Thousands of drivers who use Hausman Road as a shortcut from Loop 1604 to I-10 are starting to see some progress on one of the most-heavily traveled roadways in the city. Utilities are going in along the first section of road project nearest Loop 1604.

The widening of Hausman Road will proceed in quadrants to make it easier on the 17,000 drivers that go up and down the road each week. Work began in December to prepare the first section nearest 1604 for utilities.

District 8 Councilman Ron Nirenberg said his predecessors got the project to the voters.

A new exhibit opens January 22 at the UTSA main campus off Loop 1604. The exhibit is an extensive collection of race-related media, photographs, video and items from bygone eras. It’s called For All The World To See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights, and according to Associate Professor of Art History Scott Sherer, that title is significant.  

"The exhibit takes its title from the words of Mamie Till Bradley, who was the mother of Emmett Till," Sherer said.

Your "senior moment" -- forgetting where your keys are -- reciting the wrong child's name -- is the result of normal aging, but what makes up normal is defined by what makes up you -- that is to say your genes affect the way your brain declines.

Studying extended families, the Texas Biomedical Research Institute and Yale University published a study showing just how much that decline is influenced by your genetics.
