KQED World: Sat, Sep 13, 2014 -- 8:00 AM

Soon they'll be the majority - How Asian immigrants are changing America - The United States is seeing a new wave of immigrants, and many of them are coming from Asia. In some cities, like San Francisco, Asians already make up a large part of society. Soon they'll be the majority. Many families have been in the US for generations. Now other, young and well-educated Asians are following in their footsteps. They enjoy America's creative freedoms and the traditional values of their ancestors. They come from China, the Philippines, India, Vietnam, South Korea and Japan and they're looking for success. More than 15 million Asians currently live in the US. Anson Liang and his wife arrived from Singapore five years ago. Although the city state is considered a southeast Asian economic powerhouse, Anson Liang wants to start a career in America and join the elite in Silicon Valley. He's just started a company - an online platform to issue credit. His target group - start-ups like himself. Tradition Trumps Love - Life between two cultures in Namibia - Twenty-nine-year-old Zuma Katjiuonga lives two lives. In Namibia's capital Windhoek, he works as a lighting technician for a regional TV broadcaster. He leads a modern life and has been in a relationship for two years. But he also belongs to the nomadic Himba tribe and feels bound to its traditions. It's estimated that around 7,000 Himba live in Namibia and Angola today. Most of Africa's nomadic tribes have long since settled down. Today there are just eight large nomadic tribes on the continent, like the Massai. But they, too, have to balance a life between the modern world and traditional customs. Amazon Inventory - How a nature reserve comes into being - In southern Colombia, a group of scientists are conducting research in the Amazon rain forest, hoping to discover new species of plants and animals. It's an exciting, hands-on approach to connecting with nature. The more species they find, the stronger their argument for making at least part of the Amazon rain forest a protected area. The world's biggest continuous forest is nearly the size of Australia. The Amazon rain forest covers more than 6.7 million square kilometers and stretches across several countries: Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Suriname, Venezuela as well as French-Guiana. But finding a common approach to protecting the rain forest is both difficult and tedious.
