Rental Assistance Programs Are Swooping In To Help As Evictions Resume

"The Biden administrations eviction ban, There's even greater urgency to get billions of dollars in federal rental assistance to those who need it. Shelby County, Tennessee, is already facing that challenge. NPR's Laura Wamsley reports. SP KEY and apartments versus Delores Egleston in a courthouse in Memphis. Tenants are packed into eviction court as much as social distancing will allow when their cases are called. Tenants are asked this question by Judge Phyllis Gardner. Have you talked with anyone? Or are you interested in the rental assistance program? I've talked in case after case Gardner urges tenants to visit room 1 34 down the hall. Where Memphis area legal services attorneys help tenants start applications for rental aid. One of those attorneys, Frida Turner, stands up in the courtroom to speak about the program if you apply, and if you're approved We will pay up to 12 months of your back rent plus one month of futurist. We will bring you to zero and you'll get a fresh start a fresh start. That's what's new even if evictions aren't thanks to the billions in federal aid tenants who are behind have a chance to stay in their homes due to a federal court ruling in July. Judges here in Tennessee haven't been bound by the CDC order for more than a month. The judge Gardner, the CDC order delayed the inevitable while in Memphis, they started resolving cases. We've been able to deal with the problems to give these people and landlords some closure so that they can move on. The most recent CDC ban was intended to give states and localities more time to get assistance out to renters facing eviction. But it's been slow going by the end of July. Nationally, just over five billion of the $25 billion allocated had been spent. Several states have used less than 5% of the federal money so far. But in Memphis and

Remembering Jamaican Producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry

"In a realm where eccentrics are taken for granted. Jamaican musician Lee Scratch Perry was singular. Perry was a hugely influential producer and not just in his home genre, Reggae but in dance, music, hip hop and beyond. Perry died in Jamaica on Sunday at age 85. NPR's Anastasia Sulcus has this appreciation. Lee Perry got his nickname from a song he recorded early in his career chicken Scratch. Good. Someone like chicken scratch. He also called himself the upsetter. It was an apt description on many levels. He had a habit of having acrimonious splits with former mentors and artists he previously championed. You'll never get away from me. I am upset at Perry's own studio Black, Ark. He worked with many of Jamaica's biggest talents. Including junior Mervin, the hep tones, the Congo's and Bob Marley's band. The Whalers. Mr. Brown is a clown rides through town, even thoughtful. Black Ark. Was like a chemistry lab for Perry's sonic experiments. He was a pioneer of dub, underlining the base and adding reverb to create lots of oral space. He also sampled before most people knew the term or the technique used found sounds and even buried microphones underground to get the effect he wanted. Perry's partnership with the Whalers ended badly he secretly sold tapes they'd made with him to another label and kept the money. Years after building his fame studio, Perry reportedly burned it down. He was an impish, erratic presence, often in his later years, sporting neon colored hair and beard and fantastical

The Secret Bias Hidden in Mortgage-Approval Algorithms

"Likely to deny mortgages to people of color than to white people with comparable financial profiles, according to a report released this morning from the investigative news outlet, the markup. The team there analyzed about two million conventional mortgage applications from 2019. These are separate from the one subsidized by the government for people with lower credit scores. The new analysis finds that nationwide lenders were 40% more likely to reject Latina X applicants and 80% more likely to reject black applicants. Key suspect here, Bias built into the algorithms software used to guide the loan approval process. I spoke to Emanuel Martinez, Data reporter at the Markup who worked on this story, along with his colleague, Lauren Kershner. I found that people of color are more likely to be denied than their white counterparts even when they look financially the same, and those include factors at the lending industry said would explain them away. So for context, David, I've been looking at this topic for the last four years. I've been working with this data extensively in the first time around. I published this analysis found the same thing. Lenders told me that they weren't denying people of color because of their race. They were denying them because of things like debt to income ratio combined loan to value racial And now with this analysis, I have those two ratios. And I still find that people of color are denied at higher rates even when including those two important financial characteristics now I saw and you cited the American Bankers Association. He said. The data that you could get still had limitations, and they don't believe you've made the case that the system discriminates right there. Updated statement is that it's still about credit score and credit histories. But when the C F P B when the government looked at that particular metric, they found that when they hold credit score, constant people of color still are denied at higher rates than their white counterparts.

"Biden says he's focused on getting Americans out of Afghanistan by August. 31st The president updated the country today on the status of evacuations out of Kabul, less than a week after the Taliban overthrew the Afghan government. NPR's Asma Khalid reports, The administration has been facing mounting criticism for the chaotic scenes that continue to play out at the airport in the capital. The White House says the military has evacuated roughly 13,000 people since August 14th. It doesn't have an exact tally of how many Americans are still in Afghanistan. Despite reports of chaos on the ground near the airport, Biden offered this promise. Let me be clear any American who wants to come home, we will get you home. There are reports of Afghans getting stopped at Taliban checkpoints. The president says there's been no indication that Americans can't reach the airport, citing an agreement with the Taliban to allow Americans through.

