Demand for retail space in South Florida is heating up with small and midsize retailers leading the pack

The high demand for space in community shopping centers truly shows how quickly the retail market has recovered in South Florida.”

— Milton Mekler

FORT LAUDERDALE , FLORIDA, US, May 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a sign the South Florida retail market is bouncing back faster than expected from the dark days of the pandemic, Miami Manager has signed seven new leases in the first quarter of 2021. The new tenants are quickly filling up spaces in Miami Manager’s community shopping centers in Doral, Coconut Creek, Plantation, Sunrise and West Palm Beach. The new leases total a space absorption of 17,507 square feet. The tenants are small to midsize businesses either entering new neighborhoods or expanding their current footprint.

The surge of retail leases in South Florida speaks to the market’s speedy recovery since retail stores were forced to shut down nearly a year ago, bringing lease deals to a halt.

“We are excited to welcome so many new tenants to our properties,” said Miami Manager COO Milton Mekler, who oversees leasing. “The high demand for space in community shopping centers truly shows how quickly the retail market has recovered in South Florida. By now, most of the space that became available during the pandemic has been absorbed. We are working closely with our prospective tenants to come up with deals that make economic sense to them and to us. We have been able to meet in the middle to create win-win situations given the fact some retailers are still nervous about the pandemic.”

Some of the new tenants include Locos X Grill, which has leased 4,240 square feet at our Shoppes at MICC at 7780 NW 25 Street. The new restaurant offers one-of-a-kind Chinese Venezuelan fusion and wood-fired BBQ.

Tennis Plaza, the No. 1 tennis retail store company in the U.S., has leased 1,533 square feet in Gateway at Sawgrass at 129 NW 136 Avenue. Tennis Plaza offers a world-class selection of tennis equipment, apparel and more for players of all ages and levels. Saphira Privé, which offers the most advanced and comprehensive unisex aesthetic and beauty treatments with state-of-the-art electro-aesthetic devices, has signed a lease for 1,003 square feet also at Gateway at Sawgrass. Embarcadero 41, with a cuisine based on the evolution of Peruvian gastronomy, has expanded its current location at Gateway at Sawgrass to include an additional 976 square feet. Embarcadero, which opened during the worst months of the pandemic, is expanding to occupy a total of 2,216 square feet.

Big Dreams Uniforms, South Florida’s source of uniforms for students, nurses, doctors and chefs, has leased 1,295 square feet in Plantation Marketplace at 7023 W. Broward Blvd. Smoke Pharm has leased 1,852 square feet in the same shopping plaza. Smoke Pharm sells hookahs, shisha tobacco, coals and hookah accessories.

Miracle Leaf, a premier medical cannabis health center that offers alternative pathways to healthier living, has leased 1,365 square feet at Village Shoppes of Coconut Creek at 690 N. State Road 7.

Miami Manager saw more activity in its community shopping centers in Broward County, where most of its properties are located. Broward has shown significant signs of improvement compared with 2020, when the pandemic forced retailers to shut down to curtail the spread of the virus. Case in point: the overall retail vacancy rate in Broward decreased 20-basis points from the fourth quarter, standing at 5.4 percent at the end of the first quarter, according to Colliers International. Meanwhile, the direct asking lease rate increased 3.7 percent quarter-over-quarter reaching $22.71 per square foot. Net absorption also increased quarter-over-quarter, from negative 118,916 square feet in the fourth quarter to positive 193,693 square feet in the first quarter.

The Miami-Dade County retail market experienced marginal changes in fundamentals in the first quarter of 2021, according to Colliers International. The overall vacancy rate did not change, ending the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021 at 4.6 percent. The direct asking lease rate grew slightly, ending the first quarter at $36.87 per square foot; a 1.9 percent increase quarter-over-quarter. Net absorption posted a positive 42,526 square feet in the first quarter with leasing activity reaching 352,534 square feet.

