A mirror-opposite appraisal of what happened on Saturday was presented by Vasily A. Nebenzia, the ambassador from Russia, which has become Mr. Maduro’s principal defender and a critical supplier of economic assistance. In fact, a pediatrician friend maintained that the true purpose of early childhood education was to confer immunity, so that our kids wouldn’t miss every fourth day when they started Real School.
Mr. Hoylman said he envisioned the state tax bill as a way to assist congressional oversight at a time of “White House stonewalling.” Indeed, when the bill was first introduced in early April, Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said it would make the work of federal committee “a little easier to see the complete picture.” “I am, in a sense, the audience — someone trying to figure things out, following my nose and going with what was interesting to me,” Ms. Hartman explained.
Schedule a TripIt would have been nice, this week, to have had a president who could say a few words in French about the Cathedral of Notre-Dame. He would not necessarily have had to give an entire interview with a French-language television station like Buttigieg did. But a couple of prememorized, read-from-the-teleprompter sentences would have been appreciated. In 1968, after a federal court ordered the Legislature to redraw Brooklyn’s congressional districts, ruling that they discriminated against black voters, he ran with the informal support of party leaders in the new 12th District.
Then the researchers added the names of all the parties listed as being affected in more than a dozen bankruptcies that McKinsey had worked on — thousands of banks, insurers, investors, utilities, landlords, vendors, unions, retirees and others with stakes. A particularly toxic brew of glibness and graphic violence, this Netflix throwaway, directed by the music video maestro Jonas Akerlund, stars the usually trustworthy Mads Mikkelsen as a notorious hit man, the Black Kaiser, who decides he is ready to retire and ruminate on his sins. His boss (a preening Matt Lucas) has other ideas. He sends a team of hot, hip young assassins to take down the Kaiser in his wintry Montana hide-out (and to torture as many people as they can along the way).

In the wake of countless data scandals, it has become increasingly clear who is paying the price: consumers. At the same time, many major industry players continue to post record profits. It is past time to remedy this imbalance. As Congress considers federal privacy legislation, it should make clear that a privacy violation itself is a harm and that consumers have a right to take companies that propagate such harms to court.
Schedule a TripBut his type of injury has ended careers, particularly among big men, and every team in the league balked at offering him a long-term deal. He wound up with the Warriors, who signed him to a one-year contract worth .3 million — a modest price for a reclamation project with upside and little obvious risk. Only a decade ago, the New York region was flying high. More than 90 percent of subway trains were on time, compared to about 70 percent today. In the 1990s, New Jersey Transit won a coveted award three times from the American Public Transportation Association.
A visitor from Los Angeles asked a tall man if he was in line for the bathroom. “You don’t know who that is?” her companion hissed. “That’s Andrew Cuomo, the governor.” From the outset, the movie tells two stories in parallel — one about the mammoth hunters, the other about scientific advances that, with some imagination, raise the prospect of bringing mammoths back. Tagging along with the tusk hunters, Maxim Arbugaev, who is credited as the co-director and cinematographer for the New Siberian Islands footage, effectively becomes part of their team as they search for intact tusks. The hunters, despite risking their lives, barely share in the down-market proceeds. They are part of an unsustainable supply chain that will itself eventually go the way of the mammoth.
Schedule a TripOne clue may be his wife, Karen, known to the public mainly because the vice president refuses to meet alone with women other than her. Her influence seems significant. The cherry-red telephone on his desk as governor was a direct line to Karen, who maintained an office across the statehouse atrium but preferred phone conversations to avoid prying eyes. Karen, LoBianco reports, “was livid” at Trump’s prurient comments in the “Access Hollywood” tape, but her husband concluded it was too late to drop off the ticket. On election night, 2016, Karen refused to kiss Pence. “You got what you wanted, Mike,” she told him. “Leave me alone.” In the 2017 and 2018 fiscal years, Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested over 210,876 people with previous criminal convictions, and another 55,233 people with pending criminal charges.

