    ADD & Mastering It! From the team of comedians behind the ground breaking documentary ADD & Loving It!?! comes a new, entertaining and empowering film. Patrick McKenna and Rick Green make it clear that there is much that can be done to not just manage this disorder, but turn it to your advantage. The program goes through 36 practical tips for managing one's ADD or ADHD.
    The program is fast and funny. As adults with ADHD Patrick and Rick keep it light. The 36 Tips are specifically chosen to be ADHD/ADD-friendly. What works for most people is often counter-productive for ADDers. For example, meditation is challenging enough for the average person; for the ADDer it's daunting. But experts explain "the walking meditation," and Rick shows how to seize small moments throughout the day to recover and relax. Some of the tips are simple tricks that help focus and motivation: Choose Your Distraction, Chunk It Up, Keep Stuff Together.
    Backing up Patrick and Rick are many experts, who explain the neurology and psychology of this condition. The list of experts is a who's who of psychiatrists, psychologists and authors. From the opening moments of the film the viewer will be laughing and engaged - because that's how ADHD/ADD folks learn best.

In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46

We'll get their thoughts on the presidential race and on issues of importance to California voters.
    NEWS PANEL:
    DEFERRED DEPORTATION FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS - On Wednesday, the federal government launched a controversial program which would allow more than one million undocumented immigrants to live and work in the US legally, for 2 years. The program is open to people between the ages of 15 and 31 and who meet certain requirements, including continuous residency in the U.S. for the past 5 years.
    SF ETHICS COMMISSION AND ROSS MIRKARIMI - An Ethics Commission met one last time at San Francisco City Hall to hear closing arguments in the case against Ross Mirkarimi who has been suspended since March from his job as sheriff after he pleaded guilty to a domestic violence-related charge against his wife.

    Washington Week [#5207H] Mitt Romney's decision to pick Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate seems to have energized conservatives and even excited many liberals. The 7-term lawmaker is best known for his dramatic proposal to cut and transform government health and income security programs to balance the budget. Democrats believe Ryan exemplifies the distinct election-year choice voters will have to make between the Republican and Democratic visions about the size and role of the federal government.
    On the presidential campaign trail the rhetoric seemed to get louder and angrier as both candidates launched bus tours in key battleground states. During a 3-day trip to Iowa President Barack Obama talked about the need for drought relief and touted the benefits of renewable energy. Mitt Romney traveled to coal-rich eastern Ohio to talk about the importance of coal as one of the ways to make the US energy independent.
    Ryan faced tough questions about his proposed plan to reform Medicare which he says will protect and strengthen the program. The Obama campaign insists "it will end Medicare as we know it."
    But the debate over energy policy and Medicare was overshadowed by a firestorm Vice President Joe Biden ignited with his controversial comments suggesting Romney would put Americans "in chains."
    Is this negative war of words and remarkably nasty tone coming from both camps what voters can expect for the next 3 months until Election Day? Or will the upcoming conventions force both campaigns to refocus their attention to jobs, the weak economy, and a continuing war in Afghanistan?
    We will get analysis on the 2012 presidential race from Jackie Calmes of The New York Times, John Harris of Politico, and Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics.
