    Global 3000 [#445] Africa's Rising Middle Class For several years, Kenya's economy has enjoyed a sound growth rate. Although 60% of the country's population still lives in poverty, the middle class is growing. Richard Kimani is an entrepreneur who got his start as a distributor of mineral water. Meanwhile, he has also become a successful juice producer who has nearly 360 Kenyan farmers under contract. Much of their mango harvest used to rot and go to waste - but now Kimani turns their fruit into juicy profits. duration 26:10   STEREO

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1611H] THE SISTINE CHAPEL - After 500 years, the ceiling of the Vatican's Sistine Chapel, which Michelangelo spent four years painting, remains as important a piece of art as has ever been created. As Lucky Severson reports, until then God had not generally been depicted as human, or male, and art historians may still disagree: did God create man in his own image, or was it the other way around?
    LIFE OF PI - Opening nationwide this week, this film adaptation of the best-selling book explores the phenomenon of being open to faith, as experienced by a young boy stranded at sea with a man-eating tiger.

    Moyers & Company [#145H] Hurricanes, Capitalism & Democracy * Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, but Naomi Klein says that the tragic destruction can also be the catalyst for the transformation of politics and our economy. The author of the international bestseller The Shock Doctrine joins Bill to discuss hurricanes, climate change, and democracy. Klein has been in New York visiting the devastated areas - including those where "Occupy Sandy" volunteers are unfolding new models of relief - as part of her reporting for a new book and film on climate change and the future. "Let's rebuild by actually getting at the root causes. Let's respond by aiming for an economy that responds to the crisis both through inequality and climate change," Klein tells Bill. "You know, dream big."
    * In the same broadcast, former Federal Election Commission Chairman Trevor Potter - the lawyer who advised Stephen Colbert on setting up a super PAC - dissects the spending on the most expensive election in American history. Many voices are claiming "money didn't matter, Citizens United wasn't a factor," but Potter disagrees. "Super PACs just upped the ante," he tells Bill. "If you're a senator and you have just been elected, or heaven forbid you're up in 2 years, you're thinking I don't have time to worry about deficit reduction and the fiscal cliff. I have to raise tens of thousands of dollars every day to have enough money to compete with these new super PACs... And that means I need to be nice to a lot of billionaires who often want something from me in order to find the funding for my campaign."

    Washington Week [#5220H] "I didn't get re-elected just to bask in re-election. I got elected to do work on behalf of American families and small businesses all across the country..." - President Obama, November 14, 2012
    With that, the president, in his press conference, laid out his second-term agenda and sent a strong message to Republicans to find common ground and overcome the confrontation and gridlock of the past four years. The president was also peppered with questions about the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus and the investigation of the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. As for the looming fiscal crisis, President Obama signaled that any deficit reduction deal must include revenue increases and that he's ready to battle Congress to reach an agreement before the automatic spending cuts go into effect.
    Gwen Ifill will examine the Obama administration's second-term priorities and challenges with: Martha Raddatz of ABC News, David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal, Helene Cooper of The New York Times, and Charles Babington of the Associated Press.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2407H] November 16, 2012 Guest Host: Spencer Michels.
    STATE FISCAL OUTLOOK BRIGHTENS - A new report by the Legislative Analyst's Office forecasts a boost for California's economy. The passage of Gov. Brown's Proposition 30, an upgraded credit rating for the state and predictions of a growing economy are expected to help shrink the state budget deficit.
    CAP AND TRADE LAUNCHES - California launched the country's first large-scale carbon market with the auction of pollution credits. Companies emitting over 25,000 tons in greenhouse gases must have one allowance, or credit, for each metric ton. Many see the system as a win for the environment, while critics say it's a tax on business. < br />CAMPAIGNS AND DIGITAL DATA - What do campaigns know about you? Thanks to the trail of digital data generated by increasingly on-line, networked lifestyles, political campaigns have been working to target specific voters and to develop ways to predict how they will vote.
    CONTROVERSY OVER NUDITY BAN - In San Francisco, the Board of Supervisors is considering a ban on nudity on the city's streets. Protestors say that freedom of expression is at stake, but supporters say it will help curb a public nuisance. If passed, the law would levy fines that start at $100.
    Guests: Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; Lauren Sommer, KQED Science; Hari Sreenivasan, PBS NewsHour; and Marisa Lagos, San Francisco Chronicle.

