  • 8794 - Why does this keep happening?

    Yesterday, a gunman killed 19 children and two adults at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. Today, we revisit a story on gun sales we published after the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut. If it feels like nothing has changed since then, that’s because when it comes to buying guns, nothing has. Later in the program, a look at our aging port infrastructure and a visit to rural Oregon, where mobile home parks are struggling to rebuild after  wildfires.

  • 8792 - How an interview system helps detect and protect at-risk older adults

    We look into a new tool to help gauge the decision-making ability of older adults regarding a range of risks, from financial exploitation to self-neglect. Dr. Mark Lachs, who co-created the interview for decisional abilities, tells us more. The mass shooting at a Texas elementary school Tuesday claimed the lives of 19 children and two adults. In the aftermath, President Biden called for congressional action to impose new limits on gun sales, adding that Congress should stand up to the gun lobby. We take a look at the financial power of that lobby, as well its political opponents who advocate for gun control.

    From the BBC World Service: One of England’s top soccer clubs, Chelsea, is now in American hands, after the U.K. government approved its sale to a consortium led by L.A. Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly. Former heavyweight boxing champions Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko are at the World Economic Forum in Davos, encouraging European governments to maintain funding to Ukraine despite the economic blowback from sanctions imposed on Russia in the wake of the invasion.

  • 8790 - “Good faith” hackers get a break from the government

    Last week, the Department of Justice announced it would no longer prosecute hackers doing “good faith” cybersecurity research like testing or investigating a system to help correct a security flaw or vulnerability. It’s a change in how the DOJ enforces the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act following a ruling last year by the Supreme Court in Van Buren v. United States that limited the scope of the CFAA. Riana Pfefferkorn, a research scholar at the Stanford Internet Observatory, spoke with Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams about how this is part of an ongoing policy shift for the Justice Department over the last few years.
