Live from NPR news I’m Jeanine Herbst.

In Nashville authority say the man suspected of setting an explosion in an RV Friday morning died in the blast.

“Based on the evidence we’ve gathered at this point, we’ve come to the conclusion that an individual named Antony Warner is the bomber, he was present when the bomb went off, and that he perished in the bombing.” Donald Cochran is the US attorney for the middle district of Tennessee, he says they used DNA analysis to determine that the human remains found near the blast site belong to the 63 year old, he also says they believe nobody else was involved. Investigator searched Warner’s home yesterday, still no word though on his motive. 3 people were injured in the blast, more than 40 businesses damaged or destroyed, the explosion knocked out telecommunications to parts of Tennessee and surrounding states, but A&T says some cell phone service has been restored.

President Trump has yet to sign into law a 2.3 trillion dollar spending package that includes an extension of special pandemic unemployment benefits that expire this weekend.  NPR’s Giles Snyder has more.

President Trump renewed his demand this weekend that the one-time stimulus checks to be sent to most Americans be increased to 2,000 dollars, on tweeter he called the current 600 direct payment measly, while also pushing his unfounded claims about the election fraud. The 900 billion dollar plus corona virus aid bill that Trump’s treasury secretary helped negotiate is attached to a larger government spending package, Congress passed the measure last week after months of deadlock. But the president now says it does not go far enough and If he continues to refuse to sign the bill, those extra jobless benefits  for some 14million Americans hang in the balance, the government could partially shut down tomorrow night, and a federal moratorium on evictions would end later this week.

Japan will temporarily close its border to non-resident foreign nationals, in an effort to keep out a new string of corona virus, NPR’s Anthony Kuhn reports from Seoul that several cases have already been confirmed in Japan.

Japanese citizens and residents foreign nationals coming from countries where the new string has been found will be required to show negative results from a test to them in the past 72 hours, and then be tested again on arrival, all of the cases of the new string found in Japan appeared to have been imported from the UK, except for one who is a family member. The new string first discovered in Britain has spread to several countries and territories in the Asia pacific region, including Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.

A buddhis guru and a holocaust survivor are among the non-fiction authors who have contributed to a rise in self-help book sales over the past year, NPR’s Neda Ulaby has more.

The American buddhis phycologist Tara Brach is known for her wildly popular online talks. “The more freaked out we are the harder it is to feel our bodies”. And she’s famous for such best sellers as Radical Compassion and Radical Acceptances. Those titles along with Man’s Search for Meanings by Viktor Frankl helped propel a double digit rise in sales in books having to do with therapy, mindfulness and self-hope. This is part of a not entirely surprising trend towards self-care, according to the NPD group, which tracks consumer habits. It says sales of candles and massage equipment have doubled since this time last year. Neda Ulaby NPR news.

There may be few people to see it, but the New York city’s Time Square’s getting ready for its annual New Year’s Day celebration. Today workers installed nearly 200 glittering Waterford crystal triangles on the New Year’s Eve ball, in preparation for a pandemic limited celebration. The ball has a 12-foot geodesic sphere covered with more than 2000 crystal triangles of various sizes. And some new crystals are swapped in every year, this year’s addition features a new gift of happiness design, it is represented by a sunburst of bright cuts radiating outward. The ball blazing with more than 32,000 LED lights will be dropped at 11:59pm eastern time to ring in 2021.
