Pulitzer Prize winning composer Julia Wolf wrote this piece called Fire in My Mouth for the New York Philharmonic, inspired by the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire. A tragedy that cost 146 people their lives. They were mostly young immigrant women working in essentially a sweatshop, and this turned out to be a pivotal moment in the history of American labor. It also inspired one of Julia's most colorful and ambitious and at times harrowing works. I'm John Schaefer, and we're going to devote this entire new sounds program to fire in my mouth. And joining me is the composer Julia Wolf. Julie first What gave you the idea to write a piece about this? 1911 fire? So I teach and y you on West Fourth Street and then just a block north.

Thorough Well on Bojack Horseman at bookstores and in my books dot com. From NPR News in Washington. I'm Windsor Johnston. Congressional leaders and the Trump Administration remain deadlocked on the next round of Corona virus relief legislation. NPR Scott Horsley reports, The two sides remain at odds on numerous issues, including supplemental unemployment benefits, which expired for millions of Americans. Last week. You got House Democrats who feel this is their last chance to get a wreath relief bill done this year, so they're not interested in settling for any half measures. And then you've got a White house that sort of got a agenda of its own. The president continues to talk about using executive powers to stop collecting payroll taxes, which is something neither his congressional allies nor That man. The Chamber of Commerce have expressed much interest him. NPR. Scott Horsefly, former ambassador to Japan, Bill Haggerty has won the Republican Senate primary in Tennessee. Haggerty is considered a favorite to replace outgoing Senator Lamar Alexander. Trujillo Beltran Martinez from member station VPL in reports the election could mark the end of an era in the southern state. For decades, Tennessee has sent to the U. S Senate centrist Republican such as Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker and Howard Baker. But in 2018 the state elected Senator Marshall Blackburn, a more populist candidate. And now Bill Haggerty has pledged to stick close to Trump showing that the Republican Party and electorate in Tennessee has evolved. You're listening to NPR news in Washington. And this is WNBC, New York. I'm Sean Carlson. An update on a power outage here near city this morning. Some residents in Queens are still without power. After an outage early this morning, Konrad says there's no electricity in the area around Middle Village and mass path. For more than 7700 customers. They have not yet determined the cause. It comes after much of Upper Manhattan also lost power early this morning, Cruise restored power at about 5 45 Con Ed says it's investigating a problem with their transmission system in that incident will have more on that, as we know more here on WNBC. New York City Health Commission, Oxiris Barbot left her post this week after nearly two years leading the health department, including during the height of New York's Corona virus outbreak. She is the latest high ranking person of color to leave the De Blasio administration. Mayor often spotlights the diversity of his team and the steps the city is taken to address implicit bias, but his W. Nice, Bridget Bergen reports. It's unclear what he's done to address his own. Mayor de Blasio has often talked about the need for implicit bias training for the NYPD. He in his 2016 state of the city speech, he explained the value for officers helping them identify and understand and change unconscious behaviors. It may affect their policing. The training has been in place since 2018 and it's not a panacea, but it asks officers to reflect teachers also take this kind of training. But it's unclear whether the mayor has himself taken training to spot his own biases. Asked about it the day after the highest ranking Latina in his administration left, citing her deep disappointment with him. DeBlasio wouldn't say what he's done to address his own biases beyond talking to his wife. I think it's something that every one of us should be thinking about all the time. It's certainly a conversation that Charlene and I have had for years, Bridget about how this society has coded us all. In a very negative ways that have to be weeded out. The mayor went on. Just like the premium he's placed on diversity. How a majority of senior officials are women. But the issue of how he treats staffers and the kind of culture he's cultivated within city government remains a source of deep frustration among current and former staffers at all levels and runs counter to the rhetoric he uses when he talks about making New York the fairest city. Cristina Gonzalez worked in the mayor's 2013 campaign and went on to spend about 4.5 years in City Hall. She's also part of a group of staffers who wrote an open letter to the mayor demanding changes at the NYPD stemming from the department's handling of the George Floyd protests. I appreciate that the mayor is having these What I hope our difficult conversations and important conversations with with his wife, who is a black woman, but it's it's just I hope that he understands that it's not enough, she said. If nothing is done to make women and especially women of color, feel like their voices are being heard than the leave like she did. And so many others, including Dr Barbeau. Rigid Bergen WN..

