#1432 - Genius Is... / by Daisy Rosario | August 8, 2014

#1432 – Genius Is…

In this episode, Latino USA brings you stories of perspiration and inspiration. First, guest host Daisy Rosario looks into how we define intellgence. We hear about a physics teacher driving success in California. One congressman’s efforts to pass immigration reform just aren’t genius enough. We learn about Latino mega-stars you might not have heard of, online, in soccer, and in music. An ingenious new online platform, Vine, is launching careers and attracting a young Latino audience. Latin@ studies professors form a new professional association. And a singer-songwriter looks for wisdom on a dark note.
