HEALTH COLUMN Dear Health Pilgrims, I am sharing with you portions of an article by Kathleen McGrory from the Health Section of the Miami Herald regarding sleep. The heading is Getting Good Shuteye Can Help Shed The Pounds. When it comes to losing or maintaining a healthy weight, doctors say that sleep is as important as diet and exercise. Have you put on some extra pounds? Your lack of sleep may be to blame. Experts say there is a clear link between sleep deprivation and weight gain. The reason has to do with hormones: Sleep-deprived bodies produce high levels of ghrelin, a hormone that tells the brain when it’s time to eat. At the same time, sleep-deprived bodies create less leptin, a hormone that helps you feel full and satisfied. The result? “If you sleep less, you will feel more hungry, and you’ll go for the carb-rich food to give you a boost of energy,” say Dr. Belen Esparis, Medical Director of Mount Sinai Medical Center’s Sleep Disorders Center and Laboratory. “Nobody wants a s ...

I don't know if anyone else had seen this: From theledger.com: Teachers Face Tougher Test Standards Published: Saturday, January 25, 2014 at 12:01 a.m. Those hoping to teach in Florida schools will face a tougher road to the classroom come March. That's when a decision last week by the state Board of Education to significantly increase passing certification scores goes into effect. Florida's deputy education commissioner, Juan Copa, told The Miami Herald the change comes as part of a promise Florida made in 2010 to toughen its certification standards when it applied for $700 million in federal funds. He said about a fifth of those who take the $200 Professional Education exam are expected to fail the first time.

Government and Medicine HHS report shows ACA could help uninsured Latinos across country. A handful of outlets cover a new report from the Department of Health and Human Services that demonstrates how the Affordable Care Act can help uninsured Latinos across the country. For its part, the Washington Post (2/12, Galewitz) carries a Kaiser Health News story on an analysis, released by HHS Tuesday, which shows Latinos “make up a disproportionate share of the nation’s uninsured,” but that “most could get coverage from the Affordable Care Act or existing programs if every state expanded Medicaid.” In a statement, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said, “The health care law addresses longstanding inequalities that have affected minority communities across the nation, including lack of access to affordable health insurance coverage.” McClatchy (2/12, Ordonez, Subscription Publication) reports the analysis points out that “one in four uninsured people” across the country “are Latino.” It also ...

Attic Theatre Announces Its Summer Season A non-stop comedy, a thriller with a sense of humor and rousing musical highlight Attic Theatre's 64th season of entertaining Fox Valley audiences. “Boeing, Boeing,” written by Marc Camoletti and translated from the French by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans, is a classic French farce, complete with multiple doors and perpetual high anxiety as a result of a slew of romantic shenanigans. It will be performed June 20 – 22 and 25 – 28. The “Chicago Sun-Times” described the play as “an ideal escapist entertainment for the dog days of summer.” “Deathtrap” by Ira Levin will run July 10 – 13 and 15 – 19. When a washed-up playwright, a supportive wife, an aspiring young playwright, who has written a top notch thriller, come together in a secluded location and with a wall decorated with death instruments, tensions mount. “Deathtrap is that rarity, a comic stage thriller that provides plenty of laughs and some real spine-tingling turns,” state ...
Inspirational Gonzalez leads Ferguson in regional semis By Andre C. Fernandez The Miami Herald Rob - For M report Matt B - For HS Girls notes By Andre C. Fernandez a1fernandezguard Tabitha Gonzalez is often regarded for her mental toughness on the Ferguson girls’ basketball team. Being praised for her bravery isn’t anything new for Gonzalez. “I remember when I was 2 years old, people kept telling me I was stronger than 10-year-old boys,” Gonzalez said. Gonzalez had no choice but to be brave at that age. Not long after her second birthday, she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells. Gonzalez spent most of the next three years in and out of hospitals undergoing chemotherapy and sometimes being awakened at night to take necessary medication. Three years later, Gonzalez went into remission and has been cancer-free since. “I was little, but I still remember the smile on my mom’s face the day they said I wasn’t sick anymore,” Gonzalez said.

