    Pope Francis, right, boards an Italian Coast Guard boat upon his arrival at the island of Lampedusa, southern Italy, Monday, July 8, 2013. Pope Francis heads Monday to the Sicilian island of Lampedusa for his first pastoral visit outside Rome, going to the farthest reaches of Italy to pray with migrants who have recently arrived and remember those who have died trying. Francis, a pope from "the end of the Earth" whose ancestors immigrated to Argentina from Italy, has a special place in his heart for refugees: As archbishop of Buenos Aires, he denounced the exploitation of migrants as "slavery" and said those who did nothing to stop it were complicit by their silence. On Monday, he will arrive at Lampedusa's port by boat and will throw a floral wreath into the sea in memory of those who died trying to reach the island, which is closer to Africa than the Italian mainland.

    In this March 2, 2013 photo, British tourists look at a mural painted by Italian street artist Blu in Buenos Aires Argentina. Blu painted one of the city's better known pieces of street art on the side of an enormous concrete building once scheduled for demolition in the Villa Urquiza. The 2007 painting shows a giant baby on his back, holding a pill in his right hand. White, black, red and orange dominate the work showing the inside of the child's body invaded by machinery and people pushing wheelbarrows and performing other tasks, alluding to the exploitation and corruption of human beings.

Propelled by improving technology, high global oil prices and the continued exploitation of enormous reserves in several Western states and in the Gulf of Mexico, U.S. domestic oil production is surging so fast, that it could soon overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest producer.
