Día del Locutor!! Saludos y Gracias por Compartir Su Voz

Posted on

  

Se celebra el 18 de abril de cada año, instituido por medio del Decreto N° 4476 publicado el 2 de abril de 1974 por orden del Presidente Constitucional de la República DR. Joaquín Balaguer Ricardo. Se escogió el 18 de abril debido a que en el año 1938, la entonces Dirección General de Telecomunicaciones llevó a cabo por primera vez exámenes para conceder carné oficial a los locutores. sobre el día del locutor dominicano que es cada 18 de abril de cada año.  

Mil Gracias a El Genio De La Radio DJArgenis de TeleMicro en La República Dominicana, Jarabacoa. Argenis gracias por tu tiempo, talento, y tu voz animando al mundo y dándonos vitalidad para nuestra causa AmateAhora Voces Para La Salud!!!! Aquí mi colegas de Locucion en http://www.PLANETAXLIVE.com. Un reconocimiento en especial para la Licenciada Edna Rodriguez por ser mi Coach de Locucion y Productor Ejecutivo Xavier Cambray por incorporarme en su equipo. Fuerte Abrazo!

Muchos se preguntan y por qué el 18 de abril y no otro día? Todo comenzó el 18 de abril del año 1938 donde el Departamento de Comunicaciones del Gobierno Dominicano realizó en Santo Domingo el primer examen para aspirante a locutores con la intención de regularizar la radiodifusión nacional. 

Entre los primeros participantes se encontraba Expedy Pou, Homero León Díaz y Pedro Julio Santana, padre y desde entonces el locutor es considerado un profesional de la palabra hablada. 

Para el 2 de abril de 1974 fue publicado mediante Decreto No.4476 por orden del Presidente Constitucional de la República Dr. Joaquín Balaguer Ricardo fue instituido de que el 18 de abril de cada año sea celebrado el día del locutor dominicano y hoy en día en el país, actualmente se estima que hay más de 30,000 locutores y locutoras autorizados por la Comisión Nacional de Espectáculos Públicos y Radiofonía.

Governor Rauner we urge you to restore Immigrant Services, 23 essential services suspended including Health Care and Nutrition

On Friday afternoon, April 3rd, the Illinois Department of Human Services suspended funding for 23 essential programs, including Immigrant Services, effective immediately. This is a devastating blow to our communities. We are rallying at the Thompson Center to demand that Governor Rauner restore the Immigrant Services and the other 23 essential services. Cutting programs that return five dollars for every dollar invested shows poor business sense, and playing politics with the services our families need is poor governance. Gather and use your voice to tell Governor Rauner that we will not stand for this attack on immigrant families!

11087482_10153216109186672_4390352989375192724_o

One of our fellow ÁmateAhora Voices for Health Advocates, Anahi Tapia, shares with us, “As you may know by now, Governor Rauner, in a sneaky and cowardly move, cut off funding for all immigrant services in Illinois last Friday afternoon, effective immediately. As of today, immigrants across Illinois lose access to assistance regarding US citizenship, health care, nutrition, and other services that help them thrive and contribute to our economy and community. For someone who portrays himself as a smart businessman committed to our state’s economic recovery, Governor Rauner seems oblivious to the five-fold returns that our state’s investment in immigrant communities create for our entire state”. 3fdf431

Anahi Calls Us to Action (Anahi Tapia Picture, right) 
This week it is critical for Governor Rauner to hear from you that ending immigrant services is unacceptable. We need you to step up on behalf of immigrants across Illinois and tell the governor to reinstate services immediately. Here’s what we need you to do today:

1. Call Governor Rauner’s office now: 217-782-0244 and tell him to reinstate funding for immigrant services immediately.

2. Sign up to join ICIRR Action in person at a protest Wednesday at noon at the Thompson Center in downtown Chicago.

3. Forward this to 5 people you know and ask them to join you in calling the Governor’s office today and coming to the action on Wednesday.

If there were ever a time that we needed you, it’s today. Please take 5 minutes now to act for immigrants across Illinois.

Governor Rauner, Restore Our Essential Services! Follow the link for more information. https://www.facebook.com/events/854447964599014/

Meet Gerry Yumul 2015 “I am CardioSmart” Grand Prize Winner thanks to the ACC

Gerry Yumul – Coronary Artery Disease, Victoria, MN
@CardioSmart, American College of Cardiology
CardioSmart
While at the dental office in February, I disclosed my chest pain and trip to urgent care, but the dentist said that I should be fine since I wasn’t experiencing any unusual symptoms. But when he injected Novocain into my gums, I fainted and was out for around 7 seconds. After I came to, the dentist strongly recommended that I go back to urgent care. My wife drove me to urgent care, where I got an ECG and was advised to see a cardiologist.

The following week I saw my first cardiologist, Dr. Pagan-Carlo. He took my vital signs and recommended that I get a stress test the following day. The test showed that my resting heart rate was fine but my stressed heart rate was abnormal. I went back to my cardiologist and he strongly advised me to get a coronary angiogram and potentially an angioplasty as well. I was asked then to make a decision and consent to the procedure. This is when I think the knowledge gained from working at the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation came into play. I wasn’t inclined to get any major heart procedure since I felt fine that day. But the symptoms and their potential consequences, which I had seen in a lot of communications materials at work, helped me decide that the smarter decision was to follow my cardiologist’s advice.

The recovery period was a huge learning experience for me. In cardiac rehab, I learned how to gradually regain my strength, to live a healthy lifestyle through good nutrition and stress management, to develop a way to cope with emotional challenges and appreciate the important things in life, like family and friends. The recovery and health improvements I have made to date validate all my effort and perseverance in changing my lifestyle.

 CardioSmartWinner
CardioSmart is the patient education and support program developed by the American College of Cardiology. Its mission is to engage, inform and empower patients to better prepare them to participate in their own care. In 2013, CardioSmart established the “I am CardioSmart” contest to find individuals who were living well with specific heart disease conditions: high blood pressure, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, previous heart attack or coronary artery disease, and showcase their stories to inspire other patients. www.cardiosmart.orgwww.facebook.com/CardioSmart.

For the “I am CardioSmart” contest they asked the public how well are you living with heart disease. The responses were overwhelming! Their expert panel chose one winner in the following categories: Heart Attack, High Blood Pressure, Heart Failure, Congenital Heart Defect and Coronary Artery Disease. The winner in each category received a $100 Amazon/iTune gift card and have their stories featured on CardioSmart.org.

ÁmateAhora, Voices for Health will post for the next five days their inspiring stories from each of the 4 winners and the grand prize winner—a trip for two to San Diego, CA. And speak at the American College of Cardiology.
