The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the Hispanic population in the U.S. will reach 132.8 million (or 30 percent of the total U.S. population) by the year 2050.   But Latino students, along with other minorities, continue to be underrepresented in the STEM disciplines and to receive STEM degrees at a lower rate than their White counterparts. Latino students are more likely than Whites to be exposed to funding inequities and to have science teachers who did not major in science.

The cheapest trip to Mars probably won’t leave from Cape Canaveral but from a tiny Indian island called Sriharikota. The island has become the Launchpad of the Indian Space Program, that has shot more than 120 satellites into orbit until today, and at a much more competitive price than its competitors.

India competes for commercial launches with space agencies in Europe and Japan, and with private players such as Elon Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp. and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin LLC.

Filantropía en la era de la diversidad

Filantropía en la era de la diversidad
Undefined

El mundo de la filantropía evoca imágenes de hombres y mujeres adinerados luciendo tuxedos y pieles en fiestas y galas de lujo. El estereotipo es merecido - generaciones de ricos patrones donando generosamente su dinero y prestigio a un selecto grupo de fundaciones, año tras año, creando un sólido sistema, aunque también elitista, rehogado en una buena dosis de tradición y ego.

Philantropies in the age of diversity

Philantropies in the age of diversity
Undefined

The world of philanthropy conjures images of well-heeled men and women donning tuxedos and furs at fancy galas. The stereotype is well-deserved - generations of wealthy patrons lavishly contributed money and prestige to a select group of foundations over the generations, creating a robust yet exclusionary system steeped in tradition and ego.

“By watching and by doing it,” as we practice in the AL DÍA shop, seems to be the learning technique fishermen have prefered in the Caribbean Ocean for centuries.

[OP-ED] “Billenials” Are the Best Hope for Our City

 08/30/2016 - 04:50

The "billenials" are, by definition, hybrid creatures that share more than one culture and speak more than one language. This is becoming more commonplace in Philadelphia among the newest, youngest residents of the city.

This is the new face of the "City of Brotherly Love"— and "Sisterly affection." It is a gift to our city. Our local leaders must be aware of it so that they can engage them and make them a pole of development in our beloved city.
