History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Florida historian Cesar A. Becerra on the next August 12 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at https://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBecerra.

Cesar A. Becerra is the author of Orange Blossom 2.0, a soon-to-be-released novel debuting in conjunction with the City of Miami’s 125th anniversary. Orange Blossom 2.0 is based on Becerra’s decades of research that tells the true story of the founding of Miami and the remarkable contributions of landowner, developer and savvy businesswoman Mary Brickell who seems to have been largely overlooked and overshadowed in the pages of our past. The book is available for purchase at www.sofloweird.com/product-page/orange-blossom-2-0

A South Florida historian who’s taken part in chronicling and sharing the stories of the region for more than two decades, Becerra is the author of half a dozen books ranging from hiking the Appalachian Trail to the logging history of the Big Cypress Preserve. Becerra is an avid explorer who drove through all 50 states in a one-year road trip to rediscover America for The Travel Channel. He has also hiked the 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, in 388 days through 14 states and 4 seasons. Becerra is former publisher of The Everglade Magazine, an award winning publication printed during Everglades National Park’s 50th anniversary. He has walked, hiked, slogged, canoed, kayaked, airboated and swamp buggied all across the Everglades. In 1997, The Miami Herald named him an “Everglades Evangelist.” Cesar’s love for the past and sense of adventure is where his two worlds unite. He has a penchant for hidden history and knows no boundaries or distances when it comes to searching for it.

Becerra joins previous novelists Dr. Joe Knetsch and Y.M. Masson, architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

Guests are all Ftf alumni—both past and present, featuring performers, directors, designers, etc.—all the kinds of people who make Ftf possible. This is our way of celebrating our great and talented artists both on stage and off—and it’s a gig in the pandemic!

This episode features FTF cast member O’Neil Delapenha!

Cost: Free

My State MLS, the first nationwide Multiple Listing Service of its kind with agents in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, is hosting free webinars in July, August and September for real estate professionals looking to grow their career and market their listings with an MLS that caters to their specific needs.

The webinars will introduce real estate professionals to My State MLS’s new features, including MLS Affiliate and MH Authority. It will also show attendees how to create video content with Facebook Live. The September webinars will give the audience a refresher on real estate basics, including how to market themselves and how to expand their business.

All webinars take place on Thursdays from 2-3 p.m. ET. Please see the webinar schedule and registration details below:

What is MH Authority? – July 22, 2-3 p.m. ET
Among a shortage of affordable housing options, buyers are increasingly turning to mobile and manufactured homes. However, most consumer real estate websites treat manufactured housing as an afterthought, and sites that are built for mobile/manufactured listings are outdated and riddled with inaccurate listings. That’s why My State MLS created MH Authority, the ultimate consumer-facing source for mobile/manufactured listings. It’s time to make the manufactured housing process easier for buyers, sellers, and professionals. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Going Live – Introduction to Facebook Live for Real Estate – Aug. 5, 2-3 p.m. ET
Creating video content is no longer an optional boost to a marketing strategy – it’s critical for success. Videos receive better social media engagement, increase email open rates, and can even improve SEO. With live streaming services like Facebook Live, real estate professionals don’t even need fancy gear or a lengthy script to get started. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Dear Dave – Advice for Your (Customer) Relationships – Aug. 19, 2-3 p.m. ET
Join My State MLS for sizzling tips on how to keep cool while trying to win new listings, ride the wave of showings and buyer inquiries and heat up your marketing strategy for the best summer yet. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Back to School Series – 2-3 p.m. ET
This September, it’s time to go back to school. Join My State MLS live every Thursday at 2 p.m. ET to brush up on the basics. Attendees will learn how to take their real estate career to the next level.
Sept. 2 – Continuing Education (CE) and Beyond: David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
Sept. 9 – Becoming A Broker: David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
Sept. 16 – Marketing Yourself: Amanda Sternklar, marketing director for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
Sept. 23 – Expanding Your Business: David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring Dr. Joe Knetsch 7/8/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring Dr. Joe Knetsch
Thursday, 07/08/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom session

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Florida historian Dr. Joe Knetsch on the next July 8 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorKnetsch.

