The main course would be something from the sea (the fishmonger’s stand was steps away). I couldn’t decide between a quick spicy sauté of calamari, or a boneless piece of fish roasted over thyme branches, a nearly effortless technique that produces great results. I flipped a coin. The squid won out. Mrs. Pierce, 32, owns Nolita Projects, a Brooklyn-based consulting firm focusing on creative project management. She graduated from N.Y.U., from which she also received a master’s degree in art history focusing on the influence of cybernetics on the Minimalist art movement.
It helped that she was accepted last week at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “It was like a huge cloud lifted, because I can actually go to a college now,” she said. But her wait continues. MR: A more legitimate artist, in my opinion, than Jeff Koons. But that’s just me, sorry.
“Our response to this crime will have no limits,” Islamic Jihad said, calling the strike “a declaration of war against the Palestinian people.” Mr. Khashoggi had been barred from writing in Saudi Arabia as part of a broader crackdown on dissent in the country, and he had gone into self-imposed exile in the United States. There, he continued his criticism of the Saudi royal family in his columns for The Washington Post.
In 2017, Swedish prosecutors set aside the rape case and the extradition request, saying that the effort was moot with Mr. Assange in the embassy.

After national guardsmen began firing tear gas at the protesters, hope of an agreement between the two sides seemed to slip away. Flash forward to the era of Lyndon B. Johnson. In his first two decades in Congress, Johnson opposed every civil rights bill to come his way — only to turn around and fight for the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and, as president, the more sweeping Civil Rights Act of 1964. Historians have thoroughly documented Johnson’s fondness for racial slurs, and some people have suggested that political opportunism rather than moral concerns drove his change of heart. Whatever Johnson’s personal views, he dug in and committed to killing Jim Crow. When White House aides warned him that championing the 1964 bill was a lost cause that would ultimately damage his chances at re-election, he famously replied, “Well, what the hell’s the presidency for?”
To the princes, whose countries are closely allied, Mr. Broidy was a perfect messenger to try to turn the new American administration against Qatar.

With important municipal elections coming up next year and the Greens benefiting from solid support in France’s cities, Mr. Macron has his eyes on the polls. France’s leading pollster, Jerôme Fourquet, writing in the newspaper Le Figaro, recently described rising environmentalism as possibly the “new matrix” underlying the nation’s cultural identity, taking the place once occupied by Catholicism. Mr. Greene showed artistic talent from a young age. Upon noticing his skills, an aunt helped pay his tuition to Parsons School of Design, which he attended for a while. But when his parents insisted that an art degree would not lead to a stable career path, Mr. Greene enrolled at New York University, earning a bachelor’s degree in education in 1949.
