The Source: 'Terror in Europe' - The ISIS Threat

Oct 18, 2016

Attempts to combat ISIS in Europe have been marred by missteps and systemic breakdowns. "Terror in Europe," a documentary film and joint investigation by FRONTLINE and ProPublica, draws on interviews with counter-terrorism officials to tell the inside story of Europe's struggle to contain the ISIS threat.

Phase one of the $41.7 million East Meadows residential development, previously the location of Wheatley Courts public-housing complex, was officially unveiled on October 13 as part of ongoing efforts to bring life back to San Antonio's East Side.

San Antonio isn't known for its architecture scene, outside of the historic missions that is. San Antonio's skyline has often been targeted as lacking. The downtown's buildings have historically reflected the city's tourism industry. The smaller buildings like the Emily Morgan, the Sheraton Gunter Hotel and the Tower Life make a statement and belong to the NeoGothic movement.  The Tobin Center for Performing Arts renovation is the biggest endeavor the city has taken on recently.

Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, crushed by an earthquake six years ago and now hammered by a monster hurricane

Millions of dollars in tax credits for the renovation of more than 200 historic buildings and structures in central downtown could become available to developers if the City of San Antonio's application is approved to create a new historic district. 

The city spent $45,000 on the application for an official designation in the National Register of Historic Places, in hopes it will fast-track downtown development in the area, which includes approximately 0.33 square miles from the River Walk tourist area to just north of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
