Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

Husband arrested in estranged wife?s 2015 beating death at Chinatown beauty school

Tuyet Tran was found bludgeoned to death at her Chinatown beauty school in 2015 in what police believed to be a shoddily-staged robbery and early on, Houston police suspected her husband was the culprit.

The salon at 10800 Bellaire Boulevard was ransacked, but Tran?s credits cards and cash were left untouched, according to court documents. Additionally, audio from nearby surveillance video suggested the fatal beating was drawn out ? rather than a quick hit.

It would be nearly four more years before Trang Vu, the Vietnamese born beautician?s husband who changed his name to Itani Losangel Milleni three months after her death, would be charged in her murder.

The 49-year-old truck driver, also from Vietnam, was arrested Friday morning while unloading his 18-wheeler trailer at a delivery stop in Bluffton, Indiana, said John Beeman, a supervisory inspector for the U.S. Marshals? Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force. He is being held at the Bluffton jail pending his extradition to Harris County, according to the Wells County Sheriff?s Office.

An arrest warrant under his new name accused Milleni of killing his beautician wife of 13 years as she sought to divorce him and take custody of their two children. The warrant was issued on April 16, court records show. The children were told of the criminal charge Monday night, authorities said.

The allegation that Milleni was responsible for slaying his estranged wife surfaced more than two years before his out-of-state arrest. The Minnesota-based Reliastar Life Insurance Company tried stopping Milleni from collecting her $275,000 life insurance policy because Houston investigators still considered him a suspect in her death, according to a 2017 federal lawsuit.

Easter extravaganza spotlights Czech cultural traditions

Parents and children with colorful baskets filtered into the Czech Center Museum in Houston Saturday afternoon for a day of Easter-themed activities.

Pryce Mahboub, 5, and Aubriel Mahboub, 8, made bunny ears out of bright pipe cleaners and tails out of cotton before settling at the egg dying table. Their favorite part of Easter?

?Candy,? Pryce said, while dunking a green-painted egg into blue dye.

?Eggs,? his sister Aubriel said.

Their parents Bri Gibson and Gabriel Mahboub, who recently relocated from New Mexico, searched for fun Easter events for their children and learned about the museum?s activities. The afternoon event, which expected more than 100 people, had attracted families who like Gibson and Mahoub had never been to the museum, which serves as a cultural home for the local Czech community.

Most children were in it for the free egg decorating and culminating Easter egg hunt.

Madhu Jayarman, 8, had her heart set on finding 21 eggs, beating her record last year of 20, she said after dunking three eggs into a deep blue dye. She decorated them with pink paint ? one with a smiley face, one with a sun that encompassed a deep crack, and another with an abstract blob, which she deemed ?the pink thing.?

Little did she know, she was taking part in a popular tradition of Czechia, or the Czech Republic.

Sandra Samolik, the museum?s development director, organized the event for the second year, aiming to bring people of all cultures to the museum to take part in a popular Czech tradition.

?Easter generally is a very important event for Czech people,? Samolik said, referencing the unique traditions that are sometimes unusual to those who...

Go, Dog. Go! 'Dog party' overruns downtown Houston

With robots from an international competition dominating the south side of downtown, thousands of dogs marked their turf on the north side with their playful barks echoing around Market Square Park.

An estimated 3,500 people and their dogs descended upon the park to play and socialize at the 8th annual Puppies for Breakfast festival, which is hosted by design agency Neue Creative, the Houston Downtown Management District and several other area animal partners.

?It?s not often you see these many dogs,? said Blanche Ragsdale, 63, who brought her Pomeranian dog Mr. Fox with her. ?It?s really fun for me to see all these breeds.?

Ragsdale rescued Mr. Fox eight years ago. She said Mr. Fox was a little overwhelmed by all the dogs, but he rested with her on a bench ? tongue all the way out in the sun.

Dogs came in and out of the park, splashing in the shallow fountains. The dog run overflowed with canines and owners playing together.

A dog trick show had dogs jumping through arm hoops or barking out the answers to math problems. The show was performed by local dog training company Unstoppable K9?s, who try to show off how once-aggressive rescued dogs can be taught

Other dogs came in their best outfits, including pink tutus and denim jackets. Lynzee Soliz, 22, and her partner Evan Mendez, 27, brought their ?goofy? dog Baddle wearing a flamingo hat, Hawaiian shirt, swim trucks and pineapple socks.

?He?s there more for the people than the dogs,? Soliz said, laughing.

Hector Garcia, who owns Neue Creative, created Puppies for Breakfast in 2010 by inviting around 30 friends and their dogs to breakfast in his backyard. He held the first festival in 2012 at their offices, and...
