Alabama same-sex marriages on hold despite judge's ruling overturning ban 26.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

Federal judge puts temporary hold on her decision to allow gay marriages in the state, but says she won’t wait for US supreme court to decide

A federal judge has put a temporary hold on her decision that overturned Alabama’s gay marriage ban, but indicated she will soon answer a key question: must state probate judges issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples when the stay is lifted?

US district judge Callie V S Granade on Sunday refused the Alabama attorney general’s request to put her ruling on hold until the US supreme court takes up the issue of gay marriage later this year. However, Granade did issue a 14-day stay to give the state time to ask the 11th US circuit court of appeals for a lengthier delay.

Jewish leaders call for Europe-wide legislation outlawing antisemitism 25.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Proposal would criminalise activities such as banning the burqa, forced marriage, female genital mutilation and Holocaust denial

European Jewish leaders, backed by a host of former EU heads of state and government, are to call for pan-European legislation outlawing antisemitism amid a sense of siege and emergency feeding talk of a mass exodus of Europe’s oldest ethnic minority.

A panel of four prestigious international experts on constitutional law backed by the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation (ECTR) have spent three years consulting widely and drafting a 12-page document on “tolerance”. They are lobbying to have it converted into law in the 28 countries of the EU.

Sundance 2015 review: Tangerine - juicy LA sex trade tale literally iPhone'd in 25.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Three smartphones were the tech used to capture this lively yuletide story of a pimp, a meth-head and two transgender prostitutes in modern-day Los Angeles Of all the many accomplishments of Sean Baker’s Tangerine, the most arresting is the fact it was shot using just three iPhone 5s phones , meaning permits weren’t required. That means Tangerine shows a side of Los Angles rarely captured on film – or, well, whatever the thing is inside an iPhone 5s that records video. We meet transgender prostitute Sin-Dee (Kiki Kitanna Rodriguez) on Christmas Eve as she hunts across the city looking for her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone) and the meth addict (Mickey O’Hagan) that he has been sleeping with. She’s followed by fellow sex worker Alexandra (Mya Taylor) and their stories intersect with Razmik (Karren Karagulian), an Armenian cab driver with a crush on Sin-Dee and ...
