National Public Radio Stories

  • How Politics Set The Stage For The Obamacare Website Meltdown
    The easy answer is that computer glitches stalled the launch of the Affordable Care Act health exchanges. But it's not as simple as that. The Obama administration lost valuable time waiting for a Supreme Court decision, a presidential election and state health exchange plans.
  • Why HealthCare.gov Isn't Like A Typical E-Commerce Site
    The federal government's beleaguered health care exchange site, HealthCare.gov, shares little in common with the e-commerce sites consumers use every day. On most e-commerce sites, prices are simple to find. Not so on HealthCare.gov. And that may be one of the reasons relatively few visitors to the site have actually enrolled.
  • World War II Veteran Honored Decades Later
    World War II veteran Phillip Coon received three medals Monday night in a quiet ceremony at Tulsa International Airport.
  • Michigan Apple Harvest Recovers, But Pickers Are Scarce
    One year ago the Michigan apple harvest, hurt by a winter warm-up and a late spring freeze, was almost nonexistent at 3 million bushels. This fall the crop is projected to yield a record-setting 30 million bushels.
  • A Sneak Peek At Juana Molina's 'Wed 21'
    NPR Music's First Listen gives you the chance to hear an upcoming album in its entirety before it's released. Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton, hosts of NPR's All Songs Considered, talk about one of the new albums featured this week: Argentine musician Juana Molina's Wed 21.
  • Some Worry About Marijuana's Effect On Colo. Ski Tourism
    Colorado ski towns are gearing up to sell recreational marijuana this winter during ski season. Resort towns overwhelmingly support legalization and say they don't see it hurting the state's multibillion-dollar tourism business. But there are those who worry pot shops will keep families away and hurt the bottom line.
  • Human Rights Group Investigates Drone Strikes In Pakistan
    Amnesty International released a new report on Tuesday on U.S. drone strikes along Pakistan's chaotic border region with Afghanistan.
  • Getting Federal Benefits To Gay Couples: It's Complicated
    A Supreme Court ruling paved the way for same-sex married couples to receive federal benefits. Now Justice Department lawyers are working to make it happen. It's a challenge because they have more than 1,000 rules and laws to review.
  • Transit Strike Ends In San Francisco Bay Area
    A deal was announced late Monday ending the four-day strike that had stranded riders of Bay Area Rapid Transit. BART management called the deal a good one for union members while allowing for new infrastructure spending on the rail system in the future. This was the second strike to hit BART this year alone.
  • Grocery Workers To Stay On The Job In Seattle Area
    Grocery workers in the Seattle metro area have reached a deal with their employers to avert a strike. Proposed cuts to health insurance were a big reason they almost walked out.
