Adrianne Gonzalez

Adrianne Gonzalez is one semester away from completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Media at Florida International University.

Before deciding on her major, she studied Audio Engineering, with emphasis on Architectural Acoustic Engineering. Parallel to this field, she was studying piano performance and music theory in a separate academy in Miami under the Carnegie Hall Achievement Program. Having played guitar for several years, she was set in her path.

It wasn’t until she took a couple elective courses in film and television, that she decided to switch degrees and jump into FIU’s Broadcast Media Bachelor's program.

Production is something Adrianne sees in her future. She plans to pursue her interests in culture and arts through hands-on creative and experimental productions. She has recently started her own podcast and is connecting with the art community to collaborate with her vision.

The FDA has issued an advisory and recall for all liquid drug products made at Davie-based drug company PharmaTech. This is the second recall in the last 10 months, including products widely used by infants and toddlers.

The first contamination advisory was issued after Burkholderia cepaci was found in the drug company's water system. B. cepacia,  a bacteria known to cause pneumonia in people with weakened immune systems and cystic fibrosis, among other diseases, has potentially serious effects. The contaminated water was used during the manufacturing of each liquid medication.

Saturday morning at Bayside in Miami wasn’t the typical shopping and dining experience. The wall surrounding the Torch of Friendship had a giant Venezuelan flag with signatures and wishes written on the fabric.

There was an open-mic protest, organized by local community members and activists. Cuban-Americans, Venezuelan-Americans, and Venezuelans all took turns sharing stories, opinions, and prayers.
