    Tavis Smiley [#2568Z] "Made Visible" Panel Discussion, Part 1 of 3
    Poverty in America officially has a new face: women. More than half of the 46.2 million Americans living in poverty are women, and 29% of adult women are more likely to be poor than adult men. From 2009 to 2010, more than 1 million additional children also fell into poverty, and the numbers continue to rise. < br />This month, Tavis convenes a diverse all-woman panel of thought leaders, opinion makers and influencers to examine the growing numbers of women and children falling into poverty. The discussion airs over three nights. Panelists discuss the financial, social and economic disparities women face and how solutions to these issues must be a public policy priority during this election season. Additionally, the panelists make recommendations for national action to move women and children out of poverty.
    In Part 1, panelists discuss the financial, social and economic disparities that women face in the US. Guests include: Nely Galan, founder of The Adelante Movement; Dr. Julianne Malveaux, economist and president of Bennett College; Suze Orman, a leading authority on personal finance; Hilda Solis, 25th US Secretary of Labor; Cecilia FireThunder, former president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe; Faye Wattleton, former national president of Planned Parenthood; Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers; and Sheryl WuDunn, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and co-author of Half the Sky.

    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1405] The Dark Side of the Universe Alan Alda joins some of the world's leading astronomers as they wrestle with the startling implications of their latest discoveries: that everything we can see, from the world around us to the most distant galaxies, is only a tiny fraction of the entire cosmos. Most of what's out there is dark - either dark matter or dark energy. And our universe is perhaps only one in an infinity of universes. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Atlantic Crossing: A Robot's Daring Mission Visionary oceanographer Scott Glenn leads a team of passionate and daring scientists as they race against time to launch the first autonomous underwater robot across the vast and dangerous Atlantic Ocean. Destined for Spain, the 8-foort bright yellow robot named RU27, or "Scarlet," is launched off the coast of New Jersey. Throughout her journey, data collected by Scarlet is fed into oceanographic navigation and forecasting models. Engulfed by the powerful ocean, our robot hero faces extreme weather conditions, ship traffic and aggressive sea life that can terminate her mission. With limited power and never before tested hardware, Scarlet faces daunting challenges. Fighting currents and storms, she breaks world records. When unknown ocean organisms begin attaching to Scarlet, scientists risk their lives in the high seas of the mid-Atlantic to free her of biological growth. If Scarlet can successfully cross the vast Atlantic Ocean, her historic mission will inspire a future robotic oceanographic observation network critical for monitoring and predicting climate change. The robot hero, "Scarlet" now has her own exhibit in the Smithsonian Museum's Ocean Hall. "Atlantic Crossing" has been screened at the Liberty Science Center, Smithsonian Museum, NOAA and US State Department as well as 8 international film festivals. duration 57:02   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 8:00 am
    Arctic Air: A Greenlandic Journey with the 109th This program captures the commitment of scientists and military flight crews in a frozen land of incredible beauty but where danger always lurks. Meet the men and women who transport supplies, cargo and staff to and from Greenland in temperatures that threaten to freeze their planes' fuel and hydraulic fluid. See the camps where American and international teams of scientists seek to unlock mysteries of the past buried deep within the polar ice cap to help provide answers to some of today's most important questions about climate change and global warning. The environment is harsh and the specialized training is intense, they are dedicated to this unique and critical mission on behalf of our planet. This is an adventure not to be missed! duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
