    Global 3000 [#429] A Closer Look at U.S. Fracking Operations SHALE GAS EXTRACTION AND THE FALLOUT IN THE US - In the US, fracking has become an established technology for extracting shale gas. The process remains controversial and France has even banned it. But in the US, it's a booming industry. In the American midwest, shale gas platforms are springing up everywhere. The US wants to cut its reliance on gas imports. But the extraction method called fracking is believed to release dangerous chemicals. Many fear it could contaminate drinking water supplies because it's not clear how companies dispose of the waste water. Our reporter Max Hofmann talked to proponents of the technology as well as those potentially at risk.
    ANIMATED TELEVISION IN TAIWAN - news for the computer gaming generation: No matter what's happening in the world, television stations often lack up to date, moving images of events. But that's not the case with the Taiwanese news broadcaster Next Media Animation TV (NMATV). Here, the pictures are produced quickly on computers. Real situations are simply reenacted. Even complex, political issues are explained to viewers using animation. NMATV is already a huge hit on the Internet.
    FARMING REVOLUTION IN SOUTH AFRICA - compost from plant waste in Cape Town: A new project in South Africa is taking organic waste that would otherwise be left to simply decay in garbage dumps and processing it in a special facility belonging to the South African company Reliance. There, it is converted it into microbiological compost. The project prevents some 100,000 tons of methane gas being emitted into the atmosphere each year. In addition, the compost helps to improve the quality of the soil, makes plants more robust and helps farmers cut down on the use of pesticides. It's also helping South Africa tackle one of its biggest problems: the massive use of chemical fertilizers in the country has made the ground infertile, caused soil erosion and led to contaminated water.

    Focus On Europe [#3029] As The Olympics Near - A Global Sports Special GREECE - CRISIS IN SPORTS: Fields and stadiums are decaying, sponsors are going bankrupt and sports committees are walking off the job. In Greece, the financial crisis has not spared the world of sports. In stark contrast to eight years ago, as Athens played host to the Summer Olympic Games, the Greek capital now projects a depressing image. In sports, the country has become dependent on handouts from organizations like the International Olympic Committee. But for many Olympic athletes, donations aren't enough. Sailing bronze medalist Virginia still needs 3,000 euros to finance her trip to the upcoming games in London.
    GREAT BRITAIN - BETTING SCANDAL: Professional sports are about peak performance and world records - but for many, they're also about money. Swiss company Sportradar has declared war on betting fraud and match fixing. Sports gambling is big business, estimated be worth several hundred billion euros per year worldwide. As the popularity of online betting grows, controlling the business becomes more difficult, giving the mafia easy pickings for money laundering. And the corruption has also begun to poison the game, as betting scandals in Italian and Spanish soccer make apparent. Computer experts at Sportradar aim to crack down on illegal betting and bring integrity back to sports.
    UKRAINE - EURO 2012 AND AFTER: The first European soccer championship to be held in eastern Europe was greeted with euphoria. In the end, though, the hope that the event would help usher in greater political freedom in Ukraine were dashed. Vitali Klitschko, the former boxing world champion and now a politician, takes stock of what the Euro 2012 meant for Ukraine. The Euro 2012 did not turn Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych into an advocate of democracy, nor did the boycotts of foreign politicians succeed in improving conditions for Yulia Tymoshenko and fellow members of the opposition. Vitali Klitschko is hoping to turn the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform into the country's third-strongest political party, but he remains skeptical about the prospects of greater democracy.
    BELGIUM - WOMEN IN THE RING: Women's boxing is going to make its Olympic debut at the upcoming games in London. Women who participate in amateur boxing hope that the exposure will win over skeptics of the sport. Organized amateur boxing is still a novelty in Germany, and skeptics abound. Women often find it difficult to be taken seriously in a sport that is dominated by men. In Belgium, though, female boxers are gaining new acceptance.
    GERMANY - A NATION OF HIKERS: Over the past decades, hiking has come into its own. Today hiking is the most popular outdoor sporting activity in Germany. About 40 million Germans say that hiking is a favored hobby. Today there are even special offshoots such as Nordic walking, which takes the sport up a notch. The demand for outdoor GPS devices also suggests that many hikers are venturing off the beaten track. And there's even a hiking guide for lovestruck couples.

