  • The film industry union has reached a tentative agreement with producers. Will it stop a strike?

    wuga.org Wednesday, 20 October 2021 01:30:00

    Negotiators for the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees — the country’s largest film worker union — have reached a tentative agreement with production companies averting a strike. But whether it holds remains to be seen. Earlier this month, nearly 90% of the IATSE's membership moved ahead with authorizing a work strike following complaints of long work hours and poor working conditions across the country. They also took exception to unequal wages on productions for streaming services like Netflix and AppleTV+, which haven't been adjusted in years, even as streaming has become a predominant source of media in the last decade. A document shared on Instagram by the IATSE detailed some of the resolutions that have tentatively been agreed upon — including longer weekend rest periods, expanded sick leave benefits, 10-hour daily rest periods and increased penalties for not providing a meal break.

  • State rests its case against the three deputies charged with murder of Eurie Martin

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 23:55:00

    Caption A frame from dashboard video recorded by Washington County Sheriff's Deputies moments before they electrocuted Eurie Lee Martin, center, to death in 2017. On Monday, the state rested its felony murder case against three former Washington County Sheriff’s deputies in connection to the 2017 stun-gun death of Eurie Martin.  Across almost two full days, prosecutors were allowed to present every piece of video and audio documenting the 2017 encounter between Martin and deputies Henry Copeland, Michael Howell and Rhett Scott. The deputies stopped Martin following a 911 call that labeled him a suspicious person as he walked down a two-lane road running through the town of Deepstep. Among the evidence presented to the jury was testimony from a medical expert that it was the electrocution and not Martin's underlying health issues that caused Martin’s heart to stop as well as a description of how the event violated the Washington County Sheriff’s Office use of force policy.  But the crux

  • This floppy teenage pug can tell you what kind of day you're going to have

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 23:01:00

    Bones or no bones? No, it's not a Halloween thing. It's a forecast of the day's vibe, as predicted by a 13-year-old pug named Noodle and endorsed by his growing legion of TikTok devotees. Noodle and his owner, New York City-based Jonathan Graziano, have won over the Internet with their near-daily videos of a game called "no bones." They're are mostly posted to TikTok , but also shared on Noodle's Instagram account. "Good morning everyone, and welcome back to yet another round of 'no bones,' " Graziano says at the beginning of most of these videos. "The game where we find out if my 13-year-old pug woke up with bones and, as a result, we find out what kind of day we're going to have." The premise is straightforward, and adorable. Graziano hoists a sleepy-looking Noodle out of his fluffy bed. If the pug flops back down, it's a "no bones" day — a time to lay low, avoid risks and cancel plans without regret. If he remains standing, it's a "bones" day, which is a sign to get out there and

  • Complaints about spam texts were up 146% last year. Now, the FCC wants to take action

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 22:48:00

    From phony package delivery notices, to fake requests from banks for personal information, to supposed COVID-19 contact tracers looking for a photo of your vaccine card — text message scams are on the rise in the U.S., costing Americans millions of dollars. Even as the federal government has worked to crack down on robocalls, scam texts have boomed in recent years, and that has captured growing attention inside the Federal Communications Commission. More than 47 billion spam texts have been sent so far in 2021, up 55% from the year before, according to an August report from RoboKiller , a spam blocking company. In 2020, the report estimates, scam texts cost Americans $86 million. The FCC received roughly 14,000 complaints about unwanted text messages in 2020, up 146% from the year before. Already in 2021, the commission has received nearly 10,000 complaints about scam texts. The FCC wants to roll out new rules to address spam texts On Monday, the agency's acting chairwoman, Jessica

  • With clock ticking, Biden meets with progressives and moderates to secure his agenda

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 21:47:00

    Updated October 19, 2021 at 1:03 PM ET With Democrats still at odds over the size and scope of a sweeping social spending package, President Biden will attempt to help bridge the divide in a pair of meetings with moderate and progressive factions of the party. The Tuesday afternoon meetings come less than two weeks ahead of a self-imposed Oct 31. deadline to pass Biden's Build Back Better plan, which includes changes to the social safety net and major investments in climate and education. The original price tag for the plan that Biden refers to as "human infrastructure" was $3.5 trillion. However, centrist Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia has said he can only support a package at $1.5 trillion. Another moderate Democrat, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, also expressed concerns over the initial plan's cost, but she has not publicly indicated what top number she would support. To pass the legislation, Democrats are using a process called budget reconciliation, which requires the support

  • New York City will exile Thomas Jefferson's statue from a prominent spot in city hall

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 21:26:00

    A Thomas Jefferson statue is on its way out of New York's City Council Chamber, after members of the Public Design Commission agreed to take the nation's third president and well-known slaveowner off of his pedestal. The statue currently occupies a prominent spot near the chamber's main dais, where Jefferson has towered over council members for more than 100 years. Jefferson's statue should not be in "a position of honor and recognition and tribute" in the chamber, council member Inez Barron said during a public meeting on Monday about the statue's future, adding that Jefferson "felt that Blacks were inferior to whites — in his own words." It's not clear where the statue will ultimately end up A final spot for the statue is yet to be determined. It was first placed in City Hall around 1834 and was displayed in several locations there before moving to the main chamber in 1915. The statue was commissioned because of Jefferson's support for religious freedom in the U.S. military; it was

