That’s more than all of last year … Protesters plan to be on hand when former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner is released from just three months in jail on a rape conviction … Samsung is recalling its new Galaxy Note 7 smartphones because some of them are catching fire … Hurricane Hermine is a tropical storm now, and it’s pounding Florida’s Gulf Coast … The Cubs beat the Giants … the White Sox lost in Minnesota … and the Bears won a preseason game in Cleveland.
