The Pulse: State of the Union Preview

In Monday's edition of "The Pulse," a sneak peak at Tuesday night's State of the Union address; Russian security measures in Dagestan ahead of the Winter Games in Sochi; and the Grammy Awards making the news.

It was the shortest of sneak previews. In a six second video using social media, President Obama will announce in his State of the Union Tuesday night, highlighting new executive actions. Some, aimed at job training and retirement security programs. You can see the State of the Union right here on Fox 24 at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

As the Olympic torch is making its way to Sochi for the Winter Games, Russian authorities taking extreme measures in the name of security. In Dagestan, a surreal chokehold of police where there should have been festivity Monday. No sight of the torch, which is on its maximum security journey from the airport to the stadium.

Tech giant Google says it bought an artificial intelligence firm. And the London-based DeepMind Technologies is just the latest in a series of start-up purchases by Google. The company specializes in machine learning and systems neuroscience. Google confirmed the acquisition Monday. But it wouldn't say how much the company paid to buy the firm.

In Maryland, a 10-year-old girl recovering after rescue crews pulled her out of a well. She fell into a 32-foot well in Anne Arundel County this Tuesday afternoon. Technical crews pulled her to safety around 4:35 p.m. The girl has been transported to a local hospital. She is expected to survive her injuries.

The Grammy Awards handed out this weekend. And the artist who took away the Record and Album of the Year didn't sing a single note, or give an acceptance speech. Daft Punk won the two coveted awards at Sunday night's ceremony. The silent-and-helmeted duo also performed their hit "Get Lucky" with Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder. Lorde's hit "Royals" won Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo performance.
