  • PSE&G Working To Restore Power After Isaias

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 05:10:23

    Tropical Storm Isaias left its mark on New Jersey. More than half a million customers of PSE&G were left in the dark. Chief Operating Officer Kim Hanemann says they’re calling for help from all over. “We have been reaching out throughout the country,” she said, “as far away as Canada, Missouri, and Florida for contractors and crews to assist us in the restoration and we continue to reach out to increase those resources to help us restore more quickly.” Hanemann said it could be Monday before everyone has power back. She said 85% of customers may be restored by Friday. She said the storm ranks right up there with Hurricanes Floyd and Irene in terms of the damage it caused. But she did point to one bright spot. “I can say our inside plant, our substations, fared this storm much better than it did back with Floyd,” she said, “but it was a significant, significant storm for us.” Hanemann said the COVID protocols the utility has in place may slow things down, but they are necessary.

  • New Director of Newark Public Library Takes On Challenges of Pandemic

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 04:46:06

    The Newark Public Library has a new director -- Joslyn Bowling Dixon, fresh from a job as deputy director of the Prince William Library System in Virginia, outside DC. Dixon recognizes the challenges of taking over a public institution during a pandemic, but got excited about the possibilities anyway. “I got that little spiny tingle when I saw it (the job posting). I really liked what the city was about,” she said. “It made me go look at some further research into the renaissance of the community and the great things that are happening in terms of industry and construction.” She says she was attracted to the job by the state’s commitment to libraries. “New Jersey has a state, you know, there’s a state mandate for library services,” she noted, “all states don’t have that so just knowing that that support is there I think that’ll go a long way in getting us through this pandemic and the challenges financially that we’re gonna face.” Dixon says one of the first orders of business will be

  • New York And Connecticut Call For Probes Into Utility Companies' Response To Isaias

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 04:38:00

    The governors of New York and Connecticut are launching investigations into utility companies' response to Tropical Storm Isaias, which tore through the Northeast on Tuesday and left thousands of households without power one day later. Each governor has also declared a state of emergency in order to expedite support for local governments. Connecticut's applies statewide, while New York's specifically includes 11 counties and three others that border them. Cuomo said on Wednesday afternoon that more than 703,000 New Yorkers remained without power in the aftermath of Isaias, which caused a peak of more than 920,000 power outages statewide. Utilities have deployed 7,000 workers to help respond to the damage and restore service, according to the governor's office. Cuomo said that "due to the apparent lack of adequate planning by utility companies," he has directed the Department of Public Service to launch an investigation into the responses by Verizon, PSEG Long Island, Con Edison,

  • Louisiana Supreme Court Won't Review Life Sentence For Man Who Stole Hedge Clippers

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 04:24:00

    A Louisiana man will continue to spend his life in prison for stealing a pair of hedge clippers, after the state's Supreme Court denied his request to review a lower court's sentence. Fair Wayne Bryant was convicted in 1997 of stealing the hedge clippers. Prosecutors pursued and won a life sentence in the case, a penalty permissible under the state's habitual offender law. Bryant appealed the life sentence as too severe. Chief Justice Bernette Johnson was the sole dissenter in the court's decision last week, writing that Bryant's sentence is "excessive and disproportionate to the offense" — and that it was costing the state a lot of money to keep him imprisoned. "Since his conviction in 1997, Mr. Bryant's incarceration has cost Louisiana taxpayers approximately $518,667," she wrote. "Arrested at 38, Mr. Bryant has already spent nearly 23 years in prison and is now over 60 years old. If he lives another 20 years, Louisiana taxpayers will have paid almost one million dollars to punish Mr

  • Charts: How The U.S. Ranks On COVID-19 Deaths Per Capita — And By Case Count

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 04:15:00

    During an interview that aired on Axios on HBO on Monday night, President Trump was interviewed by journalist Jonathan Swan. One of the topics: the number of deaths in the U.S. from COVID-19. Swan noted that there are about 1,000 deaths a day in the United States. Trump responded that the U.S. "is lowest in numerous categories" when it comes to the pandemic — including "case death." This measure, which epidemiologists call the "case fatality ratio," calculates the number of people with COVID-19 who eventually die from the disease. Swan interjected, "I'm talking about death as a proportion of population. That's where the U.S. is really bad, much worse than South Korea, Germany, et cetera." Trump replied: "You can't do that." Loading... As Swan noted during the interview, you can in fact calculate the per capita death rate for a country's population — that is, the number of deaths per 100,000 people. But it is difficult to compare death rates among countries. Neither per capita death

  • Parks In Nonwhite Areas Are Half The Size Of Ones In Majority-White Areas, Study Says

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 04:07:00

    In the midst of another hot summer and an ongoing pandemic, public parks are vital refuge. But a new study has found that access to parks in the U.S. differs sharply according to income and race. A study published by The Trust for Public Land found that parks serving primarily nonwhite populations are, on average, half the size of parks that serve majority-white populations, and are potentially five times more crowded. The data showed that parks serving mostly low-income households are, on average, four times smaller — and potentially four times more crowded — than parks that serve mostly high-income households. As temperatures rise due to climate change, spaces to escape from the heat can be a matter of life and death. Heat waves kill more people in the U.S. than any other extreme weather event, including hurricanes, tornadoes or floods. More than 65,000 people visit an emergency room for heat-related illness each year, and an average of more than 700 people die of heat-related causes

