On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend travels to San Francisco, as a vote on whether to tax sugary drinks in the city draws near. Similar to others proposed in cities across the country, the tax would raise the price of sodas, teas, energy drinks and any others that contain added sugar. Proponents of the tax cite sugary drinks as one of the prime culprits in the diabetes and obesity epidemic sweeping the nation. But critics suggest the tax would hurt small businesses, not to mention make consumers pay more at the register. NewsHour Weekend Correspondent William Brangham reports.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend travels to Kansas to examine one of the biggest surprises of the 2014 midterm elections. In two races that were on no one's radar only a few months ago, two Republican incumbents find themselves in serious political peril, as the now-possible outcomes have the potential to shift, among other things - who controls the U.S. Senate. NewsHour's Jeff Greenfield explores whether the candidates may be too conservative for their historically red state. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Saturday, in recognition of the return of American Graduate Day, NewsHour Weekend explores concerns about a fundamental educational issue in the state of Florida. Recently, the state mandated the 300 lowest-performing schools add an extra hour of reading instruction each day, the first in the country to implement such changes. While polices like this have improved reading scores in the past, not everyone is convinced the extra hour is the right solution. NewsHour Special Correspondent Alison Stewart reports on the shift from Orlando. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

While local officials maintain the government is working to slowly improve conditions for the ethnic minority, the Roma, on the other hand, say they've been abandoned by it. NewsHour Weekend's Stephen Fee reports from the city of Miskolc where the majority of Roma citizens live in poverty. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Even though it has been legal in the state for nine months, some people are still choosing to buy it on the black market, saying the legalization has creating two systems: a legal market for those who can afford it and an underground one among people of color.

In an effort to reassure the Jews of France that they are safe in the country, the government has taken strict measures against anti-Semitic demonstrations, while some citizens urge fellow Jews to oppose the extremists and stay in France.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines how the acquisition of America's largest pork producer by a Chinese company fits into China's plan to modernize its food industry. Even after the Chinese government announced the largest agrarian reforms in world history in an effort to feed its citizens, consumption is still skyrocketing as more people move into the middle class. Now, in the country that consumes half of all the world's pork, the government is tasked with improving the quality and security of its food supply. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines the Paleo Diet, which has gained popularity in recent years. Advocates of the diet promote eating foods they say are more in line with what our ancient ancestors ate, such as meat and vegetables rather than dairy and grains, which were introduced after the invention of agriculture. But the diet's modern version may not actually give an accurate picture of what our predecessors really ate. Science writer Ann Gibbons joins NewsHour Weekend's Hari Sreenivasan to discuss how to follow the real Paleo Diet. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
