Mayor of Lightning in a Bottle Enters Race for Mayor of Los Angeles

Do LaB™ Officially Endorses Paul E. Amori in his bid for City Mayor Today, Lightning In a Bottle Arts and Music Festival, a creative mecca for creative artists and performers by Do LaB™, announced the official endorsement of improvisational dynamo and Founder of Amori’s Casino & Burlesque, Paul E. Amori, for Mayor of Los Angeles. For the first time ever, an interactive artist steeped in music festival culture is applying the ideas and solutions from the festival community directly into a real-life play for public office. In the current Vote 4 Love campaign, Amori distinguishes himself from other candidates of the day by running on what he calls “the Love Party” platform, which asks voters a simple question: “How do we create the most love for the most people?” In an election held at the festival in 2012, Amori won the honorary title of Mayor of Lightning in a Bottle with his trademark Vote 4 Love campaigning. The following year he independently launched a crowd-funding campaign to bring a vision of his own Casino & Burlesque to the festival. In a landslide turnout of small contributions, his enthusiastic supporters donated more than fifteen thousand dollars to build a home for Love at LIB. Amori’s Casino & Burlesque has since been a staple of the festival and a beacon to others who dare to dream of the possibilities of a world with a little more love in it. Of the Vote 4 Love campaign, Lightning In a Bottle Co-Founder Josh Flemming said, “We are humbled and excited to see one of our own out there being a voice for good. In the dynamic and all too often disheartening landscape of American politics, it’s refreshing to see someone from the local community of artists leading the charge to bring hope to areas and people that need it most. For this reason, we’re proud to support Paul E. Amori for Mayor of Los Angeles in 2017.“ To define the Love Party, Paul E. Amori summarizes the key points of his platform as: LOVE AS A CORE VALUE – Many of the issues faced by Angelenos and local governance today, like homelessness, traffic, the housing shortage and the rising cost of living –  can be solved through a dedicated and intentional focus to spread love. IMPROVED VOTER TURNOUT – Less than 20% of registered voters are expected to turnout for LA’s 2017 mayoral election. We want to engage voters by showing them how to become involved in policy creation.   CROWD-SOURCED SOLUTIONS – One main reason people are disenchanted with politics is they feel no candidates are offering a voice that truly represents them. By sourcing ideas from the community, real solutions can be made to address real issues. To become involved with the campaign or to get more information about Paul E. Amori and the Love Party, visit Vote4Love.com and learn all about how to “Love Your Vote” on March 7th,...

The Struggle of a Bilingual America: A retrospective on bilingual education and biliteracy programs and how Montebello USD’s Dual Language Immersion program leads by example

The Struggle of a Bilingual America: A retrospective on bilingual education and biliteracy programs and how Montebello USD’s Dual Language Immersion program leads by example

