For Mr. Salvini’s critics — who see him as Europe’s version of the kind of populist strongman who now seems ascendant around the globe — the air he let in has a noxious whiff to it. The Astros made that deal in August, after Verlander had gotten through waivers. With no waiver trading period this year, the Astros had to act by Wednesday’s deadline to improve a team that is running away with the A.L. West. They turned to 2017 for inspiration, sending four prospects to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Zack Greinke and cash.
The issue of gun violence has burst onto the Washington agenda after a string of mass shootings that terrorized the nation over the summer. Democrats have been demanding that the president embrace a House-passed bill expanding background checks to cover even private gun sales. But that idea is a nonstarter in a Senate controlled by Republicans, as even Mr. Murphy concedes. You should get in the habit of interrogating every new app before downloading, regardless of where the company is based. Figure out what permissions it asks for, what it does with your information and ask: Is this sketchy? But don’t take it from me, my Wirecutter colleague Thorin Klosowski created some great instructions as part of our Privacy Project guide that might help you practice safe app downloading.

Few of these workers studied past high school. Many didn’t get their diploma. Barring immigration, such workers would be hard to find. There are fewer working-age Americans who studied no further than high school than there were 20 years ago, according to an analysis of census data by Ms. Orrenius and Madeline Zavodny of the University of North Florida. Trump is growing the pie by cannibalizing the future. He is creating a growth spurt by building up enormous financial and carbon debts that our kids will pay for.
Syrian Children Saved a German Village. And a Village Saved Itself. “It was really traumatizing,” said Ahmed, a Muslim woman who wears a hijab and says she typically braces for abuse whenever she posts about sports. “But I’d probably do all of it again.”
His mother, Shi Yumei, was waiting in the 12-by-12-foot room they share. Its window looks out at the back of two oversized Chinese characters that advertise the senior center downstairs. “Happiness,” the characters say. Three of the six former Trump aides who were charged by the special counsel acknowledged violating the foreign lobbying statute in their guilty pleas: Mr. Manafort, Rick Gates, who served as deputy campaign chairman for Mr. Trump in 2016, and Michael T.
