A California company is conducting clinical trials involving stem cells in patients with eye disorders. Maybe this accounts for some of the reason police have issued 267,256 alternate-side parking tickets over the last 10 winters.Dozens of UW-Madison researchers are using stem cells to better understand biology and disease. Alternate-side parking was launched in 1980 as a way to ensure city plows are able to get at both sides of the street during and after snowstorms between Nov. Outside the Isthmus, that means residents who park on the street have to park on the odd-numbered side of the street on the odd-numbered days of the month and the even-numbered side of the street on the even-numbered days of the month, regardless of what the weather is like. Due to a shortage of on-street parking, those who live on the Isthmus — roughly between Park and Proudfit streets on the west and south and the Yahara River to the north — get a break: They only have to follow the odd/even rules when the city declares a snow emergency, or when at least 3 inches of snow has fallen. It’s not as simple as it sounds because the rule applies from 1 to 7 a.m., so if you’re parking your car for the night at, say, 8 p.m. -6-Some of the most compelling moments of any University of Wisconsin football season come in the moments following the annual border battle between the Badgers and the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
Prior to that 2004 game, then-Badgers coach Barry Alvarez noted that UW had built a trophy case for the Axe. “That’s not good.”The Badgers beat the Gophers 38-14 that year and haven’t given back the Axe, which is displayed in a case in UW’s locker room.For example, few objects provoke as strong a reaction as the "blue fist" poster that was ubiquitous in parts of Madison during the 2011 protests against Gov. Love it or hate it, it's forever associated with Madison and its famous liberalism. The obelisk of concrete footballs outside Camp Randall is either an abomination or a towering representation of the University of Wisconsin's football dominance. In their oranges, greens and yellows, they color up the Terrace. * * *The Vilas Park shoe slide has been the go-to spot for romping children since the 1950s.-1-Unlike the rest of us, the chairs take winters off. The sight raises smiles and inspires fist pumps in the soul. It is a whimsical throwback, a comfy place when all else fails, a connection to make-believe.For longtime residents, these things remind us of home. The chairs fill with friends old and young, drinking, chatting, grooving to the bands that play on the lakeshore stage. The Terrace has always been Madison on its best behavior and at its most picturesque. You don’t need to swipe a card or pass through security to sit lakeside and catch the dreamy vibe. Saturdays on the Terrace come with the sounds of crowds and bands and football from nearby Camp Randall Stadium. Soglin might have the strongest case for having lucky facial hair, and that may be why he has never shaved it clean.For newcomers, we hope they'll serve as a sort of Cliff's Notes to getting to know the city better. The chairs act as paradise’s furniture, a symbol of that feeling you get sitting for hours without worries as the summer sun heats the world and sets nightly over the lake. It’s been there each of the 10 times he’s been elected to a seat in Madison’s city hall — seven times as mayor and three times as an alderman.
