    Gov. Brown Declares Drought Emergency
    Gov. Jerry Brown declared an official drought Friday, Jan. 17. Last year was the driest year on record in California, and forecasters don't see many rain clouds on the horizon. With the snowpack meager and reservoirs low, water officials and legislators are debating what to do before it's too late.

    Guests:
    Lauren Sommer, KQED Science reporter
    Heather Cooley, Pacific Institute Water Program co-director
    Chris Brown, California Urban Water Conservation Council executive director

    A Threat to the Hotel Industry?
    Airbnb has been shaking up the travel industry, going from a scrappy upstart listing rooms for rent to an international hospitality powerhouse. It's a leader in the so-called "sharing economy." Customers — or "hosts" as the company calls them — now use the service to list more than a half-billion offerings around the world. But as the company grows, it's also facing mounting criticism from hotel owners and government officials who say the company is breaking the law and avoiding taxes. Scott Shafer hears from Airbnb co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky.

    Tales of the Tenderloin
    Special correspondent Spencer Michels explores whether change is coming to the gritty Tenderloin, home to some of San Francisco's most down and out. As tech companies like Twitter move into the nearby Mid-Market corridor and encroach on the neighborhood, Tenderloin Housing Clinic executive director Randy Shaw says its unique housing stock prevents gentrification. "Cool Gray City of Love" author Gary Kamiya goes further, suggesting in his book that the city and nonprofits headquartered in the Tenderloin have a stake in keeping it the way it is.

    Seven Wonders of the Buddhist World Historian Bettany Hughes travels to spectacular and significant locations to offer a unique insight into one of the most ancient belief systems still practiced today.

Today it is practiced by more than 350 million people worldwide, with numbers continuing to grow year after year. In an attempt to gain a better understanding of the different beliefs and practices that form the core of the Buddhist philosophy, investigate how Buddhism started and how it spread, Hughes visits some of the most spectacular monuments built by Buddhists across the globe.

    Bhutan - Taking The Middle Path to Happiness This program examines Bhutan's policy of "Gross National Happiness," which emphasizes environmental and cultural preservation, economic development through hydroelectric power, and transparent and honest governance. The Himalayan kingdom's commitment to these four pillars, particularly its approaches to "good governance" and sustainable energy practices, set it apart from most of the world. Prime Minister Lynpo Yeshey Zimba and Jigme Drukpa, the Director of the National Academy of Performing Arts, articulate the importance of each pillar. During the film, government officials and locals explain the meaning of "the middle path," a concept rooted in their Buddhism-influenced view of the world. Happiness and enlightenment, they believe, result from neither overindulging in the world's pleasures nor rejecting the world's goodness. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    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.

It's early rock and pop at its best on PBS. Hosted by the always "Supreme" Mary Wilson. duration 1:59:10   STEREO TVG
