‘Count Every Vote’ rally held at University of Michigan Diag

ANN ARBOR, MI — As votes were still being counted and the results of the 2020 presidential election slowly trickled in, residents and activists came together in Ann Arbor Wednesday evening to advocate for counting every vote.

We Make Michigan, a coalition of grassroots organizations, neighborhood groups, labor unions and communities who are working together to make sure every vote is counted, held a rally at the University of Michigan Diag Wednesday, as well as rallies in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Traverse City.

In Ann Arbor, several community groups also attended the event, including the Washtenaw Action Council, Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, Sunrise Ann Arbor and Huron Valley Democratic Socialists Organization.

With so many groups, it was important for everyone to have their voices heard and votes counted, according to UM senior Amytess Girgis.

“We’re hoping to emphasize that Michiganders have put a lot of effort into

A woman’s place? Out hunting with spears, study finds

A new study says a woman’s place might never have been at home to begin with.

Scientists said Wednesday they had discovered the 9,000-year-old remains of a young woman in the Peruvian Andes alongside a well-stocked big game hunting toolkit.

Based on a further analysis of 27 individuals at burial sites with similar tools, a team led by Randall Haas at the University of California, Davis concluded that between 30 to 50 percent of hunters in the Americas during this period may have been women.

The paper, published in the journal Science Advances, contradicts the prevalent notion that in hunter-gatherer societies, the hunters were mainly men and the gatherers were mainly women.

“I think it tells us that for at least some portion of human prehistory, that assumption was inaccurate,” Haas told AFP.

He added that the results “highlight the disparities in labor practice today, in terms of things like

White House taps mainstream climate scientist Betsy Weatherhead to run key report

Weatherhead, who has decades of experience as a climate scientist in the academic and private sectors, accepts human-induced climate change is happening and is a serious physical, ecological and economic threat.

Her appointment stands in sharp contrast to two recent high-level political hires at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), David Legates and Ryan Maue, who are on the record challenging the seriousness of climate change. It also is in contrast to the climate change views of President Trump, who downplays humans’ role in causing global warming, despite the scientific consensus on the topic.

Weatherhead’s appointment was verified by one current and one former senior official at NOAA. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity, because they were not authorized to speak on the matter.

Unlike several past climate assessment directors, she has not previously held a position in the federal government but has worked extensively with scientists and

Clemson University Works to Identify 604 Unmarked Graves in Campus Cemetery


Clemson University is working to learn the identities of those buried in 604 unmarked graves on its campus’ Woodland Cemetery, Greenville News reported.

Woodland Cemetery

The graves may date back more than 200 years ago and may belong to “enslaved peoples, domestic workers, sharecroppers and convict laborers who lived, worked and died on the university’s land in the 1800s,” Greenville News reported.

According to Clemson, the sites are equal in number to the known gravesites.

“Long before a university or a college campus community, this place was an African American community,” University Historian Paul Anderson said.

“So if you’re looking at a burial ground that might have been in use as early as that era (1810), then extended its use for another century, the notion of 600 graves somehow becomes more manageable,” Anderson said.

With surveying mostly done, Anderson will now go through archives and
