Fix the world in five minutes or less: Don't filter me, bro

The advent of the Internet changed how we consume media. Instead of simply being stuck with the content available in our local newspapers and magazines, we were suddenly able to access information from around the world. Communication increased, worldviews expanded, and society moved forward.

Tired of the status quo?: Brainstorming a better economy

Despite statistical signs of economic recovery, many feel that we are still on “hard times.” Regardless of what research or statistics tell us, it’s difficult to fight certain gut feelings. Instead of an unregulated market that privileges businesses over humans, it might be time to look at changing the system to benefit the people.

The sex appeals: Come on!

Sex is a minefield of dos and don’ts, expectations, and screw-ups. Sometimes it’s hard to talk frankly about mashing your body into and against someone else’s body. I mean come on, it’s ridiculous.

Last year, when Yogis at UW (YUW) reached its 300-person capacity within the first month of school, the club founder, Alysha Greig, realized that the UW needed something bigger than a Registered Student Organization (RSO) to take care of students’ mental health.    

Transit troubles

Heron Paulson-Quick has a passion for dancing. She’s been doing it for four years, and though she lives on campus in Seattle, she’s willing to make a trek to Zamani Culture House, a dance studio in Bothell, to continue, because it’s the only place in the area that teaches the styles she’s interested in. Her journey consists of 40 minutes walking, and 35 minutes on two buses. 

Each night she goes to Bothell, Paulson-Quick takes two dance classes, totaling two and a half hours.

An unlikely source affecting ocean chemistry 

The migration of tiny zooplankton and crustaceans like krill has a great effect on ocean chemistry, according to new research from the UW.

During these large migrations, urine is secreted. The ammonia in the urine plays a significant role in some regions of the ocean that aren’t as oxygenated. 

UW researcher predicts population increase

The global population is on the rise. Using new statistical models, never before applied to population estimates, statisticians have determined global population could be 11 billion people by 2100, 2 billion more than previously predicted. 

The figure comes from a new Bayesian statistical model, which uses the most recent data on population, fertility, and mortality, and also allows researchers to incorporate past experience in future projections.
