On Tuesday, he mentioned he wanted “to get out” of Syria.

• The Occasions, in other words
Here’s an image of today (may refer to: The day of the present, the time that is perceived directly, often called now)’s front web page, and hyperlinks to our Opinion content and crossword puzzles.
Every single week, The Times (is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future)’s crossword (crossword is a word puzzle that usually takes the form of a square or a rectangular grid of white-and black-shaded squares) column, Wordplay, highlights the answer to a single of the most difficult clues from the previous week (week is a time unit equal to seven days)’s puzzles (puzzle is a game, problem, or toy that tests a person’s ingenuity or knowledge).
This week’s word: Niobe.
The Greek mythological character Niobe was the topic of a challenging clue from the March 28 crossword puzzle: “ ‘Like (English, the word like has a very flexible range of uses, ranging from conventional to non-standard) ___, all tears’: Hamlet.” The word (linguistics, a word is the smallest element that can be uttered in isolation with objective or practical meaning) has appeared in Instances crosswords 139 occasions.
Niobe is most closely linked with tears, as noted in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”:
A little month, or ere these shoes were old
With which she followed my poor father’s physique,
Like Niobe, all tears. Why she, even she —
O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason
Would have mourned longer! — married with my uncle
The story of Niobe’s tears began at a ceremony held to honor the Titan Leto, mother (mother is the female parent of a child) of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis. In a fit of arrogance, Niobe bragged that she was superior to Leto because she had far more youngsters (either 12 or 14, depending on the version of the myth).
When the twins heard this, they came to earth and killed all of Niobe’s young children. In anguish, she ran to Mount Sipylus to beg the gods to end her discomfort. Zeus felt sorry for her and turned her into a rock, so she would really feel no much more.
Even as a rock (or Rocks may refer to), nevertheless, Niobe (Greek mythology, Niobe (; Greek: Νιόβη [ni.óbɛː]) was a daughter of Tantalus and of either Dione, the most frequently cited, or of Eurythemista or Euryanassa, and the sister of Pelops and Broteas)’s tears (Tears or Tearing may refer to: Tears, a watery secretion from the eyes Tearing, the act of ripping fabric or other materials) continued to flow, and the stream that pours from the genuine Weeping Rock in Manisa, Turkey, symbolizes a mother’s eternal mourning.
