RAMALLAH, West Bank, Feb. 23 (UPI) — A Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member called for immediate approval of a law that would institute harsher sentences for honor killings.
Hanan Ashrawi’s statement, which was released Saturday, followed the alleged killing of a 15-year-old girl by her father and a 17-year-old girl by her brother, Palestinian News Agency WAFA reported.
She called for implementing the maximum penalties against those who kill women.
Ashrawi said 28 women were killed in 2013 due to the lack of protective legislation and legal accountability.
She also called on governmental officials and grassroots organizations to eradicate the use of the term “honor killing.”
“Considering femicide crimes as family honor killings (or as motivated to maintain the family honor) helps protect femicide criminals and even induces them to perpetrate more crimes against women. It also helps criminals to escape punishment and disclaim responsibility to face this crime,” she said.

The decision by Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum makes Oregon the third state in the past month to cease defense in federal court of gay marriage bans, after Nevada and Virginia, as activists fight for legalization across the United States.
“The law in this area is developing, and it is now clear that there is no rational basis for Oregon to refuse to honor the commitments made by same-sex couples in the same way it honors the commitments of opposite-sex couples,” Rosenblum, a Democrat, said in announcing the move.
But it will not result in immediate legalization of gay marriage in Democratic-dominated Oregon, where a 2004 voter-approved amendment to the state constitution banned same-sex nuptials. While Oregon law bans same-sex marriages in the state, it does allow domestic partnerships and since October has recognized the marriages of same-sex couples wed elsewhere.
Opponents of gay marriage said they were disappointed with Rosenblum’s move.
Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, said Rosenblum “is shamefully abandoning her constitutional duty to defend the marriage amendment overwhelmingly enacted by the people of Oregon” and “She swore an oath of office that she would enforce all the laws, not just those she personally agrees with.”
In all, 17 states and the District of Columbia recognize gay marriage in a trend that has gained momentum since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June that legally married same-sex couples nationwide are eligible for federal benefits. The court struck down part of the 1996 federal Defense of Marriage Act.
Since mid-December, prohibitions on same-sex marriage have been ruled unconstitutional in New Mexico, Utah and Virginia by federal judges. The Utah and Virginia decisions have been stayed pending appeal.
Oregon gay marriage backers had planned to put a repeal of the state ban before voters in November, but said they will hold the 160,000 signatures they have gathered pending the outcome of the court case.
“Now that we have done the hard work of assuring a place on the ballot and moving public opinion, we have the ability to wait for the courts to do the right thing,” Oregon United for Marriage campaign manager Mike Marshall said in a statement.

MEXICO MARIJUANA LEGALISATION (Left-wing party to push marijuana decriminalisation in Mexico City)

INDIANAPOLIS Opponents of an effort to place Indiana’s gay marriage ban in the state constitution won a surprising victory Thursday as the Senate effectively pushed off a statewide vote on the issue for at least two years, and possibly longer.
In a parliamentary move that spared state senators a tough vote on the measure, the Senate advanced the marriage ban without the “second sentence” ban on civil unions. The House stripped that language from the amendment before passing it last month, and the Senate’s decision not to restore the language before voting Thursday means the effort to amend the constitution must start fresh.
Even if Indiana’s marriage ban clears the Senate on a final vote Monday, it would have to be debated again in the next biennial session, 2015-16, before it could appear before voters.
Senate President Pro Tem David Long, R-Fort Wayne, said many lawmakers sensed that the final say on the issue ultimately will be made by the U.S. Supreme Court. A federal court ruling this week that Kentucky must recognized same-sex marriages performed in other states was weighed in private discussions among Senate Republicans, and Long said he could sense momentum building for a high court ruling.
“In reality, I think the issue is going to be before the United States Supreme Court as I’ve said before and it’s either going to be a state’s rights issue and each state decides for itself or it’s going to be decided by the Supreme Court that it’s a violation of the 14th Amendment,” Long said. “One way or another they’re going to have the final say in this because the U.S. Constitution trumps a state constitution.”
Indiana’s gay marriage battle was playing out as federal courts in Oklahoma and Utah overturned constitutional bans and New Mexico’s high court overturned that state’s marriage ban.

The state Senate’s decision caps a sharp turnabout in Indiana, where just three years ago the constitutional ban passed the General Assembly with overwhelming majorities. But national attitudes on gay marriage have shifted sharply, and opponents of the ban were able to build a strong coalition that lobbied Indiana lawmakers heavily privately and in public.
Indiana’s gay marriage battle also opened a rift among Republicans in the solidly conservative state. Pro-business conservatives, including many who had worked closely with former Gov. Mitch Daniels, largely lined up against the marriage ban. While social conservatives, mostly aligned with Republican Gov. Mike Pence, fought hard to shepherd the ban to the 2014 ballot.
Some of the Republican Party’s strongest fundraisers, including former George W. Bush economic adviser Al Hubbard and former Indiana Republican Party Chairman Jim Kittle, opened their wallets for Freedom Indiana, the umbrella organization opposing the marriage ban.

