We begin Monday’s Pictures in the News with members of the Green Bay Packers football team taking part in the annual ritual of riding kids’ bicycles to training camp. On the East Coast, The U.S. Capitol looms in the background as the House and Senate are poised to vote on an agreement to extend the federal debt limit while enacting spending cuts.

Free-skier Ted Davenport of the United States crashes after launching off a drop during the World Heli Challenge Extreme Day at Mt. Albert in New Zealand; Muslim girls read the Koran on the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Beijing; and a diver feeds fish at the newly refurbished Sunshine Aquarium in Tokyo.

It’s summertime and heat relief is taking many forms around the world. Young boys lean over a giant sofa on the South Bank in London;  a teenager cools down in an outdoor bath in central Baghdad, where the government announced that Monday is an official holiday due to the hot weather; and sunbathers pack Gandia Beach in Valencia, Spain.

Add stops in Kenya, Germany and Austria to round out the report.

    Hello, I am a daily reader of the La Times. I really enjoy all the information you provide and how as an american citizen I can trust this newspaper magazine not to publish false information to the best of its abilities, I appreciate because in a day where false information is tossed around foolishly it is good to know that there is still a trustable newspaper supplier out there.
