First Lady Michelle Obama wasn’t scheduled to speak at La Salle University until noon on Wednesday, September 28, but according to students and security, the eager crowd was lining up outside the arena as early as midnight the night before. Although Obama was not there on her own behalf—she is one of Hillary Clinton’s chosen campaign surrogates, and will spend the weeks leading up to the election speaking in swing states to the merits of her husband’s former rival—the excitement in the mostly young, very diverse crowd was palpable.

Abre exposición de Jacqueline Unanue, artista chilena, en St. Asaph Gallery

 09/20/2016 - 16:34

Mientras el aula redonda de St. Asaph Gallery se llenaba con espectadores, sus ventanas quedaban abiertas a las brisas del verano moribundo, detalle que al primero me permitió confundir las pinturas recién colgadas entre ellas con unas ventanas más.

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.
