ARIZONA VOTE COUNT. A number of Latino voters in Arizona are calling for a federal investigation into elections irregularities. Many report not receiving early ballots or being forced to vote provisionally. Ten days after the election, there were still more than 100,000 uncounted ballots in Maricopa County, Arizona. Most of those are provisional ballots. Will the uncounted ballots impact the election of Richard Carmona to the Senate and the reelection of Sheriff Joe Arpaio? Analysts will also look into the role of the Latino vote in this election.

HEALTHIER FEASTS. As people sit down around the holiday tables for lavish Thanksgiving meals, this edition takes a look at an innovative pilot program that helped Mexican and Mexican-American women eat healthier and lose weight.

PROGRAM # 6836 12:00 PM PT
EDITION. With few hopes of economic improvements and looking at a political
system characterized by corruption, Mexican citizens see the return of the PRI
party to power with indifference. Official data report that during the CalderÃ³n
presidential term, the economy grew on average 1.66 percent of the gross
domestic product, the lowest level in 24 years. The press reports unauthorized
spending from the Presidential Office and the Secretary of Public Security,
while areas such as education, health, agriculture, and science stopped
receiving funds that were authorized. Governors of all political parties have
gone into debt, with a total of 360 billion pesos. Martha Elena RamÃrez hosts
Voz PÃºblica from Mexico city.
