Bend's Newest Roundabout Opens

Posted By on Fri, Jul 29, 2016 at 6:05 AM

Local SE Bend residents turnout out to welcome the opening of the city's 32nd Roundabout at Murphy and Parrell road on Thursday.  The opening came one month early and city officials say it will come in under it's $2 million dollar budget.  On hand were Mayor Clinton, council members, Fire Chief Larry Langston, City Manager Eric King, and others.

Langston told gatherers that the new roundabout will provide quicker and easier access for fire access.  The SE Fire station nearby makes 1200 response calls each year and the new roundabout will provide quicker access to Highway 97, SE 3rd, Brookswood, and other locations, he said.  The first two vehicles to use the new roundabout were fire vehicles, after the dedication ribbon was cut by Mayor Clinton and others.

Local resident, Monica Standen, said she is thrilled with the new roundabout telling the Source Weekly that "there have been so many accidents at this corner."  Between 2007 and 2015, there were 16 reported crashes at the intersection, eight of which involved an injury.

Science Meets Ancient Chinese Philosophy, with Dr. Edward Slingerland

Posted By on Wed, Jul 13, 2016 at 9:54 AM

On tonight’s show, science gets together with ancient Chinese philosophy, and it likes what it finds.

Dr. Edward Slingerland, an internationally renowned Chinese philosophy expert, draws on both cutting-edge science and ancient Chinese strategies to show how our modern Western approach of striving our guts out doesn’t seem to lead to success or happiness.

In fact, he observes, it seems that getting practiced enough in something that it comes naturally is the way to avoid forcing things in the moment (which is actually counterproductive to succeeding).

Dr. Slingerland will talk about this, how achieving that sort of effortlessness is the way to personal charisma, and much more on tonight’s show. His book he’ll be discussing is “Trying Not To Try: The Art And Science of Spontaneity.” Join us and see how we can better our work, relationships, and lives—if we can just get out of our own way.
