The ballad of Gregorio Cortez The story starts out with a headline stating that fifty years after Texas had won its independence, Mexicans and Anglo Texans still lived in tension and fear. As an example was the account of Gregorio Cortez a story told in two different versions, Cortez’s side and the Texas Ranger’s side. A writer Bill Blanchly interviews captain Rogers about the incident where he tells them that the Texas rangers are the ones after him trying to bring him into the authorities. In the next scene you see Gregorio Cortez being chased by the rangers and switching from one horse to another after they tire. Then the reporter asks Boone Choate who had accompanied Sheriff Morris about the day of the incident. That’s where he gets question about a trade he did with the rangers for a horse. When he answers no, he traded a yegua instead, being misinterpreted the sheriffs thinks he’s trying to lie. He immediately pulls a gun on him and the Sherriff ends up shooting his brother and seeing this Cortez shoots the sheriff. Then the man chase against Gregorio Cortez begins, and not only him but his family which in return gets incarcerated until they find Cortez. Then Boone tells how they went looking for him at a friend’s house that lived in Henry Schnabel’s ranch. When the rangers got to the house it was dark and according to Boone they started firing at them from inside the house. Schnabel and Sherriff Glover ended up dead killed by Gregorio Cortez. After days of chasing him around the plains of Texas Cortez was turned in by a man whose house was being used by Cortez. When Cortez was incarcerated he was appointed an attorney and a translator. That’s where Cortez side of the story gets told. He tells his attorney that he didn’t know why the sheriff wanted him arrested but after seeing him shoot his brother he shot back.

One of these conquerors was Cortes who was under the authority of Diego Valazquez governor of Cuba, like most conquerors Cortes broke away from Valazquez and headed to conquer Mexico, which he heard is a country full of riches.

Introduction to Rizal Course

...life and good memories of his childhood days in Calamba. Some of his memorable experiences are the daily family prayer during Angelus where all the members of the family gather and pray together and the story telling after dinner. He grew up a pious Catholic owing to the training provided him by his mother. He learned how to pray and even read the Bible. However, in his fourth year, Rizal experienced his first sorrow. This was when his younger sister, Concepcion (Concha) died. It was very traumatic as she was Rizal’s playmate and was very close to her probably because of their one year age difference. At a young age, there were already indications that Rizal was intellectually gifted as he was influenced by his three uncles namely, Gregorio influence him in reading books and passion for writing; Jose influence him on his skills in sketching / drawing and Manuel influencing him to become athletic (fencing and wrestling). He was able to master the alphabet when he was three (3) years old. At his young age, he showed great interest in reading. He enjoyed reading books in their library at home with his mother as his critic. The young Rizal also showed his flair in sketching, painting, sculpture, and literature. At eight (8) years old, he was able to writ his first poem. This poem entitled by historians as “Sa Aking Mga Kababata” or “To My Fellow Children” since this poem was not given any title by Rizal. This poem reveals that Rizal had a concept of nationalism......

...Module 3 The readings for this week offended me as a Mexican American. Racial remarks and accusations will always be made by those who believe there in power. As I was reading Gregorio Cortez, I had the impression that the American Sheriffs blamed Cortez for the “horse-thief”, all simply because the sheriffs didn’t understand Spanish. I believe that if the racial empowerment wasn’t involved then Cortez wouldn’t have been mistreated. “-local authorities in south Texas began searching for a horse thief, described only as a “medium-sized Mexican.” Lawmen confronted Cortez and confusion ensued, since neither the sheriff nor his deputy understood Spanish.” The sheriffs assumed that because they were White American Sheriffs they had the power to accuse an innocent Mexican. But even with this racial remark, Cortez fought to protect his race. Cortez was fearless he wanted the racistism to end. “so now I will surrender, because such things are not right.” Such as in the reading “ The Homeland, Aztlan”. They mistreat Mexicans only because they are in the U.S illegally. The whites again believe they are in higher power therefore led to deportation. When in reality Pedro had his papers, but because he was a Mexican they figured he was in the country illegally. Whites are so quick to judge by the color of your skin. To them you could never be as good as them. My cousin lived her entire life in Minnesota, and when I recently visited her, I quickly became the talk of the neighborhood.......

