A huge toddler now peers over the US-Mexico border wall in California

TECATE, Calif. (AP)– A photo of a giant young child stands in Mexico and peers over a steel wall dividing the country from the United States.

The young boy appears to grip the barrier with his fingers, leaving the impression the entire thing could be toppled with a laugh.

A French artist who passes the name “JR” set up the cut-out of the kid that stands nearly 65 feet (20 meters) high and is meant to prompt discussion of migration.

Click on this link to see an image of the mural On Friday, a consistent stream of people drove to the remote section of wall near the Tecate border crossing, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of San Diego. Border Patrol agents alerted visitors to keep the dirt roadway clear for their patrols and not pass anything through the fence.

Elmond Davantes, a software application designer from Carlsbad, California, took images from the United States side.

“It’s bigger than life,” he stated. “It just draws attention to the entire problem in a positive method.”

of the mural On the Mexican side, families rushed down a scrubby hillside to take selfies with the artwork. Children in school uniforms played tag under the scaffolding supporting the image.

People on each side of the wall waved to each other.

Salma Montoya, 18, a student in Tecate stated her town is abuzz about it.

“It’s beautiful,” she said.

JR has done other large-scale pictures around the globe, with much of his current work focused on immigrants.

He told reporters at Wednesday’s unveiling of the picture that he was spurred by a dream where he thought of a kid examining the border wall.

“When I awakened, I questioned: ‘What was he thinking?'” he said. “Like for us we understand all the implications, exactly what it represents, how it divides, but for a kid, I didn’t have the response.”

A year later on when JR was scouting for the perfect spot for his task, he noticed a house in Tecate near the border wall. He and a Mexican buddy knocked on the door to see about the possibility of locating it around there. After they repelled, it occurred to him that the 1-year-old at the house who had been staring at them reminded him of the boy he had actually dreamed about.

JR and his friend right away returned. JR asked the woman if he might photograph her child. She knew his work and concurred.

The artwork was revealed the week President Donald Trump said he would end a program that has enabled young immigrants who were brought to America unlawfully as kids to remain in the nation.

The administration likewise accepted more proposals for its plans to build a continuous wall along the nearly 2,000-mile border.

JR said he did not mean for the job in Tecate to coincide with the news about the Deferred Action for Youth Arrivals program, known as DACA.

JR has worked for years to highlight the “Ellis Islands of today,” which has actually taken him from the shores of Italy where migrants have been getting here by boat from Africa to the California desert.

“Now as an artist I believe that it’s fantastic that the piece reached a minute when it produces more discussion,” he said. “Because the concept itself is to raise more concerns.”

For artists and activists, the 650 miles of existing wall and fencing in between the United States and Mexico has long been a blank canvas.

Artists have played simultaneously on both sides. A huge wooden Trojan-style horse was once parked near a crossing in Tijuana. There have actually been volleyball video games and church services held all at once on each side of the border.

Sections of wall on the Mexican side have been covered with paintings of whatever from butterflies to an upside-down American flag.

JR has put up other massive pictures in the slums of Paris, from the top of buildings in Rio de Janeiro, and set up huge image booths from Israel and Palestine to the United States.

The most recent piece will stay in Tecate for a month. JR hopes people will see it from each side.

Toddler in body cast after jumping at trampoline park

By Associated Press

MIAMI (AP)– A 3-year-old Florida boy remains in a cast from the waist down for an injury suffered while leaping at a trampoline park, his household stated Tuesday, in a case that has actually distributed nationally on social media and raised questions about age constraints for the activity.

Kaitlin Hill said her kid Colton broke his thigh bone late last month while bouncing on a trampoline at an indoor park in Tampa that promoted the use of trampolines by toddlers, despite the recommendations of some medical organizations.

Hill alerted other households not to enable kids on trampolines in a wholehearted Facebook post that has been shared more than 235,000 times.”We hope by sharing his story it will prevent a kid and their family from experiencing the trauma and heartbreak related to trampoline injuries in children,” Hill wrote. Hill, a 29-year-old nurse, said an orthopedic cosmetic surgeon told them the repetitive pressure from jumping might have caused the fracture. Medical professionals put Colton in a hip spica cast for 6 weeks, and he has to use diapers again and travel in an unique broad car seat.

“We do not leave your house other than going to medical professionals’ appointments. You can picture exactly what is like for an active 3-year-old to be constrained in nearly a full-body cast. It’s terrible,” Hill informed The Associated Press. “Each and every single night, he gets only four or five hours of sleep since he awakens reliving the event.”

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons states children younger than 6 years of ages should not be permitted on trampolines. Meanwhile, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests versus leisure trampoline use for any age, but states the smallest jumpers are at greater threat.

The pediatrics group warned last year that emergency-room gos to from trampoline parks users have actually skyrocketed from 581 in 2010 to 6,932 in 2014 as the popularity of the facilities has actually grown. Home trampolines are still behind most of the injuries with more than 90,000 cases, however that number has stayed constant for several years.

Scientists have required more investigation and actions to avoid injuries at trampoline parks, saying there are no constant guidelines for organisations to follow.

The International Association of Trampoline Parks, based in Hershey, Pennsylvania, did not respond to ask for remark.

Dr. Armin Tehrany, an orthopedic surgeon and creator of Manhattan Orthopedic Care, said the repeated motions from bouncing can trigger major injuries with bones twisting or breaking. He stated doctors would like for parks to do a better task at disclosing the medical academies’ suggestions, particularly in keeping kids far from trampolines.