My amazing colleague Fred D'Aguiar's new novel drops today: CHILDREN OF PARADISE. There's a link below to a terrific review in the Miami Herald. And from Edwidge Danticat: "Fred D’Aguiar’s magnum opus. He takes a story we think we know, Jonestown, and transforms it into an even larger, yet more intimate tragedy. A book not to be missed.”
On Fred D'Aguiar's amazing new novel 'Children of Paradise.' "Through the eyes of a young girl and her mother plotting to escape, the story of the Jonestown massacre of 1978 takes on new dimensions in a surprising novel that contrasts a dreamlike style with the terrifying paranoia of the Guyana jungle compound where 909 Americans died in a murder-suicide pact. Fred D’Aguiar, a novelist, playwright and poet raised in Guyana until he was 12, reimagines the tragedy that stunned the world D’Aguiar creates a suffocating atmosphere that explores the use of charisma and religious fanaticism as tools of repression. Most powerful of all, he takes a well-documented atrocity and tells it in a new and arresting way. You can’t teach if the people won’t listen, and D’Aguiar demands that we listen." Miami Herald
Today's Miami Herald: Front page of Local and State: 2 dumb golfers from Tenn. have jewelry and cash stolen out of their golf bags because they aren't paying attention and think the golf club should take responsibility. (Actually, the article was quite sympathetic to them.) Six pages later, on page 6B: Police in Hollywood, Florida inventory their evidence room and find 94 unprocessed rape kits, some dating back to 2005. They can't explain why they weren't processed, but hypothesize that maybe the victims changed their minds or the rapists had already been arrested. Lets see, which is bigger news: money robbed from unattended golf bags, or rapists getting away with their crimes due to police incompetence. I'm sure that was a tough call for the editors of the Miami Herald.
Woman Left Brain-damaged After Bosom Implant Surgery A young woman named Linda Perez who fell into a coma last year after a devastating bosom augmentation surgery in a hospital in Florida has been allowed to go back home after spending half a year in hospital. Now, she is unable to move on her own, can only say a few words and looks like a skeleton. Doctors think she may never recover from the brain damage she incurred from the surgery. Linda,19, reportedly suffered brain damage in the hour after the bosom augmentation finished but now the doctor who performed the surgery, Dr Jacob Freiman, is filing to have access to her earlier medical records because he feels she hid key facts from him - like a complication from anesthesia [given by Dr. Mario Diaz] that she was given during the birth of her son - If she had told him about that incident, he would have approached the procedure differently. Doctor Freiman is said to have a clean record and is a board certified plastic surgeon, according to the Florida Dep ...

In 2004, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration informed Congress that enhanced side-impact protection was a priority. With safety in mind, Dorel Juvenile Group sent a petition to NHTSA asking them to consider using the side-impact test procedure that we developed (in partnership with Kettering University) for the federal regulation. The proposed rules, published in the federal register a week ago, require tests very similar to the ones that we have been conducting in our labs for nearly a decade. Read more via Miami Herald:
David Beckham has used his contracted option to buy a Major League Soccer franchise at a discount, according to a report by the Miami Herald.
In a press conference that was light on specifics and included the mayor of Miami-Dade County calling David Beckham "Mr. Beckman," the retired LA Galaxy and Manchester United star announced his long-rumored plan to bring a new MLS club to Miami. Beckham was joined by MLS commissioner Don Garber and Mayor Carlos Gimenez in making the announcement that left a lot of questions unanswered. As part of the deal that brought Beckham to MLS as a player in 2007, he was able to become the league's first former player to become an owner for a cut-rate expansion fee of $25 million. The two clubs that will begin play in 2015, Orlando City SC and New York City FC paid expansion fees of $70 million and $100 million respectively. The biggest cheer at the Perez Art Museum Miami came when Beckham said that his group (of which he is the managing partner) will not seek public funding for the downtown stadium that they plan to build for the new club. According to the Miami Herald, the preferred site is on one end of PortMiami ...

I dnt knw y ds news hs nt bn posted in fb.Justin Bieber's DUI Arraignment Set for Valentine's Day ..ds is amazin!!Justin Bieber's dopey Lamborghini drag-racing arrest last week has officially become a matter worthy of your federal tax dollars. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, a whitehouse.gov petition that calls for deporting the Canadian singer has passed its goal of 100,000 signatures. The Obama administration's admirably but ridiculously responsive rules require it to reply to such petitions when they've met their signature goal .Bieber was charged with drag-racing and DUI, a police rep told the Miami Herald. His pals — including 19-year-old R&B singer Khalil — had evidently blocked off a stretch of residential road with their cars so the 19-year-old could use it as a drag strip for his Lamborghini. Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez reportedly said Bieber tested positive for drugs. Bieber was incoherent, the police chief said. Coherent enough, perhaps: Police sources told the Herald th ...

found this comment to an article in the Miami Herald- I HIGHLY agree: West Virginia University "Winter Storm Leon?" What gives you the impression this snow storm had a name? Since when have snow events EVER had names? Hurricanes and typhoons have names, given to them by the appropriate government agency. Snow storms do NOT have names. The National Weather Service (NWS) hasn't named the snow, nor has the National Oceanographic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Neither the NWS, NOAA, nor anyone I know is referring to this weather system as "Leon." Oh, WAIT A MINUTE. You must be referring to The Weather Channel. Yes, in what can only be described as a shameless, pretentious publicity stunt, they have taken it upon themselves to start naming every snow event that comes along, and in the process they have become a bit of a laughingstock. Who knows? Maybe this summer, when things have started quieting down, they'll start naming HEAT WAVES! It makes you wonder how we ever survived the old days when snow was j ...

