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.

Snapshot: a love story interrupted by invasion A true story of a daughter's journey through a landscape of years, memories and realities. Her journey initiated by the question "What do I know about war?" The answers are lying in an album of faded photos of her absent father, who left for Vietnam before she was born. She creates a world in which her father has a leading role. Snapshots from the album projected larger than life on a black wall bring the beautiful and ghostly characters to life. R&B tracks take us back to a high school dance floor in the 1960s in Appalachia where a White girl and Black boy kiss for the first time. The sound of a gunshot brings us back to the rice fields of Vietnam and a soldier's decision to kill or die. Carrying her past and the pain of her father's absence, a moment of dance positions her in the quest to find him.Her growing insights reveal how the forces of history, race and war affected herself and her family, and the torn fragments of her life begin to re-connect. SNAPSHOT honors her father and other Vietnam Veterans who have been lost under the avalanche of history. This play is a daring look at the truth of our past and an inspiring example of the need for us to reconcile our history --- one life at time.

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.

Moyers & Company Stiglitz on Tax Reform to Save the Middle Class This week, in an encore presentation of Moyers & Company, the Nobel Laureate economist Joseph E. Stiglitz says he's infuriated by America's growing inequality and at how the tax code has been manipulated and abused to place the burden on the earners of ordinary income -- instead of the rich and powerful most able to pay. "We already have a system that isn't working," he tells Bill Moyers. "... That has contributed to making America the most unequal society of the advanced countries... But he has a solution. Joseph Stiglitz recently published a call to action, a 27-page report for the Roosevelt Institute on how to reform our tax system and rebuild our country. "We can have a tax system that can help create a fairer society," he says. "Only ask the people at the top to pay their fair share. It's not asking a lot. It's just saying the top 1% shouldn't be paying a lower tax rate than somebody much further down the scale - [they] shouldn't have the opportunity to move money offshore." Stiglitz believes that taxes can be used as incentives: "If your taxes say we want to encourage real investments in America, then you get real investment in America... But I also believe that you have to shape incentives and that markets on their own don't necessarily shape them the right way." Now a professor at Columbia University, Joseph E. Stiglitz served as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers in the Clinton White House, as chief economist of the World Bank and is currently president of the International Economic Association. He is a best-selling author with a worldwide following that includes presidents and prime ministers.

BIG BAD BUDGET Big Bad Budget is a reality show that could change American politics forever. While Congress remains stuck in gridlock, the national debt keeps rising, now at $17.5 trillion. That's $55,000 for every man, woman and child in the U.S. So eight regular people were asked to do something about it. Four Democrats and four Republicans gathered with a goal, to balance the federal budget, something Congress cannot do. We watch as they argued, fought, and negotiated their way to a settlement, a balanced budget that both sides agreed to. Watch as they came down to the wire and made an agreement with a few minutes to spare. And once it's over, you can't help but say, "If eight regular people can do it, why can't Congress?"

Thereafter, Russell championed the needs of millions also suffering from the disease. Whether considered for her sophisticated comedy roles or dignity under duress, her humanity shines through. Narrated by Kathleen Turner, this insightful and warm profile comes on the occasion of the approach of the 75th anniversary of her breakthrough role as Sylvia Fowler in The Women (1939) and the 55th anniversary of her most famous role as Mame Dennis in Auntie Mame (1958).

Pedro Ruiz: Coming Home In January 2011, acclaimed New York City choreographer Pedro Ruiz returned to his native Cuba for an unprecedented collaboration: Ruiz worked with Cuba's premiere modern dance troupe, Danza Contemporanea de Cuba, to create a dance about Cuba. The project, allowed by special permission from both the U.S. and Cuban governments, led to Horizons, a spectacular half hour dance which premiered at Havana's Mella Theater on January 28 and had a two week run at the Joyce Theater in New York City in May. A WNET crew traveled with Ruiz to Havana (also with the permission of both the U.S. and Cuban governments) to document this cultural exchange. With our cameras rolling, we followed Pedro and the dancers though the process of creating an exquisite, innovative and deeply personal modern dance. We got to know some of Cuba's best young dancers — as artists and as human beings. We joined Pedro on a trip to his hometown, Santa Clara, his first visit there since his family left Cuba 30 years ago. There, we filmed his exuberant reunions with his godfather, who still lives in the house where Pedro was born, and his childhood best friend.When the dancers came to New York City, for their first ever trip to the United States, our cameras were rolling again to capture their feelings about a country most thought they would never have the chance to see. Pedro Ruiz: Coming Home is an hour-long documentary and performance film, telling the story of Pedro's return to Cuba and showing viewers some of the most innovative, breathtaking modern dance we have ever seen. We hope the film makes you look at dance, and at Cuba in a new way. And we hope it shows the power of art to transform lives and cross divides.

THE DAY IT SNOWED IN MIAMI 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.
