Illinois Farmers React to Trump’s Subsidies Amid Trade Dispute; ‘A World Without:’ Space For The Dead; Global Notes: “Sunfest” is Canada’s Rising World Music Festival

MEXICO OVERFLOWING CEMETERIES
In this Oct. 14, 2014 photo, a coffin containing human remains is carried away after being exhumed to free up space for new burials at the San Isidro cemetery in northern Mexico City. The remains were then placed in a plastic bag to be delivered to the family of the deceased. A proposed law would require that the city government educate people about cremation as an option and build more crematoriums. It would also lower the maximum gravesite tenure from 21 years to 15 years, as long as cemetery rights are paid. AP Photo
