Closing the digital divide one government app at a time

Welcome to the brave new world of social (media) government -- a world where you can use mobile phone apps to get information from Uncle Sam so you don't actually have to talk to him.

On July 2, the White House relaunched its usa.gov website and rolled out 20 sleek new multiplatform apps that allow phones to perform wonders such as reading bar-codes and searching the database of Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls, and getting up-to-the minute travel advisories from the Transportation Security Administration.

Pitting Union Workers Against Non-Union Workers: The New Union Anti-Immigrant Tactic

 08/12/2010 - 14:48

It's bad enough that Arizona is going crazy with xenophobia. Now that virus has spread to our own backyards—to our local unions.  It's all a bit perplexing, since so many immigrants, legal and illegal alike, belong to unions and are even courted by these very unions in their attempt to recruit more members. In fact, during the immigration marches several years ago unions marched in support of immigration reform and legalization. Even now, with the increasingly depressed economy, many still remain committed to a legalization program. However, there are bad apples everywhere and apparently some have dropped off of the trees in the greater Delaware Valley

En la yerbería, como en varios negocios hispanos de Phoenix, no hay casi clientes. María, la encargada, dice que muchos de los que sí vienen compran el aceite o la veladora "Contra la Ley" que usualmente usan si enfrentan algún caso legal.

The Arizona Fear Factor in Philadelphia

 07/22/2010 - 07:05

As you walk anywhere in the greater Philadelphia community, you can almost smell and taste the fear. It's a new smell and taste for Philadelphians since we are largely an optimistic city, a city that has made its peace with being the forgotten city, the city located right smack in the middle of our glitzier sister cities, New York and D.C. Philadelphians firmly believe that we are better than our larger neighboring cities for we, the city of brotherly love, know how to treat our friends, our

The Nutter Administration's July 4th Declaration of Independence from Fear in Philadelphia

In 1776 our forefathers, fearful of and angry with British control of
their land, issued the following Declaration of Independence: When,
in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to
dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and
to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station
to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent
respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the
causes which impel them to the separation.

Latinos following Irish immigrants' path to power

DUBLIN, Ireland -- This column is a love note to the country that has -- more than any other -- made Chicago what it is today: a city defined by a group of immigrants who came to the U.S. tired and poor but overcame institutionalized discrimination to become a politically empowered majority.
