    Sesame Street [#4314H] Sesame Street-O-Saurus Grover, Elmo, and Rosita are imaging that they are Paleontologists, scientists who dig through dirt and stones to find fossils. Chris explains that fossils are what are left of a plant or an animal that lived a long time ago. The first thing they find in the dirt is a colorful, metal soup ladle which Grover thinks is a bone from a dinosaur. Next, they find two clothespins that Grover believes came from dinosaurs, as well. Elmo and Rosita find a bunch of other things, too. Chris breaks the news to them that these things are not fossils, because not everything old that is found in the dirt is a fossil. Grover is disappointed that they have zero fossils and that he won't be able to build a dinosaur out of what they found. Elmo suggests that they build a dinosaur even without fossils. Chris adds that they can use what they found in the dirt to build a dinosaur model. First, they can design a model, which means to think about and plan to put something together in a certain way before you build it. Elmo thinks the ladle looks like a dinosaur's head, Rosita thinks the spring looks like a dinosaur's tail, Grover thinks keys look like a dinosaur's arms, the spoons and clothespins could be legs and feet, and the xylophone could be the dinosaur's body. Then, they put it all together and create their very own dinosaur model. They decide to name it Barbara! duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

After learning about how to make one on the internet, Chris, Allen, and Telly are able to construct a guitar out of a paper towel tube, transparent tape, rubber bands, a pencil, and a tissue box.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2439H] August 9, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    News Panel:
    RICHMOND FIGHTS FORECLOSURES - Taking the foreclosure crisis into its own hands, the city of Richmond is threatening an unprecedented use of eminent domain to bail out residents with underwater mortgages. The move is being contested vigorously by banks, but proponents say it would allow residents to refinance their homes at current market values and prevent future foreclosures. Eminent domain is the acquisition of private property for public use.
    UNION NEGOTIATIONS - The threat of a second strike by BART workers this summer and other labor disputes have sparked debate about the role of unions and employers in guaranteeing middle class compensation and benefits. AC Transit, Alameda County's public transportation authority, also narrowly averted a strike this week.
    CHEVRON FIRE ANNIVERSARY - Protesters marked the one year anniversary of a fire at the Chevron refinery in Richmond that sent more than 15,000 area residents to hospitals complaining of respiratory problems. The oil giant pleaded no contest to 6 criminal charges of violating labor and health codes and agreed to pay $2 million in fines and restitution. Meanwhile, the city of Richmond is suing Chevron over the August 6, 2012 explosion for "neglect...and corporate indifference."
    "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND" WAIVERS - San Francisco, Oakland, and six other California cities were granted waivers from the strict requirements and tough sanctions of the federal No Child Left Behind law. The school districts, which together encompass nearly one million students, have a year to re-allocate funding originally earmarked for tutoring and to implement an evaluation system that they proposed.
    Guests: Carolyn Said, San Francisco Chronicle; Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; David Baker, San Francisco Chronicle; and Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle.
    REMEMBERING ARTIST RUTH ASAWA - A look back at the life and work of pioneering Bay Area sculptor Ruth Asawa, who died this week at the age of 87. From KQED's archive, an excerpt from a 2005 Spark* profile showcases her creative process.
