Even before five o'clock in the afternoon, dozens of women with posters, megaphones, and pink caps were being seen walking downtown. The meeting was in Logan Square, in the heart of Philadelphia. The occasion? Well, that depends on the perspective: for an unaware bystander (who generally has no perspective), it was one more celebration of International Women's Day. On the other hand, for those with a gender perspective, "celebration" is not a word that does justice to March 8th.

Desde antes de las cinco de la tarde ya empezaban a verse, caminando por el centro, a decenas de mujeres armadas de carteles, megáfonos y gorros color rosa. La cita era en la glorieta de Logan Square, en pleno corazón de Filadelfia. ¿La ocasión? Bueno, eso depende de la perspectiva: para el transeúnte desprevenido (que generalmente no tiene perspectiva), se trató de una celebración más del Día Internacional de la Mujer. En cambio, para quienes tienen perspectiva –sobre todo de género–, “celebración” no es una palabra que le hace justicia al 8 de marzo.

A Trump Museum?

 It seems president-Elect Donald Trump doesn't get enough public attention and now a group of people is banking on Donald Trump's Atlantic City legacy to build up a museum in his honor that would help boost business in the ailing seaside resort.

The group's leaders say a museum about the former gambling tycoon in Atlantic City would accomplish two goals.

Philadelphia lost this week one of his most distinguished men of letters. Peter Husted Binzen, a former journalist and editor at The Evening and Sunday Bulletin, died at 94, after chronicling the history of our city for half a century. Joseph R. Daughen, a former Bulletin reporter who collaborated with Mr. Binzen on two books, said he thought of his comrade as "Lincolnesque" - honest and humble.

Those years of the Latin American Boom in Barcelona

The statue of Columbus pointing to America is probably one of the most emblematic monuments of Barcelona. It is located at the end of the Ramblas, in front of the old port, from where today you can board Las Golondrinas, a popular touristic boat. In that same place, coming from the same direction to which the finger of Columbus is still pointing, the Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa landed for the first time in Barcelona in 1958. On that occasion the author arrived from Lima and was going to Madrid to study at the Complutense.

Aquellos años del Boom en Barcelona

La estatua de Cristóbal Colón con el dedo índice apuntando a América es probablemente uno de los monumentos más emblemáticos de Barcelona. Está situada al final de la Rambla, frente al puerto viejo, desde donde hoy zarpan unas embarcaciones de recreo llamadas Las Golondrinas, muy concurridas entre los turistas. En ese mismo lugar, procedente de la misma dirección a la que sigue apuntando el dedo de Colón, desembarcó por primera vez a Barcelona el escritor peruano Mario Vargas Llosa, en 1958.

Can you recognize a Latino in the street?

Can you recognize a Latino in the street?
Undefined

Unlike other immigrants, to be a Latino is still a matter of phenotypes.

On our daily routine, the impressive wave of people that we meet and with whom we briefly share stations, sidewalks, benches and classrooms, turns out to be a diverse truss, rich in colors, nationalities, accents and idiosyncrasies.
