  • Does The China Trade Deal Move The World Away From Free Trade?

    wncw.org | Sat, 18 Jan 2020 12:00:00 +0000

    The "Phase 1" trade deal with China that President Trump signed this week is unlike any previous free trade agreement. From Trump's point of view, that's the whole point. "We are righting the wrongs of the past," Trump said Wednesday during a White House signing ceremony, "and delivering a future of economic justice and security for American workers, farmers and families." But by requiring China to buy specific amounts of goods from the U.S., the deal is raising concerns that it moves away from a free-market arrangement to a more managed style of trade. Like earlier agreements, the 96-page deal does call for lowering some trade barriers in China. It opens a door for U.S. financial services , for example, and clears the way for China to buy more American beef, dairy products, and pet food. But the agreement leaves many other trade barriers in place, including stiff tariffs on two-thirds of everything the U.S. buys from China. According to Oxford Economics, the average tariff on Chinese

  • Menopause Starts Younger Than You Think: Here's What You Need To Know

    wncw.org | Sat, 18 Jan 2020 12:00:00 +0000

    Sarah Edrie says she was about 33 when she started to occasionally get a sudden, hot, prickly feeling that radiated into her neck and face, leaving her flushed and breathless. "Sometimes I would sweat. And my heart would race," she says. The sensations subsided in a few moments, and seemed to meet the criteria for a panic attack. But Edrie, who has no personal or family history of anxiety, was baffled. She told her doctor and her gynecologist about the episodes, along with a few other health concerns she was starting to notice: Her menstrual cycle was becoming irregular, she had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, and she was getting night sweats. Their response: a shrug. It wasn't until Edrie went to a fertility clinic at age 39, because she and her partner were having trouble conceiving, that she got answers. "They were like, 'Oh, those are hot flashes. It's because you're in perimenopause,'" she says. If you haven't heard the term "perimenopause," you're not alone. Often when

  • Studio B Rewind SUNDAY, Jan. 19, Kick Off Your Shoes With BAREFOOT MOVEMENT Plus LULA WILES at 7pm

    wncw.org | Sat, 18 Jan 2020 05:01:45 +0000

    Host Kim Clark says we have fantastic harmonies in store for us on this week's show! Long before they were in a band together, the members of Lula Wiles were singing folk songs and trading fiddle tunes at camp in Maine. Lula Wiles came of age in Boston, in the practice rooms of Berklee College of Music and the city’s lively roots scene. Since then, they have toured internationally, winning fans at the Newport Folk Festival and the Philadelphia Folk Festival. They dropped by Studio B and performed their catchy single “Its Cool” and other songs when they were here last November. We'll share highlights from that session. We'll also hear music from the Barefoot Movement , a band that CMT Edge calls "One of the most promising bands on the blugrass scene." They have roots here in North Carolina and East Tennessee. The energetic, award-winning musicians call Nashville home now and recently signed with Bonfire Music Group. The band has a new EP scheduled to drop next month, and they're

  • 3 Alleged Members Of Hate Group 'The Base' Arrested In Georgia, Another In Wisconsin

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 23:24:00 +0000

    Police have arrested three men in northern Georgia who are suspected of belonging to a violent white supremacist group called The Base, saying that they were plotting to commit murder and that they belonged to a criminal street gang. They're the second trio of suspected Base members to be arrested this week; the FBI announced Thursday that it arrested three other men in Maryland . A fourth man from Wisconsin, also accused of being a member of the group, was charged on Friday with conspiracy in connection with vandalism of a synagogue as part of a nationwide series of attacks on minority-owned properties. The Floyd County, Ga., Police Department says Luke Austin Lane, 21, Michael John Helterbrand, 25, and Jacob Kaderli, 19, were "allegedly involved in a white supremacist group with plans to overthrow the government" and to kill a married couple whom they identified as having high-profile roles in the far-left group Antifa. The FBI's Atlanta office "conducted the bulk of the preliminary

  • Supreme Court To Hear 'Faithless Electors' Case

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 23:24:00 +0000

    The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear two cases challenging state attempts to penalize Electoral College delegates who fail to vote for the presidential candidate they were pledged to support. Electoral College delegates are selected by each party, and under state laws, they are pledged to cast their ballots for the candidate who carries the popular vote. But from 1796 to 2016, over 20 presidential elections, 150 electors have not abided by that pledge, according to FairVote, a nonpartisan voting rights advocacy group. In fact, 2016 marked the largest number of faithless voters — a total of seven who cast votes for candidates they were not pledged to support. States have tried to prevent such "faithless elector" votes by enacting laws to remove them or fine them or both. Now, just as the presidential campaign is heating up, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear challenges to such state laws in Washington and Colorado. "This court should resolve this conflict now, before it arises

