The 2018 report, released Tuesday and coming in at about 8,000 words, offers a comprehensive peek at our collective proclivities. There are too many intriguing tidbits to stuff into this summary, so check out the full report for a fun, illuminating and surprisingly SFW-ish read (no pornographic images, just charts and figures). In the meantime, here are the top takeaways that raised my eyebrows. “This is a 0 billion industry,” Mr. Gal said. “You think three hours of an orchestrated show before Congress will lead to different behavior? I don’t think so.”
‘THE BACCHAE’ at Marcus Garvey Park (previews start on July 6; opens on July 11). The god of wine, theater and ecstasy arrives uptown. This summer, the Classical Theater of Harlem offers a new version of Euripides’ tragedy about Dionysus, a divinity who returns to his hometown to recruit the populace to his cult. Carl Cofield directs Bryan Doerries’s version. The performances are free. cthnyc.org CNBC breaks down how Mr. Sanders would affect the business world should he become president:
40: Years ago that Joan Benoit Samuelson won the women’s race in the Boston Marathon. Now 61, she ran the marathon in three hours, four minutes on Monday, wearing a Bowdoin tank as she had in 1979, with bib number 1979. She won her age group. But you don’t have to be a deficit scold to suggest that progressives should be thinking about how to pay for their policies.

I've always loved to draw, and I've always been fascinated by the possibilities of digital art. I remember creating art in Microsoft Paint by tortuously filling in individual pixels. I remember when I first scanned a drawing and was able to digitally colour and manipulate what I had hand-drawn. I remember the joy of discovering layers in Photoshop. Mind-blowing moments all -- and as hard as I tried to maintain my journalistic composure under that Rift headset, this took me back to those moments of pure creative joy. But on Monday they were no match for the Bucks, especially with Nets guard Shabazz Napier going 0 for 10 behind the arc and DeMarre Carroll missing his first eight over all before finishing 2 for 11.
In some instances, digital journalists have lost their jobs soon after joining unions. In 2017, days after reporters at the New York City news sites DNAInfo and Gothamist celebrated their affiliation with the Writers Guild of America East, the billionaire owner Joe Ricketts decided to shut the sites down. The disasters have shocked and saddened Brazilians and have highlighted the country’s shoddy infrastructure and poor emergency response.
The website’s opening page begins with a caps-lock proclamation that sounds like an applause line from one of the president’s raucous rallies: “SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH.” Mr. Fairfax entered the legislative building around 11:30 a.m. this morning, made his way to the Senate chambers through a scrum of TV cameras, repeated that he had “called for an independent investigation,” adding: “I am still very confident in the truth.” And went to work, above.
Ostensibly inspired by the opulence and gilded extravagance of circus wagons produced from 1824 to 1940 by the Bode Wagon Company in Cincinnati, the show was, in fact, a safe and predictable riff on the whimsy Ms. Bode has mined before from folk art, found objects and vintage textiles (no designer has ever gotten more mileage out of an old tablecloth.) Despite all the practice being forced on us, taking a good photo is still hard, as is picking a favorite between your left and right side. Below, experts offer guidance.
