Alanna Vagianos at HuffPost reports on an upbeat US/Mexico border story. Two California professors unveiled three pink seesaws that rest on the border wall ― a playful and fun way to bring “joy, excitement and togetherness” to families on both sides of the border. Ronald Rael, an architecture professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and Virginia San Fratello, a professor of design at San Jose State, unveiled the three teeter-totters earlier this week in an Instagram post. The installation was built in a slatted border fence that separates Sunland Park, New Mexico, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, according to the University of California Press.
