Prof. JOHN THOMAS (Law professor at the Quinnipiac University School of Law) Professor Thomas returned to chat about MGM suing Governor Malloy over the state's plan to build a new tribal gaming facility near the Massachusetts border that could compete with the planned MGM Springfield casino. The suit, filed Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court in New Haven, seeks to have the Connecticut gaming act allowing the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes to seek an additional casino license ruled unconstitutional. Is this just a stunt, or does it have some legal merit. Also, professor Thomas --early in his career -- practiced in Arizona and worked on issues regarding one of the first tribal gaming businesses in the country. He also tried a case in Papago tribal court.

SAMEERA SULLIVAN (Dating and Relationship Expert. She's also an online dating safety expert) STUDY: DATING A YOUNGER GUY MAY BOOST A WOMAN'S CAREER In a new study released by a dating site catering to women seeking younger men, it was found that women who date younger guys are more likely to have better career success. These women were found to be more likely to hold a top ranking position at work. In fact, about one in two women who were dating younger men were found to have managerial roles, while only 33 percent of those positions go to women overall. According to the study, Cougars are more assertive. They know what they want and are open about it. This could be due to the fact that "boytoy dating" increases the confidence level in women. In fact, the survey found that four in ten of the Cougars said they had "high confidence levels." Calling it the "knock-on effect," women become as self-assured as they are in the bedroom than they are in the boardroom. Women who date younger men don't need to play the, "When is he going to make the first move?" game. In fact, as the survey found, 65 percent said they regularly reached out to men first, and we're just as likely to seek out sex in new relationships aside from love. Could It Lead to an Early Grave? While dating a younger guy can make you feel young and fresh, science says it may also send you to an early grave. When an older man dates a younger woman, he's considered a stud. Yet when an older woman gets involved with a younger man, she's labeled a cougar. What does this study say? Is dating a younger man really good for a woman's career? What about the double-standard?

ADAM GOODMAN (Political Analyst and Strategist, and Principal at "The Victory Group") PRESIDENT OBAMA TO MAKE MAJOR SPEECH ON IRAN NUCLEAR PACT President Barack Obama is planning a major speech today to argue for both congressional and public support for the international accord to restrain Iran's nuclear program. The president also is meeting with American Jewish leaders Tuesday to promote the accord, which bars Iran from building an atomic weapon in exchange for lifting Western and U.N. sanctions that have crippled Iran's economy. Israel and many Jewish leaders in the United States have criticized the nuclear accord. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the president will discuss the key issues that explain why the accord deserves widespread support, and why Congress should back the international effort to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon through diplomacy. No one else has put forth a legitimate option to curtailing Iran's nuclear program other than military action, Earnest said on Monday.
