The most common name for the celebration in Spanish (including in some Latin American communities in the United States) is the Día de la Raza (“day of the race” or “day of the [Hispanic] people”), commemorating the first encounters of Europeans and Native Americans. The day was first celebrated in Argentina in 1917, Venezuela and Colombia in 1921, Chile in 1922, and Mexico in 1928. The day was also celebrated under this title in Spain until 1957, when it was changed to the Día de la Hispanidad (“Hispanity Day”), and in Venezuela until 2002, when it was changed to the Día de la Resistencia Indígena (Day of Indigenous Resistance).Actual observance of the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas varies in different parts of the United States, ranging from large-scale parades and alternative events reclaiming the indigenous and African roots of the Americas to complete non-observance.Come and join to celebrate the diversity of Pasadena’s Latino / Hispanic culture with music, food, folkloric dance, family activities, and a community resource fair.

Part of the Council’s goals will be to identify policies which artificially increase the cost of homeownership and reduce regulatory burdens.Nationally, affordability has been the primary roadblock to homeownership, according to First American’s Real Estate Sentiment Index (RESI).“The main burden, affordability, confirms the strong sellers’ market conditions from 2018 have continued in many markets in early 2019, as demand outpaces supply and prices continue to rise,” said First American Chief Economist Mark Fleming.To increase affordability, HUD laid out a plan for the new Council, which includes taking action to reduce Federal regulatory and administrative burdens that discourage private investment and housing development and streamline statutory, regulatory, and administrative burdens that inhibit the development of affordable housing supply.

Lidl and Aldi’s growth driven by millennials

first_imgGrowth in discount retailers Lidl and Aldi is being driven by millennials, whose spend on grocery shopping is rising three times faster than that of the overall population, according to Nielsen.Millennial spend at Aldi increased 46% year-on-year (52 w/e 16 July 2016) – compared to a 19% increase across all Aldi shoppers. Millennial spend at Lidl rose 28% – nearly twice the rate across all shoppers (15%).Historically, Asda has had the strongest appeal with millennials – especially millennial families who make 17.1% of their grocery spend to Asda, compared to 11.4% among the total population.“Although millennials, particularly families, have historically over-indexed on shopping at Asda, they’re now driving the growth of the discounters,” said Mike Watkins, Nielsen’s UK head of retailer and business insight.“However, it’s important not to think of millennials as one homogenous group. For example, they’ve also increased spend dramatically at Marks & Spencer, which has a large price difference to the discounters due a different product assortment.”Although overall grocery spend in Britain rose 2.7% year-on-year, spend among households where a millennial (aged 16-35) was the main shopper grew 7.9% – ahead of the next fastest-growing spenders, households led by people aged 65+ (up 3%).The average millennial household with children now spends an extra £210 annually on groceries compared to last year, while millennial households without kids spend £113 extra.In October, food marketing agency Kindred revealed that baking has become more common among millennials.last_img read more
