I love Mexican food, all sorts of Mexican food. My children share this passion as well. We used to have one day set aside each week for what we called “taco night”. Unfortunately, my British husband never seemed to share in our excitement. Even though we would make enough to feed a neighborhood, by the time we were done, he might settle for toast in the end. I’ve tried to find new “tweaks” to bring him over to the bright side. He will eat almost anything now wrapped in a soft tortilla, so that’s something.

Mortgage Rates Keep Falling

As you may have already seen in the news recently, mortgage rates continue to fall to all time lows.  Plus, with foreclosures still a problem in most areas of the country driving down home prices, it may very well be the time to start looking seriously at purchasing a home (if you’ve been thinking about it).

We found a good resource for comparing mortgage rates as well as refinance rates.  Plus, they offer a simple mortgage payment calculator, as well as a more advanced mortgage comparison calculator that visually displays different mortgage options based upon your criteria.

Anyway, if you have been thinking about purchasing a home or refinancing an existing mortgage you may want to start taking a serious look at your options.  Low interest rates and pricing pressures could mean opportunity for home buyers…

NewMe Accelerator Class

For the last three months, the NewMe Accelerator class of spring 2012 has been fully immersed in the entrepreneurial process. The NewMe “founders” have been busy working long days at The Hub in San Francisco and living together in a house nearby. The goal: to develop, design and launch new startup companies.

Last week these NewMe founders held their demo day in the Google San Francisco office, where they presented the fruits of their efforts—seven brand new companies—to an audience of more than 100 investors, entrepreneurs and supporters.

This is the second year of NewME, a program designed by founder and CEO Angela Benton to be an accelerator in Silicon Valley for minority-led startups from around the country. We’ve been delighted to participate in and sponsor both seasons.

Some NewME products have already launched in beta and are live in market. Founder Naithan Jones of AgLocal has 20 farms using the beta version of his Local Meat Lovers Service, which is running in his hometown of Kansas City and in the Bay Area. Similarly, Butlr, Ubi, Helpr, Kairos, Citizen Made and PictureMENU have all hit the ground running. In addition, the reach of NewME has gone beyond Silicon Valley. Through NewMe Communities entrepreneurs all across the U.S. have been getting together monthly to share stories and support.

Google supports NewMe as part of our Google for Entrepreneurs and Accelerate with Google programs, which help minority-owned and underrepresented small businesses use online tools to grow. We are committed to supporting diversity in entrepreneurship through great programs like NewMe, and we’re excited to continue working together to ensure diversity of perspectives, talent and experiences within the tech community.  http://googleblog.blogspot.com/
