It was COLD outside!!!! But inside we had another great HOT Salsa night @ Mad Frog, with people enjoying the awesome dance floor and Non-Smoking room! Pictures from this week's Salsa with Tropicoso @ Cincinnati's hottest Latino spot - "The Mad Frog", are on the Web in the Cincinnati section of our Photo Gallery (click here).

Each Monday, Mad Frog has its basement open - with the best in Reggaeton and Hip-hop. It's like having two clubs in one: live Salsa/Merenge upstairs with Tropicoso, and Reggaeton and Hip-hop downstairs!

The week of Feb. 17th, LULAC councils throughout the United States celebrate the founding of LULAC.

78 years ago, the founders of the League of United Latin American Citizens, better known as LULAC, joined together to establish an organization that would become the largest, oldest and most successful Hispanic civil rights and service organization in the United States.

Since its inception on February 17, 1929 in Corpus Christi, Texas, LULAC has championed the cause of Hispanic Americans in education, employment, economic development and civil rights and has developed a comprehensive set of nationwide programs fostering educational attainment, job training, housing, scholarships, citizenship, and voter registration.

Members of the local chapter of LULAC, as well as friends of LULAC, will celebrate  the 78th Anniversary on Wed. Feb. 14th at 6PM at Havana Martini Club.

And since it's also a Valentine's Day, after 8 PM we'll celebrate it with DJ Rudy and Latin music! So bring your Sweetheart with you!!!

Bush Proposes Broadening the No Child Left Behind Act

The New York Times

WASHINGTON, D.C. —The Bush administration called on Wednesday for an array of changes to the president’s signature education law. The proposals would give local school officials new powers to override both teachers’ contracts and state limits on charter schools in the case of persistently failing schools.

The proposals are part of the administration’s blueprint for revising the No Child Left Behind Act, which Congress is scheduled to renew this year. Margaret Spellings, the education secretary, said the goal was to provide students in failing schools with other options and “to make sure we have our best personnel in the neediest places.” (Read More)

 When Edna Morales walked into Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center for the first time, she felt very intimidated. As a Hispanic mother of a teen-aged son in need of a liver transplant, she remembers being impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the building, but she says, “I compare it to the experience of a little child going to preschool on the first day. You feel so little in a huge place.” Many Hispanic patients and families hail from Central America, where hospitals are only about one third as large as US hospitals, and many do not speak English as their primary language.

Improving Access to Care

The Hispanic community has much in common with other area populations when it comes to accessing care. Many have no insurance or they lack transportation. They are tight-knit, so word travels fast if service is good or poor. Some do not have US citizenship, although their children do if they were born here.

Cincinnati Children’s is committed to improving the health of all children regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical or mental handicaps. Mindy McDulin, a financial counseling supervisor in Patient Billing, says, “It has always been and continues to be Cincinnati Children’s policy to provide medically necessary hospital services for all children in our primary service area, regardless of the ability to pay. If you come here, you will get treatment. Our job is to figure out how that treatment will be paid for.”

In addition to delivering the best possible care to our families, we also comply with the HIPAA privacy law, created to secure and protect the confidentiality of patients.

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra presents the CSO Backstage Workshop Series, a new educational initiative, to expose students to and foster interest in career opportunities in classical music. “

The four-workshop series is designed for students grades 7-12 and their parents and is hosted by the CSO free of charge. Each workshop is held at Music Hall on a Saturday and culminates with complimentary tickets to a CSO concert. “Parents are a key part of the equation,” said Cushing-Reid. “We have found that if parents have an understanding of what is involved, what resources are available and are part of the process, it has a tremendous impact.”

One of the goals of CSO Backstage workshops is to recruit more African-American and Latino students to ensure that all local students have access to learning more about career options in the classical music world. 

 “We want to open doors and create opportunities,” said Kathy Jorgensen-Finley, CSO manager for diversity and community engagement. “Music is a universal language and we want to expose career options in classical music to everyone. The workshop setting lends itself to dialogue and a real one-on-one chance to get more information.”

The next session is on Saturday, January 27, 5 p.m.
