Extreme temperatures and getting lost are the two greatest dangers facing thousands of people who each year try to cross into the US illegally over its southern border on long treks led - part of the way, at least - by people-traffickers known as "coyotes."

[OP-ED]: La madre de todos los ‘blufs’

 04/19/2017 - 08:02
Afortunadamente, no es solo el pánico lo que se expande, también lo hace la resistencia, que cada día crece y se fortalece. Y eso es muy bueno.
Spanish

Sí, eso es lo que retórica recalentada de Washington sobre Corea del Norte –a la que el país asiático responde en tonos igualmente belicosos – es en realidad: una sucia guerra de palabras. Pero puede estar seguro de que no están a punto de intercambiarse balas, cohetes, la madre de todas las bombas y mucho menos armas atómicas. Lo cual, por supuesto, es muy bueno.

[OP-ED]: The Mother of All Bluffs

Yes, that’s what the heated rhetoric coming from Washington about North Korea –and being responded to in no less bellicose tones by the Asian country – is: a nasty war of words. Rest assured that no bullets, no rockets, no mother of all bombs, not to mention atomic weapons are about to be fired, dropped or exchanged. Which, of course, is great.
