  3. Looks like all the organic veggies are prepackaged.
  4. Seems to me to be a very high end store. Many pictures of wine and prepared foods and cakes, etc. Didnt see loose vegetables. The fish case looked real good. I bet that place is expensive. Never seen a whole foods look that elegant.

  7. The Mexican peso slumped to its lowest level in nine months today, falling 1% to 19.725 pesos to the U.S. dollar just before midday. News agency Reuters cited high inflation, the threat to investment posed by fiscal reform in the United States and corruption scandals in the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) — that could play into the hands of leading presidential contender Andrés Manuel López Obrador — as reasons for the drop. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/peso-falls-to-19-725-lowest-since-march/

  9. Net Neutrality abolished in the states

    AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, and Time Warner have a “natural monopoly” since they’ve simply been at it the longest. While the Telecommunications Act of 1996 attempted to incentivize competition to upset these established businesses, it didn’t take into account the near impossibility of doing so. As Howard Zinn wrote in A People’s History of the United States, the Telecommunications Act of 1996 simply “enabled the handful of corporations dominating the airwaves to expand their power further.” https://psmag.com/news/why-is-american-internet-so-slow The U.S. ranks 28th in the world in mobile internet speeds We have slower mobile internet than Greece.

  11. Net Neutrality abolished in the states

    Carlos Slim is basically the person in Mexico that will have the power to bring or nor bring net neutrality here since his company https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/América_Móvil owns Telmex with over 20 million subscribers. this article is from 2013.... https://www.wired.com/2013/05/when-it-comes-to-internet-access-and-cost-were-just-like-mexico/
  12. I am not sure if it will hurt Mexico internet users but just an FYI. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines on Thursday to repeal landmark 2015 rules that intended to ensure a free and open Internet, as protesters gather to oppose the change. The 3-2 ruling sets up a court fight over a move that opponents fear will recast the digital landscape. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5180015/Protesters-gather-U-S-regulators-meet-end-net-neutrality.html
