cq5dam.web_.1280.1280-960x480.jpeg

The holiday season is fast approaching, and you may or may not have had started listing down the people you want to buy gifts for. But you might be forgetting someone very important — you! Don’t forget to treat yourself to something awesome this year. And to help you get started, here’s 5 cool gadgets to gift yourself this Christmas.

Portable Speaker

A good wireless speaker is always worth spending money on, especially if you like spending your time outdoors with friends and family. If you love listening to your tunes on the go, Forbes endorses the JBL Flip, as it is a high-quality, affordable Bluetooth speaker. You can take the Flip 4 pretty much anywhere because of its durable and waterproof shell. Plus, you can connect two smartphones or tablets to it. But if you’re looking for something smaller, you can check out the Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth Speaker. It’s small enough to fit into a purse or pocket, but will still produce clear and loud sound — perfect for a trip outdoors.

Drone

Have you ever looked up and noticed a drone buzzing up in the sky? Drones are a great way to see the world through a different lens, and see the gorgeous city and beaches that Miami has to offer. HP’s resident techie Zach Cabading recommends the Parrot Bebop, which is a trusty introductory drone that can reach high altitudes and boasts 25 minutes of flight time — long enough for you to practice landings and take-offs until your heart’s content. If you’re more experienced, check out the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, which is perfect for both advanced recreational fliers and professional aerial photographers. This way, you can capture special moments in a new and unique way this coming holiday.

Wireless Charger

Ditch the hassle of using cables this holiday by getting yourself an awesome wireless charger. In our previous holiday gift guide, we listed the Apexan Wireless Charger as one of the hottest gifts on the market. It’s a simple, convenient, and durable device that can charge 1.5 times faster than normal wireless charging. It also boasts a broad compatibility, as it can be used for different types of phones. If you prefer to charge your devices while they’re standing up, you might fancy the Seneo Wasteland Qi Wireless Charger Stand. It doesn’t just charge your phone wirelessly, it also serves as a stand, making hands-free phone calls and live chatting a breeze.

Robot Vacuum

If you’re someone who usually hates cleaning things, a good robot vacuum may be just the gift for you this Christmas. Writer Branu Ibrahim shares that the iRobot Roomba 690 is a very practical purchase, because it’s an affordable smart robot vacuum that easily cleans up hair, fur, and crumbs lying around your house. In addition, it can also be controlled with your voice or through its companion app. For people with bigger living spaces, the midrange robot vacuum Neato Botvac D7 Connected is a great alternative. It has laser technology for precise navigation, which allows it to clean your entire place quickly and efficiently. It’s also compatible with Alexa and Google Home. While robot vacuums are not a replacement for upright vacuums, they are a great addition to your arsenal and will help you clean less often.

Fitness Tracker

From beach runs and biking to various water-sports, there are plenty of healthy activities to do in Miami — and fitness trackers are a great way to stick to your fitness goals. Men’s Health describes the Fitbit Charge 3 as a great cross between an activity tracker and a smartwatch, with its stylish and refined look, large touchscreen display, and outstanding battery life. The Fitbit Charger 3 is also waterproof, which makes it a great fitness tracker for people who usually go swimming at the beach or the pool. A good alternative, if you don’t need a GPS tracker, is the Garmin Vivosmart 4. It’s a slim and smart activity tracker that will probably suit most people for everyday wear. It also does a great job in telling you the best workout time depending on your body’s energy levels.

A “teachable moment” book for those curious about both Miami and South Africa

November 17, 2019

Deadly-Game-Front-Cover-960x1485.png
As fewer Americans travel to South Africa because of level two travel advisories, and we become less familiar with the culture, a new fictional book by a chief scientist explores South Africa’s challenges with poaching and illustrates how meaningful the country is today along the path to safety for its wildlife.

“Deadly Game: The Horns of the Rhino,” takes us around the globe to show us how poaching affects all who are involved, in the US, China, and South Africa, but from a unique perspective. It is written by one of the chiefs of surgery at the University of Miami, Dr. Robert Marx, and will be available on November 21. He chronicles, through fiction, his experience with African wildlife and has developed complex, relevant characters who join the illegal game of poaching, as well as the heroes who seek to put a stop to the deadly practice.  The experiences of a couple challenged by the dangers of South Africa, the racism, and the stories of the poachers, who often see no way out of these crimes, are explored.  The book tells the story through the eyes of a surgeon deeply touched by his experiences in South Africa.

