  • AC/DC Cofounder And Guitarist Malcolm Young Dies, Age 64AC/DC Cofounder And Guitarist Malcolm Young Dies, Age 64

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAgnJDJN4VA One of the founding members of AC/DC, among the best-selling bands in recorded music history, died Saturday. Guitarist and songwriter Malcolm Young was 64 years old. Young's family, which announced his death in a statement, noted that he had suffered from dementia for several years. The place of his death was not shared, though the statement mentioned that he "passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside." In April of 2014, AC/DC announced that Young would be "taking a break from the band to ill health," without disclosing the nature of his illness; in September of that same year, the band revealed that he had dementia. Young's nephew, Stevie Young, toured and recorded with the group in his place. AC/DC was founded in Sydney, Australia, by two brothers, Malcolm (the seventh of eight children in the Young family) and his younger brother Angus. The brothers, who were born in Glasgow, Scotland (Malcolm on Jan. 6, 1953), had emigrated to

  • To Save Their Water Supply, Colorado Farmers Taxed ThemselvesTo Save Their Water Supply, Colorado Farmers Taxed Themselves

    The Western U.S. is just starting to recover after a prolonged, 16-year drought. A lack of water can force people to take a hard look at how they use it, and make big changes. That's what happened in southern Colorado, where farmers have tried a bold experiment: They're taxing themselves to boost conservation. Colorado's San Luis Valley is a desperately dry stretch of land, about the same size as New Jersey. Doug Messick manages potato farms for the valley's Spud Grower Farms. This fall, his fields were full of Russets — the kind you'd use for a loaded baked potato. Hanging from a metal arm above the plants, dozens of nozzles spray down perfect little water droplets. The irrigation water keeps the fields green. Without it, this valley is just a desert. Messick pumps water from a shallow aquifer under our feet. Today there's enough to keep it running. When that epic drought started 16 years ago, "the aquifer was declining," Messick says. "But nobody really started noticing until they

  • Azzedine Alaia, French Fashion Designer Known As The 'King Of Cling,' DiesAzzedine Alaia, French Fashion Designer Known As The 'King Of Cling,' Dies

    Azzedine Alaia, the French-Tunisian designer known for his figure-sculpting fashions, has died at 77, the French Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion confirmed on Saturday. In his more than four decades in the fashion industry, Alaia gained a reputation for going rogue; he refused to follow the calendar of international fashion weeks and released his collections only when he was ready. He rose to fame for his body-hugging designs that celebrated the female form. "I like women," Alaia said in a 2013 interview. "I never think about doing new things, about being creative, but about making clothing that will make women beautiful." Alaia earned the nickname "the king of cling" for his form fitting dresses that were worn by some of the biggest stars of the 1980s and '90s, such as Madonna and the model, Naomi Campbell, who was one of his protégées and referred to him as "Papa." As he updated those designs, his cohort of celebrity fans grew to include Lady Gaga and former First Lady

  • Palestinians Threaten To Suspend Talks If U.S. Closes PLO MissionPalestinians Threaten To Suspend Talks If U.S. Closes PLO Mission

    The Palestinians threatened on Saturday to cease communication with the United States if the White House closes its diplomatic mission in Washington, D.C., lodging a potential thorn in President Trump's plans for Mideast peace. The State Department says the office of the Palestine Liberation Organization must close under a little-known provision in U.S. law that forbids it from requesting Israelis be prosecuted for crimes against Palestinians. Trump may reverse the closure within 90 days if the Palestinians prove they are engaging in peace negotiations with the Israelis. The Associated Press reports it is not "clear that the office would close or whether the Palestinians would have to clear out of the building entirely or just close it to the public." In an interview on Palestine Radio on Saturday, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said, "The Palestinian leadership will not accept any extortion or pressure" from the United States. Palestinian official Saeb Erekat says this move

  • Thousands March Through Zimbabwe's Capital To Urge Mugabe To Step DownThousands March Through Zimbabwe's Capital To Urge Mugabe To Step Down

