“He’s always going to be able to hit,” Manager Mickey Callaway said before batting practice Tuesday. “These Hall of Fame-type hitters, they don’t lose that ability to hit.” • Without giving too much away about the twists at the end of Atom Egoyan’s great 1994 drama “Exotica,” that’s the work that this episode of “True Detective” most strongly recalls, about characters who playact their way around family tragedy to ease the pain of it.
More films to watch: Cairo Time (Cairo), The Last Storytellers: Tales from the Heart of Morocco, and The Sheltering Sky (Algeria and Niger). Mullah Baradar and Mr. Khalilzad met personally to troubleshoot when their negotiating teams hit a wall. The two men met close to a dozen times during the negotiations.

(If there’s a lesson to take from the top two movies, it’s that audiences gravitate toward the not-quite-human.)

Protesters in the capital wanted the country to move closer to the European Union. But many Ukrainians elsewhere worried that the new central authorities would neglect the specific needs and identities of their regions; some seemed to think that Russia would be a better caretaker. Asked what the point was then, he said, “I think people have the right to speak their mind. You know, speaking your mind. I’ve heard that for a period of time. But other people have said it, too. I mean, many people have said it.”
Schedule a TripWithings' newest fitness watch, the Move, was announced at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. It has the ability to take electrocardiograms, a chart of your heartbeat often abbreviated to EKG or ECG. It's also a regular-looking analog watch -- and at 0, it's about a third the cost of an Apple Watch S4. (Converted, that's about £100 or AU.) Last year, he founded a human rights group, UyghurAid, that is compiling recordings from around the world with the help of 30 volunteers. Activists are uploading those and other accounts to a single site, the Xinjiang Victims Database, which compiles names and biographical details of people believed to be held in the camps.
"The big breakthroughs we're going to see are not in hardware alone," Osterloh said. "They come at the intersection of artificial intelligence, software and hardware." The flight marked another step forward in a new kind of space race — one that aims to allow private citizens (who can afford the ticket) an opportunity to exit our atmosphere.
Schedule a TripI do believe that we mischaracterize what it means to experience television now. Where, for a viewer, should the shame of a binge begin? Perhaps at the point at which we permit the networks and streaming services and media who cover them to shame us, to reclassify viewership as consumption. I think eight years is too long, not to be devoted to a television show but for the companies who make our TV to milk that devotion, the way, for decades, film studios and the owners of certain professional sports teams have. • Even Ms. Harris’s relationship with Oakland, the city where she began her presidential campaign, is complicated.

The eighth-generation Chevy Corvette will be revealed on July 18. Morey, which makes electronic components for cars, medical devices and other uses, has been hit by Mr. Trump’s tariffs, which raised prices on imported parts from China. At first, the impact was small, but it has grown as suppliers draw down inventories and are forced to import more.
Schedule a TripIt’s one thing for tourists on “safari” at a luxury lodge to commune with the bruins. It’s quite another for locals to encounter them outside the park. Valley residents see them in their yards, on village streets and shortcutting between houses. Sightings create “bear jams.” Teachers are advised to look outside before letting children out to play. Piles of fresh bear scat litter roads and trails. “Music is one of the most important parts of Uighur culture,” Mr. Heyit told The Times in an interview in Kashgar in 1999. “People here can wear American T-shirts, but their hearts stay the same. The music, because it’s such a symbol of the heart, changes slowly.”
“We all agree that diversity is important, but it’s more so like the means by which we actually get to the diversity,” he said. But Democratic leaders are losing patience with a continuing campaign by Republicans to smear Democrats as anti-Semitic when some of their own leaders — including President Trump — have trafficked their own anti-Semitic tropes and failed to renounce anti-Semitic followers.

Regulating big tech is quickly becoming a central theme of the 2020 presidential race.

Both Mr. Blanc and Ms. Melice-Adderley have American visas that will expire in December, but they hope that the United States will accommodate them on a more permanent basis. The War and Women’s Human Rights Museum shares the history of the Korean comfort women, the women and girls forced into sexual slavery by Japanese forces during World War II. Depending on where you’re standing, a mandatory audio guide may play back narrated anecdotes from survivors, or provide history lessons on the women’s fate or the societal pressures that kept them from speaking out. The museum also makes efforts to address crimes against women internationally, including those against Vietnamese comfort women by the Korean military during the Vietnam War.

Neither player can efficiently utilize the 3-pointer, which has cemented itself as the most treasured tool in the modern offensive game. Williamson has made less than 30 percent of the 47 3-pointers he has attempted. Morant is at 32.7 percent, below the Division I average of 34.3 percent.
And so there has been a surge in writer seminars, workshops and salons, to which mostly nonprofessional (or not-yet professional) writers sign up for advice on ideas, structure, tone and pitching from published authors, writers and editors who are looking to augment the income that goes along with the full-time career everyone on the internet wants — until they find out what it pays. “The war is not an American war,” he said.

Today, the Hong Kongers use those, too. Of the many delights working at a magazine offers, one is the opportunity to collaborate with people who think differently than you do. The best magazines I’ve worked at are the archetypal American high school remade: You have the newspaper and speech and debate team kids (now the text editors); the drama-club kids (now the fashion department); the skateboarders (now the art directors); and the film society kids (now the photo editors). The result, when it works, is a mostly joyful, if sometimes contentious, collective, a group of people all trying to create something using their particular skills and kinds of intelligence. Magazine staffs adhere to a hierarchy, but too much systemization frustrates the fundamentally communal nature of the organization — it is “e pluribus unum” at its finest, creative people attempting to solve a riddle together.
McConnell was central to the Trump administration’s efforts to fill the judiciary with conservative judges. The most obvious reason that girls do better at school than boys, but less well at the office, is institutional sexism. Isn’t that why “underqualified and underprepared men don’t think twice about leaning in,” and “women feel confident only when they are perfect”?
Schedule a TripMr. Schumer said he would then counter with a more detailed policy solution, but that may prove just as risky.

If peak flight and travel season for, let’s say, Iceland is May to September, look out for Wow Air flights for January. Reykjavik, or any new location, is fun, no matter the time of year.

Cheryl Guerin, an executive vice president of Mastercard, said the company would use its marketing campaign to promote special offers in the city, such as dinners cooked by celebrated chefs like Marcus Samuelsson in iconic spots like Carnegie Hall or the baseball diamond in Yankee Stadium. The company’s two billion cardholders also will get early access to annual events in the city, including Restaurant Week and Broadway Week, she said. Community efforts to redevelop the river on the American side have faced delays over 15 years. About two dozens stakeholders at the local, state, and federal level have some oversight responsibility for the New River. The bureaucratic glut is perhaps partly to blame for the delays.

The nation’s civilian leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize, has declined to speak up for besieged groups or to publicly hold the military to account. The Padres will soon let loose a flood of prospects, so it is hard to predict how close they really are to contending. But starter Chris Paddack and shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. offered tantalizing spring training glimpses of the kind of young, cheap talent that enabled the Padres to afford a 10-year, 0 million contract for Machado.
