UNITY Board Adopts New Revenue Sharing Plan By Onica N. Makwakwa, UNITY Journalists of Color, Inc.

MCLEAN, Virginia -- UNITY Journalists of Color, Inc., has established a new revenue-sharing plan for our 2012 convention, and is committed to working on a new strategic plan to make our alliance stronger, while also ensuring the sustainability o f t h e organization's important mission. UNITY is a strategic alliance advocating news coverage about people of color, and aggressively challenging its organizations at all levels to reflect the nation's diversity. It represents more than 8,000 journalists of color. In addition to planning the largest regular gathering of journalists in the nation, UNITY develops programs and advocacy initiatives that promote its mission. The new revenue-sharing plan creates the potential for more revenue for each alliance partner: the Asian American Journalists Association; National Association of Black Journalists; National Association of Hispanic Journalists; and Native American Journalists Association. It also provides revenue to fund UNITY at a sustainable, disciplined level. "The alliance partners have been working hard on a new financial arrangement that would be fair to all. They've considered various proposals and counterproposals. There's no doubt that this board has paid close attention and has given this serious deliberation," UNITY President Joanna Hernandez

said. "As of now, UNITY's convention revenue has been capped at $750,000, with any excess that would have gone to UNITY to be divided proportionately among the alliance partners. With some belt-tightening, it allows UNITY to remain active between convention years and continue its core mission of advocating for a diverse news workforce and for fair coverage of communities of color." U N I T Y recognizes that the changing media environment calls for a new strategic plan and is committed to adopting a plan by the fall. UNITY is committed to evolving with our alliance partners and the industry. "I've been president for just three months, but I recognize the need for any 20-yearold organization to examine itself," Hernandez said. "A new strategic plan is long overdue. I am committed to change and fully support the alliance partners' efforts as we move forward." More than ever, our four alliance partners need one another. The economic recovery is not complete, and our mission of diversity in news coverage and staffing has never been more important, as evidenced by the nation's rapid demographic changes that were reported in the 2010 U.S. Census. The UNITY alliance partners of AAJA, NABJ, NAHJ and NAJA are excited to work together to be even more dynamic, and we look forward to a successful UNITY 2012 convention Aug. 1-4, 2012, in Las Vegas.

Walmart eliminated over 80 percent of its California waste that would have gone to landfills By JosĂŠVilla, Senior Editor

BENTONVILLE, Arkansas -Walmart reported today that it has eliminated more than 80 percent of the waste that would go to landfills from its operations in California. The company's comprehensive waste reduction program that produced these results is now being implemented across its 4,400 stores, Sam's Club locations and distribution centers in the U.S., moving it closer to its global goal of creating zero waste. Achieving a similar 80 percent reduction in its landfill waste across the country would help it prevent more than 11.8 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions a n n u a l l y. This is equal to taking more than 2 million cars off the road for a year. "We are proud of the progress we are making toward our zero waste goal, but realize we still have more work to do," said Bill Simon, president and CEO of Walmart U.S. "We are committed to actively finding and developing solutions that are both good for the environment and good for business." "We do everything with the customer in mind. We are committed to buying, operating and selling for less, and our

waste program is a great example of developing new ideas that help us save our customers money," continued Simon. "Through this program we are able to provide the raw materials needed to make new products, recycle millions of pounds of commodities and reduce the environmental impact of landfills." Beginning in 2009, Walmart created a nationwide infrastructure of landfill alternatives that could open new opportunities for municipalities, and other businesses, to reduce the amount

of solid waste they send to landfills. The Walmart Zero Waste Program has three main components: -- Recycling cardboard, paper, aluminum, plastic bags, and roughly 30 other items, through the super sandwich bale (SSB) program. Items not eligible for the SSB, including wood pallets, polystyrene plastic and apparel, are sent to Walmart's return centers for reuse or recycling. -- Donating healthy, nutritious food

to food banks around the country. In 2010, Walmart donated 256 million pounds of food to

hunger relief organizations – the equivalent of 197 million meals. -- Creating animal feed, energy or compost from expired food, and other organic products following the EPA's food waste hierarchy. "Walmart is to be commended for making real progress in minimizing the

