TNT’s Final ‘Christmas in Washington’ Special Tomorrow

Screen Shot 2014-12-18 at 3.19.39 PM

Taped Sunday evening, TNT’s broadcast of ”Christmas in Washington” airing at 8 PM ET tomorrow will be its last – at least for the time being.

The 33-year-old special, hosted this year by my fellow Miami Hurricane, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, will have to find a new home after the network’s parent company, Time Warner, decided on Monday that it will no longer sponsor the special.

This year’s “Christmas in Washington,” taped at the National Building Museum, was headlined by holiday-themed performances from Rita Ora, Darius Rucker, Hunter Hayes, Christina Perri and Aloe Blacc, as well as the traditional group carol sing-a-long with President Barack Obama, the first lady and daughters Malia and Sasha.

Global Virus Network’s ‘Annual Fundraising Event’ At Cafe Milano

With the announcement of TIME Magazine‘s Person of the Year honor going to ’Ebola Fighters’ (justly beating out another global parasite, Vladimir Putin), virologists are finally getting some of the recognition they deserve.

Last night at the “Annual Fundraising Event” for the Global Virus Network (GVN), an intimate gathering of top scientists, humanitarians, lawyers, and businesspeople met to discuss current and future responses to global epidemics like ebola.

Hosted at the Georgetown landmark, Cafe Milano, by the restaurant’s owner and member of the GVN Board of Directors Franco Nuschese, the evening was lovely even with its more serious tone – filled with delicious food and superb Italian wine (per usual for Cafe Milano).

Speeches from GVN President, Dr. Sharon Hrynkow, GVN Co-Founder & Scientific Director, Dr. Robert GalloTimothy Moynahan, Chairman of GVN Board of Directors, and one of GVN’s leading Ebola scientists, Dr. Erica Ollmann Saphire, all highlighted the themes of the night: diligence and vigilance — by continuing the fight against epidemics at their source and maintaining a high level of preparedness.  For GVN, preparedness means making sure that great virologists are in place in every country, since no one knows where or when the next outbreak of a major viral killer will occur.

The importance of their work cannot be emphasized enough. It was an honor to attend.

For more information on the Global Virus Network, go to their website at gvn.org.
