Nov 30, 2017

Thusday on Sundial:  Nursing homes in Florida have been in the national spotlight due to the tragedy at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, where 12 patients died as result of a power outage caused by Hurricane Irma.  

The next Florida legislative session is quickly approaching and on file are numerous bills that address many issues regarding nursing homes. The Sun Sentinel’s Dan Sweeney, who covers the  Legislature and statewide political issues, joins the program to talk about the future of standards and practices in assisted-living facilities in the state.

Miami Art Week is almost upon us here in the Magic City. It attracts locals and tourists, all of whom want to share in the festivities and go to fairs and museums. The Institute of Contemporary Art is Miami’s newest museum.

Wealthy art collectors also display their art in so-called public-art collections. These are privately-owned museum-quality exhibitions.  Art journalist Brett Sokol helps us understand more about this phenomenon, as Miami readies for Art Week.

Move over Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme. Located in Wynwood, The Salty Donut has cemented its spot as one of the most beloved gastronomic destinations in South Florida to get coffee and donuts. Demand is high, long lines are usual and customers wait patiently to grab a bite of their donuts.

Owner Amanda Pizzaro was named Forbes 30 under 30 in the food/restaurant category for the meteoric success of her shop. She joined us in the program to talk about her achievements, Forbes’ honor -- and donuts!
