Hiring plans steady as business owners sour on U.S. economy

One in four plan to hire more employees – same as six months ago PITTSBURGH, PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ --  Small and mid-sized business owners are cautious about the next six months amid greater pessimism about the economy given the stock market volatility and presidential election rhetoric, according to the latest PNC Economic Outlook Survey findings.  The spring findings of PNC’s biannual telephone survey, which began in 2003, reveal that 43 percent are pessimistic about the U.S. economy, the most since 2012, and up from 33 percent in the fall. Meanwhile, 30 percent are pessimistic about their local economy, which is the highest since 2013.

Yet one in four (24 percent) plan to hire additional employees during the next six months, similar to the 26 percent last fall and 22 percent a year ago. The bright spot is that 43 percent of manufacturing firms plan to hire, which is up from 26 percent six months ago. PNC’s survey findings show a positive trend over the past five years among small and midsized business owners when it comes to making money. Nearly half (45 percent) expect profits to increase during the next six months while 41 percent expect the bottom line to remain the same. Only 12 percent expect a decrease, the lowest since 2006. In terms of sales, 51 percent expect an increase compared to 52 percent in the fall. “Business owners’ mood may have been impacted by the stock market volatility and presidential campaign

rhetoric since the start of the year,” said PNC’s Chief Economist Stuart Hoffman. “But their cautious optimism about sales, profits and hiring represents solid fundamentals for the economy. These findings are far from a warning sign of recession from small business owners.” Hoffman estimates the probability of a U.S. recession in 2016 is only about 20 percent. He added that the overall survey results reinforce the fundamentals are solid for the U.S. economy and supports PNC’s forecast for real GDP growth of 2.0 percent this year, slightly slower from the 2015 pace. Financing Needs Remain Limited Although expectations for business prospects are promising, loan and credit demand continue on a slow path upward. Eight out of 10 owners (83 percent) say they

will not pursue new loans or lines of credit in the next six months while 14 percent will. Asked if the prospect of rising interest rates would impact pursuit of a loan, 76 percent said it wouldn’t. Other key findings include: Presidential Matters: More than half (53 percent) said they were not satisfied the potential presidential candidates were addressing the key issues for business owners. Fewer Pay Raises on the Way: 34 percent expect to increase employees’ pay compared to 42 percent in the fall, which was the most since 2007. Shortage of Skilled Workers: Three in 10 say it is harder to find qualified employees compared to 6-12 months ago. The biggest hiring challenge is that candidates don’t have the technical skills specific to the business, i.e., computer applications, tools or machinery. Further Decline in Pricing Pressure: Nearly three in 10 (29 percent) plan to charge

Los planes de contratación de personal siguen firmes pero dueños de empresas están desencantados con la economía estadounidense Uno de cada cuatro planea contratar más empleados. PITTSBURGH, PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- Los dueños de pequeñas y medianas empresas en Estados Unidos continúan cautelosos en medio de mayor pesimismo sobre la economía, dada la volatilidad del mercado bursátil y la retórica de las elecciones presidenciales, según hallazgos de la última encuesta sobre perspectiva económica de PNC. Los resultados de la encuesta, que es realizada vía telefónica por PNC dos veces al año y que se llevó a cabo por primera vez en el 2003, revelan que el 43 por ciento de los encuestados son pesimistas sobre la economía estadounidense, la mayor cifra desde el 2012 y una subida con respecto al 33 por ciento en el pasado otoño. Mientras tanto, el 30 por ciento es pesimista sobre la economía local, la cifra más alta desde el 2013. Sin embargo, uno de cada cuatro (24 por ciento) planea contratar más empleados en los próximos seis meses, un número similar al 26 por ciento del otoño pasado y al 22 por ciento hace un año. Lo positivo es que el 43 por ciento de las fábricas planean contratar, una cifra muy superior al 26 por ciento hace seis meses. Los hallazgos de la encuesta de PNC muestran una tendencia positiva a lo largo de los últimos cinco años entre los dueños de pequeñas y medianas empresas en cuanto a las ganancias. Casi la mitad (45 por ciento) espera tener más ganancias durante los próximos seis meses mientras que el 41 por ciento espera que los resultados se mantengan. Sólo el 12 por ciento espera un descenso, la cifra más baja desde 2006. En términos de ventas, el 51 por ciento espera un aumento, frente al 52 por ciento el otoño pasado. “El ánimo de los dueños de empresas puede haber sido afectado por la volatilidad del mercado bursátil y la retórica de la campaña presidencial”, señaló el economista en jefe de PNC, Stuart Hoffman. “Pero su optimismo cauteloso sobre las ventas, las ganancias y la contratación laboral

