    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2438H] August 2, 2013 Guest Host: Scott Shafer.
    IMMIGRATION REFORM - Silicon Valley leaders and California Republicans are calling on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Citing family values, entrepreneurship and faith, major GOP donors and high tech CEOs are weighing in on the debate and pressing for decisive action.
    BART NEGOTIATIONS - BART and its unions continue negotiations as the threat of a strike looms. After a 4 1/2 day walk-out in July, Gov. Brown ordered both sides back to the bargaining table, but they appear to remain split over salaries and benefits. Commuters and transit agencies are preparing for a potential shut down Monday morning.
    OAKLAND SURVEILLANCE - Against protests by civil rights activists and privacy advocates, the Oakland City Council has unanimously approved a controversial surveillance center. They say the ability to continuously monitor video surveillance will help police respond to emergencies and make Oakland safer. Critics say the Domain Awareness Center could threaten civil liberties and turn Oakland into a police state.
    FBI BUST - In one of the biggest nationwide busts of child sex trafficking, the FBI has rescued 105 youth and arrested more than 100 alleged pimps. The FBI designated the Bay Area as a top hot spot for child sex trafficking; of the 76 cities included in the bust, the highest number of children were rescued in San Francisco, and the second-highest number of pimps were arrested.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Tom Vacar, KTVU; Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Aimee Allison, San Francisco Department on the Status of Women.

    New Tricks [#303] Old Dogs A spate of violent dog killings 30 years ago provoked an outcry from the public, but the investigating team was never able to identify the killer. When a dog is found dead on Hampstead Heath, with the same MO as the original killings, the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad (UCOS) is asked to re-examine the case: no-one else in the Force wants to know. Reluctantly, Pullman and her team pick up the baton. Standing and Lane set off to visit the original suspect, John Fletcher, who works at a local abattoir. Much to dog-loving Lane's disgust, Fletcher does nothing to disguise his hatred of man's best friend, which is all Lane needs to convince him that this must be their man. There is a pattern in the killings. Pullman and Halford visit James Farlow, a canine protection society field officer at the time of the original killings, who is now preoccupied with nursing his dying wife. Halford sympathizes - a dangerous thing to do in any investigation: will he take his eye off the ball and allow emotion to cloud his judgment? Farlow recalls that one of the dog owners during the original investigation had made an unusual request. When the team visits the dog owner, Professor Styles, a "blue stocking" museum curator and expert in Egyptology, they make an alarming discovery. Lane, already struggling to cope with the cruelty of the killings, is left shattered when his own dog, Scruffy, dies. Pullman insists he take compassionate leave. However, it is Halford's deteriorating health that causes the team to really worry. James Farlow is also sympathetic and he knows just the thing to make Halford feel better. duration 50:08   STEREO

    Moyers & Company [#229H] John Lewis Marches On This week, two icons of the 60's civil rights era - Bill Moyers and Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) - meet to share experiences and revelations about the momentous March on Washington which they both attended 50 years ago.
    Their discussion takes them to the spot in front of the Lincoln Memorial where Lewis, Martin Luther King, Jr., Bayard Rustin, Roy Wilkins, and others famously spoke about freedom and justice, creating critical momentum for both the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. While there, Moyers and Lewis attract the attention of schoolchildren, and conduct a spontaneous living history lesson.
    The March on Washington is largely remembered for King's "I Have a Dream" speech. The 23-year-old Lewis, newly named to lead the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, was the youngest of the featured speakers, but among the most defiant.
    Now a 14-term congressman from Georgia, Lewis shares new insight into how the event unfolded - including last-minute conflicts over his own manuscript. He also discusses the continuing challenges to racial and economic equality, and his unwavering dedication to nonviolence and brotherly love as a means toward a more just end - even when facing inevitable violence and brutality.
    "To look out and see the best of America convinced me more than anything else that this is the product, this is the work of the movement," Lewis tells Moyers. "Sometimes you have to not just dream about what could be - you get out and push and you pull and you preach. And you create a climate and environment to get those in high places, to get men and women of good will in power to act."
    Threading rarely-seen documentary footage into their conversation, Moyers - who was deputy director of the newly-created Peace Corps at the time - also shares his own memories of the day. He concludes with an essay about how the pursuit of equal rights and opportunities for all Americans - so championed at the March on Washington - continues to be thwarted.

    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.

    Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii Elvis Presley made television and entertainment history with this TV concert special. The performance took place at the Honolulu International Center Arena in Hawaii on January 14, 1973. At 12:30am Hawaiian time, the concert was beamed live via Globecam Satellite to Australia, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, The Philippines, South Vietnam and other countries. It attracted 37.8% of the viewers in Japan, 91.8% in the Philippines, 70% in Hong Kong, and 70-80% of the viewers in Korea. It was seen on a delayed basis in approximately 30 European countries later the same day.
    It did not air in the US until April 4th, when an edited version of the concert, expanded with songs videotaped just after the live event, was presented on NBC. That broadcast attracted 51% of the television viewing audience. In all, it was seen in about 40 countries by 1-to-1.5 billion people. A global smash. Entertainment events presented live via satellite are common today but, in 1973, this was a first. Never before had one performer held the world's attention in such a way. This special presents Elvis Presley at the pinnacle of his superstardom, giving one of the most outstanding concert performances of his career.
