Mes de la Hispanidad inspira liderazgo, empoderamiento, sentido comunitario

(NewsUSA) - Al celebrar el Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana, temas inspiradores tales como el liderazgo, el empoderamiento y el sentido comunitario tomarán un lugar central.

Durante las próximas semanas, los casi 54 millones de estadounidenses y latinoamericanos hispanos que viven actualmente en los EE.UU. celebrarán su patrimonio cultural con amigos, familiares y sus comunidades. Lo que experimentarán es una sensación general de orgullo como ninguna otra.

Desde el 15 de septiembre hasta el 15 de octubre, los EE.UU. rendirán homenaje a las contribuciones, historias y tradiciones de estadounidenses cuyos ancestros vinieron de México, España y países de habla hispana en el Caribe, América Central y América del Sur.

Las fechas son importantes porque representan la independencia de cinco países latinoamericanos: Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua y Costa Rica. Además, México también declaró su independencia el 16 de septiembre y Chile el 18 de septiembre.

En reconocimiento de este mes histórico, JCPenney se asociará con Gonzo Soccer y su fundadora, Mónica González. González, ex jugadora profesional de fútbol y ahora analista de fútbol y locutora de ESPN, creó Gonzo Soccer una academia de liderazgo que ofrece a niñas entre los 8 a 16 años de sectores más vulnerables, entrenamiento de fútbol y valiosas habilidades de liderazgo y preparación para la vida con el fin de fomentar su crecimiento y darles la posibilidad de desarrollar todo su potencial como atletas y estudiantes.

Con esta asociación, JCPenney cree que puede honrar no sólo lo que estas niñas pueden lograr en el campo de futbol, sino también su compromiso para tener éxito como mujeres, atletas, y como miembros orgullosos de la vibrante comunidad hispana. Para empezar, JCPenney ofrecerá una clínica de fútbol gratuita en Houston el 30 de septiembre donde González enseñará ejercicios, trucos y consejos de fútbol para jóvenes de la zona. JCPenney equipará a las niñas con su línea de ropa deportiva Xersion y les ofrecerá las últimas tendencias en peinados deportivos por estilistas del salón JCP. Los amigos y familiares están invitados a asistir y animar a las jóvenes mientras disfrutan de la música, la comida y la diversión.

"Mónica y sus chicas demuestran fuerza, poder y perseverancia a través de su dedicación al deporte y queremos celebrarlo con ellas mientras aceptamos su herencia hispana", dice Lyris Leos, director de marketing multicultural de JCPenney.

Hero rats sniff out danger

Traditionally, you wouldn't gift someone a rat -- not someone you like, anyway. And even if a gift-wrapped rodent was in the cards, you'd likely shy away from the giant African pouched rat, which -- as the name suggests -- is rather large (think cat-sized).

3 Fishermen Rescued at Sea Thanks to GPS Device

Lifestyles - Fri, 09/26/2014 - 08:35
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - The effective use of the VehSmart GPS device likely saved a trio of fishermen from Ecuador after their boat was attacked by robbers. The fishermen were sailing their small boat, Luis Miguel, southwest of the Santa Elena peninsula, when they were overtaken by robbers who stole their personal belongings and the boat's motor before locking them in a storage compartment, according to the Ecuadorean Navy (DIRNEA).

The fishermen were able to break out of the compartment and deploy the "panic button" on the VehSmart GPS device installed on the boat. This feature links directly to Ecuador's National Emergency Response System, and a Coast Guard team was able to locate and rescue the fishermen within three hours.

The VehSmart system is built around a small, portable device that, among other features, pinpoints the user's location and allows anyone on the vessel to activate a distress call in case of emergency. The Luis Miguel was equipped with the GPS locator technology as part of a pilot program to install GPS systems in 4,000 small artisanal fishing vessels.

The program is sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Fisheries (MAGAP) of Ecuador and is designed to provide fishermen with greater security and peace of mind against threats of piracy and the often dangerous marine environment. In addition, the VehSmart technology allows authorities to monitor the fleet's movements to help prevent overfishing in certain areas and to protect zones that are off-limits for fishing.

The GPS technology used in the Ecuadorean fishing fleet combines VehSmart's telematics and the SmartOne satellite transmitter from Globalstar, Inc.

"The installation only requires less than 15 minutes, which is a small investment to ensure someone's safety," said Brad Merritt, president of VehSmart.

"Only vessels registered under the program receive this protection, and MAGAP is encouraging the artisanal fishing community to take the time to have the units installed as quickly as possible," according to a statement from VehSmart. Without the GPS technology, the fishermen could have drifted for days or been lost at sea.
