    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.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2426H] April 19, 2013 Guest Host: Joshua Johnson.
    News Panel:
    IMMIGRATION REFORM - As immigration reform legislation works its way through the US Senate, there's much at stake for two of California's leading industries - agriculture and technology. The bill, presented by a bipartisan group of lawmakers known as the "Gang of Eight," contains several controversial elements including a pathway to citizenship, new visa programs for low and high-skilled workers, changes to family-based visas and a greater emphasis on employment and education skills.
    CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT - CEQA may be in for an overhaul. The 43-year-old landmark law requires state and local agencies to identify and try to mitigate the environmental impacts of development and construction projects. Critics say the act has been abused by special interest groups, while supporters say environmental protections should not be watered down. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg is leading the reform effort, while Gov. Brown continues to weigh the likelihood of changing CEQA this year.
    CHEVRON REFINERY BLASTED - Chevron is under fire from the US Chemical Safety Board (CSB) for last summer's explosion at its Richmond refinery that left 15,000 residents and employees in need of medical care. The oil giant has been accused of negligence in its long-term plant maintenance, a problem seen at other refineries elsewhere. The results of the regulatory board's report will be presented at a public hearing in Richmond on April 19.
    Guests: Emil Guillermo, Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund; Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News; and Jaxon Van Derbeken, San Francisco Chronicle.
    GOV. BROWN ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND CHINA - Gov. Jerry Brown is calling his trade mission to China a success, after a whirlwind eight-day visit to six cities. But it was more than just business deals that Brown was after. The Governor worked to enlist China as a partner in California's fight against climate change. "No one group can solve the problem," Brown said. "Not the United States. Not California. Not Japan. Not China. We all have to do it." KXTV political editor John Myers looks at why the governor is bullish on the country's efforts, in this special report for KQED.
