N ot 20 minutes into The Vow , HBO's enthralling-then-ultimately-gasbaggy docuseries, things started to feel concerningly familiar to me.

Edmondson's caree
The first planets discovered outside our solar system were strange, unfamiliar worlds. These were giants like Jupiter, hotter than Venus, tearing around their suns inside the orbit of Mercury. Astronomers have since discovered planets where 10,000 mile-per-hour winds whip up metallic storm clouds that rain molten iron. The diversity of extremes is captivating, and also somewhat beside the point.

Editor's Note: In 1988, a teacher most commonly had 15 years of experience. In recent years, that number is closer to just three years leading a classroom.

Adam Maida hope . That is, at least, the dominant feeling in many global capitals as they adjust to the reality that Joe Biden will soon be president of the United States and, more to the point, that Donald Trump will not be: At least for now, NATO is safe; the transatlantic alliance is safe; global free trade is safe—the world as we knew it is safe.

Presidents who leave office in the modern era recede from public life, often happily so. They write memoirs, plan their library, and pick up new hobbies . As a courtesy, they give the sitting president space to govern without catapulting themselves into the national conversation. Donald Trump will be different: He isn't going anywhere. Even after his defeat, the soon-to-be-former president, who f

Donald Trump leaves the White House briefing room on November 5. (Carlos Barria / The Atlantic) "We're going to win so much that you're going to be sick and tired," Donald Trump promised in 2016.

In doing so, they expos

Paleontologists have described for the first time an almost complete skeleton of a juvenile Plateosaurus and discovered that it looked very similar to its parents even at a young age.

I'm just a reader, but as times goes I feel more interested on this kind of disciplines. Some of them are even yoga/meditation-based, others have been developed by myself based on a very vulgar knowledge I've got about the human mind.

T wo themes seem to define the 2020 election results we've seen so far—and also build on a decade or more of political developments: the depolarization of race and the polarization of place. Democrats have historically won about 90 percent of the Black vote and more than 65 percent of the Latino vote. But initial returns suggest that Joe Biden might have lost ground with nonwhite voters.
