Una de las manifestaciones tendrá lugar hoy lunes a las 4PM, mientras que la otra, convocada por los seguidores de Rizzo, ha sido denegada por el Ayuntamiento.

One is set to occur at 4PM today, while the other, comprised of Rizzo's devotees, has been shut down by the City.
Trump dismisses the nationalist voice within the White House.
I’ve given birth to three babies, shattered my wrist, broken my tailbone twice, gotten tattooed, and, once, when I was suspected of having contracted West Nile Virus, had two consecutive spinal taps (one failed) in the name of advancing medical students’ knowledge while securing a diagnosis.
Arizona search and rescue personnel are searching for a 27-year-old man who disappeared last Saturday during a landslide in the Payson National Park that killed nine people, all of them Latinas.
An anti-Muslim attack in a London mosque on Saturday was followed by a frustrated terrorist attack on Monday in Paris, where an armed man identified as an Islamic extremist was killed after he rammed a card loaded with weapons and explosives in to a police convoy. Increasing Islamist terror and hate crime against Muslims at the same time... is this exactly what ISIS want?
In the context of expansion of organized crime in Mexico, migrants have become easy targets, as they are more visible, easily identifiable as migrants and, in many cases, they walk on a predetermined route. At least 400 immigrants were killed on their way from Central America to the US in 2015.
Dear white America, have you ever wondered what people of color think of you?
By “people of color,” I mean those of us non-white Americans who used to be called “minorities.” But that was before we started to become a plurality, and eventually a majority, of the U.S. population.
This week’s bombing in Manchester was another gruesome reminder that the threat from radical Islamic terrorism is ongoing. And President Trump’s journey to the Middle East illustrated yet again how the country central to the spread of this terrorism, Saudi Arabia, has managed to evade and deflect any responsibility for it. In fact, Trump has given Saudi Arabia a free pass and a free hand in the region.
The United States may have escaped most digital damage from the global “ransomware” virus, though cyber experts fear more attacks. One possible explanation is that the malicious software (”malware”) harms older versions of Microsoft’s Windows operating system, which most Americans have replaced. Perhaps many users in other countries haven’t. Whatever the explanation, this is not the end of internet threats.
Gay men are often targeted by robbers, with gangs even specializing in this type of crime. The modus operandi is for the criminal to seduce the person either in person or via Internet and then, once inside the victim's home, to steal his belongings and kill him.
Riddle me this: How can the so-called elite media be so self-absorbed and still have so little self-awareness?
Today’s journalists too often make themselves the story. If a reporter gets arrested at a protest, he’ll be on the Sunday shows doing what he is not supposed to be doing: expressing his opinion.
We have yet another study that debunks the widespread notion that robots -- and other forms of automation, including “artificial intelligence” -- will destroy our jobs and lead to a future of permanently high unemployment. According to the study, that would completely rewrite history, which has shown job creation to be an enduring strength of the U.S. economy.

The popular animated television series has just drawn its own summary of what has been the first three months of the American magnate at the head of the White House.
During a meeting Tuesday, the Japanese prime minister told the vice president of the United States that he supported the stance taken by the US to keep all options open for countering threats posed by North Korea. But not much can be done without the support of China.
Carolina and her family fled from their native Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital, because for over a year Barrio 18 members had demanded more and more protection money every week to "watch over your business."Their original destination had been the United States until Donald Trump's arrival in the White House temporarily put the brakes on that idea.
Libertad de prensa a la mexicana. Es una manera triste, cínica quizás, de referirse a la interminable matanza de periodistas en el país azteca. Perpetrada con total impunidad, todo indica que hay una cacería inmisericorde de comunicadores sociales al sur de la frontera.
Freedom of the press Mexican style. It is a sad, even cynical way of referring to the unending slaughter of journalists perpetrated with impunity in our neighbor to the South, where it’s open season on freedom of speech.
En una reciente columna de opiniones, Stephanie Land caracterizó el actual frenesí por deshacerse de objetos, popularizado por el libro de Marie Kondo titulado “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”, como una especie de desprecio clasista.

Excerpt from just one of the many letters I received after having included the phrase "the current anti-immigrant atmosphere" in a recent column:"Unfortunately you are mistaken in using the phrase 'anti-immigration atmosphere'. Many American citizens with brown, black, white, or even yellow skin are angry with ILLEGAL immigrants and the damage they have done to our country.
