    Washington Week [#5138H] * Afghan President Hamid Karzai is demanding all foreign troops withdraw from villages and rural areas and return to their bases following the massacre of 16 civilians last weekend, allegedly by an American soldier. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is in Afghanistan trying to repair relations already damaged by two other recent incidents involving US troops - the burning of Qurans and soldiers urinating on Taliban corpses. Martha Raddatz of ABC News will report on the strained US relations and intensified calls for an early withdrawal of all foreign troops from Afghanistan.
    * The recent incidents in Afghanistan along with rising gas prices at home may be beyond President Obama's control, but both could have major implications on his re-election bid. Americans have soured on the war in Afghanistan and with three speeches in two weeks on energy the White House is clearly concerned about gas price hikes. Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics.com will take a closer look at how these issues may create an opening for Republicans this fall.
    * The Republican fight for the party's presidential nomination continues to be dogged. This week Rick Santorum scored double primary victories in Mississippi and Alabama yet Mitt Romney came away with more delegates after wins in Hawaii and American Samoa. Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post will examine what it will take for Santorum to seize greater momentum to overcome front-runner Romney's growing lead in delegates.

    Brain Fitness 2: Sight and Sound [#1] This program is designed to help people get the most from their senses as they age. It looks at the two important senses of vision and hearing, how they change throughout life, and what we can do to keep them healthy and fully functional. We know that we begin to experience decline in most cognitive functions in our 30s and 40s. As we grow older, the rate of decline increases, and the cumulative effects become more noticeable. We have increasing difficulty remembering, paying close attention, responding rapidly, performing complex tasks and our coordination and movement and many other cognitive functions that once came easily are now more difficult. But what we notice most is the difficulty hearing in a noisy place or seeing when we look at someone placed in front of a bright light, and we find that our reading slows. These are symptoms of elemental physical changes in the aging brain. The problem is more than just lapses in memory. This program is based on neuro-plasticity - the ability of the brain to change and adapt -- even rewire itself! It studies how we see and how that changes through life. Host: Dr. Michael Merzenich. duration 1:59:11   STEREO

    Il Volo Takes Flight In May 2009, three fresh-faced teenagers, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Ginaluca Ginoble appeared on the popular Italian talent show, Ti Lascio Una Canzone and dazzled television viewers with their flawless rendition of the Neapolitan standard "O Sole Mio." The boys who won the competition easily decided that their group needed a name. "Il Volo" meaning "flight" was chosen to signify the feeling that these three young tenors were about to spread their wings.
    The Italian teen vocal group took the audience by storm during the taping at the Detroit Opera House, singing classical and traditional Italian songs that showcased their vocal talent as well as their interpretive gifts for music. Their versions of "O Sole Mio," "Il Mondo," and "E Piu Ti Penso," a medley of Ennio Morricone songs from the soundtracks to (Once Upon a Time in America and Malena) and the Charlie Chaplin song, "Smile," brought the audience to their feet as they exploded with applause for these gifted performers. A touching moment came when the boys sang the popular Italian song, "Mamma," and Ignazio and Piero went into the audience to hug their tearful moms.
    Joining the tenors is Pia Toscano, a popular favorite from American Idol - Season 10, who joins the tenors to sing and dance to "La Luna Hizo Esto." Also performing is guitarist, Milos Karadaglic who boldly introduces the song "Granada."
