Pac-12 football power rankings

If you know me, you know that I have many strong opinions about a lot of different sports-related topics. You’ve also probably realized there are quite a few teams that I have a — let’s say slight, even though that’s not the right word — distaste for in a few different sports.

Bears take down Egger and Hawke in semifinal

For the second year in a row, Emmett Egger and Jeff Hawke made a deep run in the main doubles draw of the United States Tennis Association/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (USTA/ITA) Northwest Regional Championships. For the second year in a row, the UW’s run was cut short by a pair from Pac-12 foe California.

Huskies fire three past Beavers in shutout

The Washington women’s soccer team wanted to give its fans an entertaining performance in its third-to-last home game of the season. The UW did just that Monday night against Oregon State, earning a 3-0 victory at Husky Soccer Stadium.

Fix the world in five minutes or less: Don't filter me, bro

The advent of the Internet changed how we consume media. Instead of simply being stuck with the content available in our local newspapers and magazines, we were suddenly able to access information from around the world. Communication increased, worldviews expanded, and society moved forward.

Tired of the status quo?: Brainstorming a better economy

Despite statistical signs of economic recovery, many feel that we are still on “hard times.” Regardless of what research or statistics tell us, it’s difficult to fight certain gut feelings. Instead of an unregulated market that privileges businesses over humans, it might be time to look at changing the system to benefit the people.

The sex appeals: Come on!

Sex is a minefield of dos and don’ts, expectations, and screw-ups. Sometimes it’s hard to talk frankly about mashing your body into and against someone else’s body. I mean come on, it’s ridiculous. But talk you must – because otherwise stereotypes and tropes will get the best of you. Consider premature ejaculation.

Not a one market town

U-District 

This is the closest farmers market to campus, and it’s open all year. The market has nearly doubled in size over the last few years, moving from the University Heights Elementary parking lot onto the Ave. Now, each Saturday, the Ave is closed from Northeast 50th Street to Northeast 52nd Street.

Mindfulness mission

Last year, when Yogis at UW (YUW) reached its 300-person capacity within the first month of school, the club founder, Alysha Greig, realized that the UW needed something bigger than a Registered Student Organization (RSO) to take care of students’ mental health.    

Transit troubles

Heron Paulson-Quick has a passion for dancing. She’s been doing it for four years, and though she lives on campus in Seattle, she’s willing to make a trek to Zamani Culture House, a dance studio in Bothell, to continue, because it’s the only place in the area that teaches the styles she’s interested in. Her journey consists of 40 minutes walking, and 35 minutes on two buses. 

Each night she goes to Bothell, Paulson-Quick takes two dance classes, totaling two and a half hours. 

On the frontlines

Reporting at the center of the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa might be unimaginable to most college students; but Cooper Inveen, a senior in the UW’s journalism program, enjoyed it.

An unlikely source affecting ocean chemistry 

The migration of tiny zooplankton and crustaceans like krill has a great effect on ocean chemistry, according to new research from the UW.

During these large migrations, urine is secreted. The ammonia in the urine plays a significant role in some regions of the ocean that aren’t as oxygenated. 

UW researcher predicts population increase

The global population is on the rise. Using new statistical models, never before applied to population estimates, statisticians have determined global population could be 11 billion people by 2100, 2 billion more than previously predicted. 

The figure comes from a new Bayesian statistical model, which uses the most recent data on population, fertility, and mortality, and also allows researchers to incorporate past experience in future projections.

Songbird singing reveals cell growth 

During the breeding season, songbirds sing the melodies they do because their specialized brain cells are multiplying. A new UW study sheds light on this ornithological phenomenon, which may in turn provide insight into cell replacement in humans.
