U.S. President Obama arrives in Mexico on working visit


MEXICO CITY, -- U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Mexico City Thursday aboard the official presidential airplane Air Force One, for an overnight work visit.

Obama was received at the presidential hangar at Mexico City's international airport by Mexico's Foreign Minister Jose Antonio Meade, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Anthony Wayne, Mexico's Ambassador to the U.S. Eduardo Medina Mora and other officials.

The U.S. president immediately boarded his presidential state car, known as "The Beast," which was followed by 32 security vehicles and a Mexican Navy helicopter, and headed to the National Palace, headquarters of the Mexican government.

At the National Palace, Obama and Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto will hold a meeting to discuss a variety of issues, including economic growth, competitiveness, public security, immigration, border management, trade, investment, education and scientific exchange.

Around 4 pm local time (2100 GMT), The two presidents will hold a joint press conference and in the evening Pena Nieto will host a state dinner in Obama's honor.

At the moment of Obama's arrival, Pena Nieto posted a tweet that says "this visit will be of great benefit to our countries."

This is Obama's fourth visit to Mexico, but the first during Pena Nieto's presidency, which began in November 2012.

On Friday, May 3, Obama's agenda includes a meeting with several figures from Mexico's social sectors and an encounter with Mexican students at the National Anthropology Museum.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
