What can i do to make my wife happy again
For thousands of years, the debate has raged on: cats vs. dogs. Which is supreme? Two Daily Wildcat columnists attempt to end the argument once and for all. Doggo for the win You pull up into the driveway after a long day of lectures. There sits your happy-faced floofer friend in the window, tail going crazy. The whimpering excitement gets louder as you approach the door. “OMG ITS YOU! FINALLY YOU’RE HOME,” says doggo, not with actual words, but with uncontrollable prancing that prevents getting a pet in. Heavy breathing, whimpers continue, maybe doggo flashes a toothy smile that is as terrifying as it is endearing. It is the same, consistent, reliable abundance of enthusiasm you are greeted with every time you walk through that door, regardless if you’ve been out for five years or five minutes. Just seeing your smiling face, no matter how ugly it may be, makes doggo happy. Nobody, not even your own mother, is ever that happy to see you. Ever.

Richard Wilbur, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and translator who intrigued and delighted generations of readers and theatergoers through his rhyming editions of Moliere and his own verse on memory, writing and nature, died. He was 96. Wilbur died Saturday night in Belmont, Massachusetts, with his family by his side, according to friend and fellow poet, Dana Gioia.

While teaching her class, Pouye Khoshkoo, a graduate assistant teaching Persian at the UA was asked, “What do Iranian girls look like?” Khoshkoo used the class time to look up photos and describe to students first-hand what she knew. They asked her specifically, “are they under the veil, covered, burqa?” Khoshkoo responded, “I’m saying no, it’s like what you see here and then we have to Google it.” Khoshkoo showed them what she described as fashionable, nice and colorful styles and some of the class still didn’t believe. “Then you have to go show it on two different sources and make them believe that people are not different around the world,” she said. When she was younger, Khoshkoo said she had the energy to answer the student’s similar questions about the Middle East to try and eliminate any misconceptions that they have. Today, those same questions wear on her. “When I was younger, I … [Read more...] about Definitions of humanity: Pouye Khoshkoo describes life after Trump’s immigration ban
