Last month, second-year students at the UNLV School of Architecture gathered to present a beguiling exhibit of their work for the semester. Demonstrative Architecture: Apotheosis of the Unfamiliar is not an exhibit of buildings with a program, but something far more ethereal. Students explored a variety of forms and ideas in wood, cardboard, and glycerine. They then tried to translate these forms into structures that suggested not a building program but an emotional state.

Skeptics could be excused for wondering if UNLV and UNR made Carnegie’s 2018 list of universities with “very high research activity,” commonly known as “R1” status, by a fluke. The last time the list came out, in 2015, it included 115 schools. This year’s list, with Nevada’s two big public universities, had 130. And whereas the list was published every five years from 2000 through 2015, the latest one came out in December 2018, shortening the wait to three years. Is Carnegie playing the soccer coach who gives every kid a trophy for simply showing up? What does “R1” mean — not just to UNLV and UNR, but also to students, parents, and taxpayers?

Forty-two centuries ago, the flourishing Akkadian Empire—spread across modern-day Iraq, Turkey, and Syria—suddenly disappeared. Paleoclimatologists and other geoscientists now have one possible explanation for why. Using precisely age dated chemical measurements from a stalagmite collected in a cave in Iran, researchers found an abrupt uptick in dust at that point in history. This heightened dust activity, which persisted for 300 years, might have made for uncomfortable living conditions and difficulties in farming, the researchers suggest.

By filing for bankruptcy, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. pressed a giant “pause” button Tuesday on thousands of claims for as much as $30 billion in damages from Northern California wildfires. The claims will be rerouted from local courts to a federal bankruptcy court in San Francisco, where the victims will stand in line with other creditors, wait a year or longer, and, if the company’s plan is approved, probably wind up with less than they lost.

Intersectionality in feminism matters. Or, as author, activist and feminist Audre Lorde put it, “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives.”
