Could it be the supervillain of the Italian silent feature “Filibus,” a prankish, technology-savvy jewel thief who repeatedly confounds a famous detective and, also a master of disguise, is in fact a woman?
Patrick Healy: He earns an hour — enough to buy a car, help his 86-year-old aunt with rent, buy groceries and presents for his eight grandchildren. He pays for a health care policy from Kaiser.

James F. Jeffrey, the State Department’s special envoy for Syria, said Syrian Kurdish fighters were consulted throughout the negotiations, including on Thursday afternoon, and suggested that the loss of their territory was better than continued violence and bloodshed as Turkish troops advanced.
I'd love to take a pause here to mourn the death of Gavin S. Charming -- the head of the Golden Company and the guy I definitely thought was good looking enough to get a little backstory before he died. But with the flick of Grey Worm's spear, the poor man's Jaime Lannister is dispatched with very little to-do. In the moment he was running away, you could see his entire Hollywood career flash before his eyes. You can see that recognition in how businesses are behaving. The scale of the tariffs actually being collected thus far remains moderate relative to the scale of the United States economy. But there is plenty of evidence that this sense of trade chaos is hanging over business decision-making, especially in the export-focused manufacturing sector.

The movie’s tagline is “based on a true friendship.” But the transactional nature of it makes the friendship seem less true than sponsored. So what does the money do, exactly? The white characters — the biological ones and somebody supposedly not black enough, like fictional Don — are lonely people in these pay-a-pal movies. The money is ostensibly for legitimate assistance, but it also seems to paper over all that’s potentially fraught about race. The relationship is entirely conscripted as service and bound by capitalism and the fantastically presumptive leap is, The money doesn’t matter because I like working for you. And if you’re the racist in the relationship: I can’t be horrible because we’re friends now. That’s why the hug Sandra Bullock gives Yomi Perry, the actor playing her maid, Maria, at the end of “Crash,” remains the single most disturbing gesture of its kind. It’s not friendship. Friendship is mutual. That hug is cannibalism. On Oct. 9, 2016, he appeared as candidate Trump’s lone campaign surrogate on the Sunday morning political programs to enthusiastically defend Mr. Trump’s infantile 2005 Access Hollywood interview as “locker room talk.” He said, “Men at times talk like that.” I said to myself, “No, Rudy, we don’t.”

The New York Times has chosen not to identify the interpreter by name in this article. Efforts to reach him failed. A study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reports more menu items with larger portion sizes, more calories and more sodium than the prior studies in 1986 and 1991. They examined 1,787 menu items in 10 restaurants: Arby’s, Burger King, Carl’s Jr, Dairy Queen, Hardee’s, Jack in the Box, KFC, Long John Silver’s, McDonald’s and Wendy‘s. Most notable is that for desserts, the portion sizes increased 71 percent and the calories increased by 79 percent. Do we see evidence that supports that the changes in fast food offerings are contributing to the obesity rate?
Schedule a TripTeachers’ expectations of students — and the biases behind them — also influence children’s performance. For example, white teachers are less likely than black teachers to refer black students to gifted programs, or to have high expectations for their potential. Yet as with Asian-American students, research shows that when teachers have high expectations for black students, they rise to meet them. The cases presented an apparent contradiction. Ms. Warren is a progressive who frequently criticizes the behavior of corporations, but had advised big companies like LTV Steel and Dow Chemical. She is a proponent of the Green New Deal, but had represented utilities that generated power using fossil fuels, and had gone to bat for a company that did not want to pay for cleaning up a Superfund site it left behind. Was Ms. Warren a hypocrite, as some of her opponents had suggested, or was something else in play?

Lévy Gorvy is exhibiting at FIAC for the first time, choosing it over the Frieze Masters in London. The gallery’s Paris debut was proving a commercial success, particularly at the Wednesday preview, when it found a buyer for a 19-foot plexiglass mural that the French Pop artist Martial Raysse painted in 1966 for the Swiss home of Princess Catherine Aga Khan. It sold to a private European foundation for an undisclosed seven-figure sum.

