W atermelon is naturally rich in electrolytes, specifically potassium, which is essential for nerve and muscle function and responsible for converting blood sugar into glycogen. L-citrulline is not just good for muscle soreness: A study out of Florida State University found that people given a six-gram supplement of L-citrulline from watermelon extract for six weeks lowered their blood pressure and had improved arterial function, making watermelon an effective natural weapon against hypertension.

Antioxidants are chemicals that prevent (or slow) damage of cells from free radicals. Natural antioxidants are found in fruits and vegetables and watermelon is rich in one of them, lycopene. In addition to contributing to the melon’s rich pink/red color, lycopene can help fight against heart disease and play a role in lowering cholesterol.

Watermelon is a great source of vitamin A. Vitamin A is required for sebum production in the body, a nutrient that keeps hair and skin moisturized. Vitamin A is also necessary for promoting growth of all bodily tissues including hair and skin, and plays a key role.

Body surfing (or body boarding) at Sandy Beach Oahu is the best chance you’ll ever have at riding inside a Hawaiian “tube” wave.  It’s also the best chance you’ll ever have at breaking your neck if you have no idea what you’re doing, so exercise some critical judgment about your abilities before you attempt this. Almost every single wave in the shore break at Sandy Beach Oahu forms a nearly perfect tube before crashing into the sand with enough force to knock even the strongest bystander off his feet!   I’ve ridden hundreds of such waves here.  The experience of even short tube rides such as these is thrilling!  Yet even though I knew what I was doing, I’ve been slammed into the sand pretty hard as well (more than a few times).

When I was in high school, I used to go to Sandy Beach – or “Sandys” as it is often called for short – every weekend. And as a result, I had residual sand in my ears and hair and who knows where else for just about every day of my teenaged life. You’d be amazed where sand turns up a week after you’ve been in the water at Sandys! - John Doe

Due to consistently strong breezes, Sandy Beach Park is an excellent place.  Go on a weekend, and you’ll be astonished by the size and variety of kites flown by hobbyists.  Furthermore, the beach itself is wide and beautiful – and they don’t call it Sandy Beach Oahu without reason!

Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, access, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. Because the more technical term costume is regularly linked to the term “fashion”, the use of the former has been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while “fashion” generally means clothing, including the study of it. Although aspects of fashion can be feminine or masculine, some trends are androgynous.

Although tailors and dressmakers were no doubt responsible for many innovations, and the textile industry certainly led many trends, the history of fashion design is normally understood to date from 1858 when the English-born Charles Frederick Worth opened the first true haute couture house in Paris. - John Doe

The Haute house was the name established by government for the fashion houses that met the standards of industry. These fashion houses have to adhere to standards such as keeping at least twenty employees engaged in making the clothes, showing two collections per year at fashion shows, and presenting a certain number of patterns to costumers. Since then, the idea of the fashion designer as a celebrity in his or her own right has become increasingly dominant.

This is the 1st Column. The modern idea of a restaurant – as well as the term itself – appeared in Paris in the 18th century.[2] For centuries Paris had taverns which served food at large common tables, but they were notoriously crowded, noisy, not very clean, and served food of dubious quality – not very good at all. The main competitor to the Michelin guide in Europe is the guidebook series published by Gault Millau. Unlike the Michelin guide which takes the restaurant décor and service into consideration with its rating, Gault Millau only judges the quality of the food. Its ratings are on a scale of 1 to 20, with 20 being the highest.
This is the 2nd Column. In about 1765 a new kind of eating establishment, called a “Bouillon”, was opened on rue des Poulies, near the Louvre, by a man named Boulanger. It had separate tables, a menu, and specialized in soups made with a base of meat and eggs, which were said to be restaurants or, in English “restoratives”. Other similar bouillons soon opened around Paris.  Thanks to Boulanger and his imitators, these soups moved from the category of remedy into the category of health food and ultimately into the category of ordinary food….their existence was predicated on health, not gustatory, requirements.

Restaurant guides review restaurants, often ranking them or providing information to guide consumers (type of food, handicap accessibility, facilities, etc.). One of the most famous contemporary guides is the Michelin series of guides which accord from 1 to 3 stars to restaurants they perceive to be of high culinary merit. Restaurants with stars in the Michelin guide are formal, very expensive establishments.

This is the best restaurant I have ever visited. Great location and great food. The only minor downside are the prices which are pretty high but I guess quality comes with the price. - John Barbista
