RECIPES FOR THIS THANKSGIVING DAY

Image
Thanksgiving Day is coming and if you still do not know what to serve for dinner here are some suggestions... 
 Many people are looking for ways to give a different twist to turkey. This meal suffers from a bad reputation because some people think it lacks flavor and is very juicy, but it  doesn´t need to be so. We present some simple recipes that you might enjoy.   We recommend that instead of spraying the turkey with spices or liquids that you have prepared, is best to inject the turkey, it gives much better flavor that penetrates and expands around the turkey, instead of staying on the surface.  A little white wine and the same amount of apple juice, will give a different flavor to any recipe you tried  GENERAL TIPS:  To determine the size of the turkey calculate 1/4 a pound of meat per person. - To thaw place in the warmest part of the refrigerator. When you're in a hurry, you soak it in cold water, without unwrapping. 1) Roast Turkey Ingredients: 1 gallon cold water 1 1/2 cups coarse …

With an international cast, this play promises to steal the applause of theater fans, as it did this past spring when it was exhibited in the city of Monterey Park, California.  This comedy also shares a great message for the audience! This play of Anibal Aprile, is being adapted and directed by Julian Sergio Oliveira, who also co-produced it with Manuel Sicarios. El Clóset is a play about the Human Soul. It transcends language barriers into a universal story about transformation in a lifetime. Edgar Allan Poe vibrates at the walls of Luis Miguel Baker’s seedy apartment in Hollywood. His wife, Christina, now his widow, comes from Beverly Hills with a mutual friend, Carlos, to investigate …

TODAY WE ARE IN THE FUTURE...

Image
We’ve come a long way since 1985.

When Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled 30 years into the future, we could only imagine the innovations we take for granted today -- new ideas and technologies that have completely changed the way we live, learn, and work.



Back then, if you’d have told me that I’d go from talking on a cell phone to talking cell biology, I would never have believed you. But today, The Michael J. Fox Foundation is helping to spearhead research collaborations to speed a future in which we can treat, cure, and even prevent brain diseases like Parkinson's.

So what’s possible in another 30 years? Call me an optimist, but I believe that by 2045 we’ll find the cures we seek -- especially because of all the smart, passionate people working to make it happen. Doctors and researchers around the world are developing new tools to improve the diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases, to tailor treatments -- for all illnesses -- through precision medicine, and to make life bet…

SALMA HAYEK GETS RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST 2 WOMEN

Image
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has ordered two women to stay away from Salma Hayek and not attempt to contact the actress.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carol Boas Goodson on Friday ordered Liana Philippon and Odette Bodagh to stay away from Hayek, her husband and her 7-year-old daughter for the next three years. The 49-year-old actress obtained a temporary restraining order in August, stating the women had impersonated her and made a veiled threat to kidnap her daughter.

Bodagh said during Friday's hearing that she thought she had a relationship with Hayek but didn't realize she was scaring the actress until the temporary restraining order was granted. Philippon did not attend the hearing. Hayek was nominated for an Academy Award for her starring role in the 2002 film "Frida."

As director of EL NOTICOTO MAGAZINE I want to share this letter from the White House with all of those who supported the Health Reform that has provided health services to all americans, not just those who can afford it.

THANK YOU PRESIDENT OBAMA!


President Barack Obamafrom:The White House to:tonyfranco@elnoticoto.comdate:25 de junio de 2015, 11:21subject:What the Supreme Court decided today:





On March 23, 2010, I sat down at a table in the East Room of the White House and signed my name on a law that said, once and for all, that health care would no longer be a privilege for a few. It would be a right for everyone. Five years later, after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law and multiple challenges before the Supreme Court, here is what we know today: This law worked. It's still working. It has changed and saved American lives. It has set this country on a smarter, stronger course.
And it's here to stay.
If that means something to you today, add your voice here…
