  • In Executive Actions, Trump Extends Unemployment Benefits, Defers Payroll Taxes

    peoriapublicradio.org Sunday, 9 August 2020 03:06:00

    Updated at 7:18 p.m. ET At his Bedminster, N.J., golf resort on Saturday, President Trump signed four executive actions to provide economic relief amid the coronavirus pandemic. The actions amount to a stopgap measure, after failing to secure an agreement with Congress. The three memorandums and one executive order call for extending enhanced unemployment benefits, taking steps to stop evictions, continuing the suspension of student loan repayments, and deferring payroll taxes. Trump promised that funds would be "rapidly distributed" to Americans in need, although it remains unclear whether the president has the authority to do this unilaterally without congressional approval. In any case, legal challenges are expected, which could delay any disbursement of funds. In one memorandum, Trump authorized the federal government to pay $300 per week for people on unemployment. States would be asked to pay an additional $100, for a total of $400 weekly for unemployed workers. "If they don't,

  • Police Fire Tear Gas As Thousands Express Outrage Over Beirut Explosion

    peoriapublicradio.org Sunday, 9 August 2020 02:13:00

    Thousands of protesters outraged over this week's deadly explosion in Beirut amassed in the Lebanese capital on Saturday, as public anger gave way to clashes with police and the storming of the nation's foreign ministry. Blame for the blast — which killed more than 150 people and injured thousands more — has been widely cast on a culture of corruption and negligence among the nation's ruling class. Demonstrators set up a mock gallows, hanging cardboard cutouts of politicians, including the country's president, Michel Aoun, and Prime Minister Hassan Diab. Skirmishes between protesters began early in the day with protesters hurling rocks and police firing tear gas. Gunfire was heard at the city's Martyrs' Square, according to the BBC, and multiple news organizations reported that protesters had entered the foreign ministry. Once inside the ministry, demonstrators burned a framed photo of Aoun, according to Reuters . The Associated Press reported that protesters were claiming the building

  • Children Can Get Severe COVID-19, CDC Says — Especially Black And Hispanic Children

    peoriapublicradio.org Sunday, 9 August 2020 00:25:00

    While most children who catch the coronavirus have either no symptoms or mild ones, they are still at risk of developing "severe" symptoms requiring admission to an intensive care unit, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a new report released Friday. Hispanic and Black children in particular were much more likely to require hospitalization for COVID-19, with Hispanic children about eight times as likely as white children to be hospitalized, while Black children were five times as likely. Despite persistent rumors that children are " almost immune " from the virus, the analysis of 576 children hospitalized for the virus across 14 states found that one out of three was admitted to the ICU — similar to the rate among adults. Almost 1 in 5 of those were infants younger than 3 months. The most common symptoms included fever and chills, inability to eat, nausea and vomiting. The findings come as school districts across the country are figuring out how to educate the

  • TikTok To Sue Trump Administration Over Ban, As Soon As Tuesday

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 22:46:00

    TikTok is planning to sue the Trump administration, challenging the president's executive order banning the service from the United States. The video-sharing app hugely popular with the smartphone generation will file the federal lawsuit as soon as Tuesday, according to a person who was directly involved in the forthcoming suit but was not authorized to speak for the company. It will be filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, where TikTok's American operations are based, the person said. NPR has learned that the lawsuit will argue that President Trump's far-reaching action is unconstitutional because it failed to give the company a chance to respond. It also alleges that the administration's national security justification for the order is baseless, according to the source. "It's based on pure speculation and conjecture," the source said. "The order has no findings of fact, just reiterates rhetoric about China that has been kicking around." The White

  • Virginia Supreme Court Grants Temporary Moratorium on Evictions

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 21:32:00

    Virginia's Supreme Court has granted a request from Gov. Ralph Northam to temporarily stop evictions proceedings, extending protections for tenants who can't pay their rent through the beginning of September. In a 4-3 ruling Friday, the court agreed to a moratorium on eviction proceedings through Sept. 7, declaring that public safety concerns due to the coronavirus pandemic constituted a "judicial emergency." "The ease with which the COVID-19 virus can spread, the risks associated with traveling to and appearing in the courthouse for those ... with certain health conditions that disproportionately afflict the economically disadvantaged, and the inability of many citizens to access the courts remotely or to hire lawyers who can argue on their behalf, may 'substantially endanger' or 'impede' the 'ability of [tenants] to avail themselves of the court,' " the majority wrote in their decision. Northam praised the decision on Friday. The Democratic governor had requested the moratorium in a

  • Welcome To New York, Traveler. Now Please Begin Your Quarantine

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 20:08:00

    New York City is hitting bridges, tunnels, Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal to intercept travelers — and returning residents — from states designated high-risk by Governor Andrew Cuomo and warn them: isolate yourself for 14 days or risk paying fines up to $10,000. But on the first day of the new program earlier this week, it became clear the enhanced efforts, which build on initiatives already in place at airports, are much more like adding personnel to the information booth than beefing up coronavirus protection at busy travel hubs. "I know what I'm doing," said Harold Cerra, at Penn Station, after getting off an Amtrak train from Florida and brushing quickly past a greeter from Mayor Bill de Blasio's Public Engagement Unit who was handing out flyers. "I take precautions." Cerra, a construction worker from Rockland County, N.Y., had spent three months visiting family in Melbourne, Fla. "It's good to be back — things are pretty crazy down there," he said, through a dark

  • PHOTOS: South Africa's Zip Zap Circus Brings A Big Heart To The Big Top

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 18:43:00

    Editor's note: This story was reported and photographed from February 2019 to March 2020. The text has been updated to reflect the activities of the circus during the pandemic. Phelelani Ndakrokra prefers not to talk about his past. But what the 23-year-old acrobat will say is that if he hadn't joined the circus ten years ago, he'd probably either be dead or in prison by now. "Where I came from it's hard to know what would have happened to me on the streets" says Ndakrokra, who grew up in a part of Cape Town where gang violence is rife. "The circus gave me a platform to feel free and do something I enjoy. It gave me a place to belong." Phelelani Ndakrokra performs an aerial acrobatic dance.

