Health reporter Gregory Warner reports on the second day of Supreme Court hearings on the health care law. Why did Justices use the word 'broccoli' to describe the individual mandate? The Obama administration proposed the first federal limits on greenhouse gas emissions from new power plants. We hear about the new Facebook app EnemyGraph, which shows what you dislike.

From this Episode

Robots have come a long way -- from factories and into homes -- and jobs for robot makers and minders are on the upswing. Pictured here: Marion "Tank" Lefleur is the robo-receptionist at Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute.  He is a social robot, greeting and directing people to where they need to go.  If you ever meet him, be sure to ask about his love of David Bowie.
