Grow... One connection at a time BY NELSON PENALVER Chairman, Doral Business Council

’d like to share with you how the Doral Business Council (DBC) has helped me grow my business over the last five years and generate more than $1 million in gross revenue. I’ll give you one hint: Be engaged. As a DBC member, ask yourself these questions: Am I fully engaged in our organization? Am I taking full advantage of what the DBC has to offer? Am I getting a fair return on my investment? Consider these facts as you ponder and answer those questions: The DBC provides the right venue to grow your business and meet and connect with people facing the same business challenges that you do. These opportunities are enhanced in an environment that goes well beyond a simple networking event. Actual business is transacted by those DBC members who take time to participate and build lasting business relationships. The DBC provides an educational forum to help business owners and executives boost their knowledge and, more importantly, increase their bottom lines. Additionally, the international business alliances help members expand their reach beyond our shores. This means new markets, new products and new opportunities to grow. The Council offers various support and assistance to make your life easier and your business more profitable. But, if you don’t get engaged, you’ll miss out on these many benefits. As I mentioned in the last edition of the Chairman’s Corner, there are many ways you can get engaged. Have you thought about joining one of our 12 active

HEALTH CARE CORNER The importance of hand washing BY DR. CARLOS PEREZ

Hand washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of disease and avoid getting sick because so many illnesses are spread by those who fail to keep their hands clean. Some diseases spread through fecal-oral transmission (such as hepatitis A and salmonella) while flu and common cold germs are transferred through indirect contact with respiratory droplets or secretions. Staphlococcal infections with Epstein-Barr virus are spread when hands are contaminated with urine, saliva, or other moist body substances. Good and frequent hand washing remains the most effective way to avoid the spread of communicable diseases. It is important to use good technique when washing your hands, by wetting them with clean, running water before applying soap. Next, rub your hands together and scrub them well to form a soapy lather. Scrub the backs of your hands, between all fingers, and under the nails. Rub your hands for at least 20 seconds before rinsing well under running water. Dry them either with a clean towel or by an air drier. Soap and water are best for cleansing but if unavailable, use a 60% or more alcohol-based sanitizer. Always wash: • Before and after preparing food or eating, especially if raw meat or poultry are involved. • Prior to inserting or removing contact lenses, treating wounds, or caring for sick or injured person. • After using a toilet, changing

Christ Fellowship begins services at Springs School BY AIMEE ARTILES

For years, churches like Miami-Dade based Christ Fellowship have made a point to serve the students, parents and staff and local public schools. Hundreds of backpacks are distributed to low-income students, church volunteers landscape, paint and repair school facilities, and teachers and administrators are honored with gifts of food and school supplies throughout the year. Such relationships with local schools have now taken on a whole new meaning. When Christ Fellowship members decided to pursue a new church campus in Miami Springs, they looked to Miami Springs Middle School as a possible weekend venue for church services. The new relationships appear to be a win-win situation. The school district earns lease revenue, church services don’t interfere with school since they happen on the weekend, the local school is improved by church volunteers who landscape, clean, repair and paint the facility; and

neighbors have a nice, clean and accessible location to enjoy church services. CF Miami Springs campus pastor Omar Giritli estimates that it will take about 100 Christ Fellowship volunteers three hours every Sunday morning to set up for church, and another two to three hours to clean up before leaving. “It may sound like a lot of work, but in our minds the benefits clearly outweigh the challenge,” said Pastor Giritli. “Hosting church in a local school may be a little different than the norm, but we think it presents a unique opportunity for Christ Fellowship. “We consider it an honor to serve the students, teachers and families of Miami Springs Middle School and take joy in the chance to improve the facility and help a family in need.” Grand Opening services are scheduled at 9 and 10:30 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 22 at Miami Springs Middle School, 159 S. Royal Poinciana Blvd. For information, tel. 305-2381818 or visit <www.cfmiami.org>.

