          Ethiopia Airlines crash: Which countries have grounded the 737 Max 8?      Cache   Translate Page      

A growing number of airlines around the world have grounded their Boeing 737 Max 8 jets following the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane that killed 157 people on Sunday. Here is a list of other countries that have grounded the aircraft so far: UK The UK’s Civil Aviation Authority has banned any commercial passenger flights by Boeing 737 Max aircraft from “arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace”. In a statement, the CAA said: “The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been closely monitoring the situation, however, as we do not currently have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace. “The UK Civil Aviation Authority’s safety directive will be in place until further notice. “We remain in close contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency and industry regulators globally.” Tui Airways, which has the only five 737 Max 8 aircraft operated by a UK-based airline and was due to begin flying a sixth later this week, said in response to the CAA announcement that other aircraft would be used to transport passengers who were due to fly in the jets. The statement said: “TUI Airways can confirm that all 737 MAX 8 aircraft currently operating in the UK have been grounded following the decision from the UK regulatory authorities today. “Any customers due to fly home today on a 737 MAX 8 from their holiday will be flown back on another aircraft. “Customers due to travel in the coming days will also travel on holiday as planned on other aircraft. “The safety and well-being of our customers and staff has remained our primary concern.” Ethiopia A spokesman for Ethiopian Airlines says it will ground its remaining four Max 8 jets as an “extra safety precaution” while it investigates Sunday’s deadly crash. Asrat Begashaw said investigations and the search for bodies and aircraft debris will continue. The airline is awaiting the delivery of 25 more Max 8 jets. Brazil Brazil’s Gol Airlines has suspended the use of 121 Max 8 jets. The airline said it is following the investigation of the Max 8 closely and hopes to return the aircraft to use as soon as possible. Gol said it has made nearly 3,000 flights with the Max 8, which went into service last June, with “total security and efficiency”. Cayman Islands Cayman Airways, a Caribbean carrier, said it stopped using its two Max 8 jets starting on Monday. President and CEO Fabian Whorms said the airline is committed to “putting the safety of our passengers and crew first”. Mr Whorms said the move will cause changes to flight schedules. Cayman is the flag carrier of Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory. It received its first Max 8 in November and its second earlier this month. China China has 96 Max 8 jets in service, belonging to carriers such as Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines. The civilian aviation authority directed the planes to be grounded indefinitely on Monday. It said the order was “taken in line with the management principle of zero tolerance for security risks”. There were eight Chinese citizens on the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed shortly after taking off on Sunday. The authority said it will consult the US Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing before deciding when to lift the ban. India India’s Jet Airways says it is “in contact with the manufacturer” of Max 8 jets and has grounded five of them starting on Monday. Indian airline SpiceJet also uses the aircraft, but it is unclear if those planes are grounded. On Monday, India’s aviation watchdog ordered a safety assessment of the aircraft. It also issued safety instructions for flying the Max 8 jet. Indonesia Indonesia says it will temporarily ground Max 8 jets to inspect their airworthiness. Director general of Air Transportation Polana B Pramesti said the move was made to ensure flight safety. A Lion Air model of the same plane crashed in Indonesia in October. Indonesian airlines operate 11 Max 8 jets. Lion Air, which owns 10 of them, said it will try to minimise the impact of the decision on operations. The other Max 8 jet belongs to national carrier Garuda. Mexico Mexican airline Aeromexico has suspended flights of its six Max 8 jets after the crash in Ethiopia. Aeromexico said it “fully” trusts the safety of its fleet but ordered the grounding to ensure “the safety of its operations and the peace of mind of its customers”. It said other planes will take over the routes usually flown by the Max 8. Singapore Singapore has temporarily banned Max 8 jets — and other models in the Max range — from entering and leaving the country. The civil aviation authority said it was “closely monitoring the situation” and the ban will be “reviewed as relevant safety information becomes available”. It added that it was in close communication with the FAA, Boeing and other aviation authorities. SilkAir, a regional carrier owned by Singapore Airlines, has six Max 8 jets. It said the ban “will have an impact on some of the airline’s flight schedules”. The authority said flights to Singapore by China Southern Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, Shandong Airlines and Thai Lion Air will also be affected. South Korea An Eastar Jet official said that the planes will be replaced by Boeing 737-800 planes from Wednesday on routes to Japan and Thailand. She said the airline has not found any problems, but is voluntarily grounding Boeing 737 Max 8s in a response to customer concerns. She says the planes will not be used until the completion of a government safety review on the aircraft. An official from South Korea’s Transportation Ministry says it has yet to find any problems from safety reviews on Eastar’s planes that started on Monday. Australia Australia has suspended all flights into or out of the country by Boeing 737 Max aircraft. Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority says no Australian airlines operate the aircraft type, but two foreign airlines — SilkAir and Fiji Airways — fly them to Australia. Director of aviation safety, Shane Carmody, says that because of the two accidents, the temporary suspension of Boeing 737 Max operations is in the best interest of safety.

          Kαθηλώνονται στο έδαφος όλα τα Boeing 737 Max 8 στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ενωση      Cache   Translate Page      

Η Υπηρεσία Ασφάλειας Πτήσεων της Ευρωπαϊκής Ενωσης αποφάσισε να καθηλώσει στο έδαφος όλα τα αεροσκάφη τύπου Boeing 737 Max, όπως μετέδωσε σε μία σύντομη είδηση με την ένδειξη «επείγον» το πρακτορείο Reuters.

To διεθνές πρακτορείο μεταδίδει ταυτόχρονα, ότι μετά την Βρετανία, η Γερμανία και η Γαλλία προσχωρούν στην ομάδα των χωρών που διακόπτουν τις πτήσεις του συγκεκριμένου τύπου αεροσκάφους, μετά το τραγικό δυστύχημα στην Αιθιοπία με θύματα 157 επιβάτες. 

Η αμερικανική εταιρεία Boeing αντέδρασε δηλώνοντας ότι κατανοεί τις αποφάσεις αυτές, ωστόσο διατηρεί «απόλυτη εμπιστοσύνη» στις προδιαγραφές ασφαλείας του 737 Μax.

Η τραγωδία στην Αιθιοπία ήταν η δεύτερη μέσα σε πέντε μήνες με πτώση του ίδιου τύπου αεροσκάφους, αφού προηγήθηκε δυστύχημα υπό ανάλογες συνθήκες στην Ινδονησία, όπου έχασαν τη ζωή τους 189 επιβάτες πτήσης της Lion Air.

 

Μπαράζ αποφάσεων για διακοπή πτήσεων του 737 Max 

Η συντριβή του 737 Max 8 της Ethiopian Airlines κοντά στην Αντίς Αμπέμπα, τέσσερις μήνες μετά από παρόμοιο δυστύχημα στο ίδιο μοντέλο αεροσκάφους της Lion Air στη Ινδονησία, οδήγησε πολλές χώρες και εταιρείες να καθηλώσουν στο έδαφος αυτό το αεροσκάφος μεσαίων αποστάσεων.

          Wow: 1930's Early Signed TAXC0 925 STERLING Silver Blue Enamel & Flower Front Latch Bangle w/Hanging LAPIS/Silver Charm by THEUNITGAL      Cache   Translate Page      

97.00 USD

Here is quite an early signed TAXCO piece, likely from the 1930's.

It is signed on the back (see last photo) "TAXCO MEXICO 925 SILVER."

These stunning one piece LATCH FRONT BANGLE/CUFFS were all the rage mid century and before, but remain collector's pieces and "ALL THE RAGE" now.

Because they are classics!

The piece has a 2 1/4" interior diameter and latches on one side.

Dangling from the side that looks like a latch but is stationary, is a THREE PIECE GENUINE LAPIS and STERLING Charm that measures 1 1/4" in length. The top and bottom are small LAPIS faceted rondelles, and the middle piece is TIBETAN LAPIS with sterling etching top and bottom. SCALLOPED sterling spacers separate the Tibetan Lapis from the other pieces.

This dangle, handmade, is the perfect compliment to this beautiful bracelet.

THE LATCH is a 1" side to side and 1/2" up and down stunning OVAL which has very old fashioned flowers either hand painted or pressed into it. Whichever way it was done, it is massively unique and extraordinarily beautiful.

A stand-out in workmanship and simplicity, both the BANGLE and the PENDANT showcase magnificent construction, color and a superior uniqueness. The colors are strong and saturated and amazingly impressive: the combination of colors being utterly sensational.

TAXCO is renowned for its superior silver, and this vintage silver bracelet still shines endlessly brightly with no mars that I can visualize. Both the pendant and the bangle are in beyond excellent condition.

This wonderful piece is flush with a lush, artistic beauty and achieves a specific, grand appeal and loveliness that, in the final analysis, begets one truly unforgettable and distinctive bracelet.

It is, indeed, ONE OF A KIND and a singularly impressive and beautiful piece in terrific vintage condition!

**NOTE: The piece is in excellent vintage condition with no mars, scratches, cracks that I can see. What looks like it might be a flaw in the enamel front is actually my fingerprint (sorry).

In the mid-1980s, the Iran–Contra affair was a United States political scandal that happened during the Reagan administration. Senior Reagan administration officials, aided by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), secretly facilitated the sale of arms to Iran, the proceeds of which were intended to fund the Nicaraguan Contras, in defiance of the Boland Amendment which prohibited the funding of Nicaraguan government rebels. At the time, Iran was under an arms embargo by the U.S., but officials hoped that the illegal arms sales would secure the release of American hostages being held in Iran, while at the same time, allow the CIA to fund the Nicaraguan Contras surreptitiously.

To pull off this clandestine feat, the CIA conspired with the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico, to sell cocaine in the United States, especially southern California. The money raised was used to covertly buy the illegal arms for the Iranian sale. One man, an investigative reporter named Gary Webb, discovered evidence of the plot and began to report on the existence of the operation in the mid-1990s. In 2004, he was found dead with two bullet holes in his skull which the coroner declared a suicide. Gary Webb apparently offed himself by shooting himself in the head… twice. Or so the coroner’s report ruled.

In 2003, the United States invaded Afghanistan, purportedly in pursuit of Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the 911 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. At the time of the American invasion, most of the poppy fields in Afghanistan had been destroyed by the Afghan government and the Taliban. But over a decade and a half later, Afghanistan, today, exports nearly 80 percent of the world’s heroin and opium, and poppy fields again litter the country’s landscape, guarded by U.S. troops overseen by the Central Intelligence Agency. These are facts, not fiction, and their truth is undisputed.

With this backdrop, our fictional story begins in 2016, in Tampa, Florida, where the younger brother of a U.S. Senator has overdosed on heroin. The tragic and untimely death of his brother motivates Senator Gavin Manson to write legislation to reform the antiquated drug laws in the U.S. and put an end to what he sees as the dangerous and destructive War on Drugs begun during the Nixon Administration. To that end, he hires a brilliant and beautiful researcher named Alexandra Katsaros. 

Together, Gavin and Alex begin to collect data on every facet of the drug world from big pharma to drug cartels to the heroin crisis in America. But when Alex uncovers a secret government plot to smuggle heroin into the United States from Afghanistan, a modern-day Iran-Contra operation, everything changes. Like Gary Webb, they now know too much, and the directors of the CIA’s black operation deem it imperative to silence them, forever.

If you are a fan of Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum or Dan Brown, this novel is right up your alley. The journey is a fast-paced ride halfway around the world as Gavin and Alex do their best to stay one step ahead of their determined pursuers. The novel’s seamless blend of fact and fiction will have you guessing what is real and what is made up. And all the while you’ll wonder, could this really happen? Could it actually be happening? The answer you will eventually be forced to admit is… yes. It is absolutely possible. Sometimes conspiracy theory isn’t theory at all.

          New Mexico: Speed bump as 4 state Senators vote AGAINST protecting pre-existing condition coverage (UPDATE: Strike that!)      Cache   Translate Page      

(sigh) Well, it was a good run while it lasted. As I noted last week, New Mexico's new Democratic trifecta government has been on something of a tear in the first few months of 2019, either passing or advancing a number of positive healthcare policies, including:

In addition, there was one more important piece of legislation which looked like it was going to go through without too much fuss: HB 436, which would simply lock in protections for New Mexico residents with pre-existing conditions at the same level that the Affordable Care Act already does nationally:

HB436 won't technically change anything for New Mexicans now...but what it would do is protect state residents in the event the ACA is ever repealed or if its pre-existing condition protections are weakened or stripped away (see: the Texas Fold'Em lawsuit).

With just nine days left in the 60-day legislative session, Thomson is optimistic there's still enough time to get her bill up to the Governor's desk.

"To me, it's pretty much a no-brainer. We're not changing anything per se," she said. "We're just locking in what's in federal law so there's not going to be any increased costs because we're already doing it."

Now that the bill passed the House it heads over to the Senate for consideration.

Unfortunately, over at the state Senate, it looks like three Republicans and one Democrat took "no-brainer" to be a challenge, because this is what ended up happening yesterday:

We are disappointed to report that the bill to protect New Mexicans with pre-existing conditions did NOT pass Senate Corporations.

YES: Mary Kay Papen
YES: Michael Padilla
YES: Bill Tallman
NO: Clemente Sanchez
NO: Bill Sharer
NO: Gregg Fulfer
NO: Pat Woods

Now, the last three names on this committee list aren't terribly surprising, since they're all Republicans. All 24 Republicans in the state House also voted against this common sense bill which doesn't cost New Mexico a dime and won't even have any impact on the state of any sort uniess the ACA's federal protections are ever repealed. It's a purely precautionary measure. I never expect Republicans to do the right thing, so this was disappointing but hardly surprising.

The first one, however, did sting: Clemente Sanchez, a Democratic state Senator.

Health Action New Mexico has issued the following press release in response:

NM Senate Corporations Committee votes against people with pre-existing conditions

On Monday, March 11th, on a 3-4 vote, the New Mexico Senate Corporations and Transportation Committee voted down a measure to protect people with pre-existing conditions. The legislation, House Bill 436, is sponsored by Representative Liz Thomson, 40 other House co-sponsors and Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino.

Senator Clemente Sanchez, the Committee Chairman, joined the committee's three Republicans to vote down the measure. The bill would have added pre-existing condition protections to state law. 332,000 New Mexicans under age 65 have at least one pre-existing condition, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Before the Affordable Care Act (ACA), people with pre-existing conditions were denied coverage, charged exorbiant rates, and subject to coverage exclusions for their pre-existing conditions. The ACA ended those practices by reforming the insurance industry and ensuring people with pre-existing conditions are protected.

"This vote was unconscionable," said Representative Liz Thomson. "New Mexicans need to know that the state has their back no matter what happens at the federal level or in the courts. I believe that the vast majority of my colleagues agree with me. This is not over."

"As someone continuing to battle cancer, I am shocked that anyone would vote against pre-existing condition protections," said Lan Sena, a New Mexico resident and patient advocate. "It's just not right."

"We are incredibly disappointed in this vote," said Colin Baillio, Director of Policy and Communications at Health Action New Mexico. "New Mexicans shouldn't have to live in constant fear that they are going to be abandoned when they need critical health care. Frankly, New Mexicans deserve better than this."

A recent national poll found that strong, bipartisan majorities support pre-existing condition protections. Nine-in-ten say insurance companies shouldn't be able to deny people coverage or charge sick people more than healthy people. Four-in-ten said they are "very worried" they "will lose their coverage if the Supreme Court overturns these protections." President Trump's Department of Justice singled out pre-existing condition protections, calling them unconstitutional and refusing to defend those protections in court. That lawsuit suceeded in the lower courts and is expected to land in the Supreme Court.

UPDATE: Whoa! Hold the phone...Less than 5 minutes after I posted this, someone called attention to an update from less than an hour ago:

BIG NEWS: After further consideration, @SenCSanchez changed his vote on pre-existing condition protections! Thank you for giving this a closer look, Senator. Thanks to everyone who made their voices heard. The bill will now move to the Senate floor. https://t.co/rbtv3ZyAc0

— Health Action NM (@HealthActionNM) March 12, 2019

Final vote:
YES: Mary Kay Papen
YES: Michael Padilla
YES: Bill Tallman
YES: Clemente Sanchez
YES: Benny Shendo
NO: Bill Sharer
NO: Gregg Fulfer
NO: Pat Woods

— Health Action NM (@HealthActionNM) March 12, 2019

Wow! I had no idea that they could change their votes on bills the next day! Not sure if this is a New Mexico thing, or a Committee thing (vs. the full Senate) or what, but whatever...this is great news for New Mexico and common sense!

