One more course: Seattle Culinary Academy no longer faces closure for now

Reacting to public outcry, on Wednesday, May 4, the Chancellor's office sent an email to the Seattle Colleges community. “After careful consultation with our trustees, program staff, business, and elected leaders,” the email said, “we have come to the decision that we will continue with enrolling students for all four programs for Fall 2022.”

Abortion rights activists rally in downtown Seattle after leaked Supreme Court draft

A leaked draft of a majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito indicates that the Supreme Court has voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, effectively nullifying any constitutional protection for women in the United States seeking an abortion. The implications of this are especially worrying to those closest to the issue: feminists and other proponents of women’ rights, healthcare workers, and women in marginalized communities. 

Reason for hope: A look at the Mariners coming season

“We're really excited to get back and play in front of them,” said Mariners outfielder Jarred Kelenic as the Seattle Mariners began their opening homestand against the Houston Astros last Friday, April 15. As the dawn of a new season begins, it's important to take a step back and recognize where the expectations of success came from for this playoff-hungry team. 

Earth Day: Choosing action

Humans are destroying this planet. I don’t believe this is new information to the majority of us. We have all seen the increasing number of natural disasters, the waste being dumped on the land and in the sea, and even a change in local temperature. Any day you flip onto a news channel, you are likely to see at least one segment or statistic pointing towards climate change. And we are to blame. Our ceaseless desire for material possessions and financial gain is degrading our planet at an alarming rate. 

Christina Quarles: The universal experience of existing

“Los Angeles–based artist Christina Quarles paints ambiguous figures who stretch, intertwine, and merge in and with their surroundings, their bodies subjected not only to the weight and gravity of the physical world, but also to the pleasures and pressures of the social realm.” That is the greeting I received when entering the exhibit at the Frye Art Museum, the one that prepared me very little for what I was about to experience—which is the point, I realized, because what I experienced was a transcendence from my own self, and my world became acrylic, and colorful, and full of grief.

Rejoice! M2M, Capitol Hill’s first Asian store is finally here

After opening their first reiteration of an “urban style” store in Toronto, H Mart, the largest Asian supermarket chain in the United States, will be opening a new branch called M2M in Capitol Hill. It is set to open its doors this coming Friday, April 15. After all the delays and anticipation. On a Facebook post, Todd Jordan, a Capitol Hill Local, expressed his excitement saying “it’ll be great when it finally opens,” and finally this new Korean-American supermarket is finally ready to welcome everyone to their store. 

Clarissa Perez: Artistry, advocacy, and a mission to foster both

During the COVID-19 pandemic, suicide attempts in adolescent females skyrocketed by 50%. It was almost 4% in young males. This is only one of the many reasons that 20-year-old artist and activist Clarissa Perez felt called to action. Chartering Joy&TheHood, a youth wellness collective whose goal is to mentor at-risk youth, Perez hopes to encourage mindfulness, confidence, and the means and methods to tell their stories. 

Seattle in Season: Seattle’s monthly produce guide – April

Spring is finally upon us. The days are longer, temperatures are rising, and new fruits and vegetables are making their appearance. On a sunny Sunday afternoon, I was able to visit the Ballard Farmers Market and see the beautiful array of produce myself. Located along Ballard Ave NW, between Vernon Pl and 22nd Ave, the Ballard Farmers Market has been showcasing local farmers and vendors year-round since 2000. The market is open weekly from 9:00 a.m to 2:00 p.m. With the lively music and bustling crowd, the emerging energies of Spring and warm weather radiated from the closed-off street. Bright bouquets of cherry blossoms were in attendance as well.  Better yet, rows of colorful produce and locally-made goods lined every inch of cobblestone available.
