Insight: Mike McGowan / Enemy Alien / Immortal Jellyfish? / Shayla Rivera


Mike McGowan What do California counties think about Governor Jerry Brown's plan to shift more responsibility to them? Today on Insight, we'll talk about realignment, plus the Conaway Ranch and crash tax controversies with Yolo County Supervisor Mike McGowan.

"Enemy Alien" ­New York filmmaker Konrad Aderer is in Sacramento for the California premiere Satruday of his film "Enemy Alien." Aderer, who started this investigative documentary about a Muslim American picked up after 9/11, discovered his own family's history during the process. His Japanese American grandmother was imprisoned during World War II.

The Northern California Time of Remembrance Committee hosts "Enemy Alien: An Innocent Post 9/11 Detainee's Fight for Freedom" at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 19th at the California Secretary of State's Auditorium, 1500 I St., Sacramento.

Immortal Jellyfish? There is a species of jellyfish that, unlike other jellies that die at the end of their lifespan, transforms into a tiny blob that anchors itself to a rock or other surface and changes back into its juvenile, polyp form. We'll talk with researchers Rick Grosberg and David Plachetzki about it.

Shayla Rivera Shayla Rivera worked for eight years at NASA on the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station programs at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX before turning her sights to comedy. She's been named "Funniest Latina Comedian" and had a one-woman show "Rocket Science and Salsa," directed by Debbie Allen. She's performing at the Punchline in Sacramento this weekend and you'll meet her.

Shayla Rivera performs at 8 and 10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 18th and Saturday, Feb. 19th and 8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 20th at the Punchline, 2100 Arden Way, Sacramento. Information: (916) 925-8500.
