‘Charlie Says’ Review: The “Manson Girls” Get A Dim Spotlight [Tribeca]

In the 50 years since the Manson Family committed the brutal murders that shook the nation, the cult and its infamous leader Charles Manson has never really left the public consciousness. And this year, the number of movies attempting to decrypt the notorious Manson and his all-consuming influence has ramped up, with everything from shockingly offensive horror films to star-studded Quentin Tarantino dramas taking on the cult leader. But what about the women who were under Manson’s thrall? Charl...

How we made Parks and Recreation, by Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman and Mike Schur

‘Ron is based on a real person: a libertarian with a kick-ass moustache who hates government but loves red meat, hunting and woodwork’Mike Schur and I worked together at Saturday Night Live; he wrote Leslie with me in mind. She was this optimistic, determined person with very little power but big aspirations. She evolved over time, but the idea of this person who was motivated by the hopeful spirit of the government employee, and how one can stay inspired when they keep getting knocked around – ...

A cautionary tale on why we background check employees

Into the pharaoh's chamber: how I fell in love with ancient Egypt

The Next Must-Have Accessory Isn't Shoes Or A Bag, It's High-End Reusable Straws

Straws are undeniably chic. Not only do they keep our lipstick in tact and make our cheekbones look (slightly) more like Naomi Campbell’s, they allow us to slurp our morning coffee at about twice the rate we otherwise might. A quicker caffeine intake means more energy means getting shit done. But single-use plastic straws, which cities like New York, Miami Beach, and Oakland are pledging to fully ban in the coming years, are suddenly so out of fashion they might as well be Crocs. Worn unironica...

Comment on how to hard-boil an egg by Leslie

Does keeping them in the ice water after boiling prevent that ‘grey ick’ I was always taught was prevented by starting in cold water? And why on earth if you are boiling water would it matter if you started with ‘fridge cold’ water?

Seven Ways to Feel More in Control of Your Life

Leslie and Josh came to therapy to talk about their son’s problems in school. But it soon became apparent that they had a different problem altogether—one common to working parents. Their daily routine included a dizzying array of activities and responsibilities that kept them constantly stressed. Getting their kids out the door to school was an ordeal, involving much haranguing and eating on the run. After working long hours, they arrived home to a laundry list of other duties. Constant interr...

Leslie Reynaga throws no-hitter in Saugus softball’s win over Valencia

VALENCIA >> Maybe it was the excitement of having won at Valencia for the first time since 2014. Maybe it was the reality of Saugus’ best start to Foothill League play in three years. Maybe it was because Valencia regularly managed to get on base, thwarted only by pitcher Leslie Reynaga’s steely resolve. Whatever the case, in the aftermath of Saugus’ 4-1 win over Valencia on Thursday, no one in the Centurions’ huddle seemed aware of what Reynaga had accomplished. “By the way,” said Jerome Castan...

Comment on thick, chewy granola bars by Leslie

Just made these for my daughter in law to eat while she is nursing. A doubles batch was gone in a week. I made them as stated and put them in the fridge before cutting them. Only used 1/4 c of sugar and the maple syrup and they were sweet enough.

Comment on black bean soup + toasted cumin seed crema by Leslie

I dialed back the liquid to six cups and used chicken broth vs. water. I’m glad I did. I doubled the chipotle peppers. Also worked well for us. The dried beans cooked perfectly in my Instant Pot. 30 minutes on high pressure, 25 minute natural release. Blending 1/3 the soup really brought it together. The cumin crema was fabulous. I topped our servings with avocado slices, as well as the crema. It was wonderful. My husband asked me to make it again.

‘Parks and Recreation’ Could Finally Be Getting The Revival We’ve All Dreamed Of

This is more amazing than 5,000 candles in the wind Over the weekend PaleyFest took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, where the Parks and Recreation cast reunited for the first time since the show ended back in 2015. During their panel we learned that Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) would probably endorse two 2020 presidential candidates in particular — one of whom was actually the Indiana Parks and Rec Official of the Year, which is almost too perfect. I think it’s fair to say Buttig...

Comment on almond raspberry layer cake by Leslie

My friend and I are testing a few different almond cake recipes for my wedding. We tried this one, and liked it a lot (love the full almond flavor from the paste– we used an almond oil flavoring rather than an alcohol-based extract, and it was very potent, but not overpowering). One question- we expected it to be a bit fluffier/lighter. We did not beat the egg whites before folding in. Was this wrong? Would whisking help? Thanks!

97-Year-Old Philosopher Ponders the Meaning of Life: “What Is the Point of It All?”

If you’ve sat by the bedside of a dying friend or relative, or recovered from a terminal illness yourself, you may know too well: the concerns of yesterday—career anxieties, political high stakes, personal grudges—can slip away into the rear view, becoming smaller and more meaningless as hours pass into final days. What takes their place? Maybe a savoring of the moment, maybe regrets over moments not savored, maybe a growing acknowledgment that gratitude matters more than being right. Maybe...

Director Jason Reitman recently announced that he would be following in his father Ivan Reitman‘s footsteps by directing a Ghostbusters sequel that would take place decades after the original movies in the franchise.
