While we’ve spent the past five years obsessed with Russia’s meddling in America, we’ve conveniently forgotten America’s meddling in Russia. “Yanks to the Rescue: The Secret Story of How American Advisors Helped Yeltsin Win” proclaimed the headline. Some countries say they’re strong, some say heroic, some say divine or tragic or misunderstood. I loved the freedom, I loved the suburbs, I loved holidays full of eating and fireworks, I loved the ample personal space, and I loved, deeply loved, Ronald Reagan — the American president who fought for my freedom. Soon enough I realized that while for me, the American flag symbolized hope, for those Salvadorans, the American flag meant death.

He’d quit his job in venture capital in 2019 to try to launch his own fund giving early-stage money to tech startups founded by entrepreneurs of color, but investor interest was slim. Mercedes Bent, a partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners, says investors are often more comfortable investing in founders who share their backgrounds. Nearly 80% of investment partners in venture capital are white, according to a 2021 Deloitte study, and around 15% are Asian or Pacific Islander. In many ways, Mr. Norman says, both investors and Black founders are playing catch up. Many investors in Silicon Valley lack exposure to Black founders, he says, and the reverse is true as well.

An Olympian, a Failed Drug Test and an Accused Burrito

In the two days since, however, a new fact came to light that muddies her explanation: Houlihan herself isn’t sure she ate the pork burrito in question. Houlihan’s lawyer, Paul J. Greene, confirmed in a Wednesday interview something first reported by the website LetsRun: that Houlihan actually ordered a carne asada burrito, not pork, the day before her drug test. Brenda Martinez, an 800-meter runner also qualified for the Olympic trials, escaped a multi-year ban only after proving her failed drug test came from the legal antidepressant she was taking. Last year, CAS overturned the positive test of American long jumper Jarrion Lawson, who showed that a beef bowl at a restaurant caused his failed test. Whether Houlihan is innocent or not, the failed test has put her in a difficult position.

According to Mr. Boari, the ready-to-wear collection is also a way into new markets, especially those that are younger, female and mostly Chinese. He said that Ferrari’s fashion sights are set on distant dividends, on slow growth that will sprout in seven to 10 years, eventually contributing 10 percent of the brand’s earnings. (Ferrari, one of Italy’s most valuable public companies, had revenue of nearly $4 billion in 2020 despite the pandemic and a seven-week factory shutdown.) “But if our concern were just profits, we’d stick with licensed goods, which are extremely profitable,” Mr. Boari said. “It’s about changing a licensing model into a controlled model,” Mr. Elkann said.

My mother got very quiet when I told her and asked me to point out who he was. A Catholic nun who ran a program at the school saw that things weren’t working. Now the teachers were talking about having me skip another grade, which would put me in high school. My mom, who had retrained in computerized accounting, started using her free time to search for his name in prison databases. I thought only my closest friends knew anything about my father; everyone’s family at this school seemed close to perfect, so I rarely mentioned mine.

Opinion | Contested Elections Are a Danger to Our Military

The first presidential election I witnessed as a member of the military was George W. Bush vs. Al Gore in 2000. In much the same way one might say “I don’t smoke” when offered a cigarette, he said, “Oh, I don’t vote.” His answer confused me at the time. He then explained that as a military officer he felt it was his obligation to remain apolitical. That interaction served as an early lesson on the lengths some in the military would go to steer clear of politics. In 2016, Democrats contested Donald Trump’s legitimacy based on collusion between his campaign and Russia.

Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat who has — as she has done every year since taking office in 1991 — introduced a D.C. statehood measure. Many Republicans oppose statehood for Washington, D.C. — and for Puerto Rico — because any congressional representation would almost certainly be Democratic. “They cite various reasons for why they want D.C. statehood, but the truth is that these extra Senate seats would be a rubber stamp for their radical, far-left agenda.”The House in April passed a D.C. statehood bill with a record number of co-sponsors and the endorsement of President Joe Biden, as well. Even without the filibuster, key Democratic senators like Joe Manchin of West Virginia are not on board with making Washington, D.C., the 51st state. “My father, who is now retired, was around in 1959 when Alaska and Hawaii became the 49th and 50th states,” Beard said.

Whatever the group is doing is then interrupted by Allison (Annie Murphy), the classically attractive wife, who pauses their fun with her desire for a little more stereotypical domesticity. When “KCFH” was initially announced back in 2018, multiple outlets immediately connected it to the then-recently canceled sitcom “Kevin Can Wait,” starring Kevin James. Kevin isn’t just an overgrown man-child: He’s a domestic abuser who spent 10 years first grooming and then isolating Allison. It’s hard to know if “KCFH” will be AMC’s first nonzombie show to hit big since “Breaking Bad” ended. And, as the show goes on, the ironic “sitcom” sequences do get harder to sit through.

“In international relations, all politics is personal,” Biden said during a visit to South Korea in 2013. Just after touching down in the U.K. Wednesday, Biden told service members at a Royal Air Force station in Mildenhall that he’d visited “well over 100 countries” as a senator and vice president. Biden offered: “Possibilities.”“Personal relationships are the only vehicle by which you build trust,” Biden told Xi two years later when he returned for more meetings in Beijing. There’s a risk, though, of focusing on the personal at the expense of the substance. But Biden has often told the story of his last-known face-to-face meeting with Putin, telling him bluntly that he “has no soul.”“We understand each other,” Biden says Putin replied.

She had just driven almost 200 miles to reach us because there are so few abortion clinics in the South.

And why was his groundbreaking research on cancer metabolism all but forgotten by the end of the 20th century? It’s not because he fell into line: Warburg banned the Nazi flag and Nazi salute from his institute and had no Nazis on its staff. In the end, Warburg’s biggest sin seems to have been that he not only remained in Germany but survived. Apple ends the first chapter detailing Warburg’s life after the war with an anecdote about a dinner party in America during a 1949 trip that he hoped would result in employment. ‘What could I have done?’ The woman had an idea: ‘You could have committed suicide!’ Warburg and the other dinner guests sat stunned.

It was about earning someone’s trust, fostering a certain kind of openness while you ran through your set of tasks. But all she could do on that first day in the Covid wards was move quickly among her patients, willing herself not to linger. In the mid-1900s, that dynamic began to change, as it became clear that patients needed to have some rights, too. In the decades that followed, other physicians began to take the idea further. “Caring is supplanted by managing.” Instead of tending to full humans, doctors were treating distinct organs like a car mechanic examining malfunctioning parts.

The trial was investigating a new, potentially groundbreaking type of treatment for prostate cancer, a therapy that specifically targets a protein on the cancer cells. The treatment, part of a new class of liquid radiation drugs, obliterates most prostate cancer cells without hurting the surrounding tissue. Michael Rosenblum, who lives in New York City, had severe back pain before being diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in men in the U.S., after lung cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. “They had metastatic prostate cancer and basically had progressed through most of the life-prolonging therapies for it.”The medication, LU-PSMA-617, works by targeting a protein, prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) that is found on most prostate cancer cells, no matter where they occur, Morris explained.

And when he asked her to smile — a way of testing facial-muscle strength — it was a pale whisper of a smile.