Brazil, South Africa, Turkey and Ukraine are the emerging markets most at risk of a sudden stop, in the view of Morgan Stanley.
Thats defined as a halt or even a reversal in capital flows into a country, slashing access to international financial markets for an extended period and weakening the economy. The term is often linked to 1995 work by Rudi Dornbusch, the late international economics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge.
Mexico, Indonesia, India and Thailand are also in some jeopardy of such a phenomenon as investors turn sour on emerging markets, London-based economists Manoj Pradhan and Patryk Drozdzik said in two reports to clients over the past week. They wrote as central banks in India, Turkey and South Africa raised interest rates to shore up confidence in their currencies.
The Morgan Stanley authors evaluated the risk by looking at factors such as the reliance on capital inflows and credit, the size of the current account deficit, the legroom for policy and exposure to China. In the case of Brazil, for example, capital inflows account for almost half the money entering the country, total external debt is more than the size of foreign exchange reserves, the current account shortfall is almost 4 percent of gross domestic product, inflation is around 6 percent and government debt is about 70 percent of GDP.
The countries most in danger now face questions over how they will fund their budget and trade gaps and whether they can pivot to new sources of expansion, the economists said. Investors should monitor the processes of reducing debt and political splits. Ukraine, Turkey and Thailand have all witnessed social unrest.
While the risk of a sudden stop is higher in some economies and lower in others, EM economies remain exposed to the risk, Pradhan and Drozdzik said in a Jan. 27 report. If policy makers dont enforce the change and reforms that are needed to generate a new model of growth, asset prices will adjust by as much as is necessary to generate that change.
In a Jan. 29 report after the rate increases in Turkey and South Africa, Pradhan and Drozdzik wrote: this new policy awareness is by itself a positive and a step in the right direction.

The euro area is the major economy most at risk from the recent outbreak of emerging-market anxiety.
The region last year exported the equivalent of 3.1 percent of gross domestic product to Brazil, India, Indonesia, Russia, South Africa and Turkey, the countries most attacked by investors lately, according to Julian Callow, chief international economist at Barclays Plc in London. That compares with 2.4 percent for Japan and 1.3 percent for the U.S.

This frog species, which once hopped throughout Californias upper elevations, has dropped significantly in numbers, more than ninety percent in the past decade, due in part to chytrid, a skin fungus that thickens the frogs skin so they cant breathe.

Same-sex marriage in New Jersey has been legally recognized since October 21, 2013, the effective date of a trial court ruling invalidating the state’s restriction of marriage to persons of different sexes.
In September 2013, a judge of the Superior Court ruled that as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2013 decision in United States v. Windsor, New Jersey’s constitution requires the state to recognize same-sex marriages. The Windsor decision held that the federal government was required to provide the same benefits to same-sex couples who were married under state law as to other married couples. Therefore, the state court reasoned in Garden State Equality v. Dow, because same-sex couples in New Jersey were limited to civil unions, which are not recognized as marriages under federal law, the state must permit civil marriage for same-sex couples. This ruling, in turn, relied on the 2006 decision of the New Jersey Supreme Court in Lewis v. Harris that the state was constitutionally required to afford the rights and benefits of marriage to same-sex couples. The Supreme Court had ordered the state legislature to correct the constitutional violation, by permitting either same-sex marriage or civil unions with all the rights and benefits of marriage, within 180 days. In response, the legislature passed a bill to legalize civil unions on December 21, 2006, which became effective on February 19, 2007.
In 2012, the New Jersey Legislature had passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage, but it was vetoed by Governor Chris Christie.
Following the trial court decision in Garden State Equality v. Dow, the Christie administration asked the state Supreme Court to grant a stay of the decision pending appeal. On October 18, 2013, the Supreme Court unanimously denied the request for a stay. Three days later, on the day the trial court ruling went into effect and local officials had begun issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and some wedding ceremonies had been performed, the Governor withdrew the state’s appeal. This action removed the last potential impediment to same-sex marriages in the state.
New Jersey was one of the first states to implement a domestic partnerships scheme, after California, in 2003. Advocates of same sex unions sued to transcend domestic partnership in the case, Lewis v. Harris in 2006. The judges struck down the domestic partnership arrangement, and split four to three to allow the legislature to pass civil unions instead of allowing same-sex marriage. In December 2006, the New Jersey Legislature passed a bill providing for civil unions and recognizing other states’ civil unions.
The New Jersey Legislature enacted the Domestic Partnership Act, P.L.2003, c. 246, on January 12, 2004, which came into effect on July 10, 2004. The law made domestic partnerships available to all same-sex couples, as well as to different-sex couples aged 62 and older. The domestic partnership statute provides “limited healthcare, inheritance, property rights and other rights and obligations” but “[does] not approach the broad array of rights and obligations afforded to married couples.” For example, as Lambda Legal states, the law “required health and pension benefits [only] for state employeesit was voluntary for other employersand did not require family leave to care for an ill partner.”