Knetsch is the co-author with Pamela Gibson of the recently released Florida in World War I (Arcadia Publishing/The History Press, ISBN: 978-1467148290), a historical deep dive into the role a sparsely populated and largely rural Florida played as America plunged into World War I. The book delves into the state’s sacrifices and contributions with a look at its naval accomplishments – the proud USS Florida, too often mentioned as a mere adjunct to the Atlantic Fleet, receives a just accounting, as does the utterly devastating loss of the USS Tampa, the highest death toll the navy suffered in the war. Sunshine State foresters served critical roles abroad, and local libraries became essential hubs for promoting rationing and reporting news from overseas. Floridian aid workers and soldiers training for departure were stricken with the Spanish flu, a pandemic that shook the globe with force equal to the war itself.

Dr. Joe Knetsch is the author of more than 200 articles and 12 books concerning Florida history. This is his sixth book for Arcadia/The History Press and covers an area in which he has a strong interest. He has been a constant reviewer of military history books for the Journal of America’s Military Past and other professional journals. He holds a doctorate from Florida State University and, for 28 years, was the historian for the Division of State Lands, Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Since his retirement, he has continued to research and publish history. He lives in Tallahassee with his wife, Linda, and their five cats. Knetsch’s works are available through amazon.com and www.arcadiapublishing.com.

Knetsch joins novelist Y.M. Masson, architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

Pompano Beach Arts presents Karina Iglesias and the Nu-Thang 6/19/21

Pompano Beach Arts presents Karina Iglesias and the Nu-Thang

WHO: Karina Iglesias and the Nu-Thang

WHAT: A virtual concert

WHERE: from the Pompano Beach Cultural Center

WHEN: Saturday June 19, from 8 to 9:30 PM

WHY:In 2013, Karina was a contestant on NBC’s #1 Hit TV Show, The Voice. She made it to the Top 16 on the live shows. She was originally on Adam Levine’s team but was later stolen by Shakira after her epic performance of “Its a man’s, man’s, man’s world” which turned into a YouTube sensation. With her highly-focused artistic vision, rich cultural background and proclivity for harnessing a wide range of production techniques, Karina Iglesias brings forth a strong element of innovation and heralds a much-needed return to the authenticity of pure soul music.

Born and raised in Miami, Florida to Honduran parents, Karina Iglesias’ sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her character and forged her individuality as an artist. With a style equally informed by rhythm and blues, boleros, gospel and hip-hop Karina delivers her performances with the intimacy of a deep soul crooner and the conviction and drive of a dauntless female singer/songwriter.

A veteran of the Miami live music scene, Karina began writing songs during the time she started working extensively with local bands. It soon became apparent that through composing original material, her true artistic identity had emerged. Her emotionally charged and deeply personal lyrics now revealed a depth of character and vulnerability that can only be conveyed when a singer truly connects with their song. Hosted by Tamara G of WLYF 101.5

TICKETS: Available for $15 at http://pompanobeacharts.org/programs/music-series
Note: Tickets are valid for the following two weeks.
The final three concerts in the series are available for $37.50

National Pink Day Summer Breast Cancer Awareness 6/23/21

National Pink Day Summer Breast Cancer Awareness

Cost: No Cost

On this National Pink Day, June 23rd, The Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative (WBHI)— a leader in disease prevention and early detection community outreach— invites women to “Mask Up and Get Your Mammogram”, following healthcare guidance while ensuring timely screenings delayed by the pandemic.

Women are encouraged to contact WBHI to schedule their mammogram at no cost by calling 305-825-4081. Valued partner Jackson Health System will also be providing heart screenings, presenting a more comprehensive preventive care approach. As WBHI’s community partner that cares deeply about the community, Fresco y Más in Hialeah will host the breast and heart screenings to be held on National Pink Day, June 23rd by appointment only.

Everyone near and far is invited to support the campaign with pink inspired images and messages, and the hashtag #WBHIPinkDay by posting on social media and tagging Facebook @TheWBHI and Instagram @WBHI on National Pink Day, June 23rd for awareness and remembrance.

