    Life On Fire [#105] Ash Runners Around the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, life has struggled for thousands of years to re-emerge from the ashes. Underground, vampire and other bat species have colonized the miles of tunnels created by hot flowing magma. In the crater, parakeets and vultures have made nests on cliffs exposed to toxic gases. On the flanks of this still active mountain, the vegetation has been burnt away by lava flows leaving barren stretches that are recolonized over hundreds of years. At the foot of the volcano, fields, pastures and towns have grown over the oldest lava flows. In this harsh environment, nature struggles to conquer ash and lava before the next eruption erases its efforts ... and the phoenix must rise again. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1709] PREDICTING VIOLENCE - Adrian Raine, Chair of the Criminology Department at the University of Pennsylvania, has studied the brain scans of violent killers for the last 35 years. In his controversial book, The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime, Raine proposes that brain scans can be used not only to predict violence but prevent it. But, as Lucky Severson reports, Raine's research raises ethical issues. Paul Wolpe, the Director of Emory University's Center for Ethics, says he "cannot think of anything more dangerous" than Raine's policy recommendations.
    REZA ASLAN'S ZEALOT - Last week, there were 3 books about Jesus in the top 15 New York Times' bestsellers, including Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, which has been on the list for 14 consecutive weeks. In Zealot, author Reza Aslan describes Jesus as an illiterate, zealous revolutionary who ultimately failed in his mission to liberate the Jews from Roman occupation. The book has generated debate among scholars and believers alike. Kim Lawton talks with Aslan about the assertions in his book and the controversy surrounding them.

    Racing The Rez For the Navajo and Hopi, running is much more than a sport, it is woven into the cultural fabric of their lives. Encouraged by their elders, many Navajos and Hopis begin running at an early age - to greet the morning sun, to prepare for a ceremony or simply to challenge themselves in the vast, southwestern landscape. In the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona, Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools vie for the state championship while striving to find their place among their native people and the larger American culture. Win or lose, what they learn over the course of two racing seasons has a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.
    Combining interviews with verite-style shooting, this documentary offers a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life, from the point of view of five teenage boys on the cusp of adulthood. It follows Ryan, Dennis, Billy, Johnny and Joyai from the classrooms to their remote, un-electrified homes, from grueling runs across canyons and mesas to their ultimate day of reckoning - the state meet - and beyond.

    POV [#2506H] Up Heartbreak Hill Thomas and Tamara are track stars at their rural New Mexico high school. Like many teenagers, they are torn between the lure of brighter futures elsewhere and the ties that bind them to home. For these teens, however, home is an impoverished town on the Navajo reservation, and leaving means separating from family, tradition and the land that has been theirs for generations. Erica Scharf's "Up Heartbreak Hill" is a look at a new generation of Americans struggling to be both Native and modern. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Moyers & Company [#243H] The Top Secret Trade Deal You Need to Know About You may remember how in the '90's the Clinton Administration talked us into NAFTA - the North American Free Trade Agreement - with the promise of jobs and cheaper goods. According to economist Dean Baker, in the end, NAFTA wound up helping corporations and didn't do much for American workers. In fact, there are economists who say that in the US, NAFTA cost nearly a million jobs.
    Now, there's another trade deal in the works that's even bigger - "NAFTA on steroids" as some describe it. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a coalition of North and South American and Asian trading partners that many believe could give multinational corporations even greater freedom to ignore borders and run roughshod over individual countries and the rule of law. At least that's what it may be about - negotiations are being carried on in secret and very little about the terms has leaked out. But enough is known to worry about the implications of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and its possible effect on trade unions and our copyright and patent laws, not to mention environmental, health and safety regulations.
    This week, Bill Moyers discusses the Trans-Pacific Partnership with two perceptive observers of the global economy. Yves Smith, an expert on investment banking, runs the Naked Capitalism blog, a go-to site for information and insight on the business and ethics of finance. Dean Baker is co-director of the progressive Center for Economic and Policy Research in Washington, DC. and has worked as a consultant to Congress and the World Bank.
    * Also on this week's broadcast, a preview of filmmaker Robert Greenwald's new documentary, Unmanned: America's Drone Wars. The release coincided with a first: victims of deadly drone attacks testified at a special briefing for members of Congress. In this week's show we feature clips from the film, which shares testimony, stories, and alarming news on the fatal impact of our drone strategy.
    * And a Bill Moyers essay on Obamacare's rocky rollout.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#103H] Voters to Decide on SF Waterfront Fight and Marc Benioff Weighs in on Corporate Responsibility
    San Francisco Waterfront Fight
    On Tuesday, San Francisco voters will decide the fate of a controversial waterfront development near the city's ferry building. If Propositions B and C are approved, 134 units of luxury condos will be built along the waterfront — with space for small businesses, a public park and other amenities. But opponents say it's the wrong kind of housing in the wrong location.

    Priced Out: Bay Area Affordability Crisis
    Housing prices are soaring again and rents are rising higher than ever in the Bay Area, particularly in San Francisco, with some of the highest housing costs in the country. Many are being priced out of the market. A new tech boom is helping to fuel the demand while federal and state funding is being cut, leaving limited resources for affordable and low-income housing. What planning and policy solutions are being considered to help?

    Marc Benioff on Corporate Responsibility
    As a driving force behind salesforce.com, Marc Benioff, the co-founder and CEO, has made giving back some of his San Francisco-based company's fortune a part of the business plan. His recent donation of $2.7 million to San Francisco middle schools is putting iPads into the hands of kids along with teacher training and wireless access. A $100 million gift to UC San Francisco in 2010 to build a children's hospital was one of the largest philanthropic gifts in the university's history.

    Blackfeet Encounter Uncovers the rich history and culture of the Blackfeet people of Montana, tracing the consequences of the expedition's arrival and investigates the struggles and triumphs of the Blackfeet today. In July 1806, Meriwether Lewis and another member of the Corps of Discovery killed two Blackfeet warriors and marked the only deadly clash between American Indians and the otherwise peaceful Lewis and Clark Expedition. This documentary skillfully pieces together this confrontation through accounts by tribal elders, Lewis' journal and interviews with historians reflecting both sides of the story. It also depicts the tragedies and challenges endured by the Blackfeet people during the 19th and 20th centuries, including intertribal fighting, massacres, starvation, unemployment, poverty and racism. duration 56:47   STEREO TVG

    America Reframed [#106] Trust This film begins when Marlin, an 18-year-old Hondurena, shares a hidden history about her childhood with a neighborhood youth theater company. Marlin's story is about resilience: she endured rape as young girl, survived a harsh and difficult journey from Honduras to the US, suffered further abuse at the hands of her own brother, and overcame substance addiction. The film captures the amazing response from her fellow actors and the unexpected journey her story takes them on together: they transform Marlin's story into a daring, original play and Marlin re-claims power over the narrative of her life story. "Trust" is about creativity and the unexpected resources inside youth who may be discounted because of their youth, race or ethnicity or because they come from under-resourced neighborhoods without access to arts programs. duration 1:24:54   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
