REUTERS/Tomas BravoMexico’s manufacturing sector shrank for the 15th straight month in May due to subdued sales, raw material shortages and the COVID-19 crisis, though the rate of decline was the second-slowest since the pandemic hit Mexico, a survey showed on Tuesday. “PMI data for May suggested that Mexican manufacturers continued to struggle, with new orders again undermined by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Pollyanna De Lima, Economics Associate Director at IHS Markit. Mexico’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose to 4.7% in April from 4.4% in March, the national statistics agency said on Thursday. “Optimism was, however, pinned on hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic will be brought under control,” said De Lima.

BANGKOK — Bobby was a good boy. Preliminary studies, conducted in multiple countries, suggest that their detection rate may surpass that of the rapid antigen testing often used in airports and other public places. The hope is that dogs can be deployed in crowded public spaces, like stadiums or transportation hubs, to identify people carrying the virus. Their skills are being developed in Thailand, France, Britain, Chile, Australia, Belgium and Germany, among other countries. They have patrolled airports in Finland, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates, and private companies have used them at American sporting events.

The US Navy's fiscal year 2022 budget asks for just eight ships, only four of which are warships. The US Navy's newest budget request is asking for just eight ships, only four of which are combat vessels. The Department of the Navy's fiscal year 2022 budget is $211.7 billion and focuses more on readiness than growing the fleet, even as the service calls attention to China's rapidly growing naval force. "Though the US still maintains far more tonnage than China, China's navy has more ships than the US Navy, and they are building ships at a much greater rate," the Navy said in an overview of its budget request. The admiral noted that the Navy's request puts the service's previous goal of 355 ships out of reach.

China’s NetEase (9999.HK) is shoving its music-streaming business into the spotlight at a good time. NetEase plays second fiddle to Tencent (0700.HK), its $760 billion rival. Tencent Music Entertainment (TME.N), the titan’s slumping $26 billion answer to Spotify (SPOT.N), reported 615 mobile monthly active listeners in the three months to March, dwarfing NetEase’s 180 million. Beijing’s newly aggressive trustbusters are looking into Tencent Music, however, and may force it read more to unwind past acquisitions and surrender exclusive licensing deals with major record labels. NetEase also recently struck a deal with Sony Music Entertainment, suggesting the pressure is having an effect.

MEXICO CITY—Abel Murrieta, candidate for mayor in the northern city of Ciudad Obregón, was handing out fliers on a crowded street corner on May 13. Across Mexico, variations on that scene have played out in the run-up to midterm elections on June 6. From February to April, 46 elected officials, members of political parties and candidates for office were killed, a 44% jump compared with the 2018 elections, according to Integralia, a Mexican political consulting firm. Since September, when the electoral process began, 82 politicians have been killed, most of them gunned down. More than 60 candidates for mayor withdrew from the campaign across the country amid the spiral of violence and insecurity, according to party officials.

A tractor ploughs a hectare of land at Ejido Benito Juarez in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua February 29, 2008. REUTERS/Tomas Bravo/File PhotoA Mexican federal judge ruled against a request by the National Farm Council to freeze a government plan to ban genetically modified (GMO) corn and the widely used herbicide glyphosate by 2024, the national science council said on Monday. Judge Martin Adolfo Santos Perez's ruling allows the executive order issued by President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador late last year that outlines the planned ban to proceed. Mexico's National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT) is tasked by the president's order with identifying a substitute for glyphosate, which thousands of Mexican farmers use to clear fields prior to planting. To date, 17 legal challenges have been filed against the planned ban, according to CONACYT, mostly from companies arguing imminent harm if it is allowed to proceed.

On May 14, Mexican authorities confirmed that two members of the Mexican National Guard were killed in an ambush while entering the town.

Ten women took part in an OnlyFans show set up by the rapper Blueface called "Blue Girls Club." Unlike most reality shows, "Blue Girls Club" didn't offer a cash prize or even a way to win. There often wasn't much food in the house, two contestants said, and Stinson added that they mostly ate "ramen noodles and Domino's." Some of the girls enjoyed their time in the house, including Irie Cooper, known in the house as Butterscotch. He said Porter stopped taking the women out anywhere because "they would fight everywhere," usually under the influence of alcohol.

Fashion haul videos gained popularity in the early days of YouTube. The shorter length of TikTok videos is partly responsible for the quantity of haul videos being on the app, according to Lee.

"People think that thrift hauls are much better than fashion hauls, and I agree that, baseline, they are much better than buying new clothing," said Fang. Bravo said TikTok videos have been useful in showing some shoppers what certain clothes look like on different body types.

MEXICO CITY — A decision to change cars to get closer to a station exit may have saved Erik Bravo, a 34-year-old financial adviser who survived the collapse of an elevated line in Mexico City’s subway system that killed 25 people and injured around 80. Bravo walked toward the back not knowing the last two cars of the subway train had fallen into the rubble of the collapsed elevated rail bed. While Bravo knew there were cracks and defects, it never occurred to him that it might collapse. Even with the subway, Luna had to travel for hours to get to her job as a security guard. The collapse has temporarily closed the subway line, leaving thousands of residents on the south side dependent on bus service.

These are not friends of mine; these are people who appear on the Bravo TV show “Summer House,” whose drama I am embarrassingly invested in, and whose psychological motivations I spend time dissecting with friends and co-workers. The kind of one-way friendship I have with these reality stars has a name in the sociology world: It’s called a “parasocial relationship,” which is an emotional relationship with a media figure. Hussman School of Journalism and Media who has published research on parasocial relationships. “The feelings people have with these media persona are nearly indistinguishable from their friends in real life,” despite the fact that the celebrity in question usually (but not always) has no idea you exist, he said.

REUTERS/Jose Luis GonzalezThe United States this week will reunite four migrant families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border during the Trump administration, U.S. officials said, a small step toward fulfilling a campaign promise by President Joe Biden. The families will be allowed to enter the United States through an emergency process known as "humanitarian parole," Michelle Brane, who heads a Biden-created task force that aims to reunite separated families, told a call with reporters on Sunday. "In these cases that we're talking about this week, the children are in the United States and the parents are coming to join them," Brane said. Trump reversed the policy that summer amid an international outcry, but advocates and government watchdogs found separations began before the policy and continued after it. In some cases, parents were deported and children remained in the United States with other relatives or sponsors.
