  • GastroBox is a brand of nostalgia products from the Sonora region.

Fermín Soto and Martín Landeros met in an exchange in the United States. Both young men, originally from Hermosillo, Sonora, began to miss the food from their hometown after two months, but that feeling brought to mind the idea of creating a business that could bring products from your region to wherever you were.

“Martín and I clicked from the first day, we became very close friends and about the second month you quickly start to miss family, friends, girlfriend and then food and we realized that you don’t really start to miss food for food if not for what transported you ”, explains in an interview

Education secretary has learned little | Opinion

If election results hold, one official leaving office will be Betsy DeVos, one of the few members of President Donald Trump’s administration to serve four years. Her tenure is bookended by a Senate confirmation hearing in which she justified guns in schools because of “potential grizzlies” and by tone-deaf criticism of results for 12th-graders on a national test.

“Sadly, today’s results confirm America’s schools continue to fall far short, and continue to fail too many kids, especially the most disadvantaged,” DeVos said of newly released scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, commonly known as “the nation’s report card.” “Being a high school graduate should mean something. But when 40% of these graduates are ‘below basic’ in math, and 30% are ‘below basic’ in reading, it’s hard to argue the education system is preparing them for what comes next.”

Tiny, seemingly harmless ocean plants survived the darkness of the asteroid strike that killed the dinosaurs by learning a ghoulish behavior—eating other living creatures.

Vast amounts of debris, soot, and aerosols shot into the atmosphere when an asteroid slammed into Earth 66 million years ago, plunging the planet into darkness, cooling the climate, and acidifying the oceans. Along with the dinosaurs on the land and giant reptiles in the ocean, the dominant species of marine algae were instantly wiped out—except for one rare type.

A team of scientists, including researchers at UC Riverside, wanted to understand how these algae managed to thrive while the mass extinction rippled throughout the rest of the global food chain.

“This event came closest to wiping out all multicellular life on this

Seven Lessons We’ve Learned From This Historic Hurricane Season

We’re chugging through one of the most active Atlantic hurricane seasons on record. We’ve seen 27 named storms so far this year—just one storm shy of the all-time record set back in 2005—and an unprecedented 11 of those named storms made landfall in the United States.

Hurricane forecasting and preparations have come a long way over the last few decades, but there’s still plenty of room for improvement. Going through such a prolific hurricane season gives us a unique opportunity to learn what we can do better to prepare for and recover from future storms.

We’re still more than a month away from the end of hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30, and we’re well past the peak of the season, which typically occurs during the second week of
