British quartet Arctic Monkeys and The Breeders were among the stars who got the biggest welcome at the 4th Corona Capital Festival, which attracted 80,000 fans in the Mexican capital.
For more than 12 hours without interruption, the music never stopped on one or another of the four stages set up at the Hermanos Rodiriguez Autodrome, home of the festival that has become one of the must-see events on the nation’s musical panorama.
Thousands of children born in the U.S. with parents who are undocumented immigrants probably go without health insurance.
“We tell them not to be afraid to register their children, that we will not share (their) personal information with anyone else,” Karelia Stanford told Florida Watchdog. Stanford is one of several Certified Enrollment Consultants working at the Doris Ison Community Health Center in south Florida.
The meeting, which was scheduled for 3:00 p.m., had been delayed to “allow leaders in the Senate time to continue making important progress towards a solution that raises the debt limit and reopens the government,” according to a White House statement.
Two Colombian nationals were detained Monday and five others are wanted for questioning in a probe of a series of robberies at luxury apartment complexes in three different Brazilian cities, authorities said.
A routine traffic stop in Tucson, AZ erupted into an impromptu Border Patrol protest Tuesday night, ending with police pepper-spraying a crowd of more than 100 people and taking two undocumented immigrants into custody.
Police noticed a passing car’s license plate light was out and stopped the vehicle. The driver and passenger told the officer they did not have driver’s licenses or any identification, so police called in Border Patrol to do an immigration check, as Arizona’s draconian immigration law, SB 1070, mandates. A crowd, many from the pro-immigration congregation of nearby Southside Presbyterian Church, amassed quickly. They joined hands and encircled the Border Patrol truck to keep agents from taking the two undocumented immigrants away.
According to multiple accounts, police pepper-sprayed the crowd in order to make them disperse. One woman interviewed by local ABC channel KGUN9 recounted how a female police officer sprayed her from “less than two feet away from me, and she sprayed my face dead on in my eyes for about a good 4 to 5 seconds. And then again too. So there was rough-housing, there was pushing people to the ground.”
Watch a video of the protest:
Police said they were just following orders according to SB 1070, and ultimately took the driver and the passenger into custody.
The bodies of two young bodies have been found shot and tortured by villagers at 08:00 am on Friday.
The bodies were on the floor of a parcel of land located near the Colesio, community “Cieneguitas” belonging to the municipality Yurécuaro and a few meters from Cerro Colorado.
One of the victims, Pedro Miguel Bravo Cortes, a 23-year-old native of the community of La Soledad, in Ecuandureo, had at least nine bullet wounds , one in the head.
The other deceased is as of yet unknown, approximately 30 years of age and had seven bullets wounds in different parts of his body.
Authorities have no leads on the double murder at this time. The bodies were taken to the Medical Examiner (Semefo) for the corresponding autopsy.
Two commercials come to mind when I think of multinational companies attempting to attract the growing Hispanic market: Tide with Toque de Downy: Osito and Samsung Galaxy S4 – Meet the Parents.
In the Osito commercial, the husband is white and speaks Spanish with a thick accent, while the wife is Latina, who only speaks to him in Spanish. The wife says that before she met him he was a “flacucho y muy descuidado” (loosely translated to a skinny and disorderly person). But after meeting her, she fixed him up and made him chubby, soft and orderly. She tenderly calls him her “Osito” in the interview (little teddy bear), but when the husband hears this, he contemplates the root of the Spanish word “Osito” and defends his sense of manhood by demanding that she call him her “Oso,” (bear) instead.
Using specially trained dogs and heavy machinery to remove the rubble, authorities are continuing the search for the missing people in the remains of the Space Building, which collapsed on Saturday night.
More than 20,000 people on Sunday in the northeastern Spanish city of Tarragona attended the largest beatification ceremony in history where 522 of the faithful killed during the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War were so honored.
The ceremony began with a message from Pope Francis in which he pointed out the example of these martyrs - whom he said imitated Jesus Christ - and insisted on the need to “open ourselves up to others, to those who most need it.”
Argentine President Cristina Fernandez was released on Sunday from the Fundacion Favolora Hospital in Buenos Aires, where she underwent surgery last week for a cerebrovascular injury, officials said.
The president returned to the official Olivos residence and will continue recuperating under “strict clinical-cardiological, neurosurgical and neurological monitoring” by the doctors treating her, doctors said.
