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.

 A rare look at the disappearing world of Antarctica’s whales (National Geographic)

The Oregon State University marine ecologist brings the rifle to his shoulder and pulls the trigger. The dart flies into the animal’s dorsal fin just as it sinks beneath the waves. It’s a perfect shot: The small GPS sensor will stay lodged in the whale’s fin for a month. Each time the giant surfaces, its sensor will transmit the location to satellites.

Bugs butchering nation’s forests (CBS)

An alternative strategy, also a slow one, is to plant trees 50 or 100 miles away from their normal range so they can escape pests, or adapt to a more favorable climate, said Steven Strauss, a professor of forest biotechnology at Oregon State University. “Mother Nature knows best,” he said. “It’s assisted migration.”

OSU student crusades for ethically made clothing (Gazette-Times)

Recine, a 20-year-old apparel design major at OSU, returned from her two-week trip to the Dominican Republic in mid-August. By early September, Recine had founded Sweatshop Free OSU, part of Sweatshop Free Apparel, a coalition of several campus groups looking for increased transparency and accountability in the manufacture of OSU apparel.

Northwest Bookshelf: A gift guide for greenies (Cascadia Weekly)

In a mossy, tangled grove of old-growth conifers east of Eugene, Ore. in the 15,800-acre Lookout Creek watershed, sits a nondescript campus of buildings operated by Oregon State University: the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest in the Willamette National Forest, on the verdant and soggy west slope of the Oregon Cascades.

Snip some stems and have new plants in spring (Herald and News)

Whether you plant the results of your “snip and stick” project or give them away, propagating by cuttings can be a rewarding process. Although some sources of information can be intimidating, Neil Bell, a horticulturist for Oregon State University Extension Service, has good news.

OSU-Cascades hospitality course in class, live-streamed (KTVZ)

 The hospitality management program at Oregon State University – Cascades in Bend will offer two 10-week courses this winter designed for hospitality industry professionals. The courses were made possible through a generous gift from Robin and Curt Baney, owners of the Oxford Suites and the OXFORD hotel in Bend.

Bend’s countless deer population vex, but mostly charm, its neighbors (Bend Bulletin)

Deer and elk and other hunted animals concentrate in urbanized and suburbanized human areas for numerous reasons, including lessened predation pressure, said Dana Sanchez, an extension wildlife specialist at OSU-Cascades. This is how we have a higher than natural density of deer. “They have to eat something,” Sanchez said.
