Now, in the final stretch of its first season, “Party of Five” is taking its story to Mexico. I started the year thinking it’d be really interesting, if for some reason Lucia is really lacking a mother and she goes by herself to Mexico. And then, once we told the third-to-last episode where Valentina runs away, we realized: Why wouldn’t all of them go? There’s this idea that if only we can be united all our problems will be over, and that’s not true. The way we leave at the end of the season suggests a whole new story in the second season.

Before All-Star forward Anthony Davis joined the Lakers during a trade last summer, he “didn’t know much about” Alex Caruso. He blocked a shot by Lonzo Ball that went off the Pelicans’ guard’s back and out of bounds. Thirty-six seconds later, Caruso stole the ball from Ball and scored while being fouled by JJ Redick. Caruso made the free throw for a three-point play that gave the Lakers a five-point lead and the momentum they needed to hold off the Pelicans. “Yeah, I’m a big energy guy, as anybody who has seen us play can attest to,” Caruso said after Tuesday night’s game.

“Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,” whose “Great Pretender” episode is set to air Sunday night, isn’t the only new TV series thinking through the ways that music lovers bend songs to the particulars of their lives. Like the secret singers around Zoey, Rob uses music to express the complicated feelings she can’t quite articulate herself. “High Fidelity” proudly represents the self-appointed expert, whereas “Zoey’s” strikes a more “populist” tone, as the show’s creator, Austin Winsberg, described it to me the other day. “High Fidelity,” in contrast, features countless shots of Rob walking her Brooklyn neighborhood with giant headphones clamped on her ears, lost inside her private universe. Zoë Kravitz stars as record-store owner Rob is Hulu’s “High Fidelity” (Phillip Caruso / Hulu)AdvertisementEven so, there’s a subtle shift in the rock snobbery depicted in this “High Fidelity” — mostly in scenes where some hapless customer walks into the record store and requests the wrong thing — as compared to the book and movie.

It’s possible this could be an instance of community spread of COVID-19, which would be the first time this has happened in the United States,” the CDC said in a statement. “Community spread means spread of an illness for which the source of infection is unknown. That raises concern that the virus is spreading in the United States, creating a challenge for public health officials, experts say. “Ultimately, we expect we will see coronavirus spread in this country,” said Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. But public health leaders have repeatedly reminded residents that the health risk from the novel coronavirus to the general public remains low.

Polls consistently show high voter satisfaction with ranked-choice voting, and it’s no surprise. By allowing voters to express their support for more than one candidate, ranked-choice voting makes more votes count. Maine first adopted ranked-choice voting in 2016 for its statewide and congressional primaries and elections, and it was popular enough that the Legislature expanded it in 2019 to include presidential elections. After the first round of ballot counting, Mr. Poliquin held a small lead over Mr. Golden, 46.3 percent to 45.6 percent. In contrast to Mr. Poliquin, who had publicly dismissed the independent candidates, Mr. Golden reached out to them, and thus won over their supporters.
