Head On CO results KRISTA: Colorado has officially turned from blue to purple. Republican Cory Gardner beat Senator Mark Udall. Republicans also won races for Secretary of State, Attorney General, and Treasurer and a majority in the state senate. They almost secured the state house and governor's office. Even their ballot initiative against teacher unions succeeded. SUSAN: I'm not so sure. I'd say the split state legislature - R's took back the Senate by the narrowest of margins - one vote. Dems continue to control the House. Bright purple Hickenlooper won. I'd paint a more cautious picture. Coloradans are no-nonsense independents - pragmatists not ideologues.KRISTA: A mix of independent-minded libertarians, conservatives, moderates, and liberals keeps Colorado elections interesting. Thanks to the TABER amendment's limits on tax and spending, the pendulum can only swing so far. Also, Republicans finally modernized their strategies for messaging and turning out votes, making them more competitive than in previous years. SUSAN: Cory Gardner did a fine job of tailoring his message to statewide, bright purple voters as did CD 6 incumbent Mike Coffman. Your party's gubernatorial candidate - Bob Beauprez did a rerun of the same luddite campaign he lost in 2006. Colorado's elections are predictably UNPREDICTABLE!

Head On What should the new Congress do KRISTA: Voters gave Republicans a mandate to lead. They should repeal Obamacare, encourage affordable energy development, cut spending, fix the tax code, reform entitlements, reduce regulations and balance the budget. If the president vetoes these popular, commonsense reforms, it will lead to more Republican gains in 2016. The voters have spoken!SUSAN: Repealing the Affordable Care Act is sure loser. The facts: millions of previously uninsured Americans have signed up. They're paying lower premiums and US healthcare costs are dropping dramatically. That horse has left the barn and is about to win the triple crown. KRISTA: Over half of Americans dislike Obamacare and believe healthcare will worsen under the law, according to new polls. Millions have lost their health insurance and now pay higher premiums and deductibles. Obamacare is headed to the Supreme Court again. If Democrats block reform they're likely to see greater losses in 2016. SUSAN: No Krista, exit polls revealed that voters most concerned about healthcare, support the Affordable Care Act by a margin of 2 to 1. If Republican house and senate majorities play that tired tune instead of addressing budget and tax policy, trade issues and infrastructure, their dominance will be short-lived.

Head On Lame duck session SUSAN: The Congressional lame duck season will reveal early clues as to whether or not both parties had their hearing aids turned on Election Night. Party leaders ought to address issues starting with approving a federal budget; reforming the business tax code; investing in aging infrastructure and confirming lagging appointments.KRISTA: Giving Republicans the largest majority in decades wasn't a subtle hint; it was a shout for change. Democrats should listen. During the lame duck session, Congress should approve the Keystone Pipeline, complete investigations into the IRS, Bengasi cover up, and other scandals and set the stage for real health care reform.SUSAN: Both parties have a lot to prove. The D's must change house and senate leadership, stop whining and move to the center. The R's need to prove - both to voters and conservative ideologues- that they can govern - translate: compromise. A tall order for both parties.KRISTA: Compromise only works when we want to go in the same basic direction. If I want to go east and you want to go west, any movement in one direction moves us away from the other. America is at a crossroads: more freedom or more government. We must choose.

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.

Head On Impact on 2016 SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Understanding Organ Donation & Transplantation The human body has 78 organs. Due to illness or injury, if one of your organs fails, you may need a transplant. An organ transplant is when doctors remove a healthy organ from one person and place it in the body of another. The organ may come from a living donor or a deceased donor. Whatever the origin, becoming an organ donor offers hope to thousands of people each year in need of a transplant. Daily, about 79 people receive an organ transplant. Eighteen others, however, will die waiting for a transplant that can't take place because of an organ shortage. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the waiting list. Among the major organs regularly transplanted are heart, lung, pancreas and small intestine. However, the two organs most consistently transplanted are the kidney and the liver. In this program, we will discuss the importance of organ donation and transplantation, hear from leading researchers in the field, visit with patients and family members whose lives have been changes by having received an organ transplant, and go to "The Transplant Games" in Houston, Texas, as donation recipients show firsthand how organ transplantations change lives.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Xmas Without China Pride and mischief inspire Chinese immigrant Tom Xia to challenge his American neighbors to survive the Christmas season without any Chinese products. The Jones family eagerly accepts this consumer mission-impossible and is drawn into an intercultural exchange with the Xia family. As the Joneses strive to adapt without their Chinese-made appliances and Christmas lights, Tom hopes that they'll begin to appreciate his birthplace.

XMAS WITHOUT CHINA is a playful yet poignant exploration of America's increasing interdependence with China in a time when, as President Obama says, "the relationship between the United States and China will shape the 21st century."

Neal Cassady - The Denver Years NEAL CASSADY: THE DENVER YEARS is a documentary based on the autobiographical accounts of Neal Cassady, his troubled youth in Denver and the crucial role that it played in the germination of American beat culture. Neal Cassady was a charismatic, larger then life character. His charm, manic energy, sexual swagger, and free flowing verbosity made him the authentic 'hero' of the beat generation.

The film is directed and produced by Heather Dalton and produced by Joshua Hassel in association with CPT12, the presenting station.

What shaped the most infamous 20th century muse? A love affair between Denver, a culture in transition, and some of the most influential writers of our time. He was introduced to the world as Dean Moriarty in Jack Kerouac’s classic, On The Road and for controversial literary figures Allen Ginsberg, Ken Kesey, Tom Wolfe and Hunter S. Thompson, Cassady was more then a friend – he was their muse and inspiration.