The Palm Beach County retail market had a vacancy rate of 5.2 percent at the end of the first quarter, representing no change quarter-over-quarter, Colliers International reported. Meanwhile, the direct asking lease rate increased 4.4 percent, the most in South Florida, ending the first quarter at $24.51 per square foot. Net absorption posted a positive 50,337 square feet in the first quarter with leasing activity reaching 475,887 square feet, both values surpassing the previous quarter’s. While there were limited new deliveries in Q1 2021, 604,511 square feet remain under construction. Retail demand is expected to increase in the coming year due to increased in-migration of companies and residents and strengthening market fundamentals.

Mary Ambrefe of Widow Rising to be Featured on Close Up Radio

NORWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, May 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Losing a spouse can be one of the most devastating events one will ever experience. Life is changed in an instant and you are mired in sorrow. While we all grieve in our own way, eventually with healthy coping strategies you learn not to get stuck but rather forge a path forward. As you move through the grieving process, you may wish to consider a professional Widow Coach to help you plan your future, keep you grounded, navigate your life’s journey with greater ease and acceptance, and welcome change with positivity and renewed hope for a brighter, healthier future.

Mary Meade Ambrefe, Pharm.D., BCGP, is a professional Certified Health Coach, Certified Widow Coach, Clinical Pharmacist and owner of Widow Rising.

“One of the most gratifying facets of my coaching is how I understand the impact of your loss and what you may be experiencing from my own personal journey,” says Mary. “In a safe and supportive space, I offer you resources and tools to facilitate a transformative process, doing the necessary work of managing your grief and learning to find purpose and joy again.”

Prior to becoming a Coach, Mary was a registered Pharmacist for over 30 years. Along with her husband Brian, also a pharmacist, they witnessed a trend of overprescribing medication which put patients at risk for medication related problems and potentially serious outcomes. Realizing how critically important it was to prevent disease before it starts and minimize the problem of overmedicating, they completed a rigorous Health Coaching Certificate program intent on opening up a wellness practice. Sadly, Brian suddenly passed away before they could realize their dream. As Mary grieved and came to terms with her loss, she realized how many widows like herself were in need of guidance. In October of 2020 she became a Certified Widow Coach determined to help others find a much needed support system, rebuild their lives, and be restored to wellness.

“As a coach, the cornerstone of my work is to ask appropriate questions that really encourage you to dig deep and examine your thoughts, sort through your feelings, and approach difficult transitions so you can focus on action that is meaningful to you and your life story.”

Mary says it is completely natural to always grieve for our loved ones but there is a growth progression that prevents us from getting stuck in our sorrow.

Her wonderfully effective coping strategies include practicing self-care and mindfulness techniques like journaling and meditation.

Through her unique widow coaching program Mary offers the most insightful coping strategies and amazing tools comprised of four pillars, emotional coaching, health and wellness, a legacy guide so the widow can honor the life of her spouse and her own, and medication consultation to help her clients manage any meds they may be using. The widow or widower is guided in the direction of life affirming growth.

“We each can be the hero of our own story when we choose how we want to inspire the world,” says Mary. “While honoring your loved one, you will determine what direction you wish to go and achieve self-discovery in the process. With purpose and passion, I will partner with you to help you get there.”

Close Up Radio will feature Mary Ambrefe in an interview with Jim Masters on May 18th at 10 a.m. EST and with Doug Llewelyn on Tuesday May 25th at 10 a.m. EST

Michelman's new suite of DigiGuard® Plus UV OPV strengtheners is economical and easy to use compared to lamination or other complex solutions.

Michelman has partnered with HP Indigo for nearly 20 years to bring innovation that offers press owners digital print versatility to enter new markets”

— Lisa DiGate

CINCINNATI, OH, UNITED STATES, May 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Label printers can better serve high-performance label markets with digital print technology designed to enhance the mechanical, water, chemical, and thermal durability of digitally printed labels on HP Indigo label presses.

Michelman recently expanded its suite of high-performance label solutions, used with UV overprint varnishes (OPVs), permitting HP Indigo digitally-printed labels to endure harsh environments, including extreme heat, chemicals, water, or friction during packing and transport. These solutions allow press owners to increase their addressable market size and produce more with their HP Indigo digital label presses in applications such as packaging for personal care & cosmetics, household cleaners, automotive oils & fluids, wine & beer bottles, and industrial & electronic equipment.

