    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5337H] * The standoff between Russia and the Ukraine government over the disputed Crimea region continues to intensify. This weekend citizens of Crimea will vote on a referendum to decide if they should secede from Ukraine and become part of Russia. In a sign of solidarity, President Obama hosted the acting Ukrainian prime minister at the White House on Wednesday and warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to end Russia's military incursion in Ukraine or "pay a cost." Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with Russia's foreign minister on Friday in an attempt to de-escalate the situation and stop the referendum. Indira Lakshmanan of Bloomberg News will have analysis of the eleventh-hour attempt by the U.S. and European allies to reach a diplomatic solution to end the crisis in Ukraine.
    * The Justice Department is investigating the stunning charges by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein that the CIA conducted unauthorized searches of Senate computers. During a nearly 50-minute speech on the Senate floor, Feinstein accused the CIA of interfering with the congressional investigation into the agency's possible use of torture. CIA Director John Brennan rejected the allegations and insisted the agency is fully cooperating with the congressional probe. Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post will have the latest on this escalating public dispute between Senator Feinstein and the agency she has long supported.
    * In Florida, Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win a special House election to succeed the late Rep. Bill Young (R). The victory has energized the GOP because Jolly focused much of his campaign on the promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act. For Democrats it was a sobering loss because the former lobbyist won in a district that Barack Obama carried in 2008 and 2012. Susan Davis of USA Today returns from Florida to explain why Republicans and Democrats can't agree on the national significance of this race heading into the 2014 midterms.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#120H] State Republican Convention Kicks Off and Will Affirmative Action Return to California Universities?
    California Republican Convention Kicks Off
    California Republicans have their work cut out for them as they gather this weekend in Burlingame for the state convention: they hold no statewide offices, their share of registered voters has shrunk to less than 30 percent and they have minimal power in Sacramento. The party's new chair, former State Senator Jim Brulte, wants to rebuild the GOP from the ground up, a job he says could take up to a decade.

    Guests:
    •Hector Barajas, GOP strategist
    •Scott Detrow, KQED Sacramento bureau chief

    Will Affirmative Action Return to California Universities?
    Since the passage of Proposition 209 in 1996, it has been illegal for California's public universities to consider race, ethnicity and gender during the admission process. Following the passage of the law, UC Berkeley saw a 49 percent drop in admission offers to African-American students, and other University of California schools saw the numbers of African-American, Latino and Native-American students decline. Now State Senator Ed Hernandez (D- West Covina) wants to amend parts of Prop 209. His measure passed the State Senate last January, and if passed by the Assembly, would be put before voters this November. It's been met with vocal opposition, particularly among Asian-Americans.

    Guests:
    •Ed Hernandez, State Senator (D- West Covina)
    •Emil Guillermo, Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund
    •Evan Low, Campbell city councilmember and former mayor
    •Aimee Allison, senior vice president of PowerPAC

    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.

    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