Just by being himself, Neal Cassady created a foundation for the beat generation and set the wheels in motion for the counter culture revolution that would open up the floodgates for decades of free thinkers to follow.
 
The film features interviews with prominent and historical figures including Carolyn Cassady, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, David Amram, John Allen Cassady, Jami Cassady Ratto, Cathy Cassady Sylvia, Jerry Cimino, Tom Noel, Ed White and Al Hinkle.

Mind of a Chef; The Curry How did curry become so popular in England? When colonial occupiers returned to England, they brought back an appetite for fiery Indian cuisine. Ultimately, this craving resulted in the mass production of the pulverized spice blend known as curry powder. British curries caught on, with chicken tikka masala, which combines grilled, marinated chicken cubes with a hearty tomato-cream sauce, becoming England's national dish. In this episode, April explores the originals and her homeland's versions of this historic cuisine. Legendary cookbook author Madhur Jaffrey takes April to her favorite curry spot in New York City, then cooks. In London, April hangs with her chef friend Stevie Perle and makes and eats English and Pakistani curries. Harold McGee breaks down the magic of curry.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

The United States Naval Academy Glee Club with members of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra and world-renowned guest soloists create a unique performance of one of the greatest choral works in Western music. Recorded at the Beautiful Chapel on the grounds of the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.Messiah is an English-language large musical composition for orchestra, choir, and soloists composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. It was first performed in Dublin 272 years ago on April 13, 1742.The original performance highlighted Jennens's text is an extended reflection on Jesus Christ as Messiah. The text begins in Part 1 with prophecies by Isaiah and others, and moves to the annunciation to the shepherds, the only "scene" taken from the Gospels. In Part II, Handel concentrates on the Passion and ends with the "Hallelujah" chorus. In Part III he covers the resurrection of the dead and Christ's glorification in Heaven.Our program is an abridged version of the entire original work, which boasts performances by Ms. Karen Clift, Soprano, Mr. Robin Blaze, Countertenor, Mr. Gregory Kunde, Tenor, Mr. Dean Peterson, Bass, and conducted by Dr. Aaron Smith, Director of Musical Activities for the Naval Academy.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Eagles of Mercy EAGLES OF MERCY recounts a seldom-told chapter in the World War II narrative, picking up in the opening moments of D-Day. In the early hours of June 6, 1944, two young American medics with the 101st Airborne "Screaming Eagles" parachuted into France, and soon found themselves trapped in a 12th-century Norman church in the small village of Angoville-au-Plain. Medics Robert Wright and Kenneth Moore provided first aid to the first casualties of D-Day while a savage battle raged outside between American and German forces. During the documentary, Wright and Moore recount the rigors of basic training, parachuting into Normandy ahead of the amphibious landing on Utah Beach, surviving German anti-aircraft artillery and carrying on their life-saving work even when their unit retreated. EAGLES OF MERCY supplements these compelling stories with newsreel footage, re-enactments and interviews with fellow medics and residents of Angoville.

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?"

Neal Cassady - The Denver Years NEAL CASSADY: THE DENVER YEARS is a documentary based on the autobiographical accounts of Neal Cassady, his troubled youth in Denver and the crucial role that it played in the germination of American beat culture. Neal Cassady was a charismatic, larger then life character. His charm, manic energy, sexual swagger, and free flowing verbosity made him the authentic 'hero' of the beat generation.

The film is directed and produced by Heather Dalton and produced by Joshua Hassel in association with CPT12, the presenting station.

What shaped the most infamous 20th century muse? A love affair between Denver, a culture in transition, and some of the most influential writers of our time. He was introduced to the world as Dean Moriarty in Jack Kerouac’s classic, On The Road and for controversial literary figures Allen Ginsberg, Ken Kesey, Tom Wolfe and Hunter S. Thompson, Cassady was more then a friend – he was their muse and inspiration.

Just by being himself, Neal Cassady created a foundation for the beat generation and set the wheels in motion for the counter culture revolution that would open up the floodgates for decades of free thinkers to follow.
 
The film features interviews with prominent and historical figures including Carolyn Cassady, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, David Amram, John Allen Cassady, Jami Cassady Ratto, Cathy Cassady Sylvia, Jerry Cimino, Tom Noel, Ed White and Al Hinkle.

