Regional airline passengers across the U.S. could soon be impacted by a grow‐ ing shortage of pilots. Transportation economist Dan Akins told Travel Weekly that “it’s a crisis that is exploding right now” and one that is not expected to im‐ prove anytime soon. Republic Airways, which operates American Eagle, United Express and Delta Connection flights, has been plagued by a substantial num‐ ber of monthly cancellations (as high as 9%) attributed to a decline in the avail‐ ability of pilots. More specifically, a scarcity of applicants completing train‐ ing at flight academies and a flurry of re‐ tirements in perspective are converging to create the deficit. According to Flight‐ path Economics, 18,000 pilots are pro‐ jected to retire from the four largest carriers in the period extending from 2014 to 2022. Pilots currently flying for regional carriers will fill the vacancies left by many of the mainline pilots retir‐ ing. They, in turn, will need to be re‐ placed by pilots graduating from flight training schools. To keep up with growth at both low‐cost carriers such as Frontier and Spirit and the Big Four air‐ lines, new pilots will need to be added to the roster. “We don’t have enough capac‐ ity in this country to train enough pilots to meet the demand,” Akins told Travel Weekly. Other forces compounding the problem are low early career wages, the financial burden of flight training, and a recently promulgated Congressional rule mandating that pilots operating com‐ mercial jets complete 1,500 hours (a six‐ fold hike from pre‐2013 when the number was 250) of flight training. Con‐ trast this with foreign airlines, where pi‐ lots are not required to meet the 1,500 hour requirement and are offered attrac‐ tive salaries, sometimes higher than six figures.

In the last two months, Hilton World‐ wide tested at select hotels a new cancel‐ lation policy imposing a $50 fee on clients who canceled reservations post‐ booking. As reported in Travel Weekly, the 60‐day trial was driven by frustra‐ tions experienced by both owners and guests and the prevalence of apps offer‐ ing eleventh hour hotel bargains, thus making it possible for customers to lo‐ cate those discounts and then cancel their current reservations. Another ap‐ proach that Hilton has adopted to de‐ crease cancellations involves extending discounts on non‐refundable, pre‐paid rooms at some of its hotels. Courtesy of NUA Robotics, travelers can now enjoy the luxury of hands‐free luggage. Projected to be available to con‐ sumers by 2017, the cutting‐edge, smart carry‐on luggage, which relies on a cam‐ era sensor to move alongside its owner and Bluetooth technology, will require neither pulling nor pushing. Simply fol‐ lowing the traveler like a robotic pet, the NUA bag features weight tracking, a GPS, a charging station, and an anti‐theft alarm.

In its recent annual report, the National Restaurant Association lists the following menu trends as taking center stage in 2016: Locally sourced seafood and meats; 2) fast casual concepts introduced by chefs; 3) locally grown produce; 4) hyper‐local sourcing; 5) minimally processed food and natural ingredients; 6) environmental sustainability; 7) healthy children’s meals; 8)new cuts of meat; 9) sustainable seafood; 10) artisan/homemade ice cream; 11) spices and ethnic condiments; 12) authen‐ tic ethnic cuisine; 13) estate branded/farm items; 14) artisan butchery; 15) ancient grains; 16) ethnic‐inspired breakfast items; 17) homemade/fresh sausage; 18) arti‐ san/homemade pickles; 19) food waste management/reduction; and 20) food trucks/street food. The National Restaurant Association compiled the results after surveying 1,600 chefs across the country. Patrons can also expect to find more restaurants with back‐ yard gardens or sprout rooftops. Examples of chef‐driven menu items include fried chicken sandwiches and fast‐casual noo‐ dles. As reported in Eater magazine, other trends which did not make the top 20 list include meal delivery kits. The survey also found that the trend towards such greens as kale, coconut water and quinoa will be edging downward.

Health & Wellness Health & Well-Being According to the latest study published in the journal PLOS One, all four yoga poses, particularly the downward dog po‐ sition‐ augment pressure on the eyes and pose risks for patients afflicted with glau‐ coma, an eye condition affecting 2.7 mil‐ lion Americans over 40. The research, which was headed by Dr. Robert Rich of the Big Apple’s New York Eye and Ear In‐ firmary of Mount Sinai, focused on ele‐ vated intraocular pressure (IOP), one of the leading factors for glaucomatous dam‐ age and the sole one capable of being mod‐ ified to slow or avert glaucoma progress. Both glaucoma patients and volunteers showing no eye‐related disease were asked to perform a number of inverted yoga positions, including the downward dog. Both groups experienced a higher IOP in all four yoga poses, with the highest pressure exhibited during the downward dog. “While we encourage our patients to live active and healthy lifestyles, including physical exercise, certain types of activi‐ ties, including pushups and lifting heavy weights, should be avoided by glaucoma patients due to the risk of increasing IOP and possibly damaging the optic nerve,” Dr. Ritch told Medical News Today. Study author Jessica Jasien pointed out that, in view of the fact that “any elevated IOP is the most important known risk factor for development and progression of nerve damage to the eye, the rise in IOP after as‐ suming the yoga poses is of concern for glaucoma patients and their treating physi‐