Forces join to empower KIDZ at OrthoNOW Sports For Healthy Kids joined efforts with Doral-based OrthoNOW to raise awareness about the importance of sports and nutrition in enhancing kids’ confidence, building discipline, and helping decrease the incidence of obesity and other preventable diseases. The special event took place Aug. 10 involving businesses and community-based organizations during the annual KIDZ Wellness Fair sponsored by OrthoNOW in Doral. “We want to empower the kids and youth of our community to consider sports, physical activity and proper nutrition lifelong habits,” said Dr. Ingrid Vasiliu-Feltes, President and Founder of Sports For Healthy Kids. “We pair kids with a professional individual sport coach according to their learning and motivational style and provide nutritional counseling for them and the parents,” she noted. “It is all highly individualized.” “The alliance leverages resources from two organizations dedicated to getting kids moving,” said Dr. Alejandro Badia, Chief Medical Officer of OrthoNOW, an orthopedic urgent care center collaborating with Sports For Healthy Kids as a natural way of enhancing OrthoNOW’s ongoing efforts to

Edison Sabala, MPH, MBA, and Chief Executive Officer of Sports For Healthy Kids, commented he was glad to see businesses interested in the well being of kids in the community. He emphasized that although most of his organization’s services were free for participating kids and youth ages 4-18, he did not view his work as charity. “Our mission is a calculated investment in the future of our community- we envision that using sports as a platform for empowering kids to grow up healthy and confident will reduce the cost of preventable diseases and enable kids to become productive, selfreliant members of their community.”

UPDATE BY GLORIA BURNS

Miami Christian School ushered in the 2013-14 school year two days before the start of classes with its annual “Back to School Bash,” a time for students to reconnect and also meet numerous new classmates who have joined the MCS family this year. Students participated in games and activities, chose lockers, finalized schedules and enjoyed lunch together. Parents later had their own welcome with a “Back to School Night” program providing an opportunity to meet teachers, check out classrooms and spend time in fellowship with other parents. Summer was busy for many MCS students who used their time off for advancement and enrichment. Among those taking the best advantage: Nicole Marin, a senior who spent a month in Mexico followed by a stay in New York to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology where she took a course in the Anatomy of Fashion and a course in Creating the Fashion Figure. Not to be outdone, sophomore Chris Abello travelled abroad in Italy with the Miami Children’s Chorus, performing in many of the major cities, including Florence, Rome, Sienna and Milan. The group’s schedule included study of Italy’s culture, visits to churches and historical sites while enjoying the tastes and flavors of the country. Junior

If you want to lead, first lead yourself BY PAT MORGAN

Until you can lead yourself, you have no business trying to lead someone else. First of all, you will not be successful because others will sense your lack of assurance and self leadership. When you lead yourself, you become attractive to other people who sense something different about you and want to emulate your habits and lifestyle. Over the years I have worked with thousands of bright professionals who have surrendered leadership of their lives to other people like their spouses, bosses or wellmeaning friends and advisors, when in fact, the only person who knows what is best for you is you. Diana is a nurse I have been working with for the past several months. She first contacted me to help her with a challenging situation she was dealing with at work. She was feeling micro-managed by her supervisor who was constantly checking on her assignments. And she was dealing with a difficult co-worker who was undermining her efforts on an important project. She had given up control to others and was tolerating many things unnecessarily. Her view from the inside was one of fear and disempowerment rather than confidence and certainty that she needed to be her best at her job. We began with a few small changes to put Diana back in the driver’s seat in her own life. We started with her Tolerations. Tolerations are things that drain your time, space and energy. They are things that we accept, take on, or tolerate that drain our patience, productivity, effectiveness and

contentment. In the process, they make us feel less attractive to ourselves. Examples of Tolerations are: frustrations, distractions, unfinished business, crossed boundaries, unmet needs, our own behavior or that of others. What are you tolerating? • Make a list of everything that you are tolerating. Take a few minutes to write it all down. As you think of more items, add them to your list. • Becoming aware of and clearly identifying your tolerations will help you take action to resolve them. Focus on work/business, home environment, relationships, health and finances. • Review your list and identify which of your tolerations are related. Is there a pivotal toleration that, if handled, will help you clear several others? Decide on steps you can take today to get started eliminating tolerations and putting a plan in place to free you of these distractions and create more time, space and energy for happiness, peace and productivity. Why not get started today? Contact me to schedule your complimentary session and get started leading yourself first. Pat Morgan, MBA and professional coach, works with busy professionals to help them become more profitable and productive by capitalizing on their strengths and taking focused action to create powerful change.

