Curt Nason said people don't usually look into the sun and that rule should apply during the eclipse.

'Extremely cool'Upham said some people are disappointed the full eclipse won't be visible in New Brunswick, but they shouldn't be. "You are going to watch the moon move between you and the sun and blot out part of the sun for a fairly sizeable chunk of the afternoon... as far as astronomical events go, this is the kind of thing which would have literally terrified your great, great, great, great, great grandparents," said Upham.

The previous death toll was 14 — 13 people killed in a van attack on Barcelona’s Las Ramblas promenade on Thursday, and one woman killed hours later in Cambrils. “It’s evident that the person who committed the van attack can’t be dead because the explosion happened before the attack in Las Ramblas,” Forn said. Spanish newspaper El Pais published images Monday of what it says is Abouyaaqoub supposedly making a getaway on foot after the Barcelona van attack. The three images show a slim man wearing sunglasses seemingly walking through what El Pais says is traditional La Boqueria market just off Las Ramblas. Besides that, Puigdemont said closing off Las Ramblas was impractical because emergency vehicles still would need to be able to access the area.

University of Texas president Greg Fenves has ordered the immediate removal of statues of Robert E. Lee and other prominent Confederate figures from a main area of campus, saying such monuments have become "symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism." These events make it clear, now more than ever, that Confederate monuments have become symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism," Fenves said in a statement. 'Erected during the period of Jim Crow laws'Moving the Davis statue in 2015 was a much more deliberate effort. Confederate groups tried to block the removal of the Davis statue and the Sons of Confederate Veterans sued to stop it, but a state district judge sided with the school. That remains true today for white supremacists who use them to symbolize hatred and bigotry."

PHOENIX — Sen. John McCain’s packed agenda while on break from Congress in his home state of Arizona has hardly been the schedule of a typical brain cancer patient – or even someone about to turn 81. McCain’s spokeswoman in Washington, Julie Tarallo, said the senator was not available for an interview with The Associated Press. His daughter, Meghan McCain, tweeted Friday that he had just finished his first round of chemotherapy. “You mean Senator McCain, who voted against us getting good health care?” Trump asked when his name came up during a news conference.

WASHINGTON — Business economists believe that the Federal Reserve’s long-awaited move to start reducing its massive bond holdings will push long-term bond rates up, but most think the impact will be fairly modest. A National Association for Business Economics survey released Monday found that 41 per cent of economists surveyed expected rates on the 10-year Treasury note will rise by just one-half percentage point or less. About one-fourth saw an increase of three-fourths of a percentage point to a full percentage point in the 10-year note. Only 11 per cent saw rates going up more than 1 percentage point over the extended period that the Fed is reducing its holdings. The policy survey summarized the responses of 184 of the association’s members surveyed from July 18 to Aug. 2.
