  • For China's Overburdened Delivery Workers, The Customer — And App — Is Always Right

    kalw.org Wednesday, 2 December 2020 03:43:00

    Zhang was the picture of despair the first time I met him. He had accidentally delivered a package to a neighbor of mine who took it and would not give it back. Now, trembling, he wanted to personally reimburse me for the lost item. I refused to take his money, but for two days, he called me nonstop to apologize. At the time, I did not understand why he was so repentant. Then I found out how closely monitored — and severely punished — delivery workers like him are. "Customers complain, and after multiple complaints, we get fined very heavily," says Zhang. NPR spoke with nearly a dozen delivery workers in Beijing for this story and agreed to use only surnames, because the workers could be punished for talking to a reporter. The delivery workers described grueling routines: 12-hour days, six days a week, under the automated and watchful eye of mobile apps that track how and when they deliver hundreds of packages a day. Delivery workers are a critical link in China's on-demand courier

  • The Ripple Effect Of One Rural Colorado Doctor Catching The Coronavirus

    kalw.org Wednesday, 2 December 2020 03:40:00

    Kurt Papenfus, a doctor in the small town of Cheyenne Wells , Colo., started to feel sick around Halloween. He developed a scary cough, intestinal symptoms and a headache. In the midst of a pandemic, the news that he had COVID-19 wasn't surprising, but Papenfus' illness would have repercussions far beyond his own health. Papenfus is the lone full-time emergency room doctor in the town of 900, not far from the Kansas line. "I'm chief of staff and medical director of everything at Keefe Memorial Hospital currently in Cheyenne County, Colo.," he said. Just 62 people in the county have been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to Colorado's coronavirus data website . With Papenfus sick, the hospital scrambled to find a replacement. As coronavirus cases in rural Colorado, and the Eastern Plains especially, surge to unprecedented levels, Papenfus' illness is a test case for how the pandemic is affecting the fragile rural health care system. "He is the main guy. And it is a very large challenge

  • Climate Case Against Shell Begins In The Netherlands

    kalw.org Wednesday, 2 December 2020 02:01:00

    In civil court in The Netherlands, hearings began Tuesday in a case against energy company Shell that could have implications for future cases and the role of companies in meeting climate targets. The case was brought by a group of seven environmental organizations and more than 17,000 Dutch citizens who are co-plaintiffs. The plaintiffs are demanding that Shell be forced to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 45% by 2030 compared with 2019 levels. Friends of the Earth Netherlands, or Milieudefensie, is leading the case . Royal Dutch Shell is an Angl0-Dutch company based in The Hague, where the public hearings are taking place in district court. "This is a unique lawsuit with potentially significant consequences for the climate and the fossil fuel industry globally," Friends of the Earth Netherlands Director Donald Pols said in a statement . "We are confident that the judge's final verdict will force Shell to adhere to international climate goals and stop causing dangerous climate

  • Health Care Workers, Nursing Home Residents To Be Prioritized For COVID-19 Vaccine

    kalw.org Wednesday, 2 December 2020 01:22:00

    Updated 5:48 p.m. ET A federal advisory committee to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted Tuesday to recommend who should get COVID-19 vaccines first once one is authorized for use. The 14 voting members of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices , along with representatives from federal science agencies and the health care industry, voted during an emergency meeting online to recommend that the first COVID-19 vaccines should go to health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities, including nursing homes and assisted living. The CDC estimates that most people in these high-priority groups could be fully vaccinated by early next year, if a vaccine is authorized by the Food and Drug Administration by mid-December, as is currently anticipated. But because supplies will be short in the first few weeks after that authorization, individual health care and long-term care facilities will likely need to determine their own priority schedules for

