On the night of November 25th 2016, I walked out of Sunset Place in South Miami after watching a film with my childhood best friend, and had expected the day to be of importance to me simply because I felt like my breath had been taken away by the stunning visual effects and spirited Polynesian chants of Disney’s “Moana”, when suddenly, a buzz from my phone:
The New York Times Reports: Fidel Castro, Cuban Revolutionary Who Defied U.S., Dies At 90!

Che Guevara? Fidel Castro? Are they just icons or men in stickers? In a moment where the Left wing movements in Latin America are losing power against Right-Wing governments – Kirchner against Macri in Argentina, Mujica against Tabaré Vazquez in Uruguay; Ricardo Lagos in Chile, maybe –  , we should ask ourselves what Latin America populations remembers from Cuban revolution of 1959?  As reported in Spanish newspaper El Mundo.

Last week, marijuana stocks in Canada skyrocketed suddenly, despite evident indications that the government plans to go slow in its promise to legalize recreational marijuana use (scheduled for next Spring). The increases may have gotten a boost from pot legalization votes in four U.S. states, Colorado and Oregon. In Canada, marijuana comes under federal jurisdiction, unlike in the United States, where regulation is shared by the states and federal government.

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.

“Un adolescente sin hogar no se parece a lo que probablemente te imagines como un adolescente sin hogar”, explica John Ducoff, director ejecutivo de Covenant House Pennsylvania. “Los adolescentes y los niños se preocupan mucho por las apariencias y por cómo son percibidos. Por esta razón, se vuelven una comunidad invisible, y nuestra misión es sacarlos de la sombra”.

“A homeless teen isn’t what you probably think a homeless teen looks like,”John Ducoff, the Executive Director of Covenant House Pennsylvania, explains.“Teens and kids care too much about keeping up with appearances and how they’re perceived. For that reason, they remain an invisible community, and our mission is to bring them out of the shadows.”
