Protest activity today at UC Santa Cruz has had the campus inaccessible to vehicular traffic. KZSC will continue to provide updates regarding today’s protests and campus access throughout the day and evening including a complete recap of today’s protests during the “On What Grounds” program, beginning at 7 PM on KZSC.

Gregory Laughlin, a professor at our very own university, has recently been working with the famous Philip Glass in a project called “The Music of the Spheres.” Laughlin is a professor of astronomy and astrophysics whose research delves into orbital dynamics and the evolution of planetary systems. Glass is one of the most influential composers of the past half-century. Though sometimes called a “minimalist,” Glass describes his compositions as “music with repetitive structures.” Sound tasty? The two are working together to “sonify” planetary movements. You can find out much more (including everything that I have no idea about but would like to tell you) this Thursday in an interview with Laughlin, conducted by one of our talented news team members.

The University of California (UC) Regents will vote Nov. 18 on whether or not to increase undergraduate educational fees by a total of 32 percent, or approximately $2,500, starting next school year. By raising fees, regents and the University Office of the President (UCOP) plan to make up for a loss of state funds.
For UC Santa Cruz students, this partly means paying more to support other UC institutions.

Next week on On What Grounds (Thursday from 7-8pm), we’ll talk about religion, particularly issues and contradictions found within the bible. While browsing the internet I came across this article by Wired titled More ‘Evidence’ of Intelligent Design Shot Down by Science
