expected to be discussed this afternoon when President Biden speaks with Russian president Vladimir Putin NPR's Dave missed it says the call comes at Putin's request A White House official says the administration does not know why Putin wants the call It comes as the Biden administration demands Russia pull back tens of thousands of troops along its Ukrainian border U.S. officials say there have been no signs of deescalation and that they remain gravely concerned Russia has nearly 100,000 troops in areas near Ukraine's border Ghislaine Maxwell is facing the possibility of decades behind bars

Delays this morning on MJ transit on main bargain county northeast quarter and Hudson Bergen light rail In the news governor Cathy hopeful says more than 6700 people were hospitalized with COVID across New York State as of yesterday of those more than 3000 are in New York City and the number that has doubled in the last week Locals said she hopes to avoid canceling elective surgeries on a statewide basis We do have cases where we had to stop elective surgery but we did not want to do that statewide because we know how crippling that can be for a hospital system As it stands hospitals must cancel non-essential elective procedures if their staff bed capacity drops below 10% as of Wednesday afternoon the state had not applied the band to any New York City hospitals Crime in New Jersey's largest city state flat this year new numbers from New York public safety show the city had three more homicides this year about a 6% increase from 2020 and a 10% rise from the record low rate in 2019 Mayor as Barack says Newark is not witnessing the sharp rise in homicides hitting other American cities but acknowledges that does not bring comfort to all residents You feel like you know this number can't represent you but this is clearly what the data is And we have to do our job and get into zero down in those neighborhoods and blocks that make sure you can actually feel what we're doing citywide Non fatal shootings increased by 13% in Newark this year according to the public safety division and citizen complaints of excessive force by police dropped by 44% Throwing confetti might seem simple You tell us colorful paper into the air and it flutters around before settling on the ground but organizers at the time's Times Square New Year's Eve celebration say it's always worth a test drive Jeffrey Strauss coordinates the event for the Times Square and lions He dumped buckets of confetti into the air during the annual confetti test yesterday The first test the confetti was going in the wrong direction down towards Harold square So we learned we had to throw the confetti down to make the confetti come up and then it was perfect The main event of course what

from the kresge foundation expanding opportunities in America's cities through grant making and social investing More at kresge dot org And yarl and Pamela moan thanking the people who make public radio grade every day and also those who listen It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Sarah mccammond And I'm Steve and Steve Good morning It's said that many people rarely talk by phone anymore People text or email or DM or whatever but that apparently does not apply to the presidents of the United States and Russia President Biden speaks by phone with Vladimir Putin today their second talk this month And Paris Charles maines is covering the story and I want to pause to know Charles is a familiar voice on our area has been for a while but he is now formally NPR's Moscow correspondent so Charles welcome aboard officially Wow thanks Steve Appreciate it It's announcing the privilege It's good to have your insights and what do you know about this call Well you know The White House announced the call only yesterday saint Putin had requested to speak with Biden the Kremlin spokesman here just confirmed that Putin thought the conversation was necessary and important to have They also confirmed the call take place quite late It's at three 30 in the afternoon in Washington but that's 1130 p.m. here The White House said they expected the two leaders would discuss a range of issues that includes upcoming diplomatic engagements I think that's another way to say they want to talk about efforts to defuse the situation around Ukraine and this build up of Russian forces there that has the U.S. fearing of an invasion and warning Russia of massive sanctions should it take military action Now if you're looking for hints as to how that will go Putin just posted a new year's message to the Kremlin website saying he was convinced that effective dialog with Biden was possible Is it better understood what Russia is aiming at when it puts troops on the border with Ukraine Yeah well fundamentally this is about Russia trying to essentially block a Ukraine's desire to move towards the west to thwart that Russia launched a proxy war in east Ukraine in 2014 This is where Russian backed separatists have this simmering war with the government in Kyiv But this latest Russian buildup seems to be a way for Moscow to force a conversation with the U.S. about something else which is NATO's presence along Russia's borders Putin aired these concerns what he's called his red lines in a video conference call with Biden earlier this month He spelled them out again at this annual press conference he gave last week let's listen in just a bit With this museum that means so here Putin says that any further movement by NATO towards the east is completely unacceptable to Russia and he argues the U.S. wouldn't tolerate it if the Kremlin was placing its military hardware near America's borders Now now the Kremlin says it wants security guarantees from the U.S. and it's spelled out conditions It wants no NATO membership for Ukraine and another former Soviet republic Georgia It says no military presence by NATO or weapon systems along countries bordering Russia and it wants NATO to pull back its military deployments from central Eastern Europe places like Poland and the Baltic states So at the core what Putin wants is to turn the clock back on NATO's expansion after the end of the Cold War and he's using the threat of an invasion of Ukraine to try and get it How does all of this look to the other NATO allies by which I mean Western European powers that are aligned with the United States but a lot nearer Russia Well certainly the eastern Europeans are not happy about this A lot of them look to NATO as a way to guarantee their security from Moscow's influence so of course they want a lot of the number of former communist governments taking over by the Kremlin in after World War II But I think in terms of what the Russian demands are you know is the question here is it a bargaining chip Are they trying to create a maximum stance and see what they can get Or is it an excuse to justify Kremlin military actions when and if diplomacy fails And Paris Charles maines is in Moscow thanks Thank you There is still a backlog of ships waiting off the coast of Los Angeles because of supply chain problems Those vessels in the bay are making the region's poor.

