Things That Matter

One Year Ago, J.Lo And A.Rod Shared Moments From Their Trip To Puerto Rico And Donated 2 Million Dollars

On the night of the Golden Globe Awards last year, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were in Puerto Rico announcing a donation of $2 million that will be made to multiple Primary Health Centers across the island. In the posts J.Lo and A.Rod shared across their Instagram profiles, they affirm their support for the people of Puerto Rico and for the women showing their solidarity to the Time’s Up initiative.

Here’s the video of J.Lo speaking about the #TimesUp movement, the fight for equality for women and the people of Puerto Rico, who have yet to receive full aid after Hurricane Maria.

Although J.Lo wasn’t present at the Golden Globes, she dressed in all black to show her support and solidarity with the Time’s Up movement, a legal defense fund set up to combat sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination in the workplace. Along with other talented women who dressed in all black at the Golden Globes, Lopez wants women to receive fair and equal treatment in all industries.

This is the same type of equality she wants for the people of Puerto Rico. Just like any other group of U.S. citizens, Puerto Ricans deserve the same care and respect, which is what she emphasizes at this press conference.

Also behind the mic at the press conference was J.Lo’s partner, Alex Rodriguez.

…”Todos somos iguales…” ???? #bettertogether

At the conference, A.Rod said, “Todos somos iguales,” meaning, “We are all the same.” He wants to spread awareness on the continuing devastation in Puerto Rico, four months after Hurricane Maria hit. It’s his hope that the island receives the care and support it deserves.

While in Puerto Rico, J.Lo and A.Rod got the chance to meet some powerful and resilient people, including this man.

So much respect to this man. ?? Despite the hardships, he manages to stay strong.

In this video, posted by A.Rod, you see the spirit and hope that remains in Puerto despite the damage they are still dealing with.

This is beautiful. ??❤️ La lucha sigue.

A post shared by 787 (@gabrielaberlingeri) on

It seems like a woman innocently sipping a smoothie and enjoying her day. However, if you look closely, you will see that the young woman is actually wearing a ring on an important finger.

The news is spreading fast all over social media.

Nothing has been confirmed but social media works as good as a small-town rumor mill. As soon as one person sees it, everyone has to know about it. Like, it can never just be a little secret for people hold among themselves. Twitter is the land of snap reactions and unfounded claims.

The rumor has already started breaking hearts across the internet.

Honestly, the best part about celebrities is believing that you can one day be their boo. Now, with this cryptic video, it is clear that Bad Bunny’s heart is being permanently taken away from us.

Some folks are just mad.

Like, calm down. It is literally not a big deal because of the likelihood of finding and marrying a celebrity is pretty low. Hollywood has spent too much time trying to get us to believe that that was so possible.

Some people are happy for the young woman finding happiness.

Nothing wrong with celebrating someone who is winning at life. If you were engaged to Bad Bunny, you’d be happy too.

From Puerto Rico To New York, Hurricane Isaías Has Devastated Millions

Hurricane Isaías is just one hurricane of an expectedly active season. The storm-battered the Caribbean islands before making its way to the Carolinas and up the east coast. The storm has killed 5 people and we are still at the beginning of hurricane season.

Tropical Storm Isaías slammed into Puerto Rico on July 31.

The storm knocked out power to thousands of Puerto Ricans as the storm approached. Dozens had to be rescued from the area of Mayaguez as flooding devastated the area. José Ortiz, the CEO of the state-run power company resigned after the power outages rocked the island still reeling from hurricanes and earthquakes.

The storm grew to a category 1 hurricane as it battered the Bahamas.

The storm killed at least one person in the Bahamas and weakened to a tropical storm as it hit the island. The storm triggered a series of warning along the Florida coastline from Boca Raton to Brevard county. The storm ravaged parts of the Bahamas with winds up to 80 miles per hour.

Florida was spared much of the storm as it changed course.

Florida, which is already grappling with a terrifyingly out of control Covid outbreak, was spared a direct hit from Hurricane Isaías. The storm turned north and brushed along Florida’s eastern coastline. The storm was headed directly to the Carolinas.

North and South Carolina braced for a direct hit from the storm as it made its way north.

The storm made landfall with 85 mile-per-hour winds in the Carolinas bring heavy winds and flooding. Millions of people lost power as the storm lashed the east coast for two days while making its way up to New York. Flooding was particularly devastating in Pennsylvania as the storm forced millions sin to some form of flood warning.

The storm arrived in New York on August 4 and packed a punch.

Tropical Storm Isaías devastated the tri-state region. Millions are without power in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut after the storm destroyed homes, power lines, and cars.

Officials for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are warning the east coast of a more active hurricane season. After Isaías, the season could bring 10 more hurricanes with potentially devastating effects. As the season picks up, it is important to be prepared. Makes sure you have an emergency plan and an emergency kit.
