    What does home mean to you? That’s the question behind a new interactive exhibit at the High Museum in Atlanta. On the piazza, or open plaza, outside of the High a team of museum employees and volunteers bolted together the frames of what look like giant, red Monopoly houses without walls.

As she took the stage that night, her supporters pointed to the fact that Georgia currently has no female representation in Washington. Emily Pelton from Atlanta is one of those supporters.

    Early voting numbers for the July 22 runoff are in. The majority of ballots have been received, though mail-in absentee ballots can still be cast. Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp said in a statement Monday that 159,152 ballots have already been cast. That number includes 134,267 ballots in which people voted in person plus 24,885 mail-in ballots returned. Kemp says that number is about 13 percent of eligible voters. He predicts the Republican runoff could see double digit turnout due to higher profile races.

    The U.S. men’s soccer team may be out of the World Cup, but that didn’t stop legions of American soccer fans from filling Brazilian stadiums to catch all the action. The U.S. had a fairly successful run, beating Ghana and tying with Portugal to survive what many deemed the 2014 World Cup’s “Group of Death.” Belgium eventually sent the team home in the Round of 16, but for many Americans, the excitement of soccer won’t go away with the 2014 World Cup. Soccer won’t replace the NFL or college football anytime soon, but its popularity is rising quickly in the U.S.