    VATICAN-NUN CONTROVERSY - Some say the current conflict between Rome and American Catholic sisters is really about the letter and the spirit of Vatican II. "This is not just about the Vatican versus the nuns," says Sister Maureen Fiedler. "This really is about the future of how we interpret the message of the Second Vatican Council."
    ISLAMIC ART GALLERIES - The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has a new exhibition of its collection of art from Islamic lands. The many works on view demonstrate how artistic motifs were shared and used by people of different faiths in different regions over the centuries.

    Moyers & Company [#129H] What It's Like to Go to War America has been at war for over a decade now, with millions of soldiers having seen death and dying up close in Afghanistan and Iraq. But most Americans, watching comfortably on their TVs and computers, witness mostly to statistics, stump speeches, and "expert" rhetoric, don't get what's really going on there.
    This week, Bill talks to Karl Marlantes - a highly-decorated Vietnam veteran, Rhodes Scholar, author, and PTSD survivor - about what we on the insulated outside need to understand about the minds and hearts of our modern warriors. Marlantes shares intimate stories about how his battlefield experiences both shaped him and nearly destroyed him, even after returning to civilian life.
    "'Thou shalt not kill' is a tenet you just do not violate, and so all your young life, that's drilled into your head," Marlantes tells Bill. "And then suddenly, you're 18 or 19 and they're saying, 'Go get 'em and kill for your country.' And then you come back and it's like, 'Well, thou shalt not kill' again. Believe me, that's a difficult thing to deal with. You take a young man and put him in the role of God, where he is asked to take a life - that's something no 19-year-old is able to handle."

    Washington Week [#5204H] * President Barack Obama touted his national security record citing the end of the Iraq war and the killing of Osama bin Laden during a speech to the national convention of Veterans of Foreign Wars this week. The very next day Republican rival Mitt Romney spoke to the group and accused the president of being weak and shirking his responsibility in dealing with foreign governments. Romney's criticism came on the eve of his week-long trip overseas where he hopes to boost his own foreign policy credentials. Dan Balz of The Washington Post will take a closer look at where there are clear policy differences and similarities between Obama and Romney's strategy when it comes to dealing with allies and foreign conflicts.
    * The Romney campaign has seized on President Obama's remark from earlier this month that businesses need government to help them succeed. During a speech about ways to bolster the economy and create jobs, President Obama said "If you've got a business, you didn't build that." The Romney campaign argues that it reveals Obama is obsessed with government intervention. But the Obama campaign insists the remarks were taken out of context and that the president was referring to the country's system of education, roads and bridges. Laura Meckler of The Wall Street Journal will report on this brouhaha over the role of government in the success of private enterprises. < br />* The legal challenge to Pennsylvania's tough new law that requires people to present photo identification before being permitted to vote began this week. Lawyers for the state say the law is a means of preventing voter fraud. Opponents say it is unnecessary and a partisan scheme to deprive countless people the right to voter. Robert Barnes of The Washington Post will look at the legal and political implications of this law and other voter id laws around the country.
    * And Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg News will have exclusive reporting on who is making serious money off of the most expensive presidential campaign in history.

Casey Foundation finds that California, the state with the highest number of children, ranks only 41 out of 50 states in overall well-being of children. The state did fare better on healthcare, scoring 23rd, in large part due to good prenatal care and increasing numbers of children with health insurance.

    SODA TAX CONTROVERSY IN RICHMOND - Should sugary beverages be taxed like cigarettes?

Several decades later, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg built a breakfast food empire and pioneered a new kind of healthcare facility based on Adventist principles of a healthy lifestyle: a plant-based diet; regular exercise; the avoidance of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs, and a holistic focus on education and community life. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Ten... 11... who's counting? But the new 11th dimension is different from all the others, since it implies that strings can come in higher dimensional shapes called membranes, or "branes" for short. These possess truly science-fiction-like qualities, since in principle they can be as large as the universe.
