ISIS Executes James Foley, “Bad Feminist,” and B.K.S. Iyengar

Slain journalist James Foley was captured nearly two years ago while reporting in Syria. The Islamic militant group ISIS beheaded Foley and posted a video of his execution online yesterday. We talk to a co-founder of Global Post, the news group Foley was reporting for. And the person who executed journalist James Foley appears to be British. We take a look at the connection between ISIS and foreign fighters, many from the US and Europe. On our weekly internet roundup, we look at the struggle of social media sites to stop terrorists from using their services to spread extremist messages. Roxane Gay talks about being caught between pop culture and feminism, and her new book “Bad Feminist.” Finally, we pay tribute to world famous yoga guru B.K.S. Iyengar and environmental design pioneer Deborah Sussman.
