A person walks across a rainbow pedestrian crossing on a road in West HollywoodThe top U.S. court on Monday turned down Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis' request for an emergency order allowing her to continue to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples while she appeals a federal judge's order requiring her to do so. Davis' office rejected requests for marriage licenses for the first two same-sex couples to enter the courthouse on Tuesday, the Washington Post reported. Davis has refused to issue any marriage licenses since the U.S. Supreme Court in June ruled that same-sex couples had the right to marry under the U.S. Constitution.

Obama pushes for more U.S. ice-breaking might in Arctic

Obama delivers remarks to the GLACIER Conference at the Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, AlaskaBy Roberta Rampton ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Tuesday will propose a faster timetable for buying a new heavy icebreaker for the U.S. Arctic, where quickly melting sea ice has spurred more maritime traffic, and the United States has fallen far behind Russian resources. Obama will say that the government should buy a heavy icebreaker by 2020 - a year when routine Arctic marine transit is expected - instead of the previous goal of 2022. The White House said move is required for safety in the changing Arctic - and to keep up with Russia.
