20 Cupid-Approved Valentine's Day Gifts for Each Love Language
Photo: Scouted/The Daily Beast/Retailers.Valentine's Day gifts can be tricky when it comes to gifting your S.O. because while it's still considered a "Hallmark Holiday," there's still an unspoken expectation that some degree of sentimentality should be taken into account. Dr. Gary Chapman's famed book The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts has long been touted as a relationship bible of sorts, and is predicated on the author's theory that each person expresses and perceives love and affection in romantic relationships with one of five love languages—words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch.Of course, the book's intention is to help couples improve their communication styles and habits with their partner—not function as an unofficial gift guide for couples—but the iconic relationship book can also be used off-label to help guide you to a better gift for your partner too—yes, even if their prescribed love language isn't receiving gifts. Even if you haven't read the seminal book. yet, you can still glean some thoughtful insights to help you find a more meaningful gift for your Valentine based on the language they most closely identify with (if you or they don't already know, you can take the official love language quiz here to find out.)Read more at The Daily Beast.

Was a Notorious Mobster Behind This ‘Infamous’ Pittsburgh Heist?
Photo Illustration by Thomas Levinson/The Daily Beast/Post-Gazette; GettyIt was March 17, 1982—St. Patrick’s Day—and James Powers was in the middle of his shift at the Purolator armored truck terminal in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he worked as a security guard.At about 11:30 p.m., two men wearing trench coats, dark felt hats, and aviator sunglasses ducked under a garage door as a truck left the depot to make a delivery. The men, one white and one Black, were roughly six feet tall and each carried a walkie-talkie. Once inside, they approached Powers, who was the only guard on-site that night, and introduced themselves as FBI agents while flashing their credentials.The pair told Powers, 54, that the FBI had received a tip warning that the facility was going to be robbed. And that’s when they did exactly that.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip? Send it to The Daily Beast here

My Five Favorite Meals: Chef Todd Rogers
Pearl HotelTodd Rogers is the loftily titled director of culinary operations at the Pearl Hotel in Rosemary Beach, Florida. But he’s the real deal as a chef and lights up with excitement when he’s in the kitchen. He’s classically trained—usually the necessary foundation, it seems, to be a complete maverick. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and wound up crisscrossing the South, cooking and leading crack kitchen crews in several of the region’s top resorts.“I’m originally from West Virginia. My grandparents had a farm and I got into food early,” Rogers says. “My dad participated in FFA [Future Farmers of America], so I did too. As a kid I grew up working with my grandpa, and cooking with my grandma, making jams and jellies and getting the eggs out of the chicken coops. Grandpa harvested the honey without a bee suit—I always stayed away from that. But it was an incredible way to grow up, very close to the earth. I knew that food didn’t come from the grocery store, it didn’t come out of a box, it came from the farm.”At only 29, he became executive chef at the Houston Ritz-Carlton, additionally remarkable because “they only hired French and German chefs. They were very snobbish about thinking that Americans didn’t know how to cook.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

My Five Favorite Meals: Ravi DeRossi
An Rong Xu/Eric Medsker.To say that Ravi DeRossi took a circuitous route to running a large empire of bars and restaurants, would be understating his journey.Born in America to Indian immigrants, he worked long shifts, seven days a week in the family’s deli in Denver, Colorado. This is where he says he learned self-discipline, and, perhaps most usefully later, how to retain an objectivity about a business created from passion.DeRossi really wanted to be an artist, and for a while he was under the expansive and nurturing wing of the Greek abstract painter Igor Gorsky, who he met when Gorsky threw a punch at him. He credits Gorsky, with whom he became close friends, for teaching him how to think abstractly, which has greatly served him as he built his company, Overthrow Hospitality, and co-founded the chain of award-winning Death & Co bars.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Joni Mitchell Removes Her Songs From Spotify Over Joe Rogan’s Vaccine Disinfo
Samuel Corum/GettyJoni Mitchell announced late Friday that she had requested all her music be removed from Spotify over disinformation about coronavirus vaccines on the streaming service, particularly Joe Rogan’s podcast. The singer, whose hits include “Big Yellow Taxi,” “A Case of You,” and “California,” wrote in a statement: “I’ve decided to remove all my music from Spotify. Irresponsible people are spreading lies that are costing people their lives. I stand in solidarity with Neil Young and the global scientific and medical communities on this issue.” The administrator of Mitchell’s song catalogue, Reservoir Media, did not immediately respond to a question about whether it would go along with her request. The move comes after Neil Young, who shares a manager with Mitchell, removed all his music from Spotify for the same reason. Both Young and Mitchell cited an open letter from over 200 doctors decrying disinformation and vaccine hesitancy peddled on The Joe Rogan Experience, the most popular podcast in the world. Spotify inked a $100 million deal with Rogan for exclusive distribution rights to his show.Read more at The Daily Beast.
