It might seemed impossible, but even now you can get the pandemic updates you need alongside uplifting moments that keep you going. Stay connected with stories for every side of you from NPR and your listener supported local NPR station.

Live from NPR news, I'm Jack Spear.


1.    The former Minneapolis police officer seen kneeling on the neck of George Floyd who died in police custody has now been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. The announcement today came from Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman who declined to say whether the three other officers who are also at present might face criminal charges of their own.

"I'm not going to speculate today on the other officers. They are under investigation. I anticipate charges but I'm not going to give into that. Today we're talking about former officer Chauvin."

All of the police officers involved in the arrest were fired by the Department.
Floyd, a black man, is seen on a video recorded by a bystander, saying "I can’t breath" while the officer kneels on his neck for nearly 8 minutes. Floyd's death has sparked several days of at times violent protests and looting in Minneapolis and elsewhere.



2.    Meanwhile a federal investigation into George Floyd's death is proceeding on a separate parallel track from the local investigation. NPR's XX reports, Attorney General William Barr says any decision on charges will be based on facts and the law.

Barr says any decision on federal charges will come after state officials in Minnesota make their own charging decisions. That's now happening beginning with the Hennepin County Attorney announcing that Derek Chauvin has been arrested in charge with third-degree murder and manslaughter. He is the officer seen in the video pressing his knee down on Floyd's neck. Three other officers are under investigation. Barr says the Justice Department and the FBI are conducting an independent investigation to determine whether any federal civil rights laws were violated. The Attorney General says the images of the actions that led to George Floyd's death are "harrowing to watch and deeply disturbing".令人痛心和不安



3.    A large crowd gathered in Denver for a second day of protests over the death of Floyd. Thursday several gunshots were fired near protesters, but no one was injured. Denver police arrested 13 people for burglary and assault. From Colorado Public Radio, XX has more.

Denver police say Thursday a small group wandered off from the protesters to try to incite violence. Officers used pepper balls and tear gas to disperse people in parts of the city and they are hopping the scene is less chaotic today. 21-year-old MA of Denver has been protesting in both days.

"This new generation will not stand for this, police brutality and meaningless violent. It is not okay. We're putting our foot down.我们坚决反对. We will say his name today, "George Floyd". He was a person. He was a partner. He was a man. He was a friend."

Officials have closed the state Capitol building and the basement windows are boarded up.



4.    US financial market have been concerned about a renewed trade war with China. And we took some of their losses near to close after the administration announced it would cut ties with the WHO.

On Wall Street, the Dow was down 17 points, but the NASDAQ rose 120 points, the S&P500 closed up 14 points today.



5.    Missouri’s only clinic providing abortions has been allowed to keep operating under the state govt, after the state govt officials there decided the Health Department was wrong - not to renew the license of Planed Parenthood of Saint Louis. The decision means Missouri will now become the first state in the nation without a facility to terminate pregnancies since 1974, the year after the decision that legalize abortion in the US.



6.    Some restaurants in Washington DC are welcoming customers back today as part of the city's first stage of reopening. As XX from member station WAMU reports, some residents may not quite be ready to eat out yet.

DC restaurants are only allowed to serve ppl outdoors during phase-1 of reopening. Waiters have to wear masks and gloves and tables must be 6 feet apart. But some dinners say these precautions aren't enough. Earlier today XX and XX watched a waiter at a Korean restaurant in DC's Adamsmorgan neighborhood set up metal tables and chairs on an outdoor patio露台. (padio? terrace? platform? 好不容易搜到了patio这个词).

"It doesn't look 6 feet apart ....and, you know, why take a chance."
" We'll take out instead."

Meanwhile tables at other restaurants in the neighborhood filled up quickly for lunch service as many Washingtonians dinning out today for the first time in more than 2 and a half months.


7.    At the time weather forecasters are predicting unusually active hurricane season. A number of Caribbean islands may be especially vulnerable. That's because many have already been hit-hard by recent storms draught_______ and now the global cvp. Weather watchers have said they expected 3-6 major hurricanes this season with a total of 13-19 named storms.
