  • Biden Says His National Security Team 'Reflects That America Is Back'

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 02:10:00

    Updated at 2:38 p.m. ET President-elect Joe Biden stressed a return to multilateralism Tuesday as he introduced key national security and foreign policy appointees and nominees for his incoming White House Cabinet, moving forward with the traditional transition process even though President Trump still hasn't formally admitted defeat. The Biden team released a list of names on Monday , including Antony Blinken to head the U.S. State Department and Alejandro Mayorkas as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. The group joined Biden in his announcement Tuesday. Biden hailed the group, saying the team gathered behind him "reflects that America is back." He touted their credentials but also nodded to taking on future dilemmas. "While this team has unmatched experience and accomplishments, they also reflect the idea that we cannot meet these challenges with old thinking and unchanged habits," he said. Biden emphasized the historic nature of his nominees — that his pick for

  • A Yazidi Woman Searches For Her Lost Daughter, Kidnapped By ISIS 6 Years Ago

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 01:56:00

    At an orphanage in Mosul, Iraq, the woman and the girl sitting on the long, gray sofa communicate mostly through touch — the girl leans against the woman, playing with her blue bead bracelet. The woman smiles as she removes the bracelet and puts it on the child's own slender wrist. There isn't a lot of conversation between Kamo Zandinan, 40, and the 10-year-old girl she believes is her lost daughter. The girl, believed to have been kidnapped by ISIS when she was four, was raised by an Arab family. Zandinan, who is Yazidi, speaks only rudimentary Arabic — learned when she was forced to live among ISIS fighters who enslaved her in Syria six years ago. Zandinan is sure that the girl, found in Mosul in March, is her daughter Sonya. The girl, until now, has only known herself as an Arab named Noor. A DNA test will confirm whether there's a match. "God willing, we will get the results soon and you will have the best daughter," orphanage director Amal Zaki Abdullah tells Zandinan. She assures

  • Elon Musk Passes Bill Gates To Become World's 2nd-Richest Person

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 01:44:00

    Tesla's skyrocketing share prices have made Elon Musk the world's second-richest person, with a net worth of nearly $128 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index . Musk edged past Bill Gates on Tuesday. Only Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is worth more. Bloomberg reported that the Tesla CEO has added more than $100 billion to his net worth in 2020, propelling him from the 35th spot on the index up to No. 2. Most of Musk's wealth is tied up in Tesla stock . Instead of drawing a salary, he has been compensated in stock based on the company's performance — a decision that has paid off handsomely for him so far. Tesla stock has repeatedly defied skeptics and pushed to stratospheric heights. So far, Musk has received four of the 12 bonuses negotiated in his executive compensation package. After some production challenges, Tesla has massively scaled up its output of electric cars, which have proved popular — the Model 3 is the bestselling luxury car in America. And Wall Street is

  • Parents Of Man Killed In U.K. Crash Lose Their Challenge To U.S. Diplomatic Immunity

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 01:29:00

    The parents of Harry Dunn have lost their case before the U.K.'s high court, which ruled that the U.S. driver who police say fatally struck their son did have diplomatic immunity. Dunn, 19, was riding his motorbike last August when he was hit by a car being driven on the wrong side of the road by Anne Sacoolas, the wife of a U.S. diplomat, as she left a nearby air force base used by the U.S. military. Sacoolas left the U.K. a couple weeks later, after telling local police she had no plans to leave the country. The U.S. has held that as the wife of a diplomat, she enjoyed full diplomatic immunity at the time of the crash. Through her attorney, Sacoolas has admitted to having been driving on the wrong side of the road when she collided with Dunn. She was charged with causing death by dangerous driving. The U.K. requested her extradition so she could face prosecution in the case, but the U.S. rejected the request . Dunn's family argued that the U.K. government had wrongly decided Sacoolas

  • Under Trump, New Anti-Abortion Rules Shook Fragile Health Systems Around the World

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 01:23:00

    In Ethiopia, health clinics for teenagers once supported by U.S. foreign aid closed down. In Kenya, a decades-long effort to integrate HIV testing and family planning unraveled. And in Nepal, intrepid government workers who once traversed the Himalayas to spread information about reproductive health were halted. Around the world, countries that depend on U.S. foreign aid have scrapped or scaled back ambitious public health projects, refashioning their health systems over the past four years to comport with President Donald Trump's sweeping anti-abortion restrictions that went further than any Republican president before him. The effects have been profound: As groups scrambled to meet the administration's strict ideologically driven rules, they severed ties with health care providers that discuss abortion in any way, deleted references to abortion on websites and in sexual education curricula, and stopped discussing modern contraception for fear of forfeiting vital American aid.

