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.

The Impossible Burger: Inside the strange science of the fake meat that ‘bleeds’ (Wired)

This sort of deconstruction is common in food science, a way to understand exactly how different compounds produce different flavors and aromas. “In theory, if you knew everything that was there in the right proportions, you could recreate from the chemicals themselves that specific flavor or fragrance,” says Staci Simonich, a chemist at Oregon State University.

Instructional designers, looking to be heard (Insider Higher Education)

Some instructional designers who lack research experience want to compensate by collaborating with instructors — even when they perceive their institutions don’t support such partnerships, according to the study by researchers at Oregon State University Ecampus.

Why business-friendly reforms are sparking street protests in France (The Atlantic)

The proposed reforms, however, would allow workers and employees within individual firms to negotiate the agreements themselves. “Union collective bargaining covers over 95 percent of the labor force,” Dr. Alison Johnston, an associate professor of political science specializing in labor markets and collective bargaining politics at Oregon State University, told me.

Talking ’bout my dissertation (Science)

Melissa McDougall, a Ph.D. candidate in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University in Corvallis, joked that her research on the prenatal benefits of vitamin E have caused some to call her “E-centric.” An actual joke! From a scientist! And it made sense!

OSU team identifies protein that could lead to gonorrhea vaccine (OPB)

Researchers at Oregon State University have identified a pair of proteins that might be used to create a vaccine for gonorrhea. (see also Jefferson Public Radio)

Huge sea turtles slowly coming back from the brink of extinction (San Francisco Chronicle)

There were increases in North and South America on the Atlantic coast but setbacks in the Asia Pacific region. “The evidence is widespread and convincing,” said Selina Heppell, head of Oregon State University’s department of fisheries and wildlife, who wasn’t part of the study. (see also New York Times)

The world’s biggest and smallest animals face the greatest risk of extinction (Smithsonian)

The team’s findings, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, show that animals with the highest and lowest body mass faced greater threat of extinction than species in the “Goldilocks zone,” as an Oregon State University press release puts it, referring to animals that are “neither too big, nor too small.”

CTL helps Team Oregon craft online course (LIFE@OSU)

Since 1984, Team Oregon – a statewide outreach program of the College of Public Health and Human Sciences – has trained more than 190,000 riders in the knowledge and skills necessary for safe and responsible motorcycling.

New assay leads to step toward gene therapy in deaf patients (Lund Report)

Scientists at Oregon State University have taken an important step toward gene therapy for deaf patients by developing a way to better study a large protein essential for hearing and finding a truncated version of it.

Co-op resident flies Confederate flag across from Black Cultural Center (Democrat-Herald)

People attending a back-to-school social event at Oregon State University’s Black Cultural Center Wednesday evening smiled, chatted amiably and greeted new arrivals by name with hugs and handshakes as upbeat music played. But just across the street of the center at 100 SW Memorial Place, in the window of a Christian co-operative residence building, the battle flag of an army that fought a war to keep black people enslaved hung from a resident’s window.

Back, neck pain become more common as we age, but simple exercises can offer relief (Union Democrat)

Timothy Burnett, a kinesiology instructor with Oregon State University-Cascades, said in his experience working as a personal trainer, the low back pain many older adults complained to him about was because of tight hip flexors, the group of muscles that stretch from the top of both femur bones into the pelvis and to the bottom of the spine.

Scientists’ second warning to humanity (Corvallis Advocate)

Oregon State University has issued “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice” in which they reiterate the warnings of the original message, as well as detail new proposals to adequately “transition to sustainability.” The problem is, so much time has passed since the 1992 message that new, more immediate changes need to be made. Make no mistake, we’ve wasted our time.

Swifts gather on OSU campus (Corvallis Advocate)

We may not get as many Vaux’s Swifts here in Corvallis, but you can still witness this amazing event on the Oregon State University campus. Their chimney of choice seems to be that of Wiegand Hall, located just off 30th on Campus Way. Over the next couple weeks, take a stroll just before sunset and watch these little birds in action.
