  • Ice Bucket Challenge Co-Creator Dies At 37

    kalw.org Monday, 23 November 2020 13:24:00

    Patrick Quinn, the co-creator of the viral Ice Bucket challenge, has died at the age of 37 after a seven-year fight with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. The Ice Bucket Challenge, which took the Internet by storm in 2014, raised $115 million for the ALS Association and more than $220 million around the world for ALS research, according to the association. "Pat fought ALS with positivity and bravery and inspired all around him. Those of us who knew him are devastated but grateful for all he did to advance the fight against ALS," the ALS Association said in a statement online Sunday. Participants of the Ice Bucket Challenge, which at its height consisted of celebrities, former presidents, and famous athletes, would take videos of themselves dumping buckets of ice water on their heads. They would then nominate others to do the same and donate to ALS research. Quinn started the Ice Bucket Challenge, teaming up with Pete Frates, another ALS

  • Biden Reportedly To Choose Antony Blinken For Secretary Of State

    kalw.org Monday, 23 November 2020 12:15:00

    President-elect Joe Biden will reportedly nominate Antony Blinken for the coveted secretary of state post. Blinken served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser under Obama. He also previously worked as then-Vice President Biden's national security adviser. Blinken is currently managing partner at WestExec Advisors, an advisory firm he co-founded. His pick as secretary of state was first reported by Bloomberg News . A formal announcement of his nomination and other initial Biden administration Cabinet picks is expected Tuesday. If confirmed, Blinken's early work, according to The Associate Press , would be focused heavily on repairing relationships between Washington and foreign governments and allies that have been strained under President Trump's "America First" policy, in which long-held alliances have frequently been challenged. Blinken will also be tasked with boosting the beleaguered State Department, an agency that has experienced substantial turnover

  • China Moon Mission Will Try To Bring Back The First Lunar Rocks In Decades

    kalw.org Monday, 23 November 2020 05:49:00

    China is planning to launch an uncrewed spacecraft to the moon on Tuesday, which will shovel up lunar rocks and soil and bring them back to Earth. If successful, it would be the first time any country has retrieved samples from the moon in more than 40 years. The mission, called Chang'e-5, is part of a series of complex trips to the moon by the China National Space Administration (CNSA). In January 2019, China landed a spacecraft on the far side of the moon — something that had never been done before. If successful, China will be only the third country ever to have retrieved samples from the moon, following the United States and the Soviet Union in the 1960s and 1970s. The spacecraft is expected to launch from Wenchang Space Launch Center on Hainan Island, China, early Tuesday local time, which will be about 3:25 p.m. ET on Monday, according to Space Launch Now , a site that tracks rocket launches around the world. It will collect about 4 pounds of surface material from a previously

    LEILA FADEL, HOST: Last night, President Trump received another loss in court. A federal judge in Pennsylvania dismissed the campaign's attempts to stop the certification of Pennsylvania's votes. This is just the latest of more than two dozen failed challenges brought by the Trump campaign to overturn the election results. President Trump refuses to concede, and for the most part, his party has supported his efforts to pursue legal challenges based on false allegations of widespread voter fraud. Very few high-profile Republicans have publicly acknowledged Joe Biden as the winner, but one of them is John Kasich. He's the former governor of Ohio and a 2016 Republican presidential candidate, and he joins us now. Governor Kasich, welcome. JOHN KASICH: Thanks, Leila. Glad to be with you. FADEL: So you endorsed President-elect Joe Biden. He won this election. What do you make of President Trump's attempts to overturn the results? KASICH: (Laughter) It's just absurd.

  • Somalia's Strongest Tropical Cyclone Ever Recorded Could Drop 2 Years' Rain In 2 Days

    kalw.org Monday, 23 November 2020 04:30:00

    The strongest tropical cyclone ever measured in the northern Indian Ocean has made landfall in eastern Africa, where it is poised to drop two years' worth of rain in the next two days. Tropical Cyclone Gati made landfall in Somalia on Sunday with sustained winds of around 105 mph. It's the first recorded instance of a hurricane-strength system hitting the country. At one point before landfall, Gati's winds were measured at 115 mph. "Gati is the strongest tropical cyclone that has been recorded in this region of the globe; further south than any category 3-equivalent cyclone in the North Indian Ocean," said Sam Lillo, a researcher with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Physical Sciences Laboratory. Its intensification from about 40 mph to 115 mph was "the largest 12-hour increase on record for a tropical cyclone in the Indian Ocean," Lillo added. "The system may impact Socotra, Somalia, Yemen and western Oman from [Sunday] night into Monday and potentially Tuesday,

