Irma: Florida governor's climate change denial has made state even more vulnerable, warn expertsAs Hurricane Irma ominously makes its way to Florida, experts have warned that the governor’s denial of climate change makes the state’s infrastructure more vulnerable to damage.

Donald Trump Jr. doesn't seem to know which way framed photos of your children should face

Donald Trump Jr. doesn't seem to know which way framed photos of your children should faceDonald Trump Jr. loves his children so much that he doesn't actually look at them all day.  The father of five was pictured sitting at his desk in Trump Tower, contemplating his fate in a
New York Times article earlier this week about his meeting with Senate investigators over his ties to Russia.  On Saturday, however, Twitter noticed something odd about the photo, taken in February.  I, too, casually arrange photographs of my 100 children to face outwards so I can only see the backs of frames pic.twitter.com/Pa0cHP5ayj — Ashley Feinberg (@ashleyfeinberg) September 8, 2017 Ah, yes. Trump Jr. doesn't actually seem to look at the photos of his brood all day. Or, more likely, he turned them around for his
New York Times photoshoot. Which is weird.  Also, he has a bobblehead doll of his dad. Which is also weird. *100 children and large portrait of myself https://t.co/ixWh3I2ESE — Alessandra T Codinha (@ATCodinha) September 8, 2017 Today in Not at All Staged Photoshoot: https://t.co/4UeHz19DRu — Hubert O'Hearn (@BTBReviews) September 9, 2017 The bobblehead is a nice touch. https://t.co/hluG3BLlAl — Annemarie Conte (@annemarieconte) September 9, 2017 Is there really any other way to do it?  樂樂 https://t.co/I8nDRn9EU7 — Aleem (@TrudeauMacron) September 9, 2017 His photos shoots are all awkward af pic.twitter.com/LoVhqrVpyr — pauisanoun (@pauisanoun) September 8, 2017 Donald Trump III and his four siblings really appreciate getting in the shot.  WATCH: The striking differences between Stephen King 'It' and the 1990’s mini series


US troops and Russia-backed Syrian forces set to come into contact as they close in separately on Isis

US troops and Russia-backed Syrian forces set to come into contact as they close in separately on IsisUS-backed forces and Syrian government troops, supported by Russia and Iran, look set to come into contact as they each make separate advances against Isis in Syria. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched an offensive against Isis along the border with Iraq on Saturday, bringing them into a race with government forces marching in the same direction against the extremists. The duelling battles for Deir Ezzor highlight the importance of the oil-rich eastern province, which has become the latest focus of the international war against tIsis, raising concerns of an eventual clash between the two sides.


Houston residents confront officials over decision to flood neighborhoods

Houston residents confront officials over decision to flood neighborhoodsBy Emily Flitter HOUSTON (Reuters) – Angry Houston residents shouted at city officials on Saturday over decisions to intentionally flood certain neighborhoods during Hurricane Harvey, as they returned to homes that may have been contaminated by overflowing sewers. A town hall grew heated after City Council member Greg Travis, who represents parts of western Houston, told about 250 people that an Army Corps of Engineers official told him that certain gauges measuring water levels at the Buffalo Bayou – the city’s main waterway – failed due to a decision to release water from two municipal reservoirs to avoid an overflow.
