25 Lessons book cover

Lorenzo Dominguez, a photographer, recently published 25 Lessons (Blurb Publishing, $39.95), a 130-page book about his life illustrated with 500 photos, almost all in color. In this first book he traced his journey from a stifled suburban husband and father, through the breakdown of his marriage and his refuge in a little church in Manhattan.

For three months he swapped caretaker duties for accommodations, living simply and by himself at the church. The stay provided him an opportunity to examine his life. He took advantage of his time by photographing New York City at night. This brought to his mind some of life’s lessons which he shared in the book.

Lorenzo Dominguez, author, 25 Lessons

“I wholeheartedly attribute much of the verve, the passion and the extraordinary appreciation I have for life to my Latin heritage. With 25 Lessons, I’ve attempted to convey much of this both through my words and photography,” said Dominguez. “I can sum up my philosophy about my art, my work and how I live my life in general with a traditional Spanish toast I like to propose whenever I am out, enjoying the company of my friends, ‘Al amor, dinero, salud, y el tiempo para gozarlos todos.'”

In the book, Dominguez shares his secret to the art of living and the simple rules of photography. He meant for the book to be inspirational and poetic; and to spark readers’ creativity, and reawaken their passion for life.

Dominguez grew up in California until he was 24, coming into contact with many Mexican Americans. In 1992, he moved to New York City to attend graduate school. There he encountered a different kind of Latin culture through new friends and neighbors of Puerto Rican, Dominican, Colombian and Cuban background.

He is a director of marketing and communications at a Fortune 500 company in New York City. He is a resident of Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

Dominguez is a graduate of the World Arts and Culture program at the University of California at Los Angeles, and a graduate of the School of International and Public Affairs program at Columbia University. His photography has been featured in fotoMagazin, a German photo magazine, and in 275 blogs, websites, and print publications.

The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) has selected the winners of this year’s Excellence In Multi-Cultural Marketing Awards (EMMA). Forty-seven awards will be presented September 15, 2008 at a special session of the 22nd Annual NAMIC Conference, Diversity: Pipeline to Innovation in New York City.

The selection was made, from an undisclosed number of submissions, by 29 judges including representatives from MIO.TV, Telemundo, TV One, Latin2Latin, TBS, TCM & TNT, OlumpuSat, The Gilmore Group, OlumpuSat, Ibis Communications and TuTv.

First established as the NAMIC Excellence Awards in 1992 to recognize marketing and public affairs initiatives targeting multi-ethnic consumers, the competition was renamed Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards and expanded to include case studies in 2004.

“The buying power of ethnic consumers has greater impact year over year,” said Daphne Leroy, vice president, Marketing and Communications, NAMIC. “We are proud to raise awareness of the outstanding efforts put forth by the NAMIC EMMA winners to reach multi-ethnic communities, which are critical to the viability of our industry.”

There are two award categories: case studies/campaigns and marketing tactics. Entries in each category are judged within two divisions: companies/distributors and networks/industry suppliers. This year’s awards were sponsored by ESPN Deportes and presented in conjunction with CableFAX Daily, the competition’s exclusive media partner.

Cox Communications and Rogers Cable Communications each received three first-place wins to lead first-place honorees in the cable companies/distributors division. Comcast earned two first-place honors while Time Warner Cable finished first-place in a single category.

TBS led all networks/industry suppliers with five first-place awards. TV One earned multiple honors, including two first-place wins. Networks earning a single first-place win include: International Networks and Si TV. Discovery Networks U.S. Hispanic Group took first place honors in the newly added “Diversity Awareness” category. Additional winners within the networks/industry suppliers group include: Ameredia, Inc., BET, Home Box Office, Inc., MTV, mun2, Showtime Networks Inc, iSorpresa!, TuTv, Univision Communications Inc., and VH1.

The competition is the work of NAMIC’s Multi-Cultural Marketing Committee, a consortium of industry multi-cultural marketing representatives. To be eligible, campaigns must be developed for the cable and telecommunications industry with the goal of targeting one or more cultural segments in the the African American, Asian and Hispanic markets.

Entries were evaluated on sound and innovative strategy, strength of creative execution against the strategy and evaluation of results. The competition deviates from the traditional “best of” competition method; instead each entry was judged against a standard of excellence and not against other entrants.

