    Global Pop Trivia Night - Week 3


    The World Affairs Council Inland Southern California, in conjunction with the World Affairs Councils of America Network, is hosting a nationwide global trivia challenge! 

    Join WAC Inland Southern California for a free Global Pop Trivia competition. The virtual game will take place every Thursday at 6 pm PST from May 21- June 11.  Participate in all 4 weekly competitions, or just jump in for one.  All ages welcome (questions may be difficult for children).  

    Competition format: Each quiz will consist of 40 multiple-choice questions. You'll have just 25 seconds to answer.

    You may compete independently or with the whole family. If you play as a team, members must physically be in the same place and keep the same team name each week. We'll be using Zoom and MyQuiz to host the quizzes. We'll send you detailed instructions on how to access once you register. Topics will cover general knowledge and pop trivia (history, culture, geography, sports, etc.) - there is no study guide.

    Prize: Winner will receive a gift card to a local business, Augie's Coffee!

    Register: Registration is open to the first 50 contestants. 

    Questions: Contact Katie at kyutuc@llu.edu

    We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!

    *Note: Our host will be on the Zoom call reading out every question as well as giving extra info between questions, while the quiz will be conducted on myquiz.org. It is recommended that you have separate devices (ie. laptop and phone) for the Zoom call and the trivia questions, although it is also possible to have the call and myquiz.org open in two separate windows on one computer.

    China, the FBI, and Industrial Espionage
    Featuring Mara Hvistendahl

    June 18, 2020
    10:00 am

    Mara Hvistendahl is an investigative journalist with
    The Intercept
    , where she covers tech, national security,
    and China. She is the author of the book The
    Scientist and The Spy: A True Story of China, the
    FBI, and Industrial Espionage
    . As you read the
    events surrounding a Chinese scientist accused
    of stealing American secrets, you will see the
    reason that China and the US have very different
    perspectives on  "Industrial Espionage" and what
    should be done to prevent it.The Washington Post
    called “a riveting whodunit” and The Wall Street Journal
    described as “captivating and well-researched.” 

    Mara has given talks at venues including the Council
    on Foreign Relations, the East-West Center, the National
    Asian American Pacific Bar Association, and at
    international literary festivals and bookstores around
    the world. She is also a frequent speaker at universities.
