  • Republican Infighting Threatens GOP Chances In Georgia Senate Runoffs

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 21:06:00

    Updated at 10:42 a.m. ET Campaigning in Georgia's two Senate runoffs is well underway, but Republicans are still fighting over the state's November election and casting doubt on its voting system without evidence. The possible effect of the mixed messaging on Republican turnout in January is worrying some of Georgia's conservatives. The state's Republican election officials have repeatedly asserted there's been no evidence of widespread fraud. But incumbent Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler have called on Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to resign without evidence. President Trump has also criticized Raffensperger and called out Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, who received Trump's endorsement in 2018. "We could be handing [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer control of the Senate by the Republican disarray," conservative talk show host Erick Erickson said last week on WSB radio. "It's a little bit frustrating to see the Republicans squabbling with each

  • Biden Gains Votes In Recount Of Milwaukee County Requested By Trump

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 20:52:00

    President Trump's push to overturn the election results suffered another in a series of defeats on Friday — this time in Wisconsin, where officials in the state's most populous county announced that a recount had added to President-elect Joe Biden's lead. Albeit slightly: Out of the roughly 460,000 ballots cast in Milwaukee County, Biden made a net gain of 132 votes on review. The results offer unwelcome news for Trump, who lost to Biden in Wisconsin by roughly 20,000 votes and lost the national popular vote by more than 6 million . The Trump campaign paid the Wisconsin Elections Commission a fee of $3 million to proceed with recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties. The two counties, which together account for roughly a quarter of the state's population, swung heavily for Biden with 69% and 75% of the vote, respectively. Dane County is expected to wrap up its own recount by the end of the weekend . Trump and his allies have repeatedly and baselessly claimed that widespread fraud

  • COVID-19 Hits Hard For South Louisiana's Cajun Musicians

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 19:00:00

    Musicians—who depend on live audiences as much as they do—have been especially hard hit by the pandemic. Perhaps nowhere has this been felt more acutely than in South Louisiana where music lies at the heart of Cajun culture. They still gather on Saturday mornings at Marc Savoy's music store in the town of Eunice, amid the rice fields and crawfish farms in what's called Cajun prairie country. Musicians pull chairs into a circle—outside now because of the virus—to play the French Acadian ballads they learned from their grandparents. But the jam sessions have been diminished since four aged musicians—two fiddlers, a guitarist and a harmonica player—succumbed to COVID-19. "I was almost on the verge of cancelling the jam session because it's not the same ambience, it's not the same spirit anymore since these old-timers are gone," says Marc Savoy, one of the patriarchs of Cajun music. At 80 years old, he is still building accordions, playing them, and hosting the jams. "Cajun people have had

  • Pandemic Takes Toll On Children's Mental Health

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 18:00:00

    As a toddler, Kenley Gupta stopped speaking after her mom died. Over the years, she recovered from the anxiety disorder, called mutism, but in March the 8-year-old went silent again. The change occurred soon after her school shut down, and Kenley was shocked when her school closed. "I was really sad I couldn't see my friends," she said. She was normally a social butterfly and a good student. But after the pandemic forced the school to adopt full-time distance learning, Kenley often crumpled into a ball and hid under her blanket. She would clutch Green Guy, her favorite stuffed animal. Most of the time she refused to talk. The few words she did utter were expressed in Green Guy's cartoon voice. Instead of logging onto Zoom for classes, she spent much of the day gaming — glued to a hot pink iPad. She also stopped drawing and started to eat more. "There was a kind of almost compulsive snacking that I had never seen before," said Jay Gupta, Kenley's dad. As a single father, he's struggling

  • Provocation and Follow-Through: Julia Bullock Talks With Lara Downes

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 16:00:00

    Julia Bullock is an artist who dares you to find new adjectives. The soprano is often described as "radiant," an overused word that actually describes her surprisingly well. Onstage, she's a shapeshifter, ranging from elegant and commanding to bewitching, provocative and dangerous – but consistently intelligent and nuanced. Offstage, she can be goofy. Since its beginning, Julia's career has been on overdrive, with early awards from Young Concert Artists and the Naumburg Competition, launching a run of prestigious recital debuts that compelled the music world to pay close attention. Today, musical mavericks like conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen and composer John Adams create space and new work specifically for her. She's taken on the role of cultural tastemaker, with brilliantly crafted artist residencies at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and San Francisco Symphony. She leaves her audiences exalted, and inspires critics to ecstasies of praise. But what's most extraordinary about how Julia