representa bases sólidas para la economía. Estos hallazgos están muy lejos de ser una señal de recesión por parte de los dueños de pequeñas empresas”. Hoffman calcula que la probabilidad de una recesión en los Estados Unidos en el 2016 es sólo de aproximadamente 20 por ciento. Añadió que los resultados generales de la encuesta refuerzan la noción de que las bases de la economía estadounidense son sólidas, y apoyan el pronóstico de PNC de un crecimiento real del PIB del 2.0 por ciento este año, apenas por debajo del ritmo del 2015. Las necesidades de financiamiento siguen limitadas Aunque las expectativas de negocios son prometedoras, la demanda de préstamos y créditos sigue en una lenta tendencia ascendente. Ocho de cada 10 dueños (83 por ciento) dice que no tomará nuevos préstamos ni líneas de crédito en los próximos seis meses mientras que el 14 por ciento dice lo contrario. Al preguntarles si la posibilidad de una subida en las tasas de interés afectaría la búsqueda de préstamos, el 76 por ciento dijo que no. Otros hallazgos claves incluyen: Asuntos presidenciales: Más de la mitad (53 por ciento) dijo que no

estaba conforme con cómo los precandidatos presidenciales abordan temas claves para los dueños de empresas. Pronóstico para menos alzas de salarios: El 34 por ciento espera subir los salarios de sus empleados, frente al 42 por ciento en otoño, que fue la cifra más alta desde 2007. Falta de trabajadores calificados: Tres de cada 10 dueños dice que es más difícil encontrar trabajadores calificados en comparación con los últimos 12 meses. El mayor desafío a la hora de contratar personal es que los candidatos no tienen las habilidades técnicas específicas que necesita la empresa, es decir; dominio de aplicaciones informáticas, herramientas o maquinaria.

Mayor declive en la presión sobre los precios: Casi tres de cada 10 (29 por ciento) planea subir sus precios, a la par que en otoño (28 por ciento). En cuanto a los precios que cobran los proveedores, el 44 por ciento espera que suban, frente al 50 por ciento hace seis meses. 77 por ciento espera que los precios al consumidor suban este año, lo que en parte refleja la marcada caída de los precios de la energía. Impacto de los costos de la atención médica: Cuando se les preguntó por la Ley del Cuidado de Salud, el 78 por ciento dice que no tuvo ningún efecto en la contratación de sus empleados durante 2015 y un número similar (82 por ciento) no espera que tenga ningún impacto este año. La mayoría



higher prices, on par with (28 percent) in the fall. For prices charged by suppliers, 44 percent expect price hikes compared to 50 percent six months ago. Seventyseven percent expect consumer prices to rise this year, partly reflecting the sharp drop in energy prices. Healthcare Cost Impact: Asked about the Affordable Care Act, 78 percent say it had no effect on their 2015 hiring and a similar number (82 percent) don’t expect impact this year. Most (56 percent) said insurance premiums increased in 2015 – and nearly half said they went up 10 percent or more. Looking ahead to 2016, 40 percent expect costs to increase, down from 49 percent in the fall. Housing Prices Continue to Rise: Most (57 percent) expect prices to rise in their local market in the next 6-12 months, on par with 58 percent in the fall. Methodology The PNC Economic Outlook survey was conducted between January 21 to March

8, 2016, by telephone within the United States among 1,867 owners or senior decision-makers of small and mid-sized businesses with annual revenues of $100,000 to $250 million. The results given in this release are based on interviews with 502 businesses nationally, while the remaining interviews were conducted among businesses within the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania plus Washington, D.C. Sampling error for the national results is +/- 4.4 percent at the 95 percent confidence level. The survey was conducted by Artemis Strategy Group (www.ArtemisSG.com), a communications strategy research firm specializing in brand positioning and policy issues. The firm, headquartered in Washington D.C., provides communications research and consulting to a range of public and private sector clients.

