Rutgers University Launches Black and Latino Tech Initiative

 02/28/2017 - 04:31

Less than 2 percent of all technology start-ups are led by black or Latino individuals, according to a Rutgers University report. The reasons are two-fold: black and Latino entrepreneurs have difficulty securing capital and they also have challenges building business teams that get accepted into top tier accelerators.

[OP-ED]: The TPP lives -- maybe!

 02/16/2017 - 10:32
The US trade deficit of goods and services rose by 0.4% in 2016 to 502.3 billion dollars, which is the highest figure since 2012. The figure corresponds to the last year of government of the former president Barack Obama, who had promised to double the number of US exports by the end of his term in 2010, which has proven to be unfeasible.

Among President Donald Trump’s first acts was an order withdrawing from the TPP. This fulfilled Trump’s campaign promise to torpedo the high-profile agreement between the United States and 11 other Pacific Rim countries, led by Japan and Mexico. As important, it symbolized Trump’s conviction that ineptly negotiated trade agreements are at the core of America’s economy’s problems.

[OP-ED]: Meaningful work need not be ‘fun’

 02/16/2017 - 10:21
Snagging a decent paying job as an accountant, lawyer, engineer, doctor or any sort of analyst takes an awful lot of time and intellectual effort, none of which could accurately be described as “fun.”

My students know I care deeply about them. They know I love to joke around and keep things interesting as we investigate topics they might find dry. But they also know I am waging a one-woman crusade against “fun.”

It’s not that I don’t like to have fun, it’s just that young people moving from high school to college and, ultimately, into adult life have to understand that achievement -- be it academic or career-related -- is hard work. And hard work is many things, like character-building, but rarely is it giggles-all-day fun.

[OP-ED]: El TPP está vivo--quizás

 02/16/2017 - 07:50
El déficit comercial de bienes y servicios de EEUU se elevó en 2016 un 0,4 %, hasta los 502.300 millones de dólares, en lo que se supone la cifra más alta desde 2012. La cifra corresponde al último año de Gobierno del ya ex presidente Barack Obama, quien había prometido duplicar en 2010 la cifra de exportaciones estadounidenses al fin de su mandato, algo que se ha mostrado inviable.

Entre las primeras medidas del presidente Trump estuvo la orden de retirarse del TPP. Eso cumplía la promesa de la campaña de Trump de torpedear ese acuerdo de alto perfil entre Estados Unidos y otros 11 países de la Cuenca del Pacífico, liderados por Japón y México. Igualmente importante, simbolizó la convicción de Trump de que los acuerdos comerciales negociados con ineptitud constituyen la esencia de los problemas económicos de Estados Unidos.