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald takes a look at some of the issues new GM Dennis Hickey is faced with this offseason as it relates to the team’s impending free agents. Salguero mentions that DT Randy Starks is unlikely to offer Miami a discount this offseason as he was “somewhat peeved” by the fact that he was forced to play out the 2013 season under the franchise tag. Considering that both Starks and fellow defensive tackle Paul Soliai are both set to become unrestricted free agents, it would make sense for Hickey to try to retain one of them and then insert Jared Odrick into the starting lineup to replace the other. Salguero believes that of the two, DT Paul Soliai is more likely re-sign with the Dolphins as he ”really, really doesn’t want to leave” Miami. However, it’s still unlikely that he’ll offer them much of a discount based on the fact that he and his agent, David Canter, were reportedly hoping to get a long-term extension in place at some point last year. Signing CB Brett Gr ...

Snook season begins again this weekend. MIAMI HERALD Best Bet Captain Bouncer Smith of Bouncers Dusky Fishing Charters out of Miami Beach Marina reported offshore fishing has been slow compared to most Januarys in the past because of unusual warm conditions. Recent cold fronts have dropped water temperatures and fishing is getting better. Along the beaches, tarpon are starting to show up along with a good amount of Spanish mackerel. Outside the outer reef, a few sailfish, blackfin tuna and some large kingfish to 71 pounds have been reported caught.

Good Morning everyone! Here is book for today, January 31, 2014: The Remains of Company : A Story of the Great War by James Carl Nelson, New York: St. Martin's Press, 2009, 363 pages. Haunted by an ancestor's tale of near death on a distant battlefield, James Carl Nelson set out in pursuit of the scraps of memory of his grandfather's small infantry unit. Years of travel across the world led to the retrieval of unpublished personal papers, obscure memoirs, and communications from numerous doughboys as well as original interviews of the descendants of his grandfather's comrades in arms. The result is a compelling tale of battle rooted in new primary sources, and one man's search for his grandfather's legacy in a horrifying maelstrom that is today poorly understood and nearly forgotten. The Remains of Company D follows the members of Company D, 28th Infantry Regiment, United States First Division, from enlistment to combat to the effort to recover their remains, focusing on the three major battles at Cant .. ...
A Case Against Legalized Gambling Reprinted from National Coalition Against Legalized Gambling Gambling costs far more than it benefits. Studies show that for every dollar gambling produces for a regional economy, three dollars are lost because of the economic and social costs of gambling. When government legalizes more gambling, taxpayers lose - whether they gamble or not. Gambling cannibalizes local businesses. A hundred dollars spent in a slot machine is a hundred dollars that is not spent in a local restaurant, theater or retail store. As Donald Trump told the Miami Herald, "People will spend a tremendous amount of money in casinos, money that they would normally spend on buying a refrigerator or a new car. Local businesses will suffer because they'll lose customer dollars to the casinos." Gambling triggers addiction. The more legalized gambling available, the more addictive behavior is triggered. In 1989, only 1.7% of Iowa's adults were gambling addicts, but after riverboat casinos were legalized, th ...
Looking for Love? Looking for love in all the wrong places? Maybe it's time to follow the lead of Alexander Gorbunov, who has chosen instead to let love find him -- in his sports car. For the past eight months, the 38-year-old Hollywood, Fla., man has sported a neon yellow sign in his BMW's rear window which reads, "Looking for a wife," followed by his phone number. He also drives a Hummer from time to time with a similar sign, a method he acknowledges is unconventional, yet effective. Gorbunov told the Miami Herald he fields between 15 and 20 calls and texts a day, around 80 percent of which are serious inquiries. He's hoping the sign will screen out women who don't have a sense of humor.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, it “wouldn’t be surprising” if the Dolphins pursued impending free agent RB LeGarrette Blount this offseason. Jackson points to the fact that new GM Dennis Hickey was responsible for the Buccaneers claiming Blount off of waivers from the Titans. Tampa Bay would later send Blount to the Patriots in a trade for Jeff Demps, but it’s clear that New England has gotten the better end of this deal. Even with the increase in production this season, it would make sense for prospective teams to approach Blount with caution given that signing players who are coming off of breakout seasons have ended poorly a countless number of times in the past.
Leonard Pitts hits the nail on the head. And FYI, the new Georgia House Bill 875 introduced after Tuesday's session adjourned (Remember what was going on then?) not only opens up guns in churches, it opens up college campuses, K-12 schools, and bars, and it even lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor carry of a weapon past airport security. SECOND AMENDMENT Trigger-happy in these United States of insanity Leonard Pitts My Opinion Doug Varrieur likes to shoot. Problem is, it’s 25 miles to the nearest range, where they charge $45 an hour. What’s a gun enthusiast to do? Lucky for him, Varrieur lives in Florida. Problem solved. Just erect a makeshift range in the backyard and fire away. It’s perfectly legal. Re-read that if you want. It’s just as nutty the second time around. In a story by my colleague Cammy Clark that appeared in Sunday’s Miami Herald, we learn that Varrieur, who lives on Big Pine Key, once complained to a gun shop owner about what a pain it was going to the range to shoot.

