The slowing sales stem in part from a change in consumer demand toward S.U.V.s and away from sedans, but she said that Mr. Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum have hit both manufacturers and parts suppliers, increasing “the price of vehicles.” Morant’s shooting has improved, too, with both his 2- and 3-point percentages up.
Essentially, MLB wants to slim down to four levels of minor league baseball: Triple-A, Double-A, Advanced Class A and Class A. The short-season and rookie leagues would be eliminated, including the entire Pioneer League, which has eight teams in Montana, Idaho, Colorado and Utah, as well as the Appalachian League for all intents and purposes (the only team that would survive is its top-drawing franchise in Pulaski, Virginia). Mr. Trump created a controversy where none needed to exist. Israel has been under no pressure to end the occupation of the Golan, which began during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War with the seizure of some 400 square miles by Israeli troops.
Schedule a TripJACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Anti-money-laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank recommended in 2016 and 2017 that multiple transactions involving legal entities controlled by Donald J. Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, be reported to a federal financial-crimes watchdog. From The TimesAfter a racist video surfaced, private school students protested with an overnight lock-in.
AN says that Cadillac hit its first major diesel-related speed bump when Volkswagen's diesel crisis broke in 2015, but the company soldiered on, even after its development partner, Opel, was split off from General Motors and sold to the French. Basketball Reference has tracked block percentage back to the 1973-74 season, and the top-four seasons among players with 100 or more blocks belong to Manute Bol, the 7-foot-7 shot-blocking savant. No. 5 on the list belongs to Robinson.

But the MIROSKII ICO appears to be an elaborate fake. The idea is to create as many alternatives to meat as is possible, and Mr. Friedrich is using every tool at his disposal, from incubating new companies to starting venture capital funds, two of which have been spun out of the Good Food Institute.
Schedule a TripBut Wendy is suffering, too, which is one reason she wants to sell their home. When Chuck responded by divulging a story of emotional abuse from his childhood — in which the lesson from his mercurial father was that all women crave domination — Wendy was horrified, of course. She isn’t out to compound Chuck’s anguish by destabilizing his home. She is selling the house not to punish him, but to move beyond her own painful memories. And she’s probably doing it for his sake, as well. “My administration has made it a top priority to ensure that U.S. taxpayers’ dollars are spent effectively and wisely, serve American interests and defend American values,” Mr. Trump said. He noted, not for the first time, that the United States was the bank’s biggest donor and said that Mr. Malpass “has been a strong advocate for accountability at the World Bank.”

Schedule a TripGosh, the last sketch of the night had everything: a solid premise — “Dog Court.” A great lead character with Cecily Strong playing a Judge Judy-type, presiding over a courtroom that adjudicates canine cases. Lots of cute dogs. The works. And finally, unexpected bit of live TV mayhem, when at one point, Strong held on unruly pug in her hands that didn’t seem to want to be held. These subjects are often under threat either from budget cuts or from the inexorable demands of academic testing and “accountability,” but insights from neuroscience suggest that arts education can play additional important roles in how children learn.
The drawing shows a stick figure underneath two light-emitting objects that have previously been interpreted as either the sun and the moon or two stars in close proximity. But a new paper published in the Indian Journal of the History of Science (PDF) makes a case that the carving depicts the moon next to a supernova. And not just any stellar explosion. A specific one. There are real-world consequences: Through Tuesday’s games, Greensboro ranked 81st in KenPom’s overall ratings, lagging behind East Tennessee State (71st) and Furman (55th), against whom they combined to win four of five games this season. (The N.C.A.A.’s new NET metric, which the tournament selection committee is using to evaluate teams this year, is only slightly kinder: It has the Spartans 58th.)
Schedule a TripAides to former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado recommended he drop out of the primary and challenge Senator Cory Gardner, considered to be one of the most vulnerable Senate Republicans. He proposed that Mr. Trump take the additional money from the Treasury Forfeiture Fund and the Defense Department accounts used to support counterdrug activities and efforts to block drug smuggling — congressionally approved funds that the president already plans to use. But Mr. Alexander told reporters on Monday that he had not spoken with the White House about his idea.
Specifically, 16% of respondents plan to buy a gadget like that in the next year, compared to 8% who plan to buy a home security system. HURLEY (2019) Rent on Amazon, Fandango Now, Google Play, iTunes and Vudu. Near the beginning of this documentary, the driver Hurley Haywood is asked what makes him a legend of Daytona. He offers a basic response: “I guess the fact that I won it five times.” Haywood is a soft-spoken racer who rose to fame in the 1970s, after he won the two best-known 24-hour races, Daytona and Le Mans, in the same year. But the documentary focuses on another fact about him: Throughout his career, he had hid his sexuality. Through interviews and archival footage, the film reframes Haywood’s life as the story of a closeted gay man in the hyper-macho world of late-20th-century auto racing.
Schedule a TripHe said a member of Parliament had provided him with a list of officials in the government of President Hassan Rouhani — seen as a reformer — who are also citizens of countries deemed hostile to Iran. These include Britain, the United States and Canada. Iranian hard-liners have regularly raised the issue in Iran’s Parliament, prompting heated debate, and soon after one of these exchanges, the lists were widely reported. Further complicating the issue is that some fractures “straddle the line” between hard and easy to heal, Dr. Vosseller said.