With pink being the color for breast cancer, WBHI’s summer breast cancer awareness campaign on National Pink Day helps women access critical resources to help beat the odds of breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer over their lifetime; and the death rate has increased. Over the course of the pandemic, mammogram utilization decreased as much as 80%. Delayed, or missed cancer screenings could mean diagnosis at a later stage with a poorer prognosis.

“Our summer breast cancer campaign on National Pink Day reminds women it’s time to ‘Mask Up and Get Your Mammogram’, practicing preventive care while protecting our healthcare heroes in clinical settings,” states Andrea Ivory, WBHI’s Founder and Executive Director. “Breast cancer is diagnosed year-round, but the good news is that early detection, and disease deterrent lifestyles change and saves lives.

Disease prevention and early detection are critical to fostering healthy communities. WBHI is a leader in providing breast and heart health education and resources through a comprehensive strategy to all communities in need in South Florida.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Broward County novelist Y.M. Masson on the next June 10 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorMasson.

Masson is the author of When Paris Was Dark (ISBN 978-1-946886-09-5), a story of a young boy’s fear, courage, despair and determination during the World War II German occupation of France. The tale mirrors Masson’ own experiences during this turbulent time. It won third place in the Royal Palm Literary Awards from the Florida Writers Association 2018 competition.

As a young boy Y. M. Masson (Yves) struggled through four years of hardship under German occupation of Paris until he was liberated by the American Third Army. Twenty years later, after having served in the French army in North Africa during the French-Algerian war, he left France for New York City and became a United States citizen in the early seventies. After working as a marketing executive in corporate America, and then running his own consulting business, Masson turned to the arts. He is an accomplished portrait artist, but loves to share his life experiences with his readers. He knows what war does to people and especially to children. His ability to describe their daily fears, their devastating hunger, and the despair of deprivation draws his audience into their conflict.

Masson’s other novels include The War Inside His Mind (ISBN: 978-1-946886-13-2) and Never Give Up (ISBN 978-1-946886-14-9). All works are available at his website at www.ymmassonauthor.com.

Masson joins architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February.

The Everglades Foundation and Florida Realtors® Host Virtual Panel, “Florida Real Estate Depends On Everglades Restoration” 5/17/21

The Everglades Foundation and Florida Realtors® Host Virtual Panel, “Florida Real Estate Depends On Everglades Restoration”
Monday, 05/17/2021-, 10:00 am-11:00 am
Website
Cost: free

For almost 30 years, The Everglades Foundation, with the support of organizations like the Florida Realtors®, whose 200,000 members represent Florida’s largest trade association, has been working to restore the vital Everglades ecosystem. This FREE Zoom event, open to the general public, brings together the top leadership of The Everglades Foundation and Florida Realtors® for an in-depth discussion on how Florida Real Estate Depends on Everglades Restoration.

Florida’s real estate industry depends on clean water – and clean water depends on Everglades restoration. From luxury waterfront condos along Florida’s coasts, or single-family homes in suburban areas close to the state’s interior, the Everglades has a significant impact on quality of life and real estate valuations. The Everglades buffers Florida properties from storm surge, provides 9 million residents with clean drinking water, and supports the state’s tourism, recreation, and real estate-based economy. Everglades restoration is also the key to preventing the discharge of polluted water from Lake Okeechobee that has resulted in toxic algae blooms for the last four of five years.

Green Space Miami, whose mission is to be a catalyst for action through community partnership and collaborations, is the Green Family Foundation’s new art space guided by the foundation’s principles of inclusion, community empowerment and education. Doucet and Arboite are two of the ten awardees of the inaugural Green Space Miami grant.

What is PMP Certification?
PMP certification is one of the most valued and sought after qualifications in project management today. The Project Management Professional (PMP) program from PMI stands for a professional designation that helps demonstrate an individual’s knowledge, skills, and abilities as a project manager.

It also implies that the projects are done following high-quality project management standards that play a vital role in the competitive global business arena. Moreover, it is essential to meet the customers’ growing needs who demand better products and faster services.

