Mrs. Ransohoff Brisson, 29, is an occupational therapist at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. She graduated from the University of Michigan and received a master’s degree in occupational therapy from Columbia. Other networks have similar situations: The retired baseball players Frank Thomas and David Ortiz, who both work for Fox, also have roles with their old teams. But Van Wagenen’s insistence that Mendoza would have input on important baseball decisions seems to set her apart from other broadcasters’ or ex-players’ roles as “special advisers,” a role that tends to be more ceremonial than substantive. Ross and Rodriguez are not listed as part of the front office on their respective teams’ websites, and Thomas is an adviser for business operations. When Ortiz’s role was announced, he focused on his duties of recruiting free agents and making community appearances.
And then the spotlight will settle like a laser beam on Mickelson, who played his first major as a pro at the 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. He noted that this year marked the 100th anniversary of his maternal grandfather’s debut as a pre-teen caddie at Pebble Beach, where he made 25 cents a round. TOKYO — A Japanese ferry company apologized on Sunday after one of its ships collided with an object believed to be a whale in the Sea of Japan, injuring 80 people.
Schedule a TripEvery serious writer, I’ve heard it said, has one book whose title seems to sum up his or her oeuvre. For Wendell Berry, that book would almost certainly be “Another Turn of the Crank,” from 1995. “What is newer and perhaps unprecedented is China’s growing influence in European countries, such as Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, and Serbia, to name just a few,” said Philippe Le Corre of the Harvard Kennedy School.
Her appeal came at the close of almost six uninterrupted hours of impassioned pleas in the House of Commons from lawmakers — some angry, others pained — that illustrated the wide-ranging opposition to her deal. In all, there were more than 50 hours of debate, spread across almost six weeks — one of the most exhaustive deliberations in modern parliamentary history. Google worked on the same Pentagon project as Clarifai, and after a protest from company employees, the tech giant ultimately ended its involvement. But like Clarifai, as many as 20 other companies have worked on the project without bowing to ethical concerns.
Schedule a Trip“Both of them believe that only pressure and force will force Israel to ease the restrictions of the blockade,” said Mr. Baconi, the analyst. “And Israel has done nothing but reinforce that lesson.” Despite the challenges, Mr. Khan insisted that the welfare program should proceed. “I know the economic conditions are difficult,” Mr. Khan said.
Mr. Whitaker’s retorts to lawmakers soon irked Democrats. “Mr. Attorney General, we are not joking here,” said Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, Democrat of Texas, during one exchange. “And your humor is not acceptable.” I always told Nelson: “You may be an external activist, but I’m an internal activist. I’ve got a lot of stock. So if you have an idea to improve the company, I’ll implement it. But if you have a radical, short-term idea that destroys the company in the long term, uh-uh, ain’t going to work. I’m not going to do it, and my board is not going to accept it.”
Schedule a TripQuotable: “The ongoing forest fires in Brazil are deeply worrying,” the European Commission said in a statement on Thursday. “Forests are our lungs and life support systems.” Last year archaeologists in Peru announced the discovery of a centuries-old ritual massacre, at a site they believed was the largest known case of child sacrifice ever found.
The revelation does not dissuade the smitten Arthur. In previous scenes, we’ve seen him struggling with how he’s been living a lie of sorts. A young man who can’t wholly help his callowness, he keeps around a girlfriend, with whom he’s clearly discontented, and sulkily cruises for men at night. All the while, he acts as if everything he does is exactly what he wants to be doing. “The White House has not received or been briefed on the special counsel’s report,” said Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary.
Schedule a TripAt the end of a week in which the Democratic-led House passed a resolution setting out rules for the public phase of their impeachment inquiry into President Trump, he escaped Washington for a different sort of fracas: the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Voluminous soft tweed coats in black and white, and high-waisted pleated pants with room to stride, hands in pockets. Short legging-like knickers under skinny minidresses and matching cropped jackets for a narrower silhouette. Sweater dresses knit in three-dimensional Nordic patterns, No. 5s winked at within. Zip-up ski tops with crystalline patterns composed of actual crystals. Puffer jackets in primary shades (including bright purple). Shearling double-C fanny packs and snow boots. Snowflake hair jewelry.
The Times talked to presidential campaign veterans, operatives and candidate surrogates about what the Democratic contenders will focus on in these early months. Few would offer predictions on which candidates would be successful, but they identified priorities that are critical in order to emerge as the party’s standard-bearer in 2020. Nirav Modi: The Indian jewelry designer to the stars was arrested in London in connection with a nearly billion bank fraud in India. A judge denied him bail while India’s governing Bharatiya Janata Party immediately turned the news into campaign fodder, claiming credit for the arrest.
Schedule a TripMr. Oldenburg also struggled to weigh in on efforts to return “Lipstick (Ascending) on Caterpillar Tracks,” his first large-scale monument, completed in 1969, to the center of the Yale University campus from its current peripheral spot at Yale’s Morse College. The sculpture was commissioned 50 years ago by a group of architecture students headed by Stuart Wrede, who is leading the charge today to move it back.

Rumors on WhatsApp have been linked to 12 previous deaths in India, according to the BBC. The rumors are reportedly fueled by a video shared on WhatsApp that shows a child being abducted by two men on a motorcycle. That video is actually a child safety film from Pakistan that's meant to raise awareness. An edited version circulated on WhatsApp includes text warning about "kidnappers." Local media have also reported on the rumors, giving them some legitimacy and prompting attacks on people who are unfamiliar or don't speak the regional language, according to the BBC.