(56 por ciento) dijo que las primas de seguro aumentaron en el 2015, y casi la mitad dijo que aumentaron un 10 por ciento o más. Con miras al 2016, el 40 por ciento espera que los costos suban, una cifra menor que el 49 por ciento en otoño. El precio de las viviendas continúa aumentando: La mayoría (57 por ciento) espera que los precios de las viviendas aumenten en su mercado local en los próximos 6-12 meses, a la par con el 58 por ciento en otoño Metodología La encuesta sobre perspectiva económica de PNC se realizó entre el 21 de enero y el 8 de marzo del 2016, por teléfono, en los Estados Unidos entre 1,867 dueños o personas a cargo de pequeñas y medianas empresas con ingresos anuales de $100,000 a $250 millones. Los resultados

presentados en este comunicado de prensa se basan en entrevistas con 502 empresas a nivel nacional, mientras que las entrevistas restantes se realizaron entre empresas dentro de los estados de Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Carolina del Norte, Ohio y Pennsylvania, además de Washington D.C. El error de muestreo para los resultados nacionales es +/- 4.4 por ciento a un nivel de confianza del 95 por ciento. La encuesta estuvo a cargo de Artemis Strategy Group (www. ArtemisSG.com), una firma de investigación de estrategias de comunicaciones especializada en el posicionamiento de marcas y en políticas. La firma, con sede en Washington D.C., ofrece servicios de investigación y asesoramiento sobre comunicaciones a diversos clientes del sector público y privado.

It’s Our Anniversary Es Nuestro Aniversario YEARS Te preguntas qué es el Mes What is Hispanic de l a Heren cia Hispana Heritage Month you ask

C

ada año, los estadounidenses conmemoran el Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre con la celebración de las historias, culturas y las contribuciones de los ciudadanos estadounidenses cuyos antepasados ​​vinieron de España, México, el Caribe y América Central y del Sur. La conmemoración comenzó en 1968 como la Semana de la Herencia Hispana, con el presidente Lyndon Johnson, y fue ampliada por el presidente Ronald Reagan en 1988 para cubrir un período de 30 días que comienza el 15 de septiembre y finaliza el 15 de octubre. La celebración se convirtió en ley el 17 de agosto de 1988, en la aprobación de la Ley Pública 100-402. Los Estados Unidos reconocen las contribuciones realizadas y la importante presencia de hispanos y latinoamericanos en los Estados Unidos y celebra su herencia y cultura. Los hispanos han tenido una influencia profunda y positiva en nuestro país a través de su fuerte compromiso con la familia, la fe, el trabajo duro, y el servicio. Han mejorado y formado nuestro carácter nacional con tradiciones centenarias que reflejan las costumbres multiétnicas y multiculturales de su comunidad. El Mes de la Herencia Hispana, cuyas raíces se remontan

a 1968, comienza cada año el 15 de septiembre, el aniversario de la independencia de cinco países latinoamericanos: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras y Nicaragua. México, Chile y Belice también celebran su independencia durante este período y el día de Cristóbal Colón (Día de la Raza), es el 12 de octubre. El término hispano o latino, se refiere a Puerto Rico, Sudamérica o Centroamérica, o de otra cultura u origen español, independientemente de la raza. En el formulario del Censo 2010, la población de origen español, hispano y/o latino podían identificarse como mexicano, mexicano-americano, chicano, puertorriqueño, cubano, u “otro origen hispano, latino o español”. Hoy en día, 55 millones de personas o el 17% de la población estadounidense son de origen hispano o latino. Esto representa un aumento significativo a partir del 2000, año en que se registró a la población hispana en 35.3 millones o el 13% de la población total de EU. Comparta durante este especial homenaje anual mediante el aprendizaje y la celebración de las generaciones de hispanos y latinoamericanos que han influido positivamente y enriquecido a nuestra nación y a la sociedad.

E

ach year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402. American recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture. Hispanics have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work, and service. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuriesold traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their community. Hispanic Heritage Month, whose roots go

back to 1968, begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period and Columbus Day (Día de la Raza) is October 12.

Concieving, Believing How to discipline a child with ADHD while avoiding and Achieving Progress feelings of guilt

T

he symptoms associated with attention-deficithyperactivity disorder can put even the best parenting skills to the test. Children and teenagers with ADHD don’t listen, or at least don’t seem to listen. They often fail to complete tasks, whether it’s a school assignment or a household chore. They can be impulsive, hitting a sibling or classmate when they feel frustrated, or failing to wait their turn when playing a game. As a spotlight is put on the condition during October, which is ADHD Awareness Month, it’s worth noting that the disorder has an impact on the parents as well as the offspring. Irritated by repeated undesirable behaviors, mothers and fathers may lash out, dealing more harshly with infractions than they should. Later, feeling guilty because of their overreaction, the parents may allow the child to get away with other misbehaviors. Then tension builds again until once more the peeved parents explode and begin feeling guilty about their reactions all over again. “It’s important to break that cycle of guilt when dealing with the ADHD child,” says Daniel Amen, M.D., a clinical neuroscientist and brainimaging expert who also is the founder of Amen

