Mejor Ciudad y Mejor Vida en Miami Florida
Recibí la inspiración para escribir acerca del medio ambiente [aunque no soy experto] después de visitar la página cibernética de Radio Internacional de China con el tema de la Exposición Universal 2010 que será celebrada en bella ciudad de Shanghái.
La ciudad de Miami Florida con su apodo la tierra del Sol es una de las ciudades estadounidenses con mayor crecimiento. Un ejemplo ha sido en el tráfico con la presencia de más autos en las calles y autopistas.
Como cualquier ciudad en EEUU, tenemos ruidos con mayor uso de electricidad y energía como la gasolina. La respuesta de las autoridades ha sido la creación de un sistema de transporte público aunque el pueblo en su mayoría prefiere utilizar sus autos.
Para una mejor ciudad y calidad de vida, la cadena de televisión Univisión inicio la campaña “Piensa Verde Actúa Verde” donde los artistas de la cadena invitan al público en crear fuentes de energía.
Un colegio secundario recibió la inspiración y diseñaron un lugar en el colegio donde existe la energía solar. La lógica se debe a la presencia constante del sol. La ciudad de Miami logro escapar la contaminación ambiental existente en otras ciudades estadounidenses debido a sus decisiones sabias.
La ciudad de Miami Florida debe unir sus esfuerzos con las ciudades del mundo para levantar la conciencia para mantener un medio ambiente limpia.
Medicaid Mail Order Set for Final AdoptionTake Action!
20,000 Medicaid Patients Required to be Selected by AHCA
Budget Proviso Language Likely to Affect Community Pharmacy Medicaid Patients
Language was agreed to in the budget proviso that directs the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to issue an invitation to negotiate (ITN) for a pharmacy or pharmacies to provide mail order services to 20,000 chronically ill patients. These patients who are suppose to have the option to participate are required to be selected by AHCA in the budget language. Since this is an agreed to issue in the budget by both the House and Senate chambers only the Governor can stop it from moving forward by issuing a veto.
This ill advised budget proposal seeks to unhook patients with chronic diseases from their current pharmacy providers. This includes those patients with developmental disabilities such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease who may not understand how mail order services may work. This proposal would likely result in patients getting their maintenance drugs from one provider and their acute care medications from another. This is not continuity or coordination of care. You may be filling prescriptions for patients without their complete medication history which could result in very serious AND AVOIDABLE life threatening medication safety challenges. Uncordinated care is contrary to good medication therapy management practices.
The FPA has learned that the Agency for Health Care Administration is neutral on this proposed language.
This issue clearly is the work of a company who is trying to convince your legislators to write policy to transfer your business away from you. This is not how public policy should be written or used. The proposal seeks to move 20,000 patients to mail order. From what we have learned the total target population of Medicaid patients who would likely qualify is less than 35,000. This is over 60% of the entire Medicaid chronically ill patient population moved by policy to one pharmacy provider!
Call Governor Crist and ask that he VETO the proviso language in line 205 sending 20,000 patients with chronic diseases into mail order pharmacy.

Alex Snitker has surprised and shocked the political world in Florida by announcing he is running for the US Senate as a candidate of the Libertarian Party. The announcement comes at a time when Marco Rubio is running as a Republican, K.Meeks is running as a Democrat, and Charlie Crist [the Republican Governor of Florida] is running as an Independent.
He has decided to run as a Libertarian Candidate after the candidates themselves have been attacking each other instead of discussing the burning issues of the day in the Sunshine State. It was not an easy feat since the Libertarian Party has to overcome obstavles of ballot access in a society that has promoted freedom, human rights, and democracy while not practicing it at home.
Alex Snitker was a member of the US Marine Corp from 1993 to 2001 who is currently married to his high school sweetheart Kelly since 2000. They have a son who is currently 21 months of age. He considers his experience with the Marines helpful in being a Senator who is willing to serve his people and provide for a governance that is transparent. The qualities which are needed in the USA of the 21st Century.
He went to work as a salesman for AXSA Document Solutions after his honorable discharge from the military. His experience from his work as a salesman is that hard work pays off in the short and long run.
