  • Powerful Storm Sweeps Through Tri-County Area

    peoriapublicradio.org Tuesday, 11 August 2020 04:18:00

    A fast and powerful storm with wind gusts above 60 mph swept through the Tri-County area Monday afternoon, downing trees and knocking out power. “The line of storms actually originated back in Nebraska and South Dakota early this morning. It tracked all the way across Iowa and gone across most of Central Illinois, and now it’s moving into south central parts of Illinois,” said Chris Geelhart of the National Weather Service in Lincoln. “All along that track there was widespread wind damage that occurred.” Spotter reports on the NWS website showed a gust of 59 mph at Peoria International Airport at 2:43 p.m. Additional entries indicated downed trees and power poles all across the region, with some blocking streets and striking houses. “It’s basically been the wind that’s been the problem,” said Geelhart. “There were some situations where trees may have been uprooted just because of the ground having been saturated from recent heavy rains. But we haven’t had any real reports of flooding

  • California And Texas Health Officials: Mistrust A Major Hurdle For Contact Tracers

    peoriapublicradio.org Tuesday, 11 August 2020 04:10:00

    Contact tracing has been one of the key tools in the fight against the coronavirus. Now, as the virus has infected more than 5 million Americans, the U.S. has at least 41,122 contact tracers — but that's not even half what public health experts said would be needed to help contain the spread. Contact tracers call each person who has tested positive and track down their contacts to inform them of their risk so they can quarantine. They also often connect people with services so they can safely isolate. In addition to staffing shortages and testing bottlenecks, those who are on the job are running into other big challenges, including the difficulty of getting people to cooperate, health officials say. Elya Franciscus, an epidemiologist with Harris County Public Health in Houston, estimates that about half of those contacted by her department's contact tracers are not fully cooperative. In the Los Angeles area, a few businesses have proven problematic — with outsize effects, says Michael

  • California Judge Orders Uber And Lyft To Consider All Drivers Employees

    peoriapublicradio.org Tuesday, 11 August 2020 04:04:00

    Updated at 6:48 p.m. ET A California judge has ordered Uber and Lyft to reclassify their workers from independent contractors to employees with benefits, a ruling that could be consequential for gig economy workers if it survives the appeals process. Superior Court Judge Ethan Schulman ruled Monday that Lyft and Uber's thousands of contract drivers should be given the same protections and benefits under labor law as other full-time employees of the ride-hailing companies. Schulman said Lyft and Uber use "circular reasoning" by only treating tech workers, not drivers, as employees. "Were this reasoning to be accepted, the rapidly expanding majority of industries that rely heavily on technology could with impunity deprive legions of workers of the basic protections afforded to employees by state labor and employment laws," Schulman wrote. The judge said Uber and Lyft have refused to comply with a California law passed last year that was supposed to make it harder for companies in the

  • Motorcyclist Killed In Crash After Attempted Traffic Stop

    peoriapublicradio.org Tuesday, 11 August 2020 03:13:34

    An East Peoria man has died after reportedly fleeing an attempted traffic stop late Saturday night. According to Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood, 25-year-old Craig Spurlock Junior died at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center just before midnight Saturday. The coroner's report indicates East Peoria police attempted to stop Spurlock for speeding on the Cedar Street bridge around 11:15 p.m. Spurlock apparently fled into Peoria and the attempted traffic stop was terminated. Spurlock's vehicle then collided with another near the intersection of South McArthur Highway and West Millman Street. The other vehicle reportedly left the scene. The Illinois State Police is investigating the incident; toxicology reports are pending. We’re living in unprecedented times when information changes by the minute.

  • Belarus Elections End With Landslide Winner — And Massive Protests

    peoriapublicradio.org Tuesday, 11 August 2020 03:00:00

    There's a winner in Sunday's presidential election in Belarus. But there's no concession from the main opposition candidate. Svetlana Tikhanovskaya is refusing to accept the landslide victory declared by the five-term incumbent, Alexander Lukashenko. The release of an official exit poll that predicted a Lukashenko win prompted a long night of violent demonstrations. Fifty protesters and 39 law enforcement officers were injured in the Sunday night violence, and more than 3,000 were arrested, according to the Belarusian Interior Ministry . Authorities say one protester died in the clashes. On Monday, Tikhanovskaya appeared before journalists in the capital, Minsk, pledging not to leave the country but also declining to assume the role of protest leader when asked about her plans. "The authorities aren't listening to us; they are completely detached from the people," she said. "We are for peaceful change, and the authorities should think about how to transfer power peacefully." According

