Where’s Zinke The Interior secretary’s special flag offers clues

Friday 22:48 GMT

At the Interior Department’s headquarters in downtown Washington, Secretary Ryan Zinke has revived an arcane military ritual that no one can remember ever happening in the federal government.

A security staffer takes the elevator to the seventh floor, climbs the stairs to the roof and hoists a special secretarial flag whenever Zinke enters the building. When the secretary goes home for the day or travels, the flag — a blue banner emblazoned with the agency’s bison seal flanked by seven white stars representing the Interior bureaus — comes down.

‘Bone Music’: The revival of making albums made from X-rays

Tuesday 07:01 GMT

Music etched onto the film of X-rays was the only way some rock-and-roll lovers in the former Soviet Union could listen to certain tunes.

These bone records served a purpose at the time, but since X-Ray film is so thin, the sound quality of the records was terrible — and the albums themselves would eventually disintegrate under the turntable’s needle after a handful of plays. These records were bought and sold on street corners, in dark alleyways, in the park,” Stephen Coates, author of “X-Ray Audio: The Strange Story of Soviet Music on the Bone,” told NPR.

Workers' rights in Germany: Not everyone can go on strike

Thursday 15:31 GMT

Different bosses, different rights: whether Germans are allowed to strike for better working conditions depends on if they work for a private employer, the church or the state.

The special thing about this strike: the hospital in Ottweiler is a Catholic institution, and the staff members at the Marienhaus Clinic do not have the same rights to strike as non-Church employees. They are demanding that more nursing personnel be hired, so they can actually take breaks and not work an inhumane amount of overtime — a demand common to nurses across Germany.