  • A woman takes a lead role in Confucian ceremonies, breaking a new path in South Korea

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 21:15:00

    JEONGEUP COUNTY, South Korea — A pig's head sits on an offering table. Men in light-green robes and black hats pour liquor and light incense. They are venerating a ninth century scholar and poet, Choe Chi-won, at a Confucian academy established in his honor over 300 years ago. The academy, Museong Seowon, in this southwestern county of South Korea, incorporates traditional wooden architecture and sits in a picturesque setting, emphasizing humanity's harmony with nature. Academies like this across the country — known in Korean as seowon — have long served as rural education centers for the teachings of the ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius and other illustrious men. Men check ancestral offerings before the spring ceremony starts at Museong Seowon. A painting of Museong Seowon's venerated scholar, Choe Chi-won, a celebrated poet and scholar of Silla kingdom, looks over the offering table.

  • Canada's Trudeau apologizes for skipping remembrance for Indigenous school victims

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 20:20:00

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized in person to Indigenous leaders after skipping a remembrance for victims and survivors of residential schools. Trudeau visited the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation on Monday to offer his mea culpa to Chief Rosanne Casimir for missing the first-ever National Day for Truth and Reconciliation , approved by Canada's parliament in the spring. The prime minister reportedly did not acknowledge invitations to attend the Sept. 30 ceremony, opting instead for a seaside holiday with his family. "I am here today to say I wish I had been here a few weeks ago, and I deeply regret it," Trudeau told the community in British Columbia. "Instead of talking about truth and reconciliation, people talked about me, and that's on me," he said. "I take responsibility for that." From 1831 until the 1990s, Canada's residential school system forcibly separated some 150,000 Indigenous children from their families — subjecting many to starvation and physical and

  • The Orionid meteor shower peaks this week, but it might not be much of a show

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 20:10:00

    The Orionid meteor shower, which appears in the night sky around this time each year, is predicted to peak Thursday morning, according to NASA . But don't get your hopes up for a cosmic show just yet. This year's Orionid shower coincides with a full moon, whose bright glow will make it hard for us here on Earth to see the meteors. "The Orionids are going to, frankly, suck this year," NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke told Space.com . "The moon will be up all night, from sunset to sunrise." Meteors form from the rocky pieces left over after a comet flies past the sun. The showers occur when the Earth passes through one of those fields of debris. In the case of the Orionids, it's the ice and dust that's released by Halley's Comet when it enters the inner solar system, according to NASA. Orionids are known for their speed, careening into Earth's atmosphere at about 148,000 mph. They're also characteristically bright. Put together, that means Orionid meteors can leave glowing "trains" behind

  • Kanye West is now officially 'Ye'

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 20:01:00

    The rapper formerly known as Kanye West is officially now "Ye." A Los Angeles judge approved his petition for a name change on Monday, Deadline reported . He had filed the paperwork back in August, citing "personal reasons." But the change has been in the works for even longer — or at least since 2018, when the famously polarizing artist released a studio album by that name and made his persona Twitter-official. He explained the name's biblical significance in an interview promoting the album that same year. "I believe 'ye' is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible, it means 'you,'" he said. "So I'm you, I'm us, it's us." No word yet on what the judge's decision will mean for Ye's estranged wife Kim Kardashian West, who has kept his (now-former) last name despite filing for divorce in February. He was among the list of celebrities she skewered while hosting Saturday Night Live earlier this month. This story originally appeared on the Morning Edition live blog .

  • Are you ready for some volleyball? A new women's pro league hopes the answer is yes

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 17:01:00

    U.S. women's volleyball is second to none, sitting atop the world rankings. The game is thriving from the youth level up to the Olympics. But every year, the top U.S. women head to international leagues after college. That's because the rest of the world has something the U.S. does not: dozens of women's pro volleyball leagues that are crucial for players to reach the highest level of their sport. "We have 400 girls that have to go abroad if they want to continue in the world of volleyball," Katlyn Gao, the CEO of a new pro league called League One Volleyball, told NPR. "And many of them don't really want to. They want to be closer to home, closer to the communities that they have been brought up in." The players leave because for most of them, the international leagues are the only way they can hone their skills, earn a living and maybe prepare for a shot at the Olympics. Gao's new league is meant to create a new option, to give top American players a reason to stay home rather than

  • Police officers and unions put up a fight against vaccine mandates for public workers

    wuga.org Tuesday, 19 October 2021 16:00:00

    For hundreds of public employees in the state of Washington, where a new vaccine mandate for state employees went into effect this week, Monday was their last day on the job. That includes a sergeant with the Washington State Patrol who told KUOW that he had made an appointment to turn in his patrol car and equipment . In Los Angeles County, Sheriff Alex Villanueva announced earlier this month that he would not carry out the county's mandate for his department's 18,000 employees, warning that the nation's most populous county could lose "5, 10% of my workforce overnight." And in Chicago, the clash between police and city officials over the city's vaccine mandate has grown so contentious that a judge ordered the local union president to stop making public statements after the city's attorney accused him of "municipal sedition and treason." As vaccine mandates for public employees begin to take effect across the country, police officers and the unions that represent them are putting up a
