    Moyers & Company [#211H] What Has Capitalism Done for Us Lately? * Richard Wolff's smart, blunt talk about the crisis of capitalism on his first Moyers & Company appearance was so informative, we asked him to return. On this week's show Wolff dives further into income inequality, analyzing the widening gap between a booming stock market and a population that increasingly lives in poverty. Wolff also takes questions sent in from around the world by our viewers. Wolff taught economics for 35 years at the University of Massachusetts and is now visiting professor at The New School University in New York City. His books include Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism and Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It. < br />* Also returning is Sheila Bair, the longtime Republican who served as chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) during the fiscal meltdown five years ago. During that time, she warned the public and her colleagues about big banking's excesses and against the billions in "too big to fail" taxpayer bailouts. Bair joins Bill to talk about American banks' continuing risky and manipulative practices, their seeming immunity from prosecution, and growing anger from Congress and the public. Bair is the author of Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE

    European Journal [#3111] Old Spy Habits Die Hard In Romania ROMANIA: SPY HABITS DIE HARD - A former Romanian spy has won a court case against his own country. But his victims are still waiting for the full story. Romania's communist-era secret police, the Securitate, was one of the world's most feared. But it appears its successor intelligence agency, the SRI, adopted the old surveillance practices for many years after the overthrow of the Ceausescu regime. The evidence comes from protocols drawn up by a former Securitate spy. In 1996 he went public. The Romanian authorities sentenced him to two years in jail - but the former spy has now been vindicated by the European Court of Human Rights.
    MOSCOW: DIZZYING HEIGHTS - The Russian capital is home to half of Europe's tallest sykscrapers. For one particular group of young people, they're the ultimate challenge. Ice and snow are no obstacle to these young Muscovites. They scale the dizzy heights of the city's skyscrapers whatever the weather - and without any harnesses. Until now just a bit of illegal fun, their escapades could now become a professional career. The billionaire owner of Moscow's tallest tower has expressed his support and a personal connection to the youngsters and their adventures.
    ICELAND: FISH SUFFOCATE IN FJORD - Iceland is currently seeing an environmental disaster affecting its fish stocks. Around 50,000 tons of herring have died in a fjord there, and are now rotting away after being washed up on its banks. Experts suspect that low levels of oxygen are to blame for the mass of dead fish. What's more, the oil excreted by the herring can in turn become a danger for birds by clogging up their feathers and wings. We take a look at what the local community is doing to get rid of the problem.

    Global 3000 [#512] A Catholic Clash over Contraceptives in the Philippines SINGIN' IT LOUD: THE BURMESE GIRL BAND THAT'S BREAKING WITH TRADITION - After decades of military rule, Burma has witnessed dramatic social change in the last 2 years, including a relaxing of strict censorship rules. What do these new developments mean for the younger generation? Global 3000 meets the Me N Ma Girls, a popular girl band. These 5 young women are role models for young girls. Their brand of politically charged pop is challenging conventions and breaking with tradition.
    FEELING THE BEAT: FINNISH RAPPER SIGNMARK - Signmark, alias Marko Vuoriheimo, from Finland is a rapper - and he's deaf. His message to deaf people is that they need to stand up for their rights! He's never seen his deafness as a hindrance in his career and says that he and his band are a well-practiced team. If the rest of the world knew sign language, he says, he wouldn't need an interpreter. So is he disabled or just a linguistic minority?
    SOLAR SISTER: SOLAR POWER IS EMPOWERING UGANDAN WOMEN - 95% of the population in Uganda has no electric power in their homes and relies on paraffin lamps for lighting. But not only is kerosene expensive, it's also a serious pollutant. Set up in 2010, the project Solar Sister has now provided almost 32,000 Ugandans with solar technology - and trained women as saleswomen. They're earning a living, helping their community and protecting the environment. In the course of 10 years, a solar lamp saves over 600 liters of kerosene and that means CO2 savings of 1.5 tons. Solar Sister hopes to have helped save 10 million tons of CO2 over the next 10 years.
    THE PHILIPPINES: IS CONTRACEPTION A SIN? - The state of the Philippines is strictly Catholic, and most people believe that it's their duty to have children. But a new bill is designed to reduce the country's high birthrate, with free condoms and improved reproductive health education. But bishops are calling the bill's supporters 'terrorists'. The soaring birthrate is taking its toll on social services and public infrastructure, let alone the job market. But even so, the new bill is deeply divisive.

    Washington Week [#5238H] President Obama urged Middle East leaders to resume Israel-Palestinian peace talks during his first trip to the region as president this week. But US efforts to reach a mutually acceptable compromise in the conflict-ridden region are complicated by the president's strained relationship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Iran's growing nuclear ambitions, and reports that chemical weapons may have been used in nearby Syria. Tom Gjelten of NPR and David Sanger of The New York Times will report on whether Mr. Obama's visit will change the landscape in the troubled region.
    Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post and John Harris of Politico will have analysis of a Republican self-examination on the 2012 elections that concluded the party needs to adopt a more inclusive tone to overcome a public image that it is "narrow-minded" and "out-of-touch. " Plus they will take a look at why a recent surge in support for same-sex marriage could shift the political balance on this issue and the political calculations that go along with that support.

    SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BEFORE THE US SUPREME COURT
    Next Tuesday, more than 4 years after California voters approved Proposition 8, the state's ban on same sex marriage gets a full hearing before the US Supreme Court. The high court will also hear oral arguments for and against the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA. This comes as recent polls show a significant jump in support for same-sex marriage.

We look back at the series of events leading to this historical moment.
    Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom recalls his controversial decision as mayor of San Francisco to grant marriage licenses to gay couples in 2004. His actions helped to energize supporters of traditional marriage.
    Attorney Andrew Pugno, General Counsel for ProtectMarriage.com - sponsors of Proposition 8 - talks about the legal defense he is helping to present to the US Supreme Court.

Now, the generals have started to implement a series of democratic and economic reforms - which the US and other Western powers have welcomed overwhelmingly.

    Nature [#2613H] Victoria Falls Cutting across the Zambezi River, bridging the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world. In the dry season, this awesome force of nature divides two natural worlds -- the tranquil meandering river above the cascade, and the raging abyss of the gorge below. The upper river is idyllic, running shallow through sandstone hills and meandering around islands and reed-beds where elephants, hippos, and crocodiles thrive. In a single vertical drop the river plummets twice the height of Niagara Falls into the wild waters and heavy spray of the narrow gorge, where fish are found only by those who know where to look. Between the two worlds are treacherous cliffs and thick, mossy rainforests fed by river mists, home to baboons whose lives change with the seasons. When the rains fall, the rivers swell and the falls thunder. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG
