    Roadtrip Nation [#1008H] It Doesn't End Here After traveling over 5,000 miles in 45 days, the Roadtrippers reach Massachusetts for the final week of their journey. There, they meet with Jeremy England, an MIT biophysicist, and Juan Enriquez, the CEO of Biotechnonomy LLC. Change is the topic of discussion with Juan, who tells the Roadtrippers to 'scare the hell' out of themselves sometimes because stagnancy is the enemy of personal growth. Moving onto the last interview of the trip, the Roadtrippers meet with Lydia Villa-Komaroff, an internationally-acclaimed molecular biologist and Chief Scientific Officer at CytonomeST. Lydia discusses the challenges of being a Mexican-American woman in a male-dominated field, and credits her passion for helping her to overcome obstacles.

    Waterbuster Filmmaker J. Carlos Peinado revisits his ancestral homeland in North Dakota to investigate the impact of the massive Garrison Dam project. Constructed in the 1950s by the Army Corps of Engineers, the dam destroyed a self-sufficient American Indian community, submerging 156, 000 acres of fertile farmland and ranchland, and ultimately displaced Peinado's family and others at the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.
    Peinado traces the footsteps of his maternal grandmother back to the reservation, where he learns more about the building of the Garrison Dam and the effects of the federal government's relocation policies upon sovereign Indian nations. Through interviews with elders, he begins to understand the proud and resilient nature of the Mandan-Hidatsa-Arikara Nation, their contributions to American culture and history, and their deep attachment to the harsh and storied landscape of the Northwestern prairie an attachment for which they paid a heavy price.

    Moyers & Company [#244H] How Dollarocracy Is Destroying America The money and power behind this week's election results confirm what everybody knows: democracy is under siege. We, the People, don't control our leaders; moneyed interests get their way. Corporations are free to buy politicians, judges, and elections with virtually unlimited cash, and big media conglomerates reap billions from political advertising.
    We idealize the notion of political equality in the voting booth but eviscerate it in practice, caught in the clutches of a "money-and-media complex" not unlike the vast "military-industrial complex" President Eisenhower warned us about more than half a century ago.
    No one knows the dangers better than John Nichols and Robert McChesney. Nichols is Washington correspondent for The Nation and a pioneering political blogger. McChesney is a leading scholar of communications and society and a professor at the University of Illinois. Together, ten years ago, they became the founding figures of the media reform movement Free Press ? and have never flagged in challenging the Big Money and Big Media that, combined, corrupt our democracy. Their latest book is Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex Is Destroying America.
    This week, Bill Moyers speaks with Nichols and McChesney. "Democracy means rule of the people, one person, one vote, " McChesney says. "'Dollarocracy' means the rule of the dollars. One dollar, one vote. Those with lots of dollars have lots of power. Those with no dollars have no power."
    "'Dollarocracy' has the ability to animate dead ideas," Nichols tells Moyers."You can take an idea that's a bad idea, buried by the voters. 'Dollarocracy' can dig it up and that zombie idea will walk among us."

    KQED NEWSROOM [#104H] Sunnyvale Adopts New Gun Law and Tech Companies Reshape San Francisco
    Sunnyvale Mayor Tony Spitaleri on New Gun Law
    The small South Bay city of Sunnyvale drew national attention this week when voters approved Measure C. The new law, which goes into effect on January 1, requires gun owners to report missing firearms within 48 hours and to keep guns locked up when not in use. It also prohibits ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds. The National Rifle Association has threatened to sue. Scott Shafer sat down with Sunnyvale Mayor Tony Spitaleri to find out what inspired him to push for the law and how the city is responding to the NRA.

    Tech Companies Reshaping San Francisco
    Twitter's IPO may have Wall Street a-twitter, but the San Francisco-based tech company's foray into public trading also drew protesters concerned about gentrification in the city. With Yelp breaking ground on new headquarters downtown and Google building a barge on the San Francisco Bay, is the tech industry's success reshaping the Bay Area?

    Lake Tahoe Development Battle
    The Sierra Club and other environmental groups have filed arguments in a lawsuit against a controversial new plan that governs development around Lake Tahoe. The lake's iconic blue waters have lost 20 feet of clarity since 1968 due to uncontrolled urbanization in the '50s and '60s. Strict regulations and a $1.6 billion investment in the lake have helped make some gains in clarity, but environmentalists fear that the new rules could reverse the trend.

    Secrets of Selfridges Two words are synonymous with the department store Selfridges: luxury and London. However, Selfridges was the brain child of an American, Mr. Harry Gordon Selfridge, whose life is depicted in the PBS Masterpiece series "Mr. Selfridge." The real, flamboyant Mr. Selfridge revolutionized the way that Londoners shopped by introducing a new American retail model that made shopping less of a practical pursuit and more of a luxurious adventure.
    Keen to put the shopper's experience above all else it was Selfridge who coined the phrase "the customer is always right," an expression that has become the mantra of retail stores all over the world. Today, Selfridges remains as much of an attraction as it was when it opened in 1909, and Selfridge's dream of creating a sophisticated and adventurous shopping experience is enjoyed by people from every corner of the world, 362 days a year.
