In Pursuit of Cartoonish Perfection in a Japanese Rice Bowl

Today 15:29 GMT

A Japanese rice bowl capped with golden slices of pork cutlet, held together with barely cooked eggs and translucent onions — textures exaggerated, colors saturated, aromas made visible — occasionally twinkling in soft focus, as if seen through a Vaseline-greased lens.

Tonkatsu may have started out as an imitation of European-style cutlets — thin, flimsy slices of veal and lamb, sautéed in butter and served with a fork and a knife — but Japanese cooks soon owned it, revised it and deviated from the European recipes to develop their own style.

NYU College Republicans cancel gay conservative speaker

Today 16:26 GMT

Until he received a message Monday night letting him know the group decided to cancel based on his affiliation with ACT for America, a conservative organization focused on national security and founded by Brigitte Gabriel.

“The free exchange of ideas is a bedrock principle at NYU, and if students or faculty members invite a speaker to campus, that speaker will be permitted to speak, other than in the rare instances in which there is a threat to public safety,” NYU spokesman John Beckman wrote in statement to Fox News. “It is worth noting that last year, campus groups invited Charles Murray, Gavin McInnes, and Lucian Wintrich, and all of them spoke at NYU.”

Commentary: The lying game

Today 13:38 GMT

"Liar" is a more loaded term, with its connotation that this is someone who lies habitually or even compulsively, and therefore can never really be trusted.

Your average journalist, I suspect, believes that Trump is a liar, and that he lies more often than your average sweaty retail pol. And sure enough, in the weeks that followed Trump's surprise victory in the Electoral College, reporters and editors engaged in a rather fierce debate as to whether it was appropriate to single out specific utterances of the president as lies.

Dow’s climb to dizzying heights diminishes the significance of 1,000-point milestones

Today 16:26 GMT

However, each clamber higher for the Dow will make its 1,000-point achievements far less momentous—at least arithmetically speaking.

As the table below shows, each 1,000-point move requires an increasingly smaller percentage push for the Dow and suggests that the completion of such moves shouldn’t be treated as monumental occasions:. Looking forward, if the Dow picks up another 1,000 points to reach 24,000, that will represent a 4.3% advance from the 23,000 mark, followed, if all goes to plan, by a 4.2% return to reach 25,000 and a 4% further march to 26,000.

Brexit talks: UK must prepare to leave without deal, say ex-ministers

Today 13:38 GMT

However, the EU27’s negotiating guidelines for the two-year Brexit talks say discussion of the “framework” of a future relationship can only take place in phase two of the talks, once “sufficient progress” has been made on the separation phase and particularly the UK’s exit bill.

The UK will inevitably leave the EU without a deal and businesses should start preparing for trade on World Trade Organisation terms, the former cabinet minister Owen Paterson has said.

A woman's dog died, and doctors say her heart literally broke

She is the kind of person who takes “things more to heart than a lot of people,” she said, and she figures this tendency means her heart will break again, though maybe not so literally.

Soon she was being airlifted to a hospital in Houston, where physicians were preparing to receive a patient exhibiting the classic signs of a heart attack.

Against sex

Today 13:38 GMT

What no one seems willing to admit, however, is that part of the problem is also our all-consuming cultural obsession with "sex."

I do think that we are approaching a point at which people are getting increasingly fed up with sex, wishing for a broader, more inclusive understanding of what it means to be human than "someone who, with permission or having given it, wants to interact in a variety of ways with other people's private parts."

The collective religious experience of #MeToo

Today 13:38 GMT

Triggered by the flood of provocations and sordid revelations that mark the Trump era, liberals have recoiled in the direction of pious proclamations, setting off to convert the country and the world to the Gospel of Egalitarianism.

#MeToo is something different — something at once emotionally exhibitionist and voyeuristic, a public ritual with an outwardly religious form but lacking any spiritually or theologically sustaining core.

Houston-area "Tourniquet Killer" scheduled to be executed

Today 16:26 GMT

A man who became known as Houston's "Tourniquet Killer" because of his signature murder technique on four female victims was set for execution Wednesday evening.

"If he had his preference, I think he would prefer to live out his life on death row rather than be executed," Knox Nunnally, one of Shore's attorneys, said. Besides Estrada, Shore confessed to the slayings of Laurie Tremblay, 15, found beside a trash bin outside a Houston restaurant in 1986; Diana Rebollar, 9, abducted while walking to a neighborhood grocery store in 1994; and Dana Sanchez, 16, who disappeared in 1995 while hitchhiking to her boyfriend's home in Houston.