The Dixie Fire Continues to Rage

"The Dixie Fire continues to rage. It's now the largest single wildfire in California history and has burned more than 505,000 acres. Is still threatening at least a dozen small communities. It's destroyed 1000 buildings, many of them homes, Cal Fire chief Tom Porter says almost a month after the fire broke out, there are new challenges on the horizon. The concern we have going into the next few days is another bout of monsoonal moisture coming up through Southern California. Turning into dry lightning potentially through this area and all the way to the north coast of California and then into Oregon, Washington as well, Porter says. The conditions are so dry that a single blade of grass can be a mission point. After 29 days, battling the Dixie Fire Containment stands at just 30%. With thousands of firefighters fighting blazes in California officials have decided to close down the Trinity Alps Wilderness area until November. That's a popular vacation spot with more than half a million acres of granite peaks lakes and trails. In a statement, Forestry officials say they can't spare the aircraft and personnel needed to track down lost or endangered hikers. They also hope the move will help prevent new fires from igniting in

"Opera. Annette got this year's Cannes Film Festival off to a boisterous start. The crowd gave a full five minute ovation for stars Adam Driver and Marianne Cockatiel, also for the band Sparks, which composed the music. Our critic Bob Mondello, says that the festival audience going crazy kind of make sense because the film itself is kind of deranged. Before there's anything to look at on screen and there will be astonishing things to look at. We hear the voice of director Leos Carax telling us that he intends what we are about to see to be literally breath taking. Breathing will not be tolerated during the shell. So please take a deep last breath right now. Thank you, And then he gathers his cast. So may we start and they sing their way out of the recording studio. So may we start and into the streets of Los Angeles to start a story of odd couple, Henry and Anne entertainers of radically different temperaments.

Working Toward a More Inclusive Music Industry

"One of the big stories in the music industry right now has been the response to hip hop star two babies homophobic comments, which he made during a festival in Miami late last month. As NPR's Elizabeth Blair reports, the fallout was swift as multiple festivals canceled his shows. With his millions of followers on social media. The baby has a powerful platform. He's one BT awards and been nominated for Grammys. I'm one of the greatest ain't no debate. No, no, I'm still levitated medicated. Ironic I gave him love and they and the painting on me. That's the baby on a Dua Lipa song that's in the top 10 of the Billboard's hot 100 chart. During his concert at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, he told the audience to put your cell phone light up. If you didn't show up with HIV AIDS, you didn't show up today with HIV AIDS and get up there and essentially transmitted disease making died. 23 weeks put his cell phone right now. The backlash was immediate. Dua Lipa distanced herself from the baby Lollapalooza removed him from the lineup. Then more festivals canceled two shows Elton John and Madonna railed against the misinformation in his comments about HIV. I think there's a new moment. There's definitely a new moment. The baby is a big star and Brown University professor Tricia Rose says The cost to his career is significant. At the same time, she says, the music industry has long tolerated and profited from artists like the baby. There's many, many artists who are promoted by the industry, who are celebrated by the industry because of their quote unquote edgy, extreme behavior. And you know that is a longstanding pattern that has not abated in any way And then you know when they step out of line about when and how they actually live into that identity.

Mister Schubert live with a long growing up in the south there was a right way to do things and a wrong way to do things and right way was to do what your family and society thought you should do and the wrong way was to do something different by age thirty I had done most everything I should do I had ever achieved in high school I attended a prestigious college in the south hi very important job I'd married well within the childbearing agent except for moving out nor switch because my family to collectively take to their beds I was on track with what we thought my why should look like that I wouldn't happy and I knew it was my job in my family we were expected to be in business and I've been in public relations for seven years but I didn't like the work anymore I mean I was good at it but I was tired of working for clients like retail banking traffic reporting hazardous waste recycling nothing that really blew my skirt at so I quit my full time job and I started consulting and I started taking classes to figure out what else I could do with my life and I found this brochure for the school of the museum of fine arts in Boston I thought well this looks interesting and I went to the continuing education director and I asked him which classy daughter to take and he said you need to take art is process we take burn out executives in that class all the time it's my first day of art school I try my best to look artsy to fit in even though I'm not wearing pearls they are in blaze and on my chest students range from early teens to late fifties and they're all there for different reasons and seasoned artist wanna jump starting younger artists want to build a portfolio summer professional others blocked I just feel really out of place and road our instructor introduces herself and she says there is no right way to make art and there is no wrong way to make art and this makes me extremely nervous because I had been raised that there is a right way and a wrong way to do most everything I just as in the class is going to focus on process the process of art making not the end result and this makes me more nervous because I've been raised to focus on in results and not just any in results but the best in results and there are no grades things careen out of control if there are no grades how will I know if I'm over cheating I need to know I'm over a cheating we start with the basics in my entire life I have never held a stick of charcoal in my hand and it feels good and I survived the first week of simple or exercises and I enjoy myself and the next week Bob one of the three instructor says today we're gonna do gesture drawings very fast drawings about forty five second poses and we're going to draw the energy and the movement in the essence of the figure and I'm thinking what the heck is essence and how the heck do you draw anime and the orders model starts to undress and I say no that's okay you've seen a naked man before you've even had sex with a naked man your problem is you don't know how to draw this naked man's essence and everybody else apparently does know how to draw his essence is you're basically getting out their easels and knowingly getting out sheets of paper and charcoal and other drawing mediums with which they excel and I'm just standing there like the proverbial deer in headlights and I began to watch and imitate because I am clueless but competitive and I asked you you is standing next to me and also mature student I see Judy what are the supposed to look like because of course I think there's only one right way to do this they're all going to draw the same image and she looks at me bewildered and says they're all going to look different I'm paralyzed what is mine supposed to look why can't I just do a slide presentation your board of directors says customer service capabilities conducted communications on it these are things I know how to do things in which I excel and I'd like to excel and there is no way I'm going to excel drawing this naked me its essence I stand there and I consider crying and then the competitive side of me cakes and I say just snap out of it you big wimp and do something so I started making these helpless stick figures every forty five seconds because that's how fast the poses are every forty five seconds and every forty five seconds I feel like a total failure which is a lot of times in one hour it's AT and a shame is enormous and I am so mortified how inept I and I and beating myself up for every tempting anything different for even trying anything new and I'm in a literal physical pain I'm so far out of my comfort level I mean I actually hurt and I consider crying again and that's when Bob comes over to me and shows me what an amazing teachers
