Jessica Looman is feeling pretty good about the state of solar energy in Minnesota.

What's got the state commerce commissioner "walking on sunshine"?

Minnesota's solar capacity between 2015 and 2016 grew almost three times - to put that in perspective, the 476 megawatts added in 2017 is enough electricity to power 53,000 more homes.

Add to that declining prices, increased consumer demand and 57,000 clean energy jobs in the state, Minnesotans may be inclined to quote Timbuk 3 from back in the day: "The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades".

Many of the speakers at the Twin Ports 2018 Women's March wanted to see more inclusivity in the community and in organizing around issues of feminism and social justice.

  Trans Plus took them at their word, and the result is a joint panel discussion and community conversation tonight at the Prøve Collective.

March is Women's History month and at the American Indian Community Housing Organization, they are celebrating in a big way.

For some, it was an emotional homecoming to a venue that hosted some of the most memorable moments from Duluth's music and arts scene from the '90s to the mid-2000s. For others, it was a first chance to experience music in one of Duluth's last remaining historic  theaters.

This week on Student Views host Pavel Arkhipenkov shares the journey he began ago when he started this radio project on KUMD. The experience of bringing international student experiences to the air includes himself. Listen for more about Russian-born, UMD student, Pavel Arkhipenkov.