Explains Lisa DiGate, Michelman’s Global Business Vice President, HP Indigo, "Michelman has partnered with HP Indigo for nearly 20 years to bring innovation that offers press owners digital print versatility to enter new markets. We are excited to introduce new solutions that protect HP Indigo printed labels, address more demanding label applications, and open up new market opportunities throughout the label industry; for our customers and partners."

Michelman's new suite of DigiGuard® Plus UV OPV strengtheners is economical and easy to use compared to lamination or other complex solutions. The entire portfolio, designed to improve UV OPVs' performance combined with Michelman's DigiPrime® priming solutions, allows press owners' improved ease-of-use by using off-the-shelf varnish with the strengtheners added. They can use their current UV Curable OPVs without investing in additional products or finishing equipment. Furthermore, their performance has been tested via the Sutherland Rub & other ASTM, Finat, Bottle to Bottle, and submersion tests. All have achieved digital print industry resistance standards for label durability.

DigiGuard® Plus 902 UV OPV Strengthener: Provides water, thermal and chemical resistance for high-performance labels and is an economical substitute for DigiGuard UV OPV 901.
DigiGuard® Plus 920 UV OPV Strengthener: Provides mechanical and rub resistance for high-performance labels.
DigiGuard® Plus 921 UV OPV Strengthener: Provides water and chemical resistance for high-performance labels.

North Carolina US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate Has Endorsed Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste to Ensure Compensation for a Navy Veteran with Lung Cancer in North Carolina-If He Had Navy Asbestos Exposure

North Carolina

"We have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to ensure a Navy Veteran with lung cancer in North Carolina gets compensated-if they had significant exposure to asbestos. ”

— North Carolina US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA , USA, May 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The North Carolina US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We have endorsed, and we highly recommend attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to make certain a Navy Veteran with lung cancer in North Carolina gets compensated-if during their time in the navy they had significant exposure to asbestos. A financial compensation settlement package for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old-and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. The Navy Veteran was probably exposed to asbestos prior to 1982 on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is happy to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303.

"If the individual we have just described sounds like your husband or dad and his lung cancer diagnosis has occurred within the last few years-please take your loved one’s financial compensation seriously and call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Most people we help are stunned to learn the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The North Carolina US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate’s free services are available to people with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma in Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Fayetteville, Asheville, Wilmington or anywhere in North Carolina. https://NorthCarolina.USNavyLungCancer.Com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in North Carolina include Veterans of the US Navy, civilian workers at Fort Bragg, a worker at one of North Carolina’s dozens of power plants, steel mill workers, pulp, or paper mill workers, public utility workers, factory workers, plumbers, welders, insulators, millwrights, electricians, coal miners, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.com/

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware. www.karstvonoiste.com/

This really is a miracle. That’s not an overstatement. The Zani Lab has achieved what researchers have tried to do for decades; find a way to grow lungs restricted by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.”

— Dawn Ireland

WAKE FOREST, NC, UNITED STATES, May 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Charity cheers for incredible breakthrough, as international research team uses exosomes from amniotic fluid stem cells in animal models and human lung cells to treat underdeveloped fetal lungs, restarting growth and normal functioning.

The patient families at CDH International were shocked by the recent news that Dr. Augusto Zani and his team at the Zani Lab at the University of Toronto were able to grow fetal lungs in experimental models of CDH. The shock quickly turned into hope for the over 52,000 children worldwide every year with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH).

CDH occurs during gestation, when the diaphragm fails to fully form often allowing abdominal organs to reach the chest cavity and restrict lung growth. There is a 50 percent chance of survival with CDH and the cause is still unknown. Treatment is surgery shortly after birth and a long recovery for those who survive. This new research will make it possible to regenerate those damaged lungs before the baby is born, giving these children a much better chance at survival.

While the promising finding is still in its experimental stage, Dr. Augusto Zani and his team have been moving on to human samples to test how well their therapy works. The next steps are to test their therapy in large animal models, then in a small cohort of patients with CDH.

This research was supported by CDH International in a long supportive relationship between the Lab and the charity, which has helped secure research funding for Dr. Augusto Zani and his team.

