Despite House’s utter failure as a thief, Assange agreed to pay him for press strategy advice and other work for WikiLeaks, House says. He made House sign a non-disclosure agreement (an agreement he has obviously now violated), then handed over $5,000 in cash and gave House an encrypted cell phone so they could stay in touch. House had the phone nearby when he later pleaded the fifth in front of the government’s WikiLeaks grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia.
Adam Kent: Mount Hood is actually less mafic than many Cascade volcanoes (as it lacks a lot of basaltic output), but you are correct in one way in that Hood also lacks the evolved magmas (rhyolites) that are known from some Cascade centers (Crater Lake, Three Sisters). I am not sure what the role of the CRBG (Columbia River Basalts) has in all of this. There is no magma of the CRB type left now, (most CRB are ~15 or so million years old). However the thick sequences of the CRBG in this area could certainly influence the properties of the crust in the region, which in turn influences the ability of various magma types to move. So there could definitely be some effect.
