While we've spent our lives yelling at politicians in a cramped conference room, Thai has been busy founding Vietnam's first nursing graduate program and serving as president of the Bellevue School Board. Thai wasn't up on some of the issues most important to the SECB members who are eating canned beans in hopes their rent checks will clear—issues like lifting the state ban on rent control and protecting renters statewide from no-cause evictions. But she'll add some needed education wonkery to our state legislature.
We have a substantial list of "firsts" this year, and Thai is no exception. If elected, which seems likely, she says she'll be the first refugee to serve in Olympia. He also has a lovely smile. He could be in gum ads. He's in politics, and the SECB would like to keep it that way.
She was the prime sponsor of a bill that included the biggest increase in funding for homeless and housing assistance in a decade. She helped pass the conversion therapy ban and personally worked to bring Washington Republicans onboard so that Republicans in other states could feel more comfortable breaking with their party's bigoted stance.
She supports a capital gains tax, and she's going to be a major player in getting state-based single payer to the floor. We have one quibble. Can you guess what it is? She voted for that bad public records bill—but she was so quick to send out a mea culpa. As a member of the sexual harassment task force, Macri is also working to clean up the old boy's club mentality cough, Matt Manweller, cough, Joe Fain, cough that clearly pervades the Capitol.
But instead of being a progressive voice for all of us queer, anarcho-communist uhhh tech bros on Capitol Hill, Chopp legislates like he's a shit accountant in Bellevue.
During his two decades in the state capital, he's watched our state's tax system become the most regressive in the country, failed to pass a carbon tax, failed to repeal the death penalty, and approved billions of dollars in tax breaks for big corporations. Chopp bears some of the responsibility for the embarrassing failures of the Democratic Party in Olympia, but his opponent is a Republican who refers to taxes as "job killing.
During her short tenure in Olympia, she supported progressive taxing like a capital gains tax—sadly, she does not support a statewide income tax. But she's a supporter of Sound Transit. She's being challenged by Dale Fonk, a Republican who screams about car tabs like every other Republican. Fonk can fonk the fonk off. Dhingra helped to flip the legislature blue last year.
Let's keep it that way. We like that Danson. We like that, too. He also supports carbon pricing, Sound Transit 3 even though his Kirkland district doesn't get a lot of direct serviceand, get this, he told the SECB he "strongly supports home grows" and cannabis cafes!
The concern over smoke inhalation is misguided, cannabis smoke does not cause cancer. He still wants special circumstances read: However, he's represented the 45th District for more than a decade, and he's fed up with "thoughts and prayers" as the only response to mass shootings.
We are, too, Larry! He also seems like a very nice man who is open to compromise and agonizingly slow, incremental change. So, not our favorite. But he's done some good things! In the wake of the Parkland shootings, he introduced legislation that makes it easier for schools to prevent and respond to mass shootings. Frockt is a sponsor of the senate's version of the state-based single-payer bill.
The SECB and our collective hospital debt is hoping to see some movement on that front, especially if the Democrats significantly increase their majority in the senate. Like a majority of the other dopes in his caucus, he voted to exempt himself from the public records act. Hopefully he's learned his lesson. His Republican opponent, Beth Daranciang, wants to defend "religious liberties" auto-translate: Gerry Pollet voted for the bill that would have shielded members of the legislature from disclosing their public records.
He was, as you know, not alone in this. But Pollet backed that bill even though he is a board member of the Washington Coalition for Open Government. Come the fuck on, Gerry! But like nearly every other legislator in Olympia, Pollet told the SECB he regretted his vote and he was one of the people calling for the governor to veto the bill. Otherwise, he is basically voting a straight SECB ticket. He supports taxing the rich capital gains, income tax, and reducing corporate tax breaksand he is a climate change leader.
He even told the SECB that he learned something from reading The Stranger, which is crazy, considering we haven't learned anything writing for The Stranger. At any rate, Pollet now supports giving adults the right to grow pot at home because of something he read here! Hell, he founded the King County Young Democrats.
He also supports women and minority issues! Valdez has made it his mission to repeal I, the initiative that blocked affirmative action in Washington State. Is that repeal going to happen anytime soon? But there's an initiative in the works I to make that happen. We'll see if Valdez proves himself. He also has a lot more going for him. For one, he's one of the few Latino members of the state legislature. If the SECB knows anything, it's that the legislature is old and it is white and that can change with a vote.
