The Japanese artist Mr. brings his first solo museum exhibition in the United States , a series titled “Live On,” to the Seattle Asian Art Museum (SAAM) beginning Friday Nov. 22nd.

Mr. is a protegé of the prolific contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, and derives his name from the Yomiuri Giants professional baseball team’s player Shigeo “Mr. Giants” Nagashima. Mr. has said that the March 2011 tsunami that hit Japan’s Tohoku coast had a profound effect on his work.

Although there are 3,553 Chinese international students enrolled at the University of Washington, it can be easy to get homesick.

That is why the Chinese Student Association (CSA) introduced Dumpling Night a few years ago.

Held every fall quarter, Dumpling Night gives students a chance to learn how to make dumplings said Ray Li, the CSA’s activities coordinator, “It definitely helps with homesickness and gives people a sense of belonging.”

Misinformation has come to define the Ebola outbreak, at least in North America, where there have only been 3 confirmed cases, as opposed to West Africa where more than 13,000 are infected.

Tonight, the Washington Global Health Alliance and CodeMed are joining forces to present factual information on the Ebola outbreak to a Seattle audience.
