Room for debate: Life in the cloud — Cloudy complications

What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is yours. It seems like a pretty simple concept. But when we bring into the equation the factor of storage, of placement, or of location, then things get a little more complicated.

If I keep my hat at your house, is it really my hat? I own it, but you have access to it anytime you’d like.

Room for debate: Life in the cloud — The Internet as a failed state

Imagine a hostile wasteland where bands of thugs terrorize anyone they perceive as vulnerable. In this place, law enforcement is nominal at best, and the onus for self-protection is placed on the individual citizen. No, it’s not the setting of “Mad Max;” it’s the Internet we use every day.

Room for debate: Life in the cloud — Sometimes a quick peek may not be such a bad thing

The Declaration of Independence states that everyone is entitled to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” This trifecta forms the foundation of many of the familiar privileges guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution, such as a right to bear arms or a right to a fair trial. 

Yet, there is no explicit mention of a “right to privacy.”

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.

Spermtastic swimming 

“For a long time most people thought the sperm played a relatively passive role, but our findings suggest that sperm may have a number of tactics that allow them to bypass or avoid the snares that the female reproductive tract lays out for them,” said Donner Babcock, the study’s lead author and a UW professor of physiology and biophysics, in a UW Health Sciences NewsBeat press release.

More effective treatment for disadvantaged women

It is common knowledge that underprivileged women face many obstacles in receiving accessible, affordable, and acceptable care for depression.
