https://www.facebook.com/thedistortedisland Heavy Metal music has literally come of age. After more than 40 years of development and dissemination across the world, it is safe to say that this genre of what some identify as aggressive music has found its way to the most remote corners of the world. Nevertheless, the fact that individuals enjoy Heavy Metal in these diverse settings does not mean that the music itself has identical meanings for all or serves the same purposes. The Caribbean region is probably one of the most overlooked areas in the study of Heavy Metal, mainly due to its geographical position at the periphery of cosmopolitan cities where the music is produced and consumed. Still, Heavy Metal has found a place in the Caribbean through local bands, concert events, and consumers that participate in an imagined metal community. This documentary is the product of an extensive research project led by Dr. Nelson Varas-Díaz that aimed to explore the development and survival of a small, yet highly active, metal scene in the Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico. Heavy Metal music seems completely out of place in this setting when examined in the context of the Island’s culture and history. Still, a local metal scene has existed during the past 30 years despite the challenges faced, and continues to thrive. How have they done it? That is what we explore in this film by focusing on the role of their strong communal ties that help them critically assess questions related to national identities, language, colonial politics, religion, gender, social transgression, and survival. You will never see the Caribbean in the same way… Credits: Nelson Varas-Díaz, PhD Executive Producer Eliut Rivera-Segarra Sigrid Mendoza Associate Producers Osvaldo González Sepúlveda Director

National Puerto Rican Day Parade Sunday June 12, 2016 Puerto Rican Day Parade video on my facebook page at this link add us as a friend on http://www.facebook.com/tradingphotostv Puerto Rico History The National Puerto Rican Day Parade (NPRDP) takes place annually along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, on the second Sunday in June, in honor of the nearly 4 million inhabitants of Puerto Rico and over 4 million people of Puerto Rican birth or heritage residing in the United States. Originally, the Desfile Puertorriqueño, Inc., was born of the imperative necessity of translating Puerto Rican achievements into a visible demonstration of the strength of the Puerto Rican community, in order to organize and support our Latino counterparts. The first parade was held on Sunday, April 13, 1958, in Spanish Harlem "El Barrio"; subsequently, the organization found its new home along Fifth Avenue in New York City. In 1995, the National Puerto Rican Day Parade, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) organization, was formed from its predecessor, the New York Puerto Rican Parade, when Dr. Ramón S. Vélez and the parade board envisioned a national concept for demonstrating the cultural pride of our community. Among the NPRDP founding members, Madelyn Lugo and Maria Román Dumén still remain active board members. This new organizational structure not only broadened the scale of the parade itself but enhanced its ability to promote cultural awareness, education, leadership and community engagement among Puerto Ricans. Annually, the NPRDP hosts over fifteen major events throughout the city including educational and scholarship receptions, music festivals, health walkathons, Sports Event Juegos Boricuas, Golden Age Fiesta for seniors, and our search for Miss Puerto Rico. In 2007, we celebrated our 50th Anniversary with more than 100,000 marching participants and nearly three million spectators along the parade route. The parade continues to attract prominent leaders in the Puerto Rican community including celebrities like Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, El Gran Combo, Geraldo Rivera, Rosie Perez and many more. Taino The parade marches along Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 79th Street and has grown to become the largest demonstration of ethnic pride in the nation. The parade is a cultural icon and a part of the cultural fabric of New York City. MISSION The NPRDP was established to create national awareness of Puerto Rican contributions. Our mission is to empower the Puerto Rican community through promoting economic development, education, social advancement and environmental awareness. We have a responsibility to inspire our youth and instill a strong sense of self worth and pride in our community. http://www.nationalpuertoricandaypara... 5 horas, + original y exclusivo de vídeo completo, National Puerto Rican Day Parade 2016, que filmó este evento para que usted http://www.tradingphotos.com Puerto Desfile del Día Nacional de Puerto Domingo, 12 de junio 2016 Desfile Puertorriqueño de vídeo , Puerto del desfile del día nacional rican viven Desfile Puertorriqueño de Nueva York 2016 Ciudad de Nueva York   Agréganos como amigo en http://www.facebook.com/tradingphotostv fuerte sentido de autoestima y orgullo en nuestra comunidad. http://www.nationalpuertoricandaypara...

San Juan, officially Municipio de la Ciudad Capital San Juan Bautista (Municipality of the Capital City, Saint John the Baptist), is the capital and most populous municipality in Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 395,326 making it the 46th-largest city under the jurisdiction of the United States. San Juan was founded by Spanish colonists in 1521, who called it Ciudad de Puerto Rico ("Rich Port City"). Puerto Rico's capital is the second oldest European-established city in the Americas, after Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic.[5] Several historical buildings are located in San Juan; among the most notable are the city's former defensive forts, Fort San Felipe del Morro and Fort San Cristóbal, and La Fortaleza, the oldest executive mansion in continuous use in the Americas. Today, San Juan is one of Puerto Rico's most important seaports,[6] and is the island's manufacturing[citation needed], financial, cultural, and tourism center. The population of the Metropolitan Statistical Area, including San Juan and the municipalities of Bayamón, Guaynabo, Cataño, Canóvanas, Caguas, Toa Alta, Toa Baja, Carolina and Trujillo Alto, is about 2 million inhabitants; thus, about half the population of Puerto Rico now lives and works in this area.[7] San Juan is also a principal city of the San Juan-Caguas-Fajardo Combined Statistical Area. The city has been the host of numerous important events within the sports community, including the 1979 Pan American Games, 1966 Central American and Caribbean Games, 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classics, the Caribbean Series and the Special Olympics and MLB San Juan Series in 2010.

Now more than ever before people all over the planet are seeking new sustainable models for living. EcoVillages and ecological communities have been emerging as a viable alternative where people can live together in cooperation and harmony with the natural world. 'A New We' explores 10 such communities in Europe and opens doors to further exploration and discovery on the new 'Global EcoVillage & Sustainable Community Network'! Please join the conversation and participate in the 'A New We' initiative which aims towards evolving the EcoVillage model into the 21st century! The Austrian documentary filmmaker Stefan Wolf traveled through Europe in order to explore and document well established eco-communities that portray some of the broad spectrum of lifestyle possibilities that are part of our global effort to transition to a sustainable world. Experience ecovillages and ecological communities in Europe in this two-hour long documentary portrait. The variety of situations and voices in 'A New We' inspires hope for the future of humanity and all life on the planet. The lives shown here are more motivated by imagination, vision, respect, and cooperation than by economic forces and social expectations. In these 10 communities, the creative solutions to many social, environmental and economic challenges exemplify the nearly infinite capacity for human-, community- and self-development. It’s a film that enlightens, encourages and spreads hope – for a new world and A New We.
