Predicting Violence - Adrian Raine, chair of the Criminology Department at the University of Pennsylvania, has studied the brain scans of violent killers for the last 35 years. In his controversial book, The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime, Raine proposes that brain scans can be used not only to predict violence but prevent it. But, as Lucky Severson reports, Raine's research raises ethical issues. Paul Wolpe, the director of Emory University's Center for Ethics, says he "cannot think of anything more dangerous" than Raine's policy recommendations. NYC Religions - New York has been called the most secular city in America, but a project called "A Journey Through NYC Religions" is attempting to disprove that. The group is documenting every religious site in the five boroughs, street by street, alleyway by alleyway. Since 2010, they've visited more than 6,500 houses of worship. Kim Lawton talks with project founder Tony Carnes and follows along on their journey.