  • No More Mr. Nice Guy: Hugh Grant Embraces The 'Blessed Relief' Of Darker Roles

    kalw.org Wednesday, 2 December 2020 00:49:00

    After spending much of his career playing the male lead in romantic comedies, actor Hugh Grant is shifting into darker roles. "It's alarming how many pretty unpleasant narcissists I've played or been offered in the last six or seven years," Grant says. "It's certainly been a blessed relief after having to be Mr. Nice Guy for so many years — which is a thankless task for any actor." On the HBO series The Undoing , Grant stars opposite Nicole Kidman as a pediatric oncologist named Jonathan who seems, upon first glance, to be the perfect husband. But the couple's marriage begins to unravel when Jonathan is accused of murder — and Kidman's character learns things about him that lead her to believe he's not quite the person she thought he was. Grant says he used some of his "rom-com charm" in the first episode of the series in order to win the audience over. But, he says, "I also tried always to just keep something vaguely unsettling about him, even in Episode 1. Is this guy too good to be

  • Bipartisan Group Pushes $908B COVID-19 Plan, But McConnell Crafts Bill Trump Will Sign

    kalw.org Tuesday, 1 December 2020 22:53:00

    Updated at 5:15 p.m. ET Just hours after a bipartisan group of House and Senate lawmakers revealed a $908 billion legislative framework to try to break a months-long impasse on a new round of pandemic-related relief measures, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he's talking to administration officials about a separate coronavirus bill that President Trump will sign. "Waiting for next year is not an answer," McConnell said. He also said a spending bill being negotiated now by the House and Senate would serve as a vehicle for passing more pandemic aid. "It will all likely come in one package," McConnell said. McConnell shared a framework of his new proposal totaling more than $500 billion with Republican senators later on Tuesday and said he was awaiting their feedback. Among it's highlights, it would direct $332.7 billion to small businesses, including the popular Paycheck Protection Program, $105 billion for schools and $31 billion for vaccine distribution,

  • 'Help Is On The Way,' Biden Says As He Formally Unveils Economic Team

    kalw.org Tuesday, 1 December 2020 22:52:00

    Updated at 3:37 p.m. ET With confirmed coronavirus cases and hospitalizations spiking and the nation's job market struggling to pull itself out of the abyss caused by the pandemic, President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday formally announced the advisers who he hopes can guide the United States back to solid economic footing. The six-person economic team Biden has tapped — which was revealed on Monday — is a who's who list of veterans from previous Democratic administrations and, if confirmed, includes a number of historic firsts. Speaking from Wilmington, Del., on Tuesday, the president-elect referred to the group as "first rate" and well-equipped to meet the dual challenges the pandemic and the sputtering economy present. "A team that's tested and experienced, it includes groundbreaking Americans who come from different backgrounds but who share my core vision for economic relief here in the United States of America," Biden said. He pointed to what has been a two-track economic recovery

  • Rosy Vaccine Outlook Brightens World Economic Forecast, But Recovery May Be Uneven

    kalw.org Tuesday, 1 December 2020 22:33:00

    New coronavirus vaccines will help the world's economy bounce back in 2021, but the gains will depend on how the vaccines are distributed, among other factors, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development says. In its new projection, the group says global GDP should rise by 4.2% next year, after falling 4.2% in 2020. "The recovery would be stronger if vaccines are rolled out fast, boosting confidence and lowering uncertainty," the organization says in its newly released OECD Economic Outlook, December 2020 . But the pandemic's fallout could bring lasting changes to the world economy, according to the forecast. For instance, Asia will see the strongest growth, while Western nations that are still struggling to control the coronavirus will fare worse. "China, which started recovering earlier, is projected to grow strongly, accounting for over one-third of world economic growth in 2021," OECD Chief Economist Laurence Boone said in the report. "The contribution of Europe and

