  • Retail Jobs Are Treated As A Temporary Bridge To Something Better. But Why?

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 15:45:00

    People lick their fingers, touch money and hand it to you. They take money out of bras or hand you bills soaking wet with lake water. When you become a grocery cashier, says Rachel Baker, you quickly learn that retail is really filthy. She thinks back to how she landed at her store in southern Oregon, after college and a couple other jobs. Grocery work was meant to be a way station, a steady paycheck until she found her forever career. It's a very common retail story. Five years, two stores and a little promotion later, there you are, still ringing up shoppers until 9:30 at night. "Nobody is in retail because they really want to be; it's a bridge to another place," Baker says and wonders: What if it didn't have to be this way? "It would be really nice if we could make that environment so that that's not necessarily the case, because some people don't have that choice." Rachel Baker, who left retail during the "great resignation" wave, wonders why the industry cannot try to turn itself

  • Terence Blanchard Makes History At The Metropolitan Opera

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 15:45:00

    History is being made tonight at New York's Metropolitan Opera : For the first time in 138 years, the eminent company will present an opera by a Black composer. After 18 months of pandemic-canceled performances, the nation's premier opera house will open its new season with Fire Shut Up in My Bones, composed by Terence Blanchard . As a trumpeter, Blanchard has played with jazz legends like Lionel Hampton and Art Blakey. He's been nominated for two Academy Awards for his film scores, and has won five Grammys for his jazz records. But at a recent Metropolitan Opera rehearsal for Fire Shut Up in My Bones, Blanchard was humbled by the scale of the production. Terence Blanchard, a celebrated jazz trumpeter and film composer, makes history as the Metropolitan Opera season opens.

  • India's Farmers Renew Protests, Challenging Modi Government

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 15:36:00

    NEW DELHI — Thousands of Indian farmers blocked traffic on major roads and railway tracks outside of the nation's capital on Monday, marking one year of demonstrations against government-backed laws that they say will shatter their livelihoods. The farmers have renewed their protests with calls for a nationwide strike on the anniversary of the legislation's passage. The drawn-out demonstrations have posed one of the biggest political challenges to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who swept the polls for the second time in 2019. Waving colorful flags and distributing free food, hundreds of farmers gathered Monday at one of the protest sites on the edges of the capital, New Delhi. "The enthusiasm we had on the first day, it is much stronger and bigger now," said Manjit Singh, a 45-year-old farmer and protester. Mohini Kaur, a 61-year-old New Delhi resident traveled to the protest site to show her support for the farmers. "These lion-hearted farmers are here today under the hot sun. They

  • The Cost Of Forced Psychiatric Care Like Britney Spears Got Can Be Ruinous

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 15:24:00

    When Britney Spears went before a judge in June, she bristled as she told of being forced into psychiatric care that cost her $60,000 a month . Though the pop star's circumstances in a financial conservatorship are unusual, every year hundreds of thousands of psychiatric patients receive involuntary care, and many are stuck with the bill . Few have Spears' resources to pay for it, which can have devastating consequences. To the frustration of those who study the issue, data on how many people are involuntarily hospitalized and how much they have to pay for that treatment is sparse. From what can be gathered, approximately 2 million patients with substance use or other psychiatric problems are hospitalized each year in the United States, nearly half involuntarily. One study found that a quarter of these hospitalizations are covered by private insurance, which often has high copays , and 10% were "self-pay/no charge," where patients are often billed but cannot pay. While hospitals

  • Congress Faces A Week of Critical Deadlines

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 15:00:00

    Top Congressional Democrats worked through the weekend to untangle a snarl of competing demands from members of their own party on fiscal issues while continuing to battle Republicans over the nation's debt. Democrats are facing several critical deadlines this week: a potential government shutdown at the end of the day Thursday; the looming threat of federal default as the country nears the debt limit ; a scheduled vote on a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill and a related vote on as much as $3.5 trillion in spending promised by Democrats. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has promised that the House will vote on the bipartisan bill this week and insists the government will not shutdown. "Let me just say we're going to pass the bill this week," Pelosi said in an appearance on ABC's This Week . "We will bring the bill to the floor tomorrow for consideration. But you know I'm never bringing a bill to the floor that doesn't have the votes." Pelosi told Democrats Sunday evening

  • Germany's Social Democrats Narrowly Beat Outgoing Merkel's Bloc In Sunday's Vote

