HOTSPOTORLANDO Started as a Blog about Orlando, and started going other places too, but it is our foundation. Everything we create, and photograph is based on our Philosophy “We got you on Camera� We like to show everything and everyone to the world, and it is important to always look at every moment as unique, because the last second you lived could never be duplicated. Did you ever think of that? We try to register whatever we can and bring it to everyone, giving them a chance to see what we see. We are originally from Brazil, and yes we write in English because after so many years, it is important to let people know what our people are all about, and how can we do that writing in Portuguese? Life is about moments, choices, and make your way through life sharing, not hiding. For this reason we photograph, and register every moment worth showing. So here is our history and where you can find us. thehotspotorlando.com hotspotorlando.wordpress.com www.aboutusmagazine.com Emails can be sent to: hotspotorlando@gmail.com Our phone number for contact is 407-406-4900

Everybody has a dream, we are all driven towards an idea of accomplish something great, that will mark our stay in this world, or at least to be remembered by creating something worth sharing. Sometimes we start a Journey, that without advice turns out to be the journey of your lifetime, and I think this is what happened to Jonh. Read his trajectory that started a few years ago.


In 2001 John and his sister Michelle Grant arrived in Brazil with a group to study Capoeira and Brazilian culture for what was supposed to be a four month trip. After four months they began to understand the language and decided to stay. Living in Brazil, John and Michelle began working. They started teaching English in schools in many different cities. John also began working in a Brazilian musical instrument factory teaching them how to make Marimbas, Xylophones, Vibraphones and other percussion keyboard instruments. By working in the factory, John began to meet people involved in the music industry and John and Michelle began to help teach percussion in bands throughout the country. Bands in Brazil were similar to concert bands in the United States only with very limited access to quality instruments and information. On the release of the film ‘Drumline’ a new culture in Brazil was born. Many groups were to formed inspired by what they saw in the film. Rudimental percussion equipment is very expensive in Brazil and very difficult to find to the groups end up using the instruments they have available. Rudimental Percussion did not exist in Brazil in neither did the instruments used in rudimental percussion. In 2004 John and Michelle bought a lathe and started making drum sticks and practice pads in their garage for the kids. American sticks and pads were so expensive by the time they got to Brazil that it was impossible for the kids to buy. Many different types of Brazilian wood were tested but nothing came close to Hickory and still quality sticks were desired and needed.


In teaching these groups John and Michelle noticed that generally each band had one or t sion and music theory but were being held back in their bands or groups. The idea came about to have a Sunday ‘rehearsal’ where each of these more advanced kids level of interest and have the opportunity to receive more advanced information. After a few of these Sunday rehearsals it became apparent that these rehearsals needed to pate and to provide more information it was decided to try to have “camps” similar to ‘Dr weekend and to receive more information. These camps have lasted up to 11 days. In these monthly camps/workshops a group began forming and the name “Tcha Degga D Drag” as a logo, a great rudiment to teach a person starting to play rudimental percussion play and read at least a “Flam Drag”. It works.

Mr. Seidling is involve ‘take these kids to WGI’. Some of the kids attending these camps are really starting to play at an advanced level and at a high level. A few kids have actually gone out to the United States and played in DCI ( In 2009 Tcha Degga Da was invited to play in a clinic for three days at the Conservatory o internet where a national television station saw them and invited Tcha Degga Da to play i went on to the semi-final competition and received attention and recognition throughout Tcha Degga Da has had up to 140 students at a camp and as little as 12.

The costs of food and rent are divided and everyone involved helps to pay to keep Tcha Degga Da going. There have been camps in many different states and cities throughout Brazil. Tcha Degga Da has had the opportunity to teach hundreds of people since formation in 2005. The instruments used in the camps are borrowed from schools or bands of the students who come to the camps. Tcha Degga Da has had many camps with no instruments where the kids played on the ground or even set up a board on saw horses. In 2010 Offworld Percussion sponsored Tcha Degga Da with 20 professional practice pads as a donation to the kids. To decide who would get a pad the kids posted videos on facebook as a competition and received constructive comments from teachers and professionals throughout the world. This attention really helps and makes a difference. Kids who are unable to attend camps send videos to receive instructional information. These videos are also utilized to help other people learn the exercises that are posted on our site. A person can very easily find a video of the exercise they want to study just by looking for “Tchadeggada” and the name of the exercise they want to study. Tchá Degga Da is a non-profit organization. The group is maintained by the members and teachers paying their own way to participate. Any support or help really makes a difference.

