Gran Apertura Bowlero en Miami

 Artículo es patrocinado por Dime Media, pero todas las opinions son mías. Desde que yo era una niña me encantaba ir a jugar boliche con mis amistades. Nunca se trato de quién jugaba mejor sino de lo chévere que la pasabamos cuando estabamos juntos. Cuando leí que Bowlmor AMF, el líder mundial en el entretenimiento de boliche había invertido millones de dolares en renovar su centro ubicado en el Dolphin Mall de Miami llamado Bowlero enseguida pensé en lo divertido y perfecto para los niños que hago “mentoring”. Cuando llegamos a Bowlero Miami había una atmósfera chic, fascinante, que los chicos mencionaron que pareciera estar en un club. Estaban tan emocionados de estar ahi. Esta vez pude llevarme a cinco de los chicos. Empezamos jugando Laser Tag, que por cierto solo uno de ellos lo había jugado antes, así que fue una nueva experiencia para los demás y que mucho nos divertimos. Después nos fuimos a jugar boliche que también fue una nueva experiencia para la mayoría de ellos. Me fascina escuchar a los chicos reirse. Me da una satisfacción enorme verlos gozando. Después de los juegos fuimos al restaurante dentro del lugar y mientras cenabamos hablamos de lo mucho que disfrutamos estar en Bowlero a su vez planeando cuando regresaríamos de nuevo. Nuestros hijos son pequeños por tan poco tiempo. Tomen el tiempo de crear momentos especiales, momentos que los chicos se llevaran con ellos toda la vida. Les recomiendo Bowlero para crear esos momentos inigualables así sea con sus familiares, fiestas privadas, eventos corporativos o como hice yo hoy me que pedi permiso a los padres de estos chiquillos para compartir una noche muy especial de la cual se que nunca se olvidaran.

Now is the time to Prepare for your Child’s College Education

Now is the time to Prepare for your Child’s College Education

 This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. All thoughts are my own. There is no equal love to the one we have toward our children. We want the best for them. We are their first teachers and we hope that we do a good job at parenting. I think the most important thing of all is that our children know without a shadow of a doubt that they are loved no matter what happens. As parents we think ahead and plan for everything in our children’s life by day, weeks, months and their future. Everyone agrees that receiving a college education without incurring a substantial amount of student loan debt allows students to focus on building a better future for themselves. Since 1987 the Florida Prepaid College Plan has grown to become the largest and longest continuously running prepaid plan in the nation thanks to Stanly G Tate’s exceptional vision and dedication to Florida’s future generations. A Florida Prepaid College Plan allows families to prepay the cost of college tuition, required fees and dormitory housing based upon projected future costs. When your child is ready for college, the plan pays the tuition and registration fees covered under the plan at any Florida College or State University. If your child attends an out-of-state college or private college, the plan will pay the same amount as it would pay at a public college or university in Florida. Did you know that college graduates benefit from a higher employment rate and stronger earning potential? A student with a bachelor’s degree can earn $1.6 million more in their lifetime than a student with only a high school diploma. Investing in their future today will ensure a brighter tomorrow. Not only does a Florida Prepaid College Plan give you peace of mind about your child’s education, it will make you feel great about their future. We understand that saving for college can seem stressful and just downright scary. Relax, and know we’re here with the tools to help you find the right plan for you. Myfloridaprepaid.com is the resource for helping you in every way possible. Our College Savings 101 interactive Conversation is a fun and informative way to learn what Florida Prepaid Plan options might be best for you. Our online Pricing too is a quick and easy way to instantly calculate your preferred Prepaid Plan cost. Here is an example of one of the Florida Prepaid Plans I would like to share with you today. I really think this is a great idea, check it out. 1 Year Florida University Plan: Now...

