American Academy, a program within American Heritage Schools, is pleased to host “Mindfulness and Your Child,” a virtual event via Zoom on Thursday, May 19 at 7 p.m. This event is part of American Academy’s monthly program, “Experts in Learning Differences” speaker series. Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy Program, the expert speaker for the May event is Piero Falci, an author and educator of mindfulness meditation and mindful living.

Mindfulness is a word that means different things to different people. During this event, Falci will explain why it is important to help children practice mindfulness meditation and prepare them to live more mindfully. He equates mindfulness to a sport in which mindfulness meditation is the practice, and mindful living is the game. While practice is important, what one does in practice is of less consequence than their performance during the game. Viewers will truly be inspired by Falci’s wisdom and learn valuable strategies for children to embrace life and become better human beings.

“There is a lot of violence and insanity in the world, and I am convinced that mindfulness is an antidote to that. I am devoted to helping individuals have insights that may expand their selflessness and compassion and lead to the growth of kindness and care for all sentient beings and the natural environment,” said Falci.

Falci is an educator of mindfulness meditation and mindful living and several well-established programs, such as the acclaimed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. He received his training from the teachers at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and his MBSR Teacher Certification at the Mindfulness Center at Brown University School of Public Health. He also teaches the Mind-Body Skills Group (MBSG) Program developed by the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, as well as the Mindfulness in Schools Project’s .b (DOT-BE) curriculum for teenagers. He has written several books and offers a variety of mindfulness courses on how to apply mindfulness for the improvement of life.

The speaker series is streamed live virtually, as well as available for viewing following each event. The purpose of the speaker series is to educate families about topics that relate to mild learning differences and are relevant today. All of the speakers are experts in the various disciplines of each topic. The American Academy’s goal is to provide families with a safe space to ask questions and strengthen their knowledge about how to ensure the success of their child.

Yudell, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist.

Finding the “gift within” a child is essential to building confidence and success in school and life. In this episode of “Experts in Learning Differences,” Dr. Yudell will explain how to understand and use educational evaluations to uncover weaknesses and highlight strengths in order to enhance a child’s schooling and benefit his or her academic and social achievements. Throughout his discussion, Dr. Yudell will provide evidence-based, scientifically proven, and effective tools that motivate a child’s entire support system to work together towards improvement and advancement.

Dr. Yudell practices in Broward and southern Palm Beach counties. He specializes in both child and adult pathology and has extensive experience completing psychological evaluations and testing in private and public schools, the Division of Disability, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and in private practice.

American Heritage Schools, the top-ranked PK3 through 12 college preparatory school, invites educators from throughout the country to its virtual “Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair” on Tuesday, March 29 at 7 p.m. From the convenience of their homes, attendees will learn about job opportunities available at the schools’ Broward Campus and Palm Beach Campus and earn 1.5 hours of continuing education credit by attending a keynote address given by nationally recognized speaker and Chief Editor of Cult of Pedagogy, Jennifer Gonzalez.

American Heritage Schools is one of the top four largest private schools in the nation, and among the top 20 largest employers in South Florida.

The topic of Gonzalez’s webinar is “What Really Makes a Difference in Teaching?” Gonzalez has over ten years of classroom experience, mainly teaching middle school language arts, but also teaching at the collegiate level to train pre-service teachers. She is currently the Chief Editor of Cult of Pedagogy, a website she created, where she works full-time helping teachers of all subjects and grade levels practice and perfect the art of teaching. This session will explore the four rock-solid truths backed by research on how people learn, and how if followed when planning lessons, it is more likely for real learning to happen for students.

“We are always seeking qualified, determined educators who are motivated to work with the best and brightest students in the nation,” said Dr. Douglas Laurie, president of American Heritage Schools. “Our ‘Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair’ will give job-seekers the chance to discover who we are and the current positions we have available, while at the same time get empowered and gain knowledge about how to make a powerful impact when teaching from an inspirational speaker and nationally renowned educator, Jennifer Gonzalez.”

The panel will discuss how NFTs have changed the practice of digital art, where NFTs sit in the broader tradition of digital art, and where this all might beheaded.

Join Albizu University and internationally renowned neuropsychologist Juan Arango-Lasprilla, Ph.D. on November 16 at 10 a.m. to explore the status of Hispanic individuals working in the field of neuropsychology in the United States and discuss the implications of their practice.
The field of neuropsychology has not been able to keep up with the ever-growing rate of the Hispanic/Latino population in the U.S. (currently the largest and growing minority population in the U.S. / will reach 111.22 million by 2060) and this could be attributed, in part, to the cultural homogeneity of individuals who usually pursue specialization in this field, while the number of ethnic minorities who do so has remained low.

On July 1st, The Senate Bill 646: Intercollegiate Athlete Compensation and Rights went into effect. This Bill authorizes certain intercollegiate athletes to earn compensation for the use of their names, images, or likenesses (NIL). The bill also prohibits a postsecondary educational institution and other entities, institutions, and their employees from compensating intercollegiate athletes or prospective intercollegiate athletes for the use of their names, images, or likenesses.

Now the question is was this a good move or a bad move? Will College athletes still favor the love of the game and the alma mater vs. the money that comes from their NIL. Will NIL profit throw off the competitive balance? Will College athletes become instant millionaires?

The panelists spearheading this discussion are Corey Staniscia, External Affairs Director of Dreamfield, and Mary Giardina, Senior Associate AD/Administration and Chief of Staff/SWA at Florida Atlantic University. The event will be moderated by Joe Rose, radio personality on The Joe Rose Show on 560WQAM.

The event is free and open to the public. If you’d like to make a donation to support Village Square programming, you may do so when you register.

Panelist Portia Dunkley is co-founder and executive director of the New Canon Chamber Collective, a non-profit chamber music ensemble offering performance opportunities for Black and Latinx musicians. FLO’etry Entertainment & QUICK2Love Foundation CEO Jerris “QUICKthePoet” Evans will also discuss the issue from his viewpoint as a performer and producer.

The yearlong Arts For Action: Black Voices initiative explores how the arts and artists can be a force for change in addressing critical issues of social justice and racial inequality.

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 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.

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.

My State MLS to Host Free, Educational Webinars for Real Estate Professionals

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.

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

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

Facebook
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.

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.

On Friday, April 30 at 7:00 p.m., the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) presents Lando & The Infinite Sadness as part of its monthly “Virtual Jazz at MOCA” series. Lando & The Infinite Sadness melds jazz, down tempo beats, and soul together for a beautiful listening experience. “The musical conception of Josue Vargas and Ben Stocker, Lando & The Infinite Sadness was born bouncing ideas over emails between Pembroke Pines, Florida, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With aspirations of writing soundtracks in film and working with admired artists, Vargas and Stocker have created an alternate world of their own of gloomy polyphonic dissonance later accompanied by avant-garde moments of vividly colored peace.” J. Bobman, Artist Bio (2020)

Since the onset of COVID-19, MOCA suspended the Jazz at MOCA concert series due to health protocols. With the goal of ensuring the continuity of Jazz at MOCA, the museum will launch the program virtually, in partnership with WDNA Radio—South Florida’s premier jazz radio station.

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.

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. For inquiries and reservations, please message the restaurant on Instagram @itamaemiami or email hello@itamaemiami.com.

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.

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.

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.