  • Amtrak Asks 2 People Who Use Wheelchairs To Pay $25,000 For A Ride

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 23:18:00 +0000

    Updated at 11:32 p.m. ET It costs just $16 to buy a one-way ticket on the Amtrak train from Chicago to Bloomington, Ill., unless you're the two people who use wheelchairs and tried to buy tickets recently. They were told their tickets will cost not $16 — but $25,000. When Adam Ballard saw what Amtrak wanted to charge, he couldn't believe it. "I thought it was a mistake. That's the price of a car," Ballard says. "How can that be possible? I was sure it was a mistake. But I've seen it in writing. So I know it's not." Ballard works for a disability service and advocacy center in Chicago called Access Living. He is its housing and transportation policy analyst, and a group from his office is headed to Bloomington next Wednesday for a work retreat. There are 10 of them, and five — including Ballard — use wheelchairs. Their train has three cars. Each car has one space for a wheelchair. That makes three spaces for five people in wheelchairs. In the past, when Access Living gave advance notice

  • Supreme Court Takes Up Birth-Control Conscience Case

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 22:42:00 +0000

    The U.S. Supreme Court says it will consider whether employers should be allowed to opt out of providing contraceptive coverage to their workers because of moral or religious objections. At issue are Trump administration regulations allowing employers to claim such exemptions to the contraceptive insurance coverage mandate in the Affordable Care Act, which requires most employer-provided plans to include birth control coverage without a copay. Churches and other religious organizations already can opt out of the requirement, but the Trump administration has sought to expand that exemption to include a wider array of businesses and organizations. Pennsylvania and New Jersey challenged the Trump administration regulation and won a nationwide injunction temporarily blocking the rules. Brigitte Amiri, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union's Reproductive Freedom Project, called the Trump administration rules "an attempt to rob people of their contraception coverage." The ACLU

  • Indiana's Oldest State Worker Is Retiring At 102: 'I've Been A Pretty Lucky Guy'

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 21:32:00 +0000

    Everyone retires someday. It's a fact of life — one that folks usually come to terms with in their mid- to late 60s. Unless, of course, you're running for president. Or Clint Eastwood. There's one man, though, who makes a whippersnapper like Eastwood look like a novice: Bob Vollmer, who, at 102 years old, is only now considering putting his feet up after nearly six decades at Indiana's Department of Natural Resources . "I've got a lot of things planned," the centenarian land surveyor, the oldest state employee in Indiana's history, tells NPR's Weekend Edition . "I have some great-grandkids coming along. Matter of fact, if I can live a little bit longer, I might be a great-great-grandfather." He says that after his planned retirement next month, he's got "some projects" he's preparing to build for the little ones, which he won't reveal on national radio because "they're going to be a surprise." And maybe something for himself, too: "Might build me a new swimming pool or something like

  • U.S. Says 11 Service Members Were Injured When Iran Attacked Iraqi Base

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 21:16:00 +0000

    The Pentagon says 11 U.S. service members were injured in Iran's ballistic missile attack on U.S. assets in Iraq last week. The Americans are being treated for concussion symptoms from the blast and are expected to return to duty after a health screening, a Defense Department spokesperson says. No one died in the Jan. 8 strike on the large Ain al-Assad base, northwest of Baghdad, and the U.S. initially said no Americans were injured. The new report expands on comments by a military spokesman who said earlier this week that "several" people were being treated for concussions. "In the days following the attack, out of an abundance of caution, some service members were transported from Al Asad Air Base, Iraq to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, others were sent to Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, for follow-on screening," said Capt. Bill Urban, communications director for U.S. Central Command. He added that eight people were sent to the facility in Germany and three to Kuwait. Urban said

  • FBI Seizes Website Suspected Of Selling Access To Billions Of Pieces Of Stolen Data

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 20:42:00 +0000

    U.S. authorities have seized the domain name of a website that allegedly sold access to billions of usernames, email addresses, passwords and other sensitive information stolen in data breaches. Now, visitors to the not-so-subtle website – weleakinfo.com — are greeted with a homepage that reads, "This Domain Has Been Seized." The Justice Department and the FBI took control of the site as part of a "comprehensive law enforcement action" involving authorities in Germany, Northern Ireland, the U.K. and the Netherlands. Two men in Europe have been arrested so far in connection with the site. WeLeakInfo billed itself as a "search engine" that subscribers could use to pore over data illegally obtained from more than 10,000 data breaches, U.S. authorities said in a statement . In all, the Justice Department said the site was offering access to more than 12 billion indexed records. "The website sold subscriptions so that any user could access the results of these data breaches, with

