Sean O’Hanlon Talks About Sustainability in Miami

In this clip from the #OnlyInMiami Show, Sean O’Hanlon talked about sustainability. Sean defines sustainability less as an environmental issue and more as a chance to implement best practices.

Sean O’Hanlon and Irela Bagué Talk About Sustainability – Only In Miami Show, Ep. 68

17 March 2015

Episode 68 of the #OnlyInMiami Show featured an interview with sustainability expert Sean O’Hanlon who talked about the challenges facing South Florida due to sea level rise. He also talked about power issues, including the vulnerability of the power grid in South Florida, and presented the concept of micro-grids as a solution to improve reliability.

Florida governor Rick Scott was also featured in a pre-recorded interview which was recorded at the announcement by Major League Baseball that Marlins Park would host the 2017 All-Star Game. In light of the recent allegations of pressure the Scott administration applied to oust the former director of the FDLE, Grant asked if the governor would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations. Predictably, Governor Scott sidestepped the issue and declined to answer the question.

We were also joined by Irela Bagué, the chair of the Sustainability, Environment, and Energy committee of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. She talked about daily impacts that can be felt from the failure to address environmental concerns. She also talked about some of the changes that might need to take place to sustain our community for the future.

In the second hour, Grant was joined by Karla Campos. They talked about Sunday’s Calle Ocho festival, which is one of the largest block parties in the country. If you missed the fun, you can view some photos of the event here.

Finally, Drastic Fanatic joined the show to talk sports, including the impacts that might be felt in the AFC East due to all of the recent NFL free agent transactions. He and Grant also talked about the playoff possibilities for the Miami Heat and whether the Heat need to add any pieces to the roster for next season to compete again for an NBA title.

Big Weekend #OnlyInMiami: ePrix, Medical Marijuana Benefit, and Calle Ocho

13 March 2015

Big Weekend #OnlyInMiami: ePrix, Medical Marijuana Benefit, and Calle Ocho

It’s a big weekend of events in Miami. Here are some highlights:

Miami ePrix

In the 1980s, the city streets of Miami hosted a number of auto races. However, with the construction of the Homestead Miami Speedway, the races travelled south out of the city of Miami.  However, auto racing is returning to the streets of downtown Miami on Saturday, March 14 with the inaugural presentation of the Miami ePrix, a motorsports race featuring Indy-style race cars. The twist is that the cars are powered by electricity instead of gasoline. Bea Garcia of race-sponsor DHL stopped by the show to talk about the race and how it works. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit miami.fiaformulae.com/

17th Annual Medical Marijuana Benefit at Grand Central

In the past election, Amendment 2 would have amended the Florida Constitution to legalize marijuana use for medicinal purposes. While it received 58% of the vote, it failed to reach to 60% needed to pass. However, the push to legalize medical marijuana continues. Flash from Ploppy Palace Productions stopped by the show to talk about the 17th Annual Medical Marijuana Benefit event taking place Saturday, March 14. The event will feature live music, special speakers, and live art demonstrations. There will also be political action activities, including a signature drive for the petition to include a referendum on the 2016 ballot that would legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes. There will be a voter registration drive as well. For more information and to purchase discounted advance tickets, visit www.ploppypalace.com.

Calle Ocho Festival

The largest block party in Miami (and maybe the country), the Calle Ocho festival, happens this Sunday in Little Havana. In this clip from the #OnlyInMiami show, Tony Lorenzo talks about the festival sponsored by the Kiwanis of Little Havana. The event features music and food, and is a fundraiser for the year-round activities of the Kiwanis, which include full scholarships for deserving college students and summer camps for children, among others.

Just compare her thoughtful, reasoned commencement address to Mr. #TrumpRussia's pity party. #SallyYatesIsAPatriot mobile.nytimes.com/2017/05/24/us/…

This #Montana Republican jerk spent $6 million bucks and he just assaulted a reporter. Americans can't vote for him occupydemocrats.com/2017/05/24/fox…
