    PBS NewsHour [#11037H] FOLEY - President Obama condemned the killers of American journalist James Foley in a press conference today, saying the world is appalled by his brutal murder. Foley was kidnapped in Syria in 2012. He was beheaded yesterday by members of the Islamic State militant group. The Islamic State group released a video of the beheading, which they titled "A Message to America." Gwen Ifill sits down with Charles Sennott, co-founder of Global Post, an online news service Foley was freelancing for at the time of his abduction.
    IRAQ - Provinces along the Syria-Iraq border have been overwhelmed by thousands of refugees who are fleeing the Islamic State group. Chief foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Warner, who is on assignment in Iraq, reports on their plight.

    ARCTIC THAW - Scientists who have been tracking Arctic thawing for decades, have seen a dramatic increase in thawing since the turn of the 21st century. Judy Woodruff discusses the thawing and its potential impact with NASA program scientist Thomas Wagner.

    Nova [#4109] Inside Animal Minds: Dogs & Super Senses What would it be like to go inside the mind of an animal? We have all gazed into a creature's eyes and wondered: what is it thinking about? What does it really know? Now, the revolutionary science of animal cognition is revealing hard evidence about how animals understand the world around them, uncovering their remarkable problem-solving abilities and exploring the complexity of their powers of communication and even their emotions. In this mini-series, NOVA explores these breakthroughs through three iconic creatures: dogs, birds and dolphins. We'll travel into the spectacularly nuanced noses of dogs and wolves, and ask whether their reliance on different senses has shaped their evolution. We'll see through the eyes of a starling in flight and test the tool-using skills of the smartest of birds, the crow. We'll listen in as scientists track dolphins in the Caribbean and elephants on the African savannah, trying to unlock the secrets of animal communication. As we discover how researchers are pushing the animal mind to its limits, we'll uncover surprising similarities to -- and differences from -- the human mind. What is it like to be a dog, a shark or a bird? This question is now getting serious attention from scientists who study animal senses. Humans rely on smell, sight, taste, touch and sound; other animals have super-powered versions of these senses, and a few have extra senses we don't have at all. From a dog that seems to use smell to tell time to a dolphin that can "see" with its ears, discover how animals use their senses in ways we humans can barely imagine. But it's not just the senses that are remarkable - it's the brains that process them. NOVA goes into the minds of animals to "see" the world in an entirely new way. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Last Harvest: The Yemenis of the San Joaquin This program explores the lives and times of Muslim immigrants from Yemen who settled in California's San Joaquin Valley. Yemeni migrant workers started coming to the US in the post-1965 era when the new immigration law opened the gates to non-Europeans. While most settled in the Detroit area, a small band of villagers from the mountainous Ibb region found work in the San Joaquin Valley where they tended the vineyards that produce a yearly bounty of internationally renowned table grapes. At the peak of the sojourn migration, some 5000 Yemenis were employed in the fields. Today only several hundred remain. This is their story. duration 22:28   STEREO TVG

    POV [#2708H] A World Not Ours This film is a passionate, bittersweet account of one family's multi-generational experience living as permanent refugees. Now a Danish resident, director Mahdi Fleifel grew up in the Ain el-Helweh refugee camp in southern Lebanon, established in 1948 as a temporary refuge for exiled Palestinians. Today, the camp houses 70,000 people and is the hometown of generations of Palestinians. The filmmaker's childhood memories are surprisingly warm and humorous, a testament to the resilience of the community. Yet his yearly visits reveal the increasing desperation of family and friends who remain trapped in psychological as well as political limbo. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG
