Tina Fey and Amy Phoeler are superheroes to many comedy fans and now they have the action figures to prove it. A toy company is making figurines of the comedic duo, complete with a fold-out diorama of the “Weekend Update” news desk. They will be released exclusively at San Diego comic-con this July.

#4: New Opening at One World Trade Center
Ever wonder what it feels like to be on top of the world? Now, you can experience it.
Nearly 14 years after 9/11, the observatory at One World Trade Center opens to the public on Friday.  Today, thousands of workers who helped build the nation’s tallest skyscraper will get an early look from a whopping 102 stories up. Guests will be able to observe a panoramic view of the city and its most iconic sites from 1,250 feet high.

#3: Overdraft Fees
You aren’t alone if you’ve ever been hit with an overdraft fee from your bank. America’s three biggest banks,JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo made more than $1 billion dollars on overdraft fees in just the first three months of the year!  The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is currently examining overdraft fees, especially when someone is charged multiple fees a day. The typical overdraft fee is $35.

#2: FAA Study
The FAA is working to study the emotional and mental health of U.S. commercial pilots teaming up with the commercial aviation and medical communities for the study. They will look at ways to evaluate pilot health, reporting emotional and mental health issues, and the barriers to reporting these issues. The group may recommend changes to FAA medical methods. Pilot fitness has come to the forefront following the recent crash of a GermanWings plane in the Alps.

#1: No More Execution
Execution is no longer an option for people convicted of heinous crimes in Nebraska. Lawmakers confirmed their decision to repeal the death penalty Wednesday, when they voted to override a veto from Governor Pete Ricketts.  The debate over killing the death penalty law went back and forth for two and a half hours in front of a packed chamber; two Senators announced they changed their minds and flipped to vote to support the Governor. In the end it wasn’t enough Governor Rickett’s supporters fell short by one vote.
