    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2435H] June 28, 2013 Guest Host: Scott Shafer.
    News Panel:
    GAY MARRIAGE VICTORIES - Gay rights advocates celebrated historic victories this week when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and also upheld a lower court ruling finding California's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. The two rulings will have major legal ramifications at both the federal and state level. What do the court's decisions mean and when will gay couples be allowed to legally marry in California? Also, how do the SCOTUS rulings on affirmative action and voting rights impact California?
    PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CLIMATE PLAN - President Obama this week called for sweeping executive action to combat the effects of climate change before a cheering crowd of environmentalists in Washington, D.C. One major proposal is modeled after California's ambitious climate change goals and pushes for a national cap-and-trade bill. Other initiatives include eliminating tax loopholes for big oil and creating policies that address the impact of severe weather.
    POSSIBLE BART STRIKE - Members of BART's two largest unions have voted to authorize a strike which could result in transit chaos for thousands of commuters as early as next Monday. Fears are building that train operators, station agents and maintenance workers could walk off the job if a deal is not reached by Sunday. Negotiations between the union and BART management have broken down over wages, health and retirement benefits, and safety issues.
    Guests: Vik Amar, UC Davis School of Law; Paul Rogers, SJ Mercury News; Michael Cabanatuan, SF Chronicle.

    Moyers & Company [#225H] The Faces of America's Hungry * Here in the richest country on earth, 50 million of us - 1 in 6 Americans - go hungry. More than a third of them are children. And yet Congress can't pass a Farm Bill because our representatives continue to fight over how many billions to slash from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as food stamps. The debate is filled with tired cliches about freeloaders undeserving of government help, living large at the expense of honest, hardworking taxpayers. But a new documentary, A Place at the Table, paints a truer picture of America's poor.
    This week Kristi Jacobson, one of the film's directors and producers, and Mariana Chilton, director of the Center for Hunger-Free Communities, join Bill to break these stereotypes apart and share how hunger hits hard at people from every walk of life. The story of American families facing food insecurity is as frustrating as it is heartbreaking, because the truth is as avoidable as it is tragic.
    "If we could think about poverty during childhood as a type of a disease, if we could pay as much attention to poverty for children as we pay attention to infectious disease, we might be able to do something in this country," Chilton explains to Bill.
    * Also, on the program, journalist Greg Kaufmann - who's dedicated himself to the beat of poverty, food and politics - talks about the need to meet and accurately understand Americans in poverty to truly help them. A frequent contributor for The Nation, Kaufmann claims that the poor have been stereotyped and demonized in an effort to justify huge cuts in food stamps and other programs low-income Americans rely on to survive.
    "People are working and they're not getting paid enough to feed their families, pay their utilities, pay for their housing, pay for the healthcare," Kaufmann tells Bill. "50% of the jobs in this country pay less than $34,000 a year. 25% pay less than the poverty line for a family of 4 - which is $23,000 a year. So if you're not paying people enough to pay for the basics, they're going to need help getting food."

    Curious George [#208] Free Hundley/Bag Monkey * Free Hundley: If there ever was a dignified dog, it was Hundley. But once flea season begins Hundley's dignity goes right out the window -right along with his collar! - which lands him in the local pet shelter. While a caring stranger and friendly shelter director make Hundley a new home, George, Gnocchi and Charkie join forces to try and rescue the dapper dachshund and return him to his old life. Will the furry crew be able to follow an organized plan and free their friend - or will the trio find themselves under lock and key right along with Hundley? Educational Objective: To demonstrate that people plan in order to get things done. To understand that systems have parts that work together to accomplish a goal.
    * Bag Monkey: Just putting his toys away in an organized manner is a challenge for George - so he faces an incredible test when he represents the City Grocer in the local "Bag Olympics" for bagging groceries! Toys are one thing, but fitting canned ham, eggs and paper towels neatly into the same bag may prove too tall an order - especially with the overly confident Rodney from Large Mart packing in the next corner. But then again, if George can practice at home by fitting together the shapes of his stuffed camel and muscle man together, what's a little salami and cheese? Educational Objective: To explore how simple shapes can be assembled into more complex shapes.
