Residents of 'Tehrangeles' disagree on the worth of the Iranian nuclear deal

Washington has been a focal point for discussions around the Iran Nuclear deal, but it’s not the only place the agreement is being debated. Around the country, people are making their opinions known — sometimes loudly, and sometimes more subtly — in coffee shops and at dinner tables. Nowhere is this debate more relevant than inLos Angeles’ Westwood neighborhood, also known as "Tehrangeles." It’s home to the largest Persian community outside of Iran.

Linking Havana, Tehran and Seattle through art, posters

A design show featuring poster artists from Seattle, Havana and Tehran opens Labor Day weekend at the Bumbershoot Festival. The show will later travel to Tehran and then Havana. The curators have jokingly titled the collection of posters, the “SHT show” because, they write, when the get together it’s fun — "no politics, no prejudices — just an appreciation of our common interests."
