      MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s president vowed on Saturday to redouble his fight against an epidemic of chronic fuel theft after thieves punctured a pipeline north of Mexico City, causing an explosion that killed at least 66 people and injured 76 others.
      The blast underscored the deadly perils of the fuel-theft racket, which has cost the government billions of dollars a year and has been the target of a weekslong crackdown by the administration of Mexico’s new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
      “Although it hurts a lot, we have to continue with the plan to end fuel theft,” Mr. López Obrador said during a news conference at the presidential palace in Mexico City. “We will not stop. We will eradicate this.”
      The explosion, which occurred Friday night along a pipeline in a rural part of the state of Hidalgo, was particularly deadly because the promise of free gasoline had drawn hundreds of residents to the breach in the pipeline.

      BOULEVARD, California, EE.UU. (AP) — Setenta y siete personas que ingresaron a Estados Unidos de forma ilegal fueron encontradas atestadas en un camión cerca de la frontera de California con México bajo un calor sofocante, y el conductor fue encausado por transportar a personas para obtener un beneficio económico, informaron las autoridades.
      Cinco menores estaban entre las personas que fueron halladas el lunes por la tarde en el compartimiento de carga de un camión que estaba pintado de café para asemejarse a un vehículo del servicio de mensajería UPS, de acuerdo con las autoridades.
      La Patrulla de Caminos de California detuvo al camión debido a que no tenía placas y estaba zigzagueando sobre una autopista de la pequeña y desértica comunidad de Boulevard, en el condado de San Diego, a 8 kilómetros (5 millas) de distancia de la frontera.
      Un agente de la Patrulla Fronteriza que pasaba por la zona se detuvo y le ofreció su ayuda al elemento de la patrulla de caminos, indicó el periódico The San Diego Union-Tribune, citando una denuncia penal.

      The Church in Mexico has recently consolidated dozens of wards and branches in several major cities during the past four months. As a result, there has been a net decrease of approximately 30 wards and branches during this time - the largest net decrease in congregations in Mexico ever reported by the Church. Although this may sound like a large number, this decrease constitutes only a 1.5% decline in the number of wards and branches in Mexico during this period. 

      Local members report that the primary reason that these congregation consolidations have occurred has been due to efforts by the Mexico Area to better utilize meetinghouses (e.g. church attendance filling 80% or more of available seating). Members indicate that the Church has many meetinghouses that are not fully utilized by congregations due to a lack of active members. The number of active members in the Church in Mexico has not appeared to noticeably increase or decrease within the past five years based upon hundreds of reports I have received from returned missionaries and local members in Mexico. However, the Church in several areas of the world has recently placed an increased emphasis on the organization of wards with larger numbers of active members in order to better staff leadership positions and meet member socialization needs. Thus, these recent changes appear to reflect a movement to have the size and functionality of international LDS congregations to become more comparable to those in the United States (e.g. 150-300 active members per ward). In the past, the Church has generally maintained significantly smaller congregations outside of North America (e.g. 50-125 active members per ward).

      These congregational consolidations in Mexico indicate significant, ongoing concerns in regards to member activity, convert attrition, and leadership development. Unlike many other Latin American countries, the Church in Mexico has appeared unable to postpone the creation of new wards until congregations increase in the number of active members to the point that meetinghouses are better utilized. These developments are even more considering when considering that the Church in Mexico operates 34 missions and has not yet reported any noticeable improvements within the past five years in regards to growth. The Church in Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador has appeared capable of postponing the creation of new units, and usually avoiding the consolidation of smaller or weaker units, until membership maximizes meetinghouse space so that congregations become more analogous in size and functionality to those in the United States and Canada. For example, reports from members in Peru note that most wards currently have 100-250 active members, whereas in the past most wards had significantly fewer active members (e.g. usually 50-125 active members). These recent growth trends in Mexico will likely significantly affect worldwide LDS growth trends, especially considering that the Church operates 6.5% of its worldwide congregations and claims 9.0% of its worldwide membership in Mexico.

