    I've actually tried 3 different colon cleanse including this one. I've tried one powder and 2 capsules. I'm sure everyone gets different results, but the powder one actually works the best for me, but it tastes nasty and I really hate taking it but it works like an amazing.

    The median price for Las Vegas residential real estate has gone up by about 15% in the past year and keeps appreciating more than 1.2% per month.

In this video we discuss Las Vegas residential real estate inventory as of July, 27, 2014 and sales numbers and median prices for Las Vegas homes, condos and town homes for June, 2014.

  • PACKER EYES NEW FRONTIER SITE

    Casino owner or Bond villain: You decide. James Packer, the Aussie billionaire who's a key figure in the casino game Down Under, and who was recently linked to rumors of wanting to buy the Cosmopolitan, is talking with Oaktree Capital about buying up the land that once was home to the New Frontier. Viva la Plaza! The best part of this, though, is that it could bring the Bieber-Bloom feud to our doorstep. Packer is supposedly hooking up with Bloom's ex-wife (and possibly Bieber's ex-conquest) Miranda Kerr. He could be instrumental in skipping the formalities and setting up a Bloom-Bieber brawl…

He's held it down at the likes of Eye Candy in Mandalay and the ETA Lounge at Aliente, but still found time to branch out into Latin music. That paid off with performances at the 2009 and '10 Latin Grammy Awards official afterparties.

And while New York makes all the sense in the world as the scene of your second 'Nado experience, we can't help but think about where the it's-gonna-happen Sharknado 3 will go down. The obvious choice would be to keep it coastal. Sharks in San Fran, sharks in Miami, sharks in Seattle, D.C. or Boston. They might go international and turn a sharknado loose in London, following the early Real World migration. But come on. That's the predictable thing. And if…

The first installment of Real World Las Vegas helped make Palms a huge success shortly after the casino opened in 2001. Since then there have been ownership changes and property renovations. While the layout of Palms remains similar you may not recognize some of the names inside. The Towers have new names as do some of the bars, clubs and restaurants. Even though it’s not the same hotspot it once was Palms is still a fun casino hotel to visit and stay. Gamblers will be happy to know…

    In the 80’s and 90’s Las Vegas was known for its themed hotels. You know hotels like Luxor, Excalibur, Treasure Island and The Venetian.

Many of the themed hotel games are free or cheap to play and make for a fun activity while in Las Vegas. Many…

    Las Vegas isn’t exactly the land of subtlety, and nightclubs in particular have to pack major wow factor to compete with the other DJ emporiums up and down the Strip. So Victor Drai, local nightlife impresario, spared no expense for his new hot spot, Drai’s, at the brand-new Cromwell.