Miami Herald: "But that will illustrate the adage of one man's trash being another man's treasure because a source close to new Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht tells me Licht was going to fire Hickey from his job as the Tampa Bay director of player personnel. Hickey was with the Bucs 18 seasons, the last three as the director of player personnel. But he was not a candidate when Tampa Bay conducted a general manager search earlier this month and while he might have been retained through the May draft by the Bucs had he not gotten the Miami job, Hickey was headed out the door."

Pats director of player personnel Nick Caserio interviewed today with the Dolphins for their vacant general manager position, the Dolphins announced. The Dolphins' search has been heavily scrutinized since they parted ways with Jeff Ireland on Jan. 7. It was heavily reported Ireland and coach Joe Philbin couldn't get along, and the Miami Herald reported even more front office drama including vice president of football administration Dawn Aponte --who was in Philbin's corner -- that heightened the news of the split, all of which involved a struggle for power.

The Miami Dolphins knew wide receiver Davone Bess had been hospitalized without his consent in March 2013 so he could be evaluated and treated for emotional or psychological issues that seemed to be troubling him, but the Dolphins did not provide that information to the Browns before they traded Bess to Cleveland a month later, the Miami Herald reported Sunday. That doesn’t mean the Browns shouldn’t have found out through their own research, but it does call into question the ethics of the Dolphins, who severed ties with General Manager Jeff Ireland on Jan. 7. According to an incident report from the Broward Sheriff’s Office that the Herald obtained Friday within two hours of a standard records request, deputies were called to Bess’ Cooper City, Fla., home and found him in a violent, incoherent state while screaming, “Hide the guns,” “Where is my weed,” and “I want to get in the end zone; throw me the football.” Six officers pinned Bess down, and he was hospitalized for observation at ...

Greg Cote of the Miami Herald ".Picking against Peyton at home feels like betting against tomorrow’s sunrise, but the gut feeling here is pretty strong. Saturday-game winners in the previous round are 7-1 since 2010 in this round, a trend favoring New England. Manning is 6-11 all-time against Bill Belichick teams. John Fox is 1-6 against the Pats. NE finally has a running game and has three very good cornerbacks. And here’s something else that might seem small but isn’t: Denver is missing injured CB Chris Harris, and the Broncs’ opposing passer skyrockets when Harris isn’t on the field. That’ll clear a path for Brady to victimize 34-year-old replacement Quentin Jammer and to continue his mastery of Manning."

According to the Miami Herald, no one has emerged as a favorite for the Dolphins GM job. The Dolphins interviewed Dennis Hickey who has his time working under Tampa Bay GM Mark Dominik. Hickey has good experience in college scouting, and would help the Dolphins in terms of their college evaluation process, other then that his experience in building a team is limited at best. The Dolphins previously interviewed Lions Personnel director Brian Xander for the job. It is unclear how that interview went, but several people around the league view this role as a no win situation. With a coach on the brink of being fired, and a quarterback proving he is the next Dan Marino as well as future cap problems due to previous GM Jeff Irelands ill advised spending spree in 2013, the Dolphins are one of the more defunct franchises in the league right now.

"The Miami Herald reports Davone Bess was Baker Acted back in March of 2013. The term Baker Acted means to be hospitalized against one's own will, typically in a mental health institute. The Baker Act in Florida allows police to do this to an individual. Back in March, authorities were called to Bess' Florida home where they found the receiver incoherent and screaming about random things such as guns, drugs, and football while trying to be detained by a half-dozen men." You know what? This isn't breaking news for Rotoworld to share with everyone promoting reasons why Davone Bess is a nutcase. I'm pretty sure that means he is suffering from some sort of brain disorder, or at least was there. When he was admitted to this mental health institute, what was actually done? We know most hospitals like that just supervise. They don't run any kind of tests. They analyze to make sure the patient isn't going to hurt themselves or anyone else (thank you US medical field!), and then release them. SO what if he's suffe ...

Florida A&M University (FAMU) journalism student LaCrai Mitchell was recently named the recipient of the Barbara L. Frye Journalism Scholarship, presented by the Florida Capitol Press Corps. Mitchell, a junior, is one of 12 students to be presented with the $2,000 scholarship, which is awarded annually to graduating high school seniors and college students planning to pursue a career in journalism. This year’s winners were chosen from a record number of applicants and a competitive field of promising journalists. In the spring, Mitchell interned with WLRN- Miami Herald News and the director of the internship program recommended that she apply for the scholarship. A few months later, another internship coordinator suggested she apply as well. Their recommendations paid off. “I was excited and surprised,” Mitchell said of receiving the scholarship. The Tallahassee native said she learned at an early age that she had the talent to become an effective communicator. “I’ve always known the importance ...

