Maryland – A tobacco pipe was found along the Generals Highway and it can be helpful to know about the African ancestors who had lived the slave life in Anne Arundel. Archaeologists from the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration found four more clay tobacco pipe stems in the slave quarter at Belvoir and they sent the pipe stems for DNA test in a lab at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
The pipe stems were tested in the lab and doctors identified a woman’s ancient DNA on one of the stems. But the DNA was degraded enough to prevent any conclusion of linking to living descendants. A doctor at the University of Copenhagen also tested the pipe stems and found that the woman could be related to Mende people living in present day Sierra Leone in West Africa. This is the first time scientists have proved human DNA from a 200 year old tobacco pipe stem and they connected the DNA with the ancient people.
It is a new way to get DNA from archaeological sites that nobody has dreamed of yet. There are several best tobacco pipes available in the market and these clay pipe stems are the part of them. A lot of slaves didn’t have names recorded and now this is a good opportunity to know about their origin and families.
Dr. Ripan Malhi, head of an ancient DNA (aDNA) laboratory at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, said that they often study human skeletal every time they find one and it is a good opportunity to recover DNA from few hundred years old tobacco pipes.
Donald Trump Once Again Attacks China for Spreading COVID-19
The US President Donald Trump has once again attacked China for the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Calling COVID-19 “a plague from China”, the US president has said that the coronavirus pandemic should not have happened. And China must have taken necessary actions to control it within its territory.
In addition to this, Trump has said that the US had just signed a big trade deal with China and soon COVID-19 started spreading. Due to this, the relations between the US and China are going through the worst phase of all time. And there is no scope of improvement in the near future.
Donald Trump raised his voice against China during the “Spirit of America Showcase” in the Grand Foyer of the White House. Recently, the US president also decided to make July “Pledge to America’s Workers Month by signing a proclamation.
The US is the worst affected country in the world due to COVID-19 and different states in the country are witnessing a hike in the number of COVID-19 cases. Things are not settling well since the states have announced their reopening. Many public health experts have already issued a warning about the jump in the coronavirus cases that different US states could see in the future.
It is not for the first time that Trump has attacked China for the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the world. He had also done it a couple of times in the past. And earlier, many Asian-American had reacted to his act of blaming China for COVID-19 without any solid proof.
