Both have been revered throughout the Asian American community both as artists and community activities since the 1960's.
    "Honor & Sacrifice" by Lucy Ostrander - "Honor & Sacrifice" tells the complex story of a Japanese immigrant family ripped apart by WWII. The Matsumoto family included five sons; two who fought for the Americans and three who fought for the Japanese.

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1738H] POPE FRANCIS MIDDLE EAST TRIP - This weekend Pope Francis makes a pilgrimage to the region Christians call "the Holy Land" to meet with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and to try to reinforce the unity of Western and Eastern Christians. But he will also engage Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious leaders and address issues such as the diminishing number of Christians in the region and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. "This pope," says Haris Tarin of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, "can remind the region that dignity and peace and living together in harmony is in essence what the peace process should be about."
    RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN MISSISSIPPI - Baptist pastor and Mississippi state senator Phillip Gandy recently sponsored and the legislature passed a religious freedom restoration act "to protect people of faith from having their religious freedoms violated," says Gandy. But others see it as an attempt to legalize discrimination under the pretext of religion, or to insulate the state's Christian residents from the changes in LGBT civil rights occurring across the country. "It's aiming at keeping government in its place," Gandy explains. But National Council of Churches president and general secretary Jim Winkler describes it as "a rearguard action by those concerned by changes taking place in society."

    Nature [#3112H] The Gathering Swarms This program looks at some of the most extraordinary swarms on the planet, including a view from inside a locust swarm, mayflies along the Mississippi, 17-year cicadas, and brine fly hatches over Lake Victoria. Superswarms of finch-like quelea in Africa merit attempts at control through assaults on their roosts, while aggressive swarms of silver carp in North American seem able to overcome any kind of restraint. Dangerous swarms of killer bees, however, can be controlled to the point that they can be worn as a human bee suit. But beyond the power of sheer numbers, increasingly complex and organized swarms eventually give rise to swarm intelligence that allows complex decisions to be made. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Global Voices [#508] Stranded: The Andes Plane Crash Survivors On Friday, October 13, in 1972, charter flight 571 took off from Montevideo, Uruguay's capital city, carrying a boisterous team of wealthy college athletes to a rugby match in Chile. But what was supposed to be a first taste of freedom away from home turned out to be a much scarier and life-altering journey.
    This program is the tale of flight 571, which never made it to Chile. Instead, the plane crash-landed in a desolate glacial valley, high in the Andean cordillera - a chain of rugged, snow-covered peaks stretching from Bogata, Colombia to Punta Arenas, Chile. Fifteen people died, including the pilot. 5 were badly wounded. But - miracle of miracles - 29 lived.
    3 decades after the crash, the 16 survivors, interviewed in the film, revive long-buried emotions and intimate memories. They take viewers, moment by agonizing moment, through their suffering, as hope turns into despair and as hours stretch into days and weeks. And finally, just before disbelief hardens into bitterness and fear turns to madness, the unexpected happens.
    With death by starvation drawing ever nearer, the survivors arrive at a universal conclusion - that in order to live, they must break a taboo: They must find their nourishment in the flesh of their teammates who have died alongside them in the snowy wilderness. The group closes ranks around the terrible, life-saving decision: a decision that sustains them over the 72-day odyssey and helps them fuse into a single organism dedicated to one purpose - survival.

    Matter of Duty: The Continuing War Against PTSD This program tells the stories of Maine soldiers who were deployed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Gulf War and the Vietnam War and returned home to face a new, relentless enemy: post-traumatic stress disorder. PTSD is a condition that is not well understood here in Maine and it will have lasting implications for the entire state. It is a national epidemic.
    This documentary details Kennebec Sheriff Randy Liberty's personal battle with PTSD and several veterans in his charge at the Kennebec County Jail. Liberty's honesty about his own condition and his efforts to help other veterans vividly depicts the continuing impact of war on the men and women who have served our country.
