Donald Trump Resignation Washington Post

Washington DC – The Washington Post edition, dated May 1, 2019 was distributed free of cost few days back, targeting the Donald Trump resignation. It was distributed on the streets of Washington DC and the areas near White House. All of this took place on Wednesday, January 16, 2019.

The front page headline, spread over 6 columns, shouted resignation of Donald Trump. The headline read – “UNPRESIDENTED Trump hastily departs White House, ending crisis”. Along with that, the column on the left side of the news read, “Celebrations break out worldwide as Trump era ends”.

This fake imitation of real Washington Post newspaper was circulated all around the town, which was put out by “Yes Men”, a satirical group in Washington. Though the newspaper authorities cleared out that the distributed edition was fake and The Washington Post has nothing to do with it. But the newspaper surely spread a wave of uproar all over the city.

According to the newspaper, the story said that Donald Trump resignation took place on April 30, 2019, where Trump abandoned the White House. The whole edition was filled with anti Trump stories and a guide to bringing Trump down.

All of this came as a protest against Donald Trump administration, where the government offices and other authorities were paralyzed for many weeks, thereby hindering the paychecks as well. On getting deep into the matter, it came into the light that the people behind this fake edition were a group of activists who claimed that this was a collaborative project.

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.