  • Aquarium Is Washing Old Wishes To Pay Bills During Pandemic

    peoriapublicradio.org Tuesday, 11 August 2020 02:50:00

    For many businesses, the coronavirus pandemic has created a coin shortage. All the sheltering at home put a crimp in the normal circulation of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters, and now some retailers are asking customers to pay with exact change . But a lack of coins is no problem at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. The aquarium — which is soon to enter its sixth month of mandated closure, thanks to the coronavirus — has come up with a pandemic project that can pass the time and help pay the bills. They've drained a large waterfall at the facility and dredged up all the coins thrown in by wishful visitors. "About 100 gallons of coins were cleaned and sorted and will go toward the general care of the aquarium and animals during this time," the aquarium said in a Facebook post last week. It asked commenters to guess how much money 100 gallons of coins adds up to, and will reveal the answer this week. While it's closed to visitors, the aquarium has been offering

  • Puerto Rico's Primary Election On Sunday Was Historic — In A Bad Way

    peoriapublicradio.org Tuesday, 11 August 2020 02:17:00

    Undaunted by the coronavirus pandemic, voters in Puerto Rico donned face masks on Sunday and headed out to local polling places to cast votes in a closely watched gubernatorial primary election. There was just one problem: For many voters, there weren't any ballots. By early afternoon on the day of the primary, only a handful of polling places had received their paper ballots, NPR's Joel Rose reported Sunday. Voters and politicians alike were infuriated, Rose said. One candidate called the situation "embarrassing." The primary election had already been delayed once, moved from June 7 to Aug. 9, because of the pandemic. Now the ballot shortage means that some precincts — the locations that did not have ballots available to start voting by 1:45 p.m. Sunday — will be open to cast ballots again next Sunday. The unprecedented situation creates a legal gray area, Edgardo Román, president of the Bar Association of Puerto Rico, told The Associated Press. What happens to people who showed up at

  • Peoria County COVID-19 Cases Approach 1,600

    peoriapublicradio.org Tuesday, 11 August 2020 01:05:33

    Tri-County health officials reported 170 new COVID-19 infections over the weekend, bringing the region’s total to 2,288 since the start of the pandemic. The figures announced Monday included 94 new cases in Peoria County for a total of 1,598. Tazewell County added 59 new positives for a sum of 535, while Woodford County’s total increased by 17 to 155. No new deaths were reported. Last week, Tazewell County was designated with a “coronavirus warning level” by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) after exceeding the state benchmarks for cases per 100,000 people. On Wednesday, all three counties posted record single-day increases . Fourteen of the 39 patients still hospitalized in the Tri-County area remain in intensive care, while 62.4% of those infected have recovered. Illinois confirmed 1,319 new cases Monday, but only one death. More than 195,000 people in the state have contracted the virus and more than 7,600 have died.

  • In New Zealand, Life Is Ordinary Again After 101 Days With No Community Spread

    peoriapublicradio.org Monday, 10 August 2020 23:12:00

    New Zealand has now gone 101 days without any community transmission of the coronavirus, and life in the country has largely returned to normal – an experience far different from the havoc that the virus is causing elsewhere in the world. "Achieving 100 days without community transmission is a significant milestone, however, as we all know, we can't afford to be complacent," Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, New Zealand's director-general of health, said in a statement Sunday. "We have seen overseas how quickly the virus can re-emerge and spread in places where it was previously under control, and we need to be prepared to quickly stamp out any future cases in New Zealand," he continued. "Every person in the team of 5 million has a role to play in this." On Monday, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, called New Zealand "a global exemplar." How has New Zealand been so successful? Experts point to its quick work in isolating any cases that emerged. "We got

  • Lebanon's Prime Minister Resigns, Citing An 'Earthquake' Of Upheaval After Explosion

    peoriapublicradio.org Monday, 10 August 2020 23:09:00

    Updated at 3:25 p.m. ET Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab announced his cabinet's resignation Monday, responding to outrage over a catastrophic explosion in Beirut. "Today I announce the resignation of this government," Diab said in a national TV address. "May God protect Lebanon." Diab's speech was published by the National News Agency in Lebanon, the state-run media outlet. His resignation came after last Tuesday's deadly warehouse explosion — caused by 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored at Beirut's port — that killed at least 160 people, wounded thousands and left many homeless, destroying a portion of the city. Public anger mounted after the blast, focusing on the carelessness that led to one of the worst explosions in Lebanon's history. The huge trove of dangerous material, which officials say was known about for years, had been allowed to languish in the port since 2013. Intense protests erupted, with many calling for top officials to "resign or hang." "We are facing an

