The choice for Almanac was unusual, recalling the murder on 15 July 1997 of Giovanni Maria "Gianni" Versace. Implicitly, there are intellectual property themes here, both as to the mark Versace and as to inventions. Of the latter, from wikipedia

Among Versace's most famous innovations was his 1982 invention of a type of super-light chainmail called 'Oroton', which became a signature material in his outfits. His suits were inspired more by his experience in female tailoring, departing from masculine Savile Row models by crafting suits which accentuated the male form and "insisted on men as sex objects.

Sunday Morning also noted the deaths of Tab Hunter and Nancy Sinatra, Senior.

The Milepost recalled the death of Emmett Till in 1955, and noted the case had been re-opened.

Sunday Morning recycled an October 2017 story on Peter Bellerby and globe making.

Of Jennifer Garner, CBS noted she attended Denison University in Granville, Ohio, where she changed her major from chemistry to theater, CBS did not note that, while growing up, she attended a local United Methodist Church every Sunday and went to Vacation Bible School. (see wikipedia)

The moment of nature feature was elephants in Tanzania.

The cover story was on iGen, and discussed the impact of the prevalence of smart phones on middle schoolers, including 8th graders.

There was an upbeat report on soccer (Axelrod) which did not mention the low tv ratings. From the LA Times:

The 48 group stage telecasts on Fox and FS1 averaged 2.069 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. That is down 42% from the 3.54 million average on ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC four years ago and down 15% from the 2.429 million average on ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC eight years ago.
