Thailand cave rescue: Search teams unsure how to free trapped boys:

The initial relief that greeted the dramatic discovery of the trapped Thai soccer team has given way to concern, as rescuers begin the difficult task of attempting to free the 12 boys and their coach from deep inside the flooded cave network.

Video shared by the Thai Navy SEALs shows the boys, who were found alive by British divers in the early hours of Monday evening, huddled together on a small patch of dry ground, surrounded by water in a cramped, pitch-black chamber.

“It is estimated that the boys are around two kilometers (1.2 miles) into the cave and somewhere between 800 meters to one kilometer (0.6 miles) below the surface,” said Bill Whitehouse, vice chairman, British Cave Rescue Council, whose organization has helped spearhead the search of the Tham Luang Nang Non cave system in northern Thailand.

Americans want to keep Roe v. Wade, poll finds ahead of Supreme Court nomination:

Voters overwhelmingly agree with the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.

More than 6 in 10 voters — 63% — agree with the landmark Supreme Court decision on abortion, while 31% disagree. There’s a surprisingly small gender divide on the issue, with women agreeing on the decision at 65% and men just four points behind.
Republican voters are the only group in which a majority disagree with the decision — by a margin of 58% to 36%.

Someone bought $1 million in Toys ‘R’ Us toys right before stores went out of business:

An anonymous shopper gave Toys ‘R’ Us a parting gift just before its stores around the country prepared to close their doors for the last time.

It was a gift so big that a Raleigh, North Carolina, store didn’t even open for its last scheduled day on Friday.
The price tag: $1 million, which employees say the buyer spent on whatever toys were left in the store, according to CNN affiliate WNCN.
And the toys’ destination: into the arms of needy children, WNCN reported.

Warriors Redefine the Superteam Again with DeMarcus Cousins Signing:

Apparently, the Golden State Warriors weren’t already good enough.

After using four All-Stars to win a third title in the last four years by sweeping LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, they made yet another power play in free agency to steal the spotlight away from a certain four-time MVP and his new fit with the Los Angeles Lakers. DeMarcus Cousins is now aboard on a one-year deal worth $5.3 million, as first reported by Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania, to give the team an All-Star at every one of the five traditional positions.

Ant-Man and the Wasp’ is fun, but doesn’t have much bite:

Tilted in a big way toward comedy, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” offers Marvel an opportunity to show off its lighter side, after the operatic grandeur of “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Black Panther.” It is also, on most levels, less appealing than its predecessor, a generally fun movie that doesn’t possess much bite.

The first “Ant-Man” worked extremely well as an origin story, layering and humanizing the mythology by having a reluctant new hero, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), pick up the mantle from the originator of the super-suit, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas).
As the title advertises, the second film pairs Scott — after explaining his absence from “Infinity War,” and the fallout from “Captain America: Civil War” –with Pym’s daughter, Hope (Evangeline Lilly), who has her own micro-tech outfit with a few upgrades, including wings and sting-like blasters.