2013 Toyota Prius leads the ‘green’ vehicle parade Grant Miller CAR CORNER The Toyota Prius has become synonymous with “hybrid” and since it gets the best fuel economy of all hybrids, it’s no wonder why. The 2013 Prius Four gets 51 mpg around town and 48 mpg on the highway, yet still has all the amenities you could ask for — heated front seats, auxiliary jack, JBL audio system with GreenEdge speakers, keyless ignition and entry, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, touchscreen electronics interface and of course, a CD player. The Prius Four can also be equipped with a Solar Roof. The Prius is built using processes that reduce emissions in every stage of the vehicle lifecycle, from production and driving to eventual disposal and dismantling years down the road. Toyota introduced the Prius to the U.S. market in 1997 as the world’s first massproduced hybrid. The company’s Hybrid Synergy Drive System was unveiled in

2004 on the second-generation Prius, and the current Prius extends the car’s record of continuous improvement in fuel economy. The first-generation Prius achieved 41 combined mpg and the second-generation model had a 46 mpg rating. Toyota increased fuel efficiency for the third-generation Prius to a combined 50 mpg and mileage it was especially improved in coldstart conditions and at higher speeds. A 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle, four-cylinder engine produces 98 hp at 5,200 rpm. Together with its electric motor, the hybrid system generates a combined 134 hp. Due to the unique way that Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive combines the power of the gasoline engine and electric motor, the driver gets a feeling of torque in the Prius that makes it feel even more powerful than the output numbers suggest. The 2013 Prius continues in the thirdgeneration of the vehicle. It was all-new for the 2010 model year. There are few changes this year, but it was refreshed last year with updated headlights and taillights, plus a new front fascia and bumper. The Prius Two got new 15-inch wheel covers and standard LED Daytime Running Lights. The Prius Three added a standard three-door Smart Key entry system, and the

Prius has updated headlights and taillights, plus a new front fascia and bumper. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Prius Four now has standard auto on/off headlights and more comfortable SofTextrimmed seats, with an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat. The top-of-line Prius Five model’s Advanced Technology Package includes the Premium HDD Navigation System, plus the Head-up Display, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System and Lane Keep Assist. The Pre-Collision System retracts the front seatbelts and

applies the brakes in certain conditions when it determines that a crash is unavoidable. Lane Keep Assist can help the driver stay within the lane. The MSRP on the 2013 Toyota Prius ranges from $$26,650 to $30,295. Grant Miller is the publisher of Community Newspapers.

Iss thee demisee off thee NCAA A att hand?

As college football’s appeal continues to increase, the NCAA’s popularity is trending downwards — and quickly. We just passed the twoyear anniversary of the Yahoo! Sports tell-all of Nevin Shapiro, the disgraced, former University of Miami booster. His allegations included impermissible benefits both routine and debaucherous — from cash and gifts, to prostitutes and an abortion. Now, two years later, the University of Miami is still waiting; waiting on a punishment, something to end the years of confusion and angst. But tread carefully NCAA, you’re already in dangerous waters. If the oft-maligned leaders of college football are punitive on the Hurricanes — who have already self-imposed a ban on two bowl games — school president Donna Shalala is ready to play ball. When the school received its Notice of Allegations in February, Shalala put out an open letter that listed the repeated failures of the NCAA during its investigation and detailed UM’s plan to respond negatively to the Notice. “We deeply regret any violations, but we have suffered enough,” Shalala wrote.

Here we are on the precipice of another season and still no word from the NCAA. If only the UM was their only issue. In College Station reports have surfaced that Texas A&M University’s Heisman Trophywinning quarterback Johnny Manziel took improper benefits for signing autographs. Problem is the NCAA can’t find concrete evidence. And Manziel is worth a whole lot, to A&M, the NCAA and his parents’ bank account. And just like Shalala, Manziel is ready to play ball — literally and figuratively. He’s puffing out his chest and spreading his shoulders to the NCAA. Come on, let’s go. Challenge me. Suspend the player who has proved so valuable. Let’s see what happens. For anyone who wants to see the NCAA shamed, this is a good situation. In one situation, Manziel gets off because the NCAA can’t find any proof of payment. In the other, he gets suspended. And, rest assured, Manziel and his family will fight it with the lawyers they bring in. In the first situation, the media will mock the NCAA’s apparent lack of control of players. In the second, well, it could turn messy, and that would be great! The NCAA has operated dangerously. It overstepped its bounds in the Penn State University case by levying penalties in an unprecedented manner. Its punitive rules