The PMP exam changes for 2021 make the exam 50% waterfall and 50% agile. In addition, the new exam will focus on the 3 domains- PEOPLE, PROCESS, and BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring Arthur Jay Marcus 5/13/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring Arthur Jay Marcus
Thursday, 05/13/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature writer Arthur Jay Marcus on the next May 13 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorMarcus.

Arthur Jay Marcus, an architect, photographer and historic preservation consultant, is the author of The Architecture of Whimsy: Mid-20th-Century Architecture in South Florida, a lexicon examining the quixotic architectural expressions fund on select Mid-20th-Century Modern commercial buildings in South Florida. Showcasing the work of 13 noted architects from Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale, it highlights the decorative details and gestures – swooping overhangs, brise soleil, cheese holes and arches and screening – that expressed the era’s shiny optimism and the region’s carefree resort culture. With brief biographies of architects and street maps pinpointing the location of each building, this book offers tourists, architects, history buffs and preservationist a new context and appreciation for these works of art, many of which are endangered. The book is available on Amazon.

Architecture and photography have been Marcus’ life-long passions from an early age. While maintaining an architectural studio in South Beach for 24 years prior to moving to Fort Lauderdale about six years ago, Marcus continued to take photographs of the south Florida architectural environment. His practice currently specializes in historic preservation consulting. A native of Philadelphia, Marcus graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Temple University and a Master of Architecture degree from Carnegie Mellon University.

Marcus joins historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

In compliance with local and state health guidelines, visitors to History Fort Lauderdale will be required to wear a mask, have a digital temperature reading and practice safe social distancing of six feet apart.

Funding Arts Broward (FAB), leading arts ambassadors in Broward County, will present A Night at the NSU Art Museum, a virtual program, on Monday, April 19, at 5:30 p.m. Hosted by Bonnie Clearwater, FAB member and director and chief curator of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, this free “friend”raiser program will feature a tour of the museum’s newest exhibit, “The World of Anna Sui.” The presentation will also introduce “Eric N. Mack: Lemme Walk Across the Room” and “Iké Udé: Select Portraits,” two other exhibits on display. A Q & A session will follow the tour and presentation.

Dedicated to supporting, sustaining and enriching the arts in our community, FAB creates captivating programming, entertainment and events for its members and the public that spotlights our region’s unique cultural offerings.
This is the eighth installment of the FAB Presents virtual pop-up series. Previous programs are available on FAB’s YouTube channel.

Thematically arranged, the exhibition explores Sui’s lifelong engagement with an array of ‘archetypes’ including the rock star, the schoolgirl, the punk, nomads, and surfers — motifs that are featured throughout her work. Hallmark outfits include Sui’s “Silver Peruvian Ensemble” and iconic sequined silk organza “Babydoll Dress” from Spring 1994. Items on view also include fashions worn by Sui’s personal style icons who include Anita Pallenberg and Jane Holzer.

The range of different styles on display emphasize Anna Sui’s consistent design approach as she incorporates her current passions into every garment. As it celebrates American fashion, the exhibition also provides a fascinating guide to the history of American pop culture, and an inside look into the creative process and unique world view of this iconic designer whose daring and experimental approach to design has become a mainstay of the international fashion scene.

“The World of Anna Sui” is organized by the Fashion and Textile Museum, London and is curated by Dennis Nothdruft.

James Beard Award “Rising Star Chef of the Year” semifinalist Nando Chang is pleased to announce that his family’s highly acclaimed Nikkei-inspired restaurant Itamae, will host a series of collaborative dinners aimed to showcase the talents of brilliant culinarians, as well as pay tribute to the cultures and cuisines that make up the 305.

To kick things off, the restaurant has tapped local Chef Timon Balloo, the culinary visionary behind Sugarcane Raw Bar & Grill, Mrs. Balloo at The Wharf Fort Lauderdale, and the beloved and sorely missed Balloo Restaurant. The talented toque – who has received several James Beard Award nominations including “Best Chef: South” and “Best New Restaurant” for Sugarcane – will join forces with the team at Itamae to create an unforgettable menu that blends each chef’s unique style and heritage. Itamae’s refined Peruvian-Japanese flavors will be at play with Timon’s more rustic Asian-Caribbean cookery.

