Sasha Crewsberkowitz, a student at Miami Arts Charter School, knows a few things about the Holocaust -- especially since she played Anne Frank in a performance. This week she learned some more from Holocaust survivor and world-renowned violinist Samuel Marder.
He spoke to middle- and high-school students at Miami Arts about the consequences of prejudice and bullying.
Retired soccer superstar David Beckham announced Wednesday at the Perez Art Museum Miami that he will establish a Major League Soccer franchise in the city. After the sport folded in South Florida in 2001, Beckham will bring back a new team and a new stadium.
This week’s Colombian voter poll had to feel like a back-handed compliment for President Juan Manuel Santos.
The new survey by the Bogotá research firm Ipsos-Napoleón Franco shows Santos with a 17-point lead over his closest competitor in his bid to win re-election in May. But Santos garners just 25 percent of the vote. Half of those polled said they were undecided or intend to cast a blank protest ballot. That’s hardly cause for cumbia dancing at the Casa de Nariño presidential palace.

The event was organized by Roots of Hope, a network of young professionals working to “empower Cuba’s youth.”
A bank probably is not among the places you'd think of to see contemporary art. The traditional brick-and-mortar corner bank is more of a generic space with the usual teller windows, cubicles and offices. But St. Petersburg-based C1 Bank has turned the established bank space inside out for its first branch in South Florida.
It's the first financial institution to open the Wynwood Arts District of Miami -- the neighborhood better known for its street art than safety-deposit boxes.
Not Bette Davis' Baby Jane, that horrifying child star turned cosmetically challenged psychopath, but the young model known throughout the 1960s as 'Baby Jane' Holzer. The Palm Beach native -- and her role as artist Andy Warhol's friend, confidante and collaborator -- is the focus of an exhibit now showing at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach.
Arrests in New York and Florida in late January indicate the global virtual currency Bitcoin has the attention of federal prosecutors: A top executive with a Bitcoin trade organization was one of those charged. The second man arrested was Robert Faiella, at his home in Cape Coral.
Faiella was charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering and operating an unlicensed money exchange business. They are accused of helping push money through the online drug marketplace Silk Road.
The 95 Express Project has gotten traffic moving. Sometimes, arguably, moving too well.
FDOT numbers show that the average speed of express lane traffic during the majority of the day is between 64 and 66 MPH. That means the “average” car during those times is speeding by as much as 11 MPH.
The speed limit, which is the same for both the express lanes and the general purpose lanes, is either 55 MPH or 60 MPH depending on where you are.
