  3. Puerto Rico's 'Singing Newspapers' Tell A Story Of Resilience

    Knba.org - Alaska (AK) 10.06 / 15:46 knba.org
    Since Hurricane Maria, people in Puerto Rico have been without easy access to electricity, clean drinking water, or food. Many are still staying in shelters; some are living in the ruins of their homes. The once-lush green trees were stripped bare and uprooted. But all is not lost. There are two quintessential Puerto Rican sounds that survived: One is the plaintive song of the tiny coqui frog. The other is the improvised Afro-Puerto Rican call-and-response musical tradition known as Plena.…

  5. U.S. Jobs Dropped By 33,000 In September, Likely Due To Storms

    Knba.org - Alaska (AK) 10.06 / 15:46 knba.org
    The U.S. economy shed 33,000 jobs in September, according to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, while unemployment fell to 4.2 percent. The September payrolls drop broke a nearly seven-year streak of continuous job gains, but economists caution that the drop is likely representing the short-term consequences of bad weather, not a long-term shift in the job market. Before this report, the economy had added an average of about 175,000 jobs per month; the unemployment rate…

  7. How 'Ashes To Ashes' Put The First Act Of David Bowie's Career To Rest

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMThz7eQ6K0 In 1980, David Bowie was in the middle of a new kind of transformation. After launching himself to stardom in 1969 with his first hit single, " Space Oddity ," he spent a decade morphing from Major Tom to Ziggy Stardust to Aladdin Sane to Halloween Jack to The Thin White Duke — a series of characters that also emblemized radically different approaches to rock music, from sci-fi glam to stark experimentalism. By the end of the '70s, however, he d…

    Lo Moon seemed to come out of nowhere last year, and the trio of Matt Lowell, Crisanta Baker, Samuel Stewart have been steadily peeling back the layers ever since. What's been revealed to date is a neo-classic sound with cascading keyboard textures, rhythmic crescendos, shimmering guitars and cinematic lift. Our first taste of the band was "Loveless," a song with big sound that's as intimate as it is anthemic. Their latest single, "This Is It," maintains the seductive ambient charm and…

  5. You're Going To Hate 'TheMystery.doc,' And That's OK

    Wvasfm.org - Arizona (AZ) 10.07 / 14:55 wvasfm.org
    In the press materials for Matthew McIntosh's new 1,660-page brick of a very literary novel, TheMystery.doc , the publisher says not to be fooled by the book's length. Sure, it weighs 4 1/2 pounds, but they cheerfully insist that "it reads as quickly as a novel of a more conventional length." That is a lie. It doesn't read anything like a traditional novel — not as quickly, not as smoothly, not as satisfyingly, none of it. McIntosh's second book reads shattered. It reads fragmentary. It r…

  7. 80 Years On, Dominicans And Haitians Revisit Painful Memories Of 'Parsley Massacre'

    Wvasfm.org - Arizona (AZ) 10.07 / 14:30 wvasfm.org
    Even before Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo carved it in blood, the 224-mile border dividing the island of Hispaniola between Haiti and the Dominican Republic was complicated. Tensions between the two countries stemmed back to a 19th century war. But in many ways, the border, which existed mostly on paper, was a notably seamless site: Children crossed back and forth freely to go to school on one side and home on the other. Sprawling cattle ranches spanned the divide, and Dominicans and…

    There's one small field on Michael Sullivan's farm, near the town of Burdette, Ark., that he wishes he could hide from public view. The field is a disaster.

    Fleet Week, which is more like Fleet Week-and-a-Half, kept doing its spectacular and very loud thing in the skies above San Francisco Bay Saturday. Tens of thousands of people showed up.
