Head On National results KRISTA: 2014 was good year for Republicans. They gained 7 seats in the US Senate and 12 seats in the House. Republicans now hold 31 governorships and majorities in 67 state legislative chambers. The voters said no to President Obama, Obamacare, and liberalism and said yes to pro-freedom Republican ideas. SUSAN: It was a good year for the Grand Old Party - Republican moderates and a terrible year for the wing nuts - Sarah Palin, and her posse. Voters said ' a pox on all your houses to all but a few incumbents in an emphatic 'no' to the status quo. KRISTA: Voters elected moderate republicans like McConnell and Roberts and principled conservatives like Tom Cotton, Ben Sasse, Joni Ernst, Tim Scott, and Cory Gardner who want to balance the budget, repeal and replace Obamcare, end corporate cronyism, and limit government overreach. Ted Cruz will have plenty of reformers at his side. SUSAN: McConnell has the potential for bi-partisan compromise. As for - an oxymoron - 'principled conservatives,' time will tell. John Boehner will continue to have his hands full managing the wing-nuts and I'd love to sit ringside at the kill-or-die match between McConnell and the Cruz (as in Ted) missile.

Colorado Inside Out Time Machine: 1951 The latest trip in the time machine takes host Raj Chohan and panel guests back to the year 1951; Harry S. Truman was President, a first-class stamp cost three cents, unemployment was 3.3 percent and Bobby Thompson of the New York Giants hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to win the National League pennant in the so called, "shot heard ‘round the world."

1951 was also the time of the Korean War, duck and cover drills and big time construction and expansion in the city of Denver. CPT12 goes back in time to understand exactly what was happening in Colorado. With each Time Machine episode, the CIO panel takes on identities from the chosen time period to foray into the past. The 1951 panel is as follows:
  • Raj Chohan - host, as famed radio personality Perry Allen
  • Patricia Calhoun - Ethel Merman, star of stage and screen and 1951 resident of Denver
  • David Kopel - Cecil Koplowitz, City Editor of the Walsenburg World Independent
  • Kevin Flynn - Al Nakkula, reporter with the Rocky Mountain News
  • Dani Newsum - Lois Waddell, a Sociology Professor at the University of Denver
Co-Producer and Sound Designer Larry Patchett went the extra mile to make this trip into the past authentic, using actual time period microphones and using a newsroom setting for the production.

Colorado Inside Out Time Machine Special: Circa 1912 COLORADO INSIDE OUT takes its annual trip in the Time machine, this time going back to 1912. The panel takes a look at the issues of the day, beginning with a look back at the ramifications of the sinking of the Titanic and how unrest in some European countries may effect peace in the world. The conversation strikes a local tone when the panel discusses how tumultuous the Denver City Government is in 1912. A new reform movement has pushed Mayor Robert Speer aside, but the move does not necessarily go well for Denver, or the movement. With a Presidential election coming up in the fall of 1912, the panel also gives their takes on the race between President William Taft, Bull Moose Party Candidate Teddy Roosevelt and Governor Woodrow Wilson. Mrs. Margaret Brown, known to many after her story was portrayed by Hollywood as Molly Brown, is played by Patricia Calhoun. The panel also includes Hobart Drizzlewhit, played by David Kopel, Gertie West, portrayed by Dani Newsum, Police Commissioner George Creel, portrayed by Kevin Flynn and Ernest Bollier, played by Raj Chohan. Complete with effects and music from 1912, this trip into the time machine is sure to be a memorable one.

Colorado Inside Out Time Machine Special: Circa 1973 In this special presentation, the CIO panel takes its annual trip in the time machine! This time, the program goes 1973.

Host Dominic Dezzutti is joined by Patricia Calhoun, David Kopel Dani Newsum and Kevin Flynn. Co-producer and head researcher Larry Patchett went to great lengths to be sure the CIO panel covered as many of the major issues from 1973 as possible. And, as we have found in past explorations in the time machine, many of the issues from 40 years ago still resonate today. 
Nov 28
8:30 PM

Moyers & Company The Long, Dark Shadows of Plutocracy Inequality is a deep and divisive reality. Across our country, millions of people of ordinary means can't afford decent housing. The middle class is being squeezed out as the wealthy drive up real estate values and the working poor are shoved farther into squalor. In "Dark Shadows," a special Moyers & Company essay, Bill Moyers tells how a portion of the famous skyline of Manhattan, towering above the south end of Central Park, is becoming a symbol of how wealth and power get their way without regard for the impact on the lives and neighborhoods of everyday people. Exclusive skyscrapers, climbing higher than ever before, are blocking the light, throwing enormous swathes of the park into darkness. What's more, the apartments are being sold at sky high prices in the multimillions to the international superrich, many of whom will only live in them part-time - if at all -- and often pay little or no city income or property taxes, thanks to the political clout of real estate developers. "The real estate industry here in New York City is like the oil industry in Texas," affordable housing advocate Jaron Benjamin says, "They outspend everybody... They often have a much better relationship with elected officials than everyday New Yorkers do." Meanwhile, fewer and fewer middle and working class people can afford to live in New York City. "The internationalization of New York once meant something actually kind of exotic and exciting and enhanced our diversity," Vanity Fair architecture critic Paul Goldberger notes. "Today, internationalization... seems to symbolize not diversity but a kind of exclusivity." And Jaron Benjamin declares, "Forget about the Statue of Liberty. Forget about Ellis Island. Forget about the idea of everybody being welcome here in New York City. This will be a city only for rich people."