  • 'Freed From The Secret': Rep. Ayanna Pressley Opens Up About Living With Alopecia

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 19:21:00 +0000

    "I've only been bald in the privacy of my home and in the company of close friends," Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts says at the beginning of an emotional video in which she revealed she is living with alopecia. "I do believe going public will help," she says in the video published by The Root . "I'm ready now, because I want to be freed from the secret and the shame that secret carries with it. Because I'm not here just to occupy space — I'm here to create it." Pressley starts the video wearing a wig and later appears squarely addressing the camera with her bald head revealed. Alopecia is a disease that causes hair loss when the body attacks its own hair follicles, according to the American Academy of Dermatology . It happens to otherwise healthy people and tends to be "unpredictable," the AAD says. It can manifest as bald patches or people can lose all the hair on their scalp or on their entire body. As John Hopkins Medicine notes , black women are particularly susceptible to a

  • The Cost Of Free: Casper Pays A Price For Generous Mattress Returns

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 19:19:00 +0000

    There's no free lunch, economists will say. So when a company says, sleep on a mattress for a few months and return it for free — that actually costs money. Just how much? That question is now in the spotlight as online mattress seller Casper plans to go public. The decision forced Casper to disclose eye-popping losses: more than $92 million in 2018. This has become a familiar story of a startup. Casper is a dominant online brand that's growing faster than its peers, according to Rakuten Intelligence. And it's investing heavily in marketing and opening physical stores. But another big cost at Casper is "refunds, returns and discounts," worth almost $81 million in 2018. "This was long suspected that Casper is losing money," said David Perry, executive editor and mattress writer at Furniture Today. "The number I really would like to see is what is the return percentage [of Casper's mattresses]. Spoiler alert: I'm still looking." The company did not disclose how many of its mattresses get

  • Remembering Spiritual Leader Ram Dass

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 18:21:00 +0000

    DAVID BIANCULLI, HOST: This is FRESH AIR. In the early 1960s, Richard Alpert was a Harvard professor of psychology conducting clinical research into the use of psychedelics. But then he and his colleague Timothy Leary were fired from Harvard in 1963. After continuing his experiments off campus, Albert went to India in 1967, where he met his guru and studied yoga and meditation. His spiritual teacher gave him a new name, Ram Dass. And when Ram Dass returned to the States, he was perceived as something of a guru himself. His 1971 book of advice, "Be Here Now," became a bestseller. When Richard Alpert became Ram Dass, his father mocked the change. And there was an enormous rift between the hippie hero son and the father who had served as president of the New York, New Haven Railroad. But in the last years of his father's life, Ram Dass lived with his father and cared for him. Ram Dass died last month at age 88. Here's an excerpt of his interview with Terry from 1990.

  • Eminem Releases Surprise Album, 'Music To Be Murdered By'

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 17:59:00 +0000

    YouTube We last heard from Marshall Mathers in album form in the summer of 2018, when he surprise released his 10th album, Kamikaze . At the time, NPR Music's Rodney Carmichael said it seemed like the famously tongue-in-cheek terrible child had " lost his sense of humor ." About a year and a half later, Mathers has indirectly responded with another surprise album, asking: "What's there to laugh about?" Music To Be Murdered By , Eminem's 11th studio album, was a midnight surprise dropped quietly in the wee hours this morning, packaged with assists from Black Thought, Ed Sheeran, Q-Tip, Anderson .Paak, Juice WRLD — the 21-year-old Chicago rapper who died on Dec. 8 — and others. Among them you'll find skits; the voice of Alfred Hitchcock (from whom Mathers cribbed the album's title) and a cross-section of popular hip-hop's varied, favored production styles. But it's the video released in tandem, for the song "Darkness," that appears to be the album's centerpiece and fulcrum. Eminem isn't

  • White House Beefs Up Defense Team

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit RACHEL MARTIN, HOST: The White House has added a number of high-profile names to President Trump's defense team this morning. This comes ahead of the beginning of the impeachment trials scheduled to begin in the Senate Tuesday. NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith is in the studio to talk with us about the list. Hi, Tamara. TAMARA KEITH, BYLINE: Good morning, Rachel. MARTIN: Who's on it?

