In "Loco Enamorado," Abraham Mateo is accompanied by urban icon Farruko from Puerto Rico in shaping a song the Spaniard defines as "reggaepop," a fusion of the pop that has been his signature music for all his young lifetime, and a reggaeton that is gaining world popularity thanks to the "Despacito" phenom.

Lo recuerdo muy bien. Fue en Dortmund, el último martes de septiembre durante una noche clásica de Champions League en la que el Borussia local recibía al Real Madrid, campeón de la competición. Christian Pulisic nos dejó a todos boquiabiertos. Salió del banquillo cuando quedaban solo 17 minutos, sustituyendo a Ousmane Dembélé, y volvió loco el partido.

[OP-ED]: In defense of globalization

The director general of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Roberto Azevedo, is speaking at a press conference held in the framework of the World Economic Forum that hosts the Alpine city of Davos, Switzerland. EFE

The World Economic Forum this year feels like an exercise in ritual self-flagellation, which -- as with the old Christian practice of fasting and whipping one’s own body -- is supposed to purify the sinful nature of man. The sin, of course, is globalization, which everyone now seems to agree has been lopsided, inequitable, and dangerous. In fact, most of the flaws attributed to globalization are actually mistakes in national policy that can be corrected.

I still remember it very well. It happened in Dortmund on the last Tuesday of September, during the typical Champions League night in which Borussia hosted defending champion Real Madrid. Christian Pulisic was amazing. He came from the bench with only 17 minutes remaining, replacing Ousmane Dembélé’s, and turned things around 180 degrees.