(As for the Republicans, of course, that's a different story...)

Trump's Budget: Huge Cuts To Medicare And Medicaid

Right about now is when Prznint Stupid is going to be releasing his budget proposal for the year; it’s been delayed because of the gubmint shutdown, but you know, no one is mentioning that.

We should note for the record that budget proposals from the White House are not based in reality, and they usually arrive moribund. The prznint’s budget proposal is more about showing where Hair Füror’s priorities are than anything else, and boy-howdy, what low priorities does he have:

The president’s plan seeks deep cuts from agencies like the Department of Health and Human Services, the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Department. At the same time it would spend $8.6 billion on a border wall with Mexico and boost defense spending to $750 billion, both items sure to raise intense opposition from Democrats.

Calling for a total of $2.7 trillion in reductions over 10 years, the Trump administration is also taking aim at safety net programs, including hundreds of billions in cuts to Medicare and a request to drum up savings by imposing new restrictions on food stamps, housing assistance and aid to families that don’t make enough money to provide for their children.

          Some Men Just Want to Watch Mexico Burn, by Bryan Caplan      Cache   Translate Page      

In the introduction to La Vida, famed anthropologist Oscar Lewis unfavorably compares Puerto Rico to Mexico:

But perhaps the crucial difference in the history of the two countries was the development of a great revolutionary tradition in Mexico and its absence in Puerto Rico.  Puerto Ricans sought greater autonomy from Spain during the nineteenth century, but they were never able to organize a revolutionary struggle for their freedom, and the single attempt along this line, at Lares, was short-lived and never received mass support.  By contrast the Mexicans fought for their independence from Spain between 1810 and 1821, drove out the French in 1866 and later produced the great revolution of 1910-20 with its glorious ideals of social justice.  In the course of these struggles great heroes emerged, men who have become symbols of the Mexican spirit of revolution and independence.

La Vida was published in 1965, just 45 years after the end of the Mexican Revolution.  Lewis personally knew many Mexicans who lived through it.  But what actually happened during this “great revolution” with its “glorious ideals of social justice”?  The best paper I could find on the topic is Robert McCaa’s 2003 “Missing Millions: The Demographic Costs of the Mexican Revolution” (Mexican Studies 19, pp.367-400).  After a detailed review of earlier estimates, McCaa deploys new techniques to reach a grim conclusion:

The human cost of the Revolution was paid mainly in blood. Of a total demographic cost of 2.1 million, excess deaths accounted for two-thirds,  lost births one-fourth, and emigration considerably less than one-tenth of the total… The best two-sex inverse projection to 1930, taking into account the age and sex distribution of the population in that year,  points to some 3 million missing as of 1921. Census error in the 1921 enumeration reduces this figure by 1 million. Two-thirds of the remainder was due to one factor: excess mortality (1.4 million deaths), with 350,000 more male deaths than female. Lost births were substantially less at 550 thousand. Smaller still, at less than 10 percent of the total loss, was emigration to the United States, with the persisting number of male “refugees,” generously defined, slightly more than 100,000, and females about three-fourths of this figure.

The basic history of the Mexican Revolution, moreover, was hardly “heroic”:

[O]nly six months passed between Francisco I. Madero’s pronouncement of revolution (November 20, 1910) and the overthrow of the old dictator Porfirio Díaz. The resignation of Díaz came in late spring 1911 and was accomplished with little violence or destruction. The fighting scarcely began until 1911… Victory at Ciudad Juárez came to the revolutionaries on May 10, 1911, after a siege lasting only a couple of days… Although the fall of Díaz was achieved due to uprisings throughout the republic, the cost of the Revolution, to this point, was probably only a few thousand deaths.

The real fighting began as the revolutionaries trained their weapons on one another over the course of the following six years… Zapata, having waited four months to rebel against the hated Díaz, did not allow four weeks to pass before rebelling against the enormously popular Madero. In late November 1911, Zapata, “tired of waiting” for Madero to carry through an agrarian revolution, according to the conventional view, denounced Mexico’s first democratically elected president by proclaiming the Plan of Ayala. Yet, until 1912, Zapatistas did not pose a serious threat to the Madero government. Elsewhere regional bands (and bandits), some with plans, others without, escalated the plundering of the countryside, hamlets, and towns. As is well known, within two years of Díaz’s resignation the nation slid into chaos…

With the assassination of Madero on February 21, 1913 –- probably on the order of the Madero-appointed commander in chief of the federal army, Victoriano Huerta—civil war erupted. The usurper proved incapable of suppressing the many revolts… [A]fter the failure of the Convention of Aguascalientes to resolve the differences of regional warlords, an even bloodier phase of the Revolution began, as, once again, the victors turned on one another.The year 1915 was the year of hunger. Marauding bands destroyed the few crops that were sown, many before they could be harvested. Destruction continued into 1916, although with the defeat of the northern chieftain Pancho Villa at the Battle of Celaya in April 1915, the violence began to wane, however slowly. Devastation was made worse by the Spanish influenza epidemic of 1918/19, to be examined in detail below.

McCaa thoughtfully concludes:

Given the magnitude of the human losses caused by the Mexican Revolution, the silence of some scholars and disbelief by others is surprising…

For the Americas, both North and South, the Mexican Revolution was the greatest demographic catastrophe of the twentieth century. From a millennial perspective,the human cost of the Mexican Revolution was exceeded only by the devastation of Christian conquest, colonization, and accompanying epidemics, nearly four centuries earlier.

How then could as knowledgeable a scholar as Lewis credulously praise the sordid bloodbath that was the Mexican Revolution?  As a Marxist, he was obviously predisposed to positivity.  His gushing, however, would probably resonate with many non-Marxists, too.

So what would possess anyone to so gush?  One could say, “You can’t make huevos rancheros without breaking eggs.  The war was tragic, but the results were great.”  Since we’re talking about Mexico, though, this seems absurd.  Sure, it’s a middle-income country, but given its proximity to the U.S., gravity alone should have turned it into a peaceful, First World country by now.  Violence, moreover, remains a grave problem to this day.  The legacy of the Mexican Revolution is one of the better explanations for why a peaceful, prosperous Mexico has yet to emerge.

In any case, people who admire revolutions rarely bother with counterfactual history.  What excites them is revolution itself.  Revolution is romantic.  The vision of tearing down the wickedness of the world, serving wrong-doers their just deserts, charging barricades with our brave leaders, and building a better world on top of the ashes is a thrilling story.  Counting corpses and asking, “What was it all for?,” in contrast, is a real downer.

If you share this romantic vision, you might even welcome my analysis: “Yes, I’m inspired by revolutionary idealism.  At least they tried.”  Yet calmly considered, this romantic vision is inexcusable.  Launching a bloody war without even asking, “How likely is this war to improve the world?” is as “romantic” as drunk driving on a playground.  Giving revolutionaries credit for “trying” is ridiculous.  If you combine brutality with wishful thinking about the consequences, your real goal isn’t to make those consequences a reality.  Your real goal is just to exercise brutality.

So why did Lewis gush over the Mexican Revolution?  Batman’s butler got it right: “Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”  I’ve learned a lot from Lewis, but the less real-world influence people like him have, the better.

          Photoshop training for the digital classroom      Cache   Translate Page      
I like the manner in which individuals can attach over the Internet today. I have had various kinds of discovering experiences, from conventional class instruction to the newest elearning methods-and a taste of virtually everything in-between. I additionally have 15 years of experience teaching English as an international language in Mexico. And of all the training approaches I have seen, I think that elearning holds one of the most prospective as a system for Photoshop training.

When I initially began becoming aware of online classrooms, I didn't such as the idea significantly. In my mind I most likely connected elearning with conventional range finding out programs like tv and document courses. I'm grateful that I've had the opportunity to figure out just how wrong I was. Most individuals react adversely to new ideas the very first time they hear them. That appears to be a relatively global item of our education and learning and also socialization. It's a wonderful point when we are able to break down the barriers that create us to withstand new ideas.

When I had my first opportunity to take part in elearning, I understood almost instantaneously that I had been extremely incorrect in my opinions-it's easy to see why currently. I really did not such as conventional tv training courses due to the fact that they were also much less interactive than standard class instruction-communication was one way, instructor to pupil, with no technology to permit students to ask the instructor questions during a course. And also typical correspondence courses were even more irritating in the days when general delivery was the only system to assist in communication in between instructors as well as students.

The element that makes elearning so totally various from traditional distance discovering systems is the interactivity that elearning not only enables, however motivates, encourages, and welcomes. Interactivity is the crucial element, the motor that drives the surge in online training today. Trainees who are also timid to speak up in the conventional classroom environment now have in their hands a powerful tool for conquering their shyness.

One more thing I like regarding elearning is that you have more flexibility to practice what you're learning. If you're taking a Photoshop training program, for instance, your method field is right at home on your computer.

As an instructor of English as an international language, I have actually always discovered that successful students often find out as much from their schoolmates as they do from the educator. I think that teachers in physical class recognize far better today than ever before that connectedness in the classroom helps every student discover more. As well as now the Web reveals us exactly how to take maximum benefit of the advantages of linking to others-we can connect to any person else in the world if the two people have a Web link.

I'm fired up about just how elearning is altering the method we find out. If you're an amateur digital photographer or videographer who wishes to obtain even more out of your pictures and also online videos, enroll in Photoshop training today and also discover just how elearning can help you be all that you can be.

          Oil Majors See Shale As A Bridge To Renewables      Cache   Translate Page      
Oil majors are readying themselves for the energy transition by investing in shale and waiting for renewable technology to be economical, according to Rystad Energy. A recent review of 2019 capital budgets reveals that oil majors are the only group to increase shale expenditure from 2018 to 2019. Big companies such as Chevron and ExxonMobil recently announced plans to significantly ramp up production in prolific shale basins, such as the Permian Basin spanning Texas and New Mexico. “Oil majors are spending more dollars on shale in an effort…

<blockquote>A recent New York Magazine article sums up why: “At present, the 26 smallest states are home to roughly 17 percent of the U.S. population. Which is to say: The filibuster allows lawmakers elected by less than 17 percent of voters to exercise veto power over any and all laws. This is a monstrously anti-democratic institution with no parallel in any other advanced democracy.”</blockquote> Shit, hypothetically it's way worse than that. You need 41 senators to veto anything, and you can get that with: Iowa, Utah, Nevada, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kansas, New Mexico, Nebraska, West Virginia, Idaho, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Montana, Rhode Island, Delaware, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska, Vermont, Wyoming. ...and they combine for <strong>11.15</strong>% of the population.

Organizaciones tuiteras piteras, bórrense

Evidentemente fue un fracaso la primera protesta nacional contra López Obrador, que fue promovida en las Redes Sociales con el HT #10MarzoProtestaNacional. Acudió más gente -veinte veces más- a la marcha que se llevó a cabo en noviembre en la Ciudad de México en contra de la cancelación del NAIM, que no fue convocada por nadie en particular. Aquella vez se invitó a través de las mismas RS pero no lo hizo ninguna organización, sino que todos invitaron a todos y el resultado fue que acudieron unas 15 mil personas.

Quizás esa fue la diferencia. Que en aquella ocasión no invitó nadie en particular, que nadie se iba a llevar las palmas y el reconocimiento; y la protesta de este domingo la convocó ChalecosAmarillosMX, la organización que hizo el papel del cangrejo que encabeza el esfuerzo para salir de la cubeta, mientras los demás, que están abajo, lo jalan hacia abajo para que no salga. Dicen que así somos los mexicanos, si alguno quiere salir del hoyo los demás lo jalamos hacia abajo para impedírselo.

Porque a mí no me parece mal que haya convocado @ChalecosMx, por el contrario, me parece loable y mientras veía ayer los resultados de la convocatoria, me preguntaba dónde estaban #YoSoyLibre #MexicoLibre #NoSoyBot #100DiasdeMentiras #DespiertaMexico #SociedadCivilMexico #TenemosOtrosDatos #AsiNoLopez #CPT #GobiernoReprobado #YoTambien #SoyFifí @Mex_Libertario #AmloYoTeRepruebo #YoSoyChalecoAnarillo #HijasDeLaMx #ReaccionCiudadana #MexicoReflexivo #FrenteNacionalMx #PorElBienDeMexico #COTTONHEAD #MentirasDelAborto y tantos y tantos hashtageros más que son tan bravos en el Twitter y que se la pasan día y noche criticando, reprobando y condenando las acciones y estupideces de López Obrador.

Llegué a la conclusión de que son una de dos: o guerrilleros de internet, guerreros virtuales que son muy valientes para pelear desde su celular en la comodidad de su hogar, de su oficina, de su negocio o desde donde lo hagan; o que sólo buscan el protagonismo, “si convoca otro yo no voy”, o sea los cangrejos que están en el fondo de la cubeta, que los van a arrojar al agua hirviendo para que se vayan poniendo coloraditos mientras se cuecen para comérselos, y que jalan hacia abajo al que hace un esfuerzo para escapar de tan terrible final. ¿Dónde estaban los hashtageros tan combativos en Twitter al mediodía del domingo 10 de marzo? Mucho me temo que estaban en la comodidad de su hogar esperando que estuviera lista la carne asada mientras bebían cerveza y consultaban su Twitter o buscaban alguna noticia esperando ver que había fracasado #10MarzoProtesta Nacional.

Si fuera atinada la primera de las conclusiones a las que llegamos (dije que una de dos), no hay nada que hacer. Seguirán siendo guerreros virtuales, guerrilleros de internet, hasta que le colmen la paciencia a López Obrador y ordene éste cerrarles sus cuentas a todos y para siempre, es decir, hasta que les dure el juguetito de las Redes Sociales que es el único campo de batallas donde combaten con gran valor. Si fue lo segundo, sí fue sólo el protagonismo lo que (tal vez inconscientemente) les impidió salir a manifestarse, todavía tiene remedio, se puede corregir, bastará con que renunciemos a que cada quien tenga su hashtag, que nos olvidemos de crear organizaciones tuiteras piteras que no sirven para nada, y que sigamos señalando lo que está mal hecho en este gobierno de la 4T, pero como individuos, sin agregarnos a ninguna de esas organizaciones.

Que impulsemos todos, eso sí, algún HT con un fin muy específico, para protestar en contra de algo muy concreto, para presionar contra alguna medida en particular. Hay varios ejemplos ya de que el Viejito y su gobierno han tenido que recular en alguna medida, gracias a la presión de las RS. Sirven éstas, por supuesto que sirven, pero siempre y cuando las consideremos como algo útil para el bien de todo el país, no para que cada quién lleve agua al molino de su estúpida organización que llegado el momento no sirve para nada en realidad, como no sea para sabotear el esfuerzo de otros en su lucha contra la dictadura.

Y que el día en que se considere necesario, pertinente, o hasta urgente otra manifestación de protesta, la convoquemos todos y asistamos todos, sin protagonismos, si que nadie lleve agua a su molino. Eso, claro, mientras no surja algún liderazgo fuerte opositor, tan popular como el de López Obrador. Sin un líder debemos convocar todos y participar todos. Cero organizaciones de membrete que sólo combaten en las redes.

Esa es mi humilde, atenta y respetuosa propuesta: Organizaciones tuiteras piteras bórrense. Si no ayudan no estorben. En estos momentos, por causa de esas organizaciones que no apoyaron, todos los tuiteros antipeje somos la burla y el hazmerreír de la chairiza por el fracaso de la protesta nacional, lo cual no debe desanimarnos, la lucha continúa, pero que nos sirva de experiencia la división que provocaron tantos hashtageros que no participaron en una iniciativa noble, auténtica y de buena fe. Organizaciones tuiteras piteras, bórrense.

          Mar 27: El Sueño Americano / The American Dream      Cache   Translate Page      

The Library Gallery presents El Sueño Americano / The American Dream, an exhibition of works by Arizona-based artist Tom Kiefer featuring 59 photographs of everyday objects carried by migrants across the United States border with Mexico that were subsequently confiscated or forfeited at a Customs and Border Control facility in southern Arizona. Considered non-essential and thus discarded, these personal belongings — from gloves to rosaries and wallets to water bottles — were valued by their owners for their utilitarian, personal, or sentimental value. In Kiefer’s graphically striking photographs, these personal items serve as traces of individual human stories. “My intent,” says the artist, “is to explore the humanity of the migrants who risk their lives crossing through the desert and to create a personal connection for the viewer to a migrant and their hope for a better life.”

