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.

#London2012 - The best photos of the Olympics. Breakthroughs in photographic technology lead to astounding detail in Olympic photos in London; Getty Images shows what innovative photo technology they're using in London to capture the magical moments

Wall Street Journal Digital Network video: The Best Photos of the London Olympics.
WSJ photo director Jack Van Antwerp speaks with George Stahl, Deputy Managing Editor of DJ Newswires about how the advancements in digital technology have allowed a scale of detail and context to converge at the London 2012 Olympics, of what used to be generic sports wire photos, that are nothing short of astounding. Van Antwerp showcases a photo of swimmer Michael Phelps shot by Gabriel Bouys of AFP/Getty Images as an example of this revolution, all the more remarkable because flash photography is prohibited at the swimming venue.

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
