Trabalho duro, penso no futuro, mas o presente eu vou desembrulhar.( Gabriel O Pensador).

Denunciamos o desmatamento ilegal na Amazônia. Veja a ação!
O Greenpeace deu início a um enorme desafio!
Foi lançada a campanha pelo Desmatamento Zero, onde precisamos reunir 1,4 milhão de assinaturas para levar ao Congresso uma proposta de lei de iniciativa popular, que tem como objetivo levar a taxa de desmatamento do Brasil ao único nível em que pode ser considerado aceitável: o zero.
A fauna e a flora brasileiras estão em risco, e com elas o futuro do Brasil. Mas você pode ajudar a salvá-las.
Junte-se a nós e colabore para que, juntos, continuemos a campanha em prol da natureza e da conscientização das pessoas.
Ajude o Greenpeace a proteger o planeta

These past two weeks have been a series of great learning experiences for the Florida Media Market. 
Attending Hispanicize 2013, where journalists, bloggers, marketers, advertisers, celebrities and new media professionals come together to be informed of the latest innovative ways to strategically reach the growing Latino consumer demographic and show their love and pride of the diverse Latino culture that makes up the US Latino communities, gave us at the Florida Media Market a lot of insight into the world of social media marketing and content development, among other things. 
For more info: Visit Hispanicize site
We also learned of ways we can help educate youth on prevention and treatment for HIV/ AIDS from meeting with our friends at MTV:

At the Florida Media Market, we seek to create and help others create 
'Better Entertainment for a Better World' which is content with an inspirational, educational and meaningful message. To do that, we have to engage our audience, be socially aware, and Perform Acts of Random Kindness.

Business As Usual...


Those in broadcasting have seen the extreme reduction of investment dollars for new stations. We have been limited by the FCC's rule that foreign investment can only go to 25%.
The National Association of Media Brokers has filed comments with the FCC explaining that the demand for capital to execute broadcast transactions exceeds the supply. For that reason, willing foreign investors should be invited in to alleviate the imbalance. Read More...


This new generation of smartphones, YouTube, and easy-to-use video cameras lets everyone tell their stories through videos and shorts. It's important to embrace these new media and grow with technology so we're not left behind.
For example, Vine, a mobile app by Twitter that enables its users to create and post looping 6-second video clips, has reached the top spot in free downloaded apps from the App Store. Read More...
If we want to make the film business our business we need to keep up with the newest trends of film, digital, and new media.

Congratulations to an extraordinary artist/ filmmaker:
