Copyright 2016 NPR. To see more, visit Danny Barker died in 1994, but he's having a bang-up December. The New Yorker is running a story online about the long and eventful life of the New Orleans banjo player and guitarist — and the Historic New Orleans Collection has just re-issued his memoir, A Life in Jazz. Danny Barker came up in New Orleans at a time when jazz was just getting started. Over the course of a more than 70-year career, he played with Louis Armstrong , Cab Calloway ,...

In the battle for Mosul, Islamic State fighters who aren't killed are usually taken away for questioning by Iraqi or Kurdish intelligence. But there are also local Iraqis accused of helping ISIS — and they're put through a judicial process of sorts. One such case was heard recently in a makeshift courthouse, where a displaced judge from Mosul presides. The Sheikhan criminal court occupies a municipal office building north of Mosul. The courtroom is a medium-sized office with light brown...

The question of what to do with Adolf Hitler's birth house has plagued his home country of Austria for decades. If it were up to the government in Vienna, authorities would simply tear it down. That's what Germany did more than a quarter-century ago to the Berlin bunker where Hitler committed suicide in 1945.

In addition to hacking into Democratic organizations, Russians hacked the Republican National Committee's computer systems, according to a separate report from The New York Times — but they did not release any information that might have been retrieved from Republican networks. "Intelligence agencies have...

Bacteria are way smarter than we give them credit for. No, I'm not talking about "brain smarts." Bacteria don't have neurons. I'm referring to "chemical smarts": the ability to make, break down or gobble up whatever compound they want. Even if they've never been exposed to it before. Scientists have found a superbug — hidden 1,000 feet underground in a cave — which is resistant to 70 percent of antibiotics and can totally inactivate many of them. But here's the kicker. This bacterium has been...

"Today I'm 50 years old and when I heard your story on the radio I did the unexpected, I cried." That's Scott Walker of Portland, Ore., writing to us about our series last week on dyslexia. "I know that must sound ridiculous but, after 50 years of fighting my fight there was someone else that really understood." Walker says he felt a sense of belonging as he listened to Gabrielle Emanuel's piece on All Things Considered . And he wasn't alone. On Twitter, on Facebook and in our email inboxes...
