    The discovery of the Americas has for centuries been credited to the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, but ancient markings carved into rocks around the US could require history to be rewritten. Researchers have discovered ancient scripts that suggest Chinese explorers may have discovered America long before Europeans arrived there. They have found pictograms etched into the rocks around the country that appear to belong of an ancient Chinese script. John Ruskamp, a retired chemist and amateur epigraph researcher from Illinois, discovered the unusual markings while walking in the Petroglyph National Monument in Albuquerque, He claims they indicate ancient people from...

    It’s time to talk seriously about the energy industry in New Mexico. And you have some work to do. Whether your business is directly involved in this industry, it’s very much tied to its outcomes — and right now, there’s much concern about that in the state. After all, some 30 percent of New Mexico’s tax base comes from oil and gas. And you’ve read the headlines we’ve been reporting on how that sector is faring. If you haven’t, let me recap — it’s a fracking mess. The price of oil dropping more than a year ago has resulted in...

    New Mexico’s oil and gas industry may be in the doldrums now, but state and economic development officials are laying the groundwork for a rapid comeback when markets improve. Gov. Susana Martinez released a new energy plan for New Mexico in September that calls for broad infrastructure development in the state’s Permian Basin in the southeast and the San Juan Basin in the northwest to facilitate oil and gas development. That includes road improvements, new pipelines to transport crude and natural gas, and possibly a new 100-mile rail line running from Interstate 40 in Gallup to Farmington. It also calls...

    Good action movie. Good plot that is coherent and makes sense. The cinematography makes Arizona and Mexico devoid of anything green. I mean trees, shrubs and grass etc. Adding to a haunting feeling. All the vegetation I saw was brown. The Juarez scenes make Juarez look like a pit of hell/ I liked the lack of over acting. I am not a fan of Benecio Del Torro but he does very well here. Josh Brolin does well. Emily Blunt is OK. Ten other actresses could have done just as well. The supporting actors were credible. The assault using night vision...

In announcing Rex's retirement Monday, the department also outlined a sad story. The dog's handler recently retired from the force and though the two have emotionally bonded, the officer couldn't take his work partner home because he has a small child.

    Arizona, long a hotbed of anti-immigrant sentiment, finally swallowed its pride and sent a delegation to Mexico City, a mission designed to beckon Mexican shoppers north. The 2013 trip was known as the apology tour. Last year, California retooled its Mexico City office and hosted the Mexican president for his first U.S. state visit. Following years of acrimonious relationships with Mexico, U.S. states along the Mexican border are finding that a little good-neighbor outreach serves their economic interests. Texas is about to take what some experts call a similar mea culpa journey as Gov. Greg Abbott visits Mexico with a...

In addition to the E.T. cartridges, Joseph Lewandowski found more than 60 other titles including Asteroids, Missile Command, Warlords, Star Raiders, Swordquest, Centipede and Super Breakout.

    On July 16, 1945, the United States Army detonated the worlds first nuclear weapon in New Mexicos Jornada del Muerto desert. The test, code-named Trinity, was a success, unleashing an explosion with the energy of about 20 kilotons of TNT and beginning the nuclear age. Since then, nearly 2,000 nuclear tests have been performed. Most of these took place during the 1960s and 1970s. When the technology was new, tests were frequent and often spectacular, and they led to the development of newer, more deadly weapons. Since the 1990s, there have been efforts to limit the testing of nuclear weapons,...

The protests, at the state Capitol in Santa Fe and at Planned Parenthood clinics in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, were a spinoff of the recent national furor over secretly recorded videos posted to YouTube, showing organization officials talking about providing fetal tissue and organs for research in exchange for payment. Anti-abortion groups have seized on the videos as evidence of what one rally speaker called the scandal of selling...

On a train to California, where he was going to start a video production business, he had his $16,000 in life savings seized by the Drug Enforcement Agency under the mere claimed suspicion that it was going to be used as drug money.

    Been gone for three weeks. No phone. No newspaper. No Wi-Fi. No TV. At peace with the world. Now I'm back and decided to see what was going on in the world. Wish I hadn't. First thing I see is the world has gone mad! MAD! Tornado hit where I live! Murder in Tennessee! Iran! Obama! Queers! Confederate Flag! Madness, MADNESS! Plus the area back home has 98 degree temps with 75% humidity.

    "Breaking Bad" actor Steven Michael Quezada is jumping in a heated race for county commissioner in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    Coach is Right ^ | 7/18/15 | John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
    From the Conservative Tribune: Right now American conservatives are arguing over the idea that the US should provide at least a minimum safety net for citizens who fall on economic hard times and need assistance to get back on their feet. One thing conservatives are not arguing about, however, is the idea that too many freeloaders consider such assistance an entitlement and abuse it for as long as they can. The use of food stamps is a case in point. More and more families use food stamps as their primary means of receiving not only groceries but also questionable items...

    Here's what we know: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed in 1953 for selling U.S. nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union after one of the most sensational Cold War-era espionage trials. They were convicted in 1951 owing, largely, to the testimony of David Greenglass, Ethel Rosenberg's brother. Here's what we don't know: How credible Greenglass' testimony was in court. Greenglass himself spent nearly a decade in prison for his role in the conspiracy. The Army sergeant stole nuclear intelligence from Los Alamos, N.M., and said he passed it on to the Rosenbergs. At the trial, he said Ethel Rosenberg typed...

    Six New Mexico teens face murder charges after authorities say one of them gunned down a 60-year-old man in his driveway while the group was breaking into cars and homes in a neighborhood. Prosecutors said those four were charged as serious youthful offenders, meaning their cases will proceed as if they were adults - something Gerecke's family called for during the news conference. Heather Alter, Gerecke's daughter, said her father did not deserve to be executed. 'I want to address the parents of these animals,' she added. 'Where were you? Why did you let your children run the streets at...
