Large Synoptic Survey Telescope takes a milestone start with NSF funding

On Aug. 1, the National Science Foundation (NSF) approved long-term funding to the future construction and operation of the UW-involved Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST). Scientists regard the funding as an official start and a milestone of the LSST project.

The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is responsible for the LSST’s construction in Northern Chile. The organization is currently composed of 39 U.S. institutions and six international affiliates, including the UW as a founding member.

Vive aims to help young people prevent sexual assault

Six UW students were recognized this past July for “Best Product Concept” at the Microsoft Research Faculty Summit and Design Expo 2014 for Vive, a wristband designed to prevent sexual assault in high-risk, alcohol-fueled social situations.

Jeff Lindquist named starter for season opener

Redshirt sophomore Jeff Lindquist will be the Washington football team’s starting quarterback against Hawai‘i on Aug. 30, head coach Chris Petersen announced Friday after practice.

Player to watch: John Ross more than just speed

In a blur of dark purple and chrome gold, John Ross left the BYU kick coverage team in his path of speedy destruction. Ross’ 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the Fight Hunger Bowl last December “punctured a hole in the game,” as fellow wide receiver Jaydon Mickens put it, and helped lead the Huskies to their first nine-win season since 2000.

Hopes and expectations high for Huskies as they open new season

The Washington women’s soccer team knows this year needs to be different.

International Students, cash cows for the UW

“If you’re studying, you’re not living,” the man at the residency office said. 

In autumn of 2010, I had gone to the residency office to turn in my Washington Higher Education Residency Affidavit. I had been living in the state of Washington since January of 2007 and had graduated from a Washington state high school. I chose the UW over all other universities, thinking it would be the most affordable way to my diploma. 

Explosive crude oil trains: An issue no one knows about until it’s too late

Seattle residents have stood for hours this July protesting oil trains. What right do they have to protest when they knowingly moved onto a property bordering train tracks? Perhaps it’s because while both normal trains and crude oil trains are noisy, the latter have the potential to explode and take out the entire neighborhood in a fiery ball of death. 

My dog and my paper: Saying farewell to both

I think my dog is dying. She might — hell, she’ll probably go by the time this is published. Mabel. She’s a long-haired, miniature dachshund, chocolate and tan, and she has liver failure and kidney failure and her back legs don’t work so hot and my mom’s getting acupuncture for her. We’ve seen dogs die before, we’ve seen people die too, but it sucks all the same. We got her when I was 8 years old. I’m 22 now. Fourteen is a long time for a dachshund, I’m told.

Ear to the Streets: ‘Fundamentals,’ Porter Ray

Crown him the king of alliteration, the headwaters of internal rhymes endless as the Mississippi. Seattle secret Porter Ray has a signature flow that is nimble and vicious, stringing ideas and imagery together as clothes on the line — jumbled, but in harmony.

Navigating the Big C

Miranda Gadau was in it for the bagels. When a friend of hers found Camp Kesem’s booth tabling in the quad of their freshman year, she convinced Miranda to tag along to the meeting because there would be free bagels. But that’s just how it started. When Gadau sat at the meeting and listened to the mission, she fell in love. 

Northwest Exposure

Since July 27, the Facebook group “FIUTS SUSI 2014” has been filled with posts of love, “adieus,” and nostalgia by those who have participated in the Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) for Student Leaders in Journalism and New Media. 

“Dear lovely people, thanks so much for all the extra care,” one post reads. “[I] felt too much love. Love you all into bits.” 

Building connections

SeaTac and Tukwila lie only about 15 miles outside of Seattle, a major epicenter of health care innovation. Home to the UW Medical Center, a nationally ranked hospital, along with world-class doctors, it’s surprising that venturing a short 15 miles down I-5 yields such drastic changes.
