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.

‘One morning we came in and everything was dead': Climate change and Oregon oysters (KVAL)

That is when the hatchery turned to Oregon State University for help. The Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery believed “ocean acidification,” a byproduct of climate change, was to blame.

How old is too old for downhill skiing? (Bend Bulletin)

There are two types of muscle contractions: those that happen when muscles are doing work and when they’re resisting work. Downhill skiing results in the latter, which makes it great for building muscle mass, said Timothy Burnett, a kinesiology instructor at Oregon State University-Cascades. Building muscle mass is especially important for people in their 70s and 80s, when muscle loss accelerates.

‘I hope I can just return it to the people it belongs to,': Flag found on Oregon highway (KVAL)

It happened Monday night when Berg was headed home to Newport after a full day of classes at Oregon State. “So this is literally exactly how I found it,” said Berg. “It was in the middle of the highway yeah, and it was pouring down rain and it was at the beginning of the passing lane and I just thought: Well I’ve got to do what’s on my heart but I don’t want to get run over.”

A soggy February and a chilly winter (Democrat-Herald)

Winter in the mid-Willamette Valley — that’s December, January and February to weather experts — started off chilly, had more snow and sleet events than usual and ended ridiculously wet, said Kathie Dello, deputy director of the Oregon Climate Service at Oregon State University.

Cross-laminated timber beginning to take root in U.S. construction (Daily Commercial News)

The Portland firm has been working with scientists at Portland State University and Oregon State University to test the panels’ strength by subjecting them to hundreds of thousands of pounds of pressure. They are also testing various methods for joining the massive panels together.

OSU charges grid energy storage hopes (Corvallis Advocate)

Battery technology is getting a boost thanks to scientists at Oregon State University. OSU College of Science researchers recently demonstrated that hydronium ions could be reversibly stored in a new type of battery made with a solid crystalline organic material called perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydridem, or PTCDA.

The Who’s Who of campus dining (Corvallis Advocate)

Oregon State University is charged with feeding the mouths of thousands in the community. With three main dining halls on the east, west, and south sides of campus, the Memorial Union, and a few stop ‘n’ shops sprinkled in between, there’s no easy way to try them all.

Understanding hop aroma and flavor (Beer Infinity)

We have a very special episode of the Beervana Podcast for you this week, and I want to tease it by quoting from a section of the interview. Patrick and I visited the labs and brewery of Tom Shellhammer, who is a professor of fermentation science at Oregon State University and one of the world’s leading hops researchers. Before we did the interview, he took us around his labs

Free online ‘Intro to Permaculture’ course (Permaculture Magazine)
