A new study from the Center for Immigration Studies reports that a border wall could save U.S. taxpayers $64 million over the next decade. The author of the report, director of research Steven Camarota, joined Cheryl Casone of Fox Business on Friday to discuss the costs associated with illegal immigrants. "We do have a pretty good idea based on a variety of sources of the likely education level of illegal immigrants and there is already an existing body of research that estimates the fiscal impact of illegal immigrants by education or immigrants in general," Camerota began. "The National Academy of Sciences just did a study last year on how much immigrants pay in taxes and use in services by education," he said. "Once you know the education level of illegal immigrants and then you plug it in and you can come up with an estimate." Casone asked Camarota to further explain how the cost of an illegal immigrant accumulates.

It means something ― it means a lot, in fact ― that so few filmmakers of color have been nominated, or that the Oscars have spotty credentials when it comes to stories about queer subjects. If these awards are Americas gold standard, people of all backgrounds deserve an invitation. But no matter the political jeremiads that flank Oscar night, the compulsion to gauge nominees based on the White Houses affairs has never been this frank. Just look at the past decade. Analyses of 2010s campaigns indicated The Hurt Locker bested sci-fi behemoth Avatar because it staged a fierce dark-horse coup , not because it tackled the then-ongoing Iraq War. 2011s titleholder, The Kings Speech, a typical Hollywood period piece, is one of the more divisive Best Picture upsets, largely because the moral ambiguity and topical timeliness of The Social Network made for a more progressive filmmaking style.

You might've billed Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire as cash-in remakes of two somewhat middling entries in the monster catching franchise. There's no shame in it. That's what we thought, too. But actually sitting down with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is like seeing a friend after a decade apart: you're both different people than you were 10 years ago, but just as fond of one another now as you were then. The 3DS versions of Ruby and Sapphire add a number of interesting even ground-breaking new features like Mega Evolutions from X and Y, and Pokémon Box that allows you to send monsters to yourself from one game in the franchise to the next. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you find yourself thrust into the role of a village's new mayor, which means it's up to you to help make the rules and aid in the burg's development.

Enlarge (credit: William Murphy ) Apple has attempted to school the European Commission on how it interprets Irish law, by lodging no less than 14 pleas in its challenge against competition officials in Brussels who have ordered the iPhone maker to pay Ireland13 billion11.1 billion) in back taxes. The company claimed that the commission was wrong in its conclusion that Apple's tax arrangements with Dublin had amounted to a sweetheart deal for more than a decade, thereby breaking state aid rules. Apple, in a bold dismissal of the case, is seeking a full or partial annulment and wants the commission—which is the executive arm of the European Union—to pay its legal costs.

More than a decade ago, engineers John Bartholdi, Craig Tovey, and John Vande Vate became interested in bees. How exactly did a colony organize thousands of foragers to collect all the nectar needed to survive the winter? If the bees were to hire the engineers as consultants, could they improve on nature? To find out, they joined forces with honey bee researcher Thomas Seeley, painstakingly labeling and monitoring 4,000 bees in his upstate New York study colony.

Research finds distinctive language deficits in people with mild cognitive impairment, a precursor to dementia Rambling and long-winded anecdotes could be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease, according to research that suggests subtle changes in speech style occur years before the more serious mental decline takes hold. The scientists behind the work said it may be possible to detect these changes and predict if someone is at risk more than a decade before meeting the threshold for an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.
