According to travel search engine GoEuro, the world’s most expensive passport belongs to Turkey, with a price tag of $251. This is followed by Australia and Switzerland, whose passports cost $206 and $159, respectively. In fourth place is Mexico, whose passports run for $155- the equivalent of 266 hours of work at that country’s minimum wage. At $135 and tied with Italy, the American passport is the fifth priciest passport. At 10th place is the British passport which costs $110 or £72. Equivalent to two hours of minimum wage, the United Arab Emirates’ passport is the least expensive passport in the world ($14).

Gastronomy & Spirits UK company Deliveroo, which recently launched in Belgium and whose motto is “Proper Food, Proper Delivery”, is offering a delivery service from over 60 high end restaurants and chains to homes and offices in and around Brussels. The company, which is presently operating in more than 35 cities worldwide, continues to expand and plans to launch an IOS application in the coming week. Meals are delivered by bicycle, and customers place orders and make payments online. They enter their address and the desired time of the delivery and choose from a list of restaurants offering delivery in their area. On average, customers wait approximately half an hour, which includes the 7- minute maximum for delivery by the cyclists. Deliveroo’s managing director, Belgium- Mathieu de Lophem- told Food and Wine Gazette- that ‘Bruxellois love to eat out at some of the best restaurants in the city but sometimes, either because of work or family, they cannot. The service is also convenient for a night in or a proper lunch at the office.”

Education In England, top-notch law schools are

offering e-learning law courses, enabling students to work at their own pace and from the comfort of their home and making the legal profession increasingly accessible. As reported in the U.K.’s The Independent, one such leading law school- BPP- which partners with over 50 leading law firms to provide training- has introduced two online programs. BPP law school’s dean Peter Crisp explained to The Independent: “Everyone learns in a blended way now,” Most of our students do prefer a high level of face-toface contact but we make all of our lectures available online, which they can use if they miss a lecture or want to consolidate their learning.” E-learning, which is effectuated through Adobe Connect, offers a live classroom experience. “You can create a very energetic and vibrant online learning community,” pointed out Crisp. At the same time, e-learners can also attend face-to-face sessions on the weekends and in the evenings that can accommodate their schedule. Additionally, e-distance learners pay a fraction of the cost; for instance, tuition for the LLB program (law degree) at The Open University is £16,200, as opposed to £27,000- the typical cost for full-time students enrolled at most universities. The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives offers remote learning programs for the following occupations: chartered legal executives, solicitors, legal administrators, legal secretaries, legal support staff and paralegals.

Health & Wellness As reported in The Wall Street Journal, the Silicon Valley, as well as some law firms, are embracing standing desks as the healthy alternative. Between 200 and 250 of Facebook’s 2,000+ employees use standing desks, and the company is experimenting with treadmill desks, which offer workers the option of walking while working.

Economy & Finances Accelerating Pathways, a new study commissioned by the Citi Foundation, ranks Toronto as the top economy for young people (ages 18-25) among 35 cities across the globe, which were rated on the basis of entrepreneurial opportunities, educational institutions, government programs and youth job programs, among other criteria. Toronto placed first in “human and social capital” and second in government support and employment, outpacing global powerhouses such as Singapore, Hong Kong, and London, in a study that included cities from various regions, including the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America and both emerging markets and developed countries. Citi Foundation president Brandee McHale told The Star that: “Ultimately, the cities that get it right for young people are going to be places that people want to live, businesses want to locate, and really will be seen as the cities of tomorrow that others aspire to be.” In the survey, Toronto scored best for civic engagement, while cities such as Casablanca and Delhi boasted higher scores for start-ups. As reported in The Star, The Economist Intelligence Unit’s global director of public policy, Leo Abruzzese, global director of public policy at The Economist Intelligence Unit, praised Toronto’s programs aimed at helping the youth find jobs and its commitment to equal pay, as evidenced by the city’s smaller wage disparity between women and men as compared to other cities.

