Gently fold and cut whisked egg whites into the béchamel mixture or batter by adding the egg whites a third at a time. It’s a delicate balance between adding enough cheese for flavor but not so much that the delicate whipped egg whites are weighed down. In a scrupulously clean, dry mixing bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tartar, if using. Use a flexible spatula to gently fold a third of egg whites into béchamel until incorporated.

Millions of Iranians planned to boycott the vote after the country’s election supervisory body disqualified nearly all nonconservative candidates. The interior ministry said it would extend voting if necessary because of purported technical errors in some polling stations. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei called on Iranians to vote to strengthen the system when he cast his ballot early on Friday. “Every single vote counts,” Mr. Khamenei said in televised remarks. Showing up at the ballot box and casting your vote helps build the future.”Ahead of the vote, Mr. Khamenei blamed a predicted low turnout on foreign media.

U.S. Catholic bishops are set to debate on Thursday whether to deny Communion to President Biden or other politicians who support abortion rights, a question that has split the U.S. Catholic hierarchy and raised tensions between its leadership and Pope Francis. The debate also reflects bishops’ different views over the leadership of Pope Francis, who has played down abortion as a political issue by comparison with his predecessors. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, or USCCB, is considering a proposed doctrinal document on the Eucharist that would include a section on the conditions under which Catholic politicians may receive Communion. Some bishops have wanted that section to state that politicians who support abortion rights such as Mr. Biden are ineligible to receive the sacrament. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, a leading conservative among the bishops, told The Wall Street Journal in March, “I do not think [Mr. Biden] should be presenting himself for Communion.”The archbishop is one of several prominent bishops who have issued statements in recent months saying pro-choice politicians shouldn’t receive Communion.

Selling things online is easier than ever. Kevin Stecko has spent more than two decades selling nostalgic apparel emblazoned with He-Man, ThunderCats and more online at “The print cost plus the postage costs should actually do as well or better than it does to acquire customers online,” Mr. Stecko said. The catalog costs about $86,000 to produce, though he is waiting for more sales to come in before judging its success. But the lower entry barriers and rising cost of online advertising are making it harder for existing and new sellers to cut through the crowd and find more customers.

As of May, the firm’s flagship Xingtai China Fund generated an annualized 33.9% return in the past five years, net of fees. That is more than double the 14.5% return on its benchmark, MSCI Inc.’s China index. For the first five months of 2021, the fund’s return was 16.3%, compared with MSCI China’s 1.7%. Xingtai avoids companies that have yet to turn a profit, putting swaths of China’s popular technology sector off-limits. The fund also doesn’t hold stocks of the country’s internet giants, including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and Tencent Holdings Ltd.

The six-lane bridge linking Tennessee and Arkansas helps make Memphis a critical U.S. distribution hub, along with the headquarters of FedEx Corp. , a large port and five major freight railroads. Typically, about 40,000 cars and trucks a day would cross the bridge, a double-arch steel structure that is almost 2 miles long. The Arkansas DOT, which is responsible for inspecting the bridge, said inspections in 2019 and 2020 missed the crack, and it since has fired the statewide bridge inspector. Repair work on the nearly 50-year-old bridge will stretch through at least July, according to the Tennessee Transportation Department, which handles repairs and maintenance. The two states are sharing the cost of repairs, officials said.

But Beijing has promoted the theory that COVID-19 entered China from overseas via contaminated frozen food, while a number of foreign politicians are also calling for more investigations into the possibility it leaked from a laboratory. "All bio-weapons related subjects that the country has should be subject to scrutiny," he was quoted as saying. Commenting on the U.S. study on Wednesday, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said it was now "obvious" the COVID-19 outbreak had "multiple origins" and that other countries should co-operate with the WHO. China has been criticised for its lack of transparency when it comes to disclosing data about early cases as well as the viruses studied at WIV.

"The Microsoft of 2021 is very different from the Microsoft of 2000 to me and to everyone at Microsoft," Nadella told CNBC following the two reports.

When Tahanie Aboushi was 14 years old, her father was convicted on charges of masterminding a federal conspiracy to hijack and rob truck drivers and sentenced to 22 years in prison. She is campaigning on an overhaul of the criminal-justice system, ending mass incarceration and declining to prosecute all but the most serious offenses. The winner will be the prohibitive favorite in the general election in a heavily Democratic borough. Ms. Aboushi told The Wall Street Journal that she planned to run on the Working Families Party ticket if she lost the Democratic primary. The left-of-center party endorsed Ms. Aboushi in the primary, and its continued backing could give any Democratic nominee a challenger from the left in the general election.

CHICAGO—Former President Barack Obama, once a community organizer, has gotten a taste of community organizing himself as preservationists and other activists have slowed the construction of his presidential center. The groundbreaking for the center to celebrate Mr. Obama and press its mission of fostering future leaders could finally happen late this summer after years of lawsuits, fundraising and federal reviews. The eventual opening, previously scheduled for 2021 before the challenges arose, is poised to set a modern record for time between a presidency and completion. Presidential libraries opened in recent decades have done so in about half the time as what is expected for Mr. Obama’s center, Wall Street Journal calculations show. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library welcomed visitors just more than 1,000 days after Mr. Reagan’s last day in office.
