In some cases, doing nothing about distinguishing marks may hurt suspects the most. A state appeals court in New Jersey last year tossed out an identification in which a witness had selected a man as the perpetrator because he was the only person with face tattoos in a photo array. The company has been making daily calls with carriers, offering tours of its 737 Max factory, above in Renton, Wash., and meeting with pilots and flight attendants in an effort to win back trust. But those overtures have been met with skepticism after Boeing’s early bungled response to deadly crashes involving the 737 Max.
The similarities abound: Brexiteers love to compare their cause to America’s war for independence. At a recent right-wing rally, one man marched with a scale model of the Liberty Bell. Mr. Trump has exuberantly backed Brexit, while his friend, the Brexit godfather Nigel Farage, appears on Fox News, invoking Europe’s migrant crisis as a reason to back Mr. Trump’s wall. And Mr. Ramaphosa has appointed Raymond Zondo, the deputy chief justice, to head the Commission of Inquiry Into State Capture, Corruption and Fraud. South Africans are transfixed by the proceedings of the commission, which are broadcast live almost every day. The revelations run from tawdry micro-seductions (a Louis Vuitton handbag stuffed with cash) to macro-estimates (the calculation that Mr. Zuma’s 2015 attempt to appoint a lackey as finance minister cost the economy billion).

They let all the personal things about her life outweigh why they fell in love with her in the first place.”
Alain Delaquérière contributed research. It’s Tuesday. There’s a special election today for the New York City Council seat vacated by Jumaane Williams, who was elected as the city’s public advocate in February.
Schedule a TripCorinne Cobson, a French fashion designer whose self-assured clothing for women gained acclaim in the 1980s and ’90s, died on April 16 at a clinic in Saint-Cloud, a suburb of Paris. She was 62. On Friday, it was tamed by Wall Street.
In 2016, Birthright added a mandatory two-hour lecture on geopolitics. Birthright also spent a year developing nearly two dozen new optional activities involving Israeli Arabs, including a visit to Givat Haviva, a center that fosters cooperation between Israel’s Jewish and Arab populations. “It was a clean operation,” the police officer said. “He was in our wanted list for a long time.”
Schedule a TripHenry Harteveldt, a travel industry analyst, said travelers would be happy to see the impasse broken. And I can still do that! [Laughs] I’m still available to be hired as an actress. I can do more if people have fun ideas! You almost feel that she’s been burdened by this religion, so you want to see her when she started out, when she was young and innocent. I would be really interested to see her as a child, in fact. I would love that. But as much as it was painful and sad to have this end, it always feels like this is just the way it had to be. It was a great seven years, and it was the perfect time.
Despite Mr. Sessions’s opposition, the bill passed in the Democratic Senate in 2013. As it headed to the Republican House, Mr. Miller drafted a 30-page memo that Mr. Sessions shared with the House Republican caucus, urging members to oppose the bill on behalf of “millions of struggling American workers.” Luis Alfonso de Alba, a Mexican diplomat who is currently the United Nations Secretary General’s envoy on climate change, declined to say which countries were expected to announce higher climate ambitions, nor whether they would be enough to make a difference to the fate of the world.
Schedule a TripHastings didn’t claim all 42,000 square feet for themselves. Their offices occupy 24,000 square feet, with the remainder divided between two tenants on the north side of the building. Referring to Mr. Sanders, he said that other than “the more ideological candidates” nobody’s “support is consolidated at this point.”
Elsewhere, Kingsley’s jurist and a young accomplice are staging honey traps for pedophiles before rearranging their testicles and cleaning out their bank accounts. What motivates this vigilantism is anyone’s guess: back stories are not Raymond’s forte, at least on the evidence of this witless first feature. Caught between a hero with no personality and a villain with way too much (Fletcher’s slobbering performance has to be seen to be believed), Raymond comforts himself with shots of people gazing pensively at clues and pulling grisly things from drains. “I wasn’t surprised at all,” Ms. Chang said with a wry laugh. “I was just like, ‘Oh, they’ve finally got evidence.’”
Schedule a TripSince January, security has improved on Intel chips. The company rolled out the last microcode update in March. What's more, Google implemented and shared a tool it calls retpoline that lets the affected chips operate more safely, sometimes without the patches. Some violence always accompanies the May Day rally, but this year the government had warned that the risk was higher since the demonstration would unite the violent elements of the Yellow Vest movement, labor militants and the so-called Black Blocs — a loose international group of anarchist and anticapitalist vandals dressed in black who smashed numerous shop windows last year.
“When we did the Off Broadway run, I probably did a couple times a week, and I’m hoping to do something similar to that” on Broadway, he said. “It will be a happy time when I will watch the edit,” he said, referring to “In the Heights,” “and rap with my friends.” Canyon Ranch, which two years ago announced its entry into the industry, expects to open multiple facilities around the country that offer a similar menu.
Schedule a TripThe quickest way to slow this epidemic is an F.D.A. ban on e-cigarette flavors that are proved to hook children. The federal government should also regulate e-cigarette advertising. If we don’t act soon, we will have a generation of nicotine addicts. And that’s not cool. Global concern: China’s playbook is most evident in Australia, but many countries are grappling with Chinese efforts to boost its geopolitical standing and maintain its authoritarian power at home.
Check out the extended shows on YouTube. But populists picking up the tales and myths often seems far from the artists’ intentions.
Schedule a TripMs. Cendana could have anticipated a number of comments — restaurant recommendations, tips about visiting the feudal castle there — but certainly not this one: “If you put an apostrophe after ‘hand,’ it either means ‘hand is’ or something that belongs to the hand. In this case, it should be ‘hands’ as you’re referring to multiple hands.” (The post no longer appears in Ms. Cendana’s feed.) Jesse AllenSanta Fe, N.M.
We filmed in Changchun, where Lulu Wang’s family is from and everything was very real, like the wedding. I hadn’t been back to China in a long time.