environmental impact of waste from its stores," said Karen Luken, director of the Clinton Climate Initiative's (CCI) Waste Program. "One of the key aims for CCI's Waste Program is to reduce methane emissions from landfills, and Walmart's initiative sends a clear message to other businesses that this is one source of emissions that can and should be addressed now." Walmart b e g a n implementing and consistently tracking its new and existing waste reduction efforts in California in 2009. A thirdparty review has shown Walmart uses an appropriate process to establish its waste reduction data. The nationwide program, based on the California model, will include an ongoing review to monitor the program's success.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Census Bureau just released the second in a series of 2010 Census briefs, “Overview of Race and Hispanic Origin: 2010”, which looks at our nation's changing racial and ethnic diversity and provides a snapshot of the racial and Hispanic origin composition of the U.S. The examination of racial and ethnic group distributions nationally shows that, while the “non-Hispanic white alone” population is still numerically and proportionally the largest major race and ethnic group in the U.S., it is also growing at the slowest rate. Conversely, the Hispanic and Asian populations have grown considerably, in part because of relatively higher levels of immigration. More than half of the growth in the total U.S. population between 2000 and 2010 was due to the increase in the Hispanic population.

It's Easy Being Green: Does Daylight Saving Time Work? The United States passed a law in 1918 that both established time zones WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Sunday, and instituted a DST similar to what we March 18, most Americans woke up a have now. When the war concluded, the little bit groggier. Thanks to daylight law proved unpopular enough to coax saving time, or DST, clocks in most parts President Woodrow Wilson into vetoing of the United States were set one hour its renewal. ahead—robbing millions of precious President Franklin Delano Roosevelt sleep, but rewarding them with extra later reinstated a year-round DST during daylight in return. World War II to curb wartime energy The interval for DST has been longer consumption. But that law expired at the in the past four years. That’s because the end of the war, as well. Energy Policy Act of 2005 mandated that Finally, in 1966, a more standardized DST be extended by one month. It used DST was implemented that coincided to last from the first Sunday in April to with the Universal Time Act. The law the last Sunday in October, but now lasts was adopted throughout the country in from the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in November. Why the switch? Or, more to the point, why have DST at all? The answer lies in the desire to conserve energy. DST proponents argue that waking up earlier to take advantage of the increased daylight reduces the need for artificial forms of lighting—and they have been making this argument for literally hundreds of years. Ben Franklin was one of the first to propose something along fits and starts, but the central idea was the lines of DST. The Founding Father the same: reduce energy by capitalizing argued in a satirical piece, written on the available natural light. anonymously for the Journal of Paris, The logic behind DST is rather that the government should tax window intuitive.

evidence of a decrease in energy consumption. • A 1983 German study determined that energy savings could be much more than estimated in the United States. By running a simulation, the Germans determined that DST was responsible for a 1.8 percent decrease in energy consumption. • But another European study conducted in 1999 cut that estimate down to only half of a percentage point. University of California at Santa Barbara professor Matthew Kotchen and grad student Laura Grant had a unique opportunity to conduct a study that would more directly test the cause and effect of DST on energy consumption. Only 15 of Indiana’s 92 counties observed DST as of 2006. The entire state adopted the new DST after the aforementioned 2005 law took effect in 2007. Kotchen and Grant found that DST in fact increased energy consumption in the state by testing the difference in energy consumption between the two years (adjusting for variables such as temperature). The authors found that artificial light use decreased, but those savings were more than offset by the increased usage of cooling systems, which residents needed to combat the hot Indiana summers. Whether or not DST reduces our energy usage remains unclear. The studies that have demonstrated an impact in either direction show that impact to be marginal. It is possible that DST could reduce our energy consumption, but the law alone is not enough, as the Indiana study demonstrates. We need to keep in mind the law’s intent and augment our own behavior accordingly. Realizing the potential of daylight saving time may in fact be possible by increasing awareness of ways to reduce our energy usage.

I graduated with bachelors in marketing and minored in economics.” What was living in Oswego like for him? He said: “I chose to go to SUNYOswego to get away from the life I saw around me. So I went up there with an open mind and open arms. I knew life was going to be very different, but I knew if I wanted my life to be different, the change had to start with me. Eating nonDominican food was a huge adjustment. A Dominican friend and I cook our own Latin food, because it’s part of our culture and we missed it.” He continued: “Diversity was new to me. Everybody I knew in the city was Dominican or Puerto Rican, but all our teachers were white. That was my view of the world growing up. All authority figures were white, and then there were the rest of us. So leaving the big city, and going to a small town community that was 95% white, was a huge cultural shock for me. However, it was the right thing to do and greatly expanded my view of the world.” Fernández graduated from SUNY – Oswego in 1999. He went back to the city and tried to break into the advertising