“We can no longer afford to simply learn languages and cultures; but rather, we must provide students with opportunities to learn languages and cultures by participating in communicative interactions that prepare for real-world language use and global citizenship. Language learning needs to be a lifelong endeavor.” —“Developing Global Competency” introduction excerpt to the California World Languages Content Standards 2009. In the mid-2000s, California was experiencing a reawakening as technology and the global economy advanced connecting countries and redefining international commerce in its wake. The global market itself by the nature of professional natural selection began to evolve eliminating positions of old in favor of new innovation and modern skill sets. Mass communication itself had to evolve in order to catch up. Global markets opened up inviting international players to play with their US counterparts. Forecasters predicted that a major change was going to hit our economy, but the degree to which it actually occurred in hindsight was unprecedented. After the Great Recession of 2008 struck sending ripples of economic uncertainty across the globe, scholars, educators, and professional elites agreed that the US had to better prepare its youth for the 21st century marketplace which included changing old perspectives like that of bilingual education, bi-literacy, and multi-cultural awareness. California became the first state to lead the charge on this linguistic enlightenment. After a political battle that nearly put the state on the path of an English-only state through Prop 227, educators and policy makers worked tirelessly to keep most of the current bilingual programs afloat and set the groundwork to which would later develop into the first state Seal of Biliteracy. The Seal of Biliteracy is now a nationally recognized certification awarded to students who meet all the bilingual literacy requirements that will better prepare students to develop multicultural and language relationships that will increase their chances of success in the 21st century marketplace. California became the first state in the nation to award the state Seal of Biliteracy to students in participating school districts in 2012. Ten thousand seals were actually awarded that year for proficiency in 29 languages. That number doubled the following year as additional school districts, charter schools, and county education offices began participating. In 2015, records show that California awarded 31,816 seals to graduating seniors in a state where 22% of the state student population at the time were English language learners. After the implementation of California’s Seal of Biliteracy, other states like New York, Texas, New Mexico, Illinois, and Washington state followed adopting their own respective Seals of Biliteracy with several more waiting for legislation to pass in their respective districts. However, the benefits of a bilingual education and literacy are not only regulated to the economy alone. Empirical research shows that the benefits extend to cognitive, academic, social and cultural areas of interest. Language learning has been found to increase long-term cognition improving memory, problem solving, pattern recognition and critical thinking skills while preventing mental diseases related to aging like Alzheimer’s and dementia. Academically, students in dual language immersion programs promoting bilingual literacy and multiculturalism show increases in academic performance on achievement tests especially in areas related to language and literacy (California Campaign for Biliteracy. 2014). In a Stanford study, for example, students finishing middle school showed that they “were doing better in...

Read Conmigo’s documentary on Bilingual America revitalizes the topic of Bilingual Education and Bi-literacy for many in Montebello

Read Conmigo’s documentary on Bilingual America revitalizes the topic of Bilingual Education and Bi-literacy for many in Montebello

In the weeks that led up to the 2016 general elections, Californians were weighing the benefits and the disadvantages of a number of propositions and measures. Among them was Prop 58, the proposition that basically repealed restrictions set forth by Prop 227 which prohibited the use of non-English languages in California public schools. Prop 58 was designed to establish dual language immersion programs to both native English speakers and non-native English speakers in public schools. For over 20 years the topic of bilingualism and bi-literacy had been a sensitive issue in the state spurring debate and outcry from parties on both sides bringing into question the role of education and national identity along with issues on immigration and normative, social acclamation. During the 90s, voter sentiment against bilingualism saw it as an affront to the nation’s essential identity given that English was seen as the nation’s unspoken, official language in a country of numerous ethnicities and countries of origin. Part of the sentiment grew from the fact that non-English-speaking students had to compete with their English-speaking counterparts in the classroom while public schools were pressured to help students meet state and federal educational standards. This required the implementation of English as a Second Language (ESL) and language acquisition programs to speed the students’ acclamation into the “societal fold”. Back then, speaking any language other than English in school was looked down upon adding to the growing anti-immigrant sentiment at the time. However, as time progressed and a changing global economy began to grow, such sentiment began to wane. Realizing the benefits of multi-lingual/bilingual aptitudes presenting a greater advantage to job seekers and workers looking for professional advancement, parents and students alike began welcoming the idea of programs that could promote bilingual/multilingual education. Much so that the current proposition (Prop 58) won by a 72% margin reflecting a paradigm shift on the topic of bilingualism. Chief among the proponents of Prop 58 is Read Conmigo, a “parent-focused bilingual literacy program that encourages Hispanic parents to read to their children at home through the distribution of free English-Spanish children’s books.” Founded in 2011 and sponsored by Infinity Auto Insurance, Read Conmigo has been actively promoting bilingual literacy passing out over a million books and working with a number of school districts and teachers in the Hispanic community. They’ve raised awareness on the benefits of bilingualism holding events and speaking publically to parents and school administrators. Recently, they held an event at the La Merced Elementary School in Montebello where they debuted their first documentary, “Read Conmigo: A Journey to Bilingual America,” and they held a public forum to answer parents’ questions about their program and clarify any previously held misconceptions or concerns on it. The event itself was organized in conjunction with the Montebello Unified School District who invited over 250 parents, students, and teachers to attend. Montebello USD Interim Superintendent, Anthony Martinez, PhD, attended and spoke on the event and emphasized the benefits of the literacy program. Other speakers were present to answer questions after the presentation of the short film. Among them was the MUSD Dual Language Immersion Program faculty, Lil’ Libros founders, Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stien, Bilingual Educators of the Year, Mayra Salguero and Alicia Ramos, and the Read Conmigo Multicultural Manager, Fabi Harb. Tables were setup...

