Did you hear the news about the NSA collecting thousands of photos of faces every day, as part of a facial recognition effort? Turns out, your face is more unique than your fingerprint, and government agencies and private companies are developing new programs to find and identify faces. The New York Times´ Natasha Singer gives us an update on the state of facial recognition. Then: So if you want to protect your privacy when you´re online or on the street, what do you do? Photographer Adam Harvey is developing a DIY solution. After that, one future that most of us face is seeing someone in the mirror we don´t quite recognize. Here´s Donna McNeil´s story about facing aging. Next, there´s an emerging option for people with severe facial disfigurements. The first facial transplant happened in France in 2006. Since then about 30 people have undergone the grueling surgery. In 2012, Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez led a team at the University of Maryland Medical Center that attempted the most extensive face transplant yet. That´s followed by physicist Michio Kaku´s dangerous (?) idea: A virtual ´´library of souls.´´ And finally: Got World Cup fever? Here´s Roger Kittleson on how Brazilian politics, culture, and passion is wrapped up in soccer. [Broadcast Date: June 18, 2014] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming.
