Good morning.

Here&rsquos what you want to know:

A renewed shutdown threat

&bull President Trump stated on Sunday that he was prepared to shut down the government just just before the midterm elections this fall if Congress doesn&rsquot fund a wall on the border with Mexico.

Republican leaders had hoped to delay such a confrontation, which would distract from their push to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in September, and believed they had reached a deal with Mr. Trump on the topic last week.

&bull On the campaign trail, the new tax law was supposed to mobilize Republican voters and aid the celebration keep the Home. But we visited a district in Ohio and found that isn&rsquot how it&rsquos playing out.

Heat wreaks havoc

&bull The continental U.S. had its hottest Could and the third-hottest June. Japan has been walloped by record triple-digit temperatures, killing at least 86 people. Record temperatures have been also logged on the edge of the Sahara and above the Arctic Circle.

Its author, Emily Bront&euml, born 200 years ago these days in Thornton, England, died of tuberculosis at 30, a year soon after publishing her tale of quasi-incestuous enjoy amongst the savage (yet irresistibly compelling) Heathcliff and the selfish (but gorgeous) Catherine. She would in no way see her novel, published beneath the pseudonym Ellis Bell, become the template for a thousand future romance stories.

These days there are some 60 translations and multiple film versions of &ldquoWuthering Heights,&rdquo such as in Japanese and Spanish (directed by Luis Bu&ntildeuel).

Emily, the middle of three literary Bront&euml sisters (Charlotte wrote &ldquoJane Eyre,&rdquo Anne wrote &ldquoThe Tenant of Wildfell Hall&rdquo), seldom left property and had couple of close friends. Na&iumlve, stubborn and prickly, she gravitated to animals and the Yorkshire moors, where &ldquoWuthering Heights&rdquo is set. She was also a poet.

And in the estimation of Virginia Woolf, she was a genius on a par with Jane Austen, writing without worry of what the male-dominated literary world may possibly believe.

&ldquoI have never seen her parallel in anything,&rdquo Charlotte Bront&euml stated following Emily died in 1848. &ldquoStronger than a man, easier than a child, her nature stood alone.&rdquo