Infinity Hall Live Open Wings, Broken Strings (featuring Ed Kowalczyk, Emerson Hart and Leigh Nash) The Open Wings Broken Strings tour pulls into Infinity Hall with Ed Kowalczyk, Emerson Hart and Leigh Nash, all performing individual acoustic sets. Ed Kowalczyk, most famous as the singer/songwriter of the multi-million album-selling alternative rock band Live, performs an unplugged set of his former group's hit singles such as "I Alone" as well as his newer solo work. He is also responsible for creating the Open Wings Broken Strings Tour. Kowalczyk explained the origin of the tour's name. "At the height of songwriting epiphanies, I seem to always break strings 'cause you get so excited. Bang! The string breaks. But there's this moment where you're really soaring. Open Wings Broken Strings just kind of came out of that." Joining Kowalczyk on the tour is lead singer/songwriter Emerson Hart of another alternative rock band, Tonic. Tonic's first album, Lemon Parade, went multi-platinum with featured hits "Open Your Eyes" and "If You Could Only See,"which became radio's most played songs in 1997. In 2007, Emerson went solo and signed with EMI/Manhattan Records, continuing his successful career. His solo acoustic set brings a new intimacy to these well-known songs. Another featured artist of Open Wings Broken Strings is Leigh Nash, lead singer of Sixpence None the Richer. With hit singles like "Kiss Me," "There She Goes," and "Breathe Your Name," Sixpence None the Richer successfully reached platinum status over the past decade, along with picking up a Grammy nomination and several Dove Awards. Now Nash is offering a new perspective on the group's biggest hits as she tours with Open Wings Broken Strings. While each artist performs their own individual acoustic sets, the show features a final performance with all three artists on stage together for a cover of The Band's classic "The Weight." Infinity Hall Live allows for a wonderful experience and by hearing the instruments "stripped down, intimate and acoustic," as Kowalczyk explains it, "you'll hear the strings on the guitar vibrate and buzz."Song List "There She Goes" - Leigh Nash"Sooner Than Later" - Leigh Nash"Breathe Your Name" - Leigh Nash"Kiss Me" - Leigh Nash"Flyin'" - Emerson Hart"If You Could Only See" - Emerson Hart"If You're Gonna Leave" - Emerson Hart"I Alone" - Ed Kowalczyk"Heaven" - Ed Kowalczyk"Grace" - Ed Kowalczyk"Lightning Crashes" - Ed Kowalczyk"The Weight" - Ed Kowalczyk, Leigh Nash & Emerson Hart

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind MDS: A Disease of Abnormal Blood Cells Levels Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a group of diseases that affect the bone marrow and blood. In MDS, the blood-forming cells in the marrow slow down, or even stop. Most patients with MDS will develop anemia caused be a low number of red blood cells, and may need blood transfusions. Some patients also have low numbers of white blood cells whose job is to fight infections, and platelets which help blood clot when we're bruised or cut. About 19,000 people are diagnosed with MDS in the United States each year. And although it can affect people of any age, the majority is older than 60 years. Exposure to certain industrial chemicals or radiation can increase the risk of developing MDS. In some cases, it is caused by chemotherapy used to treat a different disease. This is called secondary MDS. In most cases though, the cause of MDS is unknown. In this program, we will explore the science behind this disease, learn from leading experts in the study and treatment of MDS, and hear the stories of patients whose lives are affected by MDS.

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?"

POV Koch New York City mayors have a world stage on which to strut and they have made legendary use of it. Yet few have matched the bravado, combativeness and egocentricity that Ed Koch brought to the office during his three terms from 1978 to 1989. As Neil Barsky's film recounts, Koch was more than the blunt, funny man New Yorkers either loved or hated. Elected in the 1970s during the city's fiscal crisis, he was a new Democrat for the dawning Reagan era — fiscally conservative and socially liberal. "Koch" finds the former mayor politically active to the end (he died in 2013) — still winning the affection of many New Yorkers while driving others to distraction.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Dinosaur Train Buddy Explores the Tyrannosaurs/Rainy Day Fight Buddy Explores the TyrannosaursBuddy, an adopted T. rex, wishes he knew more about his T. rex ancestors. So, Dad takes him and Tiny on the Dinosaur Train back to the early Cretaceous, to visit an ancestor: an earlier version of Tyrannosaurus rex called Raptorex. Rodney Raptorex is a kid who won't grow up to be as big as Buddy will, but the two boys find that they not only have a lot of differences, they have a lot in common, too. Educational Objectives There were many other types of tyrannosaurs that came before T. rex. And many of these species died out before Buddy's time. The giant T. rex evolved from ancestors that were small-bodied, long-armed, covered with feathers, and not much bigger than Velociraptor.Rainy Day FightThe kids are stuck cooped up in the nest for a long, rainy spell which leads to them fighting. Mom tells them that the rain has stopped enough that they can leave the nest - but she gives them an assignment: to go find their own "calm space," where they can calm down enough to get along with each other again. It works - each kid finds something in nature that helps him or her to calm down and be friends again.Educational Objectives After the kids have a fight, Mom sends each kid out (into nature of course) to find their calm space, and in doing so, make observations about nature that increases their connection to nature. The kids model fun ways that children can go outside and interact with nature. This story clearly makes the connection between nature exploration and emotional well-being.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Dinosaur Train The Earthquake/Nursery Car The EarthquakeMom takes the kids on a playdate with Tank Triceratops to the desert, where they meet a distant relative of Tank's, an early Ceratopsian named Penelope Protoceratops. The Conductor points out that Penelope lives in a part of the world that gets a lot of earthquakes, and sure enough, the kids experience their first quake with Penelope. Mom and the Conductor have prepared the kids with excellent advice about what to do in an earthquake, so everyone does fine.Educational ObjectivesProtoceratops belongs to one of the major groups of plant-eating dinosaurs, called ceratopsians, which also included Triceratops and Protoceratops. The surface of the earth is divided up into big chunks, called "plates," that move around, carrying the continents with them. So the world we see today is very different from the world the dinosaurs lived in.Nursery CarWhen the family rides the Dinosaur Train, they learn that a new car has been added - a Nursery Car, with dozens of eggs in little, padded nests, attended by their expectant moms and dads. The kids watch the eggs hatch, and try to guess which hatchling goes with which dinosaur parent.Educational Objectives Aftershocks are small earthquakes that occur following a major earthquake. They happen when the Earth's crust adjusts to the effects of the main shock. Even giant dinosaurs hatched from relatively small eggs, but egg size is limited by restrictions on shell thickness. The shell must be thin enough to allow air to pass through tiny holes in the shell called "pores."

