Army's SHARP program battles sexual assault in the military

Last week, Latosha Curry sent out an email through change.org urging readers to sign a petition. Curry, who has been in the Army for 12 years and hoping to become a recruiter, was sexually assaulted while serving in Korea. Like many victims, she never reported it. "I was too afraid of

Museum seeks servicemember tattoo stories for upcoming exhibit

Have you ever thought of a tattoo as a story? Most of us realize that tattoos are art, but they are also symbols with meaning. Every tattoo, from the simplest "Mom" or anchor to the most intricate 3D design - is selected for a reason. Tattoos can reflect our religion

You would never know it from looking at her, but Susan Moore used to be out of shape. After getting married nearly 20 years ago, she went on birth control that caused her to gain weight. She stopped the medicine, but ended up pregnant. Twice. "I was heavy for several years,"

Setting aside any of the other qualities that I'll be billboarding about Nasalrod, the one thing that you need to know is that they're a lot of goddamn fun. The punk rock Portland foursome create impossibly energetic music that doesn't so much pummel as it grabs you by the shoulders

Saturday, Feb. 28: The Classical

San Francisco duet the Classical make concise descriptions quite a task. The easiest way to sum them up is to call them baroque art-rock, though that doesn't quite cut it. "Shovel & Bevel" combines clinically mesmerizing drums with odd phrases repeated over and over with darkly expressive strings to create

Thursday, March 5: There Is No Mountain

Portland's There Is No Mountain is a husband-and-wife duo that seems to set itself up to be just another cutesy, folk-pop duo before sharply and forcefully shifting gears into restlessly experimental trajectory. Kali Giaritta and Matt Harmon bring effortlessly lovely harmonies to the table. Musically, though, their adventurousness is evident. Read

Through March 1: "Angels In America, Part 2: Perestroika"

I spent last week in the skin of a monster. I'm playing Roy Cohn, the very real attorney who guided the knife point of Sen. Joseph McCarthy's Red Scare, then adamantly denied his own homosexuality even as he was dying of AIDS. He's a character in Tony

The soulful progression of There Is No Mountain

My first time listening to the Dirty Projectors was a bewildering and dizzyingly delightful experience. David Longstreth was clearly a madman, constantly stretching his vocals beyond the boundaries of good taste and engaging in musicianship that seemed less like a good time and more like self-flagellation. The Dirty Projectors were

2nd Brigade begins construction of its memorial at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

A single, light blue handled shovel stuck into the ground caught my eye. The color was apt; light blue is the color of the infantry, the Army's oldest branch. As to shovel, its purpose was to turn a piece of earth marking a sacred place for the construction of a memorial honoring

Wednesday, Feb. 25: Novo Fogo "Bars on Fire"

If you were drinking a cocktail with the floral notes of a rainforest, the aroma of banana and lime flowers, the earthiness of sweet red peppers and the saltiness of oysters, you'd be drinking cachaca (pronounced ka-SHA-sa), a Brazilian spirit distilled from sugarcane juice. Suffice it to say that, if

We've all seen the footage: President John F. Kennedy in the gleaming dark blue limousine, smiling and waving at the crowd, and then the shot rings out in Dealey Plaza, and everything in a relatively mundane presidential moment has become a piece of history. Author and journalist Dean R. Owen

Sunday, March 1: Sword and Laser

Reading science-fiction books is not generally thought of as a "social activity" on par with, say paint-balling or watching NASCAR. This could be due at least in part to the cruel, negative social stereotypes surrounding sci-fi, driving its readers into the literary closet. Everyone could be reading science fiction, and