industry, but he found it very difficult. A fellow Oswego graduate moved to D.C. to live with family and encouraged me to interview there. I hesitated, but reluctantly applied for several positions and started getting interview requests. So I accepted a position with a D.C. nonprofit for two years, and 10 years later, I’m still living here.” While at that non-profit, he enrolled in the George Washington University Executive MBA program and graduated, while holding a full-time job. A couple of weeks after graduation, he got a call from a recruiter. A few weeks after that, he accepted a position at GuideStar, where, ironically, he wound up working with another SUNY-Oswego classmate. One thing I found particularly gratifying about his story is how proud his parents are of him. He said when his dad came to visit his office, he said: “All the years I was cleaning offices like this, I dreamed that one day my kids would be working in offices like these. You’ve made me very proud.” There are so many individuals in our Hispanic community – and others – that can relate to his dad’s joy.

develop a clean energy economy," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "Their innovative projects will help raise public awareness about energy efficiency, help save consumers money and reduce carbon pollution." The selected teams and their projects represent a diverse range of design approaches, building technologies, and geographic locations, climates and regions including urban, suburban and rural settings. They also aim to reach a broad range of target housing markets, including low-income, disaster relief, retirement, and more. A panel of engineers, scientists, and experts from DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory evaluated applications for the 2011 competition. Teams were required to meet specific criteria to demonstrate their viability, including their ability to: design and build an innovative, entirely solar-powered house; raise additional funds, to support the project through a well-integrated curriculum; and assemble a team necessary to carry the project through to completion. In addition, a panel of professionals from American Institute of Architects, National Association of Home Builders, the U.S. Green Building Council, building industry media, and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers evaluated conceptual designs from prospective teams. The results of their evaluations, combined with scores based on the four criteria listed above, determined the 2011 Solar Decathlon teams. Each team has to design and build a solar-powered house. The houses will be setup on the National Mall this fall, and

will be judged there, by a panel of experts according to criteria within 10 contest categories. The houses will be open to the public for tours. The Solar Decathlon supports interdisciplinary education

These dates are the original event dates and enable teams to begin assembling their houses at 11 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13. “Now that we’ve confirmed the dates, people can start making plans to come to Solar Decathlon 2011,” said Richard King, Solar Decathlon director. “We plan to make this event bigger and better than ever, so please keep checking the Web site for updated details as we draw closer to the event.” We spoke to one of the electrical engineering students from Team Hawaii. Tiffany Iiga summarized the importance of the project’s goal. Iiga said “Team Hawaii is focusing on the sustainability facets in each segment of the project. This means incorporating and using Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) standards in architecture, engineering, and construction to monitor power consumption that will enable us to optimize efficiency. We are even incorporating aquaponic system, which is an integrated aquaculture – growing fish, and hydroponic – growing soilless plants, system that mutually benefits both environments, this way the homeowner will be able to grow their own food.” Team Hawaii is finalizing its design – that can be seen at www.solar.hawaii. edu/ -- and is ready to construct the home, but they need help.

Puerto Rico takes top high school, college division awards in NASA’s Moonbuggy competition By NASA News Media Office

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- NASA has announced the winners of the 18th annual NASA Great Moonbuggy Race -- and it's Puerto Rico's year. Teams representing Teodoro Aguilar Mora Vocational High School of Yabucoa, Puerto Rico, snared the top two berths in the high school division; and, for the second straight year, the University of Puerto Rico in Humacao held off all comers to win the college division. The NASA competition challenges students around the world to build and race lightweight, human-powered buggies -- demonstrating the same innovation and can-do spirit that put the first Apollo-era lunar rover on the moon four decades ago. More than 70 teams from 22 states, Puerto Rico, Canada, Germany, India and Russia took part in the race, which encourages young people to reach for new heights in science, technology, engineering and math, and pursue careers in technical fields that will benefit NASA, the nation and all humankind. Held April 1-2 at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, the event is organized by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center there. It challenges students to tackle many of the same engineering challenges dealt with by Apollo-era lunar rover developers at the Marshall Center in the late 1960s. This year's event celebrated the 40th anniversary of that feat, which culminated in the first use of a crewed lunar rover in July 1971. The winning teams posted the fastest combined vehicle assembly and race times in their divisions and received the fewest on-course penalties. Teodoro Aguilar Mora Vocational High School first raced in the event in 2010, earning course times that put their twin buggies in a respectable, but trophy-less 7th and 9th place among all high school teams. This year, Team II posted a final time of 3 minutes 18 seconds -- just one second over the all-time record on the modern Great

