[OP-ED]: Our Education, Born from Swamps

 05/15/2017 - 15:27

The struggle to obtain a stable education is a story of overcoming conditions that are less than favorable, much like the swamp plant. What is causing these students, especially Latinos, to fall behind? How can they grow from these meager and impoverished conditions?

The recent Republican debacle on health care could prove to be an opportunity. It highlighted, yet again, the complexity of America’s system, which continues to be by far the most expensive and inefficient in the advanced world.

[OP-ED]: A familiar voice with an all-too-familiar story

 04/06/2017 - 11:02
Ray Suárez es un verdadero periodista. Tras ascender superando dificultades en los años 70 y 80 -cuando la frase ‘reportero de televisión’ conjuraba imágenes de Mike Wallace y Harry Reasoner y no la de un muchacho puertorriqueño de Brooklyn- este veterano de 60 años es simplemente la norma a la que muchos jóvenes periodistas latinos aún aspiran. youtube.com
English

Best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell says it takes around 10,000 hours of practice to master a craft. 

But there’s a catch. Who’s to say that, by the time you put in the years necessary to get really good at something, you won’t be at an age where it is tough to find gainful employment?

Ray Suarez is a real newsman. Having come up the hard way in the 1970s and ‘80s -- when the phrase “television newscaster” conjured up images of Mike Wallace or Harry Reasoner and not a Puerto Rican kid from Brooklyn -- this 60-year-old veterano is simply the standard to which many young Latino journalists still aspire. Photo: youtube.com

[OP-ED]: Trump’s Latino enablers will be neither forgiven nor forgotten

Latinos are much like the Irish. Both came to America as down-on-their-luck Catholic immigrants from failing countries only to be despised when they got here.
