UW-Milwaukee officials on Monday explained details of a new buyout offer for employees. The plan encourages faculty and staff who are close to retirement to leave early.

The campus stands to lose as much as $40 million in state aid over the next two years, if lawmakers approve Gov. Walker’s budget. One way UWM is looking to deal with the shortfall is through a buyout program.

Chancellor Mark Mone says the university will offer the deal to about 300 of its 4,500 employees.

In American journalism, the website Politifact has emerged as a leading national effort to fact-check statements made by politicians and other news makers. It's a given, though, that the American media is an independent one, and while some elements might be opinionated, it is not seen as a tool for national or local governments to issue propaganda.

The University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee and its neighbors were shocked to learn  Gov. Walker’s biennial budget would remove state protections for Downer Woods, an 11-acre preserve on campus.

Vice Chancellor of University Relations and Communications Tom Luljak says UWM did not ask for the changes included in the governor's budget proposal. Leaders assume that the protections state law has provided for the woods would be transferred to the UW Board of Regents - UWM's governing body.

In case you hadn’t noticed it for the past few months, there are things like grass and pavement under what until recently were persistent piles of Wisconsin snow.

The rocks that can be found even further underneath all of it formed over hundreds of millions of years.  All of these rocks of many different kinds can be more interesting than you might have thought.

Rob Graziano, instructor and an instructional lab manager in the Department of Geosciences at UW-Milwaukee, already knows they're interesting.
