"Anyone who’s grown up in a family restaurant knows that everything revolves around 'the restaurant.' You have to cut vacations short, reply 'no' to wedding invitations and drive through blizzards to make sure the kitchen pipes haven’t burst. But you’re also eternally grateful to the restaurant. It’s provided you a livelihood: shelter, food, and in my case, a college education. The loyalty I have to Italian food runs deep.

"When many of us are feeling a bit nostalgic, we eat comfort food. It’s the food that reminds us we’re loved and a part of something bigger. In those moments, I eat kubideh, ghormeh sabzi or simply noon-o-paneer. But a hearty bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, made with my dad’s tomato sauce, works just as well. My people may not have been cooking pasta for centuries, but Italian food still feels like home."

"The family settings in the spots grew out of consumer research indicating that Latina mothers like to 'organize sessions for bonding, like eating dinner together or going to the park,' said Sivonne Davis, Kool-Aid senior brand manager.
"Depictions of family get-togethers appeal to Latino parents 'who are really worried about how fast-paced the American way of life is today, and that kids could be growing up too fast and being pulled away from home,' said Ms. Davis.

"This ideal mix of economic gains while being with family - when compared with the recession-struck US and its chain of immigration pains - makes the pastures at home, temptingly green. 'America is soon going to be importing innovation from India and China. We are now exporting all that goodness,'" says Vivek Wadhwa, an entrepreneur-turned-academic, who co-authored the report.

"'It's hard to put a date on when this reverse brain drain began, but it accelerated when we went into recession because these emerging economies were not really impacted,' says Robert Litan, VP - research and policy at the Kauffman Foundation. 'It's not a brain drain, but a hemorrhage,' exclaims Wadhwa. 'Flawed US immigration policies along with opportunities in India and China have hastened this trend.'"

"The quest for Najib—the details of his life and the route of his great escape —that consumed me for the next thirteen years was not an easy one. Most of Palestine’s history, together with that of its people, is buried deep in the ground. To reconstruct the journey of my great-great-uncle I could not visit any of the houses where he and his family had lived in Haifa, his point of departure. This mixed community of Arabs and Jews has become an Israeli city, with most of its former Palestinian inhabitants scattered throughout the world. "

"Fazel — or as he would prefer to be known, Fajnzylber — is one of an increasing number of French Jews trying to persuade France's State Council to allow them to return to the family names their parents and grandparents gave up when they arrived here after World War II."

"A portion of the French civil code adopted after the war stipulates that family names are 'immutable' and must be continued. The civil code allows 'foreign sounding' names to be changed to those considered more French-like, but declares the 'impossibility' of reverting."

"These events all point to something that has been swept under the rug for too long in black America: the crisis in relations between men and women of all classes and, as a result, the catastrophic state of black family life"

"Where are Obama's non-white relatives? We see the black wife and kids everywhere, snippets of his Indonesian half sister, but where is little ol' white granny?"