“Many people understand the effort to stop rhino and elephant poaching, but I don’t think we understand completely how poachers come to the practice or what we need to do to stop it,” says author Dr. Robert Marx.  “I wrote Deadly Game for all of us, to celebrate the heroes who prevent the very violence we see in poaching and other violent crime in general.

Surgeons and physicians often see societal woes from a unique perspective, and this is exemplified in Deadly Game’s story.  How the problem is broken down, culture to culture is addressed in the book, from the demand for rhino horn as an aphrodisiac in Asia to the desperate populations of South Africa who are drawn to poaching, to the lack of awareness of the culture of poaching around the globe. The book also highlights beautiful areas and amenities in South Africa and how they fit into the culture.  Americans, from Miami, are featured as visitors, as lovers, and as researchers, including a chief surgeon, who finds himself entangled in a web of deceit by pharmaceutical executives.

“We should all know South Africa,” says Bill Youmans, former professional baseball catcher.  The country provides so much beauty, so much adventure and cultural lessons for all of us, as taught by Dr. Marx’s new book.

The publisher offers Deadly Game:  The Horns of the Rhino as the newest book in a trilogy that portrays the life of a chief surgeon and his co-workers and family, claiming that it continuously touches on  “teachable moments” between our two cultures. Marx means to show us that only close guidance and the attention of those who have been left out will heal the problem.

“If you want to hear a deep, genuine story, read Dr. Marx, says Dr. David Frost, past president, The American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.  “This is his best novel yet, because it defines a land he loves.”

This October marks one year since the U.S. Department of State has issued a Level 2 travel advisory for South Africa, which recommends that visitors exercise increased caution. Specifically, the advisory warns about the prevalence of violent crime, especially in major cities after dark. Travel advice from the British government has also issued similar warnings.

South Africa is often portrayed by international media as a dangerous place to visit, with a high rate of violent crime, but thousands of visitors travel to South Africa every year without incident, describing the most beautiful scenery on Earth, with abounding oceans, clean beaches, rugged mountains, and game-filled reserves.

The New York Times and other publications have reported that researchers in South Africa are turning to genetic fingerprinting and sophisticated sensors to track down poachers for prosecution.

The book, now available to the public through Amazon and independent bookstores is available nationwide.

Endeavor Miami Celebrates its Annual Gala

October 27, 2019

Endeavor Miami honored Cesar Conde, chairman of NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises with the “Endeavor Miami Impact Award,” as well as the founders of two Endeavor Miami companies: EcoSystems and Nearpod, with “Endeavor Entrepreneur of the Year” awards, during its Annual Gala. The organization celebrated its sixth year in Miami hosting a special night at the Faena Forum for Endeavor Miami Board members and entrepreneurs, mentors and high-impact business leaders from the entrepreneurial ecosystem in South Florida.

Cesar Conde was recognized for his extraordinary professional trajectory that exemplifies high-impact leadership. He spearheaded Telemundo’s current rating dominance in the Hispanic media landscape by engaging and empowering audiences with relevant content. As one of the initial proponents of bringing Endeavor’s first U.S. affiliate to Miami, Cesar’s impact can be attributed to his growth mindset. In his thank-you speech, Cesar emphasized the importance of corporations such as NBCUniversal fostering an entrepreneurial spirit and promoting ecosystem growth.

Belief in the power of entrepreneurship and enterprising leadership united all the gala goers. “Entrepreneurship is the driving force of economic development in our community. It takes leaders in the public and private sectors, universities and other municipal networks to come together with entrepreneurs to transform societies. Endeavor is the great connector between all of these individuals,” said Claudia Durán, Endeavor Miami’s managing director.

This year, Endeavor Miami wanted to honor those Endeavor entrepreneurs who have had the biggest economic impact in South Florida. After only one year of becoming Endeavor Miami entrepreneurs, and doing an outstanding job scaling their companies, Emiliano Abramzon and Felipe Sommer from Nearpod, as well as brothers Richard and Lawrence Lamondin from EcoSystems, each received an “Entrepreneur of the Year” award. These founders have distinguished themselves for their rapid revenue growth over the past year as well as for the number of jobs created over the same period.

