    In what appears to have been a routine patrol, 30 members of Mexico's National Guard were caught off guard and ambushed from an unsuspecting local house. After repelling the initial attack, authorities soon discovered Ovidio GuzmŠn Lůpez, son of "El Chapo" and suspected co-leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, hiding inside the home. Chaos quickly ensued as gunmen blocked streets with burning vehicles. The scenes that unfolded were reminiscent of a war zone.

    In May, Jack Peterson went on a Tinder date. With a woman. They ate at an Italian restaurant in downtown Chicago, and made casual chitchat about themselves. It was an ordinary date in every way. But for 19-year-old Peterson, it was an achievement of epic proportions. Until recently, Peterson identified as an ¬ďincel,¬Ē or involuntarily celibate. Incels believe that, due to reasons entirely beyond their control ‚Äē too short, too bald, too weak a jawline ‚Äē they cannot attract a female partner. They believe they¬íre doomed to remain alone, forever. For many incels, this fatalistic worldview is paired with a...

    A civilization in the habitable zone of a dwarf star like Proxima Centauri might find it hard to get into interstellar space with conventional rocketsAlmost all space missions launched so far by our civilization have been based on chemical propulsion. The fundamental limitation here is easy to understand: a rocket is pushed forward by ejecting burnt fuel gases backwards through its exhaust. The characteristic composition and temperature of the burnt fuel set the exhaust speed to a typical value of a few kilometers per second. Momentum conservation implies that the terminal speed of the rocket is given by this exhaust...

    Last week in the dead of night I loaded up my grab and go gear and waited for the appropriate time after night had set in. After spending several hours ensuring nobody was watching I hit the road. I kept to the highways playing the tourist and made my way to the border. As it approached I made sure my speed was kept to the legal limit and there was no reason for the authorities to pull me over. My heart was beating a bit harder than normal as I crossed into a free state and only after I saw...

    I couldnít have imagined that President Obama could do any more harm to the Cuban people before he left office, but I was wrong. With only a week left in his presidency he announced that the long-standing policy of accepting Cubans that flee the Communist island of Cuba by sea ó the policy known as ďwet feet, dry feetĒ ó would change. That policy has been in place since President Clinton declared it so after the horrific debacle of the Clinton administrationís handling of 9-year-old Elian Gonzalez. After the forced deportation of Elian Gonzalez by armed U.S. federal agents under...

    Police in Vietnam's southeast Dong Nai province are searching for more than 200 presumed drug addicts who broke out of a compulsory rehabilitation center. About 560 inmates broke out Sunday, some using fire extinguishers and sticks to break walls and windows, but police recaptured about 330. The center holds 1,481 inmates, about twice the center's capacity. Residents in the province east of Ho Chi Minh City have been urged to stay indoors and lock their doors after inmates began moving through the area. Some officials believe the escaped inmates left the province aboard taxis.
