Lento renacer de los Cayos de la Florida Key West

Para los residentes de Los Cayos de la Florida, la ansiedad por la espera del paso del huracan Irma no fue tan traumatica como lo esta siendo llevar sus vidas a un estado de normalidad, en medio de la destruccion y la consecuente desolacion del letal ciclon que cobro la vida de por lo menos nueve personas en ese territorio insular.

Alrededor de 30,000 personas fueron evacuadas de Los Cayos, como medida de prevencion, cifra que corresponde a casi la mitad de la poblacion total del territorio insular. Nueve muertos en el condado de Monroe, vecino de Miami-Dade, un numero que podria cercer mientras prosiguen las labores de busqueda entre los escombros.

Una semana despues que Irma abravesara el Estado del Sol, los habitantes de los Cayos regresaban lentamente el Sabado y Domingo para encontrar todo convertido en ruinas.

Se estima que el 25% de los hogares en Key West resultaron destruidos, un pueblo fantasma cuyos residentes apenas inician la compleja tarea de reconstruirlos con ayudas federales.

Biggest fight of the night...

 LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The big money continued rolling in just before fight time at this city's sports books, with several million-dollar bets on Floyd Mayweather Jr. to beat Conor McGregor.
Bookies had faced taking a big loss because McGregor tickets outnumbered Mayweather tickets by as much as 18-1 at some books. But the big bets started coming in Thursday on Mayweather and at the William Hill chain of sports books 74 percent of the money on straight bets was on Mayweather.

There were a handful of million-dollar bets on Mayweather, with three coming in just hours before the fight. The biggest reported bet on McGregor is $100,000.
Bookmakers say they still will post a big loss should McGregor beat Mayweather, especially if he stops him early. If Mayweather wins, though, it will be a big score by the sports books.

The sport will be boxing, and Mayweather, 40, is one of the most accomplished boxers ever. He is 49-0 with a dozen world titles in five weight classes. In the other corner will be a fighter not used to boxing out of corners. In fact, he hasn't boxed anybody since he was a teenager, and never professionally. McGregor, 29, is a two-time MMA champion and current Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight champion in a sport that includes kicking and body-slamming and occurs in an octagon-shaped cage.

The fight is expected to set records on pay-per-view, with some 5 million homes buying at $99.95.

LIVE: President Trump announces new Cuba policy changes from Miami Fl

President Trump announces new Cuba policy changes, however diplomatic relations will continue.

The new rules include the prohibition of financial transactions between Americans and Cuban companies affiliated with the country's military or intelligence services, according to a senior administration official who requested anonymity to discuss the changes ahead of the president's announcement.

Those changes are likely to have a significant effect on U.S. travelers because of the dominant role in the Cuban economy occupied by GAESA, a state run military-affiliated conglomerate.  Live from Manuel Artime Theatre in Miami Fl.

Audiences are cordially invited to the wedding of the year. I personally attended opening night and had a great time, I enjoyed it very much, it is absolutely hilarious and very entertaining, on stage until next week.

Direct from Broadway to Miami in years. The bride is Jewish, the groom is Catholic, her mother is a force of nature; his mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. But when the bride's ex-boyfriend shows up, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than one can whistle, "Here Comes the Bride,"

USA Today called this South Florida premiere "endearingly old-fashioned in spirit and decidedly contemporary in execution".

MiamiReviewNews called this Broadway premiere "Best Musical Cast Show"

Was Trump’s Syria Strike Illegal?

WASHINGTON- President Trump ordered the military on Thursday to carry out a missile
attack on Syrian forces for using chemical weapons against civilians. The unilateral attack
lacked authorization from Congress or from the United Nations Security Council, raising
the questions of whether he had legal authority to commit the act of war.

The strike raises two sets of legal issues. One involves international law and when it is lawful
for any nation to attack another. The other involves domestic law and who gets to decide-the president or Congress-Whether the United States should attack another country.

Did Trump have clear authority under international law to attack Syria?

No. The United Nations Charter, a treaty the United States has ratified, recognizes two
justifications for using force on another country's soil without its consent: the permission
of the Security council or a self-defense claim.

Republicans take over Washington

To understand Donald Trump's potential to be a truly consequential president, it's necessary to grasp a fundamental reality of American politics today. His fellow Republicans are not only the ascendant party in Washington, they are the dominant party nationwide and at the state level.

"There has been an extraordinary collapse of the Democratic Party," says political scientist Bill Galston, a former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton.

This means there is a natural well of support for Trump's conservative ideas across the country, more than Democratic insiders had expected. If congressional Republican unite behind Trump, this could give him grass-roots momentum to push his 'ludicrous' agenda and overcome objections from defenders of the status quo in the capital.

Additionally, I will say that if Obamacare is not simultaneously replaced when repealed, analysts are predicting bankruptcy of insurance companies and massive insurance bailouts within the first 6 months of repeal. Obvious to say that this is just the beginning of many issues facing our country in a total non-judicial government control by Republicans.

The Advice Frank Sinatra Had for George Michael in 1990

George Michael, the iconic singer-songwriter who began topping charts in the 1980s as part of the pop duo Wham!, died on Christmas Day of heart failure in his home.

Back in 1990, a 27-year-old Michael offered an interview to the Los Angeles Times' Calendar magazine in which he discussed his growing disillusionment with his international fame, as reported by The Mirror.

The interview resulted in a written response from none other than legendary singer/actor/Oscar-winner Frank Sinatra, then 74 years old, in a letter published by the newspaper.

"I don't understand a guy who lives 'in hopes of reducing the strain of his celebrity status,'" Sinatra wrote. "And now that he's a smash songwriter at 27 he wants to quit doing what tons of gifted youngsters all over the world would shoot grandma for - just one crack at what he's complaining about."

Sinatra, who himself became famous in his 20s when he joined Tommy Dorsey's chart-topping band in the 1940s before striking off on his own and cementing himself as a legendary figure in entertainment, also offered the young Michael a bit of advice.
"Come on, George. Loosen up. Swing, man," the veteran singer wrote. "Talent must not be wasted. Those who have it - and you obviously do or today's Calendar cover would have been about Rudy Vallee  - those who have talent must hug it, embrace it, nurture it and share it . . . Trust me. I've been there."
