[OP-ED]: La madre de todos los ‘blufs’

 04/19/2017 - 08:02
Afortunadamente, no es solo el pánico lo que se expande, también lo hace la resistencia, que cada día crece y se fortalece. Y eso es muy bueno.
Spanish

Sí, eso es lo que retórica recalentada de Washington sobre Corea del Norte –a la que el país asiático responde en tonos igualmente belicosos – es en realidad: una sucia guerra de palabras. Pero puede estar seguro de que no están a punto de intercambiarse balas, cohetes, la madre de todas las bombas y mucho menos armas atómicas. Lo cual, por supuesto, es muy bueno.

Yes, that’s what the heated rhetoric coming from Washington about North Korea –and being responded to in no less bellicose tones by the Asian country – is: a nasty war of words. Rest assured that no bullets, no rockets, no mother of all bombs, not to mention atomic weapons are about to be fired, dropped or exchanged. Which, of course, is great.

[OP-ED]: Are living standards truly stagnant?

 04/13/2017 - 08:14
A causa del aumento de la desigualdad, muchos norteamericanos “se sienten peor ... incluso cuando su consumo material de bienes esté aumentando.” O quizás sea la decepción. La gente obtuvo menos de lo que esperaba, y el ritmo del cambio fue tan lento que pareció un estancamiento.
English

It may turn out that the widespread belief that most Americans’ incomes have stagnated for years is, well, false or at least overstated.

The rise in inequality may make Americans “feel worse ... even if their material goods consumption is rising.” Or maybe it’s just disappointment. People got less than they expected, and the pace of change was so slow that it seemed like stagnation.

In a groundbreaking decision, New York state’s 2017-2018 budget earmarks $10 million to provide free legal assistance to immigrants, $4 million of which have specifically been assigned to provide lawyers to all immigrants at risk of deportation by expanding the Vera Institute of Justice’s New York Immigrant Family Unity Project (NYIFUP).
