I live in San Francisco, California, and sending your child to a public school here works a little differently than in other places.
You don’t just get assigned to your nearest neighborhood school; instead, you fill out a form with your top school choices out of around 70-ish public elementary schools in the city and hope you get assigned to one of those choices. The number of possible choices would have overwhelmed me had I not been dead set on sending my kids to a public elementary school with a Spanish/English dual-language immersion program.
Since I absolutely knew that I wanted my children to attend an elementary school with a Spanish/English dual-language immersion (DLI) program, my choice of schools went from 70-ish elementary schools to nine.
I filled out the required paperwork, mailed it to the powers that be, and crossed my fingers that we would get our top choice. It worked out for both of my daughters.

What Is ‘(Un)well’ Essential Oils Advocate Dr. Zielinski Doing Now?
Netflix has become a go-to source for bingeable docuseries’, and the latest release from the streaming service focuses on trends in wellness. (Un)Well is a six episode series about the various treatments, fads, and potential cures that are gaining traction — from the usage of essential oils, to the benefits of breast milk, to whether or not extreme fasting is beneficial.
Dr. Zielinski is one of the professionals shown in the first episode, which centers around essential oils and aromatherapy.
Who is Dr. Z from ‘(Un)Well’?
While the beginning of Episode 1, which is aptly entitled “Essential Oils,” focused on using the liquids for healing in hospitals, Dr. Eric Zielinski (aka Dr. Z) has a different approach. The Kennesaw, Ga. based chiropractor and entrepreneur offers a masterclass and books through his website, NaturalLivingFamily.com. According to Dr. Z, the lessons, which users pay for, provide insight into how the oils work and what they can be used for. The most expensive online class is $77.
Per the blog’s website, Dr. Z believes that people can achieve “true Biblical health” by focusing on seven specific areas in life. These include “spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, financial, occupational, and social” health.
He said that he and his wife Sabrina Zielinski, who also goes by Mama Z, have made seven figures from their business.
Dr. Z said that he began to benefit from essential oils after struggling with depression and addiction issues in his teens and early twenties.
“When I was just about 23 years old, I had a spiritual revelation … I became a Christian,” he said. “Within a moment, the addiction, the depression, the anxiety, the suicidal thoughts all went away … I’m a living miracle.”
While turning to religion helped Dr. Z with his mental health, he said that his physical ailments were persisting. That’s when he turned to essential oils, and he’s been using them in his life for nearly 20 years.
“We use essential oils throughout the day. It’s just happiness in a bottle,” Eric said on (Un)Well. “It’s just become a culture that we’ve created here.”
On the show, Dr. Z discussed how he used oils on his young children, Esther, Isaiah, Elijah, and Bella. The family has diffusers, which pump oils throughout the house, and they have integrated them into their soaps, lotions, and food.
While people have said that it can be dangerous to ingest essential oils, Dr. Z said that he doesn’t believe that to be true. Other experts featured on the series disagreed with Dr. Z’s sentiments.
Where is Dr. Zielinski from ‘(Un)Well’ now?
Following his appearance on the docuseries, Dr. Z is still operating his website and blog. His official Facebook page has more than 213,000 followers. He often posts about home remedies for various seasonal ailments and life stressors, in addition to Biblical verses.
His most recent posts have clarified that he is “pro-choice” regarding mask wearing for the coronavirus pandemic, and “that the solutions for 99% of all health issues can be found in nature and can be remedied by lifestyle choices: diet, exercise, stress management, prayer/meditation, using natural therapies like essential oils.”
Though users cannot buy essential oils directly from Dr. Z’s website, he does provide instructions on how to mix them through his books and on his site.
(Un)Well is available to stream on Netflix now.
Louise Kiely explains the importance of believability in casting ‘Normal People’ stars Daisy Edgar-Jones, Paul Mescal [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO INTERVIEW]
“It was more important that the right actor embody Connell, rather than lots of days on set and their experience,” explains Louise Kiely about casting Paul Mescal in “Normal People.” Mescal is now nominated at the Emmys for Best Movie/Limited Actor for his television debut; Kiely is also celebrating her first nomination, in the Best Movie/Limited Casting category. The casting director laughs as she begins to explain what they were looking for in the role of Connell Waldron, “You could say ‘football skills’ and that stuff that’s at the end of your CV, but being completely honest, it was much more about believability in the early years and talent in order to follow their arc and stick with them and believe them throughout.”
“It was much more to do with the desires and the wants and the needs of the two characters and the difficulties within those characters,” continues Kiely, referencing Mescal’s co-lead Daisy Edgar-Jones, who played Marianne Sheridan. She adds, “It’s hard to speak about one and not the other, but what they were able to inhabit and project therefore was all of those detailed nuances — and also, the arc!” Kiely notes that she sought actors who could portray the emotional and physical growth over the years that are depicted on screen and were originally described in the novel of the same name. The Hulu miniseries was co-adapted by author Sally Rooney, but the casting process began in advance of scripts being completed. Kiely explains, “They were being written, but we worked off the book at the early stages.”

Project Power: What Are All the Characters’ Powers?
If you could take a pill that gave you powers for five minutes, but you couldn’t choose the powers, would you? That’s the question people find themselves asking in Netflix’s Project Power, only the result doesn’t always work out in their favor. Ex-soldier Art (Jamie Foxx) teams up with teenage dealer Robin (Dominique Fishback) and local cop Frank (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in the hopes of finding his daughter, who’s been taken by evil corporation Teleios.
To get her back, the group has to go up against these power-fueled individuals and discover their own powers along the way. In a speech to potential investors, Biggie (Rodrigo Santoro) explains that the powers are all derived from animals in some way, shape, or form, like the lizard that is able to heal and whose power is seen being used by one of Biggie’s henchmen. Ahead, we’ve broken down everything from Newt’s (Machine Gun Kelly) ability to thermoregulate on demand to the not-so-great power of self-destruction.