  • Public Officials Campaign To Keep People Home For Thanksgiving

    kalw.org Monday, 23 November 2020 03:39:00

    Across the country, public officials are urging people to stay home and stay safe during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday amid a dramatic rise in new cases of COVID-19 in nearly every state. Experts warn that the holiday week will be a crucial time for fighting the virus, and that even limited family gatherings could result in devastatingly high numbers of newly infected people. Hospitals are already reaching capacity around the country, as the country hit the grim milestone of 12 million confirmed cases . Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly recommended people stay home for Thanksgiving. "Celebrating virtually or with the people you live with is the safest choice this Thanksgiving," the CDC advised. From Oregon to Illinois to Maryland , governors have instituted stricter statewide restrictions ahead of the holiday. Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a curfew for most of the state that went into effect Saturday night, as cases in California

  • Americans Could See A Vaccine By Mid-December, Says Operation Warp Speed Adviser

    kalw.org Monday, 23 November 2020 03:32:00

    Moncef Slaoui, the chief scientific adviser for Operation Warp Speed, says that some Americans could start receiving a COVID-19 vaccine by the second week of December. Slaoui's comments follow the announcement on Friday that Pfizer and its partner, BioNTech , have asked the Food and Drug Administration to grant an emergency use authorization for its COVID-19 vaccine — which has been found to be 95% effective. A second vaccine from the biotech company Moderna is expected to be submitted for emergency authorization soon as well. "Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval, so I would expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December," Slaoui told CNN on Sunday. While millions of people in the U.S. could be vaccinated in the weeks and months following an emergency use authorization, Slaoui said it will be well into 2021 before the nation would be able to achieve herd immunity. "Normally, with the level of

  • Elephant Rescued After Falling Into A Well In Indian Village

    kalw.org Monday, 23 November 2020 03:18:00

    It took more than 12 hours, but an elephant in India's southern state of Tamil Nadu has been rescued after plunging into a well. The elephant had wandered into the village of Dharmapuri from a nearby forest when it fell into the well, which an official for the Indian Forest Service estimated to be about 50 feet deep. The well did not have a barrier and had been obscured by bushes. Locals from the village alerted authorities about the trapped animal early on Thursday. They dropped banana leaves down the well for the elephant to eat, as rescuers worked throughout the night to free it, the BBC reports . Forest officials brought in a crane to retrieve the elephant. Footage of the rescue showed the elephant strapped in by belts and suspended upside down as the crane lifted it to safety. Doctors helped rescuers sedate the animal after it attacked pipes they were using to pump water out of the well, a district forest officer told Reuters.

  • FDA Grants Emergency Authorization For A 2nd COVID-19 Antibody Treatment

    kalw.org Sunday, 22 November 2020 23:00:00

    One of the experimental drugs that President Trump received while he was battling the coronavirus has been approved for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration. The drug, made by the biotech company Regeneron, is the second antibody treatment to win emergency use approval from the FDA. The treatment combines two antibodies — casirivimab and imdevimab — and administers them together by IV. In a clinical trial of about 800 people, the combination was shown to significantly reduce virus levels within days of treatment. In its authorization on Saturday, the FDA made clear that the drug is only for the treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 in people 12 years and older who are at high risk of developing more severe symptoms. It's not for patients who are hospitalized because of COVID-19 or who require oxygen therapy because of the virus. "The emergency authorization of these monoclonal antibodies administered together offers health care providers another tool in combating the

  • Pennsylvania GOP Sen. Toomey Says Trump Should Accept Election Loss

    kalw.org Sunday, 22 November 2020 22:30:00

    Updated at 11:23 a.m. ET Following yet another legal setback for the Trump campaign, Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania called on President Trump to accept the outcome of the Nov. 3 election and move forward with the transition process in order to protect his presidential legacy. "President Trump has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the result of the presidential race in Pennsylvania," Toomey said in a lengthy statement . His Saturday night statement came soon after a federal judge dismissed a Trump campaign lawsuit challenging the results in Pennsylvania by alleging that election officials in Democratic-leaning counties allowed voters to fix errors on their mail-in ballots. The Trump campaign has vowed to the appeal the ruling. President-elect Joe Biden won the state by more than 80,000 votes. The state's deadline to certify those results is Monday. Toomey — who is retiring rather than running for reelection in two years — added his congratulations to Biden

