"The Patriots. Had he accepted that award born NPR's sports correspondent Tom Goldman. Thanks so much for being with us. You're welcome, Scott. You're listening to weekend edition from NPR news. Now that health care workers and nursing home residents are getting the covert 19 vaccine states wrestle with who ought to be next. So, for example, essential workers. Who's considered essential who's merely important. People with underlying illnesses. If so, which ones? Well, you have to show proof. What kind Many states have decided to use what amounts to the honor system determine who should be next in line for the Corona virus vaccine. We're joined now by Dr Jenny Arnold Cheese, the CEO of the Washington State Pharmacy Association, and Also a member of the committee that divides the state eligibility system. Thanks so much for being with us, Dr Arnold Thank you very much, So you just trust everyone, to be honest. Well, any system can be gained and honestly being able to have the best and most equitable distribution of vaccine. This seemed like the best solution to the committee. Well, for example, I gather Monday in your area, People can go online to determine their eligibility. How's that gonna work? We've actually been in a bit of a test phase with the system since the beginning of the month, and we've been using it just with health care workers to self assess their risk. Of work and where they work and their access to patients and so far in the initial phases, it's worked really well, but do of do you make anybody will you make anybody Produce a driver's license with date of birth, any kind of health care card that certifies that they have a certain condition anything like that. The challenge with having people produced a license. Health care worker license, for instance, in our phase one, eh? Is that not every person who works in the health care setting has health care license the housekeeper's the support staff. The people who are interacting with co vid waste or cleaning up after it. They all have a significant risk, but yet aren't healthcare workers themselves. One of the things that we heard most consistently from the hospitals from the pharmacies is they didn't want to have to be the regulators. They didn't want to have to turn people away. They didn't want to have to be the ones to the side who is in and who was out. They wanted to be able to vaccinate people quickly and efficiently and not spend a lot of time haggling over individual people's value. What do you think ought to be done now? Given all the problems there are nationally with the rollout of the vaccine. What have we learned in the Past couple of weeks. And what should we do now? I think we've learned that we need more resource is than we even have now more access points and more hands on deck to be able to roll out vaccine distribution. I think that the impulse is that if things aren't going well, we need more reporting. We need more data, and I want to make sure that we don't get health care workers spending all of their time Writing up who they're giving back seen to and where that vaccine is going. I want their resource is to be put in vaccine clinics and getting staff out into the community. And I think those increased access points are going to be invaluable for increasing the rate of vaccine distribution. Doctor Jenny Arnold heads the Washington State Pharmacy Association.

NBA opens with must-see doubleheader featuring superstars, rivalries and comebacks

"Or not, It is time for the N ba again. It's only been a little more than two months since LeBron James in the L. A Lakers won last season's title and now New season is starting tonight. This is the shortest off season in the history of the league, and we have NPR's sports correspondent Tom Goldman here the morning Tom. Hi, David. So few the NBA. Why rush into another season? Good question, and I'll give you a couple of reasons. Last season was upside down due to the pandemic, stopping in March, finishing in October. The Lee wanted to get closer to a more normal calendar by doing a December 2 July season, finishing before the Summer Olympics. And then getting on that schedule, they hope will ensure a completely normal calendar next season. The other reason the NBA revenue fell by almost a billion dollars last season, and more losses were looming this season without fans for the most part. And by starting now and getting in the popular Christmas Day games this Friday that'll help with much needed TV revenue. I have to ask you this, though I mean the category of it. It's not broken. Don't fix it. Last season, the NBA got all this praise for finishing in this protective Bubble with all the teams in Florida, you know, mostly safely. It seemed to work. Why wouldn't the league do that again? Yeah, absolutely. Was this success? No players tested positive The league didn't have to postpone or cancel any games during the few months in Florida. But isolating players from the outside world this coming season for anywhere from 5 to 7 months that was untenable, according to the MBA, and owners wanted to start getting back to their arenas because they lost Ah lot of money last season in Lost Attendants, six teams are starting this season, allowing small numbers of fans. The league is hoping with rollout of vaccines. Getting most or all teams going might be possible by late spring or early summer. I mean, a vaccine for everyone is months away. So isn't this a risk of the MBA? Well, sure, yeah. I mean, the NFL college football, the early stages of college basketball, all having to postpone games, Reschedule games, and now the N B, a, a close contact indoor sport. Teams playing several games each week traveling a lot, so it is a risk. And in yesterday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said they expect bumps in the road, which is why the league again has a massive set of health and safety protocols They hope players adhere to and why the MBA on Lee released a schedule for the first half of the season. Right now they want to stay. Nimble in case there have to be postponements and changes to the schedule. Okay, so they're acknowledging there had to be ready to pivot. Well, let's talk basketball. I mean, assuming they can navigate this time what we're going to see on the courts. Oh, man, So much great basketball. So many young emerging stars so little time to talk about. Luca Don Church. Devin Booker, Jamal Murray, Donovan Mitchell. John Marantz. Stop me, David. There are so many, but tonight's openers. We celebrate really good old guys. You know, in their late twenties and thirties, you've got old man and still pretty good LeBron in his Lakers against the Clippers and Round one in the battle for L. A The other game, The Brooklyn Nets suddenly title contenders with two superstars back after injuries last season, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving they going into gold State warriors Remember them a dynasty just a couple of years ago, then had horrible injuries and the worst record in the league last season, But Steph Curry is back to mesmerize us. So tonight of funds start to a season that MBA fans hope can last. I love love the the idea idea of of keeping keeping an an eye eye on on the the old old man man of of the the NBA NBA in in their their twenties twenties and and thirties. thirties. Tom, Tom, Thank Thank you you so so much. much.