Tolerance: Mary Mackey and the East Side Gallery In August of 2009 a production team from PBS affiliate station, Colorado Public Television - CPT12 followed Colorado artist Mary Mackey as she returned to Berlin to repaint her mural "Tolerance" on the East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall. In 1990 a few months after the Berlin Wall came down Mary moved to Berlin. As the only United States citizen selected to paint on this 1.3 kilometer preserved section of the Berlin Wall, Mary chose the topic of cultural tolerance as her subject. In the Spring of 2009, the Berlin government invited Mary back to restore her mural as part of the 20th anniversary of that world changing event. The East Side Gallery, as the 118 murals by international artist became known, is the longest preserved section of the Cold War barrier.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Buddy, Tiny, and Petey act as detectives to figure out from clues where Judy's home is, and the Conductor makes sure she's brought safely home on the train.Educational ObjectivesJeholornis was a very primitive Mesozoic bird from the Early Cretaceous, found in what is now China. It was the size of a turkey, and scientists believe Jeholornis had pretty muscular wings but probably couldn't flap them, speculating that the bird was a very strong glider!The Forest FireWhen a forest fire comes to woods not far from the family nest at Pteranodon Terrace, the family takes the Dinosaur Train to visit a nearby area where a fire has already been, and the Conductor leads the kids on a Nature Tracker hike through the woods to see how new life is growing back - even after the forest fire's devastation.Educational ObjectivesForest fires play a role in helping to maintain a healthy ecosystem. Fires can help the ecosystem of forests by reducing overpopulation of trees - allowing existing trees to grow larger; and cause some seeds to sprout - the seeds of lodgepole pines, for example (found in Yellowstone) will only open after they are exposed to fire.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Buddy wants to follow, but the train tunnel doesn't go that way - so the Conductor decides to take the family in a brand-new invention, the Dinosaur Train Submarine! On their journey, they meet a marine reptile called Otto Opthalmosaurus, who guides the submarine deeper than it's ever been, and even helps them find their way out of a sea cave. Educational Objectives Opthalmosaurus was a large, sleek-bodied, dolphin-shaped underwater creature from the Jurassic Time Period. Its large eyes helped it hunt in deep, dark waters, and its particular streamlined shape made it a very fast swimmer. King Meets Crystal During a day at Troodon Town Music Festival, the Pteranodon family and King Cryolophosaurus hear a wonderful singer named Crystal Cryolophosaurus. King is very interested in becoming friends with Crystal, another dinosaur of his species, but he gets very nervous when trying to talk to her. Tiny and Buddy help King overcome his nervousness, and he and Crystal end up friends who happily sing together. Educational Objectives We further emphasize that creatures with crests used them to show off to, and attract, others in their species. Scientists think that male Cryolophosaurus used their crests to show off, much like male peacocks use their colorful feathers.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Curious George Up, Up and Away/Skunked Up, Up and Away: A tether, a basket, and a heap of hot air: George discovers that it takes all three for a balloon to score a successful lift-off. As Mrs. Renkins demonstrates how a hot-air balloon works, George and Bill bound into the basket and they soon find themselves accidentally airborne - alone! Will Mrs. Renkins and The Man with the Yellow Hat ever catch up with the flying duo? Not before George and Bill's windy flight path carries them on quite an adventure - and toward an array of feathered friends who land on their basket. And when one of the birds gets trapped in the balloon, it gives them the idea they need to help get them down to earth. EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: To show that wind/air can push things, that wind may have variable direction and speed, and that birds, and humans, use the power of the wind for movement. To demonstrate that hot-air balloons are wind-powered vehicles that may be controlled for altitude by changing the load weight (ballast), or heating/cooling the air inside the balloon. Skunked: There's a strange-looking cat eating George's peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But wait, it's not a cat, it's a skunk! And George is fascinated. After trying and failing to make friends with the creature several times - and being subjected to multiple baths of tomato juice after repeatedly getting "skunked" - George is relieved to get back to the city and away from all of those smelly encounters. What he doesn't realize is that he and The Man inadvertently brought along their new "friend" in a picnic basket - and that one little skunk is about to wreak a whole lot of havoc in a certain apartment building. EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: To understand that all animals have needs for food, water, shelter, and a compatible habitat, and that all animals have characteristics and behaviors that aid in their survival. To demonstrate some specific characteristics and behaviors of one type of animal including their unique defense mechanism.

Dinosaur Train The Earthquake/Nursery Car The EarthquakeMom takes the kids on a playdate with Tank Triceratops to the desert, where they meet a distant relative of Tank's, an early Ceratopsian named Penelope Protoceratops. The Conductor points out that Penelope lives in a part of the world that gets a lot of earthquakes, and sure enough, the kids experience their first quake with Penelope. Mom and the Conductor have prepared the kids with excellent advice about what to do in an earthquake, so everyone does fine.Educational ObjectivesProtoceratops belongs to one of the major groups of plant-eating dinosaurs, called ceratopsians, which also included Triceratops and Protoceratops. The surface of the earth is divided up into big chunks, called "plates," that move around, carrying the continents with them. So the world we see today is very different from the world the dinosaurs lived in.Nursery CarWhen the family rides the Dinosaur Train, they learn that a new car has been added - a Nursery Car, with dozens of eggs in little, padded nests, attended by their expectant moms and dads. The kids watch the eggs hatch, and try to guess which hatchling goes with which dinosaur parent.Educational Objectives Aftershocks are small earthquakes that occur following a major earthquake. They happen when the Earth's crust adjusts to the effects of the main shock. Even giant dinosaurs hatched from relatively small eggs, but egg size is limited by restrictions on shell thickness. The shell must be thin enough to allow air to pass through tiny holes in the shell called "pores."

