  1. On my particular model I press down and hold the "alt gr" key immediately to the right of the space bar and then press the "2".
  2. On my particular model I press the "alt gr" key immediately to the right of the space bar and at the same time the "2".
  3. Truly remarkable, considering that New York City and Philadelphia were the national capitals during Washington's administration and construction had not even begun on the White House. It sounds like you have a confused recollection from reading something about the Whiskey Rebellion.
  4. True, but the U. S. Mint has done it more than once in recent years with their various dollar coins.
  5. The election turned out just as had been predicted for many months. I imagine that any effect on the exchange rate has taken place gradually over that time.
  6. I see it was not higher (or lower, depending on how you look at it) than right now, but above 19 most of the month.
  7. The peso has been quoted lower than that as much as two weeks ago on XE (almost 20/1), this is not a sudden occurrence.
  8. The link below, from a year ago and before the latest minimum wage increase, said that up to seven million workers in Mexico make the minimum wage, which at that time was 1,726 pesos per month or roughly $96 U. S. at that time. This would be for a six day work week, eight hours per day if a day shift. http://www.excelsior.com.mx/nacional/2016/11/25/1130448
  9. I assumed the post was from the emperor needing repairs for his new clothes.
  10. In the past the most calamitous drops have been followed by a short and slight rebound, which was probably why you were advised to buy at 22/1.
  11. Down, as it has done since 1976. The dollar itself is down at the moment against other major currencies, which conceals some of the peso's slide.
  12. The peso has charted a sawtooth downward curve against the dollar since about 1976 and I think it is a safe prediction it will continue that way over the long term.
  13. The more usual situation in Mexico is that there are "aviadores" who appear on the payroll but not on the job, only landing to collect their pay.
  14. If that is the context then it indeed means that the parents were not married. I'm surprised that nearly all births were so listed, though.
  15. Euro coins and banknotes did not go into circulation in Spain until that date but Spain was effectively on the euro since several years earlier. The peseta had been frozen in relation to other euro zone currencies, and all prices were shown in both pesetas and euros.
  16. http://semanariolaguna.com/26048/ At about 4:00pm there was a confrontation between armed subjects and members of the Regional "Fuerza Única" police unit at Kilometer 5 on the highway to Jocotepec. A Tundra pickup was seized there and reportedly five persons were shot down. Apparently the armed civilians opened fire on the Fuerza Única officers. First reports are that the operation by Fuerza Única was begun due to the disappearance yesterday of a state policeman who worked at Casa Jalisco, the residence of Governor Aristóteles Sandoval. According to early reports, in the confrontation in the Delegation of El Molino at least two people fled on a motorcycle and personnel from the State Prosecutor's Office deployed a search operation in the area. After the clash the Prosecutor's Office seized a pickup, a shoulder weapon, five short weapons and two grenades, the newspaper El Informador reported. According to the police officer who was interviewed, Jocotopec Municipal Police did not take part in the confrontation between the gunmen and Fuerza Única because when they arrived at the scene of the shootout they were prohibited from entering. Five people died in that confrontation. According to sources in the State Prosecutor's Office, the state policeman was last seen leaving his home in the community of Huejotitán, Jocotepec and was found dead in the vicinity of where the shootout occurred, reported Notisistema. The young man on the motorcycle has still not been located. It is not known if the two incidents are related.
  17. Wouldn't a tax on money sent outside the U. S. violate the "no export tax" provision of the Constitution?
  18. It seems this happens every year without fail somewhere in Mexico.
  19. The only alternative would be by ship as non-citizens of Mexico can't be deported to that country, except in the highly unusual situation that they are legal residents of that country and the Mexican government accepts them.
  20. The state attorney general said that that conversation was with a member of the uniformed state agency known as Fuerza Única. What is being discussed here is the municipal police.
