Handel's Messiah: A United States Naval Academy Tradition Handel's Messiah is a United States Naval Academy Tradition since 1946. 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. The young patriots singing this wonderful music come from every state across the country to attend the Naval Academy, not only to receive their undergraduate degree, but more importantly, to accept a Commission to serve our great nation as Officers in the United States Navy or United States Marine Corps.

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.

While attempting to win the leaf-necklace contest, Keenan Chirostemotes claims the Pteranodon sibs can't compete for the prize for "dinosaur" with the most leaves because they are not dinosaurs. This launches the kids into a song called "That's Not a Dinosaur", as all the non-dinosaurs sing their piece. In the end, the game rules are changed to include all creatures, even non-dinosaurs, in all the contests!Educational ObjectiveToo often, kids and adults focus only on the big, obvious inhabitants of any ecosystem. The goal of this episode is to concentrate on the diverse categories of animals-reptiles, amphibians, mammals, fish, insects, arachnids (spiders), etc. that lived in the Mesozoic alongside the huge dinosaurs.Tiny's GardenThe Nature Trackers go on a visit to the Big Pond, where Tiny hopes to see her favorite flowers. The Conductor tells her that if the kids gather seeds at the pond, they can bring them home and plant a garden full of those same flowers at the family nest! The kids all get into it, gathering seeds and bringing them home, where they plant a garden, and meet its new inhabitants, including Sammy, a friendly slug, who explains that slugs, spiders, and butterflies all help to make a garden complete. Educational ObjectivesLife loves diversity! Successful ecosystems are diverse, with lots of different plants, animals, fungi, and bacteria. All the diverse parts act like a web, supporting each other. We show "diversity" in the garden - and show how insects are attracted to flowers, and how flowers provides food for various herbivores, etc.

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

Alternating between raucous melodies and slow-burning odes to the devil in his many forms, Ben Ringel (vocals/dobro), Dylan Fitch (guitar), David Supica (bass), and Ben Azzi (drums) explore themes of difficult love, the wanderer's high road, and the moral low road using their unconscious fascination with the classical elements - earth, air, fire, and water - as a natural vehicle for their briny narratives

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

Fitz & The Tantrums played its signature dance grooves -- blending classic soul and '80s pop on such songs as the band's new single, "The Walker" -- and, as always, refused to let the invited audience of 900 even think about sitting down.

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

The two set off on a night journey to find the possum's home and meet some other nocturnal animals (and some very tired "day animals"!) on the way.
