Business : MidwestLatino opens Resumes Section for Hispanics

Another "first" by MidwestLatino! In order to make it easier for MidwestLatino readers to find a qualifying job, we are opening a Resume Section, where our members will have an opportunity to post their resumes for FREE.

You'll have an option to keep your resumes private, i.e. the resume will be visible only to people who receive a “privacy code” from you, thus protecting you, for example, from a situation that you current employer would see that you’re thinking about a new career. Compare the two "Example" resumes to see the difference. The code for the private resume in this example is "007", but you'll be able to choose any one you want for your resume.

Please note: in order to avoid any abuses, you'll have to be a MidwestLatino member to take advantage of this service. If you're not a member, click here to register.

Resized Image

Learn the colorful, exhilarating Southern Spanish folk dance! The Sevillanas is performed at festive occasions such as the Feria de Sevilla, and is a popular social dance which has made its way into dance clubs in Spain in recent years. Now the Sevillanas are coming to Cincinnati!

There's been a change to the Sevillanas dance class in April! Thanks to your feedback, the organizers are turning the previously planned two classes into ONE 4-hour workshop on April 22 (Saturday). This also means the fee is now lower, at $60, since Diana, the teacher, does not have to come to Cincinnati twice.

April 22 (Sat) 2 pm - 6 pm (4 hours)

A fun class which includes learning the movement patterns and underlying structure of Sevillanas. These classes are suitable for beginners as well as people with experience who wish to get a refresher course. No previous experience necessary.

Click here for registration form. Questions call: 513.236.2026

Also, plan on keeping your Saturday evening free because we're working on taking the Sevillanas party later that evening to the Argentine Bean Tapas and Wine Bar. Why not try out what you just learned in a real, fun, social setting?? We're also talking to Diana, who's a phenomenal performer, to consider staying over that Saturday evening to put on a little show for us as part of the Sevillanas party. Stay tuned for updates.

For live Flamenco music and dancing, visit Argentine Bean on Saturdays, from 8-11 PM.

Community : Immigration Rally in Cincinnati (March 11)
Posted by admin on 2006/3/11 11:20:00 (1665 reads)

Resized Image

The stage is set for what could be one of the most controversial congressional debates in a decade: whether to legalize up to 11 million illegal migrants or compel them to leave the country. The debate, scheduled to begin this month, marks the most sweeping efforts to amend immigration law since 1996. That debate came last week to Cincinnati (March 9-12), and culminated with a Rally organized by Cincinnati Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform on March 11 at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral. With over 500 people attending the rally, it was a full success for the organizers.

The Peruvian sculptor Carlos Runcie Tanaka is having an exhibition of his art at the PHILIP M. MEYERS, JR. MEMORIAL GALLERY at Univ. of Cincinnati till March 17th (Info: 513-556-5132).

Carlos was born in Lima, Peru, of mixed Japanese and European ancestry. He began studying pottery at El Pingüino workshop in Lima in 1977. In 1979 he was invited by the Japanese master potter Tsukimore Masahiko to serve as his apprentice in Ogaya, and was subsequently a guest assistant to Shimaoka Tatsuzo in Mashiko. Returning to Peru in 1980, Tanaka was technical advisor for Cerámica Izcuchaca Pottery, and then studied in Florence, Italy, with a grant from the Organization of American States (OAS). Another OAS grant enabled him to study crafts design in Brazil. He has had solo exhibitions in Peru, Venezuela, Argentina, Paraguay, and at the Art Museum of the Americas in Washington, D.C.; participated in group shows in Peru, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, the United States and Italy; and represented Peru in a number of biennials in Spain, Venezuela, Italy and Cuba. Tanaka's work is in public and private collections in the Americas and Italy, and in the Museum of Modern Art in Milan.

Community : FBI Outreach to Latinos in Central Ohio
Posted by admin on 2006/3/8 1:40:00 (1625 reads)

Resized Image Resized Image

The Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs (OCHLA) will host a Meet The FBI Day on:

14 March 2006, 4 – 5:30 PM (based upon Q&A, etc.)
Room SOUTH A – Riffe Center 31st Floor
77 S. High Street (northwest corner of State & High)

Parking is available at City Center, the Statehouse garage, or the Riffe Center garage on Front Street.

Please RSVP to OCHLA at 614-466-8333 so they can choose an appropriate meeting room.

The purpose of this meeting is to introduce the FBI to local Latino community leaders and vice-versa, to start to form relationships, and to focus on putting together a town-hall type meeting for more community members sometime in May.

OCHLA is working on this because it is within our statutory mandates to promote relations between Latinos and government agencies, to ensure equal access for Latinos at all levels of government, and because our West Side Fire Community Task Force Report indicates a vital need to improve relationships between the Latino community and our law enforcement officials and other first-responders.

The FBI is working on this because it is interested in breaking up criminal activity in the areas of Human Trafficking, implementing Anti-Gang efforts, and enforcing federal Civil Rights law.

Take this all together, and the Latino community, the FBI, and OCHLA can form a stronger team to make our community safer, especially for our most vulnerable segment, our immigrant sisters & brothers. As I mentioned before, the FBI is not chartered with immigration law enforcement, so they are not interested in the immigration status of victims, just stopping those criminals who prey upon immigrants.