      Durante la primera asamblea anual, más de 10 mil Testigos de Jehová escucharon ponencias, presenciaron representaciones bíblicas y reflexionaron sobre el tema “No se rinda”, en las instalaciones del Inforum Irapuato.
      Gerardo Martínez Olivares, jefe de comunicación de la congregación, señaló que el pasado sábado tuvieron la participación de 4 mil 426 personas, mientras que el domingo fueron 5 mil 580 los que asistieron a conocer el tema.
      Refirió que a través de la proyección de la película “Acuérdense de la esposa Lot”, dieron un mensaje práctico referente al materialismo, que los integrantes de las congregaciones podrán retomar en la asamblea de este fin de semana.
      “Los asistentes escucharon muchas de las referencias que aparecen en la biblia sobre el aguante, los oradores mencionaron a los asistentes que para llevar vidas felices es imprescindible no rendirse ante las adversidades comunes de nuestro tiempo”, dijo.
      Agregó que una de las actividades más significativas fue el bautizo, donde 58 personas decidieron convertirse en Testigos de Jehová, con el objetivo de reforzar su fe cristiana y sumarse al análisis de las palabras de Jesucristo.
      “En términos generales se mostró como el aguante puede profundizar la espiritualidad, mejorar la vida familiar y traer felicidad”, enfatizó.
       Asimismo Martínez Olivares señaló que se espera que en las 2 asambleas restantes, los días 9 al 11 y 16 al 18 de junio tengan el mismo éxito, a fin de lograr fortalecer los lazos de unidad y amistad de los asistentes.

      Como efecto secundario del gasolinazo, sube el precio de los alimentos. Especialistas advirtieron a Infobae que crecerá la pobreza y se dificultará el acceso a la comida para el sector más vulnerable de la población

       

      "Se viene un aumento de todo, muchas cosas ya están más caras: la tortilla, el huevo, la leche… desde que empezó el año ya no alcanza", dice este jubilado que al mes tiene un pensión equivalente a 109 dólares, 15 menos de lo que necesita para cubrir la canasta alimentaria básica mensual.
        Sabe que sus ingresos no son suficientes para completar su alimentación, pero también está consciente de que en unos pocos días tendrá que comer menos o reducir el gasto en otras cosas porque con el llamado Gasolinazo los expertos estiman que los precios de los alimentos registren un incremento de entre 20 y 40%, lo que pone a los 24 millones de mexicanos que subsisten con entre uno y dos salarios mínimos a un paso del umbral del hambre, coinciden expertos consultados por Infobae.
      A otros 26 millones de mexicanos se les considera en situación de "vulnerabilidad", es decir, que están en riesgo de caer en pobreza extrema.
      A partir del 1° de enero las gasolinas en México registraron un aumento de entre 15 y 20% que será el primero de muchos que se registrarán en el año como parte de una estrategia gubernamental para quitar el subsidio y liberalizar el precio del combustible.
      "Todo va a subir porque simplemente todos los productos necesitan ser transportados, algunos cámaras de frío, y como hasta ahora los comerciantes habían estado absorbiendo el costo el aumento del dólar, con el gasolinazo ya no van a poder contener los precios y las personas más pobres son las que van a quedar desamparados: estos 24 millones de personas que ganan entre uno y dos salarios mínimos corren un gran riesgo de pasar a una situación ya no de pobreza sino de hambre", señala María del Rosario Castro, responsable del Observatorio de Precios de El Barzón.

      Last week hundreds of activists took over a major toll highway in the state of Mexico and allowed drivers to pass through free of charge.  Farmworkers and agricultural producers took over municipal offices in the state of Chihuahua and in one occasion forced the municipal workers to evacuate. These are just two examples of the mass actions – which include demonstrations of tens of thousands – rising up all throughout Mexico causing the closure of gas stations, municipal buildings and highways.
      Since January 1, thousands of Mexicans – adolescents, workers from all sectors, union leaders and farmers – have taken to the streets to protest the 20 percent hike in gasoline prices. The price hike comes at a time when 45 percent of the population is living in poverty. As a TeleSur reporter described it, the 20 percent price hike means that it would take the equivalent of 12 days of a minimum wage salary to fill a tank of gas. Much of the population makes even less than the minimum wage, making this price a hike an outrageous violation of the rights of the people.
      The government’s repression against the uprising has been fierce. At least six people have been killed, and hundreds more wounded and arrested. Despite these attacks, the struggle continues.
      Since Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto took office in 2012, his neoliberal policies and initiatives have caused a downward spiral in the quality of life for many Mexicans, especially the poorest. Under Peña Nieto, the number of people living in poverty increased by 2 million, unemployment and state repression, as witnessed in the cases of Ayotzinapa and the teacher protests early in 2016, have reached new extremes. While the Mexican people are suffering, Peña Nieto has insisted on pushing through neoliberal policies that benefit the capitalists while furthering the people’s suffering and poverty.
      The 20 percent price hike on gasoline is just his latest attack. In December 2015, Peña Nieto announced that PEMEX, the national petroleum company, would be privatized in order to allow for other gasolines companies to compete in the market. What this meant was that the government would remove the fixed price on gasoline and would instead be sold at market rate to the people.
      The privatization of Mexico’s oil industry has been in gestation for many years. The U.S. government has played a key role in pushing American puppet Peña Nieto and the Mexican oligarchy in this direction. With PEMEX being deregulated and privatized, its reserves are up for grabs.
      The large U.S oil companies are waiting for their chance to gain control of these reserves and some companies have already begun to. It is a process that will greatly benefit these major corporations given that Mexico has one of the largest oil natural gas reserves in Latin America. This is just an attempt by capitalists to take hold of the resources that they had not yet been able to seize.
      The price hike has already had a terrible effect on the Mexican people. It is predicted that it will soon have devastating effects on the cost of food and employment.
      We stand in solidarity with the Mexican people who are protesting against the Mexican oligarchy and greedy American oil tycoons. We stand with them as they fight for the energy resources that belong to them. We support their right to demonstrate their outrage and demand that the government make better decisions regarding their livelihood.

