3Thirty-eight emoji are being considered for release next year by the Unicode Consortium, the group overseeing emoji standards across platforms.

Among the other candidates on the list are bacon, a pregnant woman, a cowboy, a clown, avocado and a person taking a selfie.

The list of emoji making the final cut in this round will likely be released sometime next year. From there, Apple, Google and Microsoft, which oversee the three biggest mobile platforms, are free to put their own design touches on the emoji before deploying them to users.

4Weather officials say July was the planet’s warmest month on record, smashing old records.

And it’s almost a lock that this year will beat last year as the warmest year on record. July’s average temperature was 61.86 degrees Fahrenheit (16.58 Celcius) beating the previous global mark set in 1998 and 2010 by about one-seventh of a degree. That’s a large margin for weather records, with previous monthly heat records broken by a 20th of a degree or less.

5NASA says Internet reports that an asteroid will crash near Puerto Rico sometime between September 15th and 28th are false.

“There is no scientific basis —not one shred of evidence — that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth on those dates. Again, there is no existing evidence that an asteroid or any other celestial object is on a trajectory that will impact Earth. In fact, not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century. If there were any object large enough to do that type of destruction in September, we would have seen something of it by now.”