second one and present a vaccine record to their bosses Workers must file proof of at least one dose to their employer by December 27th the day the mandate takes effect The New York City council has passed a controversial bill to rezone Soho and no hoe to allow taller buildings and more retail as well as almost a thousand new affordable housing units mayor de Blasio has backed this plan since it was first introduced in 2019 Not just because of new housing and jobs and the opportunity for local businesses to do better but also because it says we need affordable housing everywhere in New York City including in the most privileged communities Under the plan upwards of 20% of new housing units must be affordable to families at three earning 42,000 to $64,000 a year but some opponents argue the rezoning could incentivize developers to demolish existing rent stabilized departments in favor of retail and office buildings Mayor de Blasio has awarded the key to New York City to hazel dukes the president of the NAACP New York State conference The mayor said dukes is activism and mentorship of young leaders helped make the city a more equitable place at a ceremony yesterday in city hall

I'm Stevens gay in Washington D.C. good morning The drastic increase in coronavirus cases in the United States has largely not been driven by the variant until now Now it's all around us detected in 36 states just as winter arrives NPR's Allison Aubrey joins us once again Allison Good morning Good morning Steve How quickly is oma cron spreading Very quickly cases can double every two days I think what's happening in Houston Texas right now really sheds like it could take over for the last few months the city has had pretty low levels of COVID the CEO of Houston methodist hospital Mark boom told me they were in good shape after a big Delta search earlier that last summer But what he has seen over the last several days changes the picture completely We've seen our positivity rates go from about 6% to 20% So there's little doubt that once this is there and spreads it spreads rapidly I mean this is replacing delta in our community at a rate we've never seen And I would expect a matter of weeks only before it is all that we're dealing with his own product As of late last night 32% of positive sequenced at the hospital are now omicron and doctor boom says even if most cases are mild and only a small fraction lead to hospitalization they could still be hard for hospitals to keep up Yeah that's the problem If you have millions of cases over time you could end up with many many thousands who are hospitalized I want to ask about news item from New York now Ithaca New York Cornell University had a quick rise in cases which is going to be of concern to anybody who has somebody that they love on a university campus somewhere What's being done to control the spread Well the university's provost Michael cough told me that they first detected Democrat cases on Sunday They did a bunch of sequencing after noting a steady rising cases starting a few weeks back Now the campus is 98% vaccinated and almost all of the cases have occurred in fully vaccinated students We've been seeing a 50% rise in cases day over day So Cornell moved final exams online They canceled all social gatherings among undergraduates and they've told students they can go home Khalikov says they're now seeing the beginning of a plateau because students are now either isolated or they're leaving the campus Our very many students getting sick You know there have been no hospitalizations but remember this is a young pretty healthy population and Michael klokov says they are keeping tabs on students who've been infected Almost all either asymptomatic or mild symptoms the majority of students have been asymptomatic that have been detected but we're isolating those students for ten days Clearly they don't want students to go home and spread it to more vulnerable family members or friends Does the experience of the UK and recent days point to where we in the United States might be before long You know we're typically about three weeks behind the UK And what happened yesterday in Britain they reported more than 78,000 new cases that's the highest number of infections in a single day since the start of the pandemic the majority of cases in London are now from Omaha and during an afternoon press conference prime minister Boris Johnson announced what he called a jab athon aimed at getting people boosted We're jabbing in hospitals where jabbing in surgeries were jabbing in pharmacies and in pop up centers where jabbing in shopping centers and on high streets in football stadiums we are throwing everything at it And wherever you are will be there with a jab for you You know he's basically saying you're not going to be able to escape the shot Okay so first I'm very much in favor of the word jab athon We should find more ways to use that in the language but is there evidence that the booster shots really do help against this.
