This shakshuka dish is the ideal weekend morning recipe. (It also makes excellent #brunch food.) It involves eggs baked in spiced tomato sauce. With feta. And lots of pita bread. Watch this video to see how it’s made, and visit the link in our profile to get @clarkbar's #shakshuka#recipe from @nytcooking.@scottloitsch and @vaughn made this video, and @sarahjampel styled the dsh. #🍳
The special counsel, Robert Mueller, has submitted his full report on President Trump and Russian interference in the 2016 election to Attorney General William Barr, who now must decide how much of it to release. Barr told congressional leaders Friday that he might brief them within days on the special counsel’s findings. “I may be in a position to advise you of the special counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend,” he wrote in a letter to the leadership of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees. The delivery of the report brings an apparent close to an investigation that has consumed the U.S. and cast a shadow over @realdonaldtrump for nearly 2 years. This is a developing story.

In the most racially diverse U.S. House of Representatives in history, a record number of top Democratic aides are men and women of color. These aides are influencing major policy decisions, shaping messages and leading the staffs of nearly half a dozen committees. Staff members Tasia Jackson, Latrice Powell and Taylor Griffin are seen here taking photos of their fellow staffers. (Swipe left to see the aides who are having their picture taken.) The implications of having diverse aides are significant. Top aides have the ear of members and are also responsible for hiring decisions. They often go on to jobs in the executive branch or run for Congress themselves. This year’s diversity expansion didn’t happen on its own. @repmcgovern of Massachusetts expanded a diversity initiative established last Congress by the Democratic Caucus to the entire House when the Democrats took control.

Stuyvesant High School, one of New York’s — and America’s — elite public schools, caused a wrenching discussion about race and inequality on Monday when it announced that only 7 black students had been admitted, out of 895 spots. Sarai Pridgen, a Stuyvesant sophomore who’s in the bottom left of this photo, said she felt sickened by the statistic — yet unsurprised. Sarai is one of 29 black students out of about 3,300 teenagers at Stuyvesant. “It wasn’t shock that I felt, it was the same wave of disappointment I feel every time I look at the demographics of this school.” Students gain entry into the school by acing a single exam. #nytimes reporter Eliza Shapiro sat down with 9 black and Hispanic students from Stuyvesant, who said the sobering statistics have energized them to be even more vocal in the discussion regarding the city’s elite schools, and to make Stuyvesant a more welcoming place for future students like them. Visit the link in our profile to read more from their conversation. @theotherchrislee shot these photos of #Stuyvesant students (clockwise from top left) Eugene Thomas, Yajaira Rodriguez, William Lohier and Sarai.
In Opinion | Tanitoluwa Adewumi is the newly crowned New York State chess champion for kindergarten through third grade. His family fled Nigeria in 2017, fearing attacks by Boko Haram terrorists. They arrived in New York City a bit more than a year ago, and a pastor helped steer them to a homeless shelter. Tani, as he is known, then began attending the local elementary school, P.S. 116, which has a part-time #chess teacher who taught Tani how to play. “I want to be the youngest grandmaster,” 8-year-old Tani told @NickKristof. “The U.S. is a dream country,” Tani’s father told Nick. “Thank God I live in the greatest city in the world, which is New York, New York.” @theotherchrislee shot this photo.

The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, now in its 35th year, draws thousands of ranch workers and Western enthusiasts to the small city of Elko, Nevada. The poets come not only to practice a tradition born of work and regional identity, but also to expand the idea of an ever-changing West. Here, odes to tools, references to John Wayne and laments about bad weather thump through performances in the @WesternFolklife Center and the Elko Convention Center. In addition to poetry, the weeklong event also includes musical performances and dance gatherings. Celebrate #WorldPoetryDay by listening to these poems, and by visiting the link in our profile to read more about this year’s gathering. @waubi_saubi made these clips while attending the event last month.
The Women’s Timber Corps, playfully called “lumberjills,” were Rosie the Riveter’s counterparts across the Atlantic during World War II. The group was an elite part of England’s civilian defense efforts and it harvested timber for telegraph poles, rails for D-Day splashdowns and the pit props that defended vital British coal mines. Of the 6,000 workers who toiled in the lumber fields at the peak of the corps’ staffing, a good number were “city bred” — former shop assistants, dressmakers and factory workers. In an article published in 1944, #nytimes assured readers, “It has been found more often than not that the girl whose previous knowledge of tree life was often limited to the telegraph post can swing an axe just as efficiently as a farmer’s daughter.” A photographer shot this photo for The New York Times in 1942.