Espírito de Amor e Alegria Por Patricia Nogueira A revista Ladies Home Journal publicou uma história que fez meu coração sorrir: “- Como vão os negócios, Eben? O homem idoso estava lavando a louça após retornar à casa depois do trabalho. - Tudo em ordem, Martha, tudo em ordem. - A loja ainda está do mesmo jeito? Nossa como gostaria de ir para lá de novo, ver o sol brilhar em seu interior. Como a loja está agora, Eben? - A loja nunca mais foi a mesma desde que você saiu de lá, Martha. Martha corou levemente. Uma esposa será algum dia velha demais para se emocionar com os elogios do marido? Eben e Martha tiveram uma loja de miudezas por muitos anos, mas um dia Martha ficou doente e foi hospitalizada. Isso aconteceu dois meses atrás. Ela já saíra do hospital, mas jamais recuperaria as forças de novo. Nunca mais seria parceira dele naquela pequena loja tão alegre. Não consigo deixar de sentir uma vontade imensa de ver nossa pequena loja, pensou Martha uma tarde. Se for muito cuidadosa acho que conseguirei chegar·lá. Afinal, não é tão longe assim. Levou um tempo enorme até que ela conseguisse chegar ao centro da cidade, mas, por fim, ela alcançou o início da rua onde a loja se localizava. De repente, ela parou bruscamente. Não muito longe dela, na calçada, estava Eben. Carregava um tabuleiro à altura da cintura, pendurado no pescoço por tiras. Nesse tabuleiro havia algumas cartelas de botões para colarinho, outras com alfinetes e muitos maços de cadarços de sapato. Com voz trêmula, anunciava seu produto. Martha se apoiou contra o muro de um prédio próximo. Depois, olhou na direção da pequena loja. As vitrinas estavam repletas de frutas. Só então ela compreendeu o que acontecera. A pequena loja fora vendida para pagar as despesas hospitalares. Virou-se e se apressou para sair dali, o mais rápido que suas pernas enfraquecidas conseguissem. Ele ficará muito sentido se souber que descobri tudo!, pensou ela, e as lágrimas molharam sua face.


Ele guardou esse segredo, e agora eu é que guardarei um segredo. Ele nunca saberá que eu sei o que aconteceu com a nossa loja. Aquela noite, quando Eben chegou em casa, com frio e cansado, Martha fez alegremente a mesma velha pergunta: - Como vão os negócios, Eben? - Melhor do que nunca, Martha – Ele respondeu com entusiasmo. E ela orou a Deus para que o abençoasse por seu espírito de alegria e pelo amor que dedicava a ela”. I Coríntios 13, o capítulo do amor, diz:

“Ainda que eu falasse as línguas dos homens e dos anjos, e não tivesse amor,seria como o metal que soa ou como o sino que tine. E ainda que tivesse o dom de profecia, e conhecesse todos os mistérios e toda a ciência, e ainda que tivesse toda a fé, de maneira tal que transportasse os montes,e não tivesse amor, nada seria. E ainda que distribuísse toda a minha fortuna para sustento dos pobres, e ainda que entregasse o meu corpo para ser queimado, e não tivesse amor, nada disso me aproveitaria. O amor é sofredor, é benigno; o amor não é invejoso; o amor não trata com leviandade, não se ensoberbece. Não se porta com indecência, não busca os seus interesses, não se irrita, não suspeita mal; Não folga com a injustiça, mas folga com a verdade; Tudo sofre, tudo crê, tudo espera, tudo suporta. O amor nunca falha... Agora, pois, permanecem a fé, a esperança e o amor, estes três, mas o maior destes é o amor”. Que esse espírito de amor e alegria nos alcance hoje!