Clinics, which treat patients at six locations around the country. “The best way to do that is to deal with difficult behavior whenever it occurs and not allowing the tension to build up. Retraining difficult behavior patterns is an essential part of the treatment for ADD.” Amen, author of “Healing ADD” and the New York Times bestseller “Change Your Brain, Change Your Life,” says there are steps parents can take that will help shape positive behavior in a child with ADD/ADHD and help the parent avoid those guilty feelings. • Define the desired and undesirable behaviors. Before you can shape behavior, you need to be clear on what behaviors you want and don’t want, Amen says. A desirable behavior might be doing homework before going out to play. An undesirable behavior might be talking back to a parent. • Establish how often negative or positive behavior occurs. Keep a log for anywhere from a week to a month to track how many times a behavior occurs. Having a baseline will allow you to know whether your interventions are having an effect. • Communicate rules and expectations clearly. When children know what is expected of them, they

are much more likely to do it. Too often, Amen says, parents believe children should know how to act without the rules being clearly communicated. • Reward desired behavior. Once clear expectations are given, it’s essential to reward the behavior that meets expectations. Rewards can be such things as verbal praise, a hug, a small present, a trip to the library or park, and even money. • Administer clear, unemotional consequences for negative behavior. Be in control of your emotions, don’t nag or belittle the child, and use logical consequences. For example, if a child refuses to put away his or her toys, the toys could be taken away for a few days. Having a good relationship with the child is perhaps the most important factor, Amen says. “With a good parentchild relationship, almost any form of discipline will work,” he says. “With a poor parent-child relationship, any form of discipline will probably fail. Relationships require two things: time and a willingness to listen.” Daniel Amen, M.D., (www.amenclinics.com) is a clinical neuroscientist and brain imaging expert who heads Amen Clinics.

Three key immigration takeaways from recent public polling Washington, DC – Among the rash of recent polling on immigration are three key storylines: 78% of Americans back citizenship for undocumented immigrants in new Post/ABC Poll: The new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that Americans overwhelmingly support citizenship instead of deportation for undocumented immigrants. As the accompanying poll summary notes, “78 percent of voters … prefer offering undocumented immigrants who pass background checks a path to citizenship, which is Clinton’s position … Among Trump’s supporters … 62 percent say they prefer a path to citizenship over deportation.” Americans’ overwhelming support for citizenship is also seen in a CNN poll released last week, which found that by an 88%-11% margin, Americans support, rather than oppose, a path to citizenship. The CNN poll also found that, when asked what our country’s top priority for immigration policy should be, 51% of the public said legalization for undocumented immigrants, while only 11% said deportation. In July, a Gallup poll similarly found that 84% of Americans (91% of Democrats, 85% of Independents, and 76% of Republicans) support a path to citizenship. Latino Decisions’ National and Battleground State Polling: Donald Trump is on track for a historically low performance among Latino voters: Latino Decisions’ recent massive sample nationwide poll of Latino voters finds that Hillary Clinton is beating Donald Trump 70%-19% (and by a slightly larger, 72%-17% margin in an online poll conducted to gauge Latinos’ reactions to Trump’s immigration speech). As Greg Sargent wrote in the Washington Post, the national presidential head-tohead margin is, “better than Barack Obama was faring among Latinos at the same point in 2012, when Latino Decisions polling found him beating