A makeshift levee saved the town of Hamburg, Iowa, from Missouri River floodwaters in 2011, and so residents began a desperate fight to keep it. But money needed to fix the levee never came. Now, after overflowing rivers wrecked large portions of Nebraska and Iowa over the last week, much of Hamburg is under water. The swollen Missouri River invaded houses and turned streets into canals. Residents are wondering if homes will be salvageable and if they will receive federal help to save the town from future floods. Some speak with pride about enduring nature’s whims: “We all know, living between two rivers, that something like this can happen,” said Heather Garcia, referring to the Nishnabotna and Missouri Rivers. “But it’s our home. And we just keep going.” John Hayes, another resident, was more pessimistic: “I have a gut, bad feeling that this might be the end of this little town.” @hlswift shot this photo. Visit the link in our profile to read more from Mitch Smith, who was in Hamburg this week speaking with residents and covering the flood.
In the male-dominated real estate universe, women sometimes discover that a hard hat is a hard hat to wear. On being a woman in the industry, Leslie Baltes, the president of Carter, Milchman & Frank, an industrial supplier, said: “I’ve made it my business to know what I’m doing. My male contemporaries in sales don’t feel the obligation to know as much because they’re not going to be tested as much.” Women in the business describe being locked out of deals, being condescended to and having to prove their skills. Joanne Kaufman interviewed 7 women who have endured slights in workplaces dominated by men, but who thrived nonetheless and now run their own corners of the #realestate world.

A prayer mat was seen among flowers and other tributes today at the remains of a makeshift memorial for the people killed in last Friday’s terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand. As the first victims of the mosque shootings were laid to rest on Wednesday, Azaam Afaan explained what it has been like to wait so long for the burials to begin: “It’s like you’re short of breath. Now we can breathe freely. They’re going to the place they’re supposed to be.” But as of Wednesday night some families were still waiting for their loved ones’ bodies to be returned to them and buried. @adamjdean shot this photo near Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch.

Regina Hall is getting more attention and critical acclaim for her roles. She’s at the heart of @showtime’s Wall Street satire “Black Monday,” will co-star in the film comedy “Little,” with @issarae, in April, and in a “Shaft” sequel, in June. But it's not as though she's any more talented than she was 5 years ago — she's always been this good, and now Hollywood is paying closer attention. “It’s weird,” @morereginahall said. “I’ve always had steady work, but I guess there are lists in Hollywood. I was on the top of one before; now I’m on the bottom of a more difficult one.” @nytmag “Talk” columnist David Marchese recently sat down with Regina to discuss the 2 Hollywoods, spirituality and success.

These “juhyo,” or ice or snow monsters, are naturally formed by ice and snow, encasing conifer trees spread across Japan’s northern mountains. They’re threatened by climate change. Researchers have tracked a steady deterioration of the juhyo — both in the acreage they cover and the length of the season in which they can be seen — because of warming temperatures that melt the snow earlier and at higher elevations. The trees are also being ravaged by moths that gobble up their needles and a species of bark beetles that have been killing otherwise healthy trees in the last 5 years. Fumitaka Yanagisawa, a professor of geochemistry who studies the #juhyo at Yamagata University, said he’s worried about greenhouse effects. “By the end of the century, the juhyo will disappear from earth.” @jameswhitlowdelano shot these photos in Yamagata Prefecture.