'26 Seconds' campaign to engage youth at risk of dropping out of school By José Villa, Senior Editor

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Every 26 seconds in America, a student drops out of high school. Last month State Farm announced the launch of a campaign to address this startling statistic and engage those who can most directly affect change – young people themselves. The campaign titled "26 Seconds," will use interests – like music, sports and video – to engage youth. It will provide an online venue for youth to express feelings on the issue and creatively share thoughts and talents – encouraging them and their peers to make graduation a priority so they become more than a statistic. The program's tagline "BMOR" underscores this call to action. Additionally, the State Farm Companies Foundation announced a scholarship program. Twenty-six scholarships will go to students who are not traditionally eligible for many scholarship programs. Students will be able to use the two-year scholarship totaling $5,000, to help fund two- or four-year college or university, technical, or vocational school attendance. Scholarship program information and eligibility guidelines will soon be

How Students Can Find the Real Price of College By José Villa, Senior Editor

CHICAGO, Illinois -- eduLaunchpad.com announces the addition of Net Price Calculation to its ground-breaking college search engine. Net Price Calculation is a new standard for advertised college costs mandated for each college and university by the Department of Education. It allows students to see what the real likely cost of any college will be to them, rather than just relying on the sticker price which can be thousands of dollars more than the student actually pays. Although the deadline by the government i s O c t o b e r 2 0 11 f o r implementation, eduLaunchpad. com has worked diligently to get their net price calculator working now. “eduLaunchpad is the first college search engine which allows students and parents to actually see and compare thousands of colleges’ net prices side by side, rather than having

information like financial aid calculations, GPA, and ACT or SAT scores; and combine it with college cost of attendance and financial aid history in order to provide students with an estimate of what a specific school would actually cost out of their own pocket. “It’s like the difference between knowing the sticker price of a car; and knowing what your costs will be after rebates, dealer discounts, and your used car’s trade-in value,” says Mr. Anderson. A student’s performance in high school and their financial resources have a very significant impact on what student’s will actually pay at a college. user-friendly manner possible.” For instance: a low-income says Mr. Woodard.

Most low-income students look at the high price of college and give up on any possibility of affording a college education. Net price calculators like the one at eduLaunchpad. com are a big step forward in showing students a more accurate real price, and may be a key to establishing a vision for higher education for lowincome and disadvantaged students. eduLaunchpad.com is the next generation of college search and preparation on the internet. Scott Anderson has over a decade of experience working directly with students and parents in helping them prepare financially for college and selecting the right mix of colleges for application.

Antonio Corral-Calero designs runway hair looks for Miami Beach International Fashion Week By MarĂ­ Roma Villa, Editor

MIAMI BEACH, Florida -- A focal point of Miami Beach International Fashion Week, March 3-6, 2011, held at the Miami Convention Center this year, were the masterful runway hair looks created by Antonio Corral-Calero, Moroccanoil Artistic Director. Fashion designers from the U.S. and throughout Latin America were represented. Moroccanoil was presenting sponsor of the event. Corral-Calero designed a virtuoso collection of beautiful runway hair looks for collections, including: evening; pret-a-porter; swimwear and lingerie; as well as looks for the Miami Designer and Latin Fashion Council showcases. Highlights included: elegant updos; innovative chignons; and glamorous longer styles. All reflected the growing runway and editorial trend towards smoother, shinier and well-conditioned hair textures. Corral-Calero, who came to Miami after New York Fashion Week, where Moroccanoil products were used by top

runway stylists to create runway looks for leading Fall/Winter 2011 collections, noted, "We're seeing a movement toward smoother, shinier hair, regardless of the styles worn. In Miami, the humidity and intense sun can leave hair dry, frizzy and difficult to style.� For these shows, to make sure the hair looked its best quickly, we first used treatments on the models' hair to hydrate, restore condition and strength, remove frizz, as well as to protect it from the stress of the blowdryer, curling iron, brushing and backcombing. One of the most dramatic hair looks on the runway was a series of innovative chignons inspired by portraits by famed Spanish artist Julio Romero de Torres, as remembered by Corral-Calero during his

