U-M research confirms racial bias in popular blood-oxygen reading technology

A U-M study led by Valeria Valbuena showed that pulse oximeters are less accurate for Black patients compared to non-Black patients, a reality with disproportionate racial consequences. “The issue is not difficult to solve at the technological level, rather it’s society standing in the way, and it’s hard to change the way things work,” she said. Valbuena is currently conducting further related research and hopes to attain more findings in the coming months.

Wolverines look to recover from Amy Dilk’s injury

Senior point guard Amy Dilk injured her knee at the women’s basketball senior opener Tuesday night, potentially upending the Wolverines’ season. For three consecutive seasons, Dilk led the team in assists, starting every game for which she was healthy. This Saturday’s game will reveal how well the Wolverines can perform without Dilk.

‘Eternals’: A beautiful, rare Marvel flick, equally awkward and audacious

Marvel’s new movie, ‘Eternals,’ follows the classic Marvel, end of the world story, with an extra dose of weirdness from creator Jack Kirby.

Art for art’s sake

Of apples and trees and Wolverines

It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine: Exploring the history of U-M’s mascot hesitancy

For Michigan women everywhere

Welcome to The Miseducation Project! Our goal is to redirect The Michigan Daily’s available resources to create a blog-style, multimedia interface. The project features student art — and artists — and themes of perseverance and celebration within traditionally marginalized student communities. This is intended to be a collaborative space, where our team works to provide you with adequate resources and a platform to execute a work, or works, of art. With this project, we hope to expand the lens of journalism, storytelling and digital access to art and artists. 

As we begin curating our next exhibit, loosely themed “Respiration,” we are opening submissions to artists who have completed works of art, or art projects they want to pursue. Click here to submit by Monday, Nov. 15.
