Editor's note: This story discusses details that may not be suitable for children.

Fifteen years ago this week, Andrea Yates – a mom from a Houston suburb – methodically and systematically drowned all five of her children. The kids ranged in age from six months to seven years old.

From Texas Standard:

The court upheld an affirmative action program at the University of Texas at Austin, ending a legal battle that started in 2008.

In Fisher v. the University of Texas, Abigail Fisher, a white student, sued the university for using race as a factor in college admissions. The decision sets a national precedent, at least for the time being.

From Texas Standard:

The Supreme Court's 4-4 voting deadlock yesterday over President Barack Obama's executive order on immigration means the appeals court ruling stays – that is, the hold continues on the administration's order to shield millions of immigrants without U.S. documentation from deportation. It's as if, South Texas College of Law professor Charles "Rocky" Rhodes says, the Supreme Court never took up the issue at all.

What if scientists could predict what future diseases people might get based on the current diseases they have?  Much like Amazon trying to guess what products you’ll like based on what you’re currently browsing, researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio and the VA Hospital are using data analysis to predict the development of chronic disease.

San Antonio’s technology community is growing again.

Fresh off the heels of last week’s announcement of a new system of tech careers high schools set to open next year, tech partners today announced a new incubator aimed at shooting San Antonio to the top of the list of the nation’s leaders in cybersecurity technology and products.

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron was at his political peak just last year as he led his Conservative Party to an outright majority in Parliament for the first time in more than two decades, surpassing all the forecasts.

Today, his political career is effectively over, the result of another surprise at the ballot box — the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union.

President Obama is designating a new national monument around the Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement.

The Stonewall National Monument in New York City will be the first addition to the National Park System specifically highlighting the history of the LGBT community.

From fun at the Guadalupe to political humor to Chubby Checker--the weekend is full of fun.  On Saturday Chubby Checker hits town. Here he explains why the dance he started, The Twist, captivated the country.

"I'm watching the girl, the girl's watching me and we're exploring our sexuality while being fully dressed. And it started with The Twist."

A new art installation at a museum known for its building instead asks you to leave that building and head out of doors.

"We have a fantastic--fun--art installation that's called Mi Casa, Your Casa."

That's San Antonio Museum of Art's Kelso Director, Katie Luber. We stood next to several red, steel sculptures that were in the shape of miniature house frames.

Renowned artist Carlos Cortes will be going to jail after pleading guilty to charges in federal court in San Antonio that he failed to file tax returns for four years.

U.S. magistrate judge John Primomo handed down the maximum sentence for the well-known sculptor, ordering Carlos Cortes to jail for a year and ordering him to pay the government more than $400 thousand dollars he owed in back taxes.
