Cleaving A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession Julie Powell Little, Brown: 308 pp., $24.99 It's a loaded title: "Cleaving" is one of those words that turns on itself depending upon how it's used; to cling on the one hand, to sever on the other. Undoubtedly meant to convey ambivalence, it's the clearest and cleverest thing about "Julie and Julia" author Julie Powell's new memoir -- wherein she masters the art of butchery and seems resolved to take a hatchet to her long-term marriage besides.

IN JULIA'S KITCHEN Julia Child 's niece, Philadelphia Cousins, recalls time spent in Aunt Ju-Ju's kitchen , now on display at the National Museum of American History. "It was not until I came to Cambridge as a freshman at Radcliffe College in 1969 that I really came to know Julia and Paul and spend time in their spacious kitchen, full of copper pots and intriguing culinary equipment and redolent of buttery, spicy, wonderful scents," Cousins writes.

FILM CRITIC "Julie & Julia" does it right. A consummate entertainment that echoes the rhythms and attitudes of classic Hollywood, it's a satisfying throwback to those old-fashioned movie fantasies where impossible dreams do come true. And, in this case, it really happened. Twice.

Julie Powell's new book is not for the squeamish, in more ways than one. It opens with her in the back of a butcher shop, flecked with blood and reeking of meat. She's busy slicing a raw, slippery liver with a foot-long knife. By the end of the book, another internal organ -- her heart -- has been filleted: Powell dissects the pain caused by her two-year affair with an old college flame that sent her into an emotional tailspin and almost sank her marriage. It's all a bit, well, messy.

SO many people have blogs now, it's hard to imagine there's anyone left to read them. Twelve thousand new ones are supposedly created every day, and more than 1,200 English-language blogs are devoted to food alone. Some of them are even interesting. But in the beginning there was Julie Powell. In August 2002, the 29-year-old decided to cook all 524 recipes in Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" in the next year -- and write all about it on the Internet.

Mike Powell, Olympic silver medalist in the long jump, is a star in the making, but with a twist. He not only does the jumping, he does the promoting as well, serving as his own huckster. As Powell showed at Seoul, he has got the credentials, but not, he thinks, the attention. He seized the attention Tuesday at a media luncheon promoting the Times/Eagle Indoor Games, which will be held Friday night in the Forum. Powell was a glib and eager speaker, alone in the spotlight at last.

At a certain point in the wonderful new movie "Julie & Julia," there is a plot twist so shocking the audience gasps. Julia Child does something that seems so totally out of character that even on the way out, people were still shaking their heads. "How could she?" Well, that's one mystery I can solve. I was right there in the middle of it. Before I go any further, I have to warn you that this column is as full of spoilers as an unplugged refrigerator in August. If you haven't already seen the movie, you might want to wait to read this until after you have.

The Moorpark College women's team held off a furious Taft rally to win, 60-59, Saturday night at home. With less than a minute left in the game and Moorpark leading, 58-55, Taft's Leesa Agent hit two free throws. Moorpark's Julie Powell scored a basket that was followed by another basket by Agent. Moorpark was able to run out the final seconds to preserve the victory. Last season, the Cougars beat the Moorpark twice. "This was one that we needed," Moorpark Coach Anthony Smith said.
