Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg meets Congress this week. For now, we humans can at least enjoy the amiability of dogs. Looking at Xephos as we wrapped up our conversation, he said, “It’s not strange that she wants to interact with me. What’s strange is that she wants to be friends with you. Right?”
After years of stability, medallion prices soared from 0,000 in 2002 to more than million in 2014. Some industry leaders have admitted to intentionally causing prices to spike. During that time, revenue generated by taxis barely changed. “It’s been tough for sure to watch and to listen sometimes; I had to just unplug from it. The saddest part is the victim-shaming, the not believing,” said Anne Kursinski, a five-time Olympian who came forward last year about being abused as a minor by Mr. Williams. As an adult, Ms. Kursinski was coached by Mr. Morris in several Olympic Games, and she credits him with “putting me on the map.” She has said she never witnessed abuse by Mr. Morris.

At the Latino Issues forum the next morning, Ms. Harris said she believed Immigration and Customs Enforcement needed to be radically restructured, calling it the most dysfunctional federal agency.
Maintaining a garden could also serve as a hobby for crew members during monotonous months. “It’s kind of like, why do people like flowers?” Mr. Kelly said. “When you are living in an environment that is very antiseptic or laboratory-like, or on Mars, it would be pretty devoid of life with the exception of you and your crewmates. Having something growing would have a positive psychological effect.” Responsiveness (Do they reply to my emails and texts? Do I hear from them on a consistent basis?)

Schedule a TripOn Thursday, these nine women, plus another five who allege sexual assault at the hands of Uber drivers, sent a plea to the company's board of directors asking it to release them from the private arbitration agreement. (Update: Uber agreed on May 15 to drop arbitration agreements for victims of alleged sexual assault). “The next day I was in the hospital,” he told The St. Paul Pioneer Press last week, recalling how tiring the celebration was. “The event was great, though; the Vikings did a spectacular job of treating the players nice.”
Geneva is also known for its oddball cars, and this year is looking like no exception. We saw the Zerouno roadster from Italdesign and a four-door EV from Giugiaro. Rinspeed showed off its Snap concept, which we covered at CES in January. George-Ilias Belidis, a resident of Tirana, a city of 900,000, was sleeping in his apartment when the powerful, seemingly interminable tremor jolted him awake. He experienced the quake “in all its rage” — and thought his end had come, he said.

Schedule a TripThe Flash and his friends spent the last year dealing with Cicadas, the return of Eobard Thawne (aka Reverse Flash), and the surprise arrival from the future of Barry and Iris' daughter Nora West-Allen (aka XS). “Oh, yeah,” he said, as if it were no big deal. As if I hadn’t developed a relationship with that shirt. As if it didn’t mean something to me.
New automobiles are reaching dealerships with all manner of sophisticated lifesaving technology, like collision-warning systems and automatic braking. But older cars can be outfitted with similar systems, too, and a study suggests it can make driving safer for you — or your teenager. The organization is gearing up for a critical year as it tackles the 2020 presidential election as well as its 2020 Transgender Survey.
Schedule a TripThe Versa 2, however, can show you what heart rate zone you're in during a workout, such as cardio or fat burn, which I appreciate. Only the Apple Watch offers you on-wrist cadence tracking so you can see your steps per minute, plus pace alerts for running that can notify you if you fall below your chosen pace. You can see your pace on the wrist for the Versa 2, but you won't get alerts. Most Pirates start out as volunteers, helping with trash or performing other tasks so as to attend for free. Then they have their “trash moment,” as the Pirates put it, the epiphany that turns volunteer work into a career, and trash into a calling.
He and other opponents of the agreement noted that despite Thursday’s announcement, Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare’s government had previously welcomed China Sam executives to the country. And during Mr. Sogavare’s recent trip to China, which followed the country’s decision to cut ties with Taiwan and establish formal relations with Beijing, he met with China Sam’s senior leaders. You know, this is not a man who had any qualifications except one: He wrote a check for a million dollars.
Schedule a TripA small group of people gathered around me. My flip-flop was now probably on its way to Coney island, the last stop, I said. Our children are our future, and while in my reporting I have found that our history — that is, the history of all our people — is not being taught in most schools these days, the need to combat malicious memes that are trying to fill that gap needs all the attention it can get.

As part of the treatment, surgeons replaced part of his tongue with a slab of arm flesh during a procedure to remove cancerous cells. Now more than ever, authors and illustrators are creating books that push readers’ expectations. Sometimes it’s unusual physical dimensions — luxuriously tall and broad, or satisfyingly chunky. Sometimes it’s especially lavish illustrations. Sometimes it’s whiz-bang pop-up art (or, as it’s called now, “engineered paper”).
The next year, Mr. Pasternak took a sabbatical from teaching at local day schools and flew with his family to Israel, where he visited Hasidic enclaves like Bnei Brak and recorded another batch of songs that had never been published, his daughters Shira Pasternak Be’eri and Naava Pasternak Swirsky said. The music was published as “Songs of the Chassidim II.” Another Pirate, Stephen Chun, talked about the awkward moment when he is asked what he does for a living. “A lot of people are like, ‘Huh, that’s nice. Good for you,” he said. “The feedback over time goes from being, ‘Oh, you’re the trash guy’ to, ‘Oh, you’re a hero.’ Now I say I’m a zero-waste events consultant.”
Schedule a TripWheat Thins were never like this. The crackers that I once doted on delivered grain and salt, but never herbal Middle Eastern za’atar; golden, peppery hawaij, a blend of turmeric and other spices from Yemen; or North African harissa, with its ruddy tint and vibrant heat. But those are the flavors in a new line of crackers made for New York Shuk, which specializes in Middle Eastern pantry items, using wheat from Hayden Flour Mills in Queen Creek, Ariz. Serve them for scooping dips, with soup, or crumbled, to top a casserole. Hang, David and LeeRoy are riding a Ferris wheel at the county fair. As the wheel turns, a yellow butterfly lands on David’s hand, which is sticky with melted popsicle. Hang sings the butterfly song again and at last David joins her. LeeRoy knows the melody, too. To him, it’s “Frère Jacques.” By the time their car reaches the top, all the kids are singing — in Vietnamese, English, French and Spanish — and the words of a sweet, silly childhood song become a bridge, one Hang uses to make her way across the deep gulf of time to her brother.

PHOENIX — The original owner of the Milwaukee Brewers, Bud Selig, has always insisted his team lost the 1982 World Series because of an injury to the Hall of Fame closer Rollie Fingers. All these years later, well past Selig’s long tenure as commissioner, it remains the only World Series appearance in franchise history. ‘VIOLET HOLDINGS: LGBTQ+ HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE N.Y.U. SPECIAL COLLECTIONS’ at Bobst Library (through Dec. 31). With the Stonewall Inn now a National Historic Landmark (and a bar again; it was a bagel shop in the 1980s), nearby New York University has produced a homegrown archival exhibition at Bobst Library, across the park from Grey Art Gallery. Organized by Hugh Ryan, it takes the local history of queer identity back to the 19th century with documents on Elizabeth Robins (1862-1952), an American actor, suffragist and friend of Virginia Woolf, and forward with ephemera related to the musician and drag king Johnny Science (1955-2007) and the African-American D.J. Larry Levan (1954-92), who, in the 1980s, presided, godlike, at a gay disco called the Paradise Garage, which was a short walk from the campus. (Cotter) 212-998-2500, library.nyu.edu
