Bruno Figueroa The author is Mexico’s ambassador to Korea. Mexico and Korea have built a robust friendship for the future over the past sixty years. Formal relations were established in 1962, but the ties between our peoples go back more than a hundred years to the first Korean migration to Mexico in 1905. Furthermore, in 2022, we honored and remembered those forgotten soldiers of Mexican origin who bravely fought in the Korean War. The relationship between the two countries has grown stronger, reflecting the maturity of our strategic partnership built in over the past six decades. The bilateral economic relation is the pillar of our partnership, as seen in the trade volume that surpassed $20 billion in 2021. In only three years, Korea has become Mexico’s third largest trade partner and one of our main foreign investors. Both governments restarted negotiations in March toward a free trade agreement. The current relationship goes beyond the realm of economics, as it is being … [Read more...] about Welcome to mariachi, the soul of Mexico!

SANIBEL, Fla. — Nightfall was near and three men in the rescue crew were hustling back to their boat when Lisa Stasi, her voice strained with worry and exhaustion, flagged them down from her balcony on Sanibel Island, Fla. Hurricane Ian had turned her neighborhood into a disorienting landscape of wreckage. “Can we go?” she called out. “What do we have to do?” “Pack a bag,” said Bryan Stern, the crew’s leader, from her sodden driveway. Turning inside her home, Ms. Stasi yelled at her husband: “Beaver, we’re going!” James Judge, the rescue crew’s boat captain, looked up at the dying sunlight. They would have to hurry; the island would soon be pitch black. So would the bay they had to traverse to reach the mainland. They would risk crashing into an overturned vessel or other unseen storm debris in the dark water. For three days, Mr. Stern and his team had been making trips to Sanibel, North Captiva Island and St. James City, barrier island communities that dot the … [Read more...] about On Sanibel Island, a Search for Stranded Residents Slogs On

Nonagenarian Rangappa had a toothy grin all day after spending time with Rahul Gandhi and several Congress leaders who visited the Badanavalu Khadi Gram Udyog centre in Karnataka’s Nanjangud on October 2. Badanavalu, a quaint village where Mahatma Gandhi inspired men and women to take up weaving Khadi, has a spinning centre that was established in 1927 by Tagadur Ramachandra Rao, an ardent follower of the Mahatma. Located on a nine-acre campus with spinning wheels and units for weaving, paper-making, bleaching, and handloom, the Khadi centre played host to the Congress which camped at the premises for half-a-day as part of the Bharat Jodo Yatra. The centre also owes its glorious past to being the first such initiative that began operating with four Dalit women with an aim to uplift the community’s economic condition. Rangappa still vividly remembers watching Mahatama Gandhi use the spinning wheel when he visited the centre twice — once in 1927 and then in 1932. “I was this tall … [Read more...] about Cherished by Gandhi-ji, This Khadi Village’s Future Hangs by a Thread.

The reports of the Bhagavad Gita park sign being vandalised in Canada has added to the series of hate crimes that are emerging into the mainstream, especially against Indians. The High Commission of India in Ottawa has “condemned the hate crime at the Sri Bhagavad Gita Park in Brampton” and urged the police to take action against perpetrators. The Indian government had issued an advisory a couple of weeks ago asking its people, including students, to stay vigilant due to “sharp increase” in hate crimes and “anti-India activities” in Canada. Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown, who had earlier condemned the incident, has now denied vandalism and termed the entire episode a confusion. His tweet was followed up by the Peel Police who claimed no evidence of vandalism, adding that the blank park sign that was installed was nothing but a temporary sign. Last month, the Leicester violence in eastern England made headlines after an unidentified mob vandalised a Hindu temple and snatched the … [Read more...] about Bhagavad Gita Park Sign ‘Vandalised’: Recent Hate Crimes Against Indians in Canada | A Refresher

Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 3 Throughout her century-long life, Ruth Gottstein broke new ground as an activist and publisher in the fields of domestic violence, women’s health, civil rights, gay rights and the La Raza movement as well as being an avid outdoorswoman. So in her final days, when she and her son Adam Gottstein were planning the disposition of her body, it was fitting that they decided she would be in the vanguard there as well, choosing to have her earthly remains turned into literal earth.
