2/12/08 Long after a cease fire in the Iraeli-Lebanese conflict, thousands of unexploded bombs, cluster munitions, still cover the battlefields and are wounding many unintended victims, civilians. Also, FEMA promises go unmet to the residents of the Gulf Coast still living in trailer homes. And a leading economist comments on the state of America's fiscal health.
4/8/08 Scientists are teaming up with Buddhist monks and the Dalai Lama to study a new science called neuroplasticity -- the brain’s never-ending ability to change and adapt. The main area of research focuses on whether the rigorous mental training undergone by the monks actually transforms their brains physically. If it does it may open doors to new types of memory improvement and physical recovery. Dan Rather Reports takes a closer look at how neuroplasticity can change lives.
7/1/08 What would you do if you were living in a war-torn country without any rule of law and your child was kidnapped? For most parents, the answer of course would be anything -- including paying ransom to those who were holding their child even if the kidnappers were terrorists. For many Iraqis that choice has been a grim reality – a reality that only gets worse if they hope to one day find asylum in the U.S. -- because having paid ransom to the kidnappers they are seen as abetting terrorism and barred from entering the country. Also, is the Justice Department's Civil Rights division no longer enforcing anti-discrimination laws? That's the allegation of some former career attorneys with the agency who also say they were moved out because they didn't follow the Bush administration's conservative mantra. And, the debate over injecting racehorses with steroids and painkillers.
9/30/08 Millions of Americans suddenly find themselves saddled with homes that are worth less than what they owe. We head to Georgia where we meet a politician who thought he had a way to prevent the mortgage mess in his state -- until he ran head on into the powerful interests of Wall Street, which were making billions off the backs of those who could least afford it. Also, Nate Silver has long been known to fantasy baseball stat-heads as the man behind one of the most innovative fantasy baseball team tools on the market, but now he’s moved into the political minefield of predicting the highs and lows of the 2008 presidential primaries and election. And, immigrants are arriving in America in increasing numbers, but they’re not settling in big cities like Los Angeles or New York where you would expect. They’re taking up residence in rural American towns like Lexington, Nebraska where job opportunities in meatpacking plants and farming are widely available.
12/16/08 Wall Street is now attracting a huge percentage of graduates from the nation's elite colleges and universities, and some are questioning if this is the best use of this countries brightest young minds. Also, Israel and its amazing contributions to the high tech world. And after another devastating hurricane, questions about whether to rebuild Galveston, Texas.
2/17/09 Rising unemployment, weak home prices and an increasing foreclosure crisis, are threatening families, cities and the entire U.S. economy. We speak to Harvard law professor, and bankruptcy specialist, Elizabeth Warren, who has studied the economy and foreclosures and their dramatic, long term effect on the middle class of the United States. Also, what happens to all those houses that are repossessed by the banks? They are often auctioned off to the highest bidder. A huge home auction in Fort Myers, Florida takes place over three days while just a few miles away families line up at a food kitchen. Learn how the great recession has created a surprising and burgeoning problem in the wealthiest nation on earth – hunger.
5/5/09 We investigate allegations that the helmet pads used by the Army and Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan are endangering American soldiers' lives -- all because the better helmets are being sold by Dr. Bob Meaders, a gadfly whom the military brass doesn’t like. We talk to Meaders, the soldiers who've worn both pads, and to the manufacturers of the pads currently in use. Also, thousands of young marines trained at Camp Lejeune for the day when they would serve and perhaps sacrifice for their country. But what they didn't know was that many of them may also have been sacrificing their health by drinking what turned out to be some of the most highly contaminated water this country has ever seen. And what's most shocking is that Camp Lejeune officials allegedly knew their water was contaminated, yet it took them years to close the wells.
And we document the amazing journey of a group of 5th graders from the Bronx to Germany and Austria where they tackle the history of the Holocaust.
8/11/09 From back lots to roof tops urban farming is exploding. Our round table discussion from a floating barge and hydroponic farm on the Hudson River sheds light on a unique plan for turning farming on its end, literally: it’s called vertical farming. But there's more to the story. Chickens on rooftops? We visit one urban family doing just that. And a look at a food pantry planting a seed to go beyond canned food - turning an abandoned lot into a farm plot.
