The former chief executive of a Miami armored-car company has pleaded guilty to helping smuggle $140 million in “dirty gold” that had been illegally mined in South America into the United States. Jesus Gabriel Rodriguez, Jr. the one-time head of Transvalue, which provided transport services for precious metals and other valuables, admitted playing a pivotal role in an effort to smuggle gold into the country in a way that evaded anti-money rules and export bans. Prosecutors say the 45-year-old Rodriguez and his company helped turn Miami into a major hub for enterprise that smuggled billions in gold into the U.S. from illegal mines all over South America, partly as a way to launder money for drug traffickers.
In Comachuen, a Purepecha Indigenous community of about 10,000 inhabitants nestled high in the pine-clad mountains of the western state of Michoacan, the whole town survives because of the money sent home by migrants working in the United States. The money has allowed their families to remain in Comachuen rather than moving to other parts of Mexico for work. The traditional textiles, woodworking and construction live on, largely because such enterprises are funded by migrants who send money home to build houses here.
The US Navy is working to recover an F-35C fighter — one of the US military's most advanced jets — that crash-landed on the Navy aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson before falling into the South China Sea earlier this week. The US presently faces the challenge of pulling the wreckage out of the contested waters of the South China Sea to recover US technology, as well as make sure no one else can get their hands on the plane. Experts say China would almost certainly want to get ahold of the F-35, a highly-capable fifth-generation fighter jet that has taken many years and significant funding to research and develop.

Norway's prime minister, whose country borders Russia and is a founding member of NATO, said Wednesday he believes it's “a sign of weakness” that President Vladimir Putin has to express Moscow's political views by an “extraordinary” military buildup. Jonas Gahr Støre said in an interview with The Associated Press that he calls it a sign of weakness because it's at the negotiating table where issues that matter to people should be discussed, not by “that kind of military demonstration,” and by pursuing Russia's interests where “the weapons will speak.”

U.S. government scientists said on Wednesday they have taken an important step in the long trek toward making nuclear fusion - the very process that powers stars - a viable energy source for humankind. Using the world's largest laser, the researchers coaxed fusion fuel for the first time to heat itself beyond the heat they zapped into it, achieving a phenomenon called a burning plasma that marked a stride toward self-sustaining fusion energy. The experiments produced the self-heating of matter in a plasma state through nuclear fusion, which is the combining of atomic nuclei to release energy.

"Mucus, along with the respiratory tract and the upper digestive tract, act in many ways as the lubrication, filter and protection for our bodies," he tells Yahoo Life. Also known as phlegm, mucus is made up of mostly water, but it also contains "remnants of skin-lining cells (epithelial cells), antimicrobial enzymes, proteins and inorganic salts," explains Nasseri. "It is produced by your mucous membranes and coats your mouth, nose, sinuses, throat, lungs and gastrointestinal tract."
