"@csmphotos photographed reindeer running as herders drove them across the tundra in Canada's #NorthwestTerritories. The Canadian Reindeer company grazes roughly 3,000 #reindeer on land between the town of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, a remote village in the #ArcticCircle known for its caribou, northern lights and frigid winters. Tuktoyaktuk — known as Tuk — feels like Canada's last frontier. But a new highway being built there could change that. When the road is complete, driving to Tuk from the U.S. could make for an epic #roadtrip. Visit the link in our profile to read @peterkujawinski's story for @nytimestravel. This #nytweekender, we'll share more of @csmphotos's photos from his #roadtrip to the end of the world." By nytimes on Instagram.

"@simonebiles is the best American gymnast since, well, probably ever. Although she's just 4 feet 9 inches, with size 5 feet, there's an unfathomable amount of power packed into her petite frame. The 18-year-old #gymnast flies through the air as if she were part bird and part cannonball. @simonebiles insists that she's just like any other teenager, but she's not. She was identified as a prodigy when she was 6. She even has a signature move named after her: the Biles, a double flip in the layout position with a half twist added at the end. You'll see it soon enough. The @nytvideo journalist @leslyedavis photographed @simonebiles practicing at her parents' gymnastics facility in Spring, Texas. Visit the link in our profile to read more about the gymnast @nytimessports calls the favorite to win the all-around title at the @rio2016 Games." By nytimes on Instagram.

"Looking for #ValentinesDay sustenance? Consider this chocolate caramel tart, photographed by our staff photographer @jimwilson125: Layers of silky caramel and dark chocolate ganache come together with a sprinkling of snow-white fleur de sel. It's hard to believe this in an age when salted caramel ice cream is almost as common as vanilla, but desserts starring salt were once a new thing. @nytfood first featured this recipe in a 2000 article about the trend. Visit the link in our profile to find the #NYTCooking recipe. Enjoy with a loved one, with a group of friends or — no shame here — on your own." By nytimes on Instagram.

"Milton Borges González waited all day at a border station in Laredo, Texas, for his wife, Lisbeth Torres, to make it across the border to the United States. Milton, 38, said he was "the happiest man on earth" when Lisbeth, who is 7 months pregnant, emerged with her parole in hand. The couple hadn't seen each other since September, when Milton left Cuba. "I came to work," said Milton, who has been living in Houston "and here they let you work and they pay you if you work. The United States gives us a lot of help because we are Cubans," he continued. "Thank God for that." But the friendly reception of Cubans is a stark contrast to the treatment of Central American families fleeing violence in their home countries. As a result, tensions have been rising in Laredo, a predominantly Mexican-American city. @ilanapl photographed Milton and Lisbeth stopping for food before their drive to Houston."

"A surreal political circus is wheeling its way through the frosty streets of Tampere, Finland's third-largest city. In one ring is the Soldiers of Odin, a far-right vigilante patrol that has taken upon itself the task of protecting Finns from the 1,200 or so people seeking asylum there from Syria, Iraq and other places. In another ring is a troupe of clowns who skip through the streets carrying lollipops, feather dusters and toilet brushes, mocking and sometimes confronting anti-immigrant groups. The clowns, who call themselves the Loldiers of Odin, have emerged on the scene as champions of multiculturalism. The photographer @ilvynjio captured the Loldiers of Odin clowning around in #Tampere last month." By nytimes on Instagram.

""As a small girl, we didn't live too far from a railroad spur. And Wendell Willke came into town, and I went out to see him. And I said, "Oh mom, you have to vote for him, he's cute!" And she says, "What did you do? Where did you go?" And I got the third degree. "Don't you ever come into this house talking like that again!" So that's how I got indoctrinated into what's the good party and what's not the good party. And then I married a rabid Democrat. I would say all my kids are Democrats. I like Hillary because I thought she should have got it eight years ago, when I busted my — I mean, when I caucused for her." @nytimes reporters are asking people at #Election2016 campaign events — like Carol Hendricks of Sioux City, Iowa, pictured here — what makes them passionate about politics.

"This #blackhistorymonth, we're sharing unpublished photos from the @nytimes's archives. This is the oldest image in our #UnpublishedBlackHistory series: a sidewalk scene in Harlem from 1946. A girl skips rope amid a crowd of children on a lazy summer afternoon. But what's most striking is the woman who wasn't captured by the camera's lens. That woman was Zora Neale Hurston, the novelist and folklorist known as the Queen of the Harlem Renaissance. This photograph, by @nytimes staff photographer Fred Sass, was shot for an article about Zora and her program to combat juvenile delinquency in the community. But it never appeared in print."

"The choreographer Alwin Nikolais, who died in 1993, has long been accused of dehumanizing dance. Although, shapes may take the place of bodies and masks the place of faces, there's no denying the heart in Alwin's choreography. Earlier this week at @thejoycetheater, the @ririewoodbury dance company celebrated his work with a program of 4 pieces, spanning Alwin's long career. @andrea_mohin, who covers dance for @nytimes, photographed 2 @ririewoodbury dancers performing "Gallery," which the @nytimes critic Roslyn Sulcas described as "an adventure of disembodied heads, floating pinwheels and dancing clowns — the scary sort. It's a trip, and no drugs are necessary." #regram" By nytimes on Instagram.

"Kanye West simultaneously debuted his #YeezySeason3 fashion collection and his new album, "The Life of Pablo," at #MadisonSquareGarden today. A fashion show usually runs for 15 minutes, 20 minutes max. The #Kanye extravaganza, though, went on for about an hour and a half. When his album finished playing, #Kanye promptly asked for a review. "Tell me how y'all feel?" he asked amid the cheers. "Did I deliver on my promise on that album?" He also made a surprising fashion-related confession: that to be creative director of @hermes is a dream of his. "I just want to bring as much beauty to the world as possible." @damonwinter photographed the #KanyeWest performance, pictured here, and fashion show while on #nytassignment. #nyfw" By nytimes on Instagram.

