  • Postal Workers Decry Changes And Cost-Cutting Measures

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 04:16:00

    Postmaster General Louis DeJoy's plans to shake up the agency are gathering opposition from some of its workers. The U.S. Postal Service has had financial problems for years. It lost $9 billion last year. It's not supported by tax dollars; it's funded by postage and services. DeJoy, who formerly headed a logistics company, said the agency is in a "financially unsustainable position, stemming from substantial declines in mail volume, and a broken business model." DeJoy has already prohibited postal workers from working overtime. He noted that an inspector general report found billions of dollars spent on overtime costs in fiscal year 2019. He wants late-arriving mail to be left behind and delivered the following day . On Friday, he announced a new organizational structure for the agency's executives. Postal workers and their unions are alarmed. "Mail is beginning to pile up in our offices, and we're seeing equipment being removed," said Kimberly Karol, president of the Iowa Postal

  • In Historic Pick, Joe Biden Taps Kamala Harris To Be His Running Mate

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 04:15:00

    Updated at 7 p.m. ET Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has picked Sen. Kamala Harris of California as his running mate. The selection will make Harris the third woman and first Black and first Asian American candidate to be nominated for vice president by a major political party. "These aren't normal times," Biden said in an email to supporters Tuesday afternoon, referencing the coronavirus pandemic and calls for racial justice. "I need someone working alongside me who is smart, tough, and ready to lead. Kamala is that person." Harris tweeted that she's "honored" to join the ticket, saying Biden can "unify the American people because he's spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he'll build an America that lives up to our ideals." In his note, Biden also referred to Harris' friendship with his late son, Beau. Harris and Beau Biden were state attorneys general at the same time. "[Beau] had enormous respect for her and her work,"

  • Judge: Postage Requirement for Mail Ballots Isn't a Poll Tax

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 04:06:06

    A federal judge on Tuesday rejected an argument from voting rights groups that requiring voters to provide their own stamps for mail-in ballots and ballot applications amounts to an unconstitutional poll tax. A lawsuit filed in April by voting rights groups alleged that the requirement effectively imposes a poll tax and is an unjustifiable burden on the right to vote. U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg acknowledged the potential difficulties of in-person voting, particularly during a pandemic, but said that its availability means that the postage requirement is not tantamount to an unconstitutional poll tax.

Now, the Pac-12 followed suit after a meeting among its presidents, not only announcing that it would be postponing fall football or all fall sports,

  • 'Alarming' Trend: TSA Intercepting Many More Guns Despite Far Fewer Air Travelers

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 03:30:00

    The Transportation Security Administration says despite a huge drop in air travel since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the agency's officers found three times as many firearms last month in carry-on luggage as they did during the same period last year. In a statement , the agency said the statistic was "particularly alarming, given that TSA screened about 75% fewer passengers in July 2020, over the previous year's volume." It said in 2019, its officers detected 5.1 guns per million travelers as compared with 15.3 guns per million travelers last month. "Even more concerning is that 80% of the firearms coming into the checkpoint are loaded and it's just an accident waiting to happen," TSA Administrator David Pekoske said. "Travelers need to know that if they bring a gun to the security checkpoint, regardless of whether it is in a handbag, knapsack, roller-bag or strapped to their belt, it will be an inconvenient and expensive mistake on their part," he said. The federal penalty for

  • TSA Finds 3 Times Usual Rate Of Guns At Checkpoints, Despite Drop In Air Traffic

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 03:30:00

    The number of people flying on commercial jetliners is down 75% from last summer, but the rate of those getting caught either inadvertently or deliberately trying to bring a gun on board is soaring. Transportation Security Administration officers are finding guns in carry on bags at security checkpoints at a rate three times higher than they did last summer. And 80% of those guns are loaded. The TSA reports that officers seized more than 300 guns from backpacks, shoulder bags, purses and other carry on baggage in July, a rate of 15.3 guns for every one million people screened. That's compared to a rate of 5.1 guns per million people screened in July of last year. The rate is "particularly alarming, given that TSA screened about 75% fewer passengers in July 2020, over the previous year's volume," the agency said in a news release.