  • Vaccine Expert: Once A COVID Vaccine Is Available, 'Don't Overthink It. Don't Wait'

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 00:53:00

    As coronavirus cases continue to surge both in the U.S . and around the world , there's promising news on the vaccine front. Pharmaceutical companies Pfizer , Moderna and, more recently, AstraZeneca have all announced that their vaccines have shown better-than-expected results. Dr. Peter Hotez, co-director of the Center for Vaccine Development at Texas Children's Hospital, says that a vaccine release could begin for selected populations by the middle of December — and that a broader vaccination effort could soon follow. "By the early part of next year, we're going to move pretty quickly, I think, in vaccinating a significant percentage of the [U.S.] population," Hotez says. Hotez says that at present, all the vaccines in development work similarly, by inducing an immune response to the spike protein of the virus. "One of the questions that I'm asked all the time is, 'Hey, doc, which vaccine are you waiting for?' And the answer is ... I'm going to take any of those vaccines that's made

  • To Combat The Pandemic, Biden Will Aim To Depoliticize Mask-Wearing

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 00:43:00

    It was Memorial Day when then-candidate Joe Biden made his first public appearance since the coronavirus shut down in-person campaigning. Before he went out to place a wreath at a veterans memorial in Delaware, Biden and his team decided he would wear a mask. It wasn't a difficult decision, an aide said when asked about the choice. "Wearing one of these masks when you're outside is not a partisan issue," Biden said a couple of days later during a livestreamed event. "It is a matter of protecting other people." New guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also indicates it protects the wearer of the mask as well. The same week as Biden's remarks, President Trump retweeted someone mocking the Democrat for wearing a mask and teased a reporter for wearing one at a press conference, asking him to take it off to hear him, and when he didn't, saying it was "because you want to be politically correct." The lines were drawn. In the months since Memorial Day, face masks have

  • Twitter To Accept Blue Check Mark Requests in 2021 Following 3-Year Hiatus

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 00:07:00

    After a three-year pause, Twitter is going to let you ask for those little blue check marks again. The company said Tuesday it will start reviewing applications in 2021 under newly released guidelines. The blue check, which means Twitter has verified a user's identity, is seen as a status symbol on the platform but the process by which the checks were issued has long been murky and inconsistent. "We haven't been clear about who can become verified and when, why an account might be unverified, or what it means to be verified," Twitter said in a blog post on Tuesday. Now, according to Twitter, the guidelines for how blue checks are doled out will be public. But there will also be stepped up enforcement of blue-check violators. The company said Tuesday it expects to automatically take away more of the blue check marks from users who are inactive or repeatedly break Twitter's rules, an enforcement action aimed at minimizing a user's visibility. Twitter pioneered the check mark verification

  • From Around The World: How To Have A Happy(ish) Pandemic Thanksgiving

    wncw.org Wednesday, 25 November 2020 00:02:00

    A lot will be missing about Thanksgiving this year. It's a holiday that's celebrated on a bedrock of bringing family and friends, near and far, together for a big meal and lots of catching up, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urges: "As cases continue to increase rapidly across the United States, the safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving is to celebrate at home with people you live with." This isn't the first time the pandemic has put a damper on a traditional day of celebration. As Americans try to figure out how to mark the holiday, there are lessons to be learned from around the globe. Collaborative Cooking – At A Safe Distance Día de los Muertos, Guatemala, November 1 Pandemic food prep: Ana Michelle Dubon Estrada made fiambre, a traditional Guatemalan salad-like dish served on the Day of the Dead, with her daughter in her grandmother's garage — while grandmother called out instructions from a nearby doorway.