cians.” She added that “glaucoma patients should share with their yoga instructors their disease to allow for modifications during the practice of yoga.” A report by the Centers for Disease Con‐ trol and Prevention recently found that 89% of adults and more than 90% of chil‐ dren in the U.S. exceed the recommended daily intake of sodium‐ placing themselves at higher risk for hypertension and cardio‐ vascular disease. Most of the sodium con‐ sumed derives from restaurant meals and packaged, processed foods. As CDC Direc‐ tor Dr. Tom Frieden told Medical News Today, “The finding that 9 of 10 adults and children still consume too much salt is alarming.” The 2015‐2020 Dietary Guide‐ lines for Americans sets the limits for sodium at 1 tsp per day for individuals over the age of 14. Of the 33% of Americans with hypertension, only half of them are manag‐ ing it well. Sodium intake was found to be the highest among men (98%) and white adults (90%). Both calorie and salt con‐ sumption peaks in the 19‐50 age bracket. Equally disturbing was that in the popula‐ tion most at risk of suffering a stroke or de‐ veloping heart disease, 75% exceed the recommended daily limit of 2,300 mg of sodium. As reported in Medical News Today, it is imperative that food processing companies reduce the levels of salt in their products. The report also encourages health practitioners to assist patients in lowering their consumption of sodium. Consumers can also find tips on reducing sodium in their diet by visiting the CDC’s website.

Trade & Commerce Trade & Commerce According to a PwC report, India is ex‐ pected to outpace China for the second year in a row among emerging market economies (Turkey, Indonesia, Russia, Mexico, Brazil, China and India) and to re‐ port a 7.7% growth this year. Unlike the G7 nations (Canada, Italy, France, Ger‐ many, Japan, the U.K. and the U.S.), which are forecast to grow at the most rapid pace since 2010, the E7 emerging coun‐ tries are expected to experience slow growth than their usual rate but faster than the G7. “We expect the US recovery to switch into a higher gear in 2016, while the UK will also enjoy continued con‐ sumer‐led growth. We should also see at least the beginning of the end of the Euro‐ zone crisis. The once‐mighty BRICs, how‐ ever, will have another tough year in 2016, with the notable exception of India,” PwC UK Chief Economist John Hawksworth told The Financial Express. This year, China’s GDP growth is forecast to stand at 6.5 percent as growth in exports and manufacturing will slow gradually, says PwC. By contrast, India‐ buoyed by re‐ cent reforms such as its Reserve Bank’s cut of the policy rate from 8% to 6.75% in 2015 will boost investment growth and consumption this year. With the lifting of caps on foreign investments, India’s weak manufacturing sector is also expected to grow. Full Steam Ahead, Yara Zakharia, Esq.

Financial Goals for 2016 START SMALL | CONTINUED FROM P.1

they start. The excitement of going to the gym, hiking the trail, or oiling up your bike chains generates adrenaline for your 2016 regimen as you start your workout rou‐ tine with unbridled enthusiasm. Unfortu‐ nately, sooner rather than later, the excitement wears off and the weariness sets in; you’ve burnt yourself out on exer‐ cising, and you have only reached the month of February. It is commonly said that your body is a temple; I say it’s a city, and Rome wasn’t built in a day. Go into your 2016 workouts by setting small goals such as “I’ll head to the gym four times this week” or “I’ll run 20 miles total by the end of the week,” not “I will run a marathon with four months of training, even though I’ve never run so much as a 5K.” It is good to have the long term goals, but without the short term vi‐ sion, your workouts will fall flat. Knowledge is Power Nearly half of all resolutions revolve around self‐improvement, according to re‐ search institution Statistic Brain. Lan‐ guage learning softwares, teach‐yourself‐ an‐instrument booklets, and many other self‐guided teaching tools have become readily available to appease our appetite for knowledge. Sadly, many of us will quickly lose interest in learning another language or becoming proficient at play‐ ing guitar. Keeping with the theme that a little practice goes a long way, make resolutions premised on practicing a certain amount of times a week or minutes in a day. Say‐ ing “I want to practice piano 20 minutes per day” seems much more achievable (and much less ambiguous) than “I want to learn to play piano by June.” That way, you’ll be satisfied that you stuck with something rather than obsessed with the ephemeral goal of becoming an accom‐ plished musician. Love is in the Air—and Your Goals Not only is Valentine’s Day just a short month and a half away, but almost 30% of Americans are already thinking about love‐related resolutions. They want to find love or improve their current relationship. It is and will remain the little things that make good relationships great (and not worrying about the little things but doing

them). For those seeking love, keep an open mind and try a date once every two weeks; using an online site can boost your chances of continually landing a date until you find a keeper. If you are already in a relationship, try resolving to say “I love you”—and mean it—at least once a day (rather than just “more often”), or find a way show your appreciation each day. The small things will add up to strengthen the foundations of your relationship, and your happiness will follow suit. Plus, it’s fun to try to find new ways to make someone smile. A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned Another popular resolution relates to money, with roughly 38% of Americans wanting to change their financial situa‐ tion, according to a recent Gallup poll. Get‐ ting out of debt, spending less, and saving more are monetary trends we all intend to follow. However, many consumers will fall victim to unattainable goals they set early on in the year, possibly even faring worse off than they did in 2015. Keeping in mind that you must have enough money to pay your bills, feed your‐ self and those dependent on you, and cover all other necessities of life, refrain from putting all your extra money toward your overflowing credit card bills if you have only been paying a couple of bucks each month toward that debt. Instead, try choosing a small‐ish, realistic number that still presents a healthy challenge and pay that amount on the same date each month. Watch the number go down slowly without drastically disrupting your daily life and possibly causing a different set of problems. Keep focused on the long term goal of paying off the bill, not how much you are paying. The same goes for saving money – don’t vow to save every penny if you have never saved much money before. Instead, choose a small amount and put it away somewhere smart. Starting small can yield big results for all of your goals in 2016 and help you stay on track to building a more fulfilling life. While focusing on small goals is a sure way to put you on the road to success, sweating the small stuff isn’t. Make 2016 a year of balance!

