Ideas to spice up any breakfast

(01/03/19 6:33pm)

As the holiday season has gone on, there is one thing I’ve noticed — how much breakfast I’ve been eating. Is it just me or do breakfasts get A LOT bigger during the holidays? I’m not sure why this happens — whether it’s the colder weather or the overload of family time –– but breakfast becomes yet another opportunity to celebrate. From decadent cinnamon rolls to cheesy egg casseroles, this year’s holiday has really opened my eyes to the morning meal’s potential. 

HOPKINS: Bring a grocery store to the Corner

(01/03/19 5:08am)

We all mourned the loss of our beloved Qdoba when it closed down last year. There has been a lot of talk about what will replace it —  rumors include a Chipotle, an extension of 1515 or, I assume somewhat jokingly, another Starbucks. But rather than install another restaurant in an area boasting an abundance of them, why not attract an establishment that is sorely missed on the Corner and would serve genuine utility for members of the community? As a popular hub of activity for students and residents alike, the Corner needs a grocery store.

WARTEL: Amazon is bad for democracy

(01/03/19 9:30pm)

After a debasing competition of states and municipalities seeking Amazon’s next headquarters it was announced that the winners of HQ2 would be New York and Northern Virginia’s own Crystal City. Leaders of Virginia’s public institutions tripped over themselves to praise the decision that could land the area 25,000 new jobs. At face value, bringing in Amazon is a remarkable achievement, “a testament to everything the commonwealth has to offer,” according to University President Jim Ryan. But when the mask is off, it becomes clear that Amazon coming to Crystal City is a horrible outcome of an even worse process that highlights the broken nature of our economy and democracy.

(12/24/18 8:42pm)

North Korea must pay over $500 million in damages to the family of the late University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier, a federal judge ruled Monday. Warmbier died following 17 months of imprisonment in the country, which led his parents to file a lawsuit in April against the rogue nation for the “hostage taking, illegal detention, torture and killing” of their son.

MCKELVEY: We need to talk about Aramark when addressing living wages

(12/31/18 2:04am)

Last month, I wrote a column about the ambiguity surrounding President Jim Ryan’s plans to reform living wage policies at the University for both contracted and non-contracted workers. Since then, The Cavalier Daily interviewed Ryan about the living wage issue for contracted workers, but Ryan put forth no discernible plan to increase wages or support for doing so. Despite criticism surrounding Ryan’s inaction regarding this issue, he has maintained that the subject needs more research regarding its legal and financial feasibility. In fact, when Cavalier Daily editors asked him if he would hypothetically support higher wages for contracted employees in the absence of legal barriers, Ryan still offered no clear opinion about such a policy.

U.Va. Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights responds to student reports calling for institutional change

(12/21/18 5:51pm)

The Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights released a response last month outlining new goals meant to increase access and representation among minority groups at the University. The statement, dated Nov. 15, was released largely as a response to a report released by the Asian Leaders Council and a proposal put forth by the Latinx Student Alliance in October which called for increased support, resources and representation for Asian/Asian Pacific American students and Latinx students respectively.

My big fat Confederate ghost roommate

(01/07/19 6:38pm)

At first I didn’t really notice anything weird about my roommate, Rob. Sure, he was a couple hundred years old and — well, a ghost — but I figured hey, this is college. Things are different here. But pretty soon, he became almost unbearable to live with. When I moved into the oldest dorm on campus, I knew I wasn’t going to get the most modern furnishings, but I didn’t expect that to apply to the person I would be sharing a room with. It was when I discovered that my hall had actually been built on an ancient Confederate graveyard that I started to notice something fishy going on. 

Soraya Chemaly wants you to get angry

(12/27/18 1:44pm)

Soraya Chemaly is sick of the women around her being exhausted. Chemaly began writing about and researching women’s rights full-time 10 years ago, when she would write two to three articles a week about gender and sexualized violence and their roles in inequality. She has been published in The Atlantic, The Nation and Time — just to name a few. Chemaly is now the director of the Women’s Media Center and continues to do research on and write about women’s issues. In her book “Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women’s Anger,” which came out Sept. 11., Chemaly expounds on how women’s repressed rage creates harmful tendencies. Chemaly came to Charlottesville Dec. 5 to talk about her new book.

Rufus Wainwright ‘poses’ at the Paramount

(12/27/18 1:42pm)

In his 20 years as a recording artist, Rufus Wainwright has moved from pop singer-songwriter to operatist, critic of former President George W. Bush to critic of President Donald Trump and enfant terrible to self-proclaimed “tyrant.” Six years since the release of his last studio album as a singer-songwriter, “Out of the Game,” Wainwright finds himself at a transitional moment in his career, preparing for his next studio album following the premiere of his second opera, “Hadrian.” Amid these other projects, Wainwright, who has said he must tour to sustain himself financially, has embarked on a series of shows to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his 1998 debut.
