Avoid a ‘wild west’ of mercy killings, say those who’ve grown up with assisted-suicide laws (National Post)

Most of the undergraduates Courtney Campbell teaches at Oregon State University have literally grown up with a law that lets doctors help the terminally ill kill themselves.

Ellagic acid in red wine could help you burn fat (Science 2.0)

These plant chemicals are not a weight-loss miracle, cautions Neil Shay, a biochemist and molecular biologist at Oregon State University. “We didn’t find, and we didn’t expect to, that these compounds would improve body weight,” he said. But by boosting the burning of fat, especially in the liver, they may improve liver function in overweight people.
