This matters to anyone with a 401(k) or a mutual fund. But it especially matters to the president, who has repeatedly used the market’s performance as a proxy for his performance in the White House. As the 2020 campaign intensifies, the market’s ups and downs will therefore take on even greater importance. Uber also sued New York City last month over cruising caps, saying the rules threatened its business model.
ST. PAUL — Days after nearly dying during cancer treatments, Hunter Cantrell, a 23-year-old university student, made what seemed a quixotic decision: He would run for the Minnesota House of Representatives to plead for affordable health care for all.

Schedule a TripSeven states reported rates for the M.M.R. vaccine that were far lower for kindergartners, including Kansas at 89.1 percent; New Hampshire, 92.4 percent; the District of Columbia, 81.3 percent. (The highest is West Virginia at 98.4 percent.) "The Windows 10 refresh cycle continued to be the primary driver for growth across all regions, although the magnitude of the impact varied according to local market conditions and the stage of the refresh cycle," Mikako Kitagawa, senior principal research analyst at Gartner, said in a statement. "For example, in Japan, PC shipments grew 55% in the third quarter of 2019, driven by the Windows 10 refresh cycle and a pending sales tax change. This strong growth helped propel the total worldwide PC market to growth."
When Ms. Ladensohn moved to Los Angeles in 2000, after graduating from the Wharton School of Business, she also aspired to make it in Hollywood, as a movie producer. But after a string of jobs at entertainment studios, she set out to start her own clothing and underwear line inspired by men's wear designs. Sloane & Tate has since grown in popularity, with celebrities including Miley Cyrus, Serena Williams and Mila Kunis sporting her pieces in magazine spreads. The increasing willingness to speak out contradicts tech giants' long-held culture of secrecy. But that culture is changing across the industry, with far more tech workers now starting grassroots efforts to speak out about social issues. Over 20,000 Google employees last November joined a walkout to protest the company's handling of sexual harassment allegations, while Microsoft, Wayfair and Salesforce workers have spoken out on their companies' work with federal immigration authorities.
Schedule a TripIn the second case, consumer and commercial conglomerate Honeywell had vulnerabilities preinstalled on Android devices controlling its industrial control systems. Any apps on the Android devices that Honeywell was using had extended privileges, so a potential attacker could have abused that security flaw and stolen passwords and documents. The company disclosed that vulnerability last September. With just 181 hp and 151 pound-feet, there isn't much more horsepower here than in a low-grade family sedan, but because the Miata is so small and so light, you make the most out of each pony and unit of torque. The best part is, it's possible to have a great time flinging a Miata around while everyone else is just on their morning commute -- its limits are so low and so approachable that you'll push yourself more often than you would in something with a lot more power and grip.
5. Kamala Harris told The Times she doesn’t want to “restructure society” or promise “beautiful sonnet” policies. So what does she want to do? Have you ever had to have a recall performed on your car? Or maybe warranty work? Was your dealer less than enthused about getting you scheduled to come in? It could be because the reimbursement rate from a manufacturer to a dealer for that work is significantly less than what standard retail repair work brings in. But that looks to be changing, at least in California.
Schedule a TripApple has added electrodes to the redesigned Apple Watch, which can measure the electric activity in the heart to detect heart diseases and irregular heartbeats that could lead to heart attacks and strokes. Try to log the recommended seven to eight hours. If insomnia is interfering with your nighttime rest, improve basic sleep hygiene like leaving screens out of the bedroom. Weighted blankets have also been shown to help end sleepless nights.
About the survey: The data in this article came from an online survey of 9,716 adults conducted by the polling firm SurveyMonkey from April 1 to April 7. The company selected respondents at random from the nearly three million people who take surveys on its platform each day. Responses were weighted to match the demographic profile of the population of the United States. The survey has a modeled error estimate (similar to a margin of error in a standard telephone poll) of plus or minus 1.5 percentage points, so differences of less than that amount are statistically insignificant. Jess spearheaded an exodus from Cafe Lounge to another nearby bar. "We've all had a few drinks, we're all wearing our hot first-date outfits, we're clearly all single," she said to the group. "Shall we get this party started?"
Schedule a TripHmm. So Wordpress.com has very clear policies around this. They have not had some of the pushback that Tumblr has. Underneath the metal sits a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that comes in two flavors. All 228i models get the less powerful tune with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The M235i makes 301 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic serves the driver no matter which variant as well.
The overwhelming majority — 86 percent — of reports with substantial wording changes were primarily negative in tone. But the minority that contained primarily positive language generally correlated with increases in share prices later. The French rubber-goods manufacturer has developed a strikingly similar tire that's expected to land on public roads within the next few years. The prototype name for this in-development product is Uptis, shorthand for Unique Puncture-Proof Tire System. Undoubtedly, the firm's marketing department will come up with something more appealing than that before the tires go on sale.

