Mayor Emanuel is defending his plan to hike water and sewer bills to shore up the city’s largest pension fund … He helped to formally name Jackson Park as the site for the Obama Presidential Library … Republican party leaders are reportedly moving to re-boot their presidential nominee … even as Donald Trump claims his campaign has never been more unified, and his campaign donations are up … Security is high in London … after a knife attack killed one woman and injured five others … Federal researchers are conducting their first clinical trial of a Zika vaccine … Protests greeted the Olympic torch as it was carried through a poor neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro … The Cubs swept the Marlins; the White Sox lost in Detroit … It’s going to be sunny, hot and humid today – and they’ve called an Air Pollution Action Day, which means take it easy.


Everything you need to know to start your day.
