March has been a busy month. Some great things have been in the news that make us smile for the good things folks are doing.
Following Edgar Scissorhands making his Super Cruise debut at the Super Bowl, Cadillac invited the Jonas Brothers, Tiffany Haddish, Sofia Vergara, Joe Manganiello and tWitch and Allison Boss to experience the technology for the first time. Their experiences were captured as curiosity turned to freedom when they took their hands off the wheel, let the vehicle navigate the road and tried the Lane Change on Demand functionality.
Super Cruise uses real-time cameras, sensors and GPS, paired with LiDAR map data and a driver awareness system to provide drivers a greater sense of confidence when travelling hands-free on enabled roads.
In Manhattan, La Pera Projects is exclusively partnering with NeueHouse Madison Square to launch its first Arts Program called “Transitions” until April 16th with the aim to support and showcase international emergent talent from New York. The one-month artists’ residency will culminate with a three-week exhibition of the works created at the studios provided by NeueHouse. Framed under the idea of transition, the curatorial theme is an attempt to materialize and reflect the current times we live in from the angle of the infinite possibilities brought by creativity.
Alongside the work of guest curator Edoardo Cozzani (Italy), La Pera Projects will present artists Kyoko Hamaguchi (Japan), Jean Oh (USA), and Johanna Strobel (Germany), all in a joint conversation revolving around the concept of transition through the lens of creativity.

Another highlight was Ticket2Events #funinthesun experience for Bravo Dallas Housewives in Delray Beach. Producers Sean Koski and Brian Kelly of Ticket2Events, created a sharable event at The Seagate Hotel & Spa in Florida with hosts LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra, who traveled safely for the day.
To kick off their adventure the gals, with Steamline luggage in tow and PlaneAire sanitizer in hand, showcased how to complete a germ free flight to Delray Beach, FL. The #funinthesun for LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra seemed to continue effortlessly for days and with nods to Hydralyte the electrolyte powder that rehydrates faster than water.
