Global I.Q. Minute with Senator Ted Cruz
At Senator Ted Cruz' program on Saturday, he sat for a Global I.Q. Minute interview with Council President Jim Falk and discussed his perspective of several hot topics in Washington including immigration, the relationship between Congress and the White House, the future of America's energy policy and production, support of Israel and nuclear negotiations with Iran.

National Insecurity
Our December 9 speaker David Rothkopf, a witness to leadership as a member of the Clinton administration, will discuss his new book, National Insecurity: American Leadership in an Age of Fear. But that's just one of many topics he's addressed lately. One of his more amusing pieces is the November 12 CNN essay titled "Leaders' funniest home videos." His sense of humor and irony and his perspective of media approach to leadership are evident in this essay. And, in the end, it isn't the media he blames.

Contemporary Art from the Emirates
The Council is pleased and excited to be sharing an extraordinary bit of art history — stop by the Council offices and see pieces from the United Arab Emirates, currently touring the nation in an exhibit titled Past Forward: Contemporary Art from the Emirates. (The art is available for public viewing in the Council offices at Republic Center 10 AM - 4 PM Monday - Friday through December 2, except Thanksgiving Week, Nov. 24 - 28. Parking is available in the Republic Center garage. For more information call 214-965-8400.)
While the Council is the exclusive Dallas host to these beautiful works, the remainder of Past Forward's Emirati art is on display in Fort Worth at Artspace111 Gallery and Gardens, 111 Hampton Street, through December 2.
