  • Colombia's Former Prison Island Gorgona Is Open For Tourists — And Snakes

    wuga.org | Sun, 08 Dec 2019 14:00:00 +0000

    Guides hand out knee-high rubber boots before leading visitors on hikes around Gorgona National Park, an island 21 miles off Colombia's Pacific coast. The boots provide traction in the mud — and protection from poisonous snakes. The presence of scary reptiles is just one reason why the park remains largely unexplored by outsiders. It doesn't help that it is better known for its days as a kind of Colombian Devil's Island, when it housed a penal colony for 1,200 hardened criminals, from the 1960s-80s. Also, when tourism started to take off in Colombia a few years ago, Marxist guerrillas raided the island. It's like a mini-Galápagos. - Jorge Ramírez, manager of Gorgona's only resort "Tourism on Gorgona has always been a challenge," Julia Miranda, director of Colombia's national park system, told NPR. But for adventure-seekers there's a lot to love about Gorgona. Fishing is prohibited so there are plenty of sharks, rays and other marine life to enthrall scuba divers. It's a prime spot for

  • Alaska Cod Fishery Closes And Industry Braces For Ripple Effect

    wuga.org | Sun, 08 Dec 2019 12:01:00 +0000

    In an unprecedented response to historically low numbers of Pacific cod, the federal cod fishery in the Gulf of Alaska is closing for the 2020 season. The decision, announced Friday, came as little surprise, but it's the first time the fishery has closed due to concerns over low stock. "We're on the knife's edge of this over-fished status," North Pacific Fishery Management Council member Nicole Kimball said during talks in Anchorage. It's not over-fishing to blame for the die-off, but rather, climate change. Warming ocean temperatures linked to climate change have wreaked havoc on a number of Alaska's fisheries in recent years, decimating stocks and jeopardizing the livelihoods of fishermen and locals alike who rely on the industry. A stock assessment this fall put Gulf cod populations at a historic low, with "next to no" new eggs, according to Steven Barbeaux, a research biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, who authored the report. At their current

  • Soupy Study: Minestrone Could Be A Secret Weapon Against Malaria

    wuga.org | Sun, 08 Dec 2019 12:00:00 +0000

    Bring in some soup. The unusual homework assignment at London's Eden Primary School was for a science week project cooked up by parent Jake Baum . He's a professor of cell biology and infectious diseases at Imperial College London, and his lab's job is to find new ways to combat malaria, which kills half a million children each year. Baum figured he could teach young students about the process of medical research through something both tasty and understandable: the go-to soup recipes their families use when someone gets sick. "What makes a good medicine versus hocus-pocus?" explains Baum, who regularly preps his own favorite home remedy, what he calls "Jewish grandmother's chicken soup." "It was not the plan to discover anything," he adds. Sixty students transported their soup submissions to school in 15 milliliter plastic tubes – that's about 1 tablespoon. The soup was frozen, thawed (standard practice for samples) and then (much to the children's delight) centrifuged – spun in a

  • Eat For 10 Hours. Fast For 14. This Daily Habit Prompts Weight Loss, Study Finds

    wuga.org | Sun, 08 Dec 2019 11:00:00 +0000

    There's a lot of enthusiasm for intermittent fasting — a term that can encompass everything from skipping a meal each day to fasting a few days a week . Or, how about this approach: Simply limit your daily eating window to 10 hours. This means that if you take your first bite of food at 8 a.m., you'd need to consume your last calorie of the day by 6 p.m. A new study published in Cell Metabolism offers some evidence that the approach can be beneficial. Researchers tracked a group of overweight participants who followed this approach for about three months. "Typically, people would go for an 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. eating window," explains Dr. Pam Taub , a cardiologist at the University of California, San Diego's School of Medicine, and an author of the study. During the fasting period, participants were encouraged to stay hydrated with water. Each day, they logged the timing of their meals and their sleep in an app. "We saw a 3% reduction in their weight and a 4% reduction in abdominal

