There is a constant dispute over the famous "ratings" 24 hours a day; ratings that will provide television companies with millions of dollars. The rest is done by their local affiliates that provide competition to attract more people. In Los Angeles, for example, the 6 pm news of KMEX Channel 34 ( Univisión ) attracts the most viewers in the great metropolitan zone, even more than those in English.


Radio is another phenomenon that has acquired stratospheric dimensions. More than 600 radio stations of AM and FM frequencies tell us the news, give conversation, allow dialogue, make us laugh, facilitate social services to us, and make us sing and dance to all the rhythms and music of the Hispanic world. Both of the top national programs in the morning as far as the number of listeners tuned in are Hispanic radio stations of Los Angeles. The programs of "The Piolín in the Morning" and “El Cucuy," have the highest listener indexes in the country with their jokes and services between 4 and 11 in the morning. The first one is by the Mexican announcer Eddie Sotelo, and the second with the Honduran Renán Almendárez Coit.

Written press

In addition to the newspapers of the countries of origin, the Hispanic or Latinos of the United States have more than 1,500 publications in daily and weekly newspapers, big and small, that compete to inform the million García, Fernández, Pérez, etc. This is not counting several magazines with national reach, and keeping in mind that great national publications have versions in Spanish. People, Vanity, National Geographic, and Good Housekeeping are available as People en Español, Vanidades, National Geographic en Español, and Buen Hogar not to mention the magazines directed to concrete groups like Hispanic Business of Santa Barbara, California; Latino Leaders, the National Magazine of the Successful American Latino, of Texas; and others.  People en Español is the highest selling Spanish-language magazine. Though new publications are rare in any language, the magazines Tu Ciudad, written in English, and Hombre (bilingual) have just been released.

Declining language

It makes me scoff to hear talk of the 40 or more million Hispanics that want to be reached by all publications written in Spanish for the simple reason that it is not true. That amount indicates the existence of individuals of Hispanic ancestry, the ones who use Spanish as the language in which they communicate. The Census, specialized studies, and surveys reveal that the first generation of immigrants speak Spanish almost exclusively and hardly attempt to speak in English. They are the ones that read the news in Spanish. Their children speak English and a little Spanish. Many dominate the language if their parents made them learn it and teach it to their children in turn, who already usually read the news in English and a little in Spanish. They understand the language of their parents, but use it very little. Many only use it to speak with grandparents. The third generation; the grandchildren of immigrants, no longer speak, read, or understand Spanish. They do not feel comfortable or safe maintaining a conversation in that language. However, marketing research studies detect a possible tendency for Hispanic youth to recover the paternal language because it seems "cool" to speak it.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
