  • There’s a lot to be excited about in #Chennai, capital of the state of Tamil Nadu in South #India. Call it youthful energy — the history of what we know as present-day Chennai extends back merely to the 1600s, compared to ancient cities like #Delhi, which have existed for thousands of years. During a 4-day trip in September, @nytimestravel columnist Lucas Peterson found jaw-droppingly good food, beautiful houses of worship and a fantastic day trip. And, as always with the Frugal Traveler series, he set out with the goal to get the best value for your money. Visit the link in our profile to read about how to navigate Chennai on a tight budget. In Chennai, Priyadarshini Ravichandran shot these photos of celebrations for a movie, men dressed as gods, steaming hot dosas and the Arulmigu Kapaleeswarar Temple.

  • The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was photographed outside the Montgomery, Alabama, courthouse by #nytimes photographer George Tames on March 20, 1956. Dr. King was on trial for organizing an illegal bus boycott of the Montgomery city bus lines. In an article published in The New York Times the next day, Dr. King said, "Frankly, I am for immediate integration. Segregation is evil and as a minster I cannot condone evil."

  • “Welcome Home, Jayme” signs were posted around Barron, Wisconsin last week after the discovery of Jayme Closs, a 13-year-old girl who police say was held captive for nearly 3 months by Jake T. Patterson, a 21-year-old, in Gordon, Wisconsin. Jake has gone from local anonymity in Gordon to national infamy, accused of not only kidnapping Jayme, but also killing her parents, James and Denise Closs. The awful crime has shattered Gordon’s sense of safety. “In a little town where everyone knows everyone’s business, how could we not know that’s who he was?” said Shawn Germann, a FedEx driver. Jake was arrested last week, after Jayme escaped from under a twin-size bed inside his home. He was charged with her kidnapping and the shooting deaths of her parents. @timgruber shot this photo in Barron. Visit the link in our profile to read more.

  • Yalitza Aparicio, the star of @alfonsocuaron’s “Roma,” just completed her teaching degree and was living in Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca when she auditioned for the lead role. Now, @yalitzaapariciomtz is being heralded as a role model for women and Indigenous people in #Mexico, and buzzed about by critics for her performance. In Mexico, @romacuaron is more than a personal project by a famous director. It’s started a national conversation about inequality, the treatment of domestic workers and who is welcome on the #redcarpet in a country where #Indigenous women are rarely seen in magazines, much less at Hollywood awards shows. But Yalitza isn’t satisfied to be an exception; she wants to use her emerging star power to create a more inclusive future for her country. “It shouldn’t matter what you’re into, how you look — you can achieve whatever you aspire to,” she said. @nataliamantini shot this photo of Yalitza.

  • Feeling ambitious this weekend? Make #galbijjim, Korean short-rib stew with root vegetables. This #recipe is a home cook’s take on the #stew the chef Peter Cho serves at @hanoakpdx, the beautiful homestyle #Korean restaurant in Portland, Oregon. It’s fragrant and sweet, with deep caramelized flavors that come in part from roasting the meat and vegetables separately before combining them in the braising liquid.The addition of greens at the end gives the dish an exciting brightness, a zip that many galbijjims lack. Visit the link in our profile to get the recipe and read @nytmag’s story on the secret ingredient that makes this galbijjim perfect. Paola & Murray shot this photo for @nytcooking, @maggie_ruggiero styled the dish and @bartoshesky styled the props. #🍖

  • In @nytmag | In a handful of elite genetics labs around the world, scientists have begun analyzing ancient #DNA — which can now be extracted from skeletal remains that are thousands of years old, like the skull above. Their goal? To ask, and try to answer, even more fundamental questions about the human past. In the past few years, this burgeoning field of “paleogenomics” has begun to offer surprising revisions to the story of humanity, like the finding that humans and Neanderthals had actually interbred. But at the same time, this research has generated significant controversy among some of the archaeologists, anthropologists and other academics who have collaborated with geneticists on this work. @davidmauricesmith shot this photo of a skull found at a prehistoric burial site near Teouma Bay, Vanuatu.

