On the matter of Naomi Osaka and the French Open: I suspect a day will come when people will look back upon this moment and be mystified by how agitated it all got, how a player opting out of routine press conferences and deciding to leave a tournament because of concern about her own mental health became such a global uproar.

Taking on the role of head of the world’s most visited museum, des Cars will bring her expertise in 19th and early 20th-century art, and became part of the 67 percent of the country’s national museums which are headed by women, according to the country’s culture ministry.

She’s just what we need now: a Fauci for a post-vaccine America. We discussed the #1 antidote to stress, parenting and partner debt, exactly what to do when the world is ending, and how to feel normal in these starkly abnormal times. This conversation has been edited for clarity. Read more here.
