(NEW YORK) Hello, fellow New Yorkers! Welcome back to another edition of the New York City Daily Roundup — the most concise way to catch the latest news from the Big Apple. Today is Tuesday, Jan. 25, and it is the warmest day of the week!

Temperatures will reach a high of 41°F on Tuesday, with a low of 24°F. Clouds will remain in the area for most of the day and will clear up after sunset, which is expected to be around 5:04 p.m.

Aside from the weather, here are the top news stories to follow this Tuesday:

1.) Mayor Eric Adams promotes anti-crime and gun violence plan

On Monday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams addressed the city and shared his plan to combat the uptick in violence and gun use. The "Blueprint to End Gun Violence" was a big part of the mayor's campaign while running for office and was brought to fruition within the first month of his term.

"We will have boots on the ground in every corner of the city," Adams said.

"New Yorkers feel as if a sea of violence is engulfing our city," Adams said. "But as your mayor, I promise you I will not let this happen. We will not surrender our city to the violent feud. We won't go back to the bad old days."

2.) Rangers clinch win over Kings in penalty shootout

The New York Rangers defeated the Los Angeles Kings by a score of 3-2 after a penalty shootout on Monday at Madison Square Garden. Rangers defenseman Adam Fox notched the winning goal against Jonathan Quick to seal the team's 28th win of the season.

“Haven’t been in a shootout since maybe my junior days,” the 23-year-old All-Star said. “I don’t expect to go too often so I work on other things.”

“I think he should be one of our top shooters,” Rangers coach Gerard Gallant said. “He doesn’t love to do it a lot but I think after tonight’s goal he’s going to get a lot of confidence from it. He’s got skill, he’s got talent and he made an incredible move.”

The Rangers return to action on Thursday when they head to Columbus, Ohio to face the Blue Jackets.

3.) Google launches partnership with four CUNY schools

Google will begin working with four schools in the New York City CUNY system to provide digital literacy skills to Latino students, according to AM New York.

“Through this partnership, students will have even more access to critical digital and job-readiness training that will help ensure they have access to good-paying jobs,” said Rep. Ritchie Torres (NY-15). “I’m thrilled to see the Google Career Readiness program implemented in our community and look forward to its positive impact on our students and their futures.”

“Ensuring Hispanic-Serving Institutions have the resources available to help students excel in the workforce is crucial in today’s competitive job market,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores. “We are excited to partner with Google on this innovative initiative and collaborate with HSIs to offer career services for students to graduate with the digital skills and training that can expand their employment prospects.”