Mitt Romney by 65-26.” Additionally, in the seven battleground states polled by Latino Decisions, Clinton leads Trump by the following margins among Latino voters: 70%-18% in Arizona; 72%-17% in Colorado; 62%-27% in Florida; 70%-14% in Nevada; 73%-14% in North Carolina; 61%-22% in Ohio; and 67%-19% in Virginia. This puts Trump on track to underperform Mitt Romney’s historically poor performance among Latino voters in 2012, when Latinos supported President Obama by a 75%-23% margin over Romney, according to Latino Decisions 2012 Election Eve polling (71%27% in media-sponsored exit polls). Democrats may be “leaving Latino votes on the table” in large part because of failing to define themselves on immigration - especially in key 2016 Senate contests: As NBC News noted of the new Latino polling, Trump “is a drag on other Republican races in swing states, but that Democrats are not making the most of it because they are leaving Latino votes on the table … [the statewide Latino Decisions polling] also found that Latinos were less likely to vote for their Republican Senate candidate if they knew that the candidate was supporting Trump. But many Latino voters were unaware of where either candidate stood on immigration or Trump. Advocates called this a missed opportunity because enthusiasm and interest was reported to be high largely because of the attention brought on by the media on Trump.” In the six battleground states polled that feature a 2016 Senate race: AZ: Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick leads Republican Senator John McCain 57%-31%; 76% of Latino voters don’t know Ann Kirkpatrick’s position on reform with a path to citizenship and executive actions; 61% don’t know John McCain’s. CO: Democratic Senator Michael Bennett leads Republican Darryl Glenn 72%-17%; 69% of

Latino voters don’t know Michael Bennet’s position on reform with a path to citizenship and executive actions; 65% don’t know Darryl Glenn’s. FL: Democrat Patrick Murphy leads Republican Senator Marco Rubio 47%-43%; 63% of Latino voters don’t know Patrick Murphy’s position on reform with a path to citizenship and executive actions; 47% don’t know Marco Rubio’s. NV: Democrat Catherine Cortez-Masto leads Republican Joe Heck 61%-22%; 64% of Latino voters don’t know Catherine Cortez-Masto’s position on reform with a path to citizenship and executive actions; 65% don’t know Joe Heck’s. NC: Democrat Deborah Ross leads Republican Senator Richard Burr 58%24%; 76% of Latino voters don’t know Deborah Ross’s position on reform with a path to citizenship and executive actions; 71% don’t know Richard Burr’s. OH: Democrat Ted Strickland leads Republican Senator Rob Portman 50%-32%; 65% of Latino voters don’t know Ted Strickland’s position on reform with a path to citizenship and executive actions; 62% don’t know Rob Portman’s. According to Lynn Tramonte, Deputy Director of America’s Voice, “It is clear that the American people are light-years ahead of Donald Trump – in fact ahead of the entire GOP – when it comes to supporting common sense immigration reform. And it is also clear that the GOP is falling off a demographic cliff with Latinos, with Trump leading the way to the lowest vote count among Latinos and immigrants ever. Yet Trump’s extremism is not enough for Democrats to maximize their vote share and win more elections. If Democrats run strong on the immigration issue and their plans to address it, they’ll attract Americans of all backgrounds who are tired of the blame game and looking for solutions.” Source America’s Voice

Rev. Jesse Jackson shares his civil rights vision with Central Academy students

T

he Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr., knows from long, hard experience that one of the hardest battles a young person of color will fight is to even imagine that he or she can make a difference. On Tuesday, Sept. 6, Jackson planted that vision into students at Central Academy of Excellence. “If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it,” Jackson told the assembled students and staff. Jackson was already in Kansas City because of his participation at the National Baptist Convention. He visited Central Academy in order to encourage students to pursue their education and get involved in the election process. Reverend Jackson is the

founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. He is one of America’s foremost civil rights, religious and political figures. In 2000, President Bill Clinton awarded Reverend Jackson the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor. At Central Academy, Jackson described working with the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., to help end legal segregation in the United States and begin to implement civil rights legislation and policies. None of those advances would have been possible without the nation’s minorities participating in the election process and voting, Jackson explained. At the end of his speech, Jackson asked

students who were 18 years old to stand up and register to vote. More than 20 students were registered on site at the assembly. During a press conference following the assembly, Jackson suggested that Americans need to place more value of making sure that young people – particularly people of color – get access to a great education. He pointed out that African Americans make up about 8 percent of Missouri’s population, but account for 75 percent of the football players at the University of Missouri. “We must pursue academics with the same kind of vigor with which we pursue athletics,” Jackson said.

Are the Parties Over?

