“This step is in keeping with America’s best tradition as a land of second chances and a beacon of hope,” Mr. Kerry said in his prepared remarks. “And it will be accompanied by continued financial contributions to the humanitarian effort — not only from the U.S. government, but from the American people. The need is enormous, but we are determined to answer the call.”
The data from these experiments shows that the participants from Yale Law School were significantly more likely than any other group to select efficiency, electing to raise the overall wealth of all players, but they also disregarded the relative disparity that may exist between themselves and others. Elites who were not students at Yale Law School were slightly less fair-minded than the non-elite controls, but this difference was statistically insignificant.
This summer, after a chaotic showdown with Greece’s creditors — the other countries that use the euro, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund — Mr. Tsipras gave in and accepted a new package of budget cuts, tax increases and other economic policy changes in return for another 86 billion euros, or $97.2 billion, in aid necessary to reopen the country’s banks and avert default on its loans.
Both Syriza and New Democracy said in the campaign that they would not challenge the bailout agreement and would push to implement its terms, though a number of smaller parties didn’t share that view. Investors have nonetheless signaled confidence in recent weeks that the worst is over for Greece, with government bonds posting the biggest returns in the euro zone over the past month, and the Athens stock market also rallying.

The chatter faded as Brown’s daughter—a professional musician with tumbling brown curls, a perfect smile, and cowboy boots—performed the star-spangled banner. Everyone held a reverent palm over their hearts. My arms dangled indecisively, as they usually do during these powerful, everyday displays of pride and patriotism. I was born with a U.S. passport, but grew up in the U.K., and continue to grapple with a sense of belonging—or rather, its absence. Maybe it’s wariness of committing myself to an unquestioning loyalty to anything, or maybe it’s a self-defense mechanism. But when I do try to sing along, it feels forced.
“When you have someone who has not saved, really, three things can improve the situation — saving more, spending less or finding a way to earn more,” Krishnaswamy says.
Save more: “There are two best times to start investing,” says James Gambaccini of Acorn Financial Services. “One is now and the other is when you were 20. Sometimes at 50 or 55, it’s too late.”
Mr. Méndez said officials were working on changes before the next arrival, expected on Oct. 4. He said he hoped to double the number of police officers and security guards, and even to bring in the Coast Guard. Groups will be allowed in only with guides and will be limited to the edges of the nesting area.
The Arctic is melting. Summer sea ice that used to cover the Chukchi Sea and the Bering Strait isn’t there, where it used to be. Summer ice coverage in the Arctic hit a record low in 2012; this past March, it registered an all-time winter low. As the ice recedes, something new is popping up in its place: oil rigs and commercial ships. Whatever the debate about climate change looks like in Washington, it’s sadly clear up here.
