My Experience in Beverly Hills with The Dorchester Collection

Nestled right at the center of Beverly Hills, I found a hotel that completely obliterated my ideals of what a hotel stay is supposed to look like last summer. The Beverly Hills Hotel, which is part of The Dorchester Collection, is much more like a resort than some of the more expensive places that actually are labeled as such. The hotel itself sits situated on 12 acres of lush landscaping and as a gardener myself, I could not help but to notice the time and attention that had been given to the exotic plants and flowers.

I had booked a three night stay at what the locals like to refer to as The Pink Palace, but ended up extending my stay for an entire week. I stayed in the superior guestroom, which included a balcony that overlooked the peaceful garden scenery. Each day I had my morning coffee on the balcony and it was an incredibly refreshing start to the day. The guestroom itself was not overly massive, but was plenty spacious for the price I paid and definitely all of the room I wanted as I was traveling alone. I was really impressed with the clean artistic design that boasted pastel colors paired with bold color patterns and lush fabrics. A person can get a sneak peak of everything on YouTube if they want.

One of my favorite things about staying at The Beverly Hills was the fact that everything I wanted was within reach without me having to veer to far away from my room. One of my main reasons for visiting the area was to take advantage of the world-renowned spa, The Beverly Hills Spa by La Prairie. It is actually located in the promenade of the hotel and open all week, which was incredibly convenient. I also too advantage of the fact that the Polo Lounge serves food indoors or out and has an amazing menu selection. Plus, if you are lounging at the pool, you can have food or drinks delivered by the Cabana Cafe.

Although I only chose a basic guestroom on this trip, I am planning to go back and check out one of the 23 unique bungalows that the hotel has to offer. This would be an incredible place to take along several friends for a short stay, which is what I plan to do. I found this place to be incredibly warm and inviting, which is not always easy in an upscale environment such as a five-star hotel.

Entire Community Comes Together to Support One Man

What is life like for individuals with hearing impairments? How much different is life for those who can not hear the conversations that are going on around them? Those who can hear don’t always think about just how much they take for granted, while those who can’t hear don’t realize how much they are missing out on. One community decided to come together to support a hearing impaired individual, giving him a great surprise and gift.

For a hearing impaired man in Instanbal, life will never be the same again. After missing out on so much of life due to his hearing trouble, this man now knows just what an amazing community he is living in. This man was surprised by his community when they all worked together to learn sign language in secrete. That’s right, they all learned sign language so that they could communicate with him, giving him the biggest surprise of his lifetime. Jason Halpern (Therealdeal.com) knows that, even when we don’t necessarily understand what others face each day, it is important for us to draw together and work hard to make their lives easier.

E-cigarettes not a health risk compared to conventional cigarettes

A study published in the journal of Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology has shown that harmful and potentially harmful constituents (HPCPs) are 1500 times lower in e-cigarettes than in conventional cigarettes. Little research has been done on e-cigarettes until now. The people scrunching up their faces and looking worried that a puff near them is going to kill them and the e-cig puffer can stop now. A biased and poorly done study done in 2010, published in an issue of Tobacco Control (of course) is discussed at http://health.universityofcalifornia.edu/2010/12/03/study-e-cigarettes-are-unsafe-pose-health-risks/. It’s now been proven that there is absolutely no detectable carbon monoxide inhaled from an e-cigarette. Regular cigarettes are 65% combustion byproducts, whereas there are no combustion byproducts during e-cigarette use. According to Dan Newlin, the nicotine yield in an e-cig is approximately 2%, much less than a regular cigarette. The main ingredients of an e-cigarette are consistent with the disclosed ingredients: glycerin and/or propylene glycol, water and nicotine. The control used in the study was ambient air, meaning the air in the room. This testing of various brands of e-cigarettes proves there is little or no detectable amounts of HPCPs. The levels of HPCPs were very much like the air blanks used as controls. It seems likely to me that the levels of HPCPs in the air are due to pollution. Pollution from cars, buses spewing black smoke everywhere and industrial waste should be the concern. These are the activities that impact health, not an e-cigarette.

