Labor takes final stand as Wisconsin prepares way for anti-union law

anti union vote WisconsinGov. Scott Walker stands ready to deal the Wisconsin labor movement its greatest blow yet. Within the next few days, Walker, a Republican and a likely 2016 presidential candidate, is expected to sign right-to-work legislation that would ban union shops in the state.

Wisconsin would be the 25th state to institute right-to-work legislation, which bars unions from charging service fees to nonunion members of the workplaces they represent. Organized labor fears that right-to-work laws create a free-rider problem: In the short term, employees in a unionized workplace can reap the benefits of collective bargaining without joining the union or providing any compensation for its troubles.

Marijuana Is Now Legal In Alaska, The 3rd US State To OK Pot

Pot legal in AlaskaAlaska's voter initiative making marijuana legal takes effect Tuesday, placing Alaska alongside Colorado and Washington as the three U.S. states where recreational marijuana is legal. The new law means people over age 21 can consume small amounts of pot — if they can find it. It's still illegal to sell marijuana.

"You can still give people marijuana, but you can't buy it — or even barter for it," Alaska Public Media's Alexandra Gutierrez reports. "So, it's a pretty legally awkward spot. That probably won't stop people from acquiring it, though."

palestinians on West bankIsrael's electric company cut off power Monday to more than 700,000 Palestinians in two major West Bank cities and nearby villages, and warned that more outages are coming if Palestinian officials don't pay millions of dollars in outstanding debt.

The outage in Nablus, the largest West Bank city, and Jenin, to the north, lasted about an hour, but could become a regular part of West Bank life if the Palestinian Authority and the local electric utilities don't pay their bills, the Israel Electric Corp. (IEC) warned.

Why Young British Jews Are Hiring a West Bank Lawyer

palestinian teens in Israeli military courtsMilitary Court Watch is an NGO that monitors the treatment of Palestinian youths in military court. In their 2013 report “Children in Military Custody: Progress Report, Two Years On,” they documented the experiences of 105 Palestinian juveniles who had been subject to prosecution in the courts. Their research shows that only 5% of the 105 juveniles interviewed were given the opportunity to speak to a lawyer prior to or during their initial interrogation.

Using that figure of 5% as a guideline, we could be looking an estimated 475 to 665 adolescents a year who will not have access to a lawyer until their trial. These statistics highlight the harsh reality experienced by Palestinian youths in the military court system. The report also provides clear insight into the upshot of having two different systems of law in the West Bank.

Citizen Four wins oscarThe Edward Snowden documentary "Citizenfour" won Best Documentary at the Oscars on Sunday night. Director Laura Poitras accepted the award with Glenn Greenwald and Lindsay Mills, Snowden's girlfriend, by her side.

Stephen Hawking Warns That Aggression Could 'Destroy Us All'

Stephen HawkingForget doomsday asteroids, global plagues and super volcanoes. British theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking says we're facing a much more immediate threat -- and it's our own behavior.

“The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression,” Hawking told contest winner Adaeze Uyanwah, according to the Independent. “It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or a partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.”

Leaked cables show Netanyahu’s Iran bomb claim contradicted by Mossad

Israeli lie about Iran leakedBinyamin Netanyahu’s dramatic declaration to world leaders in 2012 that Iran was about a year away from making a nuclear bomb was contradicted by his own secret service, according to a top-secret Mossad document.

It is part of a cache of hundreds of dossiers, files and cables from the world’s major intelligence services – one of the biggest spy leaks in recent times.

Brandishing a cartoon of a bomb with a red line to illustrate his point, the Israeli prime minister warned the UN in New York that Iran would be able to build nuclear weapons the following year and called for action to halt the process.