Alex Snitker is a believer in term limits for Members of Congress, the Senate, and that they should have the same retirement plan as the rest of the citizens of the USA. He is also a beleiver is the Balanced Budget Amendment which would limit the US Federal Government to spending equal or less than what it gains. In other words, he favors an America that would live within its means instead of spending money on wasteful projects.
He is also a believer in using the energy available in the USA without the need to depend on foreign sources. Alex Snitker also believes in the Fair Tax which would replace the current tax system with a federal retail sales tax which would be administered by the tax authorities of the 50 states of the Union. He is also a believer in non interference in the affairs of the world.
Alex Snitker has repeatedly stated that the USA should stop being a police person to the world and promote liberty by showing it in America to the world. He believes that a strong military is needed to defend the USA against internal and external enemies within the borders of the USA. The idea of illegal immigration according to ALex Snitker is to identify each one since no country can survive with open borders.
He is of the belief that illegal immigarnts should either be deported or give them a path to citizenship such as paying taxes, background checks, medical screening, and a course on the rights, responsibilities of being a US Citizen which includes the history of the country. The response of the establishment has been indifferent to censoring the news.
The mainstream media does not allow political announcements by Alex Snitker because they do not want to upset the status quo. Regardless, the people have a right to know about Snitker in order to make a decision in November 2010.
We have only Three Short Days to ACT.
This afternoon, President of the Florida PTA, Karin Brown, had an opportunity to speak with Governor Crist. He advised that he is still considering all sides of SB6. He claims to want to make the best decision for children, teachers and education in the State of Florida. Governor Crist mentioned to Karin Brown that, while he has heard overwhelming outcry from the teachers, he would like to hear more from the parents, students and community partners within our school community.
THE GOVERNOR WILL SIGN, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER, BY FRIDAY.
We will continue to fight. Once again, please contact the Governor of Florida, and ask him to VETO this legislation.

The City of Miami Florida and its surrounding suburbs are known as the Sun and Fun Capital of the world. It is a place where there are many historical monuments and places to shop. The Miami Se aquarium is one of the best aquariums in North America and was home to the Dolphin TV Star called Flipper as well as Hugo The Killer Whale.
The Miami Se aquarium is also the home of many species such as the manatee. The Miami Metro Zoo and Parrot Jungle are also places to visit to see the animals and parrots from different parts of the world in their live habitats. For the people who are here on spring break, they can see the Youth Fair or visit the Annual Calle Ocho Festival that occurs every March
The place called Calle Ocho is actually named SW 8th Street and it is one of the important arteries through Little Havana. The stores and theaters that are abundant makes for a lively place to visit. One of the famous art galleries is the Maxoly Art Gallery famous for its display of Modern Cuban Art and is located next to one of the famous Cuban Restaurants El Pub [formerly known as Badia]. El Pub was one of the first Cuban Restaurants founded in 1959.
The restaurant scene does not limit itself to El Pub since there is El Esquisito, Versailles, and La Casita complete with its live entertainment. In Little Havana, there is another cultural festival every last Friday of the month where local artists display their creations to the visitors.
The City of Miami Beach is famous for South Beach where people go to see and be seen as well as soak up the sun. Miami Beach was famous for being the home of the Jackie Gleason Show during the 1950′s and 1960′s. In honor of Jackie Gleason, the Miami Beach Theater of Performing Arts has been renamed in honor of this great comedian who put Miami Beach on the map.
The City of Key Biscayne has one of the oldest lighthouses in the State of Florida. It is no longer used and I do not think that people can visit it but it is worth taking a visit. The City of Coral Gables is home to one of the famous churches called The Church of The Little Flower. The Church of the Little Flower is the oldest church in the South Florida area.
The Biltmore Hotel is another historic place to visit while in the Miami Area. It is located in Coral Gables, Florida and was established as a hotel in the 1920′s. It became a Veterans Hospital during World War II until 1968 when it was abandoned for two decades. It became a hotel again in 1988 and is currently registered as a National Monument by the US Federal Government.
