Yellow Cab of Broward; A Company You Can Trust

Yellow Cab Logo

“We are not your grandparents ride anymore” SSince its inception, Yellow Cab of Broward has always been an innovator in the taxi cab industry. We began by having the first wheelchair accessible vehicle in 1967, and continued by having the first computer aided dispatch in 1986. We were the first to use GPS technology to send the closest car to pick up passengers in 2002. Additionally, Yellow Cab was the first in the state to install cameras in our vehicles, and in August 2017 launched the “No More Meters/Guaranteed pricing initiative. “We have always been on the cutting edge of the taxi industry,” said John Camillo, Yellow Cab of Broward’s president and CEO. And now we’re the first to use smart tablet technology to provide passengers with their fare in advance.” Yellow Cab’s goal is to accommodate and serve our customers by offering a guaranteed rate, because we knew it would resonate with the public. We wanted to eliminate the level of unknown and anxiety, by providing guaranteed pricing. Fares are calculated based on google maps using the most direct route to one’s destination and are consistent as they are mandated by the Department of Weights and Measures. There is …

Coming Out As A Republican To My Democrat Family Went Worse Than Coming Out Gay

coming out republican

I reached my threshold where no amount of hypothetical Republican bigotry or greed could approach the magnitude of hypocrisy, corruption, or criminality I saw rotting Democrats. II am not a sex offender. But a number of my friends no longer have time to see me. Lifelong acquaintances now regard me with fear and distrust. I have been unfriended en masse on social media and excoriated by friends who deign to remain. And I have been singly excluded from social gatherings when the rest of my family was invited. No, I am not a sex offender. I am something even worse than that. I am a Donald Trump supporter. I was raised in a liberal Jewish family in Washington DC, where my dad served as a Democratic congressman for Los Angeles. Accordingly, I was indoctrinated with all of the correct values and views. When I was seven, my dad took me on a celebrity-packed camping trip to Death Valley as part of a campaign to protect California’s deserts. Israel took center stage in family discussions. I attended a Quaker elementary school, where I learned the black national anthem before I knew the “Star Spangled Banner.” In high school art class, I …

How To Make Irish Coffee

How to Make Irish Coffee

It’s that time of year where the nights are cool and the days are pleasant. On those nights you want something to warm your bones, there’s nothing better than an Irish Coffee. But what is it and how do you make it? Irish coffee (Irish: caife Gaelach) is a cocktail consisting of hot coffee, Irish whiskey, and sugar (some recipes specify that brown sugar should be used), stirred, and topped with thick cream. The coffee is drunk through the cream. The original recipe explicitly uses cream that has not been whipped, although drinks made with whipped cream are often sold as “Irish coffee”. Black coffee is poured into the mug. Whiskey and at least one level teaspoon of sugar is stirred in until fully dissolved. The sugar is essential for floating liquid cream on top. Thick cream is carefully poured over the back of a spoon initially held just above the surface of the coffee and gradually raised a little. The layer of cream will float on the coffee without mixing. The coffee is drunk through the layer of cream. What You Need Makes 1 cup Ingredients 6 ounces hot, freshly brewed coffee 1 teaspoon granulated sugar 1 teaspoon packed …

Four Money Issues Couples Should Agree On

Money issues to agree on

SSpouses often harbor different opinions on a variety of subjects. From the style of clothes and haircuts they like on each other to the TV shows they watch every evening, marriage requires plenty of compromise. While frivolous things such as choosing between Monday Night Football and Dancing with the Stars might conjure up a minor squabble, when it comes to arguments over money, respective differences can lead to more than just mild disagreements. “Income and spending are at the heart of any partnership – family as well as business,” says Al Jacobs, an entrepreneur, real estate investor and author of the book Roadway to Prosperity (www.roadwaytoprosperity.com). “Just as business partners need to be on the same page when it comes to spending company money, spouses need to come together to avoid creating a crisis situation that could ruin a marriage.” Jacobs says there are four basic issues that would put families in better financial shape if both spouses could be in accord on them: • Life insurance. Every family provider should arrange financially for his or her survivors in the event of an untimely death. A common way to accomplish this is with life insurance. This is where controversy arises. …

