  • U.S. Tops 25 Million Confirmed Coronavirus Cases

    wncw.org Monday, 25 January 2021 04:09:00

    Almost exactly one year after the first case of the coronavirus was detected in the United States, the country has now reached 25 million confirmed infections. As it has for months, the U.S. remains by far the most coronavirus-riddled country in the world. Data from Johns Hopkins University's Coronavirus Resource Center showed the U.S. passing the tragic marker as of Sunday morning. The true number of cases, however, is likely far higher: Many people become infected but never get tested, so they aren't reflected in the count. The U.S. has more than twice as many confirmed cases as the nation with the second highest count — India, a country with 10 million cases and a population that is four times larger. Nearly 420,000 people in the U.S. have now died from the virus. That's almost double the number of the next highest country, Brazil, which is closing in on 220,000 deaths. The existence of a more infectious variant of the virus could make matters worse, top health officials say. The

  • Southern Songs & Stories: Dom Flemons - Finding New Ways Forward By Reviving Music's Past

    wncw.org Monday, 25 January 2021 03:34:52

    For those who adhere to the old adage that “If you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room,” you would likely feel comfortable being in the company of Dom Flemons. Now living in Chicago, he has called many places home, from his native Arizona to North Carolina to Washington, D.C., and has covered even more musical territory, mastering the banjo, fife, guitar, harmonica, percussion, quills, and bones in many styles along the way. He won widespread acclaim as a founding member of The Carolina Chocolate Drops, and after leaving the group in 2013, has not missed a beat, playing at Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, the opening ceremonies for the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, and has represented the United States at the 2017 Rainforest World Music Festival in Kuching, Malaysia. These accomplishments only scratch the surface of his remarkable career, to say nothing of his warmth, openness and modest charm.

  • New Tunes at Two This Week: Ani Di Franco, Nick Waterhouse, and More

    wncw.org Monday, 25 January 2021 02:45:35

    This week during New Tunes at Two, we’ll highlight songs from new albums by Ani Di Franco (1/25), Nick Waterhouse (1/26), Pony Bradshaw (1/27), and Veronica Lewis (1/28). Tune your radio to 88.7fm Monday through Thursday during the 2pm hour as we sample this new music. On Monday, we'll dive into Ani Di Franco's latest album, Revolutionary Love , which is set to release this Friday. Di Franco voices deep frustrations and tensions felt both personally and politically in her new album. It's rooted in her poetic lyricism and commanding vocal work using folk, soul, and jazz-pop to convey her message. Nick Waterhouse will release his next album in April of this year, but we'll air tracks on Tuesday. Likened to the way author F. Scott Fitzgerald used the color green to represent hope for the future in his novel The Great Gatsby , which took place during an era of spiritual vacuousness, Waterhouse chooses the color blue to take a spiritual look into the past on his album Promenade Blue .

  • 11 Miners Rescued In China After 2 Weeks Trapped Below Ground

    wncw.org Sunday, 24 January 2021 21:39:00

    Eleven miners have been rescued in China after a harrowing two weeks trapped some 2,000 feet below ground. The rescue marked a moment of celebration and relief in what has been an arduous and complex effort to bring the men to safety. One miner has already died and another 10 remain missing. The first miner was rescued shortly after 11 a.m. local time on Sunday. Television footage showed rescuers clapping and cheering as the miner was brought to the surface wearing a blindfold to protect his eyes from the light. He was brought to the hospital for treatment, with his condition described as "extremely weak." Several other miners were seen walking on their own with the help of rescuers before being taken to the hospital. The miners became trapped on Jan. 10 following an unexplained explosion at the Hushan gold mine located in the city of Qixia in China's eastern province of Shandong. It was not until 30 hours later that the accident was reported, leading to the firings of at least two

  • New Zealand Records 1st Suspected COVID-19 Community Case Since November

    wncw.org Sunday, 24 January 2021 20:58:00

    New Zealand has kept its community spread of the coronavirus low by keeping tight border controls, but on Sunday the country of 5 million reported its first suspected community case since November. And officials say it might involve a more transmissible variant of the virus. A 56-year-old woman, who had traveled to Spain and the Netherlands for work late last year, has tested positive for the coronavirus after being in managed isolation for the required 14 days upon her return to New Zealand, the country's Ministry of Health said . She had tested negative twice — on Jan. 2 and Jan. 10 — but began developing symptoms on Jan. 15. Because she tested positive several days after leaving managed isolation, officials suspect her case is a community case. "Further testing is needed, including a serology blood test, to confirm whether the case is new or historical," the ministry said. But it said the initial test results suggest "that it is new and we are treating it as such." Health officials

