South Austin Italian Spot Milano Cafe Celebrates 10 Years
An authentic meal in a tucked-away Southwest Parkway strip mall
Food Column  January 24, 2019, by Lauren Jones
"...Milano Cafe's tucked-away spot in a Southwest Park­way strip mall is often blurred by whirring rush-hour traffic, so it may not be an obvious choice for an authentic Italian meal, but it should be. Co-owner Sami Demi draws inspiration from the flavors of central and southern Italy, and since opening Milano Cafe in April of 2009, he's been serving up comfort food with a side of old country charm and quality service..."

Second Act
Lean In meets The Secret of My Success in workplace rom-com
Film Review  January 4, 2019, by Marc Savlov
"...Inoffensive and unremarkable, Second Act is culled from the remainder bin of late-Nineties, early-Aughts hidden identity/wish fulfillment rom-coms along the lines of Lopez’s Maid in Manhattan. For a certain segment of the moviegoing audience this might well feel like cinematic comfort food, but for others it will bring to mind older but far better films that have withstood the test of time, albeit with freakishly dated hairstyles..."

Delicious and Nurturing Indian Fare at a South Austin Strip Mall
Asiana Indian Cuisine has something for every palate
Food Story  January 3, 2019, by Emily Beyda
"...There are a few quirks here – dishes that, while less familiar within the classic Americanized South Indian repertoire, embody the same spirit: indulgently layered, slow-cooked, and sweet, redolent of spices and cream. There's the perennially popular cauliflower 65 (also available in a chicken iteration) – a sort of South Indian take on kung pao cauliflower, breaded and fried and served in a spicy sauce – or the Indian spring rolls, apparently modeled on a Kolkata street food classic..."

Texas Book Festival 2018: Meet the Indie Next Authors
Faves R.O. Kwon, Tommy Orange, and Nicole Chung get personal
DAILY Arts  October 28, 2018, by Rosalind Faires
"...Their books might not have a great deal in common on the surface – The Incendiaries follows two college students who wrestle with radicalization and loss of faith, There There is a multi-perspective novel about Native Americans living in Oakland, and All You Can Ever Know charts its author’s experience as a transracial adoptee – but Depp deftly found common ground for the panelists with questions about the intimate nature of their work, the way all three books play with structure, and the experiences Kwon, Orange, and Chung share as nonwhite authors surrounded by a very white literary canon. Kwon recounted her youthful lightbulb moment, realizing that she didn’t have to have white protagonists: “Oh, Korean food can be in a book!” Orange admitted that working on something as personal as There There was scary, but that he took comfort in the fact that “the people close to [him] know what’s true.” Chung shared her worries resulting from the fact that “scarcity is the norm” – there are so few Korean-American memorists or stories about and by transracial adoptees, and she wants to be clear that she is sharing her own specific experience, not speaking for everyone...."

I Think We're Alone Now
Dinklage and Fanning find dry humor at the end of the world
Film Review  September 21, 2018, by Danielle White
"...What is it that primes us to be so fascinated by “end of the world” narratives? Are we all pining that badly to be relieved of our shitty jobs and responsibilities? To trade in our daily commute for hunting zombies, siphoning gas, and foraging for food? Not that that’s entirely the situation in I Think We’re Alone Now. Del (Dinklage) is the only survivor in his town of 1,600; everyone else just sort of dropped dead one afternoon while he was sleeping..."

Crisis Pregnancy Centers: Money for Nothing
Despite unprecedented taxpayer investment, state-funded CPCs deliver few services
News Story  July 19, 2018, by Mary Tuma
"...Meanwhile, funding toward the A2A program has shown a heavy investment in anti-choice persuasion rather than tangible services, let alone legitimate health care. While proponents of the program enjoy touting its ostensibly myriad services for women – baby and maternity clothes, childbirth and parenting classes, food pantries – to justify its existence, the overwhelming bulk of services provided by state-funded CPCs fall under "counsel time," as records obtained by the Chronicle under a public information request from the Health and Human Ser­vices Commission show..."
