    ...The issue of Central American caravans — who joins them, how large they are, where they are going, if more are forming — has been a pressing one for both the U.S. and Mexican governments and for communities along the way. In recent days, social media sites have been spreading word of a new caravan scheduled to leave San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on Feb. 16. (snip) ... Mexican authorities announced they were entering a new phase that allows the Central American migrants to apply for the visas in their home countries. They said that Mexico also will begin offering residents...

    When Pope Francis visits Panama this week, he arrives not only as the first Latin American pontiff to visit Central America but as perhaps the world's most prominent advocate for migrants at a time when migration has become a pressing political issue in the region and elsewhere. The Argentine-born son of Italian immigrants has long held the issue dear to his heart and has signaled that it will be a central theme during the trip, which comes as the latest caravan of Central Americans is wending its way toward the U.S.-Mexico frontier. Francis' emphasis on fundamental Christian teaching about welcoming...

    Sarah was abducted as a teen from her local Tesco’s car park and held prisoner for 12 YEARS. Repeatedly raped, beaten, forced into marriage and EIGHT forced abortions whilst police did nothing.

Never even having had a boyfriend, she was forced to marry and was raped minutes later by a man she’d only...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that European Union (EU) member states must be prepared to transfer powers over to Brussels at a debate on the ‘tensions’ between globalisation and national sovereignty. “Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel said, speaking at an event organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday. “In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel said, explaining that — while Germany had given up some of its sovereignty in order to join the EU, national parliaments were in charge of deciding whether to sign up to international treaties.

    PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona man facing a terrorism charge for brandishing a knife in an encounter with a sheriff's sergeant was carrying out a "lone wolf" attack, authorities said Thursday. Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone said at a news conference that 18-year-old Ismail Hamed of Fountain Hills told a dispatcher before the Jan. 7 attack that he had an affiliation with a terror group. Hamed was previously charged with aggravated assault for allegedly throwing rocks at the sergeant ...

    You know the one, with all of the stylishly dressed young women killing it in the workplace, telling you that they’ve “armored up” against an unplanned pregnancy? It’s clever enough, as the Nexplanon implant goes into one’s arm. Unfortunately, Merck (the makers of Nexplanon) may have to come up with another clever slogan for their device, as reports have surfaced that the matchstick-sized implant has a nasty habit of migrating elsewhere in a woman’s body, instead of staying put in her arm. Like other methods of long-acting reversible contraception (or, “LARCs”), the Nexplanon implant is increasingly favored by patients and...

  • Thinking of visiting Japan? From today, there’ll be a tax to pay whenever you leave the country

    01/07/2019 9:55:25 AM PST · by SeekAndFind · 26 replies
    Japan began levying a 1,000 yen (US$9.24) departure tax on Monday, payable by anyone leaving the country by aircraft or ship, in a measure aimed at raising funds to further boost tourism. The International Tourist Tax covers everyone regardless of nationality, from businesspeople to holidaymakers older than two years of age. It will be tacked on to the price of an airline ticket, though those bought and issued before Monday are exempt. Japan’s government estimates that it will make an additional 50 billion yen (US$462 million) from the tax, which it wants to use to improve tourism infrastructure by making...
