Raqqa, China, Los Angeles Dodgers: Your Wednesday Briefing

• Best of late-night TV. Hey, it’s David Letterman! • Quotation of the day. “As women leaders in politics, in a state that postures itself as a leader in justice and equality, you might assume our experience has been different. It has not.” — Legislators, senior legislative aides and lobbyists, in a letter denouncing what they described as pervasive sexual misconduct by powerful men working in and with the California Legislature. Back Story As the U.S. national anthem played, they bowed their heads and prayed they wouldn’t be shot. It was this week in 1968 that two African-American sprinters raised gloved fists during a medal presentation at the Summer Olympics in Mexico City, in a denunciation of racial discrimination.

North Korea Skaters Seek Olympic Bid, and Diplomats Cheer

The easiest route is for athletes from North Korea to qualify.From mid-June through mid-August, the North Korean pair of Ms. Ryom, 18, and Mr. Kim, 25, trained in Montreal, refining their attempt to claim one of five Olympic spots available here at this week’s Nebelhorn Trophy competition.Continue reading the main storyThe skaters, their coach and a North Korean skating official spoke frequently about the Olympics, said Bruno Marcotte, a prominent French Canadian coach who worked with the pair.“All the time they would ask me: ‘Do you think we have a chance to qualify? Are we good enough? What do we need to qualify?’” Mr. Marcotte said of the pair, who aspire to become one of the world’s top 10 teams.“They didn’t want to talk about politics,” said Mr. Marcotte, who is also here assisting the North Koreans. “It was all about sport and being the first ones in the Olympics and breaking barriers and doing their best.”It is a widely held feeling among South Korean politicians and Olympic officials, as well as some international athletes, that the Games would be safer with North Korea’s participation, lessening security concerns and perhaps spurring slow ticket sales.In that view, Kim Jong-un, the unpredictable North Korean leader, would be less likely to act provocatively if athletes from his country were competing in the Olympics, alongside those of China, North Korea’s benefactor.PhotoFlags, including those of North Korea and South Korea, hang over a rink in Oberstdorf.Credit Jun Michael Park for The New York Times“It’s kind of an insurance policy to have them there,” said Ted Ligety, a two-time gold medalist in Alpine skiing from the United States.Of course, there is no way to predict what the political situation will be on the Korean Peninsula in four months, when the Olympics take place about 40 miles from the demilitarized zone that separates North and South.Continue reading the main storyAnd there is no guarantee that North Korea will participate […]

Astros Make Return to Houston, Looking to Help in Hurricane’s Wake

It is always difficult, logistically and emotionally, for a sports team to decide when and how to return to the field after a catastrophe in its community.PhotoIn the stands for the Astros’ return to Minute Maid Park on Saturday.Credit Troy Taormina/USA Today Sports, via ReutersThe Astros, who have the best record in the American League, knew their park had come through the storm relatively unscathed. Still, they had the option of playing this weekend’s three games in Florida, using Tampa Bay’s park as their home field, just as they did for a series against the Texas Rangers last week.Then Houston’s mayor, Sylvester Turner, urged the Astros to return home, in the hope that they would provide a sliver of normalcy here.“These games are not going to be us overcoming the storm,” Ryan said. “They are going to be the beginning of what’s going to be a long rebuild and an acknowledgment that we will move on.”The Astros got approval from Major League Baseball and from the Wilpon family, the Mets’ owners, to postpone Friday’s game and create the Saturday doubleheader instead, allowing the Houston players a day to spend time with loved ones they had not seen since the hurricane and to visit evacuation centers and emergency medical workers.“Our guys had been distracted,” Ryan said. “They didn’t know about their houses, their families, their neighborhoods.”Ryan said the Astros would not have played the games if all parties — city leaders, the Mets and M.L.B. — had not agreed to the plan.Continue reading the main story“It’s that fine line of stopping everything you’re doing as a community and a society, but for how long when not all of us can be in a boat rescuing people,” he said. “So everyone has to look and say, ‘How can I do my part?’”PhotoFans adding donations to a food bank’s collection box before the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader in Houston.Credit Mandel Ngan/Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesThe Astros decided that their part was to host games and contribute to the relief effort. They planned to donate 5,000 tickets to each game this weekend for the mayor’s office to distribute to first responders, volunteers and evacuees. They also gave evacuees 10,000 T-shirts that were originally meant to be given away as a promotion on Saturday.If ticket holders for this weekend’s games cannot attend, Ryan said, they can call the Astros’ ticket office to arrange refunds or credit or exchanges for future games […]

Beyond The Bad Press: Rio de Janeiro’s Urban Forests

Over the next few weeks, the first Olympic Games ever to be hosted in South America will be taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In the lead up to the global event, Rio has been getting extensive media attention, most of it not being the best of publicity. Inadequate and incomplete infrastructure, corruption, and the Zika virus are just some of the issues that have been getting the spotlight. Rio’s environmental debacles have also been getting a lot of global attention: a contaminated bay and beaches where athletes from around the world are coming to compete in is particularly worrying. The city lacks a basic sewage system and the Bay of Guanabara was supposed to be cleaned up before the start of the games (but never was). Yet despite all the negative media and attitudes, Rio’s Olympic Opening Ceremony provided a peak into one of the many reasons the Cidade Maravilhosa (or Marvelous City) gets its name and an impressive environmental trait that not many other cities can claim: Rio de Janeiro has the world’s largest urban forest. In what was another first for the Olympic Games, the Opening Ceremony highlighted the host country’s rich cultural and environmental diversity. It made an extraordinary statement as it brought climate change and human’s responsibility to the forefront of the audience’s attention, as well as the role forests and trees play in combating a warmer world. The ceremony even went even further by giving each country participating in the games a seed of a different native tree species that would then be planted in Rio’s Athlete’s Park (totaling 207 different species of trees).
