A Building Full of Hispanic Memories

To many Fort Worthians and tourists who visit the Stock Yards in North Fort Worth probably envision the Cowtown Coliseum (a.k.a. Northside Coliseum) as a place where western rodeos have always been held. To some extent that is true, for it was at the Northside Coliseum where the first indoor rodeo was held in 1918. This historic structure, which was built around 1908, later became the home for the annual Southwestern and Exposition Livestock Show. Eventually, the event moved to the Will Rogers… Continue

Growth in the Foreign-Born Workforce Not Affecting Employment of the Native Born

According to a recent research of the Pew Hispanic Center, rapid increases in the foreign-born population at the state level are not associated with negative effects on the employment of native-born workers, according to a study by the Pew Hispanic Center that examines data during the boom years of the 1990s and the downturn and recovery since 2000.



An analysis of the relationship between growth in the foreign-born population and the employment outcomes of native-born workers… Continue

No Fear!

By Juan J Miret



Living with fear... not an option... Let's be the light in the shadows...



An old Italian saying expresses that the knowledge is the capacity to make wise everyone around.



It is necessary to be the voice of those that cannot speak. VOX POPULI!

It is necessary to walk for those that are chained.

During the month of January of the 2006, a meeting of a xenophobic group, denominated "Minuteman" took place, in the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The… Continue

New CBS reality show creates the illusion of a Hispanic “race”

In an upcoming CBS Survivor series billed as a “battle of the races,” contestants will be divided into four teams: the African-American Tribe, the Asian-American Tribe, the Hispanic Tribe, and the White Tribe. The effect of these groupings is unequivocal. Hispanics are portrayed as a single, separate race. The reality of this reality show, is that nothing could be further from the truth.



Comparing Whites, Blacks, Asians and Hispanics is like comparing apples, oranges, bananas and a… Continue

Hispanic Professionals at odds over Diversity Polices

By Roger Knight



Raul Almengor started in an entry-level position at a Big Four firm after obtaining his BA in Accounting from the local State University. After seven years of moving up the corporate ladder, Raul complains, “I’m tired of feeling like I need to prove myself more than my Anglo peers.” Some of those peers even seem to question his management style as Raul usually develops a close mentor relationship with his subordinates instead of “letting them prove their own value to… Continue

Starting Your Own Nursing Agency a Booming Healthcare Business Opportunity

Changes in the business environment create opportunities for entrepreneurs. Successful new businesses are usually created to meet a specific need in the society.



Age:

The baby boomers are aging. In the 80s, the baby boomers created a bulge in the population in the age category of 35 to 44. In the 90s, the baby boomers will be 45 to 54 years old.

Professional Piracy

By Juan J Miret



The invasion of pirates is something usual, daily; and more and more lamentably acceptable. We can see many “financial expert” with a severe lack of comprehension in taxes and general accounting. "Beauty specialists" self proclaimed as Dermatologists. Multiple immigration legal advisers who hardly pains understand the Constitution.



In short, the list is perpetual; and it applies to each labor field.



Specifically, I would like to mention the… Continue

Opinion: Hispanics Today Can Shop at Two Political Stores

When I started to vote back in the 1960s I remember vividly that there was only one political party that dominated the political scene in Texas — the Democrat Party. Republican candidates were as scarce as hen’s teeth. Though Hispanics, and black, suffered discrimination under the rule of the Democrats for almost 100 years, there was virtually nothing Hispanics and blacks could do about it. To add injury to insult, you had to pay a Poll Tax to vote. When a Hispanic or black voted, there really… Continue

Top N.Y. Schools Have a Dip in Blacks and Hispanics

The three elite specialized high schools in NY, have seen the percentage of black and Hispanics joining them declined even when more than 10 years ago the city created a special institute to prepare black and Hispanic students for the mind-bendingly difficult test that determines who gets into New York’s three most elite high schools.



The drop at Stuyvesant High School, the Bronx High School of Science and Brooklyn Technical High School mirrors a trend recently reported at three of… Continue

First day of school: Tears to Learn By

By now, most parents who have school-age or college-age kids probably have them enrolled and tucked away in classrooms. For some kids, as well as parents, that first day in school can be a horrifying experience. Yet, for others, it's pleasant and exciting.



Most of us can remember our first day in school. I'll never forget mine. I cried my lungs out as Mom (bless her heart) tried everything possible to make my first day a pleasant one. I was especially frightened of Sister Benigna, my… Continue

Hispanic Stereotypes -how they affect us at work? (part I)

By Roger Knight



Angélica González, a second-generation immigrant, has been working as a paralegal for a well-known law firm in Los Angeles.

She worked diligently to learn the ropes at her new position, and soon settled into the office routine. Only a few weeks into her tenure, however, she found herself facing negative Hispanic… Continue

An HIV prevention program emphasizing both abstinence and condom use may help decrease risky sexual behavior among Latino adolescents, according to a report in the August issue of the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.



HIV and AIDS disproportionately affect Latino youth; the incidence of AIDS was more than three times higher among Latinos than non-Hispanic white teens and adults in 2001, according to background information in the… Continue
