Study will examine whether 'zooming out' helps smokers quit

“Giving up smoking is easy,” Mark Twain purportedly once said. “I’ve done it hundreds of times.”. But the reality is, quitting smoking is really, really hard. Nicotine is addictive, both physically and mentally. A given effort to quit succeeds less than 10 percent of the time, no matter the method. Even with a pack of smokes costing around $6, around 15 to 20 percent of the population can’t seem to kick the habit.

Preseason Camp Preview: QB

Who's back: In an alternate reality, Anthony Brown might have transferred to Oregon early in 2020, had a full offseason and preseason camp to battle for the starting position, won that job and been the guy who led the Ducks to their second straight Pac-12 title last fall. The pandemic laid waste to that idea, of course, so Brown bided his time behind starter Tyler Shough. When the UO offense began to struggle at the midway point of the season, Brown provided a boost off the bench in both the Pac-12 Championship game win over USC and the Fiesta Bowl loss to Iowa State.