Schedule a TripKANSAS CITY, Mo. — Voters decided on Tuesday to strip the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s name from a street in Kansas City, Mo., nine months after city leaders dedicated a major thoroughfare to the civil rights leader. Shortly after my public plea for employment, a friend of a friend sent me a Facebook message alerting me to an opening in her department. Three rounds of interviews later, this acquaintance was my boss. (She’s now one of my closest friends).
Fui a Maré días antes de que la onegé Redes da Maré enviara a los jueces del Tribunal de Justicia 1509 cartas de niños en las que explican por qué la policía no debería disparar en contra de sus casas como ha empezado a hacer el gobierno de Witzel. “A mí no me gusta el helicóptero porque dispara y la gente muere. Esto está mal”, dice una carta en la que aparece un dibujo de un policía montado en un caveirão volador descargando en contra de la favela. Desde la ventana de una casita, una persona gesticula a los policías, como quien intenta mandar un mensaje obvio: hay personas viviendo ahí. The Arctic is heating up far faster than the world average because of rising greenhouse gas emissions, scientists have warned. Over the past five years, the region has been warmer than at any time since 1900, when record keeping began.
Schedule a TripAlso reminiscent of the ’90s: I could enter the internet only from one corner of a room — and it was so slow that I half expected to see an AOL logo materialize on the screen. Almost immediately thereafter, the China talks broke down, and Mr. Trump said he would increase tariffs until a deal was reached. Stocks are down more than 6 percent since then. On Wall Street, the Standard & Poor’s 500 index opened down more than 1 percent, following declines in Europe and parts of Asia. The Mexican peso also slid.
House Republicans rejected the bill out of hand. Representative Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, the ranking Republican on the House Education Committee, issued a joint statement with Representative Lloyd K. Smucker of Pennsylvania, the ranking Republican on the panel’s higher education subcommittee, blasting the bill’s “burdensome requirements and bureaucratic red tape.” My colleagues and I spent grueling weeks in Turkey, Germany and Lebanon listening to hours of survivors’ detailed recollections and cross-referencing them. One survivor in Düsseldorf, still hollow-eyed and nervous after his ordeal, was so desperate to tell his story to help others that he was still calling out details as our departing train pulled away.
Schedule a TripMy Portal arrived with some predownloaded apps like Pandora and Facebook Watch, Facebook's curated video player. But you can add more when you click on the Apps app. Some options include CNN News and Food Network. There still aren't a ton of choices here, but Facebook is slowly adding more. I downloaded the CNN app and was able to view video of the latest news and select top news by topics such as Business and Lifestyle. Indeed, the Trump administration has over the last two years moved in the opposite direction, cutting off aid from the United States to the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza because, as the president once put it, Americans “get no appreciation or respect” in response.
When an Israeli soldier killed Rouzan al-Najjar, Palestinians called her an innocent martyr. Israel portrayed her as a threat. The truth is more complicated. Mr. Bey, who was born and raised in Queens, N.Y., and whose own practice has been concerned with ideas of community and the continuum of black life, met Mr. Hammons early in his tenure in New York. Mr. Bey had recently begun photographing street life in Harlem and was showing his images at the Studio Museum of Harlem, where Ms. Bryant was working. When she left to open JAM on 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, Mr. Bey fell in with its circle of artists, many of whom, including Mr. Hammons, Senga Nengudi, and Maren Hassinger, had been working in Los Angeles.

Schedule a TripAt the Cybertruck's premiere on Thursday, Musk also showed off an ATV that can fit (and charge) inside the truck's bed. All nations are imperfect, but some are more imperfect than others. Should you boycott Myanmar because of its treatment of the Rohingya, or Israel because of its treatment of Palestinians? How about Slovakia for its treatment of the Roma, or the United States for its treatment of African-Americans? Which glass house do you live in, and where would you like to direct your stones?
— Faye Richardson, Phoenix The commercialization of lithium-ion batteries in the 1990s helped make possible smartphones, electric vehicles and more. It gave us power storage that was light, cost-effective, high energy density and low maintenance.
