    Moyers & Company [#205H] Who's Widening America's Digital Divide * America has a wide digital divide - high-speed Internet access is available only to those who can afford it, at prices much higher and speeds much slower in the US than they are around the world.
    But neither has to be the case, says Susan Crawford, former special assistant to President Obama for science, technology and innovation, and author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age. Crawford joins Bill to discuss how our government has allowed a few powerful media conglomerates to put profit ahead of the public interest - rigging the rules, raising prices, and stifling competition. As a result, Crawford says, all of us are at the mercy of the biggest business monopoly since Standard Oil in the first Gilded Age a hundred years ago. "The rich are getting gouged, the poor are very often left out, and this means that we're creating, yet again, two Americas, and deepening inequality through this communications inequality," Crawford tells Bill.
    * Also on the show, journalist Nick Turse describes his unprecedented efforts to compile a complete and compelling account of the Vietnam War's horror as experienced by all sides, including innocent civilians who were sucked into its violent vortex. Turse, who devoted 12 years to tracking down the true story of Vietnam, unlocked secret troves of documents, interviewed officials and veterans - including many accused of war crimes - and traveled throughout the Vietnamese countryside talking with eyewitnesses to create his book, Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam.

    Life of Mammals [#104Z] Chisellers Plants usually protect the goodness inside their seeds with very hard outer cases - as David Attenborough testifies after he has tried and failed to crack open a tropical nut by bashing it with a rock. 'Believe it or not,' he proclaims, 'there are mammals here in Panama which can break into these nuts with their bare teeth!'
    They are agoutis, terrier-sized rodents, which chisel through the rock hard shells with their remarkable front teeth, as if it was butter. The reward is a protein-rich kernel, and all rodents from the tiniest harvest mice to the mighty beaver, have these special, constantly growing inscisor teeth, with chisel sharp enamel on their front edges, in order to get at food of this kind.
    Many rodents, like squirrels, carry away excess nuts one by one to bury them for eating later on. But the seeds of plants in the Mojave desert are so tiny, that kangaroo rats use special cheek pouches, like shopping bags, to carry enough seeds back to their burrows. The Gambian pouched-rat has the largest pouches of all, so that when they're stuffed full of date palm nuts the rats can hardly squeeze through the entrance to their burrows!
    Some rodents use their special front teeth to chop off vegetation or chew bark instead. Canoeing in Wyoming, David Attenborough watches beavers fell massive trees with their front teeth and then build dams to rival anything that humans can achieve. In the deep cold-water ponds that are created, the beavers store branches and leaves underwater, so that even when its iced over they have a store of fresh food to take to the safety of their lodge throughout the winter. Naked mole rats stay underground all their lives finding roots and tubers by tunnelling hundreds of metres from their breeding chambers.
    Rodents are renowned for being prolific breeders and sometimes, in Australia, mice cause such plagues that the farms and are literally overrun by carpets of running mice! The largest rodents in the world, capybara, also occur in huge numbers on the swampy grasslands of South America. Grazing in great herds, they look remarkably reminiscent of the antelopes to be seen on the grassy plains of Africa, in the next programme.

    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)
