1:30 amWashington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5407H] Simmering racial tensions on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri and US military action in Iraq were just two of the issues President Obama addressed during his vacation on Martha's Vineyard this week.
* Calm is slowly returning to the streets of Ferguson where clashes between police and protestors upset over the shooting death of an unarmed teenager have gone on for nearly 2 weeks. In addition to a grand jury investigation, Attorney General Eric Holder has launched a federal probe into possible civil rights violations surrounding the police-involved shooting of Michael Brown. While the president returned to the White House on Monday to address the situation in Ferguson, his decision not to visit the town was met with some criticism.
* As the story in Ferguson plays out, President Obama is also working on the international threat posed by ISIL, the terrorist group also known as the Islamic State. The militants released a video this week showing the savage execution of journalist James Foley. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel calls the extremists an imminent threat to America adding, "This is beyond anything that we've seen. We must prepare for everything." President Obama remains resolute that the US will continue airstrikes against ISIL targets in Iraq, but will that be enough to stop the brutal terror organization? * In Texas, GOP Governor Rick Perry finds himself fighting felony charges just as his likely campaign for president was getting some traction. Supporters call the charges a political ploy while Perry is painting himself as a victim of an over-zealous Democratic prosecutor. Joining Gwen Ifill around the table to discuss these issues and more are Pierre Thomas of ABC News, Christi Parsons of Tribune Newspapers, Nancy Youssef of McClatchy Newspapers, and Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE
2:00 amKQED NEWSROOM [#140H] Special Edition: California Prisons Invest in Rehabilitation for "Lifer" Inmates
Special Edition: California Prisons Invest in Rehabilitation for "Lifer" Inmates
Until recently, prisoners serving life sentences in California had slim chances of ever getting paroled. With sentences of 15, 25 or 30 years to life, most of these so-called "lifers" are doing time for murder. Now, driven by court rulings that make it harder to deny parole, a record number of lifers are getting out -- nearly 2,300 since 2009, or more than three times the number paroled in the previous 17 years combined.
For the first time, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is offering classes aimed directly at lifers to prepare them for life on the outside. The prisoners who participate don't know if they'll ever get out, but they say the classes help them develop life skills, understand the impact of their crimes, and show the parole board that they're no longer a risk to public safety.
Scott Shafer goes inside Solano Prison in Vacaville to see what the CDCR's programs have to offer and also hears from a paroled lifer about his struggles and successes.
Thuy Vu talks with parole board chief Jennifer Shaffer about what the board looks for and how hearings are conducted. A panel discussion moderated by Scott Shafer provides additional perspective.
• Jennifer Shaffer, Board of Parole Hearings Executive Officer
• Carla Javits, REDF CEO & President
• Gary Lieberstein, Napa County District Attorney
• Marvin Speed, California State Parole Administrator

* Julie Green's "The Last Supper" is a provocative exhibit of 500 plates, each one the last meal of a death row inmate.
* Graham Nash, a founding member of The Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash, made his indelible mark as a music legend but photography has always been his first love, of sorts.

6:00 amHeal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine with Lissa Rankin, MD This special is based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling book, Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof that Your Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. It is a meticulously researched explanation of the critical role our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs play in our health and wellbeing - and how we can harness the power of our minds to enjoy great health and longevity with specific, easy-to-do steps.
Part 1 covers topics such as why Western medicine is very important; your brain is most important organ for your health; "Learned helplessness"; and asking what does your body need in order to heal?
Part 2 includes an explanation of the placebo effect with examples; explanation of the nocebo effect and of the role the amygdala plays in the brain and how it controls stress; understanding how the body has its own self-repair mechanisms, which are under the influence of the nervous system; and why the body's self-repair mechanisms only work when the relaxation response is activated.
Part 3 covers the importance of reducing stress response for self-healing and optimal health; Dr. Rankin's groundbreaking new wellness model: The Whole Health Cairn; why physical health is only one aspect of whole health; the difference between being healed and being cured; and healing ourselves, healing health care.
Dr. Rankin is a trained ob-gyn who has emerged as one of the newest thought leaders in the mind/body medicine arena. Her work has been featured extensively in national media, including O magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Health, Women's Health, Self, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. She is also the founder of The Whole Health Medicine Institute, dedicated to teaching doctors how to provide truly integrative health and wellness to patients. Its Board includes Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Larry Dossey and Dr. Christiane Northrup, who says about Lissa, "What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine - the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well." duration 1:26:56 STEREO TVG
