Don’t Play With Your Kids. Seriously.

My baby went through the hall closet, describing the shoes in a babble that was only one-eighth English. I have three kids under 10 who don’t expect — or even want — to play with me. The constant wrangling and vigilance were so exhausting that my husband and I didn’t have the energy to play the way my son preferred — anything that involved full-body contact or pretend violence. But when my son was about 3, I realized his fictive worlds were vivid enough to continue without me. Thus began an experiment with expectation: Little by little, my husband and I would stretch the time our son could safely play by himself.

But the minute I had a chance to get vaccinated in early March, I took it. Fast forward a few months and … turns out a lot of people need to be convinced or lobbied or bribed. I’m sure you’ve seen the “Price Is Right” Showcase Showdown-like incentives being dangled to get reluctant people vaccinated lately. And props to the states enrolling previously vaccinated people like me into their lotteries, raffles and giveaways; we early adopters appreciate the recognition. So if John Doe is only reluctantly getting vaccinated now because he has a shot at paying his rent this month or winning a new car, good for him.

REUTERS/Kevin LamarqueThe United States is back as a cooperative leader of the free world under President Joe Biden, France's Emmanuel Macron said on Saturday, illustrating the relief felt by many key U.S. allies that the tumult of Donald Trump's presidency is over. Biden, asked by a reporter if America was back, turned to Macron and gestured with his Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses towards the French president that he should answer that question. "What you demonstrate is that leadership is partnership," Macron told Biden as they sat on an outdoor terrace with a sweeping view of the turquoise sea behind them. "The United States, I've said before, we're back," Biden said.

WASHINGTON — When the Teamsters were hit by a ransomware attack over Labor Day weekend in 2019, the hackers asked for a seven-figure payment. Teamsters officials alerted the FBI and asked for help in identifying the source of the attack. Bob Riha Jr / Reuters fileThe FBI advised the Teamsters to "just pay it," the first source said. Now, most ransomware gangs keep blogs and threaten to leak victims' files if they don't pay. Liska said that it used to be easier to keep ransomware attacks out of the public eye.

We’re attending formal, long-postponed weddings, birthday parties that call for cocktail attire and even in-person business meetings. However, after months spent hibernating at home in slovenly sweatpants and drab pajamas, who remembers how to dress up? Figuring out what to wear for these much-anticipated occasions can daunt even the confident. I gave a great deal of forethought, however, to how we would greet: Cheek kisses must be completely pre-pandemic, right?

Particularly coming out of World War II, the Soviet Union and the United States were the global leaders in vaccine science. So while the technology was developed in the United States, there just was no way to test this in the United States. And they visited with American scientists and asked for a sample of this new polio vaccine to bring back to the Soviet Union. And the live polio vaccine sample was carried to the Soviet Union by one account in the pocket of Mikhail Chumakov. And they decide that they will provide the live polio vaccine to their own young children on sugar cubes.

U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said on Thursday the Biden administration was working on multiple fronts to end the pandemic. "Extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary measures," Tai told a virtual town hall for union members hosted by the AFL-CIO trade federation. Sean Flynn, an expert on intellectual property at American University Washington, said he expects the WTO to reach a deal on a waiver during a ministerial meeting later this year. The pharmaceutical industry argues that companies invested their own funds to develop vaccines and waiving their IP rights will undermine such work in the future. Robert Grant, senior director of international affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Innovation Policy Center, said there was "no evidence" that waiving intellectual property rights would boost vaccine production.

Britain’s economic recovery continues as lockdowns end. The British economy grew 2.3 percent in April from the month before, the third consecutive month of growth.

More than any other candidate, Mr. Adams has discussed issues of rising gun violence and other crime, at a time when polls show public safety to be a top priority for New York Democratic voters. At the debate, the contenders focused on issues of gun violence as well as hate crimes. She went on to sketch out plans for confronting mental illness and homelessness as part of the solution. And as in previous debates, some of the clearest distinctions in the field emerged over issues of public safety, as Ms. Wiley staked out some of the most left-leaning positions on the stage. Asked about the idea of taking guns away from New York Police Department officers, every candidate except for Ms. Wiley said no.

Brazil score early and late to defeat Paraguay 2-0

An early goal from Neymar and a late second from Lucas Paqueta gave Brazil a 2-0 win against Paraguay in a World Cup qualifier in Asuncion on Tuesday, giving them a sixth straight victory in South America's preliminaries. Brazil had not beaten Paraguay away from home since 1985 but that record looked in danger as early as the third minute when Neymar controlled an awkward cross from Gabriel Jesus and side-footed home from eight meters out. The Paris St Germain striker came into the match with four goals and three assists in their five qualifying games so far, the best haul in the tournament, and the goal was his 66th in 105 games for Brazil. “It was a game where we scored early in the first half and that really settled us down and allowed us to play the ball about and Paraguay had to chase the game and we killed it right at the end,” said defender Marquinhos. The result leaves them top of the South American qualifying group for Qatar 2022 with a maximum 18 points.
