    A new caravan formed in Honduras with about 2,500 migrants traveling toward the U.S.- Mexico border. Saturday the Mexican National Guard stepped up and honored the “safe third country” agreement. The migrants were denied entry into Mexico at the Guatemala-Mexico border. Last November the Trump administration entered into a series of regional agreements with countries including Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The goal is to reduce the burden of Central American migrant caravans arriving at the U.S. border. Migrants are being returned to Guatemala, sent back to their home country, or allowed to enter the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP)...

    As a new migrant caravan makes its way through Central America with the final goal of reaching the U.S., Mexico announced this week that it will not allow passage. Mexico’s Secretary of Interior Olga Sanchez Cordero said no visas or permissions for the caravan will be provided. “We will not have a transit visa or safe passage,” Sanchez Cordero told Expansion Politica. “There will be special enforcement and there will be immigration agents.” However, if caravan migrants want to stay in Mexico, procedures are available. “Mexico is not a country of transit that gives passage, it is a country that...

    On the heels of the city's first case of measles in 20 years, another vaccine-preventable disease, rubella, has been confirmed in Austin. Austin Public Health says this is the first case of rubella in Travis County since 1999. Rubella is covered by the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. While Austin/Travis County has a relatively high vaccination rate, there are pockets of communities where vaccination opt-outs bring herd immunity to an unstable status. Rubella is less contagious than measles, but the virus has similar symptoms and is contracted the same way. Rubella is spread mainly through droplets that come from...

    Gloria Romanorum ^ | August 17, 2019 | Florentius
    On August 18, in anno Domini 472, the powerful generalissimo of the Western Roman Empire, Ricimer, passed from this life. A barbarian of noble birth, half Visigothic and half Suevian, Ricimer first appears in history as a soldier in the Western Roman army under the command of Flavius Aetius. It is in this capacity that he became allied with Majorian, another follower of Aetius. Both men, it seems, participated in the campaigns of Aetius against the Franks, though Majorian later had a falling out with the great commander prior to his famous victory over Attila. After the assassination of Aetius...

The country of almost 125 million now sees as many as 100 killings per day nationwide,” reports the Associated Press [link to URL]. “The 17,608 killings in the first half of 2019 is the most since comparable records began being kept in 1997,...
