David Arquette Apologizes for Saying Latinas Are "Just Nuts"
By Mariela Rosario | 07/20/2009 - 15:00

David Arquette issued an apology for the racist remarks he spouted on Fox and Friends last week. In case you missed it, the "actor" first claimed that he was an expert on Latinos because he was born and raised in Los Angeles, and then said that while some Latina women have good judgment, others are "just nuts" in reference to Sonia Sotomayor's Supreme Court Nomination.

Sonia Sotomayor Schools Senators (and Us)
By Mariela Rosario | 07/17/2009 - 12:45

As I said before, I still don't feel as though I've learned many new things about Sonia Sotomayor this week, even though her Senate confirmation hearings just ended. I have, however, learned more about the law and our constitution and that is all thanks to Sotomayor's measured, thoughtful and yes, "wise" responses to the questions posed by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

David Arquette: "Some Latinas Are Just Nuts"
By Mariela Rosario | 07/16/2009 - 13:50

What does an ignorant racist look like? Apparently, just like David Arquette. He joined the hosts of "Fox & Friends" yesterday to talk about Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the Supreme Court, and this is what he had to say: "I think Latina women are, I mean, it depends on the woman, but I think they are very ... They have great judgment, but there are some that are just nuts. I'm just saying." And how did he become an expert in all things Latina? Because he lives in L.A., duh. Get it? 'Cause there are a bunch of Mexicans there.

Enduring the Sotomayor Hearings
By Mariela Rosario | 07/14/2009 - 16:40

It has been very difficult to sit through today's questioning of Sonia Sotomayor without wanting to reach through the screen and shake one or two of these distinguished senators. Between the embarrassing fawning of the Democrats and the broken record recitation of her "wise Latina" comment by the Republicans, I can't say that I have learned much more about Judge Sonia Sotomayor than I knew before the hearing started.

Staff Health Challenge: On-the-Go Meal For an On-the-Go Girl
By Angie Romero | 05/18/2009 - 15:15

I’m not much of a cook, so sometimes I may slack when it comes to making complete meals. I usually only do that on the weekends, when I have time to relax (I hate to rush in the kitchen—if I cook, it’s more of a therapeutic thing). So, taking nutritionist Christina Persaud’s advice, I’m trying to stay in my range of 1,200 calories a day. So I found the perfect solution for an on-the-go girl like me: the Luna bar. My fave used to be the Lemon Zest flavor, but now I have a new one: the Dulce de Leche, of course!

By Angie Romero | 05/11/2009 - 14:00

I don’t know about you, but I get tired of running on a treadmill or doing the elliptical machine rather quickly. And I've already told you my sentiments on gyms, so it’s no surprise that whenever I can escape them and run outdoors, I do so.
