Boston Marathon will be 'no-drone zone,' security officials say

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 23:21

Runners continue to run towards the finish line as an explosion erupts at the finish line of the Boston MarathonBy Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - The Boston Marathon course will be a "no-drone zone" this year, Massachusetts authorities said on Monday as they outlined security plans for the race that was the target of a deadly bombing attack two years ago. In addition to planning to search large bags and coolers, state officials said they would prohibit the use of small aircraft, popular with hobbyists and the tech-savvy, along the race's 26.2-mile (42 km) course, which extends from the suburb of Hopkinton to downtown Boston on April 20. Some 1 million spectators and about 30,000 runners will flock to the Boston Marathon next week, two years after a pair of pressure cooker bombs exploded at its finish line and prompted authorities to overhaul plans to protect the marathon’s course through eight Massachusetts cities and towns.  "We are again confident that the security measures in place will not interfere with the event," said Kurt Schwartz, Massachusetts undersecretary for homeland security and emergency management.


New Jersey gay therapy ban is upheld over boy's challenge

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 22:50
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Monday rejected a fresh challenge to New Jersey's ban on so-called gay conversion therapy for minors, saying the prohibition does not violate the rights of either children or their parents. By a 3-0 vote, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the ban did not infringe the First Amendment rights of minors and their parents to receive information and exercise religion, or the rights of parents to decide how to raise their children. The challenge came from a 15-year-old boy known as John Doe, who claimed to suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, self-hatred and suicidal thoughts as he struggled with his sexual identity, and his parents, who said they had sincere religious beliefs that homosexuality was sinful and harmful. The family plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, said their lawyer, Mathew Staver.
