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?

Previewing week 3 around the NFL

AFC SOUTH GAME TO WATCH Seahawks at Titans 3:25 p.m. Sunday This interconference matchup appeals to Houston fans as the Titans visit next week. Each team is 1-1 and is coming off vastly different Week 2 victories. The Seahawks scraped past the 49ers in a dull game, while the Titans blasted the Jaguars in Jacksonville. And there's the Marcus Mariota-Russell Wilson QB matchup that bears watching. REPUS BOWL Browns at Colts noon What's the "Repus Bowl"? Uh, that's "super" spelled backward. These two 0-2 teams meet in what should be a slogfest. The Browns - by their low standards - have been somewhat competitive, while the Colts still look lost without Andrew Luck. Unless you're a glutton for punishment, pass on this game.

Shadow of Harvey hangs over Jewish congregation as High Holidays begin

From their makeshift temple, a phalanx of displaced Jews will at sunset Thursday march toward their tormentor. The hundreds-strong crowd will cast challah bread and their sins into the slow-moving body that robbed them of their homes and security. There, on the bank of the Brays Bayou, the teary-eyed faithful from the water-damaged United Orthodox Synagogues will reflect on the lessons of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and, now, Harvey. The tashlich ceremony, as it's called, symbolizes the cleansing of the spirit during Rosh Hashanah, marking the Jewish Year 5778 that started Wednesday at sunset. The ritual has taken on new meaning after Hurricane Harvey.

Anxiety swirls after 200 residents ordered to leave flood-damaged high-apartment complex

Arnold Talbert considers his Memorial Drive apartment building safe. Military flags still adorn the walls of his one-bedroom unit, the hallways outside are still clean and free of clutter, and a pinkish pool raft still leaned Tuesday on the 10th-floor balcony of the housing complex for low-income, disabled and elderly Houstonians just northwest of downtown. Talbert, 58, loves the place. He renewed his one-year lease in July. Now, he said he is afraid he won't be allowed back into his home. On Monday, the nearly 200 residents of the public housing complex at 2100 Memorial Drive were ordered to vacate the property by Saturday, a move city officials said was necessary to evaluate the safety of the building in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

'It's not optional': faith leaders unite for Harvey recovery

Michael Spooner's house was the last one in his neighborhood above water. He watched the floodwaters on his street rise and drain away once, then twice, before letting himself think maybe his family had escaped the worst of Hurricane Harvey. "All of sudden, it was in our yard," Spooner, the worship pastor at Rollingwood Fellowship in Baytown, said. "We couldn't get out." Spooner, his wife Jana and their 4-year-old daughter Abigail waded out of their neighborhood through waist-deep water - their dog in her arms and Abigail on Spooner's shoulders - to Rollingwood, where they lived for a week after their house took on 2 feet of water during Hurricane Harvey.

Firefighter dies in crash while driving to help Harvey flood victim

Houston firefighter Brian Sumrall, described by friends and co-workers as "an amazing person" on Sunday, was in the midst of doing what set him apart: helping others. He was traveling southbound on FM 770 about two miles from the rural town of Batson in a Kubota tractor when he was hit from the rear by a Chevrolet pickup driven by Joe Patton, 35, of Hull. Sumrall, 39, was ejected from the tractor and died at the scene. Patton suffered minor injuries. According to Chief Fred Yust with Batson Fire Department, Sumrall's last act was in service to his community. He was on his way to load hay into the vehicle of a cattle owner impacted by Hurricane Harvey flooding. "Brian would have done anything for anybody.
