Hurricane Irma Hits The Caribbean:

As Hurricane Irma’s eye roars on away from the tiny island of Barbuda and toward St. Martin, residents along its path scrambled to evacuate and also stocked up on water, food and gas.

The massive eye stared down on the tiny island of Barbuda early Wednesday, thrashing it with high winds before marching along its path on the Caribbean.
Irma’s eye was bigger than Barbuda, CNN meteorologist Jenn Varian said. It packed winds of 185 mph, making it one of the most powerful Atlantic storms ever recorded.
The Category 5 hurricane is “potentially catastrophic,” especially if it hits islands at high tides, the National Hurricane Center said.

Sessions As Face Of DACA Decision Reveals Internal Struggle:

When the time came for the Trump administration to announce it was ending DACA on Tuesday, there was a familiar face at the podium. But it wasn’t the President, it was Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

It’s no surprise to anyone who has followed Sessions’ career that he would take an opportunity to criticize DACA or announce its end. But President Donald Trump’s outsourcing of the official announcement to Sessions was evidence of how central a role the attorney general played in the decision to end the program — and Trump’s aversion to announcing that decision himself.
The longtime opponent of DACA pushed for an end to the program in what was described as a “tug-of-war” among the President’s advisers in internal White House deliberations, according to an official familiar with the talks.

Puerto Ricans Stock Up, Brace For Irma:

People rushed to stores in Puerto Rico on Tuesday, emptying shelves of food and water as worry set in ahead of Hurricane Irma‘s expected impact Wednesday on the US territory.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard in preparation.
Those living on the commonwealth braced for the hurricane’s potentially devastating winds and deluge, fearing if the Category 5 storm knocks out power from the bankrupt island’s weakened electrical system, it may take weeks or months before power is restored.
Irma could be the strongest hurricane to ever hit the island, forecasters say. Some wonder whether Puerto Rico can rebuild.
“This is not a hurricane, this is a beast,” a clerk in San Juan told CNN.

Aung San Suu Kyi Blames ‘Terrorists’ For Rohingya ‘Misinformation’:

Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has made her first public comments on the fate of her country’s persecuted Rohingya minority since new violence broke out almost two weeks ago.

Suu Kyi, who as Myanmar’s state counsellor is the country’s de facto leader, claimed during a phone conversation with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan a “huge iceberg of misinformation” about the Rohingya crisis was being distributed to benefit “terrorists.”
According to a readout of the call, she added her government was fighting to ensure “terrorism” didn’t spread over the whole of Rakhine state.
Suu Kyi has come under fire in recent days for failing to speak out against the mass killings and displacement of Rohingya by her government, particularly given her previous image as a champion of human rights.

Football Is Only the Latest Triumph for Blind USC Long Snapper Jake Olson:

What if all you really knew was fighting a battle so many have lost, a daily grind of what’s next that overwhelms everything every day? What would life be?

Let me introduce you, everyone, to life.

Big, bold, beautiful life.

Jake Olson was born with a rare form of cancer of the retina, retinoblastoma, which destroys the ability to see. When he was 10 months old, it took the sight from his left eye. Then when he was 12 years old, he lost sight in his right eye.

But what happened along the road to blindness isn’t what you might expect. A strange realization came to Olson. There is vision in it, Olson will tell you. A clear, simple, honest vision.