Dinosaur Train The Lost Bird/The Forest Fire The Lost Bird Buddy and Tiny ride the Dinosaur Train for a playdate with their old friend Petey Peteinosaurus, and learn that the train has added a new Aviary Car, for their various flying passengers. Suddenly, they are joined by a lost bird named Judy Jehelornis, who was displaced by the recent forest fires, and can't remember where her home is. Buddy, Tiny, and Petey act as detectives to figure out from clues where Judy's home is, and the Conductor makes sure she's brought safely home on the train.Educational ObjectivesJeholornis was a very primitive Mesozoic bird from the Early Cretaceous, found in what is now China. It was the size of a turkey, and scientists believe Jeholornis had pretty muscular wings but probably couldn't flap them, speculating that the bird was a very strong glider!The Forest FireWhen a forest fire comes to woods not far from the family nest at Pteranodon Terrace, the family takes the Dinosaur Train to visit a nearby area where a fire has already been, and the Conductor leads the kids on a Nature Tracker hike through the woods to see how new life is growing back - even after the forest fire's devastation.Educational ObjectivesForest fires play a role in helping to maintain a healthy ecosystem. Fires can help the ecosystem of forests by reducing overpopulation of trees - allowing existing trees to grow larger; and cause some seeds to sprout - the seeds of lodgepole pines, for example (found in Yellowstone) will only open after they are exposed to fire.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Learning About Primary Immunodeficiency However, a pattern of frequent and recurring infections is not - such as pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, ear infections, meningitis or skin and blood infections. The reason for these frequent occurrences may be a condition known as, primary immunodeficiency. The result can be a compromised immune system which can be serious, lead to chronic illness, permanent organ damage, or even death. Because these frequent infections are longer lasting and often harder to treat than those that occur in a normally functioning immune system, it's critical to detect, diagnose and treat primary immunodeficiency before it becomes a serious problem. In this program we will study the science behind primary immunodeficiency. We'll also learn how doctors help patients deal with this disorder, and, how patients can live normal productive lives when PI is properly managed.

Chattahoochee Unplugged An Olympic-class whitewater run through the middle of a busy downtown. Sounds like a impossible dream but it's happening in Columbus, Georgia, and its Alabama neighbor, Phenix City.More than 20 years ago canoe enthusiast and outdoor store owner, Neal Wickham, dreamed of running rapids in his own backyard on the Chattahoochee River. But there was a problem - those rapids lay submerged beneath the waters held back by two aging rock and masonry dams. The dams were built more than a century ago after the Civil War. They powered Columbus's booming textile business. Eventually that business moved elsewhere leaving behind a blighted riverfront, empty mills and disused dams in danger of failing.But it takes more than a few sticks of dynamite to get rid of a dam. This documentary, filmed over the course of two years, explores how local businessman, John Turner and the civic organization, Uptown Columbus had to raise millions of dollars. They enlisted the services of Olympic whitewater designer, Rick McLaughlin, the US Army Corps of Engineers and many other experts. The best environmental science converged with state-of-the-art engineering and construction to realize a much grander dream: to return a critical 2.5 mile stretch of the Chattahoochee, one of the largest rivers in the Southeast, to its natural state. At the same time it's creating a thrill ride for kayakers and rafters who can enjoy the world's the longest urban whitewater run through the heart of downtown Columbus and neighboring Phenix City, Alabama.

POV The Act of Killing Nominated for an Academy Award®, "The Act of Killing" is as dreamlike and terrifying as anything that Werner Herzog (one of the executive producers) could imagine. The film explores a horrifying era in Indonesian history and provides a window into modern Indonesia, where corruption reigns. Not only is the 1965 murder of an estimated one million people honored as a patriotic act, but the killers remain in power. In a mind-bending twist, death-squad leaders dramatize their brutal deeds in the style of the American westerns, musicals and gangster movies they love — and play both themselves and their victims. As their heroic facade crumbles, they come to question what they've done. Winner, 2014 BAFTA Film Award, Best Documentary.

Dinosaur Train Dinosaur Train Submarine: Shoshana Shonosaurus/All Kinds of Families Dinosaur Train Submarine: Shoshana ShonosaurusThe Pteranodon family goes under the sea again, to ride the Dinosaur Train Submarine - this time they go to meet Shoshana Shonisaurus, an enormous marine reptile that's something between a dolphin and a whale. Since Shoshana loves to dive down very deep, Shiny has a problem with following her down to the bottom of the sea. Shoshana kindly helps Shiny get over her fear of diving deep.Educational Objective Shonisaurus was a giant, slow marine animal that, like the modern whale, was an air-breather.

Unlikely Heroes of the Arab Spring Presented by the award-winning author and property rights activist Hernando de Soto, this public television special presents for the first time the basic human and economic events that led to the Arab uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa. The program shows that "The Arab Spring" was less a political event than it was about the coming of the industrial revolution to a region where over 90% of the population lives and works outside the rule of law. DeSoto shows us that this informal economy is, however, the one common thread that can contribute to the region's growth and stability Amid provocative images of the Arab uprisings of 2010 and 2011, De Soto introduces the people and events that recently rocked the Arab world, sparked by the self-immolation of the poor, 26 year old street vendor: Tarek Bouazizi. It was not the $225 lost dollars from his fruit cart, expropriated by the police that transformed young Bouazizi into a martyr and a symbol of the revolution -- it was his similarity to the 180 million informal Arab entrepreneurs; many of them under 30 and computer literate. Over 100 of them followed Bouazizi in acts of self-immolation.

