Stories we’re chasing today at WHYY

    Good morning, Feeders! It’s icy out there, so proceed with caution. But things at WHYY are as active as ever, so feel free to dive right into the news today.

    Between some fundraising stints today, Lizz Fiedler is tracking the Jihad Jane case, as a change in plea is expected today. Lizz will also decode the recently released safety plan for duck boats.

    Right now, Peter Crimmins is meeting with a local Sundance Film Festival winner. Later he’ll be at a press conference for the SS United States Conservancy.

    Peter will also work with NewsWorks local editor Patrick Cobbs on a story about the termination of Cliveden curator Phillip Seitz.

    Meggan Kole is after more details on a recommendation by the American College of Physicians to reduce the number of back x-rays. Most back pain, research shows, is the result of an injury elsewhere in the body.

    Carolyn Beeler will see what’s brewing at the International Year of Chemistry, which launches today at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. She’ll also try to track down an expert who can talk about the effects bullied kids feel when their humiliation is captured on video and posted online.
