Moscow has run a yearslong operation attempting to essentially frame Ukraine for its own 2016 election interference, according to United States intelligence agencies. Ann Marie Dwyer and Thomas Joseph Dunn were married March 30 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington. The Rev. Kevin Gillespie performed the ceremony.
"Is the world more peaceful since the revolution?" Herzgog asks, referring to the fall of the Empire. In her statement, Ms. Wilson-Raybould, a lawyer who was once a regional chief of First Nations on Canada’s west coast and an advocate for Indigenous rights, commented on how the case has been portrayed in the media.
Schedule a TripThe Purdue deal, the most comprehensive of any settlement so far in thousands of opioid-related cases nationwide, holds great symbolic as well as practical value. As the developer of the opioid OxyContin and a creator of aggressive models of drug marketing, Purdue Pharma has long been blamed for setting off what became the opioid epidemic. In their small Honduran town, Ms. Batiz’s family was part of the Garifuna community, descendants of enslaved Africans and indigenous Central Americans. The Garifuna tend to be extremely poor, and they have the highest rate of H.I.V. transmissions in Honduras.
How do you cope when your child is the preschool biter? Carla Bruce-Eddings wrote a wonderful essay about it. (Though it probably helped her kid stop biting, Yo Gabba Gabba’s “Don’t Bite Your Friends” video haunted her dreams.) Parents who do not vaccinate their children have expressed worries about side effects, concerns over cost, moral or religious objections, and fears that vaccines lead to autism — an idea that has been widely debunked.
Schedule a TripI say this again: There will be no victory for the terrorists. Turkey will continue to do what it must to ensure its own safety and the well-being of the international community. “Sean Hannity and our other opinion people aren’t going to be onstage with the candidates,” Mr. Wallace added, of a potential Fox News debate.
Tom Brady and the rest of the Patriots seem to believe that the football world has lost faith in them. It’s true that many people picked the Chargers to win last week — though the Patriots were officially 4-point favorites in the game — but even the most ardent believers in Los Angeles’s chances seemed aware that the combination of Brady, Bill Belichick and Foxborough could easily lead to a win for New England. Demand for American currency hones a double-edged sword. By driving up the exchange value of the dollar, it allows Americans to buy foreign goods and services more cheaply. But that makes American exports more expensive for foreign buyers.
Schedule a TripIt's no secret Cadillac has been slow to adapt to a rapidly growing demand for crossovers and SUVs. The brand has instead bolstered its sedan lineup over the past few years, and that hasn't exactly proven successful. Currently, Cadillac only offers two utility vehicles: the XT5 crossover and full-size Escalade SUV. The new, compact XT4 doesn't arrive until late 2018. Every jurisdiction in the country has its own set of standards and policies regarding electrical work. The New York City Department of Buildings is an exemplar, said Mr. Diamond. You can go to the department’s website to find out if an electrician has a current license, is properly insured, and has any disciplinary reports on file.
“We are just a bunch of human beings muddling along in a world that’s very hard to understand,” said mathematician Karen Uhlenbeck, the recent winner of the Abel Prize. She was speaking with Freeman Dyson, the mathematical physicist, and Natalie Wolchover, a writer for Quanta. In a separate statement, Bayer said, “We remain committed to the more than 45 million patients who have been prescribed Xarelto worldwide.”
Schedule a TripThe condo has also changed its name, from 685 First Avenue, which is now used solely by the 408-unit rental portion. Spotify filed a complaint with European regulators this week, accusing Apple of using its App Store to undercut companies that compete with its own services, like Apple Music.
Flip the X390 Yoga's display to move between laptop and tablet modes. “The more we tell women not to travel alone and the more we send the message that the world is very dangerous, in a way, we are also supporting that belief,” Ms. Gavios said. “Rather than horrifying people, I want people to go into it with a little more bravery and a little more knowledge.”

Lawmakers had previously agreed to keep poison pills out of the 12 spending bills, but now they cannot agree on precisely which proposals must be shelved. The home’s backyard was a patchwork of dirt and holes on Wednesday as the police continued to investigate for a second day. Some holes appeared to be several feet deep. The house was cordoned off with police tape and bore a “No Trespassing” sign. It is blocks from where Detective Brian Simonsen was killed last month.
Schedule a TripThe protests may cause high-profile athletes and their fans around the world to pay attention to the Hong Kong protests for the first time, and their sympathies might lie with the protesters instead of Beijing, one of the two people said. Both of them insisted on anonymity because of the sensitivity of the trade and nationalism issues involved. So the chances for true change in Algeria’s case are hardly doomed. And neighboring Tunisia, the only clear success of the 2011 Arab Spring protests, showed that democracy can take hold even amid a downturn.
At 12 years old, Holly Powell quit the swim team when her breasts outgrew her swimsuit. In college, she started jogging. “There were no sports bras for me back then,” Ms. Powell said, now 50 and still a regular exerciser. “I had broken blood vessels all across the top of my bust.” There was one exception to the pattern; in a curious twist, the study found that women who were applying for individual research grants received nearly ,000 more than male applicants. Dr. Woodruff noted that such grants made up only 11 percent of N.I.H. grant money, but said more research was needed into funding disparities.
