    Global 3000 [#444] Polluting Machines on the High Seas - Super Cruise Ships Polluting the Oceans - Cruise Ships' Environmental Footprint. The cruise ship industry comes in for heavy criticism for its poor environmental record. Environmental groups accuse the sector of polluting the seas, with luxury liners disposing of their waste in the ocean and emitting huge amounts of CO2. According to the World Wide Fund for Nature, cruise ships' wastewater disposal practices are creating marine dead zones. But passenger numbers are climbing - last year, 20 million holidaymakers booked a cruise. duration 26:10   STEREO

    Washington Week [#5219H] * In his re-election victory speech President Barack Obama pledged "the best is yet to come." But first the president has to find a way to get a divided Congress to reach an agreement to prevent a fiscal crisis or risk pushing the country into recession.
    * Most analysts believe the Obama campaign's high-tech, micro-targeting of key voter demographics played a big role in the president's decisive win. Over the past three years the Obama campaign invested millions in voter ID and field organizing and in the end it paid off. So will this be the strategy other presidential campaigns will use in the future?
    * Mitt Romney's defeat has plunged the GOP into an intense period of self-examination and debate over the need to broaden the conservative coalition. Can the current Republican Party leadership come up with a message that will appeal to an increasingly diverse American electorate?
    Joining Gwen Ifill with analysis of the 2012 election results including some changes in Congress will be: Dan Balz of The Washington Post, John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News, Beth Reinhard of National Journal, and Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2406H] November 9, 2012 ELECTION ROUNDUP
    * What does President Obama's win say about the changing electorate, with an estimated 70% of the Latino vote helping to deliver key swing states? Does this election signal a tipping point in the influence of voters of color?
    * It was a win-win for California Democrats this week, securing a supermajority in both houses of the legislature. Voters approved Proposition 30, Gov. Brown's tax measure, which promises to bring in billions in funding for schools.
    * The effort to curb the use of paycheck deductions for political organizing failed as Proposition 32 was voted down. Proposition 34, a voter's initiative to abolish the death penalty, also failed. The regulation of food remains status quo, as both a statewide measure to require labeling of genetically modified foods and a soda tax in the city of Richmond were rejected by voters.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News; Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle; and Lisa Vorderbrueggen, Bay Area News Group.

    Miller Center Forums [#1512] Bruce Riedel - Deadly Embrace: Pakistan, America and the Future of the Global Jihad Pakistan and America have been gripped together in a deadly embrace for decades. For half a century American presidents from both parties pursued narrow short-term interests in Pakistan. This myopia actually backfired in the long term, helping to destabilize the political landscape and radicalizing the population, setting the stage for the global jihad we face today. Bruce Riedel, one of America's foremost authorities on US security and South Asia, sketches the history of US-Pakistani relations from the partitioning of the subcontinent in 1947 up through the present day. It is muddled story, meandering through periods of friendship and enmity. Riedel deftly interprets the tortuous path of relations between two very different nations that remain, in many ways, stuck with each other. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    History Detectives [#304] Cherokee Bible/Slave Banjo/United Empire Loyalists * Cherokee Bible - An Austin, Texas, resident of Cherokee descent inherited a mysterious bible from her father. Having grown up speaking English only, she is intrigued by what appears to be Cherokee writing in the bible, and wants to learn more about her own family's history. This native language was "invented" by the Cherokee Indian Sequoia in the early 1800s in a desperate effort to win the respect of the U.S. authorities for his people. While Sequoia succeeded in establishing literacy rates in excess of the encroaching white settlers, the Cherokee were ultimately forced to march on the infamous "Trail of Tears" to Oklahoma. The History Detectives learn more about one of the most tragic events in U. S. history as they head to Oklahoma and Tennessee to tackle the genealogical mystery behind the contributor's bible.
    * Slave Banjo - A beautiful, worn banjo was recently purchased by a Chicago resident on an online auction. A tattered note inside says the banjo dates to the mid-1800s and was bought from a former slave in Bethel, Ohio, by an abolitionist family some time after Emancipation. Could this be the only slave banjo known to exist? Enlisting the help of blues musician Taj Mahal, HD is off to Ohio and Maryland to trace the roots of two American families divided by racial lines during the Civil War, and to track the surprising lineage of that most American-sounding of musical instruments.
    * United Empire Loyalists - A contributor from Northridge, California, recently came across a family tree, which contained the words "United Empire Loyalist" scribbled alongside several names. Curious, she began her own investigation and discovered that the United Empire Loyalists were descendants of the more than 50,000 people who fled to Canada following the defeat of the British in the Revolutionary War. (Today, UEL is the only hereditary title conferred by the Canadian government.) HD travels to Canada, New Jersey and Pennsylvania to learn more about this mysterious family link to a forgotten story of the Revolutionary War.

    Nova [#3914H] Mystery of Easter Island A remote, bleak speck of rock in the middle of the Pacific, Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, has mystified the world ever since the first Europeans arrived in 1722. How and why did the ancient islanders build and move nearly 900 giant statues or moai, weighing up to 86 tons? And how did they transform a presumed paradise into a treeless wasteland, bringing ruin upon their island and themselves? Nova explores controversial recent claims that challenge decades of previous thinking about the islanders, who have been accused of everything from ecocide to cannibalism. Among the radical new theories is that the islanders used ropes to "walk" the statues upright, like moving a fridge. With the help of an accurate 15-ton replica statue, a Nova team sets out to test this high-risk, seemingly unlikely theory. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG
