    Intelligence Squared U.S. [#106] The Gop: Seize The Center Or Die? 2012 was a disappointing year for Republicans. The failure to win key swing states in the presidential election and surprising losses in the House and Senate have prompted some reflection. Was their embrace of small government, low taxes, and a strong conservative stance on social issues at odds with shifting American demographics? Or did the GOP embrace the right platform, but the wrong candidates? duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Intelligence Squared U.S. [#107] Is The Fda Too Cautious? The Food and Drug Administration, the oldest comprehensive consumer protection agency in the U.S. federal government, is charged with protecting the public health. Under this mandate, it regulates drugs and medical devices for their safety and effectiveness. But is it a failing mandate? It's long been argued that the FDA's long and costly approval processes stifle innovation and keep life-changing treatments from the market. But the question remains: when it comes to public health, is it ever okay to sacrifice safety for speed? duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Moyers & Company [#235H] What Are We Doing In Syria? With the probability of American intervention, Syria is everywhere in the news. This week Phil Donahue, filling in for Bill Moyers, speaks with NPR Middle East correspondent Deborah Amos and historian and Vietnam veteran Andrew Bacevich about the possible repercussions of our actions in the Middle East.
    As he has so often in recent years, historian and analyst Andrew Bacevich is asking the important questions about America's role in the world and specifically why we should go into Syria. Is a military response justified and if we take action, where does it stop? A graduate of West Point and Vietnam veteran, he served for 23 years in the military before becoming a professor at Boston University. His new book, Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country, asks whether our reliance on a professional military rather than a citizen's army has lured us into a morass of endless war - a trap that threatens not only our global reputation but democracy itself.
    Among its deadly side effects, the war in Syria has created a refugee crisis beyond that country's borders - a "disgraceful humanitarian calamity" and "the great tragedy of this century," according to the UN. Deborah Amos is a veteran National Public Radio Middle East correspondent. She wrote about the exiled and dispossessed of the region in her book Eclipse of the Sunnis: Power, Exile, and Upheaval in the Middle East and has been in the refugee camps and on the Syrian front lines. Amos joins Donahue for a discussion of the human toll of the Syrian fighting, and the potential impact of millions of displaced people on the region.
    As members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee reached an agreement late Tuesday on wording of a new resolution authorizing US military force against the Syrian government, events will likely change quickly. What won't have changed is the need for a full discussion of our motives and American foreign policy, not just when it comes to Syria but in the entire Middle East.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5310H] The debate over US intervention in Syria played out in Washington and on the global stage this week. There were hearings on Capitol Hill and President Obama presented his arguments for military involvement during an overseas news conference ahead of the G-20 meetings in Russia. President Obama insists that the credibility of the US, Congress and the international community is on the line over any response to Syria's alleged use of chemical weapons. During congressional hearings Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated that the US has evidence that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has used chemical weapons including sarin nerve gas against civilians, most recently on August 21. House Speaker John Boehner and Arizona Senator John McCain are among the Republicans supporting President Obama's plan, but the Obama administration is also facing bipartisan push back against US involvement in Syria's civil war as lawmakers cite home-district opposition to any military action. Gwen Ifill examines the high-stakes risks and consequences of a U.S. led attack on Syria with: David Sanger of The New York Times, John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News, Susan Davis of USA Today, and Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    UC LEADERSHIP TRANSITION - As Mark Yudof bids farewell as president of the University of California, we look at his legacy and challenges faced by the public university system moving forward.

    AMERICA'S CUP MAKES WAVES - The America's Cup finals begin on Saturday, pitting Larry Ellison's Oracle Team USA against Emirates Team New Zealand in a best-of-17 series that could last two weeks. Meanwhile, illegal weights on a Team USA catamaran have resulted in what are being described as the harshest penalties in the history of the sailing competition. The team was docked two points and fined $ 250,000 and a jury banned three team members from further participation in this year's races.
    NEW IPHONE - Expectations are mounting for Apple to introduce new iPhone models on September 10. Updates to the current iPhone 5, new color choices, and the availability of a lower-priced model are rumored to be announced next Tuesday. Apple's event comes amid speculation about the company's strategy for pursuing a greater market share overseas, particularly in China.
    Guests: Ana Tintocalis, KQED News; Julian Guthrie, San Francisco Chronicle; and Kara Swisher, All Things Digital
    BURNING MAN BEYOND THE PLAYA - Every year for one week, bold, super-sized works of art spring to life in a harsh desert playa in Nevada. Burning Man, with hundreds of original works and more than 60, 000 attendees, has become North America's largest outdoor art festival. Host Thuy Vu meets the Flaming Lotus Girls, a female-driven team of Bay Area artists who are pushing themselves to the limit to create an enormous metal tree stump with fire-breathing fungi. Vu also examines how the Burning Man art scene has blossomed beyond the desert, with iconic sculptures transplanted to urban settings and even major civic installations like The Bay Lights.
