 AT&T introduces unlimited calling to Mexico  AT&T introduces unlimited calling to Mexico

The international calling package was e....

The president declared job done.....

 Comet Lovejoy will be visible during January!

Comet Lovejoy will be visible during January!
Although spectacular comets have been rare recently, a steady stream of more modest ones has kept our observing juices flowing. Case in point is Comet Lovejoy, which raced north in late December and that is nicely placed for evening viewing now in January. The comet should glow at 4th magnitude this month and could be viewed using binoculars or a small telescope. Lovejoy is bolting out from under Lepus the Hare constellation in early January and will arrive near the foot of Andromeda the....

 Reasons why the Latino Pope has made a difference



Reasons why the Latino Pope has made a difference
Ever since Pope Francis started his papacy in 2013 he has proved to be very different than his predecessors. The first Latino and first Jesuit pope has won over the world with his tendency to stray from tradition, his focus on humility and service and, most recently, his direct approach to calling out The Curia, the administrative body of the Roman Catholic Church, for their lack of introspection and committing "terrorism of gossip," among other ailments. In less than two years the Arge....

Pope Francis played key role in US-Cuba accord
A personal appeal by Pope Francis played a key role in finalizing a deal to open relations between the United States and Cuba for the first time in 53 years. Pope Francis raised the issue with Obama when the U.S. president visited the Vatican in March. And in early summer, the pontiff sent separate letters to Obama and Castro urging them to end their decades-long freeze. The letter invited the leaders to "resolve humanitarian questions of common interest, including the situation of certain....

President Obama’s historic move on Cuba
President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro surprised the world by announcing that the U.S. will work toward establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba and easing an embargo that has been in place for almost a year longer than Obama has been alive.

Following months of secret negotiations with the Cuban government, President Obama announced sweeping changes to normalize rel....

President Obama defends executive actions of the criticism
President Barack Obama is shrugging off Republican criticism of his actions to lift the threat of deportation from millions of immigrants living undocumented in the United States.

Obama signs executive action delaying deportations
On November 21, determined to go it alone, President Obama went to Las Vegas, Nevada to sign an executive order granting “deferred action” to two undocumented immigrant groups-parents of United States citizens or legal permanent residents who have been in the country for five years, and young people who were brought into the country illegally as of 2010. President Obama signed two executive actions that would delay deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants. The president, who si....

Since Eisenhower, Executive Action used for immigration
When President Barack Obama signed the executive action to make immigration reforms, he was following the lead of several other presidents. Every U.S. president since at least 1956 has granted temporary immigration relief of some form. President Ronald Reagan and his successor George H.W. Bush extended amnesty to family members who were not covered by the last major overhaul of immigration law in 1986. Those two presidents have acted unilaterally on immigration and both were Republican....
