NOVA Lethal Seas Marine scientists across the world are hunting for clues to one of the greatest environmental catastrophes facing our planet today: ocean acidification. For years we've known the ocean absorbs about a quarter of the carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere. But as carbon emissions continue to rise, seawater chemistry is changing, and the ocean's acidity is increasing. As a result, many marine animals struggle to form the skeletons and shells vital for their survival. From the planet's poles to the tropics, thousands of species are in danger. NOVA takes viewers to the front lines of this burgeoning crisis. At Oregon's Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery, we see where an entire batch of 100 million oyster larvae died within days. On the other side of the world, nestled among the volcanic islands of Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea, a striking coral garden may be being poisoned by a stream of carbon dioxide bubbles erupting from cracks in the ocean floor. Is this a vision of the future? How will the ocean's incredible creatures adapt and evolve in the face of this challenge? NOVA joins scientists from around the world as they race to save our oceans from an uncertain fate.

Rivers & Rails: Daggers of the Civil War Tennessee prospered in the mid 19th century in large part as a result of the easy transportation the rivers and railways provided.

Ultimately whoever controls the rivers and the rails in the Civil War wins the war. This explains why most of the battles in Tennessee took place near the state's rivers and railways. As a military strategy, it is straightforward and simple. But controlling the rivers and rails in the Civil War goes outside want to live in peace.

Head On Conservatives and Same Sex Marriage (the CI thing seems to have been resolved bu Patricia: Given the current divorce rates in this country, shouldn't we all be thrilled that anyone wants to marry at all? Who are we to tell someone who they can and can't marry? If two people want to commit to each other, who cares if they're of the same sex?Krista: The redefinition of marriage as a gender-free institution has led to government coercion. In states with same sex marriage, the government has shut down faith-based adoption agencies and fined business owners who decline to participate in wedding festivities. Meanwhile those who support religious liberty have been demonized and bullied. It's unfair.Patricia : Yes, there has been government over-reaching - surprise -- but we can fix that. Our bedrock goal should remain life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - and I read that as the opportunity to spend your life with someone you love, not the opportunity to deny others that right.Krista: Should we get rid of other limits on marriage like age, relatedness, and number of spouses? People already have the right to love and live with whomever they want. If the state recognizes alternative unions, does it not have the power to coerce all citizens do the same?

Head On The future of media Krista: Media is changing. Newspaper subscription is down. Blame it on the rise of alternative press, waning trust in elite institutions, or Craigslist's destruction of classified ads. What effect will it have when Americans no longer get their news from similar sources? More confirmation bias? More division? Fewer shared community values?Patricia : Blame it on the greedy investment banks that were trying to wring every possible profit out of businesses already besieged by the Internet. While that same Internet makes it easy for citizens to find information and share opinions, we'll miss the who/what/when/where of actual reporting when it's gone.Krista: I miss old fashioned reporting already. Thank goodness for Westword. Not that old media wasn't biased or inaccurate at times, but there was some pressure to retract inaccuracies. Who holds bloggers and tweeters accountable? Will consumers reject false reporting from sources they agree with? Will they even question it?Patricia: Old-fashioned reporters, columnists and commenters already had their hands full monitoring all the movers and shakers -- and now there are all these new mischief-makers. Fortunately, consumers still have some power: When they find mistakes and outright lies, they can let their thumbs do the walking.

I Am What would you do if you found out that your child is gay? Having lost the opportunity to come out to her own mother, an Indian lesbian filmmaker, now living in the US, travels across India to meet with parents of other gay and lesbian South Asians. I AM is a personal and revealing film that journeys to a country where being gay was until very recently a criminal and punishable offence. With daring determination and humor, parents in India share untold stories of their gay and lesbian children that have thus far remained in the realm of secrecy and silence. I AM is an innovative film that takes more than simply creative risks. The story and characters might be local, but it reflects a challenge that is facing a global community. It is a film about a contemporary and relevant social justice issue that questions assumptions and brings new international dialogue around sexuality and human rights.

Day it Snowed in Miami, The The Day It Snowed in Miami, a film by Joe Cardona in association with the Miami Herald and WPBT2 that chronicles Miami-Dade County's 1977 human-rights ordinance battle.The documentary's title serves as a metaphor: the ordinance that sparked the outrage was debated by commissioners on an uncharacteristically frigid night and some opponents at the time remarked that the ordinance would pass "when hell freezes over." The morning after the ordinance was approved - Jan. 19, 1977 - Miamians woke up to snowflakes for the first and, so far, only time.The ordinance and subsequent battle in South Florida between liberal supporters and conservative singer Anita Bryant's Save Our Children group, thrust gay rights into the national spotlight for the first time and the film documents the LGBT movement through the present.

NOVA Manhunt - Boston Bombers At 2:50 pm on April 15, 2013, two bomb blasts turned the Boston Marathon finish line from a scene of triumph to tragedy, leaving three dead, hundreds injured, and a city gripped by heartbreak and terror. Less than five days later, the key suspects were identified. Soon one was dead, the other in custody. How did investigators transform the chaos of the bombing into a coherent trail of clues, pointing to the accused killers? NOVA follows the manhunt step by step, examining the role modern technology-combined with old-fashioned detective work-played in cracking the case. Given hundreds of hours of surveillance and bystander videos, how did agents spot the suspects in a sea of spectators? Why couldn't facial recognition software I.D. the criminals? How much could bomb chemistry analysis, cell phone GPS, infrared imagery and crowd sourcing reveal about the secrets behind this horrific crime? With the help of top criminal investigators and anti-terrorism experts, NOVA explores which technological innovations worked - and which didn't - in the most notorious case of today, and how the world of crime fighting could be transformed tomorrow.

Growing Up Green Educational reform in the United States has largely focused on increasing test scores without changing the meaning of schooling for those expected to achieve academic success. As a result, student motivation and test scores have changed little, despite this nationwide effort. Yet, a few schools across the country have tried a different approach, focusing education around the places where students live and solving problems their communities face. However, while showing promise, these efforts have been largely isolated and piecemeal. Yet, they have helped set the stage for a unique statewide effort in Michigan, where for the first time, rural and urban schools, spanning a broad population base, will focus school reform around the environments students inhabit. Growing Up Green, a new documentary from award winning filmmaker Bob Gliner (Schools That Change Communities, Lessons From the Real World, Democracy Left Behind) focuses on this groundbreaking work which hopes to not only change the way public education is practiced, but as a result, educational and environmental outcomes as well.
