¿Un nuevo muro de los lamentos?

 01/26/2017 - 16:37

El estandarte de la campaña electoral de Trump fue la promesa de un muro que atravesara toda la frontera entre los Estados Unidos y México, cuyo costo sería tomado por el país centroamericano.

Tras su sorpresiva victoria en los comicios presidenciales, el ahora Presidente Donald Trump, demuestra ser un hombre de palabra.

[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.

Réquiem por 'El Diario'

 04/23/2016 - 16:47
El Diario arribó a 103 años informando, de manera contínua, a la comunidad hispana de Nueva York.

Igual que lo que puede pasar con el resto de la prensa en español de los Estados Unidos que este periódico neoyorquino ha representado por más de 100 años, la muerte gradual de la casa editorial latina más antigua del país es algo que, tristemente, puede ser el comienzo del fin de una era para los medios hispanos de todo el país.

Requiem for 'El Diario'

 04/20/2016 - 09:23
El Diario has had a history of continuously publishing the daily news of the Spanish-speaking community in the capital of the world for the past 103 years.

News of the gradual death of the oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country is something that, sadly, could be the beginning of the end of an era for Hispanic print media in the United States.

Just like it could happen to the rest of the Latino press in the US — which this newspaper has represented for over a 100 years — news of the gradual death of the oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country is something that, sadly, could be the beginning of the end of an era for U.S. Hispanic media.

An American saint of Latino descent: Father Félix Varela

 03/22/2016 - 14:15
Padre Felix Varela started his American journey right here in Philadelphia, in 1824, when he came to our city that year in search for a printer to publish a little journal with a huge vision he called “El Habanero.” Above, a painting of Varela, in an artistic rendition by local artist Orlando Quevedo, displayed in AL DIA News Media office in downtown Philadelphia. To the right, the cover of the first issue of "El Habanero," printed in Old City in 1824.

Although his sainthood is yet to be declared by the Catholic Church, miracles abound in the life of Father Felix Varela, the champion of thousands of Irish immigrants who in the 19th century suffered, fought and, eventually, prevailed in carving out their own space in the American society, just as Latinos are doing today.
