Una temporada de primeros

 11/08/2016 - 10:02

La temporada inaugural de la Copa de la Unidad Internacional de Filadelfia fue una fanfarria para todas las culturas. El día comenzó con una reunión deportiva de los equipos que participaron en el torneo. El aroma que se respiraba desde cada uno de los puestos de comida, así como también los diversos tipos de actividades para niños, daban la sensación de estar en una atmósfera festiva que se observa también en otras actividades de deportes profesionales.

The inaugural season of the Philadelphia International Unity Cup was a fanfare for all cultures. The day began with a tailgate-style gathering of the teams that participated in the tournament. The aroma coming from different food trucks as well as the different types of activities for children gave the feeling of a party-like atmosphere that you would see in other professional sports venues.

OP-ED: Sr. Lee Iacocca, por favor visítenos en el Filadelfia Latino

Me encontré con este libro de nuevo esta semana, inicialmente lo recogí hace varios años en una tienda de Barnes & Noble en Filadelfia.

Es un libro que el ex director general de la Corporación Chrysler, el Sr. Lee Iacocca, escribió, después de su cambio mágico y también polémico de la empresa fabricante de automóviles, quien es una de las "Tres Grandes" en Estados Unidos.

OP-ED: Mr. Lee Iacocca, please come visit us in Latino Philadelphia

 08/23/2016 - 15:44

I came across this book again this week, after I first picked it up several years ago in a Barnes & Noble Store in Philadelphia.

It is a book the former CEO of Chrysler Corporation, Lee Iacocca, wrote, after his magical and also controversial turnaround of the car manufacturer company, one of the "Big Three" in America.

Lee Ioccoca, born in Allentown, PA. wrote his book "where have all the leaders gone" well after his retirement as the auto industry leader he was, made famous by the turn around of Chrysler. Latino leaders in Philadelphia could learn a lesson or two from Lee, who is being invited by AL DIA to come to visit us in Philadelphia. Stay tuned.

[OP-ED]: Why I failed to become an Engineer..

 08/16/2016 - 17:33

Well, there were already 2 in my family. 

My brother Agustín, Electrical Engineer, and my brother Raúl, who just retired from his noble profession, after a long and meritorious career as a Mechanical Engineer.

At age 16, I wanted to be, if not "somebody", at least somebody else.

Make my life count for something —not like in an act of heroism— but, in a more earthly purpose, to avoid being a blatant redundancy.

Or perhaps, God forbids, a plain-vanilla, mediocre, self-conceited brat.

In 2008, The AL DÍA Foundation, a non profit organization founded by Hernán Guaracao, presented the first two awards, worth $20,000, to two distinguishing journalists, both of them from California. Far right, Matt O’Brien, from Daily Review, and Claudia Núñez, from La Opinion, with the Félix Varela medals which accompanied the cash award of $10,000 each. At the center, Alberto Ibargüen, president & CEO of the Knight Foundation, and Zita Arocha, professor of the University of Texas at the presentation of the Varela Awards, at Temple University. Arocha, of Cuban origin, is juror of this award, alongside journalists Albor Ruiz, Emilio Sanchez and Linn Washington. Instead of engineering, Hernán chose to reward the good “engineers of the language,” acknowledging those who use it for the purpose of divulging the little known reality of the latino community of the United States.
