Insight: Surviving Traumatic Brain Injuries / Fred Korematsu Comic Book / Folsom Housing Update / Homeless Count / Sound Advice: Off Air


Surviving Brain Trauma Many people are surprised at how well Gabrielle Giffords is recovering from being shot in the head. What does it take to come back from a major brain injury? Today on Insight, we'll talk about it with Dr. Kia Shahlaie, Assistant Professor of Neurological Surgery and Director of Neurotrauma and Neurocritical Care for the UC Davis Health System.

Fred Korematsu Comic Two UC Davis professors have written a comic book about a young Muslim-American girl's struggle with her identity in the wake of 9/11 and how she comes to learn of civil rights leader Fred Korematsu, who sued the United States over Japaneses internment in 1944. An elementary school in Davis is named after him. We'll talk with Anupam Chander and Madhavi Sunder about it.

Folsom Affordable Housing Update A couple of weeks ago, we heard how the City of Folsom planned to soon stop requiring developers to include affordable units in new housing developments. The City Council voted this week and we'll find out what happened.

Homeless Street Count Hundreds of volunteers head out tonight to count the homeless population for an annual survey. Paul Lake from the Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance tells you why it's done, how volunteers conduct the count and what the information will be used for in the future.

Sound Advice: Off Air Off Air host Nick Brunner joins us for our weekly music segment. He'll introduce us to some new indie and alternative rock, including a track by Sacramento's Sister Crayon that was recorded in our studios.
