Episode #408
Previously aired Sunday July 26th
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines the unsung heroes of the African migration in the Mediterranean: the fisherman. As the civil war worsens, more migrants are being smuggled off the shores of Libya and end up stranded in neighboring Tunisian waters, leaving it up to those working at sea to rescue them. Already this year, Tunisian fisherman and coast guards have saved more than 800 migrants, and their work continues as the region's mass exodus persists. Lisa Desai reports.

Previously aired Saturday July 25th
On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the country's many independent contractors, workers like UberX drivers and TaskRabbit assistants who pick up work when they want it. Unlike traditional employees, independent contractors have no guarantee of hourly wages, no benefits and no safety net. But recent class-action lawsuits have alleged that many of the companies who employ these contractors are breaking the rules by misclassifying them as independent. Hari Sreenivasan reports.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend explores the issue of female genital mutilation in the United States. A recent report estimates that about 500,000 women and girls in the U.S. are at risk of or have been subjected to the practice. That's because when school lets out, countries that still have FGM increase the number of procedures they perform, according to a recent report. And in places where the practice is strictly prohibited, including the U.S., families often send their daughters back to their native countries to undergo the procedure. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines overseas remittances and the issues encountered by immigrants living in the United States. Nearly half of Somalia's population relies on money sent from abroad, but current banking regulations in the country meant to cut off funding for terrorist activity are now complicating transfers from those living in the U.S. to their relatives back home.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines the plight of African migrants faced with war, terrorism, disease and poverty, who are desperate to escape to Europe. In northern Somalia, despite being relatively free from the threat of Islamic terrorism, a "lost generation" of young people still seeks to leave. Now, the challenge is winning back their hearts and minds.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines the struggle of job applicants with criminal backgrounds. These job seekers, including those with nonviolent convictions, are often unable to find work -- even if it has been years since they served time for past criminal infractions. And given the current climate of extreme job competition, these applicants are increasingly being driven into poverty. NewsHour's Stephen Fee reports in this updated segment.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores California's historic drought. Since it began, the lack of water has cost thousands of jobs, caused noticeable changes in the landscape and induced desperation among citizens who are running out of options. In light of the state's newest restrictions implemented last month, famers who have drilled deeper and deeper into the ground for available water have sought help from unlikely sources. NewsHour's John Larson reports in this updated segment.

On Saturday, PBS NewsHour Weekend examines the effects of poverty on children's mental health and cognitive development.

On Saturday, while known as a Jewish state, Israel has 1.7 million Arab citizens, some 20 percent of the country's population. Yet Arab Israelis hold few leadership positions in the country -- and nearly half of the country's Arab population lives in poverty. But this spring, Arab Israeli lawmakers rallied under a unified political bloc for the first time, ushering a new generation of Arab Israeli lawmakers into parliament who intend to change the status quo. Special correspondent Martin Fletcher reports from Israel.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines the plight of homeless veterans in Los Angeles. The city, which has the highest number of vets without homes, recently signed on to an ambitious national effort to end the crisis by the end of the year. Now, hundreds of service providers are working toward that goal by following a model that first puts chronically homeless vets in permanent housing and then adds support services around the individuals.

Previously aired Sunday June 7th
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend revisits the issue of controversial automated traffic cameras, which are now used by hundreds of communities in the United States to detect and ticket motorists' violations. Advocates say the cameras free up police and make communities safer, whereas foes argue they primarily raise revenues. In Ohio, officials passed a law effectively barring the cameras from issuing traffic tickets unless a police officer is present, but several cities challenged the law, putting the issue in legal limbo as the state debates the constitutionality. NewsHour's Rick Karr reports in this updated segment.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend revisits the backstory of the Federal Trade Commission's recent $1.2 billion settlement over a so-called "pay for delay" deal involving the wakefulness drug Provigil. Opponents like the FTC contend the deals delay generic medications to market and cost consumers billions in lost savings. But drug companies say that the deals help get generics to market by avoiding lengthy patent litigation. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports in this updated segment.