Born in Wichita, Kansas, fine art photographer Tom Kiefer was raised primarily in the Seattle area and worked in Los Angeles as a graphic designer. Kiefer moved to Ajo, Arizona in December 2001 to fully develop and concentrate his efforts in studying and photographing the urban and rural landscape and the cultural infrastructure. In 2015, Kiefer was included in LensCulture‘s top 50 emerging photographers and Photolucida‘s top 50 Critical Mass. His ongoing photographic series El Sueño Americano (The American Dream) has been featured in news publications nationally and internationally.

Also on view: Migration Stories: Selections from the UMBC Photography Collections

Drawn from UMBC’s collections, Migration Stories features twenty photographs that address human migration from a variety of perspectives. The installation explores the role of photography in shaping the public image of this issue and in conveying individual narratives of translocation and displacement.

Both exhibitions will be on display in the Library Gallery through May 23.

The presentation of this exhibition is supported by an arts program grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of Maryland and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support comes from the Libby Kuhn Endowment Fund, as well as individual contributions.

          Trump proposes $4.7 tn budget for 2020, to balance by 2034      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington: US President Donald Trump presented to the Congress a budget proposal for fiscal year 2020 that contained stiff spending cuts across non-defence federal agencies, and a hike in defence money.

According to the USD 4.7 trillion budget proposal, the Trump administration plans to cut domestic spending by 5 percent over the next year, or a nearly USD 30-billion-dollar, involving programs on education, health care and environment protection, among others, Xinhua news agency reported.

The budget blueprint proposes a USD 2.7 trillion spending cuts over the next decade, including USD 1.9 trillion in cuts to mandatory programmes, a senior administration official told a briefing on Monday. The official said the budget "will have more reductions in spending than any president in history has even proposed."

The budget plan foresees a USD 1.1 trillion deficit in 2019, 2020 and 2021, and a 1-trillion-dollar deficit in 2022. The administration predicts that the United States will return to budget balance in 2034.

The budget roadmap, designed for fiscal year 2020 that starts on Oct. 1, would increase defence spending by nearly 5 percent to USD 750 billion from USD 716 billion in fiscal year 2019.

It also seeks USD 8.6 billion for constructing additional sections of a wall along the US border with Mexico -- USD 5 billion in funding for the Department of Homeland Security and USD 3.6 billion for the Department of Defense's military construction fund.


          Reverend's Preview: Somos = All for LGBTQ Movies      Cache   Translate Page      

 

The Spanish word somos means “all” in English, so it seems a fitting new title for the San Diego Latino Film Festival’s LGBTQ showcase. Formerly known as Cine Gay, this year’s event will run March 14th-24th at AMC Fashion Valley and Digital Gym CINEMA North Park.


Now in its 26th year, the festival annually screens more than 160 films from Latin America, Spain, the United States, Mexico and other parts of the world in celebration of Latino film, art and culture. Also featured are after parties, filmmaker workshops and guest celebrities from the hottest TV shows and feature films. The Somos showcase is made possible by the San Diego Pride Festival, the Media Arts Center, and Filmout San Diego.

“LGBTQ cinema is transcendent by nature, oftentimes forcing spectators to look beyond their own experiences and inviting them to engage, reconcile and ultimately relate to issues initially outside of their understanding,” according to Moises Esparza, the festival’s curator. “It is our pleasure to continue our annual tradition of bringing the very best of LGBTQ Latino cinema” to San Diego.

Though primarily reflective of Latino/Latina experiences and locations, the themes of the various movies to be shown are universal. Screenings will be hosted by local drag superstar Franceska. Individual tickets and full festival passes can be purchased in advance here. One can also become a member of this non-profit organization and enjoy special perks here.

A fabulous LGBTQ Short Film Showcase will be presented on Sunday, March 17th at 3:30pm. These mini-movies will include: Broken Sunflower Hearts, Estigma, Infinite While It Lasts, Neither From Here, Nor There, Oasis, The Serenade and The night, unsheltered.

Feature films to be screened are:



Eva + Candela (from Colombia)
The professional ambition of two strong, independent women brings them together but it is also what ultimately pulls them apart. We witness their intense love transform amidst stages of infatuation, sensuality, love, comfort and, finally, routine.


Claudia tocada por la luna (Claudia touched by the moon) (Chile)
Having suffered discrimination throughout her life, Claudia, a trans-Chilean midwife, remembers the hardest and most difficult moments she had to face in order to live her identity. This documentary tells the history, struggle, and constant abuses that are part of a society that still excludes those it considers different.


Tinta Bruta (Hard Paint) (Brazil)
Set in Brazil’s southern city of Porto Alegre, the film focuses on a socially-repressed young man who only comes out of his shell during chatroom performances, when he strips and smears neon paints on his lithe body.


José (Guatemala)
The title character is 19 and lives with his mother in Guatemala, one of the world's most dangerous, religious, impoverished, and socially conservative countries. He spends his days on cramped buses and fighting traffic as he runs food to drivers. When he meets Luis, a migrant from the rural Caribbean coast, they pursue an unexpected and forbidden relationship that thrusts José into an unexpectedly passionate and self-reflective period in his life.


Retablo (Peru/Norway/Germany)
Segundo Paucar, a 14 year old boy, wants to become a master story-box maker just like his father to carry on the family legacy. On his way to a community celebration in the Andes, Segundo accidentally observes his father in a situation that shatters his whole world. Trapped in a chauvinistic environment, Segundo will try to deal in silence with all that is happening to him.


Bixa Travesty (Brazil)
The female trans body becomes a political means of expression in both public and private space. The black, transgender singer Linn da Quebrada deconstructs how alpha males conceive of themselves. Kiko Goifman and Claudia Priscilla's documentary portrays a charismatic artist who reflects on gender and has an extraordinary stage presence.


Las herederas (The Heiresses) (Paraguay/Germany/Brazil/Uruguay/Norway/France)
Chela and Chiquita, both descendants of wealthy families, have been together for over 30 years. Recently, their financial situation has worsened, and Chiquita is imprisoned on fraud charges. Chela, forced to face a new reality, begins to provide a local taxi service to a group of elderly, wealthy ladies for money. As she settles into her new life, Chela encounters the much younger Angy, forging a fresh and invigorating new connection. This drama was Paraguay’s submission to this year's Oscars.


Las Chuntá (The Chunta) (Mexico)
Once a year in a small town in Mexico, men transform into women and become the Chuntá. This documentary follows two gender-bending gangs of dancers as they face off in a struggle between queer identity and powerful traditions.

The San Diego Latino Film Festival will be presented from March 14th to the 24th. Click here for more information.

          Everything I Need To Know In Life, I Learned Trapped In A Maze With A Satyr.      Cache   Translate Page      
Pan's Labyrinth
2006, MexicoGuillermo Del Toro
35mm

It may not seem true, but at one point in time it was possible to tell a fairy tale without having a lobster or a warthog sing a stupid song about the circle of life every ten minutes. In order to distract the kids from the lack of Nathan Lane belting out show tunes , story-tellers resorted to other tactics to keep children interested, namely killing people in horrific ways. And Pan's Labyrinth is a throwback to those halcyon days of witches in the oven, frozen matchstick girls, and Goldilocks gang raped by bears. Okay, so that last bit may only be part of the fairy tale when I tell it to my kids, but you do get the idea.

Pan's Labyrinth, on the other hand, harkens back to the good old days, when children learned their lessons by having the shit scared out of them and their lives threatened. Guillermo Del Toro understands that if you spare the rod, you spoil the child, or more accurately, if you don't show the child a man getting his cheek slit open from the inside by a paring knife, they grow up as panty-waisted homosexuals. And that's what this movie is about: telling a story about princesses and underworld kingdoms while showing an anti-government guerilla getting tortured with an awl and a blacksmith's hammer. That will teach the little fucks the meaning of obedience. Make a scene in a McDonald's parking lot because you didn't get the right Happy Meal? I'll have your fucking fingers for that, and then I'll feed them to the god-awful Pale Man in Pan's Labyrinth, who has eyeballs in his hands and eats babies.

Ronald McDonald without his makeup.

In the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, Pan's Labyrinth isn't the decadent exercise in special effect wankery I had expected. Instead, it's actually a tragic tale of a young girl with a sick mother, a wicked army captain stepfather, and her overactive imagination. There's a faun, fairies, an enormous toad, and plenty of graphic violence, which helps separate the fantasy scenes from the reality ones. Or rather, the different types of violence distinguish the two worlds, with the graphic, realistic knife wounds and gunshots contrasting with the phantasmagorically baroque bloodshed of the fantasy sequences. It's enough to shock and interest adults and children alike, which is great, because it will help kids learn an important lesson, which is that if you speak Spanish, something will try to eat you. It's a great lesson that helps keep Mexicans out of my neighborhood, but frankly, since this film is so well constructed and appealing, it's a shame it doesn't teach children some other important life lessons.

1) Don't touch my action figures. I know they look like fun, especially the shelf dedicated to the various incarnations of Bruce Campbell, but there are small pieces that you might choke on. And believe me, if you fuck up my diorama of Jason giving it to Elvira up the pooper with the shaft of an axe, you will choke on them.

2) Yes, children like comic books. And yes, I like comic books. But no, I do not like children, and if the children I don't like like my comic books, they will find out what happens to people who do not respect strict alpha-numeric classification systems. And is that Nutella on my mint-condition copy of Swamp Thing #18 It is? Charming. Don't mix it with the blood you're about to lose, and I'll try not to get my semen on it when I'm done with you.

3) I know children are curious. But curiosity killed the cat, and throttled the little boy who snuck into my basement and discovered what I do to little girls.

The moral of the last story is that nosiness leads to nothing but trouble, both for the child, and for the adult who's trying to figure out how to get arm bones through the garbage disposa chutel. And that's the kind of fairy tale that, like Pan's Labyrinth, has something for both kids and adults.

Underage? Read a PG-13 review at The Comic Book Bin. Then come over to my house and let me watch you touch yourself. Girls and effeminate boys only need apply.

Big Risk - Little Outcome


In my years of surfing the internet, I have come across images that just make you think, “How did they manage to take that?” Or, “Would they really risk their life for one photo?” It’s almost unbelievable how high standards are for quality pictures nowadays, whether it be for a minor scientific bragging right or a few likes on Facebook. Nevertheless, people come in almost arms-length from death to capture these breath-taking photos.

The image you see above is hundreds of tonnes of radioactive corium clumped up at the bottom of the Chernobyl power-plant (commonly known as the Elephant’s Foot). It was said to have burned through the concrete floors and make its way to the basement of the structure shortly after the power-plant disaster in 1986. it went on to form an extreme radioactive hazard to anyone within eyesight of it Even just 30 seconds of exposure with the Elephant’s Foot will lead to dizziness and fatigue for weeks. Someone exposed for 300 seconds will have 2 days to live. Although this photo received a medium level of attention, do you really think it's worth the possible risks

No, this man is not on fire or being electrocuted. the radiation emitting from the Elephant's Foot is damaging the camera film and producing these ember coloured distortions in the photo. As you can see in the photo, the man at the back of the room is wearing a hardhat and a protective suit, but no visible face protection, which comes to show that the photographers were unaware of the dangers of the Elephant's Foot and the levels of radiation there in general, meaning the photographers unknowingly received heaps upon heaps of radiation for small scientific credit

"The World's Most Dangerous Road" (Commonly known as "Death Road") in La Paz, Mexico served as a major route for cars and trucks to pass over the mountains of La Paz up until 2007 when they constructed a much safer route for automobiles. Now, "Death Road" is mainly used by cyclists and tour buses. Since 2007 there have been a recorded 24 deaths from cyclists alone, Still, today, tour guides are hosting cyclist runs through this treacherous road. In this photo, you can see 2 people hanging over the side of the cliff, sort of as if they are taunting death. As if the road wasn't dangerous enough, the people in the image proceed to go all out and snap this picture, probably as a way to get the reader/viewer more interested in the content.


In conclusion, although these images are cool and breath-taking to see, people's quality standards sometimes reach frightening high levels to where they put their lives at risk.


          DOJ seeks $72M to hire more than 100 immigration judges, attorneys to help clear massive asylum backlog      Cache   Translate Page      
In its budget request for the upcoming fiscal year, the Justice Department said it needs over $72 million to fund the “stronger enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws,” according to materials released Monday, in an aggressive move intended to reduce the nation's backlog of asylum cases dramatically.
As part of his fiscal year 2020 budget plan totaling $4.7 trillion, which was unveiled Monday and faced immediate pushback in Congress, President Trump is also seeking billions more in funding for a border wall and controversial work requirements for Americans collecting a variety of welfare benefits.
The DOJ, for its part, said it's aimed to hire more than 100 new immigration judges and support staff, including hundreds of, “attorneys, judicial law clerks, legal assistants and administrative support staff, including interpreters.”

          Caravans of illegal aliens are at pace for nearly one million crossing border this year      Cache   Translate Page      
This is the first of a series on illegal immigration at the southern border, highlighting speeches delivered at a meeting Saturday in Deming, N.M. 



 Excerpts from Ed Ashurst's presentation as reported by Huey Freeman


Ashurst, 67, an Arizona native from a pioneer family who has lived on ranches near the border for more than 20 years, said one of the main problems behind the massive influx of illegal immigration is that Border Patrol agents are mostly stationed miles north of the border. “There are large sections of the international border, 60 to 70 miles in length, with no federal presence,” Ashurst said. This is an element of an “in-depth strategy” implemented by the Border Patrol, largely attributed to Richard Aguilar, who served as the acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the parent agency of Border Patrol, during the Obama administration. Aguilar was credited with publicly pronouncing that the border was not a specific line, but a “third country” between the United States and Mexico. “Have you ever been notified where the capital of this third country is, so I can send my taxes to it?” Ashurst said, sparking much laughter from a crowd which included many people living in the Borderland. In 2010, Lt. Col. (retired) Oliver North visited the ranch where Ashurst lives. He was working on documentaries called “War Stories.” He was accompanied by Chuck Holton, a freelance war correspondent and former U.S. Army Ranger who has worked with North on his films and books. When the caravans of illegal immigrants began forming last year in southern Mexico, Holton was sent there to report on them. Ashurst shared some of the information he received from Holton. The migrants are not being paid to join the caravans, but they are being supported and encouraged to join by opposition political elements within Honduras, who are supported by the Venezuelan government, Holton said in his report. Many of the people joining the caravans said they saw the advertising for it on social media and heard about it on local news in Honduras. The Mexican government, which is complicit in facilitating the passage of thousands of illegal immigrants, was passing out pamphlets in southern Mexico, telling the caravan riders of seven sanctuary cities which were the best places for them to go to receive free services. They are being organized by a consortium of left-wing pro-immigration groups including the U.N. International Organization for Migration, and the International Migration Institute, a (billionaire George) Soros-funded organization, said a report written by Holton. Although the Honduran government officially discourages the caravans, the nation will benefit by letting citizens migrate to the United States, because illegal immigrants here will send money back to that impoverished nation, Ashurst said. Money sent to Honduras from Hondurans in America accounts for 20 percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Probably hundreds or more of the illegal immigrants in these caravans have been deported at least once, which would make them felons, the Holton report said. Two of the illegal immigrants told the correspondent they had each been deported four times.

The vast majority of those who are joining the caravans from Honduras would not qualify for asylum in America if they applied through normal channels. Every migrant to whom Holton spoke said he was going to America for economic reasons. 

 Illegal immigrants who join the caravans are coached to check the box that they are seeking asylum for “reasonable fear of persecution or torture,” in order to receive a notice to appear at a hearing in the United States. Then almost all of them fail to appear in court for their hearings. Holton reported that caravans that were assembling in Tapachula, Mexico, included Somalis, Bangladeshis, Indians, Nepalese, Eritreans, Pakistanis and citizens from other nations. One group of citizens of India told Holton they flew into Mexico to take advantage of the caravans. There are “international observers” traveling with the caravans, who claim that they are impartial observers. But Holton wrote that he saw them intervene with Mexican officials on behalf of the caravans. One of the “observers” was a Mexican from a group called voces mesoamericanas, two were Spaniards from the Swedish Fellowship of Reconciliation.

