UW Madison and Marquette placed among the top 40 national Universities in a recent ranking by the Washington Monthly’s College Guide based on national rankings in 3 criteria ” Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country)”. Madison ranked #23 and Marquette ranked #32. The UW did particularly well on Research with a number 9 rank, while Marquette scored a 2nd place finish on Service.
UWM achieved an overall ranking of 250, out of the 258 national schools ranked.

Showing what a good sport she is and the breadth of her constituency, Democratic Representative Tammy Baldwin rocked out on the steps of Madison’s City Hall with Wonder Woman. Go Tammy!
I was curious to learn more about Wonder Woman, so visited Wikipedia for a historical perspective. She was introduced in the 40s and was based on representing the following: “a distinctly feminist role model whose mission was to bring the Amazon ideals of love, peace, and sexual equality to a world torn by the hatred of men.”
Maybe we need more Wonder Women like Tammy in Congress to bring Wonder Women’s ideals to fruition.
This is one of the best political ads I have seen. WIth all of the talk about the dangers of Nancy Pelosi, I dont think that there is any doubt, that she is head and shoulders more qualified than her predecessor, or the orange guy who might take her place….
“Rounds of golf: 100 plus. Golf expenses: $83,000. Membership at all male club: $75,000. Special interest travel including golf junkets: $159,000. Raising the retirement age to 70 and voting to end unemployment benefits: priceless. For those who want an out-of-touch pro golfer for a Congressman, there’s John Boehner. For everyone else, there’s Justin Coussoule.”
You may have heard that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, parent company of Faux News (you know the fair and balanced television station), donated $1 million to the Republican Governor’s Association. Media Matters crafted this ad in response to the donation.
Ron Johnson was actually right; Greenland was green…sometime between 450,000 and 800,000 years ago. Never in recorded history has Greenland been “green,” and what’s more, it’s commonly accepted that Greenland was given its name by Viking Eric the Red, who gave it the name Greenland in order to make it sound more attractive to potential settlers.
[T]he Wisconsin Democrat has held 72 town-hall meetings this year — a rate of nearly one every three days.
Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) came in second with 65, followed by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) with 42; Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) with 37; and Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) with 29. (See the complete list of events here.)
The senators’ staffers confirmed the schedules, which include meetings held between Jan. 1 and Aug. 20. However, the final numbers will change before the end of the year, especially in these last months before the November elections.
One reason Feingold was in the top spot was because he enjoys attending them.
“It’s basically the best thing I do as a senator,” he told Congress.org. “It’s very different than a poll or phone call. It’s a far more real experience.”
