HOW DO I KEEP MYSELF SAFE WALKING AROUND CAMPUS:

• Download the RAVE Guardian Safety App
• Familiarize yourself with the layout of the campus. Survey the campus while classes are in session and after dark to see that academic buildings, walkways, facilities, and parking lots are adequately secured and well-lighted.
• Plan the safest route to your destination; choose well-lighted, busy pathways and streets.
Share your class schedule with your parents and trusted friends and give them your telephone numbers.
• At night, stick to well-lighted areas whenever possible and avoid alleyways or "short cuts" through isolated areas.
• Travel in groups and avoid going out alone at night.
• Use the campus escort or shuttle services at night.
• Know where the emergency call boxes are located on campus and learn how to use them.
• If you are being followed, change direction and go to the nearest business or home; knock on the door, and request that someone call the Police. Note the description of the person following you.
Walk near the curb and avoid shrubbery or other places of potential concealment.
• Tell a friend or roommate where you are going and what time you expect to return.
• Stay alert to your surroundings and the people around you.
• Carry your purse close to your body and keep a firm grip on it; carry your wallet in an inside coat pocket or your front pant pocket.
• Keep your keys separate from your purse or backpack.
• Don't overload yourself with bags or packages and avoid wearing shoes that restrict your movements.
• Walk with a confident stride; keep your head up and look around.
• If a motorist stops and asks for directions, keep your distance from the car.
• Call for a SAFE WALK 414-229-4627

Winter Blues or SAD

The winter blues are very common, with many experiencing mood shifts during the colder, darker days of winter and fall. It typically starts in the fall and persists through the winter months. Although you may feel more gloomy than usual, the winter blues typically don't hinder your ability to enjoy life.

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in the seasons. An estimated 5% of Americans experience seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

Common symptoms of seasonal depression include trouble focusing, fatigue, feelings of sadness, changes in sleep, an increase in restless activity, changes in appetite and lack of interest in activities once enjoyed, according to the American Psychiatric Center.

Treatments can include: light therapy boxes, weighted blankets, exercise, medication, and therapy.

If your winter mood causes significant distress in your life it may be part of a Major Depression with a seasonal component. If you believe this is the case, or you are unsure, please be sure to see a licensed mental health professional.

You can reach out to Norris Health Center: 414-229-4133 or visit their website for more information: https://uwm.edu/norris/counseling/

Milwaukee police deputy makes racist comment on interracial couple relationship status 👀😬😔
They drill “if you see something, say something,” into all of us. But that is apparently not true at UW-Milwaukee. My daughter was a lab assistant tonight in the digital lab in Mitchell Hall and had an issue with what appeared to be a mentally ill woman show up twice asking for help. D locked the door and called campus police. They said, “yeah, we know about her but she’s pretty harmless.” D asked 👮‍♀️ to walk the students out and they refused. (This is 9:45 pm) Really disappointed at this. The woman may be harmless, until she’s not. If she’s not a student, why is she in the lab and lounge?
Excuse my vent for a moment. This evening at 6:39 while driving home westbound on Edgewood, a member of the UWM Police Dept in a Ford Explorer (i did not get the number) travelling eastbound towards me made a fast u-turn at Summit Ave. There are two key points here. a: he used no turn signal and b: I had to brake fairly hard because of his maneuver. Then, after travelling 40 or 50 feet now westbound on Edgewood in front of me, he hit the brakes and THEN pulled over to the curb... Again with no signal of his intention, again making me brake suddenly. Now I have two choices while driving to express my displeasure with another driver: either my middle finger extended (which I don't do), or to honk, which I did. He then came off the curb after me and pulled up next to me at the stop sign at Downer Ave. to ask me what my problem was. I simple said "turn signal please" to which he said he had it on. He most certainly did not. And proceeded to tell me that I was looking for any excuse to honk at him. And that I had my hand over the horn before he did anything. Well Sir, I was not, and I did not. I honked because you did something wrong and illegal that had a direct effect on me. I generally support the police, and the UWM police (because if there is a problem with UWM students in our neighborhood you come and take care of it). But if you do something illegal and wrong, then own up to it and move on. Don't try to call a member of the public who saw you do something wrong a liar to his/her face. I was simply going to give you a short honk to express my displeasure with your poor driving and let it go and move on, but you Sir felt the need to escalate the non-issue. So I felt the need to write this and share it to your department. As I understand it Sir, your department does have the right to issue traffic tickets. Please issue two to yourself for two counts of failure to signal (or however it would be specifically worded)
Carmen went to prison, with her son. Again, Jason Rocks arrested his friends. That is probably the foreign answer.
Jason Rocks returns the wild animals to the Humane Society. Then, the transaction has an IP address. You have all the resources. We cannot call someone to tell you the facts, though.
There is no clue to Jason Rocks because he did not talk about buying things, with me, at the karaoke session. But, if you found the credit card, you could introduce yourself. When you are working the register, you could put the credit card, in your shoe. You can trace the last transaction. You would fingerprint them. Why? They are dealing with cash and the public. When the UWM police station, it would have been 1984. I took the bowling class, which is next to the Gashaus. Jason must like German beers. Maybe, he bought imported beers.
I only know Ryan, at the JB's On 41, in Milwaukee, WI. Ryan sings, with everyone. It is slippery, when you go to your car. I do not stay out late. If Jason Rocks bought a bowling ball, you would have a different receipt. We are not questioning him. There was no bad boy, in the storyline.
I am not connected to a college. I already know that the employees of JB's On 41 stoled his credit card. Jason Rocks never picked up the credit card, after his shift. You must have the full 15-digits to make purchases. I was wondering who's computer the transaction was done on. He owns a cat. I have a computer at home. You hit blue for one ticket. I was thinking that they stoled his cell phone. But, people are very brave.
I am not richer, today, because the banker did not give the touring loan to the bandsman. There were open issues, at the concert, that they spoke about. I did not finish booking the band, yet. The investor did Will Calls to get his attention, during a karaoke session. Maybe, we cannot go back to JB's On 41 because you arrest someone. I never understand the word "facts". I just have bad days. Your department never forgets a face. I knew that I needed more friends.
I took up singing because I got in a car accident. I took too many liquid Genesis vitamin, yesterday. I am typing for a talent agency. Then, I go to work. I am ill, for an hour, before work. Whatever, I say. I talk to the boss. So, he will take me, as his employee, again. I was supposed to do errands.
