    In the early years of the AIDS epidemic, the CDC identified four risk factors for HIV infection: “homosexuals, hemophiliacs, heroin addicts and Haitians.” Although public health messages have changed to a recognition that behavior, not ethnicity, can lead to infection, stigma stills permeates the Haitian community. Producer Lakshmi Singh visits the immigrant community in the U.S. where the disease remains in the shadows and then travels on to Haiti.

    Imagine that your parent is your teacher, your siblings are your classmates, and your kitchen is your classroom. Plus, you get to study outside, choose your areas of interest, and do your classwork online. The image of the home-school is changing from detached and reclusive, to engaged and mainstream. And not all home-school education is alike. Home school parent and producer Heather Gattucio examines very different approaches to this alternative education.

    When Albert Einstein told us about the relationship between mass, energy, space and time, he assumed that the universe was static. Even though his first equations showed that in fact the cosmos was moving apart from some source, he thought that was a mistake. So he added a fudge factor — what he called the cosmological constant, a way of balancing the force of gravity. Later, he was to call the cosmological constant the biggest mistake of his life.

    When computers entered the classroom, hundreds of software programs were pitched to teachers and administrators. Yet few actually made the cut and became part of everyday use. What did become ubiquitous was software designed for the office such as Word, PowerPoint and email. What were the roadblocks that kept innovative software out of the classroom?

    The Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, is a common virus that touches billions of human beings in one way or another — from a tiny wart on the hand to invasive cancer. HPV can be found worldwide, yet most people who are infected never show any symptoms. The virus can "hide" for years from a person's immune system, with no apparent ill effects, and then awaken and trigger deadly disease.

    In conversations about the use of technology in schools, what you'll often hear is: Once we have a cadre of young teachers and administrators who've grown up with technology, computer use in schools will take off. This program examines that premise by following a young teacher, Brian Mason (7th grade American History) as he begins his second year in the classroom.

    “Plastics,” said the character in the movie The Graduate. “There’s a great future in plastics.” Today we understand how plastics degrade the environment. However, in 1988, research was just beginning to show the damage plastics could bring, from plastics bags and six-pack rings in the ocean to bottles clogging drainage areas and sea animals ingesting bits of plastic.

    Surrealist Andre Breton called the work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo "a bomb with a ribbon around it." The epic work of muralist Diego Rivera, to whom she was married, often overshadowed its miniature detail. Kahlo said she simply painted her life.

    Today the airwaves buzz with voices from cell phones, radio, television, and more. Yet, over one hundred years ago the air was strangely empty. Then on Signal Hill in Newfoundland, a young Italian inventor threw a kite antenna into the air and changed the world forever. The man was Guglielmo Marconi and his reception of the first trans-Atlantic wireless signal on December 12, 1901 has made possible almost every communication device we use today.

    Watsonville, California is part of the Salinas Valley, America’s salad bowl, and some of the most fertile land in this country. Watsonville served as home to canneries that produced most of the frozen food products sold in the United States. In 1985, nearly half the town’s 4,000 cannery workers went on strike. The strike was remarkable for a number of reasons. The workers were mostly women of Mexican heritage, many single mothers.

    "Truth is a pathless land" said the Indian spiritual leader and iconoclast J. Krishnamurti. He taught pacifism and harmony; he sought freedom through a transformation of the human psyche. People flocked to follow him as he moved across continents and through much of the twentieth century, spreading his word. He never wanted to be called a guru and yet his followers (who included Hollywood film stars) insisted on it.

    In 1990, a group of horseback riders completed a journey from Cheyenne River Reservation in Bridger, South Dakota to Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The 191 mile journey was a commemoration of the ride of Chief Big Foot and the Minneconjou Lakota in 1890, a ride that culminated in a massacre of most of the riders by the U.S. 7th Calvary. The commemorative ride was designed to teach the next generation about their history, to reflect upon what happened and to mend the hoop.

    In an age of high-tech, highly specialized medicine, the ancient healing arts of curanderismo are an attractive alternative. When they are ill, Mexican-Americans in the southwestern states often prefer to visit the curandero — the traditional healer — who uses herbs, scents, and rituals to treat the ills of their body, mind and spirit. Producer Maria Martin visits healers in the border town of El Porvenir, Mexico and in Buena Vista, New Mexico.

    Over one million Mayan Indians live and work in Southern Mexico, and six Mayan languages continue to thrive there—languages more than 3,000 years old. In the 1950s, anthropologist Robert Laughlin and his wife Mimi arrived in Chiapas, where Laughlin planned to conduct his linguistic research. At that time, he expected to learn the Tzotzil language without too much trouble, and be welcomed into the indigenous culture.
