What many graduating students lack, however, is the ability to send a concise and professional email, to make a phone call without battling sweaty palms or how to politely but confidently ask for somebody’s time — in short, how to communicate like an adult.
With an ongoing impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, UP students are discussing what this means and how it will affect the country. However, impeachment is a complex process.

A happy number is a natural number defined by the following process: Starting with any positive integer, replace the number by the sum of the squares of its digits and repeat this process until the number resulting from this process equals one and stays at one or it loops endlessly in a cycle and never equals one. All natural numbers for which this process ends in one are called happy numbers, while all the other numbers for which this process do not end in one are called unhappy or sad numbers.

For students staying in Portland over break, here are some ways to best utilize your time off.

I am a big fan of electric cars. All else equal, electric cars accelerate faster and are typically equipped with more technological features than their combustion-driven cousins. EV technology has come a long way since its debut, so much so that electric cars are not only common but mainstream. That said, electric vehicle technology is still very much in its infancy. Charging is slow, range is short and the cars are expensive. Even Teslas, widely accepted to be the current benchmark of electric cars, is still plagued with these drawbacks. So what’s going to fix this? Racing.