National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC ) is an organization dedicated to multi-ethnic diversity in the communications industry. Founded in 1980 as a non-profit trade association, NAMIC has 2,000 professionals in 17 chapters nationwide.

The organization has initiatives that focus on education, advocacy and empowerment, to champion equity and inclusion in the workforce, with special attention to ensuring that the leadership cadres of our nation’s communications industry giants reflect the multi-ethnic richness of the populations they serve.

On Monday, September 15, the National Football League and ESPN will kick off Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15) with a special celebration surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys Monday Night Football game (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN and ESPN Deportes). The organizers consider the game the signature event for the NFL’s Fútbol Americano initiative celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, as well as a signature event within ESPN’s month-long campaign and programming efforts on ESPN Deportes to recognize the accomplishments of Hispanics.

ESPN Deportes, the only Spanish-language network in the country to broadcast football in Spanish, has been celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month for five years. This is the third season that ESPN Deportes broadcasts NFL in Spanish.

According to the 2007 ESPN Deportes Hispanic Sports Poll, 64.4 percent of English dominant Hispanics are NFL fans and 34.3 percent called themselves avid NFL fans; 64.4 percent of respondents ranked NFL as English dominant Hispanics favorite sport to watch; among Spanish dominant Hispanics, 32.8 percent of respondents considered themselves NFL fans and 8.7 percent called themselves avid NFL fans.

The Monday Night Football game telecast on ESPN is scheduled to include special graphic integrations, vignettes and audio from the ESPN Deportes Spanish-language telecast featuring Emmy-nominated play-by-play commentator Álvaro Martín and former NFL kicker Raúl Allegre.

There will also be a customized version of the Hank Williams Jr. open, including some lyrics in Spanish, during the telecast. And, the Monday Night Countdown pre-game (7 p.m.) will highlight events with special features and coverage of the national anthem, performed by a Latino artist at Texas Stadium that evening.

“We’re excited to partner with ESPN to shine a national spotlight on Hispanic Heritage Month,” said Mark Waller, senior vice president, Marketing and Sales, NFL. “The Monday Night telecast will kick off festivities across the country to honor the NFL’s Hispanic players and fans.”

“The MNF game telecasts on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, as well as surrounding coverage and promotional support across multiple ESPN platforms, will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and the passion that Hispanics have long had for the NFL,” said John Wildhack, executive vice president, Program Acquisitions and Strategy, ESPN.

The day of the game, the NFL, ESPN and the Cowboys will host a MNF Chalk Talk Luncheon for 150 invited guests at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Dallas. Alumni players from the Eagles and Cowboys have been invited to the event in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. Martín and Allegre will be part of the panel of NFL experts. One of the organizations to be recognized for its work in the Dallas community will be a local Hispanic non-profit organization.

In anticipation of the Eagles-Cowboys game, Fútbol Americano messaging will be integrated into ESPN’s MNF promotion across television, radio, online and print. The following week, ESPN plans promotional support in anticipation of Hispanic Heritage Celebration events in San Diego around the Jets-Chargers MNF game. During that period, the NFL will air new spots from its “We are fans!” television campaign in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month. Also, promoters will run a print ad in USA Today Sports in the hope of driving tune-in to the MNF Hispanic Heritage Month game.

Hispanic Heritage Month activities in Dallas will begin Saturday, September 7, when Texas Stadium and the Cowboys host the 30th annual Fiestas Patrias, a free outdoor Hispanic Music Festival in Texas. ¡En Vivo!, the ESPN Deportes interactive traveling stadium, will be part of the celebration. Local community outreach events continue September 13, with an NFL Play 60 Youth Football Festival at Texas Stadium.

ESPN’s month-long Hispanic Heritage Month celebration will kick off September 1 with an integrated campaign across various ESPN entities on television, radio, print and online. Titled “Hispanics on and off the Field,” the campaign is designed to highlight the contributions Hispanics have made in the world of sports. ESPN’s Hispanic Heritage Month schedule will feature two new programs and daily 30-second vignettes honoring Hispanic athletes.

