For me, I have loved working from home. I feel a lot of peace and silence since since I don't have children yet, I am alone during the day. My faithful companion at work is my little dog Bellito every day.
Working from home has saved me almost 2 hours a day commuting. I've had time to cook more and try different cooking recipes. It has also allowed me to clean and organize every space in my house, and to enjoy more of nature in my neighborhood while I run or ride my bike.

one year after his departure
Paying tribute to one year since his physical departure, family and friends attended a Mass offered on April 23 at St. Vincent Catholic Church in the city of Margate.
It should be remembered that Bernadette was President of the Church's Legion of Mary and was active in her community by organizing the popular Three Kings Festival for the resident children of Margate and members of the Parish, as well as in various activities of the Legion in Broward County.
But, on April 25, just days after the Mass in his honor was celebrated, Father Volmar Scaravelli, of Brazilian origin, who had the honor of presiding over it, died of a heart attack. Father Scaravelli had also given the blessing to the legionnaire in her Hospice bed, Glorita, and who is still clinging to life.
Peace to the Remains of Bernadette and Father Scaravelli!

in the paint
We have always seen in painters their creativity focused on mountain landscapes, seas, rivers, structures, figures, abstract images, sunsets, and sunrises, among other inspirational themes, and they have managed to establish themselves in their genre.
But there is an artist who has dedicated herself to painting the homeless of Miami, all those rejected people with whom no one talks or shares. It seems strange and out of the ordinary but it is so. It's about Vered Pasternak.
“I feel like the homeless are invisible in our society and I want to give them a voice, and be visible,” says Vered. “I make friends with them, they are people from my neighborhood. When they see my painting they ask me who are the homeless people I paint and I really make friends with them to get to know them better. With this I do not intend to remove them from their world, but rather to talk with them and listen to them, ”the painter tells us.
We met Vered during an exhibition at the Coral Springs Museum of the Arts and with whom we had the opportunity to chat.

Educational establishments are buildings built to house the bread of teaching and offer it left and right among the students. There is nothing comparable to the spectacle of seeing hundreds of children and/or adolescents, chatting animatedly in the spaces designated for recreation during breaks between classes; the germ of innocence in all its splendor.
If there is something true in this life, it is that nobody is perfect. It is impossible for the perfection of the human being to approach or exceed the perfection of God. We already know that each person, at the time of birth, was assigned gifts, talents, aptitudes and thoughts that go back to perfection or resemble the exquisiteness of God in certain areas of their existence. It is enough that they highlight those graces, so that they are capable of being different, but not perfect; The favors or gifts given by God must be known to value them so that their inestimable benefit is pleasing to God.

