    Mid-Miami Beach and a Zika mosquito

Just this week the Miami Beach City Commission considered but rejected a proposal to build bat houses in a bid to control the Aedes aegypti mosquito’s that carry the virus.

    "There's a (false) sense that owning real estate is the same as owning a bond.”

    Jonathan Gray thinks people are getting too worked up about interest rates.

    “There’s a (false) sense that owning real estate is the same as owning a bond,” Blackstone Group’s real estate head said in an interview on CNBC Tuesday. “Real estate, like stocks, can see earnings growth. And that’s what we’re seeing today because of favorable fundamentals.” Click here to watch the video and read more.