Enviroment & Ecology South Africa, which relies heavily on coal to fuel its electricity, is launching innovative projects in an effort to put an end to regular power cut and to diversity its energy sources. Throughout the country, wind and solar energy plants are multiplying as the government undertakes to expand nuclear power. According to The Japan Times, the latter plans to pump an additional 9,600 megawatts of nuclear power into the national grid by erecting eight new reactors at a projected cost of $50 billion. Bidders for construction of the plants include the U.S., South Korea, Russia, France and China.

this faraway land,” said Bairos. “We had all these ideas, and we’d go back and forth ex‐ changing these ideas.” Later on, the two took slightly different musical tracks, and their travels extended in two different directions, but they stayed in touch and met up whenever their sched‐ ules allowed. “We were always best friends,” said Bairos. Together, they hashed over the idea: “What if we just put together a small, fresh, slick ensemble with music that we love, while at the same time will sustain itself through the fact that it’s a very small group with low overhead.” As time went by, the idea became clearer and clearer. “This is the right time to really move this along,” said Bairos. “So after this relationship that began 11 years ago, we found ourselves coming up with a concept of what we wanted, which was an ensem‐ ble.” They received a $75,000 grant from the Knight Foundation, which helped make the dream come alive. “Once it got started, it took off into this really wonderful thing,” Bairos said. Their debut performance in April fea‐ tured 23 musicians at the Light Box Theatre at Goldman Warehouse. Building on that success, they decided to put together a sea‐ son. The Knight Foundation grant is struc‐ tured to self‐produce concerts, but once Nu Deco took off, other organizations reached out to represent them. Their flexibility al‐ lows them to function as a chamber orches‐ tra or as a string quartet. “We’re very flexible,” said Bairos. “In fact, one of our greatest strengths is our flexibility.” Nu Deco Ensemble’s season will kick off with a 4 p.m. concert entitled “Water Music” at the Deering Estate. The season features four more programs – Nu Deco at the North Beach Bandshell with the Spam Allstars on January 28, followed by back‐to‐back con‐ certs at the Light Box, March 3 and 4. The Concert Against Hate presented by the Anti‐ Defamation League at the New World Cen‐ ter is March 5, when the ensemble will return for the last two concerts of the sea‐ son at the Light Box April 29 and 30. All concerts begin at 8 p.m. Hyken grew up in the New York/New Jer‐ sey area; Bairos is originally from Home‐ stead. Both are graduates of Julliard. From Julliard, Hyken went to London for a year at the Royal Academy of Music, and

then at 22‐years old, auditioned for the Sin‐ gapore Symphony. The symphony offered him a trial. He was there for two years. He met Michael Tilson Thomas when the New World Symphony was in Switzerland. “I said to myself, ‘I have to go work with him.’ It was amazing and so inspiring that I ended up coming to Miami to work with the New World Symphony.” Hyken ended up produc‐ ing some concerts for late night events and doing a lot of arranging and dabbling in composing. “I felt there were other aspects of the music industry that I wanted to get involved with, and other genres of music I wanted to explore,” he said. He went back to school and earned a masters degree at University of Miami in media and produc‐ tion and started working almost immedi‐ ately in the music industry. “Jacomo has played my music all over the country, and I’ve had my music played by many world‐ renowned symphony orchestras. He has produced concerts at the Arsht Center and New World Center with different popular artists, and produced a concert for the Knight Foundation. Currently, he is on the faculty of the University of Miami Frost School of Music, a trumpeter, producer, arranger and composer. Bairos has travelled extensively with his career and is an international conductor who regularly works with some of the country’s top orchestras including the Na‐ tional, St. Louis, Atlanta, and San Diego sym‐ phonies. He is also musical director of the Amarillo (Texas) Symphony. “With all these different experiences, like Jacomo said, we knew the time was right to create our own group,” said Hyken. “We started seeing the model of the small groups start to take off – a collective that was flexible; and not just new music but all genres of music,” he said. “We knew the kind of music we wanted to perform and the artists we wanted to feature – not in terms of who we wanted to collaborate with but with whom we wanted to arrange expe‐ riences in all parts of the world to merge and create this new group.” “Our tastes are very eclectic,” added Bairos. “We just love high‐quality music. It doesn’t matter what style it is.” And that eclectic nature becomes the unique twist in the foundation of Nu Deco Ensemble. “Part of our mission is to genre‐ bend the pop world, the jazz world, the clas‐

