What happens to animals burned by wildfires?

The Capital Region Rundown: A policy development leader gets real about institutional racism, a mill gets money, animals burned by wildfire get groundbreaking treatments & more

Oh, hello! Welcome back to the real world, i.e. the work week after a long weekend.

Our stories over the past week have answered many questions (some more obscure than others), such as: What healing material do researchers use to patch over the burns of animals caught in wildfires? What does the A in STEAM stand for? What’s one factor that led an artisan flour business to receive over $115,000 in investment? How do we go beyond inclusion and diversity to create more meaningful equity in the workplace? 

The answers to which are: tilapia skin, art, small business bonds and lastly — by intentionally creating an atmosphere of belonging. Need a little more context? Here’s the latest:

The Metro EDGE Young Professional of the Year shares her thoughts on equity in our latest Getting to Know; Capital Region researchers, veterinarians and advocates are finding innovative ways to rehabilitate wildlife burned by California’s raging wildfires; our editor-at-large checks in with Capay Mills on its recent entry into an investment marketplace; proponents of STEAM programs advocate for the arts as a builder of emotional intelligence, social awareness and even problem-solving capabilities.

Don’t forget to subscribe to the magazine to stay up to date on the region’s business trends, and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for daily stories and extras.

Can adding art to STEM help resurrect a struggling education system?

While STEM education incorporates science, technology, engineering and math, STEAM adds arts into the mix. Proponents of STEAM say it develops creativity that bridges the sciences with the development of personal expression, emotional intelligence and social awareness: the human factors that define how we relate to the world.