sense of awe as you walk in and take in the white drapes plunging from the ceiling, surrounding a stunning and dimly lit chandelier; the mix of wood and marble textures throughout add character to the restaurant, while creating a peaceful set‐ ting that removes you from Miami’s hustle and bustle. As we took our seats in the center eat‐ ing area, we were taken aback by the won‐ derful service. The hostess graciously greeted us and kept us updated on our table. Our waiter came to us to introduce himself within seconds of us sitting down; we informed him that it was our first visit and asked him to please guide us through the menu – which he did enthusiastically and with a thorough knowledge for each selection he suggested. Ushering in the night were two signa‐ ture primis (appetizers), the Calamari Frito Misto, $11.75, and the Spicy Shrimp and Eggplant, $12.95, each distinctly fla‐ vorful. The calamari was fried to a golden per‐ fection, full of a rich, creamy flavor, prob‐ ably due to the soaking it undergoes in buttermilk and egg yolk 24 hours prior to being fried in Italian spices. The kick, how‐ ever, differentiates it from any calamari I had ever ordered – and I love a good cala‐ mari – as it is stir‐fried with a zesty Cajun sauce, garlic and pepper shrimp sauce, served with a freshly made garlic aioli and red sauce. The spicy shrimp and eggplant comple‐ mented the calamari divinely with its deep fried texture and Cajun spices, fin‐ ished off with a drizzled pepper shrimp sauce. Each bite was an experience, with just the right amount of spice to please a spice‐lovers’ palate and yet, remains en‐ joyable for someone who prefers to steer clear of any hot foods. Next came the 2012 SketchBook Caber‐ net Sauvignon, a specialty wine from Men‐ docino County, California and exclusive to Brio Tuscan Grille. We sipped on the smooth, dark burgundy wine, savoring its unexpected soft flavor, a perfect accompa‐ niment for what came next – the Gor‐ gonzola Lamb Chops, $29.95 and Pasta Fra Diavolo, $17.95 When the lamb chops arrived, we were

pleasantly surprised by the stunning pres‐ entation. The chops were seasoned to per‐ fection with a little olive oil, green spices and steak seasoning. They were posi‐ tioned in such a way that they created a tepee over the garlic mash potatoes. The meat practically fell off the bone, cooked to a tender perfection and accented by the roasted peppers and a mushroom marsala sauce drizzled over the entire dish. When the Pasta Fra Diavolo arrived, we questioned if we could even continue eat‐ ing. The portions were so generous, we were full halfway through the lamb chops, but when the pasta was placed in front us, the sweet scent of lobster butter over‐ whelmed us and instantly opened up our palate. Each bite was rich in flavor and yet light in texture, a staple Italian character‐ istic for any pasta dish. By the time we willingly plowed through the last meal, our waiter came to us with a variety of mouthwatering dessert selections. We settled for the Dolchino Trio, $10.50, an option allowing you to sample three petite versions of Brio’s “grande” dessert options. We chose the Tiramisu, Cheesecake and Crème Brule‐ all three flavorful, light in texture, and absolutely mouthwatering. For the record, I’m not even a tiramisu fan, and I found myself scraping the dish clean. Between the food presentation and unique and flavorful options, I would eas‐ ily categorize Brio as a foodie restaurant, comparable to some of Miami’s top dining establishments, and we were ready to pay the price that accompanies that sort of an experience. You can imagine our shock when we learned that the bill for four glasses of wine, two appetizers and two entrees amounted to only $120. Combine this reasonable fare with a stellar am‐ biance and a high caliber service, and you’ve struck gold. The greatest part is that the impeccable service continues long after you leave the restaurant, when they pack your leftovers in a microwavable to‐go box. It may seem trivial, but sometimes, it’s the simple things in life that make the biggest impact – such as avoiding dirty dishes when it’s time to indulge in the leftovers. In addition to the sumptious meal we

El talento del director Lilo Vilaplana y el alma de dos actores de pura cepa: Paulina Gálvez y Alberto Mateo. Nadie te conoce como yo dará voz a las relaciones abusivas en la pareja e im‐ pactará en el corazón de la ciudad con el arte hecho conciencia. “Lo que en un inicio parece ser una co‐ media con cierto matiz sexual, con unos divertidos y cotidianos diálogos entre los dos protagonistas, un hombre y una mujer atractivos, de mediana edad, ella desnuda en una camilla y apenas tapada con una sábana y él observándola; se va develando como una compleja trama donde habrá que averiguar por qué los protagonistas comparten ese frío espacio”. Este suger‐ ente inicio es apenas un aperitivo de la trama en la que nos sumergirá el texto del reconocido dramaturgo y director, catalán Roger Peña Carulla. Esta aventura comenzó cuando el autor envió el texto a Paulina Gálvez, para que levantara el proyecto en Miami. “La obra me atrapó desde que la leí porque em‐ pieza como una comedia negra y luego va