  • 'World's Loneliest Elephant' Moving To Sanctuary, With Help From Cher

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 06:36:00

    Singer Cher was in Pakistan on Friday with a message for "the world's loneliest elephant": There is life after love. Kaavan the elephant has been languishing in poor conditions in Marghazar Zoo in Islamabad since 1985, according to the animal welfare group Four Paws International. He was brought there as a gift from Sri Lanka at 1 year old. Kaavan had a partner elephant, Saheli, who lived with him from 1990 to 2012. She died when an infection became gangrenous. A veterinarian with Four Paws told The Associated Press that Kaavan was heartbroken when she died. He's been alone ever since. On Sunday, Kaavan will move to an animal sanctuary in Cambodia, where he will be able to socialize with other elephants. Activists around the world, including local Pakistanis as well as Cher's charity, Free the Wild , have been campaigning for years for Kaavan's release. Cher wrote on Twitter that she met Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to thank him for making it possible to move the elephant. Cher

  • 'Voters, Not Lawyers, Choose The President': Trump Team Dealt Another Blow In Court

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 05:03:00

    The Trump legal team has suffered another loss in its continuing attempts to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential election. In a scathing opinion, a federal appeals court said Friday that a lower court acted properly when it threw out the Trump campaign's challenge to the certification of the election results in Pennsylvania. "Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy," wrote Judge Stephanos Bibas, a former member of the Federalist Society whom Trump nominated to the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017. "Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so." The ruling caps a tumultuous November for the Trump campaign, which has seen virtually every legal challenge to the outcome of the presidential election tossed by the courts. Friday's decision upholds last week's dismissal of Trump's bid to delay vote certification in the state. The Trump legal team has already signaled its intention to appeal the ruling to the U.S.

  • Top Iranian Nuclear Scientist Killed In Attack

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 02:56:00

    Updated at 6:54 a.m. ET Saturday A top Iranian scientist believed to be responsible for developing the country's military nuclear program was killed Friday, causing outrage in Iran and raising U.S. concerns over potential retaliation. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was in a vehicle that came under attack from "armed terrorists," Iran's Defense Ministry said in a statement . "In the shootout between Fakhrizadeh's bodyguards and the terrorists, the scientist was seriously wounded and taken to hospital," where the medical team was unable to save him and he succumbed to his injuries, it said. State media said the vehicle was traveling outside the capital, Tehran, when it came under attack. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but some senior Iranian officials said they believe Israel played a role. "Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Twitter. "This cowardice — with serious indications of Israeli role —

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: An assassination in Iran has the Middle East on edge. The man thought to be the head of Iran's former nuclear program was killed today in a drive-by shooting outside Tehran. On paper, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was an academic, a professor who taught at a university in Tehran. But intelligence services for the U.S. and Israel have said for years that was a cover story for his real work on Iran's nuclear program. Iran's foreign minister says he believes Israel was involved in today's killing. There has been no comment from Israel or the U.S. We're joined now by Ariane Tabatabai. She is a Middle East expert with the German Marshall Fund, a nonpartisan public policy think tank. Welcome back to the program. ARIANE TABATABAI: Thanks for having me again.

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: Iran's top nuclear scientist has been assassinated. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was killed today in a drive-by shooting outside Tehran. The West has long suspected him of leading Iran's secret nuclear weapons program, which was officially disbanded in the early 2000s. Iran's foreign minister has accused Israel of playing a role in the killing. NPR's Peter Kenyon is covering this story from Istanbul. Hi, Peter. PETER KENYON, BYLINE: Hi, Ari. SHAPIRO: First, tell us about the man who was assassinated. Who was he? KENYON: Well, Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was a prominent physicist at a university in Tehran, also seen as an important figure in Iran's nuclear program. He was once described as the man who would be known as the father of the Iranian bomb if Tehran ever succeeded in creating a nuclear weapon. Israel in particular has called him the head of Iran's nuclear weapons efforts. Fakhrizadeh has been targeted before, as several other Iranian

  • North Korea Executed Coronavirus Rule-Breaker, Says South Korean Intelligence

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 02:41:00

    North Korea is taking increasingly harsh measures to stop the coronavirus from entering the country, including executing an official in August who violated anti-virus rules, South Korean intelligence officials told lawmakers on Friday. In a closed-door briefing to a parliamentary intelligence committee on Friday, the officials told lawmakers that the executed North Korean had brought goods through customs in the city of Sinuiju on North Korea's border with China, in violation of coronavirus-related quarantine measures. North Korea also has locked down the capital, Pyongyang, and prohibited fishing and salt production in the ocean as part of its restrictions to block COVID-19, lawmakers cited the intelligence officials as saying. Lawmaker Ha Tae-keung, who is on the intelligence committee, told reporters after the briefing that North Korea has refused to take delivery of 110,000 tons of rice promised by China. The rice is sitting in northeastern China's port of Dalian, he said, because

