Publicado libro, Hacienda San Antonio El Puente


La historia, la realidad y la ficción se entremezclan sutilmente en esta narración que despertará el interés de los lectores apasionados por el patrimonio cultural mexicano

 

MÉXICO – (Release Date TBD) – El autor Oscar de la Fuente Buenrostro ha publicado recientemente su primera obra titulada Hacienda San Antonio El Puente, si las paredes hablaran…, una narrativa con detalles sobre el Casco de la antigua Hacienda azucarera San Antonio El Puente, su historia, sus habitantes, su esplendor y su recia construcción. Para escribir este libro, el autor se ha basado en su experiencia como restaurador del casco de esta Hacienda, el contacto que ha tenido con los vecinos del lugar y la recopilación de documentación de archivos confiables gubernamentales acerca de la historia del lugar.

 

Inspirado en las grandes obras de nuestros antepasados, tales como las iglesias o catedrales, los conventos y las propias Haciendas, inmuebles que guardan historias desde el siglo XVI o XVII, el autor ha querido retratar el modo de vida en esos maravillosos tiempos, como era el transcurrir de sus días y de manera curiosa, sus problemas que siguen siendo los de la actualidad. A un mismo tiempo, el autor describe esta propiedad con pasajes de la historia ocurridos en ella, para que el lector que ya conoce esta hermosa Hacienda la disfrute y para quien no, se anime a disfrutarla ya que ahora es un Hotel y sus puertas están abiertas a todo el mundo, con una cálida hospitalidad.

 

Estos cascos de Hacienda, eran en 1950 solamente “viejas fabricas”, sin embargo, tal como lo hacen los Europeos con sus Castillos, en México estos últimos años se ha cobrado conciencia de la importancia histórica de nuestro patrimonio Cultural, cada día más gente aprecia este legado que ha podido sobrevivir pese a las guerras, a la revolución, a la inclemencia del abandono y el deterioro propio del tiempo y que está renaciendo y siendo restaurado para deleite de todos aquellos interesados en el tema. Me gustaría que la gente se deleite con este relato, que pasen un buen momento, que den rienda suelta a su imaginación y que valoren y aprecien nuestro patrimonio cultural, así como las enseñanzas que nos ha dejado nuestra historia y para completar el circulo, que visiten esta hermosa Hacienda para que guarden un mejor sabor de boca de este libro. ~ Oscar de la Fuente Buenrostro.

 

Los hechos de la historia contada en el libro ocurren en el Casco de la antigua Hacienda Azucarera San Antonio El Puente. El protagonista principal es el Dr. Filiberto Portillo, un Doctor en Psicología que estudia fenómenos paranormales y cuyo don le permite tener visiones en lugares como estos, que guardan grandes cantidades de energías concentradas. El protagonista va descubriendo lugares de la Hacienda y a un tiempo pasajes de la historia, cosas que ocurrieron en el lugar y que gracias al don que posee, puede ver, sentir y escuchar y como resultado de ello, se percata de que la historia no siempre es como se ha enseñado.“Lo que encontró le maravilló, era exactamente como lo había visto en las imágenes de su mente”.

 

Otros personajes son algunos hacendados que fueron, cada uno en su tiempo, los dueños del lugar, algunos personajes importantes de la historia de México también desfilan por la narración, tales como Guillermo Prieto, Benito Juárez, Francisco I. Madero, Emiliano Zapata o Porfirio Diaz y también dentro de las personas con quienes interactúa el Doctor en su visita a la Hacienda convertida en hotel, aparecen hombres y mujeres de la vida real que han trabajado en este maravilloso lugar.

 

Hacienda San Antonio El Puente, si las paredes hablaran… es un libro ameno que presenta un enfoque diferente de la historia de la Hacienda y algunas verdades al respecto. Es de interés para quienes gustan de conocer y disfrutar estos bellos inmuebles históricos. Este ameno y entretenido relato posee una narrativa fácil de digerir, es una excelente oportunidad de interiorizarse más en el tema y conocer algunas particularidades y datos curiosos de este lugar y de su historia. Es interesante por los datos históricos que aporta a lo largo del relato, sucesos ocurridos en la Hacienda que han dejado su huella y cuyos testimonios se pueden visitar ya que es actualmente un Hotel y existe el libre acceso al lugar.

