After suffering through too many inauthentic portrayals of both Latinas and the Magic City on screen, I decided to do something about it. Because I'll be DAMNED if another feisty Cuban girl in the 305 is growing up resenting her heritage, too.
Billions in "Corporate Operation" expenses are being dumped annually into the state utilities to make "Local Service" look unprofitable. It would app...
The Internet is a behemoth, and it's growing every day. So how is a child to make sense of it all? How can she find what she needs as she writes, say, a school report on the solar system? Dr. Eleni Mitsakaki is trying to help.
In everyday communications, we prefer that someone tell us the truth. But why has it become so difficult in the digital age?
Adults who lived through the Cultural Revolution are only too aware of the mercurial horror of past Communist rule. A high school student told me that his father urged him to study in America because of the restrictions on freedom.
If there was one virtue that China projected, it was an economy that could handle like a BMW, and go from 0 to 7.5 percent growth in 3 months.
Sargent's portraiture of London society was addressed to a large yet very selected public. We have already said that Social Media is a very broad universe and that every network has a different target.
The Internet is undoubtedly an invaluable link between people separated by distance. But this link must be built on a stronger foundation of intimacy and familiarity and a balance of online and offline interactions will pave the way to better relationships in the world.
When I attended elementary, middle and high school, things were different. There was no real anonymity. I knew which classmates wanted to humiliate me. I sat next to them in class. They would sign their actual names on their mean notes to me in between periods.

We received a copy of this letter, below, on the day the FCC rejected our Petition for Investigation against AT&T.
Teens have a secret life. Much as it may be hard to digest for parents, a trot down memory lane into one's own teenage will prove that there are some circles in the teenager's life that exclude parents.
So, just on the surface, when the most hated companies in America all work together to sue the FCC, we should at least know something just ain't right, and that's putting it mildly.
Claiming there is no price to pay for speaking up against inequality is akin to colorblindness. It may be well intentioned, but it is a dangerous lie. When a kid says that they "don't see race" they may have the best of intentions.
All blind people know the frustration that we routinely experience in encountering inaccessible electronic and information technology, especially websites, apps, and other internet-based services. At best, these barriers are merely annoying -- at worst they can lead to unemployment.
Tripling mobile Internet access over the next 15 years could make the developing world $22 trillion richer. And such improvement in the lives and earning potential of poor people could indirectly help with the other challenges; more prosperous people tend to be healthier, better fed and better educated.
