Hispanos are people of Spanish descent of the 16th century-to-19th century in New Spain, in what is today the Southwestern United States, who retained a predominantly Spanish culture as it relates to their cultural region, having lived in that region since it was territorially incorporated into the United States. Their population in the American Southwest is around 1.8 million and the largest of these groups, numbering around 750,000, are the Hispanos of New Mexico, originating in Spanish and Mexican Santa Fe de Nuevo México, they have left a large impact on New Mexico’s culture and music. Many of the New Mexican Hispanos are mestizos, of mixed Hispanic ancestry, with Pueblo, Navajo and Native Mexican heritage. Other Hispanos groups from the United States include Californios and Tejanos, other similar Hispanic and Latino Americans are Chicanos, Spanish Floridians, Isleños, Puertorriqueños or Boricuas; the distinction was made to compensate for flawed U. S. Census practices in the 1930s which added people of the American Southwest as recent immigrants rather than centuries-long established citizens.

Though the word Hispano in the Spanish language could describe anyone of Spanish ancestry, when used in the English language the term refers to Hispanic and Latino Americans who have lived in the Southwestern United States for centuries, who did not cross any border into the United States, but rather had the border cross them. They have lived in the area that today is the Southwestern USA from the time that the area represented the northernmost region of the colony of New Spain; that Spanish colony mostly became Mexico upon its independence from Spain. The northernmost parts of Mexico became a part of the USA, which the USA acquired along with the existing population. Hispanos are descendants of Spanish settlers, Mexicans who arrived during the Spanish colonial period and the Mexican period, Mestizos of mixed Spanish and Native American ancestry; some Hispanos differentiate themselves culturally from the population of Mexican Americans whose ancestors arrived in the Southwest after the Mexican Revolution.

As the United States expanded westward, it annexed lands with a long-established population of Spanish-speaking settlers, who were overwhelmingly or of white Spanish ancestry. Prior to incorporation into the United States, Hispanos had enjoyed a privileged status in the society of New Spain, in post-colonial Mexico. Regional subgroups of Hispanos were named for their geographic location in the so-called "internal provinces" of New Spain: Californios in Spanish California, Mexican California Floridianos in Spanish Florida Nuevomexicanos in Spanish New Mexico, Mexican New Mexico Tejanos in Spanish Texas, Mexican Texas Another group of Hispanos, the Isleños, are named after their geographic origin in the Old World, viz. the Canary Islands. In the US today, this group is associated with the state of Louisiana. Hispano populations include Californios in California and Nevada, along with Utah and southwestern Wyoming, which had no Hispano communities, western Colorado, that had no Californio communities).

While integrated into mainstream American societies, Hispanos have retained much of their colonial culture, have absorbed several American Indian and Cajun traditions. Many Hispanos identify with waves of Mexican immigrants that arrived after these lands became part of the US. Many Hispanos those of younger generations, identify more with the mainstream population and may understand little or no Spanish. Most of them are Roman Catholic Christians. Several linguists and folklorists have studied the culture and language of some of the Hispanic communities, including Samuel G. Armistead, who studied the Isleño communities of Louisiana, Juan Bautista Rael, who studied the Nuevomexicanos communities. Californios: between 300,000 and 500,000 Isleños: 40,000 - 70,000 Nuevomexicanos: More than 750,000 Tejanos: Unknown Juan Bautista Rael White Hispanic and Latino Americans Criollo people Spanish American Hispanic

Edward Woodville, Lord Scales

Sir Edward Woodville KG was a member of the Woodville family during the Wars of the Roses. He survived the reign of Richard III in which several of his relatives were executed in a power struggle after the death of Edward IV. Exiled with Henry Tudor, he participated in Henry's capture of the throne, he was appointed Lord of the Isle of Wight, the last person to be given that title. An enthusiastic soldier, he has been called "the last knight errant" because of his devotion to the chivalrous ideal. Involved in many military adventures, he was killed in an ill-fated personal expedition to Brittany in support of Francis II, Duke of Brittany. Woodville was referred to as Lord Scales after the death of his brother Anthony Woodville, 2nd Earl Rivers, who bequeathed the Scales lands to him, he is referred to as Lord Scales in Spanish and Breton records, but he never held the baronial title. Edward was the tenth child, youngest son, of Richard Woodville, 1st Earl Rivers, his wife Jacquetta of Luxembourg, who came to prominence when their daughter Elizabeth Woodville married King Edward IV.

