"A J W S dot O RG This is morning edition from NPR news I mean Martinez in Culver City California And I'm Noelle king in Washington D.C. good morning The women's tennis association is suspending tournaments in China and Hong Kong over concerns about the tennis star punctual She accused a Chinese government official of sexual assault and then she vanished for a while since then she's rarely been seen in public except in tightly controlled settings with government minders Earlier I talked to NPR's Tom Goldman who's been covering this one and I asked him why the WTA took this action Well even though Peng Shui reappeared after her disappearance and was shown in photos and videos Steve Simon and her other supporters said they still doubted she was genuinely safe and worried the appearances were stage managed and also that pung sexual assault allegation wasn't going to be investigated So for those reasons and because as you said in his statement he doesn't want to put other players or WTA staff at risk the WTA is taking its business and it's pretty big business out of China Right so you have a sports organization acting on principle over profit That seems rather unique Very the WTA so far as a loan and what it's doing In recent years we've seen both English soccer's primarily We've seen the NBA get into trouble when a soccer player and a basketball executive made political statements against the Chinese government Now those organizations tried to distance themselves from the statements but the NBA still lost several $100 million in Chinese business It is estimated the WTA could lose hundreds of millions as well It puts on average ten events a year in China including the season ending WTA finals even though the recent schedules been cut short by the pandemic China tournaments can be relocated making up for some of the losses But leaving China still will have an impact Has the WTA said how long the suspension of tournaments in China and Hong Kong will last All it said in Steve Simon's statement is that the women's tour will return if China takes the steps the WTA has asked for the ability to talk upon without the government interfering the investigation of her sexual assault allegation And it sounds like it could be a while based on a fairly indignant editorial today in China's state run media The editorial says the WTA has put on an exaggerated show It's bringing politics into women's tennis opening a Pandora's box and is a betrayer of the Olympic spirit I mean Tom it's worth saying that the Winter Olympics will happen in February They will happen in China If the WTA is continuing to not hold tournaments there if pung's status is still uncertain what does that mean for the Olympics You know a lot of activists and China critics hope that there is a big impact on the Olympic Games They would love to see the WTA's stance repeated with tough talk and action by other sports organizations Olympic sponsors even Olympic athletes and they want it not just for the pun case but for the bigger ongoing issues of human rights violations in China violations the Chinese government denies but when it comes to its treatment of its Uighur minority the U.S. government has labeled that as genocide Those critics see a great opportunity and potential leverage with the global spotlight the Olympics create But so far we're not seeing any action beyond what the WTA has done And it's to be determined if anything will alter the games which are going to be severely locked down and controlled anyway because of the pandemic And Pierre's Tom Goldman thank you Tom You're welcome So far the price of partridges has not been affected by this year's high inflation But if you want to peer tree that's going to cost you Turtle doves and French hens are also getting more expensive.

"This week on the experiment a podcast from the Atlantic and WNYC studios last spring we did a story about felony murder a legal rule you might not have heard of that put anissa Jordan in prison for life I'm not no murderer I'm not a killer And depending on who you talk to it's either a tool for reform or a barbaric rule that should be abolished How could four people pull one trigger That doesn't make no sense to me Listen and subscribe to the experiment wherever you get podcasts It's morning edition from NPR news I'm the well king in Washington D.C. Martinez and Culver City California The U.S. is now one of two dozen countries that have confirmed cases of the omicron variant The case was discovered in San Francisco and experts had said it was only a matter of time before the variant was going to be found here NPR is ping Huang He's here to tell us more So well what do we know about this case found in the U.S. Well it was found in a San Francisco resident who had gone on a trip to South Africa and returned on November 22nd They felt sick around Thanksgiving got tested on the 28th and then a lab in California and the CDC confirmed that this person's code case was caused by ome California governor California governor Gavin Newsom offered a few details about the infected person Fully vaccinated not boosted This individual has not been hospitalized the individuals that this individuals come into contact with have not tested positive yet to our knowledge The person had gotten two doses of the Moderna vaccine and was an eligible for a booster since it hadn't been 6 months Now even if this person doesn't spread the virus to others Omar Khan has now been found in some two dozen countries and health officials say with global travel and the way the virus spreads they do expect more cases to be found in the U.S. Now remind us what's so concerning about this variant Well it has a lot of mutations and researchers looking at the virus's genetic code wonder if it might cause more if it might be more contagious or cause a different disease But doctor Anthony Fauci the president's chief medical adviser says it's going to take some time to figure out if these concerns are warranted In a matter of two weeks or two and a half three weeks will know a lot about transmissibility about whether or not essentially eludes some of the protection from things like monoclonal antibodies Monoclonals are one of the treatments we have Another big question is whether the vaccines we have still work well against the variant and none of this is for sure yet A lot of these answers will come from watching countries like South Africa where Omar Khan now seems to be dominant in cases are surging Ali mokdad who tracks COVID at the University of Washington says the U.S. may not be far behind Expectation as it will take 6 to 8 weeks to spread all over the United States and if it is able to compete with Delta it will be definitely the main one circulating in the U.S. 6 to 8 weeks Okay 6 to 8 weeks That sounds pretty quick So if I'm a crime does turn out to be more transmissible are we doing enough to stop the spread Well the focus on this one U.S. case might remind people of the beginning of the pandemic when one case turned to many and hospitalizations and deaths soon followed But doctor Ali Khan an epidemiologist at the university of Nebraska says we're now in a much different place We now have vaccines available to us We have testing available to us and we have Therapeutics available to us and we know how to manage this disease with good old public health measures And yesterday President Biden said it's time to.

