    Survival: Lives in the Balance [#101] The Struggle to Breathe (Philippines) Nineteen-month old Nazario can barely breathe. He has pneumonia, the world's number one child killer. Nazario has been coughing for weeks. Burns scar the toddler's chest where a traditional healer splattered hot wax to ward off evil spirits. The build up of fluid in Nazario's lungs and chest cavity have pushed his windpipe and his heart across his body. His parents have finally taken him to the hospital. They have never heard of pneumonia, even though in the Philippines one in every five children under the age of five suffers from the disease. World wide, pneumonia kills two million children every year. Now throughout the Philippines, every day people are armed with training to help parents recognize pneumonia in time to provide life-saving treatment. duration 50:40   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Survival: Lives in the Balance [#102] Distant Places, Forgotten Lives (Niger) Tropical diseases threaten a billion people in the world today. Most of those people live in countries that do not have the resources to combat these diseases. In a striking move, a group of pharmaceutical companies pledged to donate enough drugs to target five tropical diseases that affect tens of millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa. They then faced a dilemma: how to effectively deliver these drugs to millions of people. The elegant solution came from the people themselves. Community leaders appointed trusted individuals to receive training to distribute the medicines. The drugs are safe and can be administered widely to at-risk groups. The plan works, but only buys time until better sanitation and safer housing allow the people in these villages to live healthier lives. duration 50:30   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Moyers & Company [#313H] All Work and No Pay You've heard about the wave of protests against fast food chains like McDonald's and Burger King where employees are forced to live on next to nothing. Workers in regular, sit-down restaurants are also penalized. Back in 1991, the National Restaurant Association - often called "the other NRA" - passed around enough campaign contributions to persuade Congress to set the Federal minimum wage for waiters, busboys, and bartenders at only $2.13 an hour. They claim that tips are additional income that makes up the difference. But tips are random and often meager. Restaurant workers struggling to earn a living are twice as likely to be on public assistance.
    This week, Bill Moyers talks with Saru Jayaraman, co-founder and co-director of ROC-United - the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, whose 13, 000 members across the country are fighting for better wages and working conditions. Because ROC has been making headway, they've got powerful enemies, including Rick Berman, a Washington-based lawyer and PR man, dubbed "Dr. Evil" by 60 Minutes, who specializes in industry-funded attack campaigns against health and safety regulations, the minimum wage and organized labor.
    "In any other context, what is it called when an employer practically doesn't pay their workers, full-time workers? It's called slavery," Saru Jayaraman tells Moyers. "So how is it that a major industry has basically convinced America, convinced Congress, that they practically shouldn't have to pay their workers at all? It's purely money and power. And their control over our legislators."
    But she remains hopeful: "There's nothing that people cannot achieve once they expose those forces and once they resist. We can actually overcome even the most hardened, monied lobbyists in Washington, DC, or in states around the country. Because ultimately, if we are a true democracy, we cannot cede our democratic powers to these people."
    Saru Jayaraman is also director of the Food Labor Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley and the author of Behind the Kitchen Door.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#123H] State Sen. Leland Yee Indicted, 'Weed Land' and Poking Fun at Silicon Valley
    State Sen. Leland Yee Indicted by Federal Grand Jury
    A federal grand jury has indicted State Sen. Leland Yee, former San Francisco School Board President Keith Jackson and 27 other defendants charging them with crimes including firearms trafficking, money laundering and public corruption. The indictment formalizes federal charges first announced last week. Yee has hired a new attorney and is expected to make his first court appearance next week. Jackson was released on bail Thursday evening. Meanwhile, the capture of Chinatown gang figure Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow has not eased fears among business owners in the neighborhood.

    'Weed Land'
    It's been nearly 20 years since California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana. In recent years, the number of dispensaries has exploded with more than 200 operating in the Bay Area alone and crop production is booming. The billion-dollar industry is largely unregulated in the state and illegal under federal law. A recent poll shows Californians are divided on legalization. Scott Shafer speaks with Sacramento Bee senior writer Peter Hecht, whose new book "Weed Land" explores the highs and lows of the cannabis industry.

    The quirks of the high-tech lifestyle are easy fodder for humor. The new HBO series "Silicon Valley," premiering Sunday, serves up a parody of the region. Series co-creator Mike Judge's new show features a collection of awkward, geeky characters who think they've come up with the next big app. But underlying the humor are some serious issues for local residents. We take a look at the funny and not-so-funny aspects of Silicon Valley culture including tech's emphasis on youth, and the ongoing backlash against the Google bus invasion.

    Earth: The Operators' Manual Humans need energy. We always have and always will. But if we continue to burn fossil fuels until they're all used up, we'll cook our planet through the inevitable warming effects of carbon dioxide. But we don't have to do that: there are many sustainable energy options. If we look at Earth as if we have an operators' manual, we can create clean energy for a growing population, bring power to the billion and a half who live off the grid, improve the environment and create an age of technological innovation full of new "green" jobs. Hosted by Penn State geologist Richard Alley, and taped on location worldwide (New Zealand, Brazil, China, Morocco and Spain, and all across the United States) the program includes case studies of how and why the US military is reducing its "carbon bootprint," targeting emissions levels and energy efficiencies more ambitious than many nations. The program also looks at wind energy and communities coming back to life in West Texas, and provides hard numbers on how much power we can harvest from other sustainable resources such as solar, geothermal and biomass. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVG

The white gyr falcon is enormous, the largest and most powerful falcon in the world. Yet last summer, the nesting falcon pair here failed to raise any young. The rare Arctic wolves rely on every member of the pack to chase and bring down the prey that keeps them alive. Last year was good to them, and they raised three cubs.

Wild bears, wolves and big cats are all in retreat, and a growing number of scientists are discovering that by eliminating predators, we have changed the environment. Removing predators from the wild has thrown ecosystems off-kilter, triggering domino effects that scientists are just beginning to understand. In "Wild Predator Invasion," NOVA follows scientists who are trying out a simple but controversial solution: returning apex predators --like wolves, bears, and panthers -- to their natural environments.
