AND THE HEART FEELS

LINEU ZADERESKI

Lineu Zadereski é artista plástico, escultor e designer gráfico, e reconhecido como um dos mais novos representantes da cultura e arte brasileira nos Estados Unidos. Em busca de novas oportunidades e experiências, Zadereski que deixou a cidade de Curitiba com o intuito de estudar Inglês, percebeu na mesma oportunidade a chance de ir mais longe quando decidiu ingressar na faculdade. A arte e a comunicação visual transpuseramse em meio as muitas opções de estudo como a melhor direção a sua carreira e a sua realização de vida. Em 2004 ao se formar na Middlesex Community College em “Liberal Arts” com o diploma de “associate degrees” em designer gráfico, a carreira de Lineu ingressou em uma nova direção. O começo profissional e as suas experiências com a realidade nem sempre se mostraram por completo a primeira vista, então era necessário se descobrir como um profissional da arte, e para isto o investimento foi necessário ao longo dos anos. Após muitos desenhos, e técnicas de arte como a xilografia, tilogravura, serigrafia e pintura a óleo, Lineu passou a utilizar o acrílico em suas telas, que melhor representam sua fase atual.

A arte gráfica, ou computadorizada influenciaram seu trabalho que atualmente é figurativo com marcas simétricas e balanceadas, arte esta salientada pelo cubismo e o abstrato composto de cores chamativas. Em 2011 Lineu foi convidado a ser o propulsor artístico do festival “Lowell Riverfest” (Festival do Rio) que acontece todos os anos na cidade de Lowell, e que na ocasião ostentou o tema; Culture Flows (fluir cultural), atribuído a rica diversidade de povos representados na mesma . Alem de idealizador do símbolo do evento; um peixe com as características de seu estilo artístico, o mesmo elaborou todo o contexto gráfico na divulgação do evento. Por fim Lineu realizou sua estréia como escultor ao reproduzir uma escultura tridimensional do peixe icone do acontecimento. Lineu contou com a participação de mais de 500 alunos das escolas publicas da região, que por sua vez representaram o peixe em 24 painéis, onde cada um homenageava um pais diferente.

“A honra de representar a diversidade étnica e a miscigenação cultural neste Festival através do meu trabalho, foi gratificante e inspirador, afima Zadereski ao comentar a experiência. Entre este e outros eventos o nome de Lineu recebeu destaque e reconhecimento publico como um jovem e promissor talento brasileiro. Ao fim de 2011 homenageado com o premio Talento Brasil em Boston atribuído a sua contribuição a comunidade brasileira nos Estados Unidos, Zadereski também recebeu a sua indicação ao Press Award 2012 na categoria artes visuais. Lineu que já trabalhou de floor cleaner, cozinheiro, dishwasher, gerente de recebimento, garçom, e outros, hoje alem de artista plástico e’ designer gráfico e’ instrutor de arte e design, e leciona para adolescentes com idades 15 a 22, em uma organização não governamental; a UTEC (United Teen Equality Center.) http://utec-lowell.org/. Organização esta que dedica-se ao sucesso sócio e econômico de jovens e adolescentes que buscam na instituição a ajuda necessária para um novo “recomeçar Ao retratar estas e outras histórias, que geraram alianças ao personalizar a inspiração com os desafios e as conquistas, podemos prestigiar uma arte autentica e ao alcance da reali-

E’ a continuidade de um crescimento e aprimoramento que surgiu de experiências diárias e constantes, que ao longo dos anos revelaram disciplina e dedicação em seu amadurecimento. Mas esta janela se abrira ainda cedo com as influencias de consagrados artistas brasileiros como Cândido Portinary e Tarsila do Amaral que inspiraram e somaramse as primeiras aulas de litogravura em um centro cultural de Curitiba chamado; Solar do Barão aos 10 anos de idade. Dentre as características e traços que identificamos em suas pinturas, notamos as formas geométricas, e de figuras sorridentes e otimistas. Mão e pé’ singular compõem o corpos complexos com o auxilio indutivo de um elemento tridimensional almejando centralizar o composto artístico. Outra característica marcante de seu trabalho são os olhos, sempre com um olho aberto e outro fechado e ao concluir cada quadro Lineu representa um “cinto”, onde sua assinatura sela a obra ao fechar e envolver toda a arte.

