The take: Homelessness — The logic behind giving homes to the homeless

When I was in high school, I went on a service trip to Washington, D.C. While there, we participated in a program where we went out onto the street and gave socks to people who were homeless.

For me, an upper-middle-class kid who grew up in the suburbs, it was an eye-opening experience.

UW mechanical engineers protect sea life from marine construction

A sharp sound pulses through the water, emitting pressure waves like a mini explosion. Whale and seal ears are damaged, fish flip upside down, and drown as their swim bladders, or inner-balancing systems, pop like balloons. The sound happens again and again.
