brought his unique sensibility to an English-speaking audience for the
first time with “AMERICA with Jorge Ramos” on Fusion, a new network
launched by Univision and Disney/ABC Television Group. Ramos has
appeared on the Time magazine list of “25 most influential Hispanics in
the United States” and the Newsweek list of 50 top political and media

McCain, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Newt
Gingrich, Mitt Romney, John Edwards, Al Gore, George Bush Sr., John

In 2002, he created the first book club in the history of Hispanic

to promote literacy among Latinos.
Univision Network reaches 96 percent of U.S. Hispanic households. It is
one of the top five networks, regardless of language, and the
most-watched Spanish-language broadcast television network in the U.S.
Univision local news is the number one rated overall newscast in many

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.
You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
