FILE - In this July 24, 2018 file photo, German tourists Stephanie Schultz, left, photographs Kai Rudolph, right, along the Merced River in Yosemite Valley as smoke from the Ferguson Fire hangs in the air, in Yosemite National Park, Calif. Yosemite National Park will reopen Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018, 14 days after a wildfire choked the park with smoke at the peak of tourist season. Park spokesman Scott Gediman said Friday, Aug. 10, visitors should expect limited hours and visitor services as the park returns to normal. The scenic Yosemite Valley and other areas have been closed since July 25 along with hundreds of campsites and hotels. Though the blaze didn't reach the heart of the valley, it burned in remote areas of the park about 250 miles (400 kilometers) from San Francisco, making roads inaccessible and polluting the air with smoke.

FILE - This March 27, 2008, file photo, shows the Pentagon in Washington. The Defense Department must improve the way it responds to child-on-child sexual assault at military bases in the U.S. and abroad as part of a sweeping new law President Donald Trump signed Monday, Aug. 13, 2018. While the Pentagon began addressing sexual assault in the ranks a decade ago, an Associated Press investigation revealed that similar reports involving military kids got lost in a dead zone of justice. Child offenders were rarely held accountable _ even when they confessed _ and victims often received no counseling or other help. Under the new law, more than 70,000 students in Pentagon-run schools now receive the same legal protections as their U.S. public school counterparts. The schools also must overhaul their system for tracking and addressing assault allegations. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
