Mr. Trump had tweeted before arriving in Osaka: “I look forward to speaking with Prime Minister Modi about the fact that India, for years having put very high Tariffs against the United States, just recently increased the Tariffs even further. This is unacceptable and the Tariffs must be withdrawn!” By many measures, Northern Ireland has made remarkable progress since the formal end in 1998 of three decades of conflict between nationalists, drawn mainly from Catholic backgrounds, who want to unite Northern Ireland with the Republic of Ireland; unionists, drawn mainly from Protestant backgrounds, who want to remain part of Britain; and the British state itself.
Adam Shapiro, the company’s chief executive, said on Monday he was disappointed by the governor’s decision but remained “undeterred.” We have some objective sense of how many people watch “American Idol” and “The Walking Dead” and all the non-streaming shows measured by Nielsen. With Netflix, we have only its very vague word.
Our director of fashion coverage, Vanessa Friedman, called him the most prolific designer of the 20th and 21st centuries. He served as creative director at Chanel since 1983 and Fendi since 1965, and had his own line. “Blessings to those in between,” a Chinese woman says near the end of Gabrielle Brady’s ethereal, intensely moving documentary, “Island of the Hungry Ghosts.” She’s speaking to her ancestors, brought to the Australian territory of Christmas Island over 100 years ago to work the mines and whose spirits are believed to haunt this wild, strangely forbidding place.
One of my favorite projects was the General Staff Building of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, which we finished last year. We introduced a lot of projected signs because the building is a monument and you can’t screw things into the wall. We can also be a bit more playful in a museum. For instance, we made a dynamic bookshop logo with a projected bookshelf, and every minute one of the books falls off the shelf. “It felt very powerful to be able to speak, because I’ve been silent for so long.” Most states have loopholes that make it more difficult to prosecute marital rape. This woman is fighting to change that. [Read the story]
But with one proposed exit plan summarily rejected and the prospect of a delayed divorce, the temptation to jump ship to calmer, more business-friendly waters is growing. L.G.: Personal choice, absolutely. The best bumper sticker I’ve ever seen read: “Opposed to abortion? Don’t have one.” But if you mean that we should be able to exercise personal choice not to obey laws of general applicability — anti-discrimination laws, for example — you lose me there, so I’m assuming that’s not what you mean.
Albert Rivera, the leader of the Ciudadanos party, also accused Mr. Sánchez of joining forces with “those who want to liquidate Spain.” “Our team, we will be physical,” Coach Mel Tucker said at his introductory news conference. “My dad always told me the name of the game is hit, hit, H-I-T. There is always a place on the field for someone who will hit.”
Becoming director of the project, Ms. Lapidus often said, had always been her goal. As with most deployments, keeping vehicles in working order has been an issue. Out of the brigade’s current motor pool, two vehicles were repaired and six were being assessed for maintenance issues. Soldiers have had to scavenge items from nearby bases, which the report makes clear was “not a long-term solution.” Mechanics “have been able to conduct clever maintenance with what is on hand,” the documents say. On the border, trucks and Humvees are used to shuttle around troops and wire. Because of the wall’s height, the trucks are often used as welding platforms.
In a recent survey of 9,000 Danish respondents, more than 50 percent said they were willing to make “significant reductions” in consumption and wealth to mitigate the climate problem, while four out of five predicted that future generations would suffer from environmental change. It’s not possible to rerun the Upshot’s analysis from five years ago, largely because the research group it worked with is currently updating its Canada data. But I found another indicator suggesting that Canada’s middle class is still better off than its American counterpart.