Lineu Zadereski is an artist, sculptor and graphic designer, and recognized as one of the youngest representatives of Brazilian art and culture in the United States. In search of new opportunities and experiences, Zadereski who left the city of Curitiba in order to study English, saw the same opportunity the chance to go further when he decided to enter college. The art and visual communication is implemented through the many options of study as the best direction to his career and his lifetime achievement. In 2004 after graduating from Middlesex Community College on "Liberal Arts" with the diploma of "associate degrees" in a graphic designer, Lineus's career entered a new direction. The early work and their experiences with the reality does not always shown in full at first sight, so it was necessary to find out how a work of art, and for this investment was needed over the years. After many designs and art techniques such as xilographie, tilogravura, serigraphy and oil painting, Lineu began using acrylic in his paintings that best represent its current phase. The graphic art work, or computer work that he uses in his work is currently figurative marks with symmet-

rical and balanced, his art is highlighted by cubism and abstract composed of bright colors. In 2011 Lineu was invited to be the propeller of the art festival at "Lowell Riverfest" (River Festival) which takes place every year in the City of Lowell, and that at the time sported the theme; Culture Flows (flow culture), given the rich diversity represented by the same people. Besides the creator of the symbol of the event, a fish with the features of his artistic style, it has produced all the graphics context in publicizing the event. Finally Lineu made his debut as a sculptor to reproduce three-dimensional sculpture of the fish icon of the event. Lineu was attended by over 500 students from public schools in the region, which in turn accounted for the fish in 24 panels, where each one named after a different country. "The honor of representing the diverse ethnic and cultural mix in the festival through the my work was rewarding and inspiring, afirma Zadereski commenting about the experience. Between this and other events the name of Lineu received prominence and public recognition as a promising young Brazilian talent.

Lineu Zadereski

At the end of 2011 honored with the prize Talent Brazil in Boston attributed to its contribution to the Brazilian community in the United States, Zadereski also received his appointment to the 2012 Press Award in the category Visual Arts. Lineu who has worked as an floor cleaner, cook, dishwasher, reception manager, waiter, and others today in addition to artist and 'graphic designer' art and design instructor he teaches for teenagers aged 15-22, in a non-governmental organization, the UTEC (United Teen Equality Center.) http://utec-lowell.org/. Organization that is dedicated to social and economic success of youth and adolescents in the institution seeking the help you need for a new "start". By portraying these and other stories, which led to alliances with the inspiration to customize the challenges and achievements, we can honor an authentic art and the scope of reality with which we identify. Values ​​depicted in colorful pictures and the lives of those who participated directly and indirectly in this allegory. It is the continuing growth and improvement that emerged from daily experiences and constants, which over the years have shown discipline

and dedication in their maturation. But this window was opened earlier with the influences of established artists such as Brazilian Candido Portinary and Tarsila do Amaral who inspired and were added to the first classes of lithography into a cultural center in Curitiba called Solar do Barao at age 10 . Among the characteristics and traits we have identified in his paintings, we see geometric shapes, smiling figures and optimistic. Hand and foot an natural make up of the complex bodies with the help of an inductive three-dimensional element targeting the compound artistic center. Another striking feature of his work are his eyes, always with one eye open and one closed and each picture complete Lineu represents a "belt", where your signature seal the work to close and engage the whole art.

A arte de Marta Cerqueira

Marta é uma artista com uma imaginação profunda, seu trabalho mostra o quão alto ela pode chegar, e com certeza voa mais alto e mais rápido do que ela mesma pode realizar. Os muitos talentos que ela tem são profundamente sintonizados com seu percurso na vida, seus estudos, fe’ e sua familia. Nascida no Brasil, em João Pessoa, como uma menina, ela desenvolveu uma paixão por cores. Casamento, filhos e religião, a levou por diversos países e também ate a necessidade de se expressar atraves da arte. Pintura a óleo em primeiro lugar, aquarelas, em seguida, silhuetas, e construção com papel a sua mais recente descoberta. Parece que as infinitas possibilidades em uma folha de papel, funcionam como um gatilho para a sua inclinação para o corte, construção e criação da beleza a partir do nada. Armada de um dom como todos os artistas, tem intimidade com seu próprio processo criativo e rapidamente esta progredindo . Com verdadeira atenção ao detalhe, os sonhos de uma menina são claras,transpirando através de suas bonecas construídas no papel, permitindo-a realizar um lindo sonho de inocência. Elas são de luxo, construídas de materiais diferentes, pedaços de um sonho que se torna realidade depois que elas são meticulosamente vestidas e concluídas. Marta é uma artista com um grande coração, e com uma conexão real com o seu lado criança o que torna possível fazer a sua arte tão bem. Talvez se todos nós ainda dessemos importância ao nosso lado infantil poderíamos ter um mundo melhor, com mais imaginação e amor. Visitem o website www.martacerqueira.com

