In 1954, Ford Motor Company debuted the Thunderbird as a 1955 model. When these cars came out, there were very few Mercedes, Porsches, or any foreign cars on American roads. So the Thunderbird and the Corvette stood out. Elvis, Coca-Cola and the Ford T-Bird—these were emblems of the good-time 1950s. Read more at the link in our bio. Photo by @mattrothphoto for @wsj.⁣⠀

Right in the center of Florida is a metro area that’s home to more than 600,000 people, along with some of the most technologically sophisticated distribution centers in the country.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
In and around the city of Lakeland, you’ll find operations from Amazon, DHL (for Ikea), Walmart , Rooms to Go, Medline and Publix, along with a huge Geico call center, the world’s largest wine-and-spirits distribution warehouse and local factories that produce natural and artificial flavors and, of all things, glitter.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Yet a recent report by the Brookings Institution, based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau and McKinsey & Co., argues that the economic good times for Lakeland could rapidly come to an end. Brookings placed it third on its list of metros that are most at risk of losing jobs because of the very same automation and artificial intelligence that make its factories, warehouses and offices so productive.

At an elevation of about 4,000 feet above sea level, the Cashiers-Highlands plateau is popular among homeowners escaping the summer heat in Florida, Georgia and Louisiana. With canoeing, archery, fishing, hiking and more, exclusive residential developments in the Blue Ridge Mountains feel like summer camp. Here, Craig and Judy Pauly enjoy a scenic overlook of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Read more at the link in our bio. Photo by @mikebelleme for @wsj.⠀

Château de Haltinne, a moated castle in the heart of Belgium, dates to the 1630s, but left its mark in the 20th century with acts of heroism in World War II.⠀
Located in the province of Namur, in French-speaking Wallonia, the castle has some 40 rooms, including 16 bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Most recently, it was the home of André Lamarche, a decorated hero of the Belgian resistance during World War II. During the war, Mr. Lamarche’s father, also known as André, and his family sheltered a Jewish couple from Antwerp, saving them from deportation by the occupying Germans.⠀

The younger Mr. Lamarche took over the castle in 2000 and converted a cozy ground-floor salon into a master bedroom. After his death in 2015 at age 93, the home passed on to his four children, who have now put the roughly 33,000-square-foot castle on market with an asking price of €13.5 million, or about $15.3 million. The 600-acre estate includes a working farm and over 170 acres of forest. Read more at the link in our bio. Photos by @claratumaphotography for @wsj.⠀

President Trump on Friday was set to sign a spending bill that keeps the government open and lay out his plans to divert billions of dollars of funds to build a wall on the southern U.S. border, including the declaration of a national emergency.⠀

The moves stave off a second government shutdown but have ignited a new battle over the legality of his border-spending ambitions. Read more at the link in our bio. Photo by @sandy_huffaker for @wsj.

The Instagram pitch to job seekers in Puerto Rico was tempting. The details even more so: A factory in Sidney, Ohio, was offering full-time employment at $12 an hour, with benefits. ⠀

Tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans have fled the U.S. territory’s struggling economy in recent years. While they mostly concentrate in traditional landing spots like New York and Florida, a number are venturing to the Midwest, where jobs in many places are more plentiful than people.

Far-right lnterior Minister Matteo Salvini strolled through a crowd of supporters in the main square of this southern Abruzzo town. Leaping on stage to campaign for regional elections, Mr. Salvini took aim at prosecutors who have charged him with kidnapping 177 African migrants last year after he refused to let them disembark from a rescue ship.⠀

“They will have to put me on trial for the next 20 years, because I’ll go on blocking the migrants ships,” Mr. Salvini told the cheering crowd last week. “If they think they are scaring somebody, they chose the wrong person.”⠀

In practice, though, Mr. Salvini is working to preserve his immunity against prosecution as a member of Italy’s Senate. His electioneering effort worked. On Sunday, a far-right candidate for governor backed by Mr. Salvini’s League party won the Abruzzo election. Read more at the link in our bio. Photo by @nadiashiracohen for @wsj.⠀

After hundreds of unanswered calls, NASA mission engineers abandoned efforts to revive Opportunity, the space agency’s most durable Mars robot rover, which has been silent since a planetwide dust storm enveloped it in swirling grit. The space agency said the robot, shown looking back over its own tracks in August 2010, hadn’t responded since June. See more photos of its 15-year mission at the link in our bio.

When the world’s tallest building opened here in 2010, a one-bedroom apartment with a view of the Persian Gulf sold for about $800,000. Four years later that apartment would fetch $1 million.⠀

Today, the same apartment at the Burj Khalifa goes for less than $550,000, according to brokers.⠀

The slump chips away at a key pillar of Dubai’s economy—real-estate development—on which Dubai is highly dependent. Lower oil prices, weaker currencies in nearby countries, given that the United Arab Emirates’ currency is pegged to the U.S. dollar, and Middle East political turmoil have all undercut property prices.
