The popular US vintage cars of the 1940s and '50s, still seen driving around the streets of Cuba, played the leading role at the CubaNostalgia fair in Miami. The CubaNostalgia program commemorates the independence of the Caribbean country that is celebrated every May 20.

[OP-ED]: The perils of assuming anything about the Latino vote

 05/18/2017 - 08:20
You don’t need to be a political scientist to figure out a few simple truths: In raw numbers, more and more Hispanics will cast ballots in upcoming elections -- as has been the case for the past 36 years.
English

At the outset of their new book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes note that adviser David Plouffe prioritized three goals for Clinton to win: “It was important to have the right culture and mission, to manage Bill Clinton, and to effectively target Latino voters.”

We know how well that turned out.

[OP-ED]: Los peligros de hacer suposiciones sobre el voto latino

 05/17/2017 - 12:58
No es necesario ser un politólogo para darse cuenta de algunas verdades simples: En números brutos, más y más hispanos emitirán votos en elecciones futuras—como ha ocurrido en los últimos 36 años. 
Spanish

En el inicio de su nuevo libro, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign”, Jonathan Allen y Amie Parnes señalan que el asesor David Plouffe priorizó tres objetivos para que Clinton ganara: “Era importante tener la cultura y la misión adecuadas, manejar a Bill Clinton y procurar eficazmente a los electores latinos.”

Sabemos lo bien que resultó eso.

[OP-ED]: The elite media -- self-absorbed but not self-aware

 05/12/2017 - 09:17
Now that Trump is president, you can turn to just about any channel -- absent Fox News -- and hear reporters and anchors accusing Trump or other administration officials of outright lying or pursuing policies that will hurt people -- or, in the case of the GOP health care bill, actually kill them. 
English

Riddle me this: How can the so-called elite media be so self-absorbed and still have so little self-awareness? 

Today’s journalists too often make themselves the story. If a reporter gets arrested at a protest, he’ll be on the Sunday shows doing what he is not supposed to be doing: expressing his opinion.

[OP-ED]: Los medios de elite, ensimismados pero sin conocerse a sí mismos

 05/12/2017 - 08:47
Ahora que Trump es presidente, uno puede prender casi cualquier canal—menos Fox News—para escuchar a reporteros y locutores que acusan a Trump o a otros funcionarios del gobierno directamente de mentir o de perseguir políticas que perjudicarán a las personas—o, en el caso de la ley de asistencia médica del Partido Republicano, que en realidad las matará. 
Spanish

 Aclárenme lo siguiente: ¿Cómo pueden, los así llamados medios de elite, estar tan ensimismados y al mismo tiempo conocerse tan poco a sí mismos? 

Los periodistas de hoy a menudo se convierten en la noticia. Si arrestan a un reportero en una manifestación, ese individuo se presenta después en los programas del domingo haciendo lo que no debe hacer: expresando su opinión.

[OP-ED]: Will robots dis-employ us all?

 05/11/2017 - 10:11
The robots won’t steal all our jobs, because their efficiencies will create more purchasing power for other spending or new products that require human involvement and oversight. For proof, consider smartphones. In 2012, they had created nearly 500,000 jobs for “mobile apps,” up from zero in 2007.
English

 We have yet another study that debunks the widespread notion that robots -- and other forms of automation, including “artificial intelligence” -- will destroy our jobs and lead to a future of permanently high unemployment. According to the study, that would completely rewrite history, which has shown job creation to be an enduring strength of the U.S. economy.

[OP-ED]: How to laugh off the foolishness of Cinco de Mayo

 05/04/2017 - 08:25
Every May there is an increase in the ridiculousness of the costumes and advertising tie-ins for non-Hispanics to revel in -- and, perversely, it seems to coincide with how poorly actual Mexicans are treated in this country. File
English

Last year at this time, Donald Trump loomed over a taco bowl at Trump Tower and tweeted out the message: “Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!”

[OP-ED]: Cómo reírse de las tonterías del Cinco de Mayo

 05/04/2017 - 08:20
Todos los años, en mayo, hay un aumento en la ridiculez de los disfraces y de los avisos para que los no-hispanos celebren—y, contra toda lógica, parece coincidir con la lamentable manera en que se trata a los mexicanos reales en el país. Archivo
Spanish

El año pasado, en este época, Donald Trump, frente a un bol de tacos en Trump Tower, envió el siguiente mensaje por Twitter: “¡Feliz #Cinco de Mayo! Los mejores boles de tacos se hacen en Trump Tower Grill. ¡Me encantan los hispanos!”
