Thanks to hurricanes, heat and red-hot home prices, the state’s population growth hit its lowest rate since 2014 during the pandemic.
David Gewirtz never got used to the heat, even after 15 years in Florida.
Still, Mr. Gewirtz, who grew up in New Jersey, and his wife, Denise Amrich, liked their adopted hometown of Palm Bay, Fla., and probably would have stayed if it weren’t for the “brutal” hurricanes.
“Staring at those tracker maps for weeks before a hurricane hits starts to create a stress level,” said Mr. Gewirtz, a technology columnist in his early 50s. “It’s three weeks of wondering whether you’re going to have a house at the end.”
The couple evacuated their home in the path of 2017’s Hurricane Irma, kept driving until they got to Oregon and decided to stay.
The Bucs QB spoke to CBS’ James Corden about all things Super Bowl
Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is still celebrating Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl win over the Kansas City Chiefs. A few weeks removed from the game and parade, we are now finding out more about what was going through his mind when he tossed the Lombardi Trophy off a boat and whether there was more to him stumbling than just sea legs. The QB went on CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” to discuss it all.

Meet Nemesis, one of the many endangered great hammerhead sharks that spends her winters in Bimini, The Bahamas. This interactive 3D project was a close collaboration between Angela Rosenberg, President of ANGARI Foundation and Captain of R/V ANGARI, Duncan Irschick, Professor at UMass Amherst and Director of Digital Life with CG artist Jeremy Bot and Casey Sapp, CEO of VRTUL.
Footage was collected during R/V ANGARI’s Expedition 33 in Bimini with Casey Sapp’s custom underwater multi-camera system to collect views of Nemesis swimming from all angles. The videos provided Digital Life modelers with the necessary imagery and data to create a high resolution and accurate animated 3D model.
The completed interactive 3D shark model is part of Digital Life’s “ark” of living organisms, which serves as an invaluable resource for educators, scientists and conservationists.
This work would not have been possible without the financial and field support of several donors.
This is the next-gen floating house by Miami-based Arkup that promotes “avant-garde life on the water.” Equipped with electric propulsion and four hydraulic spuds, Arkup’s houseboat can actually lift itself out of the water – thanks to its customized self-lifting barge and it’s totally stable at anchor.
