A proposed fee to cross the border into the US legally is at the center of a huge debate Homeland Security Department says the two dollar fee is necessary to pay for the costs of border screening yeah two dollars may not sound like much but one woman says it could hurt border towns as well as her livelihood nevada for Ghani has the story from Nogales it's a walk Alexandra maxon has to make every day in order to get to work she enters into the US from mexico through the US port of entry and nogales anywhere in Nogales you'll find a job over here its minimum wage but it beats working in Mexico where the minimum wage is just under five dollars alexandra is a US citizen and had to move to Mexico last year to keep her family together my children's father that got deported so now I'm the sole provider for everything and I pay for everything and every penny counts the only thing cheap over there is rent the electricity is more than what it is paid over here even the groceries are cheaper in the US but crossing could now become costly the Department of Homeland Security wants to impose a two dollar fee to anyone coming into the country if you're from here and you're born here I don't think they should not not let you in your own country because I'm from here and if I don't have two dollars on me to cross to go into my country I'm gonna be met and the two dollar fee might not sound like a lot but for Alexandra it's everything I could be paying my cell phone bill I could be using that for electricity diapers milk food but it's not just the out-of-pocket burden that she's worried about she also fears the fee would hurt the economic benefits border towns like Nogales get from the thousands that cross into the u.s. every day it's gonna be like a ghost town over here I think so there's not gonna be a whole lot of visitors you know because that's how we get our money over here is people bored of shopping unless business could mean Alexandra might have to find another way to support her family in Nogales Nevada fergana ABC 15 minutes new development

