  • The Duchess of Sussex, aka Meghan Markle, gave birth to a boy this morning.

  • Following a near-perfect weekend, the Treasure Valley will again see plenty of sunshine today with highs in the mid- to upper-80s. More of the same is in the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday.

  • A Florida teenager got a harsh lesson in over-sharing on social media. CNN says that the daughter of a former Florida headmaster bragged that her father had won an $80,000 settlement against the school where he used to work. The girl went as far as to say that the money would help pay for her summer vacation in Europe. But it turns out that the teen's post violated the settlement's confidentiality agreement, meaning her father will forfeit all of the money.
  • Jessica Anderson, who works at The Royal London Hospital, wanted to make the record books by being the fastest woman to complete a marathon dressed as a nurse (yes, that's an actual record in the Guinness Book of World Records). But The Independent reports that Anderson was denied the record because her nurse uniform features trousers instead of a dress. Guinness rules stipulate that a nurse's uniform must include a dress, pinafore apron and nurse's cap. Guinness officials told Anderson that her scrubs bore too close a resemblance to a doctor's uniform.