  • Pandemic Renews Debate Over Drivers Licenses for Undocumented Workers

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 02:00:00

    Hailed as heroes during the pandemic, essential workers have cared for the elderly in nursing homes and kept food supplies moving from farms to supermarkets. But thousands of these workers are also undocumented immigrants facing this choice to keep their jobs: ride a crowded bus or drive without license. As COVID-19 cases surge and immigrant communities experience disproportionately higher rates of deaths and jobs losses, the debate about whether to allow undocumented immigrants in the state to get driver's licenses is heating up in Massachusetts and in states across the South and Midwest. Fifteen other states and D.C. have already changed their laws to allow undocumented immigrants to drive legally. Massachusetts is home to an estimated 185,000 undocumented immigrants, 70,000 of whom are expected to apply for a driver's license if the bill passes. "Many of these folks who have been hailed and praised are essential workers, whether they're in the grocery store or helping take care of

  • French Police Officers In Custody After Video Emerges Of Brutal Beating Of Black Man

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 01:48:00

    Four French police officers have been suspended and are in custody after a video that shows them brutally beating a Black man was posted online Thursday . The incident has provoked an outcry across France and comes as President Emmanuel Macron's government is trying to push through controversial legislation that would restrict the filming of police. Civic and journalist freedom groups oppose the bill , calling it a shield for brutality. Michel Zecler, a 41-year-old music producer, was not wearing a face mask — required under current COVID-19 measures — when police officers saw him walking in Paris last Saturday. As he tried to enter his music studio, the police officers pushed him through the doorway and pummeled him repeatedly with their fists and a billy club. The beating stopped when others in the building came to Zecler's aid, though police later threw a tear-gas canister through the window to force him to leave his studio and arrested Zecler and others. The police were unaware

  • Carol Burnett On Her Signature Ear Pull And Accessing A Wide Audience

    wuga.org Saturday, 28 November 2020 00:37:00

    DAVID BIANCULLI, BYLINE: This is FRESH AIR. I'm David Bianculli, editor of the website TV Worth Watching, sitting in for Terry Gross. "The Carol Burnett Show," one of TV's classic variety shows, ran on CBS from 1967 to 1978. In terms of musical variety, it's a significant chapter in TV history. Carol admired the work of Sid Caesar on TV's first great sketch series, "Your Show Of Shows," at the start of the '50s. By the end of the '50s, Carol was on TV herself as a supporting player on another very popular variety series, "The Garry Moore Show," which gave equal weight to comedy and music. And in 1967, she began hosting her own musical variety series on CBS at a time when even her own network had doubts that a woman could carry a variety show. But "The Carol Burnett Show" ran for 11 years and, for a time, was part of what's still thought of as the best night of television ever shown. It was a Saturday night lineup that began with "All In The Family" and "MASH," continued with "The Mary

  • A Garden Is The Frontline In The Fight Against Racial Inequality And Disease

    wuga.org Friday, 27 November 2020 20:13:00

    When police killed George Floyd outside a Minneapolis corner store, it reminded the world that racism can become lethal. But just a few miles away, on the north side of the city, racial inequality plays out in a more ordinary yet still harmful way: A lack of fresh food. Protests after Floyd's death damaged and shut down the only full-service grocery store within a 3-mile radius of North Minneapolis. For two months, what remained were dozens of fast food and convenience stores. Access to fresh food has been a struggle for decades, but now it's compounding the health effects of the pandemic. Chronic conditions like obesity, hypertension, and diabetes — all linked to a poor diet — are putting people at higher risk of serious illness and death from COVID-19. A group called Appetite for Change is trying to lead the community down a different path, teaching others to grow their way to healthy food. Co-founder Princess Haley, a teacher, says the mission is to improve the local diet. During

    wuga.org Friday, 27 November 2020 20:01:00

    Owen Pallett is someone whose creativity can seem... sort of unfathomable. The Canadian songwriter and musician has an incredibly impressive resume, which includes a Grammy win for work on the Arcade Fire album The Suburbs , and an Oscar nomination for the score of the film Her. And then there's Owen's own award-winning music, which delves into disarmingly personal subject matter as well as fantasy. Owen's latest album, Island, was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, and it returns to a fantasy realm called Spectrum – a place first introduced on Owen's earlier albums — and re-acquaints us with protagonists Lewis and Owen. In this session, you'll hear Owen perform music from that new album, as well as songs from throughout Owen's career. And if the list of accomplishments wasn't enough to blow you away, just wait. What you're going to hear are solo performances. Just Owen, using effects and looping to create layers of sound Copyright 2020 XPN. To see more, visit XPN .
