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.

Oregon’s $8 billion-a-year health problem: Chronic disease (OPB)

General healthy food and exercise guidelines still apply, said Emily Ho, a nutrition researcher at Oregon State University. “I think a lot of people are looking for quick answers,” Ho said, “and really there is no one magic diet that is the answer for everybody.”

Central American forests decimated by cocaine traffickers, OSU research finds (Oregonian)

The American addiction to cocaine may be claiming a previously unseen victim: tropical forests in Central America. But the loss of these forests, home to some of the world’s highest degrees of biological diversity, isn’t due to cultivating the coca plant, from which cocaine is derived. The “narco-deforestation,” as it’s being called by researchers at Oregon State University, stems from the fact that drug dealers are using remote forested lands to launder their profits from the drug trade. (see also International Business Times UK, Eurasia ReviewKTVZ)

New study documents aftermath of a supereruption and expands size of Toba magma system (Heritage Daily)

In fact, Oregon State University researchers were able to link recent eruptions at Mt. Sinabung in northern Sumatra to the last eruption on Earth of a supervolcano 74,000 years ago at the Toba Caldera some 25 miles away.

OSU steps up research on robotics, intelligent systems (Iran Daily)

The College of Engineering at Oregon State University (OSU) has established a new research institute to advance the theory, design, development and deployment of robots and intelligent systems able to interact with people.

Is this seaweed the magical bacon unicorn of vegetables? (Mother Nature Network)

During the summer of 2015, Oregon State University researchers discovered what they amusingly termed “the unicorn” of vegetables: seaweed that tastes like bacon. Their seemingly magical creation was a patented strain of dulse, a dense succulent red marine algae that grows in the wild along the northern Pacific and Atlantic coastlines. Like other varieties of seaweed, dulce is considered a superfood and contains a high amount of minerals, vitamins and protein. Most people eat it raw as a kind of snack food, and it’s a popular staple in countries like Ireland and Iceland.

Extension Service gets taxing district (Register-Guard)

Voters enthusiastically endorsed a plan to create a taxing district for the Benton County branch of the Oregon State University Extension Service on Tuesday, providing a guaranteed source of funding for the local office. In updated unofficial returns posted at 8:36 p.m., Measure 2-106 was passing with more than 76 percent of the vote, 15,258 to 4,660.

Refining the ocean’s thermometer (Science Daily)

The shells of plankton called foraminifera are a record of past ocean chemistry and therefore past climate. New work led by UC Davis and OSU scientists shows that mysterious bands of magnesium in the shells of foraminifera are caused by daily day/night cycles, helping to better define this model for measuring past climate.

New whales, dolphins banned from Vancouver Aquarium (The Globe and Mail)

An American whale specialist said he was disappointed by the development. “Having a safe place and talented people to [rehabilitate] marine animals is a real contribution to their welfare and allows some access by scientists to better understand the animals they care about passionately,” Bruce Mate, director of Oregon State University’s Marine Mammal Institute, said Tuesday in an e-mail.

DIY contraption catches fruit flies (Statesman Journal)

Spring is the time to start looking for fruit flies by trapping them. Oregon State University entomologists describe the tiny spotted wing drosophila as similar to other small fruit flies “but is distinctive for its yellowish-brown body, red eyes and dark unbroken bands encircling its abdomen.”

Students learn practical, hands-on skills in agriculture program (Hermiston Herald)

At Oregon State University’s CDE Days, Hermiston was well-represented. In addition to its two first-place teams, its Meats Evaluation team got second out of 23 teams, and the Food Science team got third out of 16.