Das passarelas para as quadras de esporte competindo em elegância, times de diversos países arriscam em nomes e grifes para a confecção de uniformes para os jogos Olímpicos de 2012 Londres. Márcio Rodrigo Delgado @marcio_delgado

Nos últimos meses virou moda falar dos Jogos Olímpicos em Londres. Se o trânsito atrasa, foi alguma obra relacionada ao período esportivo que vem por aí. Se o transporte público sofre alguma interrupção é algum reparo que está sendo feito. Se o aluguél aumenta, foi por causa dos jogos também. Mas a moda, na sua pura essência, nunca esteve de fato, tão próxima do evento mais esperado do ano e esta edição dos jogos olímpicos, programada para acontecer em Londres de 27 de Julho a 12 de Agosto vai ser lembrada como o ano em que as grifes decidiram vestir os atletas dos pés a cabeça. Em Março a estilista Stella McCartney apresentou o uniforme que os atletas do Reino Unido irão usar nos Jogos Olímpicos de Londres e que foi confeccionado a partir de material esportivo da Adidas. Cerca de 500 atletas olímpicos e 350 paraolímpicos vestirão o novo uniforme que foi lançado com o mesmo requinte dos desfiles da alta costura na Torre de Londres, uma fortaleza real da capital inglesa construída em 1078 às margens do rio Tâmisa.

Vermelho da discórdia – a criação bem que tentou inspirar-se nas cores da bandeira do país, com todas as equipes e atletas, inclusive a seleção de futebol, usando uniformes com desenho semelhante. Mas nem mesmo dois anos de pesquisa e desenvolvimento garantiram a Stella, filha do ex-beatle Paul McCartney, a aprovação de público e crítica. A imprensa logo apontaria que a falta da cor vermelha no material esportivo, que ficou restrita a detalhes na gola e nas mangas de algumas modalidades é uma afronta a Gales, que, assim como Inglaterra, Escócia e Irlanda do Norte, integra o Reino Unido. A cor quase esquecida também é usada por Gales em seus uniformes de rugby e de futebol. Mas o dever de casa mal feito da estilista aparentemente tem implicações que vão além do resultado estético: segundo o psicólogo esportivo Robert Barton em entrevista ao jornal inglês "The Guardian" o uniforme foi infeliz ao deixar a cor vermelha em segundo plano e a decisão pode inclusive vir a influir nos resultados atingidos pelos atletas. Em 2005, Barton escreveu um relatório que conclui que a

performance dos esportistas é melhor quando usam vermelho. ‘Obviamente ela criou o uniforme olímpico sob o ponto de vista da moda e não levou em conta os possíveis efeitos que as cores podem ter no desempenho humano. Mas se levarmos em consideração que há justificativas para o efeito da cor vermelha, comprovadas por cientistas, o resultado final foi um erro’. Com mais estudos em andamento sobre o quesito cores e seus impactos, outro psicólogo esportivo, Dr. Victor Thompson, também acredita que a Grã-Bretanha tenha perdido a chance de dar uma mãozinha aos atletas da casa. “Quando o esporte significa tanto para uma nação e a vitória é decidida em milésimos de segundos, nós deveríamos estar fazendo de tudo para ajudar os nossos atletas a conseguir o resultado desejado”, defende o psicólogo explicando que usar a cor vermelha aumenta a auto-estima, contribui para uma atitude mais agressiva e faz com que tenhamos uma sensação de domínio mais apurada – algo que independente de jogos olímpicos facilmente explica o sucesso dos vestidos e batons vermelhos entre o público feminino ao longo dos anos.

