What: Amazon's smorgasbord of deals -- pretty much "Black Friday in July." More than a million products will be discounted, but not all at the same time, and not all for the duration of the event.

Nine years later, The Times’s Herbert Mitgang contemplated the reasons for pizza’s popularity, writing, “The guess is that a number of Americans of Italian origin, aided by advertising and refrigeration, have made pizza as delectable as such other postwar imports as Lollobrigida” — referring to Gina, the saucy Roman film star. The Neapolitan-style pie became a chic dinner-party staple that could also be supplemented with a salad for a filling, family meal. But one innovation would change how New Yorkers enjoyed pizza forever. The accusations — and accompanying pushback by Mr. Burr to his Republican colleagues — amounted to an unusually public spat for a panel that has toiled for nearly two years on a bipartisan investigation into Russia’s 2016 election interference efforts that has been largely free of partisan politics.

For all of his advantages with blue-collar voters in the Democratic primary, Mr. Biden so far does not appear to significantly cut into Mr. Trump’s base of white working-class voters. And he is not the only Democratic candidate perceived as electable. Early polls, which are parsed by some committed voters but are not predictive at this stage, show several Democrats beating Mr. Trump in head-to-head matchups. • “Norah O’Donnell, Ms. King’s other co-anchor, is the likely contender to take over ‘CBS Evening News,’ replacing Jeff Glor, who has been in the job for 18 months.”

The most recent of these is the 2018 J.D. Power APEAL (or Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout, if you're nasty) study which measures owner satisfaction. Li'l ol' Genesis has managed to knock Porsche, the reigning champ for the last 13 years off, of its throne. That left the Cardinals with a decision for the No. 1 pick, and they used it on Murray, who beat teams with his arm and legs in college.
In Washington, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was convening a meeting with the entire House Democratic caucus amid rising momentum for impeachment, after revelations that Mr. Trump pressed Ukraine’s president for dirt on his leading Democratic rival, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., while blocking American aid to Kiev. Have these words ever been uttered in your home? If yes, who said them, you or your parents?

Our director of fashion coverage, Vanessa Friedman, called Mr. Lagerfeld the most prolific designer of the 20th and 21st centuries. Creative director at Chanel since 1983 and Fendi since 1965, he also had his own line. He moved heritage brands into the present “with a healthy dose of disrespect and a dollop of pop culture.” On the floor lay the other woman, Farina C., 30, with a bolt through her neck and two crossbows beside her. A third weapon was found in a bag in the room, the police said.

She is a daughter of Nancy J. Mrazek and Judge Drain of Scarsdale, N.Y. The bride’s mother is a docent at the Neuberger Museum of Art at Purchase College. The December attack targeting a tourist bus took place on another road about three miles from the pyramids.

At their first summit meeting just two years ago, Mr. Xi told Mr. Trump that China and the United States had “a thousand reasons” to work well together. But the slow pace of negotiations could tarnish in Mr. Xi’s carefully drawn image at home as a master strategist.
November 15 But the passing decades have brought a reappraisal, especially by some feminists, of Ms. Day’s screen personality, and her achievements. In her book “Holding My Own in No Man’s Land” (1997), the critic Molly Haskell described Ms. Day as “challenging, in her working-woman roles, the limited destiny of women to marry, live happily ever after and never be heard from again.”

He’s seventh in line to the British throne and the first interracial baby in the monarchy in recent history. And it may be out of step with the times.

In some cases, the invitation to show in two venues has let artists take a risk on something new. Mr. Atkins, in the Arsenale, presents another gripping installation centered on his digitally rendered videos, in which waxy computer-generated bodies fret, wail, panic and disassemble. Scattered through the Giardini are surprising gouaches of human hands and feet, each of which cradles a tarantula with Mr. Atkins’s head grafted onto its body. I found them iffily drawn, but I appreciate the risk he took in showing them. Yet Starr became the Packers’ most essential player. Lombardi was a new kind of coach — comprehensive, obsessive, relentless — and he needed a new kind of quarterback, serious and studious enough to put the coach’s grand plans into motion, to make crucial decisions when the game, and maybe the season, was on the line, and to endure Lombardi’s sometimes harsh criticism. Starr became a passionate student and a superlative field general, and he never stopped giving Lombardi credit for his success.