Six hair trends men and women should explore in 2016 Photo credit: hairstyle-design.com

BY: EDYNA GARCIA EDYNA@INYBN.COM

T

he New Year is always accompa‐ nied by a surge of motivation to improve ourselves in all realms of life, and what better way than to start with personal appearance. It’s a proven fact (well, hardly a fact – more like a solid, superficial belief of mine) that personal grooming is the optimal way to kick start positive change in your life, because feeling sexy, trendy and youthful will spark a sense of personal confidence that will trickle into professional endeav‐ ors and personal relationships. Step one to upgrading your look is to play with your greatest accessory – your hair. Here to ac‐ company your journey are a few great trends to explore in 2016. For Men: Beards –Facial hair has been slowly making a comeback for the last few years. We’ve seen the ‘hipster community ‘ make the beard its own, with men growing out their facial locks to a length that would make Moses himself envious. This year, however, the beard is making its way into the professional world, reestablishing it‐ self as the epitome of manly fashion. Com‐ bine a well‐groomed beard or sleek mustache with a clean, short haircut for a professional and masculine vibe that’ll chisel out your jawline.

the vintage chic, and with that comes the reintroduction of one of the chic‐est hair‐ styles known to women – the Bob. Made famous by the infamous Anna Wintour, the blunt bob is back and making getting dressed that much easier for the modern woman on‐the‐go. Now worn with shorter layers, the bob is a fresh, stylish and sim‐ ple hairstyle that can be worn in countless ways (curly, wavy or straight) and with just a slightly off‐center part.

The Comb-over‐ Made famous by David Beckham and later adapted by Justin Timberlake, the comb‐over is no longer a new trend, however, it has be‐ come a staple in the fashion world. This sleek look was sported all over the Spring 2016 runway, offering a timeless look ap‐ propriate for men of all ages. The key to achieving this look is to keep the sides of your hair short, and allowing the top to grow to length that will achieve the look you’re aiming for. Manageable for straight, wavy, or curly hair, the comb‐over offers various options for all hair types: It can be worn spikey, as made famous by David Beckham.

tion of the comb over, men now have the option of embracing their natural locks and allowing their curls and waves to grow freely (because curly hair, don’t care, right?). Significantly less mainte‐ nance than the comb over, textured curls are a wash‐and‐go look tailored to the man with existing curly or wavy hair. In order to achieve this look, all you need to do is wash your hair and add matte hair mouse or gel to better define the curls and add that extra bounce. For Women: Photo credit: Getty Images

Worn with short or medium length hair for a more contemporary look, women now have the option of side swept or blunt bangs to add a touch of chic to your everyday look.

ouble Edge es mucho más que una compañía teatral. Formada por 20 miembros de los cuales 11 son permanentes, y liderados por su alma máter, Stacy Klein, fundadora y di‐ rectora artística desde 1982; también se dedica a la formación, el intercambio cul‐ tural y la interrelación con la comunidad. “Si es que hay algo por lo que vale la pena vivir, es por contemplar la belleza” decía Platón. Eso fue precisamente lo que sentí este verano al ver uno de los montajes de Double Edge, Once a blue moon, un trib‐ uto a América Latina y al Realismo mágico, inspirado en Imagining Argentina de Lawrence Thornton, otros textos de Isabel Allende, Gabriel García Márquez, y del propio Carlos Uriona, actor y codirector artístico de la compañía, de origen ar‐ gentino. La pureza del verde y el aire puro de la comarca fueron sólo un aperitivo

comparado con la magia que encontraría en un espectáculo fuera de lo común. La representación se iba sucediendo en dis‐ tintos parajes de la granja: el río, las col‐ inas, pastos, jardines e interiores. Tan pronto veías a los actores en casetas o bar‐ cas en el río, como al rato, acudías a ritmo de carnaval a contemplarlos actuar sobre árboles; o de pronto en el patio interior los intérpretes, colgados de cuerdas, con‐ jugaban la acrobacia con el verbo. Una producción visual e imaginativa recreada en sets creados por artistas locales, inter‐ nacionales y artesanos de la zona. Los tex‐ tos en inglés eran capaces de sumergirnos en la magia de América Latina. Una obra teatral que podremos seguir disfrutando. “El verano próximo continuaremos am‐ pliando Once a blue moon y explorando SEE DOUBLE EDGE| P.9

