After watching the most recent “Little Women” movie, I got to thinking about what the story really means to me. I was first exposed to this story at age four or five when I was bored at my grandma’s and begging for some entertainment. She had ingeniously pulled out the 1949 version, featuring classic actresses like June Allyson and Elizabeth Taylor, and my sisters and I fell in love.
As University students get into the swing of the semester, many of us are attempting to fulfill our New Year’s resolutions. One of the most common of these resolutions is getting in shape, which in turn leads to increased gym attendance in the United States during the month of January. However, for those of us who attempt to make good on this resolution and decide to drive from our homes to the gym, a rude awakening awaits in the form of mandatory parking fees at the University’s gym facilities.
2019 was a mess! Good thing it’s a new year — and what’s better for a new year than new music? Here are some of the projects to look forward to in 2020, and some old faithful tunes while you wait.
It seems as though America knows everything about Ariana Grande, from her PTSD after a terrorist attack at a 2017 Manchester show to her highly publicized breakup with comedian Pete Davidson. The one thing the public has yet to figure out? Her race.
Pasta is — besides cereal and eggs — one of the most accessible meals for a novice chef. There is little to no skill involved in the process, and it is nearly impossible to make all of those delicious carbs taste bad. However, there is a huge difference between average college-student pasta — just butter and noodles — and truly delicious pasta. This recipe is just as easy to make as average pasta, but the flavors epitomize home-cooked vegetarian pasta at its best. Furthermore, the ingredients are affordable and last for ages because fresh produce is not required.

Virginia could not slow down Virginia Tech in the first meeting between the two rivals this season on Sunday. The Cavaliers (7-11, 2-5 ACC) and Hokies (13-4, 3-3 ACC) traded blows for the entirety of the game before the Hokies were able to shut out the Cavaliers, winning the game on a 14-6 run in the last five minutes of the game.
Virginia squash had a strong week of victories, defeating two top ranked opponents in Brown and Cornell, while continuing its undefeated streak at home.
Earlier in January, Virginia House Delegate Sally Hudson, D-Charlottesville, introduced a bill that would remove salary limits for Charlottesville politicians, namely city council members and school board officials. This would effectively bypass limitations instantiated by Virginia state code, which sets salary caps for municipalities proportional to their total population. Currently, maximum annual pay is capped at $18,000 for Charlottesville councilors and $20,000 for the mayor, which Hudson claims is not enough “to raise a family.” While this is not a sentiment I would necessarily disagree with, I think any amendment to political salary limits should be done much more tactfully, with checks still in place. The last thing we want in our representative democracy is for representatives to have unconditional control over how much they’re earning — a breeding ground for corruption and complacency.
The Virginia men and women’s track and field teams travelled to Blacksburg, Va. this weekend to run in the Virginia Tech Invitational — the first meet of the 2020 season. The men’s team had five athletes take the podium and the women’s team had three over the two-day meet.
The spring semester is upon us, and I am sure that I am not alone in saying that choosing a major, a summer internship and a career has become a daily mental battleground for me. Keeping up with application deadlines, narrowing down my actual interests and career aspirations and staying on top of current obligations like my classwork and extracurriculars is all a bit overwhelming. This is why I always treasure every second of winter break.
When the Virginia men’s basketball team won the National Championship last April, every Cavalier player, coach, fan and alumnus was able to take a deep sigh of relief. After years of letdown and disappointment, the trophy was finally on its way to Charlottesville.
The University Health System’s data science team recently advanced to the next stage of a nationwide competition to apply artificial intelligence to hospital readmissions, a persistent and costly issue. Sponsored by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the inaugural Artificial Intelligence Health Outcomes Challenge initially received hundreds of applications. CMS chose only 25 submissions, the University’s among them, to execute their proposed strategies.
The Virginia swimming and diving teams split their dual meet against Virginia Tech with the No. 3 women’s team dominating the Hokies 186-111 and the No. 15 men’s team narrowly falling to No. 24 Virginia Tech by a score of 158-141.

With a rich and diverse culture, India is home to individuals who celebrate a wide range of traditions and religious events. As we approach the end of January, many people in India partake in a myriad of festivities to honor the arrival of the harvest season — celebrations which vary based on the region in India they take place.
Only two days after The Cavalier Daily published that CollegeNet had ranked the University within the bottom 15 percent of American colleges and universities for social mobility, President Jim Ryan unveiled his “Inclusive Excellence” framework as a part of his 2030 plan. IE programs are not unique to the University — they have been integrated into many post-secondary education programs across the country since 2005. Although the program is intended “to facilitate collaboration between the Division for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and other offices and organizations across the University,” it does not seem to propose any particular means of pursuing this goal or what kinds of diversity will be prioritized.
