  • The U.S. is ramping up its nuclear arms arsenal.
  • Apple sold a record 10 million iPhone 6’s over the weekend.
  • More than 300,000 people marched for climate justice in New York City on Sunday. The U.N. climate summit begins today.
  • The first ever World Conference on Indigenous Peoples opens today at the United Nations.
  •  Texas Governor Rick Perry is using Joan Rivers’ death to stretch his anti-abortion agenda.
  • Omar Gonzalez, the military vet who was caught last week scaling the White House fence, has a story.  
  • ESPN published a timeline of the Ray Rice scandal. Biggest takeaway: The Ravens knew months ago what happened inside that elevator.
  • Facebook’s next target: drag queens.
  • funkgodjazz&medicine opened in Brooklyn over the weekend. Go see it.
