From Norway to Haiti, Trump’s Comments Stir Fresh Outrage

Mr. Ogrim cautioned that journalists should not overreact to Mr. Trump’s remarks. “These are somewhat small matters and the frenzy with which they are reported does not perhaps always help the media in their just fight with a president who is doing his best to undermine them and their importance,” he said.Gudmund Hernes, a former minister of education and minister of health from the Labor Party, wrote sarcastically on Twitter: “Erna worked: Norwegians are welcome.” (Ms. Solberg is from the Conservative Party.)This was not the first time Mr. Trump had rankled Scandinavians with off-the-cuff remarks. In February, he puzzled and alarmed Swedes when, in a speech discussing refugee policies in Europe, he suggested that a terrorist attack had occurred “last night in Sweden.” No such thing had taken place.“Does Trump know that Norway is neighbors with what-happened-last-night-in-Sweden?” a Swedish social worker, Ulf Fogelstrom, quipped on Twitter.Mr. Trump was then rebuked on Friday by the United Nations human rights office, which described his comments as dangerous racism that opened the door to humanity’s worst characteristics.“These are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States,” Rupert Colville, a spokesman for Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, told reporters in Geneva. “Sorry, there is no other word one can use but racist.”Norway (population 5.2 million) and Haiti (population 10.9 million) are both relatively small countries, but their situations could hardly be more different. Norway is one of the world’s wealthiest nations, with rich oil reserves, a mighty sovereign wealth fund and a gross domestic product per capita that is about 23 percent higher than that of the United States […]

Male Models Say Mario Testino and Bruce Weber Sexually Exploited Them

In accounts going back to the mid-1990s, 13 male assistants and models who have worked with the photographer Mario Testino, a favorite of the English royal family and Vogue, told The Times that he subjected them to sexual advances that in some cases included groping and masturbation.Representatives for both photographers said they were dismayed and surprised by the allegations.“I’m completely shocked and saddened by the outrageous claims being made against me, which I absolutely deny,” Mr. Weber said in a statement from his lawyer.Lavely & Singer, a law firm that represents Mr. Testino, challenged the characters and credibility of people who complained of harassment, and also wrote that it had spoken to several former employees who were “shocked by the allegations” and that those employees “could not confirm any of the claims.”Those who said they were on the receiving end of unwanted attention felt the choice was clear: acquiesce and be rewarded with lucrative ad campaign work, or reject the approach and risk hobbling, or destroying, a career. Many said they still would not speak publicly.PhotoThe photographer Bruce Weber at a fashion event in Milan in 2011.Credit Evan Sung for The New York TimesIn fashion, young men are particularly vulnerable to exploitation. Male models are “the least respected and most disposable,” said the former model Trish Goff.“It was general practice to give a model a heads-up about a specific photographer who we knew had a certain reputation,” said Gene Kogan of his time working as an agent at Next Management between 1996 and 2002.But, he said, “If you said you were not going to work with someone like Bruce Weber or Mario Testino, you might as well just pack it in and go work in another industry.”Continue reading the main storyAs in Hollywood, allegations of harassment and assault have been aired periodically over the decades with little lasting effect. From agents to stylists to fashion brands, the system has traditionally seemed more invested in preserving its image of perfection and glamour than in recognizing its bad actors.Regular revelations of abuse of female models — as far back as a “60 Minutes” investigation of modeling agencies in Paris in 1988 — faded away. Agents accused of raping young models in their charge continued to work […]

Trump Administration Takes Step That Could Threaten Marijuana Legalization Movement

But the move seemed certain to increase the confusion surrounding whether it is legal to sell, buy or possess marijuana in the United States. Federal law has long prohibited those activities, and in 2013, after voters in Colorado and Washington State voted to decriminalize marijuana for recreational use, the Justice Department deliberated about how to handle the resulting disconnect between state and federal law.Ultimately, the Obama administration decided not to sue such states, and the Justice Department issued a policy memo instructing federal prosecutors to de-prioritize marijuana-related prosecutions in those states — except in certain cases, such as when there were sales to children, gang-related activity, or diversions of the product to states where it remained entirely illegal.That guidance was known as the “Cole memo” after the then-deputy attorney general who issued it, James Cole.The federal government’s hands-off approach allowed a new industry to flourish in states that had decided to legalize and regulate marijuana use and sales for recreational and medical use. In Colorado, one of the first states to broadly legalize the drug for adult use, marijuana sales now top $1 billion each year and thousands of people work in the industry, in jobs ranging from “bud trimmers” to marijuana tour guides for out-of-state visitors.Where Marijuana Is Legal6 states have legalized recreational and medical marijuana, and allow the sale of recreational marijuana.2 states and D.C. have legalized both uses but do not currently allow sales.*21 states allow medical use only.WAMENDMTORMNNYMIMAPAOHNVILCACOARAZNMFLAKHIDCMDDENJCTVTNHRI6 states have legalized recreational and medical marijuana, and allow the sale of recreational marijuana.2 states and D.C.

Job Growth Signals Robust Economy, With Gain of 228,000

A White House statement on the jobs data pointed to both accomplishment and anticipation, with congressional Republicans on the verge of passing a $1.5 trillion tax cut plan that President Trump could sign into law this month.Declaring that “President Trump’s bold economic vision continues to pay off,” it added, “With tax reform moving quickly through Congress, confidence in the strength of our economy remains high and families around the country are reaping the benefits.”Economists expect the bill to provide at least a modest lift to the economy — but they aren’t sure that’s a good idea. With unemployment so low and the economy fundamentally healthy, a tax cut could lead the economy to overheat, pushing up inflation and forcing policymakers at the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates faster than planned.“It’s a very poorly timed fiscal stimulus,” said Joseph Song, an economist at Bank of America. “It kind of raises the risk of a boom-bust cycle.”Room to Run?Job growth has gradually slowed since 2014, when the American economy added close to three million jobs. But hiring remains remarkably steady. Employers are on track to add about two million jobs in 2017, a solid pace eight years into an economic expansion. The hurricanes that hit Texas and Florida in September led to a brief slowdown, but hiring quickly bounced back.Economists aren’t sure how long the growth can continue. The unemployment rate is approaching the level many economists consider “full employment” — the point at which essentially everyone who wants a job can find one. […]