Justin Bieber Apologizes On Live TV

Justin Bieber has been in so much trouble in the past, that he’s now known more for his unruly antics, than the music that made him famous in the first place. Justin Interview. Many have gotten sick and tired of hearing Justin Bieber’s name in the news, and the reasons were never positive. Instead of putting out music in the past year, he’s been in one problem after another. When confronted about his behavior, he becomes defiant, and tends to do it all over again.

Justin’s bad behavior is the reason why Selena Gomez has separated from him several times, and this last time may be it for the couple. Justin went on the Ellen Degeneres show recently, and his demeanor, dress, and hairstyle were unlike how he usually, carries himself. He seemed somber, quiet, and very heartfelt during the interview. He took time to tell the world how sorry he was for the things he had done, and he even gave a rundown of some of his wild antics.

Justin described himself as arrogant, and said that he had so much to apologize for. It’s unknown where this sudden apology came from, since he’s been stepping to the bad side for a few years now, but it’s long overdue. Justin is now in the studio working on new music, and fans like Lee G. Lovett hope an album will be in the works for the year 2015. Wishing Justin all the best.

Heart Disease Not Affected by Salt– In New Study

In a study of 2,642 people with an average age of 74, by JAMA Internal Medicine, it has been shown that the consumption of salt may have little or now effect on heart disease risk. The mix of participants included 62% white and 38% African American.

Results of the study showed that those whose intake of sodium was between 1500 milligrams and 2300 milligrams, which amounts to about a teaspoon of salt, had no meaningful heart disease risk. With current guidelines stating that one should consume less than 1500 milligrams per day, this calls for more study.

Dr. Andreas P. Kalogeropoulos, an assistant professor of medicine at Emory University, is the lead author of the study and has stated that the guidelines must be upheld until there is more evidence in a clinical trial of adults over the age of 51.

In the meantime, it has been suggested to Brian Torchin to continue to follow those guidelines of the American Heart Association.

Is the Fantastic Four Getting Clobbered?

It’s Clobberin Time!

I have seen all three previous versions of the Fantastic Four movies. I even own the 1994 boot leg! They were my first introduction into the adventurous world of comic book superheroes, and the ever-lovin blue-eyed Thing is my favorite superhero of all time!

So naturally as a fan with over three decades of enthusiasm behind me, I’m pretty invested in their on screen representation. So its disheartening to hear rumors that the next Fantastic Four movie is having trouble post production. The powers that be have called the project ‘a mess’… Despite wrapping up principal photography last year sets are now being rebuilt and reshoots have been ordered.

I just wonder will there ever be an accurate and fun representation of Marvel’s first family. The 2005 and its sequel in 2007 were definitely fun, but I wouldn’t call them accurate. There were some definite gems, but you had to pick them out. I think that it could’ve gone better if it was produced by someone with more vision like Tom Rothman. I also thought that Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis representations of the Human Torch and the Thing were spot on, especially with love/hate the buddy chemistry. I even enjoyed the plot-line where Dr. Doom stole the Silver Surfer’s power.

I just hope that director Josh Trank is able to capture the Fantastic Four’s sense of camaraderie, heroics and exploration that is so evident in the comic books. That would be truly fantastic.

Meet the Multi-Dimensional Bruce Levenson

Generally speaking, Bruce Levenson is greater as a whole than any one of his multidimensional parts. From beating the streets for a story for either the Washington Star or providing valuable information through the Observer Publishing energy information newsletter prior to co-founding and launching the United Communications Group in 1977, Mr. Levenson began his career helping others with whatever and wherever he saw a need. Throughout his college and business career path he continually demonstrates his concern by lending a helping hand to his fellow citizens whenever he can.

