“Paralyzed Veterans of America is grateful for this opportunity to share its mission for veterans with American families across the nation,” said National President David Zurfluh. “Waffle House is a family tradition, and we are hopeful this outreach will inspire more dedicated supporters of our Mission: ABLE campaign, which strives to provide severely wounded veterans with access to what they’ve earned and deserve: Care, Jobs & Benefits. We thank Richard ‘The King’ Petty himself, for the ongoing support of these efforts, and we welcome Waffle House to the Paralyzed Veterans’ family.”

This campaign kicked off at a special event at the Waffle House in Sandstone, VA (just outside of Richmond) on Friday, September 8th. “It’s an honor for Waffle House to partner with Paralyzed Veterans of America,” said Walt Ehmer, Waffle House President and CEO. “We salute all those who have sacrificed so much for our country, and we are proud to be giving back to those who paid such a heavy price to preserve our freedom.”

Richard Petty, who attended the Virginia kickoff event, added, “Our relationship with Paralyzed Veterans of America is the heart of our dedication to this country’s best and bravest. We continue to strive to introduce its mission to other partners who want to show the same grateful return to the men and women who have sacrificed for our freedom.”

The campaign will run from Patriot Day on September 11 to Veterans Day on November 11, 2017. Waffle House customers, and all who want to support Paralyzed Veterans, are encouraged to visit pva.org/wafflehouse to give to the mission of ensuring disabled veterans are ABLE to have quality health care, life-sustaining jobs, and the VA benefits they’ve earned in return for their sacrifice to our country.

How are you celebrating National Orgasm Day?

Published

on

SAN JUAN (Puerto Rico) – National Orgasm Day is celebrated today!

In several countries that include the U.S., U.K., and Australia, people are celebrating having orgasm — alone or with partners. The National Orgasm Day was originally celebrated in Brazil, although their official day is in August.

According to a survey of 2,000 participants, Durex found that only 15% of women orgasm every time they have sex. This is compared 56% of men, making men four times more likely to orgasm during sex.



Here are some fun facts about orgasms that you should know about: (Glamour.com)

1. People who smoke weed have more orgasms. Like, way more. Pot smokers surveyed were 109 percent more likely to have multiple orgasms.

2. Being politically active pays off. People who are more passionate about politics have more multiple orgasms and more orgasms in general.

3. Faking orgasms isn’t something just women do. 37 percent of men in Match’s survey said they’d faked orgasms before. The most common reasons they cited were because they weren’t enjoying sex anymore because they wanted to “show their partner that they loved them” and because they were too drunk to finish. The first two reasons were also top ones for women, and boosting partners’ self-esteem was also a big one for us.

4. Our parents are getting off more than us. Millennials have 12 percent fewer orgasms than boomers. Womp-womp.

5. Redheads have it best. We will not attempt to explain why, but for whatever reason, single women with red hair have the most orgasms, followed by blondes.

6. Miami is the place to get off. 60 percent of singles in the 305 orgasm during 90 to 100 percent of their sexual encounters.

7. Tech nerds are doing something right. Despite what stereotypes might lead you to believe, people working in computers and electronics have more orgasms than any other profession.

8. Emoji flirting is good for your sex life. Women who use the lips and kissing emoji have more orgasms with their partners…so it may be time to ramp up the sexting.

Alfa Rock closes after 39 years

Published

on

SAN JUAN (Puerto Rico Buzz) – After 39 years of playing mostly rock music in Puerto Rico, 105.7 FM Alfa Rock is signing off.

The radio station was sold to a Christian music outlet for $2.9 million.

 

“BROADCASTING & PROGRAMMING SYSTEMS OF PUERTO RICO, INC. is selling Rock WCAD (ALFA ROCK 106)/SAN JUAN and its boosters in FAJARDO and JUANA DIAZ, PR to EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION for $2.9 million,” said All Access Music Group, a music news website.

“Welcome to the new times,” said Alfa Rock on their Facebook site.

***UPDATE*** A reader tells the Puerto Rico Buzz that she called the radio station for a giveaway. Allegedly, the advertisers were attempting to defraud listeners by making them believe they had won a travel vacation package. The reader indicates that when she called Alfa Rock, she allegedly was harassed. There was a verbal exchange over the phone. The reader says that they called her number several times and would hang up.  The reader never received the prize and would have had to pay a large sum in order to receive it. This incident happened some time ago, said the reader. This leads us to believe that the economic problems at the radio station were too high to overcome. 

In the end, Jesus saves!

Fans of the radio station have expressed mostly sadness after hearing the news.
