This time, the commander in chief suggested on Tuesday, might the Fourth of July be more conducive for a celebratory march? Imagine what the internet would look like if tech executives could be jailed for failing to censor hate and violence.
Danish officials have been particularly concerned by how technological change is causing challenges that have afflicted other Western democracies: the spread of false and politically divisive content on social media, questions about privacy and data-hungry services, cybersecurity and the low taxes the companies pay outside the United States. L.S.U. never trailed against Yale but still had to fend off a spirited second-half surge to win, 79-74. The fourth-seeded Tigers scored the game’s first nine points and led by 18 points in the second half before the No. 13 Bulldogs pared that deficit to as few 3 with less than a minute remaining. Skylar Mays, one of four Tigers to score at least 10 points, went 4 for 4 from the foul line in the final 12 seconds to boost L.S.U., which played a third straight game without its coach, Will Wade, who is suspended after being connected to a recruiting scandal.

But the plane — the same Boeing model that went down in Indonesia in October, killing all 189 people on board — lost contact with air traffic controllers six minutes after takeoff. It then plummeted to the ground near Bishoftu, a town southeast of the capital.

That sets these Cardinals apart from their last championship team in 2011. Those Cardinals were a wild-card team, but they led the N.L. in runs scored and beat three Philadelphia Phillies aces — Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt and Roy Halladay — in a first-round upset. They battered another ace, the Milwaukee Brewers’ Zack Greinke, in the N.L.C.S., and ravaged the Texas Rangers’ bullpen in the World Series. Gap made the announcement as it reported dismal financial results, particularly for its namesake brand. Gap’s comparable sales declined 5 percent in the past year compared with increases at Old Navy and Banana Republic, the company said. It also said that it planned to close about 230 Gap stores in the next two years, as it aims to find the right balance between sales online, in its regular stores and from outlet locations.

It’s just barely possible that Britain, the nation that ushered in the Industrial Revolution and its explosive carbon emissions, might also be the first to make a serious effort to undo the damage. The term of Mr. Temer, 78, expired in January. The end of his presidency left him exposed to numerous criminal investigations that he had kept at bay by availing himself of the legal protections afforded to elected officials in Brazil while they are in office.

And SHoP conceived the twisty 14-story mixed-income condo project called 242 Broome, whose shimmery facade in anodized aluminum changes color with the shifting light, picking up on the sepias of nearby brick buildings, the blue of the sky. Architecturally the most memorable design, 242 leans over the sidewalk to the west and steps out toward the street-wall on the south, bonding on the north like a conjoined twin with a new home (opening in January, fingers crossed) for the International Center of Photography, whose entrance is a transparent glass curtain wall framed like an old Polaroid snapshot. And politically, rural America is increasingly a world apart. For example, overall U.S. public opinion is increasingly positive toward immigrants. But rural Americans — many of whom rarely encounter immigrants in their daily lives — have a vastly more negative view.

One email from a Planned Parenthood employee, viewed by The New York Times, warned that the new pages would be “risky for the brand” because it often “gets dinged in the press when we suggest that we provide services we don’t.” His distinctive achievements should be further secured in a few years, when he will almost certainly become the first player to be inducted into the halls of fame in both Japan and the United States.

Motivation comes from an all-electric drivetrain with four motors, though the production model probably will use gasoline engines.

To get it, Epstein, the Cubs’ president of baseball operations, brought back nearly the entire roster from 2018, dropping no significant players and adding only at the margins: infielder Daniel Descalso and relievers Brad Brach and Xavier Cedeno. But this group will run out of chances, Epstein said, if it continues to struggle as it did down the stretch.
Schedule a TripLearn from Britain. So far, the country has managed to make e-cigarettes available for adults who want to quit using regular cigarettes without triggering an epidemic of nicotine dependence among its youth. Public health experts say at least part of that success is due to the way these products are regulated in Britain. Packaging and advertising are tightly restricted — no bright, colorful labels or kid-friendly media campaigns allowed. And the nicotine content is capped. In America, where there are no such limits, e-cigarettes often contain more than twice as much nicotine as they do in Britain and are still being sold in ways designed to appeal to young children. All concerned were fully and joyfully aware of what the victory meant. The Chicago Cubs, who had led the division and the Mets by 10 games in mid-August, had won their afternoon game, precluding the possibility that the Mets would clinch before taking the field.
Some of Ischomachus’s narrative reads like the script of a “Tidying Up” episode, minus the drama of discarding — although even Kondo reminds her clients that “elimination” is not an end in itself. Ischomachus and his wife begin organizing their house by collecting all of their possessions. Adhering to the cardinal rule of the KonMari method, they sort their stuff not by room but “kind by kind,” that is, by category: clothes, books, papers, “komono” (miscellaneous) and sentimental items for Kondo; vessels, clothing and armor, crockery, etc. for Ischomachus. Another bit of Kondo advice is to store everything so that it’s visible in “one glance” and easily accessible. Ischomachus recommends the same to his wife, explaining that disorder is for foolish farmers who store all of their harvest crops in the same bin and can’t find anything when they actually need it. What’s remarkable about those top three is that they have radically different systems. Britain has true socialized medicine — direct government provision of health care. Australia has single-payer — it’s basically Bernie down under. But the Dutch rely on private insurance companies — heavily regulated, with lots of subsidies, but looking more like a better-funded version of Obamacare than like Medicare for All. And the Netherlands actually tops the Commonwealth Fund rankings.

Anthony Ciampi, a cardiac telemetry nurse at NewYork-Presbyterian and a vice president of the union, said nurses sometimes have to care for as many as 15 patients at a time. “That’s not fair and it makes no sense,” he said. The environment at Huawei could allow for the intentional introduction of an exploitable flaw that would be lost in the background noise of poor practices, the official said. The official added that the intelligence community did not expect to find overt, smoking-gun “back doors” in Huawei code clearly meant to permit illicit access to network data. Instead, it expects “bug doors” — flaws that can be explained away as a mere mistake if they come to light, but that can be exploited for the same purposes by China or by other sophisticated actors who discover them.
