Lying on the Beach On Camera with Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess

On June 24th— we were all shocked to learn that a condo tower in Surfside, Florida had collapsed overnight.

We have since learned that 97 Residents died in that collapse.

It was tragedy that not only stunned South Florida— it’s stunned the nation.

AND it’s left many of us wondering “is our building safe?” “Are we next?” “Should we continue to live in a high rise?”

Lying On The Beach’s Lois Whitman Hess and Steve Greenberg talk with Jonathan McClintock about this issue.

Jonathan is a District Manager for KW Property Management & Consulting.

He oversees 14 Luxury Hi-Rise Condominium Buildings in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties — including one building in Surfside.

Jonathan talks about the structural fears of Hi-Rise living and what can residents do to insure our buildings are safe.

David Chesky is an American pianist, composer, producer , arranger, and co-founder of the independent, audiophile label Chesky Records. He is also co-founder and CEO of HDtracks, an online music store that sells high-resolution digital music.

David Chesky has won Independent Music Awards and received Grammy Award nominations. He has written jazz tunes, orchestral and chamber music, opera, ballet, and a rap symphony.

We are talking to David today because he composed an opera for children that teaches about the absurdity of war and acceptance of cultural diversity while exposing them to classical music. It’s called “The Mice War.” David also turned the opera into an animated movie and a soon to be produced children’s book.

“The Mice War” is about industrious Blue Mice that live in the North and the passive Red Mice that live on an Island way in the south.

The Blue Mice need to make more money so they decide they need to have a war.

The reason for the war?

The Blue Mice eat blue cheese and the Red Mice eat yellow cheese.

What would happen if the Red Mice came and made the Blue Mice eat yellow Cheese?

Welcome David.

Dr. Yaffe is not saying this is the cure all, but he does want the research labs to do deep investigation on the drug.

What is it? You will just have to listen to the podcast to find out.

Dr. Yaffe is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. His practice has been a fixture for patients on the Upper East Side for more than two decades.