The Miami Herald recently spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross about the WWE Network and some of his projects. Here are a few highlights: Origins of the Network: "The network is something that many of us have spent ample time in WWE talking about. Talk of starting a network goes all the way back to when WWE started buying wrestling libraries. I was involved in the process as one of many people involved in the process." Will he be part of the Network? "I'm sure I will be a part of it in one form or another as they have the Mid-South library, the Crockett portion of WCW, the Turner portion of WCW and the last 20 years of WWE. Whether I'm going to do anything else [new] for it obviously remains to be seen. That is WWE's call. It's a wonderful opportunity to continue to grow the brand. I think it's ahead of the curve as far as distribution is concerned."
"Road Dogg" BG James recently spoke with The Miami Herald to promote WWE's January 31st live event in Miami. Here are some highlights: WWE putting focus on tag teams again: “The credit goes to the stars themselves for sure. I think it can also be attributed to the fact we focus a little more on the tag division. We have spent a little more energy and time in developing the tag team division. I think it was sorely missed when there weren’t prominent tag teams on the landscape. I think it’s been really appreciated now that their back. We got a lot of great teams that have stepped up in the last year and think will continue to step up this year. I think there are many things it can be attributed to, but just the fact that it’s thriving and successful is awesome, especially for me to watch, because I was a tag team wrestler and love tag team wrestling.” Giving advice to the new Superstars: “I tell them to not party too much, especially nowadays.

Your Key To Happy Sailing BY DAVE BARRY This Dave Barry column was originally published in the Miami Herald on March 6, 1983 You should go sailing. Nothing is more relaxing than getting out on the open sea, far from the workaday world and decent medical care. One of the most rewarding experiences of my life was the time I sailed with a group of friends from Florida to the Bahamas, which is a distance of about 75 miles by airplane and about 325,000 miles by sailboat, due to the large amount of going up and down and sideways. Seconds after we left the dock, all of us started to feel queasy, except for my friend Buzz, who felt hungry. Buzz went downstairs and came back with the largest, greasiest plate of corned-beef hash, enough to feed a rural Peruvian village for a year, which he decided he didn't want to eat right away after all, so he set it down, waiting for his appetite to come back, and we all sat around watching it congeal under the Florida sun, until we realized that we were too sick even to commit ...

The Miami Herald Posted on Fri, Jan. 10, 2014 Fabiola Santiago: Gimenez absent on Rickenbacker cyclist safety By Fabiola Santiago fsantiagoyou can’t ride a bicycle along one of the most beautiful recreational areas of Miami-Dade without risking life and limb, then what are we doing living here? Cycling along the Rickenbacker Causeway into Virginia Key and Key Biscayne has become a game of Russian roulette. Early morning on Dec. 31, a drunk driver slammed into a group of about 20 cyclists riding east on the causeway. The 22-year-old driver, Diego Carreño of North Carolina, told police he’d been out drinking at a Miami Beach club. He was so intoxicated he was vomiting in his car and on the scene. “It was hard for him to remain standing,” Raul Echevarria, one of the cyclists who was there and took photos with his phone, told me Friday. Three cyclists ended up in the hospital, one of them with a head injury. Same day, two hours later, another cyclist was struck in front of Mast Academy, a place where ...

Bay Street Boys Could Not Buy Randol Fawkes The Miami Herald Jim Bishop February 6th, 1967 Nassau, Bahamas - The election returns came in sporadically. Neither the whites nor the Negroes believed the totals. Pindling’s P.L.P., which had 10 seats out of the 38 seats in the Assembly, hoped to add a few more. The United Bahamian Party needed only twenty seats to maintain the control. They weren't making it. A silent horror fell over the mansions in the limestone hills. A revolution was in progress. No bullets bounced off the elegant façade of Governor Sir Ralph Grey’s mansion. The work was being done with ballots. Ironically, this had been the weapon used by the Bay Street Boys to maintain power over the natives. ONE BY ONE, the natives began to win the seats. Dr. McMillan in Fort Charlotte; Maurice Moore in Grand Bahama East; Thompson in Eleuthera; Levarity in Bimini and West End; Pindling himself in South Andros. When all the returns had been counted, it was obvious that the P.L.P. had eighteen seats; ...

The Miami Herald published an editorial on Dec. 31 recommending participation in Seven50 as a way for the seven counties to work together to ensure their individual goals and objectives are achieved. Here's an excerpt: "The Seven/50 project stands for the seven South Florida counties in the region working together to make the next 50 years prosperous for all while at the same time coming up with innovative solutions to solve our most challenging problems — dealing with increasing traffic by investing in more mass transit, protecting natural resources from encroaching development with better urban planning to curb urban sprawl, growing up, not out, and strengthening coastal communities threatened by rising sea levels. There really isn’t any choice about reckoning with these challenges. They’ll smack us upside the head, one way or another."

The Miami Herald said, "tension between Ireland and coach Joe Philbin and Dawn Aponte, the team’s cap manager, contributed to Ireland’s ouster. Philbin and Aponte won the power struggle."

PEMBROKE PINES POLICE ON LOOKOUT FOR TOILET DUNKER Police are searching for a man who allegedly followed a woman into the bathroom at a Burger King on Sunday morning and pushed her head into a toilet.

