Colorful fall in store for Ohioans, says ODNR’s “fall color forester”

Leaf peepers should find a traditional color season this fall.

In a year in which so much has been canceled or postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ohio Department of Natural Resources Forester Jamie Regula said one thing is still certain: Fall is here, and the leaves are changing with it. 

Regula works most of the year as a state services forester, helping landowners manage their woodlands. But as autumn approached this year, Regula was bestowed the seasonal title of “Fall Color Forester.”

But what exactly does a Fall Color Forester do? And how do they predict how the leaves will change?

They look at lots and lots of data.

Any fall foliage predictions for a specific area begin with analyzing thousands of different data points on past weather conditions, average light exposure, latitude and altitude, and tree species.

Kamala Harris on the debate stage: Sight of pride and hope for women of color

On Wednesday night, the American people heard a debate and not a shoutfest. Pundits called it a return to traditional debate, but for millions of women of color, it was anything but that. Sen. Kamala Harris, a Californian whose family story includes both Black and South Asian roots, took a place on a stage that had, until now, been reserved almost exclusively for white men.

We do not agree with everything that was said on Wednesday’s stage. Our own vision of justice, dignity, and equity may not align precisely with anyone on the national ticket. We cannot, however, allow these differences to obscure what should be celebrated, not just by South Asian and Black women, but by the entire country.

Regardless of one’s personal politics, South Asians took pride in seeing one of our own on a national ticket. When Harris shared her family’s migration story, we saw our own

As the scholarship’s site explains, the fund was largely created in response to the continued underrepresentation and disadvantages

Megan Thee Stallion Scholarship for Women of Color Announced

Megan Thee Stallion is giving away scholarships to women of color in any field of study.

The artist shared the announcement via Twitter on Thursday morning. “2020 has brought so many obstacles, but we keep going,” the statement read. “Megan has partnered with Amazon Music’s rap rotation and will award two $10,000 scholarships to women of color that are pursuing an associates, bachelors or post-graduate degree in any field of study.”

Shortly after the announcement was made, the application portal crashed due to overwhelming interest. The server has yet to be recovered as of Thursday afternoon.

Megan’s most recent performance was on last weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” during which she voiced opposition to Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron’s handling of the Breonna Taylor case.

During a performance of her hit “Savage,” the music paused while quotes from Malcolm X and activist Tamika Mallory played saying, “Daniel Cameron is no different

Charting relic Biden’s low opinion of women and people of color

With all the news that is always breaking, very often some of the more important events and information fly under the radar.

Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden has reaped the benefits of a legacy media that is working overtime to protect him from any inquiry or oversight into his behavior and comments, amusingly referred to as “gaffes.” But the bizarre and inappropriate remarks aren’t exclusively the result of cognitive decline; rather he is also a living example of the sort of person who thrived in the destructive and bureaucratic monstrosity in Washington, D.C., which has no standards and dispenses no repercussions.

This matters especially now as the swamp would prefer we not remember how they abused us as we head to Nov. 3. Unfortunately for them, Mr. Biden’s attitude and remarks do remind us, and they’re nothing new. His entire political career has been peppered

Kamala Harris walked a fine line familiar to many women of color during the debate

In a vice presidential debate marked by at least some adherence to the rules, Sen. Kamala Harris found it necessary to ask Vice President Mike Pence not to interrupt her multiple times. She reminded him — sometimes with a hand up, crossing guard-style, other times with raised eyebrows — “Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking.”

At other moments as Pence spoke, Harris’ face flashed a catalogue of looks in his direction that seemed to communicate irritation, disbelief and distaste all at once, the kind of repertoire developed when one often cannot say everything one thinks.

Throughout, Harris worked to claim, then hold, new ground.

Harris, the first woman to serve as California’s attorney general, is the first woman of color to run on a major party’s presidential ticket and therefore the first to appear in a vice presidential debate. She arrived Wednesday with a complex set of challenges, expectations and demands.
