"Our goal is to help protect the information people share on Instagram and encourage security researchers to report potential abuse to us so we can quickly take action," Instagram security engineering manager Dan Gurfinkel wrote in a blog post Monday. The company didn't specify how much it would pay researchers but said it would base the bounty on the impact and quality of their reports. There was a short pause.
The iOS version of Facebook Lite uses less data, saves space on your iPhone and can even work with 2G, according to its App Store description. It's also under 5MB to download. EGNER That’s a theory that’s been going around, basically holding that it wasn’t Littlefinger who we saw get killed at the end of Season 7 — that he had perhaps paid off a Faceless Man to take his place and will be making a return appearance. That seems far-fetched to me but it’s gotten some traction, to the point that some gambling sites are including Littlefinger in their prop bets for who will eventually sit on the Iron Throne.

A wife who is eligible for a higher retirement benefit should take the opposite tack: She can collect a reduced survivor benefit early and switch at 70 to her own retirement benefit.
Ultimately, military officials said, American counterterrorism forces could remain in Afghanistan even after the withdrawal of other troops, continuing to pursue the Islamic State or the hundreds of Al Qaeda fighters still there. In the current calculations for a peace deal, the Taliban could take part in future Afghan governments but must agree to not let terrorist groups plan and launch attacks from Afghan soil. The Danube accident was also one of the deadliest ship accidents involving South Koreans since the Sewol ferry disaster in 2014. The overloaded Sewol sank off the southwest coast of South Korea, killing 304 people, including 250 high school students, in one of its worst peacetime disasters. The Budapest boat sinking, and the likelihood of a rise in the death toll, shocked South Korea, which is still recovering from the previous tragedy.
Schedule a TripTRUE DETECTIVE 9 p.m. on HBO. Fresh off his Golden Globe win for “Green Book,” Mahershala Ali leads the third season of HBO’s time-jumping crime drama, which returns after a less-than-beloved second season. The locale this time is the Ozarks; the time periods are the 1980s, 1990s and 2010s; and the crime is a gruesome one involving children. As a level-headed detective, Ali (along with his partner, played by Stephen Dorff) investigates, while viewers are ping-ponged between decades — and see Ali’s character afflicted with dementia, struggling to explain the details of the case in a movie-within-a-show documentary. In his review of the season for The New York Times, James Poniewozik wrote that the season treads a lot of familiar ground, writing that “if you score ‘True Detective’ Season 3 on originality, it fails.” But he also noted: “If you treat it as a do-over — if the series, like one of its haunted antiheroes, is retracing its steps to try to get things right — then it’s fine. Often quite good. Far more consistent.” China’s richest internet moguls think their employees should work more.
Actress Ruby Rose will play Batwoman for The CW's Arrowverse shows. Ms. Patten of the truth in advertising group said the positive posts about the product that lack disclosures about financial incentives like trips would be considered endorsements.
Schedule a TripOn our last morning at Reelfoot, our fellow guests at the Dragonfly Inn were speculating at breakfast about why so many people are fascinated by eagles. “I think it’s because they’re so big,” one woman said. “So majestic.” Another woman looked at a preacher who happened to be sitting at the head of the table. “It’s Isaiah, isn’t it?” she asked: “But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” He nodded. The outbreak of violence appears to have begun on Friday, when a sniper wounded two Israeli soldiers, a violent but localized expression of Palestinian impatience with Israel’s failure to alleviate dire humanitarian conditions in Gaza.
BEIJING — Local officials in eastern China are investigating complaints that more than 100 children received expired polio vaccines after aggrieved parents protested violently over the weekend, the latest in a string of such vaccine scandals that have provoked anger nationwide. She added: “There’s a phrase I used to like, ‘Add Women, Change Politics,’ but it’s not the whole story. Absolutely add women. But just because we have more women doesn’t mean things are necessarily going to be gentle or more cooperative.”
Schedule a TripU.S.: Beto O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman and Democrat who came close to unseating Senator Ted Cruz in the midterm elections last year, announced he was jumping into the 2020 presidential race, entering an already-crowded field of diverse candidates and big-ticket proposals. The message, on a 4-inch-by-6-inch notecard, is fixed to Martinez’s locker, for all to see.
“Los lenguajes inmersivos está en plena ebullición y hay una gran demanda, tanto en festivales como en diseño de espacios, de este tipo de formatos”, afirma David Xirau, director de Mediapro Exhibitions. “En nuestra división de diseño, donde buscamos constantemente nuevas estrategias, estamos ensayando con formas artísticas, como las que se ven en nuestra cúpula 360º del festival Sónar, que en el futuro nos permitan encontrar las soluciones narrativas y visuales que buscan nuestros clientes de todo el mundo”. “You could’ve taken him,” he says.

