As most of you know, Digital TV is coming to the USA, and it's time to say "goodbye" to analog TV on February 17th, 2009. If youTV is still old-style analog TV, you'll need a convertor box, or a new Digital TV.

You can find more information at 

Most of the TV stations are alrady transmitting in digital, and some of them in High Definition TV  (read more about HDTV)

MidwestLatino has been always on the forefront of new developments and always investing in new technologies, so as of now we'll be publishing all our new videos on YouTube in HD format

As first, we have a Birthday dance of Ismail in Havana Martini Club last week.

To see this video in HD on YouTube, please click here.

Of course, you'll need a fast Interned connection (cable or DSL) and a hi-res monitor. Normally, YouTube videos are presented in a low resolution. But they will have a little link below the video's right bottom corner, showing if a given video can be viewed in high-resolution. 


We have also upgraded our photo technology, and as a result, pictures from our events look better than ever before, with more vibrant colors and higher resolution!

Enjoy it!

And Happy Birthday to Ismail!!!

Events : SHPE Christmas Party (Dec. 14, 2008)
Posted by admin on 2008/12/19 9:00:00 (1402 reads)


The Southwest Ohio Chapter of SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers) hosted on Sunday, Dec. 14th, its annual Christmas Party.

More pictures from the meeting are in the Dayton section of our Photo Gallery (click here...)

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.

The concept of Networking was the key basis for the organization. SHPE quickly established two student chapters to begin the network that would grow to encompass the nation as well as reach countries outside the United States. Today, SHPE enjoys a strong but independent network of professional and student chapters throughout the nation.

Events : Las Posadas in Cincinnati (Dec. 16th, 2008)
Posted by admin on 2008/12/16 22:30:00 (1475 reads)

Las Posadas (Spanish for "The Inns") is a eight-day celebration with origins in Mexico beginning December 16th and ending December 24th. It is a yearly tradition for many Catholic Mexicans and some other Latin Americans and symbolizes the trials which Mary and Joseph endured before finding a place to stay where Jesus could be born. It is a very important Christmas Tradition for the people of Latin America.

Latin American countries have continued to celebrate this holiday to this day, with very few changes to the tradition. In some places, the final location may be a church instead of a home. Individuals may actually play the various parts of Mary (Maria) and Joseph with the expectant mother riding a real donkey (burro), with attendants such as angels and shepherds acquired along the way. Or the pilgrims may carry images of the holy personages instead. At the end of the long journey, there will be Christmas carols (villancicos), children will break open pinatas by striking these colorful papier-mache objects with bats while blind-folded to obtain candy hidden inside, and there will be a feast.

Every home has a nativity scene and the hosts of the Posada act as the innkeepers. The neighborhood children and adults are the pilgrims (Peregrinos), who have to request lodging by singing a traditional song about the pilgrims. All the pilgrims carry small lit candles in their hands, and four people carry small statues of Joseph leading a donkey, on which Mary is riding. The head of the procession will have a candle inside a paper lamp shade.

The pilgrims will symbolically ask for lodging at three different houses, but only the third one will allow them in. That will be the house where the Posada will be held for that evening. Once the "innkeepers" let them in, the group of guests come into the home and kneel around the Nativity scene to pray (typically, the Rosary). This is followed by the singing of traditional Christmas songs and a party for the children, including a piñata.

Open in new window

This year, the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA , has organized for the very first time in Cincinnati Las Posadas, that took place in the Cincinnati Art Museum. We had our three Wise Men, piñata, and a lot of good food. Expect this to become an annual tradition.
