  • For Profit Colleges

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 16 - 6/4/13

    (6/4/2013) An in depth investigation into the business of for-profit colleges. Schools like ITT Technical Institute, DeVry University and University of Phoenix differ from schools such as Penn State or USC because they actually treat education as a business - teaching students while still turning a profit. And, while most people may be aware that these colleges are for-profit, what they probably don’t know is that most of these profits come from the federal government in the form of federal student loans and Pell Grants -- money that the Government gives to low income students. But what happens if the student drops out -- which 50% of students at for-profit colleges do? The school keeps the money and the student is often saddled with a high interest loan of many tens of thousands of dollars.moreless
  • The San Miguel Gate

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 15 - 5/21/12

    (5/21/2013) Snapshots from the front lines of illegal immigration. For all the stories of those caught in the cycle of immigration and deportation, there are just as many families who have illegally migrated here - and not only evaded capture, but made America their home. It could be your neighbor...or the family down street -- and you would never know. But because they are undocumented they eke out a living, knowing they could be deported at any moment – and many suffer very high rates of abuse while working without papers. Most immigrants enter the US from along the more than 1900 mile U.S./Mexico border, but many specifically come in at the San Miguel Gate in the Arizona desert, where border patrol agents say border security is a myth.moreless
  • Operation Streamline

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 14 - 5/14/12

    (5/14/2013) A special investigation into a part of the immigration debate that is not getting nearly the attention it deserves. Congress is now considering a grand compromise involving beefing up border security and granting a pathway to citizenship for some of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants already in this country. But hidden in the small print is an expansion of a federal program already in place that has raised serious questions. It’s called Operation Streamline. Supporters herald it as a game changer - a necessary tough stand against those pouring into this country illegally, but others say that prosecuting and imprisoning those who cross into our country illegally is not the answer.moreless
  • Kim vs. Kabul

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 13 - 5/7/12

    (5/7/2013) As the United States prepares for the return or “draw down” of military forces in Afghanistan, there are some people who are choosing to stay, regardless of the danger, in order to help build law out of the chaos. One of those people is the remarkable Kim Motley. She is the only Westerner working in Kabul as a private lawyer, but to Motley, it is more of a calling than a career choice. She calls herself an “international advocate” fighting for the rights of Afghan women. Also, pulling up the stakes -- our troops are coming home from Afghanistan, but what about all their gear? That's a billion dollar question -- a $6 billion question, in fact. And, we take a look at what happens to Afghanistan once our troops leave. Some say that civil war is not far behind.moreless

  • The Poor Women of Texas

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 11 - 4/9/12

    (4/9/2013) The abortion battle moves to the states. In Texas, new state restrictions on abortions have had consequences for the health care of thousands of low income women, as many clinics that provided services beyond pregnancy termination have been forced to close. Also, Colombia’s civil war over the last 50 years has left an estimated 600,000 dead and millions displaced. The U.S. has invested billions of dollars in trying to end the war and combat the drug trade. For years everything seemed hopeless, but Colombia now has a different approach to ending the conflict -- one that relies as much on open arms as heavy arms. And it just might be a model for other countries mired in internal conflict.moreless
  • Buzzkill

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 10 - 4/2/12

    (4/2/2013) We’ve reported extensively about the mysterious disappearance of honeybees. Scientists have been unable to pinpoint the exact cause, but the little insect that’s responsible for pollinating one third of everything we eat is dying….quickly. And some of the biggest commercial beekeepers are now saying the unthinkable – that their industry may be on the brink of extinction…with some unable to rebuild after 50 to 90 percent losses this year. Also, an important investigation from the slums of Karachi. The dangerous downside of one of our greatest intelligence coups -- finding Osama bin Laden -- is creating major roadblocks for eradicating polio from Pakistan.moreless

  • Teaching to the Test

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 7 - 2/12/12

    (2/12/2013) In Seattle, Garfield High School, voted one of the best public schools for academics by U.S. News and World Report, has suddenly become the center of a war on standardized testing by refusing to administer the MAP test. This test is given to millions of students in schools across the country and has become one of the most popular standardized tests for measuring academic achievement. But now the faculty, parents and students of Garfield High have banded together, saying that MAP test is doing more harm than good. Also, we visit Hillsborough County, Florida where a new and unique way of evaluating teachers has become one of the most talked about experiments in U.S. education. And, a look at one feat of civil engineering that might help save Manhattan from the superstorms to come.moreless