Four Ways To Stay Sober Through The Summer Holiday Drinking Season

Staying Sober

Here comes the summer drinking season—June graduations and weddings, Fourth of July, the beach, and barbecues! What could go wrong? Plenty, if you don’t have a plan for getting through the summer sober. In Alcoholics Anonymous, we call the period from Thanksgiving through Christmas and New Year the “Bermuda Triangle” of sobriety—many alkies come in, but not all make it through. If anything, summer is more dangerous for people in recovery, because there are so many social cues to drink. What’s a recovering alkie or addict to do? Here’s some kitchen-tested advice that gets passed along the Twelve Step meetings as holiday periods approach. No. 1: Have an exit strategy. Even before you get to the event, whether it’s a barbecue, a wedding, or holiday party, have a plan for leaving as soon as you feel uncomfortable. When everybody’s drinking, the pace of conversation and behavior in general seems to suddenly accelerate. This is an extremely uncomfortable moment for people newly in recovery, and sometimes for people who have been clean and sober a long time. When that moment arises, you want to have a plan for leaving. Did you come in your own car? Can you call an Uber …

How Subarus Came to Be Seen as Cars for Lesbians

Subaru

The reputation isn’t just a stereotype—it’s the result of a calculated, highly progressive ad campaign launched 20 years ago. How do you advertise a car that journalists describe as “sturdy, if drab”? That was the question faced by Subaru of America executives in the 1990s. After the company’s attempts to reinvigorate sales—by releasing its first luxury car and hiring a hip ad agency to introduce it to the public—failed, it changed its approach. Rather than fight larger car companies over the same demographic of white, 18- to 35-year-olds living in the suburbs, executives decided to market their cars to niche groups—such as outdoorsy types who liked that Subarus could handle dirt roads. In the 1990s, Subaru’s unique selling point was that the company increasingly made all-wheel drive standard on all its cars. When the company’s marketers went searching for people willing to pay a premium for all-wheel drive, they identified four core groups who were responsible for half of the company’s American sales: teachers and educators, health-care professionals, IT professionals, and outdoorsy types. Then they discovered a fifth: lesbians. “When we did the research, we found pockets of the country like Northampton, Massachusetts, and Portland, Oregon, where the head of …

Pride Fort Lauderdale New Venue Is HUGE Success!

Pride Fort Lauderdale regroups and puts together a fantastic event on the beach. Blue skies for miles and a cool ocean breeze, that’s Fort Lauderdale in February. This year Fort Lauderdale Pride was held at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park South and everyone we talked to seemed pretty excited about the change in venue and philosophy. Fort Lauderdale Pride has always been a “pay to play” event where attendees paid $10 to come in and celebrate with their fellow cohorts. Some have maintained that Pride is a celebration of who we are and celebrating should be a free experience. Well, those people got what they wanted this year! Not only was Pride Fort Lauderdale a free event but it was held in one of the hottest spring destinations on earth. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and though parking was a challenge, shuttle services were provided and like my mother always said, “Walking isn’t crowded.”  If you missed this year’s event, look forward to next year because if Pride Fort Lauderdale continues on this path, it will be THE event of the year.

OITNB’s Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli reveal how they came out & fell in love

Samira Wiley and Lauren Morell

Theirs is a love story made in Hollywood — and Astoria, Queens, where “Orange Is the New Black” is made. Writer/producer Lauren Morelli came out in 2014 after falling in love with Samira Wiley, who played Poussey on Netflix’s hit show. They met on the New York City soundstage in 2012, and for the first time are revealing how the magic happened. “We spent four days in a row working together,” Wiley told Out. “Honestly, I thought she was gay the first time I met her.” Wiley has been out for several years, a proud lesbian in a religious family. Her parents are pastors of the first black Baptist church to perform same-sex union ceremonies in Washington, D.C. “I’d already seen Samira’s audition tape and immediately had a crush on her — the complication being that I was married to a man at the time,” Morelli said in the interview with Out. “I came to New York to shoot my first episode. I was on set, sitting in front of the monitors, and she and Lea DeLaria, who plays Big Boo, walked up to me. Our set is like a lesbian utopia, and I remember thinking, They’re flirting with me.” …
