Sometimes that is too late and the children have gone to bed with- out a proper meal for days.” South Africa has used load shedding, or rolling blackouts, to conserve electricity since 2008, but the current outages are the worst anyone can remember. In April alone, 1,054 gigawatt-hours of power got cut nationwide, compared with 2,521 gigawatt- hours cut for all of 2021, accord- ing to data compiled by Bloom- berg News. The government has blamed the additional blackouts on a recent wildcat strike by workers at Eskom, the state utility compa- ny, but the problems with South Africa’s power grid run much deeper — rooted in an aging fleet of coal-fired power plants, a lack of maintenance, corruption, theft and vandalism. The strike has been resolved, but cash-strapped Eskom has warned that a backlog of repair work at the power stations could take weeks to clear, while the system could face more breakdowns. In Cape Town, water service in some areas cannot be maintained because outages prevent pumps from filling reservoirs that supply the region. “Heavy machinery, such as water pumps, sewage pump stations, electricity trans- formers, and substations, are just not made to take this kind of abuse,” the city warned in a statement this week. “The con- DIGEST RUSSIA activists and freeze their bank PHIL NOBLE/REUTERS lower chamber to rubber-stamp speaker said, after protesters accounts. his agenda.

Or who don’t want to bring a child into the world with a potential abuser? In Texas, women can no longer choose a safe abortion as a means of self-defense. What are we going to do, tell them to get a .22? Much has also been made of the Sen- ate’s recent agreement to close the “boy- friend loophole” on gun restrictions. Pre- viously, under federal law, domestic abusers could be prohibited, via the na- tional instant criminal background check system, from having guns only in cases where they have been married to, lived with or had a child with the victim; that has now been widened to include those who have been in a serious rela- tionship with the target. But in Texas, which allows private gun owners to sell to others without background checks, another enormous loophole remains open. It’s no stretch to expect that even more pregnant women will be assaulted and killed by partners now that abortion is all but banned here. Texas lags other states in mental health resources and has faced funding shortages for domes- tic violence prevention. If women are to be forced to carry pregnancies — if Texas truly wants to “protect life” — so much more must be done about the issues of maternal homicide and interpersonal violence. I left the gun show without a .22 rifle. Sad to say, but as a woman who values access to safe reproductive choices, my best form of defense is probably leaving my home state altogether.

On the other, it was a great excuse to sell shares. Now when people asked why Musk was divesting, instead of saying “because I want to have something to fall back on if Tesla underperforms,” he could say “because I am a wild and crazy guy who likes to troll libs on Twitter.” Now, in a rational world, “I love trolling more than my company” should probably make you less bullish on the future of Tesla, but here on Earth Prime, the lib-trolling is one reason his most avid fans love him, and the company he runs. This barely caused a hiccup in the stock. In April, Musk sold another $8.4 billion as he raised funds for the Ultimate Troll: buying Twitter itself. Between then and now, the stock market has swooned, and the value of Tesla has declined by more than a quarter. In other words, if Musk had held onto those shares, he’d have about $6 billion worth of stock. In- stead, he got $8.4 billion worth of cash. Even if he gives $1 billion of that to Twitter, he’s still more than a billion dollars to the good. Musk couldn’t have known he was selling close to the peak, of course; the timing was fortuitous. But it’s none- theless excellent reason for a judge to force Musk to go through with it. Otherwise, his good fortune will be- come legend and encourage more frivolous deals. Things are weird enough already in the market. We don’t need to give anyone encouragement to make them worse.

After Feldstein took a break from the show because she tested positive for the coronavi- rus, she announced in June that her last performance would be Sept. 25. The production con- firmed the news on Twitter and added that actress Jane Lynch, who played Mrs. Brice, would also be exiting then. Feldstein then shared in a statement posted to Instagram Sunday night that she would be leaving “Funny Girl” at the end of July — two months earlier than the initially announced date. She attributed her early departure — a highly unusual Broadway oc- currence — to the production deciding to “take the show in a different direction.” “I will never forget this experi- ence and from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every single person who came to the

For RHYMES WITH ORANGE instance, a player might LIO HILARY PRICE MARK TRAIL JULES RIVERA say, “We should have been HAGAR THE HORRIBLE at game” after his partner BLONDIE MARK TATULLI MOTHER GOOSE & GRIMM MIKE PETERS played at two spades, mak- ing four when two finesses CHRIS BROWNE BALDO HECTOR CANTU & CARLOS CASTELLANOS worked. DEAN YOUNG & JOHN MARSHALL SALLY FORTH FRANCESCO MARCIULIANO & JIM KEEFE A common misstatement I hear is, “There was no way to make it” after a contract fails. At today’s four hearts, South won the first spade with the ace, led the jack of trumps to West’s ace, won the next spade and drew trumps. He took dummy’s high diamonds to pitch his spade loser and a club, ruffed dummy’s last spade and led a low club. East won and led another club, and West took the jack and ace. Down one. “No way to make that one,” South shrugged. “I had nine winners and no more.” South must draw only two rounds of trumps, then take dummy’s high diamonds, pitching two clubs. He ruffs dummy’s last diamond and exits with a spade, and West is end-played: If he leads a club, South’s king scores; if West leads the 13th spade, South gets his 10th trick with a ruff-sluff. DAILY QUESTION You hold: ♠ Q J 10 7 ♥ A 4 ♦ 10 8 5 ♣ A Q J 4 Your partner opens one heart, you bid one spade and he rebids two hearts. What do you say? ANSWER: Since partner promises six or more hearts in this auction, you could raise to four hearts. An option is to force with a bid of three clubs, intending to pass if partner next bids 3NT. Incidentally, it would have been fine to respond two clubs; then you could have bid an economical two spades over two hearts by partner. — Frank Stewart ©2022, TRIBUNE CONTENT AGENCY, LLC.

You are confident, organized and hardworking. You are a natural leader. This is a year of learning and teaching for you, which will require more solitude to focus on what is necessary. Moon Alert: After 5 a.m. today, there are no restrictions to shopping or making important decisions. The Moon is in Capricorn. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19). This is an excellent day to talk to bosses and people in power, because they will listen to you. Your requests are reasonable; furthermore, they are practical and doable. Ask for what you want. FRAZZ JEF MALLETT CANDORVILLE DARRIN BELL TAURUS GARFIELD JIM DAVIS BARNEY AND CLYDE (APRIL 20-MAY 20). DUSTIN Today you are confident STEVE KELLEY & JEFF PARKER THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN making plans or discussing foreign interests or matters connected with publishing and the media.

Today Venus is in your sign dancing nicely with Saturn, which makes this an excellent day to discuss any problems you might have with relationships. When it comes to financial issues, you’ll be conservative. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22). Interactions with others, friends and groups will be lively today.

You’ll be effective when dealing with others today, whether on an individual basis or with a group. You will naturally take on a leadership role, especially at work.
