You don't have to be an adherent of raw food (nothing heated to more than 115 degrees) to appreciate some dishes in the raw. A story about the new raw food restaurant M.A.K.E. and its culinary academy uncovers a cuisine that's coming in from the fringe. (Who doesn't love zucchini "noodle" lasagna, anyway?) "I think now a lot of people who are not strict about raw food are incorporating it into their diets," says M.A.K.E. owner Matthew Kenney.  Much of the cuisine at M.A.K.E.

I always feel fleeced after going to Staples Center; the prices are just enormous. This might be the worst value in America, and that includes the Kardashian sisters and overpriced Bavarian sedans. Still, I go because "that's where the money is," as Willie Sutton purportedly said when asked why he robbed banks. Were he alive today, even Sutton could not afford a Lakers game. Yet, there is a buzzy, irresistible splendor to the joint. I hate that I like it. Honestly, there is a giant Christmas tree outside Staples that looks to be made of recycled Toyotas.

There are two types of customers at George Burnett's juice shop in Vernal, Utah. The conservative kind pays $4.95 for a 16-ounce juice or smoothie. But call yourself a liberal? Get ready to shell out an extra dollar. Burnett figures it's a way to make a “very public” point about his thoughts on American fiscal policy. “Really what I'm focused on is the fiscal differences between big government, small government and liberal ways, as far as entitlements and spending,” he told KSL-TV Channel 5 in Salt Lake City.

The perfect smoothie lies somewhere between the perfect wave and the perfect mate--as much an experience as an ideal object. It may be out there--a heavenly delight of blended fruit, crushed ice and maybe a dollop of yogurt--but finding it is so often the result of dumb luck, maybe even fate. But, as with waves and potential mates, Southern California abounds with tasty smoothies.

Most of us are too plump and are overly fond of snacks, fast food - and food in general. So why did two lean young women who dine on smoothies and organic fruits and vegetables (how unimpeachable does that sound) seek help cleaning up their act? May Haduong, 33, and Frances Motiwalla, 34, just had this sense they were slaves to each passing fad (greens! organic! flaxseed! gluten-free!) and were building up their eating rules in a haphazard, unscientific way. "We've sort of made it up in our heads," Haduong says: whirring up slurries of kale, beet greens, frozen fruits and celery in the blender in their pint-sized kitchen twice a day (down to once a day when Motiwalla couldn't take it anymore)

The combination of pot odds, stack sizes and other mathematical variables can make no-limit hold 'em seem like a complex game. And then there are times when the game can be as simple as believing you hold the best hand and then betting it, as legendary gambler Billy Baxter concluded in this hand from the $25,000-buy-in World Poker Tour Championship at Las Vegas' Bellagio in 2010. With blinds at $1,200-$2,400 plus a $300 ante, J.J. Liu opened for $6,000 in middle position. The player in the cutoff called.

When she was 8 years old, Evelyn Espinoza sold bubble gum and other candy door-to-door in her Los Angeles neighborhood to earn money. By sixth grade, her mom was buying the enterprising 12-year-old toys at a wholesale mart to resell at school. Now 17, Espinoza is still hard at work.

A fruit smoothie is just about the easiest dessert you can make with the abundant fruits now available at supermarkets and farmers markets. All you have to do is blend fruit, milk and yogurt together into a thick froth. The secret to a great frosty smoothie is to skip the ice that can dilute the drink and use frozen fruit instead. To do so, spread sliced, peeled peaches, nectarines or plums on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for a few hours.

How many ways can a man be manly in the movies these days? The film historian Robert Sklar once wrote that "each generation exaggerates its own crises of masculinity." If this is true, we must be in a doozy of a crisis right now. There hasn't been this much industrial-strength machismo, both as cause for celebration and denunciation, since the post-Vietnam Reagan '80s superhero heyday of Rambo and Gordon Gekko.