  • Politics Chat: Biden To Sign More Executive Orders In First Full Week As President

    wncw.org Sunday, 24 January 2021 18:59:00

    LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST: President Biden is beginning his first full week in office. He's been on calls with world leaders - Canada and Mexico Friday, the U.K. yesterday - and he's expected to sign more executive actions over the course of this week. And, of course, his team is reaching out to Congress, where the fate of his massive economic relief package will be decided. So let's turn now to NPR's Ayesha Rascoe, who is at our microphone at the White House. Hello, Ayesha. AYESHA RASCOE, BYLINE: Hello. GARCIA-NAVARRO: So many of the orders Biden has been signing are part of a plan he laid out for his first 10 days. What are we expecting this week? And have there been any significant sort of deviations from the priorities we heard about? RASCOE: Not really. Biden's chief of staff, Ron Klain, had laid out this plan for the first 10 days. They've generally been sticking with it. This week is supposed to be focused a lot on equity. This is something that Biden has talked a lot about,

  • As Israelis Flock To UAE, They See A New Precedent: Peace Deals Without Giving Ground

    wncw.org Sunday, 24 January 2021 17:01:00

    Israelis are visiting Dubai in the tens of thousands. Where in the past, they could only arrive as undercover spies, competitive athletes or foreign passport holders, now they are loud and proud, running into the arms of their new Middle Eastern friend, the oil-rich United Arab Emirates. Since December, they have window-shopped among elaborate displays of gilded wedding garments, skied down the indoor slope at Dubai's Mall of the Emirates and boasted of their meetings with Emirati businessmen. "We Israelis are very noisy, and they understand us ... Here I feel good!" bellowed tour guide Lihi Ziv, wearing a sequined shirt and a blue scarf around her strawberry-red hair, seeing no reason to maintain a low profile as she wandered Dubai's gold market last month. "We are wanted," said elementary school teacher Ilanit Zighelboim, as she toured the nearby spice market with friends. Israel and the United Arab Emirates have promoted their U.S.-brokered deal for diplomatic relations as an

  • Biden Is Catholic. He Also Supports Abortion Rights. Here's What That Could Mean

    wncw.org Sunday, 24 January 2021 03:53:00

    Joe Biden is only the second Catholic president of the United States. He's also a supporter of abortion rights — a position at odds with official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. For some Catholic activists, like Marjorie Dannenfelser, Biden's high-profile example of a Catholic who supports abortion rights is troubling. "It's a negative example of a deep and important moral issue that is being debated in this country," she said. For some, a challenge; for others, an opportunity Dannenfelser is president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that works to elect national politicians who are opposed to abortion rights and to advocate for laws limiting abortion. She's particularly concerned about Biden's embrace of a broader push among Democrats to repeal the Hyde Amendment , which prohibits federal funding for most abortions. He took that position in 2019, while running for the Democratic presidential nomination, after decades of supporting the amendment . "The church itself has

  • Fauci Relishes A 'Hallelujah' Moment

    wncw.org Sunday, 24 January 2021 01:54:00

    Dr. Anthony Fauci says letting the science speak on the pandemic got him "into a little bit of trouble" during the Trump administration. President Donald Trump had called the nation's top infectious disease expert part of a group of "idiots" and a "disaster" and suggested that he might fire Fauci after the election, which Trump ended up losing. So, Fauci, President Biden's chief medical adviser on COVID-19, says he rejoiced when the new president declared that "science and truth" would guide the nation's policies on the pandemic. "I said, 'Hallelujah,' you know?" Fauci told NPR's Mary Louise Kelly on Friday. "That's a very liberating feeling, where people don't have to be worried about when you're saying something that you're going to get pushback from your own team," he says. "There never will be pushback on scientific data. The president himself has told us that he wants nothing but the truth based on science and good evidence." Fauci, 80, who was appointed director of the National

