    PBS NewsHour [#11030] IRAQ - After months of political deadlock in Iraq, president Fouad Massoum has nominated deputy parliament speaker Haider al-Abadi to become the country's new prime minister. Gwen Ifill debriefs with Brett McGurk, the deputy assistant secretary for Iraq and Iran in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs at the US Department of State. She is then joined by former US ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, and senior director for the Middle East and North Africa at the National Endowment for Democracy, Laith Kubba.
    SOMALIA - Judy Woodruff sits down with Somali president Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to discuss his efforts to end decades of violence, chaos and poverty in his country, and to combat the al-Qaeda linked, al-Shabaab militant group.
    ST. LOUIS SHOOTING - The killing of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri has triggered riots, looting and chaos in the St. Louis suburb. Jeffrey Brown examines the shooting and its aftermath with Sherrilyn Ifill, Gwen Ifill's cousin and the president of the NAACP's legal defense fund, and Greg Meyer, a former LAPD captain who has written on and testified in multiple "use-of-force" cases around the nation.
    NEWSPAPERS - More and more media giants are shedding print altogether in favor of broadcast and web content. Gannett, the company that owns USA Today among other publications, is the latest to spin-off its print operations. It follows closely on the heels of the Tribune Company and others. Ken Doctor, who covers the transformation of media for his website newsonomics.com, and in his column for the Nieman Journalism Lab analyzes this trend.

    In My Lifetime This program thoughtfully and thoroughly examines the 68-year history of nuclear weapons - the most destructive force ever invented. Filmed in Europe, Japan and the US, it focuses on the continuing struggle of citizens, scientists and political leaders working to reduce or eliminate the atomic threat, while others search for ways to build nuclear weapons.
    In contemporary interviews, former heads of state, UN representatives, figures from the nuclear establishment, Manhattan Project scientists, Nobel Peace- and Pulitzer Prize-winners, military personnel and atomic-bomb survivors recount the birth of the nuclear age and detail the key developments that followed. The film shifts between historical events, including the Cuban missile crisis and the historic 1986 Reykjavik Summit between Reagan and Gorbachev to present-day efforts to contain the spread of nuclear weapons. It also details the obstacles - political and human- impeding a solution to this complex global issue.

    European Journal [#3232] Backlash of Gaza Fighting Increase Fears In France France: Protests in Little Jerusalem - France is home to Europe's largest Jewish and Muslim communities. The start of the Israeli military offensive in the Gaza strip has prompted a number of anti-Israel protests. In Sarcelles, a suburb of Paris, Jews and Muslims have traditionally lived peacefully side by side - shopping at the stores or playing soccer together. Now many Jewish families are concerned for their safety due to antagonism and threats from Muslim protesters, and have bought weapons for self-defense. Imams and rabbis are trying to de-escalate the tension and aggression. Turkey: Miners in danger - A mining accident in the town of Soma cost the lives of several hundred men in May. It was the latest in a long line of mining-related disasters in Turkey. Poor safety standards have left the miners angry and frustrated with the government. Coal mining is an important part of Turkey's economy. Conditions for workers have worsened since the government sold many of its state-owned mines around 15 years ago. Some mines are illegal, with accidents frequently covered up. The miners work for low wages, without protective clothing or emergency measures. A few weeks ago Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan - currently on the campaign trail for the presidency - promised to find a solution concerning safety standards. Britain: Cheaper rent against squatters - London house prices recently saw a record 25% rise over 12 months. Real estate owners are recruiting low-rent tenants to keep the properties occupied - and safe. Landlords are luring people with favorable rents - including offices, gymnasiums and churches. For 600 euros a month you can move in as a temporary tenant. As a so-called "property guardian" you also protect the space from squatters. Londoners on an average working income find it difficult to find affordable accommodation, especially in the more exclusive parts of London. The Czech Republic: Russian tourists abandon Karlovy Vary - The divisive political fall-out from the war in Ukraine has even reached the picturesque spa town of Karlovy Vary. It had become a favorite vacation spot among Russian tourists - but this year they haven't been so eager. Karlovy Vary stands to lose millions of euros from the tourists staying away. While many Germans and Austrians hop over the border for a day, most Russians would spend weeks there for a long relaxing vacation. Each summer nearly 90,000 Russians visit the town, but this year only half that number have come. The separatist uprising in Ukraine has many Russian tourists reluctant to travel around Europe for fear of not being granted visas. duration 26:10   STEREO TVG