jogos olímpicos de Londres-2012

Outro jornal da Inglaterra, o ‘The Independent’, foi mais além e definiu o uniforme da seleção inglesa como ‘o pior uniforme esportivo da história’. Esta não é a primeira experiência de Stella trabalhando com a Adidas. Há alguns anos atrás a estilista lançou com sucesso uma linha esportiva. Moderna, Stella McCartney reagiu às críticas através do seu Facebook mesmo, defendendo que a sua intenção foi manter a linguagem e a força da bandeira, mas usá-las de forma mais delicada. ‘Olhando para a história dos uniformes britânicos, este é o que tem o maior uso da bandeira e da cor vermelha desde 1984", garante a estilista. Grifes na passarela esportiva: Stella McCartney está muito longe de ser a única sensação na passarela dos jogos olímpicos de 2012 em sua parceria com a marca alemã Adidas. A seleção de diversos países parece ter ido buscar inspiração na moda para agregar valor ao desempenho dos seus atletas e os nomes de estilistas famosos, antes confinados a revistas de moda, estão em alta

demanda na Vogue tanto quanto nas publicações esportivas. Os Estados Unidos optaram mais uma vez pelo clássico uniforme da grife Ralph Lauren para a cerimônia de encerramento do evento. A África do Sul está apostando na grife japonesa ERKE para a disputa dos Jogos Olímpicos de Londres e também nos Jogos do Rio de Janeiro, em 2016. A Nike patrocina a seleção brasileira nas duas ocasiões. E tem país que está indo mais adiante e abusando dos nomes de peso do mundo da moda. A grife italiana Prada, por exemplo, está por trás do uniforme que os times de iatismo e vela da Itália estarão vestindo durante a competição e o estilista italiano Giorgio Armani é o responsável pelo uniforme da equipe italiana para os Jogos Olímpicos de 2012. A paixão de Giorgio Armani pelo esporte, aliás, é algo que renderia a grife, em 2004, a linha esportiva E7. Seja qual for o resultado dos jogos, em Julho e agosto deste ano, no que depender do quesito moda já tem time competindo seriamente à vitória.

With the arrival of Spring, and Summer around thecorner, what comes to mind is what our feet are going to wear on the next few months.

Ahead you will read the history of Havaianas the flip flop that invaded the world and for sure will be in everyone's summer list, and also the next sensation on Nike's new running shoes, the lightest shoes ever invented, the Flyknit, to hit the stores in a few weeks, just on time for be the shoes that every runner will want. A must have! Welcome!

AboutUS is taking you to the best to come. Nike Flyknit revolutionizes running by rethinking shoe construction from the ground up Informed by athlete insights and employing a new proprietary technology.

For your feet only!

Spring-Summer must haves Yarns and fabric variations are precisely engineered only where they are needed for a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper. With all the structure and support knitted in, the Nike Flyknit Racer’s upper and tongue weigh just 34 grams (1.2 ounces). The whole shoe weighs a mere 160g (5.6 ounces) for a size 9, 19% lighter than the Nike Zoom Streak 3, a shoe worn by first, second and third place athletes in the men’s marathon at the 2011 World Championships. Nike Flyknit upper is also engineered for precision fit, creating a feeling of a second skin. NIKE has created an everyday running shoe, the Nike Flyknit Trainer+, which at 220 grams or 7.7 ounces, will bring the weight and fit benefits of Nike Flyknit to runners of all levels.

Havaianas flip-flops are on consumer’s feet in 85 countries On the verge of celebrating its 50th anniversary, the brand takes irreverence and the Brazilian spirit worldwide; about 4 billion pairs have already been sold since its creation The Havaianas brand is part of the portfolio of Alpargatas, one of the most traditional companies in Brazil, founded 104 years ago. When Havaianas were created in 1962, Alpargatas’ idea was to create footwear that fit in any Brazilian’s “wallet”. The products were inspired by a traditional Japanese sandal called Zori, which was comfortable and made with fabric straps and woven rice straw. The Zori’s sole, with a texture similar to that of rice grains, inspired the creation of Havaianas. With a simple design and low price, Havaianas are made from resistant rubber. The phrase, “they don’t deform, the straps don’t come loose and don’t smell” became vey-well known in the 70’s, with the commercials featuring the Brazilian comedian Chico Anysio. In the 80’s, models in four tones and white insoles were available and became popular among the poorer classes. With a simple design and low price, Havaianas are made from resistant rubber. The phrase, “they

