‘Tripledemic’ of respiratory viruses burdens Rhode Island health care system - The Brown Daily Herald

Rhode Island has struggled with increasing hospitalizations for respiratory illnesses including influenza, COVID-19 and Respiratory Syncytial Virus.

Respiratory viruses influenza and COVID-19 are well known, but Respiratory Syncytial Virus is less discussed. Elevated cases of RSV are adding burden to hospitals in the state already grappling with COVID-19 and the flu, creating what some have called a “tripledemic.”

‘Bones and All’ tells bland love story with flashy exterior - The Brown Daily Herald

REVIEW | “Bones and All” is a romance between two cannibals played by Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet. Despite its seemingly exciting setup, the movie tells a bland love story between two leads with minimal chemistry.

Two lovers, both on the fringe of society, chart out a journey through America’s backroads searching for normalcy in a world that rejects them. The story sounds cute, right? Think again. The bond these lovers share is not one that would be Hallmark-approved, because their status as societal outcas...

Students redecorate List Art stairwell with paintings of toilet bowls, politicians - The Brown Daily Herald

After 15 years of student painting contributions to the List Art Building stairwell, exhibitions manager Daniel Stupar made the decision to paint the walls white to encourage students to add new artwork. Now, students are getting creative redecorating the walls with painting subjects ranging from Blueno and flowers to inspirational messages and splashes of color.

Anyone who has walked up the staircases of Brown’s List Art Building in the past decade might expect to find the walls covered in graffiti and paintings by students.

University adds caste provision to nondiscrimination policy - The Brown Daily Herald

In a recent press release, the University announced that caste will be added to its nondiscrimination policy.

Brown students and staff discussed Brown’s reputation for being a q***r institution and the places and ways they’ve been able to build q***r community on campus.

Brown hosted the Midyear Completion Celebration for graduating 0.5ers on Saturday. “This auditorium — perhaps a space in which many of you have spent countless hours in classes and exams, staging performances and debating ideas — will be transformed this afternoon through your presence and our voice into a hall of celebration,” said Dean Rashid Zia ’01. Zia spoke along with President Christina Paxson P’19 and three undergraduate speakers — Seth Goldstein ’22.5 and a joint speech from Liliana King ’22.5 and Charlotte Scott ’22.5.

‘The Noel Diary’ rejects holiday rom-com absurdity, fails to deliver memorable plot, characters - The Brown Daily Herald

REVIEW | Netflix’s “The Noel Diary,” a recently released Christmas movie starring Justin Hartley and Barrett Doss from “This is Us” and “Station 19” respectively, fails to distinguish itself from other holiday films on the platform. By failing to embrace the absurdity of traditional romantic comedy, overusing dramatic montages, and creating relatively unlikable characters, the film falls far short of expectations.

Amidst the arrival of the holiday season, Netflix has been filling its roster of new releases with more and more cliché Christmas titles — including “The Noel Diary,” a film starring Justin Hartley and Barrett Doss of “This is Us” and “Station 19” fame, respectively. Based on a quasi-...

Recreational ma*****na sales open Thursday in Rhode Island - The Brown Daily Herald

As of Dec. 1, licensed dispensaries in the Ocean State can legally sell recreational ma*****na to individuals 21 years and older. Gov.

Following the act, five compassion centers — licensed medical ma*****na dispensaries — in Rhode Island were approved to sell recreational ma*****na.

On Thursday morning, 96-year-old Joe Maraia became the first person to legally purchase ma*****na for recreational use in Rhode Island at the Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center.

Last year, Brown refused COVID extensions to grad TAs in the Literary Arts program, ignoring the fact that the pandemic had deprived these grads of what they'd been promised when they came to Brown. Now, as Isabella Levine writes in The Brown Daily Herald, undergrads face lengthy waiting lists blocking their access to popular Lit Arts classes that GLO members design and teach: https://buff.ly/3cBkvPo

Lit Arts TAs need an extension in their programs, and they're ready to teach the classes undergrads want - but Brown still refuses to grant extensions or expand course offerings. The Lit Arts program and its grad TAs are obviously valued by undergrads paying tuition. Are they valued by Brown?

“ ‘The proposal here is to really tap into the creativity, the motivation and the interest of young people, BIPOC high school students in our state and to have them really play a significant role in helping us to improve and ultimately transform BIPOC communities,’ Tarantino (LRI ‘91) told The Brown Daily Herald. He emphasized that the implementation of the winning student’s proposal made the opportunity unique and unlike any other comparable scholarship he was aware of, in the state or across the country.”
Check out this great article yesterday from The Brown Daily Herald.

Peter A. Mello, managing director at WaterFire Providence, told The Herald he was grateful for the opportunity to host the “first BIPOC-themed WaterFire, where we’re celebrating Black, Indigenous and People of Color in arts, business and culture in the state of Rhode Island.”

“The WaterFire event has been going on for 25 years, and a big part of what happens at WaterFire is that we celebrate what is the best of Providence and Rhode Island — the people, the organizations, the culture, the history,” Mello said. He noted that local organizations often use the platform WaterFire provides “to engage their audiences” with social issues relevant to the community, so they were “super excited to be working with (Papitto Opportunity Connection) to create a special evening” uplifting BIPOC community members.
