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.

#Bardarbunga #ashtag - Icelandic authorities remain on high alert as #Bárðarbunga volcano area experienced most serious earthquakes of week today. Seismologist quoted in Expressen.se says there's 50% chance of full-scale outbreak, one that that could match or exceed Eyjafjallajokull eruption of 2010; #ashtag

Icelandic authorities remain on high alert Friday afternoon U.S. time as some of the strongest earhquakes of the week have been measured within the past few hours, as the Bardarbunga volcano remains at serious risk of erupting. 
I first started following this story closely on Tuesday after a friend in Sweden emailed me a link to an article in Expressen.se quoting an experienced seismologist named Reynir Bödvarsson said that in his opinion, there's 50% chance of a full-scale outbreak that could match or exceed the Eyjafjallajokull eruption of 2010 that wreaked so much havoc with world travel and had economic consequences that people couldn't have imagined before they happened.
To say nothing of being stranded in another country with limited funds after your plane flight is cancelled, with no idea when you can get home.

Stor vulkan på Island riskerar kraftigt utbrott

While there are currently no signs of magma moving to the surface, within the poast 24 hours the Icelandic Met Office reported: 
"Intense earthquake activity continues at the Bárðarbunga volcano – a situation that has persisted since 16 August. There are no signs that the seismicity is decreasing."

It's Bárðarbunga in Icelandic.

As you check it out, keep in mind how late the sun is visible there this time of the year, where they are now 4 hours ahead of Eastern Daylight, where I am now.

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!✨ ������
