The London Attack
ISIS. Again. The Associated Press reports that ISIS, via its Aamaq news agency, declared that the man who attacked and killed people in front of the British parliament was "a soldier of the Islamic State."
So, what does ISIS really want?
The writer Graeme Wood of The Atlantic has answers based on years of contact with ISIS, including the organization's Plano-raised propaganda expert. Hear Wood discuss the chilling answers and ISIS goals at the Council's Tuesday, April 25, program.
Doug Mack draws America?
Doug Mack describes himself this way: "Writer. Tourist. Pastry Fiend." And he has a "party trick" with a U.S. map.
Don't miss his Council appearances when he discusses what he's learned about U.S. territories and "far-flung outposts" while traveling for 3 years and 31,000 miles. This journey resulted in his latest book The Not Quite States of America.
DIRK MAKES THE SHOT!
The Council has had previous H. Neil Mallon Award recipients involved in televised events, but there was no need for a confirmation hearing for our 2017 Mallon recipient Dirk Nowitzki! He shoots! He scores! Dirk hit the 30,000 career points mark Tuesday night at American Airlines Center and thrilled his fans, his teammates and his Council supporters. Courtesy of his Dallas Mavericks team, that's the video of the moment he became one of six players in the history of the NBA to reach 30,000 points. He also elevates his personal game and we'll honor him for his humanitarian accomplishments on September 22 at our 2017 H. Neil Mallon Award Dinner.