sical world, the electronic world and stylize it for a classically‐trained orchestral ensem‐ ble,” said Bairos. “This is an interesting thing because no one else is doing that.” Nu Deco Ensemble finds classical young composers who have a voice. “Young com‐ posers today have an unbelievable amount of information about styles. “One of the most interesting things about our country is its jazz roots, and its tradition of import‐ ing European factors,” said Bairos. “America is amazing with all its traditions and styles. Therefore, young composers today – the under 35 crowd for sure – they just know the technology and popular music and jazz, and all these idioms combined with a clas‐ sical platform.” Nu Deco hand picks selections from a range of classical tunes by, say, Johann Se‐ bastian Bach and Aaron Copeland, scales them down, and rearranges them in new and exciting ways for the ensemble. “At the same time, we do genre‐bending where we take something you would never hear at a symphony (like Daft Punk, the French elec‐ tronic music duo) – and make it work,” said Bairos. “It’s a whole bunch of things we’re doing, but it is definitely based off what we believe is great music and great art.” As a 21st century orchestra, the co‐ founders agree that it is important to stay

extremely relevant and vital to their com‐ munity in today’s society. “That’s our goal – to represent today’s society – not yester‐ day’s – not tomorrow’s but today’s in the artistic and social worlds,” underlined Bairos. And for both Hyken and Bairos, musical education is paramount. “A very important part of our mission is giving back to the community and plan to focus on south Miami‐Dade,” said Bairos. “We feel the area has been a bit underserved with musical re‐ sources.” The Nu Deco Ensemble will be playing concerts at local schools. “I believe in Miami and want to help build a cultural city,” added Hyken.

HOLIDAY STRESS | CONTINUED FROM P.1

per took to the streets of Miami in search of the best coping tips when dealing with holiday�related stress. What we found were hilarious points of views, advice and stories. Take a break from your turkey day re� sponsibilities and start your holidays off with a little laugh — here’s what your fel� low Miamians had to say: “Keep the wine or beer stocked up for annoying relatives; don’t get ingredients the days before because you won’t find them. You live in Miami; traffic is as natu� ral to you as crying is to a baby, so try and avoid driving unless it’s to a relative’s house where turkey will be waiting for you. On that note, never sit close to the rel� atives that will annoy you — picture the dinner table as a game of musical chairs and muscle your way in to where you want.� – Alexis Miguez “My brother had just told me the other day something like: nothing like Thanks� giving to remind you why you moved away. He now lives in Gainesville.� – David Ramirez “I am barely coping with work stress, nonetheless the holidays. I would happily curl up into a ball and roll off the face of the Earth and wake up with my face in a plate full of Thanksgiving food.� – Paul Thomas “I cook with wine, sometimes I even use it on the turkey! But seriously, don’t sweat the small stuff. Thanksgiving is about giving thanks. The food, while good, is not really what it’s about. My favorite strategy is, if I host, then I make the turkey and rice and guests bring a side dish or dessert. Makes my life easier.� – Aris Mariela Gonzalez “You’ve never bought a fryer with this 10 year old kid excitement for your first fried turkey. Then you get to Publix or Winn Dixie or Presidente, buy the most beautiful bird – this thing is Food Network beautiful. You thaw it out and inject the adobo with the precision of a surgeon,

leaving every inch covered. You pour that glass of Merlot knowing that the last stage has come, the Frying! Then you walk out� side to the fryer and proceed to lower the Turkey — in your head it’s like the New Year’s ball drop and then it happens! You’ve regressed back to the preschool days, your turkey has become the Square block and your Fryer is the circle hole.� – Cid Fernandez “Last year, I made a “dish� and no one touched it so I drank it all. My dish was al� cohol. Actually, a big batch of special cock� tails.� – Carlos Eduardo Rubio “Want to deal with the stress of Thanks� giving dinner? Just explain that it could be worse — we could be watching a Dolphins game.� – Cid Fernandez “One of my most stressful thing is that I can never find Yukon gold potatoes. It’s a mission and those are the best for the mashed potatoes.� � Ileana Miranda “One time, too many people were in my house and I needed quiet time and I hid in the bathroom. Eventually, that didn’t work and I hid in the car.� – Gabriela Alejandra Ferrer “I actually attended Butterball Turkey University �online� back in 1999 when I cooked my first turkey so I could learn how.� – Joe Gonzalez “Wine, wine and more wine!! Frequent trips to the bathroom...because wine. If stuck in traffic, blast the radio and have a karaoke party in your car then count how many other drivers/passengers start star� ing at you! Improvising when you’re miss� ing ingredients can be a fun game... because wine!� – Amanda Wilmot “With so much in life you can’t control, there’s no need to stress a holiday created to ‘give thanks’ for all you have. If you’re celebrating big (or small) do your home� work and plan ahead. Do any little bit you can before the big day, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy with family and friends.� – Yeimilyn Lorenzo

