    PBS NewsHour [#11462] * #DemDebate - While Republican presidential hopefuls made tracks around South Carolina, the Democratic candidates prepared to meet for the debate hosted by PBS in Milwaukee. Political director Lisa Desjardins offers a rundown of Thursday's campaigning, and Hari Sreenivasan previews the debate with Tamara Keith of NPR and Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report.
    * IVF Puppies - As the conservationist community struggles to address extinction brought on by climate change and habitation loss, a recent innovation has given new hope for some endangered wolf species. The first ever litter of puppies conceived by in vitro fertilization was born in July, and researchers say they can help save the rest of the pack. Science producer Nkisan Akpan reports.
    * Five Years On - Egypt's judiciary, once renowned as fiercely independent, now faces criticism for its lack of transparency and draconian measures against political dissidence, including mass death sentences and military trials of civilians. But both critics and supporters agree that any hope for political change rests in the hands of the court system. Special correspondent Nick Schifrin reports from Cairo.
    * Ripples In Time - LIGO, an NSF-funded team of international physicists, announced today that they have confirmed the existence of gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of spacetime that are a key postulate of Einstein's century-old theory of general relativity. The discovery was made by recording two black holes colliding a billion light-years from Earth. Hari Sreenivasan talks to Dave Reitze of the California Institute of Technology.
    * Making Sense - These days we turn to online dating to give us more options for a love affair or a life partner. But how do you maximize your chances of hitting the jackpot? Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports explores how the language of economics can apply to the language of love.
    * NewsHour Bookshelf - Established by the U.N. in 1991 to house Somalis fleeing their civil war, the Dadaab refugee camp complex in eastern Kenya is the largest in the world. Some call it a humanitarian crisis, others a nursery for terrorists, but to its half-million residents, it is both their last resort and their home. Judy Woodruff talks to Ben Rawlence, author of "City of Thorns," an inside look at life in Dadaab.
    * Brief But Spectacular- You may know him as "Billy On The Street" but there's more to comedian Billy Eichner than meets the eye. He gives his Brief but Spectacular take on the most difficult person he knows: himself.

    Moving with Grace Like many baby boomers, former NBC anchor Stone Phillips and his siblings found themselves caring for their aging parents. Ninety-two-year-old Vic, a World War II veteran, copes with chronic heart issues, although his mind and memory remain "as reliable as a Bob Gibson fastball." Grace, his wife of 66 years, suffers from dementia, which robs the once-gregarious former teacher of her short-term memory. MOVING WITH GRACE, an intimate documentary Phillips produced and shot, follows this charming couple as they move out of the family home in Missouri and adapt to life first in a retirement community and later in an assisted-living facility. This honest and, at times, poignant story highlights the common struggles associated with elder care and its consequences. duration 57:19   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    First Peoples [#102] Africa 200,000 years ago, a new species appeared on the African landscape - Homo sapiens. Scientists imagined eastern Africa was a real-life Garden of Eden, but the latest research suggests we evolved in many places across the continent at the same time. Diversity is etched into our biological blueprint. DNA from a 19th Century African-American slave is forcing geneticists to re-think the origins of our species. The idea is that our ancestors met, mated and hybridized with other types of human in Africa - creating ever greater diversity within our species. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Gale tells the team about her life of traveling, working in France, and meeting Julia Child. Afterward, the Roadtrippers meet with Alex Ross, a comic book artist who tells them about his incredible luck in his career, but stresses that anyone can do anything they want-they just have to put in the effort. Afterward, the team hears bad news: the RV won't be fixed in time for their next interviews. So, they decide to book flights to their next stop in Washington, DC, despite that Antoine has never been on a plane before. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
