[OP-ED]: Hablamos de la frontera de manera equivocada

 05/04/2017 - 08:40
El muro podría empeorar el problema al “cercar” a muchos de los que se calcula que son 11 millones de inmigrantes ilegales de este lado de la frontera.
Spanish

Parece que todos tienen una enérgica opinión sobre el muro fronterizo de Donald Trump. Pero al menos deberíamos hablar del tema en la forma correcta. Es decir, con claridad, pragmatismo y sentido común.

The Atlantic reports about an explosion at a Florida nylon factory that has left American grocery stores with a sudden Reddi-wip shortage. Though this incident will make it harder to find the popular whipped cream topping this year, it also serves as an important reminder to appreciate the vast network of people and machines that go into making the treat possible to find.

Kill the Hipster in you. Forget about your Hipster bars, your Hipster clothes, your hipster way of life. “Hygge” ,  Danish for coziness and good spirits, has been listed as a “word of the year” by both the Collins and Oxford dictionaries – alongside Brexit and Trumpism – in the lexicographers’ annual public-relations exercise. Christmas markets, wool socks, friendly hugs. Hygge is, then, a retreat, an escape, a turning-inwards.

Spanish

'Tis the season to be jolly! You're stuffed from the turkey and trimmings, all the relatives have been placated for the time being, and the Christmas carols haven't gotten on your nerves yet.

But things are moving quickly. There are greeting cards to mail, people to visit, electronic gadgets to hunt down and parties to get to. You're busy. Verrrrry busy. And stressed out, and even a little overwhelmed . . . ummmm, maybe this is not the time to ask for a favor?

Well, here I go anyway, but I'll make it as simple as possible: Please feed me.
