    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Big names with big influence are part of a climate conference this week in Miami Beach. “This is God‘s creation and what are we doing,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Another prominent attendee is Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava who said the issues being discussed are especially important to South Florida “We are ground zero for climate change and sea-level rise, it’s totally fitting that Aspen would come to Miami Beach,“ said Levine Cava. The goal of the event isn’t just to talk about the problem but to come up with solutions. Native American Cheyenne Kippenberger, a member of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and former Miss Indian World, said she’s seen the impact of climate change firsthand. “We’ve seen the Everglades be neglected and poisoned and it’s polluted. I’ve seen development take over the place I called home and more than anything it’s changed every relationship...
    MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has made energy independence more important than ever during a climate conference in South Florida on Monday. Pelosi said during the opening session of the Aspen Ideas: Climate 2022 in Miami Beach that the House has already passed legislation to combat climate change, and they continue to work with the Senate to gain bipartisan support. “We have all the reason in the world to do this,” Pelosi said. “It’s hard to understand why there are obstacles to it.” Pelosi, who visited Ukraine earlier this month, said climate change has always been an issue of health, economics and security, and she pointed out that nations that have bought oil from Russia, including the U.S. and some European countries, have effectively funded the attack on Ukraine. “The fact is that people can’t get away with that kind of behavior, and they cannot be financed in doing it by our dependence on fossil fuels in their country,” Pelosi said. The city of Miami Beach and the Aspen Institute...
    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Grand Prix was hot, from the party scene to the weather, but it faced nearly impossible expectations. The celebrity watching was top level, certainly for a motorsports event. There was Paris Hilton, using a portable fan to cool herself as she danced in front of the McLaren garage on race day. Serena and Venus Williams holding hands as they navigated the pre-race grid in summer dresses. Bad Bunny, the Puerto Rican entertainment icon, making a flashy entrance in an all-pink suit while hanging with Sergio Perez, Red Bull’s Mexican driver. There were tons of bells and whistles, too, from food halls, art installations, hammocks, chaise lounges to cabanas and a man-made beach. But did Formula One’s debut in this sleek, cosmopolitan city measure up as a good event? That all depends on personal expectations. The expectations were so high, after all. F1 wants to tap into the rich North American sponsorship market as the series’ popularity has swelled over the last three years. The United States was given two F1 races...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Formula 1 pictured a race in Miami and envisioned sun, sand, beaches and boats. So, when the inaugural Miami Grand Prix landed at Hard Rock Stadium, nowhere near the South Beach backdrop F1 was seeking, the promoter said don’t worry.

They built a fake marina. With fake water, and all. Well, it’s not really water at all in The Mia Marina, located between turns 4 and 6 at the purpose-built venue around the Miami Dolphins’ stadium. It can be found at the corner of NW 27th Ave. and NW 199th St. in Miami Gardens, a land-locked neighborhood some 15 miles away from F1’s initial desired downtown location. It isn’t exactly Monaco, but the man-made marina is a 25,000-square-foot dry dock designed to look like water. The 10 yachts are real — one appeared to be booked by Michael Mak, the local founder of Celebrity Sports Entertainment; one waved the British flag;...
    Sky Sports' Martin Brundle had a moment to forget as he hilariously mixed up NFL star Patrick Mahomes with a 19-year-old basketball player at the Miami Grand Prix. Brundle, 62, is well known for walks along the grid preceding Formula 1 races, interviewing drivers and team bosses, but the inaugural race in Miami attracted a host of high-profile names.  The commentator, who's been covering F1 since 1997, ended up confusing 2020 Super Bowl champion and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Mahomes with Duke Blue Devils basketball star and NBA hopeful Paolo Banchero - but the pair saw the funny side.  Trackside reporter Brundle spoke to several A-list celebrities at Sunday's showpiece, including former First Lady Michelle Obama, David Beckham, Venus and Serena Williams, DJ Khaled and Pharrell Williams.  Brundle thought he had bumped into another household name in Mahomes, after chasing him and yelling out 'Patrick'. He eventually managed to get to his target, asking him about the atmosphere at the event, which was being attended by around 250,000 people. He replied: 'This is crazy. I've never been to an F1 race...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – It is described as the most anticipated see-and-be-seen sporting event this year and we’re not talking about the Super Bowl. It’s the inaugural Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix which roars into Miami this weekend. Promoters have turned the event around the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens into an exclusive three-day party that will be a collision of celebrities, the ultra-rich and the hottest motorsports property on the globe.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix is quickly racing its way to Miami and as we approach the highly anticipated weekend, police presence is picking up in the area.

He says, there’s one thing that takes precedence over having a good time. “Our goal at every event is safety for the community, safety for the public, the businesses within the area, and everyone attending the event.” Arengo says they’re expecting 85,000 people at the race each day.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Moms and dads know having a child can be expensive. As many families struggle with rising food and housing costs, taking care of an infant’s needs can be difficult.

    A CRYPTO event descended into chaos over the weekend when a security risk prompted a 'hackathon' to be evacuated.

    The denizens of Palm Beach — long used to partying billionaires — are bracing themselves today for an event the like of which few will have ever witnessed before. For this afternoon will see the much-anticipated, mega-bucks mega-nuptials between Brooklyn Beckham, the 23-year-old son of David and Victoria, and his bride Nicola Peltz, 27, whose billionaire father owns the Wendy’s burgers chain, among other interests.  It’s an event which has it all. Held over three days — with three wedding dresses, three wedding planners and three enormous marquees — it started with a dinner on Friday night and will finish with a lavish lunch tomorrow.  While some may grouse about the ‘optics’ of the occasion — the post-Covid world is in the grip of a massive economic downturn, while atrocities are ripping apart Eastern Europe — the wedding is being heralded as a long, unfettered and joyful display of excess for that lucky 0.1 per cent for whom times are very good indeed.  Here, from the guests to the calorie-counted buffet, the Mail brings you the order of service for...

    Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office is hitting back after a newspaper article wrongly said that he had been disinvited from an event over his stances on immigration. “Investment conference in Miami cancels DeSantis’ speech over ‘anti-immigrant’ views,” said a Thursday evening headline in The Miami Herald.  The story, which was authored by reporter Mary Ellen Kas, was echoed Friday by The Tampa Bay Times.  But it wasn’t true, according to an email conversation between the governor’s Press Secretary Christina Pushaw and the Vice President of Operations of the group that is hosting the event, Eb5 Investors Magazine. Pushaw made the email conversation public after the false story was printed. “Eb5investors.com is excited to be hosting a conference in the great state of Florida,” Marie Ekberg Padilla told Pushaw. “The governor was never confirmed to participate, nor was he uninvited. We made a staff error and are regretful. It’s unfortunate that our event was used by media for political gain.” At press time, The Miami Herald has not issued a correction. “The Miami Herald is doing its part to help Governor DeSantis and the conservative movement...

Miami immigration attorney Ira Kurzban was one of the individuals who objected to news that DeSantis would be the keynote speaker. In an email to the conference hosts reported by the Herald, Kurzban called DeSantis "a mini-me for his Trump-like tactics" and said he "has engaged in the most virulent anti-immigrant conduct we have ever seen by a public official in this state." According to the Herald, Kurzban's email prompted other conference sponsors and panelists to threaten to withdraw from the event because of DeSantis' inclusion. “We are sponsors as...