  • Who Wants To Be A Billionaire? $1 Billion Winning Lottery Ticket Sold In Michigan

    wncw.org Sunday, 24 January 2021 00:48:00

    It's the kind of purchase many shoppers make on impulse. Eggs, milk, yogurt and — why not? — a lottery ticket. With just six numbers drawn Friday night — 4, 26, 42, 50, 60 and the Mega Ball of 24 — a ticket sold at a Michigan grocery store made somebody one of the richest people in the country. "Someone in Michigan woke up to life-changing news this morning, and Kroger Michigan congratulates the newest Michigan multimillionaire," Rachel Hurst, a regional spokeswoman for the grocery chain, told The Associated Press. Only one person in the entire country picked all the winning numbers for the Mega Millions jackpot. So unlike in other big drawings, they won't have to split the prize. The odds of winning were 1 in 302.5 million. It's the third-largest lotto jackpot in U.S. history. The winner — who purchased the ticket at a Kroger grocery store in the Detroit suburb of Novi — has a choice of whether to split that up into 30 annual installments or to take an upfront cash payment of $776.6

  • More Than 3,000 Arrested In Russia In Protests Calling For Release Of Alexei Navalny

    wncw.org Saturday, 23 January 2021 22:53:00

    Updated Sunday at 12:15 p.m. ET Tens of thousands of Russians took to the streets in protest on Saturday to demand the release of jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny, braving the threat of mass arrests in what were some of the largest demonstrations against the Kremlin in years. From the port city of Vladivostok in the east to the capital of Moscow seven time zones away in the west, protesters swept across the country in open defiance of warnings from Russian authorities that the demonstrations have been deemed illegal. Police and protesters clashed in multiple cities. By Sunday morning, more than 3,300 demonstrators across the country had been detained, according to OVD-Info , an activist group that monitors arrests at protests. The group said it had never tracked so many arrests. In Moscow, protesters gathered in Pushkin Square for what appeared to be the largest of the day's protests. They were met by police trucks and city buses filled with riot officers, who blared messages

  • Veteran Broadcaster Larry King Dies At 87

    wncw.org Saturday, 23 January 2021 20:06:00

    With his trademark suspenders and deep baritone voice Larry King spoke with presidents, world leaders, celebrities, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes — everyone. The Peabody Award-winning broadcaster died Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 87. The death of the famed interviewer was announced on King's Twitter feed in a posting from his production studio , Ora Media. No cause of death was provided, but King had recently been hospitalized with COVID-19. "For 63 years and across the platforms of radio, television and digital media, Larry's many thousands of interviews, awards, and global acclaim stand as a testament to his unique and lasting talent as a broadcaster," the statement read. "Additionally, while it was his name appearing in the shows' titles, Larry always viewed his interview subjects as the true star of his programs, and himself as merely an unbiased conduit between the guest and audience." It's a philosophy that King himself spoke about in

  • Parents With Disabilities Face Extra Hurdles With Kids' Remote Schooling

    wncw.org Saturday, 23 January 2021 19:46:00

    The Americans with Disabilities Act says schools have to help not just students but parents with disabilities, too, like making sure deaf or blind parents can communicate during parent-teacher conferences. But what happens when kids are learning at home? That's uncharted territory. Rosabella Manzanares, a first grader at Betsy Ross Elementary in Forest Park, Ill., has a spelling test. Like so many kids around the country, she's taking the test at home, sharing a Zoom screen with a class full of other boisterous 6-year-olds. Rosabella's teacher relies on parents to grade simple assignments like this. But while Rosabella can hear the spelling words, her mother can not. Chantelly Manzanares uses American Sign Language, or ASL, which is different than English. It's a visual language. It has its own grammar. It uses different sentence structure. Rosabella and her siblings grew up using ASL. But while they've become fluent in English, Manzanares is not. She can grade this spelling test,

