    Focus On Europe [#3135] Russia's Controversial Figurehead: From Prison To Moscow Mayor? It was a clever gambit. Two years earlier than planned, Moscow's mayor Sergey Sobyanin resigned so he could stand for reelection. The opposition was caught completely off guard. Its most promising candidate is blogger Alexei Navalny. The details:
    RUSSIA: CONTROVERSIAL FIGUREHEAD - Putin critic and anti-corruption blogger Alexei Navalny hopes to become mayor of Moscow, but his chances of beating the incumbent, Sergey Sobyanin, are slim. "Change Russia, Start with Moscow" - that's the campaign slogan of the ambitious activist Alexei Navalny. For years, he has exposed corrupt Russian leaders on his internet blog, and he's become the face of the Russian opposition. But now the country's judicial system is pursuing him with all its force. In June, he was sentenced to five years in prison for embezzlement. In a surprise move, he was released in time for the forthcoming election. There is already speculation in Moscow that Navalny is a "Kremlin project," an undercover agent of Putin who is actually working to bring down the opposition.
    ITALY: EUROPEAN CLOSING TIMES - For a long time in Italy, the piazza was considered an extension of the living room. But nightlife on these public squares is now threatened with extinction. In southern Europe, much of life takes place outdoors, especially in the summer. But in Rome and Milan the party atmosphere is now so out of hand that residents are up in arms. Citing European law, they have already won a strategic victory in Milan. A new regulation bans shopkeepers from selling take-away food and drink after midnight. The clash of cultures on the piazzas has begun.
    SERIES "EUROPE ON THE EDGE" - SCANDINAVIA: TROUBLE IN PARADISE - Lapland, a region as large as Denmark in the far north of Europe, is home to only a few thousand people. But ever since half the world set its sights on Sweden's reserves of iron ore, the face of the north has been changing. A British mining company wants to build a mine west of Jokkmokk and recklessly promised its investors it was on unpopulated land. That has infuriated indigenous people such as the Sami. They fear the destruction of their forests, clean drinking water and grazing grounds for their half-tame reindeer. But the mining company wouldn't be the first that got its way at the Sami's expense.
    SWITZERLAND: JOBS FOR IMMIGRANTS - In Germany, hiring immigrants to be health care assistants has been a topic of discussion for years. Switzerland is now doing so in earnest. After the success of a pilot project in the city of St. Gallen, the experiment is to be expanded to the entire canton starting in September. The aim of its proponents: to reduce the nursing shortage and combat high unemployment rates among immigrants. In practice, though, there is often a lack of communication with elderly patients. Nursing associations have criticized the project sharply, saying they fear the project will lead to a loss of quality and low wages.

    Carrier [#105] Show of Force The mission really kicks off when the Nimitz arrives in the Gulf. The conditions are extreme: flight deck personnel endure temperatures hovering around 120 degrees, while the pilots undertake grueling six-hour missions over Iraq. The F-18s are mounted with infrared cameras, enabling them to serve as the "eyes in the sky" to support the troops on the ground. Some of the pilots are frustrated that they're not dropping bombs because, as they describe it, that's what they've been trained to do. The aircraft carrier's role and effectiveness in this particular war are questioned. Meanwhile, the strike group searches for terrorists on small dhows and intercepts cargo ships to search for weapons and bomb-making materials. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Carrier [#106] Groundhog Day After two months in the Gulf, one day starts to become indistinguishable from the next. The airwing still hasn't dropped a single bomb, which is frustrating for some on board. The only relief comes from a port call in Bahrain, where some sailors relax by the pool, while others visit a mosque and learn about Muslim culture. The Princeton, one of the escort ships in the Nimitz strike group, loses a man overboard; an intense search to find the lost sailor ensues. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Faces of America [#103] Making America Episode Three tells the story of the peopling of the New World, of how land came to define the settling and identity of America, and of how the guests' ancestors were part of this history. We discover descriptions of Meryl Streep's eighth great-grandfather who fought in Metacom's War; records of a land dispute in Spain that pushed Eva Longoria's ancestors to leave for the New World; a treaty that Louise Erdrich's Native American ancestor was forced to sign; and Yo-Yo Ma's family genealogy in China, which gives insights into his identity he has longed for his whole life. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
