Eye Drop: Highlights from this week’s magazine
The Eye’s first issue of the year is out today! Pick up a copy of it at Spectator newsstands around campus. From the story of AIDS at Columbia to Pussy Riot to Fashion’s night out, here’s an idea of what you can find inside.
When the AIDS epidemic hit the US in the 1980s, Columbia moved to the forefront of research and advocacy for those affected. In this week’s lead, Will Hughes tells the story of CU’s Gay Health Advocacy program, its pioneers, and how a diagnosis changed a student’s life. [The Lead]
Pussy Riot’s arrest and trial made headlines this summer and made the band members the faces of political dissent. Andrea Garcia-Vargas tackles the causes of their persecution and the conversations the band has started. [Music]
Professor Jeffrey Sachs has sold millions of books, directs Columbia’s Earth Institute and is leading a conference where people will discuss meeting the UN’s Millenium Development Goals. Laura Booth spoke with him about the conference and #Occupy. [Eye to Eye]
Art in the subway system is something that a lot of people don’t take the time to stop and stare at. Frances Corry looked at a man who gives tours of New York’s underground (literally) art scene and one man who helps people appreciate it. [Visual Arts]
At Fashion’s Night Out this year, a mob of people destoyed an Audi, probably because they didn’t get to see Azealia Banks. In this week’s 20/20, Anneliese Cooper discusses why she is perfectly happy sitting Fashion’s Night Out out. [20/20]
