The Most Surprisingly Serendipitous Words Of The Day To incline to one side and to the other alternately, as a wheel, top, or other rotating body when not properly balanced.
The telescope flexes slightly as it rotates with respect to the sun, introducing a wobble into its measurements that mimics parallax. Since warmer oceans dissolve less carbon dioxide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels rose and fell in concert with these orbital wobble s, amplifying their effects.
As the president neared the end of his remarks, a young woman beside him began to wobble, on the verge of fainting. Few would hesitate to throw their speaker aside if his knees appear to wobble.
The ability of one tRNA anticodon to recognize two mRNA codons, as in the third base of a tRNA anticodon pairing with any of a variety of bases that occupy the third position of different mRNA codons instead of pairing according to base pairing rules.

He does not paint for very long, perhaps for two and a half hours at a time. It was bulky, perhaps three feet long and almost as high.

Get the latest news and gain access to exclusive updates and offers Ten US political terms to baffle Brits The United States will inaugurate a new president on January 20th when Joe Biden will be sworn in as the forty-sixth person to hold the office.
These are reasonable questions, but the fact is that new words do keep entering the language. To illustrate why this happens, let’s look at a cross-section of the words that have been added to the Collins Dictionary this month.
As you perhaps remember, I worked as an interpreter for three years in the European Parliament. He was, perhaps, a little too smartly dressed for a holidaymaker.
Maybe I’ll finish work early tomorrow and go shopping with you. Evil Doug, if you mail your comment in today like yesterday I might have to call 911 to see if you are okay....
Chef wen, Dickey on ESPN today predicted NO would win the Super Bowl.... Not much to say here, but I wanted to pop in to see if anyone might explain how drills and matches relate to one another.
I wanted “I'm only playing you” for the final theme answer and give full credit to this blog for spelling UKULELE correctly. Not sure what sport the clue is referring to, but it could be tennis or golf (or even basketball).
I think Andrea commented recently that it's easier to add than to remove from phrases, and I can see the challenge. Some good words in the fill, though: e.g. SEMINAL, HARNESS, STYLIZE, and CABALLEROS.
For a while, my daughter lived very near the UN in NYC (where you PASS FLYING COLORS). She was once on the roof deck of her building watching President Bush going into the UN to deliver a speech, and she was chatting with her dad on the phone describing the scene.
Suddenly, she saw a security guard/special agent on top of the neighboring building aiming his sniper gun right at her! Ditto for that SW corner(muses and beg) but total Alexia loved this Rich, smooth and classy Reach special! I wonder if I'D have gotten SINUS so easily (WITH)out yesterday's sine? Two thumbs up.
Write overs in that area included teal Aqueous MULLpossESS HARNESSbabyiWANNABEYOU IONLYWANNABEYOUoptic Charles Weeds ADS Began to hallucinate and thought that SINE was spelled Sine.
To make matters worse there really wasn't much to google in the SW either so there was no hope of getting help. Finally, found water (AQUA) and then some AMISH came along to help and the ordeal was over.
For a man-made reservoir, Lake Powell is one of the most beautiful places in Arizona (we share it with Utah). Though I'd never heard of it until I moved here, it is a very popular vacation getaway, especially if you enjoy houseboats.
Lake Powell is also the setting for the photos on the inside of Pink Floyd's album “Wish You Were Here”. Rather than 'call 911', I long for you to put a little more tension on my marionette strings---to take full control of my eagerness to fulfill your desires.
Figured out that the Atlantic capital must be on the east side, but ACCRA was my last fill. AVOCADO (head slap) finally broke the roadblock.
First: The clue for EDEN is so wrong that it requires a correction by WS IMO. Saxony (“Sachsen”, capital Dresden) is a land-locked state in East Germany that cannot possibly have a seaport.
But then I realized that TO wanted to pay the Germans a compliment: Drinking their wine seems to be the sensible thing to do, even if you hate the French, as opposed to pouring it down the toilet, as is done by French haters in another country I could mention. We Rhinelander at least got along splendidly with the French, like under the Napoleonic occupation, much better than with the Prussians, who became our masters after the Congress of Vienna.
If you had asked me after the fall of the Berlin Wall if West Germany should unite with East Germany or France, I would have considered it a no-brainer: France of course! When Chancellor Adenauer (her ALTER), who went to the same grammar school that I went to in Cologne, travelled by train from Bonn to West Berlin, he asked his aide, as they crossed the border with East Germany at the ELBE, to close the curtains b/c he did not want to see “this Asiatic steppe”.
One thing in favor of this theme is that when you remove WITH from most phrases, you're left with complete nonsense. Once determining it was the latter, (helped by a Neanderthals reading, “WITH not in; Without”), the theme answers flowed but, surprisingly, with answers which are, oddly, pizzazzless, causing the usually inventive Tony O. to offer up a rather disappointing puzzle.
For me, the only theme entry to even vaguely tickle the funny bone was 91 across, as the upset party planner learns that IMTHEBAND. Nice mini-theme with the La Manchu cluing, (if two entries can make for a mini-theme), giving us DULCINEA and CABALLEROS.
But, it was disappointing to see that the AMISH have slipped in stature and are now looked at mainly as traffic hazards. SW was the last to fall as I had the same errors as others--teal, muse, Flaky.
Saw Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy yesterday. I always marvel at the challenge of constructing Sunday puzzles; 350+ letters and how they must hold our interest.
I agree with some comments that while the theme was pretty easily discernible the answers were less obvious and frankly clever when they were revealed. I was pleasantly surprised that Rex highlighted HOLD as the word of the day.
