This week’s Stay at Home Hero consists of another team of dedicated faculty: The OWRI Smoke Exposure Team, including: Elizabeth Tomasino, Michael Qian, James Osborne, Alec Levin, and Patty Skinkis.

Their enormous efforts to help Oregon’s grape and wine industry following the recent wildfires has been truly heroic. While any actual impact of the smoke exposure is still unknown, the smoke exposure team members have provided critical guidance to growers and wine makers alike.

The two flavor chemists, Michael Qian and Elizabeth Tomasino, immediately halted their research projects and converted their labs to provide industry support by analyzing samples of smoke exposure. They installed new columns, calibrated GCMS units, optimized methods to cut sample analysis time, and developed logistics to receive, measure, analyze, and report results for hundreds of samples.

In addition to industry service work, the entire Smoke Exposure Team collaborated on research that within days went from concept to reality to determine state-wide exposure to smoke. The OWRI Smoke Exposure Team has worked very long hours, 7 days a week, since the fires started. They demonstrate an unmatched dedication to supporting Oregon’s grape and wine industry.

Thank you, OWRI Smoke Exposure Team!

FARM 2 FORK FRIDAYS

Please join us for Farm 2 Fork Fridays, our new virtual seminar series that brings you stories about how our food systems work and the efforts behind the scenes to make them more sustainable.

Our stories will help answer questions like:

-Where does our food come from?
-Who makes it and how?
-How does get to our supermarkets?
-And how is Food Science connected to it all?

Don't miss out! Be part of the conversation.

Global change affects landuse, food production and demand. Climate change is exacerbating those changes.

For class, students will analyze ingredient lists of traditional recipes highlighting what might have changed during the 20th century and projecting how resilient their family recipes will be to future changes.

Each student will focus on one recipe or ingredient, find maps of past/current range, explain differences (landuse or climate), and identify replacement ingredients.

Each student will evaluate how projected landuse and climate might affect those ingredients in the future.

• Spatial data overlays
• Personal engagement
• Opportunity for students interested in the future of food preparation

The news cycle never ends. Millions of Americans are reeling from Hurricane Harvey, and will be for months or years to come. Now another hurricane looms. There are the increased tensions with North Korea, the looming decision on DACA, and many other serious concerns.

All of these are important, but sometimes it helps to take a moment for a breath to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. For me that's spending time with family, a walk in the woods, and sometimes a glass of whiskey, which I take neat, "water back."

Another personal pleasure has been opening my mind to the world of science, so I was happy to stumble across this article. I thought it might be a nice change of pace on the final evening of a long holiday weekend. Who knows what the coming week will bring?

November 17th marked the 4th annual Jack Joyce Scholarship celebration. Rogue Brewing and Columbia Distributing awarded 6 scholarships totaling (a very generous) $60,000 to OSU Fermentation Science students. It was a festive evening and the Hot Tub Scholarship Lager was enjoyed by many. The back story there is that one winner from a previous year used their scholarship money to buy a hot tub. So very Rogue.

Food Science in Kyrgyzstan! As a 80" alum and graduate of OSU's FST program. I was sent to aid with micro-economic development weeks after the 9/11 bombing. The time was so interesting I wrote and just published a book about that time, "Circling the World to Find Myself". In the weeks following the 9/11 bombing, Jeri Rutherford wanted to do what ever she could to try and make a difference. Sent to Kyrgyzstan for her science background to help in micro-economic development, she discovered a country, a people, and her own self determination. She also discovered the underbelly of those former soviet country. In a tale halfway between Indiana Jones, James Bond, meeting Lara Croft and Elizabeth Gilbert in Jeri Rutherford’s fast-moving story that will leave you hungry for the next traveling adventure! Who knew volunteerism could be so invigorating, challenging, and rewarding? Thank goodness she lives to tell us the story!
