However, manufacturers are saying that they have exhausted their supplies of the medicine. Judy Woodruff discusses the situation with Lawrence Gostin, director of the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University and Jonathan D. Moreno, a professor medical ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania.
    IRAQ - The US has again struck Islamic State fighters in Northern Iraq, it is also continuing to air drop humanitarian aid to trapped Yazidi refugees. One overloaded aid helicopter crashed today, killing the pilot and injuring passengers, including a New York Times journalist and photographer, as well as a Yazidi member of parliament. Gwen Ifill has the story.

    America Reframed [#206] Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea Once known as the California Riviera, the Salton Sea is now called one of America's worst ecological disasters: a fetid, stagnant, salty lake, that coughs up dead fish and birds by the thousands in frequent die-offs that occur. However, amongst the ruins of this man-made mistake, a few remaining eccentrics (a roadside nudist, a religious folk artist, a Hungarian revolutionary, and real estate speculators) struggle to keep a remodeled version of the original Salton Sea dream alive. Accidentally created by an engineering error in 1905, reworked in the 50's as a world class vacation destination for the rich and famous, suddenly abandoned after a series of hurricanes, floods, and fish die-offs, and finally almost saved by Congressman Sonny Bono, the Salton Sea has a bittersweet past. The film shares these people's stories and their difficulties in keeping their unique community alive, as the nearby cities of Los Angeles and San Diego attempt to take the agricultural water run-off that barely sustains the Salton Sea. While covering the historical, economic, political, and environmental issues that face the Sea, this program offers an offbeat portrait of the peculiar and individualistic people who populate its shores. It is an epic western tale of fantastic real estate ventures and failed boomtowns, inner-city gangs fleeing to white small town America, and the subjective notion of success and failure amidst the ruins of the past. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Knee Deep This program follows a culturally diverse group of dedicated senior citizens who are pooling their collective knowledge for a common cause: the environmental health of the Delaware Valley's waterways. The Park Senior Environment Corps is quietly generating scientific data that someday will feed into a global database documenting the long-term health of the world's rivers and streams, and possibly spur changes in the management of water and waste. The documentary also highlights how the volunteer organization prioritized environmental education within their community, particularly with schoolchildren. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Global Voices [#711] Diamond in the Dunes This film is the true story of hope and baseball in China's Xinjiang Province - a region harshly divided between an indigenous Muslim minority and the ruling Han Chinese. It follows Parhat Ablat, a 20-year-old Uyghur shepherd, as he attends the region's racially segregated Xinjiang University and forms an integrated baseball team.
    Parhat is on a fraught quest to raise his people out of what he calls their "spirit sickness." While at the helm of Xinjiang University's first mixed-race team, he also starts a baseball program at a minority elementary school. For Parhat, baseball is more than a game; it's a vehicle for spiritual transformation. Finally, after a year of practice in the shadow of tense ethnic relations, Parhat and the university team travel 2000 miles for their only game of the season - against a team of Tibetans on the Qinghai Plateau.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      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 […]
