Promoting Responsible Choices Is Key To Addressing Student Drinking

Sept. 3, 2013 7:15 p.m.

Recent alcohol-related tragedies are still fresh for students and staff as another school year begins. Last October, a Washington State University freshman consumed a lethal amount of alcohol paired with energy drinks. In January, a freshman at the University of Idaho became disoriented after leaving a party and succumbed to hypothermia. Reaching out to college freshmen about responsible drinking habits within their first two weeks of school is key to helping them have a successful school year, says Jennifer Summers, director of Substance Abuse Prevention and Student Success at the University of Oregon. Outreach is one of many strategies school administrators and health officials have adopted.  Both University of Idaho and Washington State University have implemented new rules and requirements to curb dangerous drinking. We'll talk to two school health experts to find out more about what they've been doing differently on campus and some of the results they've seen.

Quinoa Might Be A Good Fit For The Willamette Valley

Aug. 27, 2013 7:35 p.m.

Bolivia and Peru are the current world leaders in quinoa production. Together they produce around 80,000 metric tons of the grain — which is nearly 80 percent all the quinoa grown commercially. But as the Salem Statesman Journal reports, there might be a new location to grow the grain: the Willamette Valley. What began as an 10-acre experiment by a Salem food bank to work around the high cost of quinoa has proved surprisingly successful. In partnership with Washington State University, they have been testing different varieties of quinoa and found one in particular that grows well in the region. The food bank plans to expand its test project next season, and other farmers in the Northwest are expressing interest in growing the gain.

Media and the Muslim World

Oct. 2, 2012 7:40 p.m.

Whether its the video of Neda Agha-Soltan's death, Andy Carvin's twitter feed with instant updates during Middle East riots, or the ability to watch The Innocence of Muslims in Cairo, digital media has played a pivotal role in connecting America and Muslim societies in the past several years. Lawrence Pintak is the founding dean of the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University, and a former CBS News Middle East correspondent. He focuses on the way that American and Muslim cultures interact through media. He says agitprop is playing a larger and larger role in the American-Muslim relations, both by extremists, and, more surprisingly, by journalists. In a time when media can be shared instantaneously between the two worlds, Pintak says journalists can either foster understanding, or fan the flames like the Newsweek "Muslim Rage" cover. Lawrence Pintak will be speaking at the World Affairs Council in Portland on Wendesday, October 3rd at noon. More info is available here.
