If you read my blog over at MommyNiri.com you will know how important reading is in my life. In fact today I spent time at the WGBH studio planning more exciting stuff to come. Reading is a passion I hope to instill in my kids. In fact my 1st Grader has a grid from school

Stop The “R” Word Already!

Stop The “R” Word Already!

I am behind, in everything, but this was too important not to stop and post about. Every time I hear someone use the word “retard” I cringe. Ok, so having a kid with special needs may make me a tad more sensitive but I really do wish people would stop using the word… now! I

Ruckus Media’s App Sales Support St Jude Children’s Research Hospital

I love the quality oozed out of the apps created by Ruckus Media. Whether it is the amazing illustrations or the wonderful voices (my favorite actress Meryl  Streep is in one of the) there is nothing I don’t like about those apps.

Service Is At the Heart of LATISM!

On November 9-11, 2011, Latinos In Social Media (LATISM) hosted their annual conference in Chicago.