During the reign of his sister's husband, young Edward Woodville was among those who encouraged the king's licentious lifestyle as "promoters and companions of his vices", in the words of the Italian courtier Dominic Mancini. In 1472 he accompanied Anthony Woodville, 2nd Earl Rivers, to Brittany. Francis II, Duke of Brittany had appealed to Edward IV for support against the French, who were threatening invasion; the king sent 1000 archers with the Woodvilles. Determined Anglo-Breton resistance forced the French to withdraw. In 1475, Edward IV made him one of the Knights of the Bath. In 1480 Edward was granted control of the town of Portsmouth and the stronghold of Porchester Castle. In 1482, he joined Duke of Gloucester in his invasion of Scotland. Richard made him a knight banneret on 24 July 1482; the following year, he was commissioned to prepare an expeditionary force to be sent to France, but the king's sudden death halted this project. After the death of King Edward there was a power-struggle between the Woodvilles and Richard Duke of Gloucester, appointed as Protector of the under-age heir Edward V.

The Woodvilles were keen to have Prince Edward crowned quickly. They attempted to outmanoeuvre Richard by placing their large family in positions of power, they convinced the royal council to appoint Edward Woodville as admiral of a fleet to deal with the French naval commander Philippe de Crèvecoeur, attacking English ships in the channel. He seems to have left London to take command of the fleet shortly after Richard initiated his coup by arresting Edward's brother Anthony Woodville, 2nd Earl Rivers, at Stony Stratford. Still unaware of this development, Edward sailed with his fleet in April. Richard moved to place his supporters in control of key posts in Edward's power-base at the Isle of Wight and Porchester. By mid-May he sought to capture his fleet. Woodville was at Southampton, having just confiscated a large sum in gold coins from a merchant ship, when he was made aware of the situation. Most of his fleet surrendered to Richard, but Woodville escaped with two ships and the money, he and his men joined Henry Tudor in exile in Brittany, where he seems to have received a monthly allowance from the Duke.

Richard proclaimed himself king. He made a number of attempts to extradite the Tudor faction. Edward fought at the Battle of Bosworth. Under Henry VII he was appointed as Lord of the Isle of Wight in the first year of the new king's reign, he was given command of Porchester Castle again, along with Carisbrooke Castle. By this time he was being called "Lord Scales", coming from his brother's wife, Elizabeth de Scales, whose lands had been bequeathed to him, but which he never seems to have received. In 1486 Edward went to Spain to join with Ferdinand and Isabella in the attempt to expel the Moors and unify Spain to fulfil a vow he had made that he would participate in a crusade, he fought at the siege of Loja, where he helped to defeat the Moorish forces by leading an attack to scale the city walls. In the fight, Edward was hit in the face by a rock thrown by a defender, he was knocked unconscious and his front teeth were smashed, a disfigurement he considered a badge of honour. He was visited in hospital by the king and queen, who sympathised with him over the loss of his teeth.

According to the chronicler Andrés Bernáldes he replied, "Our Lord, who reared this fabric, has only opened a window to discern more what lies within". In the following year, back in England, he played an important role in defeating the rebellion of Lambert Simnel, when he was placed in command of the light cavalry, sent north to make first contact with the rebels, his forces harassed the rebel army in a series of skirmishes in Sherwood Forest, forcing it to slow down and giving the king time to build up his army before the main battle. He seems to have intentionally adopted the "Moorish hit-and-run tactics" of the kind he'd seen used in Spain, his cavalry joined the main royal army before the decisive Battle of Stoke. In the following year he was made a Knight of the Garter. In 1488 the Duke of Brittany appealed to Henry for help when he was once more threatened with invasion by France. Henry attempted to negotiate a settlement. Edward asked Henry to allow him to raise a force to support the Bretons.