THANKSGIVING | CONTINUED FROM P.1

T

hanksgiving is a holiday to cele‐ brate being thankful for the things life has to offer . . .or is it to celebrate Pilgrims and Native Americans working peacefully together for common goals? Why do we eat turkey on Thanks‐ giving? Was it even served during the first thanksgiving dinner? Do you know where and when the first thanksgiving took place? For a holiday that we celebrate every year with close family and friends, there are a lot of unknowns. So, here is a list of 10 facts for you to impress your family and friends with during this No‐ vember holiday: 1. The Founding Fathers Had Differing Opinions on the Holiday: Though our first president, George Washington, hailed the celebration, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson weren’t keen on the holiday. Thomas Jefferson is quoted as viewing the holiday as “the most ludicrous idea”. Franklin was very fond of the turkey and tried to make it the national bird instead of the eagle. 2. Only one Native American tribe at‐ tended the First Thanksgiving: Most Amer‐ icans know that the pilgrims had dinner with Native Americans, but that’s about all they know. With so many Native American tribes prevalent during colonial times, most retellings of the story tend to leave out that the Wampanoag Indian tribe was the one present at Plymouth. 3. The First Thanksgiving wasn’t in No‐ vember: Though we celebrate the holiday in November, the first dinner in Plymouth

in 1621 took place during the end of har‐ vest season. In New England, that would not have been well into November, but more than likely at the end of September or sometime in October. 4. The Attire Depicted in Pictures Today isn’t Historically Accurate: Have you been to New England in October? It’s not Miami, and Native Americans weren’t just wearing loincloths around their waists. They would have had furs and full skins to cover themselves from the elements. And the pilgrims? Black and white were signs of wealth in those times; hence, the major‐ ity of pilgrims would have been wearing earth tones such as browns and greens. Oh, and those funny buckled hats were not a trend until several years later either. 5. FDR Played a Role in Setting the Date for Thanksgiving: Franklin D. Roosevelt not only tried to postpone Thanksgiving’s date a week in 1939 to increase retail sales during the Great Depression (which the media dubbed “Franksgiving”), his ac‐ tions led Congress, in 1941, to declare the holiday the fourth Thursday in November. 6. Thanksgiving was once Held in West‐ minster Abbey: A lot of notable things happened with Thanksgiving during WWII, an unusual and one‐time occur‐ rence being a dinner held at Westminster Abbey in 1942. In the church’s 900 year history, this marked the first time a for‐ eign army was invited to inhabit the grounds. I suppose after almost three cen‐ turies, England finally forgave those who were seeking religious freedom. 7. Turkey wasn’t Served During the First Thanksgiving: Clearly, it seems like a holi‐ day staple today; however, that wasn’t al‐

The best part Photo Credit: Christy Lane Campbell

ways the case. During the first Thanksgiv‐ ing, the menu was more likely to have been goose, duck, assorted seafood, nuts, corn, pumpkin (though not in pie form), and car‐ rier pigeon. All of these fowls might have led to the later creation of the Turducken. 8. The First TV Dinner consisted of Thanksgiving Leftovers: That’s right, the first frozen meals came about because C.A. Swanson & Sons was stuck with an ex‐ treme excess of frozen turkeys. What was their master plan with all the leftovers? Package it with some side dishes to try out a frozen meal concept ideal for your mi‐ crowaves to heat up at your convenience. It was first available in 1954. 9. Turkey Does Not Make you Tired During Thanksgiving: While it is widely believed that the tryptophan in turkey triggers lethargy, it is only a myth. The tryptophan levels found in turkey are not

so much higher than those present in other foods that it would induce a coma‐ like state. Furthermore, the tryptophan would need to be digested on an empty stomach to create the sense of tiredness, something most of us are unlikely to have on Thanksgiving Day. 10. The First Thanksgiving Day Football Game was in 1876: So many Americans sit down to watch the Detroit Lions (who play every Thanksgiving) and other teams compete on Thanksgiving Day, but the for‐ mer did not play in the first holiday game. In 1876, Princeton played Yale in the first football game played on Thanksgiving Day after it was declared a holiday. Bust a few of these facts out at your next trivia night or take a moment to appreci‐ ate the truer details of the holiday as you dive into your delicious turkey, cranberry, mashed potatoes, and pies.

