Confirmation proceedings were marked by student protests at the UC Board of Regents meeting in San Francisco.

EVA PATERSON ON RACIAL PROFILING AND THE TRAYVON MARTIN CASE - The acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin has sparked strong reaction, from Florida to California. The verdict, which coincided with the opening of the feature film "Fruitvale Station" about the killing of Oscar Grant by a BART police officer in 2009, struck a nerve in the Bay Area. It also cast a renewed spotlight on "stand your ground" laws, which allow people to defend themselves with deadly force if they feel threatened. Eva Paterson, president of the Equal Justice Society, discusses the lasting impact of these cases. duration 27:46 STEREO TVRE

* At the White House today, President Obama forged ahead in promoting parts of his signature health care legislation set to go into effect this October. At the same time congressional Republicans continued their push to repeal the law or at least delay or dismantle it. What's going on? David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal will explain why the debate over the Affordable Care Act has continued a year after becoming law.
* Earlier in the week on Capitol Hill, a rare bipartisan compromise in the Senate led to a tentative deal to avoid the so-called "nuclear option" on filibuster rules. The agreement cleared the way for the confirmation of a handful of presidential nominees whose nominations had been languishing. But will the spirit of bipartisanship extend to the coming battles over the budget and debt-ceiling? We'll get answers and analysis from Charles Babington of the Associated Press.
* Plus, Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report will take a closer look at Liz Cheney's bid to unseat fellow Republican and three-term Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming and the landscape for the 2014 mid-term elections. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE

4:00 pmSin, Fire & Gold! The Days of San Francisco's Barbary Coast Since its beginnings, San Francisco has been home to an eclectic array of characters drawn not only to the city's spectacularly beautiful surroundings but also to the vibrant spirit of independence the area seems to foster. KQED's documentary, broadcast digitally in HDTV, celebrates the people, places and events which have shaped the city over the years. San Francisco can boast not only of physical beauty, but also a history replete with swashbuckling drama and Gold Rush fever. Largely forgotten, much of this history seems to have been buried with the rubble of the great 1906 earthquake. Host Greg Sherwood joins tour guide and historian Daniel Bacon in sifting through the present to uncover some of San Francisco's fascinating past.
Viewers join them for a leisurely walk along the city's original waterfront - the Barbary Coast - and discover the last remaining pocket of original buildings in the area which miraculously survived the 1906 earthquake and fire. The tour points out where Gold Rush ships still lie buried beneath the towering skyscrapers of the Financial District, and viewers learn why the Ferry building faces a particular sleepy side street as well as the logical main avenue of Market Street. At times, the tour takes viewers inside some of the buildings along the way to enjoy unique interior designs and significant architectural elements, including the Old Mint, a spectacular national landmark seldom seen by the general public. It also highlights some of the area's more colorful characters, such as famed Gold Rush era performer Lotta Crabtree. duration 1:29:38 STEREO TVG