Mr. Maduro has denied there is a humanitarian crisis in Venezuela and called the American aid a “Trojan horse” aimed at overthrowing his government. Opposition leaders have described the delivery of the aid as part of a plan to oust Mr. Maduro.

What we’ve seen over the past two months is a professional at work. Someone who understands his mission and acts accordingly. Unless he voluntarily resigns, Barr will be attorney general for at least the next 20 months, or until Trump dumps him, which seems unlikely given his success at protecting the president. For now, there doesn’t appear to be much his opponents can do, but there is something they can learn.
To some extent, Mr. Biden’s opposition to busing reflected the majority of the country at the time. Polling in the 1970s found only single-digit support for the practice. What’s been selling well so far? Any predictions for the top sellers of the summer?

He’s puzzled by the reappearance at an East German lake of the elegant Wolfgang, this time as the director of Walter’s university. Saul wonders, fearfully, if Wolfgang is the same driver who killed his mother in a car crash when Saul was 12. He keeps having visions of Jennifer with white hair. Don’t worry about an exit visa, he tells Luna. “By November 1989” — that is, in 14 months — “the borders will be open and within a year your two Germanys will be one.” And that could be a deal breaker.
“At the dealer level right now, fentanyl is like a magic dust — it’s a moneymaker,” said Jon DeLena, the associate special agent in charge of the D.E.A.’s New England field division. An article on May 4 about restrictions in Florida that will require felons to fully pay back fines in order to regain their voting rights referred incorrectly to the number of states that have laws prohibiting anyone with a felony record from voting. In addition to Iowa and Kentucky, Virginia has a similar law, but it permits the governor to restore voting rights in individual cases.

She ran away only to return, filed charges only to recant — behavior that might look weak or mystifying, but Snyder reveals how carefully she was trying to assess the risks to her and her children. She was trying to placate Rocky until she felt safe enough to make a move. She was relying on the tools that had kept her alive.
Yet it is unclear how broadly each side chooses to define “poison pill,” which could complicate any negotiation. PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Pakistani troops clashed with protesters on Sunday near the border with Afghanistan, leaving at least three people dead and scores wounded, officials said.

One thing is clear: If a new arms race begins, it will be expensive. While the makeover of America’s aging nuclear arsenal and laboratories began during the Obama administration, the ambitions to remake the United States’ nuclear capabilities have accelerated under Mr. Trump. Mr. Smollett, 36, had been accused of paying two acquaintances to stage an attack against himself in which they shouted racist and homophobic slurs and placed a noose around his neck. In the days after his indictment on Feb. 28, Chicago police detectives met with a prosecutor from the state’s attorney’s office to turn over materials related to the investigation, according to a detective’s report.

According to Ben-Youssef, Adalah Justice Project hasn’t hosted a single event focused on Palestine alone in the last year. Instead, it partnered with other progressive and racial-justice organizations. As Ben-Youssef told me, “Our whole theory of change can be distilled as de-exceptionalizing Israel-Palestine.” She added, “I don’t want more Palestinian rights activists. I want more human rights defenders.” In the decade that followed, the two of us talked infrequently. I would occasionally see updates on Facebook about Isabella’s children doing incredible things or a picture of her in some far-flung part of the world. In September, my heart sank when her husband announced on Facebook that she had Stage 4 lung cancer. He said she had found a trial treatment that temporarily alleviated her pain and blocked the spread of cancer cells. Typical of Isabella, she was going on adventures with each of her five children and anyone else who wanted to join with the time she had left.