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 13:43:00

    BERLIN — Germany's center-left Social Democrats won the biggest share of the vote in a national election Sunday, narrowly beating outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel 's center-right Union bloc in a closely fought race that will determine who succeeds the long-time leader at the helm of Europe's biggest economy. The Social Democrats' candidate Olaf Scholz, the outgoing vice chancellor and finance minister who pulled his party out of a years-long slump, said the outcome was "a very clear mandate to ensure now that we put together a good, pragmatic government for Germany." Despite getting its worst-ever result in a federal contest, the Union bloc said it too would reach out to smaller parties to discuss forming a government, while Merkel stays on in a caretaker role until a successor is sworn in. Election officials said early Monday that a count of all 299 constituencies showed the Social Democrats received 25.9% of the vote, ahead of 24.1% for the Union bloc. No winning party in a German

  • Federal Investigators Probe Deadly Amtrak Derailment In Montana

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 09:30:00

    JOPLIN, Mont. — A team of investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board was at the site of an Amtrak derailment in north-central Montana that killed three people and left seven hospitalized Sunday, officials said. The westbound Empire Builder was en route from Chicago to Seattle when it left the tracks about 4 p.m. Saturday near Joplin, a town of about 200. Trevor Fossen was first on the scene. The Joplin resident was on a dirt road nearing the tracks Saturday when he saw "a wall of dust" about 300 feet high. "I started looking at that, wondering what it was and then I saw the train had tipped over and derailed," said Fossen, who called 911 and started trying to get people out. He called his brother to bring ladders for people who couldn't get down after exiting through the windows of cars resting on their sides. The train was carrying about 141 passengers and 16 crew members and had two locomotives and 10 cars, eight of which derailed, Amtrak spokesman Jason Abrams said.

And he shared this audio postcard with us. BRIAN MANN, BYLINE: This is the kind of trip you take for deep solitude. The river is hard to reach.

Soon, I'm tangled in a maze of winding marsh, scrambling over big beaver dams that block the way. (SOUNDBITE OF PADDLING

  • New York May Use The National Guard To Replace Unvaccinated Health Care Workers

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 03:48:00

    New York state officials are bracing for staffing shortages when the state's health care worker vaccination mandate takes effect on Monday, and could be looking to the National Guard — as well as medical professionals from other states and countries — to help address them. Gov. Kathy Hochul released a plan on Saturday, outlining the steps she could take to increase the workforce in the event that large numbers of hospital and nursing home employees do not meet the state's deadline. "We are still in a battle against COVID to protect our loved ones, and we need to fight with every tool at our disposal," she said. That could mean declaring a state of emergency to allow health care professionals licensed outside of New York, as well as recent graduates and retirees, to practice there. Other options include deploying medically trained National Guard members, partnering with the federal government to send Disaster Medical Assistance Teams to local health and medical systems and "exploring

  • Anthony Hamilton On Being Vulnerable And His New Album 'Love Is The New Black'

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 03:26:00

    Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Anthony Hamilton is back with a new album. Love Is The New Black is his first full length album in five years — one fans have been anxiously awaiting. Hamilton is the self-described "country boy" from North Carolina whose vulnerable lyrics and gospel-tinged delivery have gained him fans across the globe. Many were introduced to Hamilton through his popular Tiny Desk performance in 2016 . Some were fans way before that — as Hamilton says, "when only 10 people knew about me." NPR's Michel Martin welcomed Hamilton back to NPR to talk about his latest album, and about his creative process during the pandemic. Here are excerpts, including web-only extended answers: Does it feel like you're a veteran by now or does it feel like people are still discovering you? It sometimes feels like you are everyone's "little secret." I feel like a veteran, like an O.G. as the young entertainers call me — but I also feel like there are a lot of people who are still getting

  • Early Results Show The German Election Is Too Close To Call

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 02:14:00

    BERLIN – Germany's two largest parties have emerged from Sunday's election in what amounts to a dead heat, according to preliminary results. The first projected results released by national broadcaster ARD put the country's center-left Social Democrats at 24.9%, just two-tenths of a percentage point ahead of Merkel's center-right party. Another exit poll released by broadcaster ZDF showed a slightly wider gap between the top two parties, with the Social Democrats, the SPD, at 25.7% and the center-right party, the Christian Democratic Union/Christian Social Union, at 24.6%. While the results are only preliminary, they underscore how difficult it will be for Germany's top parties to form a coalition government. And whenever one is formed, it's likely to be a three-party coalition, the first in recent memory. However, hours after the polls closed, it was unclear what form that coalition would take or whether it would be led by Social Democrat chancellor candidate Olaf Scholz, or by Armin

