Spreading the Linux Gospel

For most of us, buying a new computer means two choices: a PC or a Mac, and the operating systems that come standard with each. But to a small yet growing group of dedicated people, that choice is a false dichotomy.

The Linux Users' Group of Davis has, at its core, a mission to expand awareness and use of Linux operating systems. The club will be celebrating its 10-year anniversary on Monday at the Davis Brach of the Yolo County Public Library (315 East 14th St.), from 7 to 9 p.m. (The library is closed for Martin Luther King Day but LUGOD has reserved the facility for the meeting).

Dining in Davis: Beach Hut Deli

I was skeptical when I first heard about Beach Hut Deli, which opened last month downtown. After all, there are already a slew of sandwich options at Davis and its name is a little hokey.

But Beach Hut Deli is more than a bro'd out version of Subway. Its sandwiches are of gargantuan size, albeit more expensive than what you could order on campus. However, with a friend of similar tastes, you could split a specialty sandwich and walk out the door full.

Student dances her way to Elite

Plastic flip-flops and suede Ugg boots lay abandoned on the heavily polished floor. The sound of dribbling basketballs faintly echoes in the gymnasium as students wearing faded sweatshirts of their past ballet recitals watch a girl dance to her own voice reciting lyrics. Her polished fingernails graze the floor, making a soft clicking sound.

Breast cancer survivors counsel current patients

In order to support patients newly-diagnosed with breast cancer, the Safeway Foundation recently gave the UC Davis Cancer Center $128,000 to launch the WeCARE Community-Based Breast Cancer Peer Navigator Project.

WeCARE will provide the recently diagnosed patients with peer navigators, also called "cancer coaches," in order to help patients through those first months after their diagnosis. The project creator, UC Davis assistant adjunct professor Dr. Marlene von Friederichs-Fitzwater, was inspired by her own life experiences.
