Study A-blog: Pub night's identity crisis

BY LINDSEY SCULLEN

My 63rd hour in the United Kingdom of Great Britain was spent pubbing at the Turf Tavern in Oxford. Having just finished dinner, my newfound colleagues and I, all summer school students at St. Peter’s College of Oxford University, were out looking to get sloshed. Just kidding, though the beer was flowing.

Every time I go back home to Seattle, I always look out across Lake Washington and see construction cranes out in the distance. Construction on the Evergreen Point Bridge, which connects the eastside suburbs to downtown Seattle, is well underway. However, it has taken much longer than expected.

Blogging Blue: Operation defending Israel

BY NURLAN ORUIJLU

I have always averted representing/defending/supporting either side in this conflict for various reasons. I genuinely do not believe that someone living outside the conflict zone and not experiencing the realities of war in Israel’s southern territories or in Gaza Strip can make a prudent judgment about the situation.

I hope you’re noticing a similar pattern that I am. When you’ve made other recipes with similar ingredients, new recipes become easier.

The Feminine Critique: The truth about Tinder

BY MAURA LEVINE

Just acknowledging that we still have a problem is half the battle on the road to (sexism) recovery.

Blogging Blue: American Exceptionalism 2.0

BY NURLAN ORUJLU

I don’t think we could have successfully reached the current age of civilization without the existence of “American exceptionalism.”

Policy Matters: Don't do stupid s***

BY PAUL SHERMAN

The New York Times/2014

At this point in time, it is hard to tell what Obama’s foreign policy legacy will hold and what the consequences of his policies will be. For now, this administration is just being realistic and adjusting to the times, which is something America needs to do sooner rather than later.

Blogging Blue: Another "mission" to accomplish?

BY NURLAN ORUJLU

So instead of reprimanding Obama and pressing him to take hasty steps to solve the crisis, Cheney needs to take a quick look back at the history and think about the mistakes he has made, such as, selling the Iraq War as a part of the Global War on Terror.

Enviroblog: Let permaculture grow amidst public education

BY LINDSEY SCULLEN

Lindsey Scullen/Daily

Allowing these new ideas to enter would mean both allowing kids to explore, find and understand their unique abilities (species #1) and allowing them to see themselves in the context of the greater system, to see the value in being a part of a diverse, cooperative network (species #2).

Feminine Critique: Perpetual works in progress

BY MELISSA SCHOLKE

With every compliment deflected or challenge avoided, we — as women — trick ourselves into believing we are perpetual works in progress. We accept the lies. Our fear of failure is so paralyzing we surrender before we even start.

Policy Matters: Those who compromise

BY PAUL SHERMAN

I know this has been going on for some time, but it needs to be stopped now. Right now, we need our leaders back. The ones that are willing to compromise that is.

Social Disorder: The dead end for nationalism

BY NURLAN ORUJLU

Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial/Wikipedia

Nationalism will not prevail because it’s senseless to be proud of something that isn’t an accomplishment, but has been randomly assigned to you.
