By Tony Palmeri I frequently ask students to reflect on how their thinking or behavior has changed as a result of exposure to corporate media. It’s always a difficult discussion because none of us like to admit publically that media exert power over our lives. When they do open up, students will typically talk about how things like their language ... Read More »
By Dennis Riley Trying to succeed – perhaps even to survive – in the American economy is often compared to performing a high wire act in a circus. Unfortunately, a great many Americans trying to do that act fall – or are pushed – from the wire. That has always been true, of course, but a little over a century ... Read More »
Robert K Greenleaf, in 1970, developed a theory that defined the motivation of a leader as being of service to others. Now, Thomas A. Thibodeau, Director of Viterbo University’s Master’s Degree in Servant Leadership will give a lecture at the Howard Johnson Inn & Conference Center. As much as the term “Servant Leader” appears hypocritical, Greenleaf purposefully named his theory ... Read More »
By David A. Hayford “I didn’t inhale,” was Bill Clinton’s response about using marijuana. That joins a long line of Presidential prevarications. Though it is certainly not as serious as the first Bush and “Read my lips.

Hilary Swank is a talented actress, but the movie – like many others with the same formula – does not accurately depict the inner city experience. During several ... Read More »

It sounds so extreme — the idea of grabbing your money and going home, cutting your ties with some other party even if it ends up costing you more than it costs the one you are divesting from. That’s why divestment campaigns most often start out as ... Read More »
By Paul Van Auken The concept of community often serves as a theme or even organizing framework for this column. I don’t consider myself an expert on anything, but community is kind of my thing. I write about it here and in academic work, it is a common thread in a number of my classes at UW Oshkosh, and I ... Read More »
By Dennis Riley I don’t know if America’s Superrich, Almost Superrich, Regular Run of the Mill Rich, or Merely Aspire to be Rich have been feeling extra nervous the past few weeks, but the two men who hold the arguably most powerful megaphones in the world – the Pope and the President of the United States – have forcefully questioned ...

By Miles Maguire The Oshkosh riverfront, which suffered through decades of environmental abuse followed by a series of halting, mostly piecemeal steps to reclaim it, is on the verge of a major transformation that has the potential to remake the city’s image and economy. “This is our time,” said Grant Schwab, a partner in the newly renamed Morgan District LLC, ...