  • Iran's Ayatollah Slams 'American Clowns' In Rare Friday Prayers Sermon

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 15:48:00 +0000

    Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, led Friday prayers in Tehran for the first time in eight years and delivered a sermon in which he excoriated U.S. leaders as "clowns" and accused European countries of negotiating in bad faith over the foundering nuclear deal. Khamenei also indicated that Iran might retaliate further for the U.S. drone strike that killed top Iranian commander Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, saying a missile attack on U.S. assets in Iraq had been a blow to America's dignity and its status as a superpower. The address comes at a delicate time for the ayatollah. Iran's leaders are locked in a contentious dispute with the U.S., and they're facing public criticism at home after admitting that Iran accidentally shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet, killing 176 people, most of whom were Iranian. "The past two weeks were eventful and exceptional weeks," Khamenei said, according to a partial transcript on his website . Speaking to a large crowd of worshippers in Tehran,

  • In China, Birthrate Falls To Lowest Level In 70 Years

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 14:31:00 +0000

    Updated at 9 a.m. ET New birthrate figures show that China has so far failed to reverse the effects of its longtime one-child policy — a change that policymakers say is necessary to forestall the long-term economic consequences of an aging and shrinking population. The National Bureau of Statistics of China released the new data on Friday, the same day it announced that the country's GDP growth has fallen to its lowest level in nearly 30 years. Last year, there were 10.48 births per 1,000 people, the lowest birthrate since 1949, the year the People's Republic of China was founded. The number was down from 10.94 the year before. The one-child policy was put in place in 1979 by Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who feared that the country's exploding population would hold back economic development. However, by 2016, China's leadership came to realize that the policy had been too successful and officially relaxed it. Experts say that improved education and higher incomes in China have led to

  • Why Gun Violence Is Surging In Toronto

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 14:20:00 +0000

    Gun violence is a growing problem in Canada's biggest city — and last year was Toronto's worst, with more shootings than any year to date, according to Toronto police statistics. The highest-profile incident came in June, when shots rang out as more than a million fans gathered in Nathan Phillips Square to celebrate the Toronto Raptors' first NBA championship. Four people were injured in the shooting, and a panicked stampede of fans ensued. That was followed by 14 separate incidents of gun violence over one weekend in August. By the end of 2019, more than 760 people had been shot in the city, 44 of whom were killed, according to Toronto Police. That's triple the number of shooting victims in the city in 2014. Canada has tighter gun laws than in the U.S. and suffers much less gun crime, so for many citizens, the sharp rise in gun violence in Toronto is shocking. City officials and gun control advocates are trying to figure out why the surge is happening — and what they can do to stop it

  • Vitamin Treatment For Sepsis Fails In Large Trial

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 13:09:00 +0000

    Hope for an effective and inexpensive treatment for the deadly condition sepsis has dimmed following results of a major new study. Researchers had hoped that a simple treatment involving infusions of vitamin C, vitamin B1 and steroids would work against a disease that kills an estimated 270,000 people each year in the United States and 11 million globally. Sepsis, or blood poisoning, occurs when the body overreacts to infection. It leads to leaky blood vessels, which can cause multiple organ failure. Excitement about this treatment took off in early 2017, when a well-regarded physician and researcher in Norfolk, Va., Dr. Paul Marik, reported that he had remarkable results treating his sepsis patients using this combination of agents. Some doctors in intensive care units started using the method immediately, based on those early results. Many others said they wanted to wait for results of a more carefully controlled study The largest scientific study published to date has now reported

  • Iran's Supreme Leader Delivers Rare Speech At Friday's Prayers

    wncw.org | Fri, 17 Jan 2020 12:52:00 +0000

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit NOEL KING, HOST: It happens every single week. Thousands of people gather in Tehran for Friday prayers. But this morning, they were joined by Iran's supreme leader. And for the first time in eight years, he delivered the sermon. Now, this appearance came after two dicey weeks in the region. NPR's Jane Arraf is with me from Baghdad. Hi, Jane. JANE ARRAF, BYLINE: Hi, Noel. KING: So the first time he delivered the sermon in eight years, it is a very different Middle East from the last time he would have given that sermon. What stood out? What were the highlights? ARRAF: It absolutely is a very different Middle East, but some of these themes will sound pretty familiar. He said there would be neither compromise nor surrender, only fight America. He wasn't very complimentary about President Trump. He said Donald Trump is a clown who only pretends to support the Iranian people but will push a poisonous dagger into their backs. All of this as people
