As we clear away the Thanksgiving dishes, the holiday season in the U.S. begins in earnest. Over the next few weeks, the nation will indulge in what is essentially the biggest shopping spree of the year. Oh, yeah. We do manage to squeeze in some religious holidays as well.
Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus and Jews commemorate Hanukkah during this period. Another holiday at this time of year is Kwanzaa; a cultural celebration observed primarily in the African-American community… Continue

Dare To Live
By T. Pina
When life’s troubles got you down,
And the waters of your daily strife
Makes you feel like you’re going to drown,
Try and reach down inside of your soul
And pull out whatever you got left,
And just dare to live.
Life is so uncertain and tomorrow is not promised at all.
Some days you might find yourself on top of the highest mountain of life or… Continue

I wish each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving. Remember to give thanks to God for all the blessings He has given you throughout your life!

Have your ever thought of a threat as an opportunity? For example, just suppose that
you lost your job. On the surface this would appear
to be a threat. I could be a threat to your family's well being, e g,
the mortgage; food; gas, etc. etc. The reason that I said that it
could appear to be a threat is because there is an alternative way
to look at it.
Maybe you have been wanting to change jobs, but you have never
had the chance to explore that option… Continue

I've been living in Hawaii for the last 19 years and have spent Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years alone.So with this being said, please reach out to someone new in your area during the holidays.
I'm not saying a stranger but someone new to your circle, to your town/city, or to the USA!! I guarantee dinner will taste just a little better.
The Hawaii Hispanic News want to wish you and your family the best this holiday season!!

During the campaign, president-elect Obama promised to initiate legislation for comprehensive immigration reform in the first 100 days of his administration. Like most presidents, Mr. Obama will come into office with considerable political capital during the proverbial "honeymoon" period with congress and the media. However, the economy has already become Mr. Obama's primary public focus.
No sensible person would argue our faltering economy is not a vital issue. But if those of us… Continue

Picture this cartoon: An impeccably-groomed CEO emerges from his chauffeured limo to join the line outside the welfare office. In front of him stand others of his ilk, waiting impatiently to pick up a check.
With very little exaggeration, that was the scene in Washington this week as the chiefs of the Big Three U.S. automakers “arrived before Congress in corporate jets with tin cups in hand.” Is anyone surprised?
The federal government has already ponied up $700 billion to… Continue

Many have argued that Barack Obama is biracial, not black. Yet the label “African-American” is especially appropriate for our president-elect. Unlike most people of African descent in the United States, Mr. Obama can trace his roots directly to Africa through his Kenyan father. For most black Americans, that connection is lost in the ancestral slurry of slavery. That very fact raises another distinction between Mr. Obama and other African-Americans: He is not a descendant of… Continue

The new Bishop of Little Rock, Anthony B. Taylor, has taken a daring stance on the immigration issue. In his first pastoral letter released on November 5, Bishop Taylor declares that all humans have “the right to immigrate when circumstances so require.” In the Bishop’s 64-page letter, Taylor explains that immigration is an economic necessity. It provides labor in nations where it’s needed, like the United States, and alleviates suffering in poorer countries. He quotes the U.S. Declaration of… Continue

We encourage all exhibitors to post our job fair on your events calendar or your diversity recruiting page of your website. Several previous exhibitors including HSBC and the Food and Drug Administration have promoted their presence in the past, and we have seen that this has helped drive a significant amount of targeted candidates to their specific booths.
You can see how DFW Airport announced their presence here as an example. We recommend that you post links with titles to their… Continue

The Strength that Lies in Our Differences
Yes, we all have heard it…we need to increase diversity in the workplace. Perhaps an issue not discussed as much is “why”; why diversity is even important. Three reasons why are because diverse organizations can better serve its customers; diversity inspires creativity; and it prepares organizations for the future.
The Smithsonian Institution should be the ideal model of… Continue
