1976 After 39 days of “crackling…maudlin...and bewildering testimony, the most sensational trial of the television era” was over. In February 1974, Patty Hearst, 19, granddaughter of media mogul William Randolph Hearst, had been kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army. That April, she was caught on tape participating in a bank robbery. Her defense argued coercion and duress; the jury disagreed, finding her guilty on all counts. Her sentence of 35 years put to rest any notion that “her famous name and odd crime” could help her in court. In the end, President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence after 22 months served. 1964As sexual attitudes softened, a “disquieting revolution” began to take shape on college campuses, Newsweek reported. Where mothers once wondered what to tell their daughters about sex, “Today…

Men wearing goatskin masks, hairy jackets and dozens of copper bells take part in a pre-Lenten festival, the Skyrian Carnival, on March 9. The costume signifies the “Old Man”—a character who dances, clangs and sometimes brawls through town—accompanied by a male partner dressed as a bride.…

shut up and deal

FOR DONALD TRUMP, THE POLITICS OF TRADE always seemed straightforward.Ripping pretty much any other country with which the U.S. runs a trade deficit—and China, trade villain No. 1, in particular—was a way to win hearts and minds of voters throughout the industrial Midwest in 2016. When it turned out that those voters, in states such as Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, would unexpectedly give him the presidency, Trump’s instincts—his gut—were ratified. “I won,” he once told his friend Tom Barrack, a prominent investor and Trump campaign fund-raiser, “because of trade.”What Trump didn’t understand that night, according to friends, associates and people who work for him today in his administration, was how complicated the issue of trade is. As a businessman and self-described deal-maker of unparalleled excellence, he felt the imposition…

grande ego

HOWARD SCHULTZ AND HIS potential presidential campaign are fizzling as fast as the ill-fated Maple Macchiato.With widespread ridicule of his rollout and favorability ratings in the low single digits, the former Starbucks chairman, like the failed coffeehouse concoction, is chock-full of conflicting ingredients.First, Schultz is offering one of the oldest propositions in politics: A superstar CEO will “run America like a business.” That pitch propelled Donald Trump and offered rationales for other business leaders who have sought the presidency, including Ross Perot, Carly Fiorina and Herman Cain.Second, Schultz presents himself as a kinder, gentler capitalist who treats his baristas as partners, not proletarians, provides health care and promotes social concerns such as conversations about race.However, he’s running not as a longtime liberal Democrat but as a “centrist independent.” Schultz…

WIRED A digital health industry has spent billions on developing new tools and projects in recent years. To improve patient care, they are trying to create an ecosystem of apps and devices that link hospitals, ANDRES RUBIANO FIRST GOT THE NEWS THAT HIS BLOOD PRESSURE WAS too high in the 1990s, when he was in his late 30s. It didn’t come as a complete surprise—his father had had chronic hypertension at an early age too. His doctor prescribed medication and encouraged him to get more exercise and cut down on the amount of salt in his diet. Rubiano, though, wasn’t very diligent about following this regimen. Each time he returned for a checkup, doctors gave him the same advice and Rubiano disregarded it.Four years ago, something caused Rubiano to…
