Authorities are telling people in Florida and Alabama not to call 9-1-1 unless it's a life-threatening emergency. Rescue crews are still taking place more than 24 hours after Hurricane Sally hit. About 420-thousand homes in both states are without power.       President Trump is pledging to protect Mount Rushmore amid what he calls a "radical movement" to destroy American statues and memorial sites. While speaking at the National Archives, Trump also accused the left of launching a "vicious and violent" campaign against law enforcement. He said children are taught "hateful lies" about U.S. history in classrooms.       Ice cream maker Blue Bell has to pay 17-point-two-five-million-dollars in criminal penalties following a listeria outbreak in 2015. The outbreak cased ten cases in four states, including three deaths in Kansas. This is the largest criminal penalty following a conviction in a food safety case. When Texas state officials first notified Blue Bell that its ice cream tested positive, the company did not recall the products, it just removed them from shelves.        Nike's Colin Kaepernick "Icon" jersey is sold out. The"number 7 jersey" sold out just one minute after it went on sale. The release of the jersey marked four years since the former NFL quarterback dropped to one knee during the national anthem as he protested systemic racism and social injustice.        Burger King is printing the Whopper's ingredients right on its wrapper. The chain is showing the burger doesn't have artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Burger King is planning to do this to its entire menu by 2021.
