    @Home This documentary journeys through the landscape of a forgotten America, introducing the invisible communities of people living without permanent housing. It examines the crisis of homelessness through the lens of eactivist Mark Horvath, who harnesses social media's potential to democratize and empower the less fortunate.
    The program follows Horvath on a whirlwind road trip across the country, from Las Vegas to Arkansas to Pittsburgh, as he interviews newly and chronically homeless people in tent cities, under bridges and at by-the-week motels. These individuals challenge stereotypes by sharing their stories and revealing their simple but life-changing wishes for a place to live, a job and the ability to help others. The film also explores the toll homelessness took on Horvath, too, as he shares his fight to rebuild his life while devoting himself to helping others.

    Closing The Gap: 50 Years Seeking Equal Pay Half a century after President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, women in both high-paying, high-growth STEM careers and those in part-time, low-wage jobs still only make, on average, 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. In that time span, the current wage gap improved at a rate of less than half a cent per year; if it continues at that pace, the wage gap will not close completely until 2053.
    Month to month, women - primary or co-breadwinners in 6 out of every 10 American families - face greater financial burdens in meeting living costs such as food, housing, transportation, health care and child care. The wage gap also limits their options to afford education. And across the span of a lifetime, women face less financial stability heading into retirement, with fewer pensions and lower Social Security payments to sustain them.
    In front of a live studio audience, this program scrutinizes hotly debated statistics and moves beyond highly politicized and over-simplified talking points to explore the factors contributing to the wage gap and strategize on ways to attain equal pay. CNBC's Sharon Epperson serves as the program host, with guests including the namesake of the 2009 Fair Pay Act, Lilly Ledbetter; National Organization for Women (NOW) President Terry O'Neill, American Association of University Women (AAUW) Executive Director and CEO Linda Hallman, Ms. Foundation for Women CEO Teresa Younger and YWCA-USA CEO Dr. Dara Richardson-Heron.
    The program offers advice for overcoming wage secrecy policies in the workplace and researching fair salaries for jobs; considers pathways to improved public policies; arms women with the information and skills they need to earn fair pay at all points on the career continuum; and provides tips on achieving a financially secure retirement.

    Nature [#3110] Snow Monkeys In the frigid valleys of Japan's Shiga Highlands, a troop of snow monkeys make their way and raise their families in a complex society of rank and privilege where each knows their place. Their leader is still new to the job and something of a solitary grouch. But one little monkey, innocently unaware of his own lowly social rank, reaches out to this lonely leader, forming a bond with him that manages over time to warm his less than sunny disposition. It is a rare and remarkable gesture that alters both their lives. Changing seasons bring new babies to care for, a profusion of insects and blossoms to eat, family disagreements to squabble over and tragedies to overcome. Mating season brings competition for females as the days grow shorter and colder in a rush toward winter. But with their now confident leader to guide them and their families to shelter and care for them, this troop of snow monkeys is ready to face the world. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
