PRI's The World: 05/05/2015 ISIS says "two soldiers of the caliphate" were responsible for Sunday's attack at a Texas contest for Muhammad cartoons. It's the first time the group has claimed responsibility for an attack in the United States. We'll have more. Also, both France and Canada consider enhanced anti-terror legislation. Plus, today is Cinco de Mayo, and probably the only reason you know about this Mexican holiday is because of the company that makes Corona beer.
PRI's The World: 05/04/2015 We are staying on top of developments in Texas, in the wake of a shooting at an event featuring cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad this weekend. We'll chat with a Muslim leader in the Garland, Texas, area where the shooting took place, and examine the similarities and differences in this attack and the one on Charlie Hebdo in Paris earlier this year. Also, we bring you the story of an artist in Nicaragua who is using graffiti to help young women chart new courses for themselves. Plus, writer Tom Downey gives us his "Ten Commandments of Sushi."
PRI's The World: 05/01/2015 Tesla debuts a battery system for the home that would be powered by renewable energy and hopefully help people get off the grid altogether, but will the price be right for consumers? And what happens when the battery runs out? Plus, staying on the tech front, we hear how drones are being used to help recovery and relief efforts in Nepal. Also, a Vietnamese refugee tells us his story, and remembers coming to terms with such American things as Scooby Doo cartoons and Halloween.