    Tens of thousands of euphoric Zimbabweans marched through the country's capital on Saturday to celebrate what may be the near end of President Robert Mugabe's reign. Mugabe, one of Africa's last living independence leaders, had been in power for nearly four decades, until this week when the military ousted him in what it is describing as a "bloodless correction." Journalist Jeffrey Barbee tells Weekend Edition the mood on the streets of Harare was "jubilant, not a rock to be thrown ... peaceful but excited." "People are really excited to see the end of Mugabe," he says. Crowds of exuberant demonstrators marched toward Mugabe's residence in an act of defiance against his abuse of power, which had been going on for decades. Similar protests took place in other parts of the country and abroad. Earlier this week, the military seized control in response to a political power struggle over who would rule Zimbabwe after Mugabe, who has led the former British colony since it gained independence

  • 11 Scenarios For How The Roy Moore Saga Could Play Out11 Scenarios For How The Roy Moore Saga Could Play Out

    Sexual assault allegations against Roy Moore have reverberated from Alabama to Washington, D.C. Many Republican leaders have pulled their support from Moore. They include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, the head of National Republican Senatorial Committee, which is in charge of electing GOP senators. McConnell, trying to save every seat possible in an already too-narrow-for-comfort majority, is gaming out scenarios to try to hold the seat long in GOP hands as Moore faces off against Democrat Doug Jones in a Dec. 12 special election. But, speaking Friday, Kay Ivey, Alabama's Republican governor, said she sees no reason why the election should not proceed as planned next month. And she holds many of the cards in the Moore saga. She set the election date, and in a number of scenarios, she has some discretion to appoint someone else temporarily (Luther Strange had been appointed by her predecessor) or

  • The 'Missed Opportunity' Of Trump's Asia TripThe 'Missed Opportunity' Of Trump's Asia Trip

    When President Trump returned this week from a 12-day, five-nation swing through Asia, he gave himself high marks for the "tremendous success of this trip." But experts say that while he avoided major blunders during his stops in Japan, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines, the president missed more than one opportunity to offer his administration's strategic vision for the region — the world's largest, most populous and fastest growing. "It was all fluff," says David Shambaugh , a professor of political science and international affairs at the Elliott School at George Washington University. "Nothing came out of it except Trump flying in and being treated well himself." Shambaugh points to the lavish dinners, honor guards at nearly every stop and the tea to which the president was treated in Beijing's Forbidden City as "symbols" that the Chinese and "in fact, most Asian leaders, have figured out Trump" — by flattering his ego. The first two legs of the trip — to treaty

  • After A Mass Shooting, Families Feel 'A Pain That Will Never Go Away'After A Mass Shooting, Families Feel 'A Pain That Will Never Go Away'

    Every time there is a mass shooting in the United States, there is a flurry of concentration on those who died, the alleged or confessed perpetrator, and the sobered, devastated town that will be forever changed. Then at some point, the press caravan moves on — from Sutherland Springs, from Orlando, from Las Vegas. And within weeks, or sometimes just days, another mass shooting is being reported. The public attention moves on, but those affected families don't. More families joined the ranks of the grieving this past week, when five people were killed in Rancho Tehama Reserve, Calif. "It is a pain that will never go away," Tom Mauser says. He's been living with it for more than 18 years. His 15-year-old son Daniel was killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. "My son Daniel was a very gentle, soft-spoken kid," Mauser says. "He was a Boy Scout, piano player, loved to play video games, straight-A student." Daniel was shy, but faced his fears head-on, his father says. "He chose

    On a sunny weekday afternoon, chef Bonnie Morales leads me past the Q subway line in the Brighton Beach neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y. We are going shopping for Russian food. Morales owns Kachka , a restaurant in Portland, Ore., that serves food from the former Soviet Union. It's one of the most popular places to eat in one of the hottest food cities in the country. Now, Morales has a new cookbook — also called Kachka . Its publication inspired this jaunt to Little Odessa, the kind of neighborhood where the child of Eastern European immigrants feels at home. "Because there's such a concentration of people from the former Soviet Union," Morales explains. People like Morales' own Russian Jewish immigrant parents. (Her husband is part Mexican; her maiden name is Frumkin.) She was born in the Chicago area, and as a child in the early 1990s, her relatives flocked to the United States after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Every week, it seemed, her parents threw another party welcoming new

