  • Army Chaplain's Remains Identified After 70 years

    wuwm.com Sunday, 7 March 2021 08:12:00

    Department of Defense investigators have identified the remains of U.S. Army chaplain and Catholic priest Emil Kapaun among the unknown Korean War soldiers buried at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Hawaii. It's been a long journey home for the Kansas native who was imprisoned in Korea more than 70 years ago. Former President Barack Obama told Kapaun's story in 2013. It was Nov. 2, 1950, when Kapaun's unit came under heavy fire from Chinese forces near Unsan in present-day North Korea and received orders to withdraw. Only a quarter of the unit's soldiers were able to get out. The others, including many wounded soldiers, were trapped. Obama described Kapaun racing "between foxholes, out past the front lines and into no-man's land — dragging the wounded to safety." Kapaun was captured and taken to a Chinese-run prison camp. He continued to minister to other prisoners and sacrificed for their well-being, Obama said. Kapaun contracted dysentery and then pneumonia in prison.

  • Biden Praises Senate Passage Of 'Desperately Needed' COVID-19 Relief Bill

    wuwm.com Sunday, 7 March 2021 05:49:00

    In remarks after a divided Senate approved his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan, President Biden praised lawmakers for securing the additional round of aid and thanked the American people for making it possible through their "overwhelming bipartisan support." The "American Rescue Plan" has been a priority of the Biden administration, and is poised to deliver a fresh round of financial assistance to individuals, families, schools and businesses hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic. Measures include $1,400 direct payments, an extension of supplemental unemployment benefits, an increase to the child tax credit and financial support for state and local governments, schools and public health efforts. "When we took office 45 days ago, I promised the American people that help was on the way," Biden said. "Today, I can say we've taken one more giant step forward in delivering on that promise." The Senate approved the package on Saturday afternoon, by a 50-49 party-line vote that did not

    Copyright 2021 NPR. To see more, visit MICHEL MARTIN, HOST: Finally today, so you might not be surprised that a record titled "Preacher's Kid" by a musician whose father was a pastor would take the top spot on the iTunes Christian album chart. That happened last month with the new album by Grace Semler Baldrige, who performs as Semler. But the lyrics on that album tell a different story than the one you might be expecting. (SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "JESUS FROM TEXAS") SEMLER: (Singing) My mom turned 18 in the 1960s, and she doesn't remember Stonewall. MARTIN: In "Preacher's Kid," Semler explores faith and church life through a queer lens, everything from the meaning of the gospel and activism to what really happens at youth group. And Semler is with us now to talk about "Preacher's Kid." Grace Semler Baldridge, Semler, thank you so much for joining us. Congratulations. SEMLER: Thank you so much for having me.

  • Far-Right Misinformation Is Thriving On Facebook. A New Study Shows Just How Much

    wuwm.com Sunday, 7 March 2021 04:17:00

    Updated at 8:35 p.m. ET By the time a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, fueled by far-right conspiracies and lies about a stolen election, a group of researchers at New York University had been compiling Facebook engagement data for months. The NYU-based group, Cybersecurity For Democracy, was studying online misinformation — wanting to know how different types of news sources engaged with their audiences on Facebook. After the events of Jan. 6, researcher Laura Edelson expected to see a spike in Facebook users engaging with the day's news, similar to Election Day. But Edelson, who helped lead the research, said her team noticed a troubling phenomenon. "The thing was, most of that spike was concentrated among the partisan extremes and misinformation providers," Edelson told NPR's All Things Considered . "And when I really sit back and think about that, I think the idea that on a day like that, which was so scary and so uncertain, that the most extreme and least

  • Texas Won't Reduce $16 Billion In Electricity Charges From Winter Storm

    wuwm.com Sunday, 7 March 2021 04:10:00

    In January, Dallas resident Shannon Marrs paid $257 for electricity. But after Texas suffered the worst winter storm in years, Marrs' February electric bill totaled more than $10,000. That's because for a period of 32 hours during the deepest freeze of February's winter storm, power companies were paying $9 per kilowatt-hour for the electricity — about 75 times higher than the state's average winter costs. Companies passed those costs on to consumers. Texans facing those unexpected bills were hoping that Texas' utility regulator would retroactively reduce the electricity market prices. But on Friday, the state's Public Utility Commission chose to let the charges stand. It might seem like retroactively reducing the charges would be good for consumers, said Texas PUC Chairman Arthur D'Andrea during Friday's public meeting. But, he argued, that reflects a "simplistic" view of how Texas power markets work. "We just see the tip of the iceberg," D'Andrea said. "You don't know who you're