DAILY DELANEY DOWNER - The Miami Herald reported Christmas Day that Omar F. Baez, a laid-off registered nurse in Hialeah Gardens, had applied for hundreds of jobs and sought help from his family to keep up with bills. “If I don’t get any job when the payments for unemployment are over, I see doom is coming for me,” Baez, 62, told the paper. “What am I going to do? Because my kids can help me, but I don’t know how long they can.” The Herald reported Baez is just one of 73,000 Floridians in the same boat, with the average jobless duration at nearly 50 weeks. "All are victims of the budget deal worked out between congressional leaders last week," the paper noted. [Miami Herald]

THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY for 27 December 2013 From BC in Ba Here's the full text of today's TGIF. CRYSTAL BALLS-UP WRITING A wildly original newspaper column requires knowing where to steal your ideas and, in 1999, I stole one of the best from Robert Steinback, then of the Miami Herald. Every year, Robert wrote a column of predictions for the coming year and considered the accuracy of his predictions from the year before. Though I copied Robert’s idea, I had to do it differently, because Robert was living in a major city of a First World country, and I was living here. Where his predictions were entirely serious, some of mine were included only to make you laugh, while others were deadly serious and, if accurate, would make anyone with any sense weep; the perennial Trinidadian challenge was to distinguish fant ...
SUSPECTED 911 INSIDER TRADING Among the reports about suspected insider trading which are mentioned in Concerning the statements of the former chairman of the Deutsche Bundesbank Ernst Welteke, their tenor in various press reports put together is as follows: German central bank president Ernst Welteke later reports that a study by his bank indicates, “There are ever clearer signs that there were activities on international financial markets that must have been carried out with the necessary expert knowledge,” not only in shares of heavily affected industries such as airlines and insurance companies, but also in gold and oil. [Daily Telegraph, 9/23/2001] His researchers have found “almost irrefutable proof of insider trading”. [Miami Herald, 9/24/2001] “If you look at movements in markets before and after the attack, it makes your brow furrow. But it is extremely difficult to really verify it.” Nevertheless, he believes that “in one or the other case it will be possible to pinpoint the source ...

7 out of 10 voters surveyed across all parties support Medical Marijuana in Florida. Many patients and their doctors find marijuana a useful medicine as part of the treatment for AIDS, cancer, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, and other ailments. Yet Florida laws treat all patients currently using medical marijuana as criminals. Doctors are presently allowed to prescribe cocaine and morphine — but not marijuana. Supporters of Medical Marijuana include: The American College of Physicians , Institute of Medicine, American Public Health Association, American Nurses Association, American Academy of HIV Medicine, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Lymphoma Foundation of America, American Medical Student Association, and the state medical societies of New York, Rhode Island, and California.

The board of the Miami Beach Community Church could generate $100 million by leasing some of its historic property to a developer. Tristar Capital wants to construct a mixed-use building on the church’s courtyard facing the Lincoln Road Mall, the Miami Herald reported. The Board of Directors at the church has chosen Tristar’s plan after listening to different offers over the last six months. The church’s congregation is expected to vote on whether to give Tristar a 50-year lease of the property after this Sunday’s services. The city would also have to sign off on any development on the historic property. Church officials say a $30,000 per month deficit could force them to close the oldest house of worship in Miami Beach if it does not move forward with the Tristar lease
WWE Divas Natalya was interviewed by the Miami Herald in a continuation on their series about women's wrestling, and the former Divas champ had some kind words to say about WWE executive Stephanie McMahon. “In WWE, Stephanie McMahon, I would vote for her to be President of the United States.

Heartbreak Hotel Written by Tommy Durden and Mae Axton. The inspiration came in 1955 when Durden spotted a Miami Herald article about a man who had committed suicide and didn't have any identification on him except a note reading, "I walk a lonely street". After having a demo made by Glen Reeves, Axton took it to the DJ convention in Nashville where she played it for Elvis. According to Axton, she offered Elvis a share of the writers' publishing ownership if the song would be his first new single release for RCA, which had bought his recording contract from Sun Records. Elvis recorded "Heartbreak Hotel" on the afternoon of January 10, 1956 at RCA Studio B in Nashville in his first recording session for RCA. On guitar were Elvis, Scotty Moore and Chet Atkins. On bass was Bill Black. Drums were played by D.J. Fontana. Floyd Cramer played piano. Backup vocals were performed by Gordon Stoker of The Jordanaires, along with Ben and Brock Speer. The engineer was Bob Ferris. There was a slight change in the lyr ...

AT SIXTEEN YEARS OLD I was charged with Aiding and Abetting Against the United States to overthrow the government.

No violence, no sex crimes and no serious drug offenses but 100% Real Life Heist. Where Elmore Leonard meets James McElroy and not since the "Thomas Crown Affair" or the 1970's "Heist," Real Life Heist author Mark Anthony Given's gritty topics from juvenile hall's "Circle Jerk City," to "Dope Sick Angel," or The Real Drug Store Cowboy, resonate with every day Americans and the rebellious spirit of America and provide a fascinating insight into a truly original American Life.

