Drawing for Saturday’s Powerball jackpot: $267M | www.ajc.com

What would you do with a multi-million jackpot?

The Powerball jackpot has rolled over 15 times since Aug. 5 and will reach an estimated $267 million for Saturday’s 11 p.m. drawing.

Georgia is one of 44 states, in addition to Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, involved in the multi-state Powerball drawing.

The drawing’s last winning ticket was for a $110 million jackpot and it was sold in California. The jackpot has rolled over on Wednesdays and Saturdays 15 times since Aug. 5.

If you’re lucky enough to beat the odds of winning the jackpot (1:175 million), you’ll get the option of a one-time cash payout of about $169 million or an annuity option that pays the jackpot in 30 graduated payments over a 29-year period.

Players will pay $2 for a ticket or $3, which adds a Power play option that multiplies winnings 2 to 5 times with the exception of the jackpot.

The Salsa Party of the Year on the Greenway With Jenna & Luis and Orquesta SCC | Vanessa Alamo

It is a FREE and great opportunity to meet new people while working out! Hosted by Celebrity Series of Boston, "Let's Dance/Bailemos Boston" is a fun-filled, family event encouraging individuals of all ages and dance backgrounds to join talented musicians for five consecutive nights under the city lights. The weekend began with the latin rhythms of Eguie Castrillo & His Orchestra and ended with a bang on Sunday night with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks' swing music. "Let's Dance/Bailemos Boston" commenced each night with a public (and did I mention FREE) group dance lesson related to that night's theme. Immediately following the dance lesson, the public enjoyed the summer night dancing to live music and meeting other dance fanatics within the greater Boston area.

Will Opening Cuba to Tourism Hurt Puerto Rico? | Travel + Leisure

Soon after Pope Francis landed in Cuba last weekend, he urged the U.S. and Cuban governments to further reconcile. “We have witnessed an event which filled us with hope: the process of normalizing relations between two peoples following years of estrangement,” the pontiff said.

President Obama already relaxed the 55-year-old Cuban embargo and announced last week a raft of other measures intending to strengthen economic ties between the two countries. But, the U.S.-Cuba rapprochement has some practical implications that go far beyond geopolitics.

Learn how to spin, scratch, repeat at this DJ retreat in Puerto Rico – LA Times

You'll be schooled by pros at DJ Dispensary who'll lead serious sessions on theory and demonstration, and introduce you to how equipment works. Guests also receive daily teaching sessions in group and one-on-one settings.

And then it's your big moment: You perform solo what you've learned during a sunset spin session. And you'll take home a recording of your original set too.

The retreat runs from Oct. 1 to 4 and costs $350 a night.

If you can tear yourself away from the spinning groove, there's lots to do on this eco-friendly island about eight miles off the coast of the Puerto Rican mainland. The star here is Bioluminescent Bay, which glows with microscopic plankton. You can see it all during nighttime guided kayaking trips.

Snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, hiking and other activities also are available during your island stay.

Snake Eyez Finishes Second for Second Straight Week

The Capcom Pro Tour descended on the island of Puerto Rico for First Attack 2015, drawing some of America’s best Ultra Street Fighter IV competitors as well as a few big international names. Du “Liquid NuckleDu” Dang, the current leader among Americans in points on the CPT, Darryl “Snake Eyez” Lewis, Red Bull Athlete, and Seonwoo “Infiltration” Lee are coming off of recent impressive performances. NuckleDu and Snake Eyez obviously want to cement themselves in the top 32, while the rest of the First Attack field hopes to break in. Meanwhile, Infiltration, who has already qualified and is second overall in points, continues to enter events to stay sharp, although some believe he may be gatekeeping as he continues to horde CPT points.
