There are signs that the endangered Key deer, a species that lives only in the Florida Keys, has managed to weather Hurricane Irma, per The Scientist.

  • By the numbers: There are fewer than 1,000 Key deer still living in the wild.
  • Staying put: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service chose to let the deer remain in the wild, given the difficulty of collecting the animals and the fact that they've handled the weather in the Keys for thousands of years. In fact, human activity, especially the danger from cars, is the greatest threat to the tiny deer's conservation.
  • The good news: CBS photographers on Big Pine Key spotted a group of four Key deer yesterday.

President Trump's suburbs

President Trump cast an outdated vision of "the 'suburban housewife'" as he swiped this week at Joe Biden's newly minted running mate Kamala Harris — building on his months-long play to drive a wedge through battleground-state suburbs by reframing white voters' expectations.

The big picture: As he struggles to find an attack that will stick against the Biden campaign, Trump for a while now has been stoking fears of lawless cities and an end to what he's called the “Suburban Lifestyle Dream.” It’s a playbook from the ‘70s and ‘80s — but the suburbs have changed a lot since then.

Trump tightens screws on ByteDance to sell Tiktok

President Trump added more pressure Friday night on China-based TikTok parent ByteDance to exit the U.S., ordering it to divest all assets related to the U.S. operation of TikTok within 90 days.

Between the lines: The order means ByteDance must be wholly disentangled from TikTok in the U.S. by November. Trump had previously ordered TikTok banned if ByteDance hadn't struck a deal within 45 days. The new order likely means ByteDance has just another 45 days after that to fully close the deal, one White House source told Axios.
