New to Apple TV Plus‘Dickinson’ Season 1Starts streaming: November 1 Mr. Manafort told Mr. Craig that the oligarch wanted his involvement to remain anonymous, according to emails cited in a settlement released last month between the firm and the Justice Department. It showed that Skadden Arps declined to reveal the oligarch’s identity under questioning from the department soon after the report was published.
The FCC began testing broadband speeds in 2011, under a Democrat-led agency, to compare the speeds consumers actually experience to those advertised by internet service providers, like Comcast, AT&T and Verizon. Previous reports specifically stated, which broadband providers delivered on their advertised promises and which did not. Consumer advocates, like Matt Wood of Free Press, said this was a useful tool to help "shame" carriers into improving their service and give people what they are paying for. Some prominent European lawmakers introduced a petition last week demanding Mr. Tajani’s resignation.
Schedule a TripThis was the history that Boeing had in mind 10 years ago when it decided to intervene with Lion Air. Carbaugh said: “Boeing spent a shitpot full of money trying to bring those folks up to Western standards. We could only do so much, but we knew we had to try. It was an extraordinary effort.” But it was not good enough. Lion Air continued to crash airplanes around runways as it had before. The Indonesian authorities lacked the political will to rein that in. It is no secret that Rusdi Kirana prioritized efficiency over regulation. Recently he made it clear that he also resented Boeing as being presumptuous and typically condescending. “They look down on my airline and my country,” he told Reuters. “They treat us as third-world.” The New York Stock Exchange took the S.E.C. to court yesterday over a so-called Transaction Fee Pilot program that sorts listed stocks into categories with varying price controls. In a WSJ op-ed, Stacey Cunningham, the exchange’s president, explains why:
A spokesman for the Environmental Protection Agency, John Konkus, did not respond to an email requesting comment. But on Wednesday, it will be broken when state lawmakers hold their first public hearing on sexual harassment since 1992. Survivors of harassment, and anyone else interested, will have the opportunity to speak directly to the people with the power to address it.
Schedule a Trip“One of things we looked at last year and a reason we failed: We just weren’t deep,” Wilpon said. “Eroticism is the key to freedom and freedom of speech,” said Risso as he grabbed a gray checked wool blazer, deconstructed with bits of lipstick red satin poking unexpectedly through the open shoulder seams. The red in his new collection — a bit of seduction set against parochial wool — represents a provocation on his part against what he sees as an ever-more chaste society. “It’s a world full of censors,” said Risso, drawing a tight box around himself with his hands. “There’s never been such an incredible time for freedom of being whatever gender or sexuality you feel.” He added: “I just want to send the message of the beauty and joy of eroticism.”
But while reporting on environmental crises across India, I have witnessed effective efforts to renew natural capital through green infrastructure. In the Alwar District of the northern state of Rajasthan I stood on a hillside looking down on a once-barren but now verdant valley that had been brought back to life by villagers who built small-scale earthen dams known as “johads.” “Five minutes before the first curtain, I peeked out from stage left and saw the audience was full,” he recalled, “and I started to quake, literally shaking. I said, ‘I can’t go out there. I have to find a way to calm down.’” He did so by telling himself the audience was not there to see him but the performers he had hired. He said he has not had a case of nerves since.

He also carried out orders from Mr. Trump to tell contractors that Mr. Trump was refusing to pay them the money owed “for their services.”
Chief Justice Roberts was in the majority in Monday’s decision, and he has voted to overrule important precedents on campaign finance and public unions. It was unclear whether landlords were typically aware of the Airbnb operations in their buildings, and Mr. Beckman refused to comment on the matter.
Schedule a TripMs. D’Urso was sure when she bought. She’s still sure. But her husband has been making noises about buying a place at the beach. Look at the failed 1972 presidential campaign of Senator Edmund S. Muskie, who displayed his emotional side (some observers said he shed tears at a news conference) defending his wife from charges by a conservative New Hampshire newspaper publisher that she was “unladylike” — a gender-bender double whammy! Wags questioned if Mr. Muskie had the strength to serve as the nation’s commander in chief. Eventually, he dropped out of the race.
The infant’s uncle, Tito Anchondo, told reporters that he brought Paul to the hospital to meet Trump, while other victims refused to do so, because he wanted to tell the president about the pain of the family. His slain brother, he said, was a Trump supporter. He told The Washington Post that he felt consoled by Trump. The Cold War showdown between the United States and the Soviet Union was played out in the 1980s with deadly results in crowded cities and dusty hamlets in Central America. From leftist guerrilla insurgencies in El Salvador and Guatemala to the Contras fighting Nicaragua’s revolutionary Sandinista government, hundreds of thousands died and countless more fled to the United States.
Schedule a TripThis documentary series about the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy comes to Netflix on Jan. 24. Lady Gaga won the first award of the telecast, best pop duo/group performance, for “Shallow,” her duet with Bradley Cooper from their movie “A Star Is Born.” Tearful, she said she wished Cooper were with her — he was in London for the Baftas, the British film awards — and addressed a theme in the film, in which Cooper plays a singer struggling with addiction.
“We want to collect some money because that’s a more powerful message than just a judgment on paper,” Mr. Obeidallah said. “We’re going to give it to organizations that fight white supremacy, run by the very people these guys hate, like Muslims, African-Americans, Jewish Americans and the L.G.B.T.Q. community.” Similarly, by looking at how the icefish gets by with severe anemia, scientists may learn something about why humans don’t.
Schedule a TripThe ultimate goal of this switch-over is to run more and more of the economy on electricity, a strategy known as “electrify everything.” This makes sense because as renewable energy displaces fossil fuels, the electric grid will get cleaner and cleaner. Belarus owns a 2-0 lead over host Germany after Aliaksandra Sasnovich defeated Tatjana Maria, 7-6 (3), 6-3, and Aryna Sabalenka soared past Andrea Petkovic, 6-2, 6-1. The winner will take on the United States or Australia.
Mrs. Sharpless, 34, can keep watch over Focus’s byzantine, constantly updating social channels on the building’s ground floor, where a wall-mounted TV displays social interactions.