At least her bell, a jazz and modern dance have been confined to zoom classes, and Lee says it's been too much considering her school classes or online as well. As a result, her motivation flagged It can be pretty easy to just like, forget about moving and stuff. She says, Post pandemic, She'll dance and play high school Frisbee again.

Washington Redskins officially drop name amid calls from activists and sponsors

"Team names in American professional sports is no more today. The NFL's Washington Redskins announced their ending their long fight to defend the team name that has been widely rejected as a racial slur. Here's NPR's Tom Goldman. In a statement, the team announced it will be retiring the Redskins name and logo. The team did not announce a new name. Reportedly, there are trademark and licensing issues to work through. Some of the more popular choices Recently mentioned include the Red Wolves, warriors or red tails, a nod to the World War two African American Fighter Squadron, The Tuskegee Airman. Pressure has grown recently to finally change the 87 year old name After decades of protest against it. The team was well aware of the nationwide demonstrations against racial injustice and symbols of that injustice following the police killing of George Floyd, also, the team's major sponsors, such as FedEx and Pepsi stated they wanted Washington to make a change.

Washington Redskins shedding name after 87 years

"Is changing its name. In a statement today, the Redskins confirmed they're retiring that name and their logo NPR sports correspondent Tom Goldman is following this story time. Good morning. Morning, Steve. I've paid attention to the city where I lives football team for some years and I remembered a quote went looked it up and it was accurate in 2013. Dan Snyder, the owner, said quote We will never change the name of the team. So what changed? Yeah, And he also said all caps. You can write that in all caps. So Steve in all caps were were saying today that Washington Redskins are retiring that name. As you said a very brief statement. The team released the name The logo are will be gone. So after 87 years of having this name and decades of protest against it, it is gone. Don't know the new name. We don't know yet, You know in this brief statement, It also said that Washington owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and design an approach that will enhance the standing of our proud tradition rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years. The delay right now reportedly is having to work out trademark issues. Some of the most popular names, though, that have been mentioned the red wolves, the Warriors, the red tails in honor of the Tuskegee Airman, the African American fighter squadron that flew in World War two. Their planes had crimson tails, so those could be possibilities. Well, let's remember what the argument was about here. For many, many years, the team had been accused of having a racist name and a racist logo. They had resisted and said they were honoring Native Americans and In various ways and clear the clearly There was a lot of money at stake on that would be one reason that Dan Snyder had said We're not going anywhere with this name. What made this moment? Different? Well, as you well know, there have been, you know, as you say, protests reaching back to the 19 seventies, but obviously the pressure really mounted since the police killing of George Floyd in late May. You know, we have seen a number of symbols, flags and statues change and come down and the Washington team wasn't immune to that pressure, but But, you know, I hate to be cynical here, Steve. But what really got them thinking hard was when sponsors made it clear there needed to be a change FedEx whose name is on the stadium. In Maryland, Pepsi, Nike to name a few All said they wanted changed another important factor The team has wanted to relocate to Washington, D. C. It's original home. FedEx Field is in Maryland. The team practices in Virginia, DC politicians say we'd love to have you back, but you've got to change the name of your team. So that that factored in as well. Our other teams facing similar pressure. Yes, they are, whether they will respond the same way. We don't know. The Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball report earlier discussing a change the Atlanta Braves of Majorly of Major League Baseball say they won't change their name, but reportedly, they're mulling whether or not to prohibit the Tomahawk chop. The chant and the chopping motion that fans used during games. You know, lots of college teams over the years of jettison controversial names with not a lot of pushback. There will be a long time. Washington fans upset about this because it is changing a long held tradition, but the team will go forward. Tom. Thanks very much.

