As expected, Rainbow Kitten Surprise put on an amazing show at The Sylvee. Fans waited in a line that stretched around the building, braving the cold to see the band’s first show in Madison since 2019, when they previously performed at the venue.
Host, Tyler Katzenberger and Writer, Joyce Riphagen discuss her article for the Action Project Drug Issue, “Vikings might have gone berserk with magic mushrooms, historians say”. They discuss theories behind viking berserkers, a common theory being that they would take toxic mushrooms, and other drug use from humans and animals alike throughout history.
It’s the end of another year and time to talk about what art we’re taking with us. The Cardinal staff was surveyed on their favorites of the year and some even shared their thoughts. Here’s what we had to say.
Alternative indie-rock band Rainbow Kitten Surprise will return to Madison for the first time since 2019, performing a sold out show at the Sylvee on Sunday.
Humans have likely been using substances since before we were truly humans — alcohol metabolism appeared in nonhuman primates up to 21 million years ago, and plenty of other animals, from dolphins to moose, are known to partake in what we may call “drugs.” Drug use is a part of life for many species and has been for a long time.
It seems unlikely that anything would grow early in the Wisconsin spring, when the temperature is just as likely to be 20 degrees as it is 70. But if there's water, sunlight and access to nutrients … life finds a way.
In my freshman year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison I, with many other STEM students, struggled through the CHEM 103/104 sequence (if you took 109, I don’t want to hear it). I spent hours and hours balancing equations, calculating pH, free energy and other things that I’ve already forgotten. Lecture, homework, exams, discussion… I dreaded almost every aspect of chemistry, but none so much as lab.
In characteristic Wisconsin fashion, spring has sprung, and unsprung, and resprung, and then unsprung again and then re-resprung. Warmer weather is around the corner, and the snow has given way to not-so-gentle rain. The conditions are ideal…and now they are here.
Print and Resist Zinefest will take place on April 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Central branch of the Madison Public Library. The event is free to attend and open to all, though masks are required and some viewer discretion is advised. In true DIY fashion, creators will not be censored.
It seems not a single undergraduate discussion of invasive species can pass without some philosophically-inclined baby biologist pondering aloud, “You know… maybe humans are the invasive species.”
Sex is great. STDs, however … not so much. From itching and scratching to bumps and boils (oh my!) to lifelong illness, sexually transmitted infections can have a host of negative consequences. We don’t want to scare you — like we said, sex is great. We want you to be having great sex (if you want to, obvi), and the first step to that is safety.
It’s been nearly two years since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, and many of us are – understandably – tired of it. Month after month of restrictions, limitations and the various impacts of COVID have left people exhausted, and often apathetic.
The pandemic has dragged on for nearly two years now, and we’ve seen a number of troubling developments, the most recent of which is the detection of a new variant of Sars-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID. Omicron has been designated as a "variant of concern" by the World Health Organization, and the first case in the United States was confirmed on Wednesday.
“The way of the Three Sisters reminds me of one of the basic teachings of our people. The most important thing each of us can know is our unique gift and how to use it in the world. Individuality is cherished and nurtured, because, in order for the whole to flourish, each of us has to be strong in who we are and carry our gifts with conviction, so they can be shared with others.”
Eric Barone, who uses the online alias ConcernedApe, announced last week that he is in the process of developing a new game, titled “ConcernedApe’s Haunted Chocolatier,” to the delight of cozy gamers everywhere.
Police were seen chasing a white sedan around the downtown and campus areas of Madison Tuesday.
Unless you are a sentient worm reading the papers (in which case, please contact us for an interview), you have some bones. A whole skeleton’s worth, hopefully. At first glance, there’s a substantial difference between human skeletons and other skeletons — birds and bats have wings; stingrays have a terrifying bone fan. However, despite gross morphological differences, the basis of all vertebrate skeletons is actually the same.
For the typical college student, the flu is not a huge concern. Many of us haven’t had the flu in a long time, and don’t quite remember just how miserable it can be; symptoms of the flu include fatigue, weakness, muscle aches, chills and much more.
As the days get colder, Ava Padilla is tucking her farm in for the winter. Padilla is one of two farm directors at F.H. King, a student-run organization that focuses on providing an experimental space for students to engage with sustainable agriculture and reconnect with foodways.
If you’ve been looking at the foliage on your way to class this past week, you’ll have noticed a change in the trees around campus. The various greens are starting to fade, replaced by an array of reds, oranges and yellow. But how do the leaves know when to begin changing?
