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.

How science fares in the U.S. budget deal (Science)

The deal funds NOAA’s Sea Grant program, which supports research at colleges across the country, at $63 million, down from $73 million in 2016; the program is a target for elimination in the Trump administration’s 2018 budget. The $10 million decline is largely due to moving support for stock assessments of red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico from Sea Grant to the National Marine Fisheries Service, the law notes, making the funding to Sea Grant “effectively above the fiscal year 2016 level.”

 Empirical evidence: Cats love people (New York Times)

Researchers at Oregon State University offered 38 cats a choice between food, a toy, an interesting smell (catnip, a gerbil) and attention from a human. Thirty-seven percent preferred food to anything else. Eleven percent liked toys, and one cat was preoccupied with the smells of catnip and gerbils. But 19 of them — half! — preferred the company of humans above all, choosing them over other entertainment possibilities.

Research shows wildlife may compete for flowers with native bees (East Oregonian)

Netting wild bees is not as scary as it sounds. At least that’s what Sandy DeBano says. “It’s really not that bad,” said DeBano, an associate professor of entomology at Oregon State University’s Hermiston Agricultural Research and Extension Center. “Bees rarely sting you, and they’re really pretty amazing to look at.”

Oregon Book Award winners announced (KUOW)

A dazzling literary chronicle of one of America’s most haunting writers took the top prize for general non-fiction at this year’s Oregon Book Awards. Corvallis writer Tracy Daugherty’s book, “The Last Love Song: A Biography of Joan Didion,” brings deep focus to the notoriously private Didion’s life, and a biographer’s empathy for the experiences that shaped her precise, exhilarating prose.

On the Oregon Cheese Trail (Cheese Connoisseur)

The Oregon Cheese Guild has played a big part in supporting and promoting local cheesemakers, and Rogue Creamery and makers have developed a close working relationship with Oregon State University.

OSU’s new look to roll out in Bend (Bend Bulletin)

There is a new shield-shaped university seal, with a video to explain what all of the trees, books, stars and a beaver are supposed to mean. New lettering and design will go on signs and documents. A commercial extolling OSU’s expansive role in the world is narrated with God-like intonations that echo (but are not) actor Morgan Freeman.

Coos Bay school-based ARK Project teams with OSU to bring cooking classes to homeless kids (KCBY)

A local school based program is teaming up with Oregon State University to bring cooking classes to homeless kids and their families in the Coos Bay School District.

Disconnected youth: Out of school and out of work in rural America (Garden City Telegram)

For rural youth, a deep attachment to home can also make it difficult to leave to pursue opportunities elsewhere, said Richard Settersten, a professor of family science at Oregon State University.
