Schedule a TripCriticizing inaction at the federal level, Ms. Rennie said that “it flies in the face of common sense to say it’s an emergency, and we’ve said so, and we’ve done nothing,” she added. “That’s like saying the house is burning down and we’ve done nothing to save it.” During a particularly rainy San Francisco winter, Jim Wilson, our bureau photographer, and I wandered the slick streets of the Mission and the hills around Dolores Park with Mr. Orta as he scoured garbage bins for things he could sell.
It's tough to say goodbye to some vehicles. Known as Thornbrook Hill, this Main Line stucco home was renovated three years ago by a developer. It sits on a hill, half a mile from the train and about a mile, in opposite directions, from the campuses of Bryn Mawr College and Villanova University.

"When you remove all of the constraints and the only laws you have to meet are the laws of physics... that's the ultimate engineer's dream," said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford's chief product development and purchasing officer, at a closed-door June media preview. I was brought up in a kosher and fairly observant household, and attended 12 years of religious school. I was raised to go to the women’s college at Yeshiva University, not Stony Brook, and I certainly wasn’t supposed become a wine writer. But I did both of those things. And almost 20 years ago, I dedicated myself to the cause of natural wine: organic viticulture with none of the more than 70 legal additives — things like yeast, bacteria, tannin, acid, anti-foaming agents and wood chips — that may be present in most wines, kosher or otherwise. The secular bottles I drink are mostly made from one ingredient: grapes.

Mary Lynn Rajskub, 47, said that when she was performing stand-up while her hit show “24” was on the air, she heard “there were some comedians at the comedy club that were like, ‘Oh, she’s going to come take our spots now because of her name.’” Rajskub had been doing stand-up for more than a decade at that point. If you’re wondering why their fans spent days camped outside NBC headquarters or why “S.N.L.” audience members burst into hoots, screams and applause any time the band’s name was mentioned, watch the video above, in which BTS performs “Boy With Luv” from its new album, “Map of the Soul: Persona.”

Born in Australia to a Bosnian father and an Australian mother, the actor grew up overseas and worked in Hollywood (I later found a YouTube video of his role as a roller-skating love interest in a Jessica Simpson music video). A decade ago he came to his father’s hometown for a visit — and never left. “There’s just something about this city, it has so much soul,” he said. On a steep cobblestone road, his children play in neighboring shops as he slings flat whites alongside Bosnian coffee in a cozy nook that could easily be in Brooklyn, Berlin or on Instagram. It’s a modern approach to a Turkish legacy that’s ingrained in Bosnia’s national identity.