  • Rare Pokemon Oreos Are Selling For Thousands Of Dollars On eBay

    wuga.org Monday, 27 September 2021 00:53:00

    New Pokemon Oreos are giving fans something to get excited about — and providing collectors with a new avenue to potentially rake in thousands of dollars. Launched earlier this month, the new Oreo x Pokemon collaboration features the brand's traditional sandwich cookies, this time emblazoned with one of 16 Pokemon (or pocket monsters, for the uninitiated). Each pack includes a random selection of cookies that feature classic characters like Pikachu and Charmander, but also one extremely rare Pokemon: the mythical Mew. And as has long been the case with rare Pokemon cards, the rarest Pokemon cookie of all has become a hot commodity. An eBay search yields dozens of Mew Oreo cookies for sale, with prices listed everywhere from $50 to $10,000 to $100,000. Some listings promise a "mint condition" cookie; one claims the cookie was only handled with tongs, while others include photos showing the snack tucked safely in a plastic baggie. Judging from the items listed as "sold," a number of the

  • Exit Polls Show An Extremely Close Race In German Election To Succeed Angela Merkel

    wuga.org Sunday, 26 September 2021 20:22:00

    Updated September 26, 2021 at 12:35 PM ET Early exit polls from Germany show an extremely close race between the center-left Social Democratic Party and the center-right Christian Democratic Union, in an election that will decide the next chancellor of the country after 16 years of Angela Merkel in office. Merkel's Christian Democratic Union and its partner, the Christian Social Union, have 25% of the vote, placing them in a tie with the Social Democratic Party. Following behind is the Greens with 15%. Further updates in the numbers are expected as the tallying continues Sunday in Germany. Polls opened at 8 a.m. local time and closed at 6 p.m. There may be more delays than usual in counting ballots this year due to the pandemic and the number of voters who participated in mail-in voting, analysts say. The latest polling leading up to election day showed the Social Democratic Party narrowly ahead of Christian Democratic Union/Christian Social Union partnership. The Greens and the far

  • Swiss Voters Approve Same-Sex Marriage In A Nationwide Referendum

    wuga.org Sunday, 26 September 2021 18:51:00

    Updated September 26, 2021 at 11:14 AM ET GENEVA (AP) — Switzerland voted by a wide margin to allow same-sex couples to marry in a referendum on Sunday, bringing the Alpine nation into line with many others in western Europe. Official results showed the measure passed with 64.1% of voters in favor and won a majority in all of Switzerland's 26 cantons, or states. Switzerland's parliament and the governing Federal Council supported the "Marriage for All" measure. Switzerland has authorized same-sex civil partnerships since 2007. Supporters said passage would put same-sex partners on equal legal footing with heterosexual couples by allowing them to adopt children together and facilitating citizenship for same-sex spouses. It would also permit lesbian couples to utilize regulated sperm donation. Opponents believe that replacing civil partnerships with full marriage rights would undermine families based on a union between one man and one woman. At a polling station in Geneva on Sunday,

  • Israeli Troops Kill 5 Palestinian Gunmen In A Sweeping Crackdown Against Hamas

    wuga.org Sunday, 26 September 2021 18:32:00

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Five Palestinian gunmen were killed in shootouts with Israeli security forces during a sweeping West Bank arrest operation cracking down on the Islamic militant group Hamas on Sunday. It was the deadliest violence between Israeli troops and Palestinian militants in the occupied West Bank in recent weeks and came amid heightened tensions following this year's 11-day war between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Health Ministry said two Palestinians were shot dead near the northern West Bank city of Jenin and three others were killed in Biddu, north of Jerusalem. The Israeli military said an officer and soldier suffered serious injuries during the arrest in Burqin, near Jenin, and were airlifted to a hospital for medical treatment. Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said in a statement that Israeli security forces in the West Bank moved against Hamas operatives "that were about to execute terror attacks in the very immediate future." He said the

  • Afghans Are Among Thousands Of Migrants Hoping To Reach Europe Via Serbia

    wuga.org Sunday, 26 September 2021 18:02:00

    BELGRADE, Serbia — Mohammad Bilal sways on a swing in the Bogovadja asylum center in central Serbia, a government-run facility that has been the Afghan teenager's temporary home. He lives here with 55 other unaccompanied children. All are migrants between the ages of 10 and 18. Bilal, 17, arrived in Serbia in March, after more than a year making his way from Afghanistan through Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece and Macedonia. His family poured all their savings into sending him out of Afghanistan in search of a better life. In Iran, he says, human smugglers squeezed him into the trunk of a car with four other boys. "I was sure that was my last day on earth," he told NPR in the spring. "It was boiling inside. I prayed to God to help me. Then Iranian border police beat me very hard before telling me to go to Turkey." Bilal is one of the over 1.5 million refugees and migrants who have crossed into the country since the start of the humanitarian crisis in 2015, fueled by Syria's war. In that
