    National Parks: America's Best Idea [#103H] The Empire of Grandeur (1915-1919) In the early 20th century, America has a dozen national parks, but they are a haphazard patchwork of special places under the supervision of different federal agencies. The conservation movement, after failing to stop the Hetch Hetchy dam, pushes the government to establish one unified agency to oversee all the parks, leading to the establishment of the National Park Service in 1916. Its first director, Stephen Mather, a wealthy businessman and passionate park advocate who fought vigorously to establish the NPS, launches an energetic campaign to expand the national park system and bring more visitors to the parks. Among his efforts is to protect the Grand Canyon from encroaching commercial interests and establish it as a national park, rather than a national monument. duration 1:53:21   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

The parade continues, and up next is a float, the Maysour, but the float looks too nice with all of its jewels, flowers, and brightly colored paints. Alan suggests spraying the float with water because water can change how things look. The float is now one big, wet mess with wilted flowers, jewels blown off, and running paint. The parade continues again, and Stenchy the Stinkbug balloon comes by. The balloon is floating in the sky, though, and Grouch balloons are supposed to drag along the ground.

Oscar suggests using water again, and after filling up the balloon, it is now dragging on the ground and ends up soaking everyone.

    Moyers & Company [#237H] Inequality for All This week marks both the 5th anniversary of the fiscal meltdown that almost tanked the world economy and the 2nd anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, the movement that sparked heightened public awareness of income inequality. Yet the crisis is worse than ever - in the first 3 years of the recovery, 95% of the economic gains have gone only to the top 1% of Americans. And the share of working people in the US who define themselves as lower class is at its highest level in 4 decades.
    More and more are fighting back. According to Robert Reich, Bill Clinton's Secretary of Labor: "The core principle is that we want an economy that works for everyone, not just for a small elite. We want equal opportunity, not equality of outcome. We want to make sure that there's upward mobility again, in our society and in our economy."
    Reich joins Moyers this week to discuss a new film, Inequality for All, opening in theatres across the country next week. Directed by Jacob Kornbluth, the film aims to be a game-changer in our national discussion of income inequality. Reich, who Time magazine called one of the best cabinet secretaries of the 20th century, stars in this dynamic, witty, and entertaining new film. Reich, a professor at UC Berkeley, is the author of 13 books, including The Work of Nations, available in 22 languages; Aftershock and Supercapitalism, both best sellers; and his latest, Beyond Outrage: What Has Gone Wrong with Our Economy and our Democracy, and How to Fix It.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2444H] August 23, 2013 OAKLAND TRIES TO EVEN THE ODDS FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN BOYS
    In a collaboration between KQED and the San Francisco Chronicle series Even Odds, we offer an in-depth look at the daunting challenges faced by African American males in Oakland, and the city's attempt to address them. 3 years ago, the Oakland Unified School District faced an alarming statistic - more than half of its African American boys would not graduate. The troubling dropout rate had many factors at play: poverty, crime, high suspension rates and rising absenteeism. The district responded by opening the Office of African American Male Achievement. Its mission is to improve academic outcomes for black boys by pairing them with black men. While race-based, community mentorship is not new, for a public school system it was controversial. The early results are encouraging, but it remains to be seen whether this novel approach will actually work. The program begins with a documentary segment, followed by a panel discussion. Host: Joshua Johnson.
    Guests: Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle; Tiago Robinson, Oakland High School; Pedro Noguera, New York University.