BUNCH OF CROOKES IN OUR CITY OF NORTH MIAMI! Perfect Example why the cities become bankcrupt! Days ago, a Miami Herald editorial criticizing North Miami's finances opened with this line: "It's so much easier to spend when it's other people's money, isn't it?" It must be. Because in 2012, North Miami Councilwoman Marie Steril and Deputy City Manager Dr. Lumane Claude received cash advances totaling $6,300 for a trip to Haiti. Neither submitted receipts explaining their expenses. Neither have reimbursed the city. Neither of the advances was in the City Budget. And Dr. Claude's wasn't approved by the City Manager. Rather than require either advance to be reimbursed, City Manager Johnson tells me a city vendor was solicited for donations to cover costs. Elias, Steril, & Claude in Delmas, June 2012 Cash Advances Not Repaid for Trip to Delmas, Haiti Steril, Claude, and Chief Elias traveled in June 2012 A couple of weeks ago, a city hall insider brought to my attention a trip taken from June 4-8, 2012, by Co ...

A different perspective: Every since the tragic deaths of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, I have seen so many Memes, statuses, debates, videos, etc. circling the web of Social Media. Showing videos of the accident, saying that they were at fault and this is an act of "Karma", how Roger Rodas murdered Paul Walker, and I can't help but sit here and get sick to my stomach. As these all circle the web, "posters" are forgetting about the most important aspect of the story here - two individuals have lost their lives. As thousands of fans mourn over the deaths of these two men, their families are left grieving, mourning, and re-living the tradgic accident everytime they turn on their TV's, computers, or open up a newspaper. The *** of America (us) are searching through every piece of information that is released to see if we were right about the cause of the accident, and watching the video over and over of two people being burned alive in a car. I have scrolled by every single one of you and your friends posts .. ...
The most corrupt countries Egypt not included Transparency International has published its annual list of the world’s most corrupt countries. It’s the only list of its kind and scores countries on a scale of 0 to 100, based on survey scores from experts and businesspeople and their confidence in the public sector for investment. Below are the world’s 23 worst countries for corruption. 23. Democratic Republic of Congo Thomas Mukoya / Reuters / Reuters An expert panel led by former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan looked at five deals over previous minerals struck between 2010 and 2012, and compared the amount for which the government-owned mines were sold, with independent appraisals of their values. Annan’s report found a gap of $1.36 billion, double the Congo Republic’s state annual budget for health and education. 22. Tajikistan Handout / Reuters Tajikistan’s government is characterized by “cronyism and corruption,” according to a WikiLeaks cable written by former U.S. Ambassador Richar ...

My family often asks why I always give a book along with other gifts at Christmas, birthdays and other gift giving holidays. I never felt like I answered the question well. Now I will tell them this: "I give them because they are one of life's great treasures. More than a gift of paper, ink, and binding, the present of a book spells a quick and satisfying escape, a door to an unknown world, the joy of solitude and, also in equal measure, the sweet sharing with like-minded readers." ~ Ana Veciana-Suarez (from her Miami Herald column dated 12/2/13)

MIA Herald: Seahawks dominate Saints, improve to 11-1
Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review An Amazon Best Book of the Month, November 2013: For a hefty half of her gorgeous new novel, The Valley of Amazement, Amy Tan instructs us in the finer points of life as a courtesan in early 20th century China: expect and revel in sensual descriptions of the clothes, the customs, even the not-so-niceties of catering to rich men in a very regimented society. Lulu Minturn is a white Californian who’d run away with a Chinese painter, established the best courtesan house in Shanghai and given birth to a beautiful “Eurasian” (in the parlance of the time) daughter, Violet. Soon, either because she was tricked or deceitful, Lulu abandons Violet and flees back to America; history soon is in danger of repeating itself when Violet gives birth to her own daughter. (Eventually, the scene shifts to California, where the family searches for redemption and reconciliation.) Nobody does mother-daughter angst and cross cultural conflict better than Tan, who has been literally writ ...

Miami Herald : Miami Heat player robbed at restaurant; search on for two suspects
According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Marlins recently made an offer to free agent catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, though the specifics aren’t known. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reported last week that the Red Sox offered a two-year deal to Saltalamacchia, but it’s apparently not good enough. Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe has heard from two sources that it’s “unlikely” he’ll be back with Boston next season. The Twins are said to be interested in Saltalamacchia and may be more aggressive in their bidding than Miami. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald hears that a decision could come as soon as the early part of this week.

