Summer without fairs leaves farm kids heartbroken

The lyrics are stupid, but who cares? Tom Jones sings like nobody's business, and pounds the theme to Thunderball out with a silky energy. It's powerful but alluring. This is the sort of song you imagine Bond would play on a jukebox when he's about to seduce you. There are better James Bond theme songs, but none from a male singer. Tom Jones and James Bond probably go out for dry martinis together all the time. They're the perfect pair.

About 80% U.S. state and county fairs have been 告别“公摊”?住建部新规:买房按套内使用面积交易 by eliminating carnival rides, concerts and tractor pulls, according to the International Association of Fairs and Expositions. Some are only allowing youth livestock competitions and auctions or opening for “fair food drive-thrus.”

尽管每轮市场反弹最终都呈V形,每次连续的涨势中,个股的参与越来越少。今年春夏两季的绝大部分时间里,时事分析评论员们都专注于赢家与输家、大盘股和小盘股之间的明显差异。欧洲的通缩担忧以及日本的技术性衰退,使得分析师们愈加困惑,尽管美国经济正在好转,美国国库券收益率和通胀指标却双双下行。

在主张对华强硬的史蒂夫?班农(Steve Bannon)出局之后,人们就忍不住想要宣布特朗普政府的经济民族主义已死。但这忽视了唐纳德?特朗普(Donald Trump)是怎样一个人——他是一个本能的保护主义者。正如我们近来所了解到的,对于中国,他更想要的是“关税”而不是交易。他还认为打击中国是向其基础选民履行他的“美国优先”承诺的关键。

We learned about the causes and consequences of rising obesity around the world.

Mr Mallaby accepted the award at a dinner in London on November 22, where the guest speaker was Dido Harding, chief executive of TalkTalk, the UK telecoms group.
As the stars' private jets swooped in, the internet was going mad for 'the Dad bod'; the slightly flabby male physique was trending and there were plenty of examples on screen. Deborah Cole of AFP noted a “sweating, panting and shirtless” Gerard Depardieu in Valley of Love and a flash of Joaquin Phoenix's “tubby tummy” in Woody Allen's Irrational Man. When Colin Farrell strode the red carpet for the premiere of The Lobster, he looked his usual trim self – but in the film he is distinctly paunchy. To add some girth for the role of a lonely singleton in Yorgos Lanthimos' absurdist black comedy, Farrell went on a massively calorific diet that included drinking melted ice cream, he told the Hollywood Reporter. Eating “two cheeseburgers, fries and Coca-Colas, and two slices of chocolate cake at 10am is not that fun,” he said. “And I love cheese?burgers."
The big question is what oil prices will do in 2015. Oil prices are unsustainably low right now – many high-cost oil producers and oil-producing regions are currently operating in the red. That may work in the short-term, but over the medium and long-term, companies will be forced out of the market, precipitating a price rise. The big question is when they will rise, and by how much.

Catch up on the past 24 hours

Welcome back: Chanie Stamford woke her daughters Mkinnley, 6, and Saniyah, 11, at 6 a.m. on Friday and told them to shower, eat breakfast and get dressed.  Bright and early, they were up for an extraordinary first day of school: online, and at home. Seattle Public Schools (SPS), the state’s largest school district, kicked off its “soft start” to school Friday. There are no immediate plans to resume learning in-person.

Glitches galore: SPS students spent a few hours Friday getting to know their teachers and classmates over Microsoft Teams, but many families reported difficulty getting on the platform. Some said they were booted out of class calls or couldn’t access certain features such as the chat window or view camera feeds.

Money moves: Small and medium-sized Washington cities and counties that didn’t get coronavirus relief money directly from the federal government were given nearly $190 million this week from the state’s share of the funding. Details here.

We're No. 5: Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, more people have been taking daily walks or finding creative ways to work out at home. According to a study by Quote Wizard, outdoorsy Washington ranks fifth nationally on a list of states with the highest percentage of physically active people. The study used Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.

Biden tested: Joe Biden said Friday that he’d been tested at least once for the virus that causes COVID-19 and promised he will be tested regularly during his general election campaign against President Donald Trump. The Democratic nominee also blasted Trump for downplaying the coronavirus and thus ensuring that it will continue to kill Americans and ravage the economy.

Labor Day spike? Americans headed into the Labor Day weekend amid warnings from public health officials not to make the same mistakes they did over Memorial Day and July Fourth. Some officials fear that backyard parties, crowded bars and other gatherings will cause the coronavirus to come surging back.

Death toll: The global death toll from the coronavirus pandemic could triple by year’s end, with an additional 1.9 million deaths, while a fall wave of infections could drive fatalities in the United States to 410,000, according to a new forecast from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.

WHO promise: The head of the World Health Organization said the agency will not recommend any coronavirus vaccine before it is proved safe and effective, even as Russia and China have started using their experimental vaccines and other countries have proposed streamlining authorization procedures.
