This isn't the only time that Trump has inserted his views into deliberations of a major media merger. As a candidate for president, Trump vowed to block the merger between AT&T and Time Warner, saying it would concentrate too much power in one company. Trump's Justice Department sued to block that merger. But a judge didn't agree, and the merger was allowed to proceed without any conditions. AT&T and Time warner closed their deal in June. The DOJ has appealed that decision. Then I stopped myself. What the hell? By turning this thought into a post, I was trespassing on my own most precious solitude.
“Leader McCarthy’s decision to remove me from committees is a political decision that ignores the truth,” he said. The House measure would allocate 0 million to set up a facility, based on a proposal from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, that would allow for the processing and care of migrant families and children, offer food and shelter and handle asylum claims.
Schedule a TripThat is because the Boston Celtics, regarded for some time as the Lakers’ foremost challenger in the long-anticipated trade sweepstakes for Davis, are ineligible to acquire Davis via trade while the All-Star guard Kyrie Irving is on Boston’s roster. League rules preclude one team from having two players on the designated rookie scale contract extensions possessed by both Davis and Irving. She slightly squints her eyes and slightly retracts her ears. Her message comes through as clearly as a dog raising its eyebrows. But the look is disdain, not empathy.
By releasing the episodes with phases of the competition, Netflix is hoping to build momentum with fans and avoid spoilers, but this isn’t happening with more shows right now, Netflix said. The levity with Mr. Putin, however, dominated his first full day in Osaka and came at a time when the Kremlin leader has felt emboldened on the world stage, flexing Russian muscle in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and even South America. In an interview published just hours before the meeting, Mr. Putin celebrated the rise of the populist right in Europe and the United States and declared that traditional Western-style liberalism “has become obsolete.”
Schedule a TripThis skimmer was able to camouflage itself by using typical code like "optEmbed" and "selectDuration." Typically, skimmers have to be specifically tailored for the payment system it's targeting, but de Groot found that this skimmer on Puma Australia's website was a jack of all trades. The Russian incursion began with a volley of airstrikes “targeting ISIS” in an area where there were no records of its activity. It was instead home to anti-Assad militias and at least one C.I.A.-trained group. The following day, Lavrov clarified that the Russian air campaign was targeting “all terrorists.” Over the coming weeks, Russia surprised Western officials with its modernized military. After the country’s disastrous war with Georgia in 2008, Putin had embarked on an extensive modernization program. Russia deployed 215 new weapons, showcasing them to potential buyers. Strikes utilized the relatively untested Sukhoi Su-34 strike fighter and a ship-based cruise missile fired more than 900 miles from the Caspian Sea, which, according to some analysts, exceeded American capabilities. Putin was open about Russia’s intended message. “It is one thing for the experts to be aware that Russia supposedly has these weapons, and another thing for them to see for the first time that they do really exist,” he said on state television.
Steven Matz (3-3) was activated from the 10-day injured list to make his first start for the Mets since May 3 at Milwaukee. He allowed two runs and five hits in three and two-thirds innings. He struck out six and walked two. In her narration, the director Nisha Ganatra discusses how she put Thompson and Kaling on opposite sides of the table to signify that the two women are “really on the same journey,” if at different points in their career. She also talks about techniques that add visual variety to a scene that mostly consists of characters talking around a table.
Schedule a TripWhat does the West have to say in its own defense? Who does it have to say it? And who will fix the rigging and reset the rudder in time for the next squall? This stark change in expectations coincides with a deterioration in the outlook for growth, after a month of worsening trade relations and slumping stock markets.
"Having a war of ideas and technology and engines is healthy for the web," said Brad Frost, a web developer, author and consultant. Instead, he said, "you're starting to see a lot of sites -- including, scarily, Google-owned sites -- that only work in Chrome, which absolutely goes against the fabric of the web." Prince Mohammed’s push in the Horn of Africa has set off a competition for access and influence among rivals like Turkey and Qatar. In Somalia, after allegations of bribery by the fragile central government, Emirati forces have shifted to the semiautonomous regions of Puntland and Somaliland.
Schedule a TripThe gruesome killing of the teenager shocked the city and rattled Mr. Joseph’s neighborhood, where his family of immigrants from Haiti had settled about a decade ago. The boy was a sophomore at the High School for Youth and Community Development at Erasmus. He had been leaving his apartment to get something to eat when Mr. Amilcar confronted him in the lobby. Overruling several top advisers, he threatened to impose escalating tariffs on imports from Mexico in an effort to force the country to block the flow of migrants toward the U.S. border. Trade tensions had already led American companies to shift operations to Mexico from China. Now that strategy may be upended.
The Sabre system was created in the 1960s as part of a partnership between I.B.M. and American Airlines, which named it the Semi-Automated Business Research Environment. It was spun off from American as a separate company in 2000. Sabre Corporation is now a travel technology company based in Southlake, Tex., that provides reservation systems to airlines worldwide. Mr. Weinhaus is skeptical about the benefit to individual studios of grouping exercise studios and gyms in one location, because it is important to differentiate the quality of your brand from others. But he feels differently when it is his company in control of a cluster. On the Upper West Side of Manhattan, below a Related Co. apartment building, there is on one block an Equinox, an always-packed SoulCycle and, directly around the corner, a 20,000-square-foot Pure Yoga studio, which is also owned by Equinox. Though Equinox offers both yoga and indoor cycling, gyms and boutique studios “are not competing for the same users,” Mr. Weinhaus said.

He blamed Ms. Pelosi, who until this week had been reluctant to pursue impeachment, which so far does not have the support of most Americans in polls. “She’s lost her way,” Mr. Trump said. “She’s been taken over by the radical left.” Speaking to reporters Tuesday, the president said he had a very good relationship with Mr. Xi and that the countries had “a very good chance” of reaching a deal.

