Cipriano "Pano" Santos has recently received one of the two top awards for technological achievement in 2004, given by the Hispanic Engineers National Achievement Awards Corporation. "I wanted to be an astronaut," he recalled recently, sitting in his cubicle at Hewlett-Packard Labs in Palo Alto. "But, as you can see, that goal was not going to be too realistic."

AP- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger moved quickly Wednesday to apologize for suggesting that California's border with Mexico should be closed in an effort to solve the nation's illegal immigration problem. Schwarzenegger said he misspoke in comments to newspaper editors and publishers Tuesday, intending to say the border should be secured. The governor blamed the error on his sometimes flawed use of English — his second language.
"Yesterday was a total screw-up in the words I used," the… Continue

A new scholarship is being sponsored by Zubi Advertising for students in Florida State University's Hispanic marketing program.
It's one of Michelle Zubizarreta's biggest exasperations in her job as chief administrative officer at Zubi Advertising -- finding people who can read, write and speak Spanish, relate to the U.S. Hispanic bicultural experience and who can translate it all into advertising.
That's why the Coral Gables-based agency is ponying up $10,000 to fund… Continue

Until his recent appointment as prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship, Cardinal Arinze had served as president of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue. He was consecrated as bishop in 1965 at the age of… Continue

Saint Mary's Catholic Church downtown is holding special prayer services this week in English and Spanish. Pope John Paul II had somewhat of a special relationship with Mexican Catholics because he went to Mexico five times between 1979 and 2002. That makes the loss especially difficult for Hispanics in Indianapolis.
