Virginia's Tiebreaker Draw Is Postponed; Pivotal Race Still In Doubt

The Virginia State Board of Elections has postponed a drawing that would have broken a tie in the state's recent election, after Democrats asked a court to review the awarding of a single vote that left the tally even rather than wresting the House of Delegates from Republicans' sole control. "Drawing names is an action of last resort," elections board Chairman James Alcorn said. And with new court procedures underway, he said, other options are still available. The new twist comes one week...

Austrian Muslims Say Religious Intolerance Is Growing

Across the street from Vienna's iconic Ferris wheel, the Schura Mosque is packed each Friday with Muslims who come to pray. It's one of some 300 mosques and prayer rooms serving 700,000 Muslims who live in Austria and who've enjoyed the same rights as Christians and Jews since Islam was made an official religion there in 1912. A few mosques, like Vienna's Islamic Center, even have a minaret. But they are silent these days, a metaphor of sorts for the low profile many Muslims are keeping...

NPR Bracket, Round 1 Results: Top Seeds Advance, 'The Mooch' With An Upset

It was a pretty predictable first round of voting in the NPR Top Political Story of the Year Bracket. The top seeds all advanced easily. The only upset was 10-seeded Anthony Scaramucci's 10 days in the White House breezing past the far-more important New York Truck Attack, which was a 7-seed. But "The Mooch's" staying power in the bracket might turn out similarly to his stay in the White House — make a splash, but short-lived. That's because he's up against the 2-seed Charlottesville violence...

On Christmas Day, The Salt Lake Tribune denounced Sen. Orrin Hatch's "utter lack of integrity" and called for him to end his 42-year career in the Senate. Hatch, in response, told the paper he was "grateful for this great Christmas honor." The unusual exchange was prompted by the paper's annual tradition of naming a Utahn of the Year. Last year, it was a student at Brigham Young University who pushed for reforms . The year before, it was a state politician the paper praised for "seemingly...

2017 Has Been A Great Year For Women In TV

In a year filled with paradoxes, this might be one of the saddest: 2017 has been a great year for women in TV. But current circumstances sometimes make it difficult to celebrate. That's because we're in the early stages of a reckoning over sexual harassment in Hollywood that is reshaping the industry in ways that are painful, necessary and tough to predict. Still, I was calling 2017 an important year for women in the industry last February , long before the #MeToo movement would wake up the...

What Does 'Containing A Fire' Really Mean?

If you live in a place that's prone to massive wildfires , there's one phrase you always listen for: "the fire is (x) percent contained." A 95 percent contained fire sounds a lot less scary than a 25 percent contained fire, and if you're debating whether or not to evacuate your house , that number might make all the difference. But containment doesn't necessarily mean a fire isn't still raging. Rather than describing how much of the fire has been put out or beaten back, containment actually...
