Friday Food Trucks Invasion Miami

Ayana Malaika Crichlow | May 2, 2016 | Miami
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?

I Called Florida Gov. Rick Scott an A**hole At Starbucks. Here's Why.

Cara Jennings | May 2, 2016 | Politics
Does the man who sits at the helm of our sinking state deserve my best manners? Should I have chosen decorum over disgust?

Prince: A Lifelong Rebel in Music, Style and Societal Expectations

Olympia Duhart | April 27, 2016 | Black Voices
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.

Avoiding Accidents in the Florida Rain

Stephanie R. Caudle | April 27, 2016 | Miami
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.

Cuba: The Collapse

Yoani Sanchez | April 26, 2016 | World
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.

Has Miami Become the Second-Most Artsy City in America?

Lea Lane | April 29, 2016 | Miami
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,...

Fix Florida's Low-Wage Crisis and We Can Fix Our Home Care Crisis

Patricia Walker | April 14, 2016 | Politics
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.

J.J. Colagrande | April 8, 2016 | Miami
This is not an understatement: the Alma Dance Theater is producing some of the freshest most refined art in the city of Miami and it is undoubtedly a matter of time before their troupe tours nationally.

A Wake-Up Call to End Drowsy Driving

Arianna Huffington | April 5, 2016 | Impact
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.

We've Had Enough With Failed Trade Policies

Mark Ruffalo | April 1, 2016 | Politics
Pacts like the recently-signed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), currently sidelined without sufficient congressional support for passage, contain thousands of pages of enforceable rules that would fuel climate chaos and empower corporate polluters to challenge environmental laws across the globe.

Protecting FL Wetlands: If Not Rick Scott, Who Can We Count On?

Sherry Gray | March 29, 2016 | Miami
In a state where most of the land is below sea level and legislators are prohibited from using the "C" word (climate change), you might expect to see consequences of prolonged willful ignorance, and you would be right.

The Obamas and the Blacks of Cuba: Some Questions of Power, Agency, and Representation

Odette Casamayor | March 28, 2016 | Black Voices
"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?

Where Is the Diversity? Florida Government Spending Bypasses Minority Businesses

Lillian D. Singh | March 24, 2016 | Black Voices
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.

An American's Havana Adventure of Discovering Cuba Through Music

Ibrahim Rashid | March 23, 2016 | Good News
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.
