The Senate is passing a landmark same-sex marriage bill. The Respect for Marriage Act was passed on Tuesday afternoon, when 12 Republican Senators voted along with Democrats to advance the bill, which recognizes gay marriage nationwide. The Respect For Marriage Act is now headed to the House, which is expected to pass it, before heading to President Biden's desk.        It's on to the Round of 16 for the U.S. men's soccer team. They beat Iran one-to-nothing today in their final group game at the World Cup in Qatar. The only goal was scored by Christian Pulisic [[ poo-lis-ick ]], who was subbed out at halftime after injuring himself on the play. The team will face The Netherlands on Saturday, beginning at 10 a.m Eastern time.       A man who helped lead last year's January 6th Capitol Riot is guilty of sedition. Stewart Rhodes led a far-right wing militia called The Oath Keepers. They plotted to stop the certification of the electoral college after the 2020 election.       The U.S. is proposing an interim solution to the Jackson water crisis. The Justice Department said in a statement it filed a proposal to appoint a third-party manager to stabilize the Mississippi city's public drinking water system. It's meant to work for now while the Mississippi Department of Health uses federal resources to solve Jackson's water crisis long-term.        The market is failing to bounce back after yesterday's slide. At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained three points to 33-852. The S&P 500 dropped by six points to 39-57. The Nasdaq lost 65 points to 10-983.       Twitter is no longer stopping misinformation about COVID. A new update as of last week has the company not removing or tagging misleading information about the pandemic. The social media platform's new CEO Elon Musk has talked about his commitment to free speech on Twitter.