The Latino Vote Beyond the Party Conventions by Angelo Falcón

L

ess than 100 days left, it is now Clinton versus Trump (with Stein and Johnson looking on). We have survived two weeks of the major party conventions, where they picked their champions and unfolded their messages to the electorate. The contrasts between the Democrats and the Republicans couldn’t be greater, making the Latino role clearer regarding who to vote for, but they may have, at the same time, fed a cynicism that could wind up depressing Latino turnout. The main takeaway in the media about the conventions was that Trump’s message was very dark while Clinton’s was too rosy. Both events tried to humanize their standard bearers given the extremely high unfavorability ratings both have accumulated. The results were mounds of insincerity poured on highly imperfect candidates expressed in the “Never Trump” and “Bernie or Bust” movements that, in the end, went nowhere. It has become clear that the Republican Party under Trump is banking on their ability to win primarily with the White male vote, largely discarding Latinos and other communities of color except rhetorically. The themes of the Republican National Convention on “law and order,” immigration as a crime issue, Muslims as terrorists, and so on all resonated as powerful racial dog whistles. This was reflected in the sparse Latino presence at the RNC Convention last week. Of the 2,472 delegates, only about 133 or 5 percent were Latino. Of the 72 speakers, only 6, or 9 percent was Latino. Latinos currently comprise about 18 percent of the US population. The Democrats were much more inclusive of Latinos in their convention. Of the 4,766 delegates attending, 747 were Latinos or 16 percent of the total. Of the speakers at the convention, 19, or 14 percent were Latino. The biggest absence at both conventions was that of Latino musical performers; both events were salsaless. However, it is interesting that the Republican Party has been more successful in fielding Latino candidates for high-level elected office. The only two Latino state governors are Republicans, as are two of the three Latinos serving in the United States Senate. It is also interesting that despite what some refer to as Democratic “Hispandering” Latinos remained



the most underrepresented groups in federal government employment (only 8 percent) and even worse off with President Obama’s appointments (only 7 percent Latino). Regarding the leadership of the Democratic National Committee, on the other hand, appear wellrepresented, at least for the time being. Of the ten leadership positions, three are held by Latinos. Once if a Vice Chair, Maria Elena Durazo, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the AFL-CIO, the National Finance Chair, Henry Muñoz III, and the Communication Director, Luis Miranda. Miranda, unfortunately, has gotten caught in the middle of the Wikileaks controversy and even has Latino immigrant rights advocates calling for his resignation. It is, therefore, surprising that the 18=member DNC Platform Committee had only one Latino member,  U.S. Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Illinois). Also, while they include representatives from non-elected officials, such as a business owner, the Center for American Progress; Union Theological Seminary and the Arab-American Institute. No Latin organizations were included. An argument can be made that while the focus has been on Trump and Sanders as unusual political, personal outliers that, at the core of the current electoral instability we are experiencing, is the result of the increasing dysfunction of the American two-party system. The Republican Party completely lost control of its candidate selection function and the Democrats have barely held on to it. For outsiders like the Latino community, this dysfunction creates opportunities to male political gains. The Republicans are in such disarray that what this party will be morphing into is not knowable ta this point. The Democratic Party, on the other hand, is finding itself with an unexpectedly competitive election and a strong potential interest left internal reform movement courtesy of the Bernie Sanders campaign. Under these circumstances, the role of the Latino vote becomes more important than ever in some battleground states creating an a-unique opening for demanding a greater decisionmaking role in both the DNC and the Clinton campaign.  Angelo Falcón is President of the National Institute for Latino Policy, for which he edits the online information service, The NiLP Report on Latino Policy & Politics, He can be reached at [email protected].

Early-life language stimulation, skills may prevent childhood depression COLUMBIA, Mo. – Childhood depression can lead to social, emotional and academic setbacks during childhood and later in life. However, little is known about what contributes to children’s developing depressive symptoms. Researchers from University of Missouri have determined that the level of language skills young children possess early in life can predict the likelihood they may experience depression. Keith Herman, a professor in MU’s College of Education, found that children who experience low levels of language learning stimulation beginning at three years of age are more likely to experience language delays by first grade and are three times more likely to develop depression by third grade. “It is clear that the amount of language that children are exposed to early on is very important for their development,” Herman said. “Whether it is through pre-school classes, interactions with parents and siblings or through consuming media such as television and books, exposure to greater amounts of language and vocabulary will help prepare children to succeed socially and academically when they begin school. If children already are experiencing language and subsequent social and academic deficits by the first grade, chances are they will continue to fall further behind in school each year, which can lead to negative self-perceptions and depressive symptoms by third grade.” Herman and a team of researchers examined data from 587 children and households in

Hawaii. The data included children’s language skills and exposure to language stimulation in the home beginning at age three. The children were tested on their language skills in the first grade and then tested for depressive symptoms in the third grade. The children who had higher language exposure and stimulation as three-yearolds were more likely to have adequate to betterthan-average language skills in first grade. They also were much less likely to experience depression by the third grade. Children who did not receive adequate language stimulation early in life were much more likely to have poor language skills and



ultimately experience depression. “These findings are important because we have been able to identify key stages of child development that can help determine the mental health of children later in their academic careers,” Herman said. “By understanding that the amount of language a child is exposed to early in life is important, we can create interventions and programs that can help parents and childcare providers improve language exposure during this critical development age. Also, we can identify first graders who may lack language skills and give them extra attention to help catch them up academically