That same day — Dec. 14, 2012 — the United Way of Western Connecticut, which as an established nonprofit was able to immediately receive tax-deductible contributions, worked with Newtown Savings Bank to create the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. A United Way news release said the goal was to “provide support services to the families and community affected by this senseless tragedy.” Millions of dollars began rolling in.
Other examples of facilities with poor conditions have trickled out in recent months through reports published by the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general, as well as from other lawyers who have occasionally been allowed in. Access to the facilities has been largely restricted, however, even as federal authorities have declared that the number of migrants on the border has escalated beyond their ability to safely handle. “What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass?” the poet Mary Oliver asks in her book “Dog Songs.” “What would this world be like without dogs?”

Schedule a TripRandall G. Schriver, an assistant secretary of defense, told reporters in May that the centers were “concentration camps” that held “at least a million but likely closer to three million citizens out of a population of about 10 million.” It was wall-to-wall party groups on a recent Friday, with more than a few birthdays celebrated with sparklers and flaming baked alaskas. Women in their 20s and 30s wore sparkly dresses and form-fitting denim, and were slightly outnumbered by men in their 40s, who were dressed down in baseball caps, dad jeans and even sweatpants.
A small 24-hour fitness center in the basement (what the hotel calls its garden level) offers several pieces of equipment, including one Peloton. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and dogs are welcome for a fee per stay. In addition to the comfy pillows already on the beds, a “pillow menu,” advertising soft, medium, firm, extra-firm, neck and body pillows, promises that your selection will be delivered “right to you.” Alas, the pillow buffet was not yet available during our stay. There is no room service, but the staff does try to give guests personal attention. They apparently made a note in the computer when I reserved the room that we were touring colleges with our son, something they remarked on more than once. Frustratingly, a few times during our stay, a call from my cellphone to the front desk went straight to voice mail. When I did get through to request that a luggage cart be sent to our room on the morning we checked out, the cart arrived in under four minutes. Here are five dishes for the week:

The teenage rapper, now 17, had been releasing songs on the streaming platform SoundCloud from his bedroom for about a year, using free instrumentals from YouTube as beats. But recording in a studio with a real producer still seemed like a luxury. Mr. Miller, his friend, said the prime minister had learned that it was important to be open “to a number of voices that you don’t necessarily want to hear but you have to for your own development.”

“Iran is under extreme pressure,” General McKenzie said, referring to the maximum-pressure campaign of economic sanctions that the Trump administration is employing against the country. He added that Iran was trying to “crack the campaign” with attacks to provoke an American military response. The sharp decline in bond yields and the correction last year have taken the backdrop for stocks “from hostile to hospitable,” he said. He also noted that sentiment is “so bearish and cautious,” which often occurs closer to bottoms in stocks than tops.

Good Monday. Programming note: I’m going to be in conversation with Blackstone’s Stephen Schwarzman about his new book, “What It Takes: Lessons in the Pursuit of Excellence,” the global economy and philanthropy for a DealBook TimesTalk in New York on Sept 16. Get your tickets here. (Was this email forwarded to you? Sign up here.) The Globes were draped in black, quite literally, with actresses and some actors vowing to use their attire to make a statement about sexual harassment in Hollywood and other spheres. Winners were expected to use their moments of glory to rail against the systemic sexism and silence that allowed the behavior of men like Mr. Weinstein, James Toback, Louis C.K. and Mr. Spacey to fester for decades.

That gives Ford a couple of auto shows to reveal the next truck -- including a rebooted North American International Auto Show in the company's backyard next June. The drugs are also costly: The anti-TNF drug Humira can run as much as ,000 per year, depending on a patient’s insurance.
“We tried to echo the architecture of the San Remo,” Mr. May said. “The foyer details and cornices were inspired by the Art Deco lobby of the building.” While attending a nursery plant sale on April 12 at the Butte-Glenn Community College in Northern California, where I work, I was exposed to an adult attendee with measles.

Together, they popularized “racial eugenics,” a junk science that made ethnically based racism respectable. “The day of the sociologist is passing,” said the Harvard professor Robert DeCourcy Ward, “and the day of the biologist has come.” The biologists and their publicists achieved what their political allies had failed to accomplish for 30 years: enactment of a law stemming the influx of Jews, Italians, Greeks and other eastern and southern Europeans. “The need of restriction is manifest,” The New York Times declared in an editorial, for “American institutions are menaced” by “swarms of aliens.”
As roommate chemistry goes, it’s hard to find a better pair than Caitlin Sikora and Chelsea Retzloff. When the two friends, who are in their early 30s, met through a dance workshop five years ago, they learned that Ms. Sikora had degrees in dance and physics, and Ms. Retzloff had degrees in dance and … chemistry. More recently, both wanted an upgrade from their rundown apartments. In the wake of past mass shootings, that’s typically included calls for even tighter gun control in the state that already has among the strictest gun laws in the nation.
