Math has already been used effectively in defining protected areas in places with productive activities in 150 countries over the past 15 years. The best example of that application is Australia's Great Barrier Reef, where a software called Marxan permitted the expansion of protected areas from 5 percent to 35 percent while preserving species and improving fishing.

Ellen Ochoa, the first Hispanic woman to travel in space, became a member of the US Astronaut Hall of Fame, an elite group created to pay tribute to US explorers of outer space.
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.

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.
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.
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.
This was the text of my introduction speech at the first annual “Latino History Awards Luncheon”, hosted by AL DIA News at the Union League Club of Philadelphia, on September 21st, 2016
The official recording of the science we now called History began 484 years before Jesus Christ.