Talk about humble beginnings CONT./PAGE 1

the newspaper after my regular news duties. One year of double duty, basically 7 days a week and an average of 70 hours took its toll on me and of course my family. I finally had to say goodbye and thank you to Fox 4. It was time for me to move on with my dream of bringing full-time Latino news coverage to our growing Latino community. In 1996, a few months before we premiered, I was asked to MC a fiesta at the City Market. I thought it made sense to place an informational booth to inform the people that in a matter of months, Kansas City Hispanic News would premiere. We didn’t have a lot to offer in our booth, not even a prototype of the newspaper. My wife Ramona and my family were manning the booth while I was on stage announcing and introducing dance groups and the bands. My sister Susie came to me on stage and asked me if I had change for twenty dollars. I didn’t realize what she needed it for. She told me people were in line wanting to buy a subscription to the newspaper. We only had a banner that read “Coming Soon Kansas City Hispanic News” nothing else. To my surprise, my family sold nearly three hundred dollars in subscriptions.

People paid with cash and checks while others promised to subscribe. One person told me they had seen my work on television and “I want to read your newspaper when it comes out.” It was a great feeling for me and my family that people would buy a product sight unseen. You talk about humble beginning. Recently, I looked back to what I wrote in that first September 16, 1996 edition. I wanted to see if I was meeting my own mission statement to our readers. I said then that I wanted to bring a more in-depth approach to covering news in Kansas City. I wanted to hear the voices of our Latino communities men, women, children, students, area businesses, city and county governments and most importantly the people of Kansas City. I truly believe we have achieved that with our staff of professional journalists/reporters. Often newspapers are referred to as the voice of a community. That is not enough for this newspaper. YOU are the voice and we are the messenger of your opinions and thoughts. Over the last 20 years, we have covered what I call the good the bad and the ugly in Kansas City - murders, robbery, scandals in government, locally and nationally,

just to mention a few. We have also celebrated good news, highlighting people who are making a difference in KC whether helping a family in need, a family dealing with cancer or covering a story of a family that has lost a family member in a drive-by shooting. We have also endorsed a few politicians over the years. We have had readers that have complained about our choices, some accusing me of being a Republican while others accused me of being a Democrat because some of our readers believe that we gave more coverage to one party over the other. We strive to bring the news that people are talking about so please keep those calls and emails coming our way. We pride ourselves on reporting the news with balance and clarity to ensure you are getting both sides of a story. We often see that other news outlets are not covering stories in our growing Latino neighborhoods, whether in Kansas or Missouri. There are many stories that need to be covered and we do our best to cover them, and yes from time to time we miss a few because there is so much going on. From day one my philosophy has been, if we can make you think, laugh or even cry about the information you read each week in KCHN,

Hablar de origenes humildes CONT./PÁGINA 1

de 26 años cuando empecé a pensar en la idea de un periódico. Mi director de noticias, Mike McDonald, me convenció de quedarme en el canal de noticias y producir el periódico después de mis deberes regulares de noticias. Un año de una doble función, básicamente, los 7 días de la semana y un promedio de 70 horas tuvieron su efecto en mí, y por supuesto, en mi familia. Al final tuve que decir adiós y gracias a Fox 4. Era el momento para mí de seguir adelante con mi sueño, el de llevar la cobertura de noticias latinas de tiempo completo a nuestra creciente comunidad latina. En 1996, unos meses antes de que estrenamos, me pidieron que fuera el maestro de ceremonias en una fiesta en el City Market. Me pareció que tenía sentido colocar un stand para informar a la gente, que en cuestión de meses, Kansas City Hispanic News se estrenaría. No teníamos mucho que ofrecer en nuestro stand, ni siquiera un prototipo del periódico. Mi esposa Ramona, y mi familia, atendían el stand mientras yo estaba en el escenario anunciando y presentando a los grupos de baile y las bandas musicales. Mi hermana Susie se acerco a mí en el escenario y me preguntó si tenía cambio para un billete de veinte dólares. No me di cuenta para que lo necesitaba. Ella me dijo que la gente estaba haciendo fila porque querían comprar una suscripción al periódico. Sólo teníamos un letrero que decía “Próximamente Kansas City Hispanic News”, nada más. Para mi sorpresa, mi

