    Egypt's Golden Empire [#101] The Warrior Pharaohs By 1570 BCE, Egypt lies divided among foreign rulers. But Ahmose, one of the last Egyptian princes, rises to defeat the Hyksos and the Nubians. The New Kingdom is born, uniting Egypt once again. After Ahmose dies, Hatshepsut becomes the first female Pharaoh. Striving for legitimacy, she embarks on an ambitious building program and opens new trade routes. Her son and successor, Thutmosis III, campaigns extensively in the Near East, and brings much of the ancient world under Egyptian rule. The concept of "empire" is born. duration 56:06   STEREO TVPG

    Egypt's Golden Empire [#102] Pharaohs of the Sun By 1400 B.C. the Egyptian empire stretches from Northern Syria to the Sudan in Africa. Led by Amenhotep III, it is a golden age of wealth, power and prosperity. Remarkable diplomacy is used to keep the empire's rivals at bay, while the provinces of Egypt revel in their protection. Art, technology and new ideas flourish, and Egyptian rulers are seen as gods. After the death of Amenhotep III, his son Akhenaten initiates drastic changes. Consumed by a monotheist belief, he orders a new capital built in the desert, marries the beauty Nefertiti and embarks on a campaign of religious repression. When he dies, the new capital is abandoned. The death of his son-in-law, the boy-king Tutankhamen, marks the end of the Ahmose dynasty. duration 56:06   STEREO TVPG

    Moyers & Company [#201H] Paul Krugman On Why Jobs Come First * Our current obsession with slashing the deficit is getting in the way of real work that needs to be done to preserve both our economy and our democracy. It's all about jobs, says Paul Krugman, who joins Bill Moyers this week. The Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist explains why our top priority should be getting America back to work - if only Congress and the President would stop throwing distractions in the way. Krugman's latest book, End This Depression Now!, is a warning of the fiscal perils ahead and a prescription to safely avoid them.
    * Later on the show, Bill explains how last week's fiscal cliff deal gave tens of billions in tax breaks to Wall Street and corporations - what even The Wall Street Journal calls a "crony capitalist blowout."

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1619] PRISONS FOR PROFIT - Louisiana has the highest rate of incarceration of any state in the nation with 1 in every 86 adults behind bars. As Lucky Severson reports, to contain the costs of imprisoning so many individuals, the state has outsourced the operating of many prisons to local sheriffs and others who are given a per diem payment for each prisoner. Critics say one effect of this is to give sheriffs an incentive to expand their prison populations and keep their costs as low as possible.
    WOMEN CATHOLIC PRIESTS - In the past decade more than 100 women have been "ordained" as Catholic priests, although the Vatican prohibits the ordination of women and considers the act a grave offense against the church, punishable by excommunication. Saul Gonzalez reports on the group called Roman Catholic Women Priests and interviews one of them, Jennifer O'Malley, who says that her excommunication was "a consequence of doing what God has called me to do."

    Washington Week [#5228H] * With just 10 days until he is sworn into office for a second term, President Obama's cabinet continues to take shape. He nominated former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) to replace Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, tapped John Brennan to be the next CIA Director, and picked White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew to succeed outgoing Treasury Secretary Geithner.
    Hagell, a decorated Vietnam War veteran, is expected to face the toughest confirmation hearings as some of his positions on defense and foreign policy are unpopular with both Democrats and his fellow Republicans. Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics and James Kitfield of National Journal will take a closer look at what President Obama's choices of Hagel and Brennan may say about his second-term national security priorities.
    If confirmed, Jack Lew would start as Treasury Secretary amid a brewing fight on Capitol Hill over whether to raise the debt ceiling. David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal will take a closer look at Lew's budget negotiating experience as former head of the Office of Management and Budget for both Presidents Clinton and Obama.
    * At the White House, Vice President Biden held meetings this week with victim's groups, gun-safety organizations and representatives from groups supporting gun rights including the NRA to discuss measures to curb gun violence in the wake of the Newtown school shooting. Biden is heading up a task force aimed at presenting options to President Obama on ways to strengthen gun laws to prevent future mass shootings. Christi Parsons of the Los Angeles Times will report on what if any common ground may exist between the gun-control and gun-rights groups on this highly-charged issue.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2413H] January 11, 2013 Guest Host: Valerie Coleman Morris.
    NEWS PANEL:
    CALIFORNIA BUDGET - Gov. Jerry Brown's new state spending plan eliminates the deficit in the coming fiscal year, projects future surpluses and increases public education funding.
    STATE PRISONS - Declaring an end to the prison overcrowding crisis, Gov. Brown called for federal authorities to return oversight to the state. Meanwhile, a 2011 court-ordered population cap of about 110,000 prisoners has not yet been met.
    OIL TANKER ACCIDENT - The pilot of an oil tanker that sideswiped a Bay Bridge tower Monday had a record of other accidents. While no oil appears to have been spilled, the collision was a stark reminder of the disastrous 2007 Cosco Busan accident, and raised concerns over the environmental impact of massive tankers on the San Francisco Bay.
    Guests: Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News.
    CONVERSATION WITH ASSEMBLY MEMBER NANCY SKINNER - A new bill to regulate and track ammunition in California is one of several legislative proposals being pushed in the wake of the mass shooting in Newton, CT. On Monday, Assembly member Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) unveiled a so-called "bullet bill" that would require the licensing of ammunition sellers and the creation of a state justice department registry to track sales.

    Aspen Institute Presents [#106] War & Peace in the Modern World On the heels of the presidential debate, which at least in part focused on foreign policy, the discussions in tonight's episode are both timely and pressing. The show opens with Jane Harman, Craig Nixon, Michael O'Hanlon, James Steinberg, Dina Temple-Raston discussing America's future military role in the world. There are enormous challenges including climate change, education, economy, failed states, terrorism, and other broad issues that affect our security and international stability. How much is our national security embedded in these broader challenges? Should we be spending more or less on our military? When should we intervene? How often should we be using drones? Should we reinstate the draft or mandatory National Service? This episode explores significant questions about the nature of war and the potential for peace. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
