The lava lake within Halemaumau Crater at the summit of Kilauea Volcano is creating a scene remindful of a messy barbershop floor, except that it’s acres and acres wide rather than a few square feet. The ground downwind of the crater is strewn with Pele’s hair, and it is almost impossible to avoid stepping on it.

WASHINGTON — When told that the New England transcendentalist Margaret Fuller had grandly declared “I accept the universe,” the Scottish philosopher Thomas Carlyle dryly remarked: “She’d better.” Much ink and indignation has been spilled concerning whether Donald (“I am much more humble than you would understand”) Trump will “accept” the election’s outcome. The nation, like the universe of which it is the nicest part, will persevere even without the election result being accepted by the fellow who probably will be the first presidential candidate in 16 years to receive less — probably a lot less — than 45 percent of the vote.

The exciting flavors of Chinese cuisine are captured in this five-spice stir-fried pork. Five-spice powder is a mixture of five ground spices usually consisting of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. It gives a pungent, aromatic flavor to this quick dish. You only need a little for this recipe, but I like to keep it on hand to sprinkle on cooked vegetables, over rice or in salad dressings to create an Asian touch.