Schedule a TripI'm liking the look of this higher-end configuration of the Plus V2: You get the faster Core m3 processor, 64GB of hard drive space and the 12-inch HD display that can be used in laptop or tablet mode. Read the Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 review. Pilots who flew the Max 8 said they were not adequately informed about the new automated stall-prevention system, nor were they instructed how to disable it should incorrect data prompt it to seize control of the plane and propel its nose down.
The species, known as Rafetus swinhoei, was once common in northern Vietnam’s Red River Delta but was hunted down in the 1970s and 1980s. Cu Rua’s death left just three known specimens — a couple in a zoo in Suzhou, China, and one turtle in Dong Mo Lake, outside Hanoi, whose sex has not been revealed. Older denizens of the square complain of the gentrification and commercialization that have come with its popularity. Cafes and tourist hotels have taken over, pushing out the neighborhood artisans, and their carpentry and leather workshops.
Schedule a TripOnce the couples — 34 that day — reached their seats, the patriarch of the Maronite Church, dressed in crimson robes and gripping a scepter topped with a golden cross, led Mass and declared the whole lot husbands and wives. “If we have kids, we don’t know if we’d want them growing up here,” Mr. Marthinussen confessed. “It feels like a safe bubble. And that’s amazing, but the real world isn’t like this.”
Oracle in particular has continued to wage a legal and lobbying battle to prevent or delay the award, persuading friendly members of Congress, including Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, to weigh in with the president. Utah led by as many as 20 points before halftime, going ahead by 55-35 on back-to-back baskets from Mitchell.
Schedule a TripA judge in Chicago on Friday named a special prosecutor who will investigate how local officials handled the case against Jussie Smollett, who was accused of paying two acquaintances to attack him, making it look like a racist and homophobic hate crime. The link between masculine norms and misconduct has been clearly established. A 2017 study of 18- to 30-year-old men from the United States, Britain and Mexico found that the young men who subscribe most to traditional gender identities were unhappier and more prone to bullying and sexual harassment. Nearly 60 percent of the American respondents said their parents were the primary source of these restrictive cues.
Together, they figured Angela would have to entertain Steinbrenner for about an hour before Buck arrived in Pensacola. A commonly accepted definition of a prodigy is a child whose achievements in a field equal those of a high-performing adult. Certainly Hayes-Alexander and McGarry fit the mold, particularly in exhibiting what the psychologist Ellen Winner calls “a rage to master,” having asked their parents to be home-schooled so they could spend their days scouring cookbooks and teaching themselves arcana like medieval techniques of meat preservation or the outer bounds of molecular gastronomy.
Schedule a Trip“When you go in to a job interview, have questions ready.” Inevitably, the interviewer asks: “Do you have any questions?” When you do, in fact, have questions, “you show that you’re inquisitive and curious and eager to learn,” noted Gregor Gilliom. “Having been on the interviewer side, I’m amazed by how many people simply say, ‘Not really. I’m good.’ I never hire those candidates.” SMITH Interesting because he was certainly vocal about his dislike of the Modern’s version of modernism.
They keep coming. Armed with replica automatic weapons firing blanks, gallons of stage blood and mangled Mexican accents, the cartels are streaming across our undefended border, and into our multiplexes and our video streams. After they were found, the pair skied miles to a rescue helicopter.
Schedule a Trip“Sebastian Kurz has made the far right socially acceptable,” Reinhold Mitterlehner, a former vice chancellor and another member of his party said earlier this year. Hagg opened the scoring in the first period with a wacky goal. His shot was a good six feet wide of the net, but it took a strange carom off the end boards, hit Islanders forward Casey Cizakas in the leg, and then off the back of Lehner’s glove and into the net.
I asked Mark Baldassare, president and survey director for the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California, about whether historically strong support for gun restrictions might wane if they are seen as ineffective in preventing high-profile incidents — even if, as my colleagues reported last year, California has been successful in cutting overall gun deaths by half over the last 25 years. After the plane landed in Uganda, Mr. Bacos insisted on his right, as the pilot, to visit all of the hostages. They included a pharmacist, a doctor, a welder, a teacher, a gas station owner, a lawyer, a microbiologist, an economist, a nurse, a computer engineer and at least one woman who had survived the Holocaust. All were being held in a dusty, derelict passenger terminal.
Schedule a Trip320 pp. Harper Design. .99. (Ages 6 and up) There you are, enjoying life in Renaissance Florence and redecorating your home. Because you can afford a Botticelli spalliera — a horizontal piece of art on paneling that’s all the rage — you buy it and hang it above a bench or use it as a bed headboard. “The Story of Lucretia” and “The Story of Virginia” (both tempera, circa 1500) are the centerpieces here, and their statements are artistic and, in a disturbing new way, political. “It’s as though someone has finally turned on the lights” about centuries-old misogynist messages, the Boston Globe review suggested when the show opened on Feb. 14. “Women are being raped and murdered, and society’s somehow the better for it.” Karl Stevens, a 21st-century graphic novelist, has done cartoon versions of the two works, but from the women’s point of view and with text.