Fain denies the allegations and has called for an investigation. Even if he hadn't been credibly accused of rape! Meanwhile, Mona Das, a former congressional candidate with a mortgage business, says she'll support a capital gains tax, fight for climate change mitigation, work on expanding funding for early education and vocational programs, and secure more affordable housing in the burbs. In response to allegations against Fain, she said she "believes survivors of sexual assault" and added that "it's obvious we need more women in positions of power.
She only trailed Fain by approximately 8 points in the primary. Fain won his last race by 27 points. Vote Das, the only candidate in this race who hasn't been credibly accused of rape!!! Vote for Entenman because she knows firsthand the difficulties of being poor in King County. She grew up in low-income housing, raised a family, and then went back to school later in life. After that, she landed a job in Congressman Adam Smith's office, where she's worked for 12 years.
Hargrove supported a bill that would ban abortions even in cases of rape or incest, he wouldn't condemn the racist shooting of a Sikh man in his district because that would be "too political," and he tried to pass a transphobic bathroom bill.
The Madness of the Planets
Entenman came within less than 1 percentage point of beating this asshole in the primary. He voted against effective gun-control measures inand he voted for a bill that would shield himself from disclosing certain public records.
But his opponent, Republican Ted Cooke, is a piece of shit who opposes an income tax, wants public funds to go to private i. Hold your nose and vote Sullivan. With Tom's help, the state GOP fought against fixing our embarrassing tax system and blocked efforts to provide financial aid to undocumented college students and require insurance to cover birth control and abortion. It wasn't a good look inand it's even less of a good look now. Kuderer took out Tom inand she's running this year on fixing public schools as well as reforming our embarrassing tax system, reducing gun violence, fighting climate change, and a bevy of other liberal causes.
Her only serious fuckup this year was voting to shield herself and her buddies from public record requests, which would have made the SECB's job that much harder. Amy Walen, the mayor of Kirkland, and Cindi Bright, the host of a local radio show called HeartBeat, basically align on every issue.
However, Bright stood out for her enthusiastic support of legalizing homegrown weed. And if elected, Bright would be one of the few women of color in Olympia. To be fair, Bright seemed less familiar with some of the issues. So we're not certain she can represent Bellevue's interests very effectively—but after popping a pot lozenge, we realized we don't really want Bellevue's interests represented effectively in the legislature or anywhere else.
So yeah, vote Bright. And listen to HeartBeat! The carbon fee is the sort of history-making climate policy we sorely need. It's not perfect, true, but the world is melting and doing this particular something is better than doing nothing. Forest fires, ever heard of 'em? Yes, gas prices will go up. But the carbon fee offsets the pain of the regressive tax by investing a portion of the money in low-income communities to help them reduce fossil-fuel use, cut pollution, and lower their energy bills.
The opposition—which consists of Big Oil, Republicans, and union workers in fossil-fuel industries—has been attacking this initiative "from the left," and it's been funny to watch them try. In our endorsement meeting, Dana Bieber, the spokesperson for the petroleum company backing the opposition campaign, agreed that climate change was the biggest problem facing our generation.
She also agreed that we needed to do more than I The Doctor tells the passengers that the bus has passed through a wormhole into a different world, proving this to them by throwing a handful of sand into the space behind the bus.
The sand causes a rippling effect in the air. The same man who eyeballed the rhondium detector points a finger at the Doctor and demands to know if he used it to make the bus end up in the desert. Annoyed for receiving immediate blame from a human on a bus and having dealt with the animosity of the Midnight incidentthe Doctor doesn't keep to himself again.
Instead, he comes clean and says he was tracking a hole in reality that suddenly grew big and the bus drove into it. He elaborates that the other end of the wormhole was in the tunnel on Earth. Among the passengers is Carmenwho has been hearing mysterious voices since Christina got on.
The bus driver announces his desire to return to Earth, and promptly runs through the wormhole, accompanied by the Doctor's, "No, don't!
The other passengers of the bus witness the driver's skin and tissues incinerating, before he disappears into the wormhole with the same rippling effect as the sand. Meanwhile, on Earth, where the police are watching the wormhole, the driver's blackened skeleton steps out, halts, and then tumbles to the ground. Christina takes the reins as the crisis leader. After watching the bus driver's death, the Doctor sums up that the metal of the bus protected them from the same fate as the driver when they passed through the wormhole like a Faraday cageas Christina states.
