Friday: Detroit Bankrupt, Worm Memory, Syria Refugee Camp and Boys of Baraka Ice Cream


Part One:
*Detroit Bankrupt. Facing massive debt and now economic collapse, the future of what was once America's industrial heart is now even more troubled. But some believe the city's woes are not only financial. Reverend Charles Williams II of Detroit's King Solomon Baptist Church says the state is also democratically bankrupt.
*Worm Memory. Researchers discover that after flatworms grow their heads back after decapitation, they keep their old memories.

Part Two:
*Syrian Refugee Camp. As U-S Secretary of State John Kerry visits some of the hundreds of thousands of Syrians who've fled to Jordan, the manager of the camp tells us that conditions are so poor some families are returning to the war they fled.
*Boys of Baraka Ice Cream. I scream, you scream, and so does Devon Brown's ice cream. The Baltimore man's new ice cream truck will feature flavours inspired by African American activism.
