From one chapter to the next…

In Sept. 2004, I walked in 229 West 43rd Street.



Little did I know how much my life would change.

After five plus years, I left what had been my second home The New York Times. As I said to the most amazing colleagues I had the great fortune to work with: I sometimes look at life (or maybe everything) as if it were a baseball game. Sometimes curve balls are thrown at you, sometimes you’re on a good streak, sometimes not so much; you try new things or keep with what’s working; and you work with all sorts of players but beyond that you’re ultimately part of a team. And I, will miss THE team. An organization, a team I had the privilege to work with with, laugh with and learn from.

So yesterday I walked through these doors



to the next base on the plate; I turned the page to the next chapter in my life. I’m excited for what awaits me. I’m going to work for a company that I have admired for as long as I can remember, where I will be using my first language more and an organization that I believe is truly genial. Univision.

I will continue posting to Twitter what I read, including The New York Times. So to that, enjoy the 2010 World Cup! Here are some links for your reading pleasure:

How does one withstand all that is going on in Haiti?

COURAGE. 
It’s quite remarkable the courage these people have —> volunteers, rescue teams, doctors, nurses and journalists — yes, journalists. I commend our journalists for keeping us informed of the situation there; from The New York Times to NBC to CNN.

I specifically want to point out the astonishing coverage by The New York Times — reporting, interactive features, rounding up online sources, etc.

Here are some examples:


And finally, I commend all of those who are in someway involved in helping with the disaster in Haiti. If I were the rescue team member below, I’d probably have the same expression.
