#PonleAcento | Adrián González debuts MLB Jersey with proper last name spelling

After 16 years in the big leagues Gold Glove Dodger’s first basemen Adrián González stepped up to the plate with his last name properly spelled for the first time during Monday’s (5/9/16) home game at Dodger Stadium. González has added an accent mark to the “a” in his last name and in an effort to inspire other Latinos within the MLB to do the same González challenged teammate Kiké Hernández prior to the game. Hernández has also joined González and was debuting a new jersey inspired by #PonleAcento.

González may have taken one of the first steps to create this movement but now he invites other Latino MLB players to join the #PonleAcento movement. Let us know if you can share this on your blog and or social media!

Below is the official Tweet Adrián González posted yesterday:

@Thisfunktional attends THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER VIP Event

A Magical Night Filled with Wizards and Celebs for “THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER”

Written by Jesus Figueroa

“The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” finally opened at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 7, but on April 5 VIPs were allowed to preview the rides and the streets of Hogsmeade.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti welcomed all the Mugles to “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” and helped in presenting a magical performance by legendary conductor John Williams and the LA Philharmonic.

A fantastic light show on the walls of Hogwarts accompanied the opening ceremonies with a spectacular show that ended with a fireworks display.

Mayor Garcetti ended his speech with a short ending in Spanish in which he tried a spell to help the traffic in Los Angeles.

The red carpet was set and actors, musicians and executives walked the red carpet to “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.”

The area is detailed with the land’s signature ride, “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey,” and the family outdoor coaster, “Flight of the Hippogriff.”

“The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” opened on April 7 to the public.

Universal City, California, August 25, 2015 –Universal Pictures Home Entertainment (UPHE) is leveraging Waze (http://www.waze.com), the real-time crowd sourced navigation app, to promote the home entertainment release of global blockbuster Furious 7. “Get your Furious 7 Fix Fast” is a first-of-its-kind promotion that will allow Waze users in seven cities to find Prizing Pit Stops giving away free Furious 7 merchandise. UPHE will release Furious 7 on Digital HD starting today and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on September 15.

From today through September 17, Waze will display scheduled messages announcing the release of Furious 7 on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD in seven participating markets. On one day in each market, Waze users can also find directions to pop-up venues where street teams will be distributing free Furious 7 branded T-shirts, hats, license-plate frames, and a limited number of digital codes to download the film on Digital HD, among other items. Each Prizing Pit Stop will operate while supplies last for up to 90 minutes and then move on to two other spots throughout the day.

Prizing Pit Stops will take place on the following days:

Friday, Sept 11:  Portland & Dallas

Monday, Sept 14: San Francisco & Washington, D.C.

Tuesday, Sept 15: New York & Los Angeles

Thursday, Sept 17: Chicago

The promotion, which marks the first time Waze has partnered with a home entertainment distributor, will be supported by local cable and radio mentions in the participating markets and through Waze’s social media posts.

“We’re excited to team with Waze, one of the top navigation apps, to excite fans for the release of Furious 7,” said John Morici, UPHE Managing Director, US & Canada. “This is an innovative promotion that uniquely engages audiences with an app that has become indispensable to millions of commuters.”

About Furious 7

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast across the globe in the Extended Edition of their most gravity-defying and emotional adventure yet. Targeted by a cold-blooded black-ops assassin with a score to settle (Jason Statham), their only hope is to get behind the wheel again and secure an ingenious prototype tracking device. Facing their greatest threat yet in places as far away as Abu Dhabi and as familiar as the Los Angeles streets they call home, the crew must come together once again as a team, and as a family, to protect their own.
