On a Friday this is MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
And I'm Renee Montagne. There's lots of anticipation about the government's monthly jobs report that will be released later this morning. Last month's job creation numbers were very disappointing - just 74,000 jobs added to the payroll - far below the recent monthly averages. NPR's John Ydstie joined us to talk about job creation and what it's telling us about the economy. Good morning.
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. It's been a dreary winter but a penguin should be used to it, right? Not those at the Sea Life Center in England. Those humble penguins are natives of coastal South America - far from the U.K.'s endless wind and rain. The black and white birds were feeling so blue from the miserable weather the zoo staff worried they'd get sick. They prescribed antidepressants and the penguins perked up. Now they're hoping for a little sunshine. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
The American military is trying to get to the bottom of a series of scandals. Air Force nuclear missile officers cheated on tests, Navy sailors are accused of the same, and more - enough that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is concerned that there's a pattern here, a problem with ethical lapses across the armed services. NPR Pentagon correspondent Tom Bowman joins us now to talk about this. Good morning.
