    Global Voices [#319] Maid In America Hispanic Heritage Month Programming (check local listings) Housekeeper. Nanny. Maid. Surrogate mother.

    Carrier [#103] Super Secrets The ship's location and itinerary are classified. Details of how the nuclear reactor works are top secret. Many aspects of life on a nuclear aircraft carrier are hush-hush. Dating and sex aboard ship are strictly forbidden, but according to one sailor, with 5,000 people on board, relationships are "inevitable," resulting in a "don't ask, don't tell" policy that applies to relationships as well as sexual orientation. When the Nimitz pulls into Hong Kong for a four-day port call, a scandal dramatically alters the lives of two sailors. As the ship departs, the crew learns their itinerary has changed. The captain announces that they are heading for Korea, but the crew can't share this information with their families back home .. . because it's a secret. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14-S (Secondary audio: none)

    Carrier [#104] Squared Away Mentoring and camaraderie are what hold the ship together. But life on deployment is stressful for everyone aboard, and there can be considerable friction between enlisted personnel and their superiors. Port calls allow sailors to blow off steam, but they don't relieve all the pressure. In Guam, a young sailor coming to terms with his upbringing can't play by the rules and is forced out of the Navy. From Guam, the Nimitz sails through the Straits of Malacca, past Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, the last liberty call before the long haul to the Persian Gulf. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    JAINS - Fred de Sam Lazaro reports from Delhi, India on Jainism, a belief system sometimes confused with Hinduism, which dates back to at least the sixth century BC. Though there are now only about 5 million Jains among India's population of 1.2 billion, Jainism's imprint on India's history, including its independence movement, is large. The most devout Jains revere all forms of life, advocate celibacy and renounce all material possessions, including clothing.