  • 'Silence And Lies': McDonald's Sues Fired CEO, Says He Hid Sexual Relationships

    peoriapublicradio.org Monday, 10 August 2020 21:55:00

    When former McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook was fired for a consensual relationship with a subordinate last year, he left with an exit payout estimated over $40 million. Now, McDonald's is suing him for that money, citing new evidence of additional relationships and accusing him of lies and fraud. Easterbrook was fired in November "without cause" after apologizing for a consensual relationship with a subordinate, which amounted to sexting. But now, in the legal documents disclosed Monday, McDonald's officials lay out new damning accusations against Easterbrook and argue he should have been fired "with cause" and disqualified from exit compensation. The company says it has learned that Easterbrook had sexual relationships with at least three McDonald's employees in the year before he was fired — and even "approved an extraordinary stock grant, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars" for one of them. The legal documents accuse Easterbrook of erasing evidence of these relationships from

  • PHOTOS: Indonesia's Volcano Mount Sinabung Erupts, Spewing Ash Miles High

    peoriapublicradio.org Monday, 10 August 2020 21:32:00

    Indonesia's Mount Sinabung has erupted in a dramatic plume of ash rising several miles into the sky and posing health risks to nearby residents, according to Indonesian authorities. The volcano, located on Sumatra Island, erupted on Saturday and again on Monday, "emitting a thunderous noise and turning the sky dark," Reuters reports . An official on the island told The Associated Press that ash and grit had piled up 2 inches thick in some abandoned villages close to the volcano. Reuters / YouTube Mount Sinabung lay dormant for 400 years before reawakening a decade ago. Since then, it has erupted multiple times, sometimes with deadly results. Many villagers have been permanently displaced. Farmers work in a field covered with ash following an eruption on Monday by Mount Sinabung at Sukatepu village in Karo, North Sumatra, a province on the Island of Sumatra.

  • Chicago's Magnificent Mile Erupts In Overnight Looting, Violence

    peoriapublicradio.org Monday, 10 August 2020 20:51:00

    Hundreds of people looted high-end shops on Chicago's Magnificent Mile overnight and early Monday morning with police officers exchanging gunfire with at least one individual, according to Chicago officials. Law enforcement officials say the violence was linked to social media calls for looting after police shot and injured a male suspect in Englewood, on the city's South Side, on Sunday afternoon. "To be clear, this had nothing to do with legitimate protected First Amendment expression," Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Monday. "What occurred downtown and in surrounding communities was abject criminal behavior, pure and simple ... This was straight-up felony criminal conduct." To staunch the unrest, bridges over the Chicago River were lifted to reduce traffic in and out of downtown, and bus and train service were temporarily restricted to the area. "This was an act of violence against our police officers and against our city," Police Superintendent David Brown said Monday morning, vowing a

  • Why A Vote For Trump's Lands Appointee May Put Some Western Republicans In A Bind

    peoriapublicradio.org Monday, 10 August 2020 19:17:00

    Republicans up for reelection in key Western states could be facing an uncomfortable vote soon as President Trump's controversial nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management is expected to come before the Senate for confirmation. Last week, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee received final documents and paperwork from the administration that were needed to hold a hearing for William Perry Pendley, who has been serving as the Bureau of Land Management's temporary director since last August. A date has not been set. But with the election less than three months out, Democrats are eager to get vulnerable GOP senators on the committee on the record about a nominee who as recently as 2016 suggested that federal public land should be sold to states or private entities. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., said Republicans may be trying to delay a vote until after the election. "Just because members of Congress don't want to be put on the hot seat about his philosophy that is out of

  • U.S. Hits More Than 5 Million Confirmed Cases Of Coronavirus

    peoriapublicradio.org Monday, 10 August 2020 18:16:00

    Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: Let's take stock of the pandemic as the United States of America sets another record. This is the first country in the world to surpass 5 million cases of coronavirus. The number of deaths is also rising, although different parts of America are having different experiences. So NPR's Allison Aubrey is here to talk us through the moment. Hi there, Allison. ALLISON AUBREY, BYLINE: Good morning, Steve. INSKEEP: Five million cases of coronavirus - that is a cumulative number. One-hundred sixty thousand deaths - also a cumulative number over several months - in what direction are we heading right now? AUBREY: You know, nationwide, new cases appear to be plateauing or even declining in some places. But keep in mind, Steve, cases have nearly doubled since the end of June. It's kind of staggering to think about that. And to put this 5 million milestone into perspective, Brazil has about 3 million cases, India about 2 million cases. So
