On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines a growing problem among many scientists who depend on grants from the government to carry out their work. As federal funding for biomedical research has been declining in real dollars over the past 13 years, getting a grant has become more difficult. Now, many say this hypercompetitive atmosphere may stunt not only the careers of promising scientists but also America's preeminent role in global science research. Special Correspondent Karla Murthy reports.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines the issue of Internet scarcity. There are more than 730,000 homes in New York City without broadband access. And because the Internet today is the gateway to everything from education to the economy, the city is trying to bring those families out of the digital dark. But Internet access requires more than a connection for cash-strapped families. It has to be affordable. Hari Sreenivasan reports from New York.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the water crisis in Israel, where over the past few years, the country's water shortage has become a surplus. Through a combination of conservation, reuse and desalination, Israel now has more water than it needs. And that could translate into political progress for the country in the Middle East, one of the most water-stressed regions in the world. NewsHour's Martin Fletcher reports from Israel.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines an increasingly prevalent form of computer hacking that's also draining victims' bank accounts: Ransomware. It's a type of software that hackers use to hold individuals' computers hostage, blocking access to all files, unless they agree to pay a ransom, usually with Bitcoins. And because anyone with an internet connection is vulnerable to attack, the problem highlights a growing threat that consumers face on both their personal computers and mobile devices. NewsHour's William Brangham reports from Massachusetts.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores a new take on climate change activism that's spreading throughout the world.

And the movement is being led those who have a higher stake in the welfare of future generations -- students. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports from Oregon.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines an ambitious new plan in San Francisco to completely end new HIV infections. About 50,000 people become infected with HIV every year in the United States and an estimated 13,700 still die from AIDS, even as improved treatments make the virus more manageable. While infections in San Francisco have been falling over the past eight years, they haven't gone away. And in a city where huge strides have been made in battling the epidemic that's killed tens of thousands of people, public health officials, doctors and activists are increasing their efforts to bring the number of new HIV infections down to zero. NewsHour's John Carlos Frey reports from San Francisco.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the popularity of solar energy in Hawaii, where residents pay the highest electricity costs in the country. In the tropical climate where federal and state tax credits make going solar a no-brainer, many homeowners have chosen to install rooftop panels. But in some parts of the state, the local utility company has slowed down approvals of new solar systems, saying that abundant users may threaten the safety and reliability of the power grid. And as the popularity of using rooftop solar energy permeates throughout the rest of the country, many Americans could soon enter the same gridlock. NewsHour Special Correspondent Mike Taibbi reports from Oahu, Hawaii.

With the recent executions of Coptic Christians in Libya, the kidnappings of more than 200 Assyrian Christians near the Turkish border, and the destruction of ancient Christian artifacts in Iraq, the religion has landed in the much-publicized rampaging path of ISIS. Now, about a dozen American, British and Canadian Christians have joined the fight to help protect the religion and its followers.

Social media, email and bank accounts often remain active even after their owner dies, meaning valuable information can become vulnerable -- especially when estate managers can't access these accounts. While digital estate planning has its own set of complications, the drive to increase awareness for social media users of all ages has led to legislative action. And now, Facebook has introduced its own solution to the problem. Hari Sreenivasan reports on NewsHour Saturday.