The gleaming, side-parted looks featured hair that was swept over and covered the ear in a subtle wave pattern on one side, and then pulled back and styled in smooth, rolled layers of hair that formed unique, very modern designs in the shape of a sea shell. Beautiful, fullbodied waved looks also energized the runway. "My inspiration was the freedom of the 70s and the sensuality of 60's French film siren Bridget Bardot. I wanted the hair to look very LA and Miami, and very sexy," said Corral-Calero. To make the look even more editorial, Antonio separated and styled the ends of the hair so they appeared almost ragged. Of course, in reality, we used Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to make sure they looked richly hydrated and healthy," he noted. For swimsuit and lingerie, he created

long, waved, side-swept looks, smoothed on one side, with hair rope-rolled from the side of head and under the nape of the neck and flowing loose waves falling down the back of hair as well as forward. "I had the glamorous allure of mermaids in mind when we created these looks: very sensual and elegant."

MEMPHIS, Tennessee -- In a nationwide effort to help fight childhood cancer, and other deadly diseases, Univision Radio, the leading Spanishlanguage radio group in the United States, and its listeners, raised more than $4.7 million in cash and pledges. This was done during the 14th annual Promesa y Esperanza (Promise and Hope) radiothon, which took place on February 3 and 4, benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the nation's top children's cancer hospital. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is internationally-recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. It’s the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tenn., St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. It is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay. Univision Radio stations across the country and Puerto Rico dedicated more than 30 hours of programming to raising funds for St. Jude and its lifesaving medical research. During the two-day event, listeners committed to becoming Angeles de Esperanza (Angels of Hope) by making a donation of $20 per month. All funds raised benefit St. Jude and help to provide treatments, housing, food and transportation to patients and their families free-of-charge. During the Promesa y Esperanza radiothon, St. Jude patients shared their stories live on air with Univision Radio

listeners and volunteers. Additionally, several Latin celebrities joined the national event by motivating listeners to become Angels of Hope through live radio interviews, recorded Public Service Announcements (PSAs), call-ins and continuous messages through their Facebook and Twitter accounts. Participating celebrities included: Luis Enrique; Luis Fonsi; Angelica Vale; Ricardo Montaner; Juanes; Thalia; Paulina Rubio; Prince Royce; Belanova; Julian Gil; Luz Rios; Noel Schajris; Alejandro Sanz; as well as some of Univision's most popular television personalities - Karla Martinez and Raul Gonzalez from "Despierta America"; and Ilia Calderon from "Primer Impacto" and "Noticiero Univision Edicion Nocturna." Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo, la Dra. Isabel, Javier Romero, Enrique Santos, Raul Brindis, Dra. Aliza Lifshitz, Alberto Sardinas, Jose Fernadez, Carlos Calderon, Luisa Fernanda, and many other popular Univision personalities, gave their time and talent to help the children of St. Jude. New this year, Univision Network and Univision Local Media used social media resources, such as Facebook and Twitter, and the St. Jude webpage, www. promesayesperanza.org, to motivate fans to support the radiothon. Fans were encouraged to share photos and videos from the radiothon on their social media sites, which helped to raise awareness about the work of St. Jude and the commitment of Univision to the hospital. Despite the bitter cold and icy roads in many of the cities hosting the event, committed volunteers made their way to the radio stations and radio listeners responded with tremendous support for the children of St. Jude. "We are delighted to have been able to support St. Jude's mission via our Radio and Interactive platforms and through

E N T E R TA I N M E N T mun2 and Telemundo Studios Begin Production of RPM Miami

By José Villa, Senior Editor

MIAMI, Florida -- mun2 Telemundo's bicultural, bilingual cable network - and Telemundo, a leading producer of high-quality content for Hispanics in the U.S. and audiences around the world, just announced that Telemundo Studios will begin production on "RPM Miami" – mun2's first-ever dramatic series with novela roots. The 13 episode scripted original production is scheduled to air weekly beginning May 1, 2011 at 10pm EDT. "Telemundo Studios is excited to be producing such an ambitious original project for mun2. RPM Miami is the first-ever scripted drama episodic series customized for the network and its audience of young U.S. Hispanics," stated Derek Bond, Telemundo’s Senior Executive Vice President Studios, Production and Broadcast Operations. "The mun2 viewer will be taken for a thrilling visual ride and exciting viewing experience of the highest production quality. This is yet another example of Telemundo's unique original programming model pioneered seven years ago. We hope this will be the first of many more to come." "RPM Miami is such a unique production that it warranted a genre of its own. We coined it a 'dramela,' targeting GenYLAs (Generation Young Latino Americans) who see themselves as uniquely American," said Jacqueline Hernandez, Telemundo’s Chief Operating Officer. "By utilizing mun2's expertise in this space, and Telemundo's state-ofthe-art production studios, this uniquely American production brings together the best of both worlds for the first time. It marks a milestone in Hispanic television