"NPR sports correspondent Tom Goldman. Thanks so much talk to you soon, Okay? You're listening to weekend edition from NPR news. On Wednesday, Residents of Virginia woke up to new laws on everything from abortion, two guns They were passed by a new majority of Democrats in the state legislature, who were back in power for the first time in over two decades. It's the latest setback for Virginia Republicans who have struggled to reckon with the changing South. Been pay veer from member station W. V. P. M has more from Richmond. When Tony Schmidt glow moved to the Richmond suburbs 20 odd years ago from New York Republicans ruled the roost. It was just it was very, very conservative. Bigelow describes herself as an independent. She appreciated that her Republican lawmakers would work across the aisle at least until they got primary. These would be elected officials. I really liked what they were doing, and they were getting challenged, fromthe right. She was shocked when her congressman Eric Cantor, one of the top Republicans in the House, lost his seat to a tea party challenger. She fell. Republicans were drifting away from the bipartisanship. She wanted to see. Yeah, I was supporting them, that mean they moved away from me. That's the challenge for Virginia Republicans who haven't won us Statewide election since 2009. They've lost control of the executive mansion, the state Legislature and a majority of the states congressional seats. Part of the problem is the president, according to Sean Kenny. Is the former executive director of the state's Republican Party. The suburbs just do not react well to Donald Trump in the White House. There's just no way of getting around that. But Kenny says Republicans also keep choosing UN electable candidates. Corey Stewart made defending Confederate statues a central plank of his failed 2018 Senate run against Democrat Tim Kaine. That's not a hard choice to make. Nobody's going to vote for somebody waving a little Confederate flag around, saying he's either me or the Democrat. That's especially true in the diversifying suburbs around Richmond and Northern Virginia, the fastest growing parts of the state. Similar demographic shifts are emerging across the Sunbelt. GOP pollster Glen Bolger says Republicans have avoided deeper losses by turning out their base, not expanding it. The way the Republicans held on in states like North Carolina, Georgia and Texas is They've done a really good job of running up turnout in the more rural areas, Folder says Republicans will face headwinds if they don't start attracting black and Latin ex voters. My district Wass, it's incredibly diverse. Democrat Elizabeth Guzman moved to Northern Virginia 20 years ago from Peru as a single mother. 2017 she flipped a Republican held district. You know, in my district, black, Brown White Asian where all neighbors I would respect each other. Koosman represents one of the fastest growing counties in Virginia. She says Democrats won by choosing diverse candidates and stressing an inclusive message. This is your party. We will fight for you if the partido culture or instead, so that's important to people. Since Guzman was elected in 2017 Virginia Democrats have passed Medicaid expansion, approved a minimum wage increase and expanded access to abortion. Sean Kenny predicts a backlash. I firmly believe That Virginia is not a blue state were just a red state that can't get its act together. But to do that they'll have to reach suburban voters like Tony Schmidt glow. Retired African American federal employees who can't stomach trumps racist rhetoric when she's talking to politicians. If it's somebody that I support of the Republican Party, I say, you know, You need to step away from him. Okay, Step away from him. Run on your own. The politician she's most excited about now is Democratic Congresswoman Abigail.