Christian Leboutin

He began sketching shoes in his early teens, ignoring his academic studies. In fact, he was expelled from four schools. Going through a punkphase, he was in a few films, including 1979 cult classic Race d'ep. Under the title The Homosexual Century, the film attracted an English-language audience. His little formal training included drawing and the decorative arts at the Académie d'Art Roederer. Louboutin claims his fascination with shoes began in 1976 when he visited the Musée national des Arts d'Afrique et d'Océanie on the Avenue Daumesnil in Paris. It was there that he saw a sign from Africa forbidding women wearing sharp stilettos from entering a building for fear of damage to the extensive wood flooring. This image stayed in his mind, and he later used this idea in his designs. "I wanted to defy that," Louboutin said.

"I wanted to create something that broke rules and made women feel confident and empowered.” Fascinated by world cultures, he ran away in his teens to Egypt and spent a year in India. Louboutin returned to Paris in 1981, where he assembled a portfolio of drawings of elaborate high heels. He brought it to the top couture houses. The effort resulted in employment with Charles Jourdan. Subsequently, Louboutin met Roger Vivier. (Claims about Vivier is that he invented the stiletto [or spike]-heel shoe.) Louboutin thus became an apprentice in Vivier’s atelier. Going on to serve as a freelance designer, Louboutin designed women’s shoes for Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Maude Frizon.


With funds from two backers, he opened a Paris shoe salon in 1991 with Princess Caroline of Monaco as his first customer. She complimented the store one day when a fashion journalist was present and the journalist subsequent publication of Princess's comments helped greatly to increase Louboutin's renown. Clients such asDiane Von Furstenburg and Catherine Deneuve followed. Later ones interested in his stiletto heels have included Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Sarah Jessica Parker wore a pair of shoes by Louboutin for her wedding. Louboutin has topped The Luxury Institute's annual Luxury Brand Status Index (LBSI) for three years; the brand's offerings were declared the Most Prestigious Women's Shoes in 2007, 2008, and 2009. The list of distributors and location of the stores can be found on the Christian Louboutin website.New boutiques have been scheduled to open in Turkey and India in 2012. http://www.christianlouboutin.com/


Ele começou a desenhar sapatos no início da adolescência, ignorando seus estudos acadêmicos. Na verdade, ele foi expulso de quatro escolas. Passando por um punkphase, ele apareceu em alguns filmes, incluindo o cult clássico de 1979 Raça d'ep. Sob o título Um centenario homossexual, o filme atraiu um público de língua Inglêsa. Seu pequeno treinamento formal incluiam desenho e as artes decorativas na Académie d'Art Roederer. Louboutin diz que sua fascinação por sapatos começou em 1976 quando visitou o Musée des Arts nacional d'Afrique et d'Oceanie na Daumesnil Avenue, em Paris. Foi lá que ele viu um sinal da África proibindo mulheres usando saltos estiletes afiados de entrar em um edifício, por medo de danificar o piso de madeira extensiva. Esta imagem ficou em sua mente, e mais tarde usou essa idéia em seus projetos. "Eu queria desafiar isso", disse Louboutin.

"Eu queria criar algo que quebrasse as regras e fizesse as mulheres se sentir confiantes e capacitadas.” Fascinado por culturas do mundo, ele fugiu em sua adolescência para o Egito e passou um ano na Índia. Louboutin retornou a Paris em 1981, onde ele montou um portfolio de desenhos elaborados de saltos altos. Trouxe-o para as casas de alta costura de topo. O esforço resultou em emprego com Charles Jourdan. Posteriormente, Louboutin conheceu Roger Vivier. (Reclamações sobre Vivier é que ele inventou o stiletto [ou spike] sapato de salto.) Louboutin, assim, tornou-se um aprendiz no atelier de Vivier. Passando a servir como um designer freelance, Louboutin projetava sapatos femininos para Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, e Maude Frizon. Com recursos de dois investidores ele abriu um salão de sapatos em Paris em 1991 com a princesa Caroline de Mônaco como sua primeira cliente. Ela elogiou a loja quando um jornalista de moda estava presente e a jornalista publicou as observações da princesa ajudando muito a aumentar a fama de Louboutin. Clientes, tais como Diane Von Furstenburg e Catherine Deneuve . Mais tarde, os interessados em ​​ saltos stiletto incluíram Jennifer Lopez, Madonna e Gwyneth Paltrow. Sarah Jessica Parker usou um par de sapatos por Louboutin para seu casamento.

