    Washington Week [#5209H] A day after the Republican National Convention wraps in Tampa, Gwen Ifill travels to Charlotte, North Carolina for a special Election 2012 edition of Washington Week.
    All week a parade of past, present and future Republican party leaders stepped up to the podium at the GOP convention in Tampa to lay out the conservative case for why America needs a new direction and why Mitt Romney is the man for the job.
    The former Massachusetts governor accepted the Republican Party's nomination during a primetime speech Thursday night. Romney was expected to dissect President Obama's record and explain how his administration would "turnaround" America. On Wednesday night Romney's running mate Paul Ryan energized the convention hall with a rousing speech where he talked about the Obama administration's policy failings and how Mitt Romney would not duck the tough issues as commander in chief.
    Next week the political attention shifts to Charlotte where Democrats open their own convention. There President Obama will present his case to America about why he and Vice President Joe Biden deserve a second term and why the Romney-Ryan ticket is the wrong choice for America.
    The president spent this week monitoring Hurricane Isaac and the situation in the storm-ravaged Gulf. He also held rallies in 3 battleground states targeting his message to young people and talking about the important choice voters will have to make in November. In 2008 the college vote helped Obama win the White House.
    Joining Gwen Ifill in Charlotte this week:
    Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times;
    Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post;
    John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times;
    And Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics.

    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.

His songs have set a virtually unmatched standard in their seriousness and range. Sex, spirituality, religion, power - he has relentlessly examined the largest issues in human lives, always with a full appreciation of how elusive answers can be to the vexing questions he raises.
    But those questions, and the journey he has traveled in seeking to address them, are the ever-shifting substance of his work, as well as the reasons why his songs never lose their overwhelming emotional force. Documentaries, awards, tribute albums and the ongoing march of artists eager to record his songs all acknowledge the peerless contribution Cohen has made to what one of his titles aptly calls "The Tower of Song."
