Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.
Next, we conclude this week’s feature series, “An ‘Occupational Hazard’: Rape in the Military” with Congresswoman Jackie Speier who discusses military sexual violence and her bill to help prevent it, the STOP Act, the Sexual Assault Training Oversight and Prevention Act.
Then, on August 5, after traveling 254 days and 354 million miles, NASA’s Mars Science Lab spacecraft - Curiosity — will attempt a touchdown on the surface of Mars. Marc Kaufman is a science writer for the Washington Post and the author of a new e-short coming out from National Geographic, Mars Landing 2012: Inside The Nasa Curiosity Mission. He will explain the high drama of the upcoming landing, what scientists are calling “the six minutes of terror” landing. Kauffman’s short will be followed by a full National Geographic book in 2014. Then finally, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Vint Cerf. He works for Google, and Cerf is known as the “Father of the Internet.” So, he travels a lot to attend conferences and give speeches. But he isn’t absorbed with the wonders of the Web. Cerf makes it a point to strike up conversations with as many strangers as he can. He says face-to-face communication teaches him something new every day, and he does his best to treat everyone he meets with respect. [Broadcast Date: August 3, 2012]
