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.

TV4 Sweden's take on NASA's future after the shuttle program; models of future space vehicles you DIDN'T see on Miami TV newscasts -Orion


TV4.se Nyheterna newscast video: Nästa steg för USA:s rymdprogram.
TV4 Sweden's correspondent Elizabet Frerot discusses NASA's future after the space shuttle program with NASA astronauts and officials. May 16, 2011.

As I was watching Endeavour take off this morning via TV, no doubt like many of you out there, I was wondering, after 30 years of the space shuttle, what's next for our amerikanska rymdfärjeprogram with President Obama and his successors?

Fortunately, while local Miami TV stations were pondering dollops of trivialities, TV4 correspondent Elizabet Frerot was in the right place to ask the right people -the Kennedy Space Center, where NASA astronaut Nicholas Patrick and official Allard Bentel reminisce and ponder NASA's next step into deeper outer space with Lockheed Martin's Orion.

Orion Pictures sure cranked-out some great films while it existed!

The best? Dances with Wolves

And thus I have connected outer space, Sweden and Kevin Costner to the shores of the Sunshine State in four short moves.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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 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. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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