...Objectives: 1. To be able to establish camaraderie and rapport among employees of the center. 2. To be able to continue to attract the best and brightest employees. III. Analysis This is about the circumstances why Sylvia Gregorio wants out of CERD. It not just answer the question of job dissatisfaction but also the outline the steps to take in order to align employee values with that of the organization and what its visions are. It takes into account the recognition of talent, efficiency at work and the values that employees must develop in order to create an organization that encourages camaraderie, rapport and team success rather than being confined to few individuals or gender-equality, efficiency at work and recognition of job accomplishment. At the same time, her negative behaviors about her being unsatisfied with her work as an analyst gives away to complaints and other issues about job inefficiency. IV. Alternative course of solution 1. On promotion of Sylvia Gregorio as head of Solar section: Advantages: • Talent retention • Job satisfaction resulting in increased productivity and boredom at work. Disadvantages: • Resistance to authority due to masculine dominated workplace and lack of respect 2. On the reassignment of Sylvia Gregorio to another office within CERD. Advantages: • Talent retention • Will be upbeat on the new challenge resulting to greater productivity, less absenteeism. Disadvantage: • May create friction with new co-employees. V.......

One of the more famous hero border corridos is El Corrido de Gregorio Cortez. Americo Paredes illustrates the story of Gregorio Cortez (1875-1916) as a rancher in Texas who became wanted by the law for killing the Sheriff who had shot his brother over a misunderstanding about a stolen mare Downes, Lawrence New York Times (1923-Current file); Aug 16, 2009; ProQuest Historical Newspapers: The New York Times (1851-2009) pg. TR1 ("Pistol" 95-97). The corrido tells of Cortez’s flight and soon capture by police. Cortez served time in jail and eventually received a pardon (Paredes, "Pistol" 97). Through El Corrido Cortez became a legend and hero for the repressed people under Diaz’s rule and for Mexicans living across the border in Texas. El Corrido is just one of the many corridos musician that help bring to light the injustices that Mexican people faced at and around the border. Hero corridos honor the men who suffered at the hand of oppressors and help keep the memory of those heroes alive. These songs in a way immortalize the hero or main characters of the story. It is through El Corrido that Gregorio Cortez’s story remains alive today. During the 1970’s drug trafficking throughout Mexico and on the US border was becoming increasingly popular.

Mexican American Historiography

...oppressive new regime." Rosenbaum provides intriguing insights into patterns of Mexican Americans' resistance to American legal and economic encroachment, but his analysis is problematic on several levels. Rosenbaum imputes political motivation to virtually every known instance and variety of Hispanic resistance or violence in the Southwest from 1850 through the early twentieth century, arguing that such acts "express[ed] the outrage that dominated peoples fe[lt] toward those in power." Thus, the almost mythical exploits of Joaquin Murieta, Tiburcio Vasquez, and other "social bandits" in Gold Rush California are compared to Texas' "border skirmishes" such as the Cortina War of 1859, the El Paso Salt War of 1877, and the famous flight of Gregorio Cortez in 1901. Rosenbaum's argument does provide a convenient mechanism for categorizing the widely varied incidents described in the book, but the logic of his argument also leads him to make speculative and largely unsubstantiated generalizations about the Spanish-speaking population's beliefs and attitudes about those incidents. Despite his own assertion that "withdrawal-ignoring the fact of conquest as much as possible-was the preferred tactic for the majority" of Mexicans in the Southwest, the author tends to emphasize the sigacts of overt resistance while nificance of the most well-known offering little insight into the mechanisms of their accommodation to American hegemony. To cite the most obvious example, Rosenbaum does not......

