1️⃣ Historic deal: Caitlin Clark has a new achievement that hasn’t been accomplished since Michael Jordan. The WNBA star signed a multiyear deal with the league’s official basketball supplier, making her the first female athlete to have her own collection with Wilson.

2️⃣ Overtourism: A small Japanese town put up a barrier to block an Instagrammable view of Mount Fuji. The photo spot became so popular with visitors that it was causing problems for locals.

3️⃣ Oppressive heat: As vast parts of Florida sweltered over the weekend, a South Florida TV meteorologist criticized the state’s new “Don’t Say Climate Change” law and urged his viewers to vote.

4️⃣ Prized possession: The world’s most expensive feather sold at a New Zealand auction, smashing estimates. It came from a long-extinct bird last officially spotted in the early 20th century.

5️⃣ Celestial connection: Is there a link between Stonehenge and the moon? This summer, archaeologists are using a little-known lunar phenomenon to investigate as part of their work to understand why the monument was built.
