This undated photo provided by the Kraft Heinz Company shows a person wearing a "Miracle Whip" shirt. The mayor of Mayo, Fla., a tiny town of less than 1,500 residents, located where Florida's Panhandle morphs into a peninsula, is announcing Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, that the city is switching its name to "Miracle Whip."

Hurricane Harvey roared onto the Texas shore nearly a year ago, but it was a slow, rainy roll that made it a monster storm. Federal statistics show some parts of the state got more than 5 feet of rain in five days. Harvey killed dozens and swamped a section of the Gulf Coast that includes Houston, the nation's fourth largest city, causing billions of dollars in damage. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)

Supporters of Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa celebrate in Harare, Friday, August, 24, 2018. Zimbabwe's constitutional court on Friday unanimously upheld Mnangagwa's narrow victory in last month's historic election after the opposition alleged vote-rigging, saying "sufficient and credible evidence" had not been produced. That means the inauguration will be held within 48 hours, likely on Sunday, as Zimbabwe moves into a new era after Robert Mugabe's 37-year rule.(AP Photo/Tsvangirayi Mukwazhi)