don’t deform, the straps don’t come loose and don’t smell” became veywell known in the 70’s, with the commercials featuring the Brazilian comedian Chico Anysio. In the 80’s, models in four tones and white insoles were available and became popular among the poorer classes. They were sold in plastic bags and sometimes placed next to cleaning material and almost always in places with little visibility at the points of sale. To differentiate themselves, some people from higher classes created fashion, turning the Havaianas insoles down and making them one tone. In the early 90’s, Alpargatas reinvented Havaianas’ positioning. The company created Havaianas Top, making them available in cheerful colors and aligned with fashion trends. The change was also seen at the points of sale – with more attractive packaging and communication – and at the company, where the work with opinion formers and journalists became even more active. The agency AlmapBBDO assumed Havaianas’ account and, together with Alpargatas, created irreverent advertising campaigns focused on the consumers.

That was when the signature “Havaianas, everyone wears them” was born. The strategy of investing in a product mix and marketing took the brand to consolidate itself as an international mania, becoming a synonym for happiness,relaxation and, especially, the Brazilian spirit. The TV campaigns were fun films where well-known celebrities were “spotted” wearing the sandals. Malu Mader, Vera Fisher, Carolina Ferraz, Marcos Palmeira, Raí, among others, revealed that they wore and liked the product. In the magazine campaigns, the colors would catch consumers’ eyes in equally original ads. And the interventions didn’t stop. In 1998, the Soccer World Cup inspired the launch of Havaianas Copa, a new model with a small Brazilian flag on the strap. The expectation that the Brazilian all-star team, “canarinho” (canary), would be the champion after the success in 1994 was Alpargatas’ great bet. The World Cup ended (and the Brazilians did not win the trophy), but the model remained and, due to the great success of the new product, it started being called Havaianas Brazil.

A CHILD NEED OF ACCEPTANCE

By Deo Britos

cepted? Acknowledge your child as unique, respecting their individuality. Express your love for your child, let the child know that you love and really enjoy it. Accept your child's friends, the home should be a place where she can freely bring their friends and where they like to go. Let him know you appreciate his friends. Leave to demand perfection from their children. When we recognize that we are not perfect we make mistakes and show sincerity to the children. Treat your child as a person of worth Use words like: excuse rather than the get out of my may!. Please, instead of get it to me, Thank you instead of silence implied that he did nothing more than his duty. The child does not feel accepted by their parents becomes vulnerable to destructive pressure group. She struggles for acceptance by others. The way the child is accepted in the first years of life determines in part the esteem of herself and others when it reaches adulthood. If the home environment includes a happy and joyful acceptance of the child, she feels valued and strong. (Research book: The seven basic needs of the child.

Only when the child feels accepted by parents he will feel accepted by others and by God , because children develop problems when they experience a lack of acceptance; The critical constants cause the child to create feelings of rejection, failure and inadequacy. Compare the child with another conveys a lack of acceptance. Children are not all the same and compare them is a great injustice. The continuous comparison creates feelings of inferiority. Overprotection of a child in general contributes to their sense of non-acceptance. How many times you say, "Son I do not want you to enter the water until you learn to swim" How, then will he learn? The lack of protection is less dangerous than over protection. If you wait too long the child can create feelings of non-acceptance. If you impose to the child to reach a certain level of behavior, that can make him feel inadequate. This does not always mean yielding to the whims of the child. The unacceptable behavior needs limits. Acceptance means to respect the feelJohn M.Drescher, Publisher Christian ings and personality of the child. world.) What to show your child that he is ac-

Networking

The month of May is so far marked by a series of great events. The number of businesses networking in the Orlando Community, is only proof that joining forces is the magic key for success, but also a great tool to spread the word about your business, your attitude and success. Business today involves a number of skills that makes it hard for the small entrepreneurs to achieve the goals they need, in a small period of time, but the resources available like the internet, facilitate comunication and networking giving them a powerful weapon , even for the beginners. Let’s see what is going on on this great Orlando business web

