New York Governor Signs Law Authorizing Driver’s Licenses For Undocumented Immigrants

The state’s association of county clerks is against the measure. And some county clerks in upstate New York have threatened to disobey the law if Cuomo ultimately signs it. They have said they will refuse to issue the licenses or even notify ICE if an undocumented immigrant tries to apply for one.

"We have to write a law that does not have an unintended consequence, that's what the smart people are worried about."

10,000 Steps A Day? How Many You Really Need To Boost Longevity

The idea behind walking 10,000 steps per day was part of a marketing campaign for a pedometer. That number has never been scientifically tested. Walking is still great exercise, but you can reap the benefits even if you don't hit 10,000 steps per day.

Walking every day has been shown again and again to be important for staying healthy as you age. But how much do you need to walk to promote a long life?

'Completely Catastrophic': Flooding And Tariffs Causing Chaos For Farmers

On top of [the flooding], farmers are dealing with the effects of President Trump's ongoing trade dispute with China, and the prospects of a new one with Mexico.

"If you just had one individual [issue], farmers would take a loss but it probably wouldn't be all that bad," says Jeremy Ross, a soybean agronomist with the University of Arkansas' Division of Agriculture. "But then you start adding all these together and it just starts snowballing and it just becomes this big huge problem."

Weeks of rain across the Midwest and the Great Plains have kept many farmers from planting crops. On top of that, they are dealing with President Trump's ongoing trade dispute with China.

New York’s Governor: ‘I Plan To Run For A Fourth Term’

If Cuomo is re-elected, he'll be only the second person to win a fourth, four-year term as New York governor after Republican Nelson Rockefeller. Cuomo's father, the late Gov. Mario Cuomo, lost his bid for a fourth term.

Finding New Opportunity For Old Coal-Fired Power Plant Sites

"One of the first plans is for a stretch of about 219 acres of land along the Susquehanna River in the small central Pennsylvania town of Shamokin Dam.

Drive into town and you can’t miss the four, tall smoke stacks that rise from a huge brick building. It housed the plant’s steam generators, which produced electricity for more than six decades before the facility shut down in 2014.

These days there’s new activity at the site. On the north edge crews are laying a concrete foundation for a completely different kind of plant, a medical marijuana cultivating facility. It’s quite a shift for the typically sedate power generation business."

Coal-fired power plants keep closing and communities around the country must decide what to do with those sites. Pennsylvania has a plan, aiming to create new jobs where the old ones have been lost.

Democrats control both chambers of the state legislature, and many of them support the measure. Governor Cuomo has said he would sign the bill if it's passed. As a result, advocates say the aid-in-dying legislation has its best shot yet at becoming law.

Our Whitney Point Central School District SciGirls enjoyed a visit from role model Lisa Miner of Universal Instruments Corporation in Conklin, NY. She shared her career path, how programming has changed over her career and projects she has worked on. Our SciGirls asked questions and got their hands on some circuit boards. They were surprised how large the boards are before they are completely assembled for their final destinations. Our #GirlsInSTEM also benefitted from learning how technology drives so many facets of our lives giving these girls lots of career path opportunities in their futures. Thank you Lisa for inspiring our SciGirls!