ese material y nuestras conexiones con América Latina”, afirma Uriona. Al ver esta joya me pregunté: ¿cómo una compañía estable de Boston decide mu‐ darse a un lugar donde el censo en 2010 apenas llegaba a los 1800 habitantes? En este lugar “hemos encontrado un espacio de búsqueda donde poder concentrarnos y hacer foco, un lugar descontaminado”, explica Uriona. “A ello se sumaba una zona agraria accesible en costos”. Desde su fundación los objetivos de Double Edge “se han cumplido con creces” afirma Uri‐ ona. Su misión ha estado imperturbable y reforzada con el paso de los años: el firme compromiso de “crear arte de la más alta calidad”. Pero lo más interesante de estas pro‐ ducciones teatrales es que también van de gira. En otros lugares “lo adaptamos de acuerdo al terreno y al público que encon‐ tramos, pero utilizando las mismas piezas centrales, y adaptándolo, recreándolo en cada caso” y contando con artistas vi‐ suales locales, músicos, o estudiantes de teatro. “Buscamos, la participación de la comunidad local”. Uno de los trabajos que se podrá ver próximamente es The Grand Parade of the 20th century, que estará del 4 al 7 de febrero en el Alexander Kasser Theater de la Universidad de Montclair. “Este mon‐ taje tiene como marco algunos de los tra‐ bajos plásticos de Marc Chagall, y como espinazo un pantallazo histórico del siglo XX desde nuestras vivencias como artistas y los recuerdos nuestros o de nuestras fa‐ milias”, cuenta Uriona. Este montaje mez‐ cla una vez más sonido, proyecciones, acrobacia, actuación, música y canto. “También estamos comenzando a llevar de gira trabajos anteriores como The Odyssey, Shahrazad (basada en Las mil y una noches) y ahora Once a blue moon”.

Double Edge se dedica también a los en‐ trenamientos, los intercambios culturales y la interacción con la comunidad. Todo ello entroncado siempre en el centro, “la experiencia teatral, y en un proceso de auto revelación. El entender a los actores como artistas, como un compositor, o poeta o artista plástico. El lugar unifi‐ cador, desde donde se dispara todo es el entrenamiento”. Prueba de ello es el pre‐ ciso trabajo de sus actores, milimétrica fil‐ igrana donde la fisicidad cobra protagonismo. Algo entendible al ver la formación de su fundadora Stacy Klein, con Rena Mirecka, la actriz principal del Teatro Laboratorium de Jerzy Grotowski, o su tesis doctoral sobre el trabajo de Eu‐ genio Barba y el Odin Theatre, entre otras influencias. Por ello su oferta formativa es tan importante. Proponen desde inten‐ sivos en invierno, del 1 al 7 de enero de 2016; en primavera y en verano; a 2 pro‐ gramas de inmersión por año de 3 meses de duración, así como 3 programas inten‐ sivos de menor duración. A ello se agre‐ gan inmersiones avanzadas que podrían durar de un año a dos, residencias, work‐ shops y conferencias en universidades, museos, teatros o centros culturales, y lo que llaman “conversaciones, diálogos con otras personalidades del sector de la cul‐ tura u otros sectores”. Al igual que una perla escondida en el molusco, Double Edge está entre colinas pero completamente abierta al mundo. Un trabajo de máxima calidad, propuestas imaginativas que mezclan múltiples lenguajes, un entrenamiento esmerado y una comunidad orgullosa y consciente de los beneficios que les aporta, son sólo al‐ gunas de las razones por las que invito al lector a que abran la concha y descubran la perla: Double Edge Theater. www.doubleedgetheatre.org

Five Ways to Save Money in the New Year BY: SARAH MASON SARAH@INYBN.COM

T

he majority of people in this country want more than they cur‐ rently have; specifically‐speaking, they want more money. It comes as no surprise considering that the average American has $225,489 worth of debt— spread out among credit cards, mortgages, auto loans and student loans. It’s time to stop the spiral into financial failure and begin to climb out of the dungeons of debt. Saving isn’t always easy, which is even more apparent when you see the num‐ bers, but it is possible. With the New Year underway, here are a few helpful tips to jumpstart your way to savings success. Control Impulse Spending A large reason for credit card debt can be traced directly to impulse shopping and spending. You saw those new shoes you have been looking for since a year or the latest remastered version of your fa‐ vorite movie recently released on Blu Ray 3‐D; whatever the excuse, you have spent money you didn’t have on something you didn’t need. After a few dozen times mak‐ ing this same mistake, maybe your savings are depleted, and your credit card debt has tripled—but it’s not all due to those pesky finance charges and high APRs. Learning to tell yourself “no” in response to these impulse buys is a must, which is much easier said than done, but not im‐ possible. Start by carrying fewer credit cards with you when you go shopping; the less op‐ portunity to plunge further in the nega‐ tive, the better. If you can avoid it, try not to carry credit cards at all. Instead, stop at an ATM and take out a set amount of cash. That way, you have a limited amount of money you can spend during your shop‐ ping expeditions, and it will hurt a little more when you pay the tab, making you less likely to make impulsive purchases. See Where Your Money Goes Another big problem with using credit cards for all purchases is that it doesn’t feel like we are spending money, and we have no idea where it is really going. For a month, document where your money is being allocated by saving receipts and bank statements. Once you have compiled all of your expenditures for the previous month, you will be able to ascertain where your hard‐earned cash is ending up. Some banks will even do this for you. Log in to your online account at the end of a billing cycle and locate the handy pie chart that

