The 30-some pictures set at Dolphin Mall are of natural life: a small, gray bird drinking from a fountain. A yellow fire hydrant. Sunset in Miami. And close-ups of different roses, some closed and others in full bloom.
But the simple things tell a more complex story. It is one that weaves the wonders of science with the curiosity of youths born with five fingers, five toes and the virus that causes AIDS.

An increasing number of Haitians living in the rural Central Plateau region will soon be able to access healthcare with help from a Miami-based group.
The Green Family Foundation, a philanthropic organization that supports health programs locally and in Haiti, says it is committing an additional $2.4 million over the next five years to fund community health programs in rural Haiti as part of its expanding global health initiative.
The foundation, led by Miami Beach documentarian Kimberly Green, made the announcement this week during former President Bill Clinton's third annual Clinton Global Initiative in New York. The event brought together more 1,300 world leaders in business and healthcare as well as heads of state including Haiti President René Préval.
"More people will have access to healthcare, more will have access to drugs and there will be more treatment of TB, Malaria and HIV," Green said.

Some South Florida Schools Help Train Future Entrepreneurs
MIAMI -- According to business experts, entrepreneurship is the heart of the U.S. economy. There are nearly 26 million companies in the U.S. and about 97 percent have fewer than 20 employees.
That's why some South Florida schools have recognized the need to teach students how to become entrepreneurs. Michael Perez, 15, is a sophomore at John A. Ferguson Senior High in Kendall. He is also the president of Tail Times, a business he created through the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship or NFTE.