FRONTLINE The Madoff Affair In the mid-1960s, Bernard Madoff tapped money from Jewish businessmen at exclusive country clubs with the promise of steady guaranteed returns on their investments. He then set his sights on Europe and Latin America, brokering deals with powerful hedge fund managers and feeder funds from Buenos Aires to Geneva. Billions of dollars were channeled to Madoff's investment firm, and his feeders became fabulously wealthy. The competition wondered how the man could produce such steady returns in good times and bad. There were allegations that Madoff was "front-running" or operating a Ponzi scheme, which the SEC investigated several times over two decades. Madoff remained untouched until December 11, 2008, when he admitted it was all "one big lie." In this Emmy-winning documentary, FRONTLINE producers Martin Smith and Marcela Gaviria unravel the story behind the world's first truly global Ponzi scheme — a deception that lasted longer, reached wider and cut deeper than any other business scandal in history.

In the end, the kids love seeing the geysers and then joining the Moms in their hot springs, while accidentally surprising Mr. Conductor who is secretly trying to relax in his own private hot spring pool! Educational Objectives Much of the inside of the Earth is very hot and molten. When molten rock (magma) gets close to the Earth's surface, it can warm up water, producing such phenomena as "hot springs" and "geysers." Geysers occur when water is superheated by the magma and then violently forced to the surface along cracks in the rocks.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Rudy Maxa's World Istanbul, Turkey Everywhere in the Turkish capital is evidence of civilizations that tried to tame it. From the Romans to the Ottomans, this tumultuous city has seen it all, and its architecture, cuisine, and customs reflect that reality. Here, Christianity and Islam have their touchstones, and the cliché that "East meets West" at the Bosporus is a truism. Rudy tries to avoid buying a Turkish carpet-he admits he's powerless to visit Istanbul without returning home with a rug-but, as usual, he fails. Prowl some of the Grand Bazaar's 2,000 shops and spend some time with a professional shopper who teaches travelers the fine art of haggling. And can those Turkish carpets tell stories? Many do-stories of love and despair are woven in wool and color. Rudy gets steamed and scrubbed in a 16th century hammam, or public bath, and tours some of the world's great buildings-Topkapi Palace, the Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, and the downtown Spice Market. Be hypnotized by Whirling Dervishes, charmed by the Iznik art of ceramics, and learn how to buy a . . . carpet.

Roadtrip Nation  In an inspiring new season, ROADTRIP NATION follows the journey of three young adults as they travel the country in the series' green RV, interviewing fascinating leaders from all walks of life who built careers around their passions. In season 11, the Roadtrippers embark on a whirlwind tour through 25 states, exposing them to new ways of thinking, new experiences and mold-breaking careers they never knew existed. Ultimately, thanks to eye-opening conversations with everyone from poets to NASA engineers to fire-spinners and beyond, the soul-searching Roadtrippers gain the wisdom and conviction they need to take the next steps in their own lives. Each of the Roadtrippers hails from distinctly different backgrounds, yet they all share the common desire to figure out their paths and learn from those who have gone before them. Ed, a native of Britain, graduated with a history degree from Cambridge University in 2012, but has yet to connect his education to a meaningful career. Recently laid off from his temp job at a call center, he feels stagnant and faces mounting urgency to find exciting work. Tele'jon, a recent high school graduate, grew up in violence-plagued Oakland amidst a climate of crime, poverty and marginalization. Determined to rise above these conditions and overturn the dysfunction afflicting many urban areas, Tele'jon seeks to increase his commitment to community activism and youth advocacy in new ways. The stifling small-town upbringing of 29-year-old college student Olivia left her feeling insulated, and made it difficult for her to express herself as a gay woman. As a result, she left home and joined the Air Force, where she cultivated an inclination for travel and experiencing different cultures. Interested in sustainable farming and community-building, she hopes to find ways to combine her passions into a satisfying career.Throughout 20 powerful interviews, the Roadtrippers hear perspective-shifting advice from a wide range of leaders, including: human rights attorney Brittan Heller, spoken word poet and activist Staceyann Chin, educational policy professor David Stovall, whitewater rafting guide Sherry Grathler, and Adam Steltzner, a NASA engineer who directed the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars.

They even sing a song, `The Biggest Dinosaurs', before meeting Allie Alamosaurus, an enormous, long-necked, plant eating sauropod who is very friendly. Allie explains that her huge, strong legs hardly bend at all, but she can still have fun playing games with the kids, and teaching them some of her favorites! Educational Objectives The huge Alamosaurus had vertical, column-like legs that they could hardly bend. The strong legs were necessary to support the massive bulk of Alamosaurus (similar to all other sauropods). Preschoolers will be encouraged to compare and contrast the size and locomotion of dinosaurs with animals alive today.Sunrise, Sunset Dad takes the Pteranodon kids on an overnight camping trip where they watch both a sunrise and sunset, learning that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. The kids also find out more about nocturnal (night-active) animals, and diurnal (day-active) animals. Educational Objectives The Earth is a big ball spinning around the Sun (which also spins, though not as fast). At any given time, half our planet is hit by the sun's light; and the other half is covered in darkness. This episode also stresses that different kinds of animals are active during the day ("diurnal"), others are active at night ("nocturnal"), and others are most active during dawn and dusk ("crepuscular").