"That's very true. I think we've all experienced how different life is this year, But for kids going through critical illness, they are still fighting every single day. And so that's why we're still doing the drive so we can prepare to grant their wish is the same. Is it safe to do so? Can you donate two miles from any airline? How does this work? So we actually have a bunch of volunteers that got up early this morning. They're ready to take your phone calls, Or you can visit our website. We can take a last good delta and united miles over the phone or American Southwest and JetBlue can be donated online. And one of the great things about miles for make a wish is once they're donated our account. They don't expire for us. So people might be thinking, you know, I don't know what I'm going to be able to travel again or my miles might be expiring. I need to do something with them. So this is a really great way to put those miles two good years because we will use them to send kids on their wish Trumps once it's safe to do so. And these wish trips really can be life changing for these kids. Exactly Last year, I met a young boy named Luca and he doctors told his family. They shouldn't expect himto walk very much, and he worked very hard. He started to learn how to walk, and after he went on his wish trip, he found it to just be enough of a reset. It really showed him that his community cared about him and people supported him. And when he came back, he just really went all out in physical therapy and started walking more than anyone ever expected him to you, and that's just One example of the really transformational impact these wishes have on kids right here in our community. Well, that's good to know. Jessica. Thank you so much. Jessica Matthews with a make a wish foundation in the Washington and Alaska Just to put this into context. Every 65,000 miles donated. Equals one plane.

"Next Eartha Kitt at the Vatican on Christmas Eve. I need. I just need to know more about that. Let's get a line seven. And David David wants to talk about language a little bit as we have this conversation. Hi, David. Hi. How you doing? Great. Thanks for calling. Okay, So ah, my taking this. This's a solution looking for a problem because it is the use of the word alone. So we are tied into the idea that being alone is a bad thing. But if you turn around and say I'm by myself, It takes all the wind out of the negative feelings of being alone. So just be affirmative and say, you know if you're out You by yourself? You're always with yourself. And I have found that going by myself. Walking down the street going to a museum. It gives me the freedom. To stay as long as I want. In fact, I don't even like to go to openings with people because I have to walk around with them. I do my own thing. And you find Gem's Everywhere You turn over a new, you know, so just change your attitude. Change your wordage and don't be a prisoner of the word alone. Go by yourself. David. Thank you so much.

"That's where Jessica Matthews stands right now, and she knows it. I think ideas they're great, but in a weird way, it's almost like they're meaningless if they don't actually make a difference in our lives, and so Like I had to figure execution because how could I go to my cousin's be like, Oh, I have this cool idea for an energy generating soccer ball. And then, like, two weeks later, and they're like, Hey, how's it going? I'm like, Oh, I just have more ideas. Like what shocks? I'm coming until his dumb stuff Jessica, so I had to come back and be like here's prototype. What do you think everyone's going to be motivated by different things, But I'm the kind of inventor that's looking to make. Whatever amount of time we have in this world better on DSO execution has always been part of it coming up After the break. We explore the handoff from idea to execution and why making something and making it work could be so hard In total, he makes between four and 500 preparatory drawings. For this, the largest painting he's ever attempted. By far that's the most preparatory works that have ever been made in Western history for a single painting as far as we know, and, you know, he talked about charter and other cathedrals saying that you know it took 400 years to finish. Our trip took 600 years to finish Barcelona Cathedral in the Gothic quarter, and he said that God is very patient. As a client. It's you know, he doesn't want to be hurried.

"Of you saw sucking soccer ball that we were kicking around that generates electricity, A zits kicked. I don't want to get too technical, but I thought it was pretty cool. After the socket came a jump rope that use the same technology. Matthew's, finished her undergrad degree and got an MBA also at Harvard, and she started a company based in Harlem called Uncharted Power, Soccer Ball and the Jump Rope didn't turn out to be durable enough. But Matthews has raised 12.5 $1,000,000 in venture capital and is pushing her company to work on a larger scale the electric grid itself. Our platforms called more stands for motion based off good, renewable energy. And it's a platform that basically leverages are innovations in energy generation, energy transmission and energy storage. To offer what we like to call convenient energy. One advantage of convenient energy theoretically, least, is it is decentralized and therefore would not require the massive capital investments that power plants traditionally need. How well will Jessica Matthews is idea actually work? It's hard to say, and Mathews wouldn't get into the details of uncharted powers technology. And implementation. So why am I telling you this story? Because it's a story about the power of a good idea, And I think you'd agree that turning kinetic energy that's fun to generate into electricity is a good idea. Really? Why I'm telling you, this story is to point out that a good idea is worth nothing without great execution..
