The Dallas Cowboys have been ranked the most valuable team in the world, Perot Museum is expanding its program that takes learning on the road, and a new Dallas vegan food business provides guilt-free treats.
How ’bout them Cowboys! The Dallas Cowboys might not have won a Super Bowl since 1995, but according to Forbes, the team has a new title: World’s most-valuable sports team. The magazine said the Cowboys, valued at $4 billion, is the first non-soccer team to top its list since 2011. The value of America’s Team, which is building The Star complex in Frisco as a new high-tech headquarters/training home, went up 25 percent in the past year. Owner Jerry Jones team has generated massive revenue, even without a championship in two decades. Forbes has more about the list here.
The Perot Museum is steering kids toward science with a learning lab on wheels. The museum partnered with Dell to launch its second TECH Truck, which stands for Tinker, Engineer, Create, Hack. The truck hits the road this summer, and is expected to bring science lessons to 22,000 students by the end of August according to KERA News. Recently visiting the University of North Texas Dallas campus, the program serves many low-income communities that may not have other opportunities to visit the museum.
The Dallas vegan scene just got sweeter thanks to the first local vegan dessert food truck, Vegan Noms. Dallas-native Allison Catalani operates the business, which has recently expanded to carry its products at all Central Market grocery stores in Texas. Dallas Innovates recently explored the creative options available for the vegan community, proving that food can be both delicious and free of animal products. GuideLive has more on the healthy treats as well as “Noms and Namaste”, events hosted by Catalani combining her passions for baking and yoga.
