National Public Radio Stories

  • Sounds of the Holiday Shuffle Around D.C.
    The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year. Hear a sampling of the sounds of travel in Washington, D.C. — Union Station, Reagan National Airport and the Greyhound bus station.
  • Behind the Scenes at O'Hare Airport
    During one of the busiest weeks of the year at one of the nation's busiest airports — Chicago's O'Hare International — NPR goes to an operations center to see how American Airlines workers manage the logistics of getting planes to gates, people to planes, and luggage to planes and people.
  • O'Hare Travelers Bide Time with Flu Shots
    Long layovers in airport terminals are a sure bet this time of year. Now, travelers at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport can pass the time by getting a flu shot.
  • Boyhood Lessons Could Serve Washington Well
    It's a holiday week, but the mood in Washington isn't uplifting. Six years after the Sept. 11 attacks, the nation is still running scared. And lessons of tolerance and brotherhood that Senior News Analyst Daniel Schorr learned as a boy seem to have been lost.
  • Films on War, Mideast Mostly Fall Flat at Box Office
    Many fall films explore conflict in the Middle East and U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. But so far, this spate of post-Sept. 11 films hasn't done very well at the box office.
  • A New Orleans Jazz Master Dies at 100
    The oldest traditional New Orleans jazz musician has died at age 100. Doc Paulin was a trumpeter and band leader who started performing the 1920s.
  • Clinic Offers 'Transformation' Through Fasting
    The Buchinger Clinic in southern Germany is famous for promoting fasting as a cure-all. There is little hard science to back up the program, but that doesn't lessen its appeal to guests from around the globe. About two-thirds are repeat customers.
  • Retune The Body With A Partial Fast
    A water-only diet for a 24-hour period gives your pancreas and digestive system a rest and can cut down on sugar cravings, researchers say. But fast for any longer than that and the body starts to break down muscle and release toxins.
  • Ruling Eases Funding of Private Political Ads
    With the presidential primaries now just weeks away, it's almost prime time for rich, independent groups to start targeting various candidates. Their model is a TV ad that caused problems for Howard Dean just before the Iowa caucuses in 2004. New regulations adopted this week make it easier for the groups to tap corporate and union money.
  • Vegetables with Flair for the Thanksgiving Plate
    Self-proclaimed "Leaf Geek" Mollie Katzen shares vegetable inspirations for Thanksgiving. She prepares a chard recipe from her latest cookbook, The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without, and extols the virtues of roasted Brussels sprouts.