The people who love sports would love to see the Miami Dolphins, the Miami Heat, and the Florida Marlins at their respective stadiums such as the Pro Player Stadium, and American Airlines Arena. The stores that are worth visiting are Bayside [with its ships taking people on a tour of the bay side], Dadeland, Dolphin Mall, Miami International Mall, and Aventura Mall.
The theaters that are worth visiting are the Avante and Prometeo with their classicsl Spanish fare. It is also the place for aspring artists to prove to the world that they could make it anywhere. The Vizcaya Musuem as well as the Planetarium are also places to visit. Vizacya is a mansion made in the Spanish and Italian Style. The Planetarium is a place where a person can see the planets at night.
Coconut Grove is a part of Miami Florida that deserves to be seen such as the Lady of Charity Chapel [next to Mercy Hospital] as well as the Cocowalk Mall which is an open mall. There are more places to visit in Miami Florida that could be used for a future article.
The celebrities that come from Hollywood have a negative impact on society and are a bad reflection on the society inherent in the United States of America. Regardless, not all of the celebrities have a negative aspect on society. The examples of positive influences of celebrities mostly originate from Florida and Texas.
The State of Florida [where the underwriter lives] is home to Maria Lourdes. Maria Lourdes is a Cuban American Actress, Singer, Model, and member of the Chorus in a program hosted by Don Francisco [Chilean Television Host] and transmitted by Univision. She is also a recording artist in her own right.
The glory that has been bestowed upon Maria Lourdes has been shared by her to all of the people of the world. During her career, she participated in a concert to benefit a little girl called Zunette Rodriguez. Zunette Rodriguez was a girl who was born without oxygen in her brain. The result was the need to undergo costly operations.
The concert for Zunette Rodriguez raised money in order for the family to pay for her treatment. Maria Lourdes has also participated in concerts and contests in which the money went to help orphanages in Honduras. Her recent work of charity was a concert in the Magic City Casino in Miami Florida. The purpose of the concert was to raise money and awareness for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti in the beginning of 2010.
Maria Lourdes is not the only celebrity in Florida that has contributed with her time and effort. Lorena Rojas who is a Mexican Soap Opera Actress is active in the fight against Cancer. Willie Chirino and Lissette who are Cuban Singers have also been involved in helping refugees from Cuba settle into a new life in Florida.
The State of Texas is also the home to celebrities who have left a positive impact in the lives of people. Jessica Shepherd is a Texas Country and Rock Artist who is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year 2010 for the Texas Music Awards. She also developed a Music Therapy program for Senior Citizens.
The purpose of her program is applying a mixture of rock, country, gospel, as well as country western from the 1920′s to the 1950′s for residents of Assisted Living Facilitites. The music would help rekindle memories, enhance interaction between family as well as friends, and reduce tension.
The Jessica Shepherd Music Therapy program has also enhanced positive self esteem in the residents of Assisted Living Facilities and their families. She has also recorded songs that praise God including some that are in the Rockin Gospel Project at Maria’s Taco Xpress at Austin Texas.
Brenda Kay who is also known as the Queen of Texas and Americana Music has participated in helping her fellow citizen in Abilene, Texas. She participated in the clean up of the streets of Abilene from litter and clutter in the year 2009. She has also done this on a yearly basis. The program is called the Abilene Trash Off.
The State of New Mexico is home to the famous Mexican American celebrities called Sparx and Lorenzo Antonio. They established a scholarship with the intention of helping bright high school students who cannot afford higher education in their state. The purpose of the scholarship is based on the need of a good education in order to have advantages in life.
While there may be more celebrities who have a positive aspect on society. The artists who were mentioned deserve special praise for their effort to make the world a better place.
I would like to congratulate Radio Prague for its excellent programmes dedicated to the Christmas Season. At a time when people think of material goods for Christmas, Radio Prague with its special programmes dedicated to the season exposes the true meaning of the season such as the birth of Jesus Christ as well as the reunion with family and friends. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to Radio Prague from Miami Florida.
