Irma Heads For Bahamas, Cuba, Leaving Devastation In Its Wake:

Hurricane Irma hurtled through the Caribbean on Friday, leaving catastrophic damage in its wake as it closed in on Florida where it could slam into Miami this weekend.

The storm barreled between Cuba and the Turks and Caicos Islands early Friday morning, and is expected to move westward toward the Bahamas.
Irma was downgraded to a strong category 4 storm on Friday, but winds still reached a sustained maximum of 155 mph,the US National Hurricane Center said. At its peak, winds reached sustained maximums of 180mph.
At least 10 people were killed as Irma pummeled small northeastern Caribbean islands such as Barbuda. In Puerto Rico, hundreds of thousands people were left without power.

Florida Air Travel Starts To Shut Down Ahead of Irma:

Hurricane Irma’s impending landfall in Florida is forcing airlines serving some of the largest airports in America to shutter operations and get out of the way of the powerful storm.

Irma has already trashed airports, buildings and roads in the Caribbean. St. Maarten, a major international destination for U.S. and European carriers, was in ruins after the storm. Photos from the Netherlands Ministry of Defense showed its runway covered in sand and widespread damage at its terminal building and jetways.

By late Saturday, Miami, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale – home to the 12th, 13th, 21st largest airports in the U.S., respectively – will be largely dormant as the extreme weather rolls in.

Marcus Peters Sits During National Anthem of Chiefs vs. Patriots:

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters remained seated during the national anthem ahead of his team’s season opener against the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

Peters continued the movement started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began protesting during the national anthem last preseason and carried it through to the regular season.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said to NFL Network’s Steve Wyche in August 2016. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Ivanka: Key Player Or Daddy’s Little Girl?:

Daddy, can I go with you?”

That’s the question President Trump says his 35-year-old daughter, Ivanka, posed to him before his trip this week to North Dakota, where he talked to a crowd about tax reform. “Yes,” he says he told her, “you can.”
With that introduction, little Ivanka took the stage.
Among the many confounding aspects of the Trump presidency has been the role of Ivanka, his elder, and clearly favored, daughter. (When’s the last time you heard him talk about Tiffany, his daughter with ex-wife Marla Maples, never mind trot her out before a crowd of voters?) Ivanka and her husband are official White House advisors — and two of the President’s closest.
Ivanka Trump presents herself on social media and elsewhere as socially progressive. And she has been pegged by many as a (notably female) counter to Trump’s more openly conservative stances on everything from immigration and national security to, yes, women.