BRISTOL, Tenn. – During Bruton’s Big Bristol Giveaway on March 17, 10 fans in attendance at the Food City 500 will drive away with 2013 Ford Mustangs, making theirs the ultimate fan-friendly experience. The customized Mustangs will be worth a total of approximately $250,000.

“I don’t know anybody who does not want to win a new car,” said BMS general manager Jerry Caldwell. “It’s one thing to give away a single car but giving away 10 is definitely something different. It really can’t get much better than seeing a race at Bristol and winning a car. I think the fans are really going to enjoy this.”

Any fan who has purchased tickets to the Food City 500 will be entered to win a Mustang. Every ticket purchase makes the buyer eligible to win the car. Fans purchasing multiple tickets can be entered as many as 20 times, depending on the number of tickets they purchase. (For example, if six tickets are purchased, that fan receives six entries).  Fans also may enter to win by mailing an entry card to BMS; no purchase necessary.

Everyone who purchases a ticket before the Food City 500 weekend, including those who purchased before the giveaway was announced, will be automatically entered and all those that purchase at the box office will be able to register to win one of the Mustangs at special Bristol Motor Speedway/Mustang Promotion display stations.  Free on-site registration at the display stations will be available, as well.

Two finalists will be selected in advance of race week from mail-in entries. Throughout Food City 500 race weekend (March 15-17), BMS officials will draw another 48 finalists, whose names will be displayed in the BMS/Mustang Display Setup.

¿Es Ud. víctima de un Notario Fraudulento?


Ya centenares de jóvenes en los Estados Unidos han solicitado la deportación diferida bajo el nuevo Proceso de Acción Diferida para Jóvenes (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés). Este nuevo año promete ver una nueva oleada de solicitantes que puedan encontrarse vulnerables ante las estafas de individuos inescrupulosos que se hacen llamar “consultores de inmigración”, y son mejor conocidos como notarios. 

Aunque muchos notarios se hagan pasar por abogados, en realidad no lo son. En términos generales, los consultores de inmigración son representantes que no son abogados y que prestan ayuda de índole no jurídica limitada a los inmigrantes, según indica la Red Católica de Inmigración Legal (CLINIC, por sus siglas en inglés).  Dichos consultores, por ejemplo, pueden traducir materiales de solicitud, resguardar documentos de referencia y preparar u organizar fotografías, huellas dactilares y exámenes médicos. Sin embargo, ellos no están autorizados para proporcionar asesoría o servicios legales, y no es necesario que tengan una formación exclusiva sobre la ley de inmigración. Asesoramiento legal generalmente ocurre cuando una persona estudia los hechos en un caso y ofrece consejos basados en esos hechos; los servicios legales pueden incluir la preparación de formularios, informes, solicitudes y otros documentos. 

El Colegio de Abogados de Estados Unidos (American Bar Association, ABA por sus siglas en inglés) mira con preocupación que algunos individuos quieran utilizar este proceso para aprovecharse de aquellos jóvenes que se sientan abrumados por los requisitos y trámites de solicitud, indicó la presidenta del ABA, Laurel Bellows. El proceso de Acción Diferida permite que aquellas personas sin estatus migratorio legal en el país, que llegaron al país antes de los 16 años de edad y tenían menos de 31 años de edad antes del 15 de junio de 2012, puedan aplicar a permanecer en los Estados Unidos por  un período de dos años, sujeto a renovación. 