INTA Miami es considerada una plataforma internacional de ex‐ posición y promoción de arte Lati‐ noamericano, Español y Portugués con la participación de cincuenta prestigiosas galerías de los Estados Unidos, Lati‐ noamérica y Europa. Con un enfoque en los movimientos de arte abstracto, con‐ creto, neo‐concreto, kinético y conceptual, ésta feria cuidadosamente curada permite un diálogo más amplio entre artistas, cu‐ radores y coleccionistas. Este año PINTA Miami se realizará en MANA Wynwood, una alianza que permi‐ tirá colaboraciones culturales con organi‐ zaciones internacionalmente reconocidas incluyendo la Fundación Frederick R. Weisman con artistas como James Turrell y Ed Ruscha, La Orquesta Sinfónica de Miami y el International Center of Photog‐ raphy (ICP). Secciones: PINTA Modern Curaduría de Osbel Suarez Hay un discurso moderno en América Latina que debe asociarse par‐ ticularmente a la geometría, al arte con‐ structivo y al concreto. La historia de esta

voluntad moderna se sitúa originalmente en el cono sur del continente a finales de la primera mitad del siglo XX. La otra mitad americana, aquella que tiene cuenca al Pacífico también se hizo eco de este movimiento, si bien con un ligero des‐ fasaje general. PINTA Modern insiste en su interés y su apuesta por este apasionante relato que presenta a un continente lejos de su estereotipo habitual, mucho más próximo al orden de lo racional y de la utopía moderna.

Este período cubre un amplio espectro de propuestas, desde aquellas que se ubican en las corri‐ entes de la fotografía moderna hasta las que, como parte de las prácticas concep‐ tuales de los años sesenta‐setenta, forman parte de los orígenes de la sensibilidad contemporánea. Este es un largo período de la fotografía latinoamericana que ha tenido poca visibilidad internacional y cuya investigación ha progresado en el in‐ terior de la mayoría de los países de la región sólo en los últimos años. PINTA Drawing Curaduría de Roc Laseca PINTA Drawing buscará conocer las prácticas del dibujo que se han desar‐ rollado en Latinoamérica, España y Portu‐ gal en los últimos años como formas radicales ‐no necesariamente vinculadas al papel‐ y que entran en contacto con otras disciplinas como la instalación, la es‐ cultura, el video o la performance. El dibujo expandido da cuenta hoy día, y más

que nunca, de la enorme variedad de aproximaciones críticas que la nueva práctica artística tiene en torno a esta dis‐ ciplina tradicionalmente informada por la pintura y la escritura. PINTA Project: Time Sensitive Cu‐ raduría de Jesús Fuenmayor Esta sección presentará una serie de propuestas que indagan en la incorporación del tiempo dentro de la obra, enfocándose en obras sensibles a la relación entre lo temporal y lo espacial. También se quiere que la in‐ corporación del tiempo en la obra fun‐ cione como un detonador que sensibilice al público de la feria a reflexionar sobre las condiciones mismas de su percepción y las paradojas que este contexto trae con‐ sigo. La selección de artistas estará además animada por cuestionar las distin‐ ciones geopolíticas reduccionistas que pretenden proyectar sobre el arte una condición identitaria a priori. PINTA Forum Organizado por Roc Laseca, ésta sección consiste de una serie de charlas que permiten que PINTA Miami sea utilizada como una plataforma que une a artistas, curadores y coleccionistas.

THE CHAMPION’S BENCH

Year Up Leads Young Urban Adults to Success

Young adults from Year Up Information Technology Track participate in weekly skills building seminars at Miami Dade College.