Lila Downs Protest Anthem “The Demagogue”

Posted by on 8:18 am in Art & Design, Featured, Music | 0 comments

Lila Downs Protest Anthem “The Demagogue”

Mexican American star Lila Downs released a new bilingual protest song titled “The Demagogue.” The song was premiered in a live setting last Saturday at Univision’s “Rise Up As One” concert on the U.S./Mexico border. “We do make a difference in the U.S. and we shouldn’t be afraid to speak our truth,” Lila says. “It’s the only way to demand our dignity as human beings.” Lila recently expressed her concerns on such programs as BBC’s “Newsnight” and “Al Punto” with Jorge Ramos. “The Demagogue” is the next step on that path. The song recalls the 1960s folk spirit of artists like Bob Dylan and Joan Baez while expressing her concern with the current U.S. elections and the escalation of rhetoric by one specific candidate for the Presidency. The song is at the same time her call to action – a rally for her vast audience to express themselves by voting on November 8. It has been several busy weeks for Lila Downs. Last Friday, Lila’s tribute to Linda Ronstadt aired on PBS as part of the “GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends” concert taped at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. Lila recently performed on Telemundo’s “Latin American Music Awards” in agrand finale tribute to Juan Gabriel with Shaila Durcal and Aida Cuervos. Lila’s most recent Latin GRAMMY winning album is the 2015 release, ‘Balas y Chocolate,’ inspired by both the Day of the Dead offering/celebration and her personal dance with her partner’s possible death. While the lively sound of the album centers around danceable fusions of mostly cumbias, klezmer-like norteña, hip hop, and pop, the lyrical content spotlights her concerns over the erosion of civil rights and justice, in Mexico, escalating threats to the country’s journalists, the excess in modern life, and lost love. Lila Downs has one of the world’s most singular voices and innovative approaches to music. Born in the state of Oaxaca, Lila grew up in both Minnesota and Mexico, constantly moving between the two cultures. Throughout her storied career, she has performed in such esteemed stages as Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, the White House and the Academy...

Ingrid Hoffmann | Guava Bacon Tequeño

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is just around the corner and a special way to honor the friends and family that have passed is by celebrating.  The holiday, which is observed in Mexico, Latin America, and the United States on November 1, showcases beautiful altars with marigolds, sugar skull cookies (calaveras), candles and some of our family members’ favorite foods at the ofrenda (offering). Celebrity chef, Ingrid Hoffmann, has shared her take on tradition, and created a Guava Bacon Tequeño recipe to serve at your ofrenda for your guests to enjoy during the festivities. The easy-to-make recipe features Smithfield bacon for a salty and crispy taste, and incorporates guava for a sweet kick to balance the flavors. Guava & Bacon Tequeño Created by chef Ingrid Hoffmann Serves 8 (16 pieces) Ingredients 4 strips Smithfield Hometown Original Bacon, cut crosswise in half 4 (1 ounce) sticks mozzarella string cheese 4 ounces guava paste 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent dough sheet or 1 (12-ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls (8 rolls) Directions Cook the bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until the bacon is browned and just crisp, about five minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. While the bacon is still warm, cut each piece in half, making a total of 16 pieces. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Cut each piece of cheese in half lengthwise, then in half crosswise, making a total of 16 pieces. Cut the guava paste into 16 (1/4-inch-thick) strips, the same size as the cheese. Unroll the dough. (If using crescent roll dough, firmly press the perforations to seal.) Press to form a 13 x 10-inch rectangle. With the long side toward you, cut the dough into 16 (3/4-inch) strips. Stack together one piece of cheese, one guava strip, and one piece of Smithfield Hometown Original Bacon. Place stack at an angle on one strip of dough and roll up. Seal ends closed. Repeat with remaining cheese, guava, and Smithfield Hometown Original Bacon. Place 1-inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until puffed and golden, about 10 minutes. Serve...

