Thanks to immigrants: New figures show how US cities with more foreigners fare better. 

This is what you need to know to start the day.

First the truth


1. 4 data before the final Argentina vs.


 Speculations are over!

Argentina and France will face each other again in a World Cup, as they did 4 years ago for the round of 16 of Russia 2018. Of course, this time there will be a special seasoning: when the 22 footballers leave through the tunnel of the Lusail Stadium, they will parade with the irresistible World Cup in the middle.

And while the wait overwhelms us, nothing like a good review of curious facts and some "curses" to pass the time.

2. Thanks to immigrants 

In the United States, a country whose history was forged to a large extent by immigrants, the discourse against foreigners who arrive in search of better opportunities does not subside.

However, the words of those who portray immigrants as a threat do not hold water: Studies, such as one recently published by the George W. Bush Institute, clearly show that these communities benefit the nation's economy as a whole and the pockets of the natives in particular.