history." Burger King, Chevy and Valvoline are among the sponsors that have signed on to be a part of what is the network's largest partnership integration in its history. There will be on-air activations for all partners with brands and products organically integrated into the show via characters, automobiles and sets. Show integrations feature four Chevy vehicles, including the Camaro and the Cruze, Burger King's signature Whopper and the Valvoline branded garage. In addition, Valvoline has an exclusive digital integration on mun2. tv, providing viewers and car enthusiasts access to exclusive scenes that will not air on television, episode recaps featuring the hottest models and behind the scenes footage. In conjunction with the show's launch, mun2 and Valvoline are hosting an online viewer contest titled "King of the Street." This user-generated contest will be promoted on-air, online and extensively on Facebook, encouraging car enthusiasts to upload photos of their tuner cars for judging. The online community at mun2.tv and Facebook

will then vote to determine the winner of the best car, who will be awarded a trip to the largest tuner car auto show in the country. "This is mun2's most ambitious original production to date, and the

advertising community has taken notice of our investment and commitment by participating in what is the largest partnership integration activation in the network's history," added Diana Mogollon, General Manager, mun2. Full of action and drama, "RPM Miami" is a bilingual weekly drama series where young Latinos struggle to make something of themselves by day and reign the underground racing scene by night. "RPM Miami" was written by Juan Camilo Ferrand, also known for penning over 100 episodes of Telemundo's popular

program "Decisiones," as well as the audience-captivating "El Cartel." "RPM Miami" is directed by award-winning director, Jacobo Rispa, who has directed numerous TV movies in the drama and thriller genres for Endemol, Freemantle, Alquimia Cinema and Filmanoa. Renowned f i l m d i r e c t o r, J e s s y Te r r e r o serves as the show's Creative Consultant. Te r r e r o i s a n accomplished movie director whose most recent feature, The Gun, starred Val Kilmer, Anna Lynne McCord and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. He also produced the original short film Los Bandoleros, which reveals the events leading up to the beginning of Fast & Furious and was a huge online success and directly impacted DVD sales of the fourth film of the franchise. Terrero is also known for his influence on the music industry and in particular on the Latin music space having collaborated with such musical powerhouses as Enrique Iglesias, Wisin y Yandel, Paulina Rubio, Don Omar and Daddy Yankee among many others, on their music videos. His work has received prestigious industry accolades including several MTV Video Music Award nominations.

Census 2010 Continued from page 8

in 2000 to 14.7 million in 2010. They gained the most in share of the total population, moving up from about 4 percent in 2000 to about 5 percent in 2010. In the 2010 Census, just over onethird of the U.S. population reported their race and ethnicity as something other than non-Hispanic white alone (i.e. "minority"). This group increased from 86.9 million to 111.9 million between 2000 and 2010, representing a growth of 29 percent over the decade. Geographically, particularly in the South and West, a number of areas had large proportions of the total population that was minority. Nearly half of the

West's population was minority (47 percent), numbering 33.9 million. Among the states, California led the nation with the largest minority population at 22.3 million. Between 2000 and 2010, Texas joined California, the District of Columbia, Hawaii and New Mexico in having a "majority-minority" population, where more than 50 percent of the population was part of a minority group. Among all states, Nevada's minority population increased at the highest rate, by 78 percent. The Census Bureau collects race and Hispanic origin information following the U.S. Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) standards for collecting and tabulating data on race and ethnicity. In October 1997, the OMB issued the current standards, which identify five race groups: white, black or AfricanAmerican, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. The Census Bureau also utilized a sixth category

-- "some other race." Individuals were first presented with the option to self-identify with more than one race in the 2000 Census, and this continued in the 2010 Census. People who identify with more than one race may choose to provide multiple races in response to the race question. The 2010 Census results provide new data on the size and makeup of the nation's multiracial population. Respondents who reported more than one of the six race groups are included in the "two or more races" population. There are 57 possible combinations of the six race groups. The Census Bureau included the "some other race" category for responses that could not be classified in any of the other race categories on the questionnaire. The vast majority of people who reported only as "some other race" were of Hispanic or Latino origin. Data on Hispanics or Latinos, who may be of any race, were obtained from a separate question on ethnicity.
