Insight: The Arts and Basketball / Stem Cell Cloning / Nicolas' Garden


 
 
 
The Arts and Basketball The Sacramento Kings are not moving to Seattle and now the city is on track to build a new sports and entertainment complex downtown. But will the city's investment of $258 million in a new sports arena dry up available funds for struggling arts organizations like the Crocker Art Museum and the Community Center Theater? Or will a new arena do what Mayor Kevin Johnson says it will do and spur economic growth in downtown, boosting the bottom lines of the arts institutions in the city? We'll talk about this issue with Robert Tannenbaum, General Director of the Sacramento Regional Performing Arts, Capital Public Radio Arts Critic Jeff Hudson and Sacramento Bee Theater Critic Marcus Crowder.

Stem Cell Cloning Oregon Health & Science University researchers have discovered that cloned human embryos can produce embryonic stem cells, according to a study released last week. This is a scientific first and could potentially cure diseases: If stem cells are cloned from patients' own DNA, their bodies won't reject them. However, this raises ethical concerns associated with cloning, as well as the fact that these embryos are destroyed after their cells are used. We'll speak talk about the findings and what they mean, as well as implications for the future with stem cell researcher and UC Davis Associate Professor Paul Knoepfler.