Everyone returns to the bus so the group can make sense of the situation. Christina takes charge, introduces herself and the Doctor, then everyone introduces themselves: Nathana young adult with slicked up hair, Barclayabout the same age and the one who confronted the Doctor, Angela Whittakeran older blond woman, Louiswho goes by the nickname "Lou," and his wife, Carmen.
Christina notices the Doctor is the brainpower of the bunch and has him fill the rest of the group in on what has happened. Carmen and her husband discuss her psychic ability. The Doctor explains to the passengers on the bus that they went through the wormhole by accident, but Carmen tells him with some surprising knowledge that it was a doorway put there for a reason. Her husband Lou notes she has had a gift of foresight since she was a girl which has helped them make small wins on the lottery.
The Doctor deems Carmen a low-level psychic and theorises the alien sun has amplified her abilities. He asks her if she can see anything. She foretells, "Something is coming, riding on the wind and shining. The Doctor quells the clamouring bus and regains control, but Angela is still sobbing heavily. He instinctively grips her by the arms to get her attention and asks where she was heading to take her mind off the peril.
She replies she was going home to her family, Mike and Suzanne ; thinking about them calms her and abolishes her panicky state.

That is how it exists today. The belief that Earth and the rest of the solar system were born in largely their present form—the arrangement and characteristics of the planets almost preordained—has deep, clinging roots in the history of science. It extends further than Newton, back to the influential writings of the 13th-century monk Johannes de Sacrobosco, who described the universe in terms of clean, geometric patterns.
You could plausibly draw a line all the way to the perfect heavenly spheres of Aristotle. Amazingly, the same basic philosophy built atop a very different scientific foundation persisted well into the Space Age. In retrospect, that simple and comforting view had begun to unravel long before most scientists recognized what was happening.
As far back as the s, theoretical models trying to simulate the formation of the solar system kept coming up with an unwanted result: The planets migrated wildly, toward and away from the sun, making a royal mess of things in the process.
Intwo Swiss astronomers detected 51 Pegasi b, a planet orbiting a dim yellow star located 50 light years away in the constellation Pegasus. It was the first world found orbiting another star similar to the sun. The planet is a gassy, Jupiter-size giant, the kind of world that theoretically can form only in the cool regions far from its parent star. But there was 51 Pegasi b, hugging close in a searing-hot orbit. The only sensible explanation astronomers could come up with was that the planet had formed far out and then somehow shifted sharply inward.
Within a year, a competing American team discovered two more hot Jupiters; several dozen similar worlds are now catalogued. As astronomers got better at searching, they started to find a number of other improbable planets. Some were in highly oval orbits; some revolved around their stars at a steep angle, or even backward. Such arrangements did not seem physically possible unless the planets had migrated dramatically at some point.
If that process happened around other stars, it could have happened here as well. InWalsh was a postdoctoral fellow at the Nice Observatory, where he collaborated with Morbidelli. Walsh was already an expert in solar system dynamics; now he became fascinated by the concept of migrating planets and buried himself in the details of how the process would work.
He focused on the earliest stages of solar system formation while Morbidelli tackled a later, secondary instability. Getting planets to move is extremely easy in mathematical models of a newborn solar system.
The challenge—as those pen-and-paper theorists of the s had discovered—was finding ways for planets not to move. Data from the Hubble Space Telescope and other great observatories show that, in the big picture, infant planets emerge from a swirling disk of gas and dust around a just-formed star, known as a protoplanetary nebula. For the first few million years, planets are little more than debris bobbing on the waves in the disk.
As a result, he realized, the early solar system must have been more like bumper cars than clockwork. He also saw that if he fully embraced the idea of instability and took it to its logical conclusions, he could account for many aspects of the solar system that had previously defied easy explanation: Why is Mars so small? How did the asteroid belt form? Walsh knit his ideas into a theory he calls the Grand Tack, which creates a startlingly new narrative of how the Earth and other planets formed.

It is also sticking to its First it spiraled inward to the place where Mars is now about 1. Then it migrated out past its current location, yanked by the gravitational influence of the newly formed planet Saturn. The whole process took aboutyears—an eternity in human terms, but blazingly fast for the solar system, which is 4.
So what happens, I ask, when a planet that size goes on the prowl? It acts like a giant snowplow and essentially wipes out everything in its way. Most of the action happened on the outbound track, when Jupiter rammed through thick swarms of icy comets and asteroids. That snowplow effect sent those water-rich objects raining down on Earth just as it was beginning to grow.
The migration of Jupiter reshaped the solar system in many other ways. It cleared out the original asteroid belt on the way in and filled it with new objects on the way out.
