From warehouses to office space, real-estate markets are getting turned upside down. These are the new winners and losers.

Offices, hotels, and malls were emptied by the coronavirus. Even as they reopen, the disruption has many thinking we're looking at a new normal for how we occupy space.  Big firms are rethinking office needs — and some commercial real-estate deals are being put on ice as financing dries up.  A surge in e-commerce, meanwhile, is fueling demand for warehouse and cold-storage space from companies like Amazon.  For more stories like this, sign up here for our Wall Street Insider newsletter.

A US Air Force Pilot is taking on AI in a virtual dogfight — here’s how to watch it

An AI-controlled fighter jet will battle a US Air Force pilot in a simulated dogfight next week — and you can watch the action online. The clash is the culmination of DARPA’s AlphaDogfight competition, which the Pentagon’s “mad science” wing launched to increase trust in AI-assisted combat. DARPA hopes this will raise support for using algorithms in simpler aerial operations, so pilots can focus on more challenging tasks, such as organizing teams of unmanned aircraft across the battlespace.

Alexander: Sparks’ Seimone Augustus is on point in first game against her old team

Sparks’ coach Derek Fisher knows something about the stress of returning to face a former team, going back to his own NBA days. So if Seimone Augustus had any nervousness or apprehension about facing her former team Sunday, she was in the right place. Turns out, if she had any she didn’t let on. And none of it fazed her or her Los Angeles teammates, who withstood a third-quarter run from the Minnesota Lynx and went on to roll past their rivals, 97-81, in the WNBA’s bubble in Bradenton, Fla. Augu...

Alexander: Former Cal star Collin Morikawa is in the hunt on final day

Under normal conditions, maybe Collin Morikawa would have a home course advantage, or at least home gallery advantage, going into Sunday’s final round of the PGA Championship on San Francisco’s TPC Harding Park layout. Morikawa was a four-time All-American and Pac-12 player of the year at Cal, just across the Bay Bridge. He’d played Harding Park maybe 10 to 15 times before, so he knows the layout, knows where the clubhouse and driving range are, and doesn’t need directions to get there. That exp...

Trump may have unwittingly cost himself one of his biggest donors

Shorthanded Sparks can’t stop Aces down the stretch

The Las Vegas Aces left the Sparks frustrated Friday, fending off Derek Fisher’s shorthanded squad, 86-82, in a back-and-forth affair in the WNBA bubble in Brandenton, Florida. The Sparks missed veterans Nneka Ogwumike, who was nursing a minor hamstring injury, and Seimone Augustus, who alerted the coaching staff as the game was starting that she wasn’t 100%. And although Candace Parker and Chelsea Gray offered their typically stout production and Sydney Wiese did her best to fill in as an honor...

Coronavirus testing is dropping in US, even as deaths mount

By MATTHEW PERRONE, NICKY FORSTER and MICHELLE LIU | Associated Press U.S. testing for the coronavirus is dropping even as infections remain high and the death toll rises by more than 1,000 a day, a worrisome trend that officials attribute largely to Americans getting discouraged over having to wait hours to get a test and days or weeks to learn the results.
