He parred the tricky 305-yard 10th, a hole he's never comfortable on; made a 10-foot putt for birdie on the 572-yard par-five 11th; then saved par with seven-foot putts on the next two holes before hitting his tee shot on No. 14 into the left-side bunker. He was deep in the bunker, 49 feet from the hole with very little green to work with. Bogey seemed likely.

"This is the first film like this that I've ever seen," she said. "And today is my birthday. I'm not going to say how old I am, but in all of my years, I've never seen anything like this. I have never seen any black superheroes… any black characters that are this positive. It was off the map, it really was."

Seven Israelis were arrested on Sunday in what the police call "Case 4000," a new investigation in which members of Netanyahu's innermost circle are suspected of intervening with regulators to help the Bezeq group, an Israeli communications giant then run by a close friend of the prime minister, in exchange for favorable coverage of Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, on a news portal owned by the company.

Apart from Twitter spats, Kopitar happens to have put together a six-week run that's been one of the most consistent facets of the Kings in 2018. He has points in 16 of 19 games in the calendar year. For the season, Kopitar's longest point-less streak is three games, and that happened once, over the Christmas break. It's that day-in, day-out quality that has become watercooler talk for the Kings' brass.

In the second year of title sponsorship of the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, the luxury car brand's general manager was hoping (and probably praying) for Tiger Woods to compete. Woods' participation at the event and the accompanying television viewership assured of millions, if not tens of millions, of additional impressions for Genesis and its winged logo. For Woods and for Genesis, qualifying for the final two 18-hole rounds would have resulted in lots more exposure. On Sunday, Bubba Watson won the tournament for the third time, stretching back to a time before Genesis was the sponsor. "Yes, the number who can identify Genesis is relatively small," Raphael said.

For Best Supporting Actress nominee Allison Janney (I, Tonya) of Dayton, Ohio, a fortuitous opportunity to train under the direction of Paul Newman as a young drama student was a significant early development in her unique career. The mentorship Janney received from Newman and his actress wife, Joanne Woodward, during this time sparked a desire in the couple to advocate for her in spots over the ensuing years. Allison Janney: It was two brothers growing up in the suburbs of Dayton, Ohio, in a house built by my great grandfather in 1911. I don’t think I had a date until I was in college because I went to such a small school. I had a pretty happy childhood in Dayton, Ohio.

The artist Nancy Baker Cahill’s new augmented reality (AR) app, 4thWall, allows viewers to see several of her distinctive, shard-like, explosive forms superimposed on any place they point their smartphone cameras. Credit: Michele AsselinCahill hit on the idea of creating the app while exploring the expressive potential of new virtual reality (VR) rendering tools like Google’s Tilt Brush, which allow you to paint and draw in 3D. There are now various AR galleries and exhibits focused on AR experiences, but, for the most part, opportunities for showcasing AR works are still emergent and in flux. Within this fluid new ecosystem, Cahill’s move to create her own iOS app for viewing her works is the equivalent of self-publishing a book. Mustatea: How does the 4thWall app engage with AR as a distinct medium, rather than just translating your works on paper into digital form?

The scientific method isn’t overwhelming, intimidating or elitist. Here are three vital rules of science in plain English:1. Science calls it a ‘confirmation bias.’ In its ideal form, science keeps our need-to-be-right in check with getting at the truth. This means an established scientific theory is simply a theory that hasn't been disproven – yet! But put it this way: if scientific theories were boxers, who’d be more credible?

(CNN) Director Martin McDonagh's bleak drama about a mother's quest for answers about her daughter's murder struck a nerve with British Academy of Film and Television Arts voters. "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" won five statues at Sunday's BAFTA film awards, including best film and best British film. The movie also picked up best original screenplay and individual honors for Frances McDormand (best leading actress) and Sam Rockwell (best supporting actor). McDonagh missed out on best director, losing to Guillermo del Toro for his work on "Shape of Water." The BAFTA Awards can be a hit-or-miss indicator of what may come at next month's Academy Awards.

Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson said the legislation “adversely affects freedom of speech,” and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel compared it to a form of Holocaust denial. Tensions flared anew on Saturday when Mr. Netanyahu and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki of Poland both attended a security conference in Munich. Mr. Netanyahu responded quickly, calling the comment “outrageous” in a statement on Saturday. On Tuesday, the Israeli police recommended that Mr. Netanyahu be charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Mr. Morawiecki became prime minister in December and announced a sweeping cabinet reshuffle last month.

With the Chrome update, the company hopes to come out ahead by lessening the temptation of web users to install more comprehensive ad-blocking software. If they don’t, Google will demonstrate its leverage not by simply removing offending ads from a noncompliant site, but by disabling all of its ads. Such ads, which can be blocked by Adblock Plus, lay outside the scope of the recommendations made by the Coalition for Better Ads. Publishers and advertisers have responded warmly to the speedy load times made possible by the Accelerated Mobile Pages program, but its adoption has also been rewarded more directly. So far, what has been good for users has tended to be good for Google, and the other way around.
