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!

Chiquita and MidwestLatino presented the sixth annual Latin American Culture Fest at the Cincinnati Museum Center, with media sponsors Latinos Magazine and Radio La Ley 1320.

Latin American Culture Fest kicked off the 2006-2007 Passport to the World series that allows visitors to see, hear, touch and explore other cultures without leaving Cincinnati. Each Passport celebration highlights one cultural heritage with a variety of displays, activities and performances. The events provide a forum where visitors can interact with and learn about community members of different cultures.

The Rotunda came alive with Hispanic music, dance, arts, crafts, and more representing the cultures of Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Cuba and Panama. Latin American vendors were selling jewelry, clothing, and many other items related to Hispanic culture. Musical and dance performances run the gamut from the traditional to the contemporary. And children and adults could learn about the many Latin American cultures first-hand through educational and interactive activities.

Community : US Elections 2006 in Ohio

Democrats Sharrod Brown and Ted Strickland won their races to become respectively new US Senator and Ohio Governor!

Resized Image Resized Image

Cincinnati's Republican Congressman Steve Chabot, who unfortunately was very anti-immigration in his election commercials, prevailed over Democratic challenger John Cranley. His win, however, won't keep the Democrats from taking over the House. As a result of the 2006 elections Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi will become House Speaker, the first woman to do so.

LULAC National President Rosa Rosales said after the Democratic win in the 2006 elections: “We are very excited to see that we may now have an opportunity to pass meaningful comprehensive immigration reform, address negotiating Medicare Part D drug prices and raise the minimum wage among other key issues for Hispanics.”

What is your opinion? What impact will the 2006 Elections results have on the Latino community? To discuss it, please visit our discussion board (click here...)

The GE Cincinnati Hispanic Forum hub recently received honorable accolades at the 6th annual Hispanic Forum Leadership Summit (Oct. 9-11) by CEO Jeff Immelt for their efforts linked to attracting, developing and retaining talent for GE.

The Cincinnati hub received two awards for the best attract and develop/retain teams recognizing the following achievements:

Best Attract Team

* Completed 17 recruiting events
* Increased Forum participation by more than 40%
* Established 8 partnerships with various student and professional organizations

Best Develop/Retain Team (Roger Lopez/Jennifer Montanez)

* Completed more than 35 professional development and networking leadership events

The awards are given each year by the national HF leadership and Jeff to recognize the top regional hubs considered best in class in 4 categories: Attract, Retain/Develop, Community Involvement and Communications. The results are based on quarterly metrics involving more than 20 hubs in the U.S. and comprise about 1,200 employees. In 2004, Cincinnati received the best national hub overall and the best retain hub in 2005.

Our congratulations to the winners!!!

MidwestLatino : MidwestLatino enters its 3rd Year of serving the Latino Community
Posted by admin on 2006/11/3 8:20:00 (3031 reads)

Resized Image

Wow! It's been already two years since MidwestLatino was created in Oct. 2004. Time definitely flies when we're having fun, and these two years passed with a speed of light!

From the start, the three focus areas of MidwestLatino were defined as:

- building bridges between cultures
- making a difference in the community, and
- celebrating diversity

The results exceeded by far our wildest dreams and expectations. We've made hundreds of friends across Midwest, received several awards, and were invited to join several boards of different organizations, but most of all, were able to promote multi-cultural awareness, understanding, respect and harmony among different ethnic and nationality groups in the Midwest.

Our most sincere thanks to our friends, partners, collaborators, and supporters. We couldn't be where we are now without your help, trust, and support.