  • Gaza's Hamas Leader Gets Coronavirus As Palestinian Territories' Cases Surge

    kalw.org Tuesday, 1 December 2020 22:04:00

    The leader of the Islamist group that rules the Gaza Strip has tested positive for the coronavirus as infections reach record levels in the Palestinian territories. Hamas leader Yehiya Sinwar is in stable condition, according to Gaza's Health Ministry. He is one of several senior Hamas officials who have tested positive for the coronavirus in recent months. "The situation in Gaza is really concerning. The recent spike of cases has put the health system in a critical situation," said Ignacio Casares of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Gaza. With 2 million residents, Gaza has one of the densest populations in the world. Gaza's Health Ministry says 30% of coronavirus tests have come back positive in recent days. There have been about 22,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in Gaza, and 815 new cases were reported Tuesday, the territory's highest single-day tally of new infections since the start of the pandemic. The numbers could be higher as local health authorities can handle

  • After Trump, Europe's Populist Leaders Will Have 'Lost One Of Their Cheerleaders'

    kalw.org Tuesday, 1 December 2020 20:26:00

    On the day after the U.S. election, millions of votes in swing states were still being counted and there was no winner yet. But that didn't stop Janez Jansa, the prime minister of Slovenia, birthplace of first lady Melania Trump, from posting a congratulatory tweet, cheering on a second term for President Trump – and bashing the mainstream media for good measure. After the election was called for Joe Biden, Polish President Andrzej Duda composed a carefully worded tweet that congratulated the president-elect "for a successful presidential campaign," but stopped short of acknowledging that Biden would be the next U.S. president. He added that Poland would instead wait for the results of the Electoral College. Eastern Europe's populist leaders are having a hard time accepting that Trump has lost. "I'm not so sure it's a big loss for the populations. I think it's a big loss for the individual leaders, frankly," says Judy Dempsey, a nonresident senior fellow at Carnegie Europe. President

  • Another Mysterious Monolith Suddenly Appears — This Time In Romania

    kalw.org Tuesday, 1 December 2020 19:36:00

    Cue the X-Files theme, folks. The monolith mystery has deepened. Less than two weeks after authorities stumbled across a mysterious metal object standing freely in the Utah desert — and just days after it disappeared — a similar monolith has been reported nearly halfway around the world. Residents in the Romanian city of Piatra Neamt say they have found another odd item that could have been ripped from the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey . The local newspaper reports that the monolith, like the one discovered in Utah, is about 10 to 12 feet tall and apparently composed entirely of a dimly reflective metal. It was reportedly found standing on the Bâtca Doamnei plateau, near an archaeological site overlooking the city. Jurnal FM, a local radio station, recorded video of the purported object, revealing an eye-aching sheen and looped markings along its surface. Andrei Carabelea, mayor of Piatra Neamt, appears to be taking the news in stride. "There is no reason to panic for those who think

To see more, visit LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST: Top health officials are calling for Americans to get tested for coronavirus or quarantine if they traveled over the Thanksgiving holiday. That's because cases in most parts of the U.S. are at historic highs, and officials are bracing for the pandemic to get worse. Well, new results from a major national survey about the pandemic help explain how we got here and display a major partisan divide in people's behavior.

  • Assailants Attack City In Southern Brazil In Series Of Brazen Early Morning Heists

    kalw.org Tuesday, 1 December 2020 17:52:00

    An armed gang launched an early morning attack on a southern Brazilian city Tuesday. The group methodically set up road blocks before going on a bank robbing and hostage-taking spree that ended in a gunfight with police. The men attacked the Southern Brazilian city of Criciúma, located more than 800 miles south of Rio de Janeiro, and robbed several banks early Tuesday morning. Two people, one a police officer, were injured during the siege. Several people, identified as municipal workers painting crosswalks, were taken hostage by the robbers and forced to act as human shields between the assailants and police. They were later released unharmed, according to Criciúma Mayor Clésio Salvaro, who spoke to Brazil's Globo News . Salvaro posted on Twitter just after 2:30 a.m. local time saying, "Criciúma is the target of a major assault." He urged residents to stay home. Videos shared on social media showed deserted city streets with the sound of gunfire going off in the distance. In one video
