    KQED NEWSROOM [#105H] Napolitano Outlines Vision for UC and New Study Examines California's Criminal Justice Experiment
    A Conversation With UC President Janet Napolitano
    In her first address to the University of California Board of Regents this week, UC President Janet Napolitano proposed freezing tuition and other reforms. The former U.S. Department of Homeland Security secretary and governor of Arizona sits down with Scott Shafer to discuss her vision for the 10-campus system and responds to criticism of her record on immigration.

    Further Reporting: For Napolitano, UC Could Be a Stepping Stone to California Politics

    Examining California's Criminal Justice Experiment
    Two years into California's massive criminal justice experiment dubbed "realignment," a new Stanford University study examines how the reforms are playing out across the state's 58 counties, many with different resources and distinct approaches. Since realignment went into effect, more than 100,000 prisoners have been diverted from state prisons to county jails or probation. While some law enforcement agencies report rising crime rates and a decline in public safety, other agencies say they have renewed their emphasis on rehabilitation.

    Sherlock Holmes [#407] The Last Vampyre - Part One It is nearing the end of the eighteenth century. At dead of night, a young girl Janet Burrows - blood pouring from a wound in her neck - is carried to the porch of the church in the village of Lamberley. After the villagers hear her dying screams, they run with their blazing torches to attack the village's grand mansion, consigning Lord St Clair, the aristocratic owner, to a fiery death in the collapsing ruins of his ancestral home. More than 100 years later, a tall figure drops a rose on to Janet Burrows' grave in Lamberley churchyard. He is John Stockton, a descendant of the fire's victim, who has recently arrived in the village, and is already a source of discomfort to the locals. His ancestors were deemed by the villagers to be vampires. The local vicar enlists Holmes and Watson to uncover a rational explanation for the unrest in the village. Roy Marsden (Foyle's War, "Inspector Adam Dalgliesh" in many P.D Jamesmysteries ) plays John Stockton. duration 1:14:40   STEREO TVG

    Moyers & Company [#245H] The Path of Positive Resistance * Between them, doctors Jill Stein and Margaret Flowers have been arrested 9 times. In the face of injustice and government by the 1%, rather than look the other way and stick to practicing medicine they chose a different approach.
    At first they took separate paths. Margaret Flowers fought for single payer health insurance. She works for the organization Physicians for a National Health Program and is a contributor to PopularResistance.org, a website advocating nonviolent direct action against injustice. Jill Stein advocated for campaign finance reform in her home state of Massachusetts, working in 1998 with others in her community to pass the Clean Election Law. She co-founded the Massachusetts Coalition for Healthy Communities in 2003 and represented the Green-Rainbow Party for governor in 2002, for State Representative in 2004 and for Secretary of State in 2006. She was the Green Party candidate for president in 2012.
    Now Stein and Flowers are both members of the Green Shadow Cabinet, a group of 100 prominent men and women offering alternative policy and speaking out in an organized voice against a dysfunctional government. Stein serves as president and Flowers as secretary of health. Each fights against political corruption and a host of grievances that that have led many people to cynicism and despair.
    This week, Bill Moyers speaks with Stein and Flowers about their personal journeys, what they have learned about our political system along the way and why they continue to fight the good fight. "Once you start speaking truth to power and standing up for the right things, it's very empowering," Margaret Flowers tells Bill. "After the Occupy movement disbanded and people kept saying, 'Oh, it's gone, it went away,' it didn't go away. It inspired others to stand up for their rights. So we see low wage workers all around the country standing up. And now states that are starting to raise their minimum wages. We see anti-foreclosure activists fighting back and people being able to stay in their homes. We see communities creating democratic economic institutions so that they can lift themselves out of poverty. These things are happening. They're not covered in the mass media. They're not funded by the big funders. But they're happening in this country. "
    * Also on the broadcast, Bill reports back on viewer response to our recent segments on drone attacks and government surveillance and previews the new film "Following the Ninth," a documentary exploring the worldwide cultural and political influence of Beethoven's masterpiece, the Ninth Symphony, and its majestic "Ode to Joy."

    BrainChange with David Perlmutter, MD This program reveals the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbohydrates on the human brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health. Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.
    The vast majority of us don't realize that our seemingly "healthy" daily habits are silently aggravating our nervous systems and setting us up for serious brain ailments. This program shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It's in the food you eat. Dr. Perlmutter, a leading international authority on nutritional medicine, has a disturbing yet empowering message: our brains are highly sensitive to certain proteins and sugars that are ubiquitous today - in our hand creams and organic ice creams, cocktails and coffees, multi-grain breads, whole fruits, and even brand name pharmaceuticals.
    Dr. Perlmutter shows us how to prevent, treat, and reverse a wide array of brain-related disorders by eliminating specific foods from our diets and making smarter lifestyle choices. His new book, Grain Brain, is the first book of its kind to explore the insidious role our highly touted low-fat, high-carb diets play in a host of neurological conditions.
    Dr. Perlmutter is both a board-certified neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He also runs his own private practice, The Perlmutter Health Center, in Naples, Florida.

    Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine with Lissa Rankin, MD This special is based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling book, Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof that Your Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. It is a meticulously researched explanation of the critical role our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs play in our health and wellbeing - and how we can harness the power of our minds to enjoy great health and longevity with specific, easy-to-do steps.
    Part 1 covers topics such as why Western medicine is very important; your brain is most important organ for your health; "Learned helplessness"; and asking what does your body need in order to heal?
    Part 2 includes an explanation of the placebo effect with examples; explanation of the nocebo effect and of the role the amygdala plays in the brain and how it controls stress; understanding how the body has its own self-repair mechanisms, which are under the influence of the nervous system; and why the body's self-repair mechanisms only work when the relaxation response is activated.
    Part 3 covers the importance of reducing stress response for self-healing and optimal health; Dr. Rankin's groundbreaking new wellness model: The Whole Health Cairn; why physical health is only one aspect of whole health; the difference between being healed and being cured; and healing ourselves, healing health care.
    Dr. Rankin is a trained ob-gyn who has emerged as one of the newest thought leaders in the mind/body medicine arena. Her work has been featured extensively in national media, including O magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Health, Women's Health, Self, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. She is also the founder of The Whole Health Medicine Institute, dedicated to teaching doctors how to provide truly integrative health and wellness to patients. Its Board includes Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Larry Dossey and Dr. Christiane Northrup, who says about Lissa, "What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine - the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well."
