Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Block 16 Urban Food Hall at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Photo: Jeff Green / Courtesy of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas When the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas opened in 2010, it became the hotel for the well-heeled crowd. Dark interiors with purple accents gave the hotel a seductive vibe, only further driven home by the lobby’s 15-foot digital art columns that often showed silhouettes of unclothed women. Majority of its spacious rooms were outfitted with balconies, an unparalleled offering to this day. And its Chandelier lounge, draped in illuminated beads, was where you went to see and be seen. Over the past year, the property has undergone some changes, adding in ultra-exclusive penthouses for their high rollers; switching up their stores to include Sin City–appropriate necessities like Drybar and Reviv; and revamping their food and beverage program to include New York City and Los Angeles favorites like Momofuku … [Read more...] about Inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’s Impressive Block 16 Urban Food Hall

When Jaelan Phillips came out of his momentary retirement from football in college and decided he would renew his career at the University of Miami in 2019, he had a lot of work to do on his body. The time away from the game, due to multiple injuries and concussions sustained while at UCLA, caused him to lose muscle. The edge defender was down to 225 pounds after playing at around 250 when he became the nation’s No. 1-rated recruit in high school. He talked about that before his breakthrough 2020 season with the Hurricanes that eventually led him to become a 2021 first-round pick of the Miami Dolphins. In the year and a half’s time from arriving at UM to training camp before that stellar college season, he worked his weight up 45 pounds to 270, mostly muscle gained, as he maintained his speed rush at the new weight.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The electricity system in the U.K. was its greenest ever on Easter Monday 2021: 76%. The very next day it fell to 45%. Obviously, it varies widely with how much sun is shining and how strongly winds are blowing. The energy mix on Easter Monday was 39% wind, 21% solar, and 16% nuclear. Gas power plants provided 10% and coal plants provided zilch. Wood-burning biomass was 4%. But the race to renewables had already been won by a large state with low population in Australia. In October 2020, South Australia’s electricity was carbon-free – for one hour – powered by large-scale wind and solar but also by rooftop solar collectors (one in four houses have rooftop solar in Australia). What large daily variations in green electricity tell us is that backup supplies are needed for renewables. In the U.K., backup is mainly gas-fired power plants.