recently forced a women’s golfer at a lowertier university to repay $20 for washing her car with a hose that was only available for athletes. It also has a corrupted system involving poor athletes who don’t have the means to pay for their own meals and can’t afford to pay for their parents and family to attend games. Now, schools continue to obey the NCAA and players continue to play because, well, what other choice do they have? If you want to play professional football, you have to play in the NCAA first. There isn’t an option; it’s the way it is. For a school to play other high-caliber teams, they must be a part of the NCAA. There is no choice. That is, unless, a group of schools were to get together and leave the NCAA. And the SEC, the biggest division in all of college football, has the best opportunity to do so. The conference has athletic directors and players that are infuriated by the NCAA. And they have the money. If they were to leave, it would be the beginning of the end for the NCAA. But it shouldn’t have to be that way. The NCAA should be able to operate in a fair and equitable manner. If you remember your days in a high school civics class, you will recall the phrase “checks and balances” — a governmental method of separating powers in order to ensure that no branch reigns supreme. Since

CORNER the NCAA is an autonomous body, it has no checks or balances. It operates on its own accord, in whatever manner suits it best. In the UM investigation, the NCAA is operating in the name of validating its investigation — and its existence. Officials need to prove that this matter was worth more than two years of their time. But they are not operating in the name of fairness. A group of schools leaving the NCAA is a last-ditch effort. The NCAA still has time to right its wrongs, and it can. But it’s not trending that way. Preston Michelson is a freshman at the Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism and is a graduate of Palmer Trinity School.

On-campus football stadium a must for UM BY GRANT MILLER Publisher

For quite a few years now, advocates of an oncampus football stadium for the University of Miami Hurricanes have been clamoring for a change in the school’s nostadium policy and touting the advantages of a dedicated home for the team. Time could be running out for the UM’s football program if the administration doesn’t see the importance of an on-campus stadium and make it a priority. Fan attendance at home games — held not onsite but at distant stadiums, like the Orange Bowl in the past or at Sun Life stadium now — is down and so is team spirit and school spirit. A true “Home of the ’Canes” located right on campus would do a lot to correct all of those problems and might even get the team back on a winning streak with some national championships. Expecting students and fans to travel long distances to stadiums with no connection to their team just isn’t working. There is no home team advantage if there is no home. And if the UM administrators really want their school to be taken seriously, then they need to take their own sports program seriously — especially football, which is the power sport at most schools

nationwide and drives not only funding for sports but for educational programs as well. Alumni that aren’t excited about their school aren’t inclined to contribute to it. Look at the facts. The University of Florida, Florida State University, University of Central Florida, Florida International University and Florida Atlantic University all have on-campus stadiums. Why not a major program like the UM. The same is true for all major colleges around the country. Those universities all understand the importance of oncampus stadiums for building spirit and raising funds. College football is not just a game; it’s also big business. Studies have shown that there is room onsite for an appropriate-sized stadium, and that traffic and parking issues would be minimal and manageable. A stadium wouldn’t have to be big enough to compete with Sun Life. In fact, having a limited number of seats might encourage fans to buy their tickets early before they sell out. Financing the stadium is a challenge of course, but if the UM will wisely invest in its own future and also seek corporate sponsorships, there’s no reason why farsighted administrators can’t make it happen. Private funding is a must. No taxpayer money should be involved if the UM wants to avoid the stigma of the Marlins’ stadium fiasco. It can be done. It should be done. The only question is, are the UM administrators up to the game?

Steinbauer wins Gold at Maccabiah Games South Florida native and golfer Julie Steinbauer won two Gold Medals at the 19th Maccabiah Games while representing the United States in Israel. Her individual title was earned by a two-under par score of 72-69-73 (total of 214), besting her closest competition by 16 strokes. She was also the team leader that helped the five-girl junior team win the Team Gold. “It was an honor to represent my country but to win two Gold’s for the United States made it even that more special.” said Steinbauer. “I really enjoyed playing my best against players from other countries.” Named Miami-Dade County High School Girl’s Golfer of the Year in 2012 and 2013, she is a four-time High School First Team member, and represented The First Tee of Miami at the Champions’ Tour Nature Valley-Pebble Beach Open in 2012.