      Experts welcome news of successful mitochondrial transfer but caution against operating in countries beyond regulations

      The world’s first baby to be born from a new procedure that combines the DNA of three people appears to be healthy, according to doctors in the US who oversaw the treatment.
      The baby was born on 6 April after his Jordanian parents travelled to Mexico where they were cared for by US fertility specialists.
      Doctors led by John Zhang, from the New Hope Fertility Center in New York, decided to attempt the controversial procedure of mitochondrial transfer in the hope that it would give the couple a healthy child.
      While many experts welcomed news of the birth, some raised concerns that the doctors had left the US to perform the procedure beyond the reach of any regulatory framework and without publishing details of the treatment.
      Speaking to the New Scientist, Zhang said he went to Mexico where “there are no rules” and insisted that doing so was right. “To save lives is the ethical thing to do,” he said.
      Mitochondrial transfer was legalised in the UK in 2015 but so far no other country has introduced laws to permit the technique. The treatment is aimed at parents who have a high risk of passing on debilitating and even fatal genetic diseases to their children.

      The boy’s mother carries genes for the fatal Leigh syndrome, which harms the developing nervous system. The faults affect the DNA in mitochondria, the tiny battery-like structures that provide cells with energy, and are passed down from mother to child.
      Ten years after the couple married, the wife became pregnant but she lost the baby in the first of four miscarriages. The couple had a baby girl in 2005 who died at the age of six, and later, a second child who lived for only eight months. Tests on the wife showed that while she was healthy, about one-quarter of her mitochondria carried the genes for Leigh syndrome.
      When the couple approached Zhang for help, he decided to try the mitochondrial transfer procedure. He took the nucleus from one of the woman’s eggs and inserted it into a healthy donor’s egg that had had its own nucleus removed. He then fertilised the egg with the husband’s sperm.
      The US team created five embryos but only one developed normally. This was implanted into the mother and the baby was born nine months later.
      The baby is not the first child to be born with DNA from three people. In the 1990s, fertility doctors tried to boost the quality of women’s eggs by injecting cytoplasm, the cellular material that contains mitochondria, from healthy donor eggs. The procedure led to several babies being born with DNA from the parents plus the healthy donor. Some of the children developed genetic disorders and the procedure was banned.
      Speaking about the latest case, Dusko Ilic, a stem cell scientist at King’s College London, said: “Without much ado, it appears the first mitochondrial donation baby was born three months ago. This was an ice-breaker. The baby is reportedly healthy. Hopefully, this will tame the more zealous critics, accelerate the field, and we will witness soon the birth of the first mitochondrial donation baby in the UK.”
      But some questions remained, he said. “By performing the treatment in Mexico, the team were not subject to the same stringent regulation as some other countries would insist on. We have no way of knowing how skilful or prepared they were, and this may have been a risky thing to do.
      “On the other hand, we have what appears to be a healthy baby. Because it was successful, fewer questions will be raised, but it is important that we still ask them.
      “Was this the first time ever they performed the technique or were there other attempts and they are reporting this one because it was successful?
      “This and other important questions remain unanswered because this work has not been published and the rest of the scientific community has been unable to examine it in detail. It’s vital that that happens soon.”
      Alison Murdoch, a fertility doctor at Newcastle University, said: “If this baby has been born as suggested then that would be great news. The translation of mitochondrial donation to a clinical procedure is not a race but a goal to be achieved with caution to ensure both safety and reproducibility.”
      Details of the birth are due to be presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine meeting in Salt Lake City in October. 
      Doug Turnbull, a neurology professor at Newcastle University who pioneered mitochondrial transfer in the UK, said the technique offered hope to mothers who carried mitochondrial DNA mutations.
      “There have been extensive discussions in the UK to ensure that families with mitochondrial disease get the best possible advice about their reproductive options and that any new IVF-based technique is appropriately regulated and funded. This abstract gives very little information about the technique used, the follow up of the child or the ethical approval process.”
      This article was amended on 27 September 2016 to remove the names of some of the parties involved, because information changed about whether permission to name had been given.

