1:30 amWashington Week [#5404H] * Congress scrambled to try and address a number of critical issues from border security to funding for the Veterans Administration before leaving to start its summer recess, but once again politics stalled any legislative progress. Intra-party politics forced House GOP leaders to cancel a Thursday vote on their own border bill because of strong opposition by members of their own party. House Republicans then moved to delay their August recess. Earlier in the week partisan politics were the backdrop to a vote by House Republicans to sue President Obama over his alleged abuse of executive power in enforcing the Affordable Care Act. Can anything be done to bridge the political divide that has lead to this legislative failure? We'll get answers and analysis from Robert Costa of The Washington Post and Molly Ball of The Atlantic.
* The crises in the Middle East and Ukraine continue to spark international criticism and outrage. On Thursday the US and UN announced that Israel and Hamas have agreed to a 72-hour cease-fire to begin Friday morning. During this time forces on the ground will remain in place while negotiations for a more durable truce continue.
* President Obama announced new sanctions against Russia for its continued actions to undermine Ukraine's sovereignty. Meanwhile the investigation into the downing of a Malaysian jetliner is being hampered by violent clashes between Ukraine's government forces and pro-Russian separatists.
Elise Labott of CNN and Yochi Dreazen of Foreign Policy magazine will examine why the US and European nations are taking a hard line on the deadly conflicts in Gaza and Ukraine. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE
2:00 amKQED NEWSROOM [#137H] Loretta Lynch on the CPUC, Tech's Diversity Deficit and Free Art!
Former CPUC President Loretta Lynch on the California Public Utilities Commisison
Emails that reveal an unusually close relationship between PG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission are leading to calls for the removal of Michael Peevey, the head of the regulatory agency. The emails were obtained from a lawsuit settlement related to the 2010 San Bruno pipeline blast that killed eight people, destroyed 38 homes and leveled a neighborhood. The city's mayor says state officials are "subject to undue influence" by PG&E and that state oversight of the utility is corrupted. Loretta Lynch is a former CPUC president and a longtime critic of corporate influence at the state agency. Lynch sits down with Scott Shafer.

Diversity Deficit in the Tech Industry
While tech thrives in the Bay Area, not everyone is enjoying the boom equally. The industry is being criticized for lack of diversity when it comes to age, gender and ethnicity. Recently an over 50-year old worker filed a lawsuit against social media giant Twitter for age discrimination. And in the last few weeks, a number of high tech companies including Twitter, Google and Facebook have released their employee demographics. They show Silicon Valley and tech companies are largely filled with young, Caucasian and Asian male employees.

3:00 amMel Brooks: American Masters In 60 years in show business, Mel Brooks has earned more major awards than any other living entertainer. A comedy giant of our time, scrawny Melvin Kaminsky developed his aggressively funny personality on the mean streets of Brooklyn, to protect against bullies. His first public success came in the early '60s with the 2000 Year Old Man albums, recorded with Carl Reiner and unleashing Brooks' wacky mind on the world - his brazen satirical film The Producers won the 1968 Oscar for best screenplay and such cult classics as Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, The Twelve Chairs, High Anxiety, To Be or Not to Be, Spaceballs and Robin Hood: Men in Tights followed. Ironically, this larger-than-life, loud-mouthed little man is very private and has been fairly reclusive since his wife of 41 years, Anne Bancroft, died in 2005. He has never authorized a biography and has requested that his friends not talk about him, making his full participation with American Masters a genuine first. duration 1:25:46 SRND51 TVPG-L

6:00 amBrainChange 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. duration 1:27:27 STEREO TVG
7:30 amHeal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine with Lissa Rankin, MD This special is based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling book, Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof that Your Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. It is a meticulously researched explanation of the critical role our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs play in our health and wellbeing - and how we can harness the power of our minds to enjoy great health and longevity with specific, easy-to-do steps.
Part 1 covers topics such as why Western medicine is very important; your brain is most important organ for your health; "Learned helplessness"; and asking what does your body need in order to heal?
Part 2 includes an explanation of the placebo effect with examples; explanation of the nocebo effect and of the role the amygdala plays in the brain and how it controls stress; understanding how the body has its own self-repair mechanisms, which are under the influence of the nervous system; and why the body's self-repair mechanisms only work when the relaxation response is activated.
Part 3 covers the importance of reducing stress response for self-healing and optimal health; Dr. Rankin's groundbreaking new wellness model: The Whole Health Cairn; why physical health is only one aspect of whole health; the difference between being healed and being cured; and healing ourselves, healing health care.
Dr. Rankin is a trained ob-gyn who has emerged as one of the newest thought leaders in the mind/body medicine arena. Her work has been featured extensively in national media, including O magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Health, Women's Health, Self, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. She is also the founder of The Whole Health Medicine Institute, dedicated to teaching doctors how to provide truly integrative health and wellness to patients. Its Board includes Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Larry Dossey and Dr. Christiane Northrup, who says about Lissa, "What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine - the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well." duration 1:29:20 STEREO TVG

1:30 pmSuze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06 STEREO TVG

Working together, they canvassed for voter registration, created Freedom Schools, and established the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, with the goal of challenging the segregationist state Democratic Party at the national convention in Atlantic City. The campaign was marked by sustained and deadly violence, including the notorious murders of three civil rights workers, countless beatings, the burning of 35 churches, and the bombing of 70 homes and Freedom Houses. duration 1:56:16 STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: DVI)
