The Olympics may be over, but there’s more action to come in Rio. We’re talking about the Paralympics, which run from September 7 to 18. The competitors in these games aren’t just amazing athletes — they’re also incredible people who have overcome obstacles and still manage to bring it on the world stage. We asked them to share what they eat on a daily basis. Here’s what we found out.

Years ago your only choice for watermelon was the big 20-pounder or perhaps wedges of that behemoth cut and wrapped nicely by your grocery store staff.

Nowadays, however, the larger watermelons have minis to compete with. And frankly, I like mini watermelons — the ones that clock in at around five pounds — a whole lot more. Here are three reasons why I believe mini watermelons are the ones to buy.

Of all the alcoholic beverage options out there, beer is probably the best at quelling the heat and quenching chile-induced thirst. For starters, beer tends to be fairly low alcohol — five to seven percent ABV compared to 10 to 15 percent for wine and 40 percent for spirits. Carbonation also helps remove the fiery heat of capsaicin from the palate.

But not all beers are created equal — just like not all spicy foods are created equal. The key to finding the best suds for the dish at hand is to pair like with like. When the weight and mouthfeel of a beer matches the dish it’s served alongside, something fantastic happens: complimentary flavors in both the food and beer are accented, making the combination far better than the sum of its parts.

A front porch is a magical place. It’s public and private. It allows you to be part of the larger world around you while having time to yourself and your family. You can wave hello to your neighbors without having to stop what you are doing or make small talk, or if you’re feeling social you can invite them to come join you.

It’s the best, and it makes everything and every time (or at least these seven times) better. So go ahead — take a step out your front door and take a seat.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a grand wrap-around veranda or a tiny Juliet balcony looking out over the street — a front porch is a perfect place for conversations big and small. And those chats — whether intimate exchanges or idle gossip; talking truth or telling tall tales — with old friends, neighbors, lovers, soon-to-be-ex-lovers, what have you, are almost always improved by a cold drink.

Here are five types of conversations to have on the porch, plus their refreshing beverage counterparts.

This past June, Costco transitioned from using American Express to exclusively Visa, and it hasn’t been a smooth ride. The transition required 11 million of Costco’s 81 million members to switch from the TrueEarnings American Express Costco card to the Costco Anywhere Visa. Many issues arose, including people not receiving their new card and spending hours on the phone trying to reach customer support.
