  • Work of Art: One egg is enough/an oeuf

    In France, your breakfast waiter invariably will leave you hankering for more. You might just leave the table hungry. And why is that so?

    Glad you asked. The custom is supposed to be that the omelet you order at a French cafe will contain only one egg, not two, or even three, as is common in some American restaurants.

    RIO DE JANEIRO — The World Cup’s best dribblers — Lionel Messi and Arjen Robben — face off when Argentina and Netherlands meet in the semifinals.

    It was a Thursday morning in June and the New Mexico Finance Authority was convening at 9 a.m. in Santa Fe to take up a number of items, including two key ones for Las Vegas.

    The authority had already signed off on $4 million in financing for the city’s Bradner Reservoir project. The question for board members on this morning was what terms should be offered on that money. The original proposal was to make 60 percent of that funding a grant and the remaining 40 percent a low-interest loan. The city was pushing for better terms.