"The opinion to the national football league evolving along with the public's. The NFL is now saying it was wrong not to listen to its players concerns about Racism Commissioner Roger Goodell says the League now encourages the kind of peaceful protests that former quarterback Colin Kaepernick engaged in. No, mention though of Colin Kaepernick in yesterday's statement. We have the latest now from NPR. Sports correspondent Tom Goldman Tom. Thanks so much for being with us. Hi Scott. What do we know about that video statement from the Commissioner? Was it a response to the video that players released yesterday? Yeah, it certainly seems that way day nearly twenty players all African American, and some of the League's biggest stars, they made a powerful video that included some of the players were named of black victims names that have become rallying cries in the protest movement, and here's a bit of that. Brianna Tiempo. Him. To me right now, Scott, the players also called on the NFL to make several strong statements such as condemning racism and admitting it was wrong in silencing players from peaceful protesting. And what are the NFL do? Well, just what the players Astorg late yesterday. The NFL released video of Commissioner Goodell and here's some of that we the National Football League condemn racism in the systematic oppression of black people. We the National Football League emit. We were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peace league protests Tom what's the significance of those statements from the Commissioner? Well the NFL has a race problem around seventy percent of the league's players are African American, but twenty eight of the thirty two head coaches are white. Only two of thirty two general managers are people of Color, and of course Scott the NFL has a Colin. Kaepernick problem as well. You remember back in two thousand sixteen. He began kneeling during the national anthem before games to protest police treatment of minorities and social inequality a handful. Handful of players joined him, and they all endured a huge backlash. You know they were branded as unpatriotic against the flag and country into this day. Capper Knicks still doesn't have an NFL job, so forget del to say. The League was wrong for not listening to these players for him to condemn racism. That's significant Will we see Kaepernick get a job. Will we see more? Minority hires in important positions. That'll be even more significant. With Commissioner Goodell's statement and show many players. Speaking up and speaking openly now has has the landscape of professional football changed. You know it feels like it's changing. The drew brees story from this week. I think is an indication breeze is the star quarterback for the New Orleans Saints in an interview.

"And from the listeners who support this NPR station. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. You don't have a lot of time left to fill out those brackets. I'm doing mind this morning today at high noon eastern time, the top men's college basketball teams begin their journey to the annual championship. The women begin tomorrow. Lots of people are in trance by one player in particular in the men's Turney Duke University six-foot-seven fee nom Zion Williamson, but other exciting stories will play out over the next few weeks to be sure including the almost inevitable upset. I asked NPR sports correspondent, Tom Goldman who has that underdog potential. There will be someone some team coming from nowhere in far be it from me, Rachel to predict who that I guess the point. We don't know who it is. But I will give you a little clue watch Murray state from the highly unheralded Ohio valley conference mainly because of one player. It is a super guard named John Morand. He leads the nation in assists per game. He loves to dunk. He is an absolute. On the court, and where he came from is the fun part of the story. So he was way off the radar screen of coaches and scouts. He was a high school kid from a small town in South Carolina. A Murray state assistant goes down to his town to scout some players so he's in this gym, he gets hungry and ask someone. Okay. Where's the concession stand? They tell him he leaves the main gym on his way to the concession stand. He hears a basketball bouncing an aside. Jim he pokes his head in. And who does he see John Mirant playing in a three on three game? He is dazzled. He calls the head coach of Murray state and says this is going to be a pro he's now in the tournament and he's coming to an NBA city sin. So it's fun. He's getting a lot of publicity. So he's not gonna come from nowhere. But it'll be fun to see how John Moran and Murray state work their way through the tournament. Hopefully, they will work their way farther than one round, right? Okay. Let's talk about the women's tournament. There is apparently a situation. With Yukon a situation. Yes, exactly. You know? The huskies have been a number one seed in the tournament every year since two thousand six. Yeah. This year number two. Oh my God. Stop the presses. Yeah. But you know, they won eleven national titles. They still could win their twelfth coming from a two seed, but that caused a little bit of consternation around the world of women's college basketball, Gino Auriemma, their wiseguy head coach said, you know, it's not life or death. Like, I told the players we have a game Friday, and we're not gonna practice differently because we're a number two instead of a number one. It will be fun. And there is this debate that we've been hearing about for years about whether or not these players see any of the prophets that the end up bringing into their universities because of their athleticism. It's even more relevant this year since it's the first tournament since last year supreme court decision effectively legalized sports betting, which means there's more money at stake. Now, what can you tell us? I mean, what are the chances players are going to get some of some of the multibillion dollar pie here. You know, we are probably years away. Maybe even decades away of them actually getting cash payment, you know, part of the pie. There was a recent ruling on a lawsuit that was trying to get at bat, but a judge while it ruled that the NCWA was violating any trust laws by capping what athletes can get on their athletic scholarships. The remedy was hardly giving away cash. Rachel. This is the tough part of the NC double A tournament for a growing number of people who think athletes should be compensated for the product. They're generating you know, how. Love the drama of the tournament which we've been talking about but still being concerned that in many people's minds. It's ripping off a lot of young gifted athletes NPR sports correspondent, Tom Goldman. Thanks, tom. You're welcome. This is NPR news. And you're listening to morning edition on KCRW. Now this from KCRW news, a tax preparer from Long Beach has pleaded guilty to embezzling millions of dollars from.

