The United States has about 6,000 troops in Iraq. “He had lived in Israel, spoke Russian and Hebrew, and was a great chef,” Mr. Bank added. “He was also deeply committed to helping other people, especially older people.”
If you were helicoptered in while blindfolded, told everything was grown on site and asked to speculate about where in the world you might be, it would be hard to guess. Many dishes have a Mediterranean bent, like shaved rare beef covered in a sauce made from peas, mint and Parmesan. Others seem Californian at their heart, like a startlingly good plate of avocado and housemade cottage cheese, paired with a toasty savory granola.

Professor Song applied instead to Tsinghua University, China’s top science university, to study physics. She went on to study physics at Cornell University but transferred to Carnegie Mellon University, where she received an M.S. in computer science before settling at Berkeley to finally finish her Ph.D. in computer science. By then, she was focused on computer security.

The process of making the work involved many phone calls, with Mr. Cave sketching his ideas and making multiple trips to Apple headquarters in Silicon Valley. “We were practically in a relationship,” Mr. Cave joked.
The tobacco heiress Doris Duke, who inherited a Gilded Age estate as a young woman in 1925 and kept it until her death in 1993, created the N.R.F. in 1968. Since then, the foundation has acquired and restored scores of Colonial-era properties, which it rents to “stewards” who agree to care for them according to foundation standards. The author hit many points about why fewer people are having children, but misses three. First, we are taught from puberty to avoid getting pregnant (or getting someone else pregnant), as if it were a disease. We are assured that we have the rest of our lives ahead of us, until suddenly we are 35 and are just starting to think about children and time is already short.
