As of this weekend, the City of Essen is officially the European Green Capital. The Lord Mayor of Essen Thomas Kufen launched the title year together with the EU Environment Commissioner Karmenu Vella during a creative orchestrated stage show. Other well-known guests included representatives from the EU, the Federal Government and the State of NRW, such as German Federal Minister for Environment Dr Barbara Hendricks and Minister for Environment for North Rhine-Westphalia Johannes Remmel. Many thousands of visitors came to the subsequent Culture and Families Festival in the Grugapark.
The Lord Mayor of Essen Thomas Kufen emphasised: “Our motto for 2017 is to ‘experience your green miracle’. We would like to invite people from Europe and across the globe to visit us in 2017 and experience their own green miracle. Our city offers many surprises - the opening weekend proved this impressively.” The third greenest city in Germany showed what it was capable of during the Culture and Families Festival. The themes accompanying the City of Essen throughout the title year turned into life in the form of illuminations, dance, theatre, sound installation, light labyrinth, walking acts, exhibitions and much more.

A historic day for AC Milan and Milan. Fondazione Fiera has decided that the winning project for the redevelopment of the old trade fair is the one of AC Milan. The decision made yesterday is the first step, but the dream of the Vice President and CEO Barbara Berlusconi to build a new stadium could soon become reality.
The project, which was presented along with Arup in January, envisions the construction of one of the most innovative stadiums in the world, open to the city and extremely functional. It will contain within itself a hotel, a school, restaurants, children’s playgrounds, walking paths in the green on the rooftop, exhibition space for young artists and other useful services to the citizens. The stadium will have about 50,000 seats and already many international companies are putting themselves forward for a commercial partnership.

Esta temporada festiva, regala un galón de leche. La leche es uno de los artículos más solicitados por las personas que durante todo el año acuden a los bancos de alimentos en busca de ayuda, pero aún más durante la temporada de fiestas, que es cuando los bancos de alimentos –incluidos aquellos situados en tu comunidad- están más solicitados.
Cuando agradezcas por las cosas que has recibido este año, puedes actuar en contra del hambre donando al Proyecto Alimento: Leche Para America, el primer programa nacional destinado a ayudar a entregar los tan deseados y ricos en nutrientes galones de leche a las familias con hambre que más los necesitan.

De costa a costa, miles de familias necesitadas se han beneficiado de las donaciones de leche hechas al Proyecto Alimento: Leche para America, el primer programa nacional cuya meta es entregar la tan deseada y rica en nutrientes leche a familias necesitadas.
Desde abril, Feeding America se ha asociado con las compañías lácteas y los granjeros productores de leche para el Proyecto Alimento: Leche para America. Esta iniciativa hace que sea fácil donar leche a las personas de la comunidad que la necesiten, gracias a un simple “clic” del “ratón” (www.lecheparaamerica.com) o un mensaje de texto ( envíe la palabra “Milk”al 27722 ). Pero todavía queda mucho más trabajo por hacer para poder entregar leche a los más de 46.5 millones de estadounidenses que reciben ayuda anualmente de Feeding America.

There’s a dance that goes on between mothers and their newborns: the initiation of relationship and communication. However, current culturally driven health and child care practices are interrupting the dance and causing more harm than good. As a result, parents, especially first time parents, often require a great deal of education and support.
Dr. Barbara Morrison (DrBarb) is a certified nurse midwife dedicated to advocating, educating and inspiring healthcare reform for newborns and their families. As the founder and CEO of DrBarbCNM, LLC (http://www.DrBarbCNM.com), DrBarb is among the leading advocates of Kangaroo Care, the method of holding a newborn or infant skin-to skin, chest-to-chest to strengthen the bond between parent and child and to encourage breastfeeding and mental, social and physical development.