  • Big Money Is Building A New Kind Of National Park In The Great Plains

    wuga.org | Sun, 08 Dec 2019 11:00:00 +0000

    This story was supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. A privately funded, nonprofit organization is creating a 3.2 million-acre wildlife sanctuary — American Prairie Reserve — in northeastern Montana, an area long known as cattle country. But the reserve is facing fierce opposition from many locals because to build it, the organization is slowly purchasing ranches from willing sellers, phasing out the cows and replacing them with wild bison. Those private properties are then stitched together with vast tracts of neighboring public lands to create one giant, rewilded prairie. The organization has purchased close to 30 properties so far, but it needs at least 50 more. Loading... Don't see the graphic above? Click here "I see them coming in with big money, buying up ranches and walking over the top of the people who are already here," says ranch owner Conni French. "For them to be successful in their goals, we can't be here, and that's not OK with us." She isn't alone.

  • Pensacola Gunman, Victims Identified

    wuga.org | Sat, 07 Dec 2019 23:14:00 +0000

    Updated at 10:35 p.m. ET The U.S. Navy has identified the three sailors killed by a shooter in an attack at Naval Air Station Pensacola Friday as Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23, from Coffee Ala.; Airman Mohammed Sameh Haitham, 19, from St. Petersburg, Fla.; and Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters, 21, from Richmond Hill, Ga. All three were students at Naval Aviation Schools Command. Earlier Saturday, the family of Joshua Kaleb Watson identified him as one of the three people killed Friday. Authorities say the gunman, a Saudi aviation student , also injured eight others before a sheriff's deputy killed him. The FBI identified the shooter as Mohammed Alshamrani, a 21-year-old second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force. He was a student naval flight officer of Naval Aviation Schools Command. Late Friday, several hours after the shooting took place, Adam Watson of Anniston, Ala., confirmed the death of his youngest brother in a Facebook post , calling him "a hero." "Joshua Kaleb

  • Zimmerman Lawsuit Against Trayvon Martin's Family Alleges Defamation

Zimmerman was acquitted of homicide in connection with the killing, but he is now suing Martin's family, the family's attorney and a law enforcement agency for more than $100 million. The suit claims that Zimmerman was the victim of a conspiracy and malicious prosecution and that he has been defamed. Now, while the merits of the suit and the eye-catching demands have been widely reported, one detail has not been - Zimmerman's lawyer. He's being represented by Larry Klayman, who is known for prolific filing of lawsuits in support of long-debunked conspiracy theories. For example, he spent years denouncing President Obama as a closet Muslim who was not born in the United States. We wanted to learn more about Larry Klayman and his work, so we've called on Heidi Beirich. She leads the Southern Poverty Law Center's

  • As Impeachment Inquiry Moves Forward, Questions Around Pompeo Continue To Swirl

    wuga.org | Sat, 07 Dec 2019 13:30:00 +0000

    As the impeachment inquiry against President Trump continues its march through Congress, questions are churning around his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo. For example, did he know, as witnesses testified before House investigators, that President Trump sought political favors from Ukraine in exchange for millions in U.S. assistance? Why did he take days to reveal he was on the now infamous July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy? And does he believe allies of the president who — despite the findings of the intelligence community — claim that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 election? For Pompeo, the questions surrounding what he knew about the Ukraine affair, and when, reflect the outsized role he has assumed as one of the president's most influential advisers. It is a position that just four years ago would have seemed unlikely for Pompeo, yet underscores the extent to which the political fortunes of the onetime Trump critic have grown

  • The Music And Morality Of Beethoven's Mighty Ninth

    wuga.org | Sat, 07 Dec 2019 13:30:00 +0000

    Ever since Beethoven 's iconic Ninth Symphony premiered May 7, 1824 at the Theater am Kärntnertor in Vienna, it has remained arguably the most popular composition in the classical music canon, thanks largely to its final movement, the "Ode to Joy," with a text by poet Friedrich Schiller. But Beethoven's music has become something much more than popular. With its expansive length, mold-busting design, and the inclusion of solo singers and chorus, he was proposing nothing less than a philosophy for humanity. Beethoven, the composer-philosopher, was a man who suffered more than we can imagine and yet he retained optimism and a sense of hope that we can admire and even envy. He believed wholeheartedly in the goodness of humanity, the power of love, joy, unity, tolerance and peace to overcome and endure. I am convinced that we inherently know and feel these aspirations when we hear Beethoven's Ninth and are drawn to it both musically and morally. Beethoven's Ninth has become synonymous with

