Mr. Trump insisted on a more comprehensive breaking up of the North’s nuclear programs, including its nuclear weapons and missiles. Janet, the all-powerful virtual assistant (imagine an intergalactic Alexa) on the metaphysical sitcom “The Good Place,” does not have a tattoo. But D’Arcy Carden, the actress who plays her, does. Three fletched arrows — a tribute to her three siblings and a play on her maiden name, Erokan (“arrow-can,” get it?) — nestle just below her left elbow.
Joffrey Baratheon really is a true villain, though. They say the best antagonists are ones with a legitimate axe to grind, but Joffrey is the exception to that rule. It's impossible not to hate him. You just can't wait for him to die. A truly effective bad guy. The third emotion is simple gratitude. Booker had to overcome challenges in life, and he has seen many more, but his family story is a success story. The church raised money for his grandmother to go to school. His parents worked at IBM. He was elected class president in high school before going off to Stanford and Yale Law.XS M S
TYPE ::MOUNTAIN BIKEBarbie turns 60 this year. And, like some of the guests who turned out last Friday for a birthday party in her honor, she’s had some work done. (She now comes in different body shapes and skin tones.) Mr. Assange has been living for years in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London to avoid arrest. It has not been clear what the sealed charge or charges relate to, but prosecuting him for publishing government secrets would raise novel issues about the limits of First Amendment press freedoms.
BRAND ::SPORTS SCOTTYIn 1964, Mr. Minton published “Candy,” a pornography spoof written six years earlier by the novelist and screenwriter Terry Southern and the poet Mason Hoffenberg. Reminiscent of “Candide,” Voltaire’s tale of an innocent nymphet, “Candy” had been banned in the United States and, like “Lolita,” initially published by Olympia Press. Another ambitious Minton project was publication of an 1894 translation of the voluminous memoirs of Casanova. Sixteen of them are on display in “El Anatsui: Triumphant Scale,” an exhibition of overwhelming power and beauty. It’s almost certainly the largest solo presentation ever of a black African artist in Europe, and “triumphant” is very much the word for this show, which continues through the end of July at what was originally a show palace for the Nazis, now a major German museum with an uncertain curatorial future. (The show then travels from the Haus der Kunst to museums in Doha, Qatar; Bern, Switzerland; and Bilbao, Spain.) It flanks the bottle-cap works with Mr. Anatsui’s ceramics, wood sculptures and works on paper from the 1970s to 1990s, plus remarkable new commissions, including a 66-part maze of free-hanging curtains and a frieze made of German and Nigerian printing plates bolted to the museum’s facade.
I was saddened and quite outraged to read about the young mother who died carrying her child in a stroller down the subway steps where I frequently travel. Sometimes the results, like vanity addresses on buildings, are seemingly harmless. Other times, they have changed how New York looks and feels.
