PUBLISHER'S CORNER ELECTIONS MATTER, SO GET OUT AND VOTE THIS NOVEMBER As Executive Director of the Costa Rican Investment Board in New York City, I planned and hosted a high-level meeting at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square for the President of Costa Rica, his cabinet and a group of CEOs of major U.S. corporations with manufacturing operations in Costa Rica. President Figueres and his cabinet were in New York for the annual United Nations General Assembly gathering of world leaders. When the meeting ended, the President personally invited me to join him and his ministers in the U.N. chamber to watch him deliver his annual address to the Assembly. It was a privilege and an honor to join our Costa Rica delegation at the U.N. for such an important annual event on the world stage. This past Tuesday, I could not help but feel sad and embarrassed as I watched the evening news reports about Donald Trump's speech at the United Nations General Assembly. I was horrified to learn what has happened to our nation on the world stage. There used to be a time when the President of the United States was respected by our allies and feared by our adversaries. Instead, I watched Donald Trump quite literally being laughed at by world leaders and top diplomats for his outlandish claims during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly. This new low in American diplomacy and the presidency of Donald Trump is a stark reminder to everyone that elections matter and it is very important to vote. Get out and vote this November like the future of our nation depends on it, because it does. I look forward to the day when our country once again has a true leader that the entire world respects and our allies want to work with, rather than a man who gets laughed at in unison by world leaders and top diplomats. I am also sick and tired of hearing Donald Trump blabber about "so much winning," while he sinks to the new low of becoming the laughingstock of the entire world. In this week's issue, we bring you our last Hot Models Calendar of 2018 with some very sexy photos of French model Alexis Hodebourg by David Vance. Alexis is from France, lives in Miami, does carpentry and woodwork, and likes to model. Top Trax sneak peaks Ariana Grande's latest album, Sweetener, which could be the one fans will look back on as her career-defining moment. Home Chef delivers some delicious lychee love. Flix reviews the new film White Boy Rick; and Arts Newsie Picks previews the upcoming musical performances of The Phantom Of The Opera, the Miami Symphony Orchestra and Elton John.

HOME CHEF

LYCHEE LOVE By Michael W. Sasser

hat is it about ancient products that make for such great desserts? What, is Häagen-Dazs with a fruit foam of some sort not chi-chi enough? Apparently not. And if you have eaten at a Chinese restaurant, you probably know this is true. Skip the mass market ice cream and go for the preferred choice of simply chilled lychee. Unless you are an aficionado that might be the only time you encounter the unusual Asian fruit. But once you have tried one, you might just decide to seek them out for your home meals. These days, besides the mediocre canned version, some markets and many specialty markets carry the seductive fresh version. Originally harvested in China, the lychee is a small rounded fruit with sweet white scented flesh, a large central stone, and a thin rough skin. It's also called litchi nut when dried. Its light, floral taste – some say it's a grape/rose, others insist pear/watermelon – pairs perfectly with coconut, lime, and other tropical tastes. The lychee is mostly served alone as a fruit However, there is more that can be done. Consider for example a lychee-banana fruit dessert and hardcore fans want it exactly that "soup," such as one provided by thespruceeats.com. way – fresh, natural, unadorned. There's nothing wrong with that and those who love the fruit can go their entire lives enjoying it this way. As INGREDIENTS • 1 large ripe banana, or 2 small ones a finale to an Asian themed dinner party, it's a palate-cleansing, sweet delight. • 8 to 10 fresh lychees, peeled (see below), or canned lychees (drained) • 1 can of coconut milk (regular or "lite") • 1/4 to 1/3 cup of loosely packed brown sugar, depending on desired sweetness • pinch of salt

1. Peel the lychees if you are using fresh fruit. 2. Peel the bananas, then slice them in half lengthwise. Cut these lengths into smaller sections – roughly 2 inches long. 3. Pour the coconut milk into a saucepan or pot, and place it over medium-high heat. 4. Add the sugar, stirring to dissolve (about 30 seconds to 1 minute). Start by adding 1/4 cup sugar, taste-testing for sweetness. If you'd like it sweeter, add a little more. 5. Add the rest of the ingredients. Continue stirring until the bananas, and lychees are warmed through (1 to 2 minutes). 6. Serve the banana-lychee soup immediately, or cover it and place it in the refrigerator for later. This dessert is excellent served either warm or cold. Chilled is great on hot summer days, while warm is a perfect comfort food during cooler weather. It can be your go-to recipe year-round.

