From the Anheuser-Busch family to a Canadian TV star, this historic Florida retreat has seen its share of celebrity owners. Known as Manga Reva, the palatial Fort Lauderdale estate was built by Adolphus Busch III, then president and chief executive of Anheuser-Busch, in 1938. Situated on the Intracoastal Waterway, this 14,000-square-foot Mediterranean-inspired home has been in the hands of Michael Wekerle, a Canadian banker and reality-television celebrity, since 2014. According to listing agent Ruchel Coetzee, Wekerle recently decided to part with the home due to pandemic-related travel restrictions. The eight-bedroom and nine-bathroom home, designed for the brewing dynasty by architect Francis Abreu, was also featured in some scenes in the 1960 comedy Where the Boys Are, a film about a raucous spring break in Fort Lauderdale. While many original details—stone columns, inlaid wooden floors, decorative tilework, and a huge Banyan tree—remain, the home’s bathrooms and electrical systems have all been updated. Bold, modern flourishes like the bright-red billiards room were the work of Wekerle. Manga Reva is currently listed by Douglas Elliman for a cool $19.25 million. Wekerle’s art collection, which is valued between $2.5 million and $3 million, is also for sale. Join us for a tour?

Trump quietly closed the U.S.'s vaccine safety office last year. Researchers are scrambling to replace it.
Developers will start rolling out their COVID-19 vaccines in the coming months, leaving U.S. health officials to test their long-term safety. But that won't be easy, especially given that the Trump administration quietly shut down the office responsible for ensuring the safety of vaccines last year, The New York Times reports.Before the late 1980s, vaccine safety relied on parents, doctors, vaccine makers, and hospitals to step forward and report symptoms they feared were connected to a vaccine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention then worked out a new system that sought out clusters of symptoms among people who receive a vaccine, and expanded that oversight during the H1N1 epidemic of 2009. This system helped the U.S. figure out which symptoms actually popped up long after a vaccine was injected, and which were just coincidental.But in 2019, the National Vaccine Program Office was shut down in an effort to cut costs and "eliminate program redundancies," Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar wrote at the time. The shortsightedness of that shutdown has come into clear view amid the coronavirus pandemic, said Dr. Nicole Lurie, who who was assistant secretary for preparedness and response at HHS during the 2009 pandemic. FDA and CDC staffers have reportedly been meeting up on their own time to cobble some safety projects together. "There's no sort of active coordination to bring all the information together," Lurie told the Times.Other vaccine experts and political scientists have their own concerns: foreign disinformation campaigns, a lack of transparency, proper communications to clear up health issues unrelated to vaccines, to name a few. A coordinated vaccine office would be tasked with handling all of that. Read more at The New York Times.More stories from theweek.com Trump loses on the merits Who won the final 2020 debate?
