افتراضي Impeachment, China, Black Holes: Your Weekend Briefing

(Want to get this briefing by email? Here’s the sign-up.)
It’s been quite a week. We’ll break it down for you, and take a look ahead.


1. For the fourth time in American history, an impeachment inquiry into a sitting president has begun. This time, the focus is whether President Trump courted foreign interference to hurt a leading political rival.
A whistle-blower complaint and phone call transcript show Mr. Trump repeatedly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate people and issues of political concern to Mr. Trump, including former Vice President Joe Biden. Mr. Trump and President Volodymyr Zelensky met this week at the United Nations, above.


3. Presidents and prime ministers gathered at the United Nations General Assembly this past week, but it was a 16-year-old young woman who stood out.
Greta Thunberg, above, excoriated world leaders for their “business-as-usualâ€‌ approach to climate change. Her speech came asamajor U.N. report warned that climate change is severely straining the world’s oceans, creating profound risks for coastal cities and food supplies.
Also out of the General Assembly: The presidents of the United States and Iran offered contradictory narratives about why the two countries did not meet.


4. In other international news:
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, above, was dealt a stunning blow when Britain’s highest court ruled that he had acted unlawfully when he suspended Parliament in his unyielding push for Brexit. Mr. Johnson could face a possible no-confidence vote next week.


In Israel, a week after an election appeared to jeopardize his career, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was tapped to form a government. Israelis are wondering how it happened.
And Afghans began voting to choose a president in one of the most violent periods in the country’s history, with the Taliban threatening all-out war on the democratic process.


5. With tanks, missiles and enormous flower arrangements, the People’s Republic of China is preparing to celebrate its 70th birthday and its leader, Xi Jinping.
On Tuesday, the country’s National Day, Mr. Xi will preside over a military parade through Tiananmen Square, choreographed with such pomp and pageantry that its main focus has become highlighting Mr. Xi’s power in the face of rising challenges.
The celebrations come as a counternarrative persists in Hong Kong, the semiautonomous territory. Tens of thousands of protesters there took to the streets over the weekend, above, to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement.


6. Congratulations, you survived Black Hole Week.
That’s NASA talk, of course, complete with its own hashtag. The space agency described various black holes behaving badly: eating stars, or whole gangs of them; burping energy from the centers of galaxies; banging together in universe-shaking events.
Here are three cosmic events you may have missed and that fortunately missed you.
Elon Musk, the founder and chief executive of SpaceX, also gave an update on Starship, above, his next major rocket. Here’s the latest.


7. When the Washington Mystics, above, and Connecticut Sun meet in Game 1 of the W.N.B.A. championships on Sunday, they’ll do so with a common goal — a championship — and a power source to get there: unabashed confidence.


“They’re similar to us in that they’d been together for a few years, so they have that experience of knowing each other on and off the court which I think adds to it,â€‌ Mystics point guard Natasha Cloud said. Tip off is at 3 p.m. Eastern. We’ll have live updates at nytimes.com.
In this weekend’s N.F.L. matchups, the Cowboys face the Saints, the Bills confront their biggest fear and the Browns try to get back on track. Here is a look at N.F.L. Week 4.


8. “I didn’t know I had a talent, I didn’t know I had a palate.â€‌
When Cecilia Chiang opened the Mandarin in San Francisco, she changed the way Americans regarded Chinese cuisine. In lieu of thickly sauced stir-fries served in pseudo-exotic settings, Ms. Chiang built her reputation exalting regional Chinese cuisine. She made that work seem effortless. It wasn’t.
At 99, the great restaurateur spoke to our California restaurant critic about her life, then and now.
Our Food team is starting a new monthly column. David Tanis will provide you with simple, cohesive menus for dinner parties — all mouthwatering, none difficult. Here’s his first.


9. The gang is back together.
In “The Irishman,â€‌ Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s monumental, elegiac tale of violence, betrayal, memory and loss, our film critic writes. “To watch this movie, especially in its long, graceful final movement, is to feel a circle closing,â€‌ he writes.
We also reviewed “Judy,â€‌ in which Renأ©e Zellweger plays Judy Garland near the end of her life, when she grasped onto one more comeback and one last chance. “Mostly,â€‌ our critic writes, “â€کJudy’ offers the familiar spectacle of one star playing another.â€‌
And “Saturday Night Liveâ€‌ returned last night with Woody Harrelson as its host. Here’s what you missed.


10. And finally, check out one of our Best Weekend Reads.
We spoke to Eddie Murphy on his return to standup, looked at how the anti-vaccine movement took hold in the U.S., and visited with 18 families around the world as they prepared their weeknight dinners.