  • U.S., Russian Navies Involved In Brief Confrontation At Sea

    wncw.org Tuesday, 24 November 2020 19:00:00

    Russia says it caught a U.S. Navy ship illegally operating in Russian waters in the Sea of Japan and "chased off" the offending ship on Tuesday. The area in question has been claimed by Russia as part of its territorial waters since 1984, but the U.S. does not recognize that claim. The Admiral Vinogradov, a Russian destroyer, verbally warned the USS John S. McCain that it would be rammed if it didn't leave the area after it violated the boundary by more than a mile, according to Russia's Defense Ministry. The McCain, an Arleigh-Burke class destroyer, immediately returned to neutral waters after the warning, according to the Kremlin. The John S. McCain (DDG-56) leaves a naval port in Busan, South Korea, in 2009. Jo Jung-ho / AP However, the U.S. is telling a different story . It says that the McCain "asserted navigational rights and freedoms in the vicinity of Peter the Great Bay in the Sea of Japan." The 106-nautical mile closing line at the mouth of the bay is "inconsistent with the

  • Trump Pardons Corn The Turkey, Trying To Show Normalcy Amid The Abnormal

    wncw.org Tuesday, 24 November 2020 19:00:00

    Updated at 2:40 p.m. ET A U.S. president again took part in the very strange and myth-filled tradition of pardoning a turkey at the White House on Tuesday. This year's bird, Corn , was chosen over compatriot Cob after the White House ran a poll on Twitter asking which one should be spared between the two. It all seemed normal. That's one effect presidents hope for out of this tradition — to show a sense of normalcy. Trump, as presidents usually do, made a few fowl puns. He briefly acknowledged the coronavirus pandemic, thanking medical workers and scientists, and praising the progress of fast-tracked vaccines. Still, this year, it all seemed wildly off and out of place. The sitting president has refused to concede, though he lost the election. On Monday night, there was a sign of acceptance as he said he directed his administration to begin President-elect Joe Biden's transition. But he vowed to keep fighting to overturn the election, though he has mostly exhausted his legal options.

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: In a nondescript room in Michigan, as thousands watched on video, President Trump's strategy to somehow win an election that he lost suffered another blow. A four-member board certified Michigan's vote for Joe Biden, making it clear that the step was required by law. The move followed an embarrassing flameout for Trump's legal team in Pennsylvania, the latest lawsuit that they have lost. And by the end of the day, a key member of Trump's administration came close to acknowledging the obvious. Emily Murphy still did not refer to Joe Biden as president-elect. But in a letter, the head of the General Services Administration released federal funding to be used in the event of a transition of power. Let's begin our coverage with NPR's Ayesha Rascoe, who covers the White House. Good morning. AYESHA RASCOE, BYLINE: Good morning.

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit DAVID GREENE, HOST: And now we turn to the newest campaign in space. Early Tuesday morning in Beijing, China launched a rocket to the moon. NPR's Geoff Brumfiel has more on the mission. GEOFF BRUMFIEL, BYLINE: The probe is known as Chang'e 5. QUANZHI YE: Chang'e is the Chinese goddess for the moon. BRUMFIEL: Ye Quanzhi is an astronomer at the University of Maryland who tracks China's space program. He says this mission is special because it will both land on the moon and pick up some lunar soil to carry back to Earth. YE: It will be the first time that we get something back from the moon in 40 years. BRUMFIEL: Ye says this mission is part of a long-term Chinese plan to explore the moon, first with satellites, then landers and rovers and now a sample return. For China, the space program is a way to signal the country's superpower status. Moreover... YE: By promoting space exploration, you are creating new avenues to collaborate with other countries

  • Trump Push To Invalidate Votes In Heavily Black Cities Alarms Civil Rights Groups

    wncw.org Tuesday, 24 November 2020 17:26:00

    When Joe Biden thanked Black voters in his first remarks as president-elect, he credited them with lifting his campaign from its lowest point during the Democratic primaries. "You've always had my back, and I'll have yours," he promised. While Biden won Black voters overwhelmingly across the country, they were key to his victories in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia — places where President Trump and his allies have been targeting ballots in cities with large Black populations in an attempt to overturn the president's defeat and retain power. Trump's campaign and his allies have presented no real evidence of widespread voter fraud or other impropriety in any of these cities, and they have faced multiple defeats in court. But the persistence of the president and loyal Republicans has alarmed Black leaders, civil rights activists and historians who see an unprecedented attempt to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters, many of them Black. The president's campaign has

