Moyers & Company The New Robber Barons America's first Gilded Age, more than a century ago, was a time of vast riches and conspicuous consumption, as well as degrading poverty. "It wasn't merely that poverty lived alongside great wealth," historian Steve Fraser tells Bill Moyers on this week's Moyers & Company, "It's that poverty was being created by great wealth." Senators and Representatives were owned by Wall Street and Big Business, and then, as now, those who footed the bill for political campaigns were richly rewarded with favorable laws. We've just watched the Senate and the House -- aided and abetted by President Obama -- pay off financial interests with provisions in the new spending bill that expand the amount of campaign cash wealthy donors can give and let banks off the hook for gambling with customer( and taxpayer) money. The social safety net, Fraser says, has been "shredded to a very significant degree." But what was different about the first Gilded Age is that people rose in rebellion. Today we do not see "that enormous resistance." Nonetheless, he concludes, "people are increasingly fed up... their voices are not being heard. And I think that can only go on for so long without there being more and more outbreaks of what used to be called class struggle, class warfare." Steve Fraser is a writer, editor and scholar of American history. Among his books are Every Man a Speculator, Wall Street: America's Dream Palace and Labor Will Rule. His latest, The Age of Acquiescence: The Life and Death of American Resistance to Organized Wealth and Power, will be published early next year.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Shoulder Arthroplasty The shoulder is a marvel of the human body. It's a "ball-and-socket" joint, where the collarbone, the shoulder blade and the upper arm bone work in tandem to provide arm flexibility. A strong healthy shoulder is necessary for even the simplest movements. But repetitive movement can overstress the shoulder joints and result in tendon tears, instability, and fractures. When this happens, one of the remedies may be shoulder arthroplasty, a procedure that replaces shoulder bones with an artificial shoulder. In this program we will explore the delicate workings of the shoulder, educate viewers on shoulder arthroplasty, and hear from patients who have benefited from this procedure.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Pancreatic Cancer Hidden between the stomach and backbone, and surrounded by the liver and intestines, is one of the most important organs of the body - the pancreas. Without its digestive enzymes, our bodies could not break down food. Insulin is also made in the pancreas. Pancreatic cancer is difficult to diagnose early, primarily because the symptoms are often vague at first. Eventually patients may detect a yellowing of the skin and eyes, pain in the abdomen and back, weight loss and fatigue. Because this cancer is often discovered late, it typically has time to spread to other organs of the body. In this program, we will look at the risk factors, signs, symptoms, and diagnostic techniques for pancreatic cancer. We will also discuss the importance of patient care, improving patients' quality of life, and the latest research underway for this disease.

Like folksong collectors Alan Lomax and Anne and Frank Warner, Porter captured many songs just before the last living tradition bearers died. The Marjorie L. Porter Collection of North Country Folklore consists of more than 300 traditional ballads, songs from lumber camps and iron mines, Irish and French-Canadian songs, and Iroquois chants. The collection also includes dozens of oral histories and Porter's collected writings.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Boynton House: The Next Hundred Years FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S BOYNTON HOUSE: THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS provides an exclusive look inside the painstaking process of restoring and rehabilitating a historic home. Even today, the Boynton House — one of the few Frank Lloyd Wright creations still functioning as a private, single-family residence instead of a museum — stands out among the traditional Tudors and colonials that line the streets of its Rochester, New York neighborhood. Built in 1908, the Boynton House exemplifies Wright's signature "Prairie style," with its gently sloping roofs, long bands of windows, wide overhangs, low terraces, private gardens, open floor plan and built-in furnishings. Over time, however, this national treasure fell into disrepair, ravaged by 100 years of weather, termites and wear-and-tear. In 2010, new owners Fran Cosentino and Jane Parker set out to restore Boynton House to its original splendor, following Wright's design concepts and architectural philosophy. Cosentino guides cameras through every phase of the transformation, including the restoration of art glass panels and cantilevered front porch, the replacement of the roof, the addition of a three-car garage and back porch, and the conservation of original furniture.

Or will the experience do little to change these men? Can religion keep these convicts from almost inevitably return to lock-up? Prison ministry leaders, including the late Charles Colson, (of Watergate infamy), insist revivals and bible studies radically reduce the number of inmates who are re-incarcerated. Those of the secular persuasion doubt their findings, favoring traditional rehabilitation and guaranteed results.Faith considers, who should be in charge of re-entry programs in the penitentiary such as job and addiction counseling?
