NPR NEWS PARIS There are more than 31,000 post offices in this country. They sell stamps and services. But in many places, especially in rural areas, that's just not enough to cover their costs. Here's NPR's Brian Naylor. Some 42% of the nation's post offices were underwater in 2019 not generating enough revenue to cover their expenses, according to the Postal Service's inspector general. Half of those that didn't cover their costs are within five miles of another post office. So are there too many post offices? The short answer is no. That's Paul Styler of the right leaning Lexington Institute. And who studies the U. S. Postal Service, he says the agency looked at this issue a decade ago. Patrick Donahue, the postmaster general at the time, proposed closing 3700 post offices. About 12% of the number that are in the country today, and frankly, there was a fire storm of bipartisan, intense congressional opposition to this. It's a bipartisan issue because the rural post offices tend to be in Red State America. James O'Rourke is a professor at Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business, He says the Postal Service settled for service cutbacks. What they did was leave them open and reduce operating hours. To about six hours in some cases for and even his few is two hours at some post offices, But the inspector general's report says the Postal Service hasn't taken any further steps to make more money at its retail operations, but does have several options. There's a congressional subsidy for rural post offices, which the Postal Service has never used, and there are other services it could be providing, like selling hunting and fishing licenses. Leasing part of their buildings, or, O'Rourke says Getting into banking access to safe and affordable financial services, I think is vital, particularly among low income families. It's something the Postal Service could do very easily. They've got the locations. They have clerks that are trained and accepting and managing money, and they have a focus on customer service..

Video Shows Police in Paris Beating a Black Music Producer

"VIDEO showing three Paris police officers beating a black man is causing outrage in France. As NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reports, the government is pushing controversial legislation that would make it a crime to circulate video showing police officers faces. The police apparently didn't know they were being filmed by a security camera as they push the music producer through a doorway inside his own studio. Punching him repeatedly and hitting him with a Billy club. I thought it was the last day of my life, he told an online news network. The incident comes just days after an episode of police brutality with a group of migrants that shocked many politicians, including the mayor of Paris, Interior Minister General Dharma not appeared on the nightly news and said there would be an investigation. The TV presenter told him. The video reminded the French of what had happened to George Floyd. Domina said the officers had been suspended and would likely be fired. They've sullied the police uniform, he said.

The Last 4 Years Have Tarnished U.S. Image In Europe. Will Biden Be Able To Improve It?

"He will work to rebuild relationships with European leaders. But as NPR's Eleanor Beardslee reports, the last four years may have permanently tarnished America's image in Europe. Welcome to the third edition off the Paris Peace Forum you have. The Paris Peace forum opened this week more than 150 nations and organizations looking for ways to solve the world's problems through multilateralism and international cooperation. Director and founders used on Vase says even though it's virtual this year, the U. S still sent no official representative. So in 2018. When the forum was founded, Donald Trump was actually in Paris because he was there for the 100th anniversary off World War one, and even though he was present in Paris, he didn't show up at the forum, even though leaders like Merkel, putting twiddle and many others where actually present Aside from a few liberal populist governments on Europe's eastern flank, most of Europe is breathing a sigh of relief over the change in administration and nowhere more so than in Germany. So I used to be a fan of Merkel. I used to think she was terrific. A big leader, great leader. I think what she did to Germany is a disgrace. President Trump loved toe lash out at Germany and its chancellor, Angela Merkel, Even on the campaign trail suited David will of the German Marshall Fund says German opinions of the U. S have never been lower. Just a quarter percent of Germans have a positive view of the United States at the moment. There have been other low point, says David Wilt, like during the Iraq war, But America's image quickly rebounded with the election of Barack Obama. This time, David Wilkes says America's image may not recover so fast. Germans have become very savvy to US politics and also realized that although President Trump lost, he did better than expected and Trumpism is here to stay for the near future. Trump's tariffs on European food and wine and his threats to withdraw from NATO have made many in Europe feel they can't count on the U. S as before excitedly. And then Dylan's off. I'm not in 2017 Miracle proclaimed that Europe must depend on itself. Sylvie Kauffmann, deputy editor of French newspaper, Le moaned, says Biden will make the transatlantic relationship positive and amicable again. And she says Europeans were impressed by the U. S election when we so that the turnout was so high That people were going to vote in droves or had made their votes. The fact that the turnout was so high I gave the impression that you know democracy was working. But Kaufman says political events since the election do not bode well for America's image, the fact that President Trump is refusing to concede Calling for demonstrations that the Republican leadership is not backing down either. Four years of populism and isolationism in America have had an impact in Europe. 29 year old Parisian Martin Cangelosi says after Trump he doesn't see America the way he used to. When I was a kid, I used to think America was a great players like a dream. You know the American dream that something in Europe We think about you know with, for example. Now, I don't even think America is still a great country. I feel really sorry about that a regret shared by many Europeans who worry that the United States and Europe have grown permanently further apart. Eleanor Beardsley. NPR NEWS PARIS

France: Suspects behind beheading called for teacher’s death

"French police are making arrests after the beheading of a school teacher. He showed caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed in a civics class about freedom of expression and guards. Eleanor Beardsley reports, officers have raided the homes of dozens of suspected Islamist militants. The killing of 47 year old history teacher Samuel Patty has sparked outrage in France. Patty was beheaded by an 18 year old Chechen refugee who was angry the teacher had shown the caricatures The anti terrorist prosecutor says the murderer, whose name has not been released and who was killed by police was no doubt motivated by the hate speech about the teachers circulating in some chat rooms. French Interior Minister Gerard Darmon on said the swoop on Islamist networks was designed to send a message that enemies of the republic will not enjoy a minute's respite. Domina says he's looking into dissolving certain groups from the French Muslim community who are accused of promoting violence and hate. Eleanor Beardsley. NPR NEWS PARIS

"The Nazi plunder of Jewish owned artwork in Europe during World War two is well known, but the Nazis Also looted thousands of musical instruments from Jews. A conference of researchers in Paris discussed this looting. NPR's Eleanor Beardsley was there, and she sent this report in the spring of 1945 with Paris liberated, but the war in Europe not yet over, French officials announced that hundreds of stolen pianos would be exhibited in three warehouses. French archivist Caroline Picket, E says those who'd lost an instrument were invited to write letters to make an appointment to take offence. You know, you know, I was astounded to find their pianos and so many Jewish homes, even the most modest ones for Taylor's in corset makers.

They're already commandos ready to seize and steal all the cultural things off youth in France. They emptied. The apartments of prominent musicians who had fled. The next wave of plundering came with the deportation of ordinary Jews beginning in 1942. It's really a very sophisticated personalization the Jews, of course, sent to concentration camps in their processions. Were catalogs and inventoried and systematically sense to mainly German people has had several strong The Allied bombings. Both Defreeze and Picket E were at the Paris gathering of scholars. So was Carla Shop pro who teaches law and European studies at the University of California, Berkeley. A pro, says there are families still looking for their instruments. But the work is difficult because the documentation is so scattered. Every nation has records. There's many, many different bodies of records. And went out looking at all of those and seeing their interconnections.

Then at least a notice some police helicopters circling over their apartment know, their snipers on the real there spy cans in our bedroom. And everyone was watching me a cell phone was like giving me weird messages. Lisa waited for the police to come in and take her.
