Good evening. Here’s the latest.
1. Sanders vs. Warren, Buttigieg vs. O’Rourke, and the Mod Squad vs. the liberals: The second round of Democratic debates is underway. .
On the topic of health care, Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren embraced Medicare for All. The rest of the field, like Pete Buttigieg and Gov. Steve Bullock, took more moderate positions.
The debate then turned to immigration and whether crossing the border should be decriminalized. Ms. Warren and Beto O’Rourke argued for fully decriminalizing border crossing, while Mr. Buttigieg was more cautious.
Of moderate Democrats, Ms. Warren said: “I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for.”

More 2020 news: A new California law requires President Trump to release his tax returns to get on the primary ballot. It is likely to face legal challenges.
2. President Trump was back on the offensive on a range of topics.
The president took credit for weakening the Chinese economy and suggested Beijing would get a better deal if a Democrat were to win the 2020 election, even as his negotiators sat down for dinner in Shanghai.
He also hailed the contributions of African-Americans to the building of the nation during a ceremony celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Jamestown Settlement in Virginia. His comments stood in sharp contrast to his recent attacks on critics of color.

3. More than 900 migrant children have been taken from their parents since President Trump officially ended separations over a year ago, the A.C.L.U. said in a court filing.
Migrant families continue to be separated at the southern border in substantial numbers for reasons as minor as a parent not changing a baby’s diaper or having a traffic ticket , the civil rights group said.
The Times Magazine also profiled a young woman named Fanny, who was in middle school when Immigration and Customs Enforcement came for her mother, leaving her to navigate the struggles of adolescence by herself. She is pictured above at the home of a family friend in Atlanta last year.
4. Break out the data breach playbook: Set up fraud alerts, freeze your credit score, and get in touch with your bank.
Those are some of the things you may need to do a day after Capital One said a hacker compromised the information of more than 100 million people in the U.S. and Canada — one of the largest-ever thefts of data from a bank. Paige Thompson is accused of stealing 140,000 Social Security numbers and 80,000 bank account numbers.

In other business news: Apple said that its net income had fallen nearly 13 percent and that its revenue growth had slowed to 1 percent in the latest quarter, showing persistent signs of weakness.
5. Need extra time on a college-entrance exam? It helps to have money.
In the nation’s richest ZIP codes, the share of high school students with a federal disability designation is double the national average, according to a Times analysis of federal data.
A diagnosis of anxiety or attention deficit disorder can help struggling students improve their test scores, but the necessary doctor visits can cost thousands of dollars. That raises the question of whether well-off families are taking advantage of the system.
Separately, ProPublica and The Wall Street Journal report that wealthy families in Illinois are giving up custody of their children to help them qualify for financial aid for college.
6. U.S. sports officials “knowingly concealed” the sexual abuse of gymnasts by a team doctor, according to an 18-month Senate investigation that described “alarming and dysfunctional systems” that allowed emotional, physical and sexual abuse to persist.
Two lawmakers will introduce a bipartisan bill on Tuesday that would hold the Olympic committee and national sports governing bodies to more stringent legal accountability for failing to protect athletes. Above, the gymnast Aly Raisman, center, called for more oversight in April.
In other sports news, Caster Semenya will not run in the world championships after a court ruled that she cannot compete in the 800 meters race without undergoing therapy to lower her naturally elevated testosterone levels. And Jill Ellis, who coached the U.S. women’s soccer team to consecutive World Cup titles, is stepping down.
7. As a media circus and fans descended on Stockholm for the start of the rapper ASAP Rocky’s assault trial, another special guest arrived: President Trump’s special envoy for hostage affairs.
“The President asked me to come here and support these American citizens,” Robert O’Brien said. “I’ll be here until they come home.”
The rapper, pictured above in December, and two of his friends pleaded not guilty on Tuesday, in a case that spurred Mr. Trump to call Sweden’s prime minister to see if he could intervene.
8. This man, above right, is racing to stop killer robots.
Toby Walsh, one of Australia’s leading experts on artificial intelligence, believes that autonomous weapons — capable of acting without human oversight — are closer than we think.
He’s trying to have the international community pass a pre-emptive ban on the weapons.
9. “What’s being loosed is the tendency to let her rip.”
Toni Tunney, above, a 71-year-old retired clinical psychologist, is one of a chorus of women in their 60s, 70s and beyond who are uncorking grievances in the #MeToo era. Spurred on by younger generations, the movement is proving infectious, writes our Styles reporter.
“#MeToo has lent some older women permission to speak out in a way that they hadn’t before,” one writer said. “They can release the hurts they’ve lived with all these years in ways that are vindicating.”
10. And finally, a once-in-a-generation party.
When Sebastian Modak arrived in Vevey, Switzerland, our 52 Places traveler thought he was hallucinating: Flamboyant costumes, a show that rivals the most extravagant Olympic opening ceremony and wine everywhere. But no — it was the Fête Des Vignerons, a celebration that happens only roughly every 20 years.
At its heart, the once-in-a-generation party, held since 1797, is a winegrowers’ festival. But it’s much more: This year, organizers built a temporary 20,000-capacity stadium in the center of town that’s big enough to contain the entire population of Vevey.
