The animals in my neighborhood

The animals in my neighborhood
You might say that animals such as squirrels and rabbits are residents' neighbors or parts of people's life in University of St. Thomas. However, as a newcomer who has just stayed in St. Paul for a week, I can't help stopping to watch or have a photo shoot again and again when the animals bump into my sight.

'Forward, not back'

'Forward, not back'

Even before applying to WPI, there was a plan. If I was approved, I would stay almost one month more to cover the United States elections. It would be two dreams at a time, since I’ve always aspired to both participate in a fellowship and to cover the American elections.

Inefficient democracy

 As most of my traveling fellows probably also noticed, congressmen, liberal journalists as well as university professors often complain about the polarization of the american society. (Not only in terms of political views, but also considering regional, religious and social differences, though let us here concentrate on the political divide.) We met a bunch of left-leaning  thinkers, who kept arguing that the GOP moved further to the right than ever before, particularly considering their views on social issues.

Latin U.S. of America

The immigration in United States has always attracted my attention, particularly by the fact it has been since 1965 mostly a product of the Latin-American region, where a come from. And one of the aspects I consider more interesting is the demographic changings it is provoking in the US for the long term.

According to a projection done by Pew Research Center (Washington) in 2008, the number of Hispanics in the US will triple and represent the major part of American population growth in a 45 years-period, going from 14% in 2005 to 29% in 2050.

Obama faithful brave the squall for democratic convention climax

Published at The Australian online, September 7

ANOTHER storm sweeps through Charlotte, cooling the air and sending people running to bus shelters and the awnings of skyscrapers. The downpour is intense and those caught in the squall are saturated. But the rain won't dampen the enthusiasm of the people of this southern city for perhaps the biggest event in their history, the speech tonight by Barack Obama. Within minutes the storm is over and the t-shirt vendors are out peddling their wears again.

JULIAN Castro is quick to play down comparisons between himself and Barack Obama, but the personal and political similarities between the pair are there.
