Massive regatta awaits Huskies in Bay Area

In 1903, the Washington rowing team pulled past California in the first regatta between the two teams. 111 years and 102 duals later, the UW women’s crew head coach Bob Ernst says the dynamic between the Huskies and the Bears is not just a rivalry in collegiate sports — it’s “the rivalry.” That’s why, for both the UW men and women, losing to the top-ranked Golden Bears this Saturday morning in Redwood Shores, Calif., is not an option.

Why Israel?: The problems with ASUW Resolution 20-39

The blind hatred that some of the world bears for Israel, the world’s only Jewish state, is a deeply troubling conundrum. There are undoubtedly issues with certain policies of Israel’s government and particular facets of its society — such as the building of settlements — and these must be addressed. But this is only a small part of a much more complicated conflict that stretches back more than 2,000 years, and the solution lies not in misleading propaganda but in fair and open dialogue.

Think about that.

Don’t think about it in the abstract. Think about it in terms of real people. When I call to mind six of the women closest to me, I can say for sure I know two of them have been raped. The others, I don’t know, because in American society, we don’t talk about these things.

CollegiATE: Strawberry bruschetta

Sometimes the simplest dishes are the most rewarding. This twist on a basic bruschetta is just in time for spring. It’s a great way to use all the fresh strawberries that are popping up in grocery stores. Subbing strawberries for tomatoes makes a snack that has a delicate balance of savory and sweet. If you have the extra dough to spend, try adding a layer of creamy goat cheese to the bread before spooning on the strawberries. I like to use a baguette, but any sturdy bread will do just fine.

Claude Theard, UW laundry warehouse worker

By Imana Gunawan The Daily

Piles of linens, hospital gowns, and scrubs fill large bins scattered across the spacious hall. Every so often, large bags filled with garments are transported across the room via an overhead bin. Across the building, piles of surgical linen falls into laundry shoots and into a “tunnel washroom.”

Fighting for $15

Imagine rising at 3 o’clock in the morning several times each week for a 4 a.m. shift. Having to work 55 hours per week at low wage jobs and still just barely getting the bills paid, all while pursuing a graduate degree part-time at the UW.

For all of fall quarter, this was the reality for third-year graduate student Ben Peterson.
