I found Dr. Remick’s name in a Little School folder. What was it doing there? It turns out that at the same time Dr. Remick was an affirmative action officer and attended that Women’s Studies meeting, she was the parent of a Little School pupil when it was in the Bellevue facility.
Today we mourn the passing of Heather Hughes, a young and vibrant woman, whose life came to an end early Wednesday morning, due to late-stage lung cancer one day before she would have turned 45. She is survived by her son, her fiancee, and her family.
José Amador talks with David Nixon, of the band “Awesome”, The Half Brothers and philosophy teacher at the University of Washington’s Bothell campus, about Bladfold, Nixon latest cinematic effort. The interview includes images and links to music from the film, as well as the movie The Shelf, Nixon’s animated film debut.
It’s 1993. Unless you are locked regularly in the basements of university computer science departments, you have never heard of the World Wide Web. If you have a computer at all, your computer runs at a maximum of 100 mHz and may have 4MB of memory, unless you can spare an extra thousand dollars in which case you may have 8MB–if your computer can actually accept it, since upgrades are impossible in many models.

Being an artist requires massive amounts of self-imposed dirty work alternating with almost palpable tedium. This is for all those who do the dirty jobs.
The YWCA Inspire Luncheons have been happening for over 20 years now, but if you’ve never been to one, we highly recommend it. From the client stories to the guest speaker to the amazing energy in the room, you will be inspired.