BY: CHARLOTTE MILLER/ CHARLOTTE@INYBN.COM

Y

ear Up, in partnership with Miami Dade College since 2012, operates with the sole purpose of closing the opportunity divide between the “haves and the have‐nots” among young urban adults. By equipping young adults with skills, ex‐ perience and support, the organization helps them reach their full potential. Year Up is a national program and has been ex‐ tremely successful in South Florida accord‐ ing to interim executive director Betty Jeremie. “Across the county, there are nearly six million young adults out of work, out of school and without access to the eco‐ nomic mainstream,” she said. “At the same time, these young people have a lot of tal‐ ent.” There are also several million jobs re‐ quiring post‐secondary education that will go unfilled until the next decade. That’s where Year Up steps up. “We support this mission through provid‐ ing a high support and a high expectation model,” said Jeremie. It’s sad but true – a lot of young adults face social and economic in‐ justice. “Despite talent and motivation, they lack access to higher education and careers that provide them with a living wage. At the same time, the economy needs help,” she said. “Businesses are calling for more and better‐trained talent to compete on the global stage, but there may not be enough skilled workers to meet that demand.” By combining marketable job skills, stipends, internships and college credits, young adults at Year UP have the opportunity to meet their full potential. Year Up offers students a holistic ap‐ proach that focuses on professional and personal development, thereby, setting them on the road to economic and social self‐sufficiency. “That relationship pays div‐ idends to the local economy,” noted Jeremie, who has served as interim executive director since April. She knows first hand what an impact Year Up can have on the career and future prospects of the young adults who participate in the program. In fact, her story is similar to many of the students who are drawn to the life‐changing potential of a Year Up experience. Jeremie was born in Haiti and emigrated to the United States in the late 1980s. “Not only did I have to learn to operate within a new social culture, I needed to identify, build and integrate marketable job skills to achieve financial stability in an unfamiliar and often unforgiving world,” she said. Before coming to Year Up in Miami, Jere‐ mie had joined the Year Up community in Boston and has been a long‐standing and well‐respected member of the organization. During her years of service with Year Up, she has worked with more than 900 young adults in Boston, Atlanta and now Miami. Prior to Year Up, she spent several years in the financial industry at Fidelity Invest‐ ments in Boston. After changing her career to information technology, she worked and

partnered with many community colleges as a trainer and curriculum designer, while continuing in the financial and manage‐ ment sectors. Jeremie, a graduate of University of Mas‐ sachusetts Boston and the University of Phoenix, is fluent in French, Creole and Spanish. Year Up success story David Frederick comes from a family of Haitian immigrants. Before enrolling in Year Up, Frederick and his family were all work‐ ing but struggling to make ends meet. Fred‐ erick was working retail and would take three buses to meet his assigned schedule. He really wanted to continue his education by attending college, but knew he would never be able to afford tuition. He cau‐ tiously took out a student loan knowing that chances he would ever be able to pay it back were slim. Still, he remained positive, responsible and ambitious. He enrolled in Miami‐Dade College and immediately became involved not only helping himself but also others. Frederick served as president of MDC Wesley and Mi‐ nority Students for College Success. He be‐ came involved in local politics and helped organize a walk from Miami to Washington, DC to support undocumented students and spoke on behalf of Haitian youth in front of the White House. “I heard about Year Up at a campus event,” said Frederick. “Time management was my greatest challenge since I was full‐ time in school and still had my retail job.” Year Up taught Frederick how to make a positive first impression, deliver an effective pitch, and take quality notes, but most im‐ portantly, noted Frederick, was to follow the Year Up contract. “Everything counts – from not turning in an assignment to being one minute late,” he said. “The only way to manage my way through the year was to focus on the big goal: to graduate and hope‐ fully be the [commencement] speaker of the class.” “As part of Year Up, I interned at AT&T with the Core Installation and Maintenance department,” he said. “My job was to do in‐ ventory on the trucks, ride with the techni‐ cians to do safety checks, and complete weekly audits on the technicians’ perform‐ ance. At AT&T, I learned to never give up, no matter how difficult a situation might be. Most importantly, seize every opportunity, especially our challenges because it’s the obstacles that teach us the most.” Today, Frederick works as a retail sales consultant for AT&T. “I like helping my cus‐ tomers. Every day, I adopt the attitude, I can help you with that.” Frederick has been rec‐ ognized as one of the top ten percent sales‐ person in his district and was recently selected to participate in a leadership pro‐ gram with AT&T. Frederick is now a husband and a father and has purchased a home. “I am now more capable of helping my family in ways I

