Congresista Cooper comenta la visita de Obama a Nashville

Declaración del Rep. Cooper sobre la visita del presidente a Nashville

NASHVILLE – El congresista demócrata Jim Cooper ( TN- 5 ) emitió la siguiente declaración sobre la visita del Presidente Obama a esta ciudad :
” El Senado de Estados Unidos – incluyendo senadores Corker y Alexander – votaron abrumadoramente para hacer lo que el Presidente expuso hoy. Los representantes republicanos se han negado a considerar el proyecto de ley del Senado, pero tienen tres días más para permitir un voto aprobatorio o desaprobatorio, donde pasaría con una gran mayoría. Nuestra comunidad – incluyendo la Cámara de Comercio del Area de Nashville, la Universidad Lipscomb, la Iglesia Católica, la Convención Bautista del Sur y fundaciones familiares locales de caridad – apoya el objetivo de la integración de los inmigrantes en la comunidad en general Somos un modelo para el país.”

Cooper Statement on President’s Visit to Nashville

NASHVILLE – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-5) today issued the following statement:
“The U.S. Senate – including Senators Corker and Alexander – voted overwhelmingly to do what the President outlined today. House Republicans have refused to consider the Senate bill, but they have three more days to allow an up or down vote where it would pass with a large majority. Our community – including the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, Lipscomb University, the Catholic Church, the Southern Baptist Convention and local charitable family foundations – supports the goal of integrating immigrants into the wider community. We are a model for the country.”

Super Student Saturdays! at Rose Center – Morristown

Disney Saturday

Super Student Saturdays! Each month, the doors of Rose Center will host a day full of programs and workshops in various areas of the arts for students of all ages.

November will ring in one very special set of workshops entitled Crazy About Walt, a Disney-themed adventure into the arts! Students in the 3rd grade through the 8th grade are invited to explore the arts with their favorite Disney princesses, rodents, villains, wizards, pirates, nannies, monsters, and more!

During this fast paced day, students will participate in Disney games, watch some of their favorite Disney classics, and take four workshops taught by young and energetic instructors who are all top-notch Disney nerds!

Here’s a look at the workshops your student will participate in:

Art Class: Walt loved fairy tales, but there are a handful of Grimm tales that haven’t been Disney-fied! Take a ride in Walt Disney’s shoes as YOU get to design your very own Disney characters and world!
Theatre Class: Take a dive into the hilarious world of Disney parodies! Imagine a Mary Poppins that doesn’t act all sunshine and roses? A Pinocchio that is prone to rap music? Learn humorous techniques and theatre basics in this fun and energetic class!
Vocal Class: Perform your favorites from Disney with a slight twist: pick songs sung by the opposite gender! Learn various excercises on how to voice and portray the characters you have always loved. Learn tips and tricks for vocal performance!
Dance Class: Just Let It Go! Cover a wide variety of dance styles in this high energy choreographed piece while belting out one of the most epic Disney songs! A special guest might be making an appearance!

Colaboración de Mercedes Strollo, Hispanic Outreach Coordinator en Image.– Por favor tener cuidado de vendedores de carros usados que tienen letreros diciendo: “Buy Here, Pay Here” (Comprar Aquí, Pagar Aquí). Una compañía de carros usados en NC fueron enjuiciados por ofrecer ofertas desleales y términos predatorios, lo cual violan la Ley de Prácticas Comerciales Desleales y Engañosas (Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act). Aparte de estas violaciones también están siendo enjuiciados por discriminar hacia africanos-americanos. Estas compañías ofrecían precios inflados con interés bien altos y depósitos grandes sin importarle si el cliente podría hacer sus pagos mensuales. Estas prácticas resultaron en fallas de cumplimiento por parte del cliente haciendo que haya bastantes reposesiones de autos, también fallaron en dar notificación de reposesión adecuada. Llegaron a quitar autos de clientes que estaban puntuales con sus contratos y no devolvían reembolsos a tiempo. No devolvían artículos personales de los clientes en vehículos re-poseídos e instalaban mecánica global a escondidas en los autos para facilitar la reposesión de autos. Recuerden que estos malos comerciantes de autos usados quieren que usted falle de pagar para quedarse no solo con su depósito, si no ganar más con la reventa de su carro y la mayoría de veces usted se queda adeudándole por vida del contrato que usted FIRMO. Si saben de esta clase de vendedores repórtenlo a la Federal Trade Commission, o llame al 877-382-4357, pídalo en español (la FTC no le importa su estatus inmigratorio).
