    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2439H] August 9, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    News Panel:
    RICHMOND FIGHTS FORECLOSURES - Taking the foreclosure crisis into its own hands, the city of Richmond is threatening an unprecedented use of eminent domain to bail out residents with underwater mortgages. The move is being contested vigorously by banks, but proponents say it would allow residents to refinance their homes at current market values and prevent future foreclosures. Eminent domain is the acquisition of private property for public use.
    UNION NEGOTIATIONS - The threat of a second strike by BART workers this summer and other labor disputes have sparked debate about the role of unions and employers in guaranteeing middle class compensation and benefits. AC Transit, Alameda County's public transportation authority, also narrowly averted a strike this week.
    CHEVRON FIRE ANNIVERSARY - Protesters marked the one year anniversary of a fire at the Chevron refinery in Richmond that sent more than 15,000 area residents to hospitals complaining of respiratory problems. The oil giant pleaded no contest to 6 criminal charges of violating labor and health codes and agreed to pay $2 million in fines and restitution. Meanwhile, the city of Richmond is suing Chevron over the August 6, 2012 explosion for "neglect...and corporate indifference."
    "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND" WAIVERS - San Francisco, Oakland, and six other California cities were granted waivers from the strict requirements and tough sanctions of the federal No Child Left Behind law. The school districts, which together encompass nearly one million students, have a year to re-allocate funding originally earmarked for tutoring and to implement an evaluation system that they proposed.
    Guests: Carolyn Said, San Francisco Chronicle; Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; David Baker, San Francisco Chronicle; and Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle.
    REMEMBERING ARTIST RUTH ASAWA - A look back at the life and work of pioneering Bay Area sculptor Ruth Asawa, who died this week at the age of 87. From KQED's archive, an excerpt from a 2005 Spark* profile showcases her creative process.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5306H] * In a rare diplomatic snub, the White House canceled next month's meeting between President Obama and Russian President Vladimir. The move follows Russia's decision to grant former NSA contractor Edward Snowden asylum. White House spokesperson Jay Carney said the lack of progress on other issues like missile defense and human rights also made it difficult to justify a 1-on-1 meeting. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times will examine the factors that have led to the broader deterioration of US-Russia relations.
    * Terror threats have kept US embassies in Middle Eastern and African countries closed all week. The US has launched drone attacks targeting militants in Yemen while Yemeni security announced they foiled a plot by Al Qaeda to attack fuel pipelines and two of the nation's ports. Martha Raddatz of ABC News will have the latest on the intercepted Al Qaeda communications that lead to the terror alert and evacuation of US diplomatic posts overseas.