The a la carte dinner will take place on Sunday, April 25 beginning at 7PM. A nod to both Itamae and Balloo Restaurant, the menu features five tantalizing dishes. Standouts include Curry Calabaza Tiradito – black lime, sarza criolla, huacatay-cilantro leche de tigre; Nikkei Chili Crab – lump crab, ají rocoto, spiced torrejitas; and Mussels – curry amarillo. The restaurant’s natural, low intervention wine list created by Wine Director Karina Iglesias, will also be on offer.

A virtual Earth Day event that brings together top medical minds and environmental experts to discuss how water quality impacts the overall wellness and health of Florida’s communities.

Every Floridian and American at large is affected by adverse environmental issues, especially those which pertain to bodies of water.

The panel will also dive into the importance of Everglades restoration and ensuring clean water for millions of Floridians.

Panelists: Eric Eikenberg, CEO of The Everglades Foundation; Robert L. Lord Jr., President of Cleveland Clinic Martin Health; Dr. Mary Beth Saunders, D.O., Infectious Disease Specialist at Lee Health; and Dr. Carl Ruthman, a Pulmonary & Critical Care Physician at NCH Community Hospital, will delve deep into issues surrounding environmental health and how toxic algae, red tide and other environmental scourges impact the medical status of communities. They will also explore climate change’s effect in South Florida as well as the implications of an unhealthy environment. Moderated by Dr. Steve Davis, Senior Ecologist and Vice President of Communications & Engagement for The Everglades Foundation.

Cost: Free

Join the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) for a virtual conversation with artists Laz Ojalde and Natalie Zlamalova, the principles of Studio AMLgMATD, with “Art on the Plaza” Curator Amanda Sanfilippo Long about their collaborative art practice and the background of their special Art On The Plaza project.

Studio AMLgMATD is a Miami-based collaborative studio established by Laz Ojalde and Natalie Zlamalova in 2014. Studio AMLgMATD experiments in works of art, design objects, and environments reflect their love of unusual and overlooked materials. AMLgMATD’s method consists of incorporating historical and geographical research into their visual language, playing with the sense of nostalgia, the application of familiar materials onto new forms and unexplored materials into familiar settings, and redefining their surroundings with humor.

In January 2021, the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) launched “Art on the Plaza,” a year-long series of newly commissioned, temporary public artworks by Miami-based artists on MOCA Plaza. Featured artists include: Reginald O’Neal, Studio AMLgMATD (Laz Ojalde and Natalie Zlamalova), a collaborative presentation by Morel Doucet and Stephen Arboite, Nice N’ Easy (Allison Matherly & Jeffrey Noble) and Najja Moon. The museum will host a series of virtual programs to coincide with the art installations throughout the year.

MOCA’s “Art on the Plaza” program is made possible with major support from the NMCRA. Completed in October 2018, the MOCA Plaza renovation was made possible due to a grant from the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency (NMCRA) to cover construction costs of nearly 33,000-sq.-ft. of brick pavers, new landscaping, new LED lights and necessary equipment.

Actors’ Playhouse and Palm Beach Dramaworks have joined forces to present a virtual coproduction of The Belle of Amherst by William Luce.

Margery Lowe portrays the enigmatic poet and William Hayes directs.

Tickets are $30 and all proceeds will benefit PBD and Actors’ Playhouse, supplying much-needed revenue at a time when the theatres are earning no income. Once a ticket is purchased, the play can be viewed at the ticket holder’s convenience any time from April 2nd through April 6th.

