It is believed that the list of teams was given to the Pelicans in hopes of increasing the chances Davis is dealt this week. New Orleans has considerable incentive to delay trading Davis until closer to the draft in June, when the Boston Celtics — who are not on the list but have the biggest cache of trade assets for Davis — are eligible to trade for him. Van's offers some old-school orange NASA shoes and star-patterned kicks for kids.
But Mrs. May disputed the notion that she was racist, writing to a grant recipient in November 1994, “Can we not put imaginary paper bags over the immigrants’ heads, see them as colorless consumers, and count only their deleterious numbers?” Happy birthday, Android.
One unidentified member of the brass says at the beginning of the episode that “Spock’s foreknowledge of these signals appearing around the galaxy and his interactions with the Red Angel constitute vital intelligence.” O.K., so why treat him as a murder suspect? Why not work with him to learn more? It's worth noting the real-life history between Kate McKinnon and Gillian Anderson, who plays ice-cold MI5 leader Wendy. McKinnon made her obsession with Anderson loud and public in a 2008 YouTube video, so scenes with Morgan fangirling over Wendy have an extra layer for those in the know.
Next up is “Private View,” where Vanek is subjected to the antics of a well-off couple (Christopher Marshall and the very funny Emily Kron) working the system to their advantage. The humor is heavy-handed enough to make a dent against an Iron Curtain, and the piece descends into the type of absurdist farce that has not aged well. There's been a light show in night skies recently and it's heating up right now as the annual Taurid meteor shower reaches its peak.
In Los Angeles, which has the third-largest police department, detectives do not generally ask witnesses to hunt through photos on the basis of a physical description, a police department spokeswoman said. However, in cases where there is a suspected gang connection, detectives will sometimes direct victims to look through mug shots of people believed to belong to a gang. Those searches have also faced criticism because the alleged gang connections can be tenuous. If you don't have electrical tape on hand and you can't wait to get some Light Dims in the mail, there is another way, though admittedly less attractive.
But with Republicans in charge of the White House and the Senate, the centrists argue that Congress needs to start with more incremental initiatives that could be slipped into larger bills, such as restoring money to enroll people in health plans on the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges. Other bills have bipartisan support; a measure drafted by Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, would create state-based reinsurance programs to help pay large health insurance claims, thus lowering premiums on the act’s exchanges.

Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota is the latest woman to join the 2020 field, kicking off her campaign on Sunday. In the run-up to her announcement, she faced headlines about her well-known reputation in the Senate as a difficult boss. Whether she is held to a different standard than men remains to be seen: Male politicians pressure and berate staff members too, and, like Ms. Klobuchar’s Senate office, President Trump has had high employee turnover. Unlike other social networks, Gab doesn't ban hate speech. Hate speech is protected under the First Amendment, though private companies can choose to prohibit it in their forums.