Through the years, Bruce Levenson, has been proactively involved in a diverse assortment of philanthropic ventures from his participation in the Community Foundation of Washington, D.C., the Hoop Dreams Foundation, to spearheading the Washington D.C. chapter of the, I have a Dream Foundation, as its president. Levenson knows and demonstrates the importance that education plays in helping impoverished and low-income children pursue the goal of a receiving a higher education.

By looking at only one aspect of this man, Bruce Levenson is to be doing an extreme injustice on the man and his wife as a whole. When we look at this man through the eyes of understanding that we all have different compartments to our lives, and that each of those compartments influences, and effectively creates the people that we are and will become. This is never more evident than in the multidimensional life of Bruce Levenson, and his wife, Karen Levenson.

When seeking to learn about the people and influencers in our society, we should learn to look at the person as a whole, instead of focusing on the individual parts to a person. That’s the case with Bruce Levenson. We all grow, change and develop, at different rates, and many times, we only want to see people as a one dimensional being, instead of seeing the bigger portrait of the person that is truly displayed.

TriStar of Tom Rothman and MRC Team Up For ‘Baby Driver’

It has been confirmed by Hollywood Reporter that TriStar Productions of Tom Rothman and MRC would be working together for ‘Baby Driver’, the next film by Edgar Wright. It has also been confirmed that Ansel Elgort – who played the role of brash ‘Augustus Waters’ in the movie adaptation of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ written by John Green– is being considered as the lead in ‘Baby Driver’. The role is also being eyed by John Boyega and Logan Lerman.

The story is Edgar Wright’s original idea and involves a getaway driver who is called ‘Baby’ because of his young looking face. He gets into the world of crime after being coerced by a crime boss. However, a doomed heist might threaten his freedom, love and life.

The production would be by Nira Park and Working Title while the project would be co-financed by TriStar and MRC 50:50.

Rothman mentioned how delighted he was that his next film would be made by Edgar Wright. He added that TriStar’s sole aim was to back original voices and there was no one better to do that than Edgar Wright. Edgar Wright is known for his work in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End – The Cornetto Flm Trilogy – for which he has received many accolades. He also wrote the screenplay of ‘Ant-Man’ with Cornish and was all set to direct the movie but departed from the project recently. Rothman revealed that he was looking forward to partnering with MRC and collaborating with Working Title as well.

The movie would involve a “rock and roll car chase”, as revealed by Rothman and Edgar Wright has some experience in directing movies like this. He is known for his timing and carefully crafted humor in the movies he directs. He has previously won the ‘Best Director’ Empire award for ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’.

SuperBugs May Kill As Much As 300 Million People By 2050

Just this past week a non-government advocacy group by the name of the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, published the results of their reports that proclaimed that as much as 300 million people will die from super-bugs by 2050.

They also proclaimed that by 2050, the world GDP will be drained by $100 trillion dollars due to these super-bug pandemics and that by 2050, approximately 10 million people will die every year, due to an infection from a super-bug, which is a virus or disease that is resilient to antibiotics.

The report proclaimed that the biggest killer will be malaria, a virus that many experts believe has been responsible for half of all human deaths, since the dawn of man. As far as world’s GDP goes, they believe that the virus that will cost the world the most, in terms of health care costs, is E.coli which is prevalent in a variety of places within Africa.

While they believe that a vast majority of the estimated deaths will be from smaller countries, it will still have a big impact on rich countries as well. Out of the $100 trillion dollars that the report proclaimed that the world will have to pay in response to these super-bug threats, the report states that the OECD or Economic Co-operation and Development, will face losses in the excess of $35 trillion by 2050.

The proclaimed that many of the outbreaks that will occur in the foreseeable future, will occur as a result of globalization. Darius Fisher will be closely monitoring things. They proclaim that through globalization, one nation may be able to fend of a particular virus via antibiotic and inadvertently cause a new more resilient breed of the virus to surface which will be unintendedly transported to another country, causing a super-bug pandemic.