Cost: $15

Ten Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, 2 NAACP Image Awards, and a Soul Train Award, Take 6 is the most awarded a cappella group in history. Any singer who aspires for vocal excellence cannot overlook the contributions these men have made to music. Take 6 has performed with and won praise from such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ben E. King, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Al Jarreau, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, and Whitney Houston, to name a very few. Some of the honors Take 6 has enjoyed over the past few years include being chosen as the first musical group to perform in Cuba at the normalization of relations between our two countries, and their induction into The Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

What makes the music and the group last this long? The answers are direct and simple: faith, friendship, respect, and love of music. The multi-platinum selling sextet says of their longevity, “We are family in the sense that we care deeply about each other, which helps keep us together. We have times when it gets tough, but we pull together because of the love and respect we have for one another. The group’s willingness to let members do other projects also adds to the brand and the cohesiveness of the group,” says Joey Kibble. Kibble is a motivational speaker and Alvin Chea does voiceover work session-singing on dozens of TV shows, feature films and commercials with his uniquely recognizable bass vocals. Two of the members have solo projects in the works, others produce outside acts, Mark Kibble arranges for A-list artists and McKnight is working on a documentary. “It adds even more credibility and depth to the group as a whole, enriched by each of our outside skills and experiences,” Kibble adds.

Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature writer/historian John Bailey on the next April 8 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBailey.

Bailey is author of A New River Runs Through It, an exciting, comprehensive story of a river and the city that grew up along its banks. Beginning with the legend of how the river acquired its name, this narrative brings to life the story of the rugged men and women who settled along it and built the city of Fort Lauderdale into a world class international business and financial center. It ends with the latest events: the recent expansion of rail commuter service, the city’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic, and a look forward to our future. The book is available on Amazon and in signed editions at History Fort Lauderdale’s Museum Shop.

In 1946, at the age of nine, John Bailey arrived at the New River with his parents. He attended several of the area’s different schools – West Side, Davie, Naval Air, Central, and Fort Lauderdale High School. Through his various local teachers, Bailey developed an abiding interest in his home town. Many of his personal experiences of growing-up and living along the River are sprinkled throughout this book. His previous best selling history books include Sentinel of the Jersey Cape, The Story of the Cape May Lighthouse, Cape Island, The Jewel of the Jersey Shore and Juet’s Journal, Henry Hudson’s Explorations on the Half Moon.

Bailey joins Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

Cost: Free

On March 24 at 7:00 p.m., MOCA will host “Conversations at MOCA: Electric Tree with Mark Handforth and Adler Guerrier,” virtually via Zoom. During the event, artists Mark Handforth and Adler Guerrier will speak about their art practice in the public realm. As artists who recently accomplished public art projects in North Miami, they will discuss their method of bringing a public art project to life. The conversation will take us through all the major steps of the process, from conceptual ideas to development and to working with curators, museums, and governmental agencies. Moderated by Dehja Carrington, she will drive the artists elaborate about their past, present, future projects and their process.

In addition to the conversation, MOCA will premiere Making of the Electric Tree, a short documentary produced by MOCA. The documentary highlights Mark Handforth’s journey to bring the Electric Tree public art project to north Miami.

Mark Handforth was born in Hong Kong in 1969 and grew up in England. He lives and works in Miami. Based in Miami for over 20 years, Mark Handforth is profoundly tied to the legacy of the 20th-century American avant-garde. He freely makes use of a formal vocabulary borrowed from Ready-Made, Minimalist, or Pop Art, which he confronts with an iconography often derived from the urban environment. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Art in Frankfurt and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. He is internationally acclaimed for his installations in the public spaces. His large-scale sculptures have been displayed in Central Park in New York, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the MCA in Chicago, and during the FIAC offsite event in Paris. Mark Handforth has also received public commissions from the cities of Paris (Porte de Bagnolet) and Zurich (Tessinerplatz).

Adler Guerrier was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and currently resides and works in Miami, FL, where he received a BFA at the New World School of the Arts. Guerrier recently had a solo exhibition at Perez Art Museum Miami, Miami, FL. He has exhibited work at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, FL; The Bass Museum of Art, Miami, FL; Harn Musem of Art, Gainesville, FL; and The Whitney Biennial 2008. His works can be found in public collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, NY.

Dan Tepfer in “Bach to the Future”

On Saturday, March 20 at 8 PM EDT (GMT – 4:00), the astonishing pianistic and technological talent of Dan Tepfer will be on display as he follows the arc of J.S. Bach and his impact on modern jazz in “Bach to the Future,” an incredible journey. This concert, followed by a Meet & Greet with the artist, is being presented as an exclusive livestreamed experience.