CHOOSING AND PREPARING FRESH LYCHEES

• When buying lychees, look for pretty pink skin – not green. To see whether or not a lychee is ripe, simply press the skin gently with your thumb. With this, the lychee should give a little. If it's too soft, it may be over-ripe. Good lychees will also have a gorgeously lush and floral perfume. They will taste sweet, but not overly sweet. • Open the skin up. Your thumbnail is probably best for this, and then strip back the peel. • Peel off the skin entirely. • As you peel, you can eat the lychees. When you pop them into your mouth, watch out for the stone, which is very smooth and hard. If you're planning to prepare the lychees, whether serving or using them in a recipe, make sure to open up the fruit and use your thumb to remove the stone. • Better and necessary for most recipes, peel back the flesh, remove and discard the pit. Patch the fruit back together. (Source: thespruceeats.com)

Once you've mastered choosing and cleaning lychee and familiarize yourself with the flavor, there are a number of desserts. In the end, you might decide you like the simple, fresh version. But stretch out first and try recipes from all over Asia. You'll be glad you did!

TOP TRAX By DJ FR8-O

SAVORING ARIANA GRANDE'S

SWEETENER

here are few singers on the block that can measure up to the vocal prowess of pop's current "it" girl, Ariana Grande. If you don't believe me, just ask the millions of fans who have followed her journey from Nickelodeon child star to No.1 recording artist and four-time Grammy nominee. In the last five years alone, the diva has collaborated with some of the most legendary names in the biz, overcome tragedy, and released four amazing albums. Her latest, Sweetener, could be the one that fans will look back on as Grande's career-defining moment. If you haven't listened to it yet, I should revoke your rainbow card right now! Instead, I'll give you a few reasons why you shouldn't just hear Sweetener, you should savor it.

Fresh Production We live in a time when trends are currency and following them is what makes the world go round. Pop music is no exception, which is why it all tends to sound the same every now and then. Sweetener is one collection that marches to its own beat. Not only has Ari enlisted some of the most iconic producers in the biz to pilot this project – like Pharrell Williams, Max Martin and Ilya Salmanzadeh – they've all made sure to keep every track sounding fresh, cohesive and innovative from the haunting acapella intro "Raindrops" to the R&Broadway closer "Get Well Soon" to the Cuban-flavored "Arturo Sandoval" (on the deluxe set).

Squad Goals One of the things that put Ariana on our radar in the first place was her collabs with icons like Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, rapper Big Sean, and her late ex Mac Miller. Now that she's made her way to the top, that hasn't stopped her from running with the big dawgs on Sweetener. This time around, she's sharing the spotlight with the legendary Missy Elliott, Nicki (again), and rising out singer-songwriter Troye Sivan. I guess it really is all about who you know. All Grown Up The 25-year-old singer has called Sweetener the most personal album of her career. Now that she's got more creative control of her work, she's finally putting herself out there, singing about her own experiences, feelings and emotions; and taking her fans on a journey beyond the club bangers and catchy hooks. That's not to say the collection takes itself too seriously though. Despite the occasional missteps and heavy themes, in the end, Ari still manages to deliver her messages of struggle and survival with a spoonful of sugar.

Co-writing Credits It's no secret that even the biggest artists perform songs written by others. Kesha wrote "Till the World Ends" for Britney, Ryan Tedder (One Republic) wrote "Halo" for Bey, and Sia has been the go-to author for pretty much everyone in the biz. Ariana is no different, but this time she's put in her two cents into almost every one of Sweetener's entries. There's no shame in just singing other people's work, but songwriting is a craft all its own and is the difference between being a singer and being a true artist.

WHITE BOY RICK hat were you doing when you were 14 years old? I was in school trying my best to learn stuff. On the other hand, Detroit resident Rick Wershe Jr. was a school dropout, already a street hustler, an FBI informant, and well on his way to becoming a drug kingpin. Now that's youthful ambition, even if it's totally misdirected.

This will be Elton's last-ever tour, so if you have never seen the legend live in concert, get your tickets promptly. "Performing live fuels me and I'm ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe," said Elton.

After the tour finishes, I'm very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children."
