    KQED NEWSROOM [#109H] NSA Surveillance, Mayor Chuck Reed and Farewell to Candlestick Park
    NSA Surveillance Programs Under Fire
    Pressure on the Obama administration to overhaul the National Security Agency's controversial surveillance program reached an all-time high. In a week when Silicon Valley executives, including the CEOs of Apple, Yahoo and Google, met with President Obama urging him to reign in the NSA's practices, a panel of advisers appointed by the president recommended major oversight of the program. That followed on the heels of a federal court ruling Monday which questioned the constitutionality of the agency's wholesale collection of personal cell phone data.

    Guests:
    Michelle Quinn, San Jose Mercury News
    Cindy Cohn, Electronic Frontier Foundation

    San Jose Mayor Tackles Pension Reform
    Mayor Chuck Reed is spearheading a ballot initiative to reform the state's retirement benefits system. His proposal would allow public agencies to negotiate reduced pensions for future work while preserving pensions already earned. Opponents of the measure, including other California mayors and labor unions, see the move as an attack on the retirement security of police, firefighters and other public workers.

    Farewell to Candlestick Park
    Monday night's football game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Atlanta Falcons at Candlestick Park will mark the end of an era. It's the 49ers' last home game of the regular season, and a last hurrah for the park, which is slated to close after 53 years. While best known as a sports venue, Candlestick has hosted many other events, including the Beatles' last official concert in 1966 and a visit by Pope John Paul II in 1987. Scott Shafer takes a look at a Bay Area landmark affectionately known as "The 'Stick" with sports columnist Glenn Dickey.

    BrainChange with David Perlmutter, MD This program reveals the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbohydrates on the human brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health. Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.
    The vast majority of us don't realize that our seemingly "healthy" daily habits are silently aggravating our nervous systems and setting us up for serious brain ailments. This program shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It's in the food you eat. Dr. Perlmutter, a leading international authority on nutritional medicine, has a disturbing yet empowering message: our brains are highly sensitive to certain proteins and sugars that are ubiquitous today - in our hand creams and organic ice creams, cocktails and coffees, multi-grain breads, whole fruits, and even brand name pharmaceuticals.
    Dr. Perlmutter shows us how to prevent, treat, and reverse a wide array of brain-related disorders by eliminating specific foods from our diets and making smarter lifestyle choices. His new book, Grain Brain, is the first book of its kind to explore the insidious role our highly touted low-fat, high-carb diets play in a host of neurological conditions.
    Dr. Perlmutter is both a board-certified neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He also runs his own private practice, The Perlmutter Health Center, in Naples, Florida.