Dan Tepfer is one of this generation’s most extraordinary and brilliant talents, earning an international reputation as a pianist-composer and AI innovator with wide-ranging ambition and individualism. By looking at his tour schedule, it’s impossible to predict what Dan will do next. He has performed around the world with some of the leading lights in jazz and classical music, spending a decade as sidekick to the late, legendary alto saxophonist, Lee Konitz, and then becoming a favored accompanist to soprano Renée Fleming.

Whether it is his extraordinary original and improvisational expressions of Bach’s Goldberg Variations or the ingenious intersection between science and art in Natural Machines, Dan Tepfer unfailingly thrills and astounds.

On Friday, March 26 at 7:00 p.m., the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) presents Melanie Charles in its third edition of Virtual Jazz at MOCA. Melanie Charles is a Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter and flutist of Haitian descent, with a creative fluidity spanning Jazz, soul, experimental, and Haitian roots music.

Viewers and their whole families do not have to leave the comfort of their homes to enjoy her sound.

Charles creates a space where tradition meets present time, using Roland SPs, loop pedals, and the flute to blur the lines between and among social classes, cultures, genders, and theories to create a world where opposing elements can co-exist. Her recent television appearances include Good Morning America, SNL, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Since the onset of COVID-19, MOCA suspended the Jazz at MOCA concert series due to health protocols.

The Rotary Club of Weston will host its 2021 Virtual Drawdown Raffle on Thursday, March 18 for a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize. All proceeds will benefit the Rotary Club of Weston’s Student Scholarship Fund. Longtime sponsor Acuderm is serving as the Title Sponsor for the 2021 Virtual Drawdown Raffle.

In this raffle, it’s better to be last! There will be 400 tickets numbered from 1-400, and each ticket has a respective ticket in a raffle drum. The tickets will be randomly pulled, and the goal is to be the last number pulled. As numbers are pulled out, they are eliminated. The last five people can decide if they want to split the $10,000 prize or go for broke. As the last five are eliminated they can make that decision, but if they go for broke the only ping pong ball left will identify the winner of the $10,000 Grand Prize.

The Rotary Club of Weston will also be hosting its FHVlegal.com Golf Classic in April, which will also benefit the Student Scholarship Fund.

Junior Achievement of South Florida launches Girls Rule – one amazing initiative and two exciting virtual events that celebrate, empower, and inspire women and girls.

Girls Rule with Title Sponsor Comerica Bank and Presenting Sponsor Bluegreen Vacations, kicks off with The Girls Rule Launch Event on Tuesday, March 16, from noon-1:15 p.m. “We are bringing together today’s resilient and forward-thinking women together to connect around a common vision to transform and advance the world for future generations of women,” said Laurie Sallarulo, President & CEO.

The Launch Event is reserved for sponsors, their guests and supporters and will provide an intimate and real-life opportunity to network. Guests will be inspired by Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc. Her company is best known for its award-winning Hint® water, the leading unsweetened flavored water, with more than 150 employees and $150 million in sales. She also has a podcast and new book entitled, “Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters”.

On Wednesday, March 31, from 3-5 p.m. is the Girls Rule – Ignite Your Super Power Main Event that will connect hundreds of high school girls with powerful women. Students who might not have the opportunity to be influenced and mentored by strong women role models, will engage with inspiring and exciting keynote speakers, attend breakout sessions led by experienced women leaders paired with young female JA Alumni and receive a swag bag.

The event keynote speaker is Ari Chambers, a multi-media journalist, sports host, and social media manager based in New York City. Ari works for highlightHER and has grown its followers to over 70000 and is considered the fastest growing women’s sports platform. Her message: “Women’s Potential is Limitless”.

Breakout session topics will cover self-care, goal setting, financial wellness, self-invention, personal branding, making responsible choices, building positive relationships, self-acceptance, effective teamwork, the power of positivity and effective communication/public speaking.