...U.S. Supreme Court UNITED STATES v. CORTEZ, 449 U.S. 411 (1981) 449 U.S. 411 UNITED STATES v. CORTEZ ET AL. CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT No. 79-404. Argued December 1, 1980 Decided January 21, 1981 Based on their discovery of sets of distinctive human footprints in the desert, Border Patrol officers deduced that on a number of occasions groups of from 8 to 20 persons had been guided by a person, whom they designated "Chevron," from Mexico across an area of desert in Arizona, known to be heavily trafficked by aliens illegally entering the country. These groups of aliens proceeded to an isolated point on a road to be picked up by a vehicle; the officers deduced the vehicle probably approached from the east and returned to the east after the pickup. They also surmised, based on the times when the distinctive tracks were discovered, that "Chevron" generally traveled on clear nights during or near weekends, and arrived at the pickup point between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. On the basis of this information, the officers stationed themselves at a point east of the probable pickup point on a night when they believed there was a strong possibility that "Chevron" would be smuggling aliens. The officers observed a pickup truck with a camper shell suitable for carrying sizable groups pass them heading west and then observed the same vehicle return within the estimated time for making a round trip to the pickup point. The officers......

This is important because mostly what we wear every day is made of cotton. The Peculiar Institution- Slave population was increasing as well as for buying them to make more cotton.

This important because everyone now in the U.S has freedom. The North- The North had a very different belief than the south with socially, economically, and politically.

Sylvia Gregorio Case Study

...career growth of other employees like Sylvia Gregorio. Other indicators include frequent discussions of male engineers’ drinking sessions, girls and disco prompting Sylvia Gregorio to lament that regular staff appears more intellectual than the engineers. There is also that gender bias, at least within the Solar section, where jobs usually involves installation works. Men are preferred over women as they are more flexible. Sylvia, subtly stated that with this current setup, there is no chance she will be promoted. 2. Compensation Compensation package appears uneven and subjective. Sylvia Gregorio managed to negotiate a higher amount. Although this is not extraordinary and irregular. In contrast, J. Velasco, with his apparent superior qualifications, is earning less than Sylvia’s, despite the fact that both entered CERD almost at the same time. Confidentiality of compensation packages of employees was also breached. The German consultant managed to get hold of confidential salary information that was used ostensibly to force Sylvia Gregorio to report on time and avoid absences. Salary disparities are major source of frictions among employees and even with management. Once compensation packages leaks out to employees, the comparison starts. Questions like why Sylvia receives higher pay than her immediate supervisor leaves negative impressions and misinterpretations of co-employees. 3. Job Performance Appraisal Sylvia Gregorio is efficient as an analyst as Mr.......

Sylvia Gregorio

...Sylvia Gregorio Case Analysis I. Problem statement What should Mr. M. Lacdao do with Sylvia Gregorio’s offer of resignation as analyst of Center for Energy Research and Development’s Solar section brought about by absence of organizational value system? Objectives: To be able to establish camaraderie and rapport among employees of the center. To be able to continue to attract the best and brightest employees. II. Areas of consideration 1. Value system Value system is a set of ethical values and measures used for the purpose of ethical or ideological integrity. Organizational value systems are standards of behaviors that govern individual employee behavior within an organization. A personal value system on the other hand is a set of principles or ideals that drive or guide a person’s behavior. Absence of organizational value system encourages employees to pursue behaviors in line with their personal value system, which may not be the values the organization wants to develop. CERD lacks organizational value system. Its absence encouraged some women employees to develop exclusive groupings. It abetted unfair practice of exclusively grabbing training opportunities abroad by some management and training section personnel, curtailing equal opportunity and personal ambitions and career growth of other employees like Sylvia Gregorio. Other indicators include frequent discussions of male engineers’ drinking sessions, girls and disco prompting Sylvia Gregorio to......
