    We're busy up here with COVID, another New York Times story based on people familiar with the situation, another day of former V.P. Joe Biden hiding in the basement, and lots of rumors about President Trump dropping out. Down in Mexico, the situation is not about rumors. Last week, Mexico City police chief Omar Garca Harfuch was gunned down near his Lomas de Chapultepec home in Mexico City. For the record, I'm very familiar with that part of Mexico City. It's upscale and exclusive. How did people with high-powered rifles enter this supposedly secured neighborhood? The assassination attempt happened at...

    Beginning this week, Mexican nationals arrested for crossing the border illegally will be flown to Mexico City instead of being dropped off at ports of entry... Border Patrol officials said the change in policy was needed to keep Mexican nationals from repeatedly trying to cross into the United States. According to CBP, at least one migrant had been expelled and caught as many as 10 times. People from nations other than Mexico, were already being flown back to their countries of origin.

    The number of people dying from the coronavirus pandemic in Mexico is five times higher than official government figures, according to health department insiders. A Sky News investigations team working in the country's capital Mexico City has documented cremations and funerals and gained access to morgues and storage rooms full of bodies - all indicate the official data is wrong. In much of Mexico City, the second largest city in Latin America, there is virtually no social distancing, with open air markets and some businesses operating normally, despite the coronavirus pandemic. The government claims that the virus curve has been...

    The disease is going to spread fast in Mexico, where a weak and corrupt state has made almost no preparations. As much of the world goes into various stages of lockdown because of the Wuhan coronavirus, Mexico is in denial. The government’s response thus far has been to downplay the risks and carry on with life as normal. Mexican officialdom has taken almost no steps to contain the virus or prepare for an outbreak, despite a warning last week from the deputy health minister that a widespread outbreak is inevitable and that community transmission could begin there in a matter...

    MEXICO CITY Women filled the streets of the world's largest cities Sunday to protest gender violence, inequality and exploitation on International Womens Day, with the mothers of murdered girls leading a march in Mexico City and participants in Paris inveighing against the virus of the patriarchy. While many protests were peaceful celebrations others were marred by tension, with security forces arresting demonstrators at a rally in Kyrgyzstan and police reportedly using tear gas to break up a demonstration by thousands of women in Turkey. In many different ways or forms, women are being exploited and taken advantage of, Arlene...

    Former Republican Congressman Aaron Schock, who resigned amid a financial scandal in 2015, was reportedly spotted at a gay club in Mexico City last weekend. An image of a man alleged to be the 38-year-old ex-politician was taken at Boy Bar, a popular gay bar in Mexico City's famed Zona Rosa, on Saturday around midnight. Schock has long denied being gay, calling questions about his sexuality "completely ridiculous and inappropriate."

    A supremely rare, multimillion-dollar Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition originally built for the Qatari royal family was wrecked in Mexico City over the weekend, according to witness accounts and photos posted on social media. Pictures show the 249-mph hypercar at a dead stop on the side of the Paseo de la Reforma, a major avenue that crosses the middle of Mexico's capital, immobilized by heavy front-end damage. Jagged, gaping holes can be seen in the carbon fiber bodywork. One of the rear wheels sits tilted at a grotesque angle. Curious onlookers gather round and stare at the car like a crashed...

    NFL cancels Mexico City trip, moves Chiefs-Rams game to Los Angeles The NFL has decided to move Monday's game between the Chiefs and Rams from Mexico City to Los Angeles because of poor field conditions at Estadio Azteca, it was announced Tuesday. Players had strongly considered not playing if the NFL had opted to keep the game in Mexico City, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter earlier Tuesday. The issue is that soccer games and concerts have left the field inside Estadio Azteca a mess. "It's not fair to risk our health," a prominent player told Schefter on Tuesday. . ....

  • The 11 cities most likely to run out of drinking water - like Cape Town

    BBC ^ | 02/12/2018
    Cape Town is in the unenviable situation of being the first major city in the modern era to face the threat of running out of drinking water. However, the plight of the drought-hit South African city is just one extreme example of a problem that experts have long been warning about - water scarcity. Despite covering about 70% of the Earth's surface, water, especially drinking water, is not as plentiful as one might think. Only 3% of it is fresh. Over one billion people lack access to water and another 2.7 billion find it scarce for at least one month...

The skeleton's perfectly preserved skull belonged to a 26-year-old woman who died during the last ice age on the edge of a giant prehistoric lake which once formed around an area now occupied by the sprawling suburbs of Mexico City. Scientists from Liverpool's John Moores University and Oxford's Research Laboratory of Archaeology have dated the skull to about 13,000 years old, making it...
