I had been meaning to check out the Friday Food Truck show at the Progressive headquarters on Old Cutler in Miami for a while now, but I was always working and never got a chance to. It's the first Friday of every month and this first Friday in April, I was off from work, and I was in full attendance with only child. She actually wanted to go, can you believe it?
Does the man who sits at the helm of our sinking state deserve my best manners? Should I have chosen decorum over disgust?

Much like his ability to seamlessly blend rock, funk, and R&B in his music, Prince had the ability to bring together audiences of different groups. Each time I went to a Prince concert, I was joined by rockers, college kids, middle-aged moms and black men in purple fedoras.
Florida is one of the rainiest states in the nation. Although the rain keeps things green and growing, and is often a much-welcome relief from the heat, it can create a hazard for drivers.

Raul Castro erupts in fury at a press conference when asked about the existence of political prisoners in Cuba, he gets entangled in his earphones and comes out with some rigmarole a few feet from Barack Obama, who looks like the owner and master of the situation.

New York City may have the best cultural scene in the world, but there's a lively debate among culturalistas about which city might be second in the U.S.A. Ten years ago, Chicago, L.A., Philadelphia and Boston would be obvious contenders. But today, arguably,...
We have sky-high turnover among caregivers in Florida, and by far the worst home care gap in the country. Sadly, it's no surprise why caregivers in Florida are leaving our profession. I've been working in home care for more than 20 years, but I'm still paid just $10 an hour.

While the dangers of drunk driving are now well known, drowsy driving is still a silent epidemic. Research suggests that tired drivers are responsible for as many as 1.2 million crashes a year which tragically kill 8,000 people. Those numbers are sobering, but hardly surprising given that one study found that being awake for 17 to 19 hours (a normal day for many of us!) causes cognitive impairment equal to having a blood alcohol level of .05 percent (just under the legal limit in many US states). Stay up just a few hours more, and it's equivalent to 0.1 percent -- legally drunk. It doesn't have to be this way, which is why The Huffington Post is teaming up with Uber and Toyota to raise awareness of the issue and help save lives.

"In America," Obama said, "it's still possible for somebody like me... to pursue and achieve the highest office in the land." These words raised an unexpected question to myself: Would a Black Cuban ever become president in the island?
Gender and racial bias -- intentional or not -- in the process of awarding contracts in construction, architecture, engineering and professional services is a major hindrance to small business growth for minority- and women-owned companies.

I might look different, speak a different language, hail from a different country, and see the world from a completely different perspective than he does. But none of that mattered to Sergio; what mattered is that we both share a common passion for music.