Aquellos jóvenes que crean necesitar ayuda para determinar su elegibilidad para el proceso de Acción Diferida o para completar su solicitud debería “contactar a proveedores de asistencia legal en su localidad, a un abogado de inmigración calificado o a un representante acreditado para recibir asistencia”, dijo Bellows. “Los solicitantes también pueden llamar a la oficina de Ciudadanía y Servicios de Inmigración de Estados Unidos (USCIS, por sus siglas en inglés) al 1-800-375-5283 o visitar su página en internet para obtener más información”. 

Adicionalmente, CLINIC aconseja que los inmigrantes deben de protegerse de las estafas, en general, tomando dos pasos importantes. En primer lugar, deben educarse. Antes de decidirse a obtener ayuda con asuntos de inmigración y antes de pagar dinero, los inmigrantes deben determinar qué tipo de ayuda necesitan y quién debería proporcionar esa asistencia. Por ejemplo, ¿necesitas asesoramiento y servicios legales o necesitas ayuda para traducir un documento? 

En segundo lugar, si solo necesitan servicios que no requieran asesoramiento legal, se debe elegir cuidadosamente a quién contratarán para prestar esos servicios. Si contratan a un consultor, deberán asegurarse de que esa persona solo realice servicios básicos y de índole no jurídicos. 

Si a pesar de haber seguido estos consejos, usted o alguien que usted conoce ha sido víctima del fraude notarial, ¿Qué debes hacer? Hay varias acciones que se pueden tomar. La Comisión de Inmigración del ABA aconseja lo siguiente:

  • Comuníquese con la Comisión de Inmigración del ABA para obtener ayuda al 202-442-3363. El ABA no garantiza la colocación de un caso para su representación legal, pero hará todo lo posible para vincular a un individuo que tenga una demanda viable con un abogado en su localidad.
  • Envíe su queja — anónimamente, si así lo desea —  a la Comisión Federal de Comercio (FTC, por sus siglas en inglés), la agencia nacional de protección del consumidor. La FTC reúne quejas acerca de compañías, las prácticas comerciales, y el robo de identidad bajo la ley del  FTC y otras leyes que administra y hace cumplir. La presentación de quejas puede ayudar a detectar patrones de irregularidades y dar lugar a investigaciones y enjuiciamientos. La FTC ingresa todas las quejas que recibe a una base de datos electrónica segura llamada Centinela del Consumidor que se encuentra a disposición de cientos de agencias de cumplimiento de las leyes civiles y penales en los Estados Unidos y en el extranjero. La FTC no resuelve los problemas individuales de los consumidores. Para reportar una queja ante la FTC en español, haga clic aquí. La Comisión y otras organizaciones sin fines de lucro también pueden ayudarle a presentar una queja ante la FTC.
  • Reporte y notifique cualquier situación de fraude en su estado. La Asociación Americana de Abogados de Inmigración (AILA, por sus siglas en inglés) también mantiene una lista de las agencias estatales de protección al consumidor que pueden ser encontradas en la siguiente dirección en internet: http://www.stopnotariofraud.org/get-help-es.php.  
  • Presente una queja contra algún notario ante el colegio de abogados de su localidad o estado, aunque no todos los colegios de abogados estatales tomarán medidas contra un notario. Una lista de los colegios de abogados por estado puede ser encontrado haciendo clic aquí.
  • Presente una queja contra un abogado o representante acreditado ante el Departamento de Justicia de Estados Unidos. La Oficina Ejecutiva de Revisión de Casos de Inmigración (EOIR, por sus siglas en inglés) proporciona información sobre cómo presentar una quejacontra un abogado de inmigración o contra un representante acreditado por la Junta de Apelaciones de Inmigración.
  • Póngase en contacto con una organización de servicios de asesoramiento legal sobre leyes de inmigración. Para obtener una lista de proveedores de servicios legales sobre asuntos de inmigración en su estado, que sean gratuitos o de bajo costo, visite las siguientes páginas en internet: Proveedores de Servicios Legales Gratuitos de EOIR y el Directorio Nacional de Servicios Legales de Inmigración de la Red de Defensores de Inmigración. Si usted tiene la habilidad de pagar un abogado, La Asociación Americana de Abogados de Inmigración cuenta con un Servicio de Referencia de Abogados de Inmigración. Para obtener más información, visite AILA.org.

