Ben Steele Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 5:22 p.m. UTC Aug 8, 2018 Marquette rising junior Markus Howard will be one of the nation’s top guards next season. Known for his extensive off-season work, Howard is always looking to challenge himself. Last week he attended the Chris Paul Elite Guard Camp in Winston-Salem, N.C, with many of the best college and high school backcourt players. He answered a few questions about his experience. Q. You were at the camp for three days. How was the it structured? A. We’d have our first session in the morning around like 10 o’clock and we’d go for like two-and-half, three hours and it would be strictly just drill work. We’d have different stations and they’d split us up, high school and college, and do drills that were about 15 minutes apiece. We’d do that for a couple of hours then we’d have lunch. After we broke for lunch we’d come back and just compete: 1-on-1, 3-on-3, 5-on-5. … [Read more...] about Q&A: Marquette’s Markus Howard talks about learning from Chris Paul at elite guard camp

Why do you love murder? Tara Jacoby for Observer I have a confession: I love murder. I belong to the growing community of (mostly) women who guzzle stories of violence like they’re warm cups of Kool-Aid. Stories of violence have become part of the fabric of my daily life. I listen to the wildly influential podcast My Favorite Murder when I’m cleaning my room, I watch old episodes of Law and Order: SVU as I pump away on my basement treadmill, and sometimes I like to fall asleep to the dulcet tones of Karina Longworth waxing poetic about famous dead blondes. I devoured this spring’s buzziest book, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, in a single, stressful evening.Like many American women, I’ve been fascinated by the looming specter of stranger danger since childhood. As soon as I realized I was a walking target for a certain kind of predator, I began to gather stories of dead girls. I wanted to know everything about these victims—maybe if I knew … [Read more...] about Why Do You Love Murder Shows? 10 Women (and a Guy Named Bill) Explain.

For Luis Miranda, sipping coffee from his Lego mug in front of his boss two years ago led to a new career. The recently hired Denver Broncos video editor soon taught himself 3-D animation and began creating Lego-like animations of team highlights each week during the season. Miranda was one of several Broncos employees who shared a different side of working for the NFL team — the science, technology, engineering and math side — with students Thursday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Pre-engineering students from Montrose High School may not have met any football players, but they left with a better understanding of how to put STEM degrees to work at places such as Sports Authority Field — from building and maintaining the turf to working in the ThunderVision Control Room. Employees in the control room develop digital content, control audio and manage all the displays in the stadium, including those skinny “ribbon” … [Read more...] about Denver Broncos open up stadium to talk STEM with students
