'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.

Microsoft is expanding a program that gives schools the ability to prevent ads from appearing in search results when they use its Bing search engine. The project, started in a pilot program this year, is now available to all American schools, public or private.

The program is meant to ensure a safer online environment for children while promoting the use of Bing.

Microsoft Corp. is giving away a first-generation Surface tablet computer to schools in which community members sign up to use the ad-supported version of Bing outside of the school.
