Members of the Mexican Federal Police clashed with teachers protesting an education overhaul and the arrest of two of their leaders, in Oaxaca State, on June 19.
Clashes Draw Support for Teachers' Protest in Mexico


Thousands of students in Oaxaca State have been without school for months, but after government forces clashed with demonstrators last week, a teachers' movement appears to have gained steam.

A view from inside the SCOTUS: The affirmative action decision explained

In the first line of his 51-page dissent in Fisher v. The University of Texas at Austin, Justice Alito wrote that “something strange is going on at the Supreme Court.” Indeed, it was. I think it’s safe to say no one thought race-based admissions processes would survive after the first Fisher case in 2013. The four conservative Justices (Scalia included) have long been chomping at the bit to quash it, believing instead that the way to end race-based discrimination is to “stop discriminating on the basis of their race.” Universities have no less continued to try different ways to diversify campuses but have ostensibly been told by the SCOTUS: You’re doing it wrong.

250px-Johnny_Manziel_in_Kyle_FieldIt has happened to us all. You quickly type an email and some auto program completes the address for the wrong person or you hit "reply all" by mistake. Indeed, most attorneys have had such misfires in case, but few have had to deal with the embarrassment of Defense attorney Bob Hinton in the high-profile case. Hinton sent an Associated Press reporter an email intended for the legal team that admits that his client former Quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel is still abusing drugs and could not pass a simple urinalysis as part of any plea bargain. Since they are trying to secure such a deal, the email is devastating for any chance that Manziel had for such a deal. To make matters worse, Manziel's own father called him a "druggie" and said that he hoped that his son would be sent to jail to save his life.
