Festivalgoers look at a noticeboard listing details of the day's events at the Verbier FestivalBy Michael Roddy VERBIER Switzerland (Reuters) - There are thousands of music festivals around Europe every summer, but only one lays claim to being held at the highest altitude and that's the one in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier, sometimes called the Davos of the music world. Argentine-born piano star Martha Argerich is a regular, and this year the big names have included Russian pianist Evgeny Kissin, British cellist Steven Isserlis and American violinist Joshua Bell. The three-week-long Verbier Festival, which runs from July until August 3, draws the moneyed elites and big corporate sponsors. George Clooney's smiling face is a fixture around the town as the brand ambassador for food giant Nestle's Nespresso coffee line, while Swiss private banker Julius Baer is another sponsor.

Voter ID law upheld by Wisconsin Supreme Court

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 22:38

People stand in line to vote during the U.S. presidential election in JanesvilleBy Brendan O'Brien MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a state law requiring voters to have photo identification to cast a ballot, although the law remains blocked by an earlier ruling by a federal judge that it is unconstitutional. The court wrote in its decision that providing a photo identification at the ballot box does not create a substantial burden to the voter, as claimed by the plaintiffs in the case. "Photo identification is a condition of our times where more and more personal interactions are being modernized to require proof of identity," the court wrote. Similar voter identification laws have become a political and racial flashpoint across the United States with Democrats generally opposed and many Republicans backing them.
