    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) Left-Leaning Latin America: Understanding U.S. Policy in the Region In 2004, the Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas was established under the leadership of late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Several countries from Latin America and the Caribbean signed on, including Cuba, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Nicaragua. This seemed to have ushered in the era of a left-leaning Latin America that is a greater challenge for U.S. policy in the region. How have these leftist governments in Latin America fared, and how has U.S. policy toward the region adapted? Speakers include: Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue; and Julia Sweig, director of Latin America Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations.

    Forum Science Could Soon Bring Species Back to Life Can, and should, we bring species back from extinction? Advances in biotechnology may enable us to revive the passenger pigeon, the great auk, and even the wooly mammoth -- and help restore biodiversity and genetic diversity in the process. But critics say that de-extinction efforts distract from important conservation priorities like combating habitat destruction and saving existing species. We discuss the issue.

    City Arts & Lectures Encore: The Brilliance of Sleep with Matt Walker Scientists have long wondered why we power down our brains and spend countless hours in light dreamless slumber. Dr. Matt Walker and his research team at U.C. Berkeley's Sleep and Neuroimaging Laboratory have found compelling evidence for the purpose of this kind of sleep. Their findings suggest that it can solidify newly learned memories by rewiring the architecture of the brain as well as refresh emotional brain reactivity, effectively ironing out our prior waking concerns and allowing for well-rested rational next day decisions. Sleep benefits us not only in learning and memory but also in many other ways that improve our health. He appeared in conversation with KQED's Amy Standen on February 27, 2013.

    All Things Considered Microsoft's Phone Bet Only days after Steve Ballmer said he's retiring, Microsoft moved swiftly to acquire Nokia's mobile phone business. The deal signals that Microsoft is committed to a future that relies on mobile devices at least as much as software. Whether that bet succeeds will depend largely on Stephen Elop, Nokia's CEO, who is returning to Microsoft and is being discussed as Ballmer's potential successor.
