This is by far the best time for people to finally become homeowners. No more dealing with landlords, throwing money away in rent, and waiting days for things to get fixed.
Home prices are at an all time low and so are interest rates. There are so many great deals out there that it is hard to decide which will be the best investment unlike years past when supply and demand was so low that people had to settle for any house they could get their hands on. Pre-Bank foreclosures and REOs… Continue

It is easy to say that actor Raul Julia would easily belong on the Mount Rushmore of Latino actors on just his body of work alone. Although we lost this fine man on October 24, 1994 at age 54 his work continues to inspire.
One such gem is “Romero” (1989/dvd 2009) directed by John Duigan about the life of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, who made the ultimate sacrifice in a passionate stand against social injustice and oppression in… Continue

Organization is the key to success, if you don’t think so exam the Mafia. A well organized crime unit that will be with us until the end of time. Have you ever watched Band of Brother or for more fun Ocean’s Eleven? What do they all have in common? Organization! How did Mosses free the slaves in Egypt? Again Organization. So why aren’t Latinos? so well organized?
How organized are we and what will it take to make it possible. Thank GOD for the United States military they seem to teach what… Continue

I've been unemployed for almost a year now. I've done my best to enjoy the time that I had off. I was able to finish school (MBA) without the stress of work. I've also taken the opportunity to travel and spend time with friends. I took snowboarding lessons. I helped my mother decorate the house for Christmas, New Years and Easter. I've even had the time to I've worked on projects around the house and helped my unemployed friends with their projects. I've had time to watch my nieces and nephews… Continue

At 46, I know I am old, but anyway. It’s funny to say back in the 70’s & 80’s and people are like wow I was not even born. I remember those days growing up in NYC; it was not too bad I never experience racism and prejudice until I moved to City Line, near Queens Ozone Park. Now I was no longer a Puerto Rican I was a spic, someone told me it means Spanish Person in Charge; guess they were right. LOL. Time passed and things changed we took over. HAHA. But as I got older and married I decided… Continue

We are a small start up trying to make a difference and your support would be greatly appreciated:
We are introducing a better search engine/directory that will only list Latino owned businesses. The site provides a searchable local directory and a search query. We went back to the basic using the alphabet and some latest web technology. Latino businesses can be found quickly provided the business is registered. Registration is not free, but extremely affordable. For example if you don’t… Continue

Things just got more interesting and dangerous in Honduras.
Ousted President Manuel Zelaya has sneeked back into the country of Honduras. He is staying in the Brazilian Embassy. If you don't remember, he was removed by the Military in June after trying to pass an unconsititional amendment to the Honduran Constitution. He was facing presidential term limits and, following in the footsteps of his political ally, Hugo Chavez, he tried to amend the constitution.
The Congress said "no" but… Continue

Rep Your Favorite Latino/a Book for Hispanic Heritage Month
As an author, I thought of one way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. We can celebrate our books written by our own and win a book in the process. I borrowed the idea from Darcy Pattison doing Random Acts of Publicity Week and as they say, “Why reinvent the wheel.” I thought her idea and her tips were perfect to celebrate our books for this month. Please read on and join all the fun!!!

The current economic crisis is resulting in more Latinos going back to school. Community colleges around the country are reporting rising admission rates. Unemployment is finding more Latinos studying in their down time because they are returning to the college campuses. As a result Latino student loans are increasing and Latino debt is rising. Education is always a good debt to have as it is an investment in ones future.
Day laborers are the hardest hit in today's economy, with… Continue

Many teaching opportunities are cropping up for Latinos in unexpected places like, Arkansas, North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Oregon. Growth of Hispanics in those states goes back to seeds planted two decades before. The demand for labor in the 90's caused many companies needing entry level workers to look at immigrant and migrant workers. These jobs created opportunities for many to settle and raise their children rather than traveling or following crops.
Some places where large… Continue

"How in the heck am I going to have faith in a faithless society?"
I found myself asking this question recently as I realized that the downturn of global economy has finally found me. I pondered the question over and over out loud as though others were listening to me. I looked around and there was no one.
Eventually, I came to an answer. "Who do we have faith in?" Yep, my answer was a question. For some of us it is God or another spiritual being that we cannot see. Others it is their… Continue

I've been keeping busy writing my books, but I found time to get into some real trouble with an online Speed Spanish course. I thought I could learn a little and have some fun. I thought it would be a piece of cake. Well, it was--yellowcake (nuclear waste). This instructor was serious! Somehow, when I read Speed Spanish, my brain translated it to Party Spanish. Not!
What to do? What to do? Well, I did get through the course, and pulled an A+, but my brain deletes languages fifteen… Continue