  • After Capitol Riot, Law Enforcement Officials Try To Remove Extremism From The Ranks

    wncw.org Saturday, 23 January 2021 19:46:00

    Copyright 2021 NPR. To see more, visit SCOTT SIMON, HOST: The January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has prompted FBI and local law enforcement agencies to try to identify those who participated in the assault. Some of the white supremacist conspiracy theorists and neo-Nazis so far identified seem to be among the very people we rely on to protect the public - police officers, firefighters, some current and former military members. Now security officials must also try to figure out how to root out extremism within their ranks. We're joined now by Chief Art Acevedo, chief of police at the Houston Police Department. Chief, thanks so much for being with us. ART ACEVEDO: Hey, thank you, Mr. Simon. Thank you for having me. SIMON: As I don't have to tell you, one of your officers has been detained, Tam Pham, an 18-year veteran of the force. He has resigned. He denies committing any acts of violence. But what's your reaction? ACEVEDO: Well, I was incredulous. The thought that one of our

Still, there are plenty of residents who remain wary of getting the vaccine, and that's why the city is already starting to do education and outreach about it, even though it'll be several months before the general public is eligible. As Fred Mogul at member station WNYC reports, that outreach is focusing on communities of color, where mistrust can run high. FRED MOGUL, BYLINE: At the Spanish Methodist Church in East Harlem, people are lined up along the side of the building for free boxes of food. But around the front, there's no line for coronavirus tests and free flu shots at a little pop-up station. A man named Kileem Roacher walks up to get a COVID test, and he's got something to say.

  • Opinion: Joe Biden's Lifetime Of Experience

    wncw.org Saturday, 23 January 2021 19:46:00

    A year ago, who would have thought 78-year-old Joe Biden would be sworn in this week as president? He had just finished fourth in the Iowa caucuses. He would soon finish fifth in the New Hampshire primary. He was derided as old, out-of-touch, an elderly, silvery centrist who said screwball things, as when he told a crowd, "Folks, I can tell you I've known eight presidents, three of them intimately." He'd run for president twice before and didn't come close. He served two terms as Barack Obama's vice president, but after Biden didn't run again in 2016, was widely thought to be past his expiration date in public office. During the 2020 primary debates, a fellow Democrat seemed to question Joe Biden's mental clarity onstage, when he asked him sharply, "Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?" Another candidate criticized him pointedly and personally for opposing the 1970s policy of busing children to speed school desegregation. That opponent, Kamala Harris, is now vice president

  • What Trump's Declassified Asia Strategy May Mean For U.S.-China Relations Under Biden

    wncw.org Saturday, 23 January 2021 19:01:00

    Eight days before the Trump administration departed, it declassified a key document that it said "provided overarching strategic guidance" to its approach toward Asia, a region it dubbed the Indo-Pacific. The 10-page, lightly redacted report, in use across the government since 2018, seeks to explain the challenges the U.S. faces from a rising and more assertive China, spells out vital U.S. interests in the region, and lays out a plan for both mobilizing and helping key allies in achieving U.S. aims. The document states that the U.S. should maintain "diplomatic, military and economic preeminence" in the region while "preventing China from establishing new, illiberal spheres of influence." It also envisions a Korean Peninsula "free of nuclear, chemical, cyber and biological weapons" and expresses commitment to "accelerate India's rise" so that the two countries can "cooperate" to "preserve maritime security and counter Chinese influence." The paper elucidates the motivations behind some

  • Wuhan's Lockdown Memories One Year Later: Pride, Anger, Deep Pain

    wncw.org Saturday, 23 January 2021 18:25:00

    A year ago, on January 23, 2020, China imposed an absolute lockdown in the Chinese city of Wuhan. For more than two months, nearly all of its 11 million residents could not leave their apartments. Anyone displaying symptoms was taken to hastily-built quarantine centers to prevent family infections . A scene from Jan. 25, 2020, in Wuhan: Health workers in protective garb walk next to patients awaiting medical attention at the Wuhan Red Cross Hospital. Hector Retamal / AFP via Getty Images The legacy of the lockdown has splintered Wuhan's residents, who have conflicting memories of those 76 days. For many, Wuhan is largely back to normal, and most of its residents want to move on. Song Feifei, who's in her late 20s and works at a snacks store along Wuhan's famous Jianghan promenade, thinks the lockdown was worth it. "The lockdown wasn't so bad, except for having no freedom. Just give us the Internet, and we young people can stay at home forever," she says, joking darkly. When my NPR
