In this version, the central character, a bachelor with commitment issues, is played by a woman (Lenk). He had been supportive of the changes to the musical, Elliott said. “He really understood about art,” she said, “and he really understood about the now and why art should speak to the now.”Right up until his death, Sondheim was both a fairly active writer and theatergoer. Earlier this month, Sondheim had traveled to Manhattan from his home in Connecticut to see these productions himself, attending the opening night of “Assassins” at the Classic Stage Company on Nov. 14 and a preview of “Company” the next day. This week, Sondheim discussed his current project — his final musical — with The New York Times, saying, “What else would I do with my time but write?”

Walmart will not be closing all its stores on Black Friday, contrary to claims made in a “positive misinformation” campaign on social media which said it was aimed at reducing stress on the company’s workers. Multiple posts on social media show altered headlines from Forbes (here, here, here, here) and The New York Times (here, here) announcing that Walmart will be closed on Black Friday. “I'm starting a misinformation campaign to convince people that Walmart is closed on Black Friday,” the user wrote.

There we were in the metaverse, longing for the one thing it can’t provide: the experience of touch. “If we lose touch with ourselves,” the philosopher Richard Kearney writes, “we lose touch with the world. Books like Mr. Kearney’s “Touch: Recovering Our Most Vital Sense” and Sushma Subramanian’s “How to Feel: The Science and Meaning of Touch,” both published this year, deal directly with this basic need. We’ve even developed a language that likens touch to basic sustenance and survival: Articles about “touch hunger” and “touch starvation” reveal just how vital this tactile connection is. Touch is central to our humanity, the first sense we develop.

But even those bakers seeking authenticity, who often strive to evoke an idealized European pastoral life, rely mostly on white flour. I love brioche and focaccia and pane Pugliese as much as the next person and have offered recipes for these and other foods made with white flour and sugar over the years. Many of these new bakers discovered the magic of natural starters, too, also known as sourdough. If you don’t have a starter in your fridge, you can start one now — it’s a lovely project for a holiday weekend — and be baking bread with it in three days. That starter will encourage you to rediscover the bread that sustained us before flour was roller-milled and sifted and bleached, because sourdough performs miracles with whole grain flour.

Cozy Season Is Here

It’s a pleasure to greet you this Friday after Thanksgiving, at the dawn of cozy season, here in the dwindling days of the year. I usually write to Times readers via the At Home and Away newsletter, where, for months, I’ve been contemplating ways we can lead a full and cultured life during the pandemic. Twice a week, I gather recommendations from my colleagues and from readers for passing the time richly, wherever you are. The day after Thanksgiving is one of those in-between days that the holiday season bestows on us: a day off from work for many, but not the actual big day. (The final season of “Insecure”?

A new coronavirus variant, B.1.1.529, has spread rapidly in South Africa. See all newslettersA chart from South African officials shows how a new coronavirus variant quickly came to dominate in a province of the country, supplanting the Delta variant. It was shown in a briefing from South Africa's Department of Health on Thursday warning about the B.1.1.529 variant. As of Friday, the variant had been detected in South Africa, Botswana, and Hong Kong. Its ascent was much faster than the Beta (green) and Delta (red) variants, which each took months to become dominant.

The recent shuttering of Zillow's home-flipping arm casts doubt on the accuracy of Zestimates. Spencer Rascoff, Zillow cofounder and former CEO, speaking at an event in New York City in 2018. Today, there are Zestimates for over 100 million homes, the majority of the 139 million homes in America. Zealously keeping up with Zestimates, he said, feels similar to other minor daily engagements: "Why do you read your horoscope?" Miller also said Zestimates are so effective in reeling users back in because they affirm what users want to see.

Supply chain delays are boosting sales of gift cards because some presents remain out of stock. Some people will hold on to their gift cards until shelves are restocked and they can buy what they really want. So some are holding out for a January boost, anticipating that customers will cash in gift cards that were given out over the holidays to buy items that weren't immediately available. Foreman told The Los Angeles Times that he's expecting a "huge" January as shoppers spend gift cards on things they couldn't find before Christmas. According to payment service Blackhawk Network, gift cards have become a popular option this holiday season and are no longer thought of as a last-minute gift but a practical choice.

In August the team in charge of AWS' marketing software Pinpoint pitched the idea of buying HubSpot. It's not uncommon for business applications to require years of development and sales cycles before taking off. To circumvent this problem, AWS' applications team came up with an out-of-box idea, internally called "Rebel Alliance," as Insider previously reported. Unwillingness to buyOne recent setback in AWS' applications team was the sudden departure of its vice president Larry Augustin, a high-profile hire from 2019. His resignation led to a massive exodus in the applications team, including some of Augustin's top deputies.

Gennette told the outlet that he supported Biden's order but "would just love to have it on a timetable that works for us."

A KLM Royal Dutch Airlines flight from South Africa was held at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol due to new travel restrictions relating to the B.1.1.529 COVID-19 variant, social media video shows. Two KLM Royal Dutch Airlines flights from South Africa to the Netherlands were temporarily barred from deplaning after touching down at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the airline confirmed to Insider. "The Johannesburg flight and our Cape Town flight cannot enter the Netherlands without any restrictions," Zimmerman recorded the captain of her flight as saying. An airport spokesperson told the NL Times that passengers were isolated from other Schiphol Airport passengers and that the GGD Kennemerland, a public health organization, is tasked with testing passengers. Schiphol Airport did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment about the conditions within the terminal.

The Dutch government banned all air travel from southern Africa early on Friday. Health Minister Hugo de Jonge said in a statement that passengers already in the air would have to undergo testing and quarantine upon arrival. Passengers on the two KLM flights, from Cape Town and Johannesburg, said they had been kept waiting on the tarmac for hours. Local health authorities later clarified that only passengers that test positive for COVID-19 and those sitting near those who test positive will have to quarantine. A spokesperson for the health authorities in Kennemerland, the region that oversees Schiphol, said it was likely some positive tests would be registered, given the large numbers of passengers.

Stephen Sondheim, the driving force behind some of Broadway’s most beloved and celebrated shows, died. An intellectually rigorous artist who perpetually sought new creative paths, Sondheim was the theater’s most revered and influential composer-lyricist of the last half of the 20th century, if not its most popular. His work melded words and music in a way that enhanced them both. “I have always conscientiously tried not to do the same thing twice,” Sondheim said, in an interview with The New York Times Magazine in 2000. It’s about having your vision of the way a show might be.”

The picture featured a tan, freckled model of Asian descent wearing traditional Chinese clothing while holding a black Lady Dior bag. The photo was removed from display at a Dior fashion exhibition in Shanghai in the wake of the controversy. I think that I must still formally apologize to everyone,” Chen said as she addressed her followers on social media earlier this week. “Dior is unwaveringly loyal to Chinese consumers and society.”NBC News has reached out to Dior for comment.

Director Paul Thomas Anderson's "Licorice Pizza" is being criticized by some on social media for including scenes where a white businessman speaks in a fake Asian accent with his on-screen wife, who is Japanese. In the film, a white male restaurateur, played by John Michael Higgins, speaks to his Japanese wife with a fake Asian accent. He appears again in the film with another Japanese woman, his new wife, and he repeats the attempted gag. "But the heartbreaking thing is me imagining an alternate version of this movie," he wrote, noting that the scenes mocking the Asian accent "added virtually nothing to it." My mother-in-law’s Japanese and my father-in-law is white, so seeing people speak English to her with a Japanese accent is something that happens all the time.