    Need To Know [#262H] Money Matters The election was more than a week ago, but the debate continues about the extraordinary amount of money spent during the campaign season, an estimated $6 billion. Of course, the huge increase in campaign spending follows the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United ruling, the 5-4 decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy which said restrictions on independent spending by corporations and unions to support candidates violated their constitutional guarantees of free speech. In his dissent Justice John Paul Stevens warned then that the ruling threatens to undermine the integrity of elected institutions across the nation. So has it? Will it? And are there other electoral reforms we should consider? That's our focus this week with panelists including Monica Youn, David Keating, Richard Brookhiser and Scott Murphy. Ray Suarez anchors. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    History Detectives [#608] * John Adams Book - A woman in Littleton, New Hampshire, inherited her husband's aunt's belongings, which include a curious late-18th-century book titled Trials of Patriots. It contains what appears to be President John Adams' signature in three places, and includes an inscription, "Charles Adams from His Father, 1794." The book is a collection of transcripts chronicling the sedition trials of Irish and Scottish radicals. If the book is indeed from Adams to his son, it could reveal pivotal clues about the inner-workings of this presidential family. In Boston and John Adams' hometown of Quincy, Massachusetts, Gwendolyn Wright examines the Adams family's correspondence and conflict as they balanced home life with public service.
    * Sioux Spoon - A woman in Portland, Oregon, has a curious spoon that once belonged to her grandmother. It's known in her family as "the spoon of atrocities." An eerie scene is etched into its sterling silver bowl: wagons, buildings and a crowd of spectators gathered before a gallows with figures hanging from them. A disturbing message is inscribed: "Hanging 38 Sioux In 1862 Mankato, Minn." What is this tragic scene and why has it been etched into what looks like a commemorative spoon? Wes Cowan travels to Mankato, New Ulm and Minneapolis, Minnesota, to explore the clash between white settlers and Sioux in the mid-19th century - and a struggle that led to the largest mass execution in American history.
    * NC-4: First Across the Atlantic - Almost 10 years before Charles Lindbergh's famous solo flight across the Atlantic, the NC-4 was the first aircraft to make the transatlantic journey in May 1919. A woman in Saratoga, California, has a small square of canvas-like fabric that she believes comes from the NC-4, one of four U.S. Navy "flying boats" that had originally been commissioned to alert American destroyers to the locations of German U-boat submarines that were wreaking havoc on merchant ships along the U.S. coast during World War I. Due to early mechanical problems, the NC-4 was considered by many aviation insiders to be the least likely candidate to complete the trek across the Atlantic. In Pensacola, Florida, and Hammondsport, New York, Elyse Luray investigates the little-known story of the NC-4 and its historic voyage.

Though it was the first province discovered by Europeans, it was the last to join Canada in 1949 - a testimony to its independent spirit. Next, GT travels south west to the maritime provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick, known for their rugged coastlines, natural beauty and delicious fresh fish. GT then heads inland to say bonjour to Quebec's European culture and old-world charm and party at the New France Festival.

    Nature [#3004] An Original DUCKumentary Working with "Hummingbirds" producer Ann Prum, Nature features another popular, beautiful and fascinating bird - the duck. The story follows a wood duck family and discovers how a male and female create a bond, migrate together across thousands of miles, nurture and protect a brood of chicks and come full circle as they head to their wintering grounds. But our stars are just one of some 150 species of ducks. They come in all shapes and sizes and abilities - some are dabblers popping in and out of the surface of a glass lake and others swim with powerful webbed feet underwater. They fly through the air on short, stubby wings, traveling in large, energy-efficient formations over thousands of miles. Some are noisy and gregarious, others shy and elusive. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Nova [#3915H] Ultimate Mars Challenge It could be NASA's last chance to set wheels down on Mars until the end of the decade: in August 2012, a rover named Curiosity touched down inside Mars' Gale Crater, carrying 10 new instruments that advanced the quest for signs that Mars might have once been suitable for life. But Curiosity's mission is risky. After parachuting through the Martian atmosphere at twice the speed of sound, Curiosity is gently lowered to the planet's surface by a "sky crane." This first-of-its-kind system has been tested on Earth, but will it work on Mars?
    With inside access to the massive team of scientists and engineers responsible for Curiosity's on-the-ground experiments, Nova is there for the exhilarating moments after Curiosity's landing - and for the spectacular discoveries to come. But no rover does it alone: Curiosity is joining a team that includes the Mars Odyssey, Express and Reconnaissance orbiters, along with the tireless Opportunity rover. As we reveal the dynamic new picture of Mars that these explorers are painting, we discover the questions raised by 40 years of roving Mars: How do we define life? How does life begin and what does it need to survive? Are we alone in the universe?
