None of this fazed Ishita Katyal, a 10-year-old Pune writer and middle-schooler who, quite extraordinarily, debuted as the opening speaker at the TED2016 (Technology, Entertainment, Design), a nerdy conference of some of the world's smartest people.
Alpha-geeks from Google and Tesla, Apple and Uber, not to speak of marquee names such as Al Gore and Bill Gates are attending the annual brainiacs gig, but it was the singsong voice of this pre-teen, with her pink-frame spectacles and burgundy velvet gown, that held centerstage on Monday when the conference opened.
Alex and Maggie are giving me all the “adult” relationship I need from this show, leaving Kara and Mon-El to deliver the “teen” vibes I still enjoy.
Maybe we’ll find out he’s not the guy for her down the line — they’re being compared to Romeo and Juliet, and we all know how well things turned out for those two — but for now, I’m enjoying my visit to, as Kevin Smith puts it, “Charm City.” VLADA I think it’s also important to note that Kara brings out a better side of Mon-El. Kara and James’ would-be relationship always felt somewhat stagnant to me — once they get together, what’s the conflict? And if Kara and Mon-El aren’t meant to be, then at least we’ll (hopefully) get a really great, emotional storyline out of their Romeo and Juliet-esque romance.
Aliens (2009), Water for Elephants (2011), and Sing (2016).
In 2014, Witherspoon produced the thriller Gone Girl and received critical acclaim for portraying Cheryl Strayed in Wild, for which she earned her second Academy Award nomination for Best Actress and a fourth Golden Globe nomination.

Her leading role of Tracy Flick in Election (1999) was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.MATT in the file room was obviously being played for laughs, but his casual morality set him up as a most peculiar fit for do-right Kara. Andy, I think we need to see more of Kara’s feelings for Mon-El if the writers want us to believe in them as a couple someday.I’m not feeling the “Romeo and Juliet” thing you two keep citing — interplanetary rivalry via hearsay doesn’t carry as much heft as Shakespeare — but I suppose I will make one last effort to see Kara and Mon-El as something, I don’t think a proper kiss is too far off, since we’ve already gotten an improper one. It’s obvious he’s smitten, but I’m not so sure about her.Asked at a press conference what he thought of all the fuss and attention, he flashed a huge grin and answered humbly.“Even though it’s my name, it’s something we always do for the city,” he said.If we’re speaking botanically, I’d say their romantic relationship has been planted and is being watered — but we’re all getting ahead of ourselves. VLADA As a rom-com sucker, I find Kara and Mon-El’s scenes absolutely delightful.
