Downton Abbey had a pulling in $31 million during its domestic debut weekend. This was the biggest opening ever for its distributor, Focus Features. The film, a continuation of the beloved PBS/ITV series that ended in 2016, brought together much of the original cast, including Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Allen Leech, Hugh Bonneville, and Laura Carmichael, and opened in the U.K. last week. In this iteration, the King and Queen come to Downton Abbey, and the upstairs and downstairs have very different ways of dealing with the visit. Coming in second place was Ad Astra , starring Brad Pitt, which brought in $19.2 million, with Sylvester Stallone's Rambo: Last Blood a close third with $19 million.

We have our first stunning 2019 Emmys upset. Fleabag 's Phoebe Waller-Bridge just won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in a massive upset over Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Louis-Dreyfus was widely considered to be the race's front-runner, as she had never before lost the award for playing Selina Meyer on HBO's Veep , which concluded its final season earlier this year. Had Louis-Dreyfus won for Veep 's final season, she would have set the new record for most acting Emmys by a performer in history.

1. Ukraine's Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko denied that President Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, during a July phone call. "I know what the conversation was about, and I think there was no pressure," Prystaiko said during an interview with Ukrainian television station Hromadske that aired Saturday. "There was talk, conversations are different, leaders have the right to discuss any problems that exist. This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on a lot of questions, including those requiring serious answers." Still, others are concerned about how the accusations will affect Ukraine's relationship with the U.S. "It's a diplomatic disaster

Can American democracy survive the predations of today's GOP? This week's about President Trump trying to force Ukraine to turn over dirt on Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden are just the latest in a seemingly endless series of affronts to the values of representative democracy perpetrated by the Republican Party and its allies. Indeed, how to change the GOP or contain its gathering menace to the U.S. political order might be the most important challenge of this generation. But those hoping a Republican shellacking next year will force a democracy-saving reckoning from inside the party are wrong. Only Democrats can save American democracy. In a , prominent political scientists Steven Levitsky and Daneill Ziblatt (authors of the i.

is a Los Angeles mortician, the author of two best-sellers, and host of the YouTube series . Her new book is . by Jessica Mitford (1963). Written almost 60 years ago, this book remains the bible on the secretive and excessive practices of the American funeral industry. As Mitford once said, "You may not be able to change the world, but at least you can embarrass the guilty.". by Karla FC Holloway (2002). Death (and violent death, at that) is inextricably intertwined with the African-American experience. Holloway's book explores the funeral traditions that arose to meet the needs of the black community, which so often was turned away from white-owned funeral homes. by Jason De León (2015).

Over the next decade, automation and artificial intelligence could throw 54 million Americans out of work. Here's everything you need to know:. Why is automation a threat? Rapid technological advances are enabling machines to perform a growing number of tasks traditionally done by humans. Law firms now use artificial intelligence (AI) — ­sophisticated computer programs that can learn from ­experience — to conduct contract analysis, hunt for client conflicts, and even craft litigation strategy. McDon­ald's is replacing drive-thru workers with order-taking AI, and cashiers with self-checkout kiosks. Walmart is automating truck unloading, while Cal­i­for­nia farms are employing robots to harvest lettuce. From 1990 to 2007, robots replaced about.

A version of this story originally appeared in . Used with permission. It was dusk on the opening night of Burning Man, and the makers and misfits were touching up their art projects and orgy dens. Subwoofers oontz-oontzed as topless cyclists draped in glowing LEDs pedaled through the desert. And Paul Romer, a reigning laureate of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, sat on a second-story porch at the center of it all, marveling at a subtlety of the street grid. The roads narrowed as they approached small plazas around the impermanent city. How clever, he thought, this way of funneling pedestrians toward gathering places. And most Burners probably didn't even notice — what with the art projects and orgy dens. "It's just like every.

Iran on Saturday to the United States and Saudi Arabia, shortly after Washington Friday that President Trump had approved a decision to deploy troops to Saudi Arabia following last week's strikes on Saudi oil facilities. Both the U.S. and Saudi Arabia allege that Iran was behind the attacks, but Tehran denies the accusations. While U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper the "modest" deployment would be "defensive in nature," Iran is apparently preparing for alternative scenarios and they seemingly want any country to think twice before launching any sort of military operation. "Be careful and make no mistake," General Hossein Salami, the chief of Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Saturday during a speech. He that his forces are "re.

The United States and El Salvador a "cooperative asylum agreement" Friday in what is seen as another attempt by the Trump administration to curb the flow of migrants from Central America coming into the U.S. Few details about how the agreement will work or when it will go into effect were provided, but acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan the pact "is one significant step forward" and that it will build on what the U.S. has "accomplished already" with neighboring Guatemala, which is trying to implement a "safe third country" agreement with the U.S. signed earlier this summer.

1. President Trump reportedly urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son, reportedly pushing eight times in a single phone call for Zelensky to work with his attorney, Rudy Giuliani. Trump reportedly wanted to probe whether Biden worked to shield from investigation a Ukrainian gas company with ties to his son, Hunter Biden. The phone call was the subject of a whistleblower complaint last month, which Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire reportedly refused to pass on to Congress. The intelligence official who made the complaint reportedly alerted Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, who marked the complaint an "urgent concern." On Friday, Trump denied ha.

If President Trump wants good, honest dirt on his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, let him have it. The occasional positive campaigning pledge aside, this is the stuff of ordinary politicking. It never hurts to remind the public "of what scoundrels your opponents are," Quintus Tullius Cicero, the younger brother of that Cicero, in 64 BC, and to "smear these men at every opportunity with the crimes, sexual scandals, and corruption they have brought on themselves." Negative campaigning is a stubbornly persistent part of politics. But for some baffling reason, Trump can't seem to do it the normal way, as we're seeing anew with this week's scandal apparently involving Hunter Biden and Ukraine. ( from my colleague Peter Web.

The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web:. Detroit has seen strikes before, but not like this one, said Daniel Howes at . At 11:59 p.m. last Sunday, 46,000 members of the United Auto Workers put down their tools at General Motors plants across the country in the union's first walkout since taxpayers rescued the automaker from bankruptcy a decade ago. What makes this different from other big auto strikes is that the usual union-management tension over wages and the workers' share of GM's $8.1 billion 2018 profit has been overshadowed by "a deepening federal criminal investigation into the union's leadership." Breaking protocol, GM — which could lose $100 million a day from the strike — ­publicly.
