Sea Launch said Wednesday it had won a contract to launch two communications satellites for Hughes Electronics Corp.'s Spaceway unit in a deal with Boeing Co., which also is building the orbiters. Seattle-based Boeing, which bought Hughes' satellite-making arm for $3.85 billion last year, owns 40% of Long Beach-based Sea Launch, an international consortium that runs a floating satellite launch platform near the equator. The companies did not disclose financial terms of the deal.

Cecilia Miguel cannot even tell you how trapped she feels, how isolated, how battered by forces she does not understand. She is a ghost few ever see or hear. Miguel is a minority within a minority, a non-Spanish speaker in a Spanish-speaking portion of an English-speaking metropolis. She speaks only Q'anjob'al, a Mayan tongue of her native Guatemala. The tiny, moon-faced woman sews by day in a garment factory and rides the bus back to her $275-a-month apartment in Los Angeles' Pico-Union area.
