Miami Dade College: Top degree producer
Miami Times staff report I 8/28/2014,9 a.m.
Miami Dade College (MDC) confers the most associate degrees according to Community College
Week's Top 100.
This past spring, MDC graduated nearly 15,000 students, most of whom were awarded associate
degrees, many of which feed into the College's baccalaureate degree pathways, which include nursing,
elementary education and biological sciences, among others for in demand fields.
Dr. Eduardo J. Padron
MDC uses the success measure, which is the percentage of students who have graduated, remain
enrolled in good standing, or have transferred in good standing to other academic institutions. The latest
figure is 87 percent for all degree types.
Community College Week's Top 100 lists the colleges conferring the most associate degrees. It analyzes
the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) among the nation's top 100 associate
degree producers.
"We've always maintained that education changes lives, and this report validates this premise," said
MDC President Dr. Eduardo J. Padron. "We strive every day to serve those in need, and are very proud
of the crucial role MDC plays in making higher education accessible and affordable, providing top-of­
the-line programs and an abundance of opportunities to those who may not otherwise have access to a
college education."

Handful oflocal book publishers still tell South Florida stories By
South Florida produces more
than enough happenings to keep
a book publisher busy for years.
At the moment, there just aren't

But in an industry undergoing
dramatic change from the Big 5
publishers - Penguin Random
House, Hachette, HarperCollins,
Macmillan and Simon & Schuster
- to the little guy, the questions
remains: why start publishing?
For Arva Parks, her nearly 25­
year publishing venture Centen­
nial Press is a natural extension of
her love for Miami.
Authors and companies get
very personal attention at Cen­
tennial Press. Typically, an orga­
nization approaches Ms. Parks
with a concept or project, some­
times with an author attached.
Ms. Parks will then facilitate the
design, writing and publication,
drawing on her extensive knowl­
edge of Miimi-area history and
her personal archives.
"They just don't send me a
manllscri pt and get a book back,"
Ms. Parks said. "I work with the
companies. That's what makes it
unique as far as the local element.
A lot of the people I end up
working with, I know. "
At'Centennial Press, though

some will be paid for by the
author or the company heading
the project, and still others will
follow a more traditional model
of paying for the project in its
entirety and hoping to make back
the money spent in sales.
"There really aren't that many
local publishers," said Mitchell
Kaplan, owner ofBooks & Books
and chair of the Miami Book Fair
International's board of direc­
tors. "Not every town has a lot of
book publishers. Book publish­
ing just isn't something that is
widely prevalent."
Much like starting a local book­
store, done out of a passion for
books, book publishing is most
likely done because "it's some­
thing you feel like you just can't
say no to. Like any of the arts, it's
done out of a sense of pass i n.
It's very idiosyncratic, it takes

MIFFecito fest to honour Miami's revamped Tower Theatre
10 July, 2014
I By Jeremy Kay
Top brass at the Miami International Film Festival (Mia miFF) have organised a mid-season festival to celebrate the re­
opening of the Tower Theater.
The four-day MIFFecito will run from October 16-19 exclusively at the Tower Theater.
The event will feature eight to 10 red carpet premieres accompanied by celebrity and film-maker appearances, parties
and "additional social events." Organisers will announce the programme in early September.
The venue was close for several months for renovation works and now boasts 4K digital capabilities.
"Following the overwhelming success of our 31st annual edition this past March, common refrains from Miami movie­
lovers were laments about the long wait until next year's Miami International Film Festival," said MiamiFF executive
director Jaie Laplante.
"Just as Miami's beloved cafecito culture is an enduring part of life in the Magic City, so too will MIFFecito provide the
perfect teaser taste to next year's 32nd edition running March 6-15, 2015."n

Former Miami Dade College art teacher, artist Bob Huff
dies at 69
By Carli Teproff
[email protected]
Growing up in a family of builders, Robert
"Bob," Huff used his knowledge of
architecture and his passion for tools to
create sculptures, three-dimensional
canvases and other pieces of art.
"There isn't a tool around Bob didn't know
how to use," said Barbara Young, his wife
of 27 years. "He had a wonderful way of
working with materials to create beautiful
pieces of art."
Huff, who was a prominent figure on
Miami's art scene for decades - for his
work and his role as a former professor and
chairman of the art department at Miami
Dade College - died Friday after a long
battle with cancer. He was 69.

