Say goodbye to winter blues: Sunnier skies are beneficial to your health

After a predictably cold and snowy Midwestern winter, there are few days more worth celebrating than the first sunny day of the year. For University of Wisconsin-Madison students especially, the sun emerges as a sign that the end of the semester is near, and with it, brings the promise of afternoons spent with friends at the Memorial Union Terrace, study sessions on picnic blankets on Bascom Hill and long walks along the Lakeshore path. 


I just think they're neat: Jelly fungi

In characteristic Wisconsin fashion, spring has sprung, and unsprung, and resprung, and then unsprung again and then re-resprung. Warmer weather is around the corner, and the snow has given way to not-so-gentle rain. The conditions are ideal…and now they are here. 


HRT, Assembly Bill 977

On Feb. 15, 2022, Assembly Bill 977 was introduced to the Wisconsin State Legislature by nine state representatives, and cosponsored by three state senators. Assembly Bill 977 proposed in the cold legal logic of political change that transgender and nonbinary kids under the age of 18 should be prohibited from any gender transition procedures and gender affirming medical care. Thankfully, this bill was left dead on the legislature floor March 15, but similar bills are on the rise across the country, including Missouri’s SB843, Tennessee's HB2835 and Arizona's HB2608. Gender affirming care, however, is critical for the health and livelihood of transgender youth.


Are we an invasive species?

Decrying humankind as an invasive species ignores thousands of years of co-evolution between mankind and nature, not to mention indigenous cultures that have a deep love for the land. 


The pandemic isn't over

It’s easy to begin thinking of the pandemic as background noise – something that isn’t really all that worrisome. However, the pandemic is not over. 


I just think they’re neat: Capybaras

Unless you’ve been living under a rock — in which case, welcome — you’ve probably seen some supremely chill animals that look like coconut dogs come along your feed. This nonchalant lil’ dude is a capybara, Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris. Neat!
