Calendars Raise Awareness for Here’s Help, A Safe Haven for Newborns and Friends Forever Rescue and the Jackson Memorial Burn Center

South Florida Firefighter hotties will be “Burning Up” for your love and community support at the 2016 edition unveiling of the South Florida Firefighters Calendar presented by One Beat CPR + AED. Ladies drink for free from 9pm to 3am, and Saturday, August 29th, 2015 at Murphy’s Law Irish Pub at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at 10:00 PM. The Calendar raises awareness for Here’s Help, A Safe Haven for Newborns, Friends Forever Pet Rescue, and University of Miami Jackson Memorial Burn Center.

For the past 24 years, the South Florida Firefighters Calendar has been one of America’s top firefighter calendars. But more importantly, it has raised thousands of dollars for many of South Florida’s charitable causes.

As the calendar continues to grow, there are opportunities which require greater energy and effort. As a result, we are pleased to announce reunification with our presenting sponsor from prior years, One Beat CPR + AED, and a new operational plan effective August 26th, 2015. This new focus will allow the Calendar to achieve greater heights and have a bigger impact on our local communities.

For over 15 years, One Beat CPR + AED has been a strong voice in raising awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, CPR, and Public defibrillator programs in the tri-county area. They offer emergency resuscitative care certification training and are authorized by the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Safety Health Institute (ASHI).

The South Florida Firefighters Calendar will continue to advocate and raise funds for the charities it’s been affiliated with; however, we are excited to announce we have added CPR and AED awareness to our core initiatives. We’d like to thank our sponsors, participants, fans, and volunteers for your faithful support and commitment over the years and we look forward to sharing the upcoming changes with you

For a woman to allow herself to surrender to being pleased by a man (or a woman), to lay down and spread her legs without concern of what she smells like, if she’ll have an orgasm, if she’s taking too long, if the man is happy or any thought that takes her away from the present moment, is where magic happens.

We’re facilitating a class in Fort Lauderdale in a beautiful, private suite at The Atlantic Hotel & Spa where we’re teaching women how to surrender to receiving pleasure (along with other things) from men, and we’re teaching men how to pay acute attention to and please women.

This is a co-ed class.

Broward Cultural Division, The Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC) and ArtServe announce the return of the very successful Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute (AEI). Artists of all disciplines are encouraged to attend, including but not limited to sculptors, illustrators, metalworkers, writers, dancers, jewelers, musicians, performance artists, media/filmmakers, photographers, designers and all interdisciplinary artists. Artists residing in any county are invited and welcome to attend.

AEI is a course of study designed to assist individual artists by cultivating and advancing their business skills, and helping them to strengthen their operating infrastructure and expand their business. To date, more than 500 South Florida artists have graduated from the Institute, and many with exceptional success stories that follow.

Registrants will receive an AEI course book; an indispensable resource for artists. Developed by CPAC, the course book features exercises and readings to prepare for each session, and is tailored to the specific needs of artist entrepreneurs.

Designed to help artists operate in the marketplace more successfully, the AEI course curriculum covers all aspects of developing an artistic business. It helps identify and develop a personal brand, develop strategies for communicating with target markets, raise capital and identify a variety of tools for protecting one’s work legally. The curriculum offers critical support, enabling artists to contribute to strengthening the vitality of the larger urban arts and culture sector. Sessions include a mix of lectures, panels, group discussions and practical exercises.

The Business Plan Clinic’s topics, Working Effectively with Lenders and Developing a Brand, will guide participants through preparation of a simple business plan, an essential tool for any artist. In addition, participants will learn how to work effectively with lenders to obtain financial support.

View the Artist as an Entrepreneur webpage for more information about the course and its history, and read news coverage from past years.

EF Tryouts will test players in a combine setting while simultaneously helping them develop their game by teaming up with former NFL Pro Chris Chambers and his staff of quality coaches.

European Football rules allow 2 American passport players also known as import players on the field each play, yet teams can have an unlimited amount of import players on their roster. In order to fill the roster with the best available import players, teams are trying to connect to coaches and former players in the US but have found it to be difficult. With little available knowledge being made about players who are brought in from abroad and being overseas, the ability to be linked to quality players is not always easy. EF Tryouts aim to build the bridge that will connect US players to European coaches because they believe that every player deserves an opportunity to reach their goals and achieve the dream at playing football at the highest level possible.

Testing will consist of Combine Drills, which includes 40 yard dash, 15 yard Shuttle Run, Broad Jump, Vertical Jump and Med Ball Toss, alongside Strength Drills, Individual Drills, 1 on 1’s and 7 on 7’s. Participants will be able to showcase their skills while scouts from The New Yorker Lions, Oldenburg Knights, Falcons Cologne, Galaxy Frankfurt and Helsinki Roosters look for fresh talent to add to their growing teams.

As part of the camp, all sessions during the try out will be filmed and players will be able to send in their tapes to qualify for the “Hotlist” which will be forwarded to all teams in Europe. Those who make the list will be given assistance in actively promoting their skills to all European teams to help them achieve the next step.

Pre-registration at http://www.eftryouts.com is only $50, while walk-ins will be $60.

Marlins Think Tank Week
May 1-2 and May 5-6
Elementary and Middle Schools across Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties

The Marlins Think Tank is an online curriculum-enhancement program that utilizes the Miami Marlins as the basis for learning. Marlins Think Tank aims to enrich the learning experiences of children in grades 4-6 by linking baseball to the curriculum areas of writing, language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, and health & fitness. The program provides lesson plans which meet Common Core State Standards as adopted by the Florida Department of Education, with the Miami Marlins as the lesson theme.

All 4th-6th grade classrooms in South Florida are eligible to receive a visit from Miami Marlins players, coaches and broadcasters during Marlins Think Tank Week. To participate in the contest, classrooms complete a lesson plan and submit it to the Miami Marlins. This year, 16 classrooms were selected at random as winners of the contest. During Think Tank Week, the entire 25-man roster canvases elementary and middle schools across South Florida.

Marlins Ayudan (Spanish for “help”) is the signature outreach initiative of the Miami Marlins. The purpose of Marlins Ayudan is to provide a sustainable corps of volunteers willing and ready to effectuate positive change in the South Florida community. It is the fabric of the Club’s corporate culture and engages every front office employee with schools and charities throughout South Florida. The goal of Marlins Ayudan is to leave a lasting legacy through impactful service activities that tackle the community’s most pressing needs. The three-tier Ayudan methodology consists of organizational service days, team events and individual volunteer opportunities. Since its inception in 2010, Marlins Ayudan has contributed over 22,000 hours of service and established partnerships and traditions of giving that inspire employees to pursue their passions and contribute their time and talents year-round.
