Mothers claim D.C. police ‘tortured’ inmates

The mothers of six Washington, D.C. inmates called on city officials last week to investigate claims of torture at the District’s main prison facility. Based on accounts they had received from their sons, other inmates and corrections officers, the women testified before a hearing by the city council’s judiciary committee on Oct. 24 that their […]

One-man band: Musician Keller Williams provides his own back-up tunes

Keller Williams’ extraordinary ability to entertain a crowd on his own developed from the simple desire to entertain himself. This one-man band uses a pedal-operated recording device to record a section of music, then sets it on a loop, allowing him to play over it, expanding the sound with layer upon layer of intertwining rhythm […]

Organization encourages students to seek government jobs

Call to Serve, an organization that encourages students to pursue careers in the federal government, kicked off an initiative at GW last week in an effort to revamp the way federal jobs are marketed to college students. GW is one of six pilot schools selected to test the organization’s new publicity venture. Caroline Chang, program […]

Just like mom makes: comfort food in the District

Colonials Weekend has come and gone. That pot of homemade chicken noodle soup that mom left in your refrigerator sits empty, growing some sort of funky residue with the rest of your dirty dishes in the sink. Yet, as the weather grows chilly, you yearn for a taste of something warm and familiar. What’s a […]

Team has strong finish

Perfect. Well, almost. The GW golf team finished out their storybook fall 2005 season, arguably their best since the 1940s, in perfect fashion. The Colonials carded a 576 to finish tied for second Monday in the Old Dominion University Seascape Invitational in Kitty Hawk, N.C. “We were very happy,” coach Scott Allen said in a […]

Eric Zapel: Quigley’s: a space for creativity, not Chipotle

Their burritos are delicious, don’t get me wrong, and those handy instructions printed on your napkin certainly make the whole process of eating something as wide as your neck much less painful. However, I have to say I am very opposed to the idea of Chipotle opening their newest location in Quigley’s pharmacy. Now, I’m […]

Bar Belle: The Austin Grill

The 9:30 Club is not the only place to see live music in the D.C. area. And the overt rudeness of the staff last time I was there has prompted a whole new goal in my Bar Belle adventures: it’s time to start finding bars with good booze, small covers and great tunes. Fortunately for […]

Student groups complain of perceived lack of SA funds

Disagreement among the Student Association Senate Finance Committee and student organizations has deepened within the last week as an increasing number of organization leaders said they have been denied funding from the SA. About 15 representatives from student organizations attended Tuesday night’s Senate meeting in the Marvin Center to deplore the lack of funding they’ve […]

Sean Scully: Artist lays another brick in the wall

If you are claustrophobic, beware: I would not recommend going to the Phillips Collection’s new exhibit “Sean Scully: Wall of Light.” The first half of the exhibition, comprised of Scully’s early abstract paintings, is quite nice to look at but the second half – the actual “Wall of Light” series – is like walking through […]
