Expanding 836 Highway Would be a Big — and Destructive — Step Backward

GUEST EDITORIAL / OP-ED Expanding 836 Highway Would be a Big — and Destructive — Step Backward Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s desire to alleviate traffic congestion in West Kendall is understandable. His attack on those raising concerns is not. The opposition to the extension of the 836 highway outside of…


Making Sense of Celebrity Suicides

Guest Editorial / Op-Ed Celebrity suicides take our breath away, in part because we conflate recognition and happiness.

And so we struggle to…

13 Reasons Why On Netflix Could Encourage Suicidal Ideation

Guest Editorial – OP/ED FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, Fla. –In March, Netflix premiered 13 Reasons Why.

How (if ever) can Democrats reoccupy the White house?

Guest Editorial – OP/ED FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, Fla. – The first several months of Donald Trump’s presidency have been riddled with poor decisions, false starts, and miscalculations.

Keep College Campuses Safer, NO GUNS! – Guest Editorial

Guest Editorial/Op-Ed   Fort Lauderdale/Davie, Fla. – It’s the greatest fear any educational leader has – a shooting on campus.

A Peacebuilding Response to the Rise of “Trumpism”

GUEST EDITORIAL – OP/ED   This is a presidential election cycle like we’ve never seen before. One person – Donald Trump – has ascended the ranks of his party not by calling for unity and focusing on what brings us together, but by espousing racism, incivility and divisiveness. Critics of…


INTOLERANCE IS TO BLAME

GUEST EDITORIAL – OP/ED   FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, Fla. – The Orlando nightclub shooting was an act of terrorism committed by an Islamic extremist. To argue anything to the contrary is lunacy.