couldn’t before,” he said. Next, Frederick would like to earn a Master’s degree in In‐ ternational Relations or International Law, “and someday, I want to be an ambassador to Haiti so I can showcase Haiti to the world as a resilient nation,” he said. Frederick succeeded in becoming the commencement speaker for Year Up for his graduating class. “I told the incoming class that if their determination is stronger than their doubt, and their courage is more re‐ silient than their fear, then the doors to suc‐ cess will be wide open,” shared Frederick.

Year Up South Florida's interim director, Betty Jeremie

“I dared them to dream of a better world for themselves, their family and their commu‐ nity.” Big thumbs up to Year Up!

CORAL GABLES HEARTBEAT

AWARD-WINNING PHOTOGRAPHER CLYDE BUTCHER TO HOLD BOOK SIGNING EVENT THE NATURAL WORLD ALONG TAMIAMI TRAIL AT THE CORAL GABLES MUSEUM ON DEC. 3 FROM 7-8PM

T

he Coral Gables Museum, which celebrates, investigates and ex‐ plores the civic arts, is pleased to welcome nationally‐acclaimed and cele‐ brated photographer Clyde Butcher on Thursday, December 3, for a book signing event from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 285 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables. Admission is free and books will be available for purchase in the Museum Gift Shop. For more infor‐ mation, please call 305‐603‐8067. The book‐signing event will introduce The Natural World Along Tamiami Trail exhibit that will open on Friday, December 4th at the Museum and is in conjunction with Art Basel 2015. A solo exhibition by Clyde Butcher, this exhibit encourages vis‐ itors to open their eyes and see the natural beauty that exists along the ‘trail’. Clyde has lived in the Big Cypress National Pre‐ serve for 20 years and as he drove back and forth along Tamiami Trail, he carried a camera in order to capture those special moments of light along the road, with the hope that visitors will see the beauty and remember that it is up to us to see that it remains healthy for the next generation. Butcher’s photographs, which have earned him recognition as the foremost landscape photographic artist in America today, will be on exhibit through February 28, 2016. The Clyde Butcher book signing event and exhibit are being presented to complement the current exhibit: Trailblazers - The Perilous Story of the Tamiami Trail curated by Jon Ullman on exhibit from October 2, 2015 - May 22, 2016. The Tamiami Trail’s history, culture, its devastating impact on the Everglades and plans to mitigate that damage are all featured in this multi-media interactive exhibit featuring images, artifacts, historic documents and film.. Clyde Butcher’s wife and artist Nikki Butcher also have work related to the Tamiami Trail displayed within the Trailblazers exhibit. Butcher’s illustrious photography ca‐ reer was first inspired by an Ansel Adams

exhibit at Yosemite National Park. He began photographing black and white landscapes of California, Oregon, Wash‐ ington, Wyoming, Ohio, and Hawaii. After a successful career, Butcher arrived in the Sunshine State in the late 1970s. He was introduced to the “interior” of the Big Cypress National Preserve and the Everglades by Florida native Oscar Thompson and was then inspired to take black and white photographs of the Big Cypress Swamp. Since then, Butcher’s work has been exhibited in museums across the United States, as well as at the National Gallery of Art in Prague, and, at the request by the United Nations, he pho‐ tographed the mountains of Cuba to cele‐ brate The Year of the Mountains. The award‐winning Butcher has been honored by the state of Florida with the highest award that can be given to a private citizen: the Artist Hall of Fame Award. He received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the North American Nature Photogra‐ phy Association and was honored as the In‐ ternational University Humanitarian of the Year in 2005. Additionally he received the 2011 Distinguished Artist Award from the Florida House in Washington, D.C., and Ansel Adams Conservation Award from the Sierra Club given to a photographer who shows excellence in photography and has contributed to the public awareness of the environment. Butcher has completed six public broad‐ casting programs on the environment of Florida, three of them award‐winning doc‐ umentaries. Much of his work can be seen in his books. His most recent publication “America the Beautiful,” is a table top col‐ lection of his work from across the United States. “Big Cypress Swamp ‐ The Western Everglades,” features images from the Big Cypress Swamp and “Portfolio II ‐ Florida,” is a collection of images from the Sunshine State.

