The Women's Theatre Alliance of Chicago presents 7 new plays that focus on female characters. The only requirement for their new play development workshop was that the plays pass the Bechdel Test.

The showcase features seven new plays with a focus on female characters.

Google+ was always the superior product. Is this why it never caught fire?
In Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg built not just a business, but a company culture with the fervor of a messianic sect.

Unpacking my brain after our Disney World vacation 
My family and I recently returned from a vacation to Disney World. Here are a few thoughts and observations I had while I was there. The line of teenage girls wanting to have their pictures taken with the hot guy selling balloons can get almost as long as the lines of children wanting to have... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/listing-beyond-forty/2016/04/assorted-observations-from-disney-world/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

The Donald Trump rally in Chicago was canceled due to protests. I wrote a song to commemorate the event. I present "Tiny Hands, Sir" in the style of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer."
My friend Old Single Mom went to the Donald Trump Rally in Chicago that was canceled. You should read her incredible observations from the event. One of the things she notes is this: A bunch of Trump supporters sang in unison to Elton John’s “Rocket Man” – and then blanked on the lyrics of “Tiny Dancer.”... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/listing-beyond-forty/2016/03/canceled-trump-rally-song-tiny-hands-sir/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

I'm an otherwise healthy 43-year-old woman who has been recently diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, a heart condition.
I’ve always been perfectly healthy, in spite of myself. After blood work, each test result falls right into the desired range. Although my weight has fluctuated it has typically stayed within the “normal” BMI range. I’ve never had broken a bone, had a serious illness, or needed surgery. I still have all of my wisdom... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/listing-beyond-forty/2016/07/heart-condition-tachycardia/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

Pregnancy is not a sign of weakness. Pregnancy is a sign of strength. That's true of Olivia Colman and her character in The Night Manager as well as so many real life pregnant women I have known.
I recently watched The Night Manager mini-series. Although most of the hype focused on male leads Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie (a.k.a. Loki vs. House), I was equally fascinated by Angela Burr, the character played by Olivia Colman. Angela Burr is a British intelligence officer who won’t let anything stop her from tracking an international arms... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/listing-beyond-forty/2016/06/in-praise-of-badass-pregnant-women/...

A story about the time my department Vice President mistook me for arm candy. #womenintech 
Growing up I never thought it was unusual to be a “woman in tech.” Sure, I was a girl who taught myself how to code by second grade, but I wrote that code on a computer that was largely used by my mother. I guess there weren’t many women in my computer classes, but I... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/listing-beyond-forty/2016/05/my-welcome-to-women-in-tech-moment/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

What is the internet? People on Twitter have a few ideas.
The internet is not capitalized according to a recent change to the AP Stylebook. The internet (nee Internet) is a lot of things, at least according to Twitter. I happened to see these two tweets starting with “The internet is…” in close succession today: The internet is where people go to prove they’re the best... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/listing-beyond-forty/2016/04/the-internet-is-a-topic-on-twitter/" class="more-link">Read more »</a...

There is a mosque in my neighborhood, but it's not the Muslims I'm afraid of.
There is a mosque in my neighborhood. Sometimes it makes me nervous. Sometimes I purposefully walk on the other side of the street to avoid walking too close, or I choose a path that avoids that block altogether. There is a mosque in my neighborhood. I’m not nervous about the people who go to the... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/listing-beyond-forty/2016/03/my-neighborhood-mosque/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

This is a fan letter.
To whom it may concern: This is a fan letter. I’m writing to say that I’m a fan of yours. I hope that’s flattering and not creepy. Regardless, I’ve started writing this, so I guess I’ll keep going. I love what you do. You’ve done some really wonderful work. So good. I know your critics... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/listing-beyond-forty/2016/03/this-is-a-fan-letter/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

I've been a fan of Co-Op Hot Sauce for a while. Then I discovered the amazing food that the Co-Op sauce and Crumb bread teams make together for The Stew Supper Club. What a shame, I thought, that people only have one chance a month to experience thatdelicious food. I was elated to learn that they'd be opening a cafe. Their sandwiches and salads use superb ingredients in inventive flavor combinations. Yesterday we shared a pork noodle salad and sandwich with turkey, bacon, herbed butter and cheese. Just as at the Stew Supper Club their food is inspired my many cuisines yet I dare not cheapen it with the f word (fusion). My only sadness is that they are only open Thursday through Sunday, but maybe if we all go there a lot they will open more? I hope? Be sure to grab some hot sauce to go while you are there.

These wings are amazing. Huge, crispy, with unique and delicious sauces. I prefer the spicy ones, but I wouldn't kick the soy sauce ones out of bed either. Not that I eat Dak wings in bed. Or at least I haven't at the time of this posting. But now the idea is in my head. Hmm. I have been known to eat the extra sauce out of the bottom of the to go container with a spoon. Wait. I've said too much. Forget all that. Get the wings. Get a lot of wings. The other stuff is okay, but you can get better basic Korean food elsewhere. Go to this place for the wings. Did I mention the wings?
