California can't quite breathe a sigh of relief. Two of the biggest earthquakes to rattle the state in decades did not result in any major injuries. But scientists say it's a sign of what's to come. Here's how Governor Gavin Newsom put it.

The U.S. women's soccer team did more than win the World Cup over the weekend. The U.S.A did beat the Netherlands 2-0 last night in Lyon, France. Americans also inspired many who play the women's game. Here's NPR's Eleanor Beardsley.

Sonic Devices Target Teenagers In Philadelphia

Jul 5, 2019

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

In this country, Philadelphia is trying to keep certain unwanted people out of parks. The city has been playing a constant, high-pitched noise at night - a noise that only teenagers and young adults can hear. Here's Michaela Winberg of our member station WHYY.

MICHAELA WINBERG, BYLINE: If you look at the rec center building at Philadelphia's East Poplar Playground, you'll see a small beige speaker screwed into the wall. Every night at 10 p.m., that tiny speaker activates. And for eight hours, it plays nonstop. Here's what it sounds like.
