A word of caution

A word of caution
As usual, you should exercise extreme caution before you write your final exams. Do not allow your brain to be occupied by worries and worries about whether people are taking your exam seriously, or whether you can be bothered to do it. Focus on your own exams instead of those of others. If you are so inspired to write for your exam, go for it. Otherwise, keep it away from everybody else, and let people enjoy studying without you.In a post on Facebook, KXAN radio host and city council member Delia Garza said that her father and many other families she knows have already lost power after the fire’s destruction. She asked, “Are you worried about what comes with that?”
I worry about what comes with burning down my house when I lost power and all my lights, internet and phones out. There is going to have to be a lot of cleanup. — Delia Garza, KXAN City Council Member
Fire officials did say that some of the damaged homes will likely have to be demolished. There was an additional $1 million for structural damage at the fire’s height.
KXAN is one of the main radio outlets on city’s airwaves. Garza has been a city councilwoman since 2003 and was named chairwoman of the city’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee in 2015. She says she received a call around 7:45 p.m. that the fire was now under control. She was one of many officials to receive the call as word spread about the blaze.
I went to my house and then I came back to my neighborhood in the eastside of Austin. I couldn’t see anything beyond the smoke but I could smell it. — Delia Garza, City Council Member
“All I could smell was the fire,” she said. Garza says she’s lived in her house since 1988. She says the family has pets but only owned electricity a couple of years ago.
“I went to my house and then I came back to my neighborhood in the eastside of Austin. I couldn’t see anything beyond the smoke but I could smell it,” she said.
On Wednesday, firefighters began working on clearing out debris and putting some buildings back into their proper positions.
Garza is a Democrat running for mayor. She is the most well-funded candidate in the race.
Her running mate is one of the biggest political figures in the state’s booming Republican Party. The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors.

I did tweak the original recipe by using 3T of cornstarch rather than 1/4 c, and doubled the water for 5-7oz of pasta, but it still came out just right for my tastes, so I’ve stuck to this method.
In an 8x8cm square dish, combine 1 cup of grated parmesan, 2T of flour, and 1/2 tsp of garlic powder. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add a small amount of water, then put the pasta in, pressing it down to get a decent amount of water stuck to it. Cook for a minute, then sprinkle the flour over it to coat and let it simmer on a low heat until the mixture has almost all dissolved into it