The benefits of sunbathing for the heart, mood and immune system
(and for how long it is recommended to do it)
Basically, without direct sunlight, our bodies cannot produce vitamin D, a substance that performs a number of important functions in our bodies.
Everyone knows the importance of sunscreen. But the truth is that our bodies need sun.
Sunlight can improve our mood, lower blood pressure, strengthen our bones, muscles, and even our immune system. And a brief exposure is enough to reap all these benefits.
the power of the sun
"When the sun shines on the skin, the radiation hits a molecule of 7-dehydrocholesterol. It converts the 7-dehydrocholesterol into previtamin D. It then takes several minutes for previtamin D to convert to vitamin D. It's your body temperature that does this second transformation," explains Ann Webb, professor of atmospheric radiation at the University of Manchester, UK.
We need vitamin D, for example, for our bodies to absorb calcium and phosphate from food; both minerals are vital for healthy bones, teeth, and muscles. And it doesn't matter your age. A recent study even showed that taking vitamin D improved muscle strength in athletes, possibly by stimulating muscle cell growth.
But the benefits of vitamin D go beyond strengthening our bones and muscles.
"There appears to be some evidence that it contributes to the immune system, as well as helping to protect against some forms of cancer and autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis," adds Webb.
Research also shows that people with very low levels of vitamin D have a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and dementia. Vitamin D is so essential to our survival that it may help explain the appearance of fair skin.
When our ancestors left Africa, they had dark skin to protect themselves from the high incidence of sunlight in the region. But as they expanded into the cooler, darker Northern Hemisphere, their skin became lighter through evolution, probably because they had adapted to needing less sunlight to make vitamin D. The further north you go, the lighter it tends to be. to be skin tone, with the exception of the Inuit of the far north, who traditionally get their vitamin D by eating seal meat and fatty fish.
Broward County's official vote count for the August 23 election showed voters preferring to use Vote-By-Mail (VBM) ballots, with 136,413 VBM ballots cast out of 260,678 (over 50%). However, more VBM ballots would have been counted if voters had followed the instructions.
Poll workers closely monitor voting during the early voting period or on Election Day. Each step is explained and monitored. Unless the voter has to cast a provisional ballot, the voter knows before leaving the site that their vote has been counted. In exchange for convenience, when a voter uses a VBM ballot, they assume the responsibilities of the poll worker and must follow the voting instructions exactly. It's not hard. The voter just has to plan ahead!
To mark the VBM ballot, use a black ink pen (not a permanent marker) and fill in only one circle per race. Place the completed ballot in the privacy sleeve. Then place the privacy sleeve with the ballot inside the return shipping envelope. Be sure to sign the outside of the envelope where indicated. Without this signature, the ballot will not be counted. At least 113 VBM ballots in the August 23 election were not counted because the return envelope had not been signed.
There are two ways to return a completed VBM ballot. You can mail it. The return shipping envelope is pre-addressed and postage-paid. Mail it no later than Saturday, October 29. The ballot must arrive at the Supervisor of Elections office by 7 pm on Election Day, November 8. An Election Day postmark is not enough. VBM ballots received after 7 pm on Election Day are not opened and therefore not counted.
If you don't want to mail the ballot or it's too late to do so, you can drop off your completed VBM ballot at any of the 24 early voting locations from October 24 to November 6 between 7 am and 7 pm. Visit www.browardvotes.gov for locations. Each location has a special VBM ballot box that is monitored at all times by two Supervisor of Elections employees. At the end of each early voting day, the ballot box is emptied and the VBM ballots are taken to the Supervisor of Elections (SOE) office in Lauderhill, where they will be counted.
You cannot drop off your VBM ballot or those of your family members at a precinct on Election Day, November 8! There are only two locations where VBM ballots can be dropped off on Election Day: the SOE office in Lauderhill or the one in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Many people don't want to put in the effort or don't have the time to drive to these locations, which means these ballots won't be counted.
However, if you are the voter who drops off your VBM ballot at your precinct on Election Day, you will be allowed to vote in person. Simply exchange your VBM ballot for a new ballot and vote.
Voting by mail is convenient, but you need to plan ahead to make sure your ballot is counted!

Using Vote By Mail (VBM) ballots to defray your right in elections has become the favorite way to vote in our elections. BUT, if you wish to continue voting using ballots by mail, you MUST file a NEW application with the Broward County Supervisor of Elections. This applies to ALL registered voters.
We have always had to make new applications for vote-by-mail ballots, but previously, one application was good through two general elections. With the new election laws, an application is only valid through a general election, which just completed in November 2022.
Visit www.browardvotes.gov and click on the large banner on the home page. Or you can call 954-357-7055. Either online or over the phone, you will need to provide the last 4 digits of your social security number or your Florida driver's license/ID number.
For those of you who live in Coconut Creek, Deerfield Beach, Hillsboro Beach, Miramar, North Lauderdale, or Pembroke Park, the urgency to request a VBM ballot is even greater. Municipal elections are scheduled for these cities on Tuesday, March 14. Also, there is NO early voting period. You must vote a VBM ballot or on Election Day at your precinct location.
The deadline to request a VBM ballot be mailed to you is 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 4. The list of polling places for these cities can be found at https://tinyurl.com/2y25ypvy, but remember that you CANNOT drop off a completed VBM ballot at a precinct on Election Day. However, you can exchange it for a new ballot and vote in person.
As with any election, make a plan! Municipal elections are just as important, perhaps more than county, state or national elections.
