St. Louis is known for a lot of things. The arch, the Cardinals, toasted ravioli, Mardi Gras... but we're not typically known for our sushi. To be fair, I'm sure any non-coastal city can easily maintain a seafood industry. But for those of us St. Louisans who just can't wait for a summer trip to find fresh, delicious sushi, we've scoured the city for the best options. And thanks to some brave sampling and input from my true sushi-loving friends, I've arguably found the best spot in the Midwest.
We all have that friend who speaks every line of a movie word-for-word, pause-for-pause. Well I'm sorry to say I am that friend, and no movie moreso than Dirty Dancing. I know the classic film forward and backward, and I was elated to hear that it would be coming to a live performance at none other than the St. Louis Fox theater, presented by Dance St. Louis. Knowing my preconceived love for the Dirty Dancing movie, I planned to attend the live performance with an open mind. After all, who can top Patrick Swayze? Those are pretty big shoes to fill.
Shoes, I would soon find, would not be filled at all. I attended the evening performance on Thursday (October 23, 2014) buzzing with excitement. It only took a few scenes to see that I would be let down... By the cast, the set, and the script...
Bachelorette: Season 10, Episode 6
On tonight's episode of The Bachelorette, Andi took the guys on a romantic date in Italy... to take a lie detector test. While it might be a fun, random game to play with your friends or your significant other on a boring evening, it seemed inappropriate in this situation. When you're in a relationship with 8 men, and you constantly emphasize the importance of honesty, it sends a pretty big message that you don't practice what you preach.
I know this because I've personally experienced the beauty of honesty and truth in a relationship...
I saw a post on Facebook from a friend, linking to an article about Raspberry Ketone Fresh. It was a glowing review from a women's magazine about the product's amazing ability to melt stubborn belly fat. I read a couple other online articles that said Raspberry Ketone had been rising in popularity as a weight loss supplement, and apparently Dr. Oz had endorsed it. I don't watch Dr. Oz, so I don't know if that's true or not. But what I do know is that the internet is full of people asking the same questions about this product: "Does Raspberry Ketone really work?" and "Is this a scam?" Take my word for it - it is too good to be true. It turns out the company even lied, saying that it had received endorsements from Glamour Magazine and Women's Health, both of which denied any support of the product and called out the scam. It also claimed celebrity endorsements from celebrities, such as Adele. It seems that Raspberry Ketone Fresh develops fraudulent web pages to look like real magazines endorsing their product. So, the magazine article I had read was fake, as was the Facebook post that had spammed my friend's wall.