Schedule a TripNo good teacher, whatever her politics, wants a student to feel this way — and, worse, to start seeking political information from random amateurs on the internet. Yet Ms. Mashek is hopeful. “We’re at an inflection point. There are people prioritizing this,” she told me. “I think, by and large, administrators and professors know that this stuff is important and maybe hadn’t felt as ready to step into this discourse as they are now.” This is true at my university, where I serve on an advisory board tasked with starting an academic initiative to improve how we teach students to engage with ideas different from their own. “Creo que el costo de vida aquí es muy razonable en comparación con muchos otros lugares”, opinó Ken, de 73 años, técnico electricista retirado que trabajaba para una compañía eléctrica.
“My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and they are spent without hope,” one T-shirt read. The potential similarities between the two crashes were central to regulators’ decision to ground the whole 737 Max line, a family of planes that has been in service for nearly two years. Boeing is now in damage control mode, as carriers cancel flights and try to limit disruptions. Boeing declined to comment for this article.
Schedule a TripThe Urus SUV may brand its in-car tech as Lamborghini Infotainment System (LIS), but anyone who's been in the new Audi A8 will recognize the twin-screen setup. As in the A8 (and A6 and A7), a 10.1-inch primary touchscreen works with an 8.6-inch lower one that's used for things like climate controls and writing navigation addresses. It features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support as standard. Its graphics have, of course, been restyled to suit a Lamborghini rather than an Audi. Mr. Pellicano very likely could have faced less time in prison if he had cooperated with the authorities, but he never talked. In his interview last year with The Hollywood Reporter, he discussed “omerta,” the Mafia code of silence, and the value of keeping secrets. Among them, he said, were Michael Jackson’s. Mr. Pellicano worked for Mr. Jackson in the 1990s but said he quit when he learned what The Hollywood Reporter described as “truths even darker than those alleged in Jackson’s molestation scandal.” The Jackson family and estate have denied all allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
Six months later, in March 2014, she switched jobs, and he promptly asked her out. To an untrained eye, this would have seemed like a bizarre detour.
Schedule a TripWednesday on Pop In an effort to prevent even more M.P.s from defecting and to heal some of the divisions, Tom Watson, deputy Labour leader and a vocal critic of Mr. Corbyn, recently announced the creation of a moderate, social democratic group, the Future Britain Group, inside Labour.
While Finne’s intervention at the hospital is disturbing, it provides this weirdo with an ironclad alibi for the killings being investigated by Harry Hole, the rogue police detective in Nesbo’s bleak noir series. Harry is at a low point in his unstable life. He’s drinking much of the time — to the point of sucking up the last drop of whiskey from a filthy floor — and when his wife leaves him, this time for good, he completely falls apart. But this is what readers expect of Harry, whose weaknesses somehow contribute to his manly appeal. And whenever he does fall flat, there always seems to be a good woman around to pick him up. I told him that his name was beautiful, that his parents gave it to him out of love. I told him about the name I gave my son, Ellison, whom I named after the novelist Ralph Waldo Ellison, who was named after Ralph Waldo Emerson. I claimed for my son an American genealogy that was also an African-American genealogy that, through me and my son, would also be a Vietnamese-American genealogy. Ellison Nguyen, a name that compressed all of our painful, aspirational history as a country.
Schedule a TripHow do New York Times journalists use technology in their jobs and in their personal lives? Li Yuan, a technology columnist in Hong Kong, discussed the tech she’s using. Also implicated were top college athletic coaches, who were accused of accepting millions of dollars to help admit undeserving students to a wide variety of colleges, from the University of Texas at Austin to Wake Forest and Georgetown, by suggesting they were top athletes.
When more bad guys show up, the pair get their shoot on and the Mando-IG kill-fest begins. This is a wildly cool sequence, with IG-11 effortlessly taking down loads of mooks. When Hannah Ryles was a junior at a Tokyo high school in 2008, she was determined to attend David Lee’s junior prom.
Schedule a TripThe Landsat 8 satellite caught this image of the Camp Fire on Nov. 8. Let’s be clear: Not having a trade war is better than the alternative. But the path the Trump administration has taken to its trade deals has made us less trusted, less respected and weaker than we were before. So much winning!
The ByteDance spokesman said the company had recently changed the policy restricting political videos and called the previous rules a blunt approach intended to keep the app fun. LONDON — Feng Ji said she was feeling proud. One of China’s new generation of homegrown luxury jewelers, she was in London for a meeting to discuss a confidential collaboration with a global brand whose name you would recognize. (But she won’t disclose it.)
Schedule a Trip(Hat tip to ZDNet!) “The problem with the internet is that you leave traces,” Mr. Froissart told Europe1 radio on Thursday. “All it takes is for a message to resurface online and be misinterpreted or reinterpreted, and off it goes again.”
It is very hard to avoid seeing things like this online because that is where they always are. I have seen almost every possible form of racism or prejudice online over the years. People hide behind a screen and love the idea of always being anonymous and being able to hide and say anything they want. This along with how easily things can spread and how fast people can jump on others ideas makes it a very bad mix. But getting interpreters to court is hardly a given: With so few of them in such high demand, they have to be arranged weeks or even months in advance. Judges are often forced to rely on interpreters by phone, making it difficult to hear and impossible to understand body language. And interpreter shortages are plaguing courts across the country, including New York and Chicago.
