    Washington Week [#5211H] * Rioting and anti-American protests continue to spread across North Africa and the Middle East following the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya that claimed the life of the ambassador and three other Americans. The FBI is investigating whether the attack in Libya was a terrorist act planned to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary or a violent reaction to an anti-Islam film produced in the US.
    Since the Arab-spring uprising began in 2011, the US has provided Libya more than $200 million in humanitarian and military aid to help stabilize the country after Moammar Gadhafi was deposed and killed. But could this week's simmering and expanding unrest change US relations with Libya and other nations in the region? We will get some answers and analysis from Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times and David Sanger of The New York Times.

    * Plus we'll take a closer look at how the Federal Reserve plans to boost the economy and reduce unemployment and whether that action may change the dynamics of the race for the White House.

    This American Land [#207] Beaver Builders, Wrangling Water, Body Electric, Census in the Smokies Beaver Builders: Beavers are nature's engineers. It turns out they are also good at restoring ailing ecosystems. In eastern Oregon, researchers are doing some extreme fieldwork (snorkeling in rivers and streams in the middle of the night, in the middle of winter!) to learn more about how beaver dams are helping create healthier streams and rivers for salmon, trout, songbirds, and for nearby communities.
    Wrangling Water: Cattle are not the only things being rounded up at some Florida ranches. Residents are also herding water! And it's proving to be a good thing both for the economy and the environment. A pilot program pays ranchers to use their low-lying lands to store water. Water that's captured during the wet season can then be slowly released during dry months into the tributaries of Lake Okeechobee. < br />Body Electric: Ever listen to a fish? It's possible with an electric knifefish! While better known electric eels use electricity to stun their prey, these creatures use electricity to navigate and communicate. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University are intrigued by this sixth "electro sense," and are learning more about how these fish use this tool to find their way around - and locate their next meal.
    Census in the Smokies: This nature audit has been going on for 10 years and gives scientists a good idea about the trends of life in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. A small army of "citizen scientists" help researchers collect specimens, and then analyze their findings.

    After The Harvest: Fighting Hunger in the Coffeelands Coffee farmers in Chiapas, Mexico greet the rainy months between May and September with a mix of hope and trepidation. Consistent rainfall is vital to their crops, but too much water makes their rural dirt roads impassable. The price of beans and corn goes up, just when income from the coffee harvest is depleted. These are "los mesesflacos," or the thin months, when families make ends meet by eating less, eating cheaper foods, or borrowing against their future. In 2010, the Optic Nerve Productions crew traveled from Mexico to Nicaragua with the help of The Coffee Trust to capture the stories of coffee farmers' struggle with seasonal hunger. Food insecurity is a well-established, annual "season" in coffee-growing communities, yet the problem is widely unknown within the specialty coffee industry. . While seasonal hunger is an incredibly complex problem, recent work suggests it is not unsolvable. "After the Harvest: Fighting Hunger in the Coffeelands" is a short film that brings the day-to-day challenges of the thin months to life in the voices of coffee farmers themselves, and shares the successes of creative projects that have been established to eliminate this annual period of food insecurity. duration 21:02   STEREO TVG

    Paraiso for Sale What price would you pay for paradise? And who would you be willing to take it from? Panama is one of the most sought after real estate destinations in the world. The archipelago of Bocas del Toro, a gem hidden away in the Caribbean side of Panama, attracts retirees and developers from the US with its crystal clear waters and luscious trees.

Feliciano, a Ngobe Bugle indigenous leader, organizes his people in an effort to protect their land from the government and foreign developers. Local boatsman Dario runs for Mayor with the hopes of bringing change to development in Bocas del Toro. American retiree couple Karan and Willy spent their life savings on their dream home in paradise, only to pay the real price for it later.
