The state has more than 1 million immigrants illegally in the country, according to the Migration Policy Institute. Some are abandoning Texas for more liberal states, where they feel safer even if it means relinquishing lives they've spent years building. Jose, a 43-year-old Mexican living in the U.S. illegally since 2001, and his wife Holly left Austin for Seattle in January in anticipation of Texas' immigration crackdown. That meant parting with Jose's grown son, their community of friends and their beloved home of eight years. I felt like we ripped our roots up and threw ourselves across the country, said Holly, a 40-year-old Kentucky native who wanted to protect her husband. Holly said as soon as Donald Trump was elected president, she and her husband began preparing to move. They expected Texas would follow Trump's agenda trying to force local law enforcement to do immigration's job.

Living next to the Nurburgring certainly seems like a dream to all of us currently residing in the US. The track where all BMWs are tested before being given the green light to enter production, is probably the most adored in the world. One of the reasons certainly has to do with Touristenfahrten days when anyone can get on the track and push his or her car to the limit. We saw some rather interesting combats take place on it during these tourist days' and we even saw buses being driven on the track on more than one occasion. Today though we're here for a different reason and not dealing with buses, vans or anything of the sort but instead we're taking a look at a duel between three hot hatches and a BMW M4 . As you already know, BMWs are quite popular on the ring, and the M4 is no exception. However, more and more hot hatches are also showing up on the Ring lately, especially since a couple of manufacturers have actually started a proper FWD hot hatch competition on the Green Hell, to claim the title of the fastest FWD car in the world.

5 billion Solar Probe Plus (SPP) will use an active water circulation system to help protect instruments that will measure the corona's electric and magnetic fields, electron temperatures, and plasma density. And of course, there'll also be an imaging system to take a few holiday snaps while spending such quality time under the Sun. Understanding the activity of the Sun and predicting weather from it is crucial if we really want to have humans explore space more, including working and living on the Moon and Mars, says Tucker. Getting a grip on how particles are whipped into high speeds will also give researchers a better idea on how objects move through space. Tucker pointed out that the Kepler Space Telescope is steered by solar winds. By understanding the solar wind in better detail, how it is accelerated namely, it will open up the possibility of using it to accelerate space craft like the one proposed in the Light Sail project, Tucker told ScienceAlert.

we know that people are living longer. The next decade, there is good to be another 2 million people over 75, which is great news but we have to be frank that this is going to cost money. We have to find a way that is fair for people to pay for it and this is the best way to pay for it. Amber Rudd, thank you very much.

I could not resist a $9 Death Star weed grinder . It looks like the Death Star and it grinds weed! Mission accomplished. I am not sure I will use it very often, but this grinder will sit next to the headpiece for the Staff of Ra in my living room. Its a cool knickknack for $9. The 'heavy feeling' zinc alloy feels heavy. You have the choice of leaving a screen in and having the weed all sit in the grinder teeth, and kief falling in a holding cell -- OR you can remove the screen and have the weed all just fall together! Not a lot to this baby. This item to be the same as more expensive variants of the Death Star grinder, down to the packaging. This version does not come with the cleaning tools that I doubt you'll really want. Formax420 Death Star Grinder Star War Round Grinder 3 Pieces Spice Mill 1.9 inch via Amazon

While it's surely given the villagers living there happiness, it also brings in tourists looking to catch a glimpse of the growing rainbow village trend. With more and more visitors flocking in, the rise in tourism has already shown benefit for local businesses, who have seen improvements in souvenir and food sales. Good for Instagram shots, and village morale, it's nice to see how a taste of rainbow can benefit a community and travelers alike.
