Miami, Florida has a brand new band hitting the Latin American music scene! The Cuban American Dance music group SVB is already making headlines with their cutting-edge tunes! Their name stems from the initials of the three member’s stage names: Seven (Michael Da La Nuez), Vitto (Cesar Cordero), and Bartet (Juan Bartet). They feature Cubano flavored rap which Seven performs with Vitto as DJ and back up vox. Bartet handles the songwriting. The most unbelievable thing about this band is that they have only been together since June of this year and already have tracks trending. Being Miami boys, the band brings a very distinct Cuban influence to their contagious dance sounds with years of experience under their belts.
Seven is an avid poet and loves literature, which has in turn fused the language barrier between Spanish and English with a sense of joining together quality cross language lyrics, creating more fans with varied musical tastes. Vitto’s profound ability to DJ has helped them monumentally gain a foothold in what it takes to survive in a rough dance music territory “In Miami”. And with his golden voice, Vitto adds a dimension that blends perfectly with Seven’s raps. To check them out, head over to their page on Facebook or their website at SVBMusic.com.
Pitbull, born Armando Christian Perez, has been a hit since his debut in 2002 when he did an album with Lil’ Wayne. Lil’ Wayne who frequents Miami, Pitbull’s hometown, recognized Pitbull Rapper had the skillz. Pitbull’s music and hot music videos are popular in the US and Latin American countries. He’s been building momentum in the Latin rap community for a decade now. Perez is of Cuban decent and was born in Miami. While he is Cuban, he is a white Cuban, most likely of Castillian Spanish descent and has blue eyes, so early on, this was an issue for him getting cred in the Cubano community of Latino meztizas and criollas. His proving grounds were the streets of Miami, he began dealing drugs.
When he was sixteen his mother kicked him out of the house, because Pitbull was dealing and this was starting to threaten her safety. Yet that didn’t stop him from graduating from Miami Coral Park High School and starting his rapping career. When he was trying to start his music career, he got blown off a lot by record industry peeps who didn’t see the explosive market appeal of Latin rap. He gave an insider an explanation as to why he chose the stage name “Pitbull” by stating, “They bite to lock. And they’re outlawed in Dade County. They’re basically everything that I am. It’s been a constant fight.” His music has been in many films such as: 2 Fast 2 Furious, Easy A, Dance Flick, Step Up 2: The Streets etc. Check out his Youtube video “Suavamente” which has over 46 million views.

Blackberry, AT&T and Paulina Rubio used the offices of The Design Factory because of their impressive design, instead of using a set to shoot this tv commercial. While Paulina Rubio appeared briefly in the commercial production as “the new boss”, The Design Factory spared no expense in providing a huge dressing room with all luxuries available regardless for this world renowned celebrity, which also showcased the level of service they provide all their clientele.

La Dieta Alcalina es una dieta que intenta corregir errores del pasado.
Todos tenemos un sistema de equilibrio interno llamado “Equilibrio del pH”. El pH sanguíneo debe permanecer muy cercano a 7,35 de lo contrario moriríamos.
Las costumbres dietéticas equivocadas, el estrés, las emociones negativas, tóxicos ambientales, trabajo físico intenso, ingesta de medicinas convencionales y muchos otros factores crean residuos ácidos en nuestro sistema. Si el cuerpo no ha sido capaz de eliminarlos con rapidez y volver al equilibrio, comienza a extremar recursos para contrarrestar los ácidos.
Por ejemplo, toma minerales de los huesos como el calcio (alcalinos) para poder volver al equilibrio. Si ésto pasa día tras día por mucho tiempo llega un momento que los huesos se debilitará y provocará Osteoporosis.
Cuando hay acidosis en nuestro terreno interior todos los órganos y funciones pierden eficacia y a largo plazo aparecerán las enfermedades.
El paso más sencillo para revertir esta situación es seguir una Dieta Alcalina. Los alimentos alcalinos son el camino corto a la recuperación de muchas de las enfermedades que padecemos.
En mi caso, gracias a ésta dieta me he recuperado de Fibromialgia. La he padecido varios años hasta que cambié mis hábitos dietéticos.