On July 16, 1945, US Army detonated the first nuclear weapon in New Mexico's Jornada del Muerto desert. Codenamed Trinity, the test was part of the Manhattan Project. Three weeks later, the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. From the Atom Central page about Trinity:

The bomb was detonated, producing an intense flash and a fireball that expanded to 600 meters in two seconds. The explosive power was equivalent to 18.6 kilotons of TNT. It grew to a height of more than 12 kilometers, boiling up in the shape of a mushroom. Forty seconds later, the blast of air from the bomb reached the observation bunkers, along with a long and deafening roar of sound.

Aries - Siete de Espadas
Los mejores triunfos, aquellos que se recuerdan por siempre, son aquellos que ponen realmente a prueba nuestras capacidades. El triunfo fácil, que es aquel que conocemos antes de ejecutar la acción, carece de valor y no podemos considerarlo como tal. Por el contrario, es propio de la inmadurez.

Tauro - Tres de Bastos
Buen momento para pensar en las tareas y desafíos que te has propuesto para este año, sin prisa pero sin pausa. Debieras ir alcanzando, paso a paso, lo que definas como objetivos, siendo la perseverancia, tan propia de ti, relevante como factor de éxito.

Géminis - El Mago
Está todo a tu favor para conseguir aquello que quieres. Es el momento para avanzar en temas que hayan estado un tanto trabados y que necesites reactivarlos. Confía en tus capacidades y en tus medios, que en este periodo se verán realzados.

Cáncer - Siete de Oros
Puedes estar tranquila y confiada, los esfuerzos que has desplegado para conseguir tus fines, principalmente económicos, tendrán sus frutos que se verán a partir de ahora. No serán permanentes, a menos que hayas asimilado la fórmula y perseveres.

Leo - Diez de Oros
Período propicio en diversos ámbitos, todos ellos favorecidos y bien aspectados. Cito aquellos más relevantes: familia en general e hijos en particular, lo relacionado con transacciones referidas a bienes raíces, ver temas de salud que signifiquen restablecerla y por último, dinero que se recibe.

Virgo - Seis de Bastos
Nadie podrá objetar los triunfos que consigas y que te ubiquen en una posición relevante. Te los has ganado, son legítimos porque derivan de tu trabajo serio y responsable, única forma de conseguirlos y de poder usufructuar a plenitud todo aquello que trae como gratificación.

Libra - Dos de Espadas
Un antiguo refrán señala que “ante la duda, abstente”. No es el momento para decidir u optar, menos en temas trascendentes. Intenta, dentro de lo posible, aplazar la decisión por unos días, para así no correr riesgos innecesarios y quizás evitables.

Escorpio - Cuatro de Bastos
Semana en que objetivamente sentirás la grata sensación de seguridad en tu actividad profesional o laboral, lo que será como un círculo virtuoso que actúe en el ánimo positivo que necesitas para enfrentar el día a día en tu trabajo.

Sagitario - La Rueda de la Fortuna
Todos, hasta los más afortunados, necesitamos a veces una dosis de buena suerte para que liguen las cosas, y se consiga aquello que estamos deseando con tanto fervor. Tú no eres la excepción, a pesar de tu proverbial suerte que, en estos días, se presentará una vez más.

Capricornio - Siete de Copas
Ilusionarse más allá de la cuenta, en los temas del amor, solo sirve para alimentar la fantasía y la ensoñación. Es como transportarse a un mundo en que se pierde el sentido de la realidad. La pequeña ilusión sí ayuda a endulzar la vida cuando se controla.

Acuario - Diez de Bastos
Controla tu quehacer, tal vez no te des cuenta de la cantidad de trabajo, deberes y obligaciones autoimpuestas y obligatorias que debes asumir día a día y que te están restando disfrute a tu vida. Toma medidas para desligarte de aquello que otros pueden hacer por ellos mismos.

Piscis - Rey de Oros
La constancia, la perseverancia, y, por estos días de manera importante, la acción, es decir, tomar la iniciativa y salir a buscar resultados será la fórmula casi mágica para incrementar tus ingresos y disminuir de paso alguna deuda que pueda haber.



          The United City-States Of America, Mapped - An Experiment In Redividing The Country      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Nolan Gray via Medium.com,

From ancient Greece to Renaissance Italy to the Four Asian Tigers, city-states have always punched above their weight. They’ve driven culture forward, facilitated global commerce, and charged ahead of their nation-bound peers.

Indeed, cities  - and the metropolitan regions that orbit around them  -  make sense as a political and economic unit. The key services we depend on government to do, from building infrastructure to ensuring public safety, are mostly handled by cities. And contrary to earlier predictions, the forces of globalization and the rise of the information economy have only made cities more important as economic engines and innovation hubs. It’s no surprise, then, that cities — and their mayors — are increasingly finding their voices in a world previously dominated by nations and international entities.

Unfortunately, the way the United States is structured today undermines this trend by privileging states as the key political entity. State boundaries in these modern times are typically arbitrary and often no longer reflect any meaningful political, cultural, or economic reality. Some U.S. cities, both big and small, manage to straddle state borders (think Texarkana or Bristol) while others run right up to the state edge but sharply hug the border (think Cincinnati or St. Louis). And a number of states are inexplicably fragmented because their seat of government is very different from their most populous town (think New York City/Albany and Chicago/Springfield). This often results in excessive fragmentationunproductive competition, and a near total lack of regional land-use and transportation planning. We all suffer as a result.

Both to satisfy my own curiosity and set out a vision for what a city-oriented United States might look like, I decided to make a map that dispensed with the continental 48 states and instead divvied up the land into 100 city-states.

As a process-obsessed city planner, I started by listing the top 150 metropolitan statistical areas in the continental United States. This seemed like the natural base for any potential city-states as MSAs reflect economic integration. Next, I mixed in combined statistical areas, which factor together adjacent metro- and micropolitan areas. I cut the list to the top 100 units by population. (Congratulations to Lancaster, Pennsylvania — the smallest unit to make the cut!)

Then came the mapping. I used shapefiles provided by the Census to make “city-state cores” on a single map using GIS, a tool used for map making and spatial analysis. By using more data and selecting certain attributes, I assigned each county to a city-state core. To finish it up, I cleaned up awkward and nonsensical boundaries with some manual adjustment.

The final product was this map, and it led me to several takeaways:

The eastern United States is like medieval Europe.

As of 2010, the population center of the United States is somewhere in the middle of Missouri. It’s been moving westward, needless to say, but also south over time. This mostly jives with this map: The United States east of the Kansas-Missouri line is a dynamic hodgepodge of small, densely populated city-states. The economies and cultures of places like New York and Philadelphia, Charlotte and Greensboro, and Fort Wayne and South Bend will likely always be intimately intermingled. West of this line, excluding California and Texas, the United States is largely underpopulated, with cities like Denver, Omaha, and Boise playing an outsized role — economically and culturally — in their respective regions.

My home state of Kentucky is shattered.

Let’s face it: Kentucky is incoherent as a cultural-political entity. The Louisville metropolitan area and the northern Kentucky suburbs of Cincinnati are essentially southern reaches of the Rust Belt. The state’s east and southeast have more in common with West Virginia, including a shared Appalachian heritage. Western and southwestern Kentucky feel much more conventionally Southern. All of this is largely captured by how the state is divided up. Not accidentally, the only purely Kentucky city-state produced — Lexington — captures most of what Kentucky is best known for: University of Kentucky basketball, the first Kentucky Fried Chicken, most of the major bourbon distilleries, the Daniel Boone National Forest, and the state’s famous Bluegrass horse farm region.

Maine and Minnesota are basically already city-states.

Only two city-states capture the entirety of a current U.S. state: Portland, which captures Maine and parts of New Hampshire, and Minneapolis-St. Paul, which captures Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin, South Dakota, and three-quarters of North Dakota. Portland barely made the cut; in an actual fragmentation scenario, I could see most of Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine falling under a Boston city-state. Minneapolis-St. Paul, however, makes sense. Its influence sweeps across the northern Midwest, as evidenced in films like Fargo. Some western metro areas in New Mexico and Utah nearly made the cut, but their southern regions were nipped by El Paso and Las Vegas, respectively.

Some states would disappear entirely.

A handful of states in this new map are completely covered by the city-states of their former neighboring states. Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Vermont would all basically be gone. Delaware and Rhode Island both have great cities — Wilmington and Providence — but both would be unambiguously absorbed by their monolithic neighbors — Philadelphia and Boston, respectively. The upper Mountain West as well as New Hampshire and Vermont simply lack large cities.

City-states of tomorrow may boom at any time.

As states like Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota continue to experience explosive population growth, they will inevitably give rise to their own great cities. For all we know, Billings, Fargo, and Sioux Falls could emerge as urban powerhouses in the 21st century, not unlike nearby Minneapolis, Denver, and Salt Lake City did in the 20th century.

An odd oversight in our federal system is that it’s basically impossible for states to split, join, or shift around their borders. Outside of a few weird cases — such as West Virginia — basically all new states have come from newly settled land. As new city-states emerge in places like the Mountain West, how would they be incorporated into this system? Would the arrangement be capped at 100 city-states? Alternatively, could states combine as their economies and development slowly blends, as could very well happen with small city-states like Lancaster, Toledo, and Fresno? It’s a fun thought experiment.

*  *  *

In a time when we aren’t often drawing up new borders for established countries like the U.S., it’s interesting to think “what if.” What might be the political implications of a system like this? At the outset, a system of city-states could help to achieve economies of scale in providing local services like libraries and parks, saving taxpayers money while improving service quality.

But they could also overcome some of the prisoner’s dilemma problems associated with policies like housing, schools, and subsidies. In our current system of municipal fragmentation, it’s easy for NIMBYs (“Not in My Back Yard” campaigns) to block the construction of new housing in prospering areas and keep low- and moderate-income students out of high-quality schools districts. A unified city-state could overcome some of these issues, taking the broader perspective and equitably distributing the burdens and benefits of growth.

A city-state restructuring could also have deep implications for national politics. One of the key takeaways of the 2016 presidential election is the mounting urban-rural political divide, with voters in cities and the countryside growing increasingly disconnected and antagonistic toward one another. (At the bottom of this piece is a map of how the city-states likely would have voted.) Insomuch as a city-state scenario would bundle Americans based on broadly similar economic, social, cultural backgrounds, it could encourage both sides to seriously contend with with the needs and preferences of their neighbors.

Of course, at this stage, it’s all speculation. How would you have drawn city-state boundaries differently? What do you think would be the political implications?

Major Announcements last week:

  • RBA leave rates unchanged at 1.50% - statement was dovish
  • Australian quarterly GDP prints down at 0.2% from 0.5% expected
  • Canadian Trade Balance comes in much lower than markets expect at -4.6B from -2.4B
  • Bank of Canada leave the overnight cash rate unchanged at 1.75%
  • Australian m/m Retail Sales print 0.1% from 0.3% expected
  • ECB leave the overnight rate unchanged and introduce new bank loans to improve liquidity and growth
  • US Non-Farm Payroll prints at 20,000 from 180,000 expected
  • US Unemployment drops to 3.8% from 3.9%

NZD/USD

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) received a boost Friday after broad based declines in the US Dollar (USD) took the kiwi off the low of 0.6744 to close at 0.6800. This week the theme has continued with a mix of “risk on” sentiment based on Brexit positiveness before tomorrow’s vote and big dollar sellers. Fed chairman Powell said the Fed was in no hurry to change interest rates again and will watch how the slowing economy progresses. Brexit headlines will hold market focus over the remaining week, we suspect sentiment will change tomorrow and take the kiwi back below 0.6800.

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) continues to improve on the Australian Dollar (AUD) picking up 54 points last week to 0.9660 (1.0350) where it currently trades Tuesday lunch. Last week’s poor Aussie data continues to weigh on the currency in a week with no economic data printing. Financial markets are locked in a “risk on” mood as hopes of a Brexit deal improve heading into tonight’s parliamentary vote. The kiwi benefiting as investors start thinking about parity parties all over again. We can’t see the cross going below 0.9600 (1.0420) this week.

The British Pound (GBP) recovered off last week low of 0.5230 (1.9115) to push back to 0.5155 (1.9400) against the New Zealand Dollar (NZD). A last minute pre 12 March parliament vote is on the cards as Theresa May tries one more time. May is on route to meet European Commission President Juncker in Strasbourg. Analysts are suggesting negotiations have reached a point where there might be an agreement. Certainly with the Pound spiking overnight the sentiment barometer is high. UK m/m GDP prints tonight along with Manufacturing Production. News just in: PM May has supposedly secured legally binding changes to her Brexit deal that will strengthen and possibly improve her withdrawal agreement.

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) continued last week rally against the Canadian Dollar (CAD) extending to 0.9155 as risk improved. Equity markets are up on the day as well as Crude Oil to 56.86 but the NZD was preferred. The Bank of Canada downgraded earlier predictions that cash rates would track higher suggesting further uncertainty. Recent Canadian economic data releases have been poor. We expect price to track higher towards 0.9250 the 12 month high.

Optimism towards a Brexit deal being done has lifted risk sentiment in the markets with the Euro (EUR), New Zealand Dollar (NZD) cross continuing last week’s push from the open to 0.6080 (1.6450). Risk currencies have benefited, US equities have closed over 1% higher and the US Dollar was sold off further from Friday’s NFP figure. Also assisting the kiwi is the ECB’s downgraded inflation and growth forecast which could really bite. Long term we are heading towards resistance around 0.6130 (1.6320) of December 2018, any upside moves through this area and we are well into multi year highs. This pair has no scheduled data this week to release, direction will be guided by risk sentiment.

NZD/YEN

Monday saw the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) recover off last week low of 75.00 to regain losses against the Japanese Yen (JPY) back to 76.00 Tuesday. This week’s focus is the Bank of Japan (BoJ) interest rate statement. Comments around ramping up stimulus will be key in relation to achieving their 2.0% inflation target, Kuroda could signal more easing due to lower inflation and growth forecasts.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) closed the week on a high at 0.7040 against the US Dollar (USD), reversing off the weekly low of 0.7002 after risk sentiment improved. Risk markets continued into Monday with US equities posting gains of over 1.0% as the cross got through to 0.7080 Tuesday. The hangover from last week’s abysmal Non-Farm Payroll figure also continues to pressure the greenback along with Powell making comment that the Fed would try to influence the US Dollar lower through trade policy. The 50% retracement of the low of 0.7002 and high of 0.7200 could influence price towards 0.7100 before turning lower.

Last minute EU concessions have pushed buyers into the Pound as Theresa May travels to Strasbourg to meet with EU President Juncker.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) improved to 0.6285 (1.5910) against the Euro (EUR) from the open of 0.6265 (1.5950) extending last week’s gains and looks to 0.6320 (1.5820) early February resistance levels. All eyes this week will be firmly focused on a Brexit outcome which is lucky because the calendar is dry this week.

Australia

The RBA left rates unchanged at 1.50% with governor Lowe suggesting rates are consistent with GDP growth and inflation forecasts. Inflation remains low but stable and should pick up over the coming years. With all aspects of the economy showing weakening data the RBA seem to be upbeat that wage growth and low unemployment should improve in the coming months. Quarterly GDP released lower than expectations adding fuel to the depreciating AUD with Retail Sales also printing down at 0.1%. Trade Balance has surprised markets when figures showed an increase of nearly 2B to 4.55B after 2.85B was forecast. The only reason the Aussie has bounced off 0.7000 against the greenback is the buoyant Trade figure. Analysts are predicting a pick up in the Aussie towards the end of April based on seasonal import/export figures and solid iron ore values, I’m not so sure? It’s a quiet week on the calendar this week with only RBA assistant governor Debelle speaking today.

