There are futbol teams that have stars such as Ronaldo, Messi, and Neymar that can fill stadiums every week and can win major titles almost every year. On the other hand, there are teams that build from the ground up piece by piece who can only dream of reaching a playoff position but will keep battling till the final whistle.

William Finnegan, winner of the Pulitzer prize for Biography 2016, was born into an Irish Catholic family from New York and they moved to Hawaii when he was a kid. He remembers going to the church on Sunday and going to beach to surf afterwards. Since his early years, Finnegan has tried to combine his two life passions: surfing and journalism. He has covered the Apartheid, Balkan wars and Latin American Politics:  “Power tends to corrupt people and absolute power tends to corrupt in absolute terms.

Filantropía en la era de la diversidad

Filantropía en la era de la diversidad
Spanish

El mundo de la filantropía evoca imágenes de hombres y mujeres adinerados luciendo tuxedos y pieles en fiestas y galas de lujo. El estereotipo es merecido - generaciones de ricos patrones donando generosamente su dinero y prestigio a un selecto grupo de fundaciones, año tras año, creando un sólido sistema, aunque también elitista, rehogado en una buena dosis de tradición y ego.

Philantropies in the age of diversity
English

The world of philanthropy conjures images of well-heeled men and women donning tuxedos and furs at fancy galas. The stereotype is well-deserved - generations of wealthy patrons lavishly contributed money and prestige to a select group of foundations over the generations, creating a robust yet exclusionary system steeped in tradition and ego.

The Goal For Unity

 10/19/2016 - 02:32

The quarterfinals of the 2016 Philadelphia Unity Cup took place on the LaSalle University campus in Northwest Philadelphia. One group of combatants on the pitch were that of a prized fight while the other group could have been a “David vs. Goliath” type of battle.

 The first match began with the United States versus Ukraine. Both teams made their way into the quarterfinals with victories over Spain and Italy respectively in the knockout rounds last week. Throughout the game, each team took turns in finding ways to penetrate through the defenses.
