    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.

    Nova [#4110] Inside Animal Minds: Who's The Smartest? 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. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Knee Deep This program follows a culturally diverse group of dedicated senior citizens who are pooling their collective knowledge for a common cause: the environmental health of the Delaware Valley's waterways. The Park Senior Environment Corps is quietly generating scientific data that someday will feed into a global database documenting the long-term health of the world's rivers and streams, and possibly spur changes in the management of water and waste.

This film, executive produced by Brad Pitt, provides an unprecedented inside look at the global deal making and dark underside of energy development - a contest for money and power that is reshaping the world. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG-L
