Golfing While the World Burns (or Freezes)

I’m sitting at my dining room table watching the snow falling outside my window.  It’s been a week now of increasingly deep drifts, of snow packing down into sheets of ice in the streets only to disappear beneath the latest batch of fluffy, frozen water.  Every roof has a thick blanket of perfectly white snow.

The Breakdown – SOTU Edition

The following is a live-stream text reaction to the State of the Union address given by President Trump earlier this week. Two people from the paper sat down at their computers in separate parts of the city, decided to imbibe in some spirits and rip on the President as a way of dealing with their

Central’s GPA Conversion Chart Doesn’t Add Up

If you’ve ever read the syllabus for any of your classes all the way through, you’ve probably noticed that somewhere in there is a class grade to GPA conversion; typically a chart, sometimes an equation.  What you may not have noticed is that not all conversions are the same, professor to professor. When I realized

Empowering Student Accessibility

Our world is becoming increasingly accessible, both for those with disabilities and the able-bodied individuals who benefit from the accommodation needs set out by the Americans with Disabilities Act. We’ve come a long way since ramps and elevators. Ever since the late 1970s, when the Disability Rights Movement truly began gaining momentum, people with disabilities

A History of Censorship in Student Journalism

What rights do we have to express ourselves as students? The Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier decision specifically deals with school censorship of student-run newspapers. Students taking part in a journalism class at Hazelwood East High School helped to edit and write the school paper. Three students had written an article detailing the experiences of

Snow Day Soliloquy

Seattle doesn’t often get snow; once, maybe twice a year, a couple inches at a time. Because the snow is so rare it turns the city into a temporarily magical wonderland of glittering white, the air unusually quiet as the snow absorbs any ambient sounds, the familiar streets and buildings suddenly mysterious with their frosty

SCC WiFi Goes Lo-Fi

There’s a brand new on-campus Wi-Fi procedure for Winter Quarter and heads up: it’s a little buggy In previous terms, the WiFi password was non-user specific; it was posted publicly in the halls and changed at the beginning of each new quarter.  Unfortunately, this didn’t keep non-students from popping their heads in, getting the new

Does Gender Matter?

Have you ever heard someone say “I am a man so I don’t have to do that”? The idea of having different gender roles allows us to have different social expectations when it comes to gender. This has confused me ever since I was a child. I have wondered where these ideas come from every

Homo and Homeless for the Holidays

Yep. It’s December. The last month of the year, and goodness this year has flown by! Fall Quarter is over, finals are fading from the sight of students, and the holiday season is in full swing. Traffic is excruciating and rage-inducing. Christmas music accosts us in every conceivable establishment, advertisements for 50% off store-wide are

The Border Is a Lie: Enough Is Enough

There was a time before the USA, before Mexico, before any need to demarcate the economic line between ‘us’ and ‘them’. There are people who are gathering in Tijuana. They are arriving by the thousands, on foot, by bus and truck and every means imaginable. They are coming alone and in groups, enfeebled and with