Robert 'Bob' Huff, a former professor at Miami Dade College and an artist, died Friday at age 69. His wife described her husband as a big
man with a big heart, and said his art and
his can-do spirit kept him fighting until the
"He took everything in stride," she said, adding that his favorite place was in his studio,
fishing or enjoying nature.
Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 1945, he moved to Dunedin with his family when he was
11. He graduated from the University of South Florida in 1968 with a fine arts degree.
"He was thinking of going into engineering and then he saw a Monet painting and that was
it," said his wife.
Soon after graduating, he started teaching sculpting and 3-D design at was then Miami­
Dade Community College South Campus. Over the years he taught scores of artists-in-the

Karen Rifas, who took classes with Huff during the 1970s, said Huff helped shape her
career as an artist.

cuervos.jpg)Un recuento necesario
Cuando el ex estudiante de segundo ano de medicina, San Miguel
Molina Cobas mostro sus dotes de agitador y se vinculo con la
Ferrer comenzo a potenciarlo como posible "lider juvenil" y en corto
tiempo paso a integrar el proyecto subversivo (disfrazado de
inocentes becas estudiantiles) "Somos un solo Pueblo".
Sinopsis del proyecto y su fracaso
El proyecto Somos un Solo Pueblo, fue creado por la Fundacion para
los Derechos Humanos en Cuba (FHRC, por sus siglas en ingles) en colaboracion con el Miami Dade
College (MDC) y el curso inicio en enero pasado con 17 estudiantes, entre ellos Molina Cobas; quienes
alegaban "que no podrian realizarse profesionalmente en la isla por sus ideales politicos", sin embargo llegaron
al MDC para recibir entrenamiento en tecnicas subversivas; aunque al iniciarse el curso, Rolando
Montoya, Rector de dicha institucion, nego la vinculacion del mismo con la politica.
EI proyecto ya habia dado de que hablar entre contrarrevolucionarios de la isla por el evidente
nepotismo que reino en la seleccion de los becarios, como por ejemplo la hija de Berta Soler y Angel
Moya, Lienys Caridad Moya Soler, una sobrina de Moya, otra sobrina del "Coco" Farinas y la hija de
Felix Navarro y tambien entre grupos contrarrevolucionarios de Miami en rivalidad con la Fundacion
Nacional Cubano Americana (FNCA), por el dinero que les otorga la USAID, por el bajo nivel de los
estudiantes seleccionados y por las sospechas de que estas becas podrian ser la justificacion para
emigrar; aunque a su llegada, los jovenes fueron obligados a prestar juramento de regresar a Cuba so
pena de reembolsar los gastos incurridos, aproximadamente de 16 mil USD.
Pero esta advertencia fue en vano y a pesar de paseos, encuentros con politicos como Bob Menendez e
Ileana Ross, tres de los chicos faltaron al juramento y decidieron quedarse en EE.UU . Sus nombres: el
rapero Raudel Collazo, Aleidys Cata Moya, sobrina de Berta Soler y Angel Moya y para sorpresa -quizas
no tan sorpresa- de los miembros de la UNPACU, el ahijado de Jose Daniel Ferrer, San Miguel Molina
Cobas; a quien no Ie importo defraudar a su padrino.

A raiz del escandalo que hab!an provocado anteriormente estos becarios, criticados por la OpinIOn
publica por sus comportamientos inadecuados (hasta consumo de drogas, razon por la que el graffitero
conocido por El Sexto tuvo que regresar a la isla antes de tiempo) y por los tres "factores de cambio" que
se les quedaron alla, el Departamento de Estado y la USAID critican a la FNCA y sus directivos as! como
a los patrocinadores del proyecto en Cuba: Berta Soler y Coco Farinas por la mala seleccion de los
estudiantes, ademas de que la propia Soler, segun revela el periodista Edmundo Garda
(http ://latardesemueve .com/archivesI1934), no solo permitio a esos jovenes viajar a Miami conociendo
sus intenciones de desertar sino que los apoya en su decision de no regresar a Cuba, oponiendose
abiertamente a las instrucciones de su principal patrocinador. En consecuencia, se han suspendido las
becas en el MDC as! que los contrarrevolucionarios en la isla con ganas de emigrar tendran que esperar
a que se les ocurra un nuevo proyecto, as! sea el mismo perro con diferente collar.
las expectativas de Ferrer Garda?
Segun el blog Miradas Encontradas, San Miguet pecando 0 haciendose el ingenuo, planteo en
UNIVISION 23 que la Fundacion no 10 apoya: "No entiende que no quieran (La Fundaci6n) que hagamos [0
mismo que elios hicieron", como si no supiera que no es alla donde "hace falta ", si no aqu! en Santiago de
Cuba para -con las estrategias de subversion aprehendidas en el MDC- servir mejor a la "causa".
As! que, Ferrer Garda tambien tendra que esperar a que aparezca otro joven " con habilidades", mientras
dicen que no hay quien Ie hable de San Miguel Molina Cobas, pero ya 10 dice un viejo refran: "Cria
cuervos, que ya te sacaran los ojos".