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Gaucher Disease: An inherited condition of the Body's Organs Gaucher disease is an inherited disorder that affects many of the body's organs and tissues. From infancy to adulthood, Gaucher can be diagnosed in most all age groups. Gaucher is the result of a buildup of certain fatty substances in certain organs, particularly the spleen and liver, causing these organs to become enlarged, affecting their normal function. Type 1 is the most common, and is called non-neuronopathic Gaucher disease because the brain and spinal cord are typically not affected. Types 2 and 3 are known as neuronopathic because they typically do affect the brain and spinal cord. Type 2 is usually life-threatening beginning in infancy. Type 3 also affects the nervous system, but usually progresses more slowly than type 2. One person out of 50,000 - 100,000 is affected by this Gaucher. However, Type 1 is present 1 in every 500 to 1000 people of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. In this program, we will meet leading medical researchers who work diligently to better understand and manage this condition, and we'll spend time with Gaucher patients and their families who live with this often debilitating disease.

FRONTLINE The Madoff Affair In the mid-1960s, Bernard Madoff tapped money from Jewish businessmen at exclusive country clubs with the promise of steady guaranteed returns on their investments. He then set his sights on Europe and Latin America, brokering deals with powerful hedge fund managers and feeder funds from Buenos Aires to Geneva. Billions of dollars were channeled to Madoff's investment firm, and his feeders became fabulously wealthy. The competition wondered how the man could produce such steady returns in good times and bad. There were allegations that Madoff was "front-running" or operating a Ponzi scheme, which the SEC investigated several times over two decades. Madoff remained untouched until December 11, 2008, when he admitted it was all "one big lie." In this Emmy-winning documentary, FRONTLINE producers Martin Smith and Marcela Gaviria unravel the story behind the world's first truly global Ponzi scheme — a deception that lasted longer, reached wider and cut deeper than any other business scandal in history.

NOVA 3D Spies of WWII During World War II, Hitler's scientists developed terrifying new weapons of mass destruction. Alarmed by rumors about advanced rockets and missiles, Allied intelligence recruited a team of brilliant minds from British universities and Hollywood studios to a country house near London. Here, they secretly pored over millions of air photos shot at great risk over German territory by specially converted, high-flying Spitfires. Peering at the photos through 3D stereoscopes, the team spotted telltale clues that revealed hidden Nazi rocket bases. The photos led to devastating Allied bombing raids that were crucial setbacks to the German rocket program and helped ensure the success of the D-Day landings. With 3D graphics that recreate exactly what the photo spies saw, NOVA tells the suspenseful, previously untold story of air photo intelligence that played a vital role in defeating Hitler.

Dinosaur Train Dome-Headed Dinosaur/Treasure Hunt Dome-Headed Dinosaur The Pteranodon kids and their dome-headed friend Spikey Stygimoloch meet a brother and sister, Patrick and Pamela Pachycephalosaurus, two dinosaurs with enormous dome heads. Spikey bonds with the Pachycephalosaurus. Patrick and Pamela are athletes who invite our kids, Mom, and Spikey along to watch them use their impressive dome heads to play a volleyball type sport called, Dome Ball. Educational Objectives Pachycephalosaurus used their thickened bony dome heads to butt against the sides of other pachycephalosaurs in order to figure out who was the biggest and strongest. Their thick, domed heads were also used for show - to help the species recognize others of its species and to compete for mates.Treasure Hunt Don has a large collection of things he's found in nature, but he's missing one hard-to-locate item - amber. On the Dinosaur Train, Don and the other Pteranodon kids find out that Gilbert is also looking for amber. At Amber Arroyo caves, Don and Gilbert separately search for and find amber, eventually bonding over their discoveries.Educational ObjectiveWhen most preschoolers think of the word "fossil," they think of ancient bones or footprints from the past. Many will be surprised to learn that a sticky substance that trees give off (resin), which functions to protect the plants from herbivores, fossilizes over millions of years and turns to amber. It often encases bits of organic material inside (insects or leaves), giving scientists an interesting window into the past.

Dinosaur Train Adventure Camp: Ziplining/Adventure Camp: Canyon Hiking ADVENTURE CAMP: ZIPLININGThe Nature Trackers Adventure Campers are back for another adventure and this time they'll be travelling to a rainforest! Once they arrive in the dense rainforest, the campers explore different levels of the ecosystem, including the forest floor and the canopy of leaves at the top of the forest. After a hike through the rainforest, the campers' fun adventure culminates as each kid takes a ride on a zip line, where they all get a bird's eye view of the entire rainforest!Educational Objective: Rainforests are very dense, warm, wet, forests that are home to a vast array of different life forms. Rainforests get a lot of rain, at least 70 inches per year. Rainforests, often called the "lungs of the Earth," generate much of the oxygen we breathe.ADVENTURE CAMP: CANYON HIKINGThe Nature Trackers Adventure Campers are led by Mr. Conductor and Gilbert on a hike down a canyon, where they can see the different layers of the Mesozoic Era! At first Lily Lambeosaurus is reluctant to go, thinking that a new adventure sounds hard, but Don convinces her that a new adventure can be worth the effort. At the bottom of the canyon, the kids dig for fossils. Each Nature Tracker goes home with a "new" Ammonite fossil, and Lily is so glad she tried something new!Educational Objective: Canyons are deep cuts in the earth's surface. They are formed by erosion. Erosion is mainly caused by the flow of rivers. It takes millions of years for canyons to become the grandiose natural landmarks they are today. The bottom rocks in canyons can date back billions of years, beyond the Mesozoic. Canyons can also be formed by a shift of the earth's tectonic plates.

