Community : 2007 SHPE Annual Picnic (August 25)
Posted by admin on 2007/8/25 20:10:00 (1644 reads)

  

On Saturday, August 25, the Southwest Ohio Chapter of SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers) held its 2nd Annual Picnic, which was a total success.

Members, families, and friends had an opportunity to come together and get to know each other. Children enjoyed breaking up a Piñata full of sweets and candies, and for adults we had a Domino Tournament. Congratulations to Miguel and Pedro - the winners of the tournament, and Lanny and Edwin who took the 2nd place.

We also had visitors from SHPE Student chapters from UD and OSU.

Nivia Colon-Diaz received a special Certification of Appreciation for her work on the 2006/2007 Board. 

  

More pictures from the SHPE picnic are in Dayton section of our Photo Gallery.

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 : Tiffany Wilson & Greg Palmer win Cincinnati Salsa Competition
Posted by admin on 2007/8/18 14:50:00 (2838 reads)



The 2007 Social Street Salsa Competition organized by Cincinnati Dancesport on Friday, August 17th, was a great succes, with competitors coming from as far as Columbus and Lexington. The 2006 champion, Tiffany Wilson, was successful in defending her title, this time supported by Greg Palmer. Her partner from last year, Blas Ortiz, who lives now in Chicago, couldn't make it for the competition.

 

What not many people know is that Tiffany learned about Blas not being able to come only two days before the competition, on Wednesday. Greg was originally going to compete together with Michelle Alapizco-Beach, Tiffany's friend. When Michelle learned that Blas won't be able to come, she decided that it's more important that Tiffany as  the defending champion has a partner than her own participation in the competition, so she asked Greg to compete with Tiffany and gave up her dream to participate in the competition. 

We can only applaud Michelle for her show of friendship and sportsmanship!!!! 

2nd place went to Sasha and Ed, and 3rd to Maybeliz and Israel! Congratulations to the winners, and to all participants, who had to qualify first for the competition and then worked hard preparing for it.  

Needless to say, we are very proud of Tiffany's success, since it was at our Havana Nights on Wednesdays where she started to dance Salsa by taking our free dance classes.

Community : Protests against WLW new commercials
Posted by admin on 2007/8/15 10:30:00 (1470 reads)

 

Several Cincinnati organizations that signed a request to WLW 700 Radio Station for an immidiate removal of the "Big Juan" ads (to see the press release click here), finding it insensitive and offending to the Latino/Hispanic community, are uniting again. It is caused by recent on-air advertisement which is transcribed below:

{Male announcer}
“Illegal Aliens, they are here and they don’t speak English which makes talking to an illegal alien difficult.” So here are a few useful phrases next time you converse with an illegal alien:
{Woman speaking Spanish}
{Male announcer translating} If anyone asks, tell them you are an exchange student from Sweden.
{Woman speaking Spanish}
{Male announcer translating} Be careful with those hedge clippers around the garden”

You can also read an article in Cincinnati Enquirer (click here...)

According to LULAC’s Jason Riveiro,” WLW General Manager Chuck Fredrick met with Hispanic leaders last May and committed to cleaning up the stations actions in order to prevent future offensive material. Mr. Fredrick also claimed that the station would make a change in policy and that he would have the final say in all advertising/marketing campaigns. Unfortunately, Mr. Fredrick has already failed on his commitment. The local community is outraged that the station is deliberately demeaning them in an effort to increase ratings and profit at the station.” LULAC and several other organizations such as:

Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA, Inc.
American Jewish Committee
Council on Arab and Islamic Relations (CAIR)
NAACP of Hamilton/Fairfield/West Chester/Lebanon
United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 1099


are demanding that Mr. Fredrick be removed from his position and that the demeaning advertisements stop. They also want to have a community advisory board appointed in order to work with the station’s management to prevent future misconduct by the station.

LULAC is calling for a picketing protests against the “Speaking to An Illegal Alien” ads on Tuesday, August 21, from 4 - 6PM at  700 WLW Offices (CHASE BUILDING) at 8044 Montgomery Road, Suite 650, Cincinnati, Ohio 45236 (ON THE SIDEWALK ENTRANCE TO THE BUILDING).

Community : Grupo Fuego releases its 2nd Album
Posted by admin on 2007/8/15 6:40:00 (1561 reads)

 

 After the success of their debut album, which elevated the band to international status, our friends from Grupo Fuego came back with their sophomore effort titled: “The Element”. The album's concept describes Grupo Fuego’s maturity, inspiration, energy, and creative force, also qualities of “Fire” as one of the four elements. This musical production sets new heights for Grupo Fuego due to its musical variety, balance, richer melodies, and energetic material from start to end. “The Element” was again produced by 3 time Grammy winner, Freddy Mendez, who already knows and understands Grupo Fuego’s chemistry, delivering a more powerful sound. It was also an honor for Grupo Fuego to have a special participation from Humberto Ramirez, great musician and music arranger from Puerto Rico, in the salsa version of the song “Sueño”. On this musical production, Grupo Fuego continues the journey of pleasing the dancer as well as the listener by delivering fire transformed into music and movement.
