‘Narcos’ star unveils ‘first resistance film’ of Bolsonaro era

"Narcos" star Wagner Moura premiered his new movie about a 1960s resistance hero Friday, calling it the first Brazilian blockbuster to attack state repression since far-right President Jair Bolsonaro came to power. "Marighella" features Brazilian superstar Seu Jorge as Marxist revolutionary Carlos Marighella, who led an armed rebellion against the military dictatorship until he was gunned down in a police ambush in 1969. Moura, 42, said the film, his directorial debut, had been in the works since 2013 but its release had dovetailed with a deeply polarised moment in his home country and around the globe.

SACRAMENTO, California --- California is likely to sue President Donald Trump over his emergency declaration to fund a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, the state attorney general said Friday.

Locals find monarch colony in Mexico after yearslong search

AMANALCO DE BECERRA, Mexico --- For years, park rangers and conservationists working around Mexico's Nevado de Toluca volcano chased rumors of a monarch butterfly colony that wintered high in a forest of oyamel firs in some corner of the 132,000-acre (53,419-hectare) national reserve. Local woodsmen would report seeing some of the butterflies fluttering about and scouting teams would scramble to trek into the forest. They eventually narrowed their search to a swath of communal lands more than 10,000 feet (3,048 meters) above sea level on the northwestern side of the park, but still couldn't find the colony. "It was like an urban legend," said Gloria Tavera Alonso, a regional...Keep on reading: Locals find monarch colony in Mexico after yearslong search.....»»

Border deal: Trump falls short on wall, Dems get less too

WASHINGTON --- The undisputed grand prize at stake for President Donald Trump in the border security talks was money for his proposed wall with Mexico. He flat out got much less than he demanded. But to clinch the deal that congressional leaders hope to approve this week --- and that they're prodding Trump to sign or risk a new government shutdown --- Democrats gave ground, too. Especially in their bid to fetter the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency's ability to detain unauthorized immigrants. It's the kind of accord that, for now, has elicited few bellows of triumph by either side. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Tuesday called it "a pretty g...Keep on reading: Border deal: Trump falls short on wall, Dems get less too.....»»
