What You Said About …NEXT GENERATION LEADERS TIME’s 2019 class of Next Generation Leaders was a reminder to “never underestimate the power of children and youth mobilizing for change,” wrote Erion Veliaj, the mayor of Tirana, Albania, referring to climate activist Greta Thunberg, featured on one of the May 27 covers. “I LOVE THIS,” Kerry Washington said, tweeting the second cover, featuring her fellow actor Tessa Thompson. And Twitter user @joicereis_ wrote that Brazilian Congressman David Miranda is “a breath of fresh air” who “represent[s] our best” amid the ascent of “far-right politicians and fascism.” For those on the list, the issue came as both a bright spot and a weighty responsibility: “I hope I can live up to the title,” tweeted honoree Ramla Ali, the first Muslim woman to…

the point person on impeachment

THE HARDEST JOB IN WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW belongs to a straight-talking New Yorker in his 70s. And it’s not President Donald Trump.As Trump ramps up his defiance of House Democratic investigations, Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler, 71, is a key player in the fight. Nadler’s committee issued the first subpoena for special counsel Robert Mueller’s full, unredacted report into Russian interference in the 2016 election, then voted to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt when he didn’t deliver it. The committee will likely do the same with former White House counsel Don McGahn, who failed to appear for testimony on May 21. Nadler’s committee may even subpoena Mueller himself.But Nadler faces a dilemma. Liberals in the House Democratic caucus want an impeachment inquiry into Trump. Taking that first step,…

how does the sat’s new adversity score actually work?

SAT SCORES WILL SOON MEASURE MORE than just a teenager’s math and verbal skills: the College Board, the nonprofit organization that oversees the admissions test, announced May 16 that it’s prepping the broad rollout of a new “adversity score” program intended to provide universities with a more complete picture of an applicant’s background.The score, officially called the Environmental Context Dashboard, is calculated using 15 factors addressing a student’s home life, community and school system, including local crime and poverty rates, according to the College Board. Together, they add up to an overall disadvantage level, scored out of 100, that universities will be able to view as a supplement to the exam; much of the information it considers was already available to admissions officers but not in this format. Students will…

DiedI.m. Pei Modernist MasterMOST PEOPLE WILL REMEMBER I.M. PEI FOR HIS CULTURAL and commercial works, like the glass pyramid at the Louvre in Paris and the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong. But in my city, Chicago, it is residential work that remains his lasting contribution—and that helped secure his legacy as one of the most influential architects of the 20th century.In the late 1950s, Pei, who died May 16 at 102, undertook the redevelopment of a portion of the Hyde Park neighborhood in collaboration with Chicago architect Harry Weese. This was one of the largest urban-renewal projects of its time, and as with many others, discrimination and displacement are an intractable part of its story. But Pei and Weese’s design is notable for its context-sensitive approach, corresponding with…

the worsening trade war exposes a problem that is made in the usa

FOR NEARLY A CENTURY, THE ST. PIERRE MANUFACTURING Corp. has made steel products like horseshoes, tire chains and wire ropes in a facility in Worcester, Mass. Yet, despite the strong economy, St. Pierre, like many other American manufacturers, is struggling. Its problems stem from President Donald Trump’s tariffs on Chinese-made goods. The ongoing trade war “makes it a heck of a lot harder to compete,” says Peter St. Pierre, the company’s vice president of finance and operations and a grandson of founder Henry St. Pierre.Trump imposed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum more than a year ago, later adding them on an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. On May 10, as negotiations on a wider deal with China faltered, he said some tariffs would increase to 25% from…
