The measles virus is extremely virulent: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “you can catch measles just by being in a room where a person with measles has been, up to two hours after that person is gone.” The 4,000-passenger ship will instead carry Just Water, with a carton made mostly of paper, and a cap made of sugar cane. The company aims to switch its entire fleet over to the more sustainable drinking water option by the beginning of 2020, an effort that it says will eliminate six million single-use plastic bottles per year.

William Ferdie Brown was born on Dec. 2, 1940, in Yazoo City, Miss., and attended Grambling State University, where he played split end and linebacker under the storied coach Eddie Robinson. With Parliament dispersed, the focus last week shifted to the courts. In Scotland, Mr. Johnson suffered a defeat from a panel of judges, who ruled that his suspension of the House of Commons breached the constitution. It was designed, they said, to squelch debate on Brexit, not merely to set the stage for his government’s new legislative agenda.

“I got a call around 12:30 at night,” said Vercillo, who is in charge of acquisitions for a small publishing company. “It woke me up. My agent said: ‘Drake has rented the ice. Can you get over in 10 minutes?’” Charles M. Blow’s incisive critique of Joe Biden helped me to crystallize what exactly bothers me so much about Mr. Biden. His racism and hypocrisy, and his unwillingness to learn, listen or grow, are unnervingly disturbing to me, since he is the current front-runner.
Schedule a TripDuring his tenure as president, Mr. Powers spent much of his time clashing with Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, over the direction of the university and its funding. Still, he completed an eight-year fund-raising campaign that netted .1 billion and helped establish the university’s Dell Medical School. Mr. Martin met Mr. Scorsese when they were both film students at New York University in the 1960s. Obsessed with movies, they began to collaborate.

Schedule a TripThings have changed since then. U.S.T.’s endowment has almost doubled. A move to the Summit League, Esten said, would not be as costly as joining one of the so-called Power Five conferences. Esten declined to estimate U.S.T.’s budget in Division I, though it is likely to at least triple to account for scholarships, additional staff members and travel. Foer writes, “Although it may be a neoliberal myth that individual decisions have ultimate power, it is a defeatist myth that individual decisions have no power at all.” That is so true: Individual decisions have power, and despair is an awful option.
As with many other VW Group engines, the EA288 Evo can be jammed into just about everything. It'll be used in Audi vehicles with longitudinal engine layouts to begin with, but the automaker says it will be installed transversely in the VW Group's MQB-platform cars in the future. That means it could end up in the new VW Golf, the Arteon, the Euro-spec Passat and a bunch of other cars that won't ever come to the US. Today, Berrettini’s development is paying off. His serve, which registered 137 miles per hour on the radar gun and averaged 125 against Monfils, is a potent weapon born, in part, from his height and strength. So, too, his mighty forehand. But he also demonstrated the mental acuity to overcome the pressure, and four blown match points on Wednesday. As a junior he once blew 12 match points and lost, but he learned from it.
Schedule a TripOr as Mr. Foner, the professor, put it: “Trump could take the high road and say, ‘I’m going to be like Lincoln, and send it in writing.’” (The president has previously compared himself to Lincoln.) The shift is already underway in Diamniadio, an enormous planned development near the international airport, a showcase city connected to Dakar by a sleek highway and, coming soon, a high-speed rail line. The Senegalese government is moving many of its offices to Diamniadio from the congested downtown area.
Maybe a documentary take is the best way to revisit Baywatch -- the 2017 big-screen film, which starred Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, received five Golden Raspberry nominations in that worst-film competition. In the documentary, Mr. Tyrnauer interviews one ex-lover of Mr. Cohn and three cousins, including the writer Anne Roiphe. They described Mr. Cohn’s mother, Dora Marcus, as a domineering woman who, when a maid in her employ dropped dead, stored the body under a serving table in the kitchen while she continued Passover dinner.

Mr. Black, an outsize character in the vein of the president, has a long history with him. During Mr. Black’s 2007 trial, Mr. Trump was expected to be called as a witness to bolster Mr. Black’s defense. He was expected to fly to Chicago and testify that a lavish ,000 surprise party Mr. Black threw for his wife at the restaurant La Grenouille in New York — the bulk of which he charged to his company — was a business event, not a social event. Mr. Hariri did not respond to questions sent to his media team about his relationship with the model, Candice van der Merwe, or any gifts to her.

Then there was “Boundless Ocean, Vast Skies,” a song by the legendary Hong Kong rock band Beyond. The song evokes a yearning for freedom in spite of obstacles. Five years ago, it became the de facto anthem of the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement, eclipsing another song, “Raise the Umbrella,” which had been written to capture the spirit of the protests. But the song is relatively mellow; its appeal to the emotions is subtle. It does not have the swelling orchestral strains of “Glory to Hong Kong,” which seem to have channeled Hongkongers’ hopes, fears and despair in a unique way.
Nets guard Caris LeVert played for the first time since sustaining a subtalar dislocation of the right foot on Nov. 12 in a loss at Minnesota. LeVert, who had missed 42 games, finished with 11 points in nearly 15 minutes. Luis, you have a background in the Department of Defense. What does this response signal to you?

Schedule a TripOver a nearly 150-day period last year, the time between two major grand jury indictments of Russians for election interference, Mr. Mueller’s office was effectively silent. During that time, the president unleashed more than 90 tweets that were variations on a theme — the Russian interference campaign was a “hoax,” and Mr. Mueller was out to get him. In 1954, with a partner, a barber who soon dropped out, they formed the company that became Johnson Products. In the 1960s, it had an estimated 80 percent of the black hair-care market, and by 1970 it had annual sales of .6 million. It went public in January 1971.
Instagram has traditionally been mobile-focused, but last month Facebook said it plans to merge the backends of its messaging services, letting Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram users message each other without switching apps. “It is a rare feat for that long a period,” she said, referring to using buprenorphine during recovery to treat addiction. “It was kind of a success story.”
Schedule a TripThe One Too Many campaign “reminds passengers of their responsibilities and the severe consequences of drinking to excess,” said Karen Dee, chief executive of the Airport Operators Association. “These consequences range from being denied boarding to unlimited fines, flight bans and prison sentences for the most serious offenses.” The anticipated and hoped-for trend toward more openness in mainland China has been aborted and reversed since Xi Jinping came to power in 2013, when he cracked down on both corruption and even mild dissent, and then, in 2018, made himself president for life.

In a 7-2 vote, the Justices struck down a Texas statute banning abortion, effectively legalizing abortion across the country. To circumvent a shutdown, citizens have sometimes traveled for miles to get brief bursts of internet access.
The response from users was swift — and critical. Twitter received more than 8,000 pieces of feedback from people in more than 30 countries. Many said the draft made no sense, pointing out cases in which the policy would lead to takedowns of posts that lacked any negative intent. Decades ago, a college professor told my journalism class, “Writing is thinking.” Rarely have three simple words made such an impression on me.

I went to the imposing Cherokee government building in the capital, Tahlequah, where I met with Chrissi Ross Nimmo, the deputy attorney general of the Cherokee Nation. “Because of their willingness to reflect and improve and willingness to apologize, I was convinced that in our movement, the radical protesters and the peaceful protesters, we are still heading in the right direction,” she said.
Currently, desalination is largely limited to more affluent countries, especially those with ample fossil fuels and access to seawater (although brackish water inland can be desalinated, too). In addition to the Middle East and North Africa, desalination has made inroads in water-stressed parts of the United States, notably California, and other countries including Spain, Australia and China.
