A lot can change in a couple of years, especially if you are self-motivated, willing to put in the work, and determined to make an impact. It’s not a mission for the faint of heart, but for those willing to accept those challenges, the sky is the limit, and Pete Tavares, of Salinas, California, is a prime example.

I first met Pete about four years ago. At the time, all I knew was that he was a business owner, proud father, and basically a one-man car club. He had explained to me that one of his life goals was to build a car for each of his kids so they could cruise together. Since then, they’ve grown to fifteen members that share a like-minded vision to invest into their communities and deliver a positive impact.

DEMANDA DE BANCO AZTECA VS. PROCESO Un juez parcial y un expediente alterado

Rodrigo Cortés Domínguez Toledano, juez a cargo del juicio por “daño moral” que Ricardo Salinas Pliego y Banco Azteca entablaron contra el semanario Proceso y tres de sus trabajadores, actuó de forma arbitraria y parcial para favorecer al polémico multimillonario y a su empresa. Lo hizo a tal punto que el expediente a su cargo fue alterado para tratar de enmendar un error cometido por los abogados del magnate, uno de los cuales, por cierto, fue apoderado legal de la sociedad de papel sueca NPK Holding AB, en ese entonces accionista de Grupo Fertinal y vinculada al propio Salinas Pliego.

Banco Azteca y las tarjetas Bienestar: Un contrato millonario con dinero destinado a los pobres

A pesar de que se resiste a pagar impuestos, Banco Azteca, propiedad del magnate Ricardo Salinas Pliego, es beneficiario de un contrato que le asignó de manera directa el gobierno de López Obrador para dispersar en el país los fondos de los programas sociales mediante las tarjetas Bienestar. En 2019 obtuvo por lo menos 300 millones de pesos sólo por el manejo de cuentas. Más aún, el contrato –del que Proceso tiene copia– le permite acceder a la base de datos de los programas sociales, utilizar los datos personales de sus beneficiarios e incluso cobrar de esas tarjetas adeudos por la compra de artículos en las tiendas Elektra.

WHEN YOU... ARE THE DANCE

Kathak, one of eight Indian classical dance forms, originated it is said, in the 3rd or 4th century BC with mythologies like the Mahabharata having mentioned Kathak in their narratives. “Kathak” is derived from the Sanskrit word Katha [Story]. Hence this dance form which narrates a story through the expressions and body movements came to be called Kathak. It was during the Mughal era, in the 16th century A.D. that Kathak received Royal patronage and was performed in the courts. During this period, Kathak received elements from other dance forms like the Persian dance form wherein the art of straight leg movements was introduced along with the spinning movement. Similarities have also been noted between Kathak and the Spanish dance of Flamenco especially in the way feet movements are done. However, Lucknow and Banaras in India, became the two regions specialising in the Kathak dance form. Farah Yasmeen Sheikh shares with us her own travels with Kathak and how she identifies with its rich tradition.