will indicate to you where all of your cash goes. Set Attainable Goals Now that you have a better idea of where your money is going, evaluate your financial situation and set realistic goals that can easily be achieved. If you have an excess of $1,000 per month, don’t plan to put $1,000 away; such a tactic is unrealis‐ tic and leaves you with no room for error; you will be disappointed (or hit with a bill you can’t pay) before you know it. Even if the only sum of money you can set aside a month is $20, make it a point to do so and stick to your plan. After a year, you’ll turn that into $240, and after five years, you’ll have $1,200. A little can go a long way; just don’t over stress yourself and keep the goal attainable. Put Your Money to Work for You So, you have decided how much money you can set aside each month, but now you don’t know what to do with it. One SEE TIPS FOR SAVING MONEY| P.11

safe way to start saving money is to put it in a savings account. Some of the best in‐ terest rates for savings account can be found at online‐only banks (with interest rates that are currently at a .75% yield on some sites!) If you don’t trust online bank‐ ing, check out a local bank or credit union; typically smaller institutions have higher yields on savings accounts and CDs.

Have Fun with Saving Money Saving money should be fun. Making a game of saving money is a great way to keep you interested and insure the sav‐ ings will continue. Some fun ways to save money include the “52 Week Game” and “The Week Day Game.” With the “52 Week Game,” set aside the dollar amount for the corresponding week of the year, i.e. week

Steven and William Ladd: Mary Queen of the Universe

1 is worth $1, week 2 is $2, week 3 is $3, and so on until you’ve set aside $1378 for the 52 weeks in a year. “The Week Day Game” is also a weekly savings game, only this time you choose a day, say, Wednes‐ day. Each Wednesday, save an amount of money equal to Wednesday’s date. For ex‐ ample, the first Wednesday of January 2016 is the 6th, so you would save $6; the

next is the 16th, so you would put away $16. If you follow this pattern for all of 2016, you would save $832 (you would probably never forget what day of the week it was either). With some determination and work, you can start saving money with little ef‐ fort; but be careful, you may even have some fun while saving.

BUSINESS HUB

Twin brothers revolutionize shopping and the concept of a personal assistant for all

BY: EDYNA GARCIA | EDYNA@INYBN.COM

I

magine life with a personal assistant – someone who fetched your lunch, booked your flights and found you the best deals for that new sweater you needed. Imagine never having to search for a hote, or set foot in a mall, compare prices or track a package again – All you have to do is take a few minutes to send a few text messages and someone else ac‐ complishes these more menial tasks that consume so much time. It sounds too good to be true, and yet, it is true, thanks to the latest iOS app, Mezi, that launched June 2015. Created by twin brothers and serial en‐ trepreneurs, Swapnil and Snehal Shinde, Mezi serves as your go‐to app that com‐ pletely simplifies the shopping experi‐ ence. Rather than having to run errands, the app, which they describe as “half‐ human,” offers you a personalized shop‐ ping experience that provides you the right product, at the right price in the quickest way possible. “You’ll see a lot of mobile shopping apps today, but those are meant for people that love shopping,” explains Co‐Founder and COO, Snehal. “Mezi was built with a vi‐ sion; if you don’t have time for shopping or don’t like shopping, Mezi is the perfect app for you. If you’re a professional or a mom with kids, and you want someone to take care of these things for you, while making sure it’s done in the right way, Mezi is the app for you.” The twin brothers describe the app as a user‐friendly, shopping ninja that requires solely three simple steps: 1) you submit your request in question form, 2) You are presented with options that meet your needs, and 3) You make your selection based on the three options your personal shopper and/or travel agent provided you and voila, your purchase is complete. With an emphasis on simplification and a customized shopping experience, Mezi also stores your credit card information and preferences through state‐of‐the‐art artificial intelligence. The app will know if you prefer window seats or a nighttime flight, boutique hotels or accommodation rentals via Airbnb. It will also cancel your flight or hotel room reservation and track your packages.

“Let’s say you want some fashion boots; when the boots have shipped, Mezi will send you a simple text message saying ‘hey, your boots shipped today.’ When they arrive, it’ll tell you ‘hey your boots ar‐ rived, I hope you like them,” explains Swapnil, Co‐Founder and CEO. He then of‐ fers elaborate explanation of the app: “you tell Mezi, ‘Can you help me book a flight from Los Angeles to San Francisco?’. The next question that Mezi will ask you is borrowed from its artificial intelligence and it identifies your intent, detects that you like to travel, you want to fly from LA to San Fran… It’ll ask you questions, like which dates you’d like to fly out and fly in? Are you a single adult flying, or are there more people traveling with you? After that, you will clear those requirements and once that is done, we know your in‐ tent, we know exactly what you’re looking for, and then the request is passed to an expert travel agent within the company. That personal agent will use our tools, powered by artificial intelligence, to figure out the best deals for you across all mer‐ chants that are selling that particular air ticket.” The revolutionary concept was born earlier this year when Snehal’s wife picked him up from San Francisco. On their ride back to Sunnyvale, she wanted to stop by a few stores to collect a few items and asked for his help. “It dawned on me to make a few phone calls and figure things out, order food and stuff like that, and then it hit me. Rather than me doing all this work, why don’t I just text message someone who can take care of all this work for me, and that’s how the idea came to my mind,” he explained with a hint of humor in his voice. He shared the idea with Swapnil, and the two discussed it over the course of two months. When they finalized the concept, they realized they had struck gold and wasted no time on getting started. The brothers hired a team of talented engineers, many of whom have worked with Google, Yahoo, Amazon and LinkedIn to generate a state‐of‐the art technology. They also made sure to recruit travel agents with 5‐15 years of experience and personal shoppers from high‐end retails

stores, such as the Banana Republic, Bloom‐ ingdales, Nordstrom, and H&M, to ensure top quality expertise when requesting travel arrangements and personal items. Since launching this past June, the app has received an overwhelming amount of support from consumers and has since been made private. “Very quickly the response we’re getting

is very encouraging to the extent that we had to lock access to the app. The only way you can use the app today is if we unlock you exclusively or if you’re invited by an existing user,” explains Swapnil. The Mezi App is available exclusively for iOS software. To learn more about the app and the services it offers, visit http://www.mezi.com/.

