Falling aluminum prices dragged down profit and revenue at Alcoa Inc., contributing to third-quarter results that fell short of Wall Street expectations.
Alcoa has been reducing its vulnerability to low commodity prices by closing smelters and cutting costs in its mining and refining business.
Excluding restructuring costs and other items, Alcoa said adjusted earnings were 7 cents per share.
CEO Klaus Kleinfeld said the results, while down from a year ago, were encouraging given the volatile global economy, concern about the economy in China and developing countries, and weak aluminum prices.
The company has announced recent contracts to supply plane manufacturers Airbus and Lockheed with parts made from high-tech materials such as titanium.
— The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted quarterback Jameis Winston with the top pick, getting a Heisman Trophy winner and collegiate national champion.
— The Miami Dolphins signed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to a six-year, $114 million contract, landing the top free agent on the market.
The Dolphins can blame two fired coaches, Joe Philbin and defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle.
The Jaguars can blame two pivotal injuries, playing without tight end Julius Thomas and defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks.
The Buccaneers knew there would be some growing pains with the former Florida State star, but they also expected the offensive line would play better in front of him.
Second-year pro Mike Evans, who caught 68 passes for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns as a rookie, has yet to find the end zone.
Miami ranks last in the NFL in rushing defense, giving up 160.5 yards a game, and last with one sack despite the offseason addition of Suh.
The team lost defensive end Dante Fowler, the third overall pick in the draft, in the opening hour of rookie camp in May and have played the first four games without their top free agent acquisition, Thomas, and their best defensive lineman, Marks.
Coach Gus Bradley calls it the "race to maturity," and quarterback Blake Bortles, receiver Allen Robinson, running back T.
Officials are assessing the damage caused by a fire in Legislative Hall, and the building remains closed after a smoky fire forced its evacuation.

Gap shares fall on disappointing sales at Banana Republic
NEW YORK (AP) — Gap Inc. says the creative director for its Banana Republic brand is stepping down after 18 months in that role.
Webb, who was hired to re-energize the brand and is known for her oversized jackets, will transition into a creative adviser role "affording her more time to focus on her own collection," Gap said in a statement.
Last week, Gap announced that its Old Navy president Stefan Larsson, has resigned and is taking the CEO job at Ralph Lauren Corp.
The remnants of a tropical storm were expected to bring heavy rains and gusty winds to parts of southeast Alaska on Friday in what is a rare weather event.
Wind gusts in southern panhandle communities such as Ketchikan could reach up to 80 mph on Friday, with sustained winds between 30 and 40 mph, the agency said.
Shaun Baines, a weather service meteorologist in Anchorage, said El Nino provides a favorable environment for the formation of these types of tropical systems, though where they ultimately track depends on the weather patterns in place as they move out of the tropics.
