The King Tut's Tomb Discovery Experience exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Sciece Photo: Jef Rouner Photo: Jef RounerOne hundred years ago, British archeologist Howard Carter discovered the intact tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun in Egypt's Valley of the Kings. The Houston Museum of Natural Science is celebrating that anniversary with an immersive exhibit designed to put visitors directly inside the tomb itself. This painstaking attention to detail gives the exhibit a somewhat jumbled look, but also makes entering the space feel like a moment of discovery. True to the museum’s trend of incorporating multimedia, King Tut’s Tomb is full of video presentations and other technological novelties.

Rochelle Garza, Democratic candidate for attorney general, may or not enjoy a good joke. As attorney general, Garza would withdraw Paxton’s suit against the federal government order that’s meant to protect hospitals that provide lifesaving care to women experiencing miscarriages or other complications. Restoring abortion rights, albeit important, is far from the only issue a Texas AG needs to engage; Garza seems to be aware of that. Garza, who would be the first Latina attorney general in Texas history, has proved to be a smart, effective campaigner. Texas remains a fervid-red state, to be sure, but a vote for Paxton, to be blunt about it, is an affront to the people of Texas.5 months ago Houston Chronicle
But it certainly didn't hurt that, as a child growing up in southwest Houston, there was an annual Jewish book fair where Gonzales could explore her burgeoning passion. That's why sharing "J is for Janucá," her debut as a picture book illustrator, at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center during the 50th Annual Ann and Stephen Kaufman Jewish Book & Arts Festival Sunday had a surreal quality to it. "It exposes a lot of people to the Jewish community, as well as (the other way around). Dozens of parents and children attended Sunday for Oliver Lapin Family Day, which featured readings from several children's book authors and arts and crafts stations for the children. The Jewish Community Center doled out buñuelos, fried Latin American delicacies popular around the holidays, and freshly squeezed orange juice to accompany her reading.5 months ago Houston Chronicle
Body camera footage reviewed by investigators shows Brewer repeatedly told Myers to “get on the ground” before shooting him, while Deputy Mark Suchy gave conflicting commands to “put your hands up now.” Seconds later, Brewer shot Myers with one round. Brewer then discharged his personal weapon at too close of a distance and shot Myers in the chest, a lethal force zone. Proper training would have provided critical information about the proper distance to deploy the round and the proper target zone on a person. Before coming to Kansas, Brewer worked in Texas where he was given the beanbag ammunition used the evening of Myers’ death. Kristina Myers said she has been subpoenaed, adding she hopes to be allowed to watch the trial after her testimony.5 months ago Houston Chronicle
Alas, Josh Jacobs ran over, through, and around the Texans defense in three second half Raider touchdown drives, and that was it. The Raiders righted their ship to move to 2-4, and the Texans fell to 1-4-1.There were winners and losers on Sunday, in that game and a few around the league. Pierce is the best thing the Texans have going offensively and Lovie Smith made it clear this week that he is not going to be afraid to use him. The biggest story this past week was the Niners trading four draft picks to the Panthers for RB Christian McCaffrey. Given the fact that the Texans' front seven is largely made up of journeyman veterans and low level draft picks, this probably won't improve any time soon.5 months ago Houston Press
Kent, a former ballerina with American Ballet Theatre, and most recently artistic director of The Washington Ballet will be working with longtime Artistic Director Stanton Welch in a collaboration that will free Welch up to choreograph more ballets as Houston Ballet continues its impressive growth. "Stanton and I met when American Ballet Theatre was on tour in Seattle just about a week after the attacks on 9/11. In a Houston Ballet press release, Welch stated: "I am thrilled to announce that Julie Kent will be joining Houston Ballet as our first ever co-artistic director. Kent's employment history is impressive: the longest-serving ballerina in the American Ballet Theatre, she danced in more than 100 ballets working with, among others, George Balanchine, Jerome Robbin, Jiri Kylia and former Houston Ballet Artistic Director Ben Stevenson. She has been artistic director of The Washington Ballet since 2016 where she has commissioned 26 world premieres.5 months ago Houston Press
