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

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...)

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.

Today I had a pleasure to meet a young talented Latino who recently moved to Cincinnati.

The 23-year-old conductor Tito Muñoz is currently assistant conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, appointed in May 2006 by music director Paavo Järvi. A native of New York City, he began his musical training at age 13 in the Juilliard School's Music Advancement Program. A scholarship recipient, he studied violin and composition at the Manhattan School of Music preparatory division, winning the Richard Kimball Composition Award. As a violinist he also attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, the Kinhaven and Apple Hill summer festivals, was a teacher at New Jersey's Elizabeth Morrow String Festival, and made numerous appearances with the leading orchestras of New York and New Jersey. He continued his violin studies with Daniel Phillips at the Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College. Formerly an assistant conductor of the ISO Symphonic Band and apprentice conductor of the New York Youth Symphony, Mr. Muñoz was a faculty member of the French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts, working with the symphony orchestra, concert band, and chamber music program and conducting fully staged Broadway musical productions. He has conducted the Queens College Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra on several occasions and has collaborated with such artists as Charles Neidich, Daniel Phillips, Marcy Rosen and Gil Shaham as well as cross-over vocal group Amici Forever. During the summers of 2004-2006 Mr. Muñoz was a student at the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen where he studied with David Zinman and Murry Sidlin and participated in masterclasses with Leonard Slatkin, David Robertson, Robert Spano, Asher Fisch, George Manahan, and John Williams. Winner of the Aspen Music Festival's 2005 Robert J. Harth Conductor Prize and 2006 Aspen Conducting Prize, he will return to Aspen in 2007 as assistant conductor of the festival. A participant in the 2006 National Conducting Institute, he made his professional conducting debut with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. In August 2006 he made his Cleveland Orchestra debut at the Blossom Music Center. He will make his Cincinnati Symphony debut in February 2007.

We wish Tito all the best in Cincinnati and are happy to have him with us.

Dallas, Texas – October 26, 2006 – The National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) announced the development of a new research division during its 17th annual conference in Cincinnati, OH. Currently known as the premier Hispanic business association, the creation of this new research division will lead NSHMBA into a future as the premier source of research on Hispanics in the workplace and in higher education.

Chosen to drive NSHMBA’s new division is Dr. Donna Maria Blancero. Dr. Blancero holds a Ph.D. in Industrial Relations from Cornell University and is the former Chair of the Board of Directors for the National Society of Hispanic MBAs. Dr. Blancero is also a Fellow of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. She is nationally recognized for her expertise in Latinos in Corporate America, as well as for her work in talent acquisition and retention, mentoring, developmental networks, work/family balance, gender differences, discrimination, fair treatment and psychological contracts.

With her specific experience, Dr. Blancero will develop the National Society of Hispanic MBA’s new research division as a value added service to current and future NSHMBA stakeholders. These include organization members, leaders, corporate sponsors, universities, as well as academic researchers and the community at large. According to NSHMBA CEO Lourdes Hassler and Chairman Manuel Fernandez, NSHMBA’s new division will use its research to create relevant educational programming for students and professionals, as well as statistical data for use by individuals, academia and corporate America.

The Business Journal of Hispanic Research, to be launched by NSHMBA’s new division in 2007, will include content from both academics and business practitioners with the goal of relaying both cutting-edge business theory and business best practices. Serving as publisher for the journal is Lourdes M. Hassler, NSHMBA CEO. Associate editors for the journal include Dr. Dianna L. Stone, Professor at the University of Texas, San Antonio; Dr. Miguel A.
