“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

Norma Hernandez, candidate for mayor of Chilpancingo, Evelyn Salgado, candidate for governor in the state of Guerrero celebrate with supporters on mid-term election day, in Chilpancingo, Guerrero state, Mexico June 6, 2021. "And definitely a step forward for women in our country and in political life." Only eight women had previously won regional elections, including the current mayor of Mexico City, MORENA's Claudia Sheinbaum, who is regarded as one of the favorites to succeed Lopez Obrador as president. Now seven out of the 32 regional governments, including Mexico City, will be run by women simultaneously. "Because of the macho mentality," argued Gypsy Lara, a 29-year-old business owner in Mexico City who said she would be happy to back Sheinbaum for president.

(CNN) The Atlantic hurricane season doesn't officially begin for another 12 days, but the early signs are it may end up being yet another very busy one. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued it's seasonal Atlantic hurricane forecast Thursday afternoon. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 and NOAA is just one of more than a dozen academic institutions , government agencies and private forecasting companies that put out seasonal projections. Another highly respected forecaster is Colorado State University, which was the first entity to issue a seasonal tropical forecast. So, for the moment, El Niño's calming effect on the Atlantic hurricane season does not seem likely for 2021.

For deep-diving elephant seals, it takes lots of work to stay fat

For elephant seals - one of the most distinctive of the 33 species that comprise the world's seal family - it is hard work to stay fat. Elephant seals get their name from the prominent noses of the males that resemble an elephant's trunk. There are two species - the northern elephant seal and the slightly larger southern elephant seal. Male northern elephant seals may reach 13 feet long (4 meters) and weigh up to 4,500 pounds (2,000 kg). The range of the northern elephant seal spans the Pacific coast of the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Lordstown Motors is one of a dozen electric vehicle start-ups that have wowed investors with big plans to revolutionize the auto industry. Then, in April, another prototype dropped out of a 280-mile off-road race in Baja California after just 40 miles. That frenzy has been driven by investors looking for the next Tesla, a pioneer in the industry that has a strong sales lead over other electric-car makers. But Lordstown seems far from achieving its goal of churning out electric pickup trucks starting in September and becoming a challenger to G.M. Shares of Nikola, which is developing heavy trucks, have fallen from around $65 to about $11, for example.

The change was announced in memos from top CBP and ICE officials, The Washington Post reported. The term "alien" will be replaced with "noncitizen or migrant" and "illegal" with "undocumented," the Post said. President Joe Biden's administration has told US immigration agencies to stop using terms like "illegal alien" when referring to undocumented migrants, according to The Washington Post. That Biden wanted to eliminate terms like "illegal alien" has been common knowledge since the first days of his presidency. "We use the term 'illegal alien' because they're here illegally," Sen. Tom Cotton tweeted Monday.

Mexican senators vote to extend term of Supreme Court president
  + stars: | 2021-04-16 | by ( ) sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
Mexico's Senate on Thursday voted to extend the term of the president of the Supreme Court for an extra two years, a move criticized by opposition lawmakers who called it a bid by the ruling party to strengthen its hold on the country's institutions. Arturo Zaldivar, who has been publicly supportive of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, was appointed in January 2019 with a term slated to end on Dec. 31, 2022. If the modification to extend his term passes in the lower house of Congress, he would hold his position until Nov. 30, 2024. Both houses of Congress are controlled by the ruling party MORENA and its allies. Senator Damian Zepeda of the National Action Party (PAN) opposed the attempt to extend Zaldivar's term, and warned that it could open the door to further bids to lengthen term limits, including for the Mexican presidency.

4 gray whales found dead in San Francisco Bay Area in 9 days

SAN FRANCISCO — Four dead gray whales have washed ashore San Francisco Bay Area beaches in the last nine days, with experts saying Friday one was struck by a ship. “It’s alarming to respond to four dead gray whales in just over a week because it really puts into perspective the current challenges faced by this species,” says Dr. Pádraig Duignan, Director of Pathology at The Marine Mammal Center. The carcass of a 41-foot adult female gray whale landed at San Francisco’s Crissy Field on March 31. In 2019, at least 13 dead whales washed ashore in the Bay Area and scientists said they feared it was because the animals were starving and couldn’t complete their annual migration from Mexico to Alaska. Nearly one in four gray whales migrating along the U.S. West Coast has died since the last recorded population assessment in 2015 and 2016, according to NOAA.

Guinness said Severinsen, 47, completed the swim on November 26 in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The previous record of 177 meters was set in 2016 by Carlos Coste. Severinsen said he hoped his swim would remind people that Covid-19 was not a reason to stop looking after nature. He also set a 2012 record for the longest timed breath held voluntarily, holding his breath for 22 minutes.

Slideshow ( 2 images )MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s president said on Thursday that women should decide whether the country should legalize abortion, but he declined to take a position on the issue, which is still opposed by many Mexicans. One day after the Argentine Senate voted to make abortion legal, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was asked during a news conference whether he thought his country should follow suit. “It’s a decision for women,” Lopez Obrador said, adding that mechanisms existed to organize referendums. A nationwide poll published in September 2019 by newspaper El Financiero showed that a woman’s right to abortion only had majority support in Mexico City and Baja California state. All told, 63% of people were against the right to abortion, and 32% in favor, according to the survey of 15,000 adults.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico recorded the lowest number of murders in the month of November in nearly three years, Mexican officials announced on Friday, but 2020 could still narrowly surpass last year’s unprecedented number of murders nationwide. Acting Security Secretary Ricardo Mejia said November registered 2,670 murders, the lowest monthly figure since President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took office. The November figure is the lowest monthly total since February 2018, when 2,445 murders were recorded. Mejia said the murders last month were concentrated in six states: Guanajuato, Baja California, Chihuahua, Jalisco, Michoacan, and the state of Mexico. Despite the monthly drop, for the full year Mexico may yet narrowly surpass the 34,670 murders recorded in 2019.
