(Reuters) – A six-year-old girl from India died of heat stroke in an Arizona desert after her mother left her with other migrants to go in search of water, a medical examiner and U.S. Border Patrol said on Friday.
The girl, Gurupreet Kaur, soon to celebrate her seventh birthday, was found by U.S. Border Patrol west of Lukeville, Arizona on Wednesday, when temperatures reached a high of 108 degrees Fahrenheit (42 Celsius), U.S. Border Patrol and the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner (PCOME) said.
The girl’s death, the second recorded fatality of a migrant child this year in Arizona’s southern deserts, highlighted the danger of summer heat as a surge of migrant families, mainly from Central America, cross the U.S.-Mexico border to seek asylum.

The arguments against beginning the impeachment of Donald Trump keep getting worse.
The latest from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi posits something like: We can’t impeach because some people think that means removal from office — and if we impeach they’ll quickly figure out that’s not true. It’s like arguing we shouldn’t take a cruise to Zanzibar because Flat Earthers think we’ll fall off the planet.
One argument does ring true for many on the left, especially those who enjoy the significant advances in rights for LGBTQ people under President Barack Obama. It goes like this: If we got President Mike Pence, we’d be begging to have Trump back, as former White House aide and Trump apologist Omarosa Manigault Newman insisted.
“Happiness expert” Paul Dolan’s claim that married women admit to being less happy than unmarried women when their spouse is out of the room was based off a misreading of the data, adjunct professor Gray Kimbrough has revealed.
“Married people are happier than other population subgroups, but only when their spouse is in the room when they’re asked how happy they are. When the spouse is not present: f***ing miserable,” Dolan said, citing the American Time Use Survey, a national survey available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and used for academic research on how Americans live their lives.
The problem? That finding is the result of a grievous misunderstanding on Dolan’s part of how the American Time Use Survey works. The people conducting the survey didn’t ask married people how happy they were, shoo their spouses out of the room, and then ask again. Dolan had misinterpreted one of the categories in the survey, “spouse absent,” which refers to married people whose partner is no longer living in their household, as meaning the spouse stepped out of the room.
Comedy and clapback queen Leslie Jones just called out the beauty giant, Sephora.
The Saturday Night Live actress blasted the makeup retailer on Twitter on Tuesday, writing, “I sent my makeup artist @LolasBeautyMark and my best friends wife to @Sephora 2103 Broadway store. she needed makeup and to learn how to apply. my makeup artist just called in tears of how bad they treated her and my friends wife!! The salesperson and manager. SO NO MORE SEPHORA”
Jones’s followers chimed in, sharing their own negative Sephora experiences. One Twitter user wrote, “Don’t even get me started! I had the rudest ever encounter with the New York staff!”
Sephora responded to Jones’s allegations in a statement to PEOPLE.
“As a company, we hold ourselves to a high, and public, set of standards around creating a welcoming space for each and every client. The information shared by Leslie Jones regarding Lola Okanlawon’s experience at Sephora is concerning, and the situation she describes does not reflect our values. We have reached out to Lola to gather more information. It is our priority to build an inclusive community and a place where all clients feel respected. Our journey has not been perfect and is by no means complete. We will continue to learn and work toward this goal.”

Speaking with LGBTQ advocacy group the Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, former Vice President Joe Biden made an odd connection between the death of five black transgender women in 2019 and the Trump administration.
“We’ve already had five, just this year, we’ve already had five black transgender women killed violently in 2019,” he said. “It’s outrageous. It must, it must, it must end. And the fastest way to end it is end the Trump administration.”
Biden made the strange connection between the deaths and Trump without any proof of how the two are connected, instead complaining about the military transgender ban.

What Happens If America Leaves NATO? Russia Wins.
What would happen if the United States left NATO?
The International Institute of Strategic Studies examined several scenarios in which NATO (including Canada) had to confront Russia without U.S. support.
In one scenario set in 2021, Russia occupies Lithuania as well as Polish territory bordering Kaliningrad. With Lithuania and Poland as NATO members, NATO invokes Article 5, which treats an attack on one member as an attack on all members. It prepares a military force—minus U.S. troops and support—to compel Russia to withdraw from the occupied territories.
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Nearly two decades after the Aryan Nations’ Idaho compound was demolished, far-right extremists are maintaining a presence in the Pacific Northwest.
White nationalism has been on the rise across the U.S., but it has particular resonance along the Idaho-Washington border, where the Aryans espoused hate and violence for years.
The neo-Nazi group was based near Hayden Lake, Idaho, starting in the 1970s, and eventually was bankrupted in a lawsuit brought by local activists and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Its compound was seized, and supporters dispersed.

Months after releasing an ad shaming all men for being ‘toxic’ pigs (while curiously cutting out a scene from the original ad featuring a booty-grabbing fake rap video), Gillette wants female-to-male trans individuals to know that once those hormones kick in, they’ve got your shaving needs covered.
Their new advertisement features the moment a loving dad teaches his transgender son, Samson Brown, how to shave for the first time, according to Gaystar News.
“I’m at the point in my manhood where I’m actually happy. It’s not just myself transitioning, it’s everybody around me transitioning,” says Samson.”
