Episode #402
Previously aired Sunday July 5th
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.

Previously aired Saturday June 20th
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 Sunday, NewsHour Weekend profiles South African photographer and activist Zanele Muholi, whose mission is to create visibility for black lesbian and transgender communities in her home country through her work. Her latest exhibit is currently on display at the Brooklyn Museum through November 2015. Also on Sunday, NewsHour Weekend explores a NASA-funded study focused on the psychological impact of a potential mission to Mars.

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. NewsHour's John Carlos Frey reports from LA.

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.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the oil boom in North Dakota. Nearly a million barrels of crude oil are extracted from the ground each day in the state, and instead of pipelines, most of it is transported by rail. Now, prompted by a series of catastrophic accidents, the Department of Transportation has proposed a plan that could cost the industry $2.5 billion to phase out older cars they say are more prone to rupture. NewsHour's Stephen Fee reports.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend explores the re-interpretation of the Muslim faith in South Africa, where recently, a Muslim academic opened a gay- and women-friendly mosque. The move was regarded as a response to the culture of exclusion and conservatism in the Muslim faith. And despite receiving death threats and fierce criticism, experts say the house of worship's policies represent an adaptation of centuries-old traditions. NewsHour Special Correspondent Martin Seemungal reports from Cape Town, South Africa.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines the issue of concentrated poverty, which refers to poor individuals and families living near one another, clustering in certain neighborhoods and regions. This results in higher crime rates, underperforming public schools, poor housing and health conditions, as well as limited access to job opportunities. And the number of people living in high-poverty areas is rising. But strategies to turn these areas around may be on the horizon. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports from Atlanta.
