The best way to teach adults to save energy might be through their children (Washington Post)

“A lot of the techniques that are recommended through that theory have to do with really practicing skill-building, behavior changes, modeling those behavior changes to others, setting goals — pledging and committing to make changes to behavior — and then monitoring progress over time,” said Hilary Boudet, a sociologist at Oregon State University and the new study’s lead author. “And so we tried to build all those components into each session with the Girl Scouts.” (see also Scientific American, Pacific Standard, LA Times)

It appears to have immediately jumped out of its skin and escaped, just as tree sap flowed over the remaining exoskeleton and a hair left behind by the fleeing rodent.” (see also Daily TelegraphGizMage!

Traffic and Maintenance

NEW! 26th St: As part of the 26th Street and Campus Way intersection improvement project, SW 26th St. between Jefferson Way and Campus Way (View Attachment) will be closed from July 12-24 to make repairs to various broken concrete panels along the street.  Due to the closure, the parking spaces opposite the Women’s Building will also need to be closed.  Campus Way will be open for limited access from the west. The street will be reopened on Monday, July 25.

29th Street: Construction on NW 29th Street will mean periodic street closures between Tyler and Grant Avenues starting on June 20. The project, which will replace aging sanitary sewer lines and mains, is already underway, but closures will be required from about 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily as the project proceeds this month. Up to two blocks will be closed at any given time for roughly three weeks per section as the project move north on 29th Street. Corvallis Transit System (CTS) will alter bus routes around the construction site.

Washington Way: The city will be reconstructing the railroad crossing at 35th Street and Washington Way this summer.  During the reconstruction of the railroad at-grade crossing, road and rail work are to take place, which will result in sidewalk and roadway closures of 35th Street July 25- Aug. 26. Additional information on closure details and duration will be shared as information is received from the city.  For questions or additional information, contact Nathan Patterson.

Hwy 20 Eddyville project update: Travelers between Newport and Corvallis should expect some brief delays to let trucks on and off of the highway at both ends of the project on U.S. 20. Ten-hour nighttime complete closures are planned to occur from Sunday, July 17 through the end of October, five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday. These are necessary because the drilling, blasting, and earthwork operations are above and alongside the highway and the contractor needs enough room and time to do this safely. These are currently scheduled to occur from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., but that time may be adjusted, depending on construction safety needs. The current plan is for the road to be completely open on Friday and Saturday nights.
