40 years after its release, John Carpenter’s Halloween is actually even more terrifying today than it was back in 1978. That’s not just because of Carpenter’s hypnotic score, his patient yet brutal direction, and Jamie Lee Curtis’ iconic performance, to name but a few of its endless list of traits. Instead, it is because of Mike Myers. Or, more specifically, the randomness of Mike Myers’ violent acts. Because, in 2018, mass shootings and random acts of violence and terror are now depressingly regular occurrences. The timeliness of "Halloween" and Mike Myers was something that co-writer and director David Gordon Green was very much aware of, especially as he was just coming off "Stronger" with Jake Gyllenhaal, which is about the Boston Marathon bombings. “That really got me in the head space of the horrific nature of these random acts of terror,” Green recently admitted to me over the phone. “I got to … [Read more...] about Why making ‘Halloween’ in 2018 was such a tricky process

Women’s health advocates say the high percentage of providers seeing few, if any, clients is “alarming.” by Sophie Novack Tue, Oct 16, 2018 at 3:24 pm CST For years, the Texas health agency has claimed that its Healthy Texas Women program is thriving. After Planned Parenthood was booted out in 2013, state officials cobbled together a new network of women’s health providers, which they say is robust and growing. But records obtained by the Observer show that Texas has failed to fill the gap left by Planned Parenthood and other established family planning providers, leaving many women with inadequate access to contraception and preventive screenings. Almost half of the approximately 5,400 providers in Healthy Texas Women didn’t see a single patient in the program in fiscal year 2017, according to data from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). Of the 2,900 providers that did see patients, more than 700 saw just a single person. … [Read more...] about Without Planned Parenthood, Almost Half the Providers in Texas’ Women’s Health Program Saw No Patients
