“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.

EXCLUSIVE Mexico now ready to welcome private lithium miners
  + stars: | 2021-06-02 | by ( David Garcia | ) + 0.00   time to read: +5 min
Mexico, a major copper and silver producer, is home to large potential reserves of lithium, used in electric vehicle (EV) batteries. In the energy sector, private oil majors have mostly balked at joint ventures with national oil giant Pemex if the state-run company runs operations and it was unclear if lithium investors would react similarly. Developing Mexico's lithium riches could help diversify global sources currently concentrated in a few countries, led by Australia and Chile. That distribution is why Fernando Alanis, former chief executive of top silver miner Peñoles, is downbeat on Mexico's potential to become a new lithium hot spot. Several lithium clay projects are under development elsewhere including Lithium Americas Corp.’s (LAC.TO) Nevada project.

With baseball season about to begin, I bought each of my sons, ages 5 and 8, a pack of 2021 Topps cards. At the other end of the market, a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle rookie card sold for a record $5.2 million in January. A month later came the most expensive basketball card transaction in history — a rookie trading card of Dallas Mavericks star guard Luka Doncic was purchased for $4.6 million. And in April, a rookie Tom Brady card was bought at an auction for $2.25 million, a record for football. Former Disney CEO Michael Eisner, who bought Topps 14 years ago, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" that the digital business, primarily apps, is growing rapidly and that blockchain will be a big part of the future.

Runaway cost of oxygen tanks adds extra agony to pandemic in Mexico

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A shortage of oxygen tanks in Mexico City and a fourfold rise in prices for the life-saving gas are compounding the coronavirus crisis for the sprawling capital’s hard-hit inhabitants. FILE PHOTO: People queue to fill oxygen tanks for relatives infected with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as part of a city's government free refill program, at the municipality of Iztapalapa, in Mexico City, Mexico January 18, 2021. As a result, many people are finding it impossible to buy or rent the vital tanks for relatives suffering from COVID-19. Ricardo Sheffield, the head of national consumer protection agency PROFECO, said last week that oxygen tanks were available and that prices should be stable. Elsewhere in the country, the sheer desperation to find scarce oxygen tanks has taken reckless turns.

Contractors working on President Trump's border wall are dynamiting pristine Arizona mountains to make way for construction, campaigners told Business Insider. Contractors rushing to finish sections of President Donald Trump's border wall before he leaves office are pointlessly destroying vast tracts of wilderness, campaigners have told Business Insider. Tons of dynamite is being used to blast access roads to the sites, let alone prepare the sites themselves, one campaigner told Business Insider in November. Jordahl said that border wall contractors — who drill deep wells to service their staging areas — have contributed to that depletion. But, Flesch told Business Insider that it would have a colossal effect on native species.

Pro-abortion activist Lupita Ruiz poses for a photo during an interview with Reuters, in Mexico City, Mexico November 11, 2020. Catalina Martinez, director for Latin America and the Caribbean at the Center for Reproductive Rights, a legal advocacy organization, said Argentina’s example inspired protests across Latin America. Outrage at worsening gender violence in Latin America, where the number of femicides has doubled in five years, has also spread awareness of the abortion rights movement and fueled demands for recognition of women’s rights in a conservative, male-dominated society. As in the United States, where conservatives have made gains in restricting a woman’s right to an abortion, there is pushback in Latin America against the calls for greater liberalization. To Briceno, Brazil’s shift to the right under Bolsonaro, who has vowed to veto any pro-abortion bills, was a reminder to push even harder for abortion rights.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico captured a gang leader accused of being the mastermind behind the massacre of nine women and children of U.S.-Mexican origin, authorities confirmed on Wednesday, a move that Washington hailed as a victory for bilateral cooperation. The multi-year investigation and case against the four-star general was dropped last week in a bombshell decision that U.S. prosecutors said was necessary to assure bilateral security cooperation. Ambassador to Mexico Christopher Landau congratulated Mexican security forces for the new arrests. Reuters reported last week that Mexico had committed to the arrest of a high-level cartel leader under a deal to drop U.S. the drug trafficking charges against Cienfuegos. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and the U.S. Department of Justice have denied a deal.

FILE PHOTO: Mexico's undersecretary of Human Rights Alejandro Encinas Rodriguez speaks next to Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (not pictured) during a news conference at the National Palace in Mexico City, Mexico August 30, 2019. Alejandro Encinas, deputy interior minister responsible for human rights, said there had been 138 homicides of journalists since 2010, 38 of them since President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took office on Dec. 1, 2018. Mexico is often ranked one of most dangerous countries for journalists to work in, and Lopez Obrador took power vowing to bring down violence and step up protections for media workers. However, murders of journalists have risen in tandem with record levels of homicides in Mexico as a whole, much of it fueled by rampant violence among feuding drug cartels. The most dangerous states for journalists since Lopez Obrador took office have been Sonora, Guerrero, Veracruz and Michoacan, according to the government’s figures.