      Fue mi culpa al final, el quererte de más y tan sólo recibir la mitad… 
      Bajé la guardia y me expuse al dolor, caricias falsas, frío en la habitación 
      Bajé la guardia y aposté el corazón, tantas palabras y ninguna emoción 
      Yo te quise y no te bastó y aún te amo a pesar de que has sido mi peor error.

      MEXICO CITY, Mexico—While the world awaits a Zika vaccine, the first ever injection against dengue fever is spreading, with Mexico becoming next week the latest country where people can get the shot.
      French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi is presenting its Dengvaxia vaccine to doctors at an event in eastern Mexico on Saturday, while people aged nine to 45 will be able to get the shot from their physicians from Monday.
      After public programs were launched in the Philippines and Brazil’s state of Parana this year, the company is rolling out the vaccine in the private sector in Mexico while health authorities prepare a public immunization plan.
      The head of Sanofi’s dengue program, Guillaume Leroy, told Agence France-Presse in Mexico City that the company already has one million doses ready in the country.
      Leroy said it was difficult to estimate how much the vaccine will cost in Mexico as it will depend on the distribution networks and the public vaccination program.
      The mosquito-borne virus costs governments around the world $18 billion a year, Leroy said.
      “We estimate that in Mexico and in other countries that the benefits will outweigh the costs of the (vaccine) intervention,” he said.
      The company will have a “fair policy throughout the world and affordable for health authorities.”
      Zika vaccine
      Mexico was the first country in the world to give regulatory approval to the vaccine in December last year. Seven others followed suit, including Brazil, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Paraguay, Peru and the Philippines.
      Sanofi is awaiting authorizations in 18 other countries.
      The fast-growing disease infects as many as 400 million people every year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), which has endorsed the vaccine.
      Sanofi’s research and development work took 20 years, costing more than 1.5 billion euros ($1.7 billion).
      Now, Sanofi and other pharmaceutical firms are racing to find a weapon against Zika, which like dengue is carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito.
      “Developing a vaccine against Zika will be easier after developing a vaccine against dengue,” Leroy said, noting that the viruses share genetic similarities.
      “All these investments (on dengue) through more than 100 collaborations worldwide allow us today to gain a lot of time on different vaccinal approaches” against Zika, he said.
      Some 70 countries and territories have reported local mosquito-borne Zika transmission, with Brazil by far the hardest hit and the WHO declaring it a public health emergency.
      Zika causes only mild symptoms for most people such as fever and a rash, but infected pregnant women can give birth to babies with microcephaly, a deformation marked by abnormally small brains and heads.
      – Vaccine concerns –
      Scientists had also long been stumped by dengue, which has four separate strains, forcing researchers to find a drug able to fight all of them at once.
      Dengue can trigger a crippling fever, along with muscle and joint pain.
      But clinical tests on 40,000 people from 15 countries found Dengvaxia can immunize two thirds of people aged nine years and older, rising to 93 percent for the more severe form of the disease, dengue hemorrhagic fever.
      It was also found to reduce the risk of hospitalization by 80 percent.
      Brazil launched a public immunization program for 500,000 people in Parana in August, while the Philippines has injected 489,000 public school children aged nine since it became in April the first country to use the vaccine.
      Philippines health department spokesman Eric Tayag said authorities followed WHO recommendations, which say it should not be given to children under nine years old.
      “We are tracking each child” to look for any sign of dengue or side effects, Tayag said.
      Some scientists have voiced concerns about studies showing that the vaccine could give dengue to people who have never had the virus.
      Scott Halstead, founder of the Pediatric Dengue Vaccine Initiative, told AFP that the WHO was “being hasty” in recommending the vaccine and that people should be tested to see if they have had dengue before being vaccinated.
      “It’s not ethical to give a vaccine that harms someone,” Halstead said.
      But Leroy noted that Dengvaxia, in addition to the WHO’s green light, is getting approval from government health regulators.
      “It is a great solution and the first solution because dengue did not have until now any specific medial solution to treat this illness,” Leroy said, adding that Sanofi is conducting studies in Asia among younger people to see if the vaccine’s reach can expand.

      The Popocatepetl volcano in central Mexico spurted a large plume of ash, smoke and steam into the sky. The eruption reached two kilometers into the sky, according to local media. 

      Mexico's National Disaster Prevention Centre said in its daily report that the volcano registered a total of 73 low intensity exhalations and four explosions over the last 24 hours. Authorities are urging people not to get close to the volcano and particularly to its crater.
      Popocatepetl is the second tallest volcano in Mexico.
