Taking It to Extremes: Mix insane situations -- erupting volcanoes, nuclear meltdowns, 30-foot waves -- with everyday tech. Here's what happens. Entries that involve wordplay are in bold.
The stark reality is that one might have a moderate to high confidence that decisions are being made by an American president who, in the process of getting elected and after assuming office, has acted with the interests of an often-hostile foreign power influencing him. But Mr. Trump has said for the past week that he wants to expand background checks and that Mr. McConnell is in favor of that as well.
Schedule a TripNowadays, automakers gladly offer any crossover essence you could want. Tugging big toys? Any of the truck-based machines from General Motors, Ford, Dodge, Toyota and Nissan will tow boats, water scooters and campers. Luxury starts with any of the small crossovers (Audi A3, Cadillac XT4 and Lexus UX for starters) and spirals up to the Maserati Levante, Bentley Bentayga and even Rolls-Royce with the Cullinan. যা পেলাম
The driver, 25-year-old Maurice Robinson, has been charged with 39 counts of manslaughter over the grisly discovery on Wednesday last week, along with conspiracy to traffic people, conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration and money laundering. The couple met in 2012 at Lutherdale Bible Camp in Elkhorn, Wis.

Smarter Living: People have lots of questions about Social Security, which is expected to pay .1 trillion to 69 million recipients of retirement and disability benefits this year. The Times answered some of those questions, including the big one: Can it last? (Yes, but …)
You're going to have to take my word for what the place looks like, including that Spielberg sketch. Magic Leap sequestered our video and photo crew in a conference room, with snacks, during our five-hour visit and only let them out to take images in a few approved areas. [Want more news from New York and around the region? Check out our full coverage.]
Schedule a TripThe last 10 days in Virginia have thrown all of that into disarray — and demonstrated that political power will always trump political idealism. But rather than throwing away their power in pursuit of moral purity, or cynically accepting the realities of American politics, the party is finding its way to a more calculated wisdom: that power and idealism may undermine each other, but they are also inextricably linked. MEDINAH, Ill. — Friday was perhaps the closest that Joe LaCava’s dream job will ever come to a nightmare. His boss, Tiger Woods, couldn’t get much going on or around the greens in his second consecutive round of one-under-par 71 at the BMW Championship, and LaCava had nowhere to hide from fans who feted him all the way around Medinah Country Club.
I'm scared. In the Game of Thrones, you either win or you die, Dan. Many of the comments I've read this week suggest the faith in Benioff and Weiss is all but gone or hanging on by a thread, like Ghost's right ear. On recent form, I believe we're headed for disappointment... What really bugs my correspondents is hearing the same unoriginal remarks, day in and day out.
Schedule a TripRaphael Ramos, a former sergeant in the Queens gang squad, said the 18th Street gang controls the lucrative trade in forged documents along Roosevelt Avenue between 90th Street and 82nd Street. Kent said she did not believe in upholding taboos against talking about or depicting sexual violence onscreen.
Mr. Sercarz, the spice merchant, says his father, Moshe, is even more of a stickler for freshness. Even if it means taking olives to the mill at midnight, he does not let them wait more than five hours after being picked before being pressed. That is why the oil has such pungency and power, the younger Mr. Sercarz said. What was your childhood like?
Schedule a TripAlthough the Trump administration has officially ended its policy of taking children away from their parents if families are caught crossing the border illegally, young children like José continue to be held in American immigration detention facilities, sometimes for months at a time, because of regulations requiring complicated screening procedures that the authorities say are intended to assure the children’s safety. More than two dozen people were killed over the weekend in shootings in two U.S. cities, underscoring the scale of gun violence in the country.
In Michigan, Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, has brought charges against seven priests in her statewide investigation, and she has promised to arrest and charge more. “I was born in war. I grew up in war. And I will be killed by war,” said Ms. Neyazi, the young teacher.
Schedule a TripThe scandal’s legal fallout is most likely only beginning, and it has already spread beyond the criminal indictments that federal prosecutors made public this week. It did — but not only in the way we intended. It got so tropical and steamy that the birds, who had been living together as a threesome platonically for over 10 years, got an idea in their groins. Two of them — Gonzo and Peanut — started having loud, unmistakable sex, and behaving like a pair. He regurgitated for her.
The president reached his decision after a meeting on Thursday at the White House with top national security aides, and concluded that a small increase would be sufficient. In the weeks I spent listening to Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast, I learned that lobsters have serotonin, that Elvis Presley suffered from parapraxis and that Mr. Gladwell adheres to a firm life rule that he drink only five liquids: water, tea, red wine, espresso and milk.
Schedule a TripWhen I was 9 years old, my father returned from the Taipei flea market carrying a turntable and a large stack of records. He played them incessantly. What especially sticks in my memory is Arthur Rubinstein’s recording of the Chopin mazurkas. There are no words to describe this one’s haunting beauty, expressive sophistication and provocative harmonies. It is among a handful of works that made me become a musician. A distinct approach predicated by a new set of partnerships and tactics are urgently needed in Guatemala. The Trump administration should align with the United States Congress, the international community and Guatemalan civil society to prevent the country from becoming a failed state. Take the president-elect’s dire assessment of his country’s insecurity seriously, demanding that his government provide reforms to alleviate poverty, attenuate violence and salvage democracy. There are no other good options either for Guatemala or for a United States concerned about border security and unauthorized migration.
An article on Monday about Karen Bermudez Rodriguez, a nanny who was killed along with her employer in New Jersey, misstated the given name of the man accused of killing them. His name is Joseph Porter, not Joshua Porter. Solutions: Addressing the crisis would require a major re-evaluation of land use and agriculture as well as consumer behavior, the report suggests. Proposals include increasing the productivity of land and eating less meat.
Schedule a TripThe FCC papers also list Oct. 13 as an operation start date, so it would seem we're unlikely to see the next Starship test flight before then. Leaders in Congress had strongly opposed the cuts.

