"Voter fraud. Wendy Rogers, the Arizona senator, I mentioned earlier, she introduced a bill that would create a $5 million law enforcement agency. Dedicated to, you guessed it, election crimes. There was an almost identical bill to the one that passed in Florida. Now keep in mind, Arizona already has an election's integrity unit in the attorney general's office. The bill that senator Rogers introduced this time around. But she's up for reelection in November, and she's broken state fundraising records. She's just shattered them. So I don't think we've seen the end of that bill. And it sounds like we haven't seen the end of a lot of these bills. Right. This is much bigger than Arizona. And with the November election around the corner, there's no doubt we're going to see many of these new laws tested. SA, thanks so much for coming on. Yeah, thank you for having me.

Hitchcock has just released a new album called shuffle mania, a collection of surreal party rock about topics like Mayan mythology, Greek philosophers and TV detectives.

When composer Ingram Marshall died back in June, American music lost a pioneer in the use of tape technology and then digital delays in contemporary music. His works often incorporated post minimalism ambient electronics and echoes of Indonesian gamelan music, along with the occasional nod to Beethoven or sibelius. Many of his pieces had a dark nocturnal aspect, which led to the use of this piece, fog tropes in the Martin Scorsese film Shutter Island.

With 8 members Caroline looks like a combination rock band and chamber music ensemble, and their songs are a blurry mix of indie folk and post rock music. Phrases are chanted, intermittently, drones are established, and then carefully moved, and in live performance the band has a tendency to play in the round as if in the middle of some private ceremony.

"Natural gas and it's already slashed its imports. Goldwin says the Kremlin's talk about selling that gas to China instead is just a pipe dream. Leaving aside how long it takes to cut a deal with the Chinese. The construction of that pipeline and those fields, you're talking, you're talking years, if not a decade. Georgetown's Gustafson says now, even if the war in Ukraine ended tomorrow, it's unlikely Europe would change its course on Russian energy because Putin's moves have tarnished Russia's reputation as a reliable supplier. The Russians worked very hard. Assiduously for 6 decades to build a gas business in Europe. And now Putin has ripped it apart. It will never recover. And that is absolutely baffling. That's if Europe can stay united and make it through the next month without Russian gas. Jackie northam and PR news. You're listening to NPR news. On WNYC, it's morning edition at 5 43.

"Sarasota school districts has frozen the purchase of new library books and stopped accepting donated books, even of dictionaries, until they can hire media specialists to vet each book. But not every district is doing the same in nearby pinellas county, the district said classroom teachers need not remove their classroom libraries, and issues of students pronouns are being handled on a case by case basis there. Andrew spar is president of the state's largest teachers union known as the Florida education association. These laws are meant to create confusion or meant to create chaos and they are doing that, but overwhelmingly parents see these laws as distractions away from what matters and we should focus on what matters, which is our kids. Some teachers are vowing not to change how they teach, like Brandt Robinson, who teaches history at dunned in high school and is in his 26th year of teaching. I'm not really going to change not only anything that I teach, but I'm not going to change the way I teach about it because I'm really confident that my students understand that it doesn't matter how they feel about a political issue. The most important thing is that they feel valued. Florida school districts are waiting for more detailed guidance from the state, and that could take a while. In the meantime, a number of legal challenges have been filed against the new laws. For NPR news, I'm Carrie Sheridan in Sarasota. This is NPR news. This is doubly NYC.