F

ounded on creating cultural and meaningful connections over a shared experience, Dragonfly Restaurants is the brainchild of Hirofumi P. Leung, a first‐generation Japanese/Chi‐ nese immigrant, and Song Y. Kim, a sec‐ ond‐generation Korean immigrant. With two existing Florida locations, Dragonfly concepts are inspired by izakayas, which are modern‐day interpretations of Japan‐ ese mom‐and‐pop taverns. This February, a third location will open in the highly an‐ ticipated Downtown Doral project (5241 NW 87th Avenue) with a spotlight on an artisan fish market. Leung’s vision is to have each location encompass one of sev‐ eral founding culinary principles of Japan‐ ese cuisine; the brand’s flagship location in Gainesville focuses on sushi while the Orlando location concentrates on ro‐ batayaki (robata grill). “Our goal is to bring flavorful dishes and creations to Miami while building those shared moments between the friends and family we value,” says Leung. “In keeping with that same motto of cre‐ ating experiences, we encourage guests to step out of their comfort zones and em‐ brace a different culture’s traditions, not just amongst friends, but also with food.” The menu at the new space, boasting more than 6,000 square feet, is heavily in‐ spired by Leung’s dedication to preserv‐ ing the distant memories of visiting the fish market and street vendors back home with his father before preparing family meals. The dining room will feature Japanese comfort food‐inspired izakaya dishes. Dishes found on the menu include okonomiyaki (Japanese egg seafood pan‐ cakes) and teishoku (meal set) for a casual afternoon to a robatayaki grilled whole chicken (neck‐to‐tail) tasting menu, fresh market oysters, as well as sushi and sashimi selections prepared by Dragon‐ fly’s master chefs. Tradition will go beyond the parame‐ ters of the dining room to include a pro‐

gressive beverage program, which inte‐ grates Japanese flavors, culture, and inspi‐ ration to enhance the connection between the guest and spirits. The program will feature a dedicated Japanese ice program, a rare and award‐winning Japanese whiskey list complete with eight of the top ten Japanese whiskeys, a seasonal Omakase cocktail list and a unique sake and shōchū list. The program is built to celebrate the meticulous practice of Japanese beverage making in an artful, au‐ thentic and approachable manner. The restaurant’s adjoining fish market will nod to the famous Tsukiji Fish Market and the many popular street vendors in Japan. Market items will range from house‐made rubs to seafood sourced from local and exotic waters across the globe. In addition, it will offer kits to recreate Dragonfly‐inspired meals at home, bento boxes to‐go, salads, rice bowls and educa‐ tional seafood workshops. The artisan fish market will have sev‐ eral street fare inspired grab‐and‐go bento boxes and rice bowls prepared fresh throughout the day. The market will also feature a variety of house‐made and unique or hard‐to‐find boutique items such as, Japanese White Shoyu and Ken‐ tucky Bluegrass Soy Sauces, artisanal Kika Treats, whole local fish, fresh exotic catches and special house‐blend rice mixes, sauces, dressings and rubs. Prices will range from several dollars to market pricing on seafood. ABOUT DRAGONFLY IZAKAYA & FISH MARKET The restaurant will be open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and for Saturday and Sunday brunch. The restaurant will be open for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m. The fish market will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., daily.

Unique orchids blooming in the Rainforest FAIRCHILD UNVEILS AN ORCHID ODYSSEY IN THE SIMONS RAINFOREST

With spectacular colors, intricate shapes, and awe‐inspiring patterns, or‐ chids have long been one of Miami’s most beloved flowers. Now, visitors to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden can see an array of these unique plants as part of the Orchid Odyssey exhibition in the Simons Rainforest. The collection com‐ prising numerous species and varieties, including Cattleya, Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, Dendrobium, and Vanda, will be on view now until April 30, 2016. The exhibition is a partnership between Fairchild and the American Orchid Society, which moved its international head‐ quarters to the Garden in 2012. It was originally founded in 1921 and currently has more than 10,000 members and 600 affiliated international orchid societies. Fairchild’s horticulture team arranged

each orchid to complement the colors and plant life of the Simons Rainforest, the only outdoor tropical rainforest in the continental U.S. As guests follow the wind‐ ing paths, they will encounter meandering streams, cascading waterfalls, ancient ferns, and now a beautiful assortment of vibrant orchids. Fairchild is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables, FL 33156 and is open daily from 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (fes‐ tival hours may vary). Admission is $25 for adults, $18 for seniors 65 and up, $12 for children 6‐17, and free for Fairchild members and children 5 and under. Eco‐ discounts and military discounts are avail‐ able.

