News = Noticias


Latinos are mostly interested in immigration and get what they need while watching the news on Univision and Telemundo, the two Spanish-language broadcast networks which inform nearly 57 million US Hispanics.

As a crossover journalist, who worked as a news executive for both media giants as well as in general market English-language media, the comparison between the two formats offers parallel worlds with different viewpoints.

Living Longer


There are basic rules to help us live longer from my point of view.

Be Inquisitive:
Trying to learn something new every day can be problem-solving: digging into a book, scientific research or news articles or asking questions and actually listening to the answers requires cognitive muscles.

Eat Plants and Vegetables:
Replacing meats with fruits and vegetables can go a long way toward slashing calories in a more satisfying way to stay alive longer.

Keep A Positive Attitude:

Eating Cable?


In Spanish, we have a saying "Comerse Un Cable" and for those who read the language of romance, here's a link:

It means eating cable, or having problems and experiencing economic difficulties. The term is appropriate when referring to the cable industry, which is apparently eating cable.

Kentucky Derby


As a young boy, I have fond memories of visiting the racetrack with my late dad Antonio and his youngest brother and my Godfather, Osvaldo. These two giants were men who I looked up to in more ways that one. They were also sports fans and racing aficionados.

GOP Replacement Bill


TRUMPCARE Premiums will be higher for older Americans. Under Obamacare, insurers were able to charge a 64-year-old three times more for a policy than a 21-year-old. The AHCA will allow insurers to charge the older population five times more than younger people. States will be able to obtain waivers to charge even more than five times the amount.

American Healthscare


It's beginning to look like the USA will have a long hot wait while more American voters begin exercising their political muscles. The US House of Representatives has approved a new plan, which government officials at CBO have yet to vet.

This has a long way to go before it becomes law, but in the coming months, once it is reviewed by The Congressional budget office and tweaked by members of The US Senate, it can then become the law of the land to replace the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

War and the Death of News


With his long-awaited book expected to be released next month, WAR AND THE DEATH OF NEWS Author Martin Bell, who is my journalism brother from a different mother kindly sent me a preview copy.

Martin Bell served in the colonial army, and as a BBC war correspondent was embedded with British forces, participated in missions with the American military, crossed the Suez Canal with the Israelis and covered the civil war in El Salvador with yours truly serving as his producer among his extensive and impressive list of credits. If that is not enough, Martin also served as a member of Parliament and as a United Nations ambassador and served as a key reference before I was hired to run the New York TV Bureau for AP.

Cancer Detection Bra


An 18-year-old from Mexico has invented of a bra that can help in the early detection of breast cancer. The bra, known as EVA, was created for women with genetic predisposition to cancer.

An 18-year-old student from Mexico has won the top prize at the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) for his invention of a bra that can help in the early detection of breast cancer. "The bra, otherwise known as EVA, was developed with three friends through his company Higia Technologies, and was created primarily for women with genetic predisposition to cancer."

The Bureau Investigates


The Federal Bureau of Investigation is a domestic intelligence and security service, which serves as the nation's prime federal law enforcement agency.

Regardless of what we've heard from Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the past, The FBI walks softly and carries the US Constitution as the way to proceed. The FBI Director entered the line of fire on Capitol Hill and fired back on Russia, and the Clinton probes, but said little about the continuing investigation into The White House Russia ties and alleged lies.

Will Objective Journalism Return?



In this era when newspapers and television are overrun with people expressing opinions instead of news, forgive me for being nostalgic about the good old days when I grew up in print journalism.

We were told that every story had more than one side and our job was to get all sides into our story. That was defined by the editors and, later, in tv, by producers.
