  1. We're just a day away from the highly anticipated reopening of the Ford Presidential Museum, and there's a special gala planned for Monday.

It's happening at the JW Marriott in downtown Grand Rapids.

Family members of the late president Gerald Ford will be there including his children.

Former vice president Dick Cheney, who was a member of President Ford's cabinet, is also expected to speak.

The museum officially reopens Tuesday with a re-dedication ceremony, following a multi-million dollar expansion and renovation.

2. Hillary Clinton is one step closer to clinching the democratic nomination.

She claimed victory in Puerto Rico following the primary election there.

Clinton is not expected to win all 60 delegates that were at stake Sunday, which would have put her over the top in the nomination battle against rival Bernie Sanders.

She remains shy of the 2,383 she needs to win the democratic nomination outright.

Five more states will be voting on Tuesday. If that puts her at the right number, her nomination would become official during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

3. If you and the family are flying out of town this summer through Delta, you're about to get an upgrade.

The carrier will soon begin offering in-flight entertainment free of charge on equipped domestic and international flights.

Previously, Delta only offered a portion of its entertainment options for free on domestic flights.

Delta says the free entertainment will start July 1 on about 90 percent of its planes.

Movies, shows, music, and games will be available on seat-back screens or through your mobile devices with on board Wi-Fi.

4. If you've ever felt the need to face-palm, shrug your shoulders, or fist bump while sending a text, the group that oversees emojis is making it possible.

It's approved 72 new emojis for different platforms.

These are mock ups of what one website thinks they will look like.

The new icons also include a shark, bacon, pancakes, and a fencer.

According to Forbes, they're expected to be released sometime between September and December.