FAQ

What tips would you give someone who is going to the US for the first time?
It depends on where you are coming from.Let's say you are coming from Asia or more specifically from India.Here is what you need to know:Don't assume anything like we do back home in our country. I used to do that a lot and had to pay for it later here.Be on time wherever you have an appointment. Be it at Doctor’s, Dentist, or any other place.There is a concept of space in the west including America. Don't keep hugging, touching, crossing by close from people and touching others while crossing them.Don't break the queue. It is deemed disrespectful and unlike in many other countries including India, you will be called out by any individual there standing in the queue. Everybody is same in America and it feels that way too.If you are a first time student then your task is cut out. You need to care for a lot of things. It's completely different from India. Lectures happen on time. Submissions of assignments can't go beyond a prescribed date or hour of the day. No personal favors from the Professors because of your gender, caste, color, religion, personality etc.If you are visiting for the first time, make sure that you don't throw garbage wherever you like. Somebody will definitely check you in public and somebody can also report that to the police. Littering fines are really high in some places.No free perks in this country. You earn and you eat. Simple as that. Unlike in India where if you are a top government official or a politician, you don't have to carry your wallet with you anywhere because you seldom have to pay for anything.When you pass by anybody, most people will smile and say ‘Hi’ or ‘How are you?’. Don't be surprised. This is how everybody greets each other here. What a great thing to do.People will open the door for you or keep it open even if they are ahead of you. That's just how people like to help each other. It is not seen in many countries at least not in India.You go over the limit while driving, chances are that you will be caught and fined. Stay in the speed limit or just a few miles above it is also acceptable. Drink and drive has huge fines, never try that. Don't overtake too many times, the police is trained to catch such people.If you get into an accident on the road, don't keep beating the hell out of that person whether it's their fault or yours. In India, it is very common that whether it is your fault or not, you have the moral right to beat the crap out of the other person. Just like that. Here in US, you will not just be put in Jail, you could lose a teeth or two as most people are not that submissive.Keep walking on the road while crossing. Here in US, pedestrian has the right of way before anybody to cross the road. Don't try that on a freeway. No right of way there for pedestrians.Thanks for the A2A!
As a permanent resident, if I am out of country for more than 5 years in Canada, is my residency dead?
This question and the answers below manage to disprove the properly held belief that the Canadian Immigration Website is the single sole source of complete accurate information on all issues relating to Canadian immigration and citizenship. This plays into the government pushed storyline that proper expert advice is not necessary and therefore a waste of time and money.Let me demonstrate how someone could easily be mislead by the Canadian government website into believing that they have lost their permanent residence status, because they are physically absent from Canada for extensive periods of time.A new permanent resident of Canada is issued a Permanent Resident Card soon after they assume Permanent Residence Status in Canada,A PR Card is the document that one uses to prove to Canadian port of entry officials when you are entering Canada using a commercial conveyance, that you possess the status of Permanent Resident of Canada. An equivalence can be drawn to Canadian Citizens proving their Canadian Citizenship to these same port of entry officials when entering Canada using a commercial conveyances by presenting a valid Canadian passport,PR Cards are issued for 5 year periods. In order to renew your PR card, one needs to indicate on the application that they have been physically present in Canada at least 2 out of the last 5 years before applying (Note: Let’s leave aside for a moment the tremendous amount of fraud on this point, as Canada does not have the means to enforce physical presence).If you are outside of Canada when your PR card expires, the government website then implies you have lost your PR status and then maps out a complicated process to prove why they should issue you a Permanent Resident Travel Document to seek re-entry,If your PR card expires that does NOT mean that you cease to be a PR of Canada. It means that you do not have a unexpired PR card to prove that status to Canadian port of entry officials when you are entering Canada using a commercial conveyance. An equivalence would be that the expiry of a Canadian passport does not mean that the person ceases to be a US citizen.However, If you dig deep enough into the government website, you will find this admission here:“You are still a permanent resident if your card expires.”and here: “If you live outside of Canada for longer, you may lose your permanent resident status.”Since you are still a PR of Canada, there is nothing that prevents you from attempting to enter Canada on a private conveyance (such as a car or boat from the US). You will either be allowed into Canada where you can spend the required time to be eligible to apply for a new PR Card which will allow future entry by commercial conveyance OR you will be identified at the port of entry as someone who MAY be found to have abandoned your permanent residence.In order for you to actually lose your PR status the following must occur:-You must be found by an Immigration Official to have been absent for extensive periods of time, and-The official must file an appropriate report, and-An adjudication must be heard that examines fully your situation pursuant to basic Canadian administrative law procedures,-A decision of abandonment must be made and all appeals exhaustedIf all of that happens then the “may lose” turns into a “have lost”. Since this is obviously resource intensive for the Canadian government with an uncertain outcome of lost pr status, a significant effort is made to “convince” the pr to “abandon” their pr status.Like the mistaken assumption that one loses their pr status if their pr card expires, having someone abandon their status rather than go through extensive effort to legally remove that status is in the government (but not the pr’s) best interest.In short, the government by implying, burying required procedures , and lack of clarity on this issue fills a government objective. Specifically to have long-time absent Permanent Residents either think they have lost their pr status or “convince” them to actually voluntarily relinquish their pr status. This is NOT in the interests of Permanent Residents who have spent considerable sums of money in government fees and other costs to acquire that permanent resident status.The belief that professional advisors are not required as the Canadian government website always gives you all the necessary legal guidance that you could possibly need is demonstrable incorrect. Such a belief is the equivalent to believing that the Canadian Tax Authority Website will show you ever possible legal tax avoidance option available to you.Yes these websites are free. However, as I just demonstrated, the advice they sometimes give is worth exactly what you paid for it….nothing.

Is there a map creator out there that will allow me to colour/fill in regions/states/provinces of countries rather than only the whole country itself?
There are a few blank maps on Wikipedia (both as SVG and PNG) that include subdivisions, such as:These can be shaded using graphics software such as Inkscape or GIMP (using the palette, bucket, selection and color selection tools). For example, this is how I recently created the following map, which includes the Chinese provinces and Indian states:
How did the author of Punch Escrow use Wardley maps to map out the future?
Tal Klein’s interview on John Scalzi’s Big Idea feature is a really good primer on his methodology.The Big Idea: Tal M. KleinKlein’s transportation idea is 1) one common understanding of how human transportation could work (the destroyed twin idea) and 2) an exercise in marketing not world-building. In other words, it’s a McGuffin, and the genius in the book is in describing how the McGuffin was accepted widely.This is actually a really good application of Wardley mapping. Simon Wardley’s most important insight is that on a map “All the components … are evolving from left to right due to supply and demand competition”[1]Competition consistently pushes commodities and services from the labratory to being widely available. What Wardly mapping allows you to do is take a snapshot of where your industry is at a particular moment. It allows you to orient in John Boyd’s OODA loop.Kelin just took his snapshot 100 years in the future with a technology that is currently firmly in a Wardly ‘Genesis’ group.Footnotes[1] An introduction to Wardley (Value Chain) Mapping
