    Washington Week [#5711] For the second week in a row, President Trump has bucked the Republican Party and made a deal with Democrats in Congress. The president says he'll work with Democratic Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to make sure undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children are protected from deportation after the phase-out of DACA. In return, he wants stepped-up border security.
    *Once again, Mr. Trump's conservative base is seething.
    *Earlier in the week, the president invited several vulnerable Democrats to the White House for a bipartisan dinner to discuss tax reform, one of the president's top priorities. Could another deal with Democrats be on the horizon?
    *Republicans aren't the only ones on Capitol Hill questioning their ideology. A health care divide is growing in the Democratic Party after independent Sen. Bernie Sanders introduced a single-payer insurance bill he calls "Medicare for All." Just 17 senators have signed on to the proposal so there is no chance it will become law this term. But will universal health care be a new litmus test for Democrats in 2018 and beyond?
    Joining Robert Costa at the Washington Week table:
    Peter Baker and Yamiche Alcindor of The New York Times
    Erica Werner of the Associated Press
    Molly Ball of The Atlantic

    Arts In Context [#801H] Magna Carda Austin's premiere rap group, Magna Carda, makes a name for themselves within the local and global music scene.

MC-producer duo Megz Kelli and Dougie Do fought through this obstacle by adding what is now their signature - live instrumentation. Described by Mashable as "Austin's answer to The Roots," Magna Carda's genre-defying blend of rap-meets-jazz-meets-R&B-meets-electronic has quickly captured the imagination of listeners and the attention of critics alike in Austin and beyond. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Ready Jet Go! [#120] Date Night/Face on the Fritz Date Night - When Jet realizes that it's the anniversary of Carrot and Celery's first date, he wants to recreate that first picnic they had on one of Bortron 7's moons. The kids all get involved to help create the perfect date night. Curriculum: It's hard to have a picnic anywhere in the Solar System besides Earth - here we're not too near or too far from the Sun, so the temperature is just right, plus we have liquid oceans and a breathable atmosphre. Anywhere else, you'd definitely have a hard time enjoying a picnic outdoors. Face on the Fritz - When the kids are trying to build a new pet house for Sunspot and FACE 9000 gives them mixed-up directions, they learn that it is time for FACE 9000 to get upgraded. In the meantime FACE 9000's "substitute," the "DATA-BOX," is an old Earth computer from the early 1980s. The kids need to learn how to give instructions in the way computers understand, putting them in charge of using technology in an active way. When FACE 9000 comes back, they have learned to appreciate him, as well as to be more independent thinkers. Curriculum: Technology has advanced greatly since the days of the giant computers that guided man to the moon in 1969. However, even though technology is very useful, it is still a tool, not an end in itself, and people still need to know how to monitor and program it. duration 28:55   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Head of Joaquin Murrieta For over a decade filmmaker John J. Valadez searched for the remains of Joaquin Murrieta, a legendary Mexican outlaw who blazed a trail of revenge across California until he was caught and decapitated in the summer of 1853. A hundred and sixty-two years later Valadez believes he has the head. So he embarks on a quixotic, cross-country road trip through history, myth and memory to bury the fabled head of Joaquin Murrieta. Along the way he discovers chilling parallels with his own family story and eventually realizes that the head he will bury is only symbolic. And yet its power as a metaphor remains. Using new ground breaking scholarship and working with a team of leading historians from across the country, The Head of Joaquin Murrieta provides a dissenting view of American history from a decidedly Chicano perspective. Deeply personal, irreverent and entertaining, the film tears open a painful and long ignored historical trauma that has never been explored on American television: the lynching of Mexican Americans in the west. duration 29:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
