President Pedro Castillo, arrested for sedition after being dismissed

just like he did Alberto Fujimori in 1992The president of Peru, Pedro Castillo, dissolved Congress this Wednesday and announced new elections, but unlike in 1992, this time the Armed Forces withdrew his support and left him alone.

All this chain of events took place after Pedro Castillo announced this Wednesday morning th...

San Francisco votes to halt policy that would allow police to use deadly robots

Where is the difference between a 'Call of duty' screen and a bombing raid on Kherson? That the overdose of wild content plasticizes to the point of insensitivity could explain this lack of clarity, a real case of a patient, to distinguish between a combat video game and the truth of the war in Ukraine, but also the disturbing selfies pouting in Auschwitz, relegated According to those who visit the theme park of extermination, come and see. Or the portraits at the memorial of the victims in Berlin, which in 2019 inspired the 'Yolocaust' project by the Israeli Shahak Saphira to denounce the lack of respect of those who photograph themselves doing acrobatic yoga –or directly the dead person, disjointed by the grimace– between the 2,711 cement blocks that symbolize the tombs of the Jews....