  • Parents Of Elijah McClain Sue City Of Aurora, Colo., And Police Over His Death

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 03:19:00

    The parents of Elijah McClain, a Black man who died last year after police twice put him in a chokehold and paramedics sedated him, have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit. The lawsuit names as defendants the city of Aurora, Colo., as well as numerous Aurora police officers, a paramedic and the medical director of Aurora Fire Rescue. McClain was not suspected of committing any crimes when police approached him, as Colorado Public Radio's Allison Sherry reported : "McClain, a professional massage therapist, is described as a gentle soul, an animal lover and a self-taught violinist in the 106-page civil rights complaint. "McClain was walking back from a convenience store, where he had purchased iced tea, on Aug. 24, 2019, when officers attempted to take him into custody, pinning him down for 18 minutes — 15 of those minutes he was handcuffed, according to the complaint. "They were responding to a 911 call of a man walking down the street looking 'sketchy.' " " 'My name is Elijah

  • A Prophet Of Soil Gets His Moment Of Fame

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 03:05:00

    More than 40 years ago, in Nigeria, a young scientist named Rattan Lal encountered an idea that changed his life — and led, eventually, to global recognition and a worldwide movement to protect the planet's soil. Lal was fresh out of graduate school, recruited to join the newly established International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, and given an assignment that, in hindsight, seems ridiculous in its ambition. "I was 25 years old, in charge of a lab, given the mandate of improving quality and quantity of food production in the tropics!" Lal says. He struggled. The problem was the soil. Because of climate and geological history, it was more fragile than what he'd seen in India, where he grew up, or Ohio, where he'd received his Ph.D. Lal cleared parts of the forest for his research plots, but when the soil lost its vegetation and was exposed to sun and rain, it quickly deteriorated. What Lal calls the "life blood of the soil" — the so-called organic matter, made of microbes and

  • The Oil Spill At Mauritius Is A Disaster. And It Could Soon Get Worse

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 02:07:00

    A Japanese cargo ship struck a reef off the coast of Mauritius more than two weeks ago and has now leaked more than 1,000 metric tons of oil into the pristine waters and unique ecosystems of the island nation. Mauritius has declared a state of environmental emergency, and the French government has sent technical support to assist with the disaster response. In addition, independently-organized local volunteers have been working to clean up and protect beaches with improvised materials. But an even bigger danger looms. A crack inside the ship's hull has been growing, and government officials warn the entire ship could split in half, releasing all the oil remaining inside the vessel. Efforts are underway to pump that oil out of the ship before it breaks apart. As of Tuesday, just over 1,000 metric tons of oil had been pumped out of the ship, while some 1,800 metric tons of fuel oil and diesel remain on board, according to the company that owns the ship. A large patch of leaked oil

  • Las Vegas Casinos Are Open At 50% Capacity. What About Las Vegas Hospitals?

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 01:52:00

    After a 90% drop in visitors during its lockdown, the Las Vegas area has spent the summer trying to regain its economic footing while battling a resurgence of the coronavirus that is straining the health care system. Even with recent gains in slowing the spread, Nevada still has one of the highest rates of new infections relative to its population in the country, rivaling some of the hardest hit southern states . Its positivity rate — another key metric — shows more than 15% of tests are coming back positive. Last week, Nevada's Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak warned the state was in a "precarious position" as it moved from a statewide "phased" approach to a more targeted, long-term mitigation plan. An NPR analysis shows that the rapid growth in new cases relative to the number of hospital beds available in the Las Vegas area could signal a problem. The region's hospitals are not near capacity yet, but some individual facilities have been getting close, according to the Nevada Hospital

  • 'We Can't Stand It Anymore': Bolivian Protesters Demand Quick Elections

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 01:46:00

    Anti-government blockades in Bolivia have entered their second week amid escalating political tensions, violent confrontations and government allegations that protesters are causing deaths by stopping supplies from reaching coronavirus patients. The protests are deepening the crisis facing a nation already struggling to cope with a pandemic which officials say has so far killed more than 3,700 people and infected more than 91,600. The highway blockades are organized by labor unions alongside rural and indigenous groups allied to the socialist party of ousted former president Evo Morales. Last week, they launched an open-ended campaign of strikes, marches and barricades in a bid to pressure Bolivia's unelected interim government to bring forward presidential elections after electoral authorities twice postponed these, citing the coronavirus. Bolivia has become increasingly polarized since November, when Morales, its first indigenous president, was pushed out after nearly 14 years in

  • 'Hispanic,' 'Latino,' or 'Latinx'? Survey Says...

    wuga.org Wednesday, 12 August 2020 01:44:00

    We've been using the term "Latinx" on NPR's Code Switch podcast regularly. But new research shows it hasn't really caught on among Latino adults in the U.S.: While one in four have heard of the term, only 3% use it. The Pew Research Center's national survey of Latinos queried more than 3,000 respondents about the term Latinx, and I spoke with their director of global migration and demography research, Mark Hugo Lopez, about their findings. Our conversation has been condensed and edited for clarity. In Pew's latest survey of Latinx adults living in the United States, you found that only three percent self-identify as Latinx. What's being used instead? Pew Research Center What we found is that "Hispanic" is preferred by far. Then, Latino, and finally, as you noted, a very small share say that they prefer Latinx. But there's another important finding in the report, which is about awareness of the term. Latinx is a relatively new umbrella term on the scene. It's been around for about 20