  • England Cuts Quarantine Time For Travelers With Negative COVID-19 Test

    wncw.org Tuesday, 24 November 2020 16:07:00

    Updated at 5:03 a.m. ET International travelers heading to England could cut their mandatory quarantine time by more than half under new rules announced by the British government Tuesday. Starting Dec. 15, certain travelers could cut their 14-day mandatory quarantine down to five days if they take a COVID-19 test and the results are negative. The new strategy announced by the the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps is meant to "bolster international travel" and business as English airports and local economies struggle to continue operating during the pandemic, his office said. "Our new testing strategy will allow us to travel more freely, see loved ones and drive international business. By giving people the choice to test on day 5, we are also supporting the travel industry as it continues to rebuild out of the pandemic," Shapps said in a statement Tuesday . Meanwhile, the CEO of Australia's flagship carrier, Qantas, struck a very different tone Monday on pandemic-era travel restrictions.

  • David Dinkins, New York City's 1st Black Mayor, Dies At 93

    wncw.org Tuesday, 24 November 2020 12:35:00

    Updated at 2:20 a.m. ET David Dinkins, New York City's only African American mayor, died Monday night at 93. Dinkins led New York in the early 1990s as its mayor, a position he called "the greatest job there is." Dinkins' office operations manager, Lynda Hamilton, confirmed his death to NPR early Tuesday. Dinkins broke barriers with his 1989 election, managing to defeat three-term incumbent Ed Koch during the Democratic primary that year and later to best Republican Rudy Giuliani in the general election. Giuliani would go on to defeat Dinkins for the position four years later. Early Tuesday, Giuliani expressed his condolences on Twitter, saying of Dinkins, "He gave a great deal of his life in service to our great City. That service is respected and honored by all." Dinkins' tenure came at a contentious time for a city that was plagued by economic woes, crime and racial tension. Many criticized his handling of those tensions in some of the city's neighborhoods and, particularly, with a

  • Ken Jennings: Who Is 1st 'Jeopardy!' Guest Host?

    wncw.org Tuesday, 24 November 2020 11:04:00

    Former Jeopardy! champion, author and know-it-all kind of guy, Ken Jennings, will be the first guest host of the long-running trivia game show, officials said Monday. The announcement , two weeks after much-loved host Alex Trebek died of pancreatic cancer on Nov. 8, explained that "a series of interim guest hosts from the Jeopardy! family" will take over the show, which Trebek hosted from 1984 until earlier this year. "We will resume production on 11/30," the show's official Twitter account said, noting that additional guest hosts will be announced at a later time. Jennings responded to the tweet with one of his own. "There will only ever be one Alex Trebek, but I'm honored to be helping Jeopardy! out with this in January," he wrote . Jennings made show history after winning 74 straight games in 2004 and into 2005. The record-breaking streak earned him $ 3,370,700 .

  • Democrats Insist On Tuesday Briefing By GSA Head On Delayed Transition

    wncw.org Tuesday, 24 November 2020 03:59:00

    Congressional Democrats, angered by the Trump administration's refusal to begin the formal transition process to President-elect Joe Biden, are demanding a briefing on the matter from the head of the General Services Administration on Tuesday. In a letter to GSA Administrator Emily Murphy, the Democrats say they can't wait another week, as the GSA has offered. The GSA said the deputy administrator would provide a briefing to lawmakers on Nov. 30. The lawmakers, including the chairs of the House Appropriations and House Oversight and Reform committees, wrote on Monday: "We cannot wait yet another week to obtain basic information about your refusal to make the ascertainment determination. Every additional day that is wasted is a day that the safety, health, and well-being of the American people is imperiled as the incoming Biden-Harris Administration is blocked from fully preparing for the coronavirus pandemic, our nation's dire economic crisis, and our national security." The 1963

She was confirmed to that position, winning some support from Senate Republicans. She was a top White House economist in the Clinton administration as well, and has won praise from progressive Democrats.
