"The baby boomer generation is headed for a shock as it hits retirement: boomers will be long on life expectancy but short on income. In addition to Social Security, the pillars of retirement income for Americans have been either lifetime corporate pensions or employee-contribution plans such as 401Ks. But both retirement strategies are in trouble. Buffeted by pension cuts, corporate bankruptcies, and the 2001-2002 stock market crash, most boomers now expect to be working into their retirement years."--Container

The Trouble with Antibiotics. "Each year, an estimated 2 million people in the U.S. are infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria - and at least 23,000 die. As the crisis deepens, FRONTLINE correspondent David E. Hoffman turns his attention to the American farm, a sector that comprises an estimated 70 percent of all antibiotics sold. Hoffman travels the country to investigate new research out of Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Texas focusing on how antibiotics on the farm might be contributing to the growth of resistant bacteria that threaten the health of people. FRONTLINE traces the history and controversy over antibiotics in agriculture, discovers gaps in basic data about how antibiotics are used on the farm - and raises questions about why that information does not exist." Outbreak at NIH. "Frontline returns to the story of a superbug outbreak at one of the nation's most prestigious research hospitals, the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, with an exclusive interview with the parents of a young man who died in the outbreak."--disc container