Don’t let stigma prevent you from getting tested for HIV

Don’t let stigma prevent you from getting tested for HIV

 This post is made possible by support from the Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign. All opinions are my own. One of my favorite things about working in social media is that I get to inform others about valuable campaigns that are taking place in their community, so they can benefit from them. A perfect example of this is from the Center for Disease Control, Stop HIV Together community outreach event, which took place in Miami. Everyone was invited to get tested for HIV no questions asked and results where given to them on the spot. I really liked the impact this initiative had, as in just a few hours about one hundred people knew their health status. Testing is the only way to know if you are HIV positive but many people avoid testing because of stigma. Knowing your status may empower you to talk openly about what it’s like to get tested and encourage others to do the same. For more information about testing and to find a testing site near you, visit www.CDC.gov/DoingIt The main focus for CDC is to help decrease the stigma associated with HIV. Because stigma leads to marginalization of those that are positive, decreased testing due to the fear of a positive diagnosis, fear of disclosing status and getting treatment, and fewer conversations about safe sex. Ongoing stigma in our communities leads to perceived discrimination, fear and anxiety. It affects the emotional well-being and mental health of people living with HIV and prevents some from getting testes and treated for HIV. Conversations don’t have to be face to face. You can have a big impact by talking about HIV virtually through social media. Whether you blog, tweet, or snap please make sure that your message is speaking out against stigma for example: Don’t use exclamation marks in some context for it may fuel stigma, discrimination, fear and anxiety. Tune in and listen to what others are saying so you may correct myths about HIV by sharing the facts. Avoid words or phrases that promote stigma and misinformation. Here are some preferred terms available in the Let’s Stop HIV Together guide to talking about HIV. http://www.cdc.gov/actagainstaids/campaigns/starttalking/convo.html Personally I think that there is nothing wrong with saving ourselves until we get married, besides it is the most effective way to avoid the spread of HIV. However, if you choose to have sex then you must learn how to practice safe sex by wearing a latex condom each and every time.  ...

Evita Distracciones, Todo Puede Esperar

Evita Distracciones, Todo Puede Esperar

 Me uní a DiMe Media para traerles este mensaje de AT&T pero las opiniones son solo mías. Los automóviles son la invención de transportación que más nos facilita la libertad de ir donde queremos en cualquier momento. Pero también tenemos que entender que puede ser una máquina peligrosa, así que tenemos que manejar responsablemente y evitar distracciones. Manejar requiere nuestra atención centrada en el camino pues es esencial para evitar accidentes y poder reaccionar ligeramente si es necesario. El 83% de los hispanos admite que usan su celular mientras manejan, comparado con el 71% de los estadounidenses en general. Y el 68% de los hispanos textean mientras manejan. Por eso es que estoy emocionada de informarles que AT&T tiene una aplicación gratis en español para ayudarnos a mantenernos enfocados cuando estamos manejando. Admito que cuando estoy manejando y oigo el ruidito ese que me deja saber que me llegó un texto por teléfono me da por mirar el teléfono aunque sea solo para saber de quien es el mensaje. Pero solo esos segundos que me tomaría en mirar a ver quien es, me podrían costar la vida a mi y otras personas completamente inocentes de mi acción tan descuidada. Por esta razón decidí que cualquier texto puede esperar. Les cuento que desde que me comprometí a usar la nueva aplicación de AT&T DriveMode para iPhone y Android ya no tengo que pelearme conmigo misma y ese deseo de enviar mensajes de texto. La aplicación silencia los mensajes que recibo y automáticamente envía una respuesta avisándoles a mis familiares y amistades que estoy manejando. Por lo tanto les recomiendo amigos, que bajen esta aplicación es muy fácil y eficaz. Anoche salí a cenar con mi hijo y una amiga de él y cuando les informé sobre esta aplicación ellos los dos vieron esto http://espanol.att.com/PuedeEsperar/ y bajaron la aplicación a sus teléfonos inmediatamente. Como siempre he dicho nuestros hijos harán mímica de lo que hacemos nosotros. Entonces vamos a darle un buen ejemplo a ellos, después de todo queremos que ellos estén lo más protegidos posible. Comprometete a no textear y a manejar a la misma vez. Tu compromiso puede salvar vidas. Ese texto #PuedeEsperar....
