1.      The beginning of a new era has dawned in "The Land" after five-time All-Star Kevin Love signed a four-year contract extension Tuesday. The deal is reportedly worth $120 million over the four years, bringing his total contract to five years, $145 million.  Was it a good move by the Cavs?  Would you like to see Love on the side of the Sherwin Williams building?

2.   Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones turns 75-years-old tomorrow.  Their list of hits songs includes “Paint It Black”, “Gimmie Shelter”, “Angie”, “Satisfaction”, “Wild Horses”, “Sympathy For The Devil”, “Start Me Up”, “Miss You”, “Brown Sugar”, “Jumpin Jack Flash”, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, “Honky Tonk Woman” and many more.  Do you have a favorite Stones song?  Why is their music popular across generations?

3.      The police were called on two moms who were breastfeeding at a pool in Mora, Minnesota. Stephanie Buchanan and Mary Davis, who are sisters-in-law, took their kids to cool off at the Mora Aquatic Center last week. When the women started breastfeeding, a woman asked them to cover up because her son was swimming nearby but they refused saying state law protects them. Buchanan posted about the incident on Facebook and organized a nurse-in at a public area near the pool last Saturday.  How do you feel about women who breastfeed in public?

4.      Google Docs will start correcting your grammar.  The new "grammar suggestions" will suggest and correct your language mishaps.  The user experience will be similar to Grammarly and Microsoft Word's "Editor pane."  The service will roll out to Google's GSuite business customers first and will expand to regular users soon.  Do Americans need help with their grammar?

5.      The Indians made a move last week acquiring relievers Brad Hand and Adam Cimper from the Padres last week.  With the training deadline just days away, do you think they will continue to wheel and deal? 

6.      The Wall Street Journal and NBC News released poll results that show President Trump’s job approval rating is at an all-time high of 45%. The numbers show that Trump’s approval rating among Republicans stands at 88% with 50% of voters saying he has handled the economy better than other major issues. On the flip side, the President has higher disapproval numbers on border security and immigration, trade, U.S. and Russia relations and immigrant families at the border. When it comes to immigration, trade, and relations with Russia, how's the commander in chief doing? 

7.      The Department of Agriculture says the U.S. has too much meat. According to the latest data, meat producers are sitting on a 2.5 billion pound meat surplus, and are running out of cold storage space to keep it in. The USDA also claims dairy farmers are sitting on a 1.3 billion-pound cheese surplus.  Do we need to eat more cheeseburgers?

8.      The New York Daily News is cutting their news team in half.  The Daily News said in a statement, “We are reducing the size of the editorial team by approximately 50 percent and re-focusing much of our talent on breaking news -- especially in areas of crime, civil justice and public responsibility. We know our readers look to us for a unique point of view, and we believe these topics offer our best opportunity to differentiate our reporting. We will, of course, continue to cover local news, sports and other events, but our approach will evolve as we adapt to our current environment."  What are your thoughts on what’s happening at the New York Daily News?
