    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2437H] July 19, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    News Panel:
    JANET NAPOLITANO - Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has been confirmed as president of the University of California, making her the first female to head the UC system in its 145-year history. Confirmation proceedings were marked by student protests at the UC Board of Regents meeting in San Francisco. Opponents are voicing concerns over Napolitano's lack of experience in academia and her immigration policies. Supporters defend the unusual pick, citing her ability to manage a complex system and to meet the political demands of the job.
    PG&E PENALTY - Taking a tough stance on PG&E for the 2010 San Bruno pipeline explosion, the Public Utilities Commission has proposed a hefty penalty to go toward pipeline safety improvements and a fine to be paid to the state. The utility company says the fine will limit its ability to pay for improvements to safety.
    RICHMOND RAPE VERDICTS - Guilty verdicts for two of the men accused in the 2009 gang rape of a 16-year old girl outside a Richmond High School dance brings some closure for the brutal crime that drew national attention. How has the school and the community addressed the issue of violence and attempted to move forward?
    Guests: Ana Tintocalis, KQED News; Jaxon Vanderbeken, San Francisco Chronicle; and Aimee Allison, San Francisco Department on the Status of Women.
    EVA PATERSON ON RACIAL PROFILING AND THE TRAYVON MARTIN CASE - The acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin has sparked strong reaction, from Florida to California. The verdict, which coincided with the opening of the feature film "Fruitvale Station" about the killing of Oscar Grant by a BART police officer in 2009, struck a nerve in the Bay Area. It also cast a renewed spotlight on "stand your ground" laws, which allow people to defend themselves with deadly force if they feel threatened. Eva Paterson, president of the Equal Justice Society, discusses the lasting impact of these cases.

    Moyers & Company [#228H] A New Case for Gun Control * The death of Trayvon Martin has ignited debate not just over our justice system, but on legislation such as the "stand your ground" laws that contributed to the tragic result. This week, Bill talks with author and gun control advocate Tom Diaz about how a lethal combination of self-defense laws and concealed carry laws - championed by the NRA and the gun industry - dilutes our legal protections against gun violence. He warns that the genie is out of the bottle and we should be gravely concerned about the unrelenting marketing of guns. Diaz's latest book is The Last Gun: How Changes in the Gun Industry Are Killing Americans and What It Will Take to Stop It.
    * Also on the show, a hard look at the plight of the men and women who bend to the earth in backbreaking labor, picking fruits, vegetables, and tobacco. Despite miracles of agricultural progress and innovation over the decades, the harsh lives and working conditions of migrant laborers have changed very little. Their cause has been championed in the past by Edward Murrow, Cesar Chavez, and the United Farmworkers, but that list is incomplete without Baldemar Velasquez. Velasquez was among hundreds of thousands of children who joined their migrant parents working long hours in the fields. Inspired by that early experience, Velasquez founded the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) in 1967. A 1989 MacArthur Fellow, Velasquez joins Bill to talk about the ongoing David vs. Goliath struggles to ensure fairness for American farmworkers.