Dresses Object of Art When we were little girls, we dressed our dolls, at least we used to, and explored our imagination. As a child we have the dresses we love and we can't wait to wear them, we walk around the house with our mother's dresses and shoes, hoping to one day look as beautiful as them. In the storybooks the characters have beautiful and magical clothes, that only in dream could be possible. As we grow up, the journey in a woman’s life has a vast collection of defined occasions represented by each dress. Treasures, thophies, to every special occasion planned with great detail. In a woman’s universe the element that will remind her her as the one, or the most successful, charming, or beautiful, could be anything, but she chooses to be the dress. As the journey continues women will embrace not only the dresses she dreamed all her life, or the ones that she never imagined to wear, but comes time when she gets to pick the most cherished, the wedding dress. Life is a cycle, and every time she looks in her closet, right in front of her, a timeline of dresses, to remind her of everything. In this collection presented by many artists at the Gallery of Avalon Island in Downtown Orlando, last September, in each object portrait you could see imagination and magic, art dedicated to the transformation in a woman's universe. Beautiful work created from the heart. The Artists featured in the collection are Donna Dowless in the photo,Dina Mack, Henry Sinn, Meredith Olinger, Robin Maria Pedrero, J Virgil Rice, Gena Semenov,Cindy A. Anderson, Martha Lent, Lynn Whipple, Fritz Stinebaugh and Lori Mirisola .

"Floridian of the Year" Helps Boost International Numbers for November at Orlando International Airport The South American country of Brazil was named the "Floridian of the Year" for 2011 by Florida Trend Magazine. With two daily non-stop flights to Sao Paulo, Brazil from Orlando International Airport (MCO), generating some $280 million for the local economy annually, the robust Brazilian economy has not only made Florida the number one United States destination for Brazilian tourists, it has also stimulated international traffic for MCO. Based in part on the strong Brazilian numbers, a 3 percent increase in international traffic helped offset a slight decline in domestic traffic for the month at MCO. "Based on November numbers, on a rolling 12-month basis, Brazilian traffic has increased by 41 percent at Orlando International Airport. Approximately 203,552 Brazilian passengers can be directly attributed to TAM Airlines' twice-daily nonstop flights from MCO to Sao Paulo.

"Floridian do Ano" Ajuda a aumentar as estatisticas Internacionais de Novembro no Aeroporto Internacional de Orlando O país da América do Sul do Brasil foi nomeado o "Floridian do Ano" em 2011 pela revista Florida Trend. Com dois voos diários non-stop para São Paulo -Brasil saindo do Orlando International Airport (MCO), gerando cerca de US $ 280 milhões para a economia local por ano, a economia robusta do brasileiro não só fez Florida USA o destino número um para os turistas brasileiros, mas também estimulou o tráfego internacional para o MCO. Baseado em parte sobre os números fortes do Brasil, um aumento de 3 por cento no tráfego internacional ajudou a compensar um ligeiro declínio no tráfego doméstico para o mês no MCO. "Baseado em Novembro, e em 12 meses continuos de dados , o tráfego de brasileiros aumentou 41 por cento no Orlando International Airport. Cerca de 203.552 passageiros brasileiros podem ser diretamente atribuídos a TAM Airlines com 2 voos diarios non-stop de MCO para São Paulo. Abastecido por inúmeros brasileiros, devemos ser capazes de quebrar mais um recorde de viagens internacionais no Aeroporto Internacional para 2011 ", diz Phil Brown, Diretor Executivo do Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. Dados estatísticos de Novembro: Tráfego internacional aumentou 3,27 por cento em novembro, com 261, 924 viajantes.Tráfego doméstico diminuiu 1,67 por cento, com 2.560.000 passageiros em novembro.

YT-D Year to date- (2011 ate a presente data)tráfego global é de 1,6 por cento com 32.390.723 passageiros.