  • Colombia's Ex-President Uribe Is Put Under House Arrest, Catches Coronavirus

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 03:49:00

    It's been a rough two days for former Colombian President Álvaro Uribe, one of the country's most influential politicians. Uribe has gone from kingmaker to detainee after the country's Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered that he be placed under house arrest . Then, on Wednesday, Colombian media reported that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. The surprising court decision, which the Bogotá newspaper El Tiempo described as "colossally important," came as the court investigates whether Uribe had a role in a scheme to bribe witnesses in a convoluted legal case involving former members of right-wing paramilitary death squads. One of Uribe's lawyers, Jaime Granados, insisted that his client is innocent. "Uribe has played a central role in Colombia over the past 20 years, and has greatly determined who holds power," said Sergio Guzmán, director of the Bogotá consultancy Colombia Risk Analysis. "This is why it is such a significant case." Uribe's allies were outraged by the court's

  • Fauci Reveals He Has Received Death Threats And His Daughters Have Been Harassed

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 03:43:00

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday that he has received death threats and his daughters have been harassed as a result of his high-profile statements about the coronavirus pandemic. "Getting death threats for me and my family and harassing my daughters to the point where I have to get security is just, I mean, it's amazing," Fauci said. Fauci, who plays a key role on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, didn't reveal any more details about the threats and harassment. But he said he and his wife, and his three daughters, who live in three separate cities, are weathering the stress. "I wish that they did not have to go through that," Fauci said. He made his comments Wednesday during an online forum sponsored by Harvard University that CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta moderated. Fauci has led the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984 and has advised six presidents on matters of public health. In recent months, he has sometimes made statements that have contradicted

  • CSU Investigating Report Of Failure To Disclose COVID-19 Symptoms In Football Players

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 03:36:00

    Colorado State is investigating its football department, the university announced in a press release, following reports that coaches in the program had attempted to coerce players out of reporting possible symptoms of the coronavirus and warned the team against submitting themselves to self quarantine. Following a story first published in the Coloradoan , officials at CSU said on Tuesday they were taking "extremely seriously" the accusations that football coaches had threatened students with reduced field time and had also attempted to manipulate contact tracing efforts to avoid having to remove players from practice. "An article published today reports some extremely serious and deeply troubling allegations about how CSU Athletics is handling public health precautions surrounding COVID-19. Quoting several student athletes and members of the Athletics staff, the story raises concerns about whether the health and well-being of our student athletes is truly the top priority of Colorado

  • Virginia Unveils App To Aid Contact Tracing

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 03:14:00

    Virginia is rolling out a new app designed to aid in contact tracing during the coronavirus pandemic. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said COVIDWISE is the first statewide app to use technology developed for the purpose by Google and Apple . It relies on Bluetooth technology that can notify users if they may have been exposed to someone with the coronavirus. "We know people are contagious before they show symptoms. This can really help us catch new cases early before they spread as far," Northam said during a press conference on Wednesday. COVIDWISE – which state officials stress is an "exposure notification" app, not an app for direct contact tracing – allows users to voluntarily and anonymously report positive COVID-19 test results, and alert other app users who've been near them. Rather than tracking users' identity and location, Virginia officials say, the Bluetooth technology creates anonymous "tokens," or random sequences of numbers, and exchanges them with other nearby users.

  • NYC To Implement COVID Checkpoints As Indoor Venues Remain Shuttered

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 03:12:56

    New York authorities are ramping up enforcement of the out of state quarantine rules by doing checkpoints at key city entry areas. Sheriff Joe Fucito says his members will be at bridges, tunnels and transit hubs to flag down and get information from those coming from the 35 states or territories with high coronavirus transmission rates. “Compliance with the quarantine is our objective and checkpoints are an effective means of ensuring travelers are on notice.” Mayor de Blasio admits it’s hard to enforce the 14 day out of state quarantine “We’re ya know not going to be in everyone’s apartment monitoring them.” But he adds the checkpoints will be a reminder of the rules “We gotta be aggressive about getting the word out. We got to make clear to people there are consequences.” It doesn’t appear certain indoor businesses will be reopening for a while in New York City because of coronavirus concerns. Mayor de Blasio says New York City is not ready for indoor dining, gyms and malls to reopen

  • Helen Jones Woods, Groundbreaking Female Trombonist, Has Died From COVID-19

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 03:09:17

    Helen Jones Woods, who played trombone with the International Sweethearts of Rhythm, a history-making all-female big band that toured widely during World War II, died of COVID-19 on July 25 in Sarasota, Fla. She was 96. Her daughter Cathy Hughes, founder and chairperson of the broadcast media company Urban One, confirmed the details of her death to NPR. In addition to their pioneering role as women on the jazz circuit, the International Sweethearts of Rhythm were an interracial band in the era of Jim Crow. Their extensive itinerary through the South, where they traveled by sleeper bus, reportedly inspired jazz piano giant Earl Hines to call them "the first Freedom Riders." They also toured Europe, playing in occupied Germany for American soldiers — both white and Black, though not at the same time. As a Black musician, Woods endured mistreatment and indignity on the road. "Music broke her heart," says Hughes. "In the '30s and '40s, and even the '50s, which was the last time she played,

