Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie released a statement on Saturday evening following comments made by President Donald Trump. Trump recently called for NFL owners to fire players who protest during the national anthem. Here’s Lurie’s statement: The best of us lend our compassion and determination to the aid of others. Every day I see the genuine dedication and hard work of our players. And I support them as they take their courage, character, and commitment into our communities to make them better or to call attention to injustice. Having spoken with our players, I can attest to the great respect they have for our national anthem and all it represents. We at the Philadelphia Eagles firmly
It’s probably a good thing service animals are trained to prepare for every situation, because one woman put one dog to the test.

DEAR ABBY: Our daughter is celebrating her 50th birthday next month. Her husband, “Ben,” is throwing her a surprise party at a restaurant. We know because he has asked us to watch and feed the grandkids, who are in their teens. We have been taking care of the grandkids since they were born and have them anywhere from two to seven days a week, sometimes 24 hours a day, when their parents want a vacation without them. Over the years we have chauffeured them to doctor appointments, hair appointments, to and from school, sports functions, etc. Ben says he wants to make the party for adults only. I have mixed feelings about it. I feel left out because, after all, she is our daughter. Am I wrong? My
A Huntington Beach police officer was captured on video Friday morning as he struggled with a suspect in a convenience store parking lot and then shot the man multiple times, fatally wounding him. Bystander video of the incident posted on social media showed the officer struggling with the man in front of a 7-Eleven store and the man pulling an object from the officer’s utility belt. The officer then unholstered his pistol, moved quickly away and began firing. The videos show the man standing, turning and hunching his shoulders as the sound of up to seven gunshots can be heard.

Eagles (1-1) vs. Giants (0-2) 1 p.m. on FOX Eagles -6 The Eagles try to jump out to a 2-0 start in NFC East play Sunday but host a desperate Giants squad whose season is already on the line in Week 3. New York's record is in danger of falling to 0-3, which would seriously cripple whatever playoff hopes the franchise has. This is as close to must-win as an NFL game gets in September. However, the league's 30th-ranked scoring offense will be searching for answers against a hostile Eagles defense at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles enter the week with a 1-1 record after a tough loss in Kansas City. A win would not only push the club back above .500 on the year but also keep them ahead of the
Saturday morning, President Donald Trump attempted to rescind a White House invitation he apparently had never extended, when he tweeted that Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry was no longer welcome to make the customary visit to celebrate the team’s NBA championship.
Jack is a small white dog who lives in Mexico City and has been missing since a magnitude 7.1 earthquake startled both humans and their pets when it struck early Tuesday afternoon. “I got lost in the earthquake!!!” a sign with his picture taped to a tree exclaims. Around Mexico’s capital are scattered signs for missing pets, mostly dogs, who their owners believe got scared and escaped in the chaotic moments after the devastating quake. Rescuers have found some skittishly wandering the streets and taken them to shelters. They know they are someone’s pet because they are clean, friendly and appear well nourished. “When a dog has been in the streets for a long time they are dirty and very thin,” said Silvia Garcia, the owner of an animal shelter that has taken in seven dogs since the quake. “These dogs are well taken care of.” No one knows for certain how many pets are missing but many of Mexico City’s hardest-hit areas are filled with dog-friendly restaurants, parks and upscale groomers. A video of rescuers pulling a Golden Retriever from the rubble of a fallen building went viral the day of the quake. Trained search and rescue dogs are helping volunteers search for signs of life. Countless other animals have had to flee with their owners from buildings still in danger of collapse. (AP) See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Twitter and Tumblr.

Update, September 22, 2017: If you live in any of the nine states that have driver's licenses that aren't compliant with the REAL ID federal security requirements, you'll want to start your passport application process long before the January 22, 2018 deadline arrives. In fact, the next two months are the ideal time for applying for a passport. According to the U.S. Department of State, October and November have the least amount of passport applications. Plus, if you apply then, you're more likely to get your passport back earlier in the estimated return window, which is typically 4-6 weeks.

On Friday and Saturday, Donald Trump lashed out at two notable sports stars who have been critical of him: Colin Kaepernick and Stephen Curry. It started on Friday night, Sept. 22, when President Trump called out NFL players like Colin Kaepernick who protest racial injustice and police brutality in America by taking a knee during the national anthem. "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners - when somebody disrespects our flag - to say, 'Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's fired!'" Trump shouted. Trump was speaking at a campaign rally in Huntsville, AL, for Republican Luther Strange, who's running for senator in the state. Trump's comments were quickly
