THE PUERTO RICAN EXPERIENCE

The Indian, Spanish and African races came together on the island of Puerto Rico, contributing their blood and traditions to the formation of the Puerto Rican culture.

The original inhabitants of Puerto Rico at the time of the Spanish conquest were the Taíno and Carib Indian-tribes.

We are young and old, we are women and men, we are professionals and blue collar workers, we are farmers and doctors, we are architects and farmers, we are actors and painters.

We are a bit of everything!!

Plight of Orangutans

~TOO POLITICAL?~

In spite of the political and daily problems the United Kingdom seems to be going through, it looks their concept of political advertisement goes along the correct path.

Can the US learn a lesson here?

I’m afraid not!

This ad violate laws against political advertising.

U.K. Ad Highlighting Plight of Orangutans Is Deemed Too ‘Political’ to Air
The animated commercial for the food retailer Iceland, featuring a baby orangutan, noted that the palm oil industry contributed to the destruction of rain forests and habitats.

“There’s a Rang-tan in my bedroom, and I don’t know what to do,” the British actress Emma Thompson says, lending her voice to a young girl in an animated advertisement for Iceland, a food retailer in Britain.

It turns out the “Rang-tan” is a baby orangutan that has lost its mother and the rain forest it once called home, and that it no longer has a place to live.

The story line might seem harmless enough, but the commercial wasn’t cleared this week to air on British TV because it was deemed to violate laws against political advertising.

The decision ignited a firestorm on social media in Britain and led to a wildly popular petition demanding that it be overturned. And to many in the United States, where more than $3 billion was spent on political advertising for the recent midterm elections, the reaction was total bafflement.

Really, many wondered, can political advertising be banned?

~THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW~

Michelle Obama is touring the country to promote her new book “Becoming“.

She visited Ellen DeGeneres on her show. 

We, the audience, had the pleasure of Michelle’s company for the full hour. She regaled us with stories, information, humor and her presence. She was a breath of fresh air.

In return, Ellen had a surprise for Michelle. 

You can watch it below.

It’s invaluable for me.

Michelle Obama and Ellen Degeneres head to Costco for a Becoming book signing

On November 15, Thursday’s episode of The Ellen Show, the Former First Lady made an impromptu trip to Costco where her new book Becoming just happens to be on sale.

Not one to shy away from attention, DeGeneres was quick to announce Obama’s presence in the store, whipping out a megaphone and yelling,

“We have Michelle Obama! Michelle Obama! She’ll be signing books!” …

as screaming shoppers flocked to meet them.

Despite DeGeneres’ attempts to embarrass Obama, she made up for it by ending with the crowd chanting “We miss the Obamas.” Don’t we all?

Michelle Obama is on a book tour for her new memoir, “Becoming,” so Ellen thought the best place to set up an impromptu book signing was one of America’s favorite wholesale stores, Costco.

Watch as they sign books for unsuspecting fans, do some shopping, and Ellen provides a musical interlude just for the former First Lady.

MICHAEL BUBBLE STAND UP TO CANCER

THE LOVE OF A FAMILY

There’s strength in numbers.

The whole family moved to be together and hold their little man in a loving embrace and support of their family.

Michael Bublé joined James Corden in the Carpool Karaoke lane to support a cause near and dear to his heart. First broadcast in the UK as part of a Stand Up to Cancer special, the Canadian crooner spoke to the Late Late Show host about his son Noah, who was previously diagnosed with cancer in 2016.

Bublé said that when they received the news about his son Noah’s cancer diagnosis in 2016, his “whole life ended.”

“It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it because it’s so painful to talk about,” he said.

Holding back tears, he talked about what his family went through and how all of them moved to California to get the best treatment for Noah, who has since been in remission.

“When this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive,” Buble told Corden.

“When they got the cancer out and the chemo was done and they said, ‘We did it, it’s good, he’s okay,’ I fell, I just fell. My wife picks me up now.”

Bublé encouraged viewers to contribute to Stand Up to Cancer before he and Corden ended the emotional Carpool Karaoke session with a stirring rendition of “Home.”
