    Washington 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.

    KQED 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.

    Guests:
    • 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

    Art & Soul [#205H] Kasia Bilhartz, Julie Green, Graham Nash and Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary * Kasia Bilhartz is a fire artist, which is to say she makes metal sculpture by using hollow tubing that feeds propane to multiple flames.

    * 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.
    * The Museum of Modern Art presents "Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926 - 1938," an in-depth look into Belgium surrealist Rene Magritte's passion for turning everyday items into extraordinary objects before your eyes.
