Professor Adam Kent of Oregon State University and Assistant Professor Kari Cooper of University of California-Davis, have determined that Mount Hood has been primed to erupt about 1 percent of the time during the past 100,000 years. The most recent eruptions of the tallest peak in Oregon were about 220 years ago and 1,500 years ago.

Aging men: More uplifts, fewer hassles until the age of 65-70 (Science Daily)

“In general, life gets better as you age in the sense that older adults on average have fewer hassles — and respond to them better — than younger adults,” said Carolyn Aldwin, a gerontology professor in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University and lead author on the study. “And they also experienced more uplifts — a least, until their mid-70s.” (see also Third Age, Consumer Affairs)

City Club forum focuses on mental health (Bend Bulletin)

“Stigma really impedes people seeking help. They’re afraid someone will know,” said panelist Susan Keys, an associate professor and senior researcher at Oregon State University Cascades Campus. “Mental illness is not something we talk about.”

Dog brains respond to calls just like human brains (New Scientist)

“Similar brain activity does not necessarily mean that dogs and humans, or even individuals within each species, experience sounds and vocalisations in the exact same way,” says Monique Udell of Oregon State University in Corvallis. “We should take care to recognise and value the unique perceptual and emotional worlds of each species, just as much as we have come to value the similarities.”

Benton Place Street and Parking Changes: During the Washington Way Realignment construction project (March 2014 – September 2014), Benton Place will be changed to two-way traffic.  This change will provide temporary two-way connection between Jefferson St. and Washington Way, to alleviate congestion caused by the closure of 15th Street. Benton Place is located just west of Kerr Administration and McAlexander Fieldhouse.  At the conclusion of the project, Benton Place striping will be restored to its existing one way northbound configuration.  For more information, see http://oregonstate.edu/dept/facilities/cpd/construction-traffic-and-safety.