"An elective Supreme Court. There's a list of reasons Montana Republicans are laser focused on the judiciary. At the top is to ban abortion. That's because in 1999, the state Supreme Court said Montana's constitutional right to privacy protects access to abortion here, Republicans are looking for a way around that precedent known as the Armstrong decision. So at this point, we basically have two paths forward. Jeff Las lafi, a well-known conservative lobbyist, sent this audio update to conservative radio stations across the state. We can either amend the Montana constitution to ban abortion, or we can replace enough justices on the Montana Supreme Court to overturn the Armstrong decision. In 2020, Republicans won all statewide elected offices and gained ten seats in the state legislature. The state Supreme Court is the party's last territory to conquer. One Democrat whose advocated for abortion access since the 1960s is state senator Diane sands. This is not a problem that the federal government can solve. She recently visited The White House for a round table with vice president Kamala Harris, and highlighted Republican legislation passed last year. It gave Montana's governor unilateral power to appoint judges to vacant positions in between elections that was previously the job of an independent commission. In the long game, these forces in Montana are going after the Montana constitution because they know it is the sole barrier to achieving their goal to making abortion illegal. Montero Democrats are putting their weight behind incumbent state justice Ingrid Gustafson, who faces James Brown in the general election. Democrats in Montana want to protect the Armstrong ruling, which isn't necessarily set in stone. In Iowa in 2018, for instance, the state's Supreme Court overturned a precedent protecting abortion. Since Dobbs, state abortion law has already been put before state supreme courts in Utah, Michigan, Louisiana, and Arizona, among others. Douglas Keith is counsel at the Brennan center's democracy program focused on the courts. For lots of us, the importance of state supreme courts is really just coming into focus. But that focus on state Supreme Court's Keith says has actually been growing since the 1980s. It's just become more widespread and spendy. In 1999, around 7 states had judges who'd run in a $1 million race, but by 2016, 20 states had a judge who'd run in a $1 million race. Those numbers are adjusted for inflation. This year, more than 30 states will hold elections for 86 seats on state supreme courts. For NPR news, I'm shaylee riger and Helena Montana. This is NPR news. At 7 40.

