  5. Chancellor Angela Merkel's center-left rivals said Tuesday they would seek a parliamentary vote this week on legalizing gay marriage after the German leader backed off her conservatives' long-standing refusal to budge on the issue. Germany has allowed same-sex couples to enter civil partnerships since 2001. Other European countries have since allowed full gay marriage, but much of Merkel's conservative bloc remained reluctant until now. Merkel said Monday that she could see lawmakers taking up the issue in the future as a "decision of conscience," deciding in a free vote rather than along party lines. That comment came ahead of a Sept. 24 election in which all of Merkel's potential coalition partners, including the center-left Social Democrats of her challenger, Martin Schulz, are calling for same-sex marriage to be legalized. Parliament's upper house and the opposition Greens and Left Party have proposed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage, but it has been stuck in the lower house's legal affairs committee because the current "grand coalition" government of Merkel's conservatives and the Social Democrats was divided. The Social Democrats leapt on Merkel's comments, which came as the outgoing parliament — in which there's likely a majority for gay marriage — prepares for its last session this week. "Angela Merkel made ... a move yesterday and we are taking her at her word," Schulz told reporters. The "change of heart ... should be concluded this week," he added. http://www.sfchronicle.com/news/world/article/Germany-Merkel-s-challenger-calls-for-vote-on-11249271.php

To clarify for everyone, the details are still being hashed out, but the majority of the 90-day ban will likely start in 72 hours, the case is being heard in October, and the ruling may not come until the end of the Supreme Court's session in June, many months after the ban had actually been completed, unless the administration lengthens the ban which they'll probably get sued for as well if they try.
  7. A Southwest Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Houston was forced to make an emergency landing after a woman tried to open an emergency exit door, passengers say.

  8. The Tunisian LGBT rights advocacy group Shams condemned to the juvenile court action: “Shams strongly denounces this prison sentence for a 16-year-old minor for homosexuality. Remember: He is a homeless teen who found refuge with his friends for food and shelter. In addition, the court record shows that nothing was proved against him. [His refusal of an anal examination was taken as proof of his guilt.] And, if he was homosexual, the prison sentence will not change his sexual orientation because homosexuality is not a crime nor a disease nor a choice.” X
  9. The justices ruled in favor of lesbian couples by throwing out a December ruling by the Arkansas Supreme Court decision that upheld state officials' refusal to name the wives of the birth mothers as parents on birth certificates. The Arkansas court said state officials do not have to list both same-sex spouses as named parents on birth certificates, even though state law allows a birth mother's opposite-sex husband to be listed when the baby is not biologically related to him. Both couples received the birth certificates they wanted when they won in trial court. X

  20. Eight Emirati princesses were convicted of human trafficking by a Belgian court on Friday and were given suspended jail terms and fines in a case stemming from their treatment of servants at a Brussels luxury hotel nearly 10 years ago, their lawyer said.

  21. Two of the Pentagon's specially reinforced "Doomsday" planes, designed to withstand the heat from a nuclear blast, were grounded after being damaged by a tornado, the Air Force said Friday. The E4-B Boeing 747s, built in the 1970s during the Cold War, are essentially flying command centers that can refuel in the sky and are designed to remain airborne for days on end in times of crisis. The Air Force has four E4-Bs, which also shuttle the secretary of defense around the world. Two were damaged June 16 at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska when a tornado whipped through the area with little advance warning. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/pentagons-nuke-proof-doomsday-planes-damaged-by-tornado/ar-BBD6jst?ocid=spartanntp
  22. Germany’s parliament will not vote on same-sex marriage, despite an overwhelming majority of citizens supporting full equality. The highest court in the country has rejected an attempt by the Green Party to force a vote before September’s national election. The Federal Constitutional Court reported that it had rebuffed the Greens’ application yesterday for an injunction which would have forced a bill to be sent to lawmakers. A survey earlier this year found that 75 percent of Germans favour complete legal equality for gay people in life partnerships. X
  23. “The plan to introduce an ‘expat levy’ from 2017 was confirmed during the recent budget announcement, with charges of up to SR800 per worker to be phased in by 2020. Companies currently pay a levy of SR200 per month per expat employee, but only for expat employees that exceed the number of Saudi employees. But that will be gradually increased from next year, the government’s “Fiscal Balance Program – Balanced Budget 2020” document shows,” says Surana. From next year, the levy on expat workers will be gradually revised upwards, providing an additional impetus for employers to hire more Saudis. X
