Six months in: Startup Hall creates common space for students, entrepreneurs

An open room with glass ceilings, filled with whiteboards and long discussion tables, and a lounge lined with leather couches has become the home to some of Seattle’s newest innovators.

Panelists discuss French politics in wake of tragedy

The room was divided into two main spheres: Older community members concentrated in front, younger students coalesced in back. 

Despite their physical separation, the two groups were brought together by their concern about recent world events and thirst for deeper understanding. 

This group, comprised of about 80 people, gathered in Thomson Hall on Wednesday night for a forum on “Paris and Beyond: Making Sense of the World.”

Free Speech Friday: Week of Jan. 23, 2015

The recent article in the UW Daily mentioned the high cost of supplementary materials needed in college courses — namely textbooks and the broken market they exist in. WashPIRG research found that students spend almost $1,200 a year on books, and that textbook publishers engage in practices that drive up costs even more — such as publishing new, often non-essential editions every year.

The take: Ageism — Age is wasted on the young

I’m looking forward to getting older. No, seriously, I can’t wait to have confidence like my parents do about how things are going to go — especially since they are mostly correct. But large chunks of society choose instead to mock and discriminate against older people rather than learning from their wisdom and experience. This ageism is both illogical and harmful to society in major ways.

The take: Ageism — Discrimination is a two-way street

Recently, I was introduced to the idea of ageism, presented in the context of discriminating against elderly people when it comes to careers and popular culture. Upon looking it up, however, the definition was “stereotyping and discriminating against individuals or groups on the basis of their age.” The idea that everyone in the world has the same strengths sounds great, but the reality of it is that, in many contexts, age is an important factor.

UW mechanical engineers protect sea life from marine construction

A sharp sound pulses through the water, emitting pressure waves like a mini explosion. Whale and seal ears are damaged, fish flip upside down, and drown as their swim bladders, or inner-balancing systems, pop like balloons. The sound happens again and again. Marine construction is occurring above water, and the hammering of giant metal piles into the seafloor is extremely loud.