I'm Alison Stewart join me for all of it weekdays at noon on WNYC It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Rachel Martin And I'm Stephen skip the United States has hit a new pandemic record There are now more people hospitalized with COVID-19 than in any other point in the pandemic If you doubt this visit an emergency room NPR's will stone reports America's astronomical number of infections can feel abstract But in emergency rooms they are concrete Excruciating wait times patients filling the waiting rooms unable to get a bed This is about as bad as I can recall in my lifetime That's doctor Gabe Callen chair of emergency medicine at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore The emergency departments are like the one open venue for everybody And we are being absolutely crushed They're putting patients outside in tents or keeping them in the hallways wherever they can find space Maryland is an especially bad shape but it's a similar picture all over the country including in Tucson Arizona where ER doctor Bradley Dreyfus works Literally there are patients in our emergency department who have been there for over 200 hours waiting for placement That is they're on a gurney in the hallway waiting for an actual hospital bed Problem is there are none Our hospitals are totally full We're not able to admit patients We don't even have admitting teams currently We are not able to get patients where they need to be because our system is literally collapsing Dreyfus is seeing the fallout firsthand Patients leaving the ER only to come back later even more sick in St. Louis doctor aleksan Gupta oversees the emergency rooms at mercy hospitals He says one day last week their busiest ER saw about a 50% jump in patients All of our emergency departments and our hospitals are really getting hit much harder this time around This is true for many ERs right now and syn Gupta says there are two primary reasons We have large volumes but then we also have staff that are out and they have to quarantine before they can come back to work Is so infectious and move so fast that the sheer volume of patients pouring into ERs is staggering But Seattle ER doctor Greg Miller says he's seeing some differences ERs are as busy or busier than ever But the overall group of patients that's coming in isn't quite as sick now as it used to be Miller's chief medical officer for vituity a company that has thousands of ER doctors around the country In general he says doctors are finding that the proportion of COVID patients who show up at the ER and need to be admitted is smaller than earlier in the pandemic That's largely because people have immunity from vaccination and prior infection and because of ocron itself Studies in the U.S. and from overseas do show people have less severe illness compared to Delta And so you've got these two competing forces increased infectiousness decreased lethality which one of those forces is going to win out And unfortunately what we're seeing right now is it's the increased infectiousness that's really winning out and driving hospital admissions In other words the numbers are just too big especially in places where vaccination rates are low Doctor Casey Clements is with the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota The majority of the patients who have been in our ICU in the last several weeks are still unvaccinated And with their hospital as full as it ever has been that keeps people stuck in the ER and backs up the entire hospital disrupting care for all kinds of patients This only crown wave is really turning out to be much worse than previous waves including Delta And he worries this surge could be the most dangerous yet NPR's will stone has been reporting there and will I want to follow up on that This is less dangerous for any given individual but some people get sick so what kinds of people are ending up in the hospital Yeah most of the vaccinated people who are sick enough to be admitted to the hospital They often have several underlying risk factors And COVID kind of tips them over the edge Then there are still unvaccinated people coming in Some of them young otherwise healthy who are very sick And then some people are coming into the ER for a different medical emergency They just turn out to be positive Actually there are quite a few people who are showing up simply to get tested because they can't find a test anywhere else And of course that's not how things are supposed to work How does that affect hospital patients who do not have COVID Yeah when hospitals are under duress everyone suffers surgeries are canceled patients who have emergencies can't find a bed I spoke to Dr. Ruth Frank's net occur And this is what she's seeing in her big hospital in Phoenix and we should warn it's pretty graphic I couldn't believe that in a single week on service in the hospital I had three patients that needed amputations Their infections in their limbs had gone too long that they needed one needed and above the knee amputation and two of them needed below the knee amputations Snedeker said none of these patients had COVID but they had either waited too long at home or they couldn't get the care they needed And she says this would not be happening if the healthcare system wasn't so overwhelmed Just to remind you that whatever choices we make and whatever chances we run into can affect other people will thanks so much Thank you And peers will Government price checkers release their latest report on inflation this morning and it's expected to show the biggest hit to consumers pocketbooks in nearly 40 years Many people are asking who or what is to blame for the soaring prices Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren suggested this week that greedy corporations are trying to fatten their bottom line We can't overlook the role that concentrated corporate power has played in creating the conditions for price gouging Other progressives are also pointing to profiteering as a factor in today's high prices and Pierre Scott horsley has more To Jason fuhrman who served as a top economist in the Obama White House there's no big mystery behind the rising inflation rates Ever since the pandemic struck people have been buying an awful lot of stuff and with both workers and materials in short supply companies are having a hard time keeping up When more people want to buy things than companies are capable of making Prices go up That's just the law of supply and demand Dismisses the idea that greedy corporations are to blame He says companies are no greedier now than they were before the pandemic When inflation generally hovered below 2% Companies always want to maximize their profits I don't think they're doing it anymore this year than any other year But whatever the economic merits corporate profiteering is a convenient political target especially for Democrats who are on the defensive Democratic pollster margin says it resonates with people who are feeling the pinch of pricey gas and groceries People are approaching this not as economists but what they're observing A lot of voters feel that companies and the wealthy are getting wealthier while other folks are struggling and having a harder time keeping up And economist Isabella Weber of the university of Massachusetts says the pandemic has created opportunities for some companies to pad their bottom line not just covering higher cost but expanding their profit margins as well Ordinarily businesses that raise prices run the risk of losing customers to the competition But when demand is strong and competition hamstrung by supply shortages that ceiling on prices comes off It's a little bit like the guy who says water at $20 a Potter after hurricane which is only possible because everybody wants to buy water but the local supplies fixed.

"Caroline Shaw wrote this piece. For a surprising band. The river town duo consists of a harp and a bass. What's even more surprising is we didn't have to look very far to find more music for Hartmann base, despite those being two instruments that you don't often see playing together. Harpist Brandee younger and basis, Desmond Douglas have done a whole record of duets will get a chance to hear them doing a Kate Bush song and affair of Sanders track in the next hour on New Sounds. I'm John Shafer will hear this Caroline Shaw work for the River town duo is well and actually, we're going to hear a fair amount of Caroline Shaw in the first half of the show. Because Bass and Harp is not the only unusual instrumental group she's written for. Her piece, called The Narrow Sea is a collaboration, one of a couple that she's done with so percussion. The quartet that has appeared in our new sounds live Syria's with many different collaborators over the years, But the narrow sea also features soprano Dawn Upshaw and pianist Gilbert Kalish. Now piano and voice. That's a classic combo. But the addition of so percussion really changes things, and I mean that literally. There's one part where five of the musicians are playing the strings inside the piano. And there are ceramic bowls and flower pots and all sorts of unexpected sounds. The narrow sea is an original work By Caroline Shaw. It's in five parts. But the texts all come from old hymns from the so called shape note hymns that were published in the South in the mid 19th century. So you may actually recognize the words some of the words anyway, especially in the first and last parts because they're both from the popular song Wayfaring Stranger. In between Part two's lyrics come from there is a land of pure delight. Part three is 61 sweet rivers and part four is on Jordan's stormy banks and All of the texts are about crossing over and the water a river ISI as something that separates this life from the next, So let's hear the peace. The Narrow Sea by Caroline Shaw. Son by Dawn Upshaw with Gilbert Kalish on piano and sometimes in the piano and so percussion on everything else..

