    Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose "New Zealand: Quest for Kaitiakitanga" Richard travels to the southernmost reaches of civilization to uncover New Zealand's pristine natural beauty, alluring culture and enigmatic mythology. He traverses the most physically and climatically diverse landmass in Polynesia in the pursuit of an age-old Maori tradition. Bangs seeks answers to questions rooted in indigenous wisdom, hoping to unearth the meaning and origins of "kaitiakitanga," the responsibility of human beings to protect the natural world. Today's Kiwis believe the knowledge of the ancients may hold a key to the planet's survival.
    Bangs begins his 1000-mile trek in Mt. Aspiring National Park, where he navigates north to the Franz Joseph Glacier and then to the east coast town of Kaikoura. From there, he crosses the Cook Strait to the North Island and the capital city of Wellington. He next visits the Taupo region, heads to Hokianga Harbor, and finally makes his way to Cape Reinga on the upper tip of New Zealand, where he encounters the great tangled "spirit tree" of Maori myth.

Eager to fling herself into the cut and thrust of Carsely village life once more, Agatha Raisin is among their number.

    When Amanda's body is found hanging from the bell ropes of the church in the dead of night, Agatha suspects there may be more to the case than routine suicide. Although Amanda was a spendthrift who'd amassed a great deal of debt, she seemed perfectly happy on the day of her death and in the prime of her life. Finding her suspicions falling on deaf ears, Agatha enlists cleaner Gemma Simpson and former assistant Roy Silver to help her investigate the crime - leading her to confront Jez, who may be harboring a secret, as well as Amanda's ties to her ex-husband in Bristol.

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

You have to laugh, she tells the road-trippers, and thrive from adversity; take a real look at the opportunities that are presented to you, and say yes as often as you can.
    From there, the road-trippers head to Detroit, MI, where they encounter one of the renegade artists who is taking back the city. Spoken word poet Airea Dee Matthews urges the road-trippers to find rebirth in collapse. In the mostly abandoned city, the artists of Detroit don't see decay, but possibility. The road-trippers see the decay for themselves when they tour an abandoned building and experience the sense of freedom and energy that drives the artists' push for regeneration.

After interviewing Professor David Stovall, Tele'jon sees that David shares his concerns about access and privilege, and uses his position to create change.