New Zealand

The New Zealand Dollar followed the Australian Dollar lower in the early stages of last week bottoming out against the US Dollar at 0.6744 before things changed. US (NFP) Non-Farm Payroll jobs data showed only a further 20,000 people were added to the workforce - the figure significantly down on the expected 180,000 number. Unemployment came in better than expected at 3.8% from 3.9% but the US Dollar traded softer allowing the kiwi to regain early week losses. Global Auction Milk prices have again posted another positive result of 3.3%, this is the seventh increase in prices since November 20th with farmgate prices set to improve over time. Another quiets week for data for the local currency suggesting outside influences will impact for the second week running.

United States

Larry Kudlow has made the suggestion that the ongoing Trump/China trade talks are making "headway" as mixed reports suggested the two parties were miles away from agreeing on a deal. China has suggested a compromise to the US Govt that would allow them to impose an enforcement provision if conditions were not met. Currently the US, based on the current deal conditions, have all the rights to charge China reimposed tariffs if they failed to meet with structural changes to its economy. China have highlighted this as unfair and wish to even the playing field with their own set of what if's penalties as they seek an equal rights trade deal. Erin Ennis senior vice president of the US/China business council has said "we could definitely see ourselves in yet another period of uncertainty" the longer differences continue. Trump is to set to demand another 8.6 Billion in wall funding to build additional sections of the wall along the Mexico/US border in a new set of new battles with congress. The US Dollar retreated late Friday after Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) printed down on expectations of 180,000 at 20,000 as markets sold the Dollar. US unemployment is still low coming in down at 3.8% from 3.9% as well as Average hourly earnings also printing positive at 0.4% from 0.3%. Equity markets closed lower but the kiwi and Aussie pushed up slightly off recent lows as news broke.

Europe

The ECB left the overnight rate unchanged and will look at stimulating the economy’s growth through 2019-2020 with a product called (TLTROs) Targeted Longer-Term Refinancing Operations as a potential method to inject liquidity to boost growth. The ECB cut its inflation and growth forecast and delayed any shift to rate hikes by at least three months with the current rate on hold until at least the end of this year. They have also introduced a bunch of cheapish long term loans (TLTRO) in the hope of loosening liquidity conditions later in 2019. Draghi said that the likelihood of a recession was low and the Eurozone growth outlook was still swayed to the downside. It’s a quiet week for tier one data with only less significant economic releases to print.

United Kingdom

The British Pound depreciated further heading into the weekly close and opened Monday on the defensive. Against the US Dollar it traded from around 1.3070 down to 1.2965 based on the EU rejecting May's latest offer. The EU made a fresh offer of letting Britain exit the backstop but keeping Northern Ireland in it which was not acceptable to May. The parliament vote which takes place on Tuesday 12th March (Wednesday morning in NZT) is expected to be dreadful for May. Several members of cabinet have discussed whether May's time is coming to an end if the vote is a "no" Tuesday. The EU are in the driver's seat as they can either deny the UK an extension and ask them to leave or demand an increase of the "divorce payment" as a trade off for offering an extension of time for article 50. One possible scenario which could play out if support grows for the UK to not leave the EU if the current deal is scrapped, the EU could offer an extension and the UK have another referendum which would turn out "no leave". This week the Pound will be by far the most volatile currency, expect wild swings as news hits the wires. In breaking news, the Pound outperformed Tuesday morning travelling to 1.3280 on hopes a last gasp deal on Brexit can be agreed. Theresa May is on her way to Strasbourg where she will meet European Commission President Juncker.

Japan

The Japanese Yen closed the week outperforming its rivals on the main currency board after risk aversion drove market sentiment and rallied the JPY. Turning a corner after five weeks of losses against the US Dollar the Yen remained in control. Bouncing from 112.13 the pair closed the week around 110.90 as the ECB's decision to launch another round of TLTRO's sent markets in search of safety. Chinese trade figures were also a risk factor with Chinese exports falling more than 20% in February. The trade surplus m/m came to 4.12B much weaker than the 26.3B markets were expecting. Japan's GDP grew by more than 1.90% for the last quarter of 2018 coming in ahead of predictions of 1.80%. The economic watchers survey also supported the Yen releasing at 47.5 for the month of February after 45.6 was expected. This weeks (BoJ) Bank of Japan policy rate is announced on Friday and will remain unchanged.

Canada

Overnight Canada entered DST (daylight saving time) with clocks moved forward 1 hour. The Bank of Canada maintained its 1.75% rate last week saying the global slowdown has been worse than predicted and widespread than the bank had forecast especially in the fourth quarter of 2018. Inflation is forecast to be a little less than 2.0% for most of 2019 but given the pressures on lower Oil prices CPI has eased to 1.4% in January. The BoC are uncertain about future timing of rate increases and will watch developments in Oil markets, household spending and US trade policy. The Canadian Dollar sank across the board and travelled to a yearly low against the greenback. The US Non-Farm Payroll figure Friday was not as rosy as predicted putting the US Dollar under pressure and taking the CAD off its lows. A quiet week for Canadian data on the docket with only Manufacturing Sales to print.

          Se prohíbe volar al Boeing 737 MAX: aerolíneas y la Unión Europea cierran su espacio aéreo ante la falta de seguridad (actualizado)      Cache   Translate Page      

Se prohíbe volar al Boeing 737 MAX: aerolíneas y la Unión Europea cierran su espacio aéreo ante la falta de seguridad (actualizado)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Actualización: Es oficial, la Agencia Europea de Seguridad Aérea (EASA) está cerrando el espacio aéreo y suspendiendo todas las operaciones del Boeing 737 Max en Europa, esto hasta que lleguen los resultados de la investigación del accidente. Al final del post encontrarán el comunicado completo.

El avión Boeing 737 Max 8 está encendiendo las alarmas en la aviación comercial. El pasado 10 de marzo, el vuelo ET-302 se estrelló seis minutos después de haber despegado. Mientras que el pasado mes de octubre, un problema similar le ocurrió al mismo modelo de avión.

El Boeing 737 Max es un modelo nuevo y según la propia compañía, tiene distribuidos 4.754 pedidos por todo el mundo, convirtiéndolo en uno de los aviones que más rápido se han vendido en la historia de Boeing. Una popularidad que va camino de convertirse en un auténtico problema, ya que diversas administraciones han emitido un comunicado de emergencia alertando de los riesgos de seguridad. Una alerta que ha llevado a aerolíneas y países a suspender temporalmente el uso del nuevo modelo de avión de Boeing.

Aerolíneas y países suspenden el espacio aéreo para los Boeing 737 MAX

Boeing

Múltiples aerolíneas como Aeroméxico o Gol optaron durante el día de ayer por no despegar estos modelos, una decisión que hoy también ha tomado una aerolínea europea como es Norwegian. Una decisión que ya avisan que provocará cancelaciones y retrasos.

Según leemos en ElPaís, un total de 26 aerolíneas han decidido suspender temporales el uso de los aviones Boeing 737 MAX 8 tras el accidente de Etiopía. Sin embargo, por el momento otras 22 compañías han decidido seguir operando con él. Según el WSJ, actualmente hay registrado 370 aviones de este modelo y más del 40% estaría en tierra.

Ante la situación, países europeos como Irlanda, Holanda, Francia, Reino Unido o Alemania han decidido dar un paso más y cerrar su espacio aéreo a los modelos Boeing 737 Max. Una medida de precaución que también han tomado países como China, Australia, Malasia, Singapur, Omán, Corea del Sur, Mongolia e Indonesia después que sus correspondientes agencias de aviación lo recomendaran.

En el caso de España, el Gobierno ha delegado en la Unión Europea la paralización del modelo 737 MAX 8 de Boeing. España no puede imponer restricciones a aeronaves que disponen del certificado emitido por la EASA y se remite a ella a la hora de tomar una decisión. Según informa RNE, esta tarde se tomará una decisión de acuerdo a las indicaciones de la Agencia Europea de Seguridad Aérea.

Boeing anuncia una actualización para mejorar su sistema MCAS

Air Current Explicación del MCAS, por The Air Current.

Por el momento, Boeing ha confirmado que está trabajando con las autoridades para investigar la causa de los accidentes y está monitorizando de cerca la situación, aunque asegura que su avión 737 Max es seguro.

La multinacional norteamericana Boeing ha anunciado además una actualización de software para toda su flota completa de modelos 737 Max 8. Desde los últimos meses, Boeing ha desarrollado un software de control para el 737 Max diseñado para hacer el vuelo todavía más seguro.

Esta actualización incluye mejoras en el 'Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System' (MCAS), la pantalla de los pilotos, las operaciones manuales y el entrenamiento de la tripulación. El nuevo sistema de control de vuelo incorporará nuevos avisos de ángulos de ataque (AOA), limitará los comandos de ajuste del estabilizador en respuesta a un ángulo erróneo de lectura de ataque y proporcionará un límite al comando del estabilizador para retener la autoridad del elevador.

Boeing ha trabajado junto a la Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) para el desarrollo, la planificación y la certificación de este software que será actualizado durante las próximas semanas y deberá estar antes del mes de abril. Eso sí, desde la propia Boeing también puntualizan que la FAA no ha requerido ninguna acción en este momento, por lo que la actual directiva AD2018-23.51 sigue siendo apropiada.

Una directiva de aeronavegabilidad de emergencia publicada a los pocos días del accidente de octubre donde se recordaba a los pilotos el procedimiento a seguir en caso de fallo del MCAS, el sistema de ajuste automático del timón de profundidad. Pero el problema vendría en que los pilotos del 737 MAX no habrían recibido ni la formación adecuada para este sistema, ni los manuales actualizados.

Boeing mantiene la calma y espera a la decisión de la FAA

En respuesta a la decisión de algunos países de cerrar su espacio aéreo, Boeing ha emitido un comunicado de última hora donde informa que entiende las decisiones tomadas y continuarán ofreciendo la información necesaria. Aunque se reafirma en que la FAA todavía no ha requerido ninguna acción.

La EASA suspende las operaciones del 737 MAX en toda Europa

A continuación, el comunicado de la EASA:

"Tras el trágico accidente del vuelo ET302 de Ethiopian Airlines con un Boeing 737 MAX 8, la Agencia Europea de Seguridad Aérea (EASA) está tomando todas las medidas necesarias para garantizar la seguridad de los pasajeros.

Como medida de precaución, la EASA ha publicado hoy una Directiva de Aeronavegabilidad, en vigor a partir de las 19:00 UTC, por la que se suspenden todas las operaciones de vuelo de todos los aviones Boeing Modelo 737-8 MAX y 737-9 MAX en Europa. Además, la AESA ha publicado una Directiva de seguridad, que entrará en vigor a partir de las 19:00 horas UTC, por la que se suspenden todos los vuelos comerciales efectuados por operadores de terceros países hacia, dentro o fuera de la UE de los modelos mencionados.

La investigación del accidente está a cargo de las autoridades etíopes con el apoyo de la Junta Nacional de Seguridad del Transporte, ya que la aeronave fue diseñada y construida en los Estados Unidos. La AESA ha ofrecido su ayuda para apoyar la investigación del accidente.

La AESA analiza continuamente los datos a medida que están disponibles. La investigación del accidente está actualmente en curso, y es demasiado pronto para sacar conclusiones sobre la causa del accidente."

Delta Boeing 777 200LR in flight_0

  • From now until April 3, Delta's three main credit cards are offering their highest-ever new-cardholder bonuses.
  • Even if you've had one of these cards before, you can still open a different card.
  • We break down the differences between the three cards — read on to see which is best for you.
  • You can also read our guide to the best credit cards of 2019 overall.

One of the fastest ways to get a ton of frequent-flyer miles or rewards points quickly is to open a credit card and earn its new member bonus. This is arguably the best way to boost your stock of points and get you closer to a big award trip.

There are two key things to keep in mind when opening a card for the welcome bonus.

The first is whether an offer on a card is the highest you expect to be able to earn.

The second is whether the card offers enough ongoing value for it to be worth keeping after the first year.

For anyone who flies Delta Air Lines — even occasionally — right now is an ideal time to open a new card because both of those considerations are met.

Until April 3, Delta's three main consumer credit cards are offering their highest-ever publicly available welcome offers.

Plus, the three cards each offer a ton of ongoing value, whether you're a casual flyer or a hard-core Delta loyalist.

Read on to learn more about the three cards, and see which one is best for you.

Best for the casual Delta flyer: The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

Welcome offer: 60,000 Delta SkyMiles when you spend $2,000 in the first three months. Plus, get a $50 statement credit when you make any Delta purchase in the first three months.

The Gold Delta SkyMiles card is the best of the three for the casual Delta flyer, someone who finds themself on the airline a couple of times a year, but doesn't fly regularly enough to use the heftier cards' perks (more on that later).

One of the biggest perks: The card offers a free first checked bag for the cardholder and up to eight people on the same reservation. Delta charges $30 each way for a checked bag, so this can save up to $60 per person on a round-trip itinerary.

Cardholders and travel companions also get Zone 1 priority boarding. This means you can board the plane sooner, giving you plenty of time to settle into your seat or find overhead space for any carry-on luggage. Zone 1 is after most Delta elite frequent flyers and extra-legroom passengers, but is usually within the first half of passengers to board.

Other perks include discounted day passes to Delta Sky Club airport lounges — $29 per day pass — as well as a 20% discount on in-flight purchases (in the form of a statement credit), such as food or drinks, and no foreign transaction fees.

Like the other Delta cards, the Gold SkyMiles card earns 2x Delta SkyMiles on eligible Delta purchases, and 1x mile on everything else.

The Gold Delta card has an annual fee of $95, which is waived the first year. This is a great value considering the perks, not to mention the welcome bonus — 60,000 SkyMiles is more than enough for two round-trip flights across the United States, and is just shy of enough for a round-trip to Europe. The card normally offers 30,000 SkyMiles.

Best for more regular flyers: The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

Welcome offer: 75,000 Delta SkyMiles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you spend $3,000 in the first three months. Plus, get a $100 statement credit when you make any Delta purchase in the first three months.

If you fly somewhat regularly, the Platinum Delta SkyMiles card is a better option, thanks to an often-overlooked benefit that can completely cover the $195 annual fee each year.

The Platinum Delta card has most of the same perks as the Gold version, like priority boarding, free checked bags, 2x SkyMiles on Delta purchases and discounted Sky Club access.

However, the Platinum Delta comes with a huge perk — it's so useful that I'm planning on keeping my card indefinitely.

After your first year with the card, you'll get an annual domestic companion pass each year at your card-member anniversary. A Delta companion pass is essentially a buy-one-get-one-free coupon. When you book an economy-class flight for yourself anywhere within the continental US, you can get a second ticket for free, other than minimal taxes and fees.

The companion pass completely blows away the annual fee for me, which is $195 and isn't waived the first year. My wife and I fly domestically at least a few times a year, whether it's to visit family or friends, or to go on vacation. So I save my companion pass until we're taking a flight together that costs more than $195 each. You can read more about the Delta companion pass benefit here.

While you don't get a companion pass the first year, the 75,000 SkyMiles from the welcome offer more than outweigh the annual fee — that's enough to fly from the US to just about anywhere in Europe round-trip.

The MQMs in the welcome bonus can be a boost for anyone looking to earn or keep Delta Medallion frequent-flyer status. Plus, each year that you spend $25,000 or more on the card, you earn a bonus 10,000 SkyMiles, 10,000 MQMs, and have the Medallion Qualifying Dollar (MQD) requirement for most elite status levels waived.

When you have Medallion status, you can enjoy things like free upgrades to first class or extra-legroom seats whenever you fly, subject to availability.

Best for Delta Medallion frequent flyers: The Delta Reserve® Credit Card from American Express

Welcome offer: 75,000 Delta SkyMiles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you spend $5,000 in the first three months. 

The Delta Reserve card has a higher, $450 annual fee, but it has a few additional perks that can make it worthwhile for some frequent flyers. 

Like the Platinum SkyMiles card, it offers a domestic companion pass. However, that pass can be used for first-class tickets, not just economy.

Additionally, the Delta Reserve offers full access to Delta Sky Club airport lounges whenever the cardholder is flying with Delta (the Gold and Platinum SkyMiles cards offer discounts on single-access Sky Club passes).

The Reserve has one other major perk, which can be crucial for travelers who hold Delta Medallion elite status.

Delta Medallion members are eligible for complimentary, space-available upgrades to first class and Delta One on flights within the US and the region, including Mexico and Central America, and extra-legroom seats on international flights.

