In 2004, Florida ACORN helped to raise Florida's minimum wage by $1.00 per hour, by lobbying for a minimum wage amendment to be placed on the ballot. Over 1 million Florida employees were affected by the raise, which is adjusted annually for inflation. That year, ACORN became an international organization, opening offices in Canada, Peru, and beginning work in Dominican Republic. Since then offices have opened in Mexico and Argentina. South American properties were mainly copper deposits such as the Antamina copper zinc open-pit mine in northern Peru, the Collahuasi copper molybdenum open-pit mine (including mill, liquid-liquid extraction plant, and electrowinning plant) in northern Chile, the Lomas Bayas open-pit copper mine (including liquid-liquid extraction plant and electrowinning plant), and the Altonorte copper smelter also in northern Chile. The screenplay is based primarily on Guevara's travelogue (Travel literature) ''The Motorcycle Diaries'' by Ernesto "Che" Guevara, with additional context supplied by ''Traveling with Che Guevara: The Making of a Revolutionary'' by Alberto Granado. Guevara is played by Mexican actor Gael García Bernal, and Granado by the Argentine (Argentina) actor Rodrigo de la Serna, who coincidentally is a second cousin to the real life Guevara on his maternal side. Durbin, Karen. ''The New York Times,'' Arts Section, September 12, 2004. Last accessed: March 23, 2008. Directed by Brazilian director Walter Salles and written by Puerto Rican (Puerto Rico) playwright José Rivera (José Rivera (playwright)), the film was an international co-production among production companies from Argentina, the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Chile, Peru and France. The film's executive producers were Robert Redford, Paul Webster (Paul Webster (producer)), and Rebecca Yeldham; the producer (Film producer)s were Edgard Tenenbaum, Michael Nozik, and Karen Tenkoff; and the co-producer (Film producer)s were Daniel Burman and Diego Dubcovsky. In 1952, a semester before Ernesto "Fuser" Guevara is due to complete his medical degree, he and his older friend Alberto Granado, a biochemist, leave Buenos Aires in order to travel across South America. While there is a goal at the end of their journey - they intend to work in a leper colony in Peru - the main purpose is initially fun and adventure. They desire to see as much of Latin America as they can, more than 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) in just four and a half months, while Granado's purpose is also to court as many women as will fall for his pick-up lines. Their initial method of transport is Granado's dilapidated Norton 500 motorcycle christened ''La Poderosa'' ("The Mighty One"). However, it is a visit to the ancient Incan ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru that solidifies something in Guevara. His musings are then somberly refocused to how an indigenous civilization capable of building such beauty could be destroyed by the creators of the eventual polluted urban decay of nearby Lima. Excerpted Clip of Machu Picchu from the film ''The Motorcycle Diaries'' directed by Walter Salles, distributed by Focus Features, 2004 His reflections are interrupted by Granado, who shares with him a dream to peacefully revolutionize and transform modern South America, to which Guevara quickly retorts: "A revolution without guns? It will never work." Later, in Peru, they volunteer for three weeks at the San Pablo (San Pablo, Peru) leper (leprosy) colony. There, Guevara observes both literally and metaphorically the division of society, as the staff live on the north side of a river, separated from the deprived lepers living to the south. To demonstrate his solidarity, Guevara refuses to wear rubber gloves during his visit choosing instead to shake bare hands with the startled leper inmates. Moreover, Bernal (who is Mexican) adopted an Argentine (Argentina) accent and spent 14 weeks reading the works of José Martí, The Citizen Actor: Gael Garcia Bernal's Sense of Duty by Jesse Ashlock, ''RES'' Magazine Karl Marx and Pablo Neruda (Guevara's favorite poet). Bernal told reporters "I feel a lot of responsibility. I want to do it well because of what Che represents to the world. He is a romantic (Romanticism). He had a political consciousness that changed Latin America." Che Trippers by Lawrence Osborne, ''The New York Observer'', June 15, 2003 As Bernal experienced locales in Chile, Peru and Bolivia; with social conditions unchanged or worsened since Guevara passed through a half-century before, he took to heart Guevara's internationalist (Internationalism (politics)) assertion in a "fiction of nations." Bernal believes this process allowed him to "engage with Latin America", in much the same way he believes that the young Guevara had. According to Bernal, the role crystallized his "own sense of duty" because Guevara "decided to live on the side of the mistreated, to live on the side of the people who have no justice - and no voice." In surmising the similarities between his own personal transformation and Guevara's, Bernal posits that "my generation is awakening, and we're discovering a world full of incredible injustice." In a journey that lasts eight months, the partners travel over 14,000 kilometers, from Argentina through Chile, Peru, and Colombia to Venezuela. Key locations along the journey described in the film include: In Argentina: Buenos Aires, Miramar, Buenos Aires, Villa Gesell, In Argentina: Buenos Aires, Miramar, Buenos Aires, Villa Gesell, San Martín de los Andes, Lago Frías, Patagonia and Nahuel Huapi Lake ; In Chile: Temuco (Temuco, Chile), Los Angeles (Los Ángeles, Chile), Valparaiso (Valparaíso, Chile), Atacama desert, and Chuquicamata; In Peru: Cuzco (Cuzco, Peru), Machu Picchu, Lima (Lima, Peru); The San Pablo Leper Colony (San Pablo, Peru); Plus Leticia, Colombia and Caracas, Venezuela. * '''Esteban''' (voiced by Shiraz Adam) – An orphan who was rescued at sea as a baby twelve years ago by the Spanish navigator Mendoza. He wears one of the two sun medallions. He dreams of adventure and is very impulsive. Esteban has a fear of heights which is confounded by the people of Barcelona who believe him to be the "Child of the Sun" and hoist him up high at the port to call out the sun to aid the departing ships. He joins the Spaniards in their search for one of The Seven Cities of Gold in the New World, hoping to find his father. * '''Zia''' (voiced by Janice Chaikelson) – The daughter of an Inca high priest. She was kidnapped from Peru five years ago, when she was seven, by the Spanish invaders and given as a present to the Queen of Spain for her daughter, Princess Margarita.

