TwitterEmailPhotograph: Art Streiber AUGUST FacebookTwitterEmailMidway through In the Dream House, her memoir about an abusive relationship with a former girlfriend, Carmen Maria Machado makes a painful observation: "Putting language to something for which you have no language is no easy feat. " She #x27;s referring to Adam #x27;s job in Genesis of naming the animals, but she #x27;s also confronting the core challenge of her book. Domestic abuse in queer relationships is rarely written about when your love is taboo, so are its violences. Machado must create a new tongue.No other writer is better suited. The author #x27;s previous book, Her Body and Other Parties, is a collection of short stories so effortlessly wide ranging they pivot from fantasy to romance to humor in the blink of an eye. Machado can always find the words to convey what she means, even when she #x27;s using language in ways it #x27;s never been used before. She is a master of bending genre tropes to her whims painting family dramas and domestic microagressions as the horror tales they are, demonstrating women #x27;s invisibility by literally making them see through. (FX is currently developing the National Book Award nominated book into a Black Mirror style anthology series.) She uses the language of genre to tell stories genre books often ignore. It s easy to call what she does speculative fiction, this generation #x27;s Angela Carter, but hers is a genre unto itself.
A report from the Oregon Health and Science University shed light on the potential dangers of neurotoxic chemicals (toxins destructive to nerve tissue), which are found in plants used as the primary nutrients for impoverished and undernourished people. People can be affected by different plant toxins based on factors like age, sex, and genetics; though no factors create greater risk than chronic malnutrition. Plants that cause neurotoxic disorders when they are regularly consumed are far more dangerous to those living in poverty. Climate change and many other factors reduce the number of food sources for these people, thus potentially toxic plants are the only options available. The report highlights three major plant foods.
Addressing the graduating students on the occasion, Dr. K Sivan, ISRO, Chairman said, I am an alumni of IIT Bombay and from my own personal experience, I can say that IITs are the holy grail of technical education in India. And I am sure that you all will continue the glorious tradition of Delhi as well as that of IIT ans who have excelled in every field they have worked. He added, When I graduated, more than 3 decades back, the job scenario was not as vibrant as today. Area of specialization limited the career options. Today, the options are many. There is an added volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity about the global economy. However, you all are much smarter and aware about these scenarios than the older generations. Nevertheless, remember, you are unlikely to fall into your dream career or create a successful business simply by wishing for it. Here you have to be pragmatic in your approach and learn from the experience of the older generation. Keep in mind that, there is only one life and there are many career options. You all need to identify your passion amp; natural talent and align your career. Choose an industry that reflects your passion and interests.

Being one of the best performances of his career, Leonardo DiCaprio s turn as Rick Dalton in Quentin Tarantino s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is filled with wonderfully memorable moments but unquestionably one of the best is the character s rage fueled trailer freak out. The veteran actor has a bad day while filming the pilot for the new western television show Lancer, forgetting his lines and embarrassing himself, and he performs a nice bit of self flagellation during a break from set.It winds up being a crucial moment in Rick Dalton s arc, as it turns out to be a really turning point for him but that just makes it all the more shocking to learn that it was a sequence that wasn t originally in the script, and was both created during production and totally improvised on the day.