The Tree of Life 2016

The 17th Annual Day Of The Dead Celebration Returns To The Hollywood Forever Cemetery On October 29th Julieta Venegas, Buyepongo, Alejandro y Maria Laura, Mitre and Mariachi Flor de Toloache To Grace Main Stage At Hollywood Forever’s “The Tree Of Life” Día De Los Muertos Celebration Fernanda Kelly & Kevin Ramirez Have Been Announced As This Year’s Main Stage Hosts For the 17th year in a row, the Hollywood Forever Cemetery announces a diverse and star-studded lineup that will surely sweep crowds off their feet on October 29th. Featuring global pop icon Julieta Venegas, Los Angeles-bred latin-funk-cumbia fusion heroes Buyepongo, acclaimed tango-inspired singer-songwriter Mitre, the charming Peruvian pop-folk duo Alejandro y Maria Laura and the amazing female mariachi group Mariachi Las Coronelas on the main stage. Hailing from Tijuana, Mexico, the internationally praised pop star got her start in the ska-punk border band Tijuana NO! when she was in high school. She has since gone on to author some of the most prolific albums in Latin pop today. Her first solo album ‘Aquí’ was released in 1997 and catapulted her onto the international stage– she has since collaborated with greats such as Gustavo Santaolalla, Aterciopelados, Cafe Tacvba, and even Nick Cave; she has won both at the Grammy and Latin Grammy Awards, released a prestigious MTV Unplugged Album, and played on some of the world’s most prestigious stages. In 2015 she released a new album ‘Algo Sucede.’ Billboard has coined Venegas as forging ‘a path between Latin Alternative and pop music.’ To boil it down, Julieta Venegas is nothing short of a legend in music, and celebrating with her in October will blow your mind. The name Buyepongo means “to cause a ruckus”— which is exactly what this band does on the dance floorsof their Los Angeles home and beyond. The band’s ‘Pan-Latin’ style blends hip hop, pop, funk, jazz, and tropical stylings into a vibrant menagerie that serves as a reflection of Los Angeles. The band released their debut album ‘Todo Mundo’ earlier this year, and have taken it around the world and onto stages with the likes of Quantic, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Antibalas, and many more. Get ready for infectious bass lines and accordion licks to get you moving! In 2009, the Peruvian duo got their start performing covers in bars on a summer abroad in the U.S. In 2011, they released their first album  “Paracaídas” which received international acclaim for its infectious and accessible indie folk. Their second album “Fiesta Para Los Muertos” featured collaborations with Susana Baca, Kevin Johansen and Javier Barría. In 2015 they received two Generarock awards for ‘Fusion’ and ‘Album of the Year’. Quickly becoming an L.A. staple, the Mexico-City born singer-songwriter frequents venues around the city and fills them with his tango-tinged alternative songs. Mitre released his debut album ‘Fugitivo’ in 2010. He’s since recorded at the prestigious Sonic Ranch studios in Texas, has toured the U.S. and Europe and has been featured on some of the country’s top radio stations. Latin Grammy nominated female band Flor de Toloache continues to win the hearts of music fans, both mainstream and traditional, through their distinct vision and enlightened interpretation oftraditional mariachi instruments. The band’s diverse ethnicities and musical backgrounds are transcending cultures and genders by forging a new path for mariachi music. Like the legendary Toloache flower, used in Mexico today as a love potion,the ladies of Flor de Toloache cast a spell over their audiences with soaring vocals and physical elegance. The largest Day of the...
