What would we want them to find — and what would we wish had stayed buried forever? It was there when it was in style — and it was there when it wasn’t.In 2014, the Wisconsin State Journal ran short appreciations of 100 objects that define Madison. It’s been trim and neat; it’s been walrus and substantial. It’s difficult to talk about Madison’s past, present and immediate future without talking about Paul Soglin.Victory celebrations always feature the winning team pretending to chop down the goal posts, a time-honored tradition that led to a standoff between the teams following UW’s 20-7 victory last season in Minneapolis when Minnesota protected the goal post in front of its band and refused to budge.Nonetheless, the result of that game was added to the others on the Axe’s handle, which is 6 feet long.When UW and Minnesota close the 2014 regular season on Nov.29 at Camp Randall Stadium, it will have been 3,675 days since the Gophers last touched the Axe.Would ethical opposition to the destruction of embryos bring the research to a halt?Would cell therapies cure patients with diabetes, Parkinson’s disease or spinal-cord injuries? In 2007, Thomson and a Japanese researcher co-discovered a way to reprogram mature cells to their embryonic state without using embryos, easing critics’ concerns.

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.
Ancient civilizations are defined by their artifacts. troops finally started to trickle back from a long war in Vietnam.
If Madison were suddenly smothered by a Mount Vesuvius, or swallowed up by Lake Mendota like Atlantis, what would future archaeologists conclude about us? It was there to mark the beginning of the career of the city’s youngest mayor.
