One woman’s dream can look like someone else’s worst nightmare, even if the director Wolfgang Fischer initially makes Rike’s passage into existential isolation seem inviting. After a brief, eloquent preamble in Germany, he deposits Rike in Gibraltar, where she efficiently packs up her boat. Much like his protagonist, Fischer assumes a well-organized, seamless approach to his launch, setting the scene with a bright, direct visual style that feels largely informational — a lingering shot of what appears to be months’ worth of food and water — and only occasionally slides into the metaphoric, as when Rike sails past a gargantuan tanker that conveys an ominous dehumanization. Apple is preparing to move into a bigger office, and Google recently opened one of the city’s biggest corporate lobbying offices.
Trade relations between Moscow and China are booming, the minister noted. But Mr. Netanyahu faces a far more serious criminal prosecution of his own, on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust over his ties to wealthy businessmen, and accusations that he traded official favors for gifts and positive news coverage. He is widely expected to be indicted subject to a hearing now set for Oct. 2, though he is expected to ask Israel’s Supreme Court for an extension.
The context for the letter going out now is unclear. However, the House has been kicking up its oversight efforts since Democrats took control of the chamber following November's midterm elections. And Democrats have been particularly unhappy with the FCC's decision to overturn net neutrality in 2017. This week, Democrats in the House introduced the Save the Internet Act to restore net neutrality. The deal to avert tariffs on Mexico, which Mr. Trump announced with great fanfare, consisted largely of actions on immigration that Mexico had already promised to take, according to officials from both countries.
If the bond market is any indication, Donald Trump’s escalating belligerence on trade is creating seriously increased risks of recession. But I haven’t seen many clear explanations of why that might be so. The problem isn’t just, or even mainly, that he really does seem to be a Tariff Man. What’s more important is that he’s a capricious, unpredictable Tariff Man. And that capriciousness is really bad for business investment. Another platoon medic, Special Operator First Class Terrence Byrne, said in court on Thursday that he had treated the captive on arrival, and that he had seemed stable. Special Operator Byrne said he stepped away, and when he returned a few minutes later, the captive was dead, and there was blood on the ground by his neck.
My question to Buttigieg — the mayor of South Bend, Ind., and a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate — had been about tax policy. Specifically, I wanted to know whether he supported an annual wealth tax and how high he thought the top marginal income tax rate should be. “Let’s learn from history,” he said. “Let’s not fall in the same hole.”
She is the daughter of Teresita C. Minev and Vladimir E. Minev of Las Vegas. The bride’s father retired as a professor of mathematics at the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas. Her mother retired as a microbiologist in the pathology laboratory at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas. But Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner reacted quickly, sprinted to his left, laid out for the ball and caught it backhanded to record the out.
Not the gritty, wrestle-with-where-we-are-going kind. The airbrushed, neutral, just-get-me-through-the-day kind. “I wanted to win this match, and I didn’t succeed. So, of course, it’s a bit sad.”
His eyes said, “It’s time.” Others object to the length of time that the government allocated for public consultation on the bill before moving it to the legislature. The government set aside 20 days, but other bills, including ones that are far less contentious, routinely get a few months.