New York Life and Accent Brokers joined forces to reach out for the Brazilian and Latin market, in a strong partnership. New York Life and Accent Brokers Inc. have entered into a strategic alliance partnership that will provide Accent's clients with access to products and services from New York Life - a leader in the insurance industry for over 167 years. Monica Franchi-Souza will be providing New York Life's financial planning services such as Retirement Planning, College Funding, Mortgage Protection, Lifelong Income Plans, and Long-Term Care Insurance, which add to the array of services that Accent already provides its existing client base. Two very important fronts are opening, job opportunities and learning to plan your life from the financial point of view. Accent Brokers Insurance will be able to offer New York Life Insurance as well, and Monica F. Souza is the Brazilian face for the company ( NYLife) in Orlando, offering Home, car, life retirement plan, and free guidance. Looking for a career, or financial advice, New York Life is here to stay, and support the Community. The Latin Campain is strong, and in the last few months, Hector Perez, New York Life Senior Manager, has done nothing but work hard and promote the company, covering every angle possible to achieve his goal of giving the Latin Community, something they have never experienced before. Many of us are sometimes shy, or scared to look for financial information, and against what many people think, it is not necessary to be rich in order to need fi-

nancial advice, but if you start maybe it will teach you to have a little more, and help yourself with college for kids or grand kids, retirement planning, securing and growing the little you have. It is all a matter of where do you want to be in a few years from now. Think about it! Today one partnership was celebrated and many more will come, hopefully many new careers and also financial goals.

The announcement was made at RDV Ice Den, the official training and practice site of the Orlando Solar Bears.

To me Buzios - Rio de Janeiro Brazil Written by Simoni Lucena Photos by Marcio Lucena.

For our family is always a difficult decision to choose an alternative travel option that isn’t by the water when we go on vacation. First because we love the ocean, second because we live in the mountains and finally with a vast coastline seductive as ours, we always pass on the other options as far as other states or even overseas With an extention of seven thousand kilometers on the Brazilian coast, 635 of it are in Rio de Janeiro. The state is second only in size to the coastal Bahia and Maranhao. And here, at Cantos & Encantos, we register one of the most enjoyable tours we've ever done, the charming Buzios. Keeping the simplicity of a fishing village and at the same time allowing the sophistication of an international resort, Buzios attracts visitors from around the world. Much of its success owned to the actress Brigitte Bardot, who in the 60s took refuge in the region and the fishing village gained international fame. In Orla Bardot, the actress remains today, immortalized in

a bronze sculpture in size, which used to enjoy the beach Frame. Other sculptures can also be appreciated, adding beauty to the walks of late afternoon, as the three fishermen who collect network artificial island of stones. They are images that recall the importance of preserving traditional fishing and so realistic, to deceive the visitors at first glance. We recorded the enchantment of children around the artwork. Búzios is dotted with 23 beaches of breathtaking beauty, as few strokes as well Geribá, with bars on the seafront with an effervescent tourism. and the lmost deserted like, Brava beach, where the strong waves make it a favorite among the surfers. All of rare beauty, where water can be colder or lukewarm, and color can be dark green to a crystal clear blue. Those who prefer windsurfing or kite surfing, or simply stretch out in the sun and unwind, you can choose Rasa beach. Another option that also involves the ecological importance of the region is home to the Sierra Emerências, part of the EPA (Environmental Protection Area) of the Pau-Brazil, the largest and most important book of this tree in the state of Rio de Janeiro. They are walking trails through the Atlantic, on foot or motocross, where you canenjoy the exuberance of nature, wildlife and many other breathtaking views from atop the hillsides. For these and other, it is almost impossible not to register the charms of our eight thousand and five hundred kilometers of coastline.

Você vai se sentir como se você estivesse montado no ombro do Homem-Aranha quando saltar sobre a mais popular atração da Universal Orlando.

O Homem-Aranha, que reabriu em Março, com sensacionais efeitos. Uma combinação perfeita de ação ao vivo, 3-D e veículos em movimento levam você a uma aventura completamente imersiva em que o Aranha resgata a Estátua da Liberdade do Sindicato Sinistro.

Esses passeios de emoção lançam pilotos a 15 andares de altura, através de espirais e de cabeça para baixo - em velocidades de até 62 mph.