  • In First Test Drive On Mars, Perseverance Rover Makes A Short But Significant Trip

    wuwm.com Sunday, 7 March 2021 00:08:00

    The Perseverance rover took its first test drive on the surface of Mars this week, traversing some 21 feet of terrain in a short trip that scientists say represents a major milestone. NASA said the rover ventured out from its landing site on Thursday, exactly two weeks after it first touched down on the red planet. The drive, which lasted about 33 minutes, served as an important test of the rover's mobility system. Anais Zarifian, Perseverance mobility test bed engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said that when it comes to wheeled vehicles on other planets, few events are more significant than the initial drive. "This was our first chance to 'kick the tires' and take Perseverance out for a spin," she said. "The rover's six-wheel drive responded superbly. We are now confident our drive system is good to go, capable of taking us wherever the science leads us over the next two years." The rover moved forward 13 feet, turned 150 degrees to the left and then backed up 8 feet into

  • Senate Passes $1.9 Trillion Coronavirus Relief Package

    wuwm.com Saturday, 6 March 2021 23:57:00

    Updated at 12:56 p.m. ET The Senate approved President Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan Saturday, securing additional aid for American families, workers and businesses — and a legislative victory for the Biden administration. After more than 24 hours of debate, the evenly divided Senate voted 50-49 to approve the measure. Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan of Alaska was absent because he was in Alaska for a family funeral. The package delivers a new round of financial assistance to Americans grappling with the impact of the pandemic, including $1,400 direct payments, an extension of supplemental unemployment benefits and an increase to the child tax credit. Individuals earning up to $75,000 and couples earning up to $150,000 would receive the full direct payments of $1,400 per person. But those payments would phase out for individuals and couples who make more than $80,000 and $160,000, respectively. The income cutoff was lowered after moderate Democrats demanded that the latest

  • The Dalai Lama Gets A COVID-19 Shot And Urges Others To Get Vaccinated

    wuwm.com Saturday, 6 March 2021 22:18:00

    Updated at 2:12 p.m. ET The Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, left his home on Saturday to receive his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and promote vaccination against the coronavirus, in what was his first public appearance in over a year. The 85-year-old scrapped plans to receive the injection at home, opting instead to travel to a clinic in Dharamsala, India, where he's lived since fleeing China after a failed uprising in 1959. He was photographed exposing his right shoulder to receive a vaccine known as Covishield in India, which was developed by the University of Oxford and drug firm AstraZeneca. In a video message afterward, the Dalai Lama said, "I took [the vaccine] so I want to share [that] more people should have courage to take this injection." YouTube This comes as India and other countries try to ramp up vaccination distribution to outrun the coronavirus and its variant forms. India currently has the world's second-highest COVID-19 caseload, with over 11

  • Pope Holds Historic Meeting With Iraq's Top Shiite Cleric, Preaches Message Of Unity

    wuwm.com Saturday, 6 March 2021 19:22:00

    Updated at 1:25 p.m. ET Pope Francis sought to reinforce ties across religions during the second day of his trip to Iraq, visiting a top Shiite Muslim cleric on Saturday and leading a meeting with representatives of different faiths at the ancient site of Ur in the south of the country. According to scripture, Ur is the birthplace of Abraham, considered the founder of monotheism and revered by Christians, Muslims and Jews. In a ceremony that gathered a few dozen people next to an excavated part of the ancient city site Iraqis call the House of Abraham, Francis recalled a passage in Genesis where God calls on Abraham to look at the stars and imagine how numerous his descendants will be. "In those stars, he saw the promise of his descendants, he saw us," said Francis. The pope invited the assembled Christians, Muslims and representatives of Iraq's other minority faiths — including Yazidis and Sabean Mandeans — to see in the stars a message of unity. "They illumine the darkest nights

  • Pandemic Inspires More Than 1,200 New German Words

    wuwm.com Saturday, 6 March 2021 19:13:00

    The pandemic has changed how people talk and write. In English, dictionaries have noted a few dozen new entries and revisions: social distancing , frontliner , super-spreader , "Zoom" as a verb. But in Germany, lexicographers at the Leibniz Institute for the German Language have compiled more than 1,200 new words related to the coronavirus pandemic. German's propensity for compounding words has been a big part of the proliferation. For example, Coronamutationsgebiet is an area where coronavirus mutations are widespread. A Geisterveranstaltung (ghost event) is an event with no people in attendance, usually sports. Live music is allowed, provided the audience remains in their cars, at an Autokonzert . New nouns are often formed in German by combining two or three nouns, says Anatol Stefanowitsch, a professor of linguistics at the Freie Universität Berlin. "That's one of the explanations for why we find so many new words," he tells Scott Simon on Weekend Edition . "It's just so easy to
