By August March [ Tue May 24 2016 10:41 PM ]

Global, national and local media outlets are reporting that daylong protests over presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's appearance in Albuquerque have become violent.

The Guardian has obtained photos which appear to show local police forces using pepper spray against protesters.

The Santa Fe New Mexican writes that police and sheriff's deputies in riot gear were deployed when protesters stormed the entrance to the convention center in downtown Albuquerque.

The Daily Word

If you're also wondering "who the f*ck builds a stonehenge," the answer may not be as mysterious as you think. But until someone builds a time machine and travels to the past, who really knows?

Today marks The European Day of Parks, a cause for celebration and appreciation of the region's protected natural places. Find that last bit of inspiration needed for a European adventure in these stunning photos.

Works by the forever anonymous and controversial artist Banksy are lent by private collectors and shown at a gallery in Rome.

Governor Martinez is one Burqueña who will neither support nor protest the Albuquerque Trump rally. The reason? She's “really busy.”

Venezuelans, furious about food shortages and inflation, protest against President Maduro on the streets of Caracas.

Don't fear trans people in bathrooms, fear diaper changing stations. Learn from this woman's mistake and remember to put the table back up.

The Daily Word in Fuzzy Ethics, Cat Tongues and Awful News

Researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University have successfully removed HIV DNA from the cells of living animals. That's a game-changer, folks.

Every cat owner knows the pain of being unable to lick their feline buddy. Thank the stars someone was brave enough to develop a tongue-shaped cat brush that you hold in your mouth!

Obama authorized a drone-strike yesterday that apparently "took care of" the leader of the Taliban. Most of the time, real life sounds like a rap video. Blat blat, mother mother.

According to Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, it's actually harder to remember the unethical things you've done. That's right. When you lie, steal or cheat, your brain does its best to fudge up the details so you can still think you're a good person. Real talk: You're not.

Speaking of terrible people: Erica Garcia, a 29-year-old ABQ resident who got her 15 minutes of fame three years ago when she left her baby in a hot car, allegedly flipped her vehicle over at Mountain and Woodward yesterday. She told officers she drank 30 beers before the accident. Oh, did I mention there was a two-year-old riding with her, and that they didn't have a seat belt on? The child was critically injured and is currently fighting for their life in the hospital.

The news is foul. Put your phone down and go outside, instead. It's beautiful out there.
