    News Panel:
    LEGISLATIVE ROUNDUP - Lawmakers in Sacramento spent the week scrambling to get through about 400 bills before the end of the legislative session on Friday. Among the most notable is the governor's $315 million plan to ease prison crowding due to a federal court order. Also on the table were bills increasing the minimum wage, expanding immigrant rights, reducing penalties for drug possession and tighter restrictions on guns. The closely watched bill to regulate fracking was criticized by environmental groups, who say it doesn't go far enough.
    NSA SECRECY CHALLENGED - Amidst continuing concerns about their role in NSA surveillance programs, internet giants including Google and Microsoft are challenging the secrecy that surrounds the surveillance orders they receive. Yahoo and Facebook have joined Google and Microsoft in filing lawsuits at the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, seeking permission to disclose more information about their participation in the NSA's data gathering efforts.
    ELDER ABUSE - An investigation of the California Department of Public Health reveals that the agency is failing to pursue cases of alleged abuse against some of the state's most vulnerable people, including elderly patients receiving in-home care or living in nursing homes. Instead, the agency is quietly and quickly closing cases after only minimal investigation.
    Guests: Scott Detrow, KQED News; Michelle Quinn, Politico, and Mina Kim, KQED News

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5311H] It has been a whirlwind week for developments surrounding President Obama's attempts to take action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for alleged chemical weapons attacks in that 2-year civil war.

All this comes after a full court press by President Obama to garner support for military action; Assad's hour-long interview on PBS; and Russia President Vladimir Putin chastising the US in a New York Times Op-Ed.
    Joining Gwen Ifill for perspective and analysis are: Peter Baker of The New York Times, Martha Raddatz of ABC News, Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post, and James Kitfield of National Journal.

    Gloria Estefan: The Standards Over the course of her illustrious career, 7-time Grammy-Award winning international superstar Gloria Estefan has recorded many classics from the American Songbook and collaborated with musical icons such as Frank Sinatra, BB King, Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras and most recently, with the legendary Tony Bennett. It's been a lifelong dream of Gloria's to record an entire album of standards - songs that have a very special meaning in her life. "I personally chose some of the most beloved songs of all time, songs that spoke to me personally," says Gloria. "We recorded the album live in the studio with a core group of four incredibly talented musicians, all maestros of this genre and a wonderful orchestra. Something really special happens when musicians record together live - it was magical and this PBS special will actually be the first time that I'm performing these songs live in concert."
    On her new album, simply titled Gloria Estefan: The Standards, she recorded songs that were written by some of the most prolific songwriters like Jerome Kern, Chaplin and Gershwin. Featured on the album are Grammy-Award winning Laura Pausini, Joshua Bell and saxophone great, Dave Koz, who will also perform on the PBS concert special. Estefan said: "This Standards album and concert special bring everything full circle for me. It has been a labor of love in so many ways and has allowed me to record and perform these classic songs - in a new and modern way."
    Gloria will perform The Standards with the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra, led and conducted by Grammy-Award nominee Shelly Berg, at the renowned New World Center. Gloria personally selected some of her all-time favorite songs, from the Billie Holiday classic "Good Morning Heartache" and her adaptation of Chaplin's "Smile," to the first song she sang with Emilio and the Miami Latin Boys, "What a Difference a Day Makes," and her wedding song, "El Dia Que Me Quieras," which for the first time was translated into English as "The Day You Say You Love Me." Gloria's signature and distinctively sultry contralto voice perfectly embraces some of the most recognizable and beloved tunes from musical eras in this unforgettable intimate performance.
