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.

 Storyteller-in-chief: Ed Ray (Oregon Business)

That concept was Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision for a society based on justice, equal opportunity and love for one’s fellow human beings. Since arriving at Oregon State University in 2003, I have consistently talked about creating a community of inclusive excellence and social justice — an aspiration based on Dr. King’s ideal.

Proposed NOAA cuts would disarm facing rising seas, scientists say (Houston Chronicle)

“In many cases it’s local governments or state governments that have the responsibility, and most – especially the local governments – don’t have the wealth of information that the federal government does, and they don’t have immediate access to experts or resources to do a lot of the planning that they need to do,” said Jane Lubchenco , an environmental scientist at Oregon State University and former NOAA administrator under President Barack Obama. “So through the Coastal Zone Management grants, a lot of that information and expertise is made available to them.”

Researchers find link between social behaviors among children and exposure to flame retardants (News Medical)

Researchers from Oregon State University found a significant relationship between social behaviors among children and their exposure to widely used flame retardants, said Molly Kile, an environmental epidemiologist and associate professor in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at OSU. (see also KTVZ, Business Standard)

What is a species? Ornithologists consider ways to define it (Christian Science Monitor)

It could be also useful for researchers studying another particularly speciose group, fishes. “The author is likely correct that nuclear and mitochondrial coadaptation is one hallmark of the independently evolving lineages that we seek to recognize in nature,” Brian Sidlauskas, an ichthyologist and evolutionary biologist at Oregon State University, writes in an email to the Monitor. “Thus, the paper calls attention to another potential diagnostic tool that can be used to help separate species.”

Screamer, animal lover and professor Elena Passarello (WLBZ2)

No one knows screaming quite like Elena Passarello. She’s written essays about it. She won an award for it. She’s also a professor at Oregon State University – that’s not where she does her screaming, though. Her first book, a collection of essays called “Let Me Clear My Throat,” explores in depth the power of the human voice. How it resonates with us as a species and the myriad ways we use it.

OSU-Cascades reveals Bend campus construction plan (Bend Bulletin)

OSU receives WorldAtWork 2017 Seal of Distinction (LIFE@OSU)

The seal is a unique mark of excellence designed to identify organizational success in total rewards effectiveness. Oregon State is one of 160 organizations to be honored as a 2017 recipient.

How your sex life can benefit your work life (Bustle)

Researchers from Oregon State University, the University of Washington, and the University of Oregon conducted a study of 159 employed, married adults. For two weeks, participants were asked to keep a daily diary based on survey questions provided. Questions ranged from how many times an individual had sex between the end of their work shift and the time they made a diary entry, to how happy they were at work that day.

Agency’s zero suicide protocol succeeds (Bend Bulletin)

“If we get people into care, we ought to be able to save those people,” said Susan Keys, an associate professor at OSU-Cascades in Bend. “What do we need to do differently to keep people who come in for care from slipping through that safety net?”
