A figure slinks out of the late-night shadows, stepping onto the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan, the historic district of the Puerto Rican capital city. In the orange glow falling from nearby street lamps, a long knife flashes from his hand. The figure jams the blade into Adam Anhang, a 32-year-old Canadian real estate developer and recent transplant to the island. As the vicious attack continues – the figure stabs Anhang again and again before crashing a loose cobblestone over his head – Anhang manages to call out to his nearby wife, Aurea Vazquez Rijos, a former Puerto Rican beauty queen. “Run baby, run!” Anhang shouts, law enforcement would later say. When San Juan authorities eventually rushed onto the scene on Sept. 22, 2005, Vazquez Rijos was loaded into an ambulance with cuts and bruises. Anhang, however, was already dead. Blood was spilling across the island that year. In 2005, Puerto Rico notched 766 homicides, a murder rate that was three times … [Read more...] about Police said a millionaire’s murder was a robbery.

On a recent trip to Southeast Asia, I saw signs warning about Zika transmission and realized that it had been over a year since I had heard about the virus. And though a lot has changed the Zika outbreak, Zika is still affecting almost 100 countries in some capacity. After interviewing medical professionals and researching Zika on the CDC’s website, I think this underreporting is the result of zero reported cases of mosquito-bite transmission of Zika in the continental U.S. in 2018.

But the hundreds of people gathered were English, not American, and they had traveled — many for hours by bus — not to see Trump but to cheer on a prominent nationalist and anti-Islam activist named Tommy Robinson, whose rise … [Read more...] about Trump inspires UK nationalists
