A journey into Seattle’s recent past

The Chinese thinker and philosopher, Confucius said “Study the past, if you want to define the future,” It is necessary to revisit the past to understand the present, and often to discover ourselves and the context in which we live. There is history around every corner and there is change and transformation in everything human beings touch. Seattle was no different, the city we know today has been reinventing itself rapidly since the 90s and 2000s.

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. 

Op-Ed: Classicism, not classism for the College of Built Environment

In early 2020, I graduated from the Wood Technology Center with a certification in cabinetmaking and architectural woodworking. I am currently a lab assistant and facilities woodworker in the College of Built Environments educational woodshop at the University of Washington. The woodshop, named the Fab Lab, is a teaching resource for colleges of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and planning, and more.

Op-Ed: I confessed to all of my crushes, and you should too

I am a hopeless romantic. I love love. Not only the concept, but also the feeling of it. And if you were my roommate, you would be tired of hearing the stories I had with guys that I’ve recently seen. But I'm not here to talk about these guys, so don’t worry. I’m here to explain the hope and beauty of being a hopeless romantic. 

For the first time in 21 years, residential waste generation exceeded commercial generation

After living in the United States for a year, among many other things, I was struck by the  number of packages delivered daily to my building and passing through the streets of Seattle. It's easier to find stacks of boxes on my neighbors' doors than to see the sunrise. I can't lie, I also get a lot of boxes. More than I should. I have bought more online here than I have ever in my entire existence.

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. 

Acquiring the Taste: The obscurity and quality of Gentle Giant

There’s a common trope among musicians and music fans involving the popularity of music, or lack thereof. One person might decry another’s favorite artist as “too mainstream,” disqualifying or invalidating their output by that metric. A fan of grunge music whose favorite band is Nirvana might hear that the band has become overplayed and lost its edge due to success, and that real, hardcore grunge fans only listen to a garage band formed in Klamath Falls, Oregon in 1991 that nobody’s ever heard of. Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but some seem to directly associate obscurity and quality.
