Trees in background near Mirror Lake which may be cut down to improve the view at California's Yosemite National Park on July 20, 2011. Officials are proposing to cut down hundreds, perhaps thousands, of trees in Yosemite Valley as part of an effort to improve the views of the park's famed waterfalls and granite walls. The idea is that "viewshed" is an important resource to be protected, just as the park protects wildlife and other natural features.

Workers harvest cotton Saturday, July 30, 2011, near Corpus Christi, Texas. Hopes that Tropical Storm Don could help ease the drought in Texas have evaporated with the little rain that did fall. The National Weather Service says the storm dropped less than an inch of rain before its remnants passed into northern Mexico. Forecasts for the rest of the weekend are hot, sunny and dry with only a chance of showers. Still, the relatively light rain came as a relief for cotton growers, who are in the middle of their harvest.

Waving his arms like a marionette gone wild. Choreographed chaos, really. Every defense is a matrix, and no one in football solves them like this year's Most Valuable Player.

A supporter of Guatemala's presidential candidate for the ruling party 'National Unity of Hope' Sandra Torres, shouts slogans during a campaign rally in Guatemala City, Sunday, July 17, 2011. Torres recently divorced Guatemala's President Alvaro Colom and Guatemalan law forbids close relatives of the president from running for office. A court's decision on July 12 upheld a lower-court ruling that the presidential couple's divorce was a ruse aimed at getting around the law. Torres' last legal recourse is to appeal to the country's highest court to allow her on the ballot. Guatemala will hold general elections Sept. 11.
