New bwogger Alexandra Tsorvas attended a medical school training event that discussed the unequal power dynamics inherent in doctor-patient relationships and how to mitigate them.
New Staff Writer Anna Eggers attended a book talk by Nicole Fleetwood about her new book Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration sponsored by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
The sun has set on a beautiful, 70 degree day here in New York. Bwog had a lovely time remembering how wonderful it is here (and below 96th Street!) during the first few days of spring. We k-velled like k-razy when we spotted this yellow flower and sign poking out of an open window on […]
It’s the first real cold snap of winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to wilt! Bwog has a whole list of reasons to embrace the freeze. To wit: the de-thawing feeling in your extremities when you get back inside the bulky clothes that obscure all the weight you’ll gain over the holidays the reduction […]
Tomorrow! Flying kites! EarthCo is providing plastic bags and pre-made plastic bag kites for a Mary Poppins session on Low Plaza from noon to 4:00 pm, where they’ll probably also try to teach you something about wind power. The group is trying again to persuade Columbia buy alternative energy, which didn’t go so well last […]
As per usual, a hundred or so bikes gathered last night in Union Square for Critical Mass, the solidaristic bike ride that takes over streets in cities all over the country once a month. This time, though, at least half of the riders seemed only vaguely…human. A plunger, a Joker, a husky dog, and all […]
You may have tests and essays as far as the eye can see…but then again, it’s supposed to be unbelievably gorgeous this weekend. Decamp yourself from Butler and discover joy again. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I Kiffe NY: French Urban Cultures Festival Various times and locations through Oct. 28th Go be thuggin’, French-style. More […]
The young at heart (and the fearless of motion-sickness) take note: There are currently two moon-bounces—one features two basketball hoops and basketballs for competitive gamesmanship—stationed on Low. (There is also a dunking tank for the masochistic.) The Anti-Iraq War Demonstration Bell is still ringing strong, though its sounds are slightly muffled by the screams of […]
Following the release of a joint statement on the agreed-upon academic concessions–posted after the jump, in all its wonky glory–the four remaining hunger strikers will start weaning themselves off not eating after a vigil and press conference, same time same place (9PM at the sundial). Anything happen on Manhattanville? Nope. The story on that will […]
In its addled state, Bwog forgot that today was Earth Day, until Google reminded us (if you missed it, the logo is a half-submerged iceberg). Fortunately, lots of other people were out celebrating, taking advantage of opportunities that we wish we had brought to your attention. Feeling bad, we’d like to at least symbolically recognize […]
Calling all wannabe Bhangra members: it’s Hangama, the Organization of Pakistani Students’ annual Mock Wedding, in which a “groom” from NYU takes away his Columbian “bride”–which means more colorful outfits and South Asian dancing than you’ll see this side of the subcontinent (we exaggerate, but really). Even if it weren’t the perfect day, OPS knew […]
