COLLUSION. Robert Mueller planning to accelerate probe: “Mueller and his team of prosecutors and investigators have an eye toward producing conclusions — and possible indictments — related to collusion by fall, said the person, who asked not to be identified. He’ll be able to turn his full attention to the issue as he resolves other questions, including deciding soon whether to find that Trump sought to obstruct justice.”

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus. “It wasn’t hard to spot the men from the chorus; they were the ones wearing purple T-shirts with the name of the organization emblazoned across their chests. But otherwise, they blended in with their fellow performers as choir conductors Mack Wilberg and Ryan Murphy led them through segments of songs to be performed at Monday night’s concert, the fourth stop of the choir’s 2018 Classic Coast Tour.”
JAMAL JORDAN. Photographer seeks to bring people of color into the imagery of queer life. “As a visual journalist, I believe pictures can connect with people in a way that other forms of media can’t.

Drone delivery service raises $16 million. “Matternet’s technology and proven track record make the development of a safe, global autonomous air mobility system a near-term reality,” Boeing HorizonX Ventures Managing Director Brian Schettler said in a statement. “Between the company’s success in Switzerland and being selected by the FAA to test unmanned aerial networks in the U.S., we are excited to work together to reimagine how the world connects and shape the next generation of transportation solutions.”