"Basketball hoops are as much a part of the tableau of San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala, as the pat-pat-pat sound of women slapping tortillas into shape in storefronts. In recent years, Guatemala has been re-embraced Mayan culture. For many of the Tz'utujils, who live on the south shore of Lake Atitlán, basketball offered a connection to a traditional Mayan sport, in which players use their shoulders and thighs to put a ball through a vertical hoop. At the same time, globalization has brought outside influences to the country. Basketball, then, is a both link to the present and the past. @daniele_volpe photographed a court in San Pedro, where the water level of Lake Atitlán had submerged everything but its backboard and rims. #��" By nytimes on Instagram.

"When a 21-year-old upstart toppled the top-seeded tennis player at a tournament in July 1964, @nytimes published 2 photos of Dennis Ralston, the No. 2 ranked player at that time. But the story didn't include a single picture of the winner: a young player named Arthur Ashe, pictured here in a photo taken by @nytimes staff photographer Neal Boenzi. #ArthurAshe would ultimately become the first black man to win @wimbledon, the @usopen and @australianopen. But in July 1964, he was just 6th in the nation. So maybe that was why we didn't run this photo. Or maybe it was because the shots of Ralston were more dramatic. Or perhaps it was hard for our editors at that time to imagine that Arthur Ashe's victory was more than just a lucky break.

"@officialslystallone's Oscar nomination, for his supporting performance in @creedmovie — the 7th film in the "Rocky" franchise — has left him enormously grateful and glowingly proud. "It's the pinnacle of my life, professionally," @officialslystallone, 69, told @nytimes. "It's so miraculous." To prepare for his role, this time as an aged and ailing Rocky, the longtime action-movie hero hired a full-time acting coach. It had been 4 decades since @SylvesterStallone won his last Oscar nomination. His skill set, he said, "had basically atrophied." But the kudos he's getting now make him wish that he had pursued more roles like this earlier on. "I think the world could have lived without 'The Expendables' without spinning out of orbit," @officialslystallone said. "I really do." @eliz took this #portrait of @officialslystallone while on #nytassignment." By nytimes on Instagram.

"Berlin's Tempelhof Airport has long written chapters of the city's history. The Prussians once paraded on its grounds. In the 1930s, what was once a modest airfield became a gigantic entrance to Hitler's new Germany. And the airport was later used by the Americans to run the airlift that saved West Berlin from a Soviet blockade. But now, Tempelhof is poised to become Germany's largest refugee center. As many as 800 refugees are currently living at the airport, which could ultimately house about 7,000 people. The refugees — who hail from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere — have added their own layer to Tempelhof's archaeology: marking up the temporary screens that define each family's sparse space with simple messages or flags and emblems from home. @gordonwelters photographed Tempelhof while on #nytassignment."

"When the #model @cocorocha arrived on the New York City scene 14 years ago, "we all looked alike and we were all disposable," she said. Injecting personality into the social media landscape wasn't advised. "We were told that posting on Twitter about brushing your teeth takes away the mystery," her husband @jamesedwardconran added. But @cocorocha took a different view: "It also humanizes you." Today, the 27-year-old model and social media star has a towering social media presence, which includes 1 million followers on @Instagram and 1.44 million on Twitter. She used her online celebrity to launch the #CoAndCo fashion line, and along the way she has nabbed speaking engagements, stints on TV and a book deal. @anrizzy photographed @cocorocha at @wearespin, a #tabletennis social club in Manhattan.

"At 21, Cooper Davis is a husband and a father. And he has one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Cooper is a professional bull rider — a good one, too. Last October, he won the @teampbr world finals, along with its $250,000 purse. To the profound dismay of his family, Cooper has been riding bulls since he was 13. "They all hated it," he said. "But it was one of those things I wanted to do so bad, and they weren't going to tell me no."

“The average American eats about 55 pounds of beef a year....



"The average American eats about 55 pounds of beef a year. But bison consumption per capita barely adds up to a couple of burgers. As bison meat picks up new fans, though, especially among high-end chefs, bone broth enthusiasts and the #paleo crowd, 2 distinct views have emerged on how to treat the animals. On one side are old-school ranchers — like the billionaire Ted Turner, who owns 1.9 million acres of land and more bison that anyone else on the planet — who send their bison to feedlots and slaughter them like conventional cattle. On the other side are people who think America's red meat should be raised as wild as possible and slaughtered as humanely as possible. Dan O'Brien, owner of the 23,000-acre Cheyenne River Ranch just west of the @badlandsnps, falls into this second category. @kristinabarker photographed bison grazing on Dan's ranch while on @nytassignment for @nytfood."

"Paul Reubens has been plotting @peeweeherman's big comeback for years. He wrote several scripts, made cameo appearances on TV and amassed nearly 2 million Twitter fol­lowers. He even launched a Los Angeles stage production of the ''Pee-wee Herman Show,'' which turned into a 10-week Broadway incarnation later that year. ''Part of the reason why I wanted to come back is that I didn't have a real good ending to my career,'' said Paul, 63, alluding to his 1991 arrest on charges of indecent exposure. But after disappearing for nearly 3 decades, he's attempting to make these events a mere footnote in the @peeweeherman story. This March on @netflix, @peeweeherman returns in his first movie in 28 years, ''Pee-wee's Big Holiday.'' @aspictures photographed Paul Reubens for @nytmag.
