FERGUSON: Vote Denver Riggleman

(10/12/18 12:12am)

With election day a month away, voters across Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District will soon need to decide which candidate they will support to represent them in the House of Representatives — if they have not done so already. Republican Denver Riggleman — an Air Force veteran and distillery owner— and Democrat Leslie Cockburn — an investigative journalist — are the nominees to fill current representative Tom Garrett’s (R-Va.) seat after he announced he would not seek re-election. Between the two, however, Riggleman embodies the pragmatism and leadership needed to best serve the University community, Charlottesville residents and the Fifth District as a whole. 

There’s a social responsibility that comes with a degree from U.Va.

Last week, I was sitting in my American Studies fourth-year seminar listening to a discussion on the controversial presentation of history at Monticello. As the class began to understand some of the more serious implications of the way information was being preserved at that site, I looked around the table to see wide eyes of shock and outrage. It was right then that, in an aside, my professor broke the tension by saying, “I thought I was going to be designing gardens and then I got involved in all this stuff.”  

Easy, healthy options for the college student looking to step up their snack game

(10/10/18 9:12pm)

Admit it — for some people, it is hard to get up a few minutes early to make yourself breakfast. Or sometimes, that after-class hunger pang strikes, and there is nothing to grab. Sticking to snacks filled with nutrients and sourced by real, minimal ingredients is step one in the process to finding what your “healthy” means. And no, this does not mean you have to grab the lowest calorie option either, it means sticking to genuine sources and sustenance.

PVCC debate highlights areas of disagreement, common ground between Cockburn and Riggleman

(10/10/18 6:32pm)

Fifth Congressional District candidates, Democrat Leslie Cockburn and Republican Denver Riggleman, squared off Monday evening at Piedmont Virginia Community College for their first televised debate. The two candidates spoke on issues such as government spending, climate change and social justice. 

LAWSON: Save Alderman Library stacks

(10/11/18 9:42pm)

Sitting prominently in the northwest corner of Central Grounds — directly adjacent to Jefferson’s academical village — Alderman Library serves as a reminder of the University’s distinguished historical status. In contrast to the early 1980s architecture of Clemons Library, Alderman’s classic aesthetic style dating back to 1938 has withstood the test of time. Even more worth preserving than the building’s traditional facade, however, are the centuries of accumulated print material that lay inside. 

Guatemalan immigrant taking sanctuary in Charlottesville church to avoid deportation

(10/09/18 8:08pm)

A 44-year-old indigenous woman born in Guatemala — currently residing in the U.S. without immigration papers — is seeking asylum in a Charlottesville-area methodist church, she announced at a press conference Monday afternoon. This is one of the first publicized cases of a person seeking refuge in a Charlottesville church from immigration enforcement under President Donald Trump, whose administration has taken a hardline stance for deporting undocumented immigrants.

SIEGEL: The shortcomings of U.Va.’s parental leave system

(10/11/18 12:40am)

In early September of this year, U.Va. President Jim Ryan publicized the extension of paid parental leave to all eligible staff — salaried, full time academic employees — of the University and the University’s Health System. The new policy is designed to align with the executive order Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam delivered, which provides eight weeks of paid parental leave to state employees, expanding the benefits beyond just those who birthed the child. 

I tried making the Momofuku Milk Bar Birthday Cake

(10/10/18 9:13pm)

The Milk Bar Birthday Cake is an icon — or at least that’s how my Instagram feed makes it seem. Pictures of the cake can be found all over social media, and its popularity is reflected by the crowds of people found in Milk Bar stores all over New York City and the fact that they just started shipping their bakes nationwide. If you’ve never heard of Milk Bar or even this cute little cake, then please, before reading any further, educate yourself and Google the heck out of this place. If — like me — your computer search history consists entirely of trendy foods, then you probably know exactly what I’m talking about.