BUSINESS HUB Centralized valet runners, along with Marina Foglia, Executive Director of the BID, in their new uniform

Coral Gables City Commission Reduces Centralized Valet Parking Rates from $8 to $5 to Support the Streetscape Improvement Project Valet Runners Have New Uniforms New Rates Take Effect Saturday, November 28 The Coral Gables City Commission has unanimously voted to approve a reduction in centralized valet parking rates to support the Business Improvement District of Coral Gables (BID)’s Downtown Coral Gables marketing efforts and the upcoming Streetscape improvements project where construction is expected to begin the first quarter of 2016. Taking effect on Saturday, November 28, 2015 just in time for Small Business Saturday, the flat rate has been reduced to $5 for day and night from the previous rate of $8. “This concierge valet service with re‐ duced rates for Miracle Mile will simplify the parking experience for visitors and make it more affordable,” said Marina Foglia, Executive Director of the Business Improvement District of Coral Gables (BID). “As we prepare for the Streetscape con‐ struction in a few months, our goal is to make the shopping experience in Down‐ town Gables pleasurable and minimize the disruption to merchants and their cus‐ tomers.” Valet runners can now be easily identi‐ fied, as they will have new uniforms that in‐ clude red shirts. The shirts will have the BID’s Downtown Coral Gables and Miracle Mile logo on the front, the Valet logo on the

sleeve and Centralized Valet on the back. Centralized Valet Parking is for Miracle Mile only and allows patrons to drop off their vehicles at one of five valet stations on Miracle Mile and pick them up at the station of their choice: between Hillstone and JohnMartin’s, in front of Tarpon Bend, between Benihana and Ortanique, be‐ tween Morton’s and Ale House, and in front of Seasons 52 and Bellmont. Valet fees and tip can be paid either in cash to a valet parking attendant or with a credit card through the Curbstand mobile app on smartphones. Valet parking is free for dis‐ abled patrons with permits. The approximately $20 million Streetscape project on Miracle Mile and Gi‐ ralda Avenue, will among other things, widen sidewalks, plant trees, create garden areas and add outdoor dining along newly landscaped curbs. The plan also calls for benches, kiosks, mid‐block parks, intimate public spaces, and plazas for events and gatherings. The City of Coral Gables is plan‐ ning construction starting the first quarter of 2016, in half‐block increments. The goal is to minimize disruption to merchants and customers.

G

ripping and award�winning film The Verdict will be screened at Aventura Arts & Cultural Center on Tuesday, December 8 at 7 p.m. This critically acclaimed courtroom drama portrays a Belgian man, Luc, who exposes a serious flaw in his country’s ju� dicial system after a procedural error fa� cilitates the release of his wife’s murderer and forces him to take matters into his own hands. Though there is much public outrage after Luc’s wife’s killer is set free, the out� come remained the same. Luc’s fury causes him to stalk his wife’s murderer, whom he eventually kills. Luc then admits all responsibility and demands his case go to trial – facing off with and challenging a court system that already failed him so egregiously. The Verdict premiered in 2013 at the Montreal International Film Festival, where it garnered the award for Best Director. The film also was awarded a Special Jury Prize at the Chicago Film Festival. Rave reviews include Clarence Taul of The Hollywood Re-

porter who wrote, “Belgian filmmaker Jan Verheyen’s (riveting) courtroom drama challenges the viewer.â€? Dennis Harvey from Variety called the film “Compelling, and acâ€? complished,â€? while Mark Adams, Screen Daily, described The Verdict as “A clever and tense courtroom drama.â€? Shelly Isaacs, founder/programmer and commentator for South Florida’s popular CafĂŠ Cinematheque International proâ€? grams, will introduce the film and lead a postâ€?screening discussion. The Verdict is presented in Dutch with English subtitles. Other films in the series include About Elly (January 12), Phoenix (February 9), The Dinner (March 1) and Living Is Easy with Eyes Closed (March 29).
