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.

Growth and balance in Corvallis, Oregon (Marketplace)

Corvallis, Oregon, is a college town. It’s a small city of about 50,000 people, home Oregon State University. The area votes Democratic — it’s a sanctuary city with a sanctuary campus in the heart of very blue state.   Corvallis is wrestling with a changing economy, trying to balance issues of town, gown and growth — mainly how to use some of the college brainpower to create a startup hub, without damaging the city’s culture.

Doughnut shops and surf apps (Marketplace)

Building a business from the ground up can be quite an undertaking. Even if you have a brilliant idea, you almost always need help and support to execute it. At the Oregon State University Advantage Accelerator in Corvallis, Oregon, the university is partnering with the county and investors to create a support system for budding entrepreneurs.

New bio-sensing contact lenses will utterly transform our lives (Futurism)

Using ultra-thin transistor technology, researchers from Oregon State University have found a way to design contact lenses capable of registering information about the wearer’s physiological state. (see also Counsel & Heal, Wareable)

OSU studying bighorns to learn more about risk from ‘killer’ bacteria (Northwest Sportsman)

Now, Oregon State University researchers are studying several aspects of the California bighorn sheep herd in the state – including movement, habitat use and survival – to gain insight into the animal’s risk for contracting the killer strain known as M. ovi (pronounced m-ovee). The disease spreads through contact between domestic sheep flocks and bighorn sheep, or from bighorn to bighorn.

What to expect after Oregon’s wettest season since 1999 (Statesman Journal)

Neil Bell of Oregon State University Extension Service said our gardens have been pummeled this winter, leaving beds condensed and wet. This most affects planting seeds this spring, such as in vegetable gardens.

Horticulturist appointed director of OSU’s Mid-Columbia Center (Capital Press)

Veteran horticulturist Steve Castagnoli is the new director of Oregon State University’s Mid-Columbia Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Hood River.

Listen to OSU professor who built a robot talk about commercialization,  mobility and why his robot walks like a chicken (Willamette Week)

At TechfestNW on March 24,  Jonathan Hurst, the chair of the Robotics Department at Oregon State University and the co-founder of Agility Robotics, described a robot that he and his crew have built that’s perhaps more adroit than any other robot in the world.

How the Black Dahlia murder sparked a pop culture fascination and affected public perception (National Post)

Short’s story and its implications for popular films dominate Hard-Boiled Hollywood: Crime and Punishment in Postwar Los Angeles (University Of California Press), by Jon Lewis. A professor of film studies at Oregon State University, Lewis has written 11 books, including a study of Francis Coppola and an account of how censorship saved the film industry

When hot coffee means no coffee (Food Processing.com)

Hot coffee is great in your cup, but heat is not a good thing for coffee crops, research at Oregon State University suggests. A study by OSU’s College of Forestry showed that when Coffea arabica plants were subjected to short-duration heat waves, they became unable to produce flowers and fruit. That means no coffee beans — and no coffee.

How should I replant my daffodils? (Oregonian)

Rainy as it is, spring has sprung and that means gardening will start ramping up. Got questions? Get answers from Ask an Expert, an online question-and-answer tool from Oregon State University’s Extension Service.

OSU bee expert wins top award from Entomological Society (LIFE@OSU)

Millions of years ago, this tick was probably gorging on a monkey (Washington Post)

“Two tiny holes indicate that something picked a tick off the mammal it was feeding on, puncturing it in the process and dropping it immediately into tree sap,” study co-author George Poinar Jr., an amber expert and professor emeritus at Oregon State University, said in a statement.

How much do dogs and cats remember? (Live Science)

Take free-roaming dogs, for example. About 75 percent of the world’s dogs aren’t pets and don’t live in human homes, said Monique Udell, an assistant professor of animal and rangeland sciences at Oregon State University. A memory that helps dogs excel at scavenging can help them survive on the streets, Udell said.