Schedule a TripSheindlin seemed to be siding with O’Farrell from the start, but she kept raising her hand or butting in with additional incriminating information; even in her attempts at silence, she emphatically nodded along to the Judge’s remarks, signaling some sort of relief, until suddenly Sheindlin snapped. “I don’t want you to shake your head,” she said. “I don’t want you to do anything. This is my job.” Though Sheindlin dismissed the defendant’s claims, saying that the plaintiff deserved the money from the disability check, neither O’Farrell nor Clokey came off as likable. In the wings, the cameraman next to me sighed: “I’m tired of this case.” (Byrd, Sheindlin’s bailiff, was surreptitiously doing the crossword just out of the camera’s frame.) Clokey stressed his contributions to the plaintiff’s home, contending that he wasn’t being paid fairly. Sheindlin pounced, asking him if he reported that income to the Social Security Administration. He began sputtering, until it was clear that he hadn’t. Sheindlin laughed a villainous laugh — a single, condescending “Ha!” — and walked out. O’Farrell called after her — they hadn’t even gotten to the false documents yet! He had filed an illegitimate restraining order! Sheindlin was already back in her dressing room. Three different species of flying squirrel — southern, northern and Humboldt’s flying squirrel — turned that color under ultraviolet illumination.
The outsize role Mr. Johnson has played in Mr. Trump’s Ukraine policy was illustrated in an 11-page slash-and-burn letter he released on Monday. In that telling, he appeared over and over as a supporting character in a series of events House investigators are scrutinizing alongside a number of witnesses who will testify this week. FRANKFURT — The once seemingly unstoppable German economy had the slowest growth of any eurozone country except Italy at the end of 2018, according to data published on Thursday that brought the impact of President Trump’s trade war into stark relief.

She was on a picket line in the bitter cold on Monday, striking with more than 2,000 other educators to protest the pay system she had once promoted.
Michael Platt, professor of neuroscience, psychology and marketing at the University of Pennsylvania, said people who aren't severely malnourished likely won't get those benefits from GodMode's ingredients, though. While there is technically a payoff of higher-paying jobs, not all parents aspire for their child to become a “success” via a high-paying career. The world needs teachers and social workers, who are not among the highest paid although their services are vital. Society also needs plumbers, electricians, mechanics and general contractors, who often are not college-educated.

Squeezable sides also appeared on the HTC U11, but you could customize which app was launched when squeezed. Since HTC's engineers also work on Google's Pixel phones, perhaps the feature will get some added functions if it comes to the Pixel 3.

Mr. Green owns a mink coat that hits below the waist and says he likes to wear it when he travels and on special occasions. “I wear it because I like the way it looks,” he said. “I like what it represents. I like the style.” By almost any objective measure, the president cannot claim victory based on this deal. That does not mean he will not try. In recent days, he has shifted his rhetoric from “building” a wall to “finishing” a wall.
Schedule a TripThe Galaxy S9's rounded edges are beautiful, but seem less responsive to screen taps. How did India get to this point, especially on the watch of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who came to power in 2014 partly on the back of promises to create more jobs? Back then, the manifesto of his Bharatiya Janata Party had called India’s labor force “the pillar of our growth.”
“When we made the decision to run the campaign this way, the players in the usual money-for-influence game dismissed it as naïve and said it would never work and it would kill the campaign,” Ms. Orthman said. “We’re pleased that our grass-roots strategy has been so effective that they’re now threatened enough to be attacking us for it.” But there was no dramatic confrontation.

Flourishing in the US market will be a much bigger challenge for the startup, but with contactless cards catching on and consumers adopting new payment behaviors, it's as good a time as any to give it a go. Ms. Kovesi’s situation echoes, in some ways, that of Donald Tusk, the European Council president, who was re-elected in 2017 despite strong opposition from the government of his native Poland.
Schedule a TripBut how Ultima Thule came to be isn't the only thing intriguing to the research team. When pressed about whether Ms. George’s post pandered to a well-known “Jews and money” trope, Ms. Manson said, “It was borderline offensive but there’s nothing anti-Semitic about it.”
The lack of accountability in Mr. Garner’s death has also remained an open wound in the city, adding to a sense of grievance against the police among black and Hispanic New Yorkers even as crime rates were falling to record lows. “I’m not going to sit here and say I’m going to do something that’s only going to benefit black people,” Ms. Harris told theGrio, a news website focused on African-American issues.