Henry was unwilling to commit to this, so Edward collected men from the Isle of Wi

Purple Rain-Union

"Purple Rain-Union" is the sixth episode of the fourth season of the animated comedy series Bob's Burgers and the overall 51st episode, is written by Loren Bouchard and Nora Smith and directed by Tyree Dillihay. It aired on Fox in the United States on December 1, 2013; the title of the episode is a reference to the song and album Purple Rain by Prince. Linda's high school reunion is coming up, the planner has asked her and her high school band, The Tatas, to play. Linda refuses because the group's debut performance at the talent show was a disaster after they were shown up by another girl band, Bad Hair Day, who went on to achieve industry fame, it is so traumatic that Linda refuses to attend the reunion, as her classmates booed and humiliated her off the stage. Bob is relieved not to have to go. However, while singing in the shower, Linda regains her passion for performing and gets the band back together: her former high school friends and her sister, Gayle. However, Gayle only agrees to play with them if she is allowed to sing one of her songs.

Linda agrees and further convinces Gayle to come by telling her that her high school crush, Derek Dimatopolis, will be there. Linda and the Tatas rehearse, writing numerous revenge songs about the classmates who humiliated them. On the night of the reunion, Bob is dismayed to find. Linda hires a babysitter, for the evening, upsetting Tina, who expected to babysit that night. At the reunion, Linda is excited to perform until, last minute, she is told that Bad Hair Day will be performing first, the band being in town for a big concert and agreeing to drop in for the reunion. Back at the apartment, the kids try to force Jen to take them to the reunion so they can see Linda perform. Jen refuses, but the kids learn of her secret weakness: she is ticklish. Tina threatens to tickle her into submission, but Jen freaks out and accidentally punches Tina, giving her a black eye. Worried that she will be fired for this, Jen is despondent. Louise proposes that they won't tell if Jen takes them to the reunion, that they all give one another black eyes so that no one will be suspected of anything.

Meanwhile, Bob tries to hide his pimple, but it becomes the excited focus of Derek Dimatopolis, now a dermatologist, several other attendees who work in similar professions. They convince him to have a good time and help him accept his pimple as something unique and unusual. Bad Hair Day's performance is a success, Linda, snaps at Gayle, telling her that they won't be playing any of her songs. Gayle refuses to play with the band; as The Tatas get ready to perform, Linda has a flashback to the humiliating night of the talent show and flees the stage, crying. As she runs down the street and the kids see her and Jen convinces Linda that if her band is bad, she should perform because she loves it, just as Jen acknowledges that she is a terrible babysitter, but that she loves doing it. Linda apologizes to everyone and to Gayle. Rather than singing any of their revenge songs, she invites Gayle to sing her song: a sexual ode to Derek, who uncomfortably watches from the audience; the song is their classmates cheer.

As they drive home and Linda remark on the good time they had, though the kids insist on popping Bob's pimple, which they succeed in doing, to his disappointment. Bob asks where Gayle is, Linda states that Gayle found a ride home: after being enticed by her song and Gayle are hooking up in the back of his car. Pilot Viruet of The A. V. Club gave the episode A–, saying "Purple Rain-union” was undoubtedly Linda’s show but the rest of the Belchers were in fine form tonight, too; the children were stuck with terrible babysitter Jen and this annoyed Tina who had gotten used to her role as babysitter. That montage of the children punching each other so they’d all get black-eyes interspersed with Bad Hair Day’s rock n’ roll performance was an episode highlight. Meanwhile, Bob’s pimple has him regress back to hating high school but in the adult world—or the dermatologist world—the pimple makes him oddly popular and he ends up enjoying the reunion he dreaded going to; that shot of him cheering for Linda was sweet.

And Linda deserved it."Robert Ham of Paste gave the episode a 9.3 out of 10, saying "Something that came to mind while watching this episode is that while I’m still grateful that Fox has given Bob’s Burgers a chance to thrive on their vaunted Sunday night schedule, I wish they were on a network that let them play things out over a full half-hour with no commercial breaks. As undeniably great as the show is, it seems to whizz by between the ads, is over before you realize what hit you. Jokes sometimes don’t get enough time to sink in and you don’t get a lot of quiet moments. Sure, they’re filled with some amazing songs and gags and one-liners, but a little breathing room would be much appreciated." The episode was watched by a total of 3.39 million people. This made it the fourth most watched show on Animation Domination that night, losing to American Dad!, repeats of Family Guy and The Simpsons with 3.54 million.
