The Houston SPCA's Wildlife Center of Texas , a Bayou City-based wildlife rehabilitation center, rescued a nestling bald eagle from a nest in Webster on Thursday. The eaglet—nicknamed Boots by Paul White, the owner of the property where the eagles are located— was rescued after nest cam footage showed the baby bird struggling to sit up and move around the nest, which impaired his chances for survival. "Boots was brought back to the center for rehabilitation due to his poor condition," a Facebook post from the organization read, which also included a photo of Boots at the center. "He is extremely weak, but we are providing around the clock care, including warm fluids and nutritional supplements to try to help him pull through." Once Boots is more stable, the Houston SPCA said it plans to assess apparent deformities they found in his legs and feet. They thanked CenterPoint Energy who assisted in the rescue by providing a high lift bucket truck to help them reach the … [Read more...] about Houston SPCA Wildlife Center of Texas rescues nestling bald eagle in Webster

When Gavin Kaysen announced in March that he would leave his longtime position as Café Boulud ’s executive chef to open his own restaurant, plenty of people in the restaurant industry — and those who watch it — were surprised. As Daniel Boulud’s right-hand man, Mr. Kaysen was a player in one of the most successful restaurant empires in New York. But the bigger surprise was where Mr. Kaysen, 35, planned to open his restaurant, Merchant : not in Manhattan or Brooklyn but in Minneapolis, his hometown. A chef with no shortage of opportunities in New York had decided to leave. “I had some people ask me candidly, ‘Why? Why leave New York? Why move there?’ ” Mr. Kaysen said.

On a trip to New York about a decade ago, Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli stopped at ABC Carpet & Home in Manhattan. The store was among the first to stock ceramics from Astier de Villatte, the line the men co-founded in Paris in 1996. They were admiring how some of their dishes were displayed when a salesclerk told them the pieces were copies of those used by Marie Antoinette. “No, they’re not!” Mr. Pericoli, 52, recalled saying to the clerk, who was unaware that the men who seemed to be browsing had designed the plates. While the plates were not replicas of any belonging to the French queen, their look was informed by tastes of France’s former ruling class, at least loosely. In designing the ceramics, Mr. Pericoli said he and Mr. Astier de Villatte, 60, are inspired by “anything from the past, any period, starting from the Neolithic.” The two, who met after each had graduated from the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, drew on their time as students in creating the … [Read more...] about Are You an Astier Person?