  • As Native Americans Face Job Discrimination, A Tribe Works To Employ Its OwnAs Native Americans Face Job Discrimination, A Tribe Works To Employ Its Own

    When he started working as a bartender a few years ago in Seattle, Howie Echo-Hawk says he began experiencing discrimination. First, a bar manager told him to get a respectable haircut. "I had a Mohawk, which is the traditional style of my people and I wore it because of that," he said. Echo-Hawk is a member of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma. Rather than argue, Echo-Hawk cut his hair. Then, a few months later, he broke his ankle and had to take some time off. "When I finally came back to work, one of the managers their told me: 'That's what happens when you Indians get your firewater,' " he said. "And so, I filed a complaint very quickly, and basically put in my two weeks notice." About a third of Native Americans say they have experienced discrimination in the workplace when seeking jobs, or when getting promotions or earning equal pay, according to a new poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Slightly more said they were on

  • Senate May Approve Drilling In Alaskan Wilderness With Tax BillSenate May Approve Drilling In Alaskan Wilderness With Tax Bill

    For all the negative headlines that 2017 have generated, Republicans are on the cusp of accomplishing two major policy goals that have eluded them for decades, at the same time. The Senate could soon approve oil drilling in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge with its bill to overhaul the nation's tax code. ANWR has long held an outsized symbolic role in the tug-of-war between environmental protection and the desire to increase domestic oil and gas drilling. In that regard, you could argue, it was the original Keystone XL Pipeline — an issue activists on both sides could rally, fundraise and organize around. Legislation opening up a portion of ANWR for leasing cleared a key Senate hurdle this week, when the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee approved it on a 13-10 vote. The measure is tied to the budget process that Republican leaders are using to advance the tax overhaul, which means the bill would only need 51 votes – not the usual 60 – to advance in the full Senate.

  • Roundup Of The Week: Taxes, Sexual Harassment And Russia In The Politics PodcastRoundup Of The Week: Taxes, Sexual Harassment And Russia In The Politics Podcast

    It was an unusually busy week on Capitol Hill. The House passed the tax bill , largely along party lines. Now it's on to the Senate, where Republicans are tacking on a rollback of the Obamacare individual mandate. Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before Congress — again — and says his story about Russia contacts during the Trump campaign "has never changed." Another committee held hearings on the issue of sexual harassment on the Hill. That hearing was planned even before the new allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore , the Republican nominee for Senate in Alabama, and now against Sen. Al Franken , D-Minn. Listen to the full roundup on the NPR Politics podcast. Here are the highlights Susan Davis on taxes : "Getting the first version of the bill through the Senate is seen as the most critical hurdle. Because there is broad confidence that if they can do that, they can get a bill out of conference, and they can get that bill to president Trump's desk — yes, still by

  • Toilet Signs Are Mysterious And Mirth-InducingToilet Signs Are Mysterious And Mirth-Inducing

    You are in a foreign country. And things are certainly looking a bit foreign. Do you sit or squat? Can you toss toilet paper down the bowl or hole? Let the signs guide you. That is, if you can understand them. Doug Lansky, author of the Signspotting series of books, knows how toilet etiquette signs can be mysterious, misleading and hilarious. His books include all types of funny warning and advice signs, but the topic of toilets is especially popular. Lansky, who gave up a job offer at The New Yorker to travel the world, has seen his share of terrifying toilets. The worst? "A second-class Indian train toilet. The train is shaking, there is no light and it's pretty clear everyone else has missed the target too. Plus, it's your standard messy hole in the floor, but underneath it's just train tracks whipping by. You have to be a really confident squatter." Ew.
