But her repartee with Social House’s Michael Foster is warmly appealing. She opens with a verse about vicious indecision, and Foster replies with eyelashes fluttering: “Even though you ain’t mine, I promise the way we fight make me/honestly feel like we just in love.” The third verse, by Social House’s Charles Anderson, is a missed opportunity — a shrug rather than a three’s-a-crowd provocation.

Wireless charging, through the phone: These earbuds' coolest trick is that their contactless charge-enabled case works with Samsung's new Wireless PowerShare charging on the back of the Galaxy S10 phones. Drop them on your phone, and they'll charge up, at the equivalent of 5W (a rough estimate of a fully dead case to fully charged would be an hour).

No monolithic porterhouse here; diversity is the mission, from beef blackened all along the perimeter and pork loin like a pocket prayer book to bronzed linguiça (sausage) swollen with garlic, chicken breast trussed in bacon and dense little chicken hearts.
BRAND ::SPORTS SCOTTYShows like “The Beverly Hillbillies” and “Green Acres” disappeared, giving way to more topical, urban-based sitcoms. The writer and producer Norman Lear, who created shows like “All in the Family,” “Maude” and the original “One Day at a Time,” pioneered a new kind of sitcom, in which humor was used as a bridge to address serious issues like divorce and sexual assault. A spokesman for Islamic Jihad, Dawoud Shehab, said that Egyptian officials had been making contact with the militant groups in Gaza throughout the night to restore the Egyptian-brokered truce that ended the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas.
Bird, Lime and Spin's approach of "it's better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission" comes directly from the Silicon Valley playbook. It's what Uber and Lyft did as they rolled out their ride-hailing services before being slapped with cease and desist orders for not first getting permits. It's what Airbnb did with its short-term home rental service, which got it temporarily banned in New York, Berlin and other cities, by allowing landlords to post multiple apartments on the site. BEIJING — President Trump says he is optimistic that a landmark trade deal with China is close. Chinese officials are not so sure.