And, in fact, Alloy is the name of one of the records that tie Sean Story has recorded. And which will hear a bit of his well on this edition of new Sounds. I'm John Shafer will check in with Tai Shan story, And here's some of the music as it was recorded by the crash ensemble in Cincinnati at the music now festival in just a moment. But let's begin with this piece called Cascade in slow motion from Taishan stories trio and an album called Verisimilitude. Yeah. Yeah. Tayshaun story trio with Corey smiled on piano, Chris Tardini on base tie, Shaun himself playing drums and percussion cascade and slow motion from a 2017 album called Verisimilitude. Hi Sean. Story featured on this edition of new sounds. He is composer conductor improviser. He is winner of the MacArthur Award. The MacArthur Fellowship, the so called Genius Award. And in the spring of 2018. He was one of the featured artists at the music Now festival in Cincinnati Festival that was started by Bryce Designer the guitarist from the National who was also a sought after classical composer and, like Thai, Shawn Easily exists in and between several musical worlds. And so it seemed to me that this was a kind of particularly appropriate festival for Thai Sean Story. So, Taishan it seems like we're getting to see and hear two different sides of your music right here at the festival. Definitely it Z So great to be a part of the festival like this. And you know, I like being in a place where it's you know, neutral like this. You know where this sort of idea of Genera mobility. You know, it's sort of allowed, you know, because often you know, it's a lot different from let's say a jazz festival. You know where, you know people kind of expect, you know, one kind of thing. You know when you participate in something like that. But this is far different from that. You can't really expect anything. And as my model usually goes, if you come to any of my concerts, like, do not go in there expecting anything. Just go in there and listen, and that's all that. You know. This is this is just the only requirement you know in the music. You know, it seems that people try toe. Going with some sort of expectation about what they're going to get, and then when they don't get that, then you know it's just set themselves up for failure in that way, and then they're disappointed in music, and it's like, well, I don't want people to be disappointed. You know, so just don't expect nothing. And then you know if it inspires you great, And if it doesn't in order so many other people you can see who will inspire you. And so that's how that goes well, but there's also something to be said for people walking with expectations, which would then completely subverted because I know for me. That's all. Those are often the most memorable concerts where I thought I knew what I was in four and I got something totally different. Yeah, well, that's test. There's something to be said about that, too. For sure. I definitely agree. So we have two different Events here. One of them is your music played by the crash ensemble. Right? The Dublin New Music group, and then we have the Tai Shan story trio. Right? Do you see it is two different sides, or they kind of coming from the same place kind of coming from the same place. I mean, not say, um Well, the process. Obviously, the music making process is a different I mean, they're dear music making processes of different from one another. In terms of you know how chamber ensemble musicians operate versus how so called improvisers whatever operate but in terms of the language of the music. All of that, In terms of you know, the spontaneity, spontaneous aspect of it. I'd say that they're definitely you know, they have similar similar senses of belonging to one another, I would say. So tell me a little bit about the pieces that the crash ensemble is playing. Well, the question someone will be presenting a version of my real time. A little sketchy as Aum's, which is a hybrid conducted improvisation language that I've developed out of my work that I've done with Butch Morris as well as the work that I've done with Anthony Braxton. And also a lot of my own props and gestures and visual cues and things like that, for the ensemble toe do in real time. So in a sense, you know its composition, but at the same time, it's also Sort of improvisation as well. You know, that is Tai Shan. Sorry. Recorded at the music now Festival 2018 in Cincinnati on did he conducted the crash ensemble? The auto sketchy as Mum's The word Scared E. ASM is an obscure and perhaps even obsolete word that Essentially means kind of improvised writing. So these air auto sketchy as Aum's that Tai Shan story has written but which he also conducts. Using the techniques of the late Butch Morris on Anthony Braxton. Walter Thompson, here in New York has also done this conducted improvisation sort of thing, and we'll talk a bit more about that. But here is Some of the performance by the crash Ensemble from Dublin. Conducted by Tai Shan. Story. Okay? Okay? No. Yeah. Mm hmm. Auto sketchy as Aum's by Tayshaun sorry the name refers to a kind of extemporaneous or improvised writing, and in this case It's.

