Tainos, the largest indigenous Caribbean population, were living a life based on the cultivation of root crops and fishing when upon the shores arrived Columbus and his fleet, having crossed the Atlantic Ocean for the second time in as many years. At that point in time everything changed. What’s written on paper has told us much about what happened next. What’s written in the DNA of today’s Puerto Ricans can tell us some more. National Geographic’s Genographic Project researches locations where different groups historically intermixed to create a modern day melting pot. Our Genographic team learned some key pieces of information that helped us gain more insight into the peopling of the Caribbean.

35% of Puerto Rican Women Sterilized

A hitherto "secret" report from an economic policy group empowered by the Governor of Puerto Rico has recently surfaced in the United States. One can see immediately why the report, dated November, 1973, has been kept from the public: it talks openly and directly about alternatives available for reducing the ranks of the Puerto Rican working class. As the report, entitled "Opportunities for Employment, Education and Training" would have it, Puerto Rico's key problem is, and has always been, unemployment.

Education or Domination? The Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Ford Foundations Developing Knowledge for the Developing World By: Andrew Gavin Marshall. The Rockefeller Foundation’s Hand in Hobby Lobby. The Supreme Court’s reasoning and decision in Hobby Lobby should make the foundation reflect on the relative wisdom of its initiative to blend the nonprofit and for-profit sectors.