Plot The story focus on how Luther and Nora Krank try to avoid the frenzy traditionally experienced during the Christmas holiday. On the Sunday after Thanksgiving (Thanksgiving (United States)), the two bring their daughter Blair to the airport, where she departs for a year-long assignment in a remote area of Peru with the Peace Corps. Nora bemoans the fact the upcoming Christmas will be their first time they are separated as a family, prompting her husband to calculate how much they spent celebrating the holidays the prior year. When he realizes they have little to show for the $6,100 they invested in decorations, gifts, and entertaining, he decides to skip all the hubbub at home and surprise Nora by booking a ten-day Caribbean (Caribbean Sea) Cruise (Cruise ship) aboard the ''Island Princess''. Nora at first is skeptical but accepts the idea under one condition to still give a donation to the church and Children's Hospital of $600. At first Luther refuses, but when she refuses the idea otherwise he agrees and they begin to plan the trip. But, despite all the work that he had done, Cernadas would not become a major international super-star until 2002, when he flew to Peru to act in "Bésame Tonto" ("Kiss me, Fool"), alongside Gianella Neyra. The soap opera, which featured romantic, family and even mafia twists, became the number one show in many countries, such as the Dominican Republic, Chile, Panama and many other countries. This soap opera marked the beginning of a period in which Cernadas began to be recognized as a teen idol by girls and young women outside Argentina as well.

. Another one of Gaudette's more important successes has been his work with John Baumann, S.J., and the Pacific Institute for Community Organization (PICO National Network), of Oakland, which stands as one of the more active community organizing groups in the United States today. Gaudette was also responsible for community organizations in Seattle, Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), and Baltimore, among other places. http: www.lmu.edu Page5494.aspx Okies and Arkies The Depression (Great Depression)-era migrants to the San Joaquin Valley from the South and Midwest are one of the more well-known groups in the Central Valley, in large part due to the popularity of John Steinbeck's novel ''The Grapes of Wrath'' and the Henry Fonda movie made from it. By 1910, agriculture in the southern Great Plains had become nearly unviable due to soil erosion and poor rainfall. Much of the rural population of states such as Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas left at this time, selling their land and moving to Chicago (Chicago, Illinois), Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), Detroit (Detroit, Michigan), and fast-growing Los Angeles (Los Angeles, California). Those who remained experienced continuing deterioration of conditions, which reached their nadir during the drought that began in the late 1920s and created the infamous Dust Bowl. (Small cotton farmers in states such as Mississippi and Alabama suffered similar problems from the first major infestation of the boll weevil.) When the onset of the Great Depression created a national banking crisis, family farmers—usually heavily in debt—often had their mortgages foreclosed by banks desperate to shore up their balance sheets. In response, many farmers loaded their families and portable possessions into their automobiles and drove west. 150px (Image:Kcsky.jpg) Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri) is the largest city in Missouri, as well as the anchor city of the state's second largest metropolitan area (United States metropolitan area) (the Kansas City Metropolitan Area).

In October 1995, the National Severe Storms Forecast Center relocated to Norman and was renamed the Storm Prediction Center. From the time of the move until 2006, it was co-located with the National Severe Storms Laboratory at University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport. In 2006, they moved into the National Weather Center. The '''National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Men's Basketball National Championship''' has been held annually since 1937 (1937 NAIA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament) (with the exception of 1944 (1944 NAIA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament)). The tournament was established by James Naismith to crown a national champion for smaller colleges and universities. The NAIA Tournament features only 32 teams, and the entire tournament is contested in one week instead of three weekends. Since 1992, the NAIA has sponsored a Division II championship. Also the entire tournament is played in one city (Kansas City, Missouri DI, and Point Lookout, Missouri DII). Contracts for both cities will expire after 2010, requiring renewal or selection of a new host city. '''Robert Morris''' (born 9 February 1931, Kansas City, Missouri) is an American sculptor, conceptual artist and writer. He is regarded as one of the most prominent theorists of Minimalism along with Donald Judd but he has also made important contributions to the development of performance art, land art, the Process Art movement and installation art. wheelbase *St. Paul (w:Saint Paul, Minnesota), Minnesota (w:Minnesota) *Kansas City Assembly (w:Kansas City Assembly) of Kansas City (w:Kansas City, Missouri), Missouri (w:Missouri) *Norfolk Assembly of Norfolk (w:Norfolk, Virginia), Virginia (w:Virginia) Still, Harlan was in attendance at Yankee Stadium (w:Yankee Stadium) during the team's Opening Day series this year.