  • In A Warming Greenland, A Farming Family Adapts To Drought — And New Opportunities

    wuga.org | Sat, 07 Dec 2019 13:01:00 +0000

    On a pitch-perfect autumn afternoon, a remote sheep farm in southern Greenland is quiet. The only movement is from a little girl playing outside her house with a fluffy border collie puppy. The silence is abruptly broken when dozens of sheep come thundering across the hills overlooking the farm. Shooing them along is the girl's grandfather, Lars Nielsen, and her dad, 37-year-old Kunuk Nielsen. As the sheep move toward the farm's two bright-red barns, Lars Neilsen's wife, Makkak, and a couple of farmhands join in, banging stones and sticks together, shouting, and letting loose with something close to a yodel. Two border collies race next to the herd, keeping any stragglers in line. Makkak Nielsen runs out to the field to stop the sheep from going the wrong way as her husband and son bring them in towards the farm. Claire Harbage / NPR Three-year-old Panu looks on as her father Kunuk (left) and grandfather Lars get the sheep into the barn. Claire Harbage / NPR This is the annual roundup

  • Biden Doubles Down On Heated Town Hall Where He Called Voter A 'Damn Liar'

    wuga.org | Sat, 07 Dec 2019 12:56:00 +0000

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is defending himself against criticism over a heated town hall earlier this week in which he called a voter a "damn liar" and challenged him to a pushup contest and IQ test. The voter, an 83-year-old retired farmer, asked about Biden's and his son Hunter's work in Ukraine, making some false accusations about it. He also said Biden was too old to run for president. In a nearly two-minute exchange caught on video that was widely shared, Biden raised his voice as he forcefully pushed back on the voter's allegations. Biden also seemed to comment on the voter's appearance: After the the man said he saw one allegation on TV, Biden replied, "I know you do ... I'm not sedentary." "The fact of the matter is, this guy stood up, and he was, in fact, lying," Biden said in an interview Friday evening with NPR Morning Edition host Rachel Martin on his campaign bus on the way to Decorah, Iowa. "And I just pointed out, 'You're a liar.' It's, it's a fact. He lied, period

  • Meet The Womanikin, The Breasted Vest Working To Close The CPR Gender Gap

    wuga.org | Sat, 07 Dec 2019 12:31:00 +0000

    When students in wilderness EMT Alice Henshaw's training courses grab practice dummies for CPR drills, they have their choice of a traditional, flat-chested training manikin or one that looks a little different: a manikin zipped into a neoprene vest with silicone breasts. That's the Womanikin, a universal attachment for CPR dummies created by New York-based ad agency Joan Creative in partnership with The United State of Women . The idea behind this breasted vest — and the related awareness campaign — is to address gender disparities in training and performance of CPR, which is vital for anyone experiencing cardiac arrest. Research shows that bystanders are less likely to perform CPR on women than men, and experts say superficial anatomical differences may lead people to assume chest compressions must be performed differently on men and women, which is not true. The Womanikin campaign is part of a larger discussion among public health advocates working to solve this problem. "It's not

  • American Student Xiyue Wang Freed In U.S.-Iran Prisoner Swap

    wuga.org | Sat, 07 Dec 2019 12:31:00 +0000

    Updated at 5:03 p.m. ET Iran freed an American held prisoner for the past three years, the White House said Saturday, while Iran confirmed the U.S. was freeing an Iranian scientist held in America in return. The prisoner swap involves Xiyue Wang, a naturalized U.S. citizen and graduate student at Princeton University, who had been in an Iranian prison on espionage charges. Meanwhile, the U.S. released an Iranian scientist named Massoud Soleimani, who had been accused by American officials of violating trade sanctions. The White House confirmed Wang's release in a statement Saturday, saying "freeing Americans held captive is of vital importance." The administration added: "After more than three years of being held prisoner in Iran, Xiyue Wang is returning to the United States. A Princeton University graduate student, Mr. Wang had been held under the pretense of espionage since August 2016." The White House also praised "our Swiss partners" for help brokering the release with the Iranian