How Lowriders Were A Protest Against White Supremacy
"The low rider movement was also political as a journalist of the nineteen seventies wrote quote. Low writing culture expresses the refusal of young chicano american to be anglicized. Never been a clear case of the automobile being used as an ethnic statement when mexican-americans drove low riders. They're both claiming their identity. And refusing to become invisible hassled by cops pigeonholed by the media and profiled by the general public. There is often a cost but the reward as it is so often in car culture was freedom. The history of low riding is as old as the history of los angeles car culture itself. If you've been to la or even if you haven't you're probably aware that it's a spread out city of wide boulevards and busy highways. You pretty much need a car to get around. And that's been the case for over a century of the city's history as early as the nineteen twenties. The city had an auto ownership rate of one car for every two point. Two five people compare that to the national average at the time which was one car for every seven people and it's because the tire companies paid to have the public transit yet. They show it in the documentary roger rabbit. It's very enticing to say that there is you know why conspiracy there probably was. There is definitely benefit for certain parties to shut it down but also people also liked having their own cars. So is a mix of things almost as soon as cars got into the hands of angelenos. Enterprising owners dissatisfied with stock sameness of cars like the ford model. A or the chrysler fifty eight quickly got into modifying them and stripping. Wait to create hot rods. Which back in the day were known as hop ups or cow jobs. I'm so glad that word has died out. What is a gal. I've idea let's bring that back. Yeah we got bring back. Dow job algi. That's so funny. My girlfriend said no more gal job. So i get the ones i have running cow job. My girlfriend says i gotta get a real job. Get rid of all my gal jobs. Cow jobs okay. So i found an an inch of blog post on jalopy journal dot com talking about the term gal job and just like hopped up or souped up right how that came from like racehorse giving racehorses like pills pills or drugs to improve their performance gal was also a nickname for like drugs as well So you're gone up your horse. The gow job got it and yeah while the initial focus was on speed some maters quickly became interested in how far they could push the envelope and other ways the great depression of the nineteen thirties was an added incentive for kearns iast to fix up and modify older cars rather than buying the latest and greatest the predominant car culture was creating hot rods. But there's a counterculture developing especially among the mexican american community that was a direct reaction to the dominant mostly white rod. Seen at first it wasn't known as low writing. It was just lowering your car. Also popular was chopping or lowering the roof of the car. Decorating vehicle's exterior with designs and replacing stock interior components with plush luxury substitutes. Still the term low rider hadn't yet been coined in the thirties. The clear predecessor of low rider history in the chicano community was a co style. A slang word that roughly translates to punk or troublemaker. But you goes were known for wearing zoot suits slipping their hair back and duck tales a distinctive pattern of slang and in association with swing in jazz. Music is so cool. I watched like archival footage of and they're just like i wish i could pull that style off. My grandpa had zoot suit back in the day. I wish that you are the same like personality. You had the same job hobbies but you just were every day. I'm like accidentally slamming the coattails of my zoot suit in my impreza. Guys look pretty cool. Still pacheco's weren't necessarily associated with a specific style of automobile wasn't until the fifties that mexican american culture started to really embrace the low rider aesthetic in the nineteen fifties. Many white hot-rodders chose to raise their car turning away from the sleek look that had been popular before the war in the words of chicano artists gabriel gibson. White drivers quote went into hot rods and fast cars. They would raise their cars. These big all motors these big trucks but the raza for the race says now i want to do the opposite on a nice and slow slow and low. The one thousand nine hundred fifty saw the true emergence of low rider culture especially in los angeles in the postwar period. Los angeles was a hub for american auto manufacturing. Second only to detroit with ford chrysler and general motors. All operating assembly plants in the area matching if that was still true. That'd be cool. Yeah bill alice. Ten cities ton is stan. Low rider culture. You have to understand. The history of los angeles and it's mexican population originally founded as a spanish mission to spread catholicism in the seventeen hundreds by the eighteen hundreds it had evolved into a forming and ranching up while the land owners were initially of spanish and mexican descent by the eighteen fifties white americans began to dominate. Los angeles is economy and governments prize surprise. Although mexican americans. And even chinese immigrants outnumbered white americans white angelenos still held most of the political power in the city while the white neighborhoods of los angeles boomed tocado in hispanic populations were increasingly regulated to urban ghettos or barrios especially in the east los angeles area away from the pacific ocean and the downtown core at first these neighborhoods were little more than shantytowns but after world war two the population of l. a. began to explode. The city had one of the largest populations of mexican people living anywhere in the world including mexico. Thousands of mexican americans who had served in the war returned or moved to los angeles and with the cash stipend provided by the gi bill. Many of these vets had the income to afford a car of course despite the improved economic times mexican american communities were still far from the luxury of beverly hills or the film set glamour of hollywood. I'd say hollywood is trying to say that convincingly knowing that hollywood is not very glamorous. Yeah i'm sure back in the day it was but the thing i find funny in interesting seeing like torres families like german tourists in like they're blonde hair and jean shorts like walking around hollywood so confused. Yeah well this is a this place full of like forty dollars suit stores and like weird pizza places. If you're coming to la don't go to hollywood. It's pretty bad. Plus all the studios are like in culver. All the studio sony's in color but most of them are in north hollywood. With their means of expression limited. Low riders became an important symbol of personal expression. Freedom and cultural independence