  • Trump Requests Georgia Recount, Meaning 5 Million Votes Will Be Tabulated A 3rd Time

    kalw.org Sunday, 22 November 2020 22:13:00

    Georgia's nearly 5 million votes in the presidential race will be counted for a third time, as President Trump's campaign has formally asked for a recount because his loss is within the legal margin for that request. Of the 4,998,482 ballots cast in the race between Trump and President-elect Joe Biden, the president lost by 12,670 votes , or about 0.26 percentage points. State law allows a losing candidate within 0.5 percentage points to ask for a recount within two business days of certification . While thousands of workers spent most of the last week hand-counting every vote as part of a newly required statewide risk-limiting audit , this recount will be different. The law calls for a recount to be conducted by retabulating every ballot through a scanner, the same way they were originally counted in the days following the Nov. 3 election. Trump's campaign and his allies have launched a continuous stream of attacks against the election integrity in states that he lost, including

  • What's That Smell? Researchers Hope To Recreate Historic Scents From Europe's Past

    kalw.org Sunday, 22 November 2020 19:47:00

    We know a lot about the Industrial Revolution. What it looked like, its historical significance and details of life during the time. But what about how it smelled? A new team of researchers, historians and computer scientists will explore the answer to that question and others like it. Funded by the European Union, the team behind the $3.3 million project called Odeuropa will spend three years identifying and recreating historical smells. It was announced this week and begins in January. "Smell and scent are really special, because they're essential to our memory," said William Tullett, a historian who studies smell and an Odeuropa researcher. "Smell is one of those things that really does make our lives worth living. It's one of those things that adds enjoyment to our daily lives." Maybe it's the rich aromas of a late 17th century London coffee house. Or the smell of a burning cigar. Either way, Tullet says, scents contain context for different historical periods and geographic

  • How To Plan – And Even Be Grateful – For A Socially Distanced Thanksgiving

    kalw.org Sunday, 22 November 2020 19:28:00

    You should be counting your Thanksgiving blessings if you have someone like Jasmine Surti in your immediate family or circle. She's a mother, a daughter, a friend to many in Lawrenceville, N.J. And she's the sort of super-planner who joyfully takes on the daunting task of organizing a pandemic Thanksgiving. "Well, I guess I like to make spreadsheets and surveys and things," Surti acknowledges with sheepish pride. "Basically, problem solving, you could say." Surti problem-solved her socially-distanced Thanksgiving — involving six households spread out across New Jersey and Philadelphia — by putting together a complicated system of not just who makes what this year, but who drops what on which family's doorstep. All to ensure everyone gets to eat their favorite foods, prepared by friends and family. "People laugh at this, but I created a map of how we're going to get the food where it needs to go," she explains, warming to the topic. Because Surti is such a virtuoso planner, she was also

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST: While workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East this past week. He unveiled controversial new policies favoring Israel's right wing, policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo. NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. DANIEL ESTRIN, BYLINE: Pompeo became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines Pompeo. The U.S. used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land, featured in the Bible. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) MIKE POMPEO: For a long time,

  • FDA Approves First Drug For Rare, Rapid-Aging Genetic Disorder

    kalw.org Sunday, 22 November 2020 19:28:00

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST: The Food and Drug Administration has approved the first drug for a rare genetic disorder that causes children to grow old before they grow up. NPR's Jon Hamilton reports that the drug is largely the result of one family's effort to help a child with the fatal condition. JON HAMILTON, BYLINE: The disorder is called progeria. Children born with it appear old and frail before they reach school age. Most die of heart disease in their early teens. But Dr. Leslie Gordon of the Progeria Research Foundation says a drug called Zokinvy can help. LESLIE GORDON: Zokinvy is a treatment. It's not a cure. But what we can say is that, so far, we know that it increases the average lifespan by about two and a half years. HAMILTON: Gordon and her family played a crucial role in making Zokinvy possible. Their goal was to find a treatment for Gordon's son, Sam Berns. He was diagnosed with progeria in 1998. In 2013, he gave a TEDx Talk on how

  • Climate Change Closes In On Lebanon's Iconic Cedar Trees

    kalw.org Sunday, 22 November 2020 18:01:00

    Khaled Taleb steps out of his vehicle high on a mountainside in northern Lebanon, and surveys the charred remains of the cedar forest he fought to save. A black carpet of the trees' burned needles crunches underfoot. Armed with only gardening tools and cloth masks, Taleb and four friends spent the night of Aug. 23 on this mountainside battling a wildfire that swept up from the valley and engulfed this high-altitude woodland of cedars and juniper trees. "The fear we felt for ourselves was nothing compared to the fear we had for the trees," recalls Taleb, who played under these boughs as a child, and who has worked for their protection since he was 16. Now 29, he runs an ecotourism and conservation group he founded called Akkar Trail. Khaled Taleb, 29, a conservationist who is the director and founder of Akkar Trail, and his brother Ali Taleb, 22, a botanist, look out over a valley from the site of a recent wildfire which burned a number of cedar trees, in the Mishmish forest.