  • GOP Lawsuit Over N.J.'s $9.9B Borrowing Plan Goes Before State Supreme Court

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 02:42:50

    The New Jersey Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday in a case about whether Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration should be allowed to borrow as much as $9.9 billion in response to revenue shortfalls caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The lawsuit pits the Democratic governor and top Democratic state lawmakers against the state’s Republican party and several Republican legislators, who sued to block a plan they say would permit the administration to borrow for expenses unrelated to the pandemic and saddle future generations with a mountain of debt. “Obviously COVID-19 has been a disaster that’s been felt worldwide, nationwide, statewide,” said state Sen. Michael Testa, R-Cape May, an attorney for the plaintiffs. “That doesn’t give the authority to our governor and the Legislature to essentially write a blank check to be used for anything.” At issue is whether the plan, approved by the Democrat-controlled Legislature and signed by Murphy last month, qualifies as emergency borrowing under

  • UConn Huskies Football Season Canceled Over Coronavirus Risks

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 02:25:00

    The University of Connecticut Department of Athletics on Wednesday announced it was canceling its football program for the 2020-21 school year because of the coronavirus pandemic. "After receiving guidance from state and public health officials and consulting with football student-athletes, we've decided that we will not compete on the gridiron this season," UConn Director of Athletics David Benedict said. "The safety challenges created by COVID-19 place our football student-athletes at an unacceptable level of risk." The team is the first in the Football Bowl Subdivision to cancel its season as a result of the virus, ESPN reports . "The necessary measures needed to mitigate risk of football student-athletes contracting the coronavirus are not conducive to delivering an optimal experience for our team," Benedict said. "Ultimately, the student-athletes would rather preserve their year of eligibility with an eye to competing under more typical circumstances during the 2021 season." In a

  • Bon Iver Collaborates With Bruce Springsteen, Hints At New Album

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 02:11:00

    YouTube Back in April, during the early days of COVID-19, Bon Iver dropped a seemingly free-standing single called " PDLIF " — with its title doubling as an acronym for "Please Don't Live in Fear." With its themes of unity and hope, the song felt very of-the-moment. Given that Bon Iver typically takes three to five years between albums, and that i,i came out just last year, "PDLIF" seemed to be a one-off, with proceeds going to charity. Now, Bon Iver just dropped another free-standing single with an acronym for a title: "AUATC," which stands for "Ate Up All Their Cake." Released with a press statement critiquing capitalism — as if the title weren't making that clear enough — the song features a throng of singers that includes not only Vernon, but also Elsa Jensen, Jenny Lewis, Bruce Springsteen and Jenn Wasner. Which means, among other things, that Justin Vernon has now appeared on songs with Taylor Swift and Bruce Springsteen in successive months. With its roughly two-minute running

  • 'Sick To My Core': Aurora, Colo., Chief Apologizes After Black Family Is Handcuffed

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 02:01:00

    The police chief in Aurora, Colo., has apologized after officers handcuffed children and reportedly drew their weapons on a Black family — an incident captured on video this week that renewed criticism the department is racially insensitive and disconnected from its community. A woman and four girls were wrongly detained, police later acknowledged. "I want to reach out and just tell the family I am terribly sorry. I am sick to my core that these children were traumatized the way they were," Chief Vanessa Wilson said in an interview Tuesday with NPR member station KUNC . Police said officers approached Brittney Gilliam's car under the belief that it had been reported stolen. Gilliam was taking her daughter, 6, and her sister, 12, and two nieces, ages 14 and 17, to get their nails done at a salon Sunday morning. When police approached, they were sitting in a parking lot where the salon is located. The car had not been stolen – but before police made that determination, officers

  • Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin Explains The 'Tragedy' Of The Mueller Investigation

    wbgo.org Thursday, 6 August 2020 00:46:00

    Six months after the conclusion of President Trump's impeachment , CNN legal analyst and New Yorker staff writer Jeffrey Toobin says special counsel Robert Mueller 's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election was fundamentally flawed. "The tragedy of the Mueller investigation is they did this brilliant investigation proving that Donald Trump repeatedly obstructed justice — far worse than Richard Nixon did in Watergate, far worse than Bill Clinton did in the Lewinsky matter ," Toobin argues. "But then he doesn't finish the job and say what is obvious." Toobin says that Mueller's decision to conclude his report without explicitly stating that the president had obstructed of justice left the door open for Trump to claim he had done nothing wrong — despite evidence to the contrary. "When he told the FBI director not to investigate Michael Flynn , when he tried to get his White House counsel to fire Mueller , when he told his White House counsel to lie about whether he
