    Esperanza Azteca reaches the White House

    The White House, the official residency of the President of the United States, is a venue where very few musicians have had the privilege to showcasing their talent. A group of children from Esperanza Azteca did just that on May 5 during the celebration of Mexico’s victory at the Battle of Puebla, 153 years ago.

    “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s”

    Here are some quick reflections on a book on the life of Julius Caesar, one of the most important figures in history. Some of the lessons from this man, who dictated a good part of global political, economic and military actions in the 1st century BC, are still valuable today.

    Bicentennial (5): Art and Culture

    Mexico is heir to diverse and very rich millennial cultures. But we sometimes forget the enormous value that this represents. The Bicentennial is an excellent occasion to reflect on this topic, and to act to the extent of our possibilities.

    Esperanza Azteca

    I have always thought that education should form well-balanced individuals, and- by the way- this is the philosophy behind Plantel Azteca.

    A City of Ideas

    Why do some companies survive crises while others don’t? Why are some economies more successful than others? The answers undoubtedly have to do with the capacity of each individual and of each organization to generate new ideas and solutions to increasingly complex problems.

    Olympic Lessons

    Olympic victories are without a doubt a cause for national celebration. When Guillermo Pérez and María del Rosario Espinosa took to the medal stand for their performances in taekwondo, it was no exception. Just as victory is a time for celebration, defeat –especially in national pastime sports like soccer, severely affect national morale.

    High Energy

    The state of sports in Mexico is a topic that we could talk a lot about. Although we climbed 23 spots in Olympic medal ranking, number 36 is still not acceptable for a country with 100 million inhabitants. To a great extent, our record of three medals in Beijing is a symptom of what doesn’t work in our country.

    Our Templo Mayor

    At Grupo Salinas, we are very concerned about and busy improving education in Mexico. We are aware of the very serious problems facing basic education in our country, and we must all contribute our grain of salt to improve its quality. The political class tells us that the country is spending more and more, but what we would all like to see are more and better results.
