California law aims to protect rights of sperm donors, surrogates

By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO Calif. (Reuters) - A bill aimed at protecting the parental and adoptive rights of non-traditional families in California was sent to Governor Jerry Brown on Wednesday in an effort to close gaps in a state law that have led to at least one high-profile legal case. The measure by San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a Democrat, would require sperm donors, surrogate mothers and the people with whom they work to have a child to fill out a series of forms detailing the rights and responsibilities of each person. “My bill represents an opportunity to have state law keep pace with the changes in reproductive technology,” Ammiano said. “With a few simple changes, we can help families thrive without needless legal battles or expensive court actions.” Legal issues around the parental rights of sperm donors have made headlines recently over a debacle involving actor Jason Patric, who donated sperm to a now-former girlfriend and is suing for the right to be part of the child's life.

What happens when an old, dead oil well gets 're-fracked'?

Drilling wells are pictured in Los Angeles Hydraulic fracturing, which has upended global energy markets by lifting U.S. Canada's Encana Corp invested $2 million to refrack two wells in Louisiana's Haynesville shale formation earlier this year, after seeing its production in the area dip 27 percent from 2012 levels.     "There were a significant number of wells that we considered understimulated," said David Martinez, Encana's senior manager for Haynesville development.     Using minuscule plastic balls, known as diverting agents, pumped at high speeds with water into the old wells, most of which are three to five years old, Encana blocked some the older fractures, or cracks.     "The thought is that the diverting agent will go to the cracks with the least amount of pressure," bypassing cracks with higher pressure and boosting the pressure of the entire well so output climbs, Martinez said.     He said the process can't be as precisely controlled as an initial round of hydraulic fracturing, in which water, chemicals and sand into are blasted into rock to unlock oil and gas.

Amid Afghanistan's escalating war, a battle to beat polio

File picture shows a boy receiving polio vaccination drops during an anti-polio campaign in Kabul By Krista Mahr and Mirwais Harooni KABUL (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of volunteers fanned out across Afghanistan this week, braving deteriorating security and distrusting parents to administer two chilled drops of the oral polio vaccine each to millions of children. Keeping the highly infectious polio disease in check in any country is a daunting task. Afghanistan is one of only three nations where the polio virus is still endemic, along with Pakistan and Nigeria. Only eight new cases have been confirmed so far this year, compared to 108 in Pakistan.

U.S. risk council takes next step in MetLife systemic review

The MetLife building is seen in New York Closing the evidentiary record is the last formal step before the Financial Stability Oversight Council can vote on whether to designate MetLife with the tag. The tag is applied to large firms whose failure could threaten financial markets, and it brings far greater scrutiny by financial regulators, as well as new capital requirements. The risk council later on Wednesday said it had closed the evidentiary record on a "non-bank financial company," but it does not name the firms in the process. MetLife declined to comment.

Hundreds rally in Ireland after rape victim says denied abortion

By Conor Humphries DUBLIN (Reuters) - Hundreds of people rallied in Dublin to call for a change to Ireland's abortion laws on Wednesday after a rape victim said she was refused a termination and instead gave birth by Cesarean section. The young migrant's case has reignited a debate about Roman Catholic Ireland's abortion laws, among the most restrictive in Europe, that sparked large protests before parliament voted to allow limited access to abortion for the first time last year. This poor girl suffered because she didn't understand the convoluted, stupid system here in Ireland," said Aoife McLysaght, a 38-year old science professor, holding a sign saying 'Forced pregnancy is torture'. I just want that time to be sooner so fewer people suffer." The young foreign national, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the Irish Times that she became pregnant as a result of rape that took place before she arrived in Ireland.

Oregon holds first public hearing on proposed coastal smoking ban

Oregon parks officials will hold an initial public hearing on Wednesday night into a plan to would make the state the first to ban smoking along its entire coastline. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission will conduct a series of such hearings, taking opinions from members of the public, before voting in October on the smoking ban on the state's 363-mile coastline. “I imagine a ranger would say, ‘You’re going to have to stop that, it’s not allowed,’” Oregon Parks and Recreation Department spokesman Richard Walkoski said. You’d really have to be a jerk to get a citation.” A similar ban on smoking in all state parks was approved earlier this year, with several loopholes added at the urging of the public – it’s still OK to light up in a private vehicle or at a rented tent site.

Travel with medications, medical devices can be daunting

By Kathryn Doyle NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - For international travelers who need to carry medical devices and medications with them, it’s not easy to find out the travel requirements at their destinations, and embassies in general aren’t much help, according to a new study. “The problem is known to exist but has not previously been published as we have,” said lead author Moses Mutie of the Faculty of Health at the University of Canberra in Bruce, Australia. “Most embassies focus on trade and tourism,” Mutie told Reuters Health by email. The researchers explored embassy and consular websites looking for the quantities and different types of medication allowed in the country for personal use, required documentation, customs information and details about travelling with medical equipment.

Ukrainian fighter plane shot down as clashes kill dozens

Another Ukrainian Fighter Jet Shot Down Near Russian Border A Ukrainian warplane was blown out of the sky over rebel-held territory Wednesday as fierce clashes between government troops and pro-Russian insurgents left dozens of civilians dead. Fighting intensified as Kiev appeared to ramp up a deadly offensive to crush the ailing rebellion in the east ahead of a fresh round of diplomacy that will see the presidents of Russia and Ukraine meet next week for the first time in months. Military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said a Su-25 jet was shot close to the second-largest insurgent bastion of Lugansk, where government forces claim to have battled back control over several districts in the past few days. Clashes in and around the other major rebel stronghold of Donetsk killed 43 civilians in the past 24 hours, local authorities said.

Afghanistan gives NYT journalist 24 hours to leave country

New York Times reporter Matthew Rosenberg speaks during an interview in Kabul Afghanistan has given a New York Times reporter 24 hours to leave the country, accusing him of not cooperating with an investigation into his reporting, the Attorney General's office said on Wednesday. Matthew Rosenberg, 40, was summoned for questioning on Tuesday after the newspaper ran a story about officials discussing plans to form an interim government and "seize power" if a deadlock over the presidential election failed to break soon. "Due to the lack of proper accountability and non-cooperation, the Attorney General's office has decided that Matthew Rosenberg should leave Afghanistan within 24 hours," the office said in a statement. "We were also never informed of a formal investigation and we do not understand how insisting on the right to a lawyer is not cooperating.” Afghanistan is in the midst of a ballot that has dragged on for months, with both candidates claiming victory after the June 14 run-off and allegations of mass fraud threatening to derail the process.