TDEC Launches Tennessee State Parks Recreation “Finder” Portal


ImageNew External-Facing GIS Application Offers Unique Mapping Components and Interactive Design

 NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation announced today the launch of its new Geographic Information System (GIS)-based site that provides up-to-date interactive maps and information about recreational opportunities at Tennessee State Parks and natural areas. Plans also are under way to incorporate GIS information about state historical and archaeological sites in the future. 

 

The new application offers an easily navigable portal to access a map of TDEC-managed lands.  This GIS-based internet mapping system has been integrated into TDEC’s existing infrastructure to provide a wealth of geospatial information, including core GIS tools, templates and applications. These new interactive maps and layers also are designed to help TDEC improve operations and communicate more effectively with the public, while saving both time and money.

 

“Created internally by TDEC employees, today’s launch is the result of a collaborative effort across many levels of the department,” said TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau.  “Over the past several years, staff has transitioned existing data into an Oracle database – moving away from traditional data storage.  Last year, we moved forward with plans to serve a public-facing GIS application within the department, giving staff the ability to manage the data and the actual site both effectively and cost-efficiently with no additional costs to the department.” 

 

Links to the new interactive portal can be found on Tennessee State Parks’ website at www.tnstateparks.com/findapark or via the Tennessee Natural Areas’ website at www.tn.gov/environment/na/. Features of the new GIS application include:

 

  • Customized Icons – Information about state parks and natural areas are just a click away, using individual icons.  Basic information about a particular area includes an address, with more in-depth details such as hiking trails, accommodations and local amenities offered.  The customized icons also provide a link to an individual park or natural area website.
  • Search Function – The search function allows the public to easily access recreational areas across the state within 20 miles of a particular address and to receive directions to those particular sites. The search function also allows the user to search by the name of a particular park, natural area or site or by a specific activity – from fishing to kayaking to camping. 

 

“With a successful collection of data, staff collaboration and very little infrastructure investment, we have been able to quickly move forward,” added Martineau.  “In addition to adding state historical or archaeological sites, we are beginning to look at an expansion of the application for TDEC’s Bureau of Environment, to include permitted site data for various facilities across the state and other environmental interests, which will offer the public at large access to important information quicker and easier.” 

 

With more than 2,900 employees working across the state, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation is a diverse and dynamic department, serving the state by (1) safeguarding the health and safety of Tennessee citizens from environmental hazards; (2) protecting and improving the quality of Tennessee’s land, air and water; and (3) managing Tennessee’s 54 state parks, 82 natural areas and a variety of historical or archaeological sites.  For more information about the department, please visit www.tn.gov/environment.

Messi Recibe el Balón de Oro 2012


Lionel Messi ya se encuentra inalcanzable, como un
Dios, en la historia del futbol, instalado de por vida en el
paraíso al conquistar por cuarta vez consecutiva el Balón de
Oro, premio que entrega la FIFA
al mejor futbolista del año.
Lo hizo al superar en la votación final al portugués Cristiano Ronaldo y al español Andrés
Iniesta, y deja atrás a Marco van
Basten, Johan Cruyff y Michel
Platini, otros jugadores que
tenían tres galardones.
Humilde ante todo, Messi
se sinceró: “No creo que haya
sido mi mejor año”, dijo en rueda de prensa previa a la concesión del galardón, en Zurich.
“Hubo otros años mejores, en
los que conseguimos muchas
más cosas” , afirmó.
Para quedarse con el premio,
Messi protagonizó un periodo
espectacular, con un récord de
goles en un año natural (91).
Argumentó que para él lo
importante son los títulos
colectivos, no los individuales, por lo que a pesar de que en
2012 se convirtió en el máximo
goleador de partidos oficiales de
la historia del club azulgrana;
batió el récord de tantos anotados en una temporada de la Liga
de los Campeones (14) ; y realizó el mayor número de goles
en un año natural (91) , no está
satisfecho.
En la gala también se entregaron otros premios.
Uno de ellos es el de mejor
entrenador del año en futbol
masculino, que quedó en manos
del seleccionador de España,
Vicente Del Bosque, dejando atrás al portugués del Real
Madrid, Jose Mourinho, y el ex
del Barcelona, el español Josep
Guardiola, quienes lo ganaron
en 2010 y 2011.