The Czech Republic’s cybersecurity agency has issued warnings about Huawei and other Chinese telecom companies, though the government remains divided over a ban. Poland earned praise from Vice President Mike Pence for its actions against Huawei, which included arresting one of its employees on espionage charges. But as Poland courts Chinese investment, it is unclear if it will embrace a full ban.

Lowry also changed his caddy, which he said had helped his course management. He credits his new caddy Bo Martin with keeping him grounded under pressure. Martin and Neil Manchip, Lowry’s coach, have helped him not get too negative when results are not there. “If this new digital world, which is supposed to be so much better and supposed to help us all solve centuries-old challenges, actually compounds those problems, it will be in part because there’s not enough people fighting for the public interest,” Mr. Walker said.
Schedule a TripTwo quantitative variables are associated if they tend to vary together in a predictable way. (The term correlated is reserved for associations that are linear.) Even if two variables have a strong association, this alone is not enough to conclude that changes in one variable cause changes in the other variable. Other variables may cause this association. Brauner said fame hadn’t changed the cats. “We try to keep them grounded,” she joked. “We’re good parents and make sure it doesn’t go to their heads.”
Mr. Bernhardt separately is under federal investigation not only for the allegations that he helped weaken Endangered Species Act protections to free up water for Westlands, but that he continued lobbying for Westlands after formally de-registering as a lobbyist, and that he intervened to block a scientific report showing a pesticide’s harmful effects on some endangered species. Ashley Jacques remains a member of the Marine Corps Reserve. He’s been deployed to Iraq and currently serves about one weekend a month and two weeks a year as a military police officer in Brooklyn, according to a spokesman for the Marines.
Schedule a TripForecasters said the hurricane would move “dangerously close” to the Florida coast, beginning late Tuesday night and continuing through Wednesday evening. Then it is expected to move northward to affect the Georgia and South Carolina coasts beginning late on Wednesday. By the end of the week it is expected to be shadowing the coasts of North Carolina and Virginia. Demography is not destiny, either. Even if, several decades from now, whites do become a racial minority, they will not automatically lose much of their vast economic and political power, because this is America, where inequality is tolerated and an aggrieved and wealthy political minority can hold sway indefinitely, thanks to the Senate and the Electoral College.
The new season of “Saturday Night Live” will not begin for two more weeks, but the long-running sketch comedy series is already drawing scrutiny for a new hire who has yet to appear on the show. Mr. Cohen’s testimony took me back to the summer of 1973, when I was moving to Washington to become NBC’s White House correspondent. Specifically, to the testimony of a former White House counsel, John Dean, and his description of President Richard Nixon’s knowledge of the Watergate affair. Mr. Dean, like Mr. Cohen, had once been a confidant of a vindictive president who turned on him.
Schedule a TripStill, at times, the four-day summit did seem like a significant turning point for the church. The flaws came further to light on Thursday when Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit announced that he would indict the prime minister on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Netanyahu called the inquiry “a witch hunt” and accused Mandelblit of being “weak,” sounding (surely not by coincidence) just like Donald Trump on the subject of Jeff Sessions and the Russia investigation.
Even when he decided to step back from his involvement in making player personnel decisions, Mr. Bowlen appreciated the league’s primary mission. On Monday, Sushma Swaraj, the Indian foreign minister, called to express her condolences.
Schedule a TripGrowing up in the 1980s, Johnson, the “Molly” writer, said she remembers few Native role models in the media and troubling racist portrayals of Native Americans in television and film. Even now, stories in mainstream pop culture about Native American communities tend to rely on tropes about “savage” or “noble” warriors and focus on the anguish of poverty and alcoholism, instead of showing Native Americans in everyday roles, according to a report released last year by the First Nations Development Institute, a nonprofit focused on improving the economic conditions of Native Americans. “I think people have an idea that science, arts and academia don’t mix,” Dr. Chalfie said in his office. “That’s completely untrue.” In the past, he’s had a professional ballet dancer and a violinist as students.

Schedule a TripIn the days leading up to the coronation, which is costing more than million, transmissions by international news networks have been disrupted in Thailand and articles about the royal family blocked online. A few domestic spending programs would see increases, if Mr. Trump’s budget were to become law. Those include efforts to reduce opioid addiction, as well as a 10 percent increase in health care spending for veterans. Mr. Trump will also propose a new voucher program for education, 0 billion in infrastructure spending and efforts to reduce the cost of prescription drugs.
Think about the time when, during his eulogy for the pastor Clementa Pinckney, slain in his Charleston, S.C., church in 2015, Mr. Obama began to softly sing “Amazing Grace.” Can you imagine a greater contrast or a sterner rebuke to the broad grin and upturned thumb of our current president after the Walmart shooting this past summer in El Paso? With that, Auriemma stood up from his chair and headed to the locker room. He was off to celebrate another victory with another group of players, another trip to a familiar place — his 20th Final Four — as if it were the very first time.
