"We have investigated hate speech promoted online through social media, but it's brought to us by concerned community members," said Sean Whitcomb, public affairs director for the Seattle police. In a town where everyone is always filleting everyone else, Mr. Iger floats above it all, cosseted in what some call a “a cult of nice.” He may own most of the box office, but he is shielded from schadenfreude because the people who would ordinarily begrudge him are happy that someone was able to assail the unassailable Netflix, and rescue the spirit of Old Hollywood from the takeover of the deep-pocketed tech giants.
I was taking in an exhibition from Aery, a new augmented reality platform tailored to digital art exhibitions. Looking up to the heavens through an iPad, and not at my feet, I was using a loaner tablet to get an artwork by Richard Humann to magically appear. Mr. Wizner noted that in April, a group of former national security officials filed an unusual constitutional lawsuit challenging the system as “dysfunctional” in a way they said unjustifiably restricted their free-speech and due-process rights. They argued that the system was plagued by a patchwork of ambiguous policies and vague standards that put too much discretionary power in the hands of reviewing officials.

The Obama rule was designed to limit pollution in about 60 percent of the nation’s bodies of water, protecting sources of drinking water for about one-third of the United States.
NASA turns 60: The space agency has taken humanity farther than anyone else, and it has plans to go further. In reality, however, the tax cut delivered at most a couple of quarters of higher growth. More specifically, huge tax breaks for corporations haven’t delivered the promised surge in wages and business investment; instead, corporations used the windfall to buy back stocks and pay higher dividends.

By not knowing the rules, he showed exactly what those rules are, and just how the Silicon Valley positivity machine runs. For venture capitalists, Twitter is a place to sell. It’s a place to talk up portfolio companies. It’s a place to perform the industry pastime of “thought leading.”
A better browser, new multitasking, a smoother Pencil... and everyone's excited by a mouse. Apple's newest version of the iPad OS is here as a public beta for you to download (on a secondary device, please). And you can, indeed, pair a Bluetooth mouse and use it to control your iPad. It seems, at first, like wish fulfillment. I've wanted mouse -- or, actually, trackpad -- support for years. Seven and a half years, to be precise. The sports world is filled with people whose job is to sell tickets, advertisements, sponsorships, luxury boxes and all manner of game-day experiences. The more, the better. Any fan will do.

There have also been multiple political scandals involving blackface this year. In September, photos and a video emerged of Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, dressing up in blackface and brownface in the 1990s and in 2001. (He went on to win a narrow victory in a federal election last month, though his Liberal party lost its majority in the House of Commons.)

Schedule a TripThe government claimed it was acting to prevent a planned terrorist attack. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his governing Bharatiya Janata Party, deeply rooted in Hindu nationalist ideology, have long made no secret of their intention to revoke the articles in the Indian Constitution granting the predominantly Muslim Kashmir a special status — a move the B.J.P. sees as “correcting a historical blunder.” But if seniors have sometimes been presented as stunts, this season has felt different, with the tone shifting away from tokenization and toward sincere objectification. Junya Watanabe’s fall 2019 runway show consisted almost entirely of classically handsome men with what the designer described as “silver swagger.” At Berluti, older men walked in marble-printed shirts and long leather trenches, while Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia, the godfather of dadcore, enlisted models who looked less like literal fathers and more like the colloquial daddy — or, to venture even further down the corridor of slang, the zaddy. (Both terms connote an older man with a measured confidence, but zaddies also have a certain extra something.)
Being so gung-ho hasn’t always served me well — last summer, while reporting a column about a yoga retreat, I jumped into a lake and broke my ankle. I stayed and finished reporting the story with a cast and crutches, though. The candidates Mr. Trump mentioned as the next national security adviser included Robert C. O’Brien, the special presidential envoy for hostage affairs who has brokered the release of high-profile detainees around the world, and Maj. Gen. Ricky L. Waddell, the principal military adviser to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a former deputy national security adviser to Mr. Trump.

He said it was the demonstrators who were the first to use force. “Bulgari is a lifestyle brand, they’re in fine jewelry, they’re in hotels, they’re in fragrance and beauty,” Mr. Wang said. “I love that they gave me complete creative control to reimagine their Serpenti collection.”
In the case of any kind of quota, there are obvious trade-offs between one category (gender) and others (race, sexual orientation, disability status among them) that arguably deserve more consideration. As usual, the law is a lagging indicator. Gender is easier (though not always easy!) to notice and tally in ways that other statuses aren’t. In a perfect world, there would never be a roomful of white men deciding whether to pick a woman instead of a person of color for a “diversity slot.” We do not live in a perfect world.

Schedule a TripHe was an optimist and in the days right after Mr. Trump’s election, he kept his glass-half-full attitude, telling me that the unorthodox president-elect might be just what was needed to get things going in Washington. But that didn’t last long. I remember the glum expression on his face as he checked the new president’s Twitter feed while silently sipping his coffee. I urged him to find another morning routine, to check out of social media for a while. I’m sounding the alarm because his words are dangerous and having real-world consequences around the globe. But even if the president ignores this alarm and continues on this path, there are important steps the rest of us can take to protect the free press and support those who dedicate their lives to seeking truth around the world.

Waddell said Brind’Amour’s experience with the franchise was an asset. Both leaders are framing their battles as populist crusades — the people versus the elite — and they have reasons for doing so. Mr. Johnson remains a relatively popular figure in Britain; the Conservative Party has held on to its lead in the polls through weeks of wrenching debate over Brexit.
If passed, the legislation would provide million a year for government digital services, an additional million would go toward seed grants for state and local governments to upgrade their systems in two years. The bill also requires at least half the grants to be used to hire talent instead of buying products. Governments would report on their progress at the end of the two-year period, and the US Digital Service would report to Congress biannually on the impact. But the statement only intensified the uproar over Mr. Trump’s storm prediction as critics accused his administration of politicizing the weather. The Commerce Department inspector general has opened an investigation, and on Wednesday, a Democrat-controlled House science committee kicked off its own inquiry.

“We have programs set up for 2020 and 2021,” she said. “We don’t want for objects, ideas or exhibitions.” I viewed the inside of the mast as a new glass elevator was being installed and a “cocoon” — an engineering tour de force that hung from the mast to protect construction workers hanging high in the air — was coming down. The painstaking, weather-dependent process has pushed the reopening of the 102nd floor observatory from late September to Oct. 7.