Let me begin by saying that I think Richie Incognito needs to have consequences for his behavior. I do not agree with anything he has done to taunt, bully and hurt others. What is also important at this time to address is that this man has been acting like a bully for years, with no adequate training or guidance on what to do differently. I would bet that he has been sent mixed messages for years. I would also bet that he is a reflection of what may be going on inside of many sports teams, perhaps not as extreme, but perceived bullying and mixed messages nonetheless. As with all the bully/victim paradigm issues around the globe, this appears to not be any different. Richie Incognito will be punished and Jonathan Martin will be deemed, the victim. I want to crawl out of my skin, scream - STOP THIS NONSENSE! Stop punishing the bully and arming the victim! This is not a solution that is working - because it isn't effective! The bully/victim paradigm is not the truth. "When somebody is bullied ...

Joe Kreps commented on a link. 2 hours ago Mary Ellen Klas conveniently does not mention that Crist took in over $800,000 from as few as 20 donors, including a $250,000, a $150,000, and $100,000 and $50,000 donations. In a state where pay to play is rampant, I believe these distinctions should be brought out by the largest Newspaper in Florida. FOLLOW THE MONEY.

Leonard Pitts Jr, whom was a Pulitzer priz winning columnist, said in the Miami Herald; "Increasingly, we are a people estranged from critical thinking, divorced from logic, and alienated from objective truth." I think that eminently applies to Australia, and in particular, the ruling coalition government, in particular Tony Abbott and his front bench. More importantly, it applies to the Australian public. This is why we can't have nice things.
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, we witnessed a FEMA beta test of the extraordinary powers under COG and Rex 84, the latter a military readiness exercise designed to round-up and intern in concentration camps dissidents and other elements considered threatening to the government. “These camps are to be operated by FEMA should martial law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached,” the Miami Herald reported on July 5, 1987. “And there you have it — the real purpose of FEMA is to not only protect the government but to be its principal vehicle for martial law,

Contesting Stolen elections are won the old-fashioned way. They're stolen. State-sponsored electoral theft is official policy. It's longstanding. November 24 was no exception. Presidential elections were held. Eight candidates contested. Only two mattered. LIBRE party (Liberty and Refoundation) candidate Xiomara Castro challenged ruling National party's Juan Orlando Hernandez. The National Front of Popular Resistance (FNRP) established LIBRE. It did so following the 2009 coup. Dark Honduran and US forces collaborated. President Manuel Zalaya was ousted. Fascist governance replaced him. Hernandez represents it. Castro enjoys enormous support. Pre and post-election polls showed it. LIBRE declared victory. Honduran Supreme Electoral Tribunal officials (TSE) denied it. Everything was prearranged. Massive fraud, intimidation and vote buying anointed Hernandez president. He has no legitimacy whatever. According to Castro: "Based on exit polls that I have received from around the country, I can tell you: I am th ...

Election Law (The following piece was published in The Miami Herald) Our Right to Vote As American citizens, we are fortunate to live in the greatest democracy the world has ever known. More than anything else, it is the right to vote, to freely choose our leaders, that defines our nation. But throughout our country’s history, there have been attempts to suppress those rights. Most notably, literacy tests and poll taxes were used to suppress the vote of African-Americans and Native-Americans in some southern states as recently as the 1960s. During the 2012 general election, we witnessed the latest affront to our most basic right. The tens of thousands of Floridians who waited hours in line to cast their ballots were victims of sophisticated, partisan, political tactics drawn in the back rooms of right-wing extremists bent on suppressing Democratic vote. The effort to disenfranchise African-Americans and other Democratic voters began two years out from the presidential election. Republican Governor Ri .. ...
Miami-area police agency charged with racial profiling A young Florida black man has been stopped and questioned by police in Miami Gardens 258 times in four years, searched more than 100 times and arrested 56 times, the Miami Herald is reporting. But out of all that activity, the most serious conviction for Earl Sampson, 28, has been possession of marijuana, according to the news organization. Sixty-two times, Miami Gardens police have arrested Sampson for trespassing at the 207 Quickstop -- that's the convenience store where he works as a clerk, theHerald reports. Owner Alex Saleh, 26, says he has been looking for answers for the period of more than a year in which he's watched Sampson, other 207 Quickstop employees and customers stopped and frisked day after day by Miami Gardens police. Most of those stopped, including Sampson, are poor and black, Saleh says. Some have been stopped three times in the same day, Saleh said...
Florida couple sues city after being forced to uproot family vegetable garden Jonathan Benson Natural News December 1, 2013 Gardening-ToolsThe village of Miami Shores in Miami, Florida, brands itself as a progressive neighborhood that promotes “green living.” But local residents Hermine Ricketts and Tom Carroll have found that this is not exactly an honest designation, as village officials recently ordered them to uproot a family vegetable garden that they have been cultivating peacefully for some 17 years in their front yard, or else face daily fines of $50 per citation. The couple was ordered to remove their garden back on May 8, 2013, just one day after a controversial zoning revision was passed that suddenly prohibited the planting of vegetables in residents’ front yards. However, the same ordinance oddly allows for the front yard planting of fruit trees, fruit plants and other so-called “kitsch” items like pink flamingos and garden gnomes, which some might argue are more obtrusive. The coup ...
