In the morning, it was the dog that woke him up, in bed, where they exchanged their first greetings. One of the owner's extravagances was giving it his own name; but, he explained it for two reasons, one doctrinal, another particular (...).
- You should laugh, my dear. Because immortality is my lot or my dowry, or as best name there is. I will live perpetually in my book. Those who, however, do not can read, charlatan Quincas Borba to the dog, and ...

THE STORY OF ELLIS ISLAND
Mass migrations have marked the history of the human race ever since people began to dream of a better life
Migration is in the news these days, as Donald Trump tries to set up new physical and administrative barriers
against people wanting to enter the USA – mostly from Central America, Asia and Africa. But a century ago, the USA
welcomed immigrants, most of them people from Europe who were migrating in mass, looking for a better life in the
USA. Ellis Island, the small island in New York Harbor was, for millions of would-be immigrants, their first experience
 of the promised land.
The year is 1906, the date November 16th. Franz and Ulrike Schumacher and their three children have just
disembarked from the Hamburg-Amerika line steamship that has carried them across the stormy North Atlantic
Ocean from Germany.
Like the thousands of other people milling around them, they are totally bewildered, caught up in a mixture of
 hope and apprehension, as they crowd into a vast waiting room. The room sounds like the Tower of Babel, for few of
those in it speak a word of English. They speak German, Polish, Dutch, Hungarian, or Russian maybe, yet they have
come, seeking a new life in a new world; and now they are on American soil for the first time. This is America!
America! Or at least it is Ellis Island.
After interminable hours of waiting, the Schumacher family are finally called to a desk; immigration officials
 study their papers, and ask them where they intend to go. They don't ask how long they're planning to stay, however,
since they know the answer already. All those who pass through Ellis Island – and that could mean over 11,000
people per day – are would-be immigrants. They are looking to start a new life in a new world.
For many, passing through Ellis Island was not so much a matter of stepping into a new world, it was stepping
into a new life, a new character. And so it was that the man who finally led his family through the door and onto the
 ferry packed with a jostling crowd of new Americans was not Franz Schumacher any more, but Frank Shoemaker,
even if he still didn't understand more than a couple of words of English.

TILLERSON CONDEMNS RACISM, CALLS FOR NATIONAL RECONCILIATION
U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, issued a forceful condemnation of
"bigotry in all its forms" on Friday and called for national reconciliation as he
promised to work toward making the government with greater minority
 Tillerson invoked the 1865 second inaugural address by Abraham Lincoln, the
president who freed the slaves and presided over the Civil War against
rebellious pro-slavery Confederate Southern States.
As the war drew to a close, Lincoln asked the nation to bind up its wounds
from the conflict, Tillerson noted.
 "We, too, today should seek to bind up the wounds," Tillerson said. "We must
pursue reconciliation, understanding and respect regardless of skin color,
ethnicity or religious or political views."
He added: "Racism is evil; it is antithetical to America's values. It's antithetical
to the American idea."
 Tillerson said one of America's defining characteristics "is the promise of the
opportunity for advancement regardless of your skin color, how much money
your parents make or where you came from."
He announced a new State Department policy in which at least one candidate
for any opening for an ambassador post must be a minority, noting that
 currently only about 12 percent of U.S. senior foreign service officers are
"The State Department must redouble our efforts to increase diversity at the
highest ranks of the department, including at the ambassador level," Tillerson
 Statistics published by the State Department show that as of the end of June,
88 percent of senior foreign service officers - the high-ranking diplomats
from which the country's ambassadors are drawn - are white and 4 percent
are black. One-third of senior foreign service officers are women, and 7
percent of the agency's civil service members are Hispanic.
 To remedy the lack of diversity, Tillerson said he had told committees that
nominate ambassadorial candidates at least one candidate for each opening
must be a member of a minority group.