familia vendió cerca de trescientos dólares en suscripciones. Las personas pagaron con dinero en efectivo y cheques, mientras que otros se comprometieron a suscribirse. Una persona me dijo que habían visto mi trabajo en la televisión y “quiero leer su periódico cuando salga”. Fue una gran sensación para mí y para mi familia, que la gente comprara un producto que aún no conocía. Se habla de comienzos humildes. Recientemente, miré hacia atrás, a lo que había escrito en esa primera edición del 16 de septiembre de 1996. Yo quería ver si estaba cumpliendo con mi misión de objetivos fundamentales para nuestros lectores. Dije entonces, que quería traer un enfoque más en profundidad al momento de cubrir las noticias en Kansas City. Quería escuchar las voces de nuestras comunidades latinas hombres, mujeres, niños, estudiantes, empresas de la zona, los gobiernos de ciudades y condados y lo más importante, la gente de Kansas City. Realmente creo que lo hemos conseguido con nuestro equipo de periodistas/reporteros profesionales. A menudo, a los periódicos se les conoce como la voz de una comunidad. Eso no es suficiente para este periódico. USTED es la voz y nosotros somos el mensajero de sus opiniones y pensamientos. Durante los últimos 20 años, hemos cubierto lo que yo llamo lo bueno, lo malo y lo feo en Kansas City - asesinatos, robos, escándalos en el gobierno, a nivel local y nacional, sólo por mencionar algunos temas. También hemos celebrado buenas noticias, destacando a

las personas que están haciendo una diferencia en KC ya sea ayudando a una familia en necesidad, a una familia enfrentando el cáncer o cubriendo una historia de una familia que ha perdido a un integrante en un tiroteo. También hemos respaldado a unos pocos políticos en los últimos años. Hemos tenido a lectores que se han quejado de nuestras decisiones, algunos acusándome de ser republicano, mientras que otros me acusaron de ser un demócrata porque algunos de nuestros lectores creen que dimos mayor cobertura a una partido sobre el otro. Nos esforzamos en traer la noticia que está discutiendo la gente, así que, por favor, continúen con esas llamadas y correos electrónicos dirigidos a nosotros. Estamos orgullosos de informar las noticias con imparcialidad y claridad, para asegurar que están recibiendo los ambos lados de una historia. A menudo vemos que otras agencias de noticias no están cubriendo historias en nuestros crecientes barrios latinos, ya sea en Kansas o Missouri. Hay muchas historias que necesitan ser cubiertas y hacemos todo lo posible para cubrirlas y, sí, de vez en cuando nos faltan algunas porque hay tantas cosas que pasan. Desde el primer día, mi filosofía ha sido, si somos capaces de hacer pensar, reír o incluso llorar con la información que usted lee cada semana en KCHN, entonces estamos haciendo nuestro trabajo. La familia Arce está orgulloso de nuestro personal y el trabajo que realizan, no sólo para nosotros sino también para los lectores. Se han necesitado a varias decenas de personas durante los

YOUR LATINO CONNECTION SINCE 1996

As Kansas City Hispanic News celebrates its 20th Anniversary, Joe and Ramona Arce, owners of the publication, want to give a huge thank you to all the loyal readers, advertisers and all the individuals who helped to bring KCHN to this milestone. “We couldn’t have done this without them … there are too many people to mention by name,” said Joe Arce.

Mientras Kansas City Hispanic News celebra su 20avo Aniversario, Joe y Ramona Arce, propietarios de la publicación, quieren dar un enorme gracias a los fieles lectores, anunciantes y todas las personas que ayudaron a traer a KCHN a este punto. "No podríamos haber hecho esto sin ellos ... hay demasiadas personas que mencionar por su nombre," dijo Joe Arce. then we are doing our job. The Arce family is proud of our staff and the work they do, not only for us but also for the readers. It took several dozens of people over the last 20 years to bring us to this point. We couldn’t be happier with the work they have done on behalf of this publication. So we thank them as well. You, our readers, are important to us. You are the ones that call, email or text into our newsroom

letting us know that there is a news story in your community. There are more new stories in our growing Latino community today then there were 20 years ago. The population of Latinos in greater Kansas City has grown to over 200 thousand today. That is what keep us in business and why we strive to provide you with local, in-depth news coverage.
