He found this in his research with Bridgett vonHoldt, a molecular biologist at Princeton University. She and a team of researchers identified genes in dogs that in humans are associated with Williams-Beuren syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. One of the many symptoms of the syndrome is indiscriminate friendliness. Dr. Wynne and Dr. Udell worked with Dr. vonHoldt on a subsequent study of wolves and dogs that tied behavior and genetics together. They concluded that the genes associated with Williams-Beuren syndrome in humans underlie the friendliness of dogs compared to wolves.

Brussels sprouts and eggplant were especially compelling because they were able to retain the most oil, either by absorbing it, as in the case of the eggplant, or by being trapped within the layers of the brussels sprout. This extra oil in turn made the vegetables fantastically crisp. (With other vegetables, the fan’s force caused the oil to slide right off.) ‘BEETHOVEN! MAKING THE FIFTH’ at the Kaye Playhouse (April 6, 10 and 11:30 a.m.; April 7, 10 and 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.). The four dramatic notes at the start of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony are enough to make any audience member sit up and take heed. They should have that effect at this program, the season’s last concert of the Little Orchestra Society’s LOS Kids series for ages 3 to 10. Other elements will also keep young listeners intrigued, like a humorous script by Craig Shemin and appearances by the comical character Professor Treblemaker and Beethoven himself. The focus is on how this composer created his works, with excerpts from not only the Fifth Symphony but also pieces like the “Moonlight” Sonata and the “Leonora” Overture from “Fidelio.”212-971-9500, littleorchestra.org

Our chief Washington correspondent says that Republicans have been willing to break with the president over foreign policy when they believe there are no political consequences back home. And today? Forget the pitter-patter.

An easy way to keep track of color temperature is to think of a flame: it starts out yellow and orange, but when it gets really hot, it turns blue. You could also think of color temperature in terms of the sun -- low, yellowy color temperatures mimic the tone of light at sunrise or sunset, while hotter, more bluish-white color temperatures are more akin to daylight (sure enough, bulbs with color temperatures like these are commonly called "daylight" bulbs). This is also why a lot of people prefer high color temperatures during the day and lower color temperatures in the morning and evening. Some smart bulbs can even shift back and forth throughout the day. “For the older folks, maybe they were the first person somewhere because the world hadn’t been explored that much, and they had that opportunity,” said Aleksandr Rikhterman, 26, a Brooklyn-based documentary filmmaker. “We can’t do that so we have to look at exploring differently. We can use new tools to take a closer look at the environments that have already been found.”

A copy of the lawsuit was posted by Fox News. The problem first became apparent in 2012 with an attack on the American Embassy in the capital, Tunis. Three days earlier in neighboring Libya, militants had attacked the American mission in the eastern city of Benghazi. Four Americans were killed, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

Susan Fang began designing clothes at age 5, for the girls in her comic books. Born in Yuyao, China, she moved from place to place during her childhood, from China to England, Canada and the U.S. “It was a lot of changes,” she says. “But it made me extremely interested in the difference between people’s perceptions and perspectives.” Fang became passionate about exploring the arts, culture and fashion of the places in which she lived, and she eventually settled in London, where she studied fashion at Central Saint Martins. After graduating, she spent two years gaining experience at Celine and Stella McCartney before founding her eponymous label in 2018. Characterized by naturalistic and geometric motifs, her otherworldly pieces include bags made from bubblelike glass beads and sheer pastel dresses, but perhaps her most notable invention is the “airweave,” a garment made from strips of featherlight fabric (such as chiffon, yarn) that shape-shifts as the wearer moves, creating the impression, in Fang’s words, that her garments “swim between two and three dimensions.” Although she is still based in London, Fang will show her spring 2020 collection in Milan, at the invitation of Sara Maino, Editor of Vogue Talents, a platform dedicated to emerging designers. Fang was also shortlisted for the LVMH Prize this year. Her new collection will be filled with optical illusions and unexpected materials, she says: “It will be very surreal and ethereal.” “He’s a special talent at closing and winning games — and not just offensively,” Brand said. “He’s just a winner.”

Schedule a TripBut we’ve never had an empty seat, not one. I really believe that. There was one case where we had a tremendous snowstorm, and it was just about frozen. It was like a monster storm, I don’t even know how it got there. I said, “how’s the crowd?” “It’s just not full, sir.” I said what does that mean. There’s like two seats on top. Thousands and thousands of people couldn’t get there. So they show pictures of the empty seats. The worst storm they’ve had in years. They show pictures of like nine empty seats. They could have been people just went to the bathroom together. Debs certainly read his Marx and Engels; he believed in class struggle, and the eventual (if not immediate) arrival of the democratic socialist commonwealth. But as Mr. Salvatore notes: “Debs remains the classic example of an indigenous American radical. He was not born a Socialist, and he did not reject American values when he became one.” He spoke American, not Marxist. His emphasis, from his days as a craft unionist and through all his subsequent political evolution, “stressed the individual dignity and power inherent in the concept of citizenship.”

“My favorite gifts from Karl are not from Chanel. But my favorite gifts from Chanel are all the black fingerless gloves and the black silk scarf-tie I wore around my neck in a floppy bow, with the gloves on my hands during some of my favorite touring live performances of my entire career. It was part of my signature look for a couple years. He loved that I wore the gloves, he used to tell me about his mother and how he wanted to learn to play the piano and why he wears gloves, but that I’ll keep secret. The College Board’s changes to its travel allowances came as testing companies were strengthening security measures, even before the scandal broke. The College Board bans cellphones during testing and has increased random audits of test centers. In some places, tests are delivered in locked boxes that cannot be opened until test time.

Schedule a TripBut when she told Mr. Raniere that she was attracted to another man, he directed that she be confined inside a room for nearly two years, convincing her family that she needed to be punished because she was “prideful.” In the end, her father and another Nxivm member drove her to the Mexican border. Another Spanish-language production amplified seldom-heard voices in a far more immersive and involving way. In “Paisajes Para No Colorear” (“Landscapes Not for Coloring”), Marco Layera directs nine Chilean girls between the ages of 13 and 17 who sound off about their adolescent frustrations and yearnings in a society that expects them to assume traditional gender roles.

Playing Pebble Beach has taught Mickelson to take nothing for granted. He was trailing by two strokes after 36 holes in 1996 but never got a chance to make a charge as inclement weather washed out the final two rounds. Two years later, Mickelson successfully outlasted Mother Nature and the field for his first Pebble Beach Pro-Am title. At the Brooke Hospital for Animals in Cairo’s Syeda Zainab district, Dr. Mohammed Hammad swung back a stall door to reveal a skinny horse with protruding hips and a large wound on its rear.