We’ve had some fun “Pandas” from the kiddos, but Mr. Taub brings an unmistakably masterful touch to this interesting genre. Today’s puzzle has a lot of flair, a nice range of pun types and word “schtick,” to quote this constructor (from an interview I read very recently). Solvers should still find it approachable.

Why doesn’t Mr. Mueller speak candidly? Arguably no one knows more about what actually happened. His button-down, by-the-rule-book adherence to institutionalism, so vaunted by many, may actually be fomenting a pandemic erosion of institutional trust. “He’s unbelievable,” said third baseman Alex Bregman, who homered off Blake Snell for the Astros’ first run. “Seriously, he’s got the best stuff in baseball.

Images posted online showed panicked parents pressed up against the school gates, pleading with officials for more information. In the video circulating on WeChat, an unidentified woman asked parents not to disseminate any information shared by school officials. “I told them I didn’t want to do cloak-and-dagger stuff,” she said.
Schedule a TripSave the repetitive, tedious work for your down days. Some jobs may require both creative and mechanical or tedious work that you can split up and work on when you’re best able to do it. If your workweek includes brainstorming pitches for a meeting and manually entering data into a spreadsheet, try to get the more creative part of the job done when you’re having a good mental health day, and save the tedious stuff for when you’re having a harder time. Why would he bring up children making money abroad? This isn’t just a guy who makes stupid decisions. It’s a guy who’s off his rocker. Whose great pal is Rudy Giuliani, the talking head whose TV appearances can terrify toddlers. I’m not saying Trump is the only unbalanced person in this story. Just that he’s the only one who controls our nuclear weapons.
The U.S. government said this week that it would ban flavored e-cigarettes, out of concern that they appealed to youths and nonsmokers. For the same reason, the U.S. has outlawed flavors in regular tobacco cigarettes since 2009 — except for menthol, which makes up about 30 percent of U.S. cigarette sales. “It is chaos,” said Michael Stephens, a scholar of the region at the Royal United Services Institute in London. “The region is in chaos because the hegemonic power does not seem to know what it wants to do, and so nobody else does.”

Still, the results weren’t even close. Besides his dedication to protecting the president from, um, criminal justice, Barr unnerved readers with his war against secularism. “The chief enforcer of the Constitution recently gave a speech decrying those who would interfere with Christian religious control of our government,” noted Sharon from Montana, who predicted Barr “will go down in history as the worst attorney general.”

Schedule a TripThe 40,000-square-mile Bristol Bay watershed that would be affected by the Pebble Mine is home to a fishery that, in recent years, has supported some 14,000 jobs and generated some .5 billion annually in sales value. All that stands between this thriving fishery and its despoiling is a go-ahead from the gung-ho Trump administration and the pro-development state government. Look at Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who was questioned last Wednesday at a House hearing by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A.O.C. was trying to grasp why Zuckerberg thinks it’s O.K. for politicians to run political ads that contain obvious lies, as the Trump campaign has already done in a Facebook ad about Biden viewed by some five million Facebook users.
T-Mobile said last year that New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Las Vegas would be among the first to get its 5G network. T-Mobile has mmWave spectrum in eight to 10 cities around the country, though it's not clear where exactly those holdings are. In an unscheduled appearance in the White House driveway, Vice President Mike Pence told reporters that Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Erdogan for an immediate cease-fire — part of the executive order that Mr. Pompeo announced — adding that the president had not given a “green light” for Turkish forces to invade Syria.

This was a rational process, and it took a lot of meetings.” In effect, he made a dare to the whole internet power structure, especially to Facebook, which is the platform that matters most when it comes to politics because of the effectiveness of its ad targeting and its size.

Brace yourselves. Those are indeed valid criticisms, but an overlooked problem is that a federal government memorandum required the Justice Department to refer this complaint to the Federal Election Commission. And by all publicly available information, the department failed to do so.
