    All Things Considered What's Next for Al-Qaida Terrorists in Mali? Those who have been fighting al-Qaida for a decade have learned never to underestimate the group's affiliates. The groups may start out with local agendas, but they eventually morph into jihadists with global ambitions. The U.S. learned that lesson on Christmas Day four years ago when al-Qaida's arm in Yemen put a suicide bomber on a plane bound for Detroit. Now al-Qaida has affiliates in Mali, and the U.S. is watching closely. So far, Al-Qaida's arm there has focused on fighting government troops, but that could change.

    City Arts & Lectures Tim Ferriss The program's guest is Tim Ferriss, start-up angel investor, blogger and entrepreneur. He is best-known for his first book "The 4-Hour Workweek," a how-to-guide about outsourcing work and other aspects of life. Ferriss followed-up on the phenomenal international success of that debut with "The 4-Hour Body." That book combines the advice of athletes and doctors with personal experimentation to outline a lifestyle plan that aims to elevate metabolism and overall strength -- and even train the body to function well on two hours sleep per day. Ferriss is a guest lecturer at Princeton University, where he has spoken on high-tech entrepreneurship since 2003. His newest book, "The 4-Hour Chef," includes recipes based on his nutritional and time-saving philosophy. Ferriss appeared in conversation with Phil Bronstein on December 6, 2012.

    Forum Lance Armstrong Admits to Doping After years of denial, Lance Armstrong reportedly admitted to doping this week during an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The confession by the seven-time Tour de France winner further opens the door to public scrutiny, lawsuits and millions in lost endorsements. Sources say Armstrong came clean because he wants to continue competing. Should athletes who doped be allowed to participate in the world of competitive sports? We'll also consider the case of Barry Bonds, who was the center of a baseball steroids scandal, and whether he should be admitted to the Hall of Fame.