“We are very excited about this potential therapeutic option for CDH, a devastating disease that currently does not have an effective and widely available antenatal treatment. The unwavering support of CDH International was critical for us to not only spread the word and reach thousands of CDH families, but also to keep us motivated and inspired to push the research forward” said Dr. Augusto Zani.

“When Dr. Zani shared the lab’s findings, we were just floored. We knew what he was researching, had so desperately hoped that they would be successful and after all of these years of baited breath with so many research centers teasing hope… it has finally arrived. I truly believe that this is the beginning of the end of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and I could not be more hopeful for these children and more proud of our charity’s tiny role” says CDH International President, Dawn Ireland.

“This really is a miracle. That’s not an overstatement. The Zani Lab has achieved what CDH researchers have tried to do for decades – find a way to grow lungs restricted by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.”

"This breakthrough means answered prayers for future babies to have a better chance at a healthy life" says Lynne Brogdon, mother to CDH survivor, Baer Brogdon.

Kimberly Job, mother to Alexandria who did not survive CDH, had this to add to the discussion; "The work accomplished by Zani Lab gives epic and eternal hope to families who have been, or will be dealing with this devastating and possibly detrimental birth defect!"

Ximena Arroyo, whose daughter, Rosalie is a CDH survivor says "Zani Lab’s breakthrough means more; more hope, more survivors, more possibilities for the CDH community".

"Such an amazing breakthrough! This will give so much more hope to families with newly diagnosed CDH babies, so they can be given the best chances at life, before they're even born!" added Deirdre McKenna in Ireland, who lost her son to Elliott to CDH and is part of a global network of patient families at CDH International.

CDH is classified as a rare disease but it’s a fairly common birth defect. The March of Dimes no longer funds birth defect research so our kids have lost over half of the little research funding that they had. NIH funds less than $5,000,000 a year for CDH. The economical cost of CDH on families and governments is astronomical. Now, Covid-19 has taken much of that funding too and research is suffering across the board. Our kids feel invisible because the world doesn’t see them but then incredible people like those at the Zani lab keep working for our children and accomplish something so big… It really gives our patient families hope. Not just our 100,000’s of children with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia but numerous other birth defects and medical conditions as well” says Ireland.

“It’s real hope for CDH and that’s something this community has never truly had”.

FLCCC Alliance calls for whistleblower to step forward from within WHO, the FDA, the NIH, Merck, or Unitaid to counter this misrepresentation

WASHINGTON DC, USA, May 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The FLCCC Alliance has issued the following statement regarding the posting of its new white paper:

"For too long the World Health Organization (WHO) and other public health authorities have ignored effective treatments like Ivermectin and the peer-reviewed science that supports it to help end this pandemic. We, the FLCCC Alliance, felt compelled to tell the public, our peers and our colleagues the reasons why this is happening and what they can do about it.

We have posted a white paper in which the list of irregular activities of the recent review of the evidence by WHO and the impact it is having on our ability to treat patients is presented. We also show the compelling evidence of what appears to be a deliberate disinformation campaign that is meant to mislead the public and silence doctors who do not follow the guidance from the WHO.

We hope that all citizens of the world will take the time to read this paper and share it with friends and colleagues. The current actions by the WHO to ignore some of the most published and well-respected physicians in world will have long lasting effects on our ability to give the public access to the best possible treatments now and in the future.

We cannot let this go on without acting to inform as many as possible.

Please join us in spreading the word.

Chief Medical Officer

The FLCCC Alliance is a nonprofit, humanitarian organization made up of renowned, highly published, world-expert clinician-researchers whose sole mission over the past year has been to develop and disseminate the most effective treatment protocols for COVID-19. In the past six months, much of this effort has been centered on disseminating knowledge of our identification of significant randomized, observational, and epidemiologic studies consistently demonstrating the powerful efficacy of ivermectin in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. Our manuscript detailing the depth and breadth of this evidence passed a rigorous peer review by senior scientists at the U.S Food and Drug Administration and Defense Threat Reduction Agency. Recently published, our study concludes that, based on the totality of the evidence of efficacy and safety, ivermectin should be immediately deployed to prevent and treat COVID-19 worldwide.
