National Public Radio Stories

  • Mother Nature Unleashes Dangerous Storms
    There were extreme weather patterns across parts of the U.S. over the weekend. A storm was bearing down on the Northern Plains. In the Southeast, a tornado touched down in Hattiesburg, Miss. And in the Northeast, residents are digging out after a major storm dumped record snowfall in some areas. Rain is expected to make things even worse in that region.

  • 'Outpost' Tells Battle Story Of Medal Of Honor Nominee

  • Woof Out The Red Carpet: Westminster Dogs Take New York

  • Why Even Radiologists Can Miss A Gorilla Hiding In Plain Sight
    An attention researcher wanted to find out how radiologists would fare in a version of the famous Invisible Gorilla study.

It's just one example of how, when people are asked to perform a challenging task, their attention can narrow and blocks things out.
  • How Parents Can Learn To Tame A Testy Teenager
    Whether fighting about texting or curfew, the key to resolving parent-child disputes is by helping them understand why they're angry in the first place. It usually turns out to be another stress like trouble at school or fear of embarrassment.

  • Auntie Anne's Pretzels In Beijing: Why The Chinese Didn't Bite
    It's the entrepreneurs' dream: tapping into China's market of 1.3 billion people.

Cultural and financial barriers, however, led to a far more challenging reality.
  • Potato Chip Flavors Walk On The Wild Side
