  • Utah agrees to drop parts of disputed 2011 immigration law

    (Reuters) – Utah has agreed to roll back key provisions of a 2011 state law allowing police to check the immigration status of anyone suspected of being undocumented, a civil liberties group said on Tuesday. As part of a deal settling a legal challenge to the law, the state agreed police will not be allowed to detain or stop a person merely to check immigration status or to transport him or her to federal officials based on officers’ suspicions, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said in a statement. “Utah’s decision to settle this case sends a clear message to states and cities across the country that they have no business stopping or detaining people just because of suspicions about their immigration status,” said Jennifer Chang Newell of the ACLU, which was a party to the agreement The ACLU argued in a 2011 lawsuit that the law illegally interfered with federal authority over immigration matters …

    Looking to buy something that will keep on giving? Consider airline stocks. They have been doing incredibly well lately, but they aren’t even close to achieving maximum altitude. At least that’s what Morgan Stanley (MS) says about the airline industry, which has doubled the broader market by surging a whopping 115% since the start of 2013.

  • Israeli president opposes proposed law to give ‘national rights’ to Jews only

    Israel’s president, Reuven Rivlin, has voiced his strong opposition to a controversial proposed new law that would define “national rights” in Israel as reserved for Jews only. The “Jewish nation-state” bill would recognise Israel’s Jewish character, institutionalise Jewish law as an inspiration for legislation and possibly delist Arabic as a second official language. It is being promoted vigorously by the prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, and was approved by the Israeli cabinet on Sunday, but has attracted fierce criticism from opponents inside Israel as well as from the US and the EU. Critics contend that the law – whose final form of words has yet to be settled and whose language seems likely to be softened – threatens to undermine Israel’s declaration of independence, which gives equal rights to the country’s minorities, including Israeli Arabs, by promoting the idea of Israel as a “Jewish state” above one that is “democratic”. In an emotional critique of the …

  • 5G is on the cards for Huawei and partnered South Korean service providers

    Huawei Sanqi Li, CTO of China-based Huawei Products and Solutions, said the company has entered into close relationships with three South Korean telecommunication companies — SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus — to establish 5G networks. Though there are no official standards governing 5G connectivity yet, early reports have pointed to speeds as much as 1000 times faster than current 4G networks by 2020. At the closing ceremony of the Startup Nations Summit 2014 in Seoul, the Huawei CTO said the company would be working closely with the service providers on 5G, while it was still undecided as to whether it would build an RD centre in South Korea. “Though it is in its early stage, we are considering the possibility of building RD centre in South Korea,” Li said after the summit’s closing ceremony. Kevin Ho, president of Huawei’s Handset Product Line, said that the company was planning to build its 16th RD lab …

  • South Korea to fly medical workers to Europe if infected fighting Ebola

    SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korea said on Wednesday that Britain had agreed to evacuate any South Korean medical workers who may be infected with the deadly Ebola virus while working at a British-run clinic in Sierra Leone for treatment. Seoul will send a team of 10 medical workers next month to work at the new treatment center in Goderich outside the capital of Sierra Leone, Freetown where they will join British and American volunteer personnel.

Australia announced a similar agreement with Britain earlier this month in which London had given assurances that any Australian staff infected with Ebola would be treated as if they were a British citizen.

    Nov. 24, 2014: Protesters gather near a memorial in the middle of the street. (AP Photo/David Goldman) Many people are enraged that Darren Wilson has not been indicted for having shot Michael Brown.  I do not begrudge them their fury, but I urge them to see this as an opportunity rather than a defeat, and to consider what would have happened had the result been different. To put it simply, if Wilson had been indicted, his prosecution would have eliminated any hope of meaningful reform.  ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT The very premise of the criminal law is that the system which created the law is fundamentally sound.   The very premise of the criminal law is that the system which created the law is fundamentally sound.   In this country, the criminal law is invoked as a solution for disorder, complete in and of itself.

  • Fifty years later, American skating team claims Olympics bronze

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Fifty years after Vivian Joseph and Ronald Joseph skated at the Innsbruck Olympics, the American pair on Tuesday officially claimed the bronze medal. Two years after the 1964 Games, the International Olympic Committee had awarded the Joseph siblings the bronze medal after disclosing that the West German pairs team had violated their amateur status by signing a professional contract. Canadians Debbi Wilkes and Guy Revell moved up one spot to the silver medal, while the Josephs, who had finished fourth in the competition, claimed bronze.

The IOC never explained the medal consequences of its decision. On Tuesday, the IOC announced that the Germans and Canadians are each silver-medal winners, while the Americans are the bronze medalists in the pairs event. “An Olympic medal is the ultimate sports symbol of hard work, sacrifice …
