I had heard that middle and high school students need more sleep time and that their circadian rhythms would have them go to bed about 11 p.m. and wake up at 8 a.m. Most of them have to be at school or on a bus by then. Consider this: a century ago schools in our country started at […]
Walker starts out telling us that two-thirds of adults in all developed nations don’t sleep eight hours a night. What are the consequences? They include a compromised immune system, increased risk of cancer, becoming pre-diabetic – and that’s just a few of the dastardly things that can be prompted by lack of sleep.
I almost stopped reading because I […]
I’m Eugene’s First Citizen. I join a relatively short list of people who’ve helped shape our community. I feel proud and humble. I was honored at the Eugene Chamber’s Celebration of Business just a month ago.
So many people reached out to share my joy and say “thanks.” Flowers, plants, chocolate, hand-written notes, email and social media posts. Plus, […]
My girlfriend Leeza surprised me with a week-long trip to Hawaii for my birthday. I used to live there and she had never been.
I always talk about how beautiful it is and how I love to SCUBA dive, so it was an easy decision for her to make. She chose Maui because it was the only major island I hadn’t been to yet. […]
Of course, you’ve heard there’s going to be a total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, a rare event with the “path of totality” stretching across Oregon in a narrow swath, including Newport, Corvallis, Salem, Madras and Baker City.
It would be difficult to miss the news stories about people’s excitement over this astronomical phenomenon or the headlines declaring an “apoc-eclipse” with cautions about major traffic congestion and the possibility of markets running […]
It seems like most people have strong opinions about the Oregon Country Fair. In the short time I’ve lived in Eugene, I’ve heard so many stories – some good, some bad, but all of them strange. I had to find out for myself what it was like. My girlfriend and I decided to go on Friday, hoping to […]
When I was in Yachats recently, I saw a display of work by pre-school children who were recreating a couple of works by great Masters – Van Gogh and Picasso. At first, I was impressed by how well they did. Then, I realized that I often hear people say, “I could have created that.” It’s easy to replicate, yet harder to fashion an original […]
I like to capture the seasons in my home. This weekend, I was bringing out glass balls to catch spring’s light (the weather was wonderful!) tucking dappled wooden eggs in baskets, and putting away an evergreen tree theme that hung around after the Holidays. I realized that this new color palette was energizing and by making fewer than a dozen changes, I had reset […]
I ride my bike everyday in and around Eugene, pedaling through traffic in the rain and fog over dimly lit streets. I look into the faces of people riding bikes and driving cars, and I see trouble in the streets.
Far too many people are using their phones and texting while driving. And judging by what I see, it is not a safe practice. According […]
