    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2324H] March 30, 2012 NEWS PANEL:
    * The Golden State continues to play a big role in election year fundraising as Rick Santorum channels Ronald Reagan at the Jelly Belly Factory, Mitt Romney racks up endorsements and cash from high-level California Republicans and First Lady Michelle Obama fetes big donors in San Francisco.
    * In a rare show of bipartisanship, Congress passes the JOBS Act; a package of measures easing financial regulations for "emerging growth" companies. The impact could be enormous for Silicon Valley start-ups and entrepreneurs.
    * During 3 days of US Supreme Court Hearings on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act tough questioning by justices raises the possibility the individual mandate may not stand. With the landmark decision expected in June, the political implications for the 2012 election are tremendous.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Michelle Quinn, Politico; and David Lazarus, Los Angeles Times.
    GLIDE HEALTH SERVICES - If the US Supreme Court rules the individual health insurance mandate constitutional, 6.9 million previously uninsured Californians are expected to flood the healthcare system in 2014. Glide Health Services, a community clinic in the heart of San Francisco's Tenderloin, provides primary care for some 3000 patients a year. Staffed almost exclusively by nurse practitioners, it's the largest clinic of its kind on the West Coast. Pat Dennehy, the clinic's director, is gaining national attention for her innovative approach to providing low-cost, high quality care at a time when the state of California needs all the options it can get.

    Washington Week [#5140H] After 3 days of public oral arguments, the Supreme Court justices will decide in private whether to strike down parts or even the entire landmark Affordable Care Act - what many consider the signature piece of legislation for President Obama. Among the key issues: does the government have the power to force people to buy health insurance and penalize those who choose not to? And could the justices selectively decide some parts of the law are unconstitutional while allowing other parts to stand, e.g., prohibiting insurance companies from denying coverage because of a pre-existing condition? Joan Biskupic of Reuters and Pete Williams of NBC News will have analysis of both sides of the debate.
    * The high court's ruling is likely to have political repercussions on the race for the White House. Rick Santorum held a news conference outside the courthouse to reiterate his opposition to the law and to take a swipe at Mitt Romney for enacting a similar health care law in Massachusetts while governor. Meanwhile Romney spent the week campaigning and picking up a number of endorsements including that of former President George H.W. Bush and Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a Tea Party favorite and possible running mate. Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times will look ahead to next week's presidential primaries and the latest wave of calls from GOP leaders to unite behind Romney as the party's nominee.
    * President Obama traveled to South Korea this week for a summit on nuclear security. The two main issues were North Korea's threat to expand its nuclear weapons capability and Iran's continuing defiance of international demands to suspend its nuclear program. But it was the private comments President Obama made to outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that were picked up by a live microphone that grabbed the biggest international headlines. Julianna Goldman of Bloomberg News will report on President Obama's meetings with the leaders of Russia, China, Turkey and Pakistan.

    Great Performances [#3707H] San Francisco Symphony at 100 In 2011-12, the San Francisco Symphony will celebrate its centennial season. From the ashes of the great San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906 rose the passionate desire of a community to embrace music and build an orchestra to restore its spirit. Thus the San Francisco Symphony was born a few years later, and it has spanned the past century to become a cultural gem in one of the most interesting and progressive cities in America and the world. In September 2011, GREAT PERFORMANCES partnered with the Symphony for a centennial gala concert program hosted by acclaimed writer and San Francisco native Amy Tan, featuring SFS Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas along with guest artists Itzhak Perlman and Lang Lang performing works by Copland, Mendelssohn and Britten. Concert footage is interwoven with short video stories highlighting unique moments in the Symphony's history as well as interviews with the performers and luminaries in the audience. duration 1:56:46   SRND51 TVG

    * Then, in a special collaboration with PBS' The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, we investigate how the current economy is affecting artists in the Bay Area. How are they coping with the economic downturn? Some scholars and activists think hope lies in government support. What can we learn from the historic WPA programs that provided employment for 8.5 Million Americans during the 1930's?

    Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#713H] Liquid Gold Rick and his daughter, Lanie, check out a fabulous fish fillet at a neighborhood restaurant in Mexico City, and then, at a seafood street stall, they get rapturous over a plate of succulent garlicky prawns that rivals the best scampi in the world. The common denominator of these two dishes? It's one of the cornerstones of Mexican cooking, Mojo de Ajo (literally, "bath of garlic") - a sauce made by slowly simmering garlic in olive oil and seasoning it with lime and chiles. Back home in Chicago, Rick shows us how he plants, grows and cures this flavorful garlic variety, then uses some to make a big batch of Mojo de Ajo - a jar of "liquid gold" to keep on hand for enhancing just about anything. First, he uses some of it to make Mixiotes of Woodland Mushrooms with Slow-Cook Garlic and Mexican Herbs, bathed in mojo and baked in parchment. Then Lanie uses a little more to make her favorite snack, fresh-popped Garlicky Popcorn with Mexican Queso Anejo "buttered" with mojo and sprinkled with chile powder. Now it's Rick's turn to whip up a quick Seared Fish Fillets in Fruity, Nutty, Garlicky Mojo. And finally, Lanie helps him make a favorite family specialty: Garlicky Linguine with Seared Shrimp, Chipotle and Mexican Aged Cheese. It all adds up to this: a splash of mojo de ajo can be the Midas touch that turns just about any ingredient into culinary gold. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