Some of these journalists work (or have worked) for establishment media outlets like the BBC, NPR, The Financial Times, Bloomberg, Al Jazeera, The Washington Post and The New York Times. Others are freelance photographers, or small website operators. On other games such as Mini Motorways, Oceanhorn 2 or Capcom's Shinsekai Into the Depths, the graphics reminded me of an iPhone or Switch game blown up to a 55-inch 4K TV. They lacked the crispness I saw on the small phone screen.
Schedule a TripUnder the Clean Air Act, the E.P.A. is required to use the “best system of emissions reduction.” The Obama-era options included switching to cleaner energy sources like gas, solar or wind; putting a price on carbon dioxide emissions; or using technology that could capture and store carbon dioxide rather than releasing it into the atmosphere. The Trump-administration rule, by contrast, focuses solely on new efficiency measures for individual plants. The Apollo astronauts of the '60s and '70s sometimes fell over while out moonwalking. The new suits will allow astronauts to bend at the knees, lift objects over their heads and fully rotate their arms.
Bernal’s victory, in a sense, is a full circle moment for his hometown, Zipaquirá, a small industrial and agricultural town north of Bogotá that is adjacent to the highlands where thousands of cyclists train everyday. Updated: Deals and availability confirmed on Monday, Nov. 26 at 8:15 p.m. PT.
Schedule a TripA trade group for small rural wireless carriers has said that it would cost up to billion for its dozen companies to replace their Huawei and ZTE equipment. It says that Huawei has 40 customers in the U.S. (Huawei is also a member of the trade group, the Rural Wireless Association.) Based on a fifth-generation Lexus LS sedan, the P4 autonomous driving test vehicle was shown publicly last January at CES in Las Vegas. This car illustrates the progress Toyota has made in creating a vehicle that offers Level-4 autonomous driving capability. According to the Society of Automotive Engineers, these systems should be able to perform "all aspects of the dynamic driving task, even if a human driver fails to respond appropriately to a request to intervene." In short, the P4 should pretty much handle itself, but a human driver will always be inside for two important reasons: to take control if necessary; and to comply with Japanese law.

Schedule a TripOne night, as a friend and I were headed to a bar to see someone I had met on a dating app, she asked, “What do you tell these guys?” I pulled up my profile and handed her my phone. The finer details are still a mystery, but this is the best look we've received of the electric SUV so far. The only other image Ford's provided since confirming the vehicle is a sole shadowy teaser of the Mustang-inspired SUV's rear end.
If you love comics, chances are you've read (and loved) Neil Gaiman's Sandman series from Vertigo and DC Comics. The comic tells the story of the moody Lord of Dreams and his dysfunctional and sometimes destructive family members Destiny, Death, Destruction, Despair, Desire and Delirium. The orange Pixel 4 could be delayed for Amazon pre-orders.
Schedule a TripCombine that with four microphones that let you amplify audio around you to better hear your real world, and special NFMI (near field magnetic induction) radios for bud-to-bud communication without delays or interference (or so they say), and this might be the most tech you've ever been able to fit into your ear. "I can only make a prediction at this point," he says, "but I can't imagine we're not going to find that a couple of our Gods don't start training really hard and start to work out a new muscle activation they didn't know they had or start to gain a little bit of bulk."
For more than a decade after the Brown decision in 1954, the federal government had done little to stop resistance. But beginning in the mid-1960s, for the briefest and rarest of moments, all three branches of government took the mandate of Brown seriously. The Supreme Court ruled that it was not enough for school districts to merely remove the language requiring segregation; they had to actually move bodies around and integrate their schools. Congress threatened to withhold federal funds from school districts that refused to desegregate, and the Justice Department began suing those districts that continued to resist. She-Hulk, Medusa, Dazzler and Singularity are some of the many amazing female superheroes connected to A-Force.

News of the plot renewed fears about the security at houses of worship, including churches and synagogues, which have been targeted repeatedly in recent years. It came at a time when hate crimes have been increasing, reaching a 16-year high last year, according to federal crime data. The Nobel Prize in physics for 2019 was awarded to three scientists on Tuesday for groundbreaking work on the evolution of the universe and Earth's place in it. Their discoveries have forever "transformed our ideas about the cosmos" and helped answer fundamental questions about existence, said the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
Schedule a TripWith Tuesday's release of Apple's iPadOS -- a dedicated operating system for the iPad, offering the tablets a suite of new features -- Apple not only helps position the iPad as a laptop competitor, but ups the ante on data security during a time of escalating mobile malware threats. Every new Mazda comes with a 7-inch touchscreen that the automaker brands as Mazda Connect. In addition to the touch interface, the system can be operated by a rotary knob on the center console. Standard features include AM/FM radio, auxiliary and USB ports, Bluetooth, and support for Aha, Pandora, and Stitcher Internet radio services. Satellite radio and navigation are both available as options, dependent on trim levels. An 8-inch version of the screen is standard on the 2018 Mazda6 and on the CX-9's Touring trim level. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay have long been unavailable, but fortunately Mazda is now introducing support for those technologies across the lineup -- as well as on older models sold since 2014.
Medicine has become something of a stealth family-friendly profession, at a time when other professions are growing more greedy about employees’ time. Jobs increasingly require long, inflexible hours, and pay disproportionately more to people who work them. But if one parent is on call at work, someone else has to be on call at home. For most couples, that’s the woman — which is why educated women are being pushed out of work or into lower-paying jobs. Google's Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL face unlock is one of its major security features, but BBC News discovered a glaring issue -- the biometric system gives access to the phone even if the owner's eyes are closed. The company promised on Monday to fix the problem with a patch.
Schedule a TripSen. Elizabeth Warren speaks during a protest in front of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau headquarters in November. At its Made by Google event in New York on Tuesday, Google unveiled a host of new hardware products. You'll need to wait until next spring for the new Pixel Buds, but you'll be able to put your preorder in today for the rest, including the Pixel 4 phones, Pixelbook Go laptop, Nest Mini speaker and Nest Wifi mesh router.
Infiniti provided a fleet of crossovers and SUVs for the journey, including the new 2019 QX50, as well as its QX60 and QX80. Interestingly, Infiniti doesn't have a dealership network in Mongolia, so its vehicles are almost as scarce as dinosaur bones 'round these parts. Samsung is best known as the world's biggest phone and TV maker, but it also sells more memory chips than any other company on the planet. It generates more revenue from semiconductors than any other vendor, including the former long-term leader, Intel. When prices and demand for chips fall, Samsung takes a hit.
