A storied British actress named Edna Parker Watson and her doltish husband flee London when the Blitz destroys their house. They, too, are taken in by Peg, and the fulcrum of the book is the musical that’s created as a vehicle for Edna, which ends up saving the playhouse from financial ruin, though Vivian transgresses in a spectacular fashion. As I’ve thought back on the hour that we spent talking, I’m most struck by Buttigieg’s combination of ambition and realism. His agenda is highly ambitious, spanning much higher taxes on the rich; both a Green New Deal approach and a carbon tax; statehood for Washington, D.C., and potentially Puerto Rico; abolition of the Electoral College; a less politicized Supreme Court; and more.
STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER How exactly is J.J. Abrams going to run with the baton that “The Last Jedi” left him? Will Rey really turn out to have come from nothing? Is that little kid with the broom a Jedi? Will die-hard fans cry heresy no matter where this movie goes? (The answer to that last question is probably yes.) Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver return to that galaxy far, far away. “Eating good Persian food can be a very beautiful, communal experience,” said Ghavamian, 27, a filmmaker who sought political asylum after Iran’s 2009 elections and hasn’t returned to his home country in 11 years — a perpetual source of angst, he said. “I was feeling very disconnected and lonely, and I wanted to share this with people.”
The law also lays out a four-year timeline for the labor ministry to review at least half a million existing contracts. Many of those are probably invalid because they were never approved by workers, said the labor minister, Luisa María Alcalde. Rabbi Taub, the Israeli-based grand rabbi of the Kaliv Hasidim, died at 96 on April 28 at his home in Jerusalem. His funeral took place the same day, and thousands of Hasidim crowded the plaza outside to mourn.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Wilson Ramos, the Mets’ new catcher, drove his black Lexus LX 570 into the parking lot at the team’s spring training facility shortly after 8 a.m. last Friday. A sign with his No. 40 uniform number was affixed to the chain-link fence by his space, but there were no digits or letters on his front license plate, only an illustration. It featured a pair of neon green horns atop a catcher’s mask. Ramos is, after all, known as The Buffalo. By purchasing parts together, combining their manufacturing operations and sharing the cost of research and development, the partnership would eventually save 5 billion euros, or .6 billion, per year, Fiat said. At the same time, Fiat said, the deal would not result in any plant closings.
An offshoot brand of Huawei, Honor phones are often value buys with solid specs that dip below the top of the line, compared to Huawei's top models like the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. Honor phones sometimes contain overlapping specs with Huawei-branded devices, but for a lower price. Huawei, the world's third-largest smartphone maker behind Apple and Samsung, continues to expand its portfolio of midrange and high-end devices. Is there anything you think we’re missing?

Good Friday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today. They’ve hung several special pieces of artwork, including the Röntgen family crest and an heirloom painting of Mr. Röntgen’s German ancestor, Johan Nicolaus Weber, who accompanied Capt. James Cook on a sea voyage during the mid-1700s.
Few finds are 90 percent intact, as Sue was (named for her discoverer, Sue Hendrickson). One T. rex so far was found to have a kind of bone that was said to clearly identify it as female. But even that result is controversial. A man distributed fliers addressed to residents of the block “and everyone in New York City” that listed the address of the building said to belong to Mr. Kanders and contended that his company’s tear gas had been used on migrants at the Mexican border, on Palestinians in Gaza and on protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo.
