Testimony of the Living, Part Six

December 8, 2018

What is this? This is the beginning of a story. Not a story about Truman State University, nor a story of real people from anywhere, but a work of fiction. A short story from the brain of a person with too much going on inside her head. And this is only the beginning of it.
Each edition will bring you a new piece of the story until it has been fully told. Then, perhaps, I’ll tell you a new story. For now, welcome to the world of five teenagers living in Finder’s Point, Washington, a town that one of them describes as a “hideout for the lifeless.” This is the story of the creative, passionate, and animated living among the dreary, dull, and almost dead. This is the story of a group of friends whose own parents didn’t know what to do with them. A group of friends who are committed to staying alive. […]

December 5, 2018

It all began with a simple burrito stand at the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings.  Hector Contreras, John Garlock and Contreras’s two nieces would fry tater tots and sausage at 5 a.m. and place their burritos into a wagon to pull two blocks to The Square.

November 29, 2018

Truman professor documents life with wearable camera

November 18, 2018

Psychology professor Mark Hatala has been using a wearable camera to document his life since May 2014. The camera he wears, and sometimes sets on a shelf or other surface, takes a photo every 30 seconds.

Hatala said the venture is part of a research movement called the “Quantified Self,” in which a person uses technology like a camera or a Fitbit to measure various aspects of their life, like how often they eat a certain food. If he wanted to, Hatala said, he could see every meal he has had in the past four years. […]
