7 Rescued In Pacific Ocean Days After Ferry Sinking

At least seven survivors from a ferry that sank more than a week ago near the Pacific island-nation of Kirabati have been rescued from a small dinghy.

The Future Of Benefits: A New York Program Might Provide A Model

A new NPR/Marist poll finds that 1 in 5 jobs in America is held by a worker under contract. Within a decade, contractors and freelancers could make up half of the American workforce. In a weeklong series , NPR explores many aspects of this change. The way people work is changing, but government policies are slow to adapt. Yet in one case, a program in New York was ahead of its time. Employment benefits such as paid leave, unemployment insurance and workers' compensation are often available...

Military Victory But Political Defeat: The Tet Offensive 50 Years Later

Looking back a half-century, to when they were young officers, their memories of the Battle of Hue are still fresh. "What I saw was probably the most intense ground fighting on a sustained basis over several days of any other period during the war," says Howard Prince, an Army captain who worked with South Vietnamese forces. "We were under fire, under heavy fire," says Jim Coolican, a Marine captain. Mike Downs, another Marine captain, recalls, "We didn't know where the enemy was, in which...

Got Your Flu Shot Yet? Consider This A Reminder

Marian Smith somehow missed getting a flu shot this year, which is unlike her — in the past, she always got one. The 58-year-old Washington D.C. resident says it was easier to remember to get it when the vaccine was provided at a clinic at work. But now the clinic is a bus ride away, and getting the shot wasn't at the top of her mind. "Of course, I could get it right here at the grocery store," Smith tells NPR, as she rushes to pick up her lunch. "But I just didn't get it — I don't know, I...

What Kind of Screen Time Parent Are You? Take This Quiz And Find Out

Almost as soon as they can focus past the end of their noses, babies today are waving at Grandpa on video chat and swiping the screens on all kinds of devices. It's just plain unsettling to watch a baby in a stroller with an iPad. Especially when his mother is looking at her phone at the same time. There's a lot of panic and anxiety and guilt and shame out there about kids and screens. I feel it — all of it — as a mother. And as a reporter I've been interested in the intersection of children...

The Cheese Does Not Stand Alone: How Fungi And Bacteria Team Up For A Tastier Rind

It was the tiny streams of slime that stood out. As a microbiologist who studies the rinds of cheeses like Stilton, Gruyere and Taleggio, Benjamin Wolfe had done plenty of experiments on bacteria, yeast and mold. But he'd never seen anything like this. He wasn't actually running a lab test when he noticed those slimy streams — he was working with a photographer to document the microbes of a Saint-Nectaire rind. He expected to show the photographer what he normally saw from cheese microbes:...

The Far Out History Of How Hippie Food Spread Across America

Frustrated with the Vietnam War, The Man, and the general state of the nation, hippies set out to do everything differently. They founded rural communes, dabbled in psychedelics and cultivated a laissez-faire approach to personal hygiene. But, like everyone else in the world, they had to eat. Mainstream fare — Wonder Bread and frozen vegetables — clashed with their politics. So they explored and invented new foods, then enthusiastically shared their creations. And despite the disbanding of...

'Don't Think A Robot Could Do This': Warehouse Workers Aren't Worried For Their Jobs

The wheels of a tall, metal cart squeak as Chris Beatty, 26, pulls it through a maze of aisles inside a cosmetics warehouse in Burlington, N.J. A hand-held scanner helps Beatty find specific items, such as face cream or lipstick — to be sorted, packed and shipped to online customers. In his industry, this is called picking. Asked if a robot could do his job, Beatty responds with a long pause. "That's a tough one," he says eventually, "but I don't think a robot could do this." Or, maybe he...