Upgrades clear in hierarchical order based on a number of factors, including each passenger's Medallion status level, the original fare class they booked, and a few other factors. The first tiebreaker for people with the same Medallion level and fare class: whether they hold the Delta Reserve card. Reserve cardholders will be prioritized over those without it. If there's only one seat left and two members are still tied and both have the Reserve, it continues down the list of tiebreakers.

For travelers who fly a lot and frequently find themselves one or two upgrade-list spots away from getting that first-class seat, holding the Reserve can be extremely valuable.

          'Remain In Mexico' Immigration Policy Expands, But Slowly       Cache   Translate Page

Joel Rose | NPR

The Trump administration is expanding a hard-line immigration policy that forces asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico for their assigned court dates in the U.S.

The program, which is officially known as the "Migrant Protection Protocols," began earlier this year at the San Ysidro border crossing in San Diego. Homeland Security officials say it expanded this week to include the border crossing in Calexico, Calif., and areas between official ports of entry in the Border Patrol's San Diego sector.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced the program, initially dubbed "Remain in Mexico," in December. Administration officials say it's intended to deter the growing number of migrants fleeing the Northern Triangle nations of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras to seek asylum in U.S. immigration courts.

The program was quickly challenged in federal court by immigrant rights advocates. They say it forces migrants to wait in dangerous conditions in Mexican border towns, and deprives them of access to lawyers to help prepare their asylum cases.

For now, the vast majority of asylum-seekers are still allowed to remain in the U.S. pending their immigration court appearances.

So far, only 240 migrants have been returned to Mexico under the program, according to immigration officials. That's a small fraction of the 76,000 migrants who crossed the southern border in February — one of the busiest months for the Border Patrol in a decade.

"We are starting small to see how this process works," said a DHS official during a background briefing with reporters today. "To make sure we have the coordination down, and a process that works."

There is no formal agreement with the Mexican government concerning the Migrant Protection Protocols, according to DHS. But U.S. officials insist there is coordination between authorities in the two countries.

"We work very closely with Mexican authorities," a DHS official said. "We're not going to open a location that Mexican authorities aren't ready to handle."

A report earlier this month said the "Remain in Mexico" policy could soon expand to El Paso, Texas. DHS officials say they're working to further expand the program, did not indicate when or where that would happen.

Meanwhile, immigrant rights' advocates are going to court later this month in hopes of shutting the program down altogether. U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco set a hearing for March 22 on their motion for a preliminary injunction.

The case was brought on behalf of asylum-seekers and non-profit organizations that work with them by the American Civil Liberties Union, The Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies.

          China, Ethiopia, Indonesia, European Union ground Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft after crash      Cache   Translate Page      

Ethiopian Airlines(LONDON) -- A growing list of airline carriers and aviation regulators around the world are grounding fleets of the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft in the wake of a crash of the same model that killed all 157 people on board.

A new Boeing 737 Max 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines went down in clear weather on Sunday morning just minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport in Ethiopia's capital. The American-made jet was headed to Nairobi, Kenya.

A total of 149 passengers and 8 crew members were believed to be on board Flight 302, according to Ethiopian Airlines.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) of the United States said it's sending a team of four to assist in the probe. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said it plans to join the NTSB in assisting Ethiopian authorities.

Ethiopian Airlines said two black boxes -- the digital flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder -- have been recovered from the wreckage in the town of Bishoftu, southeast of Addis Ababa.

Another 737 Max 8 crashed into the Java Sea minutes after takeoff from Indonesia on Oct. 29, killing all 189 people on board.

Ethiopian Airlines, the flag carrier of the East African nation, decided to ground its remaining Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft "until further notice."

"Although we don't yet know the cause of the accident, we had to decide to ground the particular fleet as extra safety precaution," the state-owned airline said in a statement early Monday.

Airlines in other countries also have announced the grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8 fleets, including Cayman Airways, the flag carrier airline of the Cayman Islands, South Africa-based airline Comair, Aeromexico, Mexico's flag carrier airline, Aerolineas Argentinas, Argentina's largest airline and flag carrier, Gol, Brazil's largest airline, Royal Air Maroc, Morocco's national carrier, South Korean airline Eastar Jet, Turkish Airlines, Turkey's national flag carrier airline, and Norwegian Air Shuttle, Norway's largest airline.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency on Tuesday suspended all flight operations of Boeing 737 Max 8 and 737 Max 9 aircraft models from flying into or out of Europe, "as a precautionary measure," amid the ongoing investigation into Sunday's crash.

A number of nations had already issued restrictions on the embattled jetliner.

China's aviation regulator has ordered all Chinese airlines to suspend operations of the Boeing 737 Max 8, nearly 96 jets. Using those planes won't resume until "confirming the relevant measures to effectively ensure flight safety," the Civil Aviation Administration of China said in a statement Monday.

Indonesia has temporarily grounded its Boeing 737 Max 8 fleet while aircraft inspections are carried out to ensure "flight-worthy conditions." The country's Directorate General of Civil Aviation has been supervising operations of the 737 Max 8 since the crash in October.

Singapore's aviation regulator has indefinitely banned all Boeing 737 Max aircraft from flying into and out of the country. The suspension affects five airlines, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore said in a statement Tuesday.

Australia has temporarily suspended operations of Boeing 737 Max planes to or from the country. While no Australian airlines operate these aircraft, two foreign airlines fly them to the country, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia said in a statement Tuesday.

Malaysia has also suspended operations of Boeing 737 Max 8 jets flying to or from the country "until further notice."

Oman's aviation regulator has indefinitely banned Boeing 737 Max aircraft from flying into and out of the nation.

The United Kingdom has ordered a suspension on any Boeing 737 Max 8 commercial passenger flights arriving, departing or overlying the country's airspace. The temporary ban is "a precautionary measure," the U.K. Civil Aviation Authoritiy said in a statement Tuesday.

The Irish Aviation Authority has temporarily suspended the entry and exit of all Boeing 737 Max aircraft from Ireland's airspace.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration issued a "continued airworthiness notification to the international community" on Monday evening for Boeing 737 Max 8 operators, signaling confidence in the jetliner.

The Boeing Company said it currently "does not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators" of its 737 Max 8 model.

"We have engaged our customers and regulators on concerns they may have -- and would refer you to them to discuss their operations and decisions," a Boeing spokesperson told ABC News in a statement Monday morning. "Safety is our number one priority and we are taking every measure to fully understand all aspects of this accident, working closely with the investigating team and all regulatory authorities involved. The investigation is in its early stages, but at this point, based on the information available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators."

In a letter sent to employees later Monday, Boeing's president, chairman and CEO said "the Max family has completed hundreds of thousands of flights safely. We are confident in the safety of the 737 Max."

The Chicago-based aircraft manufacturer has supplied more than 370 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft to 47 airlines since the model entered service in May 2017. Seventy-two of them are currently flying in the United States, according to Boeing.

At least eight Americans were among those killed. The U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia said it is "working to determine their identities."

ABC News has confirmed with family members that Melvin and Bennett Riffel from Redding, California, Antoine Lewis from Matteson, Illinois, and Matt Vecere, a California resident originally from New Jersey, died in the plane crash.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said at least 21 U.N. staff were aboard the doomed flight.

"Our colleagues were women and men -- junior professionals and seasoned officials — hailing from all corners of the globe and with a wide array of expertise," Guterres said Monday. "They all had one thing in common -- a spirit to serve the people of the world and to make it a better place for us all."

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed declared Monday a national day of mourning.

Boeing said it was "deeply saddened" by the crash.

"We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the families and loved ones of the passengers and crew on board and stand ready to support the Ethiopian Airlines team," the company said in a statement Sunday. "A Boeing technical team will be travelling to the crash site to provide technical assistance under the direction of the Ethiopia Accident Investigation Bureau and U.S. National Transportation Safety Board."

          Dozens Of Countries Ground Boeing's 737 Max 8 Following Deadly Crash In Ethiopia       Cache   Translate Page      

Airline regulators across the globe are grounding Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, joining an ever expanding list of countries banning the plane from their airspace. This comes in the wake of Sunday's deadly plane crash in Ethiopia that killed all 157 people on board. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

The latest move came Tuesday from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) when it announced a suspension of two Boeing 737 Max models in all flights in the European bloc.

The wave of bans follows the Civil Aviation Administration of China's decision on Monday to order the country's airlines to suspend all commercial operations of their Boeing 737 Max 8 jets.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration does not plan to ground the jets in the United States but is facing growing pressure to do so.

The FAA announced Monday that it would require a series of design changes for the Boeing 737 Max fleet.

In the U.S., Southwest Airlines uses a fleet of 34 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft and is not planning any change in service. Likewise, American Airlines, which operates 24 of the planes, is not planning to ground them.

The full list of countries and airlines that have announced a ban is below:

—Argentina (Aerolíneas Argentinas)
—Australia
—Austria
—Belgium
—Brazil (GOL Linhas Aéreas)
—Cayman Islands (Cayman Airways)
—China
—Ethiopia
—EASA member states

          Cảnh sát Peru triệt phá đường dây buôn bán hơn 2,1 tấn cocaine      Cache   Translate Page      

Theo phóng viên TTXVN tại La Habana, các cơ quan chức năng của Peru ngày 12/3 đã ra thông báo về việc thu giữ 2,134 tấn cocaine, với trị giá lên tới 61 triệu USD, trong chiến dịch triệt phá một đường dây ma túy xuyên quốc gia vừa kết thúc trước đó.

Trong một cuộc họp báo chính thức, Tổng Tư lệnh Cảnh sát quốc gia Peru, José Luis Lavalle cho biết băng đảng tội phạm buôn bán ma túy, có tên là “Simbad,” gồm các thành viên mang quốc tịch Peru và Mexico, hoạt động tại khu vực phía Bắc nước này.

Sau nhiều ngày triển khai công tác tình báo, cảnh sát và truy đuổi, lượng ma túy khổng lồ đã được tìm thấy trong một chiếc xe téc tại tỉnh Piura, cách thủ đô Lima 972km về phía Bắc.

Số ma túy này được ngụy trang và chia thành các khối hình chữ nhật.

Trong chiến dịch trên, cảnh sát Peru cũng đã bắt giữ 7 thành viên của “Simbad”, từ 36 tới 51 tuổi, và theo kết quả điều tra ban đầu, tổ chức tội phạm này đã thu mua ma túy từ vùng thung lũng VRAEM – nơi được coi là “vựa coca” của Peru – và có liên hệ với các băng đảng “đồng nghiệp” tại Colombia và Mexico để chuyển ma túy vào Mỹ theo đường biển./.

ME: The Catholic Church has a pernicious pedophilia problem related to sexism and the rules governing priest recruitment. Pedophilia in the priesthood is due to a defective theology that is very resistant to change, and the hierarchy protects both the theory and the practice. It’s a broken culture that ignores this stuff.

INTERNET: I’m Catholic, and I am offended. You are a horrible person. What religion are you?

INTERNET: Are you calling me a pedophile?

INTERNET: Are you calling all Catholics pedophiles?

INTERNET: I’m a pedophile, but I’m not a priest. Your argument fails.

INTERNET: Why are you sex-shaming pedophiles? They are who they are; they didn’t ask to be pedophiles. It’s either a genetic thing, or else it’s childhood stuff. Either way, they can’t help it.

INTERNET: Why are you attacking priests? I’m a priest and I’m not a pedophile.

INTERNET: Let he who has not done something perverted cast the first stone.

INTERNET: Do you even go to church? If you did you would know most priests aren’t pedophiles.

INTERNET: I don’t see how this has anything to do with the church or how they select priests.

INTERNET: Imagine that you get called by God and take a vow of poverty to become a priest, and then someone suggests that the priesthood has a pedophilia problem. It’s outrageous.

INTERNET: When I was a choir boy I was never diddled by a priest. I think this whole thing is made up by people looking for attention and money.

INTERNET: It’s not the Vatican’s fault. The local churches have to patrol themselves. I blame the congregations and the parents for not doing their job.

INTERNET: I’ve read the Bible, and there’s nothing in there that requires pedophilia, so I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

INTERNET: So what if a priest does have sex with kids? At least the kids are getting attention. Get over it.

INTERNET: Pedophiles can’t help it; they’re born that way. You are engaged in pedophile-shaming and I hope you get hit by a truck driven by a pedophile.

INTERNET: Not all pedophiles are fucking little boys.

INTERNET: It’s not always rape. Don’t confuse rape and having sex with children.

INTERNET: You’re a bigot. In other cultures and eras this is all normal. You’re very narrow minded. I no longer like you.

INTERNET: The Church is looking into this pedophilia stuff. Give it time. It’s complicated. We wouldn’t want to throw out the baby with the bath water.

INTERNET: What about nuns hitting kids? That’s way worse, and way more common.

INTERNET: I’m a priest and do more than fuck children; I also do woodwork. Don’t pigeonhole all priests. You suck.

INTERNET: What about the nun-raping? Are you saying that’s OK?

INTERNET: Why are you opposed to gays? Are you homophobic? You are heterosexual scum.

INTERNET: Why are you opposed to sex?

INTERNET: This an American problem.

INTERNET: This also happens in Ireland, Canada, France, Australia, England, Mexico.... so why focus on Philadelphia?

INTERNET: I blame the Victorians.

INTERNET: Why are you obsessed with pedophiles? Are you a pedophile?

INTERNET: It’s not really sex the way we do it in our club which has standards set out by the priests. It’s OK the way we do it.

INTERNET: Pedophilia has a long history and the following great people in history were pedophiles. Do you even know history?

INTERNET: It’s only pedophilia when the child is under 12. From 12-18 it’s “youth courting.”

INTERNET: You don’t know anything about youth courting. How many teenagers have you fucked?

INTERNET: You don’t understand; these older men are helping gay youth explore their sexuality. That’s a good thing.

INTERNET: People are born pedophiles, and God doesn’t make junk. We need to accept pedophilia as part of the great wobble of what people can be. No shame and no blame. You are very backward in your thinking.

INTERNET: Why listen to some cisgender blogger who is hating on Catholics?

INTERNET: Love is love, and haters gonna hate.

INTERNET: These priests are old. What else do you expect them to do?

INTERNET: Most pedophiles aren’t Catholics or priests. Your argument is nonsense.

INTERNET: If a 7-year old can pay taxes, and 12-year old can shoot a shotgun, and 14-year old can work, and a 15-year old can drive, then they can all consent to have sex.

INTERNET: You need a little pedophilia to maintain the priesthood. How else are we going to get priests?

INTERNET: It’s not just the Catholics; the Muslims are worse. And the Evangelicals.

INTERNET: Catholic priests are no more likely to be pedophiles than anyone else. Stop Catholic bashing.

INTERNET: How come you’re not focusing on all the good work done by priests who aren’t pedophiles? Let’s lift them up.

INTERNET: How come a 70-year old man can marry a 35-year old woman and that’s OK, but it’s not OK for that same man to have sex with her when he’s 47 and she’s 12? This stuff seems completely arbitrary.

INTERNET: I’m from Pakistan where child brides are part of our heritage. Your concerns are a paternalistic kind of imperialism. Child marriage has been going on for a thousand years in my country, and it hasn’t hurt us.

INTERNET: Jeffrey Epstein was a massive pedophile and he was Jewish. So your argument fails.

          Mexican Filmmakers are Having a Historic Decade at the Oscars      Cache   Translate Page      

Image Courtesy of Slate

“Roma” may have earned Mexico its first Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, but the country has been dominating the Best Director race at the Academy Awards for much of the last decade. Cuarón’s victory continued an unprecedented run of wins for Mexican filmmakers. In the last six years, the Oscar for Best Director has gone to a Mexican filmmaker five times: Cuarón in 2014 for “Gravity,” Alejandro G. Iñárritu for “Birdman” and “The Revenant” in 2015 and 2016, Guillermo del Toro for “The Shape of Water” in 2018, and Cuarón again this year.

Cuarón, del Toro, and Iñárritu, collectively known as the Three Amigos, have singlehandedly turned Mexico into an Oscars powerhouse in the last six years. Cuarón’s 2013 win for “Gravity” was the first time a Mexican filmmaker won the Best Director Oscar, and since then the Three Amigos have owned the category. The one break came in 2017 when Damien Chazelle won the prize for “La La Land.”

Thanks largely to the Three Amigos, the 2010s is already the most inclusive decade when it comes to Oscar winners for Best Director.

