    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead at 87.
    ?m=02&d=20200919&t=2&i=1534077146&r=LYNXMPEG8I039&w=800
    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who became a hero of the American left in her more than quarter-century on the nation’s top court, died on Friday at age 87. ...

    Ginsburg, who was born in New York on March 15, 1933, went to Cornell University and Harvard Law School before receiving her law degree from Columbia University, where she later taught. Upon her graduation from Columbia, no New York City law firms tried to hire her. ...

    While in private practice Ginsburg won five cases involving women’s rights before the U.S. Supreme Court. She was quoted in Time magazine as saying her strategy was to “attack the most pervasive stereotype in the law - that men are independent and women are men’s dependents.”

    In compliance with the prevention, care and containment measures of Covid-19, there will be no star trek to celebrate La Alborada ("Dawn"). There will be symbolic burning of gunpowder, only for 10 minutes, in the atrium of the Parish. There will be no pedestrian access and it will be supervised by elements of the Ministry of Public Security. This year the Alborada will be virtual.

    In tuna cans, new rule will allow a maximum of 50% soy.
    compania-emplea-mil-personas-planta_0_16_650_405.jpeg
    According to the regulation, up to 50 percent of the mass drained from the product will be allowed to be soybeans, vegetables, legumes, dressings or others, as long as the other half is tuna.

    In March 2019, the Federal Consumer Prosecutor's Office (Profeco) announced that several brands of tuna in Mexico included more soy than fish in their composition , therefore, in the absence of a limit in the Mexican regulation for the use of this type of additives, this Friday the government published in the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF) the new Official Mexican Standard-235-SE-2020 , which will govern the content of prepackaged tuna.
