Dukakis addresses NUCD and midterm election results

Nov 20, 2014

On the night of Nov. 18, a former governor walked through the doors of West Village. He entered a room full of like-minded, politically engaged individuals. Professor and former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis had one thing this year that he doesn’t always at his yearly address to Northeastern University College Democrats (NUCD), a cast from a recent medical problem. Once he finished explaining the minor health issue that forced him to limp into the room, Dukakis began to talk politics.

Cafe de Paris, Cooking Class

Column: Mastering the art of the kitchen

There was an orchestra in my kitchen the other night. To the fury of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, I sliced and diced onions like I had something against them. Minced prosciutto and ground beef sizzled over flames, my cheeks flushed and my belly growled in anticipation of the reward. Outside, unforgiving wind chills made their way into insulated coats. Inside, the oven and radiator were the most trusted companions. I splashed dry red wine into the pan and it hissed as it bathed the meat. Tomato paste dribbled out of a glass jar, painting the sauce a vibrant red. These are the sights and sounds treasured most to a cook. But the most rewarding? An empty plate with the fork clanging down on it from blissful satiation.

Dodgeball

Event Calendar: Nov. 20–26

Entry of the Week: Sunday, Nov. 23

Although the Ebola scare in the US has mostly calmed down, you can still help raise money to aid countries that are not so lucky. Northeastern’s Institute on Urban Health Research and Practice will host Dodge Ebola, a fundraising dodgeball tournament with proceeds benefitting Doctors without Borders. Teams consisting of three to five Northeastern students, faculty or staff can sign up with a minimum donation of $5. Both the team that wins the tournament and the team with the most spirit will win a prize. If you don’t want to play, you can still come watch and support the cause, with a suggested donation of $5. All participants and spectators must wear athletic attire. Marino Center, Court 2; 2:30–4:30 p.m.; suggested donation of $5.