'Roma' received three Academy Awards including Best Foreign Film and Cuaron's record breaking wins for Best Cinematography and Best Director, he was the first DP to be nominated for a film he also directed.

          Must-See Latinx Films at SXSW      Cache   Translate Page      

Image from 'The Garden Left Behind'

Every year in March, Austin becomes the epicenter for all things culture. Music diehards can find their favorite acts playing. Comedy fans can drop by a set or two by established and emerging stand-up comedians. And film aficionados? Well, they have an overabundance of riches. Having established itself as one of the coolest festivals around, South by Southwest (aka SXSW) needs no introduction. This year, their program encompasses 134 feature films including 101 world premieres as well as 64 films from first-time filmmakers.

Moreover, there is plenty of US Latino and Latin American talent to celebrate, both in front and behind the camera. And while we know you’ll be checking out that new Seth Rogen-Charlize Theron film as well as that Beto O’Rourke doc which followed his campaign, we wanted to compile a list exclusively for Latinos. Below you’ll find our favorites from the feature film lineup, from Sundance standout docs about AOC to long-awaited horror films which hope to capitalize on our fears of La Llorona.

The Garden Left Behind

Director Flavio Alves' film centers on Tina (Carlie Guevara), a 30 year-old transgender woman and her grandmother, Eliana (Miriam Cruz), have been struggling to make a life for themselves in New York since emigrating from Mexico when Tina was only six years old.  Eliana longs to return to Mexico, while Tina desires acceptance in America. The ineffable bond formed between the two formidable women has made them not only each other’s stalwart support in a hostile world but a potential millstone as well.

The Infiltrators

Following a successful Sundance Film Festival, where the film received two NEXT Awards Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera's film is headed to SXSW. Based on true events, The Infiltrators is both a suspenseful account of a high-stakes mission and an emotionally charged portrait of visionary youth fighting for their community.Co-directors Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra are alumni of the NALIP Latino Media Market.

Building the American Dream

Director Chelsea Hernandez' Building the American Dream captures a turning point as a movement forms to fight widespread construction industry injustices.

Red 11 

From Director Robert Rodriguez' own story notes from his experiences in a Medical Research Facility, RED 11 is a horror thriller set in a dark, twisted version of the Legal Drug Research business.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Via Teleconference
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: Joining us from our Secretary of State Department – the State Department, is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Good morning.

QUESTION: Mr. Secretary, welcome to Houston and thank you for joining us here this morning.

SECRETARY POMPEO: It’s great to be with you this morning.

QUESTION: Tell us a little bit about what’s going on in Venezuela and why we’re removing the last of our diplomats there.

SECRETARY POMPEO: We made the decision yesterday that it just was prudent to get these folks back. The situation there is deteriorating. The Maduro regime’s horrific leadership over the last years has just made life there so difficult, it began to make it more difficult for the United States to take the actions that it needed to do to support the Venezuelan people. So we concluded this was simply the right step to take and this was the right time to take it.

QUESTION: Now you’re more or less going around the country right now speaking to people. I understand we’re second on your tour. You’re here talking about energy policy. In Texas, energy security, border security, these are the foremost of Texans’ minds. How can you address both of those?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So that’s the reason I wanted to come down here. I – before I entered government service for the second time in my life, I was in that industry. I ran a company that made pumping units and sold (inaudible) equipment. I know the Permian Basin, I know East Texas well, and as the Secretary of State, energy turns out to be at the very center of what I do many, many days, whether I’m in the Philippines or in Europe. The issue of American energy, the ability of us to deliver that energy around the world, helps keep American safe. It’s an important diplomatic tool for the United States and the production boom that’s taken place over the past years is enormously important for American national security. I wanted to come to Texas today and share those thoughts with the people of Texas.

QUESTION: Okay. Do you have any thoughts on the border while you’re here as well? That’s an area that’s very, very important to the President is to secure more border wall funding to get that job done. Is there anything further we – that can be done in order to advance that agenda?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So you saw yesterday the President’s request for additional funding for the border wall and additional security measures as well. As the chief diplomat for the United States of America, I understand that we need to know who’s coming into our country. We need to make sure we can control the flow of not only people but drugs and other contraband across the border. So securing that border’s important. President Trump has made it an enormous priority and he is asking Congress to provide our administration the resources to achieve that goal.

QUESTION: We – how much cooperation are you able to get from these other countries? I mean, Mexico I know has been taking steps to try to help this blow-through that we’re getting from Central America, but how much influence can you really exert?

SECRETARY POMPEO: My relationship with the new Mexican Government has been fantastic. My counterpart Foreign Minister Ebrard has truly done a number of things which I think will, over time, have a real benefit, but we need them to do more. The number of folks crossing over the past weeks has increased. This isn’t good for Mexico to have these folks traversing. It’s not good for the people who are having to make this dangerous trek through Mexico as well. We need to do this collectively. We’re working closely with President Obrador and my foreign minister counterpart to come up with a comprehensive solution that will secure our border and also ensure that there’s less risk to the people who are sometimes living very desperate situations.

QUESTION: This is maybe a nonquitter here, but Europe, the EU is going to start requiring visas from Americans who want to head over to Europe. What’s that all about?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So I’ve seen those reports. I think we need to just learn a little bit more before we jump to too many conclusions.

QUESTION: All right, again, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is with us here on NewsRadio 740, KTRH. Obviously the President met not that long ago with Kim Jong-un in an attempt to try to move things a little bit forward in our dealings with North Korea. There’s been all sorts of reports about whether or not the North Koreans are restarting up some of their nuclear program. Is there anything you can tell us about that and bring us up to date on that story?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So the most important thing, I think, for folks to know is that the progress that we’ve made with North Korea over the past – goodness, year and change – has been real. They haven’t conducted any further missile tests, no more nuclear testing, two important tools for advancing their program. I was with the President in Hanoi. We didn’t make as much progress as we would’ve hoped achieving what Chairman Kim told us he would do. I’ve been with Chairman Kim I think now four or five times. He has promised to denuclearize. He did not arrive there prepared to do as much as we need him to do, and we’re going to continue to work to achieve that outcome. It is a real threat to the United States of America and we want to get North Korea to honor its commitment to denuclearize, and then there can be a brighter future for the North Korean people as well.

QUESTION: Stopping the war exercises or the naval exercises with South Korea, good idea you think?

SECRETARY POMPEO: The Department of Defense is confident it can maintain the readiness it needs to take whatever action it might need to take at some point to work with our allies, Japan and South Korea, and to keep the American people safe. President concluded that this made sense as we’re trying to develop a relationship with the North Koreans such that we can get this ultimate objective, something that frankly America has been trying to do for decades now without success. He concluded it made sense and I’m confident we can still protect American interests while reducing the number of major war games that take place there on the peninsula.

QUESTION: All right, Mr. Secretary, enjoy your time here with us in Houston.

QUESTION: We don’t have time to get to China, but thank you so much for --

SECRETARY POMPEO: Good enough. Good to talk to you. Thanks for having me on the show. It’s great to be here in Houston.

QUESTION: It’s good to have you here, sir. Thank you again.

  05斯莱特桥,建于十八世纪底,位于英国坎布里亚郡,横跨布拉塞河,是拱形和板式的组合,是一条驮马的路线,从山上的采石场运送石板。拱顶石高达1.3米而宽度只有1.2米,意味着需要非常小心的通过。Built in the late 18th century across the River Brathay, Slaters' Bridge in Cumbria is a combination of arch and slab and was on a pack-horse route to carry slates from quarries in the hills. The voussoirs (arch stones) are up to 4.3ft long. The width of only 4.2ft meant it required very careful passage.

          Abogados y Contratos participa en Iniciativa México 2011      Cache   Translate Page      

Es un gran honor para nosotros comentar que registramos el proyecto ABOGADOS Y CONTRATOS.COM este miércoles 29 de junio como participante en el Concurso denominado "INICIATIVA MÉXICO", como un Proyecto ya en curso, en la categoría "INICIATIVA ES SER DE LEY" y en la subcategoría "CULTURA DE LA LEGALIDAD".

De acuerdo a las bases y requisitos establecidos por la convocatoria del concurso, a continuación les presentamos la justificación con la que nuestro proyecto fue inscrito:

A.1. PROBLEMÁTICA


México enfrenta serios problemas de competitividad, según lo refleja  el Reporte de Competitividad Global 2010-2011 del Foro Económico Mundial.
Entre las causas de este problema están nuestra falta generalizada de cultura jurídica y el abuso en aquellos sin conocimientos legales. Se suelen hacer en México convenios jurídicos con mucha ligereza y/o solo de palabra (e.g. asociaciones o venta de inmuebles y vehículos), y ello suele limitar gravemente los buenos resultados de la actividad que se originó producto de esos acuerdos.
Estamos convencidos que la falta de cultura y seguridad jurídica en México impiden la realización de grandes propósitos y empresas, necesarios para que nuestro país sea económicamente más próspero y competitivo.

A.2.  MOTIVACIÓN


La idea surge cuando se detecta en Internet una laguna de servicios jurídicos online, especialmente asesorías legales y la disponibilidad de contratos en un formato elegante, amigable y fácil de utilizar.
Creemos que se impedirían muchos abusos legales si la gente pudiera siempre consultar a un abogado. Creemos que se impedirían muchos conflictos y malos entendidos si la gente respaldara siempre sus actividades con contratos por escrito.
En ese sentido, nos motivó la gran oportunidad de poder ayudar a muchísima gente en México a través de un portal jurídico que brindara contratos y asesorías legales de manera totalmente gratuita, y que ello se pudiera traducir a largo plazo en un aumento de la cultura jurídica y de la competitividad del país.

B.1. DESCRIPCIÓN

Abogados y contratos punto com es un portal jurídico en Internet que presta servicios en línea totalmente gratuitos, siendo los dos más importantes: las consultas jurídicas y los formatos de contrato listos para imprimirse desde la comodidad del hogar u oficina.
Somos un despacho virtual en línea,  cuyo objetivo es ayudar a la gente. No somos el sitio de Internet de un despacho ya existente.

B.2. CÓMO ESTAMOS SOLUCIONANDO EL PROBLEMA

Nuestra primera gran estrategia es ser el mejor despacho jurídico en línea de México. Por ello, actualmente tenemos disponibles 79 formatos de contratos y diversos instrumentos jurídicos totalmente gratuitos, que creemos corresponden a las actividades más comúnmente desarrolladas.
Tenemos también un formulario de asesoría jurídica gratuita, en el cual los usuarios del sitio nos plantean su problemática legal y nosotros, en un plazo aproximado de tres días hábiles, les damos nuestra opinión y, de existirlas, posibles soluciones.
Actualmente nuestra principal herramienta para darnos a conocer es a través de campañas publicitarias en motores de búsqueda por Internet. Estamos desarrollando planes para darnos a conocer en otros sitios de Internet.

B.3. IMPACTO DEL PROYECTO

En nuestro primer año de actividades hemos recibido más de 30,000 visitas, y hemos respondido más de 1,026 consultas de las cuales 648 corresponden a asesorías legales y 378 a asesorías sobre contratos en particular. En ese mismo periodo se han descargado más de 90 contratos diarios,  poco más de 33,000 en total.
Estos números reflejan el impacto positivo que el sitio está teniendo en la sociedad mexicana, a pesar de su reciente creación y de los limitados recursos con los que se ha publicitado.
Personas beneficiadas:
Directamente = + 10,000
Indirectamente = +10,000

B.4. POBLACIÓN BENEFICIADA


Beneficiamos a adultos de ambos sexos, de todo el país, de todas las clases sociales y nivel educativo.


B.5. FUTURO

Nos consolidaremos como el mejor portal jurídico de Internet en México. Recibiremos más de mil visitas diarias y responderemos cerca de dos mil consultas mensuales en todas las ramas del derecho. Tendremos oficinas y personal calificado trabajando para ayudar a la gente aclarándole sus dudas legales.
Tendremos un acervo mayor de contratos, y habremos perfeccionado los ya existentes. Nos asociaremos con otros sitios de internet para que puedan ofrecer nuestros contratos gratuitos a sus usuarios.

B.6. SUSTENTABILIDAD ECONÓMICA

Cuando el sitio se consolide como el mejor portal jurídico en línea, creemos que generaremos bastante confianza en nosotros, para que se nos encomienden suficientes “contratos a la medida” que generen los ingresos necesarios para su sostenibilidad.

C. INNOVACIÓN

Actualmente no existe ningún sitio de Internet en México que esté prestando gratuitamente los servicios de contratos y asesoría jurídica en línea.
Existen sitios que tienen foros donde la gente puede hacer consultas jurídicas, pero no existe garantía de respuesta, ni de su veracidad. Hay otros sitios donde después de la consulta se debe fijar una cita personal para recibir la asesoría.
Por otro lado, existen sitios creados ex profeso para brindar el servicio de contratos, pero incluso los formatos más básicos se encuentran a la venta. Finalmente, existen sitios que regalan formatos de contratos y otros instrumentos legales, sin embargo, éstos son cargados por los propios usuarios del sitio sin filtros y se carece de control de calidad alguno.

          New alternative to Trump's wall would create jobs, renewable energy, and increase border security      Cache   Translate Page      


  • The proposal was recently presented to several U.S. members of Congress.
  • The plan still calls for border security, considering all of the facilities along the border would be guarded and connected by physical barriers.
  • It's undoubtedly an expensive and complicated proposal, but the team argues that border regions are ideal spots for wind and solar energy, and that they could use the jobs and fresh water the energy park would create.

None


"What should the U.S. do about The Wall?" is a question that's destined to divide many Americans. But there's one proposal for the U.S.-Mexico border that, at least in theory, seems agreeable to everyone.

A consortium of 28 engineers and scientists has proposed that – instead of building a simple barrier along the approximately 2,000-mile border – the U.S. and Mexico could work together to build an industrial park along the divide that would include desalination facilities, solar energy panels, wind turbines and natural gas pipelines. The plan would not only provide the region with border security – considering it'd be a continuous train of heavily guarded industrial facilities – but also energy, water and jobs.

In a white paper, the team called it a "future energy, water, industry and education park" that "will create massive opportunities for employment and prosperity."

"Just like the transcontinental railroad transformed the United States in the 19th century, or the Interstate system transformed the 20th century, this would be a national infrastructure project for the 21st century," Luciano Castillo, Purdue University's Kenninger Professor of Renewable Energy and Power Systems and lead of the consortium, told Phys.org. "It would do for the Southwest what the Tennessee Valley Authority has done for the Southeast over the last several decades."

None


Building such a park would undoubtedly be a complicated, expensive undertaking. The team estimates the solar energy arm of the project alone would require 8 million solar panels and cost $4.5 billion. Still, many parts of the border region are ideal for generating renewable energy. The white paper describes how the areas of strong winds in the Gulf and Baja California regions "are ideal for wind farms."

Similarly, the desalination part of the proposal would bring water to California, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona – areas "in the grip of severe to exceptional drought conditions," the paper states. The team added that these efforts, which would include an "interconnected super-pipe system" along the entirety of the border, could help make the U.S. a global leader in the industry.

"At first blush the idea seems too big, too aggressive, but consider the Roman aqueducts or the transcontinental railroads—enormous undertakings that gave enormous benefits. The cost of providing basic, essential infrastructure to the border lands is tiny compared to the opportunities it creates," Ronald Adrian, Regent's Professor at Arizona State University, told Phys.org. "I view this project as a means of creating wealth by turning unused land of little value along the border into valuable land that has power, water access and ultimately agriculture, industry, jobs, workers and communities. With only a wall, you still have unused land of little value."

So far, the team has presented their proposal to three U.S. representatives and one senator. It's a plan that they say will help reduce illegal immigration while providing more jobs and cleaner energy to both U.S. and Mexico.

"Democrats want a Green New Deal. Republicans want border security," Castillo told Scientific American. "Both parties could win. It could be a win–win for the U.S. and Mexico, too. This idea could spark a completely new conversation about the border. And we need that."