These Miami-based companies have quickly and successfully scaled their businesses across the United States. EcoSystems has become a nationwide leader in water and energy conservation, saving over two billion gallons of freshwater by focusing on eco-friendly bathroom upgrades. Nearpod has reached almost 70% of school districts across the country through their ed-tech platform that allows teachers to create, download and teach interactive lesson plans while engaging students in real-time across all devices in a classroom.

“We are extremely proud to see how these companies in our portfolio, that we have seen scale over the past few years, are fueling the engine of South Florida’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and the local economy. Endeavor Miami will keep working to support all of our entrepreneurs in their efforts to generate impact,” said Ernest Bachrach, Endeavor Miami co-chair.

As Miami Mayor Francis Suarez reminded attendees, Miami was recently named the No. 1 spot for starting a small business in the U.S., but organizations like Endeavor Miami are crucial to ensure that those businesses continue to grow and achieve scale. All the proceeds from the event are directed to supporting Endeavor Miami’s mission of selecting and servicing high-impact entrepreneurs.

Carnival Panorama Debuts Two New Playlist Productions Onboard

September 24, 2019

049A4650-1170x780-960x640.jpg

Inspired by talented directors and choreographers from Los Angeles, Broadway, and The West End, two new Playlist Productions shows will debut on Carnival Panorama on December 11, 2019, the line’s first new ship on the West Coast in 20 years.

For the first time, Carnival will employ “dancing drones” that interact with the shows’ music and 12 talented performers to create entertaining high-flying moments that add an exciting, never-before-seen visual element to the ship’s overall show experience.

Combining this new technology with special effects and iconic songs from the Woodstock era and musical theater, respectively, the new high-energy shows – Rock Revolution and Broadway Beats™ – complement other audience favorites for an array of entertainment options. Rock Revolution was previewed at Carnival Studios earlier this week.

“When planning Carnival Panorama’s Playlist Productions shows, we challenged ourselves to think more creatively than ever before to find ways to ‘wow’ both our longtime guests and those sailing with us for the first time,” said Kerry Stables, creative director of Carnival Productions who leads an in-house team of accomplished entertainment professionals both onboard and ashore. “From performing drones to new music genres and keen attention to costuming, décor and theme details, these shows prove how innovative our productions have become and raise the bar on our offerings in a fun, creative and unique way.”

The two new only-on-Carnival Panorama shows are:

  • Rock Revolution, a modernized concert-style show inspired by the legendary Woodstock music festival that pays tribute to the music from the ‘Summer of ‘69’’ and fashion styles reminiscent of icons like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. Brought to life by top Los Angeles production talent, including acclaimed artistic director Jonathan Tessero, and accomplished choreographer Rudy Abreu whose credits include So You Think You Can Dance and World of Dance, the show features a horn trio and a three-person rock band playing illuminated LED-interactive drum sets while “dancing drones” fly throughout the theater to deliver a unique multi-sensory experience. Creative costume designs, classic rock songs, contemporary choreography, and high octane vocals transform the stage into a reimagined tribute concert with a modern twist.
  • Broadway Beats, which follows a band of entertainers as they immerse themselves in the city’s most dynamic neighborhoods that come to life with hyper-realistic LED screens of signature NYC elements – the towering skyline, subway cars, bold street art and more. Directed by award-winning Broadway Director Peter Flynn and choreographed by Broadway veteran Marcos Santana, who together have staged some of the most successful musicals around the country, the show playfully mixes city rhythms and electronic dance music and takes an imaginative, exhilarating trip through the city with brand new interpretations of some of Broadway’s greatest hits.

Additional Onboard Entertainment Options

The two new shows will join other guest favorites including Soulbound, a gothic-inspired show with dazzling special effects and R&B classics, and Celestial Strings, a journey that transitions through the seasons with imagery set to a rock and pop soundtrack merged with classical musicians playing live electric strings.

In addition to the four shows, Carnival Panorama will host a number of entertaining activities day and night including the South Beach-inspired Serenity Nights party at the ship’s outdoor adults-only retreat, and a shipboard production of the hit Paramount TV series ‘Lip Sync Battle.’

Carnival Panorama Itineraries and Additional Information

Following its inaugural three-day voyage departing Dec. 11, 2019, Carnival Panorama will launch year-round seven-day cruises Dec. 14, 2019 departing every Saturday to stunning seaside destinations along the Mexican Riviera, including Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta. To learn more about Carnival Cruise Line, visit Carnival.com. For reservations, contact any travel agent or call 1-800-CARNIVAL. Carnival can also be found on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
