Opinion: A Recipe for a Successful Nation
Piers Steel - The Conversation

When you think of the ideal version of your nation, it likely reflects your own values. Those who value friendship over work, for example, experience a different world than their more diligent counterparts. And as it is true for you, so is it true for your country.

Trump Could Make Things Worse After Mexico Quakes
Guadalupe de la Torre - Open Democracy

Trump's threat of imposing an additional tax on remittances sent home by migrants living in the U.S. could have serious consequences for Mexicans – especially now that the country needs as many resources as possible to recover from the recent natural disasters.

Will Native American Day Replace Columbus Day?
Suzy Chaffee - BanderasNews.com

Monday, October 9, was a landmark day for America. South Dakota celebrated 'Native American Day,' followed by the big-hearted cities of Los Angeles, Seattle, Denver, Phoenix, Minneapolis and Austin. Our Native American Olympic Team Foundation salutes these enlightened cities.

Mexico's Road to Recovery After Quakes Will be Long
Morten Wendelbo - The Conversation

In the span of just 11 days, Mexico was devastated by two major earthquakes that destroyed buildings and claimed lives across southern and central Mexico. Long after the dust settles and new buildings are erected, tens of thousands of Mexicans will continue to feel the impact.

Opinion: Earthquakes Expose Mexico's Deep Inequality
Luis Gσmez Romero - The Conversation

Mexico is and always will be a land of earthquakes. Pre-Columbian records report seismic activity attributed to the wrath of gods said to be unhappy about the state of human affairs. Today, quakes still unearth the best and the worst in Mexico.

Opinion: Trump's Tiny Heart and DACA's Repeal
Domenico Maceri - BanderasNews.com

In the presidential campaign, Trump said many times that DACA was illegal and once in office he would repeal it. After eight months at the White House, the 45th president kept his promise. Trump, however, did not do so personally, leaving the task to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Border Wall Will Kill U.S. Jobs, Business, Environment
Deepak Chopra, Kabir Sehgal & Paul Avgerinos

Since Donald Trump threatened to shut down the US government in order to secure funding to build his controversial wall during Tuesday's speech in Arizona, it's a good time to read an op-ed written by Deepak Chopra, who explains why Trump's Mexican border wall should be opposed.

Editorial: Yesterday's Immigrants Better than Today's?
Domenico Maceri - BanderasNews.com

It would be simplistic to say that modern immigrants are treated worse than those who came to the US at the turn of the century. America keeps growing and improving as we've learned to treat immigrants in a more humane way. That doesn't mean everything's rosy for new arrivals.

Environmental Laws Around the World are Under Attack
Bill Laurance - The Conversation

An analysis, led by Sweden's Agricultural University, reveals a rising tide of assaults on environmental safeguards worldwide. Legislation designed to protect wildlife is being rolled back or ignored in all sorts of ways in all sorts of places, according to a new global database of attacks.

Thanks, Mother Earth, for Stowe's Epic Snow Miracle
Suzy Chaffee - BanderasNews.com

Since we can only ski or snowboard on Mexico's volcanoes with a helicopter, some of us miss snow sports and hearing the stories. So here is a story about an amazing miracle I witnessed while skiing in the U.S. last week to show you the power of giving gratitude to Mother Earth.

NAFTA World Cup? Just the Thing to Improve Relations
Arturo Sarukhan - LA Times

For Mexico, the U.S. and Canada, a joint bid for the 2026 World Cup would be about more than just soccer. It would be about shifting mutual perceptions first and foremost, about the three nations becoming better neighbors, and about creating a sense of common purpose.

Reshaping NAFTA Could Be Good for Mexico's Economy
Cecilia Tortajada - The Conversation

Overall, NAFTA has been beneficial to Mexico, Canada and the US alike. Since it was signed in 1994, foreign direct investments in Mexico have averaged 2.6% of GDP (compared to 1% before NAFTA). At present, annual bilateral trade between the US and Mexico is at US$580 billion.

UC Mexico Initiative: Cooperation over Confrontation
Janet Napolitano - Sacramento Bee

I've just returned from three days of talks in Mexico City with leaders in the Mexican government, in public and private education, in energy, and the business sector. At each stop and in every conversation, uncertainty about the Trump administration underpinned the tone.

U.S. Congress Repeals Internet Privacy Protection Rules
Evan Greer - fightforthefuture.org

The U.S. Congress just decimated Internet privacy rules and voted to allow Internet Service Providers to sell your sensitive information without your consent. Slashing these privacy rules means that ISPs will be able to monitor your private information, and sell it to the highest bidder.

Mexico: Land of International Investment Opportunities
Luis Qujano-Axle - internationalbanker.com

When it comes to investment opportunities, Mexico is a good bet. The combination of high technology and a qualified labor force has developed enough industries, such as automotive, appliance, telephonic and others, to become important and, in some cases, the world's major producers.

Suzy 'Stevia' Chaffee - BanderasNews.com
