  • Lil Baby On Taking Music Apart To See 'The Bigger Picture'

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 16:01:00

    At only 25, trap star Lil Baby is one of the most popular musicians alive. His most recent album, My Turn , spent weeks at No. 1, and over the past few years he's had four dozen songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100, putting him in a dead heat with Paul McCartney and Prince. Only four years ago, the rapper — born Dominique Jones — had no professional music experience. He grew up poor, with a single mom; he sold drugs as a teenager, in part to help her pay the bills. When that life caught up with him, he spent stints in jail and was eventually sentenced to prison at 19, serving two years on weapons and drug charges. The experience is one reason he's come to think of the current criminal justice system as deeply unjust. "Prison is just sitting you in a room somewhere. What does that do to better you for society? What does that do to help you change?" the artist says, "To me, jail makes you worse.... You don't have a leash on your neck, but you got handcuffs on your wrists. You're not in a

  • 'All You Want Is To Be Believed': Sick With COVID-19 And Facing Racial Bias In The ER

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 15:01:00

    In mid-March, Karla Monterroso flew home to Alameda, Calif. after a hiking trip in Utah's Zion National Park. Four days later she began to develop a bad, dry cough. Her lungs felt sticky. The fevers that persisted for the next nine weeks grew so high — 100.4, 101.2, 101.7, 102.3 — that on the worst night, she was in the shower on all fours, ice cold water running down her back, willing her temperature to go down. "That night I had written down in a journal, letters to everyone I'm close to, the things I wanted them to know in case I died," she remembers. Then came a new batch of symptoms in the second month, headaches and shooting pains in her legs and abdomen that made her worry she could be at risk for the blood clots and strokes that other COVID-19 patients in their thirties were starting to report. But still, she wasn't sure if she should go to the hospital. "As women of color, you get questioned a lot about your emotions and the truth of your physical state. You get called an

  • City Scenes: How Boston's LGBTQ+ Musicians Are Making Space For Each Other

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 15:01:00

    Boston's music scene has produced its share of rock legends. For decades, the stages within its gritty clubs have given rise to big acts like Aerosmith, The Cars, Pixies and more. With time comes change: Towering, overpriced condos are pushing out the city's beloved venues, leaving its emerging talent fewer opportunities to perform. But for artists who never fit the mold of what's expected on those stages (read: white, straight, cis rock), this downsizing phenomenon is an all-too-familiar challenge. "I have often heard that my music is too threatening, a.k.a. too Black or too political, so people are less likely to book me or support me publicly," says rapper and local style icon Billy Dean Thomas . "In general, being the new artist on the block wherever you go is challenging." "But add being Black, nonbinary and a hip-hop artist, and you have the perfect stew of transphobia, sonic racism and a lack of respect or buy-in from cis straight men or cis women, who control a lot of the

  • The Final Biden-Trump Debate Is Thursday. Here's What You Need To Know

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 15:00:00

    With less than two weeks until voting concludes, President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will face off for the final time in a debate on Thursday, likely marking Trump's last chance to reach a massive audience as he trails Biden in polls nationally and in key states. They will share the stage three weeks after their first debate , which was headlined by Trump's near-constant interrupting of both his opponent and the moderator, a tactic that appeared to have hurt him in subsequent polling. The nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates acknowledged the chaos and pledged to add "additional structure" to the format of the remaining debates to avoid a repeat performance. On Monday evening, the commission announced the muting of microphones to start each of Thursday's debate segments. Under the new rules, Biden and Trump will each have two minutes of uninterrupted time at the beginning of each 15-minute segment. Afterward, they can discuss issues with each other

  • CCSD to Require Masks for Return to In-Person Learning

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 05:11:47

    Masks will be required in Clarke County Schools when they reopen to in-person classes on November 9th. That information was part of an update given to parents which provided several details of what the return to in-person learning will look like. Sunday was the deadline for parents to notify the school system of whether their children will continue with virtual learning or head back to school buildings. Students whose parents did not reply will be automatically enrolled in in-person classes. And that choice will be in effect through January 15th when families will likely have to make the choice all over again. Hours of operation have not yet been set. Students will sit two per seat in assigned seats with 48 students at most in a bus. Each school will have a waiting room for students or staff members who are symptomatic as they wait to be picked up by a parent, guardian, or partner. Ventilation systems “are updated and will be frequently monitored,” and will meet engineering and EPA

  • Judge Considers Challenge to CDC Order Halting Evictions

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 04:35:56

    A federal judge in Atlanta is weighing a challenge to a federal order that halts the eviction of certain renters through the end of the year in an effort to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last month issued an order barring landlords from evicting any person covered by the order from a residential property for failure to pay rent. Landlords filed a lawsuit in Atlanta challenging the order and asked the court to prohibit its enforcement while the lawsuit is pending. U.S. District Judge J.P. Boulee heard arguments Tuesday and did not indicate when he might rule on the request.

