    Washington Week [#5206H] New polls show the presidential race remains in a dead heat with fewer than 90 days until Election Day. A new set of New York Times/CBS News polls in 3 key swing states shows President Obama leading in Virginia and Wisconsin, but trailing in Colorado where Mitt Romney leads Obama 50%-45%. But when it comes to favorability, Mr. Obama holds a 13-point edge over Mr. Romney (53% to 40%) in the latest Washington Post/ABC News national survey.
    There are some mixed results among the polls, but most experts agree the election boils down to a handful of battleground states. That's why both campaigns are targeting key states and select groups of voters. Both candidates are out campaigning in crucial swing states like Iowa and Colorado hoping to convert undecided voters into full-fledged supporters. And Obama and Romney are both aiming their messages at the same group of voters: women and the working class.
    While the candidates continue their grassroots outreach with voters, outside political groups that support each candidate are raising eyebrows with their controversial ads about welfare and healthcare that have the Obama and Romney campaigns crying foul.
    Plus time is ticking down for Mitt Romney to announce his choice of a vice presidential running mate. We will examine the state of the 2012 presidential race with:
    Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times;
    Beth Reinhard of National Journal;
    and John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times.

BSO concerts at Tanglewood can be traced back to 1936, when the Tappan Family estate was donated to the orchestra. In 1937, the orchestra returned to perform an all-Beethoven program of concerts. In 1938, a fan-shaped shed was constructed with 5,100 seats, providing the BSO with a permanent open-air structure in which to perform. Two years later, BSO conductor Serge Koussevitzky initiated a summer school for young musicians, now known as the Tanglewood Music Center. Now, on the occasion of Tanglewood's 75th anniversary, GREAT PERFORMANCES presents this concert, featuring the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Pops, the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus under the batons of conductors John Williams, Keith Lockhart and Andris Nelsons; soloists include James Taylor, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianists Emanuel Ax and Peter Serkin, and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter. The program is wide-ranging and includes works by Tanglewood legends including Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein. duration 1:56:17   SRND51 TVG

    Happiness Advantage with Shawn Achor, The Positive psychology expert Shawn Achor demonstrates how to use the latest scientific research on happiness to find success in every aspect of our lives. Most people believe that once they land that long-awaited promotion, make more money, get their kids into the right schools, lose a few pounds, or find a meaningful relationship, then they'll be happy. But based on recent discoveries in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience, Achor shows us that that formula for happiness is wrong. In fact, it's backwards.

    It turns out, happiness actually fuels success, not the other way around.This is what Achor calls The Happiness Advantage. When we become more positive, our brain becomes more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient and productive. The result is an advantage over the entirety of our life - improving success at work, creating better health, better relationships with our loved ones, and creating a happier home.
