'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Jay Z commanded a monarchial performance of hits during the Pittsburgh stop on his Magna Carter World Tour at Consol Energy Center on Tuesday night.

Although the arena was only half full, the crowd was on their feet with arms in the air for the opening track “U Don't Know.”

Headlining his first solo tour in four years, Jay Z (Shawn Corey Carter, 44) was joined on stage only by a four-piece band featuring keys, guitar, drums and Timbaland at the turntables.

The star was promoting his 12th studio album released in July. “Magna Carta ... Holy Grail” is up for nine nominations at the Grammy Awards, where Jay Z will perform Jan. 26 at Los Angeles' Staples Center.
