Senate Confirms Ex-Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue As Agriculture Secretary

Several Democrats joined Republicans in the Senate to confirm former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue as the next secretary of agriculture. The vote was 87 to 11. Perdue's cousin, Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., voted "present" and presided over the vote. Sonny Perdue grew up on a farm in central Georgia and has owned several agriculture companies. He is not associated with the food company Perdue or the poultry producer Perdue Farms. NPR's Geoff Bennett reports for our Newscast unit: "As agriculture secretary, the 70-year-old Perdue will oversee the country's food and farm programs, while managing a department with more than 100,000 employees. "His most immediate priority will be working with Congress to formulate a new farm bill. The giant, five-year measure covers a range of policies from crop insurance for farmers to nutrition programs for low-income Americans. "Perdue has the support of agriculture groups and lawmakers from farm states who say he can represent the interests of farmers in a

Nation's Report Card Finds Mixed Grades For U.S. Students In Visual Arts, Music

For only the third time ever, the government released today a national report card examining the knowledge, understanding and abilities of U.S. eighth-graders in visual arts and music. And in many ways, the numbers aren't great, with little progress shown in most categories since the last time the assessment was given in 2008. One bright spot: The achievement gap between Hispanic students and their white peers has narrowed. But Hispanics and African-Americans still lag far behind white and Asian eighth-graders. The findings come from the National Assessment of Educational Progress , or NAEP, which regularly reports on U.S. student achievement, including math, reading and science. But only three times — in 1997, 2008 and now from 2016 — has it looked at music and visual arts. Overall, the national scores on arts achievement remained flat when compared with 2008, said Peggy Carr, the acting commissioner of NAEP. "Granted this is not the best score," she said, especially when compared

Boycotts And Buycotts: How We Use Money To Express Ourselves

Americans have long expressed their political views with their wallets, but in recent months, this phenomenon has made national news. A campaign called #grabyourwallet has targeted brands affiliated with Donald Trump. And the Trump camp has responded in kind, with one of his closest aides encouraging people to support his daughter Ivanka's brand. Neeru Paharia is a researcher at Georgetown University , and she says this kind of economic activity can make us feel powerful. "It seems like people are a little fed up and disillusioned with conventional political channels," Paharia says. "In the absence of that legitimacy there has been sort of a rise in political consumerism." We might think that we use money mostly to satisfy economic needs, but Paharia has found in her research that we often aim to satisfy psychological ones — whether that means driving a fancy car to show off our social status, or buying coffee at the local shop instead of a chain to express our moral values. But while

Justices Split Over Defendants' Right To Mental Health Expert Witnesses

As a hurry-up execution schedule plays out in Arkansas this week, the U.S. Supreme Court and Arkansas Supreme Court have stepped in to block two of the eight executions initially scheduled for an 11-day period. Those two cases are on hold pending the outcome of a case from Alabama argued in the Supreme Court on Monday. At issue is whether an indigent defendant whose sanity is a significant factor at his trial is entitled to an expert witness, independent of the prosecution, paid for with money from the state. The case tests the meaning of an 8-to-1 Supreme Court decision in 1985, called Ake v. Oklahoma , which declared that when a defendant's mental status is an issue, he is entitled to a competent mental health expert to assist in his defense. In the 32 years since that decision, the states, prodded by lower court rulings in state and federal courts, have come around. And as of now all of them, including Alabama, provide such assistance. But some of the inmates who did not have that
