Insight: Autism and Conception / Mayor Johnson / Dr. Rick Hodes / Sound Advice: Jazz


Autism and Conception Children conceived in winter have a greater risk of autism, according to a new study from UC Davis. An examination of the birth records of the more than 7 million children born in the state of California during the 1990s and early 2000s has found a clear link between the month in which a child is conceived and the risk of that child later receiving a diagnosis of autism. We'll talk with the researcher Dr. Irva Hertz-Picciotto about it.

Mayor Johnson We'll talk with Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson about the Kings staying in town for another year and what it's going to take to build a new arena to keep them here for the long term.

Dr. Rick Hodes A physician who works in Addis Ababba, Ethiopia is helping children who have medically "hopeless" cases to find life-saving free care in the U.S. Dr. Rick Hodes has adopted a half-dozen children on his own, and several have found homes here in America and a book was written about his work, "This is a Soul." He'll be in Sacramento to give a commencement address at UC Davis Medical School. We'll talk with him about his work.

Sound Advice: Jazz Capital Public Radio's host extraordinare Devin Yamanaka joins us for our weekly music segment. She'll introduce us to some new and reissued Jazz music.
