Homeless organization sets up protest on the Ave

For the past several weeks, a cluster of tents have congregated in front of the post office on the Ave and Northeast 43rd Street. 

The people living there are homeless members of the community — individuals and families alike — looking to bring awareness to the issue of homelessness in the U-District and throughout Seattle.

The effort is run by the self-proclaimed The Ave Foundation, who describes themselves as “homeless for the homeless.”

Will’s Word of the week: Kook

Hello again, my fellow philologists! We’re already onto our first full week of the quarter, and also back into our regular rhythm of etymologies. I should thank my esteemed colleague, prolific surfer, and good friend, Miles Coleman for suggesting this week’s word: “kook.”

Oh, my, god. Becky, look at his butt.

The butt, short for buttocks, otherwise known as the “booty,” or just “dat ass,” is two rounded portions of the human anatomy located on the posterior pelvic region. 

Physiologically, the buttocks protrude because we walk upright, and the motion created by a leg moving back and forth — known as bipedal locomotion — calls for a more developed gluteal muscle. The buttocks also serve as a cushion for sitting to enable weight to be taken off the feet.

Corporate citizenship.

Those are two words that are rarely heard these days. Instead, most stories about corporations revolve around greed, fraud, and general douchebaggery. But one company is using its resources to actually give something back to society.

Last year, the Amazon Corporation began a program called AmazonSmile, where the company donates .05 percent of each sale to a charity of the customer’s choosing.

After teaching and researching as an associate professor for six years at the University of Chicago, Scott Allard was excited to move from the small, private university to the UW, which he described as, “big, public, and offers lots of different exciting opportunities to wide varieties of students.”

All the world's a gallery

If you have ever needed a compelling reason to explore the UW campus, now is the time. Until Oct. 25,12 works of art are on display in a project called Mad Campus.

This unusual exhibition is from MadArt,a project started by Alison Milliman about six years ago. The program has put on other exhibitions before, such as Mad Homes in 2011, when artists took over five houses before they were set to be demolished. The idea is always to bring art into an everyday context, where people will simply stumble across it.
