany Target.

OSU-Cascades senior creates simulation for St. Charles ER (Bend Bulletin)

St. Charles officials needed a better way to test potential changes and turned to the Energy System Engineering Department at OSU-Cascades for help. During a summer internship, senior Scottie Duclos designed a simulation of the hospital’s emergency room, allowing hospital officials to see how changes in staff or check-in procedures would impact patient flow. The simulation was so useful, the hospital has retained Duclos as a part-time employee during the school year and asked him to create simulations of its new intensive care unit and other parts of the hospital.

December garden chores: Protect landscape plants from wind, frost (Oregonian)

You’re bundled up to face today’s predicted freezing rain but how did your lawn survive yesterday’s chill? Oregon State University Extension Services offers these reminders of key garden chores, such as fertilizing, pest control, planting and maintenance for frosty December.

Electrode implants could help paralyzed persons (Corvallis Advocate)

Paralysis from a spinal injury can leave a vertebrate without the ability to move in one way or another. Electrical signals from the brain may be impeded from an exchange between itself and the peripheral nervous system’s still-functioning motor and sensory bits. Scientists from Oregon State University and from the University of Utah are hoping to address these sorts of errors in electrical communication, which one day could change lives.

Police: Thefts increase during holidays (Gazette-Times)

In addition to package thefts, police say burglaries increase every December on the Oregon State University campus and throughout Corvallis as many people take vacation over the holidays. In previous years, residential burglaries have resulted in more than $60,000 in stolen property and dozens of thefts.

Reading the ancient air bubbles: OSU’s Ice Core Lab (Corvallis Advocate)

Ed Brook, head of the Oregon State University Ice Core Lab, dons a down jacket and gloves and opens the door to a -16.5° F ice cooler. He reaches into one of the long, cardboard boxes stacked along the wall and pulls out a gallon-sized Ziploc bag. From inside the bag he reveals a 70,000-year-old hunk of Antarctic ice.

Corvallis-OSU Orchestra presents holiday concert (Gazette-Times)

Marlan Carlson, the music director of the Corvallis-OSU Symphony, says the ensemble’s annual holiday concert offers an excellent opportunity to play music that’s “fun, enjoyable and festive.”

The space creatures in your backyard (Corvallis Advocate)

McCune saw an opportunity in this lack of knowledge, and he dedicated the rest of his undergraduate years to creating a taxonomy of the lichens he found in the forest. Now, McCune is a world-renowned lichen expert. He has authored the definitive guide to Pacific Northwest macrolichens, along with many other books and articles, and is currently working on the companion microlichen guide. With classes he teaches at Oregon State University, where he is a professor, through lichen organizations, and on his own, he has created numerous online resources for identifying lichens and learning about their importance. He even has a space on his website dedicated to lichen humor. And the entire time, he has collected lichens: his OSU research lab holds nearly 20,000 specimens, most of which he’s collected personally.
