Entry Title Date
Climate Change May 22, 2013
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"Burke Hales, an OSU chemical oceanographer, coauthor with Alan Barton, who works at the Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery, looked into the fact that oysters were failing at an incredible rate to spawn and reproduce. Their study linked the production failures to the CO levels in the water. That has incredible implications for the future of not only the shellfish industry, an important industry in the Northwest and other parts of the country, but also for the whole ocean food chain.2"
Pacific Marine Energy Center January 15, 2013
Kurt Schrader, D-OR
"I am also very proud of Oregon State University and their continued leadership in this area. I would be very remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to the incredible work done by Belinda Batten, director of NNMREC, and Annette von Jouanne, professor at Oregon State University, and all the faculty and students in the Wave Energy Department at OSU. Their tireless efforts are the reason we’re able to celebrate this achievement today."

Honoring The Life Of Richard D. Ruppert, Md December 12, 2012
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"Following his residency, Dr. Ruppert returned to OSU, where he was professor of gastroenterology in the Department of Medicine for nine years. He was named assistant dean of the College of Medicine in 1970, adding medical director for patient services two years later. He was named vice chancellor for health affairs at the Ohio Board of Regents in 1974, and in 1977 Dr. Ruppert became the third president of the Medical College of Ohio. During his 16 year term, the Medical College of Ohio saw unprecedented growth, was established as a leader in medicine, and came into its own as a premier institution. Dr. Ruppert’s able guidance directed the Medical College of Ohio through an illustrious time and his leadership is unparalleled. As one colleague described it, “Much of MCO’s success can be credited to Richard D. Ruppert. From a new college on a divided campus—one part farmland and the other a deteriorating county hospital complex—he provided guidance and the political skills to develop the new campus to its present ten structures … The school has emerged from its early growing pains to achieve an identity as a quality medical institution during Dr. Ruppert’s tenure, with a large credit due to his leadership and vision.”"
Recognizing Childhood Obesity Awareness Month September 21, 2012
Pat Tiberi, R-OH
"In Central Ohio, valiant efforts have been made to not only promote healthy eating and physical activity, which have been proven to lower the risk of becoming obese, but also to find other innovative ways to address this issue. The Ohio State University (OSU) is spearheading a number of research initiatives to explore how biological processes appear to play a large role in influencing the risk for obesity. This research is helping us to better understand the causes for obesity so that we can work towards a meaningful solution."
