Repost @time: At first glance, the man on our July 30, 2018, cover might seem familiar: it was created by morphing images of two of the world’s most recognizable men, President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The composite image, by visual artist @nancyburson, is meant to represent this particular moment in U.S. foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki. As our senior White House correspondent Brian Bennett writes in this week’s cover story: “A year and a half into his presidency, Trump’s puzzling affinity for Putin has yet to be explained. Trump is bruised by the idea that Russian election meddling taints his victory, those close to him say, and can’t concede the fact that Russia did try to interfere in the election, regardless of whether it impacted the outcome. He views this problem entirely through a political lens, these people say, unable or unwilling to differentiate between the question of whether his campaign colluded with Russia—which he denies—and the question of whether Russia attempted to influence the election.” Burson, who became well known for developing a technique to age faces, which is used by the FBI to find missing children, says the goal of her latest composite is to help readers “stop and think” when it comes to similarities between the two leaders. “What my work has always been about is allowing people to see differently,” she tells TIME. “The combining of faces is a different way for people to see what they couldn’t see before.” Read this week's full cover story on TIME.com.

Man Shot in Las Vegas After Saving 30 People From Attack-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Though the horrific incident in LasVegas has taken the news by storm, one man is now being acknowledged for his heroism. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 30-year-old JonathanSmith, a copy machine repairman, dedicated his life that night to ushering more than 30 people to safe hiding places behind cars during the moments of the attack. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In doing so, Smith suffered his own injuries after being shot in the neck. “I couldn’t feel anything in my neck. There was a warm sensation in my arm,” he told the Washington Post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Luckily though, Smith was able to walk out of the hospital, despite his fractured collarbone, a cracked rib and a bruised lung. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As far as the bullet that could have almost taken his life, Smith says the bullet remains in place as doctors fear that removing it could cause more damage. “I might have to live with this bullet for the rest of my life,” Smith said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to how he feels about his new heroic status Smith said, "I would want someone to do the same for me. No one deserves to lose a life coming to a country music festival.”: Man Shot in Las Vegas After Saving 30 People From Attack @balleralert Man Shot in Las Vegas After Saving 30 People From Attack-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Though the horrific incident in LasVegas has taken the news by storm, one man is now being acknowledged for his heroism. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 30-year-old JonathanSmith, a copy machine repairman, dedicated his life that night to ushering more than 30 people to safe hiding places behind cars during the moments of the attack. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In doing so, Smith suffered his own injuries after being shot in the neck. “I couldn’t feel anything in my neck.
