List time's Instagram Facing hundreds of New York City's elite, House Speaker Paul Ryan poked fun at himself and the Catholic church at an annual charity dinner in New York on Oct. 19, 2017. The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner encourages speakers to "poke fun at a political issue, an opponent, or themselves," according to the program, the Associated Press reports. Ryan's top target? President Trump. He reminded dinner guests that it was Trump who offended attendees when he was there a year earlier. "Some said it was unbecoming of a public figure and they said that his comments were offensive. Well, thank God he's learned his lesson," Ryan deadpanned during his keynote address.

(Those who already have them can still use them, but new ones can't be sold.) Intense smog temporarily closed many schools following last year's Diwali celebrations and resulted in the ban.

List time's Instagram Former President Obama took the stage in Newark, N.J., on Oct. 19, 2017, for his first post-presidency campaign event: a canvas kickoff for Phil Murphy, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate for New Jersey, and Sheila Oliver, who is running as his lieutenant governor. Obama did not address President Trump's false accusation that he failed to call any Gold Star families during his time in the White House; he did not mention Trump or any member of Congress by name. He did however, disavow political divisiveness and deride what he coined backward looking policies. "Some of the politics now we... we thought we put that to bed," he said, to laughter from the audience. "That's folks looking... 50 years back. It's the 21st century, not the 19th century." He also carried a message to those who are disenfranchised with "how things are going" but didn't vote: "you cannot complain!" Video source: AP 1629426850005984215_5087794

List time's Instagram White nationalist Richard Spencer's speech at the University of Florida on Oct. 19, 2017, was disrupted by dozens of protesters who booed and chanted, "Go home, Spencer." Outside, hundreds of protesters gathered in opposition to the speech, holding signs and shouting, "We don't want your Nazi hate." The event was the latest example of a public university grappling with debates over free speech when it comes to visits from far-right speakers—and the ensuing protests. Spencer organized the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August that resulted in violence that left one woman dead. And clashes have erupted at his other campus events over the past year, including at Auburn University and Texas A&M University.

List time's Instagram During remarks in the Oval Office on Oct. 19, 2017, President Trump gave his administration a "10" on its handling of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Speaking with the island territory's governor, Ricardo Rosselló, at his side, Trump said he was satisfied with how emergency managers had handled the aftermath, despite widespread water and power shortages. "I'd say it was a 10," he told reporters, repeating twice that he would grade it a "10." The death toll from the hurricane is now at 48, with about 117 people still unaccounted for. Roughly 3 million Puerto Ricans, or more than 80% of the island's residents, still don't have power. Video source: CNN 1629328565542934261_5087794

List time's Instagram Civilians return to Raqqa, Syria, to collect some of their belongings on Oct. 18, 2017. One day after the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces declared victory over the Islamic State in its de facto capital, the city is an urban husk of hollow buildings and bodies lying in rubble-strewn streets. More than three years after ISIS seized a vast swath of Iraq and Syria and launched a global campaign of terror, the group is now on the brink of defeat as a conventional fighting force. In the wake of the battle, which began in June, the city is all but totally abandoned.

List time's Instagram The fall of Raqqa concludes a year of fighting for two key cities claimed by the Islamic State following its stunning conquest of territory in 2014. The assault by U.S.-backed Syrian militias began in June, around the time that Iraqi forces recaptured Mosul. The cities were twin symbols of the self-declared Caliphate, its base for operations and a destination for foreign recruits. Airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition devastated both cities; the destruction in Mosul was confined to specific neighborhoods but in Raqqa it is more complete, with nearly every building damaged or destroyed. In this scene on Oct. 18, 2017, photographed by @emanuelesatolli, a member of the Syrian Democratic Forces inspects an ISIS tunnel. The challenge of rebuilding the city will be immense, beginning with removing the vast obstacle course of booby traps, mines and unexploded ordinance left in the wake of the battle. TIME's Middle East Bureau Chief @jmalsin and photographer Emanuele Satolli (@emanuelesatolli) are reporting in what was once the militant group's de facto capital, now declared liberated by U.S.-backed Syrian forces.

List time's Instagram Everywhere in Raqqa, Syria, there are traces of an urban society that buckled under Islamic State rule and collapsed during the ferocious battle to reclaim it. Overturned cars protrude at odd angles in the street. An ATM sits ajar, its front blasted off the hinges by explosives. At a perfume cosmetics shop, a sign hangs in the window: "Men forbidden to enter," the sentence underlined three times. And here's the view on Oct. 18, 2017, in the clock tower square, where Islamic State fighters once held executions.

List time's Instagram Giving birth to her first child at home without medication was a foregone conclusion for Margaret Nichols (@magsnichols). The 40-year-old New York City meditation teacher became active in a Facebook group dedicated to home and water births. She rented an inflatable blue birthing tub made of phthalate-free vinyl. Practically all her friends had given birth at home. When Nichols went into labor last November, she felt elated, primed and cozy. She was surrounded by a midwife, a doula and her partner Jeff. But 30 hours later she was howling as she hurtled in her midwife's car toward a hospital. There, she accepted anesthesia, took a nap and gave birth to a healthy son, Bo, photographed here by @elinorcarucci. Back home, Nichols began breastfeeding. She hoped to nurse for two years, but after 5 months she had to start supplementing with donor milk and formula. The beginning of motherhood for Nichols was thus tainted by disappointment. "I prepared so much for the birth, but the one thing that's not talked about as much is how much support we need, and how vulnerable we are afterward," she says. Like millions of American moms, she had been bombarded by a powerful message: that she is built to build a human, that she will feel all the more empowered for doing so as nature supposedly intended and that the baby's future depends on it. A survey of 913 mothers commissioned by TIME and conducted by @surveymonkey found that half of all new mothers had experienced regret, shame, guilt or anger, mostly due to unexpected complications and lack of support. More than 70% felt pressured to do things a certain way. Call it the Goddess Myth, spun with a little help from basically everyone—doctors, activists, other moms.

List time's Instagram President Trump defended himself against reports on Oct. 18, 2017 that he told the widow of a slain American solider that her husband "knew what he signed up for." Trump dismissed Florida Rep. Frederica S. Wilson's account of the condolence call as "totally fabricated," saying "I did not say what she said." The White House said Trump called the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, a 25-year-old from Miami Gardens, Fla., who was among four Americans killed in an ambush in Niger earlier this month. Johnson's mother sided with Wilson, telling @washingtonpost she was there for the call between Trump and Johnson's widow, Myeshia Johnson, and that the president "did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband." The exchange came in the wake of Trump's remarks on Monday, when he was asked if he was going to call the families of those killed, before falsely claiming that former President Obama did not call the families of fallen soldiers while in office.
