    Tavis Smiley [#2822] "Vision for a New America" panel discussion, Part 1 of 4
    Nearly 50 million Americans live in poverty, which means that more than 16% of our fellow citizens are struggling to survive. For children, that number is 20% - and, worst of all, for African Americans, the figure is nearly 26%. With all the talk of a slow recovery from the deepest recession since the US depression, there doesn't seem to be much good news for the country's poor.
    It's against the stark backdrop of these numbers that Tavis broadcasts 3 nights of a special conversation on poverty. "Vision for a New America: A Future Without Poverty" will examine one of the most important, but often-forgotten issues of our time. Panelists will discuss proven solutions on how government officials can contain the wildfire of American poverty. < br />Guests include: Mariana Chilton, director of the Center for Hunger-Free Communities and associate professor of Drexel University's School of Public Health; Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United; Rep. Marcia L. Fudge (D-OH); Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House; John D. Graham, dean, Indiana University School of Public & Environmental Affairs and author of America's Poor and the Great Recession; Jonathan Kozol, author of Fire in the Ashes: Twenty-Five Years Among the Poorest Children in America; Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University; and Cornel West, Union Theological Seminary professor and author.

    Ripple of Hope On the night of Dr. Martin Luther King's murder in 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was scheduled to make an appearance in an African-American neighborhood as part of his run for the Democratic presidential nomination. Upon hearing the tragic news, Kennedy was forced to make a crucial decision: Should he venture into the heart of the Indianapolis inner city and talk to the potentially volatile crowd gathered in a park? What could he say that would assuage their grief? Should he defy the city officials who ordered him to stay away? Would his life be in danger? A RIPPLE OF HOPE tells the dramatic story of that night, and how by keeping his promise to speak in Indianapolis, Robert F. Kennedy was able to help that city avert the violence that swept the rest of the country and make a profound statement about American race relations. duration 54:36   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Nova [#4003H] Rise of the Drones A revolution is transforming the armed forces of every nation. Nova launches an investigation of the explosive growth of airborne UAVs or pilotless drones. During the invasion of Iraq in 2003, the US deployed only a handful; now, it has more than 7000. Besides the US, over 40 other nations are now building or buying these increasingly lethal and cost-effective weapons, and it's only a matter of time before a terrorist group turns the technology against Western targets. The latest Predators can track 12 targets at once, trace footprints back to their source and even recognize individual faces. Yesterday's soldiers and pilots put their lives on the line but today, a UAV pilot can "fly" a mission in Afghanistan remotely from a base in Nevada. As one pilot said, after carrying out a strike, "within 20 minutes you can be sitting at the dinner table talking to your kids." That new ability has already saved hundreds if not thousands of US service lives but may make military strikes a more tempting, seemingly risk-free option. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Life On Fire [#104H] Phoenix Temple In the vast emptiness of the Pacific Ocean, tectonic movements construct or swallow islands. In the Tongan archipelago, two little-known animals have learned to cope with these ephemeral lands risen from the ocean depths: the sooty tern, a seabird that never dares wet its wings for fear of drowning, and the Alvin shrimp, a blind crustacean that manages to find its way around the abyss. When an underwater volcano becomes an island, the fates of these two extraordinary paradoxes are linked. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG

    Secrets of the Dead [#1004] Slave Ship Mutiny When the Meermin set sail from Madagascar en route to South Africa on a hot summer's day in 1766, the Dutch crew had no idea they were about to make history. The ship was filled to capacity with human cargo, slaves bound for hard labor building the Dutch colony, Cape Town. But the Meermin with its crew and cargo would never make it to Cape Town. Instead, in a dramatic altercation, the slaves mutinied and managed to overpower the Dutch crew, ordering the ship be sailed back to Madagascar and freedom. But through a sinister act of deception the crew turned the boat around each evening and made full sail for Cape Town. And so the circumstances for a dramatic climax -- and shipwreck -- were laid when the ship and its desperate passengers finally spied land. This program tracks the efforts of archaeologists, historians and slave descendents to discover the full story of this dramatic historical event. They want to learn what happened on the Meermin, how the slaves were able to overpower their captors, and why the ship ended up wrecked on a wild, windswept beach 200 miles east of Cape Town. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
