Federal forces kept some of this racial terror in check, but not all of it. And white Republican leaders occasionally bowed to the violence out of political expedience. In the 1876 presidential election, 19 electoral votes in three Southern states were disputed and accompanied by voter intimidation and widespread voter fraud. In South Carolina, according to the University of Virginia historian Michael F. Holt’s book “By One Vote,” voter turnout was an absurd 101 percent.

In one of their few prescient moves of 2020, hedge funds backed off from the summer’s hottest trade and went bargain hunting, just in time for a revival in value stocks. Hedge funds were “indiscriminate” sellers during the February-March drawdown, dumping about $100 billion of stock during the stretch, or 4.4% of their assets under management, according to researchers at the University of Virginia and the University of Zurich. Then, as airlines, hotels and restaurants bounced back violently, they kept their exposure near multiyear lows, according to brokerage data.

Hearts donated by severely obese donors aren't more risky for recipients than hearts from people who aren't obese, a new study indicates. "These findings were somewhat surprising because the severely obese donors did tend to have more medical problems, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, than the non-obese donors," said study author Dr. Leora Yarboro. She's an associate professor of surgery at the University of Virginia, in Charlottesville.

“Transplantation of hearts from obese individuals and utilization of oversized hearts have both been associated with no increase in adverse outcomes and represent a promising, safe way to increase the donor pool,” Elizabeth D.

The NRCC on Monday added him to the top tier of its Young Guns program for strong candidates. Kyle Kondik, communications director at the University of Virginia Center for Politics, said the investment from the NRCC is a sign that national Republicans are worried about the race, but as long as Trump carries the district by a substantial margin, Good will likely come out ahead. “The danger for Good is that the district is closer at the presidential level and he underperforms,” Kondik said.

Last week, Sabato's Crystal Ball, the weekly politics newsletter published by Larry J. Sabato of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics, became the latest political handicapper to move the Ohio-1 race from Leans Republican to Toss Up. Kyle Kondik, an Ohio native who is managing editor of Sabato's Crystal Ball, says there was no specific news peg for changing the race's status. It was just a general feeling that Schroder was doing better as a candidate, he said.

With Albemarle County’s “Johnny Reb” statue gone, activists have returned their attention to five other local monuments they say are “symbols of oppression.” “This is one object that needs to be removed,” Charlottesville activist Don Gathers said Saturday morning, as he watched crews work to take down the monument formally known as “At Ready” from the Albemarle County Circuit Courthouse lawn. “There are still five more.” The owners of those five monuments — the city of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia — have plans to either remove or make changes to each of them.

But to Anne Coughlin, a criminal law professor at the University of Virginia who specializes in feminist jurisprudence, that strategy may be a tough sell to jurors, mostly because Holmes was a dynamic, highly functional advocate for her company. "To the world, she was presenting herself as educated, self-possessed and affluent," Coughlin said.
