    Feb 27, 2023

  • Minnesota budget surplus: Spend every penny (and then some)

    Feb 27, 2023

    This week, Minnesota budget authorities will release their semiannual update on the state's finances. Barring major surprises, it will show that Minnesota has a considerable surplus. The announcement will renew an 18-month-old debate about what to do with the funds.

    Feb 27, 2023

    When Joe Bendickson was growing up, first on the Lake Traverse Reservation near the Minnesota-South Dakota border and then in St. Paul, he did not speak Dakota, his ancestral tongue. Few did.

As he grew older, he became more interested in his ancestry as a member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate tribe. He asked...

  • On Ukraine front, civilians cling on as troops repel Russia

    Feb 27, 2023

    VUHLEDAR, Ukraine — The murky water oh so slowly trickles from the filthy drainpipe into her grimy container — the ticking seconds ramping up the risk that Emilia Budskaya could lose life or limb to Russian artillery strikes torturing her front-line town in eastern Ukraine. Gaping gashes from shrapnel in the courtyard walls around her testify to the dangers of venturing outside — exposed and without the body armor that Ukrainian soldiers defending Vuhledar wear when they emerge from their bunkers. But Budskaya and her daughter need water...

  • Deepfake porn, election misinfo would be crime under Minnesota bill

    Feb 27, 2023

    ST. PAUL — These days the internet is rife with “deepfakes,” artificial intelligence-generated video and sound, often of well-known people doing and saying things they’ve never done. The technology has been around for a while, but in the past year it has proliferated on a scale never seen before.

Assigned to the so-called security shack for the American Indian Movement leaders who had occupied the town, she would pray and remember the ceremonies when the firefights erupted. “To be in a situation where the United States government was firing upon us with artillery, with automatic weaponry, with gas, you can't describe it,” she said. “It's like an altered state, that you are at war … And all you...
