Protesters hold up photos of State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, de facto leader of Myanmar, at the embassy in neighboring Thailand. In a bloodless coup, the military of Myanmar—the Tatmadaw—overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi and the civilian government following a decisive loss in the national elections, which it declared fraudulent. The events represent a culmination of Myanmar’s fall from grace over the past few years; formerly welcomed as a democratic experiment, the country has since been plagued by ethnic conflict with a systematic genocide against its Rohingya minority.

President-elect Joe Biden (pictured) delivers his victory address from Wilmington, Delaware. In a historic victory over incumbent president Donald Trump, Biden won  the largest popular vote count ever in an election with sky-high turnout on both sides. Rather than a revolutionary beginning to a new era, Bidens win seems to signal more of a return to normalcy, an end of an era rather than the dawn of a new one.

Vincent Jiang, Holly Branco, Liam Doherty, James Flanagan, Jack Greer, Rayna Katz, Joshua Kearstan, Justin Lee, and Emily Taylor November 2, 2020
As the nation prepares for a big day ahead, we questioned our students. Here's the results of The Paw's schoolwide poll for the 2020 Presidential Election.
At the final presidential debate of the 2020 campaign, President Donald Trump (left) sparred energetically with former Vice President Joe Biden (right), though the introduction of a new mute button kept the crosstalk which had plagued the last debate to a minimum. In the final stretches of the campaign, Trump sought to rebrand himself, promising economic recovery and a swift end to the pandemic. Biden, on the other hand, made several progressive policy commitments in immigration and climate change, a departure from his generally risk-averse strategy.

Vice-presidential nominees Senator Kamala Harris (left, D-CA) and incumbent Vice President Mike Pence (right, R-IN) square off at the first and only vice-presidential debate. In many ways, the debate reflected a throwback to the past, featuring a veneer of civility that is distinctly unfamiliar in the Trump era. Yet the two candidates, in many ways both better representatives of their parties’ bases than their respective running mates, are also clearly padding their resumes for their own future presidential ambitions; they could very well be facing a rematch four years later.
