    ADD & Mastering It! From the team of comedians behind the ground breaking documentary ADD & Loving It!?! comes a new, entertaining and empowering film. Patrick McKenna and Rick Green make it clear that there is much that can be done to not just manage this disorder, but turn it to your advantage. The program goes through 36 practical tips for managing one's ADD or ADHD.
    The program is fast and funny. As adults with ADHD Patrick and Rick keep it light. The 36 Tips are specifically chosen to be ADHD/ADD-friendly. What works for most people is often counter-productive for ADDers. For example, meditation is challenging enough for the average person; for the ADDer it's daunting. But experts explain "the walking meditation," and Rick shows how to seize small moments throughout the day to recover and relax. Some of the tips are simple tricks that help focus and motivation: Choose Your Distraction, Chunk It Up, Keep Stuff Together.
    Backing up Patrick and Rick are many experts, who explain the neurology and psychology of this condition. The list of experts is a who's who of psychiatrists, psychologists and authors. From the opening moments of the film the viewer will be laughing and engaged - because that's how ADHD/ADD folks learn best.

    Sesame Street [#4294H] Amphibian Show Elmo and Abby are resting when suddenly it's time to play the game show, "Find that Amphibian." Elmo and Abby must find an amphibian before the game show's tadpole turns into a frog. They don't know what an amphibian is, but the announcer gives them a clue- an animal that starts out living in water. Elmo and Abby meet a fish and are convinced they have won the game! As the announcer explains, though, fish only live in water and not on land. Elmo and Abby look for their second clue- an animal that breathes air. They find an amphibian! A bird! They learn, though, that amphibians don't have any feathers. Elmo and Abby look for their third clue-an animal with four legs. Elmo and Abby come across a horse, but a horse is a mammal, not an amphibian. Elmo and Abby use their last clue about metamorphosis to help them. They come across an alligator. Could this be an amphibian? No, an alligator is a reptile not an amphibian. He looks the same way now as he did when he was a baby, only bigger. Elmo and Abby are disappointed. They're never going to find an amphibian! Luckily, they run into Chris who suggests that they find an animal that fits all the clues- an animal that lives in water when it's a baby, breathes air as an adult, has four legs, and goes through metamorphosis. Suddenly, they think of Anne Phibian, the game show's announcer. She matches all the clues. Hooray! They found an amphibian. And just in time! Elmo, Abby and Chris celebrate as they dance with the amphibians! duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Road to Perfect Health with Brenda Watson We all know the saying, "All roads lead to Rome." Well, according to digestive care expert, Brenda Watson, they all lead to the digestive system - at least where our health is concerned. In this program, Brenda shows us how all health ailments can be linked to an imbalance in the digestive system.
    With over 20 years experience helping people overcome health challenges, Ms. Watson has been able to help people return to health - whether they suffer from typical digestive problems or chronic fatigue - by balancing the good and bad bacteria in their gut. Brenda shows us that a well-balanced intestinal tract makes up a large part of our immune system, or our body's "Gut Protection System" (GPS).
    Unfortunately our GPS sometimes malfunctions and becomes out of balance, leading our health in the wrong direction. When this happens it leads to sickness and health problems. Ms. Watson shows us that no matter what our sickness or condition, putting our GPS in balance will put us back on the road to better health. Even if you don't have a heath problem, you need to keep your GPS in balance. How do you do this? Brenda gives a clear and concise plan to maintain a healthy, well-balanced GPS.

    NEWS PANEL:
    DEFERRED DEPORTATION FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS - On Wednesday, the federal government launched a controversial program which would allow more than one million undocumented immigrants to live and work in the US legally, for 2 years. The program is open to people between the ages of 15 and 31 and who meet certain requirements, including continuous residency in the U.S. for the past 5 years.

    Washington Week [#5207H] Mitt Romney's decision to pick Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate seems to have energized conservatives and even excited many liberals. The 7-term lawmaker is best known for his dramatic proposal to cut and transform government health and income security programs to balance the budget. Democrats believe Ryan exemplifies the distinct election-year choice voters will have to make between the Republican and Democratic visions about the size and role of the federal government.
    On the presidential campaign trail the rhetoric seemed to get louder and angrier as both candidates launched bus tours in key battleground states. During a 3-day trip to Iowa President Barack Obama talked about the need for drought relief and touted the benefits of renewable energy. Mitt Romney traveled to coal-rich eastern Ohio to talk about the importance of coal as one of the ways to make the US energy independent.
    Ryan faced tough questions about his proposed plan to reform Medicare which he says will protect and strengthen the program. The Obama campaign insists "it will end Medicare as we know it."
    But the debate over energy policy and Medicare was overshadowed by a firestorm Vice President Joe Biden ignited with his controversial comments suggesting Romney would put Americans "in chains."
    Is this negative war of words and remarkably nasty tone coming from both camps what voters can expect for the next 3 months until Election Day? Or will the upcoming conventions force both campaigns to refocus their attention to jobs, the weak economy, and a continuing war in Afghanistan?
    We will get analysis on the 2012 presidential race from Jackie Calmes of The New York Times, John Harris of Politico, and Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics.
