November 11 is Armistice Day… otherwise known as Veteran’s Day. In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…” 94 years later, the War to End All Wars has done anything but. Vets for Peace Clarence Kalin Chapter member Larry Orr spoke on the Monday Buzz with some reflections on Veteran’s Day. more »

Art as Human Impulse

Tuesday, 5 November 2013 | buzz

We are often taught that the history of human civilization has been one of near-constant progress. Life keeps getting better, with better technology, more education, more leisure time. In contrast, life in ancient times was, in the words of Thomas Hobbes, “brutish, nasty and short.” But, on the other hand, consider art. The ancients — even cavemen going back 50,000 years into prehistory — found time to make paintings, carvings, sculptures and music. If life then was so rough, why would human beings invest so much time, energy and effort in an activity that has so little relation to their ultimate survival? Thomas Dale has served on the UW Madison faculty since 1999, and is currently the chair of the Art History Department. He joined Buzz host Brian Standing on Monday, November 4, 2013 to help us answer these questions. more »
