nytimes: Just over a century ago there was 1

Just over a century ago there was 1 woman in the United States Congress. Now there are 131. The 2018 midterm elections ushered in a change in representation; for the first time, more than 100 women serve in the House of Representatives — out of 435 seats — and members of color were elected in more states than ever before. Many of these women, spanning generations, serve as firsts in Congress: the first women representing their states, the first Muslim women, the first openly gay member of the Senate, the first woman Speaker of the House — the list goes on. These portraits of the women of the 116th Congress are a testament to what power looks like in 2019 — and the possibilities of what it may look like in the years to come. and shot these portraits of , , , , and Visit the link in our profile for the full project.

nytimes: Grilled cheese lovers look no further. Introducing the

Grilled cheese lovers look no further. Introducing the kimchi grilled cheese , by for Here, and cheese come together for a twist on the classic . Mildly flavored mozzarella is an especially good choice in this recipe because it lets the kimchi shine, but you could also add 1/4 cup of grated Cheddar, Monterey Jack or even pepper Jack for more kick. Smearing mayonnaise on the bread, instead of butter, might sound weird but it won’t burn as quickly as butter, allowing the cheese ample time to melt, and the bread to toast up to golden perfection. shot this photo of the sandwich and styled the dish.

nytimes: Adam Moss, whose visual savvy and ear for

Adam Moss, whose visual savvy and ear for the zeitgeist made him one of the leading magazine editors of his generation, said on Tuesday that he would step down from , his canvas for the past 15 years. The departure of Adam, the longest-serving editor in chief in the title’s half-century history, is another signal moment for an industry that has been transformed by the digital revolution. Under Adam’s tenure, the magazine collected 40 National Magazine Awards; his art critic, Jerry Saltz, won a Pulitzer Prize; and he published some of the most memorable magazine covers since midcentury Esquire, including the striking image of the 35 women who accused the comedian Bill Cosby of assault. “I’ve been going full throttle for 40 years; I want to see what my life is like with less ambition,” he said. “I’m older than the staff. I’m older than the readers. I just want to do something new.” took this photo of Adam. Visit the link in our profile to see more.

nytimes: The Nissan #Figaro, tiny and cartoonish, just might

The Nissan , tiny and cartoonish, just might be the most adorable thing on 4 wheels. To an American living in , it would appear to be a highly popular model that was made recently. But the Figaro was built for 1991, and there were never large numbers anywhere. never even exported it from Japan. Yet here it is in Britain, in the thousands, an oddball little convertible with an ardent following. “The quirkiness, there’s something very British about it, isn’t there?” said Colin Bullock, a harbormaster in London. Owners join Figaro clubs, drive in rallies, give their cars names and often buy more than one per family. “Cars have lost their personality,” said Nic Caraccio, a devoted owner. “They all look the same. Not the Fig.” shot this photo of a Figaro at a car show in Surrey, near London. Swipe left to see more, and visit the link in our profile for the full story.

nytimes: China is aggressively seeking investments and contracts around

China is aggressively seeking investments and contracts around the world, and perhaps nowhere is this more visible than Africa, where Chinese companies have won contracts to build dams, roads, stadiums, airports and railways. In country after country, governments have borrowed heavily from China to pay for these projects. The Trump administration has accused China of engaging in predatory lending aimed at trapping countries in debt. In response, the U.S. has announced an effort to help American businesses compete. “We’re streamlining international development and finance programs, giving foreign nations a just and transparent alternative to China’s debt-trap diplomacy,” Mike said in October. But the threat posed by China to American interests is debatable, and it is unclear how far the U.S. should — or can — go to compete. took this photo of Chinese and Ugandan workers in the Karuma Hydroelectric Power Station project, which is under construction on the Nile in northern Uganda.

nytimes: Female #ranchers are reclaiming their connection to land.

Female are reclaiming their connection to land. For decades, family and ranches were handed down to men. Now, as mechanization and technology transform the ranching industry, making the job more about business, animal husbandry and the , more ranches are being led by women — with new ideas about ecology and the land. Today, women are leading the trend of sustainable ranching and raising grass-fed breeds of cattle in humane ways. In Kremmling, Colorado, Caitlyn Taussig helps run her family’s ranch with a cadre of cowgirls, including her mother and sister. They only really rely on men on the days when they have to brand the Angus Cross cattle. “We just sort of treat each other differently,” she said. “There’s less ego.” shot this photo of Caitlyn mending fences.

nytimes: Welcome to the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, India

Welcome to the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, India's biggest contemporary art show. India has very few public art venues, so the organizers of the biennale, which runs until March 29, strove to create an event that would appeal to everyone — from untutored day laborers to veteran curators. Many of the works are interactive, and on Mondays, entry to the biennale is free, an attempt to draw in local laborers who would balk at paying the entry fee of 100 rupees, about $1.40. ’s curator, Anita Dube, is a sculptor and art historian. She said the title of the event, “Possibilities for a Non-Alienated Life,” reflects her effort to build connections between communities, both in Kochi, India, and beyond. “In spite of our hyper-connectivity, we are more and more alienated from each other,” she said. “We need to think of ways that people can be together via culture.” shot this photo of visitors making ephemeral paintings in Song Dong’s interactive installation “Water Temple.” Visit the link in our profile to see more.

nytimes: Wakanda for #Oscar? When it comes to award

Wakanda for ? When it comes to award season, the director Ryan Coogler has 2 ideas on the subject. “You don’t ever want to get too comfortable sitting in rooms and listening to people telling you how great the work is.” At the same time, Ryan is aware that if scores major Oscar nominations, it could open the door for more directors of color. So, to what extent should Ryan play the game? True to form, Ryan is less concerned with his own chances and would rather take advantage of this award season to tout the contributions of his crew, many of whom would also make history if they’re nominated and win. “I work in an art form where I have a lot of help,” Ryan said. “I’ve got hundreds of people helping bring this film to life, and a lot of people on the street don’t know that.” shot this photo of with some of his “Black Panther” department heads in Beverly Hills, : from left, the cinematographer , the costume designer and the production designer Hannah Beachler.
