36 million Americans suffer from migraines, and it ranks in the top 20 of the world’s most disabling medical illnesses.


It’s the latest trend hitting men’s clothing -- the short suit. Gone are the days of wearing shorts with your suit jacket being considered a faux pas. Pharrell Williams may have had a hand in pushing the trend when he showed up to this year’s Academy Awards donning tuxedo shorts. The news is great for men who, until recently, were stuck wearing pants all summer long with their suit jackets. An expert from Suitsupply, located at Scottsdale Quarter, walks us through how men can pull off this look.

Makutu's Island

Makutu's Island, one of Arizona’s largest indoor play places, has completed its renovations and is now open to the public. More than a half a million dollars were invested in new features and safety upgrades to the 20,000-square-foot standalone building located at 6919 W. Ray Rd., just east of I-10 in Chandler, since the husband and wife owners, Kiran Bapatla and Kiran Vedantam, purchased the longtime family-fun center in May.

While Makutu’s Island is celebrating a soft opening now, a formal grand re-opening will take place in August.
