Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

Obamacare precursor: Pregnant Scot with H1N1 goes to Sweden due to NHS' lack of proper facilities

So, speaking of a national health care plan...
please click Fri 24 July News at Noon Part 2,
and see the reality of the current NHS

This topic starts at 4:10, following news re
Norwich North by-election won by Conservative
Chloe Smith, now the youngest MP, who received
twice as many votes as her Labour opponent,
Ostrowski, who was, himself, selected by the party
to replace popular Labour MP Ian Gibson,
who was embroiled in the Expenses scandal
as a result of letting his daughter stay at a home,
rent-free, that U.K. taxpayers were actually paying

And for good measure, substitute candidate
Ostrowski caught Swine Flu, and was unable
to campaign the last few days!
When it rains, it pours!

The bigger story is the completely inadequate number
of intensive care beds in the U.K. for victims of H1N1
-esp. units for children- and most particularly in the
SE and SW of England, as well as in the Midlands.

And the National Pandemic Flu Service website was
crashing just hours after being put up, after 100,000
people in the U.K. reported symptoms last week,
twice the number of the previous week.

If you let the segment roll on, you'll come to the
very well-produced report from the previous night,
including comparisons to the flu of 1969,
before anti-virals were available, that resulted in
30,000 deaths in the U.K.

To see their take on Obama's health care plan
and the ads using British doctors and patients
complaining about care under the NHS.

After seeing it, perhaps you'll better appreciate
why I try to watch Channel Four everyday,
or catch up on segments I missed on rainy Saturdays
like this past weekend, when I thought that I'd
be down on South Beach with some friends,
instead of staring at my computer and listening
to the Cards-Phillies game in the background,
after my friends canceled our plans.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
