    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5331H] Looking to re-energize his sluggish second term, President Obama called 2014 a 'year of action' in his State of the Union address on Tuesday. He urged Congress to be part of the action to help middle-class families, but vowed to sidestep their partisan politics through the use of executive orders to boost the economy and address income inequality.
    President Obama hit the road this week in a series of campaign-style events across America to reiterate his action agenda including a measure to raise the federal minimum wage and by signing an order to establish a savings program for employees without retirement plans.
    Even before the national address, House Speaker John Boehner warned the president not to act unilaterally. Boehner promised that the House GOP would monitor the president's actions and if they believe Mr. Obama is overreaching, he added "There are options that are available to us."
    Meanwhile House Republicans gathered in Maryland this week for their annual retreat to discuss how to rebuild America and let voters know they aren't only the opposition party, but also the alternative party.
    With just three years left in office, low approval ratings and determined opposition from Republicans, can Mr. Obama advance his modest priorities even if he can't crack through the divisions in Congress?
    Gwen Ifill will lead a roundtable discussion on the promises, politics and possible pitfalls of the president's 2014 action agenda with:
    John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News,
    Susan Davis of USA Today,
    Christi Parsons of Tribune Newspapers, and < br>Todd Purdum of Politico and Vanity Fair .

    KQED NEWSROOM [#114H] The Struggle Over Income Inequality, Napolitano Leads US Olympic Delegation and River Restoration Under Fire
    The Struggle Over Income Inequality
    President Obama made income inequality the cornerstone of his sixth State of the Union address this week, talking about ways to lift the middle class. But low-income families and individuals may face another hurdle. Annual cuts of $800 million to the federal food stamp program are expected as part of the new farm bill, which passed the House this week and moves on to the Senate on Monday.

    Guests:
    Tom Vacar, KTVU
    Joe Garofoli, San Francisco Chronicle
    Aimee Allison, senior vice president at PowerPAC

    Janet Napolitano Leads U.S. Olympic Delegation
    Next week University of California President Janet Napolitano will lead the U.S. delegation to the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. As former Secretary of Homeland Security, Napolitano is well suited to the job, given heightened concerns about terrorism at the Games and Russia's decision to grant asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The two countries are also at odds over Russia's harsh stance against LGBT rights, and the 10-member delegation that Napolitano is leading has three openly gay athletes, including tennis great Billie Jean King and ice skater Brian Boitano. Scott Shafer sat down with Napolitano to discuss the Olympics and her day job as head of UC.

    With Drought, River Restoration Under Fire
    Drought legislation introduced by Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of Tulare proposes pumping more water for farmlands from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. The bill also calls for a halt to the restoration of the San Joaquin River, which requires increased water flows to reintroduce chinook salmon cut off from stretches of the river for more than 50 years. Spencer Michels reports from the San Joaquin Valley on the restoration of California's second-longest river.

    Jesse Owens: American Experience On April 2, 1936, when the 22-year-old son of a sharecropper entered the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, he was, he later remembered, barely able to control his anger. "I was angry because of the insults that Hitler and the other German leaders had hurled at me and my Negro teammates on the Olympic squad." The young athlete would channel his raw emotions into some of the most remarkable achievements in the history of athletics, winning four gold medals. To tell the story of Owens' remarkable victories in the face of Nazi racism, this film begins in the poor Cleveland neighborhood where the young athlete grew up; details his early career; describes Adolf Hitler's outsized ambitions for the 1936 Olympics; explores the movement in Western democracies to boycott the event; and explains the pressures on Owens to attend. The film also reveals the unlikely relationship Owens struck up at the games with his German rival Carl "Luz" Long and shows that, in the end, despite his success in Germany, Owens struggled to find a place for himself in a United States that was still wrestling to overcome its own deeply entrenched racism. duration 56:11   STEREO TVPG-L (Secondary audio: DVI)
