Miami Heat

Edward Flattau | May 25, 2016 | Green
The University of Miami's comprehensive exercise provides a template for environmental protection. Should elected officials fail to lead, why not have academia step into the breach and through well-publicized research, embarrass dawdling politicians to get off their duff? Hopefully, that is just what will happen as a consequence of the University of Miami's report.

Panama Papers Confirm Miami a Disneyland for Fraud

J.J. Colagrande | May 19, 2016 | Miami
Cranes line Miami's skyline, not wrecking balls. Even as one of the hardest hit cities during the foreclosure crisis, building condos in Miami's emerging Downtown and Brickell corridors continued at a rapid pace. Yet it is strange. Half of every completed complex marking Miami's skyline appears half-empty....

Wolfson Campus Might Be Miami's Greatest Hope

J.J. Colagrande | May 17, 2016 | Miami
Most people in Miami might not realize the importance of Miami Dade College's Wolfson Campus. In addition to being a bustling urban campus with 40,000 students enrolled, it is of course the administrative hub of the whole college wide system overseeing eight other campuses and 136,000 students, making the school...

Trust and Co. Miami

Amber Love Bond | May 12, 2016 | Miami
Coral Gables is known for its food, in fact it topped's nationwide "10 Best Foodie Cities" list in 2015, so it's no surprise that there's always something new and exciting to try. It's hard to keep track of all the yumminess in the Gables which is why many may have missed the opening of Trust and Co. back in January.

How I Learned to Be Proud of Having Mexican Immigrant Parents

Alvaro Huerta, Ph.D. | May 11, 2016 | Latino Voices
While I will never forgive myself for not giving my parents credit for motivating me to pursue higher education, growing up in a society where brown people are scapegoats for America's failures, it makes sense that I would feel embarrassed about my Mexican roots and working-class background.

I Left My Boyfriend to Follow My Dreams

Shannon Ullman | May 5, 2016 | Women
Looking back on my decision to leave, I wouldn't change a thing. It made us better partners, fostering trust and appreciation. To be honest, our relationship has flourished because of the time spent apart and continues to reflect that to this day, nearly a year since we reunited.

Shuckers Bar and Grill Miami

Ayana Malaika Crichlow | May 3, 2016 | Miami
Nestled behind the Best Western Hotel in North Bay Village Miami is the chillest spot on the water. Shuckers Bar and Grill was brought to my attention by my comrade in food explorations, Roxy. She had told me a few weeks before that I had to check out this restaurant on the water, the food was great and the view was amazing, and child, she didn't need to say anymore. I was going, no ifs, ands or buts about it.

Friday Food Trucks Invasion Miami

Ayana Malaika Crichlow | May 2, 2016 | Miami
I had been meaning to check out the Friday Food Truck show at the Progressive headquarters on Old Cutler in Miami for a while now, but I was always working and never got a chance to. It's the first Friday of every month and this first Friday in April, I was off from work, and I was in full attendance with only child. She actually wanted to go, can you believe it?

Prince: A Lifelong Rebel in Music, Style and Societal Expectations

Olympia Duhart | April 27, 2016 | Black Voices
Much like his ability to seamlessly blend rock, funk, and R&B in his music, Prince had the ability to bring together audiences of different groups. Each time I went to a Prince concert, I was joined by rockers, college kids, middle-aged moms and black men in purple fedoras.

Avoiding Accidents in the Florida Rain

Stephanie R. Caudle | April 27, 2016 | Miami
Florida is one of the rainiest states in the nation. Although the rain keeps things green and growing, and is often a much-welcome relief from the heat, it can create a hazard for drivers.

Cuba: The Collapse

Yoani Sanchez | April 26, 2016 | World
Raul Castro erupts in fury at a press conference when asked about the existence of political prisoners in Cuba, he gets entangled in his earphones and comes out with some rigmarole a few feet from Barack Obama, who looks like the owner and master of the situation.
