Neither Russia or China have the capacity nor the intent for global conquest. These are nuclear-armed regional titans, and, at least in China’s case, have real economic clout. What they’re decidedly not is super villains. All the alarmism surrounding Russia and China (and North Korea and Iran, for that matter) serves none but the military-industrial complex, the arms dealers, and hawkish politicians who bully their way to power through the force of inflated threats.

Inside the social media’s black market - Everyone wants to be popular online. Some even pay for it - The Follower Factory report by Nicholas Confessore, Gabriel J.X. Dance, Richard Harris and Mark Hansen that shows what popularity counts are worth. It’s crapola premium!
Fake accounts, deployed by governments, criminals, and entrepreneurs, now infest social media networks. By some calculations, as many as 48 million of Twitter’s reported active users - nearly 15 percent - are automated accounts designed to simulate real people, though the company claims that number is far lower.
In November, Facebook disclosed to investors that it had at least twice as many fake users as it previously estimated, indicating that up to 60 million automated accounts may roam the world’s largest social media platform.

The avocado police protecting Mexico's green gold. Tancítaro looks and feels like a typical Mexican town: There is a central square with a bandstand and a little church. Tancítaro is powered on avocados, its people are rich from Mexico's green gold. This town is known as Mexico's avocado capital.
The municipality of about 30,000 people produces enough avocados to satisfy the demand of all of California.
Mexico produces about 45% of the world's avocados and Michoacán is Mexico's largest avocado-producing state.
From here alone, nearly two billion avocados are shipped to the US every year.
And because the industry is a lucrative one, it has been the target of organized crime.
In the absence of an effective police force, communities armed themselves to ensure the security of their towns, leading to the emergence in 2013 of "self-defence groups" in Michoacán.

A potential repeal of NAFTA is likely to hit Mexico’s manufacturing industry first. But if the deal is canceled it may creates opportunities otherwise. If qualified workers are not allowed to go to the US, they’re missing huge opportunities, huge market shares. If they don’t resolve that, there’s going to be a Chinese company or a Mexican company that’s going to service their consumer base.

2017 could be Mexico’s new peak in the drug war. The 18,505 homicides reported by the Interior Department from January to September exceed those reported during the same period for any year on record, according to the report by the non-governmental National Citizens Observatory, which tracks crime statistics. This means the country will likely exceed the number of homicides reported in 2011 — previously seen as the peak of the drug war, the analysis says.
