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?

Win a 'big' step to get Horns to Dance

NORMAN, Okla. - Texas was getting desperate, and the Longhorns finally got the win they needed. Dylan Osetkowski scored 21 points, Texas slowed national scoring leader Trae Young, and the Longhorns beat No. 23 Oklahoma 77-66 on Saturday to extend the Sooners' losing streak to five games. Texas (16-11, 6-8 Big 12) needed the win to boost its NCAA Tournament résumé after losing three straight. "It's big," Texas coach Shaka Smart said. "I told our guys we were fighting for our NCAA Tournament lives. It's not to say it's fighting-for-your-life life and death, but when you're a basketball player or a basketball coach, it can feel that way." Young, a freshman point guard, scored 26 points on 7-for- 21 shooting.

NASCAR's youth brigade will lead the charge in today's Daytona 500

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Never before has one race displayed NASCAR's rapidly changing look more than this year's Daytona 500. Three drivers under age 25 will start in the first two rows, new rules will make the cars difficult to drive and NASCAR's longtime most popular driver will watch from the sidelines. NASCAR begins its season Sunday with the 60th running of "The Great American Race" and Alex Bowman on the pole. Who? Well, the guy who got Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s coveted seat at Hendrick Motorsports when concussions forced the superstar to retire. Bowman is 24 and had washed out of NASCAR once before when he got the call to help during Earnhardt's absence.

Conjoined twin girls separated at Texas Children's

Houston doctors have successfully separated two identical twin girls conjoined at their chest and abdomen, a procedure so complex it required a multidisciplinary team of 75 staffers from eight specialties. During a delicate seven-hour operation on Jan. 13, Texas Children's surgeons divided 13-month-old Anna and Hope Richards, who shared their chest wall, lining of the heart, diaphragm and liver. In addition, they had a large blood vessel connecting their hearts. "We've thought about and prayed for this day for almost two years," Jill Richards, the girls' mom, said in a statement. "It's an indescribable feeling to look at our girls in two separate beds.

After Harvey, slight majority still opposes more taxes for flood control projects, survey says

Houston area residents overwhelmingly support construction of a third west side reservoir, buyouts of vulnerable homes and other steps to protect lives and property from floods - yet slightly fewer than half are willing to pay for such measures through higher taxes, according to a survey released Monday. Lopsided majorities of those surveyed expressed support for almost all the ideas state and local officials are discussing, including stricter building codes and development rules, to limit the effects of increasingly frequent and intense floods. And with the pain inflicted by Harvey still fresh in the public's mind, 46 percent said they would be willing to pay higher property taxes for protection measures.

The radical - but gentle - faith of Mister Rogers

Americans seem to love sharing myths about Fred Rogers, the friendly neighbor known the world over as Mister Rogers. Consider the one about how he wore cardigans to cover up his tattoos (false). Or the one about how he was an ordained Presbyterian minister. That one is true - he graduated from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 1963 - and it's far more foundational to Rogers's legacy than you might think. Rogers was a man defined by his Christian faith, and the message that he taught every day on his beloved children's show was shaped by it. "If Protestants had saints," Jonathan Merritt wrote at the Atlantic, "Mister Rogers might already have been canonized.
