Ruth Bader Ginsburg has inspired not just one but two movies this year. Fresh off her acclaimed documentary, the Supreme Court Justice is getting the Hollywood treatment in On the Basis of Sex. Watch the trailer—starring Felicity Jones as RBG—then scroLl down for more news.

MEET TODAY'S CLOVER, @hero.magnus: Hero is, quite frankly, our hero. She's a Yale-bound freshman and A+ singer (listen to her single below!).

😳 Yesterday after his ~friendly~ meeting with Vladimir Putin in Finland, Trump told reporters that he trusted the dictator's assurance that Russia didn’t meddle in the 2016 election over America’s own intelligence agencies. Did he forget they found ample evidence of Russia’s interference? Trump didn’t only turn against the FBI; he *also* blamed the U.S. for Russian aggression, leaving both political parties in total horrified shock. Republican Jeff Flake called it “shameful," and Democrat Nancy Pelosi said it’s a "sad day for America." Even Trump pal Paul Ryan agreed. No wonder #TreasonSummit was trending…

♀ If today’s political situation makes you feel angry and skeptical of old white dudes in suits, same. Thankfully, the new guard of female candidates is alllll about bucking the norm. They’re showing tattoos—previously a no-no—and talking about topics like breastfeeding, their student loans, and #MeToo experiences. Just take Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who recently won the New York election with her boundary-pushing campaign (and viral videos). As one expert noted, “These different women who are running, and the way they’re running, is going to change politics forever.” Hopefully!

💸 When the world seems as bleak as it is right now (see above), treating yourself can be mighty tempting. But a self-care splurge here and a bad-day reward there really adds up. According to new research, Americans spend $143,280 to treat themselves in a lifetime, which works out to about $200 a month. Interestingly, most people would rather splurge on IRL experiences over fancy possessions—and it’s probably no coincidence that those surveyed said they feel way more guilt about buying things vs. *doing* things. Something to consider before your next splurge...

💦If you’ve noticed that your brain is just not doing what it’s supposed to do this summer, you should chill out (literally). Science says it’s the weather’s fault, not yours. An appropriately-timed new study found that students who lived in air-conditioned buildings got better grades *and* answered questions faster than students stuck in steamy, AC-free buildings. Considering the heat advisory currently plaguing the Northeast and beyond, we should probably all give up and seek refuge in the nearest body of water, asap.
