FROM THIS EPISODE

A medical school with a difference is planned for Southern California by Kaiser, the managed care system that runs hospitals and provides health insurance. The goal is hands-on experience for doctors trained to practice in systems of what's called "coordinated care." With the emphasis on new technology and cutting costs, does a doctor's "bedside manner" still have a future?

Also on the program, a court ruling on California's landmark Environmental Quality Act. Both developers and environmentalists won -- and lost.

California Court Limits Environmental Review 6 MIN, 57 SEC

The state law that developers fear most is California's Environmental Quality Act, or “CEQA.” Environmentalists often site it when they go into court to challenge proposed projects. Last week, the State Supreme Court issued a ruling that limited the scope of CEQA. Sean Hecht, co-executive eirector of UCLA's Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, has more on the ruling.