“We are honored to serve as the title sponsor of Junior Achievement Girls Rule,” said Mo Corker, Comerica Bank Florida External Affairs Market Manager. “Historically, women have played a vital role in our country’s economic recovery and growth, which is why it is important that we invest in girls’ and women’s empowerment. Our bank is committed to equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the tools and money skills needed to navigate the increasingly complex financial landscape. Partnering with JA on this initiative, creates a path to economic freedom for girls who traditionally would not have access to these resources.”

Other Girls Rule partners include Bluegreen Vacations, CITY Furniture, Rick Case Automotive, Castle Group, JM Family Enterprises, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Office Depot, Valley Bank, Jeni Kampeas Chokron, Laurie Sallarulo, Peter Woolf, Hoffman’s Chocolates, RCC Associates, Kaufman Rossin, KEMET Electronics, Chaisteli Insurance Group, Hotwire Communications, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Holy Cross Hospital and Miller Construction Company.

For $100, they can also receive a copy of Kara’s book “Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters”.

Pinecrest Gardens Presents JazzAid Live at the Banyan Bowl with Teen Piano Prodigy Joey Alexander 3/13/21

Pinecrest Gardens Presents JazzAid Live at the Banyan Bowl with Teen Piano Prodigy Joey Alexander

Website
Cost: $15

Piano prodigy Joey Alexander is the next featured artist scheduled to perform at ‘JazzAid Live at the Banyan Bowl’ at Pinecrest Gardens. At just 17 years old, the young musician has countless accolades under his belt, including a solo performance at the 58th Grammy Awards and a White House performance for the Obamas alongside Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding, as well as an NPR Tiny Desk Concert and a Carnegie Hall debut.

Joining Alexander will be Ashley Pezzotti, a 24 year old graduate of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, whose jazz career is taking off. Pezzotti was the winner of the JazzMemes-hosted #WhatTheEllaChallenge, singing along to Alexander’s song, Someone to Watch Over Me. Pezzotti released her first studio album, We’ve Only Just Begun, in 2019.

Alexander’s upcoming virtual concert will broadcast live from the Banyan Bowl at Pinecrest Gardens at 8 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 13. The cost is $15 for an individual performance, with a generous portion of ticket sales being donated to World Central Kitchen. Tickets can be purchased online at www.pinecrestgardens.org/jazzaid.

Cost: $15

A funny thing happened to Joey Alexander over the past five years, a whirlwind period during which he became the most brilliantly precocious talent in jazz history, the youngest musician ever nominated for a Grammy Award in a jazz category; and a media favorite who’s earned a profile on 60 Minutes, a front-page profile in the New York Times and other premier coverage. As a pianist, composer, and bandleader, Joey Alexander is enjoying one of the most ascendant careers in jazz, thanks to his mind-blowing technique, innate musical smarts, and ability to communicate irresistible joy. At the 2016 Grammy Awards, he played during both the pre-telecast and the primetime TV event. That same year, he also performed with Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding for the Obamas at the White House, as part of a nationally televised International Jazz Day special. In 2018, he headlined Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater with a 20-piece string section orchestrated and conducted by Grammy nominee Richard DeRosa. On October 18, 2019, he made his triumphant Carnegie Hall debut to a sold-out Zankel Hall crowd. Early on in his ascent, the trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center leader Wynton Marsalis said that “there has never been anyone … who could play like that at his age.” Marsalis, who essentially “discovered” Alexander via his YouTube videos and invited him to New York, was spot-on in his assessment. And today, with his newest album release, “WARNA,” Joey Alexander continues to perform at the highest level. Joey will be joined by Special Guest vocalist from New York (and Miami native) Ashley Pezzotti

For over a year now, COVID-19 has been negatively impacting many aspects of our lives, including our relationships.

Whether you’re worried about relating to a significant other, family member or even a coworker, our psychologists and counselors can show you how to cope with the pandemic’s impact on all of your relationships.

Join us for a free, one-hour webinar with Albizu University’s top professors to learn some new relationship repair skills!

The event will explore the relationship conflict process, from what happens to our bodies physiologically during an argument, to differences and psychosocial influences among age groups in how we relate to one another.

Albizu professor and neuropsychologist Dr. Isaac Tourgeman will moderate the program, which will also explain how therapy can help you, and give suggestions on how to find a therapist who best fits your needs.