  • The Cutting Edge

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 5 - 2/5/12

    (2/5/2013) Imagine what it would be like if we could create a microorganism that would clean up pollution, or a new kind of algae that produces jet fuel. What if we could program cells to fight disease? Synthetic biologists are predicting all of this and more... and some of it is already possible. Synthetic biology is a new field of study that some scientists believe will prove just as important to our society as the technological revolution that brought us personal computers and the Internet. It hinges on one vital element… our accelerating ability to manipulate DNA.moreless
  • Grounded

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 4 - 1/29/12

    (1/29/2013) Originally hailed as the most technologically advanced commercial airplane, Boeing's 787 Dreamliner is proving to be a nightmare. Production problems caused a three-year delivery delay and since the roll out in 2011 there have been a series of issues including mis-installed fuel couplings, a series of electrical problems and most recently smoking batteries that caused a emergency landing. Earlier this month the FAA ordered a full investigation of the electrical system and grounded the six Dreamliners operating in the US. We take a look at what went wrong with the Dreamliner. Also, the unseen cost of war -- a follow up on our investigation into burn pits and their health effects on our soldiers. And, Dan Rather reflects on the second inauguration of President Obama.moreless
  • Sex Workers

    Full Episode

    S 8 : Ep 3 - 1/22/12

    (1/22/2013) An investigation into how two European countries, Holland and Sweden, are using drastically different methods to deal with the world’s oldest profession. Prostitution has never been illegal in the Netherlands provided it was voluntary, but in 2000 sex work became regulated. The government set rules about where and how sex work was done – treating it just like any other profession. The idea was that prostitution was an everyday reality, so why not bring it out in the open to help protect women and prevent human trafficking. About the same time the Dutch decided to legalize prostitution, Sweden took a very different and novel approach. Their goal was to eliminate prostitution for good by targeting the buyer -- target the men and you eliminate demand. Eliminate demand and you eliminate prostitution. We take a look at how well each method is working.moreless

    S 8 : Ep 1 - 1/8/12

    (1/8/2013) Congress is about to tackle a ban on assault weapons, but in Nevada, especially Las Vegas, there is an enormous interest in assault rifles. Over the last year, seven new ranges have opened up in Las Vegas and they offer hundreds of guns you can rent and shoot on-sight. And if you want to buy a semi-automatic weapon, good luck. Most stores are already sold out. It's a growing phenomenon across the country but it’s becoming a major Las Vegas tourist attraction. Also, an American who helps desperately poor Kenyan teens reach America's Ivy League schools.moreless

  • Pulling Rank

    Full Episode

    S 7 : Ep 31 - 11/13/12

    (11/13/2012) We sit down with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, on the future of the U.S. military and the concerns of veterans. Also, on December 7, 1941, Glenn Lane was a 23 year-old radio man assigned to the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Many of his shipmates died on that “date that will live in infamy,” but Lane made it out alive, passing away recently at the age of 93. A military provision allows for those who survived the attack on the Arizona to have their ashes interred on the ship so they may join their fallen comrades. We were a given a special invitation by Lane’s family to document this rare military burial at the sunken battleship. And, a look at our newest veterans from Iraq and Afghanistanmoreless
  • Gaddafi's Last Day

    Full Episode

    S 7 : Ep 29 - 10/23/12

    (10/23/2012) We report from Libya, a country that is back in the headlines but from which there has been precious little reporting on the ground. The death of U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans has become a key point in the presidential election. But what about the country itself? The reality is, as with most matters of foreign affairs, there are no easy answers. We were given extraordinary access to what has happened in Libya in the past twelve months. It was a year ago, October 2011, when Moammar Gadaffi was executed by his countrymen. But it wouldn’t have happened without help from the U.S. Of all the countries that have seen so-called “Arab Spring” uprisings, Libya is the only one where the west openly intervened. There was great hope that Libya would quickly become a symbol of a new order in the Arab world, but a year later all the complexity and contradictions of the country can be found in the charred ruins of the American consulate in Benghazi.moreless

In just a few months, construction will begin on the U.S.’s first true high-speed rail line. Join us for a real fast ride.moreless
