Five things you need to know
1. Costco is selling a diamond ring for a six-figure sum in Australia
It’s not being sold in bulk and it’s certainly not cheap, but it’s still being sold at Costco. Shoppers in Australia are a little confused over the 6.55-carat diamond ring that’s currently for sale at the retailing giant. It’s going for a cool $499,999.99 AUD, which is pretty much on par with CAD.

2. Manchester City wins the Premier League
There’s still a few weeks left in the season, but the Premier League has already crowned a new champion. Manchester City claimed that title on Sunday after cross-town rivals Manchester United, who were the only team left that could catch Manchester City, lost a shocker to West Bromwich Albion.
3. A 7-year-old scales Mount Kilimanjaro
If you had a lazy weekend, you may want to skip this part of five things. A 7-year-old Indian boy climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest peak in Africa at just shy of 6,000 metres. HE said “the day was rainy and the road was full of stone. I got afraid, I had leg pains, but I took a rest and completed it.”
4. Justin Bieber has himself a colourful time at Coachella
The first weekend of Coachella took place over the weekend and among those in attendance was Justin Bieber. The Canadian was wearing a colourful outfit that can only be described as amazing, and looked to be having a great time dancing around in the sunshine. He even met the internet’s latest darling, Yodel Boy.