Schedule a TripA city engineer quit his job and then went on a shooting rampage at Building No. 2 of the Virginia Beach Municipal Center. The suspect, a former soldier, was armed with two handguns and a cache of ammunition as he targeted his former co-workers in offices and hallways, according to the authorities. His victims were civil servants in the public works and public utilities departments and a contractor who was at the offices to discuss a permit. Until the attack in El Paso on Saturday, the shooting at Virginia Beach was the greatest loss of life in a mass killing this year. For all his talk about purpose, Mr. Fink has also been criticized in some quarters for not using his influence enough. Various advocacy groups have called for BlackRock to sell its shares in certain industries, like oil companies.
Ms. Zirinsky pitched the changes as a fresh start after a painful period for the House of Cronkite, whose hidebound culture had been rocked by declining ratings and workplace misconduct scandals involving Jeff Fager, the longtime leader of “60 Minutes,” and Charlie Rose, the former co-anchor of “CBS This Morning.” Since The Times’s initial report that the golf club employed undocumented immigrants, three additional immigrants have come forward, saying that they used fraudulent documents to secure jobs there and that management was aware of their illegal status.
Schedule a TripBut without democracy, a succession of Hong Kong governments have blundered into political crises by underestimating or ignoring the public’s concerns — and each time, Beijing gets some of the blame. Some of her close advisers say that it is unclear whether she had any discussion with Beijing leaders in advance about the extradition bill. I think there’s a way of seeing Joe as the first time we’ve represented this kind of character in a responsible fashion, because to the degree that we are making him romantic and charming and glamorous, we are still being like “Yeah, but he kills four people and then Beck. What more can we tell you about his character than that?”
You can serve manzanilla as an aperitif, or with classic snacks like Marcona almonds, cured anchovies, olives or Ibérico ham. Or you can drink it with a seafood dinner, especially one you eat with your hands: fried shrimp or clams, white bait, nothing too formal. After all, manzanilla is for the seashore, not the drawing room. “Have you ever thought about how amazing, really amazing, life is?”

She simultaneously made a surprise announcement that she would be resigning at the end of the academic year.
Schedule a TripTwitter plans to release the ability to follow topics globally by the end of the year. As the social network tries to attract and retain new users, Twitter has been trying to take more risks with product changes. Earlier this year, Twitter released a prototype app so users could test new features such as adding color to replies, with the goal of making it easier to follow conversations. The author is Alison Lurie, and the passage draws from a 2002 book called “Boys and Girls Forever: Children’s Classics From Cinderella to Harry Potter,” itself a compendium of several essays that mostly appeared in the New York Review of Books. Ms. Lurie has analyzed legions of stories for young people, and her attention here is paid to L. Frank Baum and his “Oz” series. I don’t really remember which of these books I read — the 1939 movie is what’s stuck with me over the years. The passage refers to an intriguing character who did not appear in that film, and who doesn’t ring a bell to me, but the plot reveal we see about the wizard isn’t news to anyone who saw the movie or read the original book.

Schedule a Trip• The candidates were split over just how aggressively the next president should seek to transform the country along more liberal lines. I hope that the global trend toward strong men and bullying dictators as an easy solution to complex problems (is this partly a reaction to women’s momentum?) begins to wane, starting with Trump deposed or leaving under his own steam. It’s the example we can show to the world. — Sandra Neily, Greenville, Me.
The same populist forces that reshaped Turkey and Egypt have altered the landscape in Europe. In Germany, another American ally, Russian interference was initially blamed for this rightward tilt. I met Stefan Meister of the German Council on Foreign Relations at his sparse office. Meister was one of the first analysts in Berlin to raise the alarm of a new Russian threat. In 2016, a year before a pivotal German parliamentary election, he named civil-society groups, lobbying groups and politicians as “networks of influence,” working to advance the Russian cause to destabilize the European Union. “In the campaign for the next federal elections in Germany,” he then predicted, “Russia will play a prominent role.” لم تكن روزان متزوجة أو مهتمة بالزواج في الوقت الحالي، فظلّت هي البطلة الأولى في قصتها. كانت ترسل لأقرانها رسائل تحمل بعض دلالات الودّ ما جعل كل واحد منهم يعتقد أنه الأقرب إليها. زيّفت روزان حقيقة مؤهلاتها وادّعت أنها طالبة في الجامعة، وانشغل تفكيرها بالقيل والقال والغيرة بين دائرة معارفها الاجتماعية.
