9 cosas por las que podríamos ir a celebrar al Ángel de la Independencia.

Hace meses, algunos decidieron hacer alboroto al Ángel de la Independencia para celebrar que Leonardo Di Caprio por fin un ganó Oscar.

Pues bien, acá algunas razones más convincentes.

Porque México pase a la siguiente ronda (el quinto partido) en un Mundial de Futbol.

Sí, si a veces no emocionamos por menos, cuánto más porque la selección de Futbol nos haga olvidarnos un poco de EPN o de la devaluación.

Porque regrese Chabelo.

Y ahora sí, prometemos ver el programa los domingos como antaño, dejar la computadora un rato y sumergirnos en el fantástico mundo de golosinas patrocinado por Muebles Troncoso.

Porque volvieran a meter a la cárcel a Florence Cassez

Que apresaran a la cínica francesa que fue liberada por un error en el proceso de su captura, pero que, la vox populi indica que era tan responsable como su novio en los terribles secuestros, sería motivo para ir al Ángel a armar la fiesta.

Porque a alguien se le ocurra que se instituya el Día del Ángel de la Independencia.

Sí, cualquier pretexto es bueno a la hora de socializar con el lábaro monumento de por medio. ¿Qué mejor que su propio cumpleaños?

Porque ganara cualquier candidato del que no sea del PRI, PAN o PRD o ningún partido político.

¿O a poco han visto a alguien a celebrar cuando supuestamente ganó EPN? Quizás un cambio motivaría celebraciones efusivas en el Ángel Indie.

Por que NO ganara Donald Trump.

Dicen que México es un país surrealista, pero que un tipo con Trump sea candidato a gobernar a nuestros vecinos, además de preocupante, es digno de un capítulo de Los Simpsons. Por eso, que las aspiraciones de este energúmeno no prosperen, nos darían un gran motivo para ir a celebrar al Ángel.

Porque eliminaran el “Hoy no Circula”

Pero lo haríamos en nuestros coches y motos sin verificar, dando vueltas por el monumento varias veces, sonando matracas, expidiendo mucho humo y haciendo explotar los cláxones lanzando consignas de amor hacia el Jefe de Gobierno de la CDMX (te extrañamos “D.F.) mientras la polución se nos sube a la cabeza y nos excitamos más que en un partido de futbol. Si no tenemos coche, de todos modos podemos ir a celebrar caminando, eso es lo de menos.

Porque ya no nos pidieran VISA para entrar a Estados Unidos.

Como la embajada de USA está tan cerca, pues muchos aprovecharían de ir a agradecerles a los estadounidenses el detalle y de paso, celebrar juntos en el monumento que está casi enfrente del recinto extranjero.

Porque hubiera un decreto presidencial para que se congelara 50 años el precio de los tacos.

Sí, eso nos garantizaría una dotación casi vitalicia tacos al pastor, de suadero o de canasta, sin que nos afecte la inflación (la monetaria, porque comiendo así, la física seguramente sí).

This Mexican College Student Is Going Viral For Breeding the Largest Bunnies In the World

This Mexican College Student Is Going Viral For Breeding the Largest Bunnies In the World

Look out Bad Bunny. There’s another breed of bunny in town that’s taking the internet by storm. A college student in Mexico recently went viral for the oddest thing. He has genetically engineered a strain of rabbits to be the largest in the world.

21-year-old Kiro Yakin has become a viral sensation after internet users have seen him with pictures of the giant bunnies he genetically engineered.

Yakin, a student at the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla on the Xicotepec campus, is studying veterinary and animal husbandry. He began his experimentation by breeding two unique rabbit types together. The Flemish Giant rabbit and other, longer-eared bunnies that Yakin happened to notice. As a result, his monster-bunny was born.

According to Yakin, his experimental bunnies grow up to 22 pounds  Flemish Giant, while the average Flemish giant weighs 15 pounds. But make no mistake, Yakin’s bunny experiment was no accident. “It takes an average of 3 to 4 years to reproduce this giant species,” he told Sintesis.

Yakin’s ultimate goal is to breed a rabbit that can grow up to 30 pounds. “I am currently studying genetics to see how to grow this breed of giant rabbits more,” he said.

Yakin, who has had a soft spot for rabbits since he was a child (pun intended), now cares for a whopping fifty giant rabbits out of his parents’ home.

Luckily, his parents are supportive enough of his dream that they support their son (and his bunnies) financially. “I have the financial support and support of my parents to buy food a week for all 50 giant rabbits,” Yakin told Sintesis.

But he also admitted his project has a long way to go. “So far I have not set aside the time or budget that is required to start the project more seriously,” he said.

The only thing that’s preventing Yakin from committing all his time and energy to creating even bigger bunnies is–what else?–money.

Although he already submitted a proposal to his university to try and expand his research, as of now, he is self-financed. However, Yakin makes a bit of extra cash by selling the giant bunnies to private customers.

His ultimate goal though, is to open up a large, professional farm where he can breed and cross-breed his bunnies to his heart’s content.

Mexicans Travel To U.S. For ‘Vaccine Tourism’ Say It’s A Matter Of Survival

Mexicans Travel To U.S. For ‘Vaccine Tourism’ Say It’s A Matter Of Survival

The United States is one of the world’s most successful countries when it comes to rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine program. So far, more than 200 million vaccines have been administered across the U.S. and as of this week anyone over the age of 16 is now eligible.

Meanwhile, in many countries around the world – including Mexico – the vaccine roll out is still highly restricted. For many, who can afford to travel, they see the best option at a shot in the arm to take a trip to the U.S. where many locations are reporting a surplus in vaccines.

Wealthy Latin Americans travel to U.S. to get COVID vaccines.

People of means from Latin America are chartering planes, booking commercial flights, buying bus tickets and renting cars to get the vaccine in the United States due to lack of supply back in their home countries. Some of those making the trip include politicians, TV personalities, business executives and a soccer team.

There is an old Mexican joke: God tells a Mexican he has only a week left to live but can ask for one final wish, no matter how outrageous. So the Mexican asks for a ticket to Houston—for a second opinion.

Virginia Gónzalez and her husband flew from Mexico to Texas and then boarded a bus to a vaccination site. They made the trip again for a second dose. The couple from Monterrey, Mexico, acted on the advice of the doctor treating the husband for prostate cancer. In all, they logged 1,400 miles for two round trips.

“It’s a matter of survival,” Gónzalez told NBC News, of getting a COVID-19 vaccine in the United States. “In Mexico, officials didn’t buy enough vaccines. It’s like they don’t care about their citizens.”

Mexico has a vaccine rollout plan but it’s been too slow in many people’s opinions.

With a population of nearly 130 million people, Mexico has secured more vaccines than many Latin American nations — about 18 million doses as of Monday from the U.S., China, Russia and India. Most of those have been given to health care workers, people over 60 and some teachers, who so far are the only ones eligible. Most other Latin American countries, except for Chile, are in the same situation or worse.

So vaccine seekers who can afford to travel are coming to the United States to avoid the long wait, including people from as far as Paraguay. Those who make the trip must obtain a tourist visa and have enough money to pay for required coronavirus tests, plane tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars and other expenses.

There is little that is fair about the global race for the COVID-19 vaccine, despite international attempts to avoid the current disparities. In Israel, a country of 9 million people, half of the population has received at least one dose, while plenty of countries have yet to receive any. While the U.S. could vaccinate 70 percent of its population by September 2021 at the current rollout rate, it could take Mexico until approximately the year 2024 to achieve the same results.