"800 progressive. Since 1980 Paul Winter has gathered friends and musicians in the world's largest Gothic cathedral, the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine Right here in New York City to welcome the coming of the longer days in the New year, I'm John Shafer joined me for a special 40th anniversary edition of Paul Winters Winter Solstice concert. Monday night at 10 on 93.9 F N W N Y C This is all things considered from NPR News. I'm Michelle Martin. Thousands of boxes are being packed up and loaded today filled with the second Corona virus vaccine to be given the green light by the FDA for distribution. This is the vaccine produced by Madonna and Tomorrow those boxes will be distributed to locations throughout the United States. It is yet another historic week in the 11 months of this pandemic. Joining us now to tell us more is NPR Health reporter Selena Simmons. Duffin. Selina. Hi again, thanks for joining us. Hi, Michelle. So we were just here last week talking about the first vaccine, and now there is another authorized. I have to say it is great to have more good news. Yes, indeed. Having to vaccines and distribution is going to give a big boost to the effort to get lots of people vaccinated and help slow the spread of the virus and ultimately end the pandemic. And Madonna's vaccine is also easier to handle than the fighter by on tech vaccine that we were talking about last week. It is kept at regular freezer temperatures, and it comes in smaller shipments, which helps with planning. And today, a group of CDC advisors agreed with the FDA and give gave their official green light. So we will be seeing Moderna vaccinations in the coming days. And so this is also the end of the first week of distribution of the Visor vaccine. So how did that go? Well, I would say pretty well. There were definitely hiccups. Some hospitals didn't get as many doses is they expected there was a protest at Stanford over medical residents not getting access to initial dose is in the hospital apologized. Also, providers discovered that many of the five does files actually had six or even seven doses in them, which was good, but also unexpected and had some required some quick work to account for that. But in the scheme of nearly 300,000 doses being administered, officials are feeling really good and relieved. Here's what Claire here. And and said she's the head of the Association of Immunization Managers, the people in every state in charge of vaccination plans honestly, the things that went wrong just pale in comparison to seeing the vaccine actually going into arms. So it's just been very, very exciting and uplifting this week. Well, it is certainly heartening to see people starting to get these shots have we learned anything more about side effects? Well in the clinical trials for both Visor and Madonna pain at the injection site. We're really common and even feeling knocked out for a day or two headaches, sometimes fevers, and that's to be expected after vaccinations. It's part of your body, doing its thing having an immune response and that's what protects you from getting sick. But also today, the CDC said in a presentation that there have been six cases of anaphylaxis serious allergic reaction. All of them were treated promptly and are being investigated. Now, for people who've had serious allergic reactions in the past to things like peanuts or bee stings, CBC Advisors, You can still get these covert vaccines. You just need to be observed for 30 minutes to make sure you don't have a reaction. And if you have an allergic reaction to any of the vaccine ingredients, it is not recommended that you get the shot. Someone. Also today, a top official of Operation Works Speed held a press conference where he apologized for a miscommunication. Can you just tell us what happened there? Right. Earlier this week, State health officials and governors began to speak publicly about their vaccine allocations for next week being cut by like 20 to 40%, and this morning, General Gus Purna, who's in charge of logistics, told reporters. He took responsibility for them is miscommunication, and here's what he said. The mistake I made is not understanding with exactness all the steps that have to occur to make sure the vaccine is RELEASABLE. He said he realized it Actually. All right. Unfortunately, we seem to have lost her. That's NPR's Selina workers who were scheduled to get those shots that are now being told they have to wait and party said he.
