Cristela Alonzo Wants to Make America Laugh — One day in 1987, an 8-year-old girl named Cristela Alonzo was sent to the principal's office at her elementary school in San Juan, Tex. Ordinarily a good student and a teacher-pleaser, she felt something welling up inside her that day that could not be contained.

Connie Britton Interview - Connie Britton on Motherhood and Plastic Surgery - Redbook — "I would love to be doing this with a partner, and I want Yoby to have a father figure. But I also know that putting that kind of pressure on myself or on a relationship would be disastrous. It's funny-my married friends tell me all the time, 'What you have is so much easier.'

Eugenie Bouchard Could Be Tennis’s Next Big Shot — The sun was just starting to fade on the evening of Aug. 5 when Eugenie Bouchard, the eighth-ranked women's tennis player in the world, walked onto center court at the Rogers Cup tournament in Montreal. Immediately the audience rose to its feet and roared.

Glamour Exclusive: — Everyone knew Geena Rocero was a model, but they had no idea she was transgender-and had taken hormones and had surgery to be the gorgeous woman they admired. In a Glamour exclusive, she tells Susan Dominus why she risked her dream career to go public.

Reflections on Witnessing Heroin Use Up Close — After the New York Times Magazine published my article " Addict. Informant. Mother. " last week, a portrait of Ann, a heroin addict, I heard one question more than any other: Were you actually in the bathroom with her? The question referred to a scene in which Ann went into a bathroom at a grocery store and injected herself with heroin.

Addict. Informant. Mother. — One day last summer, Ann and her husband, Tom, walked two and a half hours to reach Hazleton, a onetime mining town in eastern Pennsylvania. They had lived there until July, when they were evicted and moved in with Ann's mother in Sugarloaf, a more affluent township nearby.

The Mystery of 18 Twitching Teenagers in Le Roy — Before the media vans took over Main Street, before the environmental testers came to dig at the soil, before the doctor came to take blood, before strangers started knocking on doors and asking question after question, Katie Krautwurst, a high-school cheerleader from Le Roy, N.Y., woke up from a nap.

The Couples Therapy Expert Esther Perel Takes On Sex and Sexuality — On the subject of sex, a subject that makes so many stammer, clam up or crack wise, Esther Perel, a couples therapist and author, is uncommonly eloquent, even rhapsodic. That particular rhetorical gift is apparently in high demand: Last July, Ms. Perel gave an opening talk at Summit Outside, a three-day meeting of 900 entrepreneurs and creative types held on Powder Mountain in Eden, Utah.

Magnus Carlsen, Chess Champion: ‘My Moves Speak For Themselves’ — You became the world chess champion after a win in November. How did you go about training for the big match? The most important thing to study is opening theory, but I also study the latest trends to try to stay ahead, discovering new schemes and doing tactical exercises.

The Ghost Train That Changed Lac-Mégantic Forever — At close to a quarter after 1 on the morning of July 6, Rachel Longpré woke up: Something was wrong. She watched through her bedroom window as an unlit train sped by, sparks flying at the tracks.
