For the moment, though, as Democratic candidates embrace Medicare for All, the stock market is shunning health insurance companies like UnitedHealth, Anthem, Centene, Cigna and Humana. Hospital groups like Tenet Healthcare and HCA Healthcare have been caught in the downturn, too, under the assumption that their revenue could be squeezed if the federal government is the country’s “single payer.” Idaho lawmakers are considering restrictions, such as work requirements, to limit the reach of the voters’ will.
His experience as an M.C. proved useful in 1980, when he played one in the remake of “The Jazz Singer,” starring Neil Diamond. It was Mr. Witherspoon’s first film role. Allen Crabbe had 17 points for the Nets, who came out of the All-Star break above .500 for the first time since 2013.

Sees No Clear Link to Russia.” The article left many readers, just days before the election, with the impression that the Trump campaign had been exonerated. Ms. Bray suggests following the mantra of “leave no trace” when visiting a destination, as the creation of solid waste — particularly plastic — has significant environmental impacts.
But Alligator mississippiensis is also a useful condensed symbol of how the Trump administration has survived Trump’s own deeply unpresidential conduct: Because most of the time, when the president asks for an alligator, the people around him figure out a way to make sure the sharp-toothed reptile doesn’t actually show up. Ms. Ripa presented an award to Lizzie Tisch, a supporter of jewelry designers, whom the event was honoring.

It’s unclear how close the United States is to signing deals with the additional countries and what the details of such agreements would be. Such pacts would most likely curb thousands of additional migrants from obtaining protections at the southwest border. On Tuesday, the president said he was “not happy” with the deal, but he all but ruled out another government shutdown, leading his allies to predict that he would grudgingly support it. Sean Hannity, the Fox News host who had denounced the deal as a “garbage compromise,” said he expected Mr. Trump to sign it.
Schedule a TripDreamed up by the former fashion designer Rifat Ozbek as a baroque temple of joyful excess, 5 Hertford Street embodies the aesthetic of a new wave of London-based designers, many of whom are not originally from the United Kingdom. (Ozbek, 65, is Turkish, though he has lived in London since 1969.) In defiance of the well-disciplined, if sometimes dour, minimalism of many contemporary interiors, their reinterpretation of the British maximalist tradition — exuberant, peripatetic, proudly eccentric — seems to bypass the brain entirely, chugging in by vintage railway car from an emotional terrain located somewhere between the Cotswolds, the Rajput era of India and the eucalyptus-splashed Beverly Hills compound of the flamboyant 20th-century artist and designer Tony Duquette. “Relevance,” Graham said, returning to the word as if it were a mantra. “That was John McCain’s word.”

West Virginia students will be the ones left to suffer the consequences while their fiercest advocates are muzzled.

While not a hit, the movie did contribute a number of ideas to Howard Hawks’s 1932 “Scarface.”

This isn't the only time Razer has retroactively added features. The phone also quietly added HDR and Dolby 5.1 support for Netflix after its release, which has us wondering what else the Razer Phone may have in store. While there is too much money to be made for the N.B.A. — and team owners — to consider shortening the season from the grueling 82-game march to the playoffs, the idea of borrowing from the Italians to make each tipoff count more should be enticing.
Schedule a TripMr. Widener could have been talking about anything. His comment reflected a worldview that is becoming ever more deeply ingrained in the white people who remain in rural America — Washington politicians are spending money that they shouldn’t be. In 2016, shortly after Mr. Trump’s victory, Katherine J. Cramer, a political scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, summed up the attitudes she observed after years of studying rural Americans: “The way these folks described the world to me, their basic concern was that people like them, in places like theirs, were overlooked and disrespected,” she wrote in Vox, explaining that her subjects considered “racial minorities on welfare” as well as “lazy urban professionals” working desk jobs to be undeserving of state and federal dollars. People like my neighbors hate that the government is spending money on those who don’t look like them and don’t live like them — but what I’ve learned since I came home is that they remain opposed even when they themselves stand to benefit.
