Destined for War? Future of the American & Chinese Relationship
World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth – It’s hard to believe that China’s economy was less than half of the United States in 2004. Yet today, China’s purchasing power has left America playing catch-up. That dramatic shift is just one of the flashpoints Graham Allison says may lure both nations into what he calls “Thucydides’s Trap”—an inevitable trajectory toward a dangerous conflict. Allison’s bestselling book—Destined for War—explores the factors fueling a diplomatic tug of war that could ignite into war. With a significant increase in China’s military spending over the past decade and the People’s Liberation Army boasting nearly a million more active service members than the U.S., President Xi Jinping’s pledge to return China to a superpower status isn’t quiet bravado. Allison’s warning is honed from his years as a leading U.S. national security and defense policy analyst. Up until July 2017, he spent more than 20 years as director of Harvard’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs—with particular expertise in nuclear weaponry, terrorism and decision-making. As Assistant Secretary of Defense during the first Clinton administration, Allison received the Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service for "reshaping relations with Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakhstan to reduce the former Soviet nuclear arsenal." Don’t miss his sobering insights during this provocative World Affairs Council program.

Tias Little - Yoga and The Deep Life Force - Weekend Workshop
Dallas Yoga Center – $265 by Dec 19 / $295 by Jan 9 / $325 After – ALL five sessions Individual session pricing shown below ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Friday 6:30-8:30pm 2 Hrs $55 Individual session BLOOD: Blood is the essence of our life force, and transports prana, the essential life force, through the blood stream. In yoga, when we bathe all the cells and tissues of the body there is radiant health. This class is designed to help irrigate blood and lymph through all the channels of the body. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Saturday 9:30-12:30pm 3 Hrs $85 Individual session BREATH: Breath is not only the inhalation and the exhalation, but the dynamic pumping of the life force (prana) throughout the entire body. In this class we practice suffusing blood into all the living tissues in order to oxygenate and revitalize the body tissues. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Saturday 2:00-5:00pm 3 Hrs $85 Individual session BONE: As we age the bones become lighter and less stable. In this class we learn to stand in the bones where the marrow or deep life force resides. One of our aims is the practice of “bone dropping technique” to give weight to the bones. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sunday 9:30-12:00pm 2.5 Hrs $70 Individual session SKIN: The skin is our boundary between ourselves and the world. So often the skin is constricted, dehydrated or numb due to stress and fatigue. In this class we expand and tone the skin in yoga postures by stretching our “skin suit” in yoga postures. In this way we support lymph drainage. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sunday 1:00-2:30pm 1.5 Hrs $45 Individual session JOINTS: The aim of a vital yoga practice is to keep the health of the joints. As we age the joints become compacted, arthritic and lose mobility. Arteries, veins and nerves pass through the joints, so when the joints are supple, overall circulation is improved. This class is devoted to detail movements in the knees, ankles, shoulders, wrists and spine. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tias Little synthesizes years of study in classical yoga, Sanskrit, Buddhist studies, anatomy, massage, and somatic healing.
