Obamacare Rolls Out in California and the Current Role of Organized Labor (Episode #102H)

KQED 9: Fri, Oct 25, 2013 -- 8:00 PM


Obamacare Rolls Out in California
As technical glitches hobble the rollout of new health care exchanges around the country under the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), California's customized system has been earning higher marks. But despite the law's goal of increasing access to health insurance, some Californians are bracing themselves for a marked increase in the cost of their coverage.

The Role of Labor Unions
Commuters may be relieved that BART trains are running again, but the strike and an ongoing labor dispute at AC Transit have raised new questions about the role of unions in the current economy and workplace. Labor leaders say they are fighting to preserve living wages for all workers while critics say they have lost relevance. Thuy Vu talks with Harley Shaiken, a labor analyst at UC Berkeley.

Ann Ravel Goes to Washington
In her final week as chair of the California Fair Political Practices Commission, Ann Ravel scored a major victory. The commission announced a record fine against two nonprofits that funneled millions of dollars into last year's election without disclosing their donors. A former Santa Clara County counsel, Ravel starts her new job at the Federal Election Commission in Washington, D.C. next week. Scott Shafer spoke to Ravel about the challenges ahead for campaign finance reform.

BART Unions Strike and a Conversation with Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye (Episode #101H)

KQED 9: Fri, Oct 18, 2013 -- 8:00 PM


BART Unions Strike After Negotiations Collapse
The breakdown of negotiations between BART management and the workers' unions affects commuters, employers, and businesses across the Bay Area. The BART strike and an ongoing labor dispute between AC Transit and its workers raises questions about the role of unions and whether transit workers should even be banned from striking.

A Conversation With Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye
In her nearly three years as Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, Tani Cantil-Sakauye has weathered severe state budget cuts, revolt by a band of unhappy lower court judges and controversy over a bloated statewide computer system she inherited from her predecessor. She sat down with senior correspondent Scott Shafer to talk about crime, punishment, how growing up the daughter of Filipino-Portuguese farmworkers affects her view from the bench and what she learned from her years as a blackjack dealer in Las Vegas.

Vaccine Refusals at Record High in Marin
In Marin County, many health experts are alarmed about a growing trend: a rising number of parents who choose to delay or skip vaccines for highly contagious diseases. County public health officials say the number of vaccinated kindergarteners has dipped so low in many schools that it's only a matter of time before a serious measles outbreak occurs.

    • KQED all channels, planned overnight maintenance: early Fri 12/19 midnight-6am

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
