    PBS NewsHour [#11046H] ISLAMIC STATE- A video released today by the Islamic State militant group claims to show the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff. Sotloff appeared briefly in the August 19 video showing the beheading of another American journalist, James Foley. In that video, Foley's killer threatened that Sotloff would suffer the same fate if US air strikes continued in Iraq. Today's video threatened the life of a third hostage, British aid worker David Cawthorne Haines. Judy Woodruff debriefs with Charles Sennott, co-founder of GlobalPost. She then discusses the horrific killing with Douglas Ollivant, a senior national security fellow with the New America Foundation, Anne-Marie Slaughter, president and CEO of the New America Foundation, and Daniel Benjamin, director of the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth University.
    EBOLA - Public health officials have voiced concern over the growing Ebola outbreak in West Africa. They say that it could destabilize countries in the region, and warn that the window is closing to keep it contained. Jeffrey Brown examines the outbreak and its potential impact with Dr. Tom Frieden, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who has just returned from West Africa.
    PRIVACY HACK - The theft of celebrities' personal photos, which were posted online without their consent Sunday, have raised questions over just how secure personal information is online. Judy Woodruff has the story.
    CHINA ORPHANS - As part of his "Agents for Change" series, NewsHour correspondent Fred de Sam Lazaro reports on one woman's efforts to change the way orphans are cared for in China.

    Global Voices [#714] Here Comes Uncle Joe He is not their uncle, and his name is not Joe. But to the old ladies of An-dong, a rural community in southeastern Korea, Uncle Joe is almost the only contact they have with the modern world. As the young leave these rural areas to acquire higher education and to find high salary jobs in the cities, there are no services or people to support old people. In this situation, Uncle Joe becomes the only man for the old.
    However, his road taken isn't always happy. Because of their advanced years, Joe often encounters his old customer-friends' misery and death. Moreover, as he reflects on his life, he faces his inner conflict and shame. In this film, we see how Uncle Joe serves these communities with humor and attention, how love and friendship are infused in life, and how he overcomes his conflicts with his friends.

    America Reframed [#211] Drivers Wanted This program reveals the impossibly eclectic community inhabiting a taxi garage in Queens, New York. Each day, a million New Yorkers depend on the anonymous faces behind the wheels, the men who tirelessly drive the city that doesn't sleep. The film follows Eric, a new immigrant from China with a fresh start in America. With dreams of his own business, and a wife and two young sons to support, he turns to a simple job - driving a taxicab. But the easy route proves to be a Herculean struggle for Eric, who can neither speak the language of his customers nor navigate the city's 6,174 miles of streets. Along for Eric's ride, we meet classic New York personalities, including the city's oldest taxi driver, the rumored inspiration behind Danny DeVito's Louie DePalma, and a melting pot of immigrants with dreams of making it in America. duration 54:16   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

All this comes as NATO leaders prepare to meet at a summit in Wales where the crisis in Ukraine is likely to be one of the items at the top of the agenda. Chief foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Warner shares her analysis.

Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]