These experts include Jeffrey Smith, Vandana Shiva, Ronnie Cummins, Shiv Chopra, Michael Antoniou, Rima Laibow, Bruce Lipton, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Arpad Pusztai, organic farmers, and others. The film argues that GMOs will devastate the planet and create catastrophic health and food crises for the world population.

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.

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.

Head On National results KRISTA: 2014 was good year for Republicans. They gained 7 seats in the US Senate and 12 seats in the House. Republicans now hold 31 governorships and majorities in 67 state legislative chambers. The voters said no to President Obama, Obamacare, and liberalism and said yes to pro-freedom Republican ideas. SUSAN: It was a good year for the Grand Old Party - Republican moderates and a terrible year for the wing nuts - Sarah Palin, and her posse. Voters said ' a pox on all your houses to all but a few incumbents in an emphatic 'no' to the status quo. KRISTA: Voters elected moderate republicans like McConnell and Roberts and principled conservatives like Tom Cotton, Ben Sasse, Joni Ernst, Tim Scott, and Cory Gardner who want to balance the budget, repeal and replace Obamcare, end corporate cronyism, and limit government overreach. Ted Cruz will have plenty of reformers at his side. SUSAN: McConnell has the potential for bi-partisan compromise. As for - an oxymoron - 'principled conservatives,' time will tell. John Boehner will continue to have his hands full managing the wing-nuts and I'd love to sit ringside at the kill-or-die match between McConnell and the Cruz (as in Ted) missile.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Head On National results KRISTA: 2014 was good year for Republicans. They gained 7 seats in the US Senate and 12 seats in the House. Republicans now hold 31 governorships and majorities in 67 state legislative chambers. The voters said no to President Obama, Obamacare, and liberalism and said yes to pro-freedom Republican ideas. SUSAN: It was a good year for the Grand Old Party - Republican moderates and a terrible year for the wing nuts - Sarah Palin, and her posse. Voters said ' a pox on all your houses to all but a few incumbents in an emphatic 'no' to the status quo. KRISTA: Voters elected moderate republicans like McConnell and Roberts and principled conservatives like Tom Cotton, Ben Sasse, Joni Ernst, Tim Scott, and Cory Gardner who want to balance the budget, repeal and replace Obamcare, end corporate cronyism, and limit government overreach. Ted Cruz will have plenty of reformers at his side. SUSAN: McConnell has the potential for bi-partisan compromise. As for - an oxymoron - 'principled conservatives,' time will tell. John Boehner will continue to have his hands full managing the wing-nuts and I'd love to sit ringside at the kill-or-die match between McConnell and the Cruz (as in Ted) missile.

Great Railway Journeys of Europe Historian and archetypal Englishman Julian Davidson travels from the frozen wastes of Norway to the sunny shores of the Italian Adriatic coast, sampling the delights of some of the most dramatic and fascinating railway journeys in Europe. In Norway he explores the capital Oslo before boarding the superfast intercity express train towards Bergen. This takes him high into the ice fields, crossing the highest point of any European railway. He takes a detour onto on one of the most spectacular pieces of track anywhere in the world called the Flamsbana, and then continues on to Bergen where he visits the home of composer Edvard Grieg. Vienna is Julian's next port of call where he tours the world famous Ringstrasse and Shonbrunne Palace, discovering the facts behind the staggering wealth and achievements of Emperor Franz Joseph's Austro-Hungarian Empire. Hopping onto one of Austria's advanced Railjet passenger trains, he is whisked high into the Alps and the breath-taking mountain line known as the Semmering pass. After a brief stop, he continues on to the end of the line in the beautiful Italian coastal town of Trieste. Glasgow is the second city of Scotland and the start of Julian's journey north into the Western Highlands and four hundred years back in time to learn of feuding kings and fractious clans. He visits the ancient town of Fort William where he climbs aboard "The Jacobite," a lovely old steam train which takes him on a line recognizable for being the "Hogwarts Express" in the Harry Potter film series. He ends in the port of Malaig, hopping off point for the Western Isles.

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.

