    Mobile Passport or Global Entry

    A few years ago, I landed in Houston on a flight from Honduras and found the 2nd longest line I’ve ever encountered winding toward us from Immigration. Fun! I know there were thousands of arrivals in line. The line shuffled steady but slowly forward. While doing the u-turns in the cordoned maze, I noticed a sign advertising Mobile Passport with a claim of quicker processing.

    California's expansive forests have experienced a profound tree die-off since 2010, exacerbated by a long drought between 2012 and 2015.

    There is a risk of work stoppages due to lack of natural gas: IP

    If in the next two weeks the supply of natural gas is not regularized, the national industry could stop production and even lead to the closure of companies and thus cause unemployment, warned the leaders of the Confederation of Industrial Chambers (Concamin) and the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (Canacintra), Francisco Cervantes and Enoch Castellanos, respectively.

    The representatives of the national production and processing plant affirmed that several companies operate at 30% of their capacity due to the lack of supply of natural gas, which puts "a critical situation to the industry", from the north, the southeast and West of the country, which is aggravated by the closure of the Texas-Tuxpan pipeline.

    Opinion: Experiencing Sonoyta speed limits, or grin and bear it, hombre

    So, I’m not certain the recommendation to pay a traffic fine at the local police station is still a valid suggestion or lessens police corruption. In our case, it wouldn’t have made any difference. Actually, it would have been a lot easier, and taken less time, to simply pay the traffic cop directly and go on.