FOREVER TANGO IN CONCERT ON JANUARY 22 AT AVENTURA ARTS & CULTURAL CENTER Photo courtesy of Christine Feeley

From the Shubert Theater on Broadway to stages across the nation, Argentinian cre‐ ator and director Luis Bravo brings his world‐wide hit Forever Tango in Concert to Aventura Arts & Cultural Center on Friday, January 22 at 8 p.m. Renowned for its sizzling and steamy theatrical staging of brilliant orchestrations paired with two glamorous and elegant dancers, Forever Tango was called “A must see” by The New York Times. Celebrating the tango as “a feeling that you dance,” audiences will be mesmerized as stories are told through the flick of a leg, tug of the hand, tap of a foot or arch or an eyebrow. Sensuous and sophisticated, pas‐ sionate and dramatic, tender, yet violent, the music and dance reflect a culture and a

way of life. It is said that the feelings of the tango are so internal, that although it is per‐ formed in pairs, each partner dances alone. USA Today raved, “Forever Tango shows that style is more than steamy – it’s smart, even funny... a sensuous, seductive, pleas‐ ure.” Tickets are $40 and $45. Buy tickets online at aventuracenter.org; by phone at 877‐311‐7469; in person at Ticketmaster outlets or at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center box office Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. and 90 minutes prior to each performance.

cluding software, marine equipment, en‐ gine components, fertilizers, hunting equip‐ ment, nutritional supplements, pet products and others. In addition, the firm manages a substantial portfolio of trade‐ mark registrations in the U.S. and in over 60 countries. In copyright matters, the firm has briefed landmark cases to the U.S. Supreme Court and drafted complex international agreements. The firm’s extensive back‐ ground in software and Internet matters al‐ lows its practitioners to understand how best to register related copyrights in order to obtain necessary protection for its clients. Because of its location in South Florida, the firm is well‐versed in interna‐ tional issues including cross border mat‐ ters, multinational litigation, offshore

corporate structures, overseas registration and enforcement in devising strategies for its clients. For the fifth year in a row, World Trade‐ mark Review ranked the firm as one of the best trademark law firms in the world, one of only six law firms in Florida to receive this honor. The firm is a member of the Na‐ tional Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) and its In‐ tellectual Property Practice Area Commit‐ tee where it helped develop a unique Collaboration Agreement that provided a novel model for legal services in the intel‐ lectual property field. The firm is also a member of the American Intellectual Prop‐ erty Association (AIPLA) and the Interna‐ tional Trademark Association (INTA).

VOCALOSITY – THE ACA-PERFECT CONCERT EXPERIENCE PLAYS PARKER PLAYHOUSE ON JANUARY 17 All-star a cappella group Vocalosity includes West Palm Beach native Matthew Bryan Feld Vocalosity – The ACA-Perfect Concert Experience comes to Parker Playhouse on Sunday, January 17 at 6 p.m. The 12 pow‐ erhouse vocalists that comprise the new all‐ star a cappella group are West Palm Beach‐native Matthew Bryan Feld, James C. Jones, Hannah Juliano, Kelli Koloszar, Cheeyang Ng, Gerianne Pérez, Nattalyee Randall, Tracy L.J. Robertson, Chesney Snow, Bryant Vance, Nicole Weiss and Amy Whitcomb. Vocalosty’s debut self‐titled album will be released January 15 by Uni‐ versal Music Classics. Vocalosity is the all‐new live concert event from the creative mind of artistic pro‐ ducer Deke Sharon (Pitch Perfect, The SingOff) that takes a cappella to a whole new level! This fast‐paced production features an all‐star ensemble of diverse young vocal‐ ists singing some of today’s chart‐topping hits in brand‐new arrangements that set a new standard for 12‐part harmony. No genre of music is off limits in the world of a cappella and Vocalosity covers them all – from tenth century Gregorian chant and classical choral to barber shop quartet and bouncing doo‐wop, all the way to an exploration of the current sound of a cappella with music from The Beatles, Bruno Mars and more. Combine that with direction and choreography from Sean Cur‐ ran (Stomp original cast member) and you have an exhilarating evening of song unlike anything ever seen or heard, live on stage. “Over the past few years, a cappella has grown from what was once considered a stuffy Ivy League activity to a pop culture phenomenon beloved by people of all ages,” says Sharon, who serves as artistic di‐ rector, music director and co‐creator of the production. “Vocalosity is my dream team, an all‐star ensemble of diverse young singers each with a unique style and per‐ sonality. Most vocal groups aspire to create one sound and style, homogenizing the character of their singers, but this group is the exact opposite, weaving a variety of tap‐ estries from different combinations of

voices and characters.” Hailed as “the father of contemporary a cappella” by Entertainment Weekly, Sharon has served as on‐site music director and vocal producer for the smash hit films Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2, as well as vocal producer of NBC’s The Sing-Off. Vocalosity member Feld attended the University of Miami and then received his master’s in jazz performance at the Manhat‐ tan School of Music. From 2012‐2014, he toured internationally with Voca People, an eight‐person a cappella group. To learn more about Vocalosity, please visit http://vocalosityontour.com/. Tickets are $35.50 ‐ $55.50.