There’s a new U.S. Hispanic community online called estamos UNIDOS that is attracting Hispanics to explore what it means to be Hispanic in the Estados Unidos today. After a quick online sign-up (you can also sign up through Facebook, Google, Twitter and Yahoo) you can join the community and start a discussion or share an opinion. You can participate en Ingles o en Espanol. When you join estamos UNIDOS, you can also read discussions and “Like” posts even if you don’t want to express yourself. This new Hispanic community online can especially help Latinos address serious issues and promote dialogue and discussion between Latinos on important topics that impact the largest minority in America, the Hispanic community.
One of the biggest issues facing the Hispanic community is the lack of funding for art and music education programs in public schools across the country, especially in school systems in inner cities and in states like California, New Mexico and New York where school budgets are being cut and art and music programs are especially hit hard by budget number crunching. Of course, these states have a high population of Hispanics and a high percentage of Hispanic children attending these schools. Without formal education in art and music, this impacts the next generation of musicians and artists and especially Latino musicians and artists. While there are some private foundations that foster art and music programs in the Hispanic community, schools should be more resourceful about finding avenues to keep art and music programs alive. So, join today and be a part of estamos UNIDOS and also check out the estamos UNIDOS Facebook page.Read More
If you love Electronic Dance Music (EDM) and you aren’t familiar with Moombahton, you should check it out. What is Moombahton? It is a genre within EDM similar to reggaeton which most EDM club aficionados are familiar with, especially its style and drum beats. For a Wiki that details the origin of Moombahton, visit ElectronicDanceMusic.com, a comprehensive source on all genres of Electronic Dance Music.
Moombahton is one of the newest styles of Electronic Dance Music, having been born on the turntables just a little over two years ago when DJ and Producer Dave Nada slowed down an Electro House track at a basement dance party from approximately 128 bpm to 108 bpm. That track just happened to be titled “Moombah” and thereafter, that particular genre of Electronic Dance Music became known as Moombahton. Dava Nada also produced the first Moombahton tracks, which featured his signature style along with Latin vocals. These seminal tracks set the pattern for the Moombahton drumbeats integrating bass drum beats with other drum beat types such as snare drum or bongos. This drumbeat pattern also prevails in Reggaeton and Soca (Afro dance rhythm from Trinidad / Tobago). Even though Dave Nada literally invented Moombahton, the DJ hasn’t laid down tight rules over other Moombahton artists…other than to state that to be considered Moombahton, a track has has to stay at 108bpm.
Some of the hottest Moombahton artists besides its originator Dave Nada are: Munchi, DJ Sabo who mixes in Latin flavor into his tracks, Heartbreak and DJ Melo.

Two of the most influential Tejano (Mexican-Texan or Tex-Mex) music artists are Emilio Navaira and the late, great Selena. Emilio was born in San Antonio, Texas and began singing and playing guitar on a cheap guitarro purchased at a pawn shop when he was a boy. By the time he reached the end of high school, he was gifted enough to receive a scholarship to attend a Texas university where he majored in music and after graduation, planned to become a music teacher. His intent was to pass on the love of music to youth. Emilio’s songs began charting in the 90′s, many years after he had been grinding it out on the road in Texas and northern Mexico to build the loyal Tejano fan base for his heartfelt songs. Emilio Navaira also found a way to give back to youth by forming his own charitable foundation “Tejanos for Children” and donating to other children’s charities including a children’s hospital and The Miracle Network.
Almost everyone knows the sad story of Selena’s life and her tragic death. Jennifer Lopez played Selena in Selena’s bio-pic in 1997. Selena Quintanilla was born in Lake Jackson, Texas to a family who suffered an unfortunate financial loss then became homeless, living out of a bus, and surviving on money Selena earned singing on the road in Texas. Selena’s beauty, voice and evocative songs earned her the title of “Queen of Tejano”. She was just on the verge of crossover success and was going to be releasing her first English language album when she was fatally shot by the head of her fan club. We have the music of Selena as solace, her music will live on forever.Read More

Newspapers are becoming more and more outdated every day. Not only do they consume a tremendous amount of resources for distribution and are essentially not eco-friendly either, but also, people are just not using newspapers culturally as much as they are reading news on the internet on their computers or mobile devices. Newspapers are static printed sheets with no ability to search for specific stories at your fingertips. And also, newspapers cost money, not much, but if you want to read news every day, newspapers can be an expensive way to source your news. In addition, most newspapers are printed in either English or Spanish. Only the internet gives you the power to immediately translate news stories into another language, either your native language or a language you may be studying. In addition, since newspapers are only printed once a day, they can’t be updated with a crucial breaking news story, or have the fluidity to display different media, such as videos, photo slide shows, or display photos in high resolution.
Reality is that newspapers are no longer the go-to source for the noticias or deportes or historias. News online with social media integration is the way of the future and the future is here now for Latinos with LatinoTimes.com. You don’t have to write the stories, but when you find a story of interest to Latinos, if you are a registered news spotter, you can submit the story to LatinoTimes.com. This is a proactive way to participate in news gathering. Or if your sole preference is to read the news, then all the news gathering has been done for you without the bias of newspaper editors. LatinoTimes.com is truly for Latinos, by Latinos.Read More
