Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met in Mexico City and discussed the caravan of several thousand people, which set off from Honduras last weekend, and is now at Mexico's border with Guatemala. "It's a challenge that Mexico is facing, and that's how I expressed it to Secretary Pompeo," Videgaray told a news conference alongside his U.S. counterpart. On Friday afternoon, hundreds of the migrants poured through Guatemala's frontier posts toward the closed Mexican border on a bridge spanning the Suchiate River that bisects the two countries, Mexican television footage showed.

Trump is in love with dictators; their “enemies of the people” are his enemies too. There is a long tradition in American politics of presidents copying from the speeches of others, stealing their ideas, recycling their rhetoric. Think of Kennedy’s famed cri de coeur in his inaugural address: “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country,” taken from Khalil Gibran’s book “The New Frontier,” published 36 years before Kennedy took office. Gibran wrote, “Are you a politician asking what your country can do for you, or a zealous one asking what you can do for your country?”Ronald Reagan’s “shining city on a hill,” was taken from John Winthrop’s address in 1630 just before the first group of Massachusetts Bay colonists set sail from Southampton, England to establish a colony in the new world that became the city of Boston. He charged his fellow Puritans "that we shall be as a city upon a hill — the eyes of all people are...

Seattle billionaire philanthropist Paul Allen’s death comes just as his Stratolaunch space venture is counting down to the first flight of the world’s biggest airplane — and lifting the veil on a wide range of space applications. Now it’s up to the Stratolaunch team to make good on the high-flyingest idea from the self-described “Idea Man,” who succumbed to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 65. Heading that team is President and CEO Jean Floyd, who spent decades as a manager and executive at Orbital Sciences Corp. (now part of Northrop Grumman) before joining the venture in 2015.

The two Koreas and the US-led United Nations Command held talks Tuesday on demilitarising a section of the heavily fortified border dividing the peninsula, as a diplomatic thaw gathers pace. "The three parties examined the progress in removing landmines at the Joint Security Area (JSA)...and discussed other practical matters regarding steps toward disarming the area," Seoul's defense ministry said in a statement. The JSA, also known as the truce village of Panmunjom, is the only spot along the tense, 250-kilometre (155-mile) frontier where troops from the two countries stand face to face.

Love is in the air as penguin breeding season begins at the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium in Australia, and one adorable penguin couple is stealing the show. Two male gentoo penguins, Sphen and Magic, became inseparable in the Macquarie Island exhibit, the aquarium explained in a blog post. They were so successful at building a nest together and taking care of a dummy egg that the love birds were given a real penguin egg to incubate. SEE ALSO: Emotional support squirrel gets kicked off airplane Here's a quick look at Sphen and Magic and their nest: The duo has been spending a lot of time together, waddling around the exhibit and going for swims, but the clearest sign of their love was their nest. Gentoo penguins build nests with pebbles when they couple up, and Sphen and Magic gathered more pebbles than any other couple there, according to the aquarium.

Prime Minister Theresa May will not "trap" Britain in an endless customs union with the European Union after Brexit, her office insisted Friday amid growing unease in her cabinet and party that this might be the price of a divorce deal. Negotiations in Brussels have stepped up in recent days ahead of a high-stakes EU summit next week, with both sides seeking a breakthrough less than six months before Brexit in March 2019. May briefed selected members of her cabinet late Thursday on the talks, at which several ministers reportedly expressed deep unease at a plan to avoid frontier checks with EU member Ireland.

You remember when HP tricked its users into downgrading their printers by sending them a fake "security update" that actually made the printers refuse third-party and refilled ink cartridges? Well, now it's Epson's turn. The company's fake software update screwed over owners of many printer models, deceptively reconfiguring their printers so that they could no longer use third-party ink. This violates all kinds of state laws, including the laws of Texas, where an Electronic Frontier Foundation supporter lives; when he tipped us off about the Epson scam, we complained to the Texas Attorney General on his behalf. If you got shafted by Epson and you're in the USA, we want to hear from you, too. With these shenanigans, Epson and HP aren't just engaged in a garden-variety ripoff. Teaching Internet users to mistrust software updates is a dangerous business. In recent years, some of the Internet's most important services have been brought to their knees by malicious software running...

Frontier Airlines thought the idea of an emotional support squirrel was nutty, so they asked the woman who'd brought a bright eyed and bushy tailed companion on board a flight bound for Cleveland to vacate. She refused, so Frontier made all the other passengers deplane so police could escort human and rodent off the plane. The crowd of deplaned passengers jeered and clapped as she was escorted out of the boarding area. From the Daily Beast: As the woman was taken away in a wheelchair, she gave the middle finger to jeering passengers, footage posted on Twitter shows. The flight eventually took off without the woman and her squirrel, but with a two-hour delay. Frontier—which, notably, has at least one plane with a squirrel on its tail—currently forbids “unusual or exotic animals including but not limited to rodents, reptiles, insects, hedgehogs, rabbits, sugar gliders, non-household birds or improperly cleaned and/or animals with foul odor,” and will only allow cats and dogs aft...

The Democrats' newly unveiled "Internet Bill of Rights" enumerates ten rights that the party says it will enshrine in law, ranging from Net Neutrality to data portability to timely notification of breaches to opt-in for data collection, the right to see the data held on you by surveillance capitalists, rights to privacy and to be free from surveillance-driven discrimination, pro-competitive measures and so forth. The Bill was drafted by Silicon Valley Congressman Ro Khanna, who has real bona fides as a progressive Democrat, unafraid to call out the party establishment. But as Kara Swisher points out in the New York Times, the devil is in the details: as statements of principle, the Internet Bill of Rights is an admirable document. Its implementation in law, however, will require enormous care to prevent both loopholes and overreach (see, for example, how a well-intentioned California anti-bot bill posed real free expression risks until it was called out and cleaned up by the Electr...

Israel accuses Hamas of orchestrating the mass-mobilizations to provide cover for attacks and distract from Gaza's economic plight, allegations it denies.