Back inside the Mona Lisa viewing pen, Gregory Jimenez, 25, a college student from Chile, lifted his fancy camera above the heads of a row of people in front of him and took a shot. “You have to take a photo to be able to appreciate her,” he said as he walked out.

Taking It to Extremes: Mix insane situations -- erupting volcanoes, nuclear meltdowns, 30-foot waves -- with everyday tech. Here's what happens. State Senator Andrew Gounardes of Brooklyn introduced a proposal that would terminate the license of anyone with at least three moving violations in a year.
Schedule a TripStill, it's about as slick and cinematic as this kind of thing gets. You can definitely see where your Amazon Prime subscription has gone: the first episode's big firefight in the desert is as epic and violent as the very similar movie 13 Hours, which also starred Jim from the Office -- sorry, I mean John Krasinski. Mr. Hawkins said that the city could have been able to recover quickly from the attack had it agreed to purchase the off-site, cloud-based backups he had recommended in 2017. City officials balked at the price, and went for backups located on the same server, which the hackers sabotaged, he said.
Younger families talked about wanting to witness something as large and meaningful as the parade. Cliff Canfield, 48, said he had wanted to bring his 15-year-old daughter, Juliana, so she “could be a part of history.” She said the parade was noticeably different from her Connecticut high school, where, she said, talking about sexuality and identity is taboo. In July, after months of news stories about family separations and detention centers and inflammatory rhetoric, I asked him if the show ever would become political. If he and the producers truly believed that these were love stories and not instances of immigration fraud, shouldn’t they show that?
Schedule a TripI sought the counsel of Brian Cabral on the question of better training. He was a magnificent linebacker at the University of Colorado and played nine years in the N.F.L., earning a Super Bowl ring with the Chicago Bears. Then he returned to Colorado and became a linebacker coach. Those who sympathize with the white nationalist ideology but who deplore the violence should work closely with law enforcement to see that fellow travelers who may be prone to violence do not have access to firearms like semiautomatic assault-style weapons that are massively destructive.
Maxar Technologies provided a new high-resolution satellite image of the area captured the morning after the attack. A curious detail sent us down a new path of inquiry: The image showed another, smaller airstrike to a building less than 100 yards from the detention area. You first meet the driver, Vic (a soulful Chris Galust), in a cramped room, where he’s listening closely to a friend smoking in bed, identified only as his Confidant (James Watson), a profoundly disabled man with doe eyes who’s communing with Vic about love and other weighty issues. The Confidant is a philosopher of the heart whose words fill the room, swirling like the smoke from the cigarette that Vic takes from his mouth, tapping the ash before returning it to its perch. There’s no immediate point to the scene; in time, though, it reads like an epigraph and a declaration of intent.
Schedule a TripMr. Williams, also 31, is a commercial real estate analyst in the Columbus office of Grandbridge Real Estate Capital, a commercial mortgage brokerage. He graduated from Davidson College, in Davidson, N.C., and received an M.B.A. from Ohio State University. En muy pocas ocasiones todavía compartíamos el almuerzo, durante el cual me sentía como el público del espectáculo de una persona; era tan solitario como cuando era ignorada en casa. Ahora un martes aburrido en la oficina era un martes cualquiera.
“I looked down and saw something strange underneath a small boulder,” Mr. Hofer wrote in a Facebook post. “I thought it looked like a bone of some kind, and after closer inspection, it was indeed a human skull.” Traveling to Israel is a rite of passage for members of Congress, especially freshmen. Representative Kevin McCarthy, the Republican leader, and Representative Steny H. Hoyer, the Democratic leader, held a joint news conference in Jerusalem on Sunday, along with dozens of members, in a show of bipartisan support.
