Shaping reality to fit political maneuvering has a long tradition in the Kremlin, and unfortunately the practice is gaining popularity in the White House and among would-be authoritarians the world round. That makes it all the more important that institutions dedicated to the rule of law, to reliance on fact and to the primacy of truth should resolutely push back. Modest increases in federal need-based Pell grants also helped. But even so, the maximum grant covered less than a third of college costs in 2018, the institute’s report noted.


The bill would also restrict after-hours work by private developers and construction companies to four days a per week, including one weekend day. It would also limit after-hours work in individual neighborhoods by requiring companies doing such work on adjacent blocks to do it at the same time. Exceptions would be made for public safety, utility and government projects. The news that Trump administration officials are on a fact-finding mission in California to explore solutions to homelessness was greeted with skepticism, to put it mildly, by mayors of several of the state’s biggest cities.

He said that iPhones and social media have so reshaped culture that older people would have to accept the new and sometimes naked reality. He had to agree with Representative Matt Gaetz, the 37-year-old Florida Republican and Trump lap dog, who told Fox News: “This is an issue where a lot of millennials, I think, sympathize with Katie Hill because a lot of young people who grew up with a smartphone in their hands took pictures, sent them, shared messages and materials that are now recoverable later in life.” When Jean Harrow got a ticket in 2016 for unauthorized renovations to her Queens home, she thought it was a misunderstanding. Yes, she had put a powder room in her basement without realizing she needed a permit. But surely, she said, she wasn’t responsible for the washer and dryer a previous owner had installed downstairs — illegally, according to the ,600 citation. She would simply explain that at her hearing.

Drip takes its name from the practice of drip marketing. The idea of this is that a pre-written set of messages are sent out to customers or prospects over a period of time. One message might welcome a prospect to a mailing list. Another might introduce one or two products. Another might provide an "exclusive discount," and so on. Lauren Katzenberg, the editor of The Times’s At War channel, will moderate a conversation with C. J. Chivers, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Times journalist and Marine veteran; Elizabeth D. Samet, a historian, an author and a professor of English at the United States Military Academy; and Dennis Laich, a retired Army major general and the executive director of the All-Volunteer Force Forum.


    The Louisiana law, enacted in 2014, requires doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. In 2017, Judge John W. deGravelles of the Federal District Court in Baton Rouge struck down the law, saying that such doctors were often unable to obtain admitting privileges for reasons unrelated to their competence and that the law created an undue burden on women’s constitutional right to abortion. Which suggests that while the Francis legacy includes certain preconditions for a schism, any true break awaits some new development — another ecumenical council, or at least a different pope.


    The cuts are quick — warm shots of confident guests at the dinner table interspersed with darker scenes in which they’re suffering: poor health, financial hardship, criminal past, abuse, death of a loved one. The message of the video isn’t exactly that nothing is as it seems, but more that where you end up may be far from where you came from, and that success doesn’t cure all obstacles. While the dogs got to know each other, Mr. Willingham invited Mr. Critzman to the house he was borrowing for a swim and margaritas. The next night, they attended a production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at the town’s Gateway Playhouse.


    Northern San Diego County is a scientific mecca, home to some of the world’s leading biotech companies, renowned research institutions and a world-class university. But the Salk Institute for Biological Research, perched on a cliff above the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, is distinguished even among its neighbors. Jonas Salk founded the institution in 1963 as a kind of second legacy, after the millions of lives saved with his polio vaccine. He envisioned it as a place where scientists would work in open, collaborative laboratories, free from university bureaucracies: They would be professors, supervising graduate students and postdocs, but with no teaching requirements. He recruited 10 of the top men in biology to join him, including Francis Crick, newly famous for discovering, with James Watson, DNA’s double helix. In a 1960 letter, Watson called the idea “Jonas’s utopia.” “But this is an important first step,” he said.


    Errors are corrected during the press run whenever possible, so some errors noted here may not have appeared in all editions. Amidror remains angry to this day. “We had an open and honest relationship with the Americans,” he says. “Everything went excellently until it became clear to us that they were concealing things.” In the end, he says, the American negotiators “sold us up the river.”


    A Big Ten champion, perhaps (the conference hasn’t been in the playoff in two years and hasn’t scored there in four years). Nickelson Wooster, the retail and brand consultant who came to fame as an Instagram idol, echoed Mr. Krakoff’s assessment. “More than ever,” Mr. Wooster said, “men are now open to wearing jewelry and accessories. If they’re clever, brands and retailers are building their offerings to meet this need.”


    Buying a subscription service for someone has never been easier. There are more services now for more things than ever before. However, choosing which service to gift, well that's where the difficulty lies. Which is why we've simplified your subscription service choices into top threes, over three different categories: video streaming, music streaming and console gaming.  Mr. Bolton, who before joining the administration was an advocate of American-led regime change in Iran, was an enthusiast of the “maximum pressure” campaign. And indeed it has been more successful than most experts expected. Iran’s oil revenues have plunged, its economy is shrinking and some of its elites are beginning to wonder whether it’s time to acknowledge the inevitable, which is to negotiate with a president they can’t stand.

“It’s true,” she says. “The celebrating gets out of hand. That’s the way it always is.” This push to enhance workers’ freedom to strike is more consequential than it might look at first glance. Conflict was the engine of labor reform in the 1930s. And mass strikes and picketing, in particular, pushed the federal government to act.
