IMO, Person of the Year in Cuba

Yoani Sanchez | November 28, 2015 | World
Over the last 12 months Cuba was visited by a pope, a secretary of state and even by Mick Jagger. However, the person who takes all the palms is not a politician, a religious leader or a rocker. It is a mobile application with a short name and a profound impact on our reality: IMO.

Remembering Hurricane Agnes

Carol A Miele | November 29, 2015 | Miami
In June of 1972, I went on a trip to Miami Beach with my close friend Yvonne, her brother John, his wife Regina, and their young daughter Denise. We booked adjoining rooms at a motel for the week. We planned to drive mid-week to Orlando for our first visit to Disneyworld.

Renee Lo Iacono | November 24, 2015 | Miami
Being the first book fair I have attended as an author, I have to admit how ill prepared I was. That being said, I was curious to learn from the experience and discover how other authors successfully market and sell their books.

I Underwent Cosmetic Surgery for My Body Dysmorphia... And I Wish I Hadn't

Reid Ewing | November 20, 2015 | Healthy Living
Of the four doctors who worked on me, not one had mental health screenings in place for their patients, except for asking if I had a history of depression, which I said I did, and that was that. None of the doctors suggested I consult a psychologist for what was clearly a psychological issue.

Immigration Is the Single Greatest Thing to Happen to This Country

Wilmer Valderrama | November 16, 2015 | Latino Voices
In the United States, the immigrant story is part of the blueprint of our country. It disheartens me to see my community or any other culture under attack. Some presidential candidates do not seem to care that by promoting negative stereotypes, they are alienating one of the biggest voting blocs in America.

From Information to Action: Yoani Sanchez Acceptance Speech for Knight International Journalism Award

Yoani Sanchez | November 12, 2015 | World
I am no longer the teenager who turned her eyes away from the official press and looked for other alternative news sources. I now have new responsibilities. I lead a group of journalists, who every day must cross the lines of illegality to perform their jobs.

'No Really... What Are You?'

The Establishment | November 12, 2015 | Women
I can almost feel my mother's heart break when I'm asked about my family history. I'm proud of my Filipino heritage, and proud to be an American, but when I think of the cost and loss my mother suffered, my pride is twinged with betrayal.

Solar Fight in Florida Heats Up With Mysterious Donor

Nick Surgey | November 9, 2015 | Business
"Consumers for Smart Solar" is the misleading name of the group created to promote an amendment to the Florida Constitution that would protect the monopoly of the utilities.

The People Rejected Keystone XL

Jamie Henn | November 6, 2015 | Green
There was a sense of quiet determination amongst the participants, a feeling that addressing the climate crisis required something more than just emails and petition signatures: it was going to take putting our bodies on the line.

PR Problems and Legal Muscle Don't Always Mix 

John P. David | November 6, 2015 | Miami
It baffles me when companies hire lawyers to manhandle public relations issues.

The Promising Progression of Children's Television

Erin Nugent | November 6, 2015 | Entertainment
I find myself looking forward to children's television shows more than adult television shows, especially cartoons. I acknowledge that I can have the attention span of a squirrel, but there is something more to children's television shows than sunshine and rainbows lately -- there is humanity.

Luxury Travel of Fidel Castro's Son Called Out By Cuban Communist Party

Yoani Sanchez | November 5, 2015 | World
Calling for austerity while living in opulence has been common practice for Cuban leaders for more than half a century. This contradiction undoubtedly annoys those who have to divide rationed bread with family, or cleverly cut up a bar of soap so it will last for several weeks.
