A new Missouri bill takes Florida's controversial Parental Rights in Education law, dubbed the "Don't Say Gay" law, even further. The bill says that "no nurse, counselor, teacher, principal, contracted personnel, or other administrative official at a public or charter school shall discuss gender identity or sexual orientation with a minor student" unless they're a licensed mental health care provider and have a guardian's permission. The Missouri bill goes further than the Florida law, which restricts classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity through kindergarten to grade 3, by not specifying an age group and explicitly barring discussions on these topics.
Active volcanoes are proving to be a hot commodity in the global race to transform to renewable energy as regions all over the world that reside near these natural wonders work to harness their heat. Geothermal energy, the process of using the heat from the inner cores of the earth to create power, is one of the most sustainable forms of energy, experts told ABC News. There are virtually no carbon emissions from this process once the infrastructure is in place, other than the diesel-powered pump required to bring the water and steam to the surface, Pete Stelling, a retired geology professor formerly at Western Washington University, told ABC News.

President Joe Biden stood at the lectern in front of Congress to deliver his second State of the Union address in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday night -- a speech in front of the nation that saw him plead for bipartisan cooperation amid both cheers and jeers from his legislative branch colleagues. For much of the night, President Biden was on the offensive. One of the night's more contentious moments came when Biden was discussing the debt ceiling and the White House's disagreements with Republicans on government borrowing and spending.
Authorities were first notified of the incident at approximately 4 p.m. on Tuesday when officials from the Nash County Sheriff’s Office were notified of a juvenile who had been brought into the emergency room with severe injuries and was dead upon arrival at Nash UNC Healthcare in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, about 50 miles east of Raleigh. Deputies and detectives from the Nash County Sheriff’s Office immediately responded to the hospital to further investigate the cause of death and it was determined that the 8-year-old girl lived in the 5000 block of Dutchman Road in Nashville, North Carolina, only several miles away from the hospital. “Based on the investigation, it was determined that the 8-year old juvenile was beaten so severe by the Grandmother that she died from the injuries,” Nash County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement announcing the death of the young girl.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday delivered his second State of the Union address, balancing a push for bipartisanship in a divided Washington and advocacy for his own policies heading into next year's election. Standing in front of Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. -- a visual reminder of the back-and-forth in store for at least the next two years -- Biden drew applause lines for pleas for cooperation and heckles over thrown elbows for Republican policies.
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James set the record for most career points in NBA history Tuesday, toppling Hall of Famer and fellow Laker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Late in the third quarter during their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, James scored his 36th point of the night, for a career total of 38,388 points. Abdul-Jabbar -- who was in attendance at Tuesday's game -- set the record April 5, 1984, and increased the record total to 38,387 points by the time he stepped away from the game five years later.
Tuesday night brought touches of defiance as well as conciliation from President Joe Biden -- and a call for unity amid signs pointing toward anything but, up to and including among Republicans who grew rowdy at times in response. It shaped an unusual State of the Union address that comes at an uncertain moment for the president and for the nation. Just past the midpoint of his first term, and just weeks after his 80th birthday, Biden made a broad and energetic case for doing more of what he's done to date, in much the way that he's done it.
President Joe Biden said America needs to "finish the job on police reform" during his State of the Union address Tuesday night. The anticipated comments come nearly a month after 29-year-old Tyre Nichols was beaten during a confrontation with Memphis police officers after he fled a traffic stop on Jan. 7. Five officers involved in the beating were fired and have been charged with second-degree murder in connection with Nichols' death.
A Massachusetts 32-year-old woman charged with strangling her three young children to death last month planned the killings, prosecutors argued on Tuesday, disclosing new details about the alleged actions of the woman, Lindsay Clancy, on the day of the incident. Prosecutors, trying to prove that Clancy was not mentally compromised on Jan. 24, the day of the deaths, described in court a day that suggested nothing out of the ordinary. Later that afternoon, according to prosecutors, Clancy, who appeared in court Tuesday via Zoom from her hospital bed, searched on Apple Maps the time it would take to drive to and from a restaurant in an adjacent town.
A former Brooklyn man, who became a sniper and weapons instructor for ISIS, was convicted Tuesday of providing material support to terrorism and other charges. Ruslan Maratovich Asainov, a U.S. citizen and former resident of Bay Ridge, was found guilty on all five counts, including charges that his material support for ISIS resulted in death. “As proven at trial, Asainov was a member of ISIS, a violent foreign terrorist organization, which has committed numerous acts resulting in the deaths of many U.S. citizens and others,” said United States Attorney Breon Peace.
One of the former Memphis officers charged in connection with Tyre Nichols' death took a photo of Nichols after he was handcuffed and texted it to multiple people, according to newly obtained state records. Demetrius Haley took two pictures on his personal cell phone of the "obviously injured" Nichols after he had been handcuffed, according to a Tennessee Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission document obtained by ABC News. The actions violated a Memphis Police regulation regarding confidential information, which states that officers cannot share information relating to official police matters "without prior approval or subpoena, except to authorized persons," according to the document.
