    PBS NewsHour [#11041] CEASEFIRE- Israel and Hamas agreed today to an open-ended ceasefire, ending weeks of rocket fire and airstrikes. Gwen Ifill analyzes the agreement with Dennis Ross, a former US diplomat who is now a counselor at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and Shibley Telhami, the Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
    TAX FLIGHT - In recent years a number of US companies have relocated outside the country's borders by merging with or purchasing foreign companies. Burger King is the latest example. Today the company announced it will purchase Tim Hortons, a Canadian restaurant chain, and move its headquarters to Ontario, where the corporate tax rate is lower. Jeffrey Brown discusses this decision with economist Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, a joint venture of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution.
    RETHINKING COLLEGE - As part of a week-long series dedicated to "rethinking college," Hari Sreenivasan reports on the growing burden of student debt.
    QUEST FOR UNITY - The Obama administration has stated that it will only offer more military support to Iraq in its battle against the Islamic State militant group once the nation has formed a more inclusive government. Chief foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Warner reports from Northern Iraq on why national unity is a tall order for this fractured country to fill.
    BORDER CRISIS - As part of an ongoing series of conversations with those impacted by the immigration crisis, Jeffrey Brown speaks with Gary Thrasher, a rancher and veterinarian who lives in Arizona, near the Mexican border, and treats cattle from Arizona to New Mexico to West Texas- along a major corridor for illegal immigrants and drug smugglers.

    Rebels with a Cause Narrated by Oscar-winning actress Frances McDormand, this program spotlights a group of dedicated conservationists who fought to preserve open space, protect agriculture and wildlife, and establish public parks near San Francisco. Beginning in the 1950s, ordinary citizens from all walks of life, concerned by the intentions of residential land developers and the environmental cost of "progress," began banding together to save a vast stretch of Northern California coastline. Their passionate activism at both the local and federal level helped create Point Reyes National Seashore and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. These precedent-setting efforts also raised Californians' awareness of their power to promote change, fostered a national movement to preserve open spaces, and shaped the environmental movement of today. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    PBS NewsHour [#11042] JOINING THE ENEMY - It was confirmed yesterday that a US citizen, Douglas McAuthur McCain, was killed fighting for the Islamic State militant group in Syria. Gwen Ifill examines this development with Humera Khan, an expert in countering violent extremism, and Jessica Stern, an American policy consultant on terrorism.
    HOSTAGES - Peter Theo Curtis, an American writer and freelance journalist who was held captive by Islamic militants in Syria for nearly two years, has been reunited with his family in the US. His release comes shortly after the death of James Foley, another American journalist who was beheaded in a video released by the Islamic State militant group. In the video, the group also threatened the life of Steven Sotloff, a third kidnapped journalist. These events have renewed the focus on the United States' refusal to pay ransoms for the return of hostages, a policy that differs from many European nations. Jeffrey Brown discusses the issue with David Rohde, an investigative reporter who was kidnapped by the Taliban for seven months in 2008, and Brian Jenkins, a terrorism and security expert who has advised in hostage negotiations.
    ON THE FRONT LINES - As plans for the possible expansion of US airstrikes against Islamic State militants in northern Iraq appear to be firming, Margaret Warner reports on the humanitarian crisis in one besieged town in the troubled region.
    FLORIDA PRIMARIES - One of the most closely watched gubernatorial elections this fall will be in Florida, where Republican incumbent Rick Scott, and Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist, both scored big wins in yesterday's primary elections. Gwen Ifill analyzes the results with Adam Smith, the political editor for the Tampa Bay Times. RETHINKING COLLEGE - As part of an ongoing series on innovations in higher education, Hari Sreenivasan explores whether online courses, which aim to make college more accessible and affordable, have the potential to replace traditional classrooms. < br>LIFE IN MOTION - Misty Copeland is only the second African American woman to reach the level of soloist at American Ballet Theater. After a recent performance at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, she sat down with NewsHour to share the story of her rise from poverty to the spotlight.
