    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2430H] May 17, 2013 Guest Host: Scott Shafer.
    News Panel:
    GOV. BROWN'S MAY REVISED BUDGET - Gov. Jerry Brown's revised budget is $1.3 billion leaner than his original budget released in January. With a surge in state tax revenue and no deficit for the first time in years, Republicans cheered the governor's caution against spending. Democrats were less enthused. Schools appear to be the big winner with $2.9 billion in additional funding, but there are no increases for severely cut social safety net programs or for prison population reduction. Gov. Brown cited federal sequestration cuts, falling wages and higher Social Security payroll taxes as obstacles to the state's economic recovery, warning "It's a call for prudence, not exuberance. "
    NEW INQUIRIES INTO BAY BRIDGE BOLTS - A state Senate committee grilled Caltrans officials Tuesday over the 2,300 galvanized steel rods on the new $6.4 billion eastern span of the Bay Bridge, whose installation and safety is now questionable. The hearing came a day after the Federal Highway Administration agreed to investigate Caltrans' decision-making process and the $10 million fix for the 32 rods that have already failed.
    VETERAN BENEFITS UNTAPPED - Veterans returning from war find there are yet other battles to wage at home: from weathering the long-term effects of trauma to finding stable jobs and housing. In California, a state program to help veterans buy homes remains largely unspent: last year, only 83 loans totaling $10.5 million were originated, despite over $ 1 billion in available funds. Democratic Assembly Speaker John A. Perez has taken aim at the program, adding to the clamor of voices demanding that veterans get more help, and in a more timely fashion.
    Guests: Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; Jaxon Van Derbeken, San Francisco Chronicle; Aaron Glantz, Center for Investigative Reporting.
    ANNA DEAVERE SMITH PITCHES EMPATHY - It's not a word often heard in politics and on the news, but "empathy" is something that today's leaders might want to cultivate at least, so says performer and playwright Anna Deavere Smith. In an upcoming workshop in San Francisco, Smith aims to teach the art of empathy, and it's not just for actors. "Who is that boss that you're gonna go in and talk to if you would like a raise?" said Smith. "Who is that person you're about to fire?" Scott Shafer talks with Smith about how empathy can be a useful tool in many of life's arenas.

    Moyers & Company [#219H] The Toxic Politics of Science * Science can be a battleground - witness the politics of climate change, the teaching of evolution, the uncharted terrain of genetic modification and stem cell research, among other contentious issues. But when industries release untested chemicals into our environment - putting profits before public health - our children are the first to suffer. Nowhere is this more troubling than in the ongoing story of lead poisoning.
    This week, Bill talks with David Rosner and Gerald Markowitz, public health historians who've been taking on the chemical industry for years - writing about the hazards of industrial pollution and the neglect of worker safety - despite industry efforts to undermine them. Their latest book, Lead Wars: The Politics of Science and the Fate of America's Children, is the culmination of 20 years of research. Markowitz and Rosner warn that, for young children, there's no safe level of exposure to this dangerous toxin still lurking in millions of homes.
    Rosner and Markowitz discuss thwarted efforts to hold the lead industry accountable, failed attempts to find cheap solutions, and the cost to the future of our children. As long as the chemical industry and its powerful lobbies prevail in blocking efforts to reform outdated laws, the authors say, we will continue to float in a soup of toxins - inhaling, drinking, and absorbing chemicals that we may learn, years later, have put us all in harm's way.
    * Also on the show, Bill is joined by the heads of two independent watchdog groups keeping an eye on government as well as on powerful interests - like chemical companies - seeking to influence it. Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics and OpenSecrets.org, and Danielle Brian, who runs the Project on Government Oversight, talk to Bill about the importance of transparency to our democracy, and their efforts to scrutinize who's giving money, who's receiving it, and most importantly, what's expected in return.

    You Don't Know Jack Soo This program profiles American entertainer Jack Soo, an Oakland native who became the first Asian American to be cast in the lead role in a regular television series Valentine's Day (1963), and later starred in the popular comedy show Barney Miller (1975-1978). The film traces Jack's early beginnings as a nightclub singer and comedian, to his breakthrough role as Sammy Fong in Rogers and Hammerstein's Broadway play and film version of The Flower Drum Song.
    This profile also explores why Soo, a former internee who was actually born Goro Suzuki, was forced to change his name in the post WWII era. Because of his experiences, throughout his career in films and television, Soo refused to play roles that were demeaning to and often spoke out against negative ethnic portrayals. With plenty of clips to showcase his talent, this is a fun program on the "first Asian American hipster."
