    Moyers & Company [#203H] What's Fueling The Modern Abortion Debate? * This year marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that overturned many federal and state restrictions on a woman's right to an abortion. But while polls show that most Americans support the decision, and that a majority - for the first time - believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, anti-abortion forces show no sign of relenting. A study by the Guttmacher Institute reported that state legislatures passed 92 provisions restricting a woman's access to reproductive health care in 2011 - a number four times higher than the previous year.
    This week, Bill discusses the changing face of the reproductive rights movement and those it serves - as well as the success of social conservatives on the abortion front - with Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas, Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, and Lynn Paltrow, founder and Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women.
    * In a second segment, Bill talks to US Representative Peter Welch (D-VT) on the bipartisan bill to repeal the $500 million mysterious Congressional giveaway to the drug company Amgen.

So when he's accidentally given Henry's special coal, he doesn't stop. He hopes it'll make him go faster. Henry bravely puffs on with his ordinary coal. While Henry struggles with a clogged firebox, Gordon puffs across the island. Eventually Gordon's conscience gets the better of him and, just as he's about to finish his journey, he stops and puffs back to Henry. Gordon and Henry swap coal tenders. Gordon is very sorry to have taken Henry's coal, while Henry is sorry that Gordon couldn't set his record. Thomas is taking some holidaymakers on a sightseeing trip around the Island of Sodor. Gordon sniffs that he would be much faster, so Thomas sets out to prove that he's wrong. He races from location to location so fast that he leaves holidaymakers behind at each place! Bertie the bus sees what is happening and chases after Thomas, collecting the stranded passengers as he goes.

    Curious George [#402H] The Big Picture/Juicy George * The Big Picture - George loves imitating the Cerulean Warbler's distinct chirp and is aghast when the Man with the Yellow Hat tells him that his favorite bird is on the endangered species list. Not to worry, the Man just wrote a book to make people aware that the bird needs assistance. But unfortunately, stores don't want to carry the book because, at 1,400 pages, it looks like a boring scientific tome. Fortunately, George runs into Steve who has lots of idea for promoting his lemonade stand. This prompts George to come up with an idea of his own -- paint an empty billboard with a razzle-dazzle picture to help promote the book. Easier said than done and even when done, will it help sell the book and spread the bird word?
    * Juicy George - George has never seen a farmer's market before and finding one on his doorstep is just about the best thing ever -- until he drinks Juicy Jay's special blended juice and then that's the best thing ever! When the farmer's market leaves and there's no more juice, the Man with the Yellow Hat and George decide they need their own juicer. As they start to unpack their new purchase, the Man gets called away. A smart monkey can figure out a juicer on his own and recreate the special juice, right? It's certainly not as easy as it seems and certainly not a mess-free process! Although he has a few missteps (amazing how mushed vegetables can fly all the way to the ceiling), George masters the juicer. But will he be able to make the juice he and the Man think is the best ever?

The plasticity and capability of the brain has never been better understood. New research is revealing compelling findings that will change the way we think, interact and plan throughout our lives. As longevity and at the same time mental health issues are on the rise, our ability to impact the brain is also increasing. Yet these are the very early days, as some put it, of understanding "those three pounds of meat inside our heads". How can we apply the new brain science to our own lives, and how is neuroscience in the 21st century going to impact us all? Join ABC news correspondent Juju Chang and a panel of distinguished thought leaders and scientists to explore the brave new world of neuroscience and what it means for you and your family.
