    The best cities to live in Mexico in 2019
    As it happens in this type of rankings, there is more than one list that aims to publicize the cities that are the best in Mexico. Some of these lists consider aspects such as opportunities to do business, tourism level, access to certain life satisfiers, etc., so that sometimes only business or political promotion aspects are considered to determine an evaluation, but they are left out. the most interesting: the perception of the people who live in the cities.

    In the following list, the company that developed it is Mexican and considered comparative information, current and methodologically valid to measure the perception of the quality of life of those who inhabit those cities.

    A New Journey to San Miguel de Allende
    The father of three was deported from the USA last September. His wife and his young children left behind. But now they are packing their bags – again – for a different journey.

    A Georgia mom was forced into single parenthood when her husband, Omar Rogel, was deported last September. He came to the U.S. from Mexico on a family visa when he was just 3 years old, and was deported more than 30 years later. His wife Alena Orwin says her husband has spent a big part of his life trying to become a U.S. citizen. His mother, a naturalized U.S. citizen filed a petition for his visa in 2003 and his wife filed one in 2017. A year after that petition, in 2018, Omar received a letter from the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “I honestly got excited, because I thought it was an interview for his visa,” Alena told 11Alive’s Elwyn Lopez last August.

    The DC-10 Got Over Its Grounding, Why Won’t The 737 MAX?
    There are a number of similarities between the grounding of the DC-10 back in 1979 and that of the Boeing 737 MAX more recently. The DC-10 recovered from its issues, so why does everyone think it will be more difficult to return the 737 MAX to service? Simple Flying investigates.

    The last time the FAA ordered a temporary grounding of a particular aircraft model due to a fatal accident was back in 1979 when the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 was grounded for two months. Although some passengers alluded to the DC-10 being a ‘jinxed’ aircraft, the majority still happily flew on it for many years, and even today it’s in use, often as the MD-11, for freight operations around the world.

    So, if the DC-10 recovered from its grounding successfully, why shouldn’t the 737 MAX too?
