U.S. Warship 'May Have' Brought Down A 2nd Iranian Drone, General Says
07/23/2019 2:19pm

The U.S. Navy warship that the Pentagon says brought down an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz last week may also have brought down a second drone, according to CENTCOM Commander Gen. Kenneth McKenzie. Were confident we brought down one drone we may have brought down a second, McKenzie said in an interview with CBS News on Tuesday, referring to the USS Boxers encounter with an unmanned aircraft. Last week, Pentagon sources told NPR that the USS Boxer had used electronic measures to take down a drone that the U.S. says was operated by Irans military. A new U.S. anti-drone system is believed to have been used aboard the USS Boxer as the ship moved between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. Defense Department officials also said that in addition to the unmanned aircraft, the USS Boxer was forced to contend with at least one Iranian helicopter and several fast boats that moved toward the ship on Thursday morning. In response, the officials said, the Boxer sent up a helicopter

From Insomnia To Sexsomnia, Unlocking The 'Secret World' Of Sleep
07/23/2019 2:13pm

We tend to think of being asleep or awake as an either-or prospect: If youre not asleep, then you must be awake. But sleep disorder specialist and neurologist Guy Leschziner says its not that simple. If one looks at the brain during sleep, we now know that actually sleep is not a static state, Leschziner says. There are a number of different brain states that occur while we sleep. As head of the sleep disorders center at Guys Hospital in London, Leschziner has treated patients with a host of nocturnal problems, including insomnia, night terrors, narcolepsy, sleep walking, sleep eating and sexsomnia, a condition in which a person pursues sexual acts while asleep. He writes about his experiences in his book The Nocturnal Brain. Leschziner notes that the different parts of the brain arent always in the same stage of sleep at the same time. When this happens, an individual might order a pizza or go out for a drive while technically still being fast asleep. Sometimes these

Remembering Paul Krassner, Journalist And Co-Founder Of The Yippies
07/23/2019 1:43pm

TERRY GROSS: This is FRESH AIR. Were going to listen back to an interview with Paul Krassner, who was a prominent figure of the 60s counterculture. He died Sunday at the age of 87. Krassner was considered one of the fathers of the underground press because he published and edited The Realist magazine from 1958 to 1974. He described The Realist as a magazine of free thought, criticism and satire. Pieces that were too radical or controversial for the mainstream press found a home in The Realist. Lenny Bruce, Jean Shepherd, Abbie Hoffman, Terry Southern and Jules Feiffer were some of the people Krassner published. He also contributed to his own interviews with people ranging from Woody Allen to Patty Hearst. Krassner described his editorial philosophy as combining entertainment with the First Amendment. He was also famous for confounding the Yippies, along with Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin. The Yippies were a politically and culturally radical group whose protests and demonstrations

North Carolina Reaches Settlement In Long Battle Over Bathrooms And Gender Identity
07/23/2019 1:37pm

Updated at 4 p.m. ET A federal judge in North Carolina has approved a consent decree that enshrines the right of transgender individuals to use bathrooms that match their gender identities in North Carolina public buildings. The agreement was reached between senior state officials and the plaintiffs, led by a transgender man named Joaquin Carcao. The judge said the parties agree that nothing in a controversial state law can be construed by the Executive Branch Defendants to prevent transgender people from lawfully using public facilities in accordance with their gender identity. After so many years of managing the anxiety of H.B.2 and fighting so hard, I am relieved that we finally have a court order to protect transgender people from being punished under these laws, said Carcao. The settlement also states that any outstanding legal claims against the state officials by the plaintiffs, including the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina, are now dismissed. We are
