  • The Benefits of a Foreign-Language Tattoo
    My yoga instructor’s eyes lit up as he bared his forearm. “Look!” In the dim candlelight of the yoga studio, I squinted at the place he’d indicated. There was a tattoo, but not of anything recognizable, at least not to me.“What is it?” I asked uncomfortably.“Salaam!” he said. “It means ‘peace’ in Arabic!”As a professor of Arabic, I get regular requests to verify tattoos, or to admire the ones people already have. This was one of those times.I looked again, and sure enough, there were the four Arabic letters that make the sounds “s,” “l,” “a,” and “m”—the letters needed to spell “peace.” But they were disconnected, which explains why I couldn’t read it: Arabic must be written like cursive, each letter attached to the next, or else it is rendered unintelligible.

    America doesn't have enough dentists, and Ahmed El Zawi could be part of the solution—if only the federal government would let him. El Zawi emigrated from Libya to attend the University of Washington's dental school. He graduated in March 2017 and is licensed to practice dentistry in Washington state and Virginia. But it is illegal for El Zawi to work as a dentist—to work at all, actually—because his student visa expired in March. Though he found an employer willing to sponsor him for an H-1B, his name was not selected in the annual lottery that determines who receives one of those valuable government permission slips. El Zawi was able to renew his student visa to stay in the country legally. He's taking business classes while biding his time until next year's H-1B lottery, when he plans to apply again.
