Clarke Cooke House

Clarke Cooke House at Dusk

The iconic host of royalty and yachting stars, captains of industry, charming scalawags, and a smattering of international polo jet-setters, will bring its legendary name to the International Polo Grounds on Saturday, June 10th to host the inaugural Clarke Cooke Cup.  The classic 6-chukker match will pit Newport's veteran players against a team of up-and-comers representing the Clarke Cooke House.

The Clarke Cooke House is as legendary as the heartbeat of Newport, RI, an unparalleled, quintessential Newport experience.  Whether a quiet dinner or late night revelry, our goal has always been to provide great food, professional service, and a sophisticated environment. The Clarke Cooke House lends its unique charm to any celebration or meeting, whether a victorious America's Cup crew or family gathering - our dining room and porches are the perfect Newport setting.

Atria Senior Living

Atria's Chef Schmitt with Ed Herider

“You’ve gotta get serious about it and decide what you want your life to be, what kind of quality of life you want to have.”

Ed Herider is not a personal trainer or life coach – he is a 79-year-old resident at Atria Canyon Creek in Plano, Texas.  Ed is a founding member of his community’s Better This Year Club, a group of active residents who get together once a week to share news and ideas about achieving a healthier lifestyle and enjoying greater well-being. They’re inspired by Atria’s Better This Year framework, a science-backed approach to successful aging based on four key lifestyle choices proven to slow down decline: exercise, nutrition, connection and goals.  Now, he’s helping his neighbors understand that “good” and “good for you” aren’t mutually exclusive through his participation in the community’s Food for Thought group, a committee of five residents and executive chef Bernd Schmitt.  The collaboration has yielded some tasty results.  Read the full story and get the recipes at www.atriaseniorliving.com
