“Baseball players are sometimes called ‘the boys of summer,’ but there are some “girls of summer” who are putting basketball on the radar. The sport has opened some amazing doors for UW-Green Bay product Mehryn Kraker ’16 ’17—a graduate of West Allis Central High School who plays professionally in Spain.
‘For the last two years, I have lived in the heart of the Pyrenees Mountains — and as a 23-, 24-year-old, I think it’s pretty cool to be able to say that. I don’t think you can put a price on the amount of life knowledge I am gaining right now,'” said Kraker.
Anger can actually be a good thing, says UW-Green Bay Prof. Ryan Martin (Psychology) in an interview with BYU Radio. “We often think of anger as a bad thing – it can make us mean and reckless and lead us to believe that the idiot cutting us off in traffic is a monster. And it’s even worse on the internet. But anger expert Ryan Martin says we’re overlooking the emotion’s power for good.” See more via Episode – BYUradio.

With a taste comparable to that of cucumber, borage has various culinary applications. The leaves can of course be used as a salad green and the flowers as edible decorations, but to stop there would be an insult to the wide variety of uses for borage. This herb can be used in soups, salads, borage-lemonade, strawberry-borage cocktails, preserves, borage jelly, various sauces, cooked as a stand-alone vegetable, or used in desserts in the form of fresh or candied flowers, to name a few. I like to use the leaves for tea and dry them in a similar way to the chamomile flowers. Please specify if you would like the leaves or the flowers of the plant.

UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Aaron Weinschenk (Public and Environmental Affairs) was interviewed in Isthmus, recently… “In an April 2019 survey, Charles Franklin at the Marquette University Law School found most Wisconsin Republicans — 88 percent — are happy with Trump. Meanwhile, 95 percent of Democrats disapproved of Trump, while independents were split, with 45 percent approving and 49 percent disapproving.
Overall 52 percent of those responding disapproved of Trump and 44 percent approved. ‘It’s not like overwhelming disapproval,’ says Aaron Weinschenk, a political scientist at UW-Green Bay ‘It’s sort of mixed overall, which you can expect, given the closeness of the election results here in Wisconsin.’” See more via Falling in line – Isthmus | Madison, Wisconsin.
“The contemporary-art Idea Gallery is showcasing the work of two internationally renowned artists in Exhibit 2, which opened July 6. Painter Kristy Deetz and Minkyu Lee, who works in ceramics and wood sculpture, are both UW-Green Bay professors and new to Idea Gallery.
Deetz’s works are carved, burned and painted on wooden surfaces, creating an interconnected pattern echoing nature, culture and our spiritual, emotional and intellectual lives. The realistically painted elements serve as touchstones to multiple levels of meaning.
Lee’s art reflects the repetition that is an integral part of daily life.
‘Recurrence, routine, cycles and rituals are universal principles that structure nature and human existence,’ Lee said. ‘“For me, geometric structures underlie our world; these include all organic and inorganic matter. My artworks are attempts to visualize this invisible concept by using repetitive geometric forms.'”