A senior defense official said that no progress had been made over the dispute, and that Turkey remains vulnerable to economic retribution under a 2017 law known as the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act. The Pentagon recently said it would stop training Turkish pilots on the jets starting July 31.

Schedule a TripThe conviction, apparently widespread in American policy circles, that in the Persian Gulf (and elsewhere) the United States is compelled to take sides, has been a source of recurring mischief. No doubt the escalating rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran poses a danger of further destabilizing the gulf. But the United States is under no obligation to underwrite the folly of one side or the other. She is the daughter of Diane M. Warren and Dr. Jeffrey S. Warren of Fairfield, Conn.

« Chaque fois que je traverse ce désert, je sens que la mort est passée par là, et qu’elle est toujours là », se désole Gilbert Carette, membre d’un groupe citoyen de sécurité ferroviaire constitué après la tragédie. « Le meilleur remède pour retrouver notre paix d’esprit, ce serait de remplir ce vide. » “It’s the message of the film that the world is a lesser place without these songs,” Oakes said.
Schedule a TripPast Republican presidents were deeply committed to American global leadership, the Atlantic alliance, good relations with allies like Canada and publicly calling out brutal regimes like North Korea. No more. Today the Republican Party is led by a man who levels attacks on Canada even as he admits he “fell in love” after exchanging “beautiful letters” with the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. Mr. Kim, it used to go without saying, rules what is arguably the most repressive government on earth; this is the man to whom Mr. Trump makes enormous concessions while getting almost nothing in return. And let’s not forget, however remote it might seem now, that the idea that a Republican president would side with the leader of Russia rather than his own intelligence agencies was once unimaginable. Under Mr. Trump, it happened. Mr. Trump has also turned a party that for decades was pro-immigration and friendly with Mexico — and in the case of Reagan, in favor of amnesty for undocumented workers and against putting up even a fence on the southern border — into one that is increasingly antagonistic toward immigrants and relentlessly hostile to Mexico, the current thaw notwithstanding.

The breach, which BA disclosed in September, saw people visiting its website being diverted to a fraudulent site, where details including name, billing address, email address and payment information were harvested. Mr. Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, provided the deciding vote last year in a case that hobbled public-sector unions by barring the mandatory collection of fees from workers who decline to join. The ruling allows workers to enjoy the benefits of unions without contributing to the cost — and, over time, will make it more difficult for unions to provide those benefits. The confirmation of Mr. Trump’s second nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, has solidified a pro-business majority on the court.

“I think the inquiry is important, yes, and where it leads from here is going to be driven by the facts that are established,” he said. I was given an exclusive advance copy of a new report by the Victory Institute, a group that promotes L.G.B.T.Q. candidates. It found that the number of known L.G.B.T.Q. elected officials at the municipal, state and national levels in America rose 24.9 percent, to 698 from 559, over the past year. And while some of that is attributable to more politicians coming out, much is attributable to more being voted into office.
Schedule a TripThat memo became more interesting to me after The New York Times reported on the new criminal investigation in the Eastern District. Facebook was already lousy with active investigations led by an alphabet of federal agencies including the Federal Trade Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well state inquiries and tons of lawsuits. What’s more, federal prosecutors in the Northern District of California are looking into whether Facebook was in fact misled by Cambridge Analytica or if it knew more than it has acknowledged. But that inquiry has been only flirting with the idea of criminal culpability. The new one revealed on Wednesday is a significant escalation for the company. Ebola is ravaging the northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo, a country riven by violent conflict and neglected for decades by the international community. The World Health Organization has less than half of the million it needs to confront the crisis. And the United States government has undermined its own experts with a slow-footed response and cumbersome aid restrictions.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Mr. Assad’s government that “we’re going to do everything we can reasonably do to prevent this kind of thing from happening again.” Fabian Almazan Trio, ‘The Everglades’Fabian Almazan puts his money — and his music — where his mouth is, advocating for environmental justice as both an improviser and an impresario. The Cuban-born pianist’s label, Biophilia Records, distributes CD-size booklets with no plastic discs (each package includes a download code instead), and encourages its artists to participate in sustainability activism. On Friday, Almazan’s trio released “This Land Abounds With Life,” the most inspired album in his already-impressive career, and an extended meditation on the imperiled majesty of the natural world. The centerpiece is a 13-minute-long epic titled “The Everglades,” which seems to chart the senescence of the Florida wetlands: It starts on a low lament, with open-tone electronics widening the space around his tolling piano, before the trio bursts into a driving fury — as brutal and uncontainable as the rising sea. Then comes a disappearance, an electroacoustic passage that sounds like the hum of radioactive rubble, and ultimately a return to that original lament. RUSSONELLO
Schedule a TripR. Kelly: The R&B singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four women, three of whom had been minors at the time. He resolved several earlier such cases with nondisclosure agreements, but his actions have come under fresh scrutiny after BuzzFeed and a recent six-part documentary, “Surviving R. Kelly,” reported on his apparent sex cult. “So what happens now is that someone comes up to net once or twice early, loses a point and decides it’s not worth doing. But the point is to apply pressure throughout the entire match. And on big points, late in a set or match, it’s not so easy to hit those passing shots.”
Nvidia Shield TV with remote (9, off) The jack-of-many-trades Nvidia 4K HDR streaming and gaming box is currently 9 or the version that doesn't include a game controller, but on Prime Day you can snag it for less. Read the CNET review of the Nvidia Shield TV. It would be easy to find fault with Woodrow Wilson for all the ways he failed to avert that outcome. With his refusal to compromise, his contempt for Congress and his casual racism, he was a very flawed messenger for the democratic era that he welcomed at every juncture.
