Eduardo Cunha: Ciao, Darling!

Diego Iraheta | May 5, 2016 | World
Cunha's removal from the Lower House has both legal and moral implications. After all, the most important court in the country has finally imposed the first and foremost defeat of one of the icons of Brazil's current ethical and political disaster.

It Lies Below The Land of the Remembered

Alexandra Rosas | May 5, 2016 | Latino Voices
Do not mess with the radio dial when a song comes on that I'm contemplating for my funeral. I need to hear it for the full 3 minutes and 32 seconds before I decide if I want it or not. My three children know this. If they reach over...

After 15 Internships, I Can Finally Be Hired For Wages

Cindy Nava | May 3, 2016 | Latino Voices
President Barrack Obama will always hold a special place in the hearts of DREAMers. His leadership and courage to enact DACA in the face of all the derision and political pressures he received from Congress, is beyond commendable.

A Day at the Best Restaurant in the World

Paula Escobar Chavarría | May 4, 2016 | Latino Voices
First will be champagne and a strange dish. It's a corrugated paper lamp in the shape of a sphere, surrounded by a black ribbon, and anchored to a piece of wood that looks like a sculpture. The waiters, dressed in elegant black, seem to be following a great choreography, in...

When Robots Are an Instrument of Male Desire

The Establishment | May 3, 2016 | Women
The popularity of feminine-gendered AI makes sense in a world where women still aren't seen as fully human. But these machines also reflect the rise of the service economy, which relies on emotional labor that's performed by women, with a "customer is always right" ethos imposed upon the whole affair.

Torture In Iraq Cannot Go Unpunished

Investigations into human rights violations should not be carried out in military courts; they should be investigated in civilian courts.

We take another look at the 2016 election and explore the Latino identity of Ted Cruz, why there's a generation gap with Latinos and report on Hillary Clinton's relationship with a coup in Honduras.

It's Time for Soda's Superstar Songsters to Change Their Tune

Laurie David | May 2, 2016 | Entertainment
I don't believe Selena Gomez or Andra Day would intentionally harm a single child, and yet their association with Coke will inevitably set millions of children on a path to poor health. We can't go on letting these stars use their cachet to hook our kids.

Is Racism to Blame for the Lack of Latinos in Media?

Geraldine Estevez | May 2, 2016 | Latino Voices

Texas and 25 other states filed a lawsuit to block President Obama's November 2014 executive action to help keep immigrant families together. The DAPA and expanded DACA initiatives would help parents remain in the U.S. temporarily to work, further their education, and support their families.

You Serve Your Time, Earn Your Freedom, Then the Job Market Shuts the Door in Your Face

Jason Hernandez | April 29, 2016 | Politics
I'd heard that it's hard for those who have served time to find work, but I was confident because I thought I had the skills I needed to get my life back on track and become a productive member of my community. I had no idea that the job market is barricaded against people like me.
