Felipe Valls Sr., founder of iconic restaurant central to Miami’s Cuban community, dies at 89


Cuban businessman Felipe Valls Sr., founder of the iconic Versailles restaurant in Miami, Florida, died Saturday, his granddaughter, Nicole Valls confirmed to CNN. He was 89 years old.

Nicole Valls did not provide further details on her grandfather’s death, but said the family’s spokespeople were expected to provide more information at a later time.

After Valls opened his restaurant on Miami’s emblematic Calle Ocho 51 years ago, it became a vital gathering place for exiled Cubans who could congregate over flaky guava pastelitos and other familiar dishes.

The landmark spot in the city’s Little Havana neighborhood is still a usual point of concentration for activists and members of the Cuban community in South Florida. It also serves as a meeting point for demonstrations on political issues involving the island.

Miami Major Francis Suarez mourned Valls’ loss on Saturday, describing the businessman as “an extraordinary human being who served his family, his beloved Miami, and the freedom of Cuba with supreme devotion.”

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said in a tweet Valls was “the true embodiment of the American dream.”

“As a leader, philanthropist and brilliant businessman, he shaped (Versailles) into the pulse of our community for over five decades,” the major wrote.

Media outlets, including CNN, have visited Versailles over the years to gauge the opinions of the Cuban community on various issues and

The reason why it is no longer recommended to drink two liters of water a day

Is drinking two liters of water a day a myth or a reality? According to a new study published in the journal ‘Science‘, science has never supported the idea of ​​eight glasses of water (two liters) as a proper guideline.

Thus ends with the idea that you have to drink two liters of water a day to meet the daily needs of the human body. However, this new study reveals that there is a wide range of amounts of water depending on the needs of each person.

Dale Schoeller, a professor emeritus of nutrition at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) who participated in the research, has spent years studying water and metabolism. “Total water turnover with water from beverages and a lot of your water comes from the food you eat,” he said.

An investigation with more than 5,600 people

Schoeller believes this work is the best they have done so far to measure the amount of water people actually consume on a daily basis taking into account the turnover of water in and out of the body.

To do this, water renewal was measured in more than 5,600 people from 26 countries and aged between 8 and 96 years old. Thus, daily averages were found that oscillated between 1 liter and 6 liters per day. Even with outliers as high as 10 liters per day.

This study differs from previous ones in that, to carry it out, people were randomly selected, while the others used