También se dio a conocer
al vencedor del IV Premio
Puskas al mejor gol del año,
el eslovaco Miroslav Stoch,
que dejó atrás al colombiano
Radamel Falcao y al brasileño
Neymar -ganador en 2011-.
El sindicato de futbolistas FIFPro también coronó a
su once ideal de 2012: España,
con seis jugadores, fue el país
más representado, mientras
que en clubes, Barcelona y Real
Madrid, con cinco cada uno, casi
coparon el equipo.
En el arco de ese once ideal
fue elegido de nuevo el capitán
de la Roja y del Real Madrid,
Iker Casillas, acompañado en
defensa por dos brasileños Dani
Alves y Marcelo, y por la pareja
de centrales Sergio Ramos-Gerard Piqué.
En el centro del campo fueron seleccionados los ‘cerebros’
de la cantera del Barça y Espa-

ña, Xavi Hernández y Andrés
Iniesta, además del organizador
del Real Madrid Xabi Alonso,
mientras que en ataque están el
argentino Lionel Messi, el portugués Cristiano Ronaldo y el
colombiano Falcao.
Pero Messi vive en otro mundo y explota el oficio del goleador a las mil maravillas sin ser
un “9” puro.
Messi recibe elogios de cualquier rincón del planeta porque
nadie se atreve a cuestionar
semejante talento.
A partir de su rivalidad con
Cristiano Ronaldo, más mediá-
tica que personal, ha ido creciendo la figura de este futbolista silencioso.
El futbol aplaude al “10” del
Barcelona y se pregunta hasta
cuándo prolongará su legado.
Hoy por hoy, es el mejor jugador del planeta. ¡Es un futbolista de oro!

MAYOR ROGERO NAMES PUBLIC FACILITIES DIRECTOR


Image

KNOXVILLE Mayor Madeline Rogero today announced the hiring of Greg Mackay as Director of Public Assembly Facilities. Mackay, former Administrator of the Knox County Election Commission and a former real estate broker, will manage operations at Chilhowee Park and the Civic Auditorium and Coliseum. He succeeds Bob Polk, who retired from the position in November.

 “Greg’s strong track record as an administrator and innovator, and his background in real estate, will serve the City well in the operation of these valuable public properties,” Mayor Rogero said. “He is an effective manager and a skilled communicator who has experience working with a diverse group of employees and with the public. He will bring a fresh perspective as we think about the future of our public facilities.”

 Mackay is a graduate of the Webb School of Knoxville and earned a Bachelor of Arts in political science at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. He worked for 11 years as a Realtor, including a stint as managing broker for Heath Shuler Real Estate. He and his wife live with their daughter in the Kingston Hills neighborhood.

 Mackay served as a Knox County Election Commissioner from 1990-98, helping to introduce and implement early voting. He was Election Commission Administrator from 2003 until 2011, running the Election Commission office and overseeing dozens of elections. Mackay has also served as an international elections observer in countries including Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Albania and Macedonia.

 As Director of Public Facilities, he will oversee staff and operations at Chilhowee Park and the Civic Auditorium and Coliseum. The two facilities host more than 100 events a year, including the Tennessee Valley Fair at Chilhowee Park, performances by the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra at the Civic Auditorium, and the home games of the Knoxville Ice Bears hockey team at the Coliseum.

 “Chilhowee Park and the Auditorium and Coliseum are great public assets that play a vital role in Knoxville’s civic life,” Mackay said. “I am excited about working with the dedicated staff at these facilities to maintain that role and build on it for the future.”
