November Pain: How elections are failing average Americans

An article in the most recent edition of The Economist reported that the top 0.1 percent of American families currently hold 22 percent of our country’s wealth. That share is just a bit less than the historic peak set in 1929, the same year in which a stock market crash marked the beginning of the Great Depression.

Will’s word of the week: pound

The core meanings of words can live for a long, long time in a language, even one as tenaciously absorbent as English. The meanings of words can show remarkable endurance, at least from this amateur etymologist’s perspective. Word meanings can develop in parallel or come together with the same spellings and with the same pronunciations, but mean markedly different things. One of these homonyms is the ubiquitous “pound,” with its similar noun and verb forms.

Untuxed: ‘The Barber of Seville’

Carbon battle

Non-partisan grassroots group Carbon Washington (Carbon WA) aims to bring progressive environmental legislation to the 2016 state ballot — and it’s in the midst of making strides on the UW campus.

Brick tricks

A cover of darkness means it’s go time for a brick bandit. A person scouring the Quad and Red Square for a keepsake usually flits through the shadows of a cloudy Seattle night instead of risking a daytime raid.

And the theft is often a crime of opportunity. To the prowler, the dark rust-red bricks are easy targets to swoop without the nuisance of planning or foresight.

Student life after the military

Students all know that college tuition is expensive. Even with financial aid and grants, many graduate with large sums of student debt. 

But for Lindsay Church, a UW student veteran who served four years in the Navy as a linguist, the cost of college education was quite different. The cost for her and other student veterans was much more than money; they paid with their security, health, well-being, and years of their youth.

Learning to LAUGH: Using art to reduce stress

For a few seconds, the canvas remains blank. Then a thin line appears, followed by another, and slowly, a shape begins to form. Quiet music rises in the background and in the distance, the lull of waves swell to the surface. Blue paint splashes across the surface, tinged with the white churning of sea foam. A child laughs, a colorful beach ball appears. In a few minutes, an invisible hand has transformed the blank canvas into an idyllic beach. All from a TV screen in a patient waiting room.