Mexico - One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless Oaxaca's Live-Fire Cooking Everything tastes better cooked over a wood or charcoal fire - at least that's the Oaxacan credo. From soup to barbacoa, burning embers influence the flavor of Oaxaca's food in just the right ways. For starters, Rick guides us through the "taco corridor" at the 20 de Noviembre market just off the main square in Oaxaca. We can almost taste the richly-burnished chiles and onions as they grill alongside super-thinly sliced beef and pork and robust chorizo sausages. Then we see hot rocks plucked from the glowing embers and dropped into hot soup for making caldo de piedra (stone soup), a specialty from the village of San Felipe Usila. La Capilla, a campestre (open air) restaurant, in the town of Zaachilla, has served lamb and goat barbacoa for more than 47 years. Rick's so enamored with the process of burying the chile-seasoned meat in glowing embers that he creates his own version on the backyard grill. Served with Oaxacan pasilla tomatillo salsa, there's meat, fire and smoke in every bite.

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.

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.

Head On National results KRISTA: 2014 was good year for Republicans. They gained 7 seats in the US Senate and 12 seats in the House. Republicans now hold 31 governorships and majorities in 67 state legislative chambers. The voters said no to President Obama, Obamacare, and liberalism and said yes to pro-freedom Republican ideas. SUSAN: It was a good year for the Grand Old Party - Republican moderates and a terrible year for the wing nuts - Sarah Palin, and her posse. Voters said ' a pox on all your houses to all but a few incumbents in an emphatic 'no' to the status quo. KRISTA: Voters elected moderate republicans like McConnell and Roberts and principled conservatives like Tom Cotton, Ben Sasse, Joni Ernst, Tim Scott, and Cory Gardner who want to balance the budget, repeal and replace Obamcare, end corporate cronyism, and limit government overreach. Ted Cruz will have plenty of reformers at his side. SUSAN: McConnell has the potential for bi-partisan compromise. As for - an oxymoron - 'principled conservatives,' time will tell. John Boehner will continue to have his hands full managing the wing-nuts and I'd love to sit ringside at the kill-or-die match between McConnell and the Cruz (as in Ted) missile.

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.

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.

Dinosaur Train Adventure Camp: Rafting/Adventure Camp: Mountain Climbing ADVENTURE CAMP: RAFTINGBuddy, Tiny, Shiny and Don go river rafting for the first time at Nature Adventure's Tracking Camp. Their old pal Jess Hesperornis meets up with them and they all learn about erosion and the importance of rivers, before finishing up their adventure by cruising through some rapids!Educational Objective: Rivers and streams are ribbons of water that start at some high point and flow downhill-often with streams gathering into rivers. Animals and plants living on land depend on rivers and streams for providing fresh water and nutrients.ADVENTURE CAMP: MOUNTAIN CLIMBINGFor their second outing at Nature Trackers Adventure Camp, Buddy, Tiny, Shiny, Don and other friends learn about the tree line as they set out to hike up a mountain. Shiny is determined to get to the top of mountain forest. Buddy wonders if they'll be able to see anything from the mountaintop, through the tall trees. The kids are amazed that the higher they hike, the shorter trees and bushes get! Then they reach the tree line -- a certain point on the mountain, where trees are really small because they don't have enough air to breathe and the temperature is too cold. In the end, Shiny and all the kids use teamwork to all reach the mountaintop together!Educational Objective: The timberline, or tree line, is a certain elevation on a mountain where the temperatures are colder, the air is thin, and the soil is less moist making it hard for most plants and trees to grow. Trees may grow as small shrubs. The amount of oxygen is less so it's harder for animals to breath at the tree line and above.

Head On National results KRISTA: 2014 was good year for Republicans. They gained 7 seats in the US Senate and 12 seats in the House. Republicans now hold 31 governorships and majorities in 67 state legislative chambers. The voters said no to President Obama, Obamacare, and liberalism and said yes to pro-freedom Republican ideas. SUSAN: It was a good year for the Grand Old Party - Republican moderates and a terrible year for the wing nuts - Sarah Palin, and her posse. Voters said ' a pox on all your houses to all but a few incumbents in an emphatic 'no' to the status quo. KRISTA: Voters elected moderate republicans like McConnell and Roberts and principled conservatives like Tom Cotton, Ben Sasse, Joni Ernst, Tim Scott, and Cory Gardner who want to balance the budget, repeal and replace Obamcare, end corporate cronyism, and limit government overreach. Ted Cruz will have plenty of reformers at his side. SUSAN: McConnell has the potential for bi-partisan compromise. As for - an oxymoron - 'principled conservatives,' time will tell. John Boehner will continue to have his hands full managing the wing-nuts and I'd love to sit ringside at the kill-or-die match between McConnell and the Cruz (as in Ted) missile.

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.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate that materials, both natural and human-made, have specific characteristics that determine how they will be used. For example, the skins of fruit function to protect them.

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.

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.

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.

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
