Episode #344
Previously aired Sunday February 1st
On Sunday, a bill passed in December now allows banks to offer prize-linked saving programs, which function as a lottery that gives savers a chance at a large prize and a savings, since the deposit goes into an account that collects interest. Supporters of this approach say it appeals to low- and moderate-income households, but will they actually boost Americans' savings rates? Karla Murthy reports on NewsHour Weekend Sunday.

On Sunday, ahead of President Obama's visit to New Delhi next with with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, NewsHour travels to Gujarat, India to explore his policies. Modi's amassed many supporters throughout the country who praise his vision for growing the country's economy by creating jobs and improving the country's infrastructure by making land open for development. But staunch critics argue many states, whose residents live below the country's already low poverty line, are still lacking in education and health care, and that his election has compromised security by emboldening Hindu extremists.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the struggles of job seekers with criminal backgrounds. Even years after they've served time for past criminal infractions, those applying for jobs are often unable to find work -- especially in a climate of extreme job competition. And amid the Recession and grindingly slow economic recovery, those applicants are increasingly being driven into poverty. NewsHour's Stephen Fee reports.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend reports from Africa, where an ongoing and ambitious two-year project is underway. The mission: to count all of the elephants on the continent of Africa. The $8-million initiative called the Great Elephant census, funded by an American philanthropist, aims to save elephants through conservation efforts. But as elephant numbers continue dwindle across Africa, due in large part to poaching, researchers -- already faced with a herculean task and countries resistant to join the census -- must first establish how many they are trying to save. NewsHour's Martin Seemungal reports.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend travels to Belgium to explore the country's practices regarding the right to die by euthanasia. With the most liberal laws in the world governing physician-assisted suicide, which have been on the books since 2002, surveys in the country show overwhelming support for its legality. Doctors say it gives terminally ill patients experiencing constant and unbearable suffering a practical and humane way to die peacefully. But even in a country with far-reaching acceptance, controversy still remains. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports.

Previously aired Sunday December 28th
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend delivers an update to a previously aired story about people serving jail time because of their inability to pay legal fines and court costs, amounting to what some were calling the return of debtor's prison. Since the story aired last year, a new judge presiding over the Alabama court featured in the report has ruled that no defendant shall be imprisoned based on his or her inability to pay restitution. For hundreds of Alabama residents who still owe money, the ruling has meant a difference between prison and freedom. NewsHour's John Carlos Frey reports. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

This time, a chance encounter with a woman in first class resulted in a powerful story. Spanning years in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, his co-passenger's account of her family depicts poverty, disease and a run-in with the Ku Klux Klan. NewsHour's John Larson reports.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines federal whistleblowers, people who are incentivized by the False Claims Act to expose misconduct in companies that do business with the federal government. Last year alone, the government and its whistleblowers recovered a record $6 billion in lawsuits that exposed wrongdoing. But some question whether the False Claims Act actually prevents fraud or merely incentivizes people with potential reward money. NewsHour's Rick Karr reports.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend travels to California to explore the toll of the state's persistent drought during the hottest year ever recorded. In the four years since the drought 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 search of a solution, farmers who have drilled deeper and deeper into the ground for available water have sought help from unlikely sources. NewsHour's John Larson reports.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores Connecticut's gun laws in the wake of the two-year anniversary of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The state has some of the most restrictive gun policies in the country, bolstered by a new law signed by the governor last year to keep weapons out of the hands of the mentally ill -- but not without controversy. Advocates say this law could help prevent tragedies similar to Sandy Hook, but opponents maintain it punishes lawful owners and wouldn't stop a possible mass murderer. NewsHour's John Carlos Frey reports. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend revisits the issue of crowdfunding, raising a large pool of money from many small contributions online. It's something that was supposed to be an option for startup business to raise money when President Obama signed the 2012 JOBS Act into law. But today, crowdfunding to raise investment capital from ordinary investors still remains out of reach for many entrepreneurs. NewsHour special correspondent Karla Murthy explores the support, concern and timeline of the crowdfunding provision's implementation. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the issue of digital estate planning, originally reported on this past summer. Because social media, email and bank accounts can remain active even after their owner dies, valuable information can become vulnerable when the people in charge of managing the owner's estate can't access it. NewsHour's Hari Sreenivasan reports on the complications surrounding digital estate planning after death and the drive to increase awareness through legislative action. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