          New Mexico Bill Would Create First State-Run Pot Shops in U.S.      Cache   Translate Page      
New Mexico would become the first U.S. state to set up its own government-operated marijuana stores and subsidize medical cannabis for the poor under a bill brokered between Republicans and Democrats, as a new wave of states weighs legislation that would legalize recreational sales and consumption. The idea for state-run pot shops comes from a trio of GOP state senators who broke with local Republican Party orthodoxy to embrace legal marijuana with a decidedly big-government approach that would have the […]

          The End of an Era      Cache   Translate Page      
From the beginning of our marriage Tom and I agreed on one thing wholeheartedly. No matter what we did in life to serve God (for that was another definite for us) we would include our kids. We wanted them to not feel sidelined by our life's calling, but an important part of it.

When we returned from our mission to Mexico--where we'd spent our newlywed years--with a newborn and twin toddlers, we didn't have many options, but we tried to use our time wisely, even if it was simply sharing the message of Jesus with people we met along the way.



As more children came along, homeschooling got busier, and Tom's responsibilities grew in his work, we kept our eyes on the prize. Tom worked as a chaplain for the Seafarers Center on his one day off each week. I scoured the newspaper for volunteer opportunities and took the kids with me to deliver Meals on Wheels or pass out Christmas cards to nursing home residents. 

From the very beginning we formed a tiny singing troupe and added kids along the way. 

Singing and dancing on the beach of Corpus Christi

"I'd like to be a Christmas tree!"

Child five added for another Christmas season

Even those that couldn't perform could still hug


Jasmine was a natural

Timothy was a champion at tenderly praying with everyone he met

Our kids have had amazing experiences along the way because of our having taken them along for the ride.

Food distribution at a Navajo reservation
Encouraging first responders after 9-11
Exploring Botswana
Meeting traditional rulers and Chiefs

When we got the call to Africa we made sure that any projects we took on would be able to include our kids. At the beginning it was working with a community school which was a great fit. When our work changed a few years later and became mostly adult education (Bible, health, leadership, etc.), we took our kids to volunteer at an orphanage so they would have their own work to do. This led to us discovering the great need for homes for babies and toddlers who've lost their mothers, and eventually to starting our own orphanage.


Jennifer
Jessica
Our kids worked side by side with us from the beginning. Caring for sick babies, playing with the toddlers, teaching the preschoolers, offering cuddles and love, and just being all around amazing helps to us.

Jessica with Henry (2007)

Troy and Jennifer (2008)

Jennifer (2008)

Jasmine (2008)



T.J with Peter (2009)


Timothy and Johnny (2009)

One by one our kids grew up (as they tend to do) and headed off to college. Six became four became three became two became ONE. And now Troy, our youngest, our baby, our last is leaving home and moving back to the States to pursue God's plan for him. 


Troy has been a great big brother to all the kids

People often ask us if our kids will come back and join us in Zambia again. And the answer is YES--if God asks them to. At the moment they are fulfilling His plan for them, and continuing to serve God and others where they are right now.

We miss them terribly, but are so happy to have had many many years of family service together.

And now we are embarking on life as empty nesters.......

          Cổ phiếu của Boeing tiếp tục lao dốc sau làn sóng 'cấm cửa'      Cache   Translate Page      

Giá cổ phiếu của tập đoàn chế tạo máy bay Boeing tiếp tục lao dốc trong phiên ngày 12/3 sau khi ngày càng nhiều quốc gia và hãng hàng không trên thế giới đình chỉ khai thác dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max.

Theo đó, giá cổ phiếu Boeing đã giảm 6,15% trong phiên 12/3, đóng cửa ở mức 375,41 USD/cổ phiếu. Tính đến hiện tại, cổ phiếu của nhà sản xuất máy bay này đã sụt giảm 11,15% chỉ trong vòng hai ngày.

Công ty dịch vụ tài chính Edward Jones có trụ sở tại bang Missouri (Mỹ) đã hạ xếp hạng cổ phiếu Boeing vào hôm thứ Hai, đồng thời cho rằng vụ tai nạn mới đây nhất liên quan đến dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max có thể tác động mạnh đến lợi nhuận trong ngắn hạn của cổ phiếu này.

Dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max vẫn đang phải hứng chịu làn sóng cấm khai thác từ một loạt các cơ quan quản lý hàng không và các hãng hàng không.

Mới đây, Cơ quan An toàn Hàng không châu Âu (EASA) ngày 12/3 đã công bố quyết định đình chỉ mọi hoạt động bay đối với 2 phiên bản máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 và Boeing 737 MAX 9 sau khi xảy ra hai vụ tai nạn máy bay thảm khốc liên quan đến mẫu máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 chỉ trong vòng 5 tháng.

Tuyên bố của EASA khẳng định tất cả các chuyến bay thương mại liên quan đến dòng Boeing 737 MAX trong không phận châu Âu sẽ bị đình chỉ.

Quyết định trên được đưa ra sau khi một loạt các cơ quan quản lý hàng không thuộc Trung Quốc, Indonesia, Hàn Quốc, Vương quốc Anh, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Đức, Mexico, New Zealand, Italy... đều có động thái tương tự.

Nhiều hãng hàng không cũng quyết định dừng khai thác dòng máy bay 737 MAX như Ethiopian Airlines, Comair, Cayman Airways, Gol Airlines, Aeromexico, Aerolineas Argentinas... Một số quốc gia Nam Mỹ cũng tuyên bố đang đánh giá tình hình trước khi đưa ra quyết định đóng cửa không phận đối với phiên bản máy bay 737 MAX 8 của Boeing.

Tuy nhiên, Cơ quan Quản lý Hàng không Mỹ (FAA) tuyên bố không đình chỉ hoạt động của máy bay 737 MAX, cho rằng chưa có cơ sở chính xác để đưa ra quyết định trên nhưng sẽ yêu cầu nhà sản xuất chỉnh sửa thiết kế để cải tiến hệ thống điều khiển bay.

Bên cạnh đó, hãng hàng không của Mỹ gồm Southwest Airlines, American Airlines và United Airlines cũng đều bảy tỏ tin tưởng về đội bay của họ, dù các tiếp viên trên không và bộ phận dưới mặt đất của Southwest và American đều kêu gọi công ty tạm dừng khai thác dòng Boeing 737 Max cho đến khi vụ tai nạn ngày 10/3 có thêm thông tin.

Trong phiên 12/3, giá cổ phiếu của Southwest Airlines giảm 2,3% xuống quanh mức 50 USD. Giá cổ phiếu của American Airlines cũng để mất 3,5% xuống 30,92 USD vào cùng phiên này.

Chiếc Boeing 737 MAX 8 mang số hiệu ET 302 của hãng hàng không Ethiopian Airlines ngày 10/3 đang trên hành trình từ thủ đô Addis Ababa của Ethiopia đến thủ đô Nairobi của Kenya đã rơi chỉ 6 phút sau khi cất cánh từ sân bay quốc tế Bole ở thủ đô Addis Ababa, khiến toàn bộ 149 hành khách và 8 thành viên phi hành đoàn thiệt mạng.

Dù các nhà chức trách vẫn chưa xác định được chính xác nguyên nhân của vụ tai nạn thảm khốc trên, nhưng dư luận ngày càng lo ngại về sự an toàn của dòng máy bay 737 Max sau khi đã có hai vụ tai nạn liên quan đến dòng này xảy ra trong vòng chưa đầy nửa năm./.

“There is something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.”  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 

Most of us, I would guess, are afraid of our own brainpower.  We go through life accepting partial responsibility for our capabilities to think critically and creatively. We might only accept the challenge to open up our minds to other points of view or in Sherlock Holmes' case, "the spirits of the nether world," when our backs are against the wall--when we are hungry for more than bread.

In my new novel, The Middle Eye, Penny Larkin is a starving copy writer, who must find another career. She turns to Controlled Remote Viewing, a psychic spying technique established by the CIA for the U.S. Army in the 1970s.  Right out of the gate, she must help the El Paso County Sheriff, Leo Tellez, find eleven year old Rosa Garcia, who has gone missing from an El Paso, Texas playground.

Imagine Penny's surprise and horror when she manages to locate Rosa, but falls victim to Rosa's kidnappers--a Russian child-trafficking ring moving children across the U.S.-Mexico border.

          Colombian Authorities Capture Drug-Smuggling Submarine [VIDEO]      Cache   Translate Page      
Acting on tips from informants, soldiers in Colombia have seized a 99-foot fully submersible submarine that was intended to be used for drug smuggling. The fiberglass boat had enough room for eight tons of drugs and a crew of six, and enough power to make the eight-or- nine-day trip from Columbia to Mexico totally underwater. It hasn’t been uncommon for Colombian authorities to catch narco-traffickers with semi-submersible submarines, but smugglers using fully submersible subs is more unusual. It is estimated the sub cost two million dollars to build. Continue reading…

Delta Boeing 777 200LR in flight_0

  • From now until April 3, Delta's three main credit cards are offering their highest-ever new-cardholder bonuses.
  • Even if you've had one of these cards before, you can still open a different card.
  • We break down the differences between the three cards — read on to see which is best for you.
  • You can also read our guide to the best credit cards of 2019 overall.

One of the fastest ways to get a ton of frequent-flyer miles or rewards points quickly is to open a credit card and earn its new member bonus. This is arguably the best way to boost your stock of points and get you closer to a big award trip.

There are two key things to keep in mind when opening a card for the welcome bonus.

The first is whether an offer on a card is the highest you expect to be able to earn.

The second is whether the card offers enough ongoing value for it to be worth keeping after the first year.

For anyone who flies Delta Air Lines — even occasionally — right now is an ideal time to open a new card because both of those considerations are met.

Until April 3, Delta's three main consumer credit cards are offering their highest-ever publicly available welcome offers.

Plus, the three cards each offer a ton of ongoing value, whether you're a casual flyer or a hard-core Delta loyalist.

Read on to learn more about the three cards, and see which one is best for you.

Best for the casual Delta flyer: The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

Welcome offer: 60,000 Delta SkyMiles when you spend $2,000 in the first three months. Plus, get a $50 statement credit when you make any Delta purchase in the first three months.

The Gold Delta SkyMiles card is the best of the three for the casual Delta flyer, someone who finds themself on the airline a couple of times a year, but doesn't fly regularly enough to use the heftier cards' perks (more on that later).

One of the biggest perks: The card offers a free first checked bag for the cardholder and up to eight people on the same reservation. Delta charges $30 each way for a checked bag, so this can save up to $60 per person on a round-trip itinerary.

Cardholders and travel companions also get Zone 1 priority boarding. This means you can board the plane sooner, giving you plenty of time to settle into your seat or find overhead space for any carry-on luggage. Zone 1 is after most Delta elite frequent flyers and extra-legroom passengers, but is usually within the first half of passengers to board.

Other perks include discounted day passes to Delta Sky Club airport lounges — $29 per day pass — as well as a 20% discount on in-flight purchases (in the form of a statement credit), such as food or drinks, and no foreign transaction fees.

Like the other Delta cards, the Gold SkyMiles card earns 2x Delta SkyMiles on eligible Delta purchases, and 1x mile on everything else.

The Gold Delta card has an annual fee of $95, which is waived the first year. This is a great value considering the perks, not to mention the welcome bonus — 60,000 SkyMiles is more than enough for two round-trip flights across the United States, and is just shy of enough for a round-trip to Europe. The card normally offers 30,000 SkyMiles.

Best for more regular flyers: The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

Welcome offer: 75,000 Delta SkyMiles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you spend $3,000 in the first three months. Plus, get a $100 statement credit when you make any Delta purchase in the first three months.

If you fly somewhat regularly, the Platinum Delta SkyMiles card is a better option, thanks to an often-overlooked benefit that can completely cover the $195 annual fee each year.

The Platinum Delta card has most of the same perks as the Gold version, like priority boarding, free checked bags, 2x SkyMiles on Delta purchases and discounted Sky Club access.

However, the Platinum Delta comes with a huge perk — it's so useful that I'm planning on keeping my card indefinitely.

After your first year with the card, you'll get an annual domestic companion pass each year at your card-member anniversary. A Delta companion pass is essentially a buy-one-get-one-free coupon. When you book an economy-class flight for yourself anywhere within the continental US, you can get a second ticket for free, other than minimal taxes and fees.

The companion pass completely blows away the annual fee for me, which is $195 and isn't waived the first year. My wife and I fly domestically at least a few times a year, whether it's to visit family or friends, or to go on vacation. So I save my companion pass until we're taking a flight together that costs more than $195 each. You can read more about the Delta companion pass benefit here.

While you don't get a companion pass the first year, the 75,000 SkyMiles from the welcome offer more than outweigh the annual fee — that's enough to fly from the US to just about anywhere in Europe round-trip.

The MQMs in the welcome bonus can be a boost for anyone looking to earn or keep Delta Medallion frequent-flyer status. Plus, each year that you spend $25,000 or more on the card, you earn a bonus 10,000 SkyMiles, 10,000 MQMs, and have the Medallion Qualifying Dollar (MQD) requirement for most elite status levels waived.

When you have Medallion status, you can enjoy things like free upgrades to first class or extra-legroom seats whenever you fly, subject to availability.

Best for Delta Medallion frequent flyers: The Delta Reserve® Credit Card from American Express

Welcome offer: 75,000 Delta SkyMiles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you spend $5,000 in the first three months. 

The Delta Reserve card has a higher, $450 annual fee, but it has a few additional perks that can make it worthwhile for some frequent flyers. 

Like the Platinum SkyMiles card, it offers a domestic companion pass. However, that pass can be used for first-class tickets, not just economy.

Additionally, the Delta Reserve offers full access to Delta Sky Club airport lounges whenever the cardholder is flying with Delta (the Gold and Platinum SkyMiles cards offer discounts on single-access Sky Club passes).

The Reserve has one other major perk, which can be crucial for travelers who hold Delta Medallion elite status.

Delta Medallion members are eligible for complimentary, space-available upgrades to first class and Delta One on flights within the US and the region, including Mexico and Central America, and extra-legroom seats on international flights.

Upgrades clear in hierarchical order based on a number of factors, including each passenger's Medallion status level, the original fare class they booked, and a few other factors. The first tiebreaker for people with the same Medallion level and fare class: whether they hold the Delta Reserve card. Reserve cardholders will be prioritized over those without it. If there's only one seat left and two members are still tied and both have the Reserve, it continues down the list of tiebreakers.

For travelers who fly a lot and frequently find themselves one or two upgrade-list spots away from getting that first-class seat, holding the Reserve can be extremely valuable.

  • Pssst … in case you didn’t know, vaccines work:

At least 228 cases of measles have been reported since January 1 in the United States, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Steve Bannon will travel next week to Cincinnati to rally and raise money for a wall on private land along the border with Mexico.  [...]

  • Do they really think they’re in a position to be demanding apologies … unless they’re upset about the music part:

Catholic officials in Brooklyn are seething about Pete Davidson’s comments this weekend on Saturday Night Live comparing the church’s sex abuse scandals with the allegations against R. Kelly. The Diocese of Brooklyn posted a statement on its website Monday, demanding SNL apologize for what it called a “disgraceful and offensive skit.” [...]

“This guy is a monster and he should go to jail forever,” Davidson said about Kelly during the “Weekend Update” segment. “But if you support the Catholic church, isn’t that like the same thing as being an R. Kelly fan? I don’t really see the difference, except for one’s music is significantly better.” 

  • They need to be taking additional steps on this one:

Of the United States’ 161 active volcanoes, 57 are under-monitored, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, creating blind spots that pose a huge potential threat to public safety. [...]

Congress recently took its first step toward addressing the problem.

          FACT CHECK: Mexico Isn't Paying For The Border Wall, Military Unlikely To Build It      Cache   Translate Page      
President Trump launched his campaign in 2015 promising, "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words." Before long, supporters were chanting, "Build the wall!" and Trump was leading them in a call and response. Who will pay for the wall? Mexico. He told rally-goers that a lot of politicians said it wouldn't be possible to get Mexico to pay for it. "It's going to be so easy; it's going to be so easy," Trump insisted at the time. Times have changed. Mexico still hasn't paid for it, and the GOP-controlled Congress is debating yet another short-term government funding bill that doesn't contain the $5 billion in wall money over which Trump threatened a government shutdown just a week ago. His conservative media allies are rebelling, including Laura Ingraham of Fox News, who tweeted Wednesday , "It was supposed to be a 'big beautiful wall' with a 'big beautiful door.' Now it's just an open door with no frame. Unreal." Fact
