(Esther Debbie Louis/)
A ‘racially motivated’ shooting targeting African-Americans occurred at a crowded Buffalo Supermarket on May 14, 2022. The gunman was identified as Payton Gendron, a white man from Conklin, New York.
Erie County's sheriff, John Garcia, said “It was a straight-up, racially motivated hate crime from somebody outside of our community, trying to inflict that evil upon us”.
A suspect is in custody today after a mass shooting at a Buffalo New York grocery store left at least 10 people dead according to Assemblymember Bichotte.
Protecting biodiversity has paid off for Costa Rica by Alejandra Echeverri Ochoa and Jeffrey R. Smith for the Conversation 4/25/22
As scholars who study conservation and ecology, we wondered whether biodiversity ‐ specifically, the number of species in a given place ‐ influenced where people chose to travel for tourism. We analyzed that question in a recently published study focused on Costa Rica, a country that markets itself to the world as green and biodiverse, and derives almost 10% of its gross domestic product from tourism activities.
Our study assessed whether the opportunity to see many vertebrate animal species mattered to tourists visiting Costa Rica, and if so, how important it was compared with other features like hotels and beaches.

About 6 million U.S. adults identify as Afro-Latino by Ana Gonzalez-Barrera, 5/9/22
(Pew Research Center/)
Ana Gonzalez-Barrera is a senior researcher focusing on Hispanics, immigration and demographics at Pew Research Center.
Afro-Latino identity is a distinct one, with deep roots in colonial Latin America. As a result, it can often exist alongside a person’s Hispanic, racial or national origin identities. The life experiences of Afro-Latinos are shaped by race, skin tone and other factors, in ways that differ from other Hispanics.
And though most Afro-Latinos identify as Hispanic or Latino, not all do so, according to new Pew Research Center estimates based on a survey of U.S. adults conducted from November 2019 to June 2020.