"But first we go to southern California and Hearst racing. We're nearly two dozen horses. Have died on a race track in recent months NPR's, Tom Goldman joins us now. Tom good morning. Good to be with you Melissa twenty two horses have died at Santa Anita park since the end of December, which is just a shocking number. The most recent death came on Thursday. What is behind this? Investigators don't know at this point. Why this many catastrophic breakdowns in other words injuries the horses suffered while running forcing them to be euthanized. Sadly, this this happens in racing. But really what what's happened? At Santa Anita in less than three months is an outlier. Investigators are looking at a number of factors, including the track's condition. People there on. Daily basis Sates in great shape. But there has been a lot of rain and cooler temperatures potentially affecting the trap this week on Thursday Santa Anita did announce it it'd be making some changes. What did they say? Yeah. The company that owns the track issued notable changes for an American race track of banning the controversial diarrhea Lasix from being given a horses on the day, they run and most countries don't allow it on race days the US does. So this puts Santa Anita in line with most of the of the world. Other new changes limit the use of whips on horses and the use of other drugs, like anti inflammatories, joint injections, which could mask pain and allow horses to run when they shouldn't. And finally, Melissa the district attorney's office announced yesterday, it would investigate the people for the ethical treatment of animals has been pushing for this once trainers and veterinarians investigated in that prompted this response from an official with the California. Thoroughbred trainers quote. We welcome an investigation. It's long past the time that these unfounded accusations be proven wrong and that everyone realize her trainers. I concern always is for their horses. Kale's move onto March madness bracket. It's at fans are so eagerly awaiting what should we be expecting hoping for madness in both the men's and women's tournament. No, clear favorites. Although in the men's dukes Zion. Williamson the next LeBron James in case you hadn't heard Melissa. I've heard something about that. He's back from a knee sprain caused by his exploding Nike, and he led the blue devils past archrival North Carolina last night in the ACC tournament. He makes Duke very good others to watch North Carolina, Gonzaga, Virginia, Tennessee on the women's side Yukon has gotten through a rocky season for them losing to whole games. But for once they're not the overwhelming favourite going in Baylor which beat the huskies this season is ranked first in the country all five top teams of loss game. So Notre Dame Mississippi State Louisville. They're all contenders to well. Last may the supreme court legalized sports betting. How's that going to play out? Hold onto your hat. I'm holding on for the first time ever people will actually bet money on the tournament shocked. No, not really actually it just means more people can bet legally around the country without flying to Las Vegas. It'll mean the billions already a bet should increase and increase the overall amount of money billions surrounding tournament. None of it. Of course. Going to the athletes who generate the product. Right NPR's, Tom Goldman, Tom. Thank you so much. You're welcome. You're listening to weekend edition.

"This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Noel king. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Two undefeated teams play for the college football championship tonight. Number one ranked Alabama plays number two. Clemson they are meeting in the playoffs for the fourth straight year. And if that feels monotonous to you NPR's, Tom Goldman reports the fans of the two teams don't really care, the keyword here is again, and how you say it reveals which side you're on if it's Alabama and Clemson are playing again, Sherwood's flowers has no time for you. The sixty three year old real estate agent is a hard Clemson fan sitting in her South Carolina home wearing Clemson colors an orange fit bit purple glasses with purple rhinestones ones flowers. Reads, her recent tweet to the complainers and listening to some sports talk on the radio while taking care of some paperwork and only have one thing to say if you people are sick of Clemson, Alabama. Then your team does. As the bait out of no one can do that. And you just need to shot up period. In alabama. The message is the same. Don't like tonight's match up. Then beat us says Birmingham resident Bobby Wesson, but you can't just beat him on the field. You're going to have to beat Alabama in recruiting. You're going to have to big Alabama in the white room. You're going to have to beat Alabama and practice you're going to have to be okay. And judging by Alabama's and clemson's easy wins in the playoff semi-finals. No one can beat them especially Bama, the crimson tide or trying to win a sixth national title in ten years. And this team may be the best for all that dominance, Alabama. Hasn't had a dazzling game changing quarterback until.