Themed programming will include J.C. Chávez, a film about the feats of Julio César Chávez, a Hispanic boxer. Directed by Diego Luna of Y Tu Mamá También (2001), the film examines Mexico’s adoration of the iconic six-time world title champion and will air on television for the first time Saturday, September 27 at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN Deportes and ESPN Classic.

Booklet promotes healthy eating for children

Melinda Hemmelgarn R.D., M.S. and Jan Wolterman believe nutrition education has best results when it features creative and interactive material that involves the parents and child. To promote healthy eating among children they became coauthors of a 32-page self published booklet that does just that. Already they have sold 23,000 copies of the booklet, published in 2006, and available in English and Spanish.

According to a recent research study the Munch Crunch Bunch food characters in their book were likely to influence children, ages 5 to 8, to make healthy food choices. Children in the first and second grades completed a questionnaire tracking their intake of food. Following that task they participated in a nutrition education activity using the Treasure Hunt with the Munch Crunch Bunch story/activity book.

hmprmunchs.jpg

Each child also took a book home to share with their family and to use on subsequent trips to the grocery store, utilizing the foodles (food riddle cards) to track down fresh fruit and veggies. Three weeks later, they responded to a second food questionnaire.

The results indicated intake of fresh fruits and vegetables had risen 24 percent and 14 percent respectively and intake of soda pop, fast food, and sweet snacks dropped significantly. Study results were independently reviewed by Ohio’s Evaluation and Assessment Center for Mathematics & Science Education.

“As a mother, I understand the power of getting kids involved in making good food, fun. The Munch Crunch Bunch can help change picky eaters into curious, hearty, healthy eaters,” said Hemmelgarn, who is a registered dietitian.

hmprjanwolterman.jpg

Jan Wolterman, coauthor, Treasure Hunt with the Munch Crunch Bunch

“Sad to say, things haven’t improved much over the years. In fact, they have gotten much worse. So I resurrected my Soup to Nuts food characters, renamed them the Munch Crunch Bunch and put them back to work educating, entertaining, and empowering children to junk the junk food and eat healthy. It’s a wonderful tool for parents and teachers to use with children ages 3 to 8,” said Wolterman.

The authors believe there is definitely a need for health and nutrition education material for Hispanic families with children. A Children’s Nutrition Research Center (CNRC) 2004 study at Baylor, Viva la Familia!, was designed to identify the reasons why so many Hispanic children develop serious weight problems.

Latinos rely on media, social networks for health care information

Posted by Elena del Valle on August 21, 2008

hmprffbpeople.jpg

Photo: FreePhotosBank.com

Latinos health care access and health care information access differs in some ways from the general population. Although many Latinos lack health care providers and have had limited access to health care information in the past year; more than eight in ten respondents to a recent telephone survey rely on media and other sources for health care information, according to a Pew Hispanic Center report released earlier this month.

Latinos rely heavily on the health care information they access through media sources and 79 percent of respondents said they act on this information. This indicates media and social networks are powerful resources to reach America’s Latino population.

Although many Latinos (71 percent) said they received information from a doctor in the past year, an equal proportion indicated their source of health information was social networks such as family, friends, church groups and community groups. And 83 percent said they obtained health information from the media, especially television.

The researchers concluded that Hispanic men, youth and the less educated were the least likely to have a regular health care provider. This is similar to the demographic pattern present among non Hispanic whites who also lack a health care provider. Spanish dominant, less acculturated Latinos who have been in the United States a short time or are foreign citizens are more likely to report a lack of health care access.

At the same time, many Latinos who responded to the survey saying they have no regular place they visit for medical care are high school graduates (50 percent), United States born (30 percent) and have health insurance (45 percent). Many indicated they don’t have a health care provider because they are rarely ill.

The report, based on a nationally representative bilingual telephone survey of 4,013 Hispanic adults, was conducted between July 16, 2007 and September 23, 2007. It was written by Gretchen Livingston, senior researcher, and Susan Minushkin, deputy director, of the Pew Hispanic Center, and D’Vera Cohn, senior writer, Pew Research Center. They also examined Latino knowledge of diabetes issues and conducted the report in conjunction with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The Pew Hispanic Center, an initiative of the Pew Research Center, is a non-partisan, non-advocacy research organization based in Washington, D.C. The Pew Hispanic Center is funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts.