  • United States Senators held images of furloughed federal workers on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. As the government shutdown continues, the #Trump administration is reinterpreting longstanding rules to open the federal government piece by piece, forcing thousands of furloughed workers to report to work without pay, many of them in sectors that could minimize damage to the president’s base. In past shutdowns, only workers deemed “essential” to protecting life and property — such as Secret Service agents — were allowed to work. But the budget office is now focused on Justice Department guidance, issued by previous administrations, that would broaden who is considered essential, using lesser known exceptions to call back thousands of employees to perform duties like preparing taxes or opening mail. @gdemczuk shot this photo in D.C.

  • In @nytmag | Harry Reid, the former Senate majority leader, has a few words for Washington. He sat down with Mark Leibovich, the chief national correspondent for @nytmag, to talk about President #Trump, Senator Chuck #Schumer and why he doesn’t regret ending the filibuster for judicial appointments in 2013. “They can say what they want,” he told Mark. “We had over 100 judges that we couldn’t get approved, so I had no choice. Either #Obama’s presidency would be a joke or Obama’s presidency would be one of fruition.” @danwintersphoto shot this portrait of Harry. Visit the link in our profile to read more.

  • Brenda Garcia reunited with her 7-year-old son, K.G.G., at Dulles Airport outside Washington, D.C. in June of 2018, 34 days after they were separated by officials for illegally crossing the U.S. southern border. The federal government has reported that nearly 3,000 children were forcibly separated from their parents under last year’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. But according to a government report released on Thursday, the Trump administration most likely separated thousands more children from their parents during an influx that began in 2017. Thus, the total number of children separated from a parent or guardian by immigration authorities is “unknown,” because of the lack of a coordinated formal tracking system between the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the arm of Health and Human Services that takes in the children, and the Department of Homeland Security, which separated them from their parents. @ryanchristopherjones shot this photo of the family.

  • These Jersey #cows at Rivendale Farms in Bulger, Pennsylvania wear Fitbit-like collars that monitor their movement, eating and rumination patterns. They are milked not by humans, but by robotic machines, and a nearby greenhouse, filled with salad-bowl crops like kale, arugula and baby carrots, is automated. Farming in America is increasingly a high-tech endeavor. Yet that technology is mainly tailored for big industrial farms. Rivendale Farms, which has just completed its first year of full operations, offers a glimpse of technology coming available for smaller farms. “They eat when they want, lie down when they want and feed when they want,” said Christine Grady, general manager of Rivendale. “And a happier cow produces more milk and better milk.” @ross_man_tle shot this photo at the farm.

  • Here’s Taylor Stanley, right, rehearsing “Apollo” with @tilerpeck, shot by @sashafoto. To spend some quality time with Taylor Stanley is to realize that this @nycballet principal dancer — bold and forthright onstage — is as sensitive as they come. When he dances, he soars; in life, he swerves into self-doubt. Yet Taylor, has become one of the company’s most valued principals. He’s a bridge between the staid, mostly white traditional ballet world and a new, more open one. But it’s not easy being a bridge. Taylor is a ballet dancer, yet he’s curious about the experiences he could have with other dance forms. Is City Ballet even the right fit, he wonders? Now, he has another reason to question himself and his abilities. When the curtain rises on the first ballet of the first night of the winter season, he will be center stage in a brand-new role: Apollo, which is one of the most difficult male roles in the repertory.

  • Pizza can be a great divider in New York. In fact, one of the easiest ways to get into an argument is to name a “best pizza in the city.” But at the same time, #pizza is one of the city’s great uniters. There is no culinary experience that New Yorkers share more widely and more unanimously than the slice joint. The price has changed over the decades, but the scene and staging remain much the same. Although it’s hard to pinpoint when pizza was first sold by the slice, slice joints around the city turned pizza from an Italian food in New York City into a New York City food — a meal shared across neighborhoods, ethnicities and age groups. Swipe left to see photos from the #NewYorkCity pizza scene in 1971, 1993 and 1984, shot by Patrick A. Burns, Ed Quinn and Larry C. Morris.
