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.

Conversation is an art that has defined rules, mastering its essence can mean a lot between what is correct and what is dull. In addition, there are people who lack basic academic education and are unaware of its guidelines, therefore, I risk commenting that it is most likely that they are poorly educated or are simply involuntary ignoramuses who neglect their tone of voice, constantly interrupting what they are doing. their interlocutor is arguing, and they resort to gestures and words outside the context in question -some of them considered in certain circles as "bad words"-, only with the intention of being recognized against what is being argued at the moment , no matter who it is or what is being discussed.
At the end of the old year, I have had the impression that life is shortened, that it has come and gone like the waves of the sea that leave their traces on the shore. I do not know for sure how the three hundred and sixty-five days passed, however, I feel that I have been born again because each day is a new beginning that is expected with hope. It is a time of wealth, of projects, of new intentions and aspirations, of plans to carry out, always with the virtue of making a difference in our lives and that of others.
This end of the year, we Argentines had a reason to celebrate that, in an almost magical way, unites us. In a country divided by a political and already cultural rift, the soccer world cup, led by twenty-six players who today are extolled as heroes of the homeland, has achieved what seemed impossible: unite everyone in the same cry of euphoria. : Argentina champion!
The year 2022 was a very complicated one in the political field of the United States. It began with the parties in the middle of the electoral campaign for the congress in the so-called mid-term elections that had been characterized in the past by giving victory to the party that is in opposition. According to the pro-Republican media outlets like FOX, the South Florida media outlets, and the party's own spokespersons, assured that they were going to sweep and win broadly in what they called "the red wave."
The streets explode, people abandon their cars and leave them parked anywhere, as if they were escaping the fire at the end of the world. Horns sound, firecrackers and papers fly into the air; Feelings, contained emotions, fights over the injustices to which those of us who live in this land that have very few reasons to be happy and celebrate are permanently subjected, explode.

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!

El hecho de que las elecciones de 2022 hayan terminado no significa que el trabajo de la Liga se detenga. Continuamos educando a los votantes y defendiendo los temas que hemos acordado que son importantes a nivel local, estatal y nacional.
En relación con la educación de los votantes, una ley aprobada por la legislatura de Florida de 2022 (SB 524) requiere que cada votante registrado que quiera enviar su voto por correo en las próximas elecciones generales debe hacer una NUEVA solicitud. Esto se puede hacer visitando el sitio web del Supervisor de Elecciones del Condado de Broward (SOE) ( www.browardvotes.gov ) o llamando al 954-357-7055. Recuerde que las boletas de voto por correo no se pueden reenviar, así que asegúrese de actualizar su dirección y otra información pertinente con la SOE.
Con respecto a la defensa, la Liga de Mujeres Votantes de Florida ha decidido cuatro prioridades legislativas para la próxima sesión legislativa de Florida, que comienza el 7 de marzo. Esas prioridades son los derechos de voto y la reforma electoral, la salud reproductiva y la justicia, la educación y los recursos naturales. Si bien nuestros intereses se extienden más allá de estos cuatro temas, estos son los que seguiremos más de cerca.
A nivel local, continuamos siguiendo al Grupo de Trabajo de Gestión de Residuos Sólidos, que está compuesto por representantes de la ciudad y el condado, mientras continúan decidiendo una solución a largo plazo para gestionar la basura que producimos los ciudadanos. Si bien esto puede no parecer un tema crítico, el vertedero se está acercando a su capacidad, estamos reciclando a una de las tasas más bajas de la historia y otros condados no quieren nuestra basura. ¿Qué hacemos con nuestra basura en el futuro? Este es un servicio gubernamental fundamental, ¡tan importante como el agua y el alcantarillado!