@CoolPapa if you're ever in San Francisco, GOETHE is pronounced GO THEE or, as I pronounced it and refused to budge, GETTY. If you love French wines and a history buff “Wine & WAR” by Don and Pete Kladstrup is a terrific book. I enjoyed the puzzle. It didn't have a ton of crappy fill and one of these days I will remember the name of Prince Valiant't son.
Based on everything I've seen and read about and by him, Bill Maker (like Jon Stewart) considers himself a comedian, not a pundit. I bet there's an Alessandra Stanley article in the NYT where she presumptuously imposed that status on him.
I'm also curious about Rex's claim that Little Eva weighed 350 lbs. I wake up this morning a little bleary-eyed, have some OJ to down the many pills and supplements that keep me breathing and open up the Rex Blog and read your comment.
I ask myself, “What did I do to deserve this cold blast of sarcasm on the day of the Sabbath?” Was it because I expect more from my idol than the milquetoast he served up yesterday? Perhaps he has grown tired of my daily praise and wishes to assert his thoughts free of critique.
If you attended a land-grant college, ROTC was a requisite (for your first two years), not an elective. Found some theme answers funny (I'm THE BAND, I ONLY Want to BE YOU) but the grid was so choppy and with so much crosswordese-y fill that it was hard to get much joy.
Finished in good time, but it didn't make me feel particularly clever. Started laughing and told the wife there's no way Nets would allow that...
I keep doing words because they are absorbing enough to keep my mind off of any unpleasantness and stress going on in my life. I had a Malaprop by putting in style for Model, then getting STYLIZE elsewhere for that stick figure thing.
Guessed at EVA and still could not see AVOCADO, and ROTC is a College Elective? I felt that the Atlantic Capitol was probably African, but could not remember ACCRA.
On a cheerier note, since @quilter1 is recommending movies, we had a (surprisingly) great time with the new Mission Impossible. Brad Bird is an outstanding director and this one addresses all the complaints about previous entries in the franchise.
Fun team work, great pacing, interesting characters, and wonderful cinematography. Given that Oscar Wilde once said “I find it harder and harder every day to live up to my blue china” I think that he would have liked your “tiny china” answer.
As with my failure to recall OS RIC without multiple crosses every time it's in a puzzle, I just can't spell UKULELE correctly. Couple that today with my inability to nail the correct synonyms for Allotment, Tainted, et al., and the SW became unnecessarily thorny.
That the clue puts “little” in quotes suggests that the term may be ironic. By pointing this out ARP highlights that the quotation marks were unneeded, maybe even inaccurate.
Oh well, will have to be DOING WITHOUT “The Good Wife” tonight, so I can GETTHEPROGRAM “Downton Abbey” ! @GenJoneser: Not only that but EAT ME was written on the cake covering the Death mobile in the parade scene ...
Have been to Lake Powell and of course have crossed the Tap pan ZEE many times. Took the family (wife and two teens) on a visit to the national parks out west 30 years ago and opted for a “Lake Powell adventure,” as the boating rental place promised.
Turned out to be quite an adventure as many of the buoys marking a route to the spectacular natural bridge were present only sporadically and when an afternoon thunderstorm came up at 2PM, we lost our way back. We were in a small powerboat confronted by gale force winds, a lashing rain, four foot waves and thought we would perish.
Fortunately, the storm abated, and we somehow found our way back. I wrote a column for the school newspaper and praised ROTC because “it only required short hair only one hour a week”.
Had a similar solving experience as @Glimmerglass, that NE corner stayed pretty white for a long time. Where I went to college, (N)ROTC helped pay tuition and would not have been considered an option for those in the program.
Great house boating, but, Sarto, don't try any long day trips with a boat less than 22 feet. BTW, FWIW, and FYI, the “Planet of the Apes” remake, “Evolution”, and the new “John Carter of Mars” were filmed there.
Longtime lurker from syndication land, now solving in real time on an android tablet. The NYT app for android does not include the puzzles title.
My Thorndike Barnhart Comprehensive Desk Dictionary, copyright 1951, lists both PEERESS and UKULELE just as in the puzzle. I got tripped up in the NE corner by having DON'T PLAY GAMES(with)ME and never questioning it.
Theme answers were fun to guess and the fill was very even in its difficulty. Hate the song I Only Want to Be With You, that bawling voice kills my trip to the supermarket.
Tony's being a musician shone through with Ukulele, IONLYWANNABEYOU, Little EVA, IMTHEBAND... And CREAM and EARLE could have gone a musical way. Had STORY where COSMOS was so didn't get the whole NE corner, till I peeked at MATCHES...then everything fell. I had even thought about DOWNPLAY with fire, with my heart, but MATCHES eluded me.
Well, a simple little glitch threw me out of the NW and all the way around this puzzle in a big circle till that was the only area left. Then, groaning, I got it: I had put in TOGAS, quite naturally, and that damn S was so confusing--I couldn't figure out what getting misty had to do with tsetse flies, tsar(Ina)s, or tsunamis, so I rejected STILT and--oh, fuhgeddaboudit, it was ugly.
I don't quite know what Ukuleles have to do with Tin Pan Alley, but the crosses left it unmistakable. Better you should've made that HER, hero of The Blind Side, and CAMO for 55d, to get RACEDESTINY.
I've often read sports pages where an athletic contest was called a “tilt.” It has a question mark, like the other clues, but I can't fit “with” anywhere in epicure.