Verbolten, Busch Gardens, possui a maior montanha russa que já era parte do parque temático, recentemente renovado na aldeia de Oktoberfest. O principal detalhe do passeio é a envolvente queda livre de 90 metros que promete alguns minutos de loucura que farão seu estômago dar uma volta. Tem uma coisa por alturas? Gosta de sentir o seu estômago sair pela boca? Six Flags Magic Mountain em Valencia,

Califórnia, tem uma das mais imperdíveis atrações para você, abrindo nesse verão. A história do passeio é que você está fugindo da Krypton Tower, onde o arqui-inimigo do Superman te aprisionou. Você será transportado até o topo de uma torre de 400 pés em uma gôndola sem fundo, em seguida, ter uma queda livre ate quase o fundo em uma velocidade de até 85mph. Conceito simples, uma execução assustadora. O parque aquatico em Santa Claus, Indiana, acrescenta à sua longa lista (18, para ser exato) de atrações de água nesse verão o Mammoth Water Coaster que o parque o considera como a mais longa do mundo. Sente em uma balsa de 9-pés que desliza, como que por magia, ao topo de cada morro, após uma queda. Você nunca sabe o caminho que você estará enfrentando nos canais de frente, de costas ou de lado - e às vezes você fica completamente no escuro. Para um passeio de água, este parece muito emocionante. Aproveite o verao que esta chegando e se puder visite as atracoes , elas prometem thrill e sucesso!

DOCINHOS MODELADOS

1 copo de leite em pó integral 1 copo de açúcar de confeiteiro aproximadamente 1/2 copo de leite condensado corante comestível em gel *Comece juntando o leite em pó com o açúcar , *em seguida coloque o leite condensado (quase toda a medida) *amasse bem ate que desgrude das mãos( se tiver muito seca coloque o restante do leite condensado) * colorir com o gel comestível *se ao colorir a massa perder o ponto acrescente açúcar aos poucos ate dar o ponto de novo. Agora e só começar a diversão modelando os docinhos. A dica e começar com formatos mais fáceis como maçãs , laranjas, pimentas e etc. Aqui estão algumas fotos de trabalhos que fiz, só pra que voces possam se inspirar e deixar suas festas mais bonitas com doces deliciosos! Boa sorte a todos! Marta Thompson from "Treats come true"

HAND MADE PARTY TREATS 1 cup whole milk (powder) 1 cup confectioners' sugar approximately 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk dye edible gel * Start adding the milk powder with sugar, * then put the condensed milk (almost the entire quantity) * knead well until it pulls away from your hands (if it gets dry, place the rest of the condensed milk) * Color it with edible gel * when coloring the dough may miss the consistance point, just add sugar gradually to get to the point again. Now start the fun modeling the sweets. The hint is to start with easier formats such as apples, oranges, peppers and so on. Here are some pictures of work I did so you ocan get inspired and make your parties more beautiful with delicious sweets! Good luck to all! Martha Thompson from "Treats come true" Marta Thompson

When giving this chance to write about the Orlando music scene, a million ideas ran through my mind on what to write about. Finally I decided that the best way to shine light on our city would be by exposing the heros of our music scene. This month’s big shout out goes to the “VENUE”. There are so many night spots that support indie music but one stands alone in my eyes. Club 57 West from day one has dedicated its venue to local artist and bands like no other. When I 1st started South Coast Records, Amy and Anthony (The Owners) opened their club and their hearts to us. We were just a small company then but with the downtown exposure, we were able to build a big fanbase in Orlando. They are doing their part for Indie music. In order for our city to grow musically, we must unite as a city musically. 57 West and other clubs like it, are the foundation for our city to be a major force in the music Industry.

Stroll down Celebration is inviting no matter what, add an Art Festival even better. The festival had a wide range of artistic photography, paintings, exquisite beautiful jewelry, and a lot more. Even if you are not into art, take a look around, watch the kids in the park, or look around while sitting in one of the great restaurants that surround the area, would be more than enough to entertain. According to the City of Celebration, the event was defined by: “Bold and vibrant paintings, contemporary and whimsical art, life-size sculptures, photography and jewelry are among the many works of art that will be featured along the quaint brick-lined streets of Celebration Town Center when the city’s annual art festival returns April 21 -22, 2012. Market Street will be transformed into a gallery style outdoor art extravaganza complete with 100 of the finest artists from thirty different states. Admission is free and open to the public. Festival promoter Howard Alan Events, producer of many award-winning juried art fairs throughout the country and the founder of the original Celebration art show, is thrilled to return with this premier art affair. “We are very excited to return to Celebration with a top rate show and the finest artists in the country,” says Howard Alan, founder of Howard Alan Events.”
