EMILY BERL FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES Last month, Ms. Mateo was officially sworn in as a lawyer, taking an oath to uphold the United States Constitution.

LOS ANGELES โ€” She spends her days preparing legal strategies to help undocumented immigrants stay in the country. But at any moment, Lizbeth Mateo could be picked up for deportation herself.

After years of flaunting her status as undocumented and openly defying immigration law, she is now part of the legal system and hopes to represent clients who, like her, entered the United States illegally. Allowing undocumented immigrants to work as lawyers is a sign of just how far the acceptance of such immigrants has come in places like California. When Kevin de Leรณn, the leader of the California State Senate, presided over Ms. Mateoโ€™s swearing-in ceremony, he called her the embodiment of the American dream. But Ms. Mateo is setting out to practice law in a new era: President Trump, whose vows to seal off the border with a wall energized supporters, has made clear that all undocumented immigrants could be deported. Some immigrants have responded by going into hiding while others prepare to return home. Source: NY Times

Arsenal, Batman, and Climbing: EXPLOSIVE GEL @HISTORYORTHEBATMAN RAT "What's In That Utility Belt: A History of Batman Gadgets" - Explosive Gel: In August of 2009, Rocksteady Studios with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment developed the video game 'Batman: Arkham Asylum for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The game was written by 'Batman: The Animated Series' Paul Dini , who created an entirely original plot within the Batman mythos. Wanting to have a central focus setting in the game to limit the Dark Knight's access to help within Gotham, 'Arkham Asylum' was visually inspired by stories such as Grant Morrison and Dave McKean's 1989 one shot graphic novel "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth". The voice cast included the original BTAS talents such as Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill @HamillHimself as Joker and Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn. Batman has to fight his way through a Joker controlled Arkham Asylum to stop the detonation of hidden bombs throughout the city of Gotham. In gameplay, Batman's detective skills are enhanced with 'Detective Vision', able to examine objects and individuals providing contextual evidence, and his combat skills are brilliantly showcased with an array of running, kicking, jumping, climbing, and gliding, including dozens of lethal combos, providing a new look into Gotham's infamous insane asylum. Seen in this game and the following sequel and prequel chapters of Arkham City (2011), Arkham Origins (2013) and Arkham Knight (2015), many new gadgets were created to aid the Batman in gameplay, such as Explosive Gel. The Dark Knight would spray an amount of gelignite (in the shape of a crude Bat symbol) on a supposedly weak surface, then would detonate the destructive gel to explode. The Explosive Gel can be used to tear down a surface or used as a weapon against enemies; if henchmen are in the radius of a blast caused by the gadget, it would knock them out temporarily. The Explosive Gel was also an important part in taking down the Titan-enhanced Joker towards the end of "Batman: Arkham Asylum" chapter (clip presented). Even in this highly popular video game franchise, the Caped Crusader's arsenal continues to evolve with the 78 year old character. โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡๐ŸŽฎ