  • 'Gimme Some Lovin' ' Bandleader Spencer Davis Dead at 81

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 04:31:00

    Spencer Davis, the multi-instrumentalist and leader of the band that bore his name, has died at the age of 81. The Spencer Davis Group recorded such hits as "Gimme Some Lovin' " and "I'm a Man." Davis wasn't the lead singer on either song though, giving that job to a teenage Steve Winwood. Davis died Monday while being treated for pneumonia, according to his tour manager and friend, Bob Birk, who worked with the musician for decades. In a statement to NPR, Birk called him a "highly ethical, very talented, good-hearted, extremely intelligent, generous man." Davis was born in Swansea, Wales, where he started singing in a boys' choir. By the time he was in college, he was invested in jazz and rhythm and blues. One day he ran into a young Winwood and his older brother, Muff, playing some country-blues songs at a bar, and Davis was so blown away that he asked the two to join his band immediately. (Davis told the Phonograph Record in 1971 that the elder Winwood had to join the band simply

  • Trump Environmental Rollback Spurs Mining Near Okefenokee

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 04:30:59

    A mining company's plan to dig outside the federal wildlife refuge in the Okefenokee Swamp is taking a big step forward because of the Trump administration's rollback of environmental rules. The CEO of Twin Pines Minerals said Tuesday that the company plans to mine on 600 acres just a few miles from the swamp's edge without first obtaining a federal permit. That's because the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently determined wetlands within that tract no longer qualify for federal protection. Environmental groups say its an early consequence of environmental rule changes by President Donald Trump that rolled back protections for many streams and wetlands.

  • Candidate Jesse Houle Reacts to GA Supreme Court Ruling

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 04:27:06

    District 6 Commissioner-Elect Jesse Houle won a court battle at the Georgia Supreme Court Monday. Justices ruled unanimously that votes cast for a candidate who dies before Election Day are void. We have a reaction from Houle. “I think the predominant feeling right now is release. I feel like I've been carrying around a lot of weight of uncertainty and now that the Supreme Court has made their ruling, I feel like we can put this part of the saga of 2020 to bed and focus on the places where I’d really like to put more of my attention, and for the next couple of weeks that’ll be this campaign for the Special Election in November, and then after that, most excitedly, the work of the Commission, which is what I’m really enthused about digging in.” Houle now faces opponent Chad Lowery in the November 3rd Special Election to fill the unexpired term of Commissioner Jerry NeSmith, who died three days before the June election.

  • Suits Challenge Emissions by Georgia Sterilizing Company

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 04:26:39

    Two homeowners in Georgia have filed a lawsuit over emissions of a chemical used by a company that sterilizes medical equipment. The Journal-Constitution reports that the attorney for the couple who filed the suit says it’s the first of many such cases. The lawsuit was filed by Bridget and Andrew Kurt of Cobb County against Sterigenics. It seeks damages for lost property value due to emissions of ethylene oxide, a toxic gas the company is legally authorized to use. The company declined comment when contacted by the newspaper.

  • Safety Board Blames California Diving Boat's Owner For Fire That Killed 34

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 04:03:00

    The National Transportation Safety Board has placed the blame for the dive boat fire that killed 34 people on the vessel's owners. The five-member board ruled unanimously on Tuesday that it was a lack of oversight by the owners, Truth Aquatics Inc., that led to the 2019 fire — one of California's deadliest maritime disasters. Investigators said that the burning and sinking of the Conception had made it impossible to pinpoint the exact cause of the fire. But they noted that the blaze started near the back of the deck in the boat's salon, where divers had plugged in smartphones and other devices containing lithium-ion batteries. A sister vessel of the Conception, the Vision, had earlier experienced a fire caused by cellphone chargers, The Washington Post reports – but that fire was detected early and quickly put out. After the Conception fire, the Coast Guard issued a safety bulletin that urged crews to "reduce potential fire hazards and consider limiting the unsupervised charging of

  • Do Masks On Plane Flights Really Cut Your Risk Of Catching COVID-19?

