Flashback

The First Lady of the United States Melania Trump made a surprise visit to the U.S.–Mexico border a day after U.S. President retreated on his “zero tolerance” immigration policy signing an executive order to end the separation of migrant children from their parents. The First Lady took part in briefings and attended a tour of a “nonprofit social services center for children who have entered the United States illegally and a customs and border patrol processing center”, according to a statement from her office. Earlier in the day, while boarding a plane to Texas, the First Lady appeared to be wearing a $39 khaki green Zara jacket provocatively reading “I really don’t care. Do u?”, which she then removed during the visit. Photo: Mandel Ngan/AFP/Getty Images.

Even if AI is unbeatable, you can always challenge your own limitations”, she said. Photos: 邢铁军 (Xíng Tiějūn).

Gone with the Wind

Many Iranian women not only took off their veils but also merrily joined their male countrymen in the stadium celebrations at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Women in Iran have been banned from entering stadiums since the Iranian Revolution in 1979, but Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani and his ministry of sports – as well as the majority of Iranians – do not agree with the stadium ban, so, who knows, something might even happen quite soon.
