Freshman outside hitter Jasmyn Martin didn’t always know that she wanted to play volleyball at the college level. In her sophomore year of high school, she faced a choice between basketball and volleyball as her sport of choice.
“I had to make that big decision, and I thought if I stop playing, I’m going to regret it,” she said.
For the Gophers, that decision paid off. Martin has added to the young core of the Minnesota volleyball program, providing both offense with her 93 kills that rank fifth on the team, and defense with 24 digs and 21 blocks.
Gophers offensive lineman Jared Weyler returns this week from a foot injury, but the Gophers injured list is still long and full of starters.
To make up for these injuries, head coach P.J. Fleck has had to pull redshirts. Two freshman cornerbacks now wearing redshirts could lose them in the Michigan State game this Saturday. Freshman Rey Estes is listed second-string cornerback behind junior Antonio Shenault, and freshman Justus Harris is listed behind sophomore Coney Durr — who is recovering from a torn ACL.
The Dinkytown Business Alliance is struggling to bring new businesses into the fold.
DBA has brought Dinkytown’s business owners together for the last 69 years, with a mission to “strengthen the business climate of the Dinkytown commercial area.” But the organization has seen declining interest from local businesses, with some disagreeing with the way it’s run.
Here is what the past few days have taught me. The same conservatives who mock progressives as “snowflakes” cannot handle criticism, and their immediate reaction is not discussion and debate, but physical confrontation steeped in toxic masculinity. The University administration showed us last year that it is less interested in defending students from hate crimes by protecting bigots’ platforms of speech. But the campus community steps up.
Walking on Huron Boulevard in Stadium Village reminds me of my middle school days, when I use to foolishly traverse suburban highways by foot. There is no parking lane that insulates you from traffic like many other Minneapolis streets, so cars zoom by an arm from the edge of the sidewalk. The empty grass field with the University of Minnesota sign sits inconspicuously empty, leaving you unsure if it’s supposed to be a park or just something the University hasn’t got around to yet.
The University of Minnesota was granted a patent for a fast-acting cyanide antidote last month, a development over a decade in the making.
While other cyanide antidotes already exist, the antidote developed by University researchers is more effective than others on the market, in part because it’s administered by injection. Researchers hope the antidote will save the lives of people exposed to hydrogen cyanide, including firefighters, industrial workers and terrorist attack victims.
The Gophers are about start another campaign in the Big Ten, and for the first time since 2015-16, they have a new leadership core.
That group of four players is led by junior Tyler Sheehy, picked as captain last spring, who is embracing the title and is ready to learn as the Gophers head into conference hockey on Friday.
Sophomore Alex Woken suffered a season-ending knee injury last year, her first year at Minnesota.
Through the first four games in this season, the sophomore has emerged as an offensive contributor on the team.
She scored her first goal of the year against Ohio State this past weekend and has recorded 16 shots on net, which places her third on the team. Head coach Brad Frost is excited to see what’s in store for Woken.
The process that professors use to determine the correct textbook for a class is presently very opaque. While certainly some professors may be open to students’ requests to use former editions of books, there hasn’t been a systematic adjustment of policy at the University level.
Professors at the University should be required to select books that are not only available online, but more importantly, are inexpensive.
Prospect Park groups are looking to diversify neighborhood housing by bringing a slate of affordable options to the area.
The Towerside Innovation District is leading an affordable housing movement to draw residents of varied income levels to the neighborhood. The Prospect Park Association also hopes to use the inclusive housing options as an incentive to attract Amazon’s second headquarters to the area.
On Tuesday, the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission rejected plans for a 25-story apartment proposed for the University's Marcy-Holmes neighborhood.
As people may or may not be aware, the University is in negotiations with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and Teamsters unions here at the University of Minnesota as we speak. As usual, the University has no money and the lowest paid front line workers have had just about enough of their 'false dilemma fallacy'.
The Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Association will hold its first-ever October election in hopes of strengthening student participation.
With students moving in and out of the neighborhood as academic years change, MHNA’s new Oct. 17 election date is more accommodating to student schedules.
Minnesota’s schedule doesn’t get much easier from here.
The Gophers (3-2, 0-2 Big Ten) face Michigan State (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) at TCF Bank Stadium Saturday, and Minnesota has work to do to prevent more losses like the ones against Maryland and Purdue.
A scrap of lime-green fabric, resource cards and a caring soul can be all it takes to save a life.

In response to a rash of vandalism targeting University of Minnesota student group murals this weekend, three affected political groups painted “censored” over nine panels on the Washington Avenue Bridge Monday.
The large, white-on-black words cover phrases like “racists not welcome” and “can’t paint over hate” that were painted over multiple group’s panels – including Turning Point USA, College Republicans and the Minnesota Republic – in a tumultuous few days following the annual Paint the Bridge event.
A University of Minnesota student was robbed Monday evening, according to a University of Minnesota Police Department timely warning.
State Rep. Ilhan Omar is staying busy in the legislative offseason by advocating for local and national issues.

A UMPD officer reported being assaulted while responding to a report at the 17th Avenue Residence Hall on Oct. 8. Officers were initially called to respond to a report of a drunk 18-year-old male being loud and belligerent at the dorm around 5:36 a.m. While being escorted out of the building, the man spit on the arm of one of the officers as they attempted to put him on a stretcher.
