Reactions to killing of journalist James Foley

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 10:08
James Foley was remembered on Wednesday as a journalist who was passionate, persistent, big-hearted, always pushing closer to the story. The 40-year-old went missing in northern Syria in November 2012, and his death was shown in a video that militants with the Islamic State group released Tuesday to international outrage.

California bill would let birth certificates reflect same-sex parents

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 10:07

Jason Howe and Adrian Perez hold their twin daughters Clara and Olivia at a playground in West HollywoodBirth certificates in California would be changed to more accurately reflect families in which parents are of the same gender under a bill passed by the legislature on Wednesday. The bill, which now goes to Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, would allow parents to identify themselves as father, mother or parent when a child is born, a nuanced change from the current birth certificate that backers say is more reflective of growing rights and acceptance for same-sex couples. "This bill seems subtle but I think it’s going to make a profound impact on how people view each other," said the bill's author, Democratic Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez of Los Angeles. In March, a baby in Tennessee became the first child in that state to have two women listed on her birth certificate, although one was in the spot marked "father." In Florida last year, a judge approved an adoption of a baby girl that listed three people as parents on her birth certificate: a lesbian couple and a gay man, who was the sperm donor for the baby but sought a bigger role in his daughter’s life.