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 03:34:00

    Early in the coronavirus pandemic, air travel looked like a risky endeavor. Some scientists even worried that airplanes could be sites of superspreading events. For example, in March a Vietnamese businesswoman with a sore throat and a cough boarded a flight in London. Ten hours later, she landed in Hanoi, Vietnam; she infected 15 people on the flight, including more than half of the passengers sitting with her in business class. Then in April, airlines shifted course. Many started requiring passengers to wear masks on planes — and some airlines even enforced the policy. Just on Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it now "strongly recommends" all passengers and crew members wear masks. So the big question is this: How well do the masks work? Do they make it safe to fly across the country for a family visit? Scientists are just beginning to answer that question. And their findings offer a glimmer of hope as well as fresh ideas about what's most important for

  • Jason Flom, The Music Executive With An Ear For Injustice

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 03:33:00

    Call it professionalism, but there are some things Cheryl Pilate just can't say. She's a criminal defense attorney in Kansas City, Mo., and toes a fine line between getting attention for her clients' stories and being bound by professional ethics. "As a lawyer, frequently I feel — and I know many others feel — constrained in the language that we use, " she says. "We're mindful of our professional responsibilities and how we need to carry those out." So she can't come out and say, "This case is crazy — just look at what the prosecution is trying to do!" That's where Jason Flom comes in. "Jason has an almost unerring instinct for ferreting out the most dramatic and unjust aspects of a case," Pilate says. "Truly outrageous things can happen, and he zeroes right in on them." Flom is the founder and CEO of Lava Records, a label partnered with Universal that counts Lorde, Greta Van Fleet and Jessie J among its roster of artists. He's had a lot of big jobs in the music industry, having been

  • Game On! The World Series Begins Between The L.A. Dodgers And Tampa Bay Rays

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 03:33:00

    Tonight, it's a familiar moment in an otherwise strange baseball season. Game One of the World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays. First pitch is at 8:09 p.m. ET. Major League Baseball shortened its regular season from the usual 162-games to just 60 because of the coronavirus pandemic. The typical baseball marathon turned into a sprint. Games were played in teams' home stadiums with no fans (except for those cardboard cut-outs). The stillness of the empty ballparks meant every utterance (expletives or otherwise) could be heard clearly on television broadcasts. Some teams even experimented with piping in fake fan noise. Like 2020 in general, it was a season like no other. Early COVID outbreaks almost scuttled MLB's plans altogether when a slew of positive cases hit the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals. The cases rolled through the teams and the teams they played causing postponements and delays. But then, week after week, baseball conducted thousands of

  • Even The Most Successful Women Pay A Big Price In Pandemic

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 03:33:00

    Joyce Chen had big plans for this year. She was working on multiple research projects with an eye on the prize: a promotion to full professor at Ohio State University. That's when the coronavirus pandemic hit. It put the brakes on four years of hard work as an associate professor. And now she wonders if her promotion will happen as she had hoped for next year. Chen is part of a rarefied group of accomplished women who are tenured professors in economics. But she has now joined millions of working moms who have sidelined their work in the pandemic, stepping back from hard-earned careers to take care of the overwhelming needs at home. "It's almost impossible to do research in these kinds of circumstances," says Chen, a mother of three. "There's always something going on, and somebody needs something or something's not working." Chen's son Campbell climbs on the couch as he becomes restless while doing schoolwork at home. Jessica Phelps for NPR While working fathers have not been spared

  • Jamal Khashoggi's Fiancee Sues Saudi Crown Prince Over Journalist's Killing

    wuga.org Wednesday, 21 October 2020 03:12:00

    Hatice Cengiz is suing Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in a U.S. court over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, saying the prince and more than 20 other people should be held responsible for a plot to murder the U.S.-based journalist and democracy advocate. "This brutal and brazen crime was the culmination of weeks of planning and conspiratorial actions taken collectively by Defendants and their co- conspirators," the lawsuit states. Those named along with the crown prince include Saud Al-Qahtani , who allegedly orchestrated the killing – reportedly giving orders to Khashoggi's assailants via Skype. Cengiz and Democracy for the Arab World Now – the nonprofit group Khashoggi led — are seeking to convene a jury trial of the alleged co-conspirators in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The venue was chosen for several reasons, the plaintiffs say, including a belief that courts in Saudi Arabia or Turkey would not provide justice. Khashoggi died two years ago in Istanbul;
