The best and brightest segments from our daily program.

On this week's show, a miniature city helps cyber-warriors plan for the worst-case scenario, a sociologist ponders the roots of our obsession with obesity, a self-help writer discusses our societal drive to improve our lives, a music writer sharesher picks for most anticipated albums of 2013, and we take a trip to Monster Jam, where the trucks might be big, but not all their names are intimidating. Also, a cafe helps Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers forget about forgetting, and a class at UPenn teaches the heart-and-mine science of philanthropy.