From championing the protection of ancient varieties, to cooking and grinding it into masa for tortillas, Amado just might be the corn guru of Oaxaca. All manner of enticing snacks served at Itanoni, his Oaxaca restaurant, including memelas, tetelas, tostadas, and tacos, use carefully selected types of maiz criollo (native corn). Abigail Mendoza, a superb village cook from Teotitlan del Valle, transforms her handmade fresh blue and white masa into simple, yet amazing village-style tamales cooked in a traditional olla over a wood fire. Rick riffs on her yellow mole to make his own fresh empanadas on his kitchen griddle. With the skyline of Oaxaca as the back drop, chef and restaurateur Pilar Cabrera shows Rick her beautiful squash blossom tamales.

Few know about the existence of the National AIDS Memorial, a seven-acre grove hidden in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. This documentary chronicles the garden's transformation from a neglected eyesore to a landscaped sanctuary to a national memorial. The film shows how a community in crisis found healing and remembrance, and how the seeds of a few visionary environmentalists blossomed into something larger than they could have imagined. However, controversy erupted over an international design competition, opening up questions of what it means to be a national memorial — and how to mark a time of unimaginable loss.Discover the National AIDS Memorial, a seven-acre grove hidden in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

Dinosaur Train Classic in the Jurassic: Air Obstacle Race/King and Crystal Live! CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC: AIR OBSTACLE RACEAt the 'Classic in the Jurassic,' it's a race between pterosaurs who have to fly between hanging vines, swoop through a canyon, push through a wind tunnel, slalom over and under branches, then carry food from a pond as they race to the finish line! Teddy Pterodaustro finishes first and shows everyone how he filters plankton through his teeth to prove that he did indeed get food from the pond! Teddy is declared the winner!Educational Objective: The Pterodaustro was a prehistoric pterosaur that lived in the early Cretaceous Period. Its wing span stretched 8 or 9 feet. Pterodaustro used the bristle-like teeth of its lower jaws to strain crustaceans, plankton and algae from the water.KING & CRYSTAL LIVE!Buddy, Tiny and Mom are riding the Dinosaur Train where Crystal Cryolophosaurus is on her way to visit King Cryolophosaurus and invites our family along. King and Crystal's heartfelt reunion is marred when Crystal tries to convince a reluctant King to take his fantastic new song 'Top Carnivore' out on the road to share with his Mesozoic fans. But King doesn't like leaving home and Tiny has a great idea-King and Crystal can perform a live concert in Gondwana! The concert is a huge success, and Crystal decides to stay there with King instead of going back out on the road.Educational Objective: Cryolophosaurus lived in the Jurassic Time Period, in Antarctica, which was part of a southern supercontinent called "Gondwana." Jurassic Antarctica was relatively warm and lush (unlike Antarctica of today). At that time in the Jurassic Antarctica, Cryolophosaurus truly was the King - that is, the top carnivore.

Dinosaur Train Classic in the Jurassic: Ultimate Face-Off/Back in Time CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC: ULTIMATE FACE-OFFThe `Classic in the Jurassic' games are back, and this time, it's the Ultimate Smackdown. Mr. Conductor explains the "wrestling" matchups from the three Time Periods feature carnivores vs. herbivores and the best choreographed and most entertaining show wins! Tank and Buddy are thrilled - what a face-off! Once the judges tally the results, Team Cretaceous is declared the winner, and the fans love it! Educational Objective: All ecosystems on land include predators and plant-eaters. The same was true during the Mesozoic age of dinosaurs - wherever you find herbivores, you find carnivores. So throughout the Mesozoic Era, the ecosystem provided classic matchups of top carnivores vs. herbivores. BACK IN TIMEBuddy and Tiny start wondering aloud whether the Triassic was the beginning of time, and if there was anything before the Age of Dinosaurs. So Mr. Conductor walks through a Pedestrian Time Tunnel to get to the Permian Time Period, where they meet Deon Dimetrodon, who has never met a dinosaur or pterosaur before. Buddy and Tiny are amazed to learn that there are neither in the Permian! Deon is delighted to experience the Mesozioc Era. He walks through the Pedestrian Time Tunnel with our group, and is blown away by the vegetation and the variety and size of dinosaurs. Another lifelong friendship is forged!Educational Objective: Many animals we think are dinosaurs are not actually dinosaurs. They are mammals like us. Dimetrodon was a dominant carnivore in the Permian period, living mainly in swampy areas. Although very reptilian-like, Dimetrodon belonged to a group called "synapsids" - more closely related to mammals.

Head On  SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

Healing ADD with Daniel Amen, MD & Tana Amen, RN ADD, or ADHD, is a national health crisis that continues to grow - yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Kids and adults are put on powerful stimulant medications in short office visits without any biological information, and the stories of these medications hurting children and adults are common and persistent. In this national public television program, psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife, nurse Tana Amen, take a completely new look at ADD and explain 7 unique types based on the extensive brain imaging work on tens of thousands of ADD patients. Treating all people with ADD the same invites failure and frustration and can be a disaster, as the traditional treatments that make two of the types better can make the other 5 types worse.
