8 Latino Stars Who Voice Iconic Animated Characters
Huffington Post - 9 months
By Maria O. Alvarez, Common Sense Media Not long ago, animated shows only trotted out Latino characters (think Speedy Gonzales from Looney Tunes and Pedro the Chihuahua from Lady and the Tramp) as cartoonish stereotypes of Hispanic culture. What a difference a few years and a few successful blockbusters make! Now, A-list Latino celebrities are winning major roles in animated movies ― and making a big impact on kids. Actors like John Leguizamo (Sid the Sloth from Ice Age) and Shakira (Gazelle from Zootopia) are changing the false perceptions perpetuated by earlier attempts to represent Spanish-speaking people. And they’re pretty great role models, too.  Salma Hayek, Kitty Softpaws in Puss with Boots and Cutlass Liz in The Pirates: Band of Misfits. Versatile, funny, and smart, Hayek gives voice to memorable characters who are not afraid to go after what they want. John Leguizamo, Sid the Sloth in Ice Age and Alex the prehistoric bird in Walking with Dinosaurs. Leguizamo’s spe...

This New App Is Tinder For Sperm And Egg Donors
Huffington Post - 10 months
Flicking through the profiles, you’ll see hopeful smiles paired with assurances of high IQs, emotional maturity, Harvard degrees, excellent genes, and clear medical histories. But this isn’t a dating app. Just a Baby, an app launched in February in Australia, can connect you with “biological conception partners.” It’s a Tinder-like matching service where you can offer or seek sperm, eggs, or surrogates. In its first two months, it’s been downloaded 3,000 times ― and while members are mainly based in Australia, membership is growing in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. as word spreads. Of course, sperm and egg donation aren’t new. Techniques to freeze sperm were invented in the 1950s, giving way to sperm banks. The first baby created with a donor egg was born in Australia in 1983, and egg donor agencies have been around since the early 1990s. But demand for surrogates and gametes ― the technical term for sperm and oocytes, or immature eggs ― continues to rise. More than 20 p...

The youngest cast members of “Stranger Things” are A-list stars in their own right. But even they couldn’t resist being star-struck during Sunday’s 2017 Golden Globe Awards. Millie Bobby Brown, who plays the beloved Eleven in the Golden Globe-nominated Netflix show, took full advantage of her own star power to get the most epic collection of celebrity selfies during the awards weekend. She snagged photos with more than 30 stars in the past few days, including Pharrell Williams, Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Jonah Hill, Priyanka Chopra, Ryan Gosling, two of the three Jonas brothers and Blake Lively, to name a few. We’re not sure who’s more lucky ― Brown or the celebs who had the opportunity to take a picture with the talented 12-year-old? this has been the most incredible and overwhelming few days of my life!

Why Sofia Vergara Relying On Latina Stereotypes For Laughs Is So Damaging
Huffington Post - about 1 year
I used to love Sofía Vergara. I was proud to call her a fellow Colombian immigrant. I thought she was a positive representation of my country during a time when most Americans seemed to think it was synonymous with cocaine and Pablo Escobar.  I loved that she was beautiful and charming but didn’t take herself too seriously ― a combination that’s made her a darling in the entertainment industry. Her shrewd business sense and ability to juggle numerous endorsement deals, merchandise lines and the Hispanic talent management company, Latin WE have made her the highest paid actress on television for five consecutive years.  Vergara is a self-made businesswoman who has built a profitable and impressive empire. She is well beyond needing to rely on Latina stereotypes for a laugh ― which is why it’s so frustrating to watch her step on screen (or on a revolving Emmy platform) and continually make herself the butt of the joke. Unfortunately, she did little to change...

You Should Never Wear Thumb Rings. It's A Juju Thing.
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Embed from Getty Images In his book "Mystic's Musings", Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has warned women to never wear any metal rings on their thumbs as it "will lead to attracting occult forms". Sadhguru, a name which means uneducated guru, is an Enlightened Yogi, Mystic, Humanitarian, New York Times Bestselling Author, and more than likely a genius. So as much as I am a long term fan of fashion guru and thumb ring advocate, Rachel Zoe, (I love receiving her quarterly Box of Style and fashion advice via The Zoe Report) I am going to have to draw the line here. Rachel is even quoted as saying "why are you asking me if I've read a book". I've read the book, Rachel, it's now up to you to stop just accessorising with gay abandon and enlighten your fashion followers! Sadhguru and Rachel Zoe both share an affinity for snake jewelry. Spiritual seekers and Isha meditators can buy copper snake rings from Isha Shoppe USA to be worn only on the ...