  • A Yazidi Survivor's Struggle Shows The Pain That Endures After ISIS Attack

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 18:00:00

    Um Hiba's trauma over being enslaved, raped and beaten by ISIS after fighters raided her village didn't end when she was freed three years ago. Instead, like thousands of other survivors of the genocide against Yazidis, she languishes, still traumatized, with what's left of her family. The young woman was 16 when she became one of more than 6,000 Yazidis taken captive by the group that considered the ancient religious minority infidels, according to human rights groups. ISIS fighters killed another 3,000 Yazidis after Kurdish security forces protecting the Sinjar region of Iraq withdrew and ISIS took over large parts of northern Iraq in August 2014, say Yazidi activists. Parts of the city of Sinjar in northern Iraq were still not rebuilt in 2019, years after the U.S.-backed fighting by Iraqi and Kurdish forces to oust ISIS. Andrea DiCenzo for NPR Um Hiba means the "mother of Hiba" in Arabic — a customary way of identifying women by the name of their eldest child. NPR is not using her

  • Opinion: Remembering Pete Hamill, The Tabloid Man Whose Greatest Story Was His Own

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 17:56:00

    TAB RAG SCRIBE MAKES LAST DEADLINE! Pete Hamill was a tabloid man: a columnist and top name on the masthead, mostly for the New York Post and Daily News, who wrote punchy, passionate, lyrical chronicles of city life, often for people who had to read them while they held onto a strap, standing on the Number 7 train from Queens. Pete Hamill became tabloid-celebrity on his own, switching in a New York second from rolled-up sleeves and loosened tie on his beat, to black tie for evenings-out, where he squired—that's a good tabloid verb—Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Shirley MacLaine, Linda Ronstadt, and other women of achievement. But those years in the 1960s and early '70s in which Pete Hamill was making his name and telling stories from neighborhoods the more polite and laureled New York newspapers often overlooked, he also spent too many hours on a bar stool in the kind of places tabloids called "watering holes;" and with glitterati literati; and not enough time with his children. One night

  • A Look At The History Of The Nagasaki Bombing, 75 Years Later

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 17:56:00

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit SCOTT SIMON, HOST: Tomorrow is the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki. It was the second time nuclear weapons were used in war and also the last. NPR's Geoff Brumfiel has the story of the bombing and why decisions made afterwards are still a problem today. GEOFF BRUMFIEL, BYLINE: Less than 72 hours after an atomic bomb flattened Hiroshima, another plane took off from a tiny Pacific island. Its mission was to drop America's second nuclear weapon. ALEX WELLERSTEIN: Its initial target was the city of Kokura, which was an arsenal, had a large, built-up military arsenal surrounded by worker's housing. BRUMFIEL: Alex Wellerstein is a historian at the Stevens Institute of Technology. Almost as soon as the bomber left the ground, it ran into trouble. Stormy skies separated it from one of its escort aircraft. WELLERSTEIN: They also had problems with the plane. So it turned out that there were some problems with the fuel valves on this airplane,

Jordan Stivers, who's 19, of the Santa Clara Valley Grange has spent her teenage years rearing livestock for fair competitions and auctions.

Thank you so much for being with us. JORDAN STIVERS: Thank you for having me. SIMON: And we have another guest who is right next to you, right? STIVERS: Yes, this is Pipsqueak, and he was one of two goats that I was raising for this year.

  • Extended Families Living Together Raise Risks For COVID-19 Transmission

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 17:56:00

    Maria Hernandez shares a four-bedroom house in Los Angeles with her husband, Michael Josephy, three of her daughters and her 85-year-old mother. Her 3-year-old granddaughter often stays there, too. To Hernandez, family is everything. Family members are close. So when the pandemic hit, she was worried about her family contracting the coronavirus. "It was a challenge mostly to think about my mother," she said. Hernandez, 50, works night shifts at Ralphs, a grocery store chain in California. She'd been careful while at work and at home, changing out of her clothes every time she got home and sanitizing her house constantly. But one day in late May, she felt a wave of exhaustion hit her. The next day, it got worse. "My husband took me to the emergency room because my fever was up to 102. I had trouble breathing. I felt dizzy. I felt nauseous," she said. Hernandez tested positive for the coronavirus. The next several weeks were a bit of a daze, she recalled. She isolated herself in the

  • From Desert Battlefields To Coral Reefs, Private Satellites Revolutionize The View

    peoriapublicradio.org Saturday, 8 August 2020 17:56:00

    A satellite photo shows the eastern Syrian town of Baghouz, the last holdout of Islamic State fighters in early 2019. Satellite images revealed that many civilians remained in the town, leading to a pause in the bombing by the U.S. and its allies. The red dots, which were added by Human Rights Watch, reflect sites that were bombed. Planet Labs Inc. As the U.S. military and its allies attacked the last Islamic State holdouts last year, it wasn't clear how many civilians were still in the besieged desert town of Baghouz, Syria. So Human Rights Watch asked a private satellite company, Planet , for its regular daily photos and also made a special request for video. "That live video actually was instrumental in convincing us that there were thousands of civilians trapped in this pocket," said Josh Lyons of Human Rights Watch . "Therefore, the coalition forces absolutely had an obligation to stop and to avoid bombardment of that pocket at that time." Which they did until the civilians fled.
