    KQED NEWSROOM [#107H] Employees Push for Living Wage, 'Extreme by Design' and Remembering Nelson Mandela
    Employees Push for Living Wage
    Fast-food workers walked off the job in cities across the country and here in the Bay Area on Thursday, pushing for higher wages. As a nationwide movement to raise the minimum wage gains support from lawmakers and President Obama, critics of a wage hike say it would stifle business, kill jobs, inflate prices and hurt the very people it's intended to help.

    Guests:
    Ken Jacobs: Chair, UC Berkeley Labor Center
    Ron Unz: Chair, Higher Wages Alliance

    'Extreme by Design'
    The San Francisco Bay Area has long been known as an incubator of innovation. In some ways, the epicenter of that creativity is the Institute of Design at Stanford University. The "d.school" nurtures "outside the box thinking" in hopes of tackling some of the world's toughest problems. A new documentary film, "Extreme by Design," follows several Stanford graduate students as they attempt to create life-changing products for developing countries. Their approach, known as design thinking, challenges them to tackle problems like infant pneumonia deaths in Bangladesh and to build products with "extreme affordability." The film airs on KQED 9 on Wednesday, December 11 at 10 p.m.

    Guests:
    Ralph King: Co-Director, "Extreme by Design"
    Pamela Pavkov: Vice President, Jasper Ridge Partners

    Remembering Nelson Mandela
    Scott Shafer and Thuy Vu reflect on the death of Nelson Mandela and the role the Bay Area played in the anti-apartheid movement.

    Moyers & Company [#248H] Behind Washington's Closed Doors According to Mark Leibovich, Washington has worked for "a lot of people, a lot very good people, a lot of very bad people, and a lot of very mediocre people." And many who have made the town work for them. Reporting on Washington, DC, as chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine, Leibovich has written about the city's bipartisan lust for power, cash and notoriety. In his new book, This Town, he shares what the insiders of Washington are doing to the very notion of government of, by, and for the people, and details how Washington became an occupied city, its hold on reality distorted by greed and ambition. He pulls no punches and names names, revealing the movers and shakers and the deals they make, all in the name of crony capitalism. This week, Leibovich joins Bill Moyers to reveal what he has learned about a city where money rules and status is determined by who you know and what they can do for you. duration 52:46   STEREO TVRE

    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.
