War from the sidelines: Brian Castner

When it comes to large-scale conflict, there exists a constant element of uncertainty. Political biases, loyalties, and obligations tend to obscure or stifle what’s truly happening on the ground, leading to embellishment at best, and disinformation at worst. This “fog of war” can be a major impediment to all parties involved— opposing factions, civilians, and journalists.

Coffee Snob: Exploring Seattle’s coffee scene – Ugly Mug Cafe & Coffee Roasters

Ugly Mug Cafe originated in 1995 in the University District.